Product Description

Anne Roland, a young journalist with an appetite for controversy, follows the trail of a strange government research chemical that might have caused the death of her close friend. After tracing the substance to the desert ranch of an infamous retired novelist, she's drawn into an experience of terror and frightening entities that she cannot escape. The events in this film are based on real documents, actual testimony, and evidence re- searched and uncovered from decades of a terrifying secret program run by the CIA.

4.0 out of 5 stars Strap a Seatbelt on your Sofa 30 Jun 2014
Format:DVD
This is a fairly low budget but very well executed ghost story. Ted Levine (a first rate actor, probably best known as Buffalo Bill in The Silence of The Lambs), plays a dipsomaniac writer who has been involved in experimental governmental research into mind-altering drugs. The effect of the drugs is to give people psychic powers so that, like mediums, they can be in touch with the spirit world. Predictably enough, when this happens it opens the door to a particularly malevolent spirit wreaking havoc with test patients. The film is slightly slow paced, but this doesn't hurt its effectiveness, it is genuinely scarey with several moments which will have you jumping out of your skin. The scenes of patients being strapped down on a chair and suffering the aftermath of the drugs, are far from gorey, but quite disturbing. The lead actress, who I've never seen before, is a thinking man's eye candy, and plays a journalist for an internet newspaper, whose closest male friend goes missing. She starts to investigate the disappearance of her friend, which leads her to Ted Levine's character, and the two of them then go off on a quest to solve the mystery. There is a twist in the tale right at the end, which you may or may not be able to predict. If you like the Rec movie - the Spanish version of the first one - this is in a similar style but with a lot less blood and guts. Well worth viewing.

4.0 out of 5 stars One of the jumpiest films I've ever seen. 15 Jan 2014
By Elle48
Format:DVD
Honestly, this is one of the jumpiest horror films I've ever seen! The opening sequence sets the film up really well, mixing conspiracy theory with truth to create one hell of a creepy introduction. I liked the sudden gore too which I wasn't expecting. Todd Levine is great playing horror's Hunter S. Thompson! One of my absolute favourites from last year's FrightFest.

1.0 out of 5 stars Banish it Chapter, more like 19 July 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I usually watch any film to the end despite how bad it is. But with this Banshee Chapter, I had to turn it off after 20 minutes as it was so bad. I am not a fan of these new style hand cam movies and The Blair Witch has a lot to answer for. That besides, the cover and the trailer make it look so good, but it should be done under the trades description act. If I could have given it a zero score, then I would.

5.0 out of 5 stars Plenty of scares...don't watch alone 4 July 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Despite not knowing much about this film, I absolutely loved it. It had me jumping out of my seat more times than I care to remember, and I found the subject of MKUltra and government experiments intriguing. I found it atmospheric, and it kept me interested enough to keep me watching throughout, despite hiding behind my hands most of the time. Great horror film, and a must see.

4.0 out of 5 stars An awesome litte Horror! 28 Jun 2014
By Jordan
Format:DVD
On my first watch I would of probably gave this movie a small 3 stars but I was probably in a crap mood at the time. This film was surprisingly great! The story was very interesting, and the acting overall was pretty good. THis made a great wee film with a few good jumps and some weird MK Ultra-y stuff! The found footage stuff is also done very well here! Not much shakeyness or anything like it! HIghly recommended! Especially fans of found footage that want a decent film! ;)

4.0 out of 5 stars Jump!!! 26 Jun 2014
By DBT
Format:DVD
Like most reviewers, I loved this. I didn't understand it - it has to be said - but I spent the entire film chewing my nails! It was the sound, the crackling radios and static, and the hospitals, and the idea of.... well. Watch it! Such a horrible idea!
What really elevates this film though is the fact it doesn't rely on stereotypes or clichés that flood and hamper most horror films these days [not least of all the hand held / first person perspective - the biggest cliché of them all...] - the characters are great, the settings eerie and nerve shredding... Really impressed!

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent. Full of tension and scares. 15 Jun 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Very effective splicing of conspiracy theory, found footage and lovecraft themes. The tension builds and builds and I was left feeling pretty creeped out by the time the credits rolled. Great performances, especially Ted Levine. One of the better horror films I've seen in a while.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great fun! 14 Jan 2014
By Seb28
Format:DVD
Saw this at Fightfest. It puts together all the elements of a good horror film: suspense, helplessness/vulnerability, and mystery, taking the real world concept of "Numbers Stations" (which I always found pretty creepy anyway), and combining it with something far more sinister.
