Ten years after the events of the original movie, Victor Crowley is mistakenly resurrected and proceeds to kill once more. The film starts out great, but wanes when we get to the been there-done that Crowley scenes. If you’re a Horror fan (though this film has so many belly-laughs you could just as easily categorize it as Comedy) you owe it to yourself to check out the latest and greatest installment of the Hatchet series. The kills are vicious, the blood flows freely and Victor Crowley is more menacing than ever. Director Adam Green really managed to assemble an all-star cast, with Laura Ortiz the standout as Rose.
Movie Quality: 7/10
The print is presented in 1080p/AVC MPEG-4 with a 2.40:1 aspect ratio. Colors are very bold and vibrant as they pop off the screen in many scenes throughout the film. It screams pop with nice details. Blacks are also very deep. Fleshtones also have excellent details with proper lighting that gives faces a more natural look.
Print Quality: 9/10
The audio is presented in DTS-HD MA lossless 5.1 mix. The soundfield is utterly amazing in this film as the rears take full blown advantage of all the action taking place throughout the film. Any sound that you can think of in “Victor Crowley” comes through so vibrant and loud that there were a few times I thought my house was going to blow away. The dialogue mix is also well balanced with the soundfield which I am happy to report.
