YMMV / Hatchet

The novel:

The film:

  • Ensemble Darkhorse:
    • Jenna.
    • Amanda Pearlman from Hatchet III. Fans were not pleased when she was brutally slaughtered by Victor Crowley.
    • Perry Shen's characters (all three of them) count as well.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: The boat crash is reminiscent of the 2007 giant alligator film Rogue.
  • Les Yay
  • Moral Event Horizon: Reverend Zombie trapping Bob with Victor and then attempting to kill Marybeth in the second film.
  • Narm: Danielle Harris' attempt at a Southern accent in II.
  • Sequelitis:
    • II was met with rather lukewarm reception.
    • Averted with III. Maybe.
  • The Woobie: Marybeth. And there's also Victor himself.
