Moonrise (aka Grampire)

Film (Trailer and Excerpts) – 1992

PG
Parental Guidance
It’s the warm, anti-authority bonding that’s best about this playful ditty ... it’s an engagingly silly and kind kids’ movie.
– Duane Byrge, reviewing Moonrise in the Hollywood Reporter
While Moonrise is a more gentle engagement with the horror genre, it encapsulates many of the themes of Blyth’s other work. The manner in which the film reinterprets the vampire genre enables Blyth to appropriate the image of the vampire to represent traditionally underrepresented cultures — youth and the elderly.
– Stacey Abbott, in 2007 book New Zealand Filmmakers
