A brutally underrated werewolf movie...
It's impossible to hate any movie in which the hero is a magnificent German Shepherd, but that angle is about all that Bad Moon has going for it.
"Bad Moon" isn't a great film, but it is a competent one with enough inspiration and individuality to impress. It is easy to see why it has built up an affectionate little following over the last few decades.
Watchable werewolf stuff, if your expectations aren't all that high.
"Bad Moon" might not do any part of the werewolf movie the best, but there is a lot that it does well.
Bad Moon is basically just a regurgitation of Cujo with some concepts turned around. I don't know why dogs are such popular movie material and this even has the nerve to make the dog an active hero in the story. The practical werewolf effects in this movie are genius and totally worth seeing the movie alone, but the goofy CGI added in is laughable. Also, the idea that a dog can defeat a bloodthirsty werewolf is just ridiculous and ruins any credibility. the only part of the story I really liked was Uncle Ted and his tortured soul as a werewolf trying to find a cure. The mom and son(aka Dennis the Menace) are just sort've annoying and seeimed to just waste screentime. Given a better story, this movie could've been a masterpiece considering they had a great character and effects. The opening scene in Nepal is utter genius though; you've got to respect a sex scene followed by gory dis-embodiments.
Fantastic movie with a great film setting! This is the best movie I've seen so far with Michael Pare in it.
