After only a few days of being released unrated and uncut in select theaters around the country, Adam Green’s Hatchet II is being pulled from US theaters. The news was broke via Green’s Twitter. No other news was revealed except that an official press release would be released soon. His exact words on Twitter were;
To those asking: Yes, Hatchet II UNRATED has been pulled from US theaters. Press release coming tomorrow when we have the full details.
Hatchet II takes place right after the events of the first film where Marybeth (Danielle Harris) returns to the swamp where her group of tourists were viciously slaughtered by the deformed killer Victor Crowley. Marybeth returns with a group of hunters assembled to kill Victor Crowley once and for all.
Hatchet 2 in its opening weekend made less then $62,000 in over 90 theaters which needless to say is less then spectacular.
