Audience Reviews for Scream of the Banshee
Pretty darn impressive for a Sy-Fy movie. The film sees a group of teachers at a school unearth the head of a banshee that soon sets out to kill. It sounds simple and it is. The reason the film works is thanks to the use of some pretty gruesome and effective practical effects and make-up. The 'horror' scenes are genuinely uncomfortable and unsettling, and I certainly didn't want to catch any of the banshee's incarnations hanging around my room. The acting is passable, although the stars sometimes have trouble handling the emotional stuff the script throws in. Unfortunately, there are still some massive mistakes, such as music that continues to swell despite having revealed some scares as fake-outs. There were a couple of laughable moments and the ending just goes off on its own tangent. Still, this is one of the most enjoyable and best B movies I've seen in a long time.
The only thing I liked about this was its originality. I thought the acting was terrible. The Banshee was sort of creepy.
