      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      The over-the-top gore, campy acting, and dim cinematography may be part of Hatchet's self-described old-school ethos, but irony alone can't sustain a horror film.

      Jules N Une jolie déclaration d'amour aux slashers des années 80. C'est un film décontracté gore et drôle rien d'autre à dire ! Dommage peut être que la VF soit horrible à écouter Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 04/06/24 Full Review Ricardo d Uma perca de tempo e de dinheiro. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 03/21/24 Full Review Shaminder D Cheesy and cliche but not in a likable way. Characters are annoying and are even more stupid than the usual horror protagonists. Complete waste of time. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 10/11/23 Full Review Courtney K it's exactly what you think it's going to be, however i did laugh more than once.

      Joshua Rothkopf Time Out Rated: 2/5 Nov 17, 2011 Full Review MaryAnn Johanson Film.com Lacking the satirical bite of the first Scream... this is mere pastiche that doesn't even wink at what it is pointlessly xeroxing from the past. Sep 22, 2010 Full Review Tim Robey Daily Telegraph (UK) Fun horror-comedy about tourists being picked off in the swamps. Tongues are firmly in cheeks; heads don't stay long on shoulders. Oct 5, 2007 Full Review Emilie Black JoBlo's Movie Network It’s one of those films that shows when you put horror fans with talent in charge, you get something great. Yeah, it’s not perfect. Yeah, it’s oh so very 2006, but it’s also so much fun, so bloody, it doesn’t hold back... Rated: 4/5 Sep 21, 2023 Full Review Martin Tsai New York Sun If you’ve never witnessed bare breasts or blood spraying from severed limbs, you are in for quite a ride. Apr 21, 2023 Full Review David Keyes Cinemaphile.org The movie is a triumphant reminder of the plausibility of physical showmanship. Rated: 3/4 Apr 23, 2020 Full Review Read all reviews
