Audience Reviews for Track of the Moon Beast
Fragment of meteorite gets lodged in young man's head, causing him to turn into a monstrous lizard-man when the moon rises.
Track of the Moon Beast is a fine example of drive-in B movie schlock! The movie consists of a thin story line, hokey dialog, less than impressive cast, and an all around look of 'we filmed this scene in my back yard'. It's a wonder the movie managed to hide from the people at Mystery Science Theater 3000 until near the end of its 11 year run.
Yet despite all its campy trappings, I can't really say that I dislike this movie! Being a lover of B cinema it's kinda fun in a non-serious kind of way. I do give the film kudos for its surprisingly decent horror makeup, it's not surprising that this was early work from Rick Baker. The moon beast should have gotten more screen time though. Star Chase Cordell makes for an ok hero/victim and Gregorio Sala is memorable as a long-winded and hilariously pompous native American expert named Johnny Longbow ( yes you read that right). Alas the rest of the cast is pretty weak, especially the wooden Donna Leigh Drake who doesn't have a believable line in the whole film! Still the tongue-in-cheek qualities keep it entertaining.
So, for those who enjoy their horror on the very cheesy B movie side, you just might like this amusing monster flick.
