Wilford Butler returns home on Christmas Eve and his house had been turned into a mental institution for the criminally insane. But the day of his return, he is set on fire and dies. The towns people believe his death was an accident, and the institution-house is later closed down. Wilford leaves the house to his grandson Jeffrey. A few years later, Jeffrey finally decides to sell this grandfather's house, but the towns people including the Mayor have mixed feelings on keeping people away from the house, especially when a serial killer escapes from another institution and finds refuge there. The killer makes frightening phone calls and kills anyone coming near the house. But what does the killer have in common with what happened to Wilford Butler years before? Written by
Main character Jeffrey Butler is riding with John Carradine, who plays Towman. Butler and Carradine have decided to go out to the Butler house to see what is going on. Instead, Towman pulls into the drive of another house, and Jeffrey Butler says, "Towman this isn't my house, it's Tess'. Tess is another of the townspeople, and it is her house, but Jeffrey would not have known that because he has never been to the town before. See more »
"Night of the Dark Full Moon" is also known as "Silent Night, Bloody Night" and it's surprisingly a pretty darn good horror film. This one I had my expectations of the film set very low so the film took me by surprise just how interesting it is. It's a low budget film but quite effectively filmed with a story that kept my interest.
This one is a bit bloody - it's a prelude to the slew of slasher films that came about in the late 1970s through the 1980s. This film is not one that is a simple hack-them-up teenage movie without a solid story. This film has a solid story that is quite good with some bloody scenes
it's more story than blood and gore.
I will have to add this film to my list of "spooky holiday films" to watch during the winter season.
