A few months back we were all surprised when it was announced that a new chapter in the Hatchet franchise was not only on the way but done, finished, and on it’s way to the fans.Â Up to this point the only way to see Victor Crowley – the title of this fourth installment – was via The Victor Crowley Road Show which consisted of director Adam Green, and some others associated with the film traveling around the country doing one or two night stands at local theaters but – thanks to Dark Sky Films – we know have home video release date – Feb. 6th. From the press release:
“Dark Sky Films today announced the official release date of VICTOR CROWLEY, the surprise fourth film in the fan-favoriteÂ Hatchet franchise. The film will be released on VOD, Digital and Blu-ray and DVD on February 6, 2018. Kept tightly under wraps for over two years, the slasher reboot unexpectedly debuted this past August. The highly anticipated release was shown in theaters across the country in OctoberÂ as part of the “Victor Crowley Road Show.”
Set a decade after the events of the series’ first three films,Â VICTOR CROWLEY reunites Hatchet mainstaysÂ Kane Hodder (Friday the 13th 7 -X’s Jason Voorhees) andÂ Parry Shen ( Better Luck Tomorrow) for an all-new, horrifying journey into the haunted, blood-drenched bayou.
In 2007, over forty people were brutally torn to pieces in Louisiana’s Honey Island Swamp.Â Over the past decade, lone survivor Andrew Yong’s claims that local legend Victor Crowley was responsible for the horrific massacre have been met with great controversy, but when a twist of fate puts him back at the scene of the tragedy, Crowley is mistakenly resurrected and Yong must face the bloodthirsty ghost from his past.Â
VICTOR CROWLEY’s ensemble cast also featuresÂ Laura Ortiz (2006’sÂ The Hills Have Eyes),Â Dave Sheridan (Scary Movie), andÂ Brian Quinn (truTV’s “Impractical Jokers”). Writer/directorÂ Adam Green proudly returns to the director’s chair of his series that, upon debuting in 2007, was energetically touted as a return to “old school American horror,” and whose maniacal fan-favorite villain quickly secured a place among slasher royalty.”
The key art also made it’s debut – you ready for this?
Victor – he’s just so damn angry!
So, just to recap – Victor Crowley, heading to DVD, Blu-ray, VOD and Digital Download on Feb. 6th!
