"The Producers acknowledge that all sadistic murders, perverted sexual acts, domestic violence, cruelty to animals, mega drug abuse, hot necrophilia, cannibalism, satanism, consumption of blood, racism against all races you are about to see is absolutely real. So, party hearty!" See more »
After watching and enjoying this movie, and in response to the completely unprofessional, unnecessary, slam of this film by another reviewer I decided to do some research to see what other people though of NY Times Critic's Choice director Warren F. Disbrow's Scarlet Moon. I personal enjoyed this movie very much. It did suffer from budget and maybe not the best acting but those are not the only things that make a movie. The story is good: Satanist trying to get their hands on this ancient Egyptian jewel called "Scarlet Moon" in order to rule the world, with their will being carried out by extremely entertaining, though a little over the top, vampire, drug addict, hit men. People need to pay more attention to Warren F. Disbrow. He is one of those rare filmmakers in our presences who will be remembered, for better or for worse, in the future, but WILL be remembered never the less. This is what I found: "Headed by Warren F. Disbrow in the seat of the writer, director, all around do everything guy, you just can't go wrong!" Marc Patterson, Film Critic.
"Wildly, weirdly resourceful no budget director Warren F. Disbrow helms this deranged horror comedy of apocalyptic Proportions" Turner Classic Movies.
"If Warren Disbrow is comparable to a genre David Lynch, then Scarlet Moon is his Dune. Dripping with ambition, dense with ideas and attempting the idiosyncratic, this determined effort at a new modern mythology works...Warren F Disbrow represents the reason independent film continues to thrive. Outside the mindless mainstream of demographically determined movie-making, he is a man who plays by his own arcane rules and puts his own unique stamp on even the most tired of terror tenets. And if that's not the definition of 'auteur', it's hard to imagine what is. Imagine what he could do with an actual mainstream budget. Scarlet Moon is highly recommended" Bill Gibron DVDTALK.
"He is passionate about what he does, and that's what appeals to us. I'm not saying he is Ingmar Bergman, but he's a true artist" Lloyd Kaufman, President of Troma Entertainment, Inc. quoted in NY Times.
