BEWARE THE MOON REVIEWS
This film was pretty much nothing like I was expecting, but not in a good way... "After moving to a new town, a young college student retreats to the country for a weekend of solace when she quickly finds out that she is not alone and needs to fight for her life."
I expected more than I got with this film, mainly from the good looking, professional poster and also the story behind it. Yes, the story is nothing new, but it's one of those easy to follow, entertaining stories - or so I thought.
The film opens with a pretty good sign of two girls playing with ouiji board, which is always a good idea, only for it to go tits up. It's a pretty good opening and is actually pretty well done - which is something I cannot say with the rest of the film.
This was just a bad film, the acting I think was the worst part of it, as it did just seem to get more and more wooden as it went on. The filming and editing was better, but not enough to salvage the film or make it enjoyable. The best thing about it was the storyline, as I feel it did have a calling, but it just wasn't done as well as it could have been.
The effects weren't too shabby either, with the deaths falling under that, and as I said, it had a good, creepy opening scene.
Overall, I feel Hell of a Night had a good heart, but just didn't reach what it was trying to get to. I won't be watching it again, but doesn't mean you shouldn't!
Watching horror films since like 2003, when I could stand dead bodies..
