Traci Lords vs. The Man with the Laser Pointer
10 April 2007 | by (Satan's Colon) – See all my reviews

LASER MOON, a movie I came across at an online sale and purchased solely on the desire to see if Traci Lords could act, is easily among the worst movies I think I've ever seen. Sadly, Traci "Underage Porn" Lords cannot act, and somehow she's still more interesting than her co-stars. This is not a rare, unheard of gem that anyone should be running out to purchase.

I considered removing this movie from my collection but decided against it, simply because there is something very amusing about how incredibly bad this it is. It's all about a serial killer who murders women with a surgical laser, an item played by either a laser pointer or a red pen light. I am not kidding. This murderer, a lunatic in the fullest sense, only kills at night under a full moon, which is probably where the title of the movie came from. Clever, isn't it? The main character is a radio DJ, Zane Wolf (Harrison Le Duke, who had a very short career in film acting, go figure), who hosts a late-night talk radio show full of goofy dialogue and chain smokes in spite of the rather prominent "No Smoking" sign on his console. After several attempts at provocative and sexy scenes with Zane, the Laser Moon Killer finally starts calling the radio station to talk about his laser pointer murders. Barbara Fleck (Traci Lords, still as hot as ever) is then called in as the cop that needs to track down the killer. It is really just that simple. Where does the laser pointer come from? What kind of special laser pointer can be used for murder (as opposed to, say, playing with cats)? How does one turn up the laser pointer enough to burn through a human skull? These questions are left unanswered, alas.

There are some good things about this movie. It does feature some nudity, although none of it comes from Ms. Lords--her days of appearing nude for the camera were long over by the time this was filmed. Most of the drama, unfortunately, is very poorly performed; there's a scene between Zane, his ex-wife and her lawyer that just drags on. I can't honestly recommend anyone run right out and buy this, unless you come across it very, very cheap. This is the sort of movie that, to paraphrase some of the other reviewers, is viewed most appropriately during a long-distance flight or as a means to cure insomnia.
