Not bad- a few logic holes here & there but forgivable. for example; after the friend is questioned for murdering his friend- the girl returns to the house and reads through his notebooks- however, in the real world- every notebook would've been collected by the investigators as evidence.

But- the movie had a serious "creep" factor... the premise of pulling chemicals out of cadaver brains and injecting it into living people was interesting- and the whole "frequency" doorway to another world was a neat angle. I just found it hard to make sense- don't think I ever really did. I mean- if some kind of zombie creature was smashing down the door, wouldn't you take the gun into the locker with you? Why break the glass on the module with the gun handle when you can just shoot it? ... skipping over silly small details like that ruin a movie- pay attention to the details!

The acting was decent- no real cheesy moments. I've seen much worse- and much better.

I just felt they could've done so much more with this movie- but it definitely made me a little "squinty" at times and it's better than most of the pg-13 "horror" flicks out there.

Worth a watch if if you like creepy semi-horror flicks. it's a good 3-star movie.

A great mixture of H.P. Lovecraft, the CIA's MK ULTRA mind-control experiments, the mysterious unknown numbers stations, and Hunter S. Thompson. I watched this movie for free on Netflix and enjoyed it so much that I bought the DVD. Ted Levine, of "Silence of the Lambs" fame, does a fabulous job of portraying the Hunter S. Thompson-inspired character and he steals the show. The interweaving of H.P. Lovecraft's "From Beyond" with the MK ULTRA experiments was perfect and it worked great.

For a low-budget movie, this one delivered more than major motion pictures.

By the way, the "Lonely Traveler" station that is featured in the movie is an actual unknown number station called "Swedish Rhapsody" in the community. You can find actual recordings of that station on the internet if you search for "Swedish Rhapsody Station" or "Conet Project."

I discovered this movie by chance. I was browsing a site that listed upcoming movies being released to DVD/Blu Ray. I saw this and it intrigued me. So I watched the trailer and was stoked to see the film. I read that it was loosely based on "From Beyond" by the great H.P. Lovecraft. That made me even more excited because I love the creeping terror of many Lovecraft works. I saw the low score on this site and that only slightly put me off. But I saw that the critics were giving the movie positive feedback, something that doesn't happen often in the horror genre. So the movie comes out and I buy it and wait till the night comes to watch it. Boy was this a horror gem.

Plot Synopsis. The movie revolves around a journalist who discovers that her college friend has disappeared after taking a hallucinatory drug that the CIA used to experiment with on humans during the MKUltra project. After taking the drug a radio suddenly broadcasts a creepy numbers station signal of unknown origin before "something" comes and takes the person. She goes on a journey to figure out what happened and is joined along the way by a Hunter S. Thompson inspired character who uses the drug regularly. On the journey there are supernatural happenings and creepy CIA footage of patients from the MKUltra era. What the two discover is beyond belief and terrifying.

The movie uses found footage sometimes, but don't be fooled. This is not a found footage movie. There are instances where the film cuts to creepy fake documentary footage as well. But for the most part, the movie is directed in a way that can best be described as a combination of traditional film making and found footage. The directing style for these scenes I speak of is masterful especially for the low budget.

This was an intense little film with some big ideas. I loved the creepy feeling throughout and the creation of old footage of the mind experiments was really well done. Sound design was great and Ted Levine did a great job leaving a nice little twist at the end.

The storyline is an intelligent conspiracy theory based on true facts from our own government. I was surprised and impressed at how many times it scared me!! I just couldn't catch on to the timing and that made for a suspenseful, enjoyably scary movie! Best of all I watched it on Halloween! I would recommend this to anyone looking for an out of the ordinary horror suspense film.

H.P. Lovecraft, Hunter S. Thompson, number stations, conspiracy theories... this movie picks from a variety of influences and reshapes them into a fresh and wicked creepy indie horror movie. Despite what you may think given the trailer, this is not a found footage film. The camera is never justified, and the person holding it is never acknowledged. The view is shaky and claustrophobic, but that is an aesthetic choice rather than dictated by the format of the film. This really worked well, and Banshee Chapter is one of very few horror films that has a dense enough atmosphere to freak me out. Also, in a rare feat of success for the horror genre, I even found the movie's ending satisfying. The actors were great and the characters were stand-out.

I took off one star for a few small reasons. First, the camera work, while really adding to the intensity, still made me a bit motion sick, though far less than, say, Paranormal Activity. If shaky-cam does this to you, be ready for it in this one as well. Also, the ending didn't entirely make sense. I won't say that it detracted from the film, but it left me scratching my head a bit.

In short, I'm an avid horror movie watcher and I heartily recommend this to anyone looking for a suspenseful hour and a half.
