Movie Info

A small town girl falls for a handsome drifter who suffers from a sinister family curse in this lycanthropic love story featuring Sid Haig, Lin Shaye, and Billy Drago. Amy didn't know what she was in for when she first crossed paths with Dan, she only knew that he was all she could ever want in a man. But Dan has a secret, and the only people who know it are Bender and an ex-policeman named Thibodeaux. Thibodeaux has witnessed the horror of Dan's family curse firsthand, and he's determined that it doesn't get passed on to the next generation. Perhaps with a little help from some heavily armed locals, Thibodeaux will finally be able to break the curse under the light of the next full moon.

Audience Reviews for Dark Moon Rising (Wolf Moon)

(* 1/2): [img]http://images.rottentomatoes.com/images/user/icons/icon13.gif[/img] Long, cheesy, and boring. Not really fun at all.


Really, a ripped werewolf? The only thing more ridiculous are the nipples on the batman suit. This movie was as hilarious as it was ridiculous. I like movie about werewolves, so I was looking for to this. But, there is only stereotypical characters in a stereotypical small town with a stereotypical outsider with an even more stereotypical threat on its way. At the confrontation between the young werewolf and the old werewolf, the young werewolf said "f**k you", and the old werewolf replied "f**k you - harder." At least the film makers had the decency to make the old werewolf's fur gray (perhaps to look distinguished?) and the young werewolf's fur black (although, it was kind of hard to tell who was who at times because of the lighting and the action). I give this movie a 20% because it is something to watch when you're bored - and, let's face it, there are load more movies that you wouldn't watch even when you're bored.

Didn't realize that this movie was based on a romance series. You wouldn't expect that from the actual artwork. Sid Haig plays a pervert....ummm, so nothing really different there. The special effects were umm...very 1980s, so cheap I guess would be the word I was looking for. Seriously it's sad and makes me not want to read the series as well. This movie is seriously long...why won't it just end! Pacing makes me want to hurt myself because it just DRAGS!
