Strange and moody French vampire flick.
11 January 2010 | by HumanoidOfFleshSee all my reviews

The biggest goal in my life as a horror collector is to find and watch as many obscure horror movies as I can.So when I get poor quality DVD-R copy of "Moon and Midnight" I was more than happy.I don't speak French,so most of the plot went beyond me,but here is the general gist:Helene(Sylvia Fennec)is the straight laced girl who falls in love with a strange and decidedly sick young man.On a visit to his family,she discovers his father is a sadist and his nymphomaniac sister likes to see men beaten up for excitement.Her boyfriend turns out to be the strangest of them all as he murders young men with a glove fitted with razor sharp claws.Even stranger is the fact Helen covers up for her lover's crimes and eventually marries him.The film takes place in some sort of a strange stone castle and has plenty of surreal touches including one Nosferatu-like character.I'd like to check out English subtitled print,if it exists.
