Danielle Harris Talks HATCHET III, Working with BJ McDonnell, Adam Green’s Presence on Set, AMONG FRIENDS, THE FARM, and More

by     Posted 1 year, 108 days ago

In Hatchet III Danielle Harris returns as Marybeth Dunston, the series protagonist seemingly doomed to repeatedly watch friend, foe, and family alike literally ripped apart at the hands of Victor Crowley.  The Hatchet films have always succeeded as pure slashers that deliver over the top old-school kill scenes, and revel in gooey, chunky, slimy practical effects without ever themselves too seriously.  With BJ McDonnell, cameraman for the first two films, stepping in to direct Adam Green’s script Hatchet III is bigger, more action packed final chapter to the trilogy, jam packed with guns and explosives.  While the addition of so much firepower diminishes some of the old-school slasher sensibilities, McDonnell is clearly in tune with what fans of the series have come to expect in terms of character and tone.  Odds are if you enjoyed the first two, you’ll have good time with Hatchet III.

The day after the film’s Hollywood premiere I jumped on the phone for an exclusive one on one interview with Danielle Harris.  We talked about the possibility of anotherHatchet film, the easy transition to working with BJ McDonnell, Adam Green’s continued presence as producer/writer, working in Louisiana, and the difficulty working with practical effects on the more outlandish kills.  We also discussed her directorial debut Among Friends, the status of The Farm, and more.  Hatchet III also stars Zach GalliganKane HodderCaroline WilliamsDerek MearsRileah Vanderbilt and Sid Haig.  Check out what she had to say after the jump.  Please be aware that there are some spoilers.
