Horrorfest 2020 Presents: Moon of the Wolf (1972, Daniel Petrie)


Look I know this was a TV movie yet Moon of the Wolf still comes across as a mess. The main problem is not enough werewolf moments for a movie with that literal of a title. I did not hate it however since the mystery elements are a tad interesting, and I did like that the movie tries to be a serious werewolf movie. However the low budget is a clear limitation that the film does not overcome.

The actual werewolf parts were neat, though, and the last act makes a sizable effort to be scary and suspenseful. I wonder if maybe a restoration of the original negatives would help, and I think this is one of those films that would benefit from a modern remake. Stop groaning already, you know I’m right.
