Killer's Moon Review
Killer’s Moon is Britain’s answer to I Spit On Your Grave only sleazier. Produced in the late seventies it mixes lurid scenes of rape with dollops of ultra-violence and Clockwork Orange Droog style menace. Its story follows four drugged-up mad men who have escaped from the local asylum and seek refuge in a remote hotel in the Lake District where a class of stranded school-girls are staying. Unavailable since the halcyon days of the early 1980s and featuring a script amazingly co-written by award winning author Fay Weldon, this is a true ‘video nasty’ - with style.
This lost cult classic is released here on DVD for the first time and has been re-mastered from original materials. The film is presented with a plethora of extras including director/cast interviews and an audio commentary featuring director Alan Birkinshaw in conversation with Radio London DJ Joanne Good, who played one of the menaced schoolgirls.
