      Richard Propes TheIndependentCritic.com Banshee!!! is a standard issue low-budget indie horror flick. Rated: 1.5/4.0 Sep 2, 2020 Full Review Jeffrey M. Anderson Combustible Celluloid The writing is about halfway there, the acting isn't too bad and the computer-generated banshee effects are just good enough to register a "meh."

      Audience Member A group of friends spend their Spring Break in Connecticut and are attacked in their camping site by a banshee that has the ability to shape-shift into anything it wants. They eventually take shelter in a house occupied by a local and his nephew which have been battling the banshee for the last couple of days prior to their visit. <i>Banshee!!!</i> suffers from some forced acting and a bit of dodgy camera work. The banshee also had it's bouts of horrible editing and doesn't give off any kind of frightening aspects. The screech it emits comes off as annoying, plus coupled with the dialogue that these characters provide, you can't but hope that they die off quickly. Which brings me to the satisfying part of the film, <i>Banshee!!!</i> dives right into the gore, killing off a couple of the friends almost instantly. I thought I was going to be subjected to a long build-up, but the film came through with a quickening plot. The storyline had a nice ring, but it fell flat because of the amateurish set-up. Maybe with a larger production, the film could have been something special. Instead it's just another reject in a long line of Sci-Fi films. I give the film one thing, though; the gore is mighty impressive for being a low-budget film. When the banshee screeches, heads explode and we're greeted with some nice severings of face and body; with a walking human torso. At least the film comes away with some kind of entertaining factor. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/20/23 Full Review Audience Member Worth watching if you're bored. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review Audience Member low budget c.g.i. ridden horror outing .. i own this movie mainly cause its a spring break film and im a sucker for theme nights :) Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review Audience Member Lots of gore but not enough tears. I felt like I was watching college students take a coffee break after watching their friends got madly murdered. Besides that, Graphics were ok and there were some creative camera shots. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review Audience Member Fairly decent low budget horror. It follows a trio of remaining students holed up in the cabin of a local whose wife was lunch for the banshee and his visiting rock singing nephew, not to mention a female police sheriff on patrol, all eventually coming in contact with the monster at one point or another, joining forces in an attempt to both fight and escape it with their lives hanging in the balance. Some pretty good prosthetic gore effects early on, but the creature is a disappointing CGI abomination. Banshee!!! does have one or two moments that save it from being a complete disaster but not enough and it's not a movie I would ever want to see again.
