A family of serial killers stalk a young woman out to find the father she’s never known.
Not being a fan of Twilight I didn’t really care Ashley Greene starred in this, but after watching the film I was pleasantly surprised with the film and Ashley Greene’s performance. The film itself isn’t too scary, but it is very creepy in a weird sense. You will feel grossed out at certain parts and just the whole strange energy from the family of serial killers with definitely creep you out. The father of the serial killers performance was much better than the rest of them, but they all worked well together. Some of the supporting acting wasn’t too great, but at the same time it added to the small town feel.
The plot is pretty straight forward, but they throw a few things in there to keep you on your toes and interested. With most horror movies, I wasn’t really impressed by the ending and I’m not sure if there is one, and I won’t post any spoilders, but it definitely felt like there should be an alternate ending. Still Summer’s Moon (Which might also go by Summer’s Blood) was a good suspense thriller and whether you are a fan of Ashley Greene or not you should enjoy this creepy film.

Love presents many challenges to couples…but none so daunting as the one Justin faces with his girlfriend April. Kidnapped by demons, April’s mystery begins to unfold when he finds an ancient book that she has left behind. Using the book, he contacts the demon Lo, ordering it to help him rescue his girl from the fiery pits.
Lo takes a good concept for a film and then makes a not so good film from it. The apparent low budget could be forgiven, but the stage play setup and extremely cheesy parts sprinkled throughout the film take away from the experience. Fans of extremely cheesy films may disagree with me and may enjoy that aspect of it, but it definitely wasn’t for me. The character Lo was done pretty well and was my favorite part of the film, but on the flip side I totally hated the demon Jeez along with his corny song. Jeez should have been more scary than comical, since Lo was able to pull off the terrifying, yet funny at times role. The protagonist Justin was hit and miss, at times he reminded me of Bruce Campbell from Evil Dead, especially with some of the facial expressions, but other times he just overdid it.
The main problem with the film is it was very inconsistent and just when I started liking a part, they interrupted it with something stupid. With a bigger budget and some better editing it could have been good. Lo still had some redeeming value and some people may enjoy it, but it won’t be for everyone.
