Micro Review: Hatchet

Revisiting Adam Green's Hatchet years after its release I had forgotten how much fun the film is. More so than any remake or retread Hollywood has produced lately, this film captures the look and feel of 80's slasher movies in every gory detail. It's campy, corny and bad, but in the best possible way. Hatchet knows it's a loving tribute to 80s horror, and plays up to that fact. Writer-director Green has also created a new horror icon in Victor Crowley, whose back story and penchant for ripping people apart guarantee he'll be murdering horny, partying teens for years to come. A Good review from The Basement on this one.
