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.

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.

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

Films have used technology as a conduit for creepiness for a long time. Ringu, Shutter, Videodrome, One Missed Call - all varying in quality, but the list goes on and on. There's just something very disturbing about staring into static and suddenly finding someone staring back.
Banshee Chapter explores the idea of number stations - shortwave radio stations that emit random sequences of numbers for no apparent reason - which are actually real and pretty creepy in themselves. Our heroine investigates the disappearance of a friend who recently took a secret drug developed by the government, documented on a tape that was interrupted by one of these stations. She uses her skills as a journalist to investigate the drug further, following the pathway of this station's range. She discovers that whoever takes this drug usually disappears, stating something along the lines of "they're here" and triggering the number station to play on any nearby radios. (This will be familiar fare to any fans of recent internet urban legend. I would be shocked if the writer or crew weren't inspired by SCP or Slenderman, or any of their spinoffs.)
The film has an interesting tone, and didn't fall into the trap of making their characters unlikeable or underdeveloped. I cared about the main character, and found that she acted fairly logically and understandably for the situation (or, as much as the situation allowed). The story was well paced, well timed, and the scares were ok, if a little predictable.
I think that is my main criticism for Banshee. While the idea of it is very scary - number stations, a mystery drug, government testing, Lovecraftian themes - it never really lives up to it's themes.

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.
