I propose a new rule of thumb, which should be obvious (it is in print media), but that I don't think anyone has ever codified: if a movie's title contains more than one exclamation point, that movie is bound to suck. (Really, how many movies containing a single exclamation point in their titles are worth watching? Think about it. Them!, maybe, or Beware! The Blob if you love bad horror as much as I do, but other than that...) Case in point, the triple-exclamation-ed Banshee!!!, a basement-budget CGI-enabled creature feature from first-time feature director Colin Theys. His background is in comedy, Which makes sense, because this movie is laughable.
Plot: a bunch of kids, the woods, you know the drill. This round of monster buffet consists of Veronica (Confessions of a Shopaholic's Ashley Bates), Lake (Hell's Gate's Troy Walcott, and see what the screenwriters did with the names there? Huh? Huh?), Kerry (Predator Island's Iris McQuillan-Grace), Jen (The Life Before Her Eyes' Cristina Santiago), Chad (Pickman's Model's Jesse Murphy) and Lauren (Jade Anderson in her first film role), Thomas (John Doolan, also in his debut), and a few other guys whose names haven't been mentioned by the time we get to where everything explodes. In any case, they're all out in the woods for spring break, a supernatural monster (see title of film) possesses one of them, others die, the survivors hook up with some locals who also know about the creature, heroic standoff, blah blah blah.
Nothing here you haven't seen before, and done better, a thousand times in movies just like this one.Read more ›
