Product Description

In 1997, 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.


AN ANTI-HUMAN MASTERPIECE... Satanism. Disembowelment. Sexual assault. A particularly notorious segment appears to have actually been shot in Hell. There's zero doubt that Olaf Ittenbach was destined to either make this film or rape wolves. Zack Carlson, editor/author of DESTROY ALL MOVIES --Zack Carlson, Editor/Author of DESTROY ALL MOVIES

AN ALL-OUT SPLATTER BLOW-OUT... A pathologically inventive, heinously clever slate of some seriously bent sh*t. Chas. Balun, Gore Score --Chas. Balun, Gore Score

HARDCORE GORE.... A must see for those who think HOSTEL was the beginning of this kind of stuff.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ultra Brutal Gore August 1, 2008
Format:VHS Tape
The Burning Moon is an unbelievably gory splatter film from German Director Olaf Ittenbach. In the movie a little girls older, drug addicted brother tells her horrifying bedtime stories filled with some of the most over the top splatter ever seen. I have seen many gruesome splatter movies and this one is definitely near the top of the list. The scene in hell is so gruesome and horrific that it has to be seen to be believed.

I highly suggest buying The Burning Moon if you're a fan of hard core gore.

5.0 out of 5 stars German gore at its finest!! March 19, 2012
Format:VHS Tape
I thought this was a "real life"snuff film when I saw the trailer for it on Traces Of Death II,I did not want to watch it at first until I realized it was all well,made special gore EFX!!!Maybe because all I saw was graphic scenes of brutal carnage of the notorious "Hell scene"towards the end of the movie-reminds me of the sheer brutality of the final reels of Deodato's Cannibal Holocaust!!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Burning Moon January 2, 2010
Format:VHS Tape
NOOOOO Movie I have ever seen has the gore this movie has. It isn't really scary but the effects are 2nd to none. Two things wrong with it.
1)I don't care what move it is, if it be this one or another. I have never liked subtitles. You spend all your time reading. I like dubbed movies.
2)The movie needs to be on DVD.
