Movie"Hatchet III"

Criticwire Grade: C (2 critics)

Pull Quote: "The most anticipated slasher film of 2013."

Author: DreadCentral.com

Why It's WeirdBecause this is something you say before you see a movie. Being anticipated is not the same thing as being good. Okay, so people are looking forward to it. Awesome. But do they, y'know, like it once they actually watch it?

Out of curiosity, I looked up Dread Central's review of "Hatchet III" -- and guess what? It's not particularly positive. Drew Tinnin, who gives the film two out of five stars, says "Hatchet III" "doesn’t seem all that interested in expanding the legend of the bayou boogeyman, Victor Crowley, so much as it just wants to blow it the hell up" and claims there was "an excitement present in the first movie that even carried over to the sequel, but it doesn’t seem to have survived" to this third film. Sorry to cut the anticipation down, but that's the way it is.

Suggested More Accurate Pull Quote: "Inferior to previous installments in almost every way!"
