This Saturday, July 14th, Dark Sky Films and ArieScope Pictures will be distributing limited edition teaser posters for their upcoming horror sequel HATCHET 3 exclusively at San Diego Comic-Con. On-hand at SDCC to sign the posters will be writer/producer Adam Green, director BJ McDonnell, and cast members Kane Hodder, Zach Galligan, Caroline Williams, and Rileah Vanderbilt.

The teaser poster, featuring Kane Hodder as slasher icon Victor Crowley, offers fans their first look at producer Adam Green’s hotly-anticipated film.

The official HATCHET 3 signing will be held on Saturday, July 14th on the San Diego Comic-Con floor at area/table AA21 from 02:30 PM – 04:30 PM. Each fan who comes to the signing will receive a free limited edition poster, which will only be available at Comic-Con 2012. Fans can also catch Victor Crowley walking the convention floor throughout the day, and those who snap a picture of themselves with Crowley and tweet it (tagging @darkskyfilms), will be entered to win a Hatchet Army t-shirt and limited edition poster.

HATCHET 3 is a co-production of MPI/Dark Sky Films and Green’s Los Angeles-based ArieScope Pictures. The film marks cinematographer McDonnell’s directorial debut after having handled A and B camera operations on such features as Rob Zombie’s HALLOWEEN remake, Timur Bekmambetov’s ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER and Adam Green’s first two Hatchet films.

SYNOPSIS:

The story finds Danielle Harris hunting down the true secret to ending the voodoo curse that has left Crowley’s ghost terrorizing Honey Island Swamp for decades. Mears will play a brooding, pompous SWAT team leader who is sent in to contain the carnage strewn about the haunted swamp. Williams will play a fast-talking journalist who fancies herself an expert on the legend of supernatural stalker Crowley.

FIRST BEHIND THE SCENES GORE PHOTO FROM ‘HATCHET 3′ HITS THE WEB

BJ McDonnell has released the first gory behind the scenes photo from the set of HATCHET 3 on his facebook page. It’s no real shock to regular readers that, personally, I’m not the biggest fan of the HATCHET series thus far. The first film was…ok, but nothing special. The practical special effects were the star of that film. HATCHET 2, however, was godawful, with terrible story, acting, direction, special effects, and Danielle Harris’s weird, distracting eyebrow thing going on. I have low hopes for HATCHET 3, but who knows, I could be pleasantly surprised.

That being said, I realize a lot of you out there in gore land are big fans of the series, so I’ll continue to pass along news on the most recent film in the series as it develops. For now, feast your eyes on a bit of gutsy grue above.
