Seventh Moon Of A Seventh Moon..., 8 November 2011
Author: loogenhausen from United States

Eduardo Sanchez is emerging as the more talented of the Blair Witch directing duo. The other, Daniel Myrick, helmed the disappointments The Believers and Solstice but rebounded with the interesting The Objective. After the enjoyable but slightly uneven Altered, Sanchez follows up with the creepy but flawed Seventh Moon. Really the only thing that keeps this from being a four star flick is the overabundance of unnecessary shaky cam tactics. In the Blair Witch it was tolerable, but here it makes no sense. We can clearly see the creatures attacking our main characters several times during the movie, so there's no need to employ all the shaky cam shenanigans to try to disorient the viewer. Besides that, everything else is quite effective. The remote locale is pretty spooky and you really do feel like you could be hopelessly lost in a place like that. Sanchez is great at this motif and it was present in Blair Witch and somewhat in Altered. Amy Smart screaming at the top of her lungs does get old after a little bit, but it doesn't distract too much from a fun but forgettable little foray into indie horror.
