I have not been this scared in a movie for a while! A promising new director! A lot of horror/ sci-fi filmsruin it by showing too much of a creature or whatever. I find it far more creepier when you only see flashes, what your imaginationI have not been this scared in a movie for a while! A promising new director! A lot of horror/ sci-fi filmsruin it by showing too much of a creature or whatever. I find it far more creepier when you only see flashes, what your imagination creates is often far scarier then some bad special effects! I screamed at least 5 times and covered my eyes alot ha!

The Banshee Chapter isn't the best, but it is decent enough, compared to modern horror films it is a masterpiece. I wasn't on full edge, but some aspects of the film are shocking & disturbing.

I wasn't on full edge, but some aspects of the film are shocking & disturbing. I have never seen similar plot on the big screen, so technically it is original. Don't expect Oscar worthy acting here, but pleasing enough. I liked it, I won't go on full recommendation, but worth a check. Expand

The story in “The Banshee Chapter” creates an almost instantly captivating tale around urban legends that arose after it was made public of the black ops experiments the Government implemented on citizens during the 60’s and 70’s using LSD.The story in “The Banshee Chapter” creates an almost instantly captivating tale around urban legends that arose after it was made public of the black ops experiments the Government implemented on citizens during the 60’s and 70’s using LSD. That is a conspiracy lore ideology that I find myself trolling the internet reading. This element weaves eerily effortlessly into the Lovecraft world of horror, particularly the story surrounding the scientist that creates an antenna that becomes a gateway between worlds ultimately allowing both sides to move between. “The Banshee Chapter” pushes out a dark, nightmare that stays serious, flows nicely, and maintains a chilling atmosphere from start to finish without becoming boring.

The acting in this film is pretty stellar, not too melodramatic or forced but so polished that it just seems over-rehearsed. The transitions between the found footage scenes and the standard third person point-of-view are balanced and move smoothly without the effects being made into some big production. The special effects and soundtrack in “The Banshee Chapter” both work nicely in creating a chilling, and entertaining atmosphere with moments that are gripping, and intense while feeling creepy as heck. The special effects are the usual gimmicks and tricks to create shock moments and suspense but the director maintains control of the elements so nothing looks cheap or pointless, or more importantly lacking.
