HATCHET II is a horror sequel, which starts where the first film ended. Survivor, Mary Beth, joins a group of hunters to return to the swamp in search of Victor Crowley, the monster who murdered her family. The film was classified '18' for strong bloody violence and gore.

The BBFC's Guidelines at '15' state 'Violence may be strong but should not dwell on the infliction of pain or injury. The strongest gory images are unlikely to be acceptable'. However, HATCHET II frequently dwells on the infliction of injuries and shows them with a lot of gory detail. For example, there is sight of intestines being pulled out, people being sliced vertically in half, and the back of a man's head being sanded down to expose his brain. These and similar sequences exceed the terms of the '15' Guidelines and require an '18' classification.

The film also contains some strong language and sexualised nudity.
