Zach Galligan Joins Hatchet 3
Gremlins star lays down the law

Zach Galligan Joins Hatchet 3

If you were watching Gremlins last Christmas, and wondering to yourself whatever happened to that nice young Billy Peltzer, you need now look no further than the continuing chronicles of Victor Crowley. Zach Galligan has just joined the cast of Hatchet 3.

Far from disappearing after the two attacks by transmogrified Mogwai in 1984 and 1990, Galligan has stayed busy in genre fare like the Waxwork and Warlock films, but Hatchet will be his highest-profile gig in a while (if you consider Hatchet high-profile; it's all relative). He'll be playing "Sherrif Fowler". 

He's not the only cult horror stalwart that'll be showing up either. Returning from earlier in the series are Kane Hodder (Jason in various Friday 13ths) and Danielle Harris (various Halloweens, Stake Land), and they're joined this time by Derek Mears (both recent Hills Have Eyes, the 2011 Friday 13th), Caroline Williams (Stretch from Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2), Diane Goldner (Feast) and Sean Whalen (Roach in The People Under The Stairs).

The first two Hatchets were directed by Adam Green. This one's by his erstwhile cameraman BJ McDonnell, although Green is still involved as a writer and general overseer.

The series, about yer usual crazed, invincible, deformed slasher terrorising a Louisiana swamp, kind of divides horror fans into those that hate it for being too knowing, and those that love it because they're into the joke. Expect nobody to change their mind for the third instalment. Shooting starts today in New Orleans.
