Film Review: ‘Cold Moon’

Film Review: ‘Cold Moon’
An eccentric mix of veteran actors, Southern Gothicism and neo-noir lends “Cold Moon” a certain charm as a ghostly revenge thriller. This handsome-looking potboiler is well-crafted on various planes, even if telepic and direct-to-video helmer Griff Furst’s mostly game-upping latest feature is also occasionally at tonal odds with the screenplay’s campier “Creepshow”-type horror aspects. Nonetheless, as guilty pleasures go, this one rates a solid B.

Orphaned Jerry Larkin (Chester Rushing) is a sober-minded youth attentive to the financial plight of grandmother Evelyn (Candy Clark) and their family’s Florida blueberry farm — in contrast to high-spirited sister Margaret (Sara Catherine Bellamy). Galavanting around on her bicycle long past when she’s due home, Margaret is attacked by a mysterious, hearse-driving figure on her belated return. He throws her over a bridge, then leaps over himself to ensure she drowns. Afterward, a coroner discovers the 16-year-old was four months pregnant.

Film Review: ‘Against the Night’

Film Review: ‘Against the Night’
“Against the Night” isn’t a terribly good movie — it’s mostly a patchwork of clichés, stock characters and low-voltage shocks culled from dozens of similar small-budget thrillers — but it isn’t an entirely useless one, either. In fact, one can easily image it serving as a film school teaching tool for students eager to learn how to make the most of limited resources while producing a first dramatic feature.

No kidding: The movie is almost entirely interiors, shot in a preexisting location (Philadelphia’s long-shuttered Holmesburg Prison) that presumably required little or no dressing to be suitably atmospheric. To provide some semblance of marquee allure, there is one recognizable supporting actor — Frank Whaley, who very likely was able to complete his performance in an afternoon. The other roles are filled by young unknowns who compensate with enthusiasm for whatever they may lack in polish.

Given that writer-director-cinematographer Brian Cavallaro’s resume includes several credits in reality

‘Cold Moon’ Review

Stars: Josh Stewart, Christopher Lloyd, Robbie Kay, Candy Clark, Frank Whaley, Tommy Wiseau, Madison Wolfe, Laura Cayouette | Written and Directed by Griff Furst

In a sleepy southern town, the Larkin family suffers a terrible tragedy. Now the Larkin’s are about to endure another: Traffic lights blink an eerie warning, a ghostly visage prowls in the streets, and graves erupt from the local cemetery in an implacable march of terror . . . And beneath the murky surface of the river, a shifting, almost human shape slowly takes form to seek a terrible vengeance.

At first glance Cold Moon looks like most other by the numbers horror/thrillers, with a cast of people you will recognize straight away but take a while to place where from. However give it a minute because this movie has some really stellar performances from the core cast which – considering the concept is just bonkers enough to take
