Default Adam Green

Thoughts and opinions on Adam Green and his films?

Personally he's one of my favourite horror directors.

I've seen most of his films (except Spiral) and enjoy all of them. But my personal favourite is Hatchet 2.

I love his passion and dedication to the genre but I still think he's yet to make a truly great horror film. Ironically, my favourite film of his by far is Frozen which is more of a thriller than a horror

I've only seen the 2 Hatchet films, both of which I really enjoyed so I'm looking forward to the third one, due out soon

Just in case you don't know, Green didn't direct the third one. He's been involved in the production in a producing role but he left the directing to someone else.

Hatchet is excellent as is Frozen.

I thought Hatchet 2 very run of the mill, and i haven't seen Spiral.

Yeah I know, I was talking mainly about the content than the direction tbh

I really didn't like the first HATCHET (not seen the second film) but I loved FROZEN - thought it was excellent.

Adam Green rocks. I really enjoy his work. I'm a die-hard slasher fan who grew up watching them in the 80s so I really appreciate when someone comes out with a movie like Hatchet..also recommend The Orphan Killer(not Green but really good for people who are true slasher fans).

Ironically though I think Frozen was my favorite film he did. Loaned Spiral to a friend and never got it back. Very well done psychological film though.

Whether or not you are a fan of his work, nobody can deny the fact that Adam Green is a very good man. I mean just look at this http://ariescope.com/2013/05/10/tick...on-fundraiser/
