The buzz has got me going on Kane Hodder’s next film Hatchet, which is about a group of tourists on a New Orleans haunted swamp tour who find themselves stranded in the wilderness, their evening of fun and spooks turns into a horrific nightmare. The film, which is set for a Halloween 2005 release, looks f–king cool as hell. Read on for more updates…
On the amazing official website they report that “The LEGEND OF VICTOR CROWLEY” page has been updated with raw footage donated by KEGB – Shreveport, Louisiana. The footage was shot as part of an unfinished news report titled “Legends Of New Orleans” back in 1968. We have provided it here in it’s entirety.
In addition the teaser trailer has also been launched on the site.
Horrorview has the chance to interview writer/director Adam Green about the film, in which they report, “It’s about this boy, Victor Crowley that grew up deformed in the bayou of Louisiana and was taunted by kids. Well one day, these kids went to his house and started taunting him with fireworks and set his house on fire. Victor’s dad comes home and tries to save him, but when he goes to break down the door he chops into Victor, killing him. After Victor’s dad dies it becomes an urban legend that you can hear Victor crying for his father in the swamp at night. A group of people go on this haunted swamp tour in Louisiana, and well, bad things happen. It’s funny because the whole idea for Hatchet I thought up when I was 8 years old and at camp. The counselors would always try to scare the kids by saying “Don’t go there or Hatchet-face will get you!” and I’d always ask “Well, what’s he gonna do?” And they’d say “He’s gonna get you!” And I’d say “But what’s he gonna do?” So one night I made up this elaborate story about Hatchet-face and made all the kids cry. They wanted to kick me out of camp. But ever since then I’ve been like “I have to see this character!”
