Goofs

At the end of the beginning credits/montage a paper says "Seniors celebrate 20 years of Blood Night" & a picture below it says 'Blood Night '08'. Mary went on a rampage & killed everyone in the Psychiatric Center in 1989. So technically the paper is celebrating 19 years of Blood Night. See more »

spaghetti-zed gore
13 September 2012 | by RogerB-P3RV3See all my reviews

parricidal Mary Mattock (Samantha Facchi) is constrained at sanatorium for much of her growing years – catatonic until one traumatic experience makes her go loony again, slaughtering the hospital staff and killed in process by police.

After 20-years, the psychotic Mary 'Hatchet' has turn into an urban legend. High-school seniors commemorate Mary's death as blood night - partying and reveling all over the town.

The night celebration will soon transforms into unbridled terror for one group of friends.

Abundant of nudity & sexy shots smooth over the dull parts before the killings starts. Nifty gore effects considering the modest budget.

Debuting writer-director Frank Sabatella has an eye for bloodletting (one victim's innards is 'spaghetti-zed') but lacks experience in other departments.
