Editorial Reviews

Four mental patients, the products of illegal medical experiments, escape from an institution in Britain's rural Lake District. Armed with a stolen axe, they kill a game warden and mutilate a dog before encountering a broken-down bus. The vehicle's stranded female passengers search for a place to spend the night, unaware that the psychopaths are right behind them. Anthony Forrest and Tom Marshall star in this notorious 1970s British slasher.

Take a bus load of nubile schoolgirls who get stranded in the Lake District, four violent prisoners who are being treated with a new drug that has them believing that they are living in a dream and a couple of decent chaps who fill the knights-in-shining-armour role and you have the basis for something of a cult British horror movie. I first saw this film in the early 1980s, in the good old days of pre-certificated videos. As far as I know, `Killer's Moon' was never reissued in the UK after the introduction of the Video Recordings Act until this DVD's release in 2008. It's one of those films that you felt could have succumbed to the vagaries of the censors' sensibilities, especially because of its depictions of sexual violence. The good news is that the film is uncut. The comparisons with I Spit On Your Grave (Millennium Edition) and A Clockwork Orange (Two-Disc Special Edition), though, are way off the mark.

Having been advised by their doctors that the new drugs they have been given will enable them, through dream therapy, to act out their most violent and debauched fantasies, our four psychopaths have escaped the confines of their hospital and are now traipsing through the countryside. These four men, complete with their white hospital gowns, are unfailingly polite to each other as they delight in acts of murder and rape, constantly reassuring themselves that they are only dreaming. These characters, played superbly by David Jacskon, Nigel Gregory, Paul Rattee and Peter Spraggon get the best dialogue, at times surreal, at others sinking to maudlin comedy.

Kind of tame for escaped mental patients and a group of young girls. They had a good idea but no suspense at all, laughable violence and the fire scene at the end was really a good summary of a cheaply made horror flick

It is very exciting that all those European cult horror films are arriving in mass quantities to the US in their Blu-ray formats. One of the main distribution companies is Redemption, who has been responsible for bringing the works of such cult directors as Jean Rollin, Dario Argento, Mario Bava, Jess Franco, and others. As part of their prestigious catalogue, comes the riveting and electrifying "Killer's Moon," directed by Alan Birkinshaw.

Right at the beginning of the film, we are told that a criminal has escaped from the hospital, while being in treatment, and that he took three other insane individuals with him. They are apparently living in a dream, and which "people are the devil and in need of obliteration." Enter a bus full of school girls who are taking a ride at the countryside. Sadly, their bus suffers a malfunction, and they have to find shelter for the night. Luckily, they find a hotel, which happens to be empty due to the season. Enter, too, two fellows that are taking a break from the city and go camping around the same area, as well a local man who serves as a watchdog for the community. Of course, the escaped maniacs also decide to wonder around the vicinity, and very soon you'll have the first dead body, prompting somebody to say, "A lone, lost girl found a body, at the wrong end of the ax. How is that for the great English outdoors?"

"Killer's Moon" is dark and penetrating. Mixing cute girls with rampart murderers almost always pays off, and this is no exception. The storyline is a bit similar to "A Clockwork Orange" (1971), in which it deals with loonies dressed in white committing horrible acts against their fellow humans. However, its dialogue is more intense and clever, I think, and the story is not as sophisticated, if you will.

KILLER'S MOON opens w/ a busload of schoolgirls, along w/ their teachers, driving on a rural English road. Uh-oh! The bus breaks down in the middle of nowhere. This leaves the female passengers, and their male bus-driver, to walk through dense forest in search of a place to stay the night. Fortunately, they happen upon a games-keeper who leads them to a hotel. It's empty of customers due to being closed for the season. Not-so-fortunately, a group of four sexually deviant, homicidal maniacs have escaped the local mental hospital, and are heading toward the same hotel! To make things worse, these guys are also under the influence of hallucinogenic drugs! If this sounds like the perfect set-up for a nightmarish bloodbath, well, it is, but only to a certain extent. These deranged perverts begin raping and killing right away in disgusting fashion. However, there are several periods of dullness that threaten to extinguish any tension. Two relatively normal blokes happen to be camping nearby. Can they get to the hotel in time to save the terrified girls? While KILLER'S MOON does have its (blessedly brief) indefensible moments of sexual violence, it also turns out to be a rather slow, directionless little survival / revenge thriller. Worth a watch...

I've read reviews of this "film",most memorably at britishhorrorfilms.com,but watching it is a whole other ball of wax.enter at your own risk indeed.I guess you could call it bizarre,mostly it just meanders from one scene to the next with nothing much happening and when it does you'll just be scratching your head asking "why?".the term "camp" doesn't quite do it justice.

****SPOILER ALERT****

I spent the last fifteen minutes repeatedly wondering "Where did the shotgun go?".When it reappears I sat there gobsmacked by the sheer stupidity.
