“At this time writer/director Adam Green is still battling the MPAA over the NC-17 rating Hatchet was unjustly slapped with – and we all know what that means (less theaters). So Green is taking the only path a man in the situation can take… asking the fans for help. Here’s what he sent us…
“The HATCHET trailer started showing up in major theaters across America this weekend playing before 28 WEEKS LATER. Now is the time to start asking your local theater to carry HATCHET when it opens on September 7th. Go in person, write, email, call – whatever it takes to keep on your local theater’s manager and make sure that HATCHET is playing near YOU on the very day it opens. Your voices make all of the difference. It’s in YOUR hands now. Do you want more PG-13 Hollywood remakes? Or do you want to see some old school American horror at the box office again? It’s time for the Hatchet Army to bring it to the front lines. We’re counting on YOU!” We’re huge supporters of this movie and will help push it into more theaters. If you are excited to see it, please make an effort and help.”
Ok, Fright Fans, that’s the story, now help make it happen for Adam Green and this ass kicking old-school American horror film. You all deserve to see this movie where it belongs–in theaters. No time to debate the politics of the rating $y$tem, just time enough to take action.
That means talking to those theater managers! Can’t get to a theater manager, or want to go right to the top then let’s write in, email, or call those theater chains. Be respectful. BE NICE.
