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.

The Almanac of Terror 2019: 89 Years of Horror Movie Statistics

The following recommendation lists are based on 2000 horror movie reviews. They were extracted from a database and formatted for this book. Tales of Terror (www.terror.ca) is an online “gamified” tool designed for horror fans, students, authors and filmmakers. “Gamification” is the adaptation and transformation of tangible concepts into empirical games. Not unlike sport publications, fantasy leagues and role-playing games, the Almanac of Terror mixes and aggregates different statistics, facts, ratings and opinions. Most of the lists included in this book are sorted from best to worst according to their overall score. Some lists are sorted by pertinence. Our classification method uses genres, subgenres, ambiances and antagonists. Our different ratings are as follows: stars, story, creativity, action, quality, gimmick, and rewatchability. We sometimes use the “creepiness” factor when populating certain lists.
