2.0 out of 5 stars IT'S IN SECTION 3, 8 July 2013
This review is from: Scream of the Banshee [DVD] [2011] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
The opening scene has a group of "knights" chasing a woman on horseback, 1188 AD. She is dressed in white with a long flowing red cape. The color contrast is excellent. They managed to skewer the woman, who falls off her horse. The men move closer, and to my surprise she arises and they begin combat. One of the knights uses a special box to entrap the banshee, one with special markings, like a large "Hellraiser" puzzle box. At this point I am hooked as the movie shifts to modern times and goes down hill.

A college professor (Lauren Holly) and her students are at work cataloging items when they come across the box and try to decipher the markings. At this point the plot isn't tough to figure out. They open the box, the banshee screams, all who hear it must die, starting with the black guy. yadda yadda yadda. Eventually someone figures out how to get the genii back in the bottle and it is just a matter of who lives, who dies, the peripheral subplots, and special effects that either make or break the movie.

The banshee attacks are a combination of real and psychological, so you never know what is happening.

The acting was so-so. Marcelle Baer, who played Lauren Holly's daughter was Kristen Stewart bad and perhaps the worst in the lot. There is a rift between her and her mom which was never fully developed, as none of the characters were developed.The plot holes along with a weak and predictable plot are the downfall of this film.

Parental Guide: No f-bombs, no nudity, one love scene.
