The cast of HATCHET III is starting to rival that of any Rob Zombie movie as far as the presence of recognizable horror icons is concerned. With a line-up that already includes Kane Hodder, Danielle Harris, Derek Mears, Caroline Williams, Sean Whalen, Diane Goldner and Jason Trost, the HATCHET team has now thrown in a few new names:
Zach Galligan, forever ensconced in horror fans' hearts for his contributions to the GREMLINS and WAXWORK pictures, has joined the BJ McDonnell film. He'll be playing "Sheriff Fowler."
In addition, Cody Blue Snider - the son of legendary Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider - has also climbed aboard the film; he'll take on the role of "Deputy Schneiderman," a gun-loving, heavy artillery-carrying area police officer joining in the assault on Victor Crowley.
Lastly, Rileah Vanderbilt, last seen playing young Victor in HATCHET II, is back in a new role, that of "Mikaela Dougherty" – a SWAT Team member sent in to Honey Island Swamp as part of the search and recovery team.
The film's plot: As a search and recovery team heads into the haunted swamp to pick up the pieces and carnage left behind from the first two films, Marybeth (Danielle Harris) hunts down the true secret to ending the voodoo curse that has left the ghost of Victor Crowley haunting and terrorizing Honey Island Swamp for decades.
Shooting on HATCHET III is currently underway in Louisiana.
