The Gratuitous B-Movie Column Issue #228: Blood Night: The Legend of Mary Hatchet (2009)


The 5th Annual The Gratuitous B-Movie Column October Slasher Movie Celebration: Week 2

Hello, everyone, and welcome once again to the internets review column that hasn't been offered its own TLC reality show (well, not yet anyway), The Gratuitous B-Movie Column, and I am your host Bryan Kristopowitz. In this issue, issue number two hundred and twenty-eight, The 5th Annual The Gratuitous B-Movie Column October Slasher Movie Celebration enters its second week with a look at the low budget slasher flick from 2009, Blood Night: The Legend of Mary Hatchet, directed and co-written by Frank Sabatella.

Blood Night: The Legend of Mary Hatchet (2009)



Blood Night: The Legend of Mary Hatchet is one of the better recent low budget slasher flicks. It features plenty of nasty gore and female nudity, and it manages to mix the usual stalk and slash elements of the slasher genre with a supernatural ghost story/urban legend that doesn't seem as ridiculous as it could have been. The movie's only problem, and I know this is weird to say when talking about a slasher movie, is that it spends way too much time "getting to know" the slasher killer's eventual victims. I'll explain as I go on.

The flick stars Nate Dushku as Alex, a hip and cool Long Island teen looking forward to "Blood Night," a pseudo celebration of Mary Hatchet, a young woman who killed her family, killed a bunch of people in a mental institution, and was then shot dead by the police. No one really knows why young Mary became a homicidal killer (well, some people have ideas but no one knows for sure), but the people in and around Mary's Long Island hometown know that if they see a naked woman walking the streets in the middle of the night, keep driving. Don't get involved. Leave the naked woman be. It's Mary Hatchet and she's back for some reason. Now, Alex and his friends, being hip and cool teens, don't take much stock in the old urban legend. Blood Night, the night Mary killed and was killed, is a night to mess around. It's meant to be a night of pranks, of mischief, and hanging around the cemetery Mary Hatchet is buried in because... well, I'm not exactly sure about that. Perhaps it's just something you have to do when it's Blood Night?

So Alex and his friends engage in their fucking around. They throw eggs at people, touch female asses (the guys mostly do this. I don't think any of Alex's female friends, like Nicole, as played by Alissa Dean, put paint handprints on the ass cheek of cute guys), and toilet paper things. Then, at night, they converge on the cemetery to drink and mess around. Someone brings a Ouija board to try to talk to Mary. In real life, of course, Ouija boards are total bullshit, but in the movie world using them never works out. Alex and his friends play with the board and do the usual "I'm not moving it!" thing, The atmosphere in the cemetery gets eerie for a few seconds, and then Gus the graveyard guy (the great Bill Moseley) shows up to scare the teens and tell them just how stupid they are. Using a witchboard in the cemetery, talking to Mary goddamn Hatchet? What the hell is wrong with them?

So then some stuff happens, Gus tells the teens a story about Mary Hatchet and what she really wants, and everyone gets weirded out again. There's a flashback to an incident where Mary's naked spirit kills a family on a road in the middle of the night, and we find out that Mary just wants her daughter back. See, Mary was raped by a guard at the mental hospital and was impregnated (she must not have had the ability to "shut that whole thing down" as Todd Akin would say) and the baby died during birth. Again, everyone gets weirded out by the story, but since ghosts and spirits and all that are bullshit, the teens continue on with their usual Blood Night activities. They adjourn to Alex's house (I think it's Alex's house) to have sex, drink, and watch old pornos and Attack of the Killer Tomatoes. You know, the usual teen stuff.

As the party goes on, more people show up, including Alissa (the great Danielle Harris), who comes off as kind of strange at first but is really just another hip and cool teen out looking for a good time. And that's what the teens do, have a good time. They dance, drink, watch pornos, and some of them get to have sex (there's one guy, I can't remember his name, who gets to have sex with Nicole, as played by the uber hot Maryam Basir. I don't think I've ever wanted to be a dude's hands more in my life). Little do they all know that what they did back in the cemetery will change their lives forever. I don't think I have to tell you what happens next.

