Storyline

In this Grindhouse throwback, it's up to a hippie chick, Sadie Hawkins, and a comic book-reading soda Jerk, Darrel Lee, to save the world, but not without a little help from a group of indie film rejects shooting a zombie film in an old west ghost town. Set in 1969, an ancient curse has spilled over into the world of the living, with werewolves, vampires, zombies, and bucket-loads of blood. Written by Anonymous

Trivia

The production went through 15 gallons of SFX Blood. They did all of the blood effects themselves. "More Blood!"yelled director Brian Skiba every day all day. In fact: the scene where Lucy is cursing Tristan and Rachel in the barn, the whole crew ended up covered in blood. See more »

It could have been so much more...
20 May 2014 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

While "Blood Moon Rising" is not amongst the worst of movies that I have endured, it is not amongst the best either. The movie is entertaining for what it is; a spoofy comedy horror that is far from being serious on all account.

However, what made the movie hard to get through was the attempt to try to achieve too many things at once and not really focusing on any of the attempts along the way. As such, the movie came off as half-hearted and failed to captivate. I, personally, started to drift away after half way through the movie, and had to give up, not making it to the end.

The storyline was easy enough to follow, although it just didn't always make much sense. But there were too many sub-plots throughout the movie, which didn't really come full circle.

"Blood Moon Rising" has a variety of creatures, such as vampires, werewolves, zombies, hellspawn and such thrown into the movie, which does work out nicely, especially given the comedy aspect to the movie. And I will say that the effects and make-up were actually quite alright for a movie of this type and caliber.

Acting-wise, well, don't get your hopes up for academy award winning performances. You get what you pay for here. That being said, I will say that people did good enough jobs with their given roles and characters, and the actors and actresses did seem to enjoy participating in the movie. And you get to see a zombified Ron Jeremy - and just about then, you will have seen everything there is to see.

There are far better comedy horror movies out there, such as "Tucker & Dale vs. Evil", to name but a single movie. And as "Blood Moon Rising" failed to bring anything new or exciting to the genre, and because of the messy outcome of the movie, I am rating "Blood Moon Rising" 3 out of 10 stars.
