BEWARE THE MOON REVIEWS
I had a thing about this movie, a bad thing, before I had even watched it to be fair. My name is Megan, so in a way I was like, 'If I watch this, is it going to be bad luck, or is something else just as bad going happen!'. A wee bit silly, but that is how I felt when I saw my name in this very negative movie title.. But I picked up my little balls, grew them a bit and watched it - and I really shouldn't have even bothered... 'Two teenage girls encounter an Internet child predator.'
If you Google this film, you will see a fair few reviews on how it is insanely 'unsettling' and how it is 'a film you wouldn't want to watch again', well, I would agree with the second one, it's an awful film. A dreadful film.
It's not a nice story at all, by it's so bad it's almost comical, the acting is awful, the way the film is put together is awful, and just all over it's just bad. There is not one part of it where you'd go, "well that part wasn't that bad", nah, all of it is on that same shite level. With most things, I try to find at least some good things, like a shit sandwich, this is all a shit sandwich, I don't have anything good to say... Makes me so sad, but this was awful, literally one of the worst films I have ever sat and watched. Probably stood and watched too, saying that.
The characters are down right annoying and are so very cliche, the 'slutty' girl being best friends with the 'good' girl, both just being cliche through the whole thing and filming everything - which is also not done well. The girls film everything, everything, and on old Motorola phones, the flip up ones, ones that aren't known for good pictures.. Yet, this film is filmed in very good picture, nice and crisp and clear. And I also am not sure in a way why or how they filmed everything for the film, the beginning opens by saying that all the clips and footage are put together from films and files, yet, for one, how do you even save videos off video calls, especially when this film was made? Or am I being stupid? My main point here, is this movie sucked. Sucked.
The movie sucked, but the story is not nice, at all, like two girls go missing, there is some violence, some rape and it's not nice, at all. Like, on paper, it's a ballsy and hard hitting film, but in film, nah. It's just bad, like, I would not watch this film unless I was paid. Like, I don't want to see it again unless I have a good reason to.. Not just that Megan was missing, but this film should go missing, forever, from eyes...
I also hope this does not show the youth of today... Please, no.
Watching horror films since like 2003, when I could stand dead bodies..
