Blood Moon is a hackneyed B grade werewolf flick with a Western flavour.
The premise behind this film has in one form or another been done before.This is by no means the worst interpretation but its by no means the best either.
The acting is, by and large, of a very good standard. That said the actors are constrained by the, at times, cheesy stereotypical cowboy characterizations, replete with lots of gormless gun twirling. Even worse again, are the tame and tacky monster effects, that are more comical than scary.
Blood Moon had the makings of a half decent horror if only more care had been taken with the special effects and more common sense had been injected into the script. As it stands, this film rates a five out of ten from me.
