Usually, horror filmmakers end up descending into the work-for-hire world of television direction after their career has waned a bit and the studios are no longer calling.

A few years back Adam Green set the horror hype machine ablaze with his self-proclaimed “old school American horror” film “Hatchet”. The film was breathlessly awaited with many expecting it to herald the second coming of the slasher film, but upon its release audiences were treated to a fairly entertaining but ultimately only middling slasher film remarkable only in that it wasn’t as brain-gougingly terrible as most of its competition.
