Hatchet is an American slasher film franchise consisting of four films, with a fifth one rumored to be in development. The franchise primarily focuses on urban legend Victor Crowley, as well as his extremely violent kills.

The series consists of four films, starting with Hatchet and followed by three sequels, Hatchet II and Hatchet III, and Victor Crowley. A fifth film has been teased by creator Adam Green, which would leave behind the usual setting of Honey Island Swamp and instead go for a more suburban setting.[1] The series features multiple appearances by slasher villain actors, including: Kane Hodder (Jason Voorhees), Robert Englund (Freddy Krueger), Tony Todd (Candyman), R. A. Mihailoff (Leatherface), Derek Mears (Jason Voorhees in the 2009 reboot), Tyler Mane (Michael Myers in the 2007 remake) and Felissa Rose (Angela Baker).
