Directed by BJ McDonnell, Hatchet III reunites Danielle Harris (Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers) and Kane Hodder (Jason Goes to Hell).
Written, executive produced, and “presented by” Adam Green (who directed the first two Hatchet films), Hatchet III is helmed by McDonnell, who served as Green’s camera operator on the first two Hatchet flicks as well as Green’s Spiral.

This third installment in the new-age slasher series continues the legacy of Victor Crowley, played by Hodder, who’s best known as portraying Jason Voorhees in numerous Friday the 13th movies. 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 (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.
Hodder and Harris are joined by horror alums Zach Galligan (Gremlins), Derek Mears (Friday the 13th 2009), Caroline Williams (Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2), and Sean Whalen (The People Under the Stairs).
Presented by Dark Sky Films, Hatchet III is set to open in New York City’s Cinema Village and in Los Angeles at Laemmle Music Hall on June 14th. New cities have just been added – fans in Denver and Columbus will also be able to catch the film in theaters on June 14th. The film will also premiere on Video On Demand and digital download on the same date, and then released to Blu-ray and DVD on August 13, 2013.
