One has to be a bit skeptical with a production that is written, directed, and edited by the same person. That person, in this case, is Kevin VanHook, who has done a commendable job of storytelling without getting his audience wrapped up in annoying theatrics. No bobbling cameras, filtered color, or gore for gore's sake. Straight forward action with some excellent special effects; so well done and very effective.
A truly professional cast with John Amos almost stealing the show.
Now for the best part. The ending. NO SPOILERS HERE. But what a great piece of cinematic genius. You'll sit back and say...wait a minute...oh my God...that's cool...real cool.
Viewing "VOODOO MOON" will cast a spell on you.
You'll want to see it again.
acted, well edited, and well directed, it features some good, effective CGI effects work and fine cinematography. Kevin Van Hook ("The Fallen Ones") gives us a suspenseful, action-packed thriller about a demon fighter named Cole (Eric Mabius) out to finally put and end to a particularly loathesome and murderous creature of darkness that calls itself "Daniel" (and which typically presents itself in human form as a seductively handsome young man...all the better to set one up for destruction). Cole has waged battles with "Daniel" over many years and certain psychic indicators tell him the climactic "last battle" is imminent. Gathering assistance from people he has saved from Daniel in the past (characters excellently portrayed by fine actors like Dee Wallace Stone, John Amos, Jeffrey Coombs and others), as well as help from his own sister, Heather (Charisma Carpenter), Cole prepares for the final confrontation...and, at a sunken townsite ("Merrifield, Tennessee") under a lake...that last battle is joined.
This is an entertaining genre flick...sort of like an earthbound, contemporary version of a Jedi Knight vs. a Sith Lord....the Good side of The Force vs. The Dark Side...and well done all around.
The movie is somewhat mis-titled and I suspect that was just a marketing ploy. There is little to do with any moon anywhere in this (except that there IS one in the night sky whenever supernatural battle is joined), and the involvement of Voodoo is minimal. The only substantive depiction of Voodoo is only at the beginning of the film...a sequence depicting a confrontation betweeen Cole and Daniel in "Haiti"...Read more ›
After the first hour, I was ready to give Voodoo Moon a 4 or 5 star rating. The characters have potential, the plot was intricately woven, everyone had a role to play in this great fight against good and evil, and there were a hundred small subplot just waiting to be resolved. The villain even alluded to `making' the hero twenty years ago. Cool! How did that happen I wondered eagerly. I was almost bouncing up and down in my seat when I heard about a really cool underwater ghost town. YAY! This was going to be fun!
Nothing. No subplots were tied up. The main plot isn't resolved. It isn't like they tie up a few loose ends then prepare you for a sequel- that's not the feeling that you get here. No ones powers were explained, the big, build up fight took ten seconds, and the main `boss' villain was defeated in a silly, too easy way.
If the movie had been developed more, polished more, it would have been great. As it is now, watch it only if you want to have some cool character ideas to play around with in your mind, because nothing will be fixed on screen.
Bottom line, I can't recommend it in good conscience.
