Anchor Bay Entertainment proudly announces the Blu-ray™ debut of Adam Green’s slasher classic HATCHET on September 7, 2010. A fan favorite ever since its 2007 debut, the cult hit not only assembled some of the greatest modern horror film actors around, but gave film and horror fans the first new horror icon in a generation: Victor Crowley! SRP is $29.99 and pre-book is August 11th.
With a stellar cast including Joel David Moore (Avatar), Mercedes McNab (“Buffy The Vampire Slayer”), Richard Riehle (Office Space), and horror cinema legends Robert “Freddy Krueger” Englund, Tony “Candyman” Todd, with Kane “Jason Voorhees” Hodder as Victor Crowley, HATCHET is a gory throwback to the classic 1980s slasher/creature horror films. HATCHET on Blu-ray™ features an all new 1080p high-definition transfer of the unrated “Director’s Cut” with Dolby TrueHD 5.1 high-resolution audio, all the bonus features from the original DVD release, AND an all-new commentary track with writer/director Green and Victor Crowley himself – Kane Hodder.
HATCHET spins a terrifying tale of tragedy and comeuppance from beyond the grave. Victor Crowley is a hideously deformed boy, living in seclusion with his father (Hodder) in an isolated cabin deep in the Louisiana Bayou. When a Halloween prank initiated by local kids goes terribly awry, Victor is accidentally killed in a vicious twist of irony. Years later, a tourist group visiting New Orleans’ “haunted swamps” stumble upon the remnants of that shocking event, transforming an evening of seemingly innocent fun into a horrific nightmare, from which there may be no escape.
