Dark Side of the Moon [VHS]

Customer Reviews

The ending should not come as a surprise to any true SCI-FI/HORROR fan.
Amanda Felix
Buoyed by a good cast, an unusual and inventive script, and some tense and chilling atmospherics, THE DARK SIDE OF THE MOON rises above typical B movie status.
Michael Butts
Oh, certainly, there are similarities with Alien and other movies, but this film establishes a solid identity all its own.

Dark Side Of The Moon is an enjoyable Sci-fi thriller. It starts like haunted spacecraft story in 2022 when the malfunctioned space station rendezvous with Spacecraft Discovery the crew later find out the fact that it had vanished in Bermuda Triangle in 1992. The spacecraft now thirty years old is eerily intact but there seems to be no living souls around. After the crew encounter the dead body of one of the missing Discovery crew, the story turns like sort of Alien series. Something evil embodies to human body through human contact with the perfect triangle scar mark on the victim's abdomen (and it begets another victim like vampire stories). Suspension heats up when the crew started to suspect each other. Although trying to connect Bermuda triangle mystery with that of dark side of the moon is not so convincing, it will please the fans of Sci-fi movies.

I love this movie (one of the BEST sci-fi/horror movies that no one has heard of) and had it on VHS before getting rid of all my VHS tapes and my VCR in favor of DVDs.

If you still have a VCR and love sci-fi/horror movies ... this is a GREAT one. If someone makes a half-way good DVD edition of this film I will buy it in a heartbeat.

Wow, I saw this movie over 15 years ago and I loved it. It instantly became one of my all time favorites. Unfurtunately I lost it in a move. Then was very happy to find it on Amazon...It has never gone to DVD, which is a bummer but if you have a tape player, this one is well worth the time to sit and enjoy

(Spoiler Alert!)

Imagine going to the moon and finding the graveyard of every ship that ever disappeared in the Bermuda Triangle!And where else? Duh the title tells it all. Cheesy but lots of movies have thier title tell the storyline. And this one works in very well. This one has it all...SCI-FI, HORROR and MYSTERY. It does have religious conatations;believers and non-believers. The ending should not come as a surprise to any true SCI-FI/HORROR fan. Never the less it is well worth the time.

I don't know why The Dark Side of the Moon is still sitting out there without a DVD release when so many putrid films have already crossed over the digital divide. This undeservedly obscure science fiction B-movie from 1990 packs quite a punch and comes with a plotline that defies the conventions of the drama. Oh, certainly, there are similarities with Alien and other movies, but this film establishes a solid identity all its own. And while the film may not excel in any specific area, the sum of all its parts yields an interesting and quite enjoyable cinematic experience.

I love how the film begins by pointing out the fact that flying up in space to maintenance nuclear-armed satellites is considered to be dangerous work. Gee, d'ya think? The crew of the space refab ship Spacecore One knows this already, but this time around they never even make it to the satellite's location. On the way there, their ship suddenly loses all power. The ship's computer (who happens to be a reasonably hot, long-legged blonde) says all systems are functioning normally despite pretty convincing evidence to the contrary. Unable to signal for help, it looks like the only real question is whether their air supply will run out before the ship crashes into the dark side of the moon. Then, lo and behold, a ship appears in the distance - and not just any ship, mind you. It's the space shuttle Discovery. Strangely, though, the ship doesn't respond to communications requests, even after docking successfully with the Spacecore, so crew leaders Flynn (Robert Sampson) and Giles (Will Bledsoe) head across and find what amounts to a ghost ship that has somehow taken on significant water damage. They also find a dead crew member.

I know, because I prayed for this movie to end quickly!

Spoiler ALERT! But you - will - thank me, crew mates!

The central plot to this movie is the notion that Ol Yellow Eyes, satan, lurks on the far side of the moon and he's been transporting all those missing ships and aircraft directly from the Bermuda Triangle on Earth to a place on the far side of the moon to build up his strength (how all that junk gives satan added strength is never hinted at). He is building up his strength to "take back what is mine", presumably heaven.

The crew of a maintenance space ship, in the year 2022, is about to dock with a military satellite that needs refueling in orbit over the dark side of the moon. The movie ignores the fact that the *far* side of the moon is not always dark, but anyway.... as they are about to dock with the satellite, they notice a strange craft approaching them from the moon's surface. It is a space shuttle that crashed into the Bermuda Triangle 30 years previously! Now, how the heck did that get there? And "guess who" is on board!

At times, satan appears to be omnipotent - controlling power, air locks, electronics and communications from a distance to thwart the efforts of the humans to escape - and at other times he appears to forget to use his powers, thus allowing the humans to delay the ending of the movie, all for the purpose of setting up the audience so someone dies gruesomely every 10 minutes. and then it gets bad from there on.. the movie borrows freely from other science fictions, but it has very low production values, and often the plot development does not make sense. Oh, and there is a boob shot.

I suppose people who have not seen many movies will find this one novel.
