“German filmmaker Olaf Ittenbach didn’t just make The Burning Moon, he got away with it. It’s the sort of film makes you want to call the police. Shot on VHS, this is the sick tale of a demented teen telling his little sister bedtime stories, but they are completely unacceptable for children or even adults of any age. Detailing detestable murders...[Ittenbach’s opus] concludes with a shocking descent into one of the most gruesome movie depictions of Hell ever conceived. It doesn’t belong in your home video library, it belongs in an evidence locker. But there’s a market for that sort of thing…” (William Babbiani, CraveOnline)
