Full, crescent, quarter…each is a bad moon for a werewolf.

First off, I want to tell you that I didn’t like Bad Moon (1996) that much. It had so much potential to be good, but failed. There are good parts, like the beginning with the werewolf attack, even though the beast was very stiff. My attention was caught at this scene, and the reason I continued to watch.

Bad MoonThe term “flopsy” was weird, referring to the grifter that came to Janet’s home. I’ve never read Thor by Wayne Smith, so I don’t know if this was a term that he used in the book. From reading about this book, I wish they would’ve spent more time to focus on the dog’s point of view in the movie as it would’ve been better even with the horrible werewolf costume.

I think the werewolf is what bugs me the most about this film. American Werewolf in London, The Howling, and even Silver Bullet had better werewolves than this one. The mouth was in this weird position like it had dislocated its jaw. Now, the gore effects were good, though I expected more from a werewolf movie.

One other thing that made me go hmmm was at one point Thor goes to look for Ted after the sun has come up. Ted comes around from the tree naked, covering his dangly bits with his hand. Um, I’m pretty sure that after returning to human form the last thing someone is going to think to do is covering their jewels, especially in front of a dog. Why didn’t they put a nice bush there to cover his manhood?

2 Stars

I can only give Bad Moon 2 out of 5 stars.

Bad Moon is another bland horror movie that I don't recommend. Click To Tweet
