Hatchet III

Hatchet III Blu-ray delivers great video and superb audio, but overall it's a mediocre Blu-ray release

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

Hatchet III Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Camera operator-turned-director BJ McDonnell has given Hatchet III a slightly more cinematic look than the first two films, shooting in the anamorphic 2.40:1 ratio as opposed to the taller 1.85:1. It's also clear that he wanted the movie to look like it was shot on film, even though it was shot digitally with Red cameras. In post-production, a layer of 16mm-simulating film grain was applied over the image, giving it a gritty look that approximates the style of low-budget horror outings from the 1970s. This is an intentional stylistic choice—so don't go asking why the picture is so grainy—and it works well. (It's certainly an improvement over Hatchet II, which had a cheap-looking digital glossiness.) The film's 1080p/AVC- encoded Blu-ray presentation seems true to McDonnell's vision, which means that it definitely won't be the sharpest, crispest film you'll see this year, but that the image does have plenty of texture and character. There's no digital noise reduction here—that would be counterproductive—and no edge enhancement or other obvious issues. The decision to use a grain overlay does soften the picture somewhat, but there's still a strong degree of high definition detail, particularly in closeups, where skin and clothing textures remain visible. Color is adequately balanced and graded too; considering how much of the film takes place at night, it's something of a minor miracle that there's little crush in the shadows. No real problems here, providing you know up-front that this is going to be a heavily grainy movie.


Hatchet III Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Hatchet III features a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track that's loud, bass-heavy, and filled with wildly exaggerated sound effects. The rip of a chainsaw. A face pulped by a boot heel. Surging electricity. Gloopy squishes of viscera. Gunshots in all directions and explosions that send debris ricocheting through the soundfield. In general, the mix makes good use of the surround speakers, which—when not occupied with crazy cross- channel movements—are busy pumping out ambience, like swamp sounds and local jail clamor. You can also expect lots of speed-riffing metal music. I wouldn't call this a reference-listening track, but it's forceful, clear, and suits this kind of movie. Dialogue, as dumb as it often is, is always clear and understandable, and the disc includes optional English SDH and Spanish subtitles for those who might need or want them.
