Hatchet 3 To Get UK Television Premiere This December On Horror
By James Whittington, Wednesday 19th November 2014

Hatchet 3 Image 2Adam Green said today: “I am thrilled to see the Horror Channel broadcasting the UK television premiere of Hatchet 3 on December 20th. For those of us behind the gory scenes, this trilogy was a decade long journey that never would have happened without the extremely passionate fans that cheered us on while we slashed, laughed, and blew up everything in our path”

He went on to praise the UK horror fans in particular: "I’ve always said that Hatchet’s UK FrightFest premiere was really Victor Crowley’s birth into the genre stratosphere as that was the first time that the film specifically played for the very audience that we made it for. So it’s great to see Victor back on UK TV screens, courtesy of one of FrightFest’s biggest supporters”.

Made in 2013, Green’s script picks up immediately after the end of the last film and Marybeth (Danielle Harris) uncovers the true secret to stopping the voodoo curse that has left the ghost of deformed maniac Victor Crowley (Kane Hodder) haunting and stalking the New Orleans bayou for decades. Cue an entire police department face off with the infamous slaughter-machine in this action-packed, explosive sequel full of splatter stunts - all adhering to Green’s strict no-CGI rule. The first of the series to be filmed almost entirely on location in New Orleans, this marks the directing debut of cameraman B J McDonnell (The Walking Dead). This masterful montage of mayhem also stars Zach Galligan, Caroline Williams and Derek Mears.

Last word with Crowley’s creator: “Are the Hatchet films sick? Perhaps. But they certainly are fun and the long, long road in creating them was worth every difficult step. I hope the UK horror fans enjoy the television premiere of Hatchet 3."

Other Film highlights for December include the network TV premiere of David Cronenberg’s enigmatic body horror eXistenZ, starring Jude Law, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Willam Defoe and Ian Holm and there are four other UK TV premieres over the festive season to satisfy the cravings of the true horror fan: L. Gustavo Cooper’s psychological supernatural thriller Cursed, Scooter Downey’s powerful, award-winning Haunted, Tyler Oliver’s teen occult slasher Forget Me Not and Kohl Glass’ fantasy horror Orc Wars.

Top 5 horror movie remakes
Posted on Sunday 25th February 2018

Hollywood: a place of constant invention. Well, sometimes as it seems it always likes to look to the past for inspiration. Sometimes though, a remake (or re-imagining as they to call it!) hits the spot so here's our Top 5 remakes! Do you agree?

5: Evil Dead (2013)
Fans of the original movie, The Evil Dead had been waiting years for a cinematic sequel. Rumour after rumour followed but no one expected a remake of the story especially when rookie director Fede Alvarez was given the job to bring it back to life. It was backed by Sam Raimi, Bruce Campbell and Robert Tapert and given a decent budget, but few fans expected it to be so good. Bloody, ultra-violent and incredibly fast paced, it's a movie begging for its own follow up. Groovy!
