Dark Sky Films has released the first teaser trailer Hatchet II, the sequel to writer/director Adam Green’s 2006 swamp-centric slasher film. I’d estimate that roughly 85% of the 1:17 runtime is devoted to text, intercut with brief flashes of the terrible acts of Victor Crowley. But sometimes with a scarer like this one, that’s all you need to rachet up the tension — particularly with unnerving quivering effect applied to the text. Regardless, I’m sure that if you were a fan of Hatchet, the sequel is on your radar, in which case you should absolutely check out the trailer after the jump.
A brief synopsis:
After Marybeth escapes from the clutches of Victor Crowley, she learns the truth about his curse, and heads back into the haunted New Orleans swamp to seek revenge for her family.
