Dark of the Moon
Dark of the Moon is a powerful, mystical folk drama. A tale of tragic love, a la Romeo and Juliet, is at the heart of a story which depicts a clash of incongruent worlds - the mountains where witches and other supernatural beings reside and the valley where the humans live. When John, a “witch boy,” falls in love with the beautiful, lusty mortal, Barbara Allen, he makes a pact with a conjurer to gain human status. His wish is granted on the condition that Barbara remains faithful to him for one year as characters from both “worlds” conspire to thwart their happiness. Jack Allison directs
