YMMV / Track of the Moon Beast

Go To

  • Accidental Innuendo: "Come on, Johnny Longbow. I'd like to see you live up to your name." (Emphasis already present in film).
  • Ensemble Dark Horse: Johnny Longbow. He's easily the most competent person in the movie. Plus, he makes a fine stew.
  • Fan Nickname: Johnny Longbone for Longbow.
  • Meet Cute: The entire first scene of the movie (i.e., the harebrained "prank") is intended as one.
  • Narm:
    • The "prank" at the beginning of the movie.
    • Advertisement:
    • Kathy "hanging" off the "edge of a cliff", when she's obviously just laying flat on the ground at a slight angle. The narmiest part is her Dull Surprise monotone "Paul. Help me", especially when it looks like she just needs to stand up.
    • Johnny being Not So Stoic.
      Johnny: (Suddenly SHOUTING!) PAUL IS NOT PAUL ANYMORE!!!
    • The way the monster dies is just silly, walking in place.
  • Nightmare Retardant: The monster isn't the most intimidating creature in history.
  • Special Effect Failure:
    • The real moon evidently backed out of the movie at the last second, so at one point we're treated to an obvious picture of it as Paul transforms.
    • The "burning toast" meteor in the prologue.
  • Strangled by the Red String: Paul and Cathy have no chemistry together, but they've fallen in love after a few days. Johnny has more sexual tension with Paul than she does; the same goes for Johnny and Cathy.


How well does it match the trope?
