Hatchet is an American horror franchise that consists of three slasher films. The main antagonist in the series is Victor Crowley, a deformed boy who was kept hidden from the world by his father. One Halloween, a group of kids decided to scare Victor by throwing fireworks into his house, but it was engulfed in flames. Victor's father tried hacking down the door with a hatchet, but because Victor was pressed up against the other side of the door, he hit him in the face with the hatchet, killing him. Victor's father died of a broken heart ten years later. Victor roams the swamp as a vengeful spirit and kills people who come to Honey Island Swamp. Each entry in the series features a different cast of characters, including a final girl who defeats the killer in the end. Recurring characters in the series include Reverend Zombie, Ben, and Jack Cracker.


Hatchet is the first film in the Hatchet series. The film opens with Victor murdering two alligator hunters, Sampson and his son Ainsley, when they enter Victor's swamp seeking gators. A few days later a tour group crashes and sinks their boat near the Crowley house. Amongst them is Marybeth, who joined the tour to learn the whereabouts of Sampson and Ainsley, her father and brother. Despite Marybeth's warnings, and Victor's cries echoing throughout the swamp, the group finds themselves outside the Crowley house. He emerges from the house and kills off most of the group. In retaliation the remaining survivors douse Victor in gasoline and set him on fire, but a sudden downpour extinguishes the flames, leaving Victor unharmed. He continues to chase the survivors and is believed to be dead after accidentally impaling himself through the neck on a gate post. However he manages to continue pursuing the two remaining survivors, and when they board a boat to escape he pulls Marybeth into the water and incapacitates the other survivor (but in the 3rd film, he kills him by throwing a hatchet at him). He then pulls her back out of the water and holds her while she screams in terror.

Ainsley Dunston[edit]

Ainsley is the son of Samson Dunston and the brother of Marybeth Dunston. After the death of his mother, he began hunting alligators to make ends meet. He leaves the fishing boat to urinate, but as soon as he returns he discovers his father has been killed. Ainsley is then mutilated by Crowley.

In Hatchet II Zombie, after Marybeth arrives at his shop, tells her an extended version of the Victor Crowley story. Zombie takes Marybeth and a group of gunmen, including Uncle Bob, to kill Crowley. After Crowley kills the gunmen, Zombie reveals he had done this because Sampson, Marybeth's uncle, and another gunman named Trent, had been the ones that started the fire that killed Crowley. Zombie believed that, after Crowley killed them, he would rest in peace.

  • Appeared in: Hatchet, Hatchet II, Hatchet III,

Victor Crowley is the main antagonist in the Hatchet series. He first appeared in Hatchet as the vengeful spirit of a deformed man who was tragically killed by his father on Halloween night. Victor Crowley was conceived through an affair involving his father, Thomas, and Lena, the nurse of his terminally ill wife, Shyann. When Shyann Crowley learned of her husband's infidelity, she placed a curse on the unborn Victor just before she died. As a result of the curse, Victor was born horribly disfigured, and Lena died the moment she laid eyes on him. Thomas raised Victor lovingly despite his deformity, and kept him hidden from the outside world to keep other children from tormenting him. Many years later, Sampson Dunston, his best friend Bob, and their friend Trent Graves, went to the Crowley house on Halloween and tried to scare Victor out of the house with firecrackers so they could see him. Other teenagers were Sampson's brother and Clive Washington (who would later go by Reverend Zombie) whom both decided not to go. Instead, the house caught fire with Victor locked inside. The children fled as Thomas returned home. Desperate to save his son, Thomas attempted to break through the door with a hatchet, but Victor had his head pressed against the door in a panic to escape. Thomas broke through the door and hit Victor in the face, killing him.

Following the accident, Thomas became reclusive and depressed, and years later, he died of a broken heart. After Thomas's death, people began disappearing when entering Honey Island Swamp. Victor Crowley had resurrected as a vengeful spirit, trapped in the night that he died. Every night, he wanders the swamp, crying out for his father, and brutally killing anyone that he comes across. Victor Crowley since became a legend in Louisiana. Locals do not dare to enter the swamp, for those who have never returned, however some don't believe the story is true until they meet Crowley, they then realize that he actually exists. The only way to get rid of Crowley permanently is 2 things. 1. Get revenge on the 3 teenagers who picked on Crowley and got him killed, Sampson, Trent, and Bob. and 2. Crowley successfully finding his father, whether Thomas is alive or dead, shown that Victor was about to take Thomas' ashes and he melted when Marybeth put his ashes on him. He managed to succeed in both things

When Sampson and his friends set the house on fire, Thomas tried to save Victor, but accidentally killed Victor with a hatchet. Victor tried to prove the children's guilt but was rebuffed. Thomas died of a broken heart, and was cremated. In Hatchet III Marybeth uses Thomas' ashes to kill Victor once and for all.
