Storyline

The rebellious teenager, Summer Matthews, finds out her mother's secret - her unknown father is alive - and she decides to seek him out. She hitchhikes to a small village called Massey with an old picture of her father, expecting that someone might identify him. When she arrives in the community, she shoplifts from a store but the local sheriff sees her and chases her. However Tom Hoxey helps her to flee and they go out on date that night. Tom takes her home where he lives with his mother, Gaia, and they have one night stand. The next morning, just as Summer is ready to go, she finds out that Tom is not quite the perfect gentleman.

Each to their own, but how did anyone of you enjoy this?
24 January 2010 | by gareth242000See all my reviews

My girlfriend wanted to buy me a horror DVD. It was between the Orphan and Summer's moon...unfortunately she decided on Summer's moon, and boy didn't we both regret it that evening! It really is a waste of time. Sure the film was produced in a short amount of time, but so have some classic movies and without huge budgets also. I keep reading people's reviews that say how good the acting was and i had to check i was actually reviewing the same movie. Okay, maybe it wasn't the worst i have ever seen and to be fair Marlon Brando would have been hard pushed to produce any moment of clarity and substance with the script these poor actors and actresses were given! By far one of the poorest, most boring and stupid dialogues produced. The story was regurgitated trash, but not quality trash that has the honesty to realise its a bit crap and so consequently and refreshingly has a little laugh at the films expense too, but just drab nonsense with a typical big busted girl thrown in with half a recognizable name to try and help lift the films credentials and the size of the audience who may like it. Even by looking at the DVD cover art you can tell this is a bad movie. It kind of reminded me of the sort of film someone who really loved Buffy may enjoy, and there is nothing wrong with that but honestly if you like your horror/thrillers films with any element of grittyness, realism, with scary moments, honest fun, moving, violent, gory, blackly funny, unpredictable, with any original thought or seemingly any love for film making such as good photography, dialogue blah, blah, blah then this isn't going to ring your bells! Be scared...be very very scared, at how bored you may become! The movie should give away a free gift if you stay awake long enough to make it to the ending!
