WHAT FILMMAKERS AND PEOPLE OF NOTE ARE SAYING ABOUT THE BURNING MOON:
"Every other horror film is but glassy-eyed taxidermy above the mantel of The Burning Moon...The cinematic equivalent of humping gravestones after midnight on meth."
--Hunter Stephenson (Borscht Corp Hegemon of Content; VICE)
"An anti-human masterpiece. There's zero doubt that director Olaf Ittenbach was destined to either make this film or rape wolves."
--Zack Carlson (Author Of Destroy All Movies; Alamo Drafthouse Programmer)
"The best description of this movie might be that it's the German Say Anything."
--Michael Koman (Executive Producer and Co-writer of Adult Swim's Eagleheart)
“When the Germans make a horror movie, *they make a fucking horror movie.* Olaf Ittenbach’s flick is built around a corker of a framing device: a smack-addled teen, forced to babysit against his will, terrifies his kid sister with unrelentingly sadistic bedtime stories. It’s basically The Princess Bride with Peter Falk’s part being played by John Wayne Gacy wearing Peter Falk’s flesh.”
--Mr. Beaks (Ain't It Cool News)
“What Creepshow would be like shot on VHS and narrated by a homicidal German Rainn Wilson-clone all hopped up on junk...Enjoy with some Sauerbraten and a nice Gerwurztraminer!”
--Pat Healy (Actor in The Innkeepers; Compliance)
--Art Teele (Former Miami-Dade County Commissioner; Spectre)
