I was pretty impressed with Adam Green's throwback slasher flick Hatchet. While the title has divided genre fans in a lot of instances (some found it corny), I think Green's heart was in the right place and the film was a gory good time. So, naturally, I'm excited about Hatchet II -- the filmmaker's follow-up and the continuation of the Victor Crowley saga.

The film is set to make it's big screen debut on October 1st -- just in time to kick off an exciting Halloween season. The best part of this news is that Green and distributor Dark Sky Films will be releasing Hatchet II unrated -- with all the gore and Victor Crowley mayhem intact and the way it was meant to be seen!

AMC Theaters will be showing the unrated cut of the film as part of its AMC Independent program. This means the uncut version of Hatchet II will be shown theatrically in the top 20 markets in the United States.
