SyFy's 200th Movie
Scream of the Banshee (2011)
Dir - Steven C. Miller
Some people out there really rag on me for wanting to watch all of those SyFy Original Movies. I can understand why you might not be into these cheesy, bad acted, all around ridiculous flicks, but I have fun with them. Every once in a while one of the films is actually pretty good and this is one of them. Some of the acting is bad, but not all, the family plot line doesn't go anywhere and is a tad stupid. There is some CGI and it is bad. The good news is that the majority of the FX are practical and look pretty damn good. Some of the language was edited for SyFy and on IMDb it lists this as being rated R. There are a couple scenes that could have nudity so I wonder what all is left out.
Fun Fact: The writer, Anthony C. Ferrante, has a background in FX, was one of the zombies in last week's Horror Movie Night selection The Video Dead and was a production assistant on the infamous Clownhouse.
