Adam Green's Hatchet is a funny and gory film pays tribute to the slasher boom of the 1980s by placing more hapless teens in the path of an indestructible maniac. Victor Crowley, a deformed Louisiana swamp dweller who returns from an apparent fiery death to lay waste to a mixed bag of tourists and Mardi Gras revelers who've wandered into his turf on a "haunted swamp" tour. Hatchet takes the genre to a whole new level and creates not only a new Icon in horror but also a cult classic all it's own.
Besides the terrific cast that includes Kane Hodder and Joel Moore there are also cameos by genre vets Robert Englund and Tony Todd, as well as Joshua Leonard from The Blair Witch Project.
Now for the first time the film is available on Blu-ray and comes packed with Special Features that include:
Audio Commentary with Co-Producer/Writer/Director Adam Green and Star Kane Hodder
Audio Commentary with Co-Producer/Writer/Director Adam Green, Co-Producer/Cinematographer Will Barratt and Actors Tamara Feldman, Joel David Moore and Deon Richmond

In a time when horror has become over run with remakes, sequels and films that just take themselves too serious Hatchet was a breath of fresh air back in 2006 and with the sequel coming to theaters soon there is no better time to own this terrific film. I don't have to tell those of you that have seen the film just how much fan it is but for those that never seen it there is no better time to own than now. The sound and picture on the Blu-ray disc are incredible making this one of the must-own Blu-rays of the year. You can order the Blu-ray now HERE.
