'Hatchet II' Hacks on to Blu-Ray

Hatchet II attempted to make a splash in theatres by releasing without a rating from the MPAA.  AMC Theatres had agreed to show the feature, but apparently someone at AMC wasn't paying attention when they made the deal.  The film played for less than 24 hours before the theatres yanked the prints from screens, saying that they didn't realize how gory the film was. 

Hatchet II now has a blu-ray release date, so you and your buddies can revel in the backwoods gore.  After the jump, we've got all the details you could possibly want.

Hatchet II releases on blu-ray on February 2nd.  Special features include a "behind the screams" featurette, trailers, teasers, and other promotional goodies, and audio commentary tracks from production (writer/director Adam Green, makeup FX supervisor Robert Pendergraft, and cinematographer Will Barratt), and cast (Kane Hodder and Tony Todd).

Official synopsis: Hatchet II picks up right where the 2007 original film ends, as Marybeth (Danielle Harris from Halloween) escapes from the clutches of the deformed, swamp-dwelling killer Victor Crowley (Kane Hodder from Friday the 13th sequels). Marybeth returns to the Louisiana swamps along with an army of hunters to recover the bodies of her family and exact her revenge against Victor Crowley. The film also stars other genre icons including Tony Todd, Tom Holland and well known names including Parry Shen, AJ Bowen and others.
