Horror fans bummed about the lack of franchise titles released around Halloween in recent years cannot complain about 2017. In addition to already announced films featuring Chucky, Leatherface, Jigsaw, and Pennywise the clown, fans of all things scary will be thrilled to learn Victor Crowley will soon return to theaters as well.
Last night, filmmaker Adam Green surprised a Los Angeles audience gathered to celebrate the ten year anniversary of his film Hatchet by screening Victor Crowley, a brand new film in the Hatchet franchise made in secret over the last year. The film fittingly picks up ten years after the events of the first film with Perry Shen, the only surviving character from the original trilogy, returning to the swamp where everything began.

The official synopsis for Victor Crowley reads:
“In 2007, forty-nine people were brutally torn to pieces in Louisiana’s Honey Island Swamp. Over the past decade, lone survivor Andrew Yong’s claims that local legend Victor Crowley was responsible for the horrific massacre have been met with great controversy, but when a twist of fate puts him back at the scene of the tragedy, Crowley is mistakenly resurrected and Yong must face the bloodthirsty ghost from his past.”
Victor Crowley will hit select US theaters this October (in just two months) as part of Dark Sky Films’ “Victor Crowley Road Show”. The newly announced tour will find writer/director Adam Green (and other cast) traveling the country to introduce the film at special one-night screening events across America. Internationally, the film is slated to bow at festivals worldwide.
