Hatchet II

 (2010)

Hatchet II Blu-ray offers decent video and great audio, but overall it's a mediocre Blu-ray release

Marybeth escapes the clutches of the deformed, swamp-dwelling iconic killer Victor Crowley. After learning the truth about her family's connection to the hatchet-wielding madman, Marybeth returns to the Louisiana swamps along with an army of hunters to recover the bodies of her family and exact the bloodiest revenge against the bayou butcher.

For more about Hatchet II and the Hatchet II Blu-ray release, see Hatchet II Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 2.5 out of 5.

Starring: Danielle Harris, Tony Todd (I), Kane Hodder, Parry Shen, R.A. Mihailoff, AJ Bowen

Hatchet II Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

Hatchet II lurches onto Blu-ray with a 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer that's murky and dim, although this is all part of the low-budget horror aesthetic. As with most productions of this sort, Hatchet II was shot on video—the RED camera, specifically—and sports a dark, grimy palette that keeps bright color to a minimum. Even the ever-present, perpetually spurting blood seems more crimson than Crayola. Most of the film takes place at night, and you'll notice that the image sometimes struggles to maintain a balance between black levels and shadow detail. While delineation is good, as a result, blacks are typically a soupy, noise-speckled gray. Clarity, then, isn't always as crisp as it could be during the darker scenes, but whenever there's better lighting, the picture shows more than adequate sharpness, with fine detail visible where you usually look for it—facial texture, clothing, etc. The image displays some characteristics that are common to lower-budget shot-on-video features, most notably overexposed highlights and excess noisiness, although I also spotted a some major encode/authoring problems, including a few aliasing hiccups and strange glitch around the 1:13:00 mark that appears briefly in the top right corner of the picture.


Hatchet II Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

What's a horror movie without a kickass audio track, right? Thankfully, Hatchet II delivers in that department, with a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track that offers clarity, immersion, and plenty of burly, viscera-ripping sound effects. The mix plops you right down in the middle of a Louisiana bayou; water laps over the camera, wind blows through the trees, birds caw, and insects buzz. And this is all before you add in the grisly stuff— arterial blood spurting in the rear speakers, ghostly screams, chainsaw growls, and more. There's nothing that jumps out and screams, "Listen to how awesome this scene sounds!" but the track keeps you in the moment and on your toes. The music has plenty of presence as well, filling the soundfield and occasionally activating the LFE channel with gut-quaking bass. Dialogue, as inane as it is, remains clear and balanced throughout. A 2.0 PCM mix- down is also included on the disc, and English SDH and Spanish subtitles are available in easy-to-read white lettering.
