NEW YORK ADVENTURES: INTERVIEW WITH BLOOD NIGHT DIRECTOR FRANK SABATELLA

The DLB’s New York adventures began last Sunday when he attended the final night of the New York City Horror Film Festival. The main feature screening was Long Island filmmaker Frank Sabatella’s Blood Night: The Legend of Molly Hatchet. Inspired by ’80s slashers, Blood Night sees a bunch of partying teens hunted, it would seem, by Mary Hatchet, a local legend who butchered her parents and is said to haunt the area in search of the child that was taken from her prior to her death by cop. It’s a low-budget affair that wears its influences on its tattered sleeves and indulges, knowingly, in every possible horror movie cliche, although its self-awareness doesn’t entirely absolve it of its flaws. Nevertheless, slasher fans will be pleased by the relentless gore, plentiful female nudity and the spirited presence of genre stalwart Bill Moseley (The Devil’s Rejects, Repo! The Genetic Opera).

Prior to the screening, we got the chance to sit down with Frank Sabatella to talk about the local legend that inspired the film, working with Bill Moseley, and the influence of ’80s horror.
