It’s time to rejoice, Hatchet Army members, as today a brand new teaser for the BJ McDonnell directed HATCHET III has been released, showing us a glimpse of what’s in store for Mary Beth as she leads a SWAT team into the swamps to defeat Crowley once and for all (yeah right).
“HATCHET III 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.”
The teaser shows Danielle Harris returning as Mary Beth, along with many new faces to the series, such as Zach Galligan (GREMLINS!), Caroline Williams (TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE 2), and someone I’m really anxious to see go head to head with Crowley, Derek Mears (Jason Voorhees in 2009’s remake of FRIDAY THE 13TH). We’re basically in store for a showdown between two of the best actors to have donned the hockey mask, and obviously only one will walk away. Color me interested folks.
Along with the teaser, a theatrical release date of June 14th has also been announced, as HATCHET III 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.
