Adam Green’s Hatchet franchise returns for a third outing with BJ McDonnell directing. The new horror is also making its way to the Monsterpalooza festival, and gthose lucky enough to be going will be treated to some brand new footage, plus a rather cool poster. The poster can be seen below, enjoy!
Hatchet 3 has been given a US theatrical release date of June 14th, although it is limited. The film is set to open in New York City’s Cinema Village and in Los Angeles at Laemmle Music Hall. Opening week will feature special appearances by cast and crew, followed by Q&A’s at each location. Additional cities will be announced at a later date.
Directed by BJ McDonnell and written and produced by Adam Green, Hatchet 3 stars Danielle Harris, Kane Hodder, Derek Mears, Cody Blue Snider, Zach Galligan, Rileah Vanderbilt, Caroline Williams, Diane Goldner, Jason Trost, and Sean Whalen.
The film continues the tale of the now-iconic villain Victor Crowley (Kane Hodder). As a search and recovery team heads into the haunted swamp to pick up the pieces and carnage left behind from the first two films, Marybeth (Danielle Harris) hunts down the true secret to ending the voodoo curse that has left the ghost of Victor Crowley haunting and terrorizing Honey Island Swamp for decades.
Also revealed today is the official poster for the Eli Roth produced disaster horror flick, Aftershock. The poster has some gruesome images of dead bodies and carnage to give a good impression of what we can expect from the film directed by Nicolas Lopez.
Aftershock is directed by Nicolas Lopez. Roth will be starring alongside singer Selena Gomez and Ariel Levy, Nicolas Martinez, Lorenza Izzo, Natasha Yarovenko, Andrea Osvart and Miguel Asensio will also feature in the film. Roth and director Lopez wrote the script together, with Lopez recounting some of his own experiences from a devastating Earthquake in Chile in 2010.
Chile has it all: gorgeous landscapes, smokin’- hot women, cool dudes, great wine, and the wildest parties. For a hapless American tourist, nicknamed Gringo (Eli Roth) by his two Chilean pals Ariel (Ariel Levy) and Pollo (Nicolás Martínez), the trip has been heaven on earth — except that he just can’t hook up with the ladies. Gringo’s luck seems to change when the group meets a trio of babes — Russian model Irina (Natasha Yarovenko), non-stop party girl Kylie (Lorenza Izzo) and her serious sister Monica (Andrea Osvárt) — who agree to accompany them on a trip to the coastal town of Valparaíso. The new friends are having the best of times whooping it up in a dance club, until a violent earthquake brings the entire city down around them. With this one-time paradise now a landscape of death and destruction that’s seething with terror and panic, our unlucky heroes must run for their lives from looters, escaped convicts, and the inevitable aftershocks.
