Cold Moon (2016) Review

In a sleepy southern town, a young girl disappears – but all hopes of finding her alive are soon shattered by the discovery of a body in the river. But the end of the search is just the beginning of a waking nightmare. Traffic lights blink in an eerie warning, a ghostly visage prowls in the streets and graves erupt from the local cemetery in an implacable march of terror. Beneath the murky surface of the river, a shifting, almost human shape slowly takes form to seek a terrible vengeance.

Cold Moon is based on the novel Cold Moon Over Babylon by Michael McDowell, writer of the Tim Burton hits Beetlejuice (1988) and The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993). Both of those titles proved to be fresh and innovative; however there is very little that is fresh or innovative in director Griff Furst’s movie.

To begin with I was completely gripped and overwhelmed by the emotional poignancy that accompanies the untimely death of a young girl that kick starts the plot. However Cold Moon quickly unravels and the build-up of tension dissipates, upon revealing the reason and cause behind the young girl’s death. It’s obvious as to who the main culprit is – although it is nice to see that actor play against his usual type – as is the well-worn path that Cold Moon decides to take following the impressive set-up. It unfortunately becomes tired rather quickly.
