Surprisingly not bad, though it could've been better
I wasn't sure about Voodoo Moon at first, but after seeing it while less than perfect it wasn't bad and one of SyFy's more tolerable efforts. It looks decent with the effects not too cheap and the filming stylish on the most part. The acting is also better than average, especially from Charisma Carpenter and Jeffrey Combs, and the premise is great and helped in the film by a great opening sequence and a nice ending. The music also has its haunting parts, and doesn't interfere with the tone too much. On the other hand, while not as annoying and stereotypical as I have known SyFy characters to be the characters don't have much to them, if anything especially in the case of John Amos's character they were underdeveloped. The story does begin and end promisingly and has one good jump scare and a strong atmosphere, but the pace drags too often, apart from one scare the film is not very scary and the middle is too reminiscent of overlong exposition. There are worse scripts around, but generally it doesn't flow very naturally and nothing really stands out. Overall, not a bad movie and surprisingly tolerable by SyFy standards, but still lacking for me. 6/10 Bethany Cox
