Surprise MHHFF 2015 Announcement: Rare Unrated 35mm Screening of “HATCHET” w/ live Green & Hodder Q&A!


Yesterday, FANGORIA and Mile High Horror Film Festival 2015 proudly announced the first wave of programming for the anticipated Colorado-based event as well as a 10th Anniversary Screening of THE DEVIL’S REJECTS with a live Sid Haig Q&A. However, for those thinking that would be it for this week’s announcements, think again, as FANGORIA is excited to report that MHHFF 2015 will be hosting a rare screening of the Unrated 35mm cut of Adam Green’s HATCHET, which will be followed by a live Q&A with Green and star Kane Hodder!

That’s right: fans of the director’s seminal slasher will get a chance to see the film the way it was meant to be seen, as the original theatrical run of the film was the trimmed, R-rated studio cut and outside of the film’s festival run, this cut of the film very rarely receives theatrical exhibition. Add to that the appearance of Green (who will also be moderating the TALES OF HALLOWEEN Q&A with Neil Marshall) and Hodder at the festival and horror hounds will find a definitive HATCHET experience at Mile High Horror Film Festival 2015!


Of course, this screening joins the myriad macabre events happening from October 1st to 4th in Littleton, CO, which includes:

  • THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA (1925) with Ron Chaney Q&A
