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
I lost all faith in this right from the start. The acting was bad, the CGI was terrible and the plot was just weird.
In the old west Tristan is married to Lucy, who is the daughter of Satan. He is having an affair with Rachel. Lucy puts a curse on them before she is killed. Rachel is transformed into a werewolf and her victims will become zombies. Those who survives her bites will turn into werewolves. The only way to kill her is a silver bullet to her heart, but her blood will bring Lucy back from the dead. Tristan is transformed into some sort of vampire.
I was ready to give up on Blood Moon Rising and had already decided to give it a bottom rating for being utter crap, but just as I was about to turn it off it suddenly got better.
It's now 1969 and Satan's great-great-great-great granddaughter, hippie girl Sadie teams up with Darell, a comic-book nerd, and an independent film crew to save the world from Lucy's return, hordes of zombies, biker werewolves and even an army of demons from Hell. Will they survive and manage to close the gates of Hell before it's to late? About 20 minutes in something happened. The story was still weird, but suddenly it was funny, settings got stylish and some of the actors was even good. It got from terrible to quite decent, and I started to like it. There is lots of action and blood. Lots of blood. In fact lots and lots of blood. I wouldn't call it a masterpiece, but with a decent budget and better CGI it might have been. I rate it 6 out of 10, which isn't bad at all considering my first bad impression.
