A young journalist (Katia Winter) with an appetite for controversy, follows the trail of a strange government research chemical that might have caused the disappearance of her close friend (Michael McMillian). After tracing the substance to the desert ranch of an infamous retired novelist (Ted Levine), she's drawn into an experience of terror and frightening entities that she cannot escape.
The labyrinthine trail of evidence leads her into the disturbing world of black ops chemical projects, unexplained radio transmissions, and shadowy disfigured entities in the blackness of night. Anne will do anything to uncover what lies behind her friend’s disappearance. But to her horror, she discovers that it wants to find her too.
Not only did it have us jumping out of our seats, it left us with that same unsettling sense of paranoia we experienced after watching The Ring for the very first time! Banshee Chapter uniquely blends the suspense-driven horrors of the 70’s with the creepy mythology of J-horror to create some truly terrifying scares. The fact that it’s based on real documents, actual testimony, and evidence researched and uncovered from decades of a horrifying secret program run by the CIA makes it beyond creepy and therefore a must-see!
