Last weekend, the Knockturnal sat down with the cast of Black as Night to discuss their experience on the upcoming installment in the Welcome to the Blumhouse series.
Black as Night is a film that has a lot to say, coming from a cast and director that all have a lot to say too. Director Maritte Lee Go put together a vampire movie about gentrification with a cast that really cares about the cause they’re fighting for.
A teenage girl (Asjha Cooper) with self-esteem issues finds confidence in the most unlikely way, by spending her summer battling vampires that prey on New Orleans’ disenfranchised with the help of her best friend (Fabrizio Guido), the boy she’s always pined for (Mason Beauchamp), and a peculiar rich girl.
Taking from films like 30 Days of Night and Kill Bill, Maritte Lee Go puts out a film that’s both fun and socially relevant, while at the same time being technically cohesive, making it a necessary watch in the series.
We sat down with Asjha Cooper and Maritte Lee Go, as well as the supporting cast members to discuss their experience on set as well as how they were able to portray such tight friendships between each of them during shooting.
Black as Night is available on Amazon Prime Video.
