October Horror Movie Challenge - Hatchet II (2010)
Synopsis: Taking place immediately after the first Hatchet, Marybeth (now played by Danielle Harris) recruits a group of hunters to take out Victor Crowley.
The Good: It's not as good as the first, but Hatchet II is still a solid slasher. Hodder returns as Victor and Tony Todd is back as Reverend Zombie (who has a bigger role in this film). Other horror scene personas include Tom Holland (director of Psycho II, Fright Night, Child's Play, and Thinner) and Joel Carl Buechler (who's worked on over a dozen horror flicks).
The Bad: Basically if you didn't like the first, you won't like this.
Final Thoughts: The kills are cheesier in this one, but that's part of the charm.
In Your Game: There's nothing new to add to your cinematic unisystem arsenal, so here are Victor's stats again (for convenience).
