The reason for this is a conflict of interests that rarely compromise with each other. On one end, we have low budgeted movies that try to bring us back to the golden age of horror(circa the 1970s and 1980s) with their gritty kill-shots, fountains of blood, and enough bare breasts to make Hugh Hefner blush. On the other end we have high-gloss production houses putting out cookie-cutter horror stories, many with the dreaded PG-13 stamp.
With the release of Blood Night: The Legend of Mary Hatchet, we are given the best of both worlds; a movie made by fans(in horror afficionado/director Frank Sabatella), for fans, and with a dynamic production value to capture the guts, glory, and breasts, of the film for a stellar visual effect.
The story is as follows: A young girl named Mary Mattock(played by Patricia Raven) butchers her family for no apparent reason. We later learn that this is due to a physiological problem called Menstrual Dysphoric Disorder which makes PMS look like a walk in the park. The young woman(now played by Samantha Facchi) is sent to the King's Park Psychiatric Hospital, where she is raped by a hospital night-guard. She becomes pregnant, but loses the baby in child-birth. This brings on another intense bout of MDD in which she slaughters what seems to be all staff and patients at the hospital, and is gunned down by police.
The story brings us to the present, where high school kids celebrate that night of butchery by calling it Blood Night, and proceeding to paint the town red in a night of vandalism and excessive partying.Read more ›
This movie starts off full speed ahead with a flashback of young Mary murdering her family in their home, action and gore galore.
Flash to the mental institution some years later where Mary is being held because she cant stand trial due to reasons of insanity.
Enter a fat gross mental ward worker who is taunting Mary asking her if she wants to "in his words" Goo Goo Gaa Gaa his Loli Pop..
She is raped and a child is conceived.
The staff informs Mary that her child died during childbirth after that Mary breaks loose and kills the staff ,after the carnage she is standing out front of the institution holding the severed head of the man who raped her ,is gunned down and killed by the police.
Now flash to what they call Blood night where teenagers celebrate the night that Mary killed her family.
You have a bunch of obnoxious teens talking about their penises ,getting laid and terrorizing people with eggs,tampons dipped in red paint and other delightful gifts.The parts that are suppose to be funny actually are ..There is a lot of female flesh for the guys to drool over and that adds to the retro feel.
The middle slows down quite a bit and I got a little disinterested but it picks back up again when Graveyard Gus played by "Bill Moseley" of The Devils Rejects and House of 1000 Corpses fame shows up and takes the remaining teens to the mental institution to reunite Mary with her dead baby because he was the one who knows where the box like coffin was buried. There is a twist but I saw it coming a mile away as for the gore it's pretty old school and over the top..Danielle Harris of Halloween franchise fame has quite an interesting role in this movie as well.Read more ›
The addition of horror "stars" Bill Moseley and Danielle Harris does nothing to elevate the acting and the remaining cast is to be kind-------terrible.
BLOOD NIGHT doesn't succeed as campy fun or goose flesh horror. There's really nothing to recommend this disaster!
