Just remember: Even though you’re dressed like you’re in the movie, Halloween isn’t actually The Purge, so you’re still beholden to the law! Don’t let the Halloween masks give you any bad ideas. On August 1, Dragon Con announced that it would require convention attendees to wear face masks indoors at all times. We did all the face paint and collected the costumes and pieces of clothing in the past week. My daughter and her friend got together and painted the tee-shirts themselves with fabric paint. Harley’s love for the Splits, especially Snorky, is easily one of the most touching parts of the film and it was nice to see his friend Zoe (Maria Nash) grow a fondness for the Splits. What you really come to a film like The Banana Splits Movie for, though, is the Splits themselves, the humor, and some incredibly gory kills. There’s also a lot of fun kills that come from the Splits and nothing is off the table.
However, even with these fun kills and fun vibes, the film’s tone dips too deep into dark horror and the darker tone makes the film not as fun as it should be. It’s a fun piece that indicates everyone was trying to produce something cool and special. Three special features are found on the Blu-ray. With book and lyrics by Brian Yorkey and music by Tom Kitt, Next to Normal won the 2010 Pulitzer Prize in Drama and three 2009 Tony Awards, including Best Score, and was also chosen as “one of the year’s ten best shows” by critics around the country, including The Los Angeles Times, The Washington Post, Rolling Stone and The New York Times. The screenplay by Jed Elinoff and Scott Thomas needed to either have more horror moments or less personal drama. There’re some really fun, self-aware moments that come from all of the characters and makes the return of the Splits a bloody good time.
The Banana Splits Massacre,” a short, fake cable news report recounting the events we’ve already seen in the film itself. Kingdom Hearts follows the events that took place in the video games with differences to account for the loss of interactivity a video game provides. Book character costumes for kids are always a hit for Halloween parades, trick-or-treating, and classroom events alike. Being that the character is bare-chested and covered in tattoos, sure – they could have just sold the necklace and grass skirt and maybe some tattoo appliques, but you have to figure most kids aren’t going to be trick or treating without a shirt on in late October. This tutorial can be used to create costumes for both kids and adults. Watching them walk around with murderous intent was absolute blast and they were legitimately creepy at times – especially when the fuzzy costumes start to fall apart, and their cold machine interiors start to show. So, while the Splits go on a murderous spree to ensure that their show lives on forever, Harley and his family will have to survive the night and stay out of their murderous grasp.
Honestly, the final on-stage sequence that happens in the end is easily one of the best parts of the film and when viewers will see Fleegle and Drooper bring out a horrifying wheel, they’ll find themselves chanting Banana Split just as I did. A splatter film using the fully licensed likenesses of Hanna-Barbera’s Banana Splits. Due to their programming going a little haywire, the Splits are ready to do whatever it takes to keep their show alive – even if it’s a little sadistic. Though the show’s costumed, animatronic, and funny animal characters have entertained audiences for years, the show is actually about to be cancelled and it doesn’t sit well with the costumed characters. Putting a horror spin on a Hanna-Barbara, The Banana Splits Movie offers a gory good time and some funny moments, but viewers will be left split if the viewing was worth it. From a stage-dad trying to get his young daughter to be famous to a trendy social media star couple, there’s some fun character-types and tropes here that could’ve made for a fun and funny watch. Unfortunately, a lot of the adult characters are really not that much fun and are so unlikable that it’s hard to have fun with the movie.
