DVD Review: THE BANSHEE CHAPTER

BANSHEE CHAPTER | © 2014 XLrator Media

Rating: R Stars: Katia Winter, Ted Levine, Michael McMillian, Jenny Gabrielle Writer: Blair Erickson, story by Daniel J. Healy Director: Blair Erickson Distributor: XLrator Media DVD Release Date: February 5, 2014 Although it relies to a large extent on found footage, fear not the format – THE BANSHEE CHAPTER is actually a well-made, delightfully acted and best of all honestly scary brain twist of a horror movie. Between some cleverly edited real footage (we hear from President Bill Clinton, of all people), the name-check of H.P. Lovecraft and a character clearly patterned after Hunter S. Thompson, it’s a trip in …Read On »
