The Burning Moon

The Burning Moon

Directed by Olaf Ittenbach

In 1992, writer/director/special effects master Olaf Ittenbach changed the face of video horror, force-fed its ripped-out eyeballs to screaming audiences, then used a drill, machete and shotgun on its still-twitching torso: Ittenbach himself stars as a degenerate junkie who babysits his young sister with two bedtime stories of the damned. First, an escaped serial killer turns date night into a graphic family massacre. Then a country priest on a rape and murder spree leads to a disturbingly explicit descent into Hell. It became the VHS that shocked America. It has been banned in its Motherland for nearly 20 years. And it remains perhaps the most violent and depraved shot-on-video saga in history. This is THE BURNING MOON.

A degenerate babysits his young sister with two bedtime stories of the damned.

Cast: Beate Neumeyer, Bernd Muggenthaler, Ellen Fischer

Super low budget, but if you're looking for imaginative and elaborate gore with little to no substance, look no further! This film is so absurd and nasty, it's impossible for it not to be burned into your brain by the end if you can handle the dementedness and the picture quality. I got what I wanted, so even though this is hardly a "great" film, it's memorable and trashy to a wonderful degree.

It’s ok. I’ll give it an A for effort.
