Victor Crowley, the Hatchet sequel nobody knew was coming, is hitting the road for fans to experience. Director Adam Green will even be in attendance at some of the showings, as they roll this one out old-school style.
This is always a pretty neat idea and a unique opportunity for fans. And I am happy that Cleveland is on there, I may actually get to participate in one of these! (Cleveland never gets this stuff). But if you do not see your city listed, have no fear, kids — Green says more cites are to come:
“Only about HALF of them are being announced in this first wave as Dark Sky’s roadshow team is still firming things up with a whole TON of cities/theaters,” he wrote. “So when you see the dates- don’t fear if you don’t see a city near you on the list just yet. Your city could very well be announced in the coming weeks (if not days). I’m literally going to be doing a show in a different city every night for about 6 or 7 weeks straight.”
Victor Crowley is going to be an interesting film. I liked the first Hatchet, I thought it was a campy and fun gore-fest that as horror fans we sometimes like to throw on and just have a fun time with. It was nothing more than that to myself, but it developed quite a following after that, with sequels and comics and such. I think a lot of that can be attributed to the film starring fan-favorite Kane Hodder in the role of Victor Crowley, but I may be wrong about that. Also — whenever I read his name I sing it to the tune of ‘Mr. Crowley’ by Ozzy Osbourne. I can’t be the only one who does that.
The film’s official description reads:
“In 2007, forty-nine people were brutally torn to pieces in Louisiana’s Honey Island Swamp. 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.”
Victor Crowley’s ensemble cast also features Laura Ortiz (2006’s The Hills Have Eyes), Dave Sheridan (Scary Movie), and Brian Quinn (truTV’s Impractical Jokers). Stars Kane Hodder and Parry Shen also return.
