Storyline

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

22 February 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I almost rated this lower because Afterdark should know better - films like "Crazy Eights" were inexcusable in their second year, and in their fifth, here's another film entirely as cliché and uninspired as any of those big-budget "horror" films regurgitated into cinemas in the last few years.

Actually, whereas many "Ring" clones feature mysterious deaths before the protagonist starts investigating, this time the characters are investigating weird happenings before they know anyone's dead.

And also the film focuses on several characters, not just the protagonist and love interest, the main threat is represented with practical effects rather than CGI, thankfully, and, um... oh, they're investigating exactly where the banshee came from instead of trying to determine why this creature exists, and...

Actually, that's probably every difference between this and your average "Ring" clone. Not that bad, albeit definitely not scary and very disappointing for a film that's supposedly horror festival material.
