Victor Crowley will kill again in Hatchet 3

And we in The Basement say hells yeah!!

Hatchet 2 didn't perform all that well at the box office when it was released last October, but it isn't so much the film's fault as the MPAA. The rating board failed to give it an R and unrated cuts were pulled from theatres. In other words, it didn't stand a chance.

But the crew over at Arrow in the Head report Hatchet 2 has done well for itself on DVD and VOD and, if we might editorialize, deservedly so. Shawn and I gave the film a solid Good on the show several weeks back.

What does that mean? Hatchet 3 is on its way bitches!

ArieScope Pictures is co-producing with Dark Sky and writer/director Adam Green will be back. Here's what Green had to say, according to AITH:

"We already had a possible story-line for Hatchet 3 worked out before we began shooting Hatchet II, so my cast, crew and I are beyond excited to see that the story and legacy of Victor Crowley will indeed continue. For a little indie movie that I dreamt up when I was just eight years old, it has been absolutely surreal to watch it turn into a modern-day slasher franchise."

We can only hope/pray/dream that Danielle Harris (picture) will also be back. It's great to see a deserving horror franchise continue for a change as I've yet to meet a genre fan who hasn't liked the first two films.

As always, we'll keep you posted as the project moves forward.
