THE DARK SIDE OF THE MOON
SOMETHING IS WAITING
Technically, The Dark Side of the Moon is competently made for a B-film the lighting is moody and creates some tension that disguises the low-budget sets. The cast is okay and the model effects are particularly well done. (Although the continuity gap between the model scenes and the rest of the film proves of amusement at one point, the ship is supposed to have come to a dead halt, yet the model is seen to still be travelling on, while the interior of the space shuttle seems larger and vastly more labyrinthine than anything even remotely resembling a real space shuttle).
Unfortunately, the rest of The Dark Side of the Moon is strictly B-grade. The dialogue is thoroughly banal. The bizarre absurdity of the plot the Bermuda Triangle being a portal that comes out on the Moon, the Devil as a parasitic Alien-styled chestburster, and much nonsense over the numerical significance of 666 fails to raise the film above the deadeningly routine. Camilla More as an emotionless and incredibly sexy android is an idea that has appeal, although this part of the plot that is considerably underdeveloped. However, there is one worthwhile final shot of the Moons surface with all the disappeared fighter planes and galleons lying in a crater.
Incredibly enough, the same idea of the Devil in outer space was later used with a $70 million budget as Event Horizon (1997).
