You might remember Hanna-Barbera’s characters The Banana Splits from The Banana Splits Adventure Hour in the late 60’s, which spanned 31 episodes. Now the trippy children’s characters are back and have a new creepy purpose in their new gorey horror movie. Watch the violent trailer for the new and totally not child friendly film, The Banana Splits Movie below:
In The Banana Splits Movie…
“A boy named Harley and his family (brother Austin, mother Beth, and father Mitch) attend a taping of The Banana Splits TV show, which is supposed to be a fun-filled birthday for young Harley and business as usual for Rebecca, the producer of the series. But things take an unexpected turn — and the body count quickly rises. Can Harley, his mom and their new pals safely escape?”
The movie stars Dani Kind as Beth, Finlay Wojtak-Hissong as Harley, Romeo Carere as Austin, Steve Lund as Mitch, and Sara Canning as Rebecca and not forgetting the stars of the show, Bingo, Fleegle, Snorky and Drooper. The movie is directed by Danishka Esterhazy and written by Jed Elinoff & Scott Thomas and produced by Blue Ribbon Content in association with Warner Bros. Home Entertainment and SYFY.
It certainly looks like the movie will be a fun watch if nothing else. We will find out what the characters get up to with their new violent personas later on this year, when the movie will be released on home video by Warner Bros. Home Entertainment. Following that, The Banana Splits Movie will be screened on SYFY.
