A Rather Awful Movie
9 August 2015 | by Michael_ElliottSee all my reviews

Moonshine Mountain (1964)

1/2 (out of 4)

Country music superstar Doug Martin (Chuck Scott) returns to his backwoods town where he gets back into good favor with the local rednecks but soon a greedy and dirty sheriff tries to push his weight on them.

MOONSHINE MOUNTAIN is a rather horrible film and it's becoming quite clear to me that director Herschell Gordon Lewis made some really awful movies. Yes, everyone including myself loves his gore pictures but man were there some bad ones surrounding them. This film clocks in at just 83 minutes but I honestly think it was the slowest movie I have ever seen. In fact, I thought the movie was nearly over and checked the time on it and realized that I was only twenty minutes in. Yes, it's that slow.

As you'd expect the performances were quite awful as was the story, the direction, the lighting, the camera-work and pretty much everything else. What was so shockingly bad about this film is the fact that the producer and filmmakers thought someone would want to watch this. The "hicksploitation" genre wasn't a very big one but at least the majority of those films offered up either nudity or some sort of fun. MOONSHINE MOUNTAIN is just one long drawn out scene after another. There aren't any laughs, no nudity, no exploitation. There's really nothing here except for a couple dumb but fun songs.
