When Adam Green, the creator/director of the successful Hatchet franchise, shocked fans by secretly filming the fifth film of the Victor Crowley saga, it brought huge excitement to stunned genre, so when he spoke this week, we began to wonder if he had managed to pull the same feat again!
Not this time! Instead Green talked openly about the gory franchise and that we can expect a fifth film any day soon.
Here is what he said:
“Given the success of Victor Crowley, it’s a safe bet that we’ll be seeing the Bayou Butcher paint the screen red again,”
“One of the aspects of the original trilogy that I am most proud of is that the films fit together as one cohesive story, always starting on the very frame that the previous entry ended on. So just like how I had the original trilogy plotted out before we ever shot a frame of the first film, I had several films plotted out before I started shooting Victor Crowley as well“.
“The biggest reason that the Hatchet series has remained so strong over the years is that the same key people have been involved with the making of each film,” he adds. “That is incredibly rare in this genre. We also don’t rush out sequels like they are being mass produced on a conveyor belt and my crew and I only come back to the series when we are all truly ready to do so. The secret to how we’ve been able to fall back in love with Victor Crowley all over again each time is that we’ve always put a few years of working on other projects in between making Hatchet sequels.”
It more or less seems guys, that another trip into that deadly swamp is coming every soon!
The fourth film “Victor Crowley” will make its debut on the Horror Channel in the UK on MAY 15th at 9.00pm
