interesting concept, but a bit lacking in execution
July 6, 2016
Moon Dance had an interesting concept. But the execution of it was a bit lacking.
So we have Samantha Moon. She is a wife, mother, and works for the FBI. Everything is great. Correction, everything was great, six years ago.
One night Sam gets attacked and finds herself transformed into a vampire. She does her best for six years to keep her life as normal as possible. She changes jobs & sleeps while the kids are in school.
Now she finds herself working nights as a private detective, super intuition is a vampire power. She slathers on sunscreen to take her kids to school and back. Apparently the sun doesn't cause her to combust into sudden flames, it just gives her really bad sunburn. She makes up a story about a rare skin disease, but seems to blab to everyone in her life the truth of what she is.
Sam now must adjust to her husband's wanting out of the marriage. ( He is made out to be a bad guy, but He didn't ask for the situation either). He can't stand touching her cold skin. And he is understandably scared of her, she now is very strong and drinks blood.