One of the biggest complaints about slasher movies is that they don't spend any time allowing the audience to "get to know" the characters that are eventually going to be victims of the killer. I've never bought into that idea as not every movie, and I mean movie in general here, not just the slasher movie genre, works in the same way. Sometimes you may have to spend half of the movie's time setting up the characters so the audience can "get to know them," and sometimes all a movie needs is a few minutes to establish itself. It just all depends. Blood Night, based on the way the story unfolds in the middle, tries hard to follow the "getting to know them" line. It seems like we spend over an hour with these horny teens, watching them laugh and argue and drink and whatnot. But that's all we do. We just see them do these things. We really don't learn anything about any of them. We get to see plenty of female nudity, always cool, but there aren't any scenes where someone has an extended discussion about family, college, the future in general, or even what they like to watch on TV. We get a little of that but not much. Aside from the sex and nudity it's all just a mash of stuff happening. As a result, they're not "deeper" slasher movie characters. They're like slasher movie characters from other slasher movies. We've just spent a little more time with them, but it doesn't have the expected effect. It does help build some suspense, though. It does do that. When the heck is the killer going to strike? When?

The last third of the movie is chock full of great slasher movie death scenes. The blood and gore flies, and we get to see some nifty practical effects melded with CGI enhancements. The pace also picks up quite a bit, which is always a good thing after spending so much time "getting to know" the characters. I think you'll also dig the big twist involving Mary Hatchet's motivation. It makes complete sense and you don't see it coming. And when you do find out what's really going on, you may get an "unsettled" feeling. That's what happened to me.

The performances are decent throughout. I wish I could remember everyone's name, though (we spend all that time getting to know the characters and their names are a blur). Nate Dushku does a good job as Alex the sort of lead teen. He's a believable alpha teen, but he isn't a gigantic douchebag like he could have been. Alissa Dean is good as Nicole. Maryam Basir is just fun to look at as Jen. Those are the ones I remember. There are two younger teens, sort of freshmen types, who try to get into the party and engage in the sort of teen sex comedy stuff you'd see in a, well, teen sex comedy.

Bill Moseley does his usual excellent job as Gus the graveyard guy (or Graveyard Gus, as it shows on imdb.com). He actually gets to play a good guy in this one, as opposed to the villain (I was waiting for him to bury someone alive, but it didn't happen. Perhaps that'll be the basis of a sequel: Blood Night 2: The Legend of Graveyard Gus. I'd make an effort to see it). And Danielle Harris is awesome as Alissa, the cute girl with the messed up funny story. I think you'll like what she gets to do at the end. It's way different than what she gets to do at the end of Hatchet II. Way different.

And then there's Samantha Siong as Mary Hatchet. She's scary, yes, and a trooper. Most of her screen time is spent completely naked and covered in blood. You've got to have serious, for the lack of a better word, balls, to do that. Great stuff.

The flick's music is also top notch. There's a great mix of newer hard rock and heavy metal, and there's a cool hip hop song that appears in the end credits. This movie deserves its own soundtrack album. The music really is that good.

Blood Night: The Legend of Mary Hatchet is a damn good low budget slasher movie. It's got the blood, the gore, the nudity, and, in general, the attitude, to make it a modern classic. I just wish it spent a little more killing its characters. I don't want to seem like I'm complaining about the nudity and the sex and the cute girls dancing around, but... it's not that big of a deal. Even with its "flaws," Blood Night is still pretty dang awesome.

See Blood Night: The Legend of Mary Hatchet. See it, see it, see it.

Things to Watch Out For This Week: Part 1






- Prometheus: This sci-fi epic from Sir Ridley Scott wasn't the big hit that everyone thought it would be. It apparently made enough money to justify a sequel, but I'm sure everyone involved thought, based on the buzz it generated before its release, that the movie would have been a huge, gigantic hit. It'll find a wider audience on home video. It has to. There's just no way around it.
















