Hatchet III will continue the saga of Victor Crowley, the "Bayou Butcher," who first made his gruesome mark in 2007's groundbreaking Hatchet. Adam Green's Hatchet II sequel became the first unrated independent horror film to be exhibited by a major chain (AMC Theatres) in more than 25 years when it opened.
The movie is written and executive produced by series creator Adam Green, who also directed the first two films in the series. Veteran camera operator BJ McDonnell (Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, Project X, Easy A, Hatchet II) makes his directing debut on Hatchet III.
Hatchet II stars Danielle Harris and Kane Hodder return in Hatchet III, along with Derek Mears (Friday the 13th), Caroline Williams (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2), Sean Whalen (The People Under the Stairs) and others.
