The Dark Side of The Moon Review

Image for The Dark Side of The Moon

It is the year 2022. A mysterious systems failure causes the crew of a spaceship to be stranded on the dark side of the moon, while rapidly running out of fuel and oxygen. They are surprised to discover a NASA space shuttle floating in space, and board it in the hope of salvaging some supplies. One by one, the crew is possessed and killed, and it is up to Paxton Warner to find the links between the dark side of the moon, the Bermuda Triangle, and the Devil himself.


A space probe discovers an abandoned NASA laboratory orbiting over the Bermuda Triangle, and investigates, wherupon an Evil force who might just be the Antichrist kills off the astronauts one by one and sometimes revives them as zombies.

The hints at a correlation between the bermude triangle and Hell was later used in the much more successful Event Horizon, but this is hardly a redeming factor of this far-fetched ill-concieved attempt to clone alien, right down to the creature that hides inside it's victims.

The last shot does have a great image, suggesting where all those planes and ships have ended up, but the distributors cunningly blow this twist by putting a give-away still on the promo poster.

A standard B-movie plod through spaceship corridors, with all the ingredients of Alien except a shred of excitement and a decent monster.
