Anybody who has seen an episode of Stripperella knows that tension runs high among the ladies of the stage pole. But when a serial killer in a skull mask begins hunting and butchering the girls of a California strip club with a hatchet, the dancers are forced to band together—somewhat—for protection, as any one of them could be next. Hottie Claudia’s homicide detective boyfriend Sonny is deep in the investigation, but who could be the culprit? Daniel, the first victim’s disgruntled ex? The geeky obsessive manager of the apartment building where all of the strippers inexplicably live? The deviant greasemonkey leering at the girls from the parking lot? Or perhaps even the slimeball strip club owner?
To quote a hottie from another film…"I’ll never tell."
With lots of lovely ladies, decent special effects, passable acting and—to put it bluntly—nipples aplenty, Hatchetman isn’t breaking any borders of the genre, nor is it winning any awards. But by taking the slasher film back to it’s 1980s roots of masked maniacs, helpless women, last girl standing, mindless boobs and bloodshed, it turns out to be a rather enjoyable guilty pleasure, and not a bad way for Freddy and Jason fanatics to squander a quick 90 minutes.
Be sure to keep an eye out for a very special guest appearance from a Furby.
