    Yawn...

    Me and @Underdunn saw this yesterday. Load of rubbish. It COULD have been "the greatest thing ever". But it ain't. Terrible and boring idea. Wasted opportunity.

    I was in the original Banana Splits from 1968. I played 'Dung'.

    I am in no way affiliated with this remake, or with Run-DMC.

    I thought that this thread was going to be a disappointment even before I opened it. It was.

    Threads often change topic mid-flow on this forum. If anybody has something more to say about Red Dwarf die casts, there's nothing to prevent a return to that discussion.

    No. It was a script for the movie version of ‘Five Nights At Freddys’ written before Warner Bros lost the rights to the characters. They then quickly bought the rights to the banana splits instead and simply changed the names but kept the same story. So now the banana splits are robots, simply because the puppets from five nights were. It makes no sense. A horror movie based on the splits could have been genius, they could have made the ultimate head-f*ck trippy childhood nightmare come to life. This is just a cynical attempt to save face over messing up their original movie and it’s sad. Just wait for blumhouses five nights instead.

    I don't see how anyone can assume a straight to DVD SyFy original was going to be good.

    Because people are morons who let cash-grabbers like Syfy do this to them, films like this or sharknado and it's ilk are designed to generate semi-ironic cries of 'omg this is the greatest thing EVER!' - despite no love or genuineness going into the making of them at all. They rely on the thick and susceptible to market their movie for them and for over a decade now, probably since Snakes On A Plane, it's sadly worked.

    Snakes on a Plane was the only one I ever seen. I was made to go with a load of friends, they all whooped and hollered like a married with children audience. I was scared.

    I'm sorry it's not a Fellini classic like you are all used to

    I'm sorry that so many horror-fans have allowed the bar to be raised so low now that they'd celebrate a movie about a killer lamp-post if they're spoon-fed the idea it's 'so bad its good'.

    Wake up Neil, ffs.

    I loathe paranormal horror, and I still say that it's the greatest thing ever
