Product Description

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.

A good effort; I thought the director did a good job of creating a tense and atmospheric feel to the film. The lead actress, Katia Winter was very good and really has a touch of Keira Knightley about her (despite beng Swedish in origin) It's a small cast and a small budget and night time lasts a very long time in this film but the story on which it's based has some scope, the desert setting was creepy, good effects and solid performances.
Based upon nefarious CIA drug experiments upon civilians and the aftermath this caused; the effect said chemical has on the brain and the other worldly forces it attracts, it's an entertaining watch. Some of it doesn't make a lot of sense and it's not clear where the Banshee element of the title comes in, seems a bit pegged in after the fact for marketing purposes and the extras are all 2-3 minutes long and largely just provide a synopsis of the original CIA experiments but what the hell.

There seems to be a slew of trash-for-cash, low to semi-low budget horror films being churned out these days with bad lines and gratuitous sex and gore, routine story’s, wooden acting and clichéd scares or glossy horrors that forget to be scary. NOT Banshee Chapter! Although the co-producer calls this a micro budget film, it has much higher standards in every respect, look, feel, effects, make-up, music and of course acting than the routine trash.
The story’s pretty original for a change and keeps you on edge. Inspired by the 1976 CIA MK-Ultra programme, it is gripping stuff.
The only issue I have is that there are scenes that require a video camera style and there is the general motion picture photography, that you would expect in a movie, but, then there is also the occasional unexplained wobbly, stylised, grainy footage, which is confusing, is neither here nor there and not necessary IMO. Still that’s a small complaint.
An outstanding film that is a well-directed and produced production amongst a glut of the usual horror film Narnia. Good music too introducing me to the awesome songs by Mark Lenover!

Oh, did I say this is genuinely creep?

i don't normally like films that are purely about the "jump scares". however, this film was different. i felt that although it mainly relied on cheap jumpy type horror, this film maintained an oppressive feel of menace and dread throughout despite the low budget and lack of big effects. it is based on an h.p. lovecraft story (from beyond) and although it is set in the modern day i feel it captures the feeling of madness and despair that lovecraft's stories conveyed.

a proper low budget gem in my opinion

Scary enough for the not so cynical and casual horror fan.

I personally found this movie to be an unknown gem. I like something with a more original story line and this didn't feel like it had just copied everything else out there.

The camera work, the acting and the story line were brilliant for a cheap watch.

If you like a bit of the X files, mixed in with a scare fest then you are likely to like this. It isn't blood and guts and more frights in the dark sort of movie.

Government drug experimentation, finds that using a compound found in a human brain opens the mind to something else that is out there. It allows us to make contact. Unfortunately this isn't the sort of contact we want to make. What if you accidentally ingest this drug. Is what you're seeing real? What if you see things and then find out you never ingested the drug at all.

Only downside was the actor who played "steve newland" in true blood and trying to detach him as the movie opens with him. If you have never watched that series you won't have the same issue I did.

Its really nice when you take the chance and then find a hidden gem like this movie.

Don't expect big budget. Don't expect expensive effects. Don't expect a perfect story line. Be prepared for lots of night time camera work.

At Frightfest, I was stricken with flu-like illness, and in no way capable of appreciating an atmosphere-driven movie... or so I thought! Yet, this movie really terrified me.

As a Lovecraftian type horror I'd recommend this movie to anyone who liked Absentia (which, incidentally, I'd consider THE horror movie of 2012). A bit less character focused though.

The only downside is of all methods of scaring people, jump "scares" are easily the least talent-requiring, and while this film's use of atmosphere is indeed good, the accompanying jump scares were a bit annoying. Strangely, this isn't the only serious horror movie I've seen recently that also used jump scares (In Fear for example). But, jump scares are an annoyance I can overlook, because the writing and atmospheric elements of the movie easily counterbalance them.

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.
