Below you can checkout a brand new clip for Adam Greens Hatchet 2 which frankly hits all new lows in horror. For me I have never been a fan of gore for the sake of gore and I am certainly not a fan of silly sexual innuendo in my horror movies. Adam Green is very talented as was proven with his film SPIRAL and this clip just presents him as another shock jock with a camera. In the unrated and very violent clip below a couple head into the woods for some sex, some cheesy one liners and a very bloody outcome. This is the definition of Torture Porn.
I hate to bag on Adam Green because he is such a cool dude but when I see him doing fantastic filmmaking like SPIRAL stuff like Hatchet 2 just makes me wince. Everyone has their own tastes in horror and without a doubt fans of classic American horror are going to line up in droves for Hatchet 2 and I am glad because if Adam Greens Hatchet 2 does well it means more projects like his film FROZEN and SPIRAL will continue to see funding for those of us who have a higher expectation then just tits, ass and gore!

A ferociously fun tribute to the old-school horror sensation slasher movies of the 80’s, HATCHET II is the follow-up to the popular original film, which was released theatrically in 2007 and became a sleeper-hit, gaining a wide following on DVD. Just as the 80’s had their signature murderous maniacs-HALLOWEEN’s Michael Myers of Haddonfield and FRIDAY THE 13th’s Jason Voorhees of Camp Crystal Lake- the original HATCHET marked the arrival of the latest and most lethal of the genre’s stalking murderers: Victor Crowley, a crazed backwoods killer stalking the bayous of New Orleans.
HATCHET II picks up right where the 2007 original film ends, as Marybeth (Danielle Harris fromHALLOWEEN) escapes from the clutches of the deformed, swamp-dwelling killer Victor Crowley (Kane Hodder from FRIDAY THE 13th). Marybeth returns to the Louisiana swamps along with an army of hunters to recover the bodies of her family and exact her revenge against Victor Crowley.
