The original Hatchet came out in 2007, and despite being heaped with critical praise (as seen in this trailer for the sequel), I really wasn’t impressed, which is surprising because when it comes to horror movies, it doesn’t take much for me to enjoy them. But Hatchet took just a bit too long to get to the fun stuff, and even then, there wasn’t much innovative gore to drive it along. The story was a mish-mash of slasher film cliches, and the only things about the movie that I actually liked were the celebrity cameos from B-movie all-stars like Robert Englund and Tony Todd. Looks like Tony Todd made it back for the sequel, and from the trailer I can pretty well deduce that this will be more of the same stuff we saw in part one.
