slasher nostalgia

BLOODMOON had major airplay on the USA NETWORK on Friday nights during some years. After 1997 I haven't seen this slasher but I can remember about it.

It's night, full moon, a killer with a barb wire terrorizes a girls school. Great premise for a slasher! The murders are so so as the killer has only a way to kill the ladies. Anyway this is pure slasher fun, much in the style of HOUSE ON THE SORORITY ROW. The plot tries to be somewhat complex, but fails on being interesting and turns to be dumb. You discover who the killer is after 30 minutes of the movie. Slasher fans do not care about it! Don't expect too much from this slasher, just watch it and have some fun. It gets boring at some point, but it's worth a watch.

I recommend it only for slasher fans, watch it at your own risk.

3/10 -Terrible but tries to stand out of the garbage
