Hatchet II is a sequel to the popular 2006 horror film, Hatchet, and stars a string of horror film icons including Danielle Harris (Halloween 5), Kane Hodder (Friday The 13th) and Tony Todd (Candyman). We recently had a chance to sit down and speak with the films director, Adam Green, as well as actress Danielle Harris, to discuss the new film, its gory material, the unrated film's unprecedented wide release and the state of horror films today. To watch our exclusive interview please click on the video clip below.

Adam Green's Hatchet II picks up at the exact moment that 2006's Hatchet ends, wherein the quiet but hot-tempered Marybeth (Danielle Harris) is in a small boat in the Louisiana swamps, screaming for her life as she tries to free herself from the clutches of the deformed, swamp-dwelling killer Victor Crowley (Kane Hodder). Crowley has murdered Marybeth's family and other fellow vacationers who had come together on a tourist excursion in the swamplands outside of New Orleans. Marybeth escapes from Crowley and manages to make it back to civilization, where she once again encounters voodoo shop proprietor Reverend Zombie (Tony Todd), who had helped to arrange Marybeth and company's earlier, and ill-fated tour of the area. To help Marybeth and also serve his own secret agenda, Reverend Zombie recruits a hardened pack of hunters to head back into the swamp to seek revenge on Victor Crowley.
