    What made the first film some-what good was that the fact that it was a throwback to 80s horror, meaning over the top (painfully fake) special effects and poor acting. You can tell the cast really didn't try much because they knew what the first film really was, a sort of tribute to 80s horror. In this film, the cast actually tries to act and it's bad, Not the worst I have seen but it's definently up there. Not to mention that the special effects were far more painfully fake (and at times very stupid) in this film then they were in the first. It was just awful. I think Hatchet 2 proved what the series really is - An overrated and pathetic horror series. The only people who will enjoy this film are people who have no true taste in horror and love over the top special effects that are so painfully fake that it's pathetic. Expand

    Outrageously over-the-top gore doubtless will scare off all but the heartiest genre aficionados.

    Say a prayer that there's no "Hatchet III" in the future.
  3. Hatchet II earns bragging rights with buckets of giddily over-the-top blood 'n' guts in sequences that are as gratuitous as they are amusingly ridiculous.
