Trivia

Despite Blood Night being a tale about Long Island, shot in Long Island with a cast and crew of many Long Islanders, production was not always welcome in the area. The production team was frequently harassed, fined and eventually sued by the mayor of the town who did not want a horror movie being filmed there. See more »

Goofs

In the montage after the sanitarium murders, the first newspaper says that Mary murdered her family on August 4, 1892. The rest are August 4, 1985. See more »

For a few nights only: Mary Hatchet - Unplugged.
23 April 2010 | by (Edinburgh.) – See all my reviews

Some horror movies work their way under your skin and genuinely freak you out, some horror movies are happy to simply provide some decent scares, gratuitous nudity and ample gore. Blood Night is firmly in the latter camp, and a lot of fun it is too.

In an impressive pre-credits sequence we see Mary "Hatchet" begin her killing lifestyle in a nice reversal of Halloween's opening moments (or, at least, that's what it felt like to me). Then some other stuff happens and we move on to a brisk, impressive montage while the credits roll telling us all about how Mary has become such a "celebrity" in her hometown that there is now an annual holiday with it's own set of bizarre traditions. It's a fun, rather original, premise and sets things up nicely for the carnage you just know is coming as a group of disposable teens get ready to celebrate the 20th anniversary night in style.

Okay, so there's nobody here that's going to win any acting award anytime soon but genre fans will enjoy seeing both Bill Moseley and Danielle Harris on screen even if they're not at their best (though each get one great scene apiece; Moseley relates a ghostly tale and Harris relates a particularly nasty bullying incident).

Director Frank Sabatella keeps things moving quite nicely, throwing plenty of pretty young things on screen until the blood begins to flow, and has a great, economical style that maximises the time available for the bodycount to pile up. Things get a little bit muddled during the last half hour or so with too many interchangeable faces to keep up with/care about but that doesn't matter when the death scenes continue to entertain.

It's nothing new for the genre and not even the best of it's type (far from it, actually) but it is surprisingly impressive considering not too many people have heard of it and it IS entertaining from start to finish.

See this if you like: My Bloody Valentine, Psycho II, Sleepaway Camp.
