Halloween Challenge #20

Blood Moon Rising is, I gather, written by someone who really loved The Evil Dead. It is not a direct rip-off, but has a lot of similar elements.

Problems? Well, the best looking chick in the movie is the first one killed, and while nudity is not essential to horror, it is essential to this kind of horror and you don't see any goodies until 25 minutes in. It is rather hard to tell when this is supposed to be taking place. There are so many anachronisms that you can't really tell what is truly anachronistic. They try really hard to make it look like a Tarantino/Rodriguez film, with all the bad film and melt effects.

Verdict: This is the kind of movie I want to love, but it was a bit too Troma for my taste.

Probably... It had its moments.
