Hatchet at Wal-Mart for 9.96 (YMMV)

My local Wal-Mart had Hatchet with a shelf price of 9.96. I'm not sure if this is their price or a YMMV deal. I thought about picking it up but then thought that I could invest my 10 dollars elsewhere. I hope this helps somebody out there.

I'd like to know too. Also if anyone saw their price for Halloween unrated. I was going to do the BB deal which would total $32 before tax. This may be better.

Called my 2 closest Wal-Marts and was told they didn't have any. Their website has them for $24. I think I'll just wait until the price comes down.

I just got back from Wal-Mart in Anchorage, AK (not usually a store that gets all of the ymmv deals).

They had the unrated directors cut Hatchet for $9.96.

Wow, Anchorage has a Wal-Mart now? I grew up there but left when I was 18.

Went to best buy and they had it for $9.86. Completely sold out, though. I got it at Best Buy with the $5 off deal, so it ended up the same price (plus a cheap looking key chain).

just blind bought this since no blockbuster near me carries it (funny how they have tons of new direct to video crap each week but don't have this). hopefully it will be worth the $9.96 price...

I saw a bootleg of this many months ago and had a blast with it, so I wound up picking up a copy for a few dollars more than mentioned in this thread. I love the movie, it knows what it is and it keeps trying to outdo itself. Go in with the right mindset and it's a great ride.

Was the same price here in Midland, Mi. Awesome movie for a very strange, but excellent price.

amazing? really?

Here is my review... obviously you'll all take it with a huge grain of salt.

Hatchet (unrated director's cut) - 2/5

This movie plays more like a Troma production than something legitimately terrifying, which I will assume is intentional given that the cast consists of two alums from 'Office Space', Jason Voorhees, the Candyman, Freddy Krueger, Bill Murray's younger brother, and the guy that played Kenny AKA "Bud" on the Cosby show. No, none of these master thespians could save this film from the 3rd rate production that it truly is. Sure, there are some pretty cool old school (ie: no CGI) special effects of gore and guts, but not once is this movie frightening or at all particularly riveting. I did like the courage to cast a male lead that looks more like Shaggy than some Abercrombie model, but unfortunately he couldn't act his way out of a bloody paper bag, thus adding to my overall disappointment. Touted as an homage and return to the late 70's-early 80's cheesy slasher flicks, I suppose it somewhat succeeds, but my hope was it would be able to transcend to something a bit more. Sort of like what 'Shaun of the Dead' managed to accomplish for the Zombie genre. Alas, no... 'Hatchet' falls short. Despite some excellent head-twisting, the wooden acting, awful direction, cheap looking sets and a bad guy that looks more like Sloth from 'The Goonies' than an intimidating psychopath all adds up to a rather ho-hum affair.
