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

Watched this movie for the first time on Netflix, yesterday. Very disappointing. I don't know how this movie can be called a slasher movie. Even, if it was released in the 70's. Read morePublished 16 months ago by robert lee bruce
No review on this one. Why waste my time. Just 2 stars says it all.Published 19 months ago by Dennis
The girls wear the baggy white gowns on the cover the whole show, although I may have missed something fast-forwarding. The intro promised nubile women, so ditch the muu-muus. Read morePublished on September 29, 2013 by BobJ
Killer's Moon is badly written, badly acted, but unfortunately, it has very little nudity or gore--which is the whole point of watching slasher films. Read morePublished on August 24, 2013 by Baron Von Cool
