MOVIE REVIEW: BANSHEE CHAPTER




* * * *

When her friend disappears after injecting himself with a strange substance which anonymously arrived in the post, a young journalist is on a journey to solve the mystery.  Strange voices on the radio, grotesque shapes lurking in the night and the aftermaths of secret government experiments are all connected and leading her towards some terrible truth.

BANSHEE CHAPTER is the proof that a good horror movie can be made on a shoestring budget if it is well written, directed and inspired.  It’s plot is simple, its heroine believable and atmosphere is creepy. Add to the mix a bat-shit crazy revolutionist writer as a sidekick and a few nods to the classic Lovecraft horror stories and you get a pretty solid flick. 

The main best quality of any horror film remains the ability to scare you, to make you cringe in your seat. The first time director Blair Erickson definitely knows his business. Can't wait to see what he does next!
