A.J., you might be the first person I agree with on this thread. I bought the first "Hatchet" a few years ago, and I don't know what the rest of you see in it. It was certainly enhanced by fantastic death scenes, but the script was terrible. It was supposed to pay homage to slasher films of the `80's, and their effort in doing so was insulting. I've since gotten rid of the DVD, and have not seen the first sequel. I'm all for new franchses being launched in limited theaters or straight-to-video, since the old franchises have been buried. However, the first "Hatchet" is no "Wrong Turn 1" or "2." Even "Wrong Turn 3" is better. I'm being tough on "Hatchet," but I'm glad it does have fans. If it didn't, it would be a waste of celluloid.