- Rock of Ages: This movie was not on my "must see summer movie list" but I'm glad I went and saw it. It was way better than it had any right to be. I'm still not convinced that Tom Cruise is actually singing in his singing scenes. And be on the look out for a giant Iron Maiden album cover poster in one scene. Eddie still rules.


















- Little Shop of Horrors: Director's Cut: I'm not sure what "Director's Cut" means in this instance, but according to the movie's amazon.com page, the alternate ending that appeared on the last DVD does not appear again here, so I guess that stuff isn't part of the "director's cut." So, again, what the heck does that mean? What does director Frank Oz have in store for us?

























- The Raven: I really thought that this movie would have been a bigger hit, but it tanked at the box office. Maybe everyone was saving their money for The Avengers? I wouldn't be surprised if this movie, much like director James McTeigue's other movie V For Vendetta and Ninja Assassin it'll find its audience later on.
















- Werewolf: The Beast Among Us: This low budget genre flick from Universal Pictures (yes, Universal Pictures) looks like it's a blast. Of course, Van Helsing looked like a blast and that movie was, well, terrible. I'm hoping that this movie turns out to be just as cool as its trailer and the world gets a nifty, well made series of direct-to-video monster movies. It's something the world desperately needs.

The Big Question: Is it time to retire the Maroon 5 song "Moves Like Jagger" from the TV commercial world?


I see a commercial featuring the hit Maroon 5 song "Moves Like Jagger" at least fifteen times every day. At first I could deal with it. I'm not a Maroon 5 fan, but the song was kind of catchy and it didn't come off as all that annoying. And since it was such a big song, it made sense for various advertisers to latch on to the song and use it to help sell stuff. But now, now it's out of hand. "Moves Like Jagger" is now a part of every third commercial aired (that's not a real statistic, obviously, but that's what it seems like). And I'm sure it'll only get worse when Magic Mike gets released on DVD. The song was part of the theatrical release campaign, so why would it not be a part of its DVD release campaign?

Am I wrong here? Do I just not understand the full appeal of the song? Am I nuts to suggest that the song should be retired because, well, it's just so damn good and cool and whatnot? And if advertisers can't use "Moves Like Jagger" to sell stuff, what song should advertisers be allowed to use? Some other annoying pop song? Does Justin Beiber have a ready made advertising song? Or how about Jennifer Hudson (well, something besides that insufferable song of hers that's used for Weight Watchers)? Or, good God, Beyonce?

So what do you guys think? Should "Moves Like Jagger" be retired, or should advertisers continue to use it ad nausea? Am I just not cool enough to understand the song's universal appeal?







No! No! Nooooooo! Not again! I'm not trying to sell anything! I don't have a new car or toothpaste brand to sell! Nooooooo!!!!

The Gratuitous B-Movie Column B-Movie Theme of the Week



Enjoy.





And this theme is pretty cool, too:








***

And now, the weekly Fearnet update


Fearnet, the only free all horror/thriller On Demand TV network features uncut, uncensored horror flicks from the past and present 24 hours a day, seven days a week, pretty much any time you freaking want them (as long as you still have power, that is). The channel also has behind-the-scenes stuff, trailers, and other cool hooey for you to check out. Check your local cable listings for availability (According to the Fearnetwebsite more and more Time Warner and Cox Cable areas are getting the channel. Be sure to go here to see if Fearnet is coming to your area). At the moment, Hatchet, Laid to Rest, and two John Carpenter classics, Vampires and Ghosts of Mars are on Fearnet OnDemand. How awesome is that?

Fearnet also exists as a regular old TV channel. This Fearnet airs horror movies roughly twenty one hours a day (there is a block of infomercials in the morning, usually from 6-9am est). The movies shown do have "commercial breaks" in them, similar to the breaks that currently appear on IFC, but the movies are uncut (blood and boobs and cursing are all intact).

Fearnet's website, fearnet.com, offers free movies, interviews, news, and other behind-the-scenes horror movie nerd stuff, too. Killer Pad, directed by the Robert Englund, was on the site last week. Is it still there? Check and see).





