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

This was AWESOME! I love GORE! Needless to say, I didn't buy it for the acting, cgi, plot, etc.... This is just pure entertainment for any fan of gore done the 'old fashioned' way. Read morePublished 8 months ago by Akasha Dukeller
I first saw this German chiller in the late 1990's via the much missed video rental store. I had never heard of the film but many gorehounds had mused about The Burning Moon's... Read morePublished 19 months ago by anaxamander
Idk why I bought this. I love horror but somehow deep down knew the gore subgenre was not for me. No real suspense or "horror", just gore. Read morePublished 19 months ago by Boddicker
Amazon has this incorrectly listed as being widescreen. It is in old 1:33 ratio.
The quality of the film is very poor, and looks absolutely horrible on modern large... Read more
