Movie Monday: Dark Moon Rising

Twitter never lets me down, you know that? Since I rarely get to the theaters anymore, and even watching DVDs at home has been lacking lately, I’m not as in the know as I used to be about coming attractions. But Twitter’s been fixing that. I’ve had some interesting-looking movies following me lately, and then I can share them here for Movie Monday!

This next one came courtesy of @DMRMovie. The movie is Dark Moon Rising. It’s a werewolf one set in the deserts of Nevada. (I’m getting the feeling werewolves are hot again. Between Twilight’s New Moon, the new Wolfman that’s coming out, and now this one…yeah, I’d say werewolves are making a comeback.)

Anyway, this one looked interesting. Maybe a bit on the cheesy side. It reminds me of movie from the late Eighties called Waxwork. (Only one part of that movie dealt with werewolves though.) But something about Dark Moon Rising’s feel and Waxwork strikes me as similar. And I happen to love Waxwork for some reason. (A reason which my husband can’t fathom and I can’t explain to him because I don’t understand it myself. That movie isn’t amazing. It’s more silly than scary, but I like it. Sometimes these things can’t be explained, can they?)

At any rate, take a peek and see what you think.

  1. Oh boy! I’ve always loved werewolves as much as vampires. Just glad Frankenstein isn’t making the rounds–he’s a bit slow and dull, although zombies are too, but somehow they’re just a lot cooler thank Franky boy.

  2. Oh cool. I am a werewolf fan and this one could be fun to watch. I will look for this one if it comes on TV, perhaps Syfy or Chill cable channels.

  3. My holiday gift to blogs I follow is to leave a message telling what I love about their blog.

    Where do I begin with yours? First, I love the new layout–very crisp, very clear, very welcoming. The content is awesome. I feel like if I want to know what’s up in the ghosting world, I can just come here and — bam! There it is. I love your insights and the new twists on things that haven’t been beaten to death in the blog world. You’re witty, concise, warm, and inviting. Please keep it up!

  4. What the what? First off, Julie and Autumnforest…thanks for your comments about this movie. I’m glad I posted it now.

    And Autumnforest…you freak me out. We’re on the same wavelength again. I’m working up a Best Blogs of 2009 (working title) post I’m going to do where I mention all the blogs I like best that I’ve followed this year and why I like them. Yours and Julie’s were the first 2 to come to mind on my list!

    So what you did is more personal…and I love that about you.

    And I REALLY like the view of me and my blog through your eyes. I appreciate you taking the time to stop by like this and share such amazing comments! That is a simply FANTASTIC present to receive! And it’s one I’ll treasure forever!!!!

  5. just thought i would drop you a line re dark moon rising. the idea for this film was to reinvent the werewolf genre, tell the story in a fresh and new direction. i grew up on werewolf films and wanted to take a shot at telling the story in a way that had not been done.
    i surrounded the project with the best actors that i could and centered the story in a location that had not been done before.werewolf flicks were alwasy inner city or forest, thus the desert. what a great setting to tell a story. anyways the film has been picked up domestically by grindstone ent, and will be released thru lions gate films
    it recieved a standing ovation at the screening at cannes in may. multiple awards at the orlando horror festival, with honorable mention from john landis. and will bre released this year.
    just thought i,d get my two cents in…….thanks for your mention of my film on your very cool site…
    cheers dana mennie director, writer dark moon rising

  6. Wow Dana! THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR STOPPING BY! There is NOTHING that beats a comment with insider info like the writer/director of a movie can give! How very exciting! Congrats on all the awards/recognition. I am super psyched to learn this movie will be released! (YEAH for Lions Gate! They make it possible for so many good movies to be seen!)

    I do believe I will use this as a refresher movie Monday post this coming Monday…=)
