In reading this site, you are often bombarded with that which is tough to watch — the gory, the violent and the malicious and delicious. It’s not really my style, but it does give the site balance. It’s why we keep the likes of Robert Fure and Brian Salisbury around — think of it as our genre-related diversity plan. And it attracts a wide range of readers. Though I suspect that the number of readers who just like free stuff is a higher number and a wider range. Which is good, because today we combine the two when we give away a few copies of Adam Green’s Hatchet II on Blu-ray (in stores February 1, 2011). Read on for the gory details.
Here is what’s up for grabs: two (2) lucky winners will score themselves a copy of Hatchet II on Blu-ray disc. All you have to do is be one of our many folks who have hit the “Like” button on our Facebook page. That’s step one. The second step is to head on over to the aforementioned Facebook page and find the thread about killing Victor Crowley. Answer the question and your fate is sealed: you’re in the running for the prize. One winner will be chosen randomly from all entries, the other will be chosen based on awesomeness of response as judged by the experts on our staff. So make it count.
Readers from all areas of the world are eligible to win, though we must note that the Blu-ray disc is Region 1, so it may not play for our friends in foreign lands. The flick is unrated, so you will need to be over the age of 18 in order to win. Go forth, kill and win the prize, my friends.

HATCHET II picks up right where the original Hatchet ended. The quiet but hot-tempered Marybeth (Danielle Harris, Halloween) barely escapes the clutches of the mysterious Crowley (Kane Hodder, Friday the 13th), who has already murdered all of Marybeth’s friends and other vacationers in New Orleans swamp country.
Marybeth recruits a team of hired guns and returns to the bayou to exact her revenge, but quickly discovers that even with an army of hunters at her side the murderous fury of Crowley cannot be contained. Ultimately, it will be up to Marybeth alone to defeat the seemingly indestructible Crowley, but not before learning the truth about a twisted secret he shares with her own family.
The film stars some of the most iconic names in horror including Kane Hodder (aka Jason Voorhees), Tony Todd (Candyman), Tom Holland (Director of Child’s Play), R.A. Mihailoff (aka Leatherface) and scream queen Danielle Harris (Rob Zombie’s Halloween, Stake Land).
