Old Hag - Banshee


In 1188 A.D., in Limerick, Ireland, Templar Knights chase a creature through the woods and trap her head in a box. In the present day Professor Isla Whelan and her two assistants are researching and labeling historical artifacts in the basement of the university where she works and they find an Irish glove and map with the name Duncan. Isla's estranged daughter Shayla Whelan finds a hidden space behind a wall with a box with the severed head, but they believe that it belongs to deformed person or an animal. Out of the blue, the head screams and they all bleed through the ears. They learn soon that the head is from a Banshee and in accordance with the mythology they are doomed to die. Their only hope is to find the lunatic and discredited Professor Broderick Duncan, whose expertise is in the feminine spirit in Irish mythology. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

She'll Make Your Ears Bleed
9 July 2015 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

In 1188 Ireland, some warrior horsemen chase and attack a red-cloaked figure. Obviously "Screaming Banshee" of the title, the pursued rider is brutally murdered. Flashback over… In the present, California college professor Lauren Holly (as Isla Whelan) is archiving some old relics. She happens upon an Irish gauntlet, which assistant Todd Haberkorn (as Otto) decides to wear. Also found is a metallic box, hidden behind a wall. The gauntlet opens the box and out pops the Screaming Banshee. Well, she doesn't exactly pop out, at first, but her spirit is released. To stop Screaming Banshee, Ms. Holly and her archivist team must seek out help from hammy old Lance Henriksen (as Broderick Duncan)...

In some early scenes, the Screaming Banshee looks intriguing and frightful. But, by the end, budget constraints have turned her into a very silly-looking monster. There is almost nothing given about the Banshee to make her interesting. Having a good moment here and there, relatively new director Steven C. Miller is either unable to interpret a good story, or improve upon a bad one. Some of the later sets look nice, but this is a hopeless Syfy TV Movie. With nothing much to comment on, daughter Marcelle Baer is most valuable player in the attractive cast sweepstakes. Her boyfriend Garrett Hines has great muscles. Perhaps most noteworthy is the creative pluck of Mr. Haberkorn's eyebrows.
