One of my favourite slashers

I consider this one of my favourite slashers and a very underrated one too. Feels like a good homage to Friday The 13th with all the gory kills. I have also seen the three sequels and here is my opinion on them: Hatchet II I love even more than the first, Hatchet III is decent but gets too corny at times, and Victor Crowley (Hatchet IV) is just AWFUL. I would say just watch this, II, and III but that's it

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
age 7+


tons of sex and butts and boobs and a man poops in a woman's mouth and she swallows it and it comes out her butthole and the man sucks it out
