Mad at the Moon (1992)

Mad at the Moon (1992)

Directed by: Martin Donovan

Starring: Lori Ashton, Hart Bochner, Pat Atkins

Mad at the Moon? More like “I’m Mad at This Movie Because it Was DUMB!!” HA HA HA!!!

In the old west (I think. I’m pretty sure, like… 70%), a woman marries a man she doesn’t really want to marry, who turns out to be a werewolf! The guy she actually likes has been hired by her mom to kill the werewolf, but the girl may or may not love the werewolf. What drama!

I don’t know how many of you are familiar with Syd Field’s “Screenplay”, but it’s a book that basically describes the basic things you need to have in your screenplay. One of the more famous bits of the book describe the three-act structure, where you have your first act, then the first plot point about 15 minutes in, the second act, the second plot point about 30 minutes until the end, and the final third act. At least, that’s how I remember it. Anyway, I just mentioned that because it took 50 minutes of this 98 minute movie for it to get to the first plot point, and even after that, they don’t really do anything interesting. Not sure how a werewolf movie can be so boring, but there you have it.
