A sexy horror film and a CIA drug experiment gone wrong round out a lively week.
This week in VOD is marked by two notable indie horror films. First up is The Banshee Chapter, which takes a conspiracy theorist’s paranoia and blows it up into a very scary movie. Banshee is based on real documents, actual test-subject testimony and uncovered secrets about covert programs run by the CIA to create mind-altering drugs. The fictional story is about a journalist searching for a friend who goes missing after taking these top secret government chemicals. The film stars Ted Levine (The Silence of the Lambs), Katia Winter (TV’s Sleepy Hollow) and Michael McMillian (True Blood). This is writer-director Blair Erickson‘s first feature, but Erickson has been a big player in the growing world of transmedia, including writing and directing eight live-action online episodes of The Terminator for Fox.
The Banshee Chapter was produced by Zack Quinto’s Before the Door and HDPC client, Stephanie Riggs and her Sunchaser banner.