The website also features Post Mortem with Mick Garris, a nifty interview show where big, fat Stephen King's favorite director talks with genre legends like John Carpenter, Wes Craven, Roger Corman, and others. It's definitely worth your time.

If you're a Facebook nerd (and, really, today, who isn't?) you can check out the Fearnet fans Facebook page, which can be seen here. There are plenty of people out there interested in Fearnet. Join them. And, as always, thanks to both Mark Lindsey and Mathew Hirsch for info regarding the Fearnet fan movement.

Things to Watch Out For This Week: Part 2









- The Courier: This is some sort of low budget action flick that managed to get Jeffrey Dean Morgan to star in it and Mickey Rourke to appear in it. The trailer is pretty bad ass. Did this movie get some sort of international theatrical release? Was it released in theatres in Germany? Anyone out there know?















- The Barrens: This movie, also apparently known as The Jersey Devil, comes to us from director Darren Lynn Bousman and the fine folks at Anchor Bay Entertainment, so you know there's a good chance that it will, at least, be watchable. And Stephen Moyer is in it, so there's that, too.

















- A Cadaver Christmas: Holy hooey this looks pretty messed up. But then it would have to be, wouldn't it? I mean, how often does someone make a Christmas zombie movie?














- Basket Case 3: The Progeny: It's disappointing that we're not getting an extras filled special edition of this low budget messed up monster movie classic from the brilliant mind of Frank Henenlotter, but then again it's damn cool that we're getting it on DVD at all. If you haven't seen any of the Basket Case movies, good God track them down as soon as you can. They're all worth your time.












- Bloody Bible Camp: The great Reggie Bannister, Tim Sullivan, and Ron Jeremy apparently appear in this mega low budget horror flick, so based solely on that it's got to be worth a least a rental. It also looks incredibly messed up, so that's reason enough to make an effort to see it. And be on the lookout for the "not safe for work" trailer that's floating around. It's actually more insane than the one below.

The Gratuitous B-Movie Column Douchebag of the Week






This week, The Gratuitous B-Movie Column Douchebag of the Week goes to President Barack Obama for his disastrous debate performance last Wednesday. Why didn't he fight back more against Romney's bullshit? Why didn't he hammer his opponent every single time he lied? Why the fuck didn't he at least go after Romney for the "47%" thing? Because he wanted to look "more Presidential?" Because he didn't want to look like he was "bullying" the Republican? Was he just off his game because of the high altitude in Denver? Whatever it was, it was a bad strategy and will hopefully be abandoned before the next debate. The President can't have another bad performance.

Come on, Mr. President. It's TV. The facts only matter so much. If you don't look like you're engaged and ready to kick some ass no one is going to pay attention. No one is going to believe you. You're going to come off as "weak" and "lame." You, and we, can't have that. The stakes are just too high.








Up next is the former governor of Massachusetts and the 2012 Republican presidential nominee Willard "Mitt" Romney, for lying his ass off during last Wednesday's Presidential debate. And by "lying his ass off" I mean just about everything that came out of his mouth was either a lie or just total bullshit. You can read about five of his biggest lies here. I'm sure it will only get worse as the campaign continues. Will he try to lie even more in the second debate? Will he be able to top what he's already done?

Please, Mr. President, go after this guy. Do not allow him to gain any more ground. It would be a disaster for the world.







And finally there's the ultra right wing media machine, for once again claiming that it has "proof" that President Obama "hates white people" and is some sort of closet racist and uber radical. The right's proof? A speech the President made in New Orleans when he was running for the presidency back in 2007, a speech that was covered by the major news media. Apparently then Senator Obama was using "hurtful" and "racist" language in describing the G.W. Bush response to Hurricane Katrina and, the real kicker here, he praised Reverend Jeremiah Wright. So now we will no doubt be hearing more about Reverend Wright, Bill Ayers, and that communist that's supposedly Obama's real father (I don't remember the guy's name). The New Black Panthers will also probably make a special guest appearance, too.

When is this bullshit going to end? When will the right accept that the President is a black guy and just get on with its life?

Disgraceful. Just goddamn disgraceful.

