Storyline

In a working class Connecticut town, 19-year-old Peter's monotonous life is about to end. During the day, he tends to a sick mother and a wheelchair-bound father. At night, he fends off advances from his boss at the local convenience store. The nights pass and he finds himself slipping into an uneasy relationship with an engaged co-worker. One night in the cellar, lit by a dangling bulb, something emerges to take his life. A dark man creeps beneath the light. His wiry hair hides his glossy eyes, bony face, and a pair of fangs beneath his lips... In his debut, Director Roger Ingraham breathes new life into what a vampire film can be. The innovative, richly textured and highly realistic "Moonshine" will haunt moviegoers long after they leave the theatre. Written by LModlin

A fantastic achievement in every respect of the word ...
27 January 2006 | by See all my reviews

I actually caught the second screening this film ever had at the Sundance Film Festival at a theater in Salt Lake City. Let me first point out that the movie was made on a budget no more than $10,000 American dollars. Let me put that in perspective for you. 2005's King Kong, while a great achievement on Peter Jackson's behalf, it was made with a budget exceeding $200 million dollars. Yes that's right, more than 100x the budget given to this film. The young director, Roger Ingraham, did a magnificent job and should be commended over and over again. It's the story of a boy who, like many his age, is looking for a job to support his dying mother and handicapped father. He finds his chance at a small convenience store in his small town and from there, things can never be the same. A brilliant job by all the actors involved, the lead female is Ingram's sister and he has several supporting performances by his parent's. I guess you could say it really does run "in the family". As of now, the movie has no known distribution company and that is a sham, especially with some of the crap we see being released time and time again by these big production companies. Hopefully for Ingraham's sake, the movie is picked up and released to a wider audience and it is clearly superior to most anything you'll see in theater this year. I also have to give a big thank you Mr. Ingram and his father for taking the time to talk to me and give me pointers and information on film making. Best of luck to anyone that is involved with this fantastic picture.
