A Blatant FNAF Rip-Off
14 August 2019 | by jeremycrimsonfoxSee all my reviews

When I heard of this film, I was shocked, as it took a classic show from the 1960's and turned it into a horror movie, but seeing the trailer, I was appalled that they decided to make the Banana Splits killer animatronics, which makes this film a cheat attempt at making money off the upcoming Five Nights At Freddy's movie, as people said it was made with a script created for a FNAF film until the creator hated it so much, he took the movie rights from Warner Bros.

I would not blame them. In the movie, Drooper is treated like the Foxy of the group, as he almost runs over Harley, the kid who comes to the last show on their birthday, and becomes the first to turn evil. Also, some of the kills are ridiculous and defy logic (like Drooper killing Stevie by shoving a lolliop down his throat, with blood coming out). Also, the side characters are nothing more clichés (like the father pushing her daughter, Parker, to stardom, Stevie, the alcoholic co-star of the Splits, and a couple who are Banana Splits fanatic and sneak a phone in to get some footage). Also, the movie is not exciting. I think it all depends on whether or not you grew up with the Banana Splits as a kid, but to me, this movie stinks because Warner Bros. took a franchise beloved by 60's and 70's kids and twisted it in order to beat a movie adaption to a indie survival horror game franchise they used to have the rights for, all in the name of making a quick buck.
