Plot
The Banana Splits Adventure Hour was produced by Hanna-Barbera in the sixties. It was relatively creepy to begin with, so turning it into a horror movie wasn’t that much of an exaggeration. What company, in their right mind, would accept to pervert their brand, unless they knew it was a safer move than to reboot it? There’s gore, here, friends. This isn’t for kids.
The movie has a lot of exposition and plays, all along, on our assumption that things are going to get ugly. It does so with frequent foreshadowing and by using horror movie tropes all through the first half. Eventually, bodies start piling up. The kills are creative. When it comes to predicting who dies next, this is a game of karma. Yes, this is a slasher flick.
Most characters are paper-thin and that’s alright. The movie is predictable, and, somehow, that’s alright too. Watch clips of the original series if you want to experience this film at its fullest. This bold move is the kind of desecration we don’t see too often. Who knows, it might even ruin your childhood! If you like slapstick gore, you don’t want to miss this.
