Last night at Hollywood’s ArcLight Cinema at an event billed as a ’10th Anniversary’ fan screening of his 2006 slasher masterpiece ‘Hatchet‘ writer/director Adam Green took everyone by surprise and premiered an unannounced new instalment to the franchise titled ‘VICTOR CROWLEY‘!
The film is set a decade after the events of the first three hatchet films and sees Kane Hodder return as Victor Crowley alongside a cast including Parry Shen (Better Luck Tomorrow), Dave Sheridan (Scary Movie), Felissa Rose (Sleepaway Camp) & Laura Ortiz (Holliston)
‘Lone survivor Andrew Yong (Parry Shen) has spent over a decade claiming that local legend Victor Crowley was responsible for the deaths of the forty-nine people killed in the original trilogy of films. Yong’s allegations have been met with widespread disbelief, 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’
Also appearing is Brian ‘Q’ Quinn (Impractical Jokers) in a major role and many cool cameos are also to be expected.
Adam Green said:
“I couldn’t be happier to partner with Dark Sky Films and bring Victor Crowley back to horror fans around the world. Resurrecting the series for its tenth anniversary was our way of saying thank you to everyone in The Hatchet Army and beyond who have supported this series since its inception. This bloodbath is for all of you.”
Green had in-fact been teasing an unnamed project for over a year on his podcast ‘Movie Crypt’ that he hosts with fellow writer/director Joe Lynch.
VICTOR CROWLEY screens at Horror Channel’s FrightFest on Saturday 26 August at Cineworld Leicester Sq.
