Director Alan Birkinshaw brings us an ‘endless night of terror’ in his bloody late seventies horror Killer’s Moon. When a school outing of teenage girls arrives at their destination in the Lake District, they find themselves subjected to the murderous designs of four escaped mental patients who believe they are trapped in a dream.
Released the same year as Carpenter’s Halloween (1978), and very much in the vein of movies by Pete Walker and Norman J Warren, Killer’s Moon delivers a very British take on the burgeoning slasher phenomenon providing a hallucinogenic violent trip into a countryside hell. Often descried as one of the most tasteless UK features ever made, it drips with 80s style gore and a twisted form of home grown folk-horror.
