BAD MOON rises on Blu-ray this July with lots of great extras!


The terrible transformation scene aside, BAD MOON is one of the better entries in werewolf cinema. It's a different kind of lycanthrope flick with a cool were-monster design, and a canine protagonist! I can't wait for this disc!

Film Synopsis: Full, crescent, quarter... each is a Bad Moon for Ted Harrison (Michael Pare). By day, he's a photojournalist visiting family in the Pacific Northwest. By night, he transfigures into a horrific half-human – a werewolf.

Dead men tell no tales, so Ted's sure he alone knows about his vile double life. The secret, however, may be out. The family dog Thor, devoted to defending the household, has his suspicions.

Writer/director Eric Red (COHEN AND TATE, BODY PARTS) delivers a new infusion of thrills with this red blooded shocker. Michael Paré (STREETS OF FIRE) portrays Ted, hiding his accursed condition from his sister (Mariel Hemmingway - LIPSTICK, STAR 80) and nephew (Mason Gamble - DENNIS THE MENACE). What better way to hide it than to create suspicion that the local killings are the work of another – especially if that other is the family's all-too-wise German shepherd!