Indycar and NASCAR thoughts



The IZOD Indycar Series released its 2013 schedule last Sunday night on the Speed Channel show Wind Tunnel with Dave Despain. 19 races are on the schedule, with Pocono and a street race in Houston the only two new venues. The series also announced three "double header" weekends for the Belle Isle, Toronto, and Houston street courses, with a full points paying race on Saturday and Sunday. Pocono's addition will also bring back the old "Triple Crown" challenge, a $1 million bonus if a driver can win Indy, Pocono, and the season finale at California (a driver can get $250,000 if he or she can win two of the three). That addition, to me, is far more exciting than the "double header" street races. The only good thing about those events is, if they're a success, maybe the Iowa oval will get a double header weekend. That would be damn cool.

Texas is coming back with a prime time race on ABC. It'll be interesting to see if Texas and the series find a way to make that race a bigger financial deal. Will a big ass title sponsor throw its hat in the ring and offer up some big money? Will the race be a ratings draw? A Saturday night in the middle of the summer? It could work.

Getting back to the doubleheaders, apparently the series wants to have standing starts during the first race and a rolling start for the second. I hate standing starts, but if the series wants to do it, why not just do it on all of the road and street races and just stop the nonsense? Why go through all of this "testing" crap? The car owners, at least at the moment, haven't freaked out about these doubleheader weekends, but I wouldn't be surprised if they start complaining about them towards the end of this year. Where are we going to get the money to race twice in the same weekend? What are you going to give us in order to do this?

The biggest issue with the schedule is September. There's only one race, on September 1st on the streets of Baltimore. Then the series goes dark until October 5th and 6th when it goes to Houston. Series officials claim they couldn't find a promoter willing to "go up against the NFL" during September, which just sounds like bullshit to me. How is the series going to build actual momentum for the finale when it has to disappear for a month? Why not race at Kansas or a road course somewhere in the Midwest? It just makes no sense to me. None.

In general, I like the 2013 schedule. There's still too much street racing, but with the addition of Pocono and the return of the Triple Crown we could see more ovals added in future schedules. That's what the series really needs. And more actual road course racing wouldn't be terrible, At least road courses are purpose built race tracks. I bet Montreal, which recently announced that NASCAR's Nationwide Series would not be coming back in 2013, will become a part of the Indycar schedule in 2014 or maybe even 2013. Indycar wants to race in Canada. What better place to do it than in Montreal?

Check out Indycar.com for the full schedule.

I didn't get a chance to see the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Chase race at Talladega. In fact, I'm writing this about two hours before the start of the race. I probably got to see about a half hour of it before having to go do something else (nothing fun). Was it the wild card race it was expected to be for the Chase drivers? Did it "reset" the standings in such a way that it's not a wide open affair, or did Brad Keselowski, Jimmie Johnson, and Denny Hamlin continue their three man assault on the other nine?

Charlotte is next on the schedule for both the Sprint Cup Series and the Nationwide Series. Nationwide races on Friday night and the Sprint Cup Series races on Saturday night, the only Saturday night race in the Chase. Saturday's race will be on ABC.

Things to Watch Out For This Week: Part 3

- Holliston: The Complete First Season: This nifty comedy horror series that airs on Fearnet is definitely worth checking out. I didn't see every episode, but the ones I did see were great. Show creators and stars Adam Green and Joe Lynch are freaking geniuses. Season 2 is expected to air next June.





- Piranha Man vs. Werewolf Man: Howl of the Piranha: This looks like yet another mega low budget horror flick from the fine folks at Chemical Burn Entertainment. It also looks freaking insane, which is a good enough reason to give this flick at least a rental.





- Celluloid Bloodbath: This is one of those trailer compilation deals that are only worth it if you dig trailers. And goofiness. Goofiness always helps when it comes to trailer compilations. I mean, look at that freaking puppet. It's hysterical.






- Absolute Fear: A low budget thriller that "explores fear" or something. The cast looks solid, and the trailer is about as weird as weird can get. Hopefully it's as good as it seems.
