Every Victor Crowley Kill in 1-Minute Reminds that ‘Hatchet’ is Awesome

He’s torn faces in half. He’s literally ripped humans out of their skin.

I remember the exact moment I fell in love with the Hatchet franchise. Before the first movie came out, a particularly gory clip (the jaw rip, to be specific) was shown as part of a sneak preview at a New Jersey horror convention I attended. The crowd went wild. We demanded an encore. We all went even wilder the second time.

That was my very first introduction to Victor Crowley, who has to date appeared in three Hatchet films – the first two directed by Adam Green, the third by BJ McDonnell. In case you couldn’t already tell, I’m a huge fan of the franchise, which managed to tap into everything I love so much about gory ’80s slashers.

As Victor Crowley, Kane Hodder killed A LOT of people, and YouTuber TheSpringwoodSlasher edited together all of those kills into a badass 1-minute video for your enjoyment. The video reminds of a few things, including how gory the films are and how awesome the practical effects were.

More importantly, it reminds that Hatchet is one hell of a fun trilogy.

    Belt sander to the face is an all time classic horror movie death.

  • Sly Fox

    Some of these montages are unwatchable. This one tho is frightfully delightful

  • Brian VonDerahe

    Green needs to make another installment and with the title, “Hatchet The Final Chapter.”

    • Necro

      I could get behind that!

  • KSE1977

    I was never a huge fan of this series. I could not say why. I watched all three last year and it just didn’t quite work for me, aside from largely feeling like the same movie three times in a row.

  • The chicken man

    Kills yes. Acting/writing? Noooooo no no.

    • chuck

      Once you realize what sort of films they are (horror/comedy) I find the writing to be fine.
      I guess to each their own!

    Fan of these films since the first was released, and they contain the best kills of any slasher film in my opinion. The third film was pretty clunky as a whole, but part two is so fucking good. The way they build the Tony Todd kill into segments had me howling on first viewing!

  • Jérémy Kuprowski

    This trilogy is certainly one of my most guilty pleasure. It’s as bad as slashers can be… But oh boy does it delivers on the blood! And the fact that asian dude plays another character who gets killed in every movie… priceless!

    It isn’t very sophisticated, but it doesn’t need to. I’d rewatch the trilogy with a pack of beers anyday.

    There needs to be a Hatchet 4


  • bastardjackyll

    I’m up for another as long as Buechler directs.

    Never liked Hatchet. I bought into the hype and saw it at the movies when it came out and, as a horror fan, it was both a bore and an insult. This was a pretty depressing time for the horror genre when these obnoxiously juvenile personalities started popping up in place of filmmakers. It just all came across as poser-y in a frat way. All the output was blatantly derivative, with their influences taking up so much there was no room for any sort of originality. And they aped the most obvious and eye-rolling tropes. So there was some gore. And although it makes for an entertaining clip show, a horror movie needs atmosphere, suspense, characters, something engaging. Other that moderately amusing gore, Green put no effort into any other aspect. Okay, possibly self promotion and maybe casting. Ooh, he’s arbitrarily parading around some actors from better movies and giving them nothing to do! Talk about pandering.
