Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
The Banana Splits Movie, produced by the same company who made the recent Critters reboot, ALMOST nails its impressively odd concept. Yup… remember the cute kids show from the 60’s… well the The Banana Splits are back. But as insane psycho killers. Preying on audience members. And executives. And, in fact, anyone that get’s in their way. As a concept it’s up there with Killer Klowns From Outta Space but whilst that movie has its tongue firmly in cheek, sadly Banana Splits takes itself too seriously and a dose of that stupid but graphic horror humour would have worked a treat here. So far from terrible, there’s things to enjoy here but it’s certainly not essential.
