Movie Info

A female car thief becomes the target of a notorious serial killer after stealing his mint-condition '66 Dodge Charger in this made for cable thriller from director Kari Skogland (Zebra Lounge, The L Word). Sage Rion (Taryn Manning) is a car thief who's so proficient at her profession that she's earned the nickname Banshee in certain criminal circles. Her skill for stealing cars is unmatched, and when she stumbles across the Dodge Charger of her dreams the temptation proves too powerful to deny. Unfortunately this particular muscle car belongs to a genuine "Badass" (as indicated on the license plate), a fact that Sage discovers all too late after arriving home and finding her boyfriend's severed ear along with a threatening note. Should Sage fail to return the car to its rightful owner by midnight, her recently-hearing impaired boyfriend will meet a grisly demise. But Sage isn't up against your typical murderous madman, because this particular psycho (Christian Campbell) is a popular local DJ who records the screams of his victims, mixes them with the sound of his accelerated hearbeat, and uses the resulting sounds to keep local clubbers on their feet all through the night.

Audience Reviews for Banshee

A mostly emotionless drama featuring a car thief who steals a serial killer's hot rod and lives to regret it. Taryn Manning is appealing but can't act worth a darn as is also the case for the rest of the cast. The serial killer angle is a decent thought, but it is mishandled so badly that you barely feel the threat from the guy. Made for cable, and it shows.

A misleading marketing of "car" focusing brought along with lots of false hope, otherwise could be an okay TV-movie scale thriller.

I've seen this movie twice now. It is OK. Taryn Manning plays Sage a tough chick who wants revenge when a crazy dj kills her boyfriend. Even has the obligatory car chases.
