Editorial Reviews

According to an ancient Chinese myth on the full moon of the seventh lunar month the gates of hell open and the dead are freed to roam among the living. While honeymooning in China, a young couple takes part in a sacred event that honors these spirits. As night falls, their tour guide abandons them in a desolate field. Now what they thought was a joke is becoming far too real as they fight to survive the night of the SEVENTH MOON.

2.0 out of 5 stars Potentially a GREAT film falls flat October 9, 2009
Format:DVD
Ghosthouse released eight films the prior year (similar to the horrorfest releases) and a handful of them were very good or simply wierd and therefore good as a result. I purchased and chose them based off reviews from various horror sights. This year, ghosthouse again has released a few flicks (four actually) and this was rated the second best out of the group. With its star of Amy Smart, cool box cover, and one of the two directors/writers of the Blair Witch film (Ed Sanchez), I picked it up on sale first week of release. Sanchez did a pretty decent film called Altered a few years back so I hoped this one would be as good.

The first half of the film we find out our couple are on their honeymoon in China. The husband's family was/is of Chinese ancestry and he has various family still there. During their time there, a festival of the seventh moon is occurring in which superstition says that the dead are freed from hell on the seventh full moon of the year. As with our Halloween, this festival is a bit similar though more a fair/carnival feel. Anyways, after their fun in the city they head out with their tour guide to the rural section of China to visit the husband's relatives. The trip takes much longer than expected and by the time the tour guide gets lost, it is already dark as night and out in the farms/hills of rolling China, there are no street lights. Eventually they come to a darkened village and the tour guide decides to go ask one of the town folk where they are. This is the beginning of the setup for our movie.

So far so good, right? Well, unfortunately problems begin on three levels. The first and foremost is the camera. The entire film is filmed with a shakey-cam which can sometimes work (see Mulberry Street, Blair Witch, Cloverfield, etc.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Few Good Scares, An Overall Good Film January 5, 2010
Format:DVD
Being a major fan of horror films I am always looking to expand my collection. Upon seeing this film at my local store I decided to give it a try. Past Ghosthouse films have had a wide range of delivery in my opinion. Some of these films can range from good and scary, to more bland and cliche resulting in no scares and a tediously drawn out and complicated story. Well I was quite surprised with "Seventh Moon".

The story takes place in China, where a couple is spending their honeymoon together. They hear about a cultural practice and learn about what happens during the full moon of the seventh lunar month. They are told that the dead are free to roam the Earth on this day and sacrifices must be made to please the spirits. This holiday is actually culturally correct. It is called "The Ghost Festival" and occurs on the 15th night of the seventh lunar month in China. This celebration is also known as "Ghost Day" and citizens of China actually believe that their deceased relatives are free to return to Earth for this one day, much like the Mexican tradition known as "Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead)". This film builds upon that concept of the dead returning, but elaborates into also suggesting that demons are free to roam the Earth as well.

Focusing on the newly wed couple, the film depicts how desperate the two become when face to face with the moon demons. It seems as if everywhere the couple turns, the demons are close behind, and with none of the locals willing to lend a helping hand, the couple must fight for survival on their own. The story progresses from a large city to a small field and ends at a cemetery/monastery building.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good horror November 20, 2009
Format:DVD
I enjoyed this movie. In short, its the story of a new couple, an American girl and her Chinese husband, who travel to China to meet his parents. They travel during the feast of the 7th moon, and find that the Chinese belief in ghouls that come out on this holiday is true. No spoiler here, check out the box cover. While en route in a taxi to the parents, the couple finds themselves abandoned in an obscure, remote village, then scary things start.
Ultimately, this was very well done. I tend not to enjoy Asian horror at all, but this was an interesting hybrid. It was a chinese story told with an american female lead, and a story that is consistent with western horror concepts. The mood was creepy throughout, particularly at the end when she makes a certain journey. This journey (trying to avoid spoilers here) was particularly effective in its horror element; she takes a walk that has the potential to turn deadly at any moment, and the suspense was great. Further, the movie evolves just slowly enough; it takes a while to understand what is going on, and once you do, the heat turns up. Good acting, good concept, and high production values. Highly recommended.

2.0 out of 5 stars Intriguing premise, flawed execution March 10, 2010
Format:DVD
I'm originally from Southeast Asia (Singapore/Malaysia) and am quite familiar with the significance of the Seventh Month of the Chinese calendar, its rituals, and superstitions. When I saw this at the rental store, I decided to give it a try as it sounded promising. Well, to say i was disappointed is an understatement... the movie is badly shot and the story, though initially promising, quickly sinks into a mess of a movie, the only saving grace being the lead actress (Amy Smart).

The story begins with a honeymooning couple. Amy Smart plays a newlywed who is on honeymoon somewhere in China with her Asian American husband who still has roots in China. They procure the services of a benign looking and friendly guide to take them into the Chinese countryside so that they can visit the husband's relatives. Hours later, the wife wakes up to find that their car is stranded in the middle of the countryside in a village, and it's dark. The guide tells her they are lost and that he will get help and return as soon as he can. An hour later, there is no sign of the guide, and so the newlyweds scramble out of the car and go in search of him. Before long, they discover that all is not as it should be and there are sinister goings-on - strange chiming sounds reverberate through the night, animals are tied up as some sort of offering, and they return to their car to find it has been splashed with some sort of bloody substance of indeterminate origin! This is no ordinary night either - it is the night of the full moon on the seventh month of the Lunar calendar where the spirits of the dead are released from the gates of Hell and visit the living, feasting on the offerings, and in this case, expecting something more substantial.

Sounds like a great horror story right?

Scary in some scenes, but for the most part I couldn't see what was going on. Dark camera shots supposedly adds to the horror, but too much of it appears to be cheap filming. Read more
