Coming Soon: The Scariest Horror Movie EVER!!

Post by Nyarlathotep » Wed Feb 20, 2019 1:16 am

The Banana Splits Return in New Hanna-Barbera Horror Movie

This is not an Onion headline People. No surprise that it's going to be on SYFY, the same fuckers who gave us Sharknado.

I bet the murderer is Fleagle. I never trusted that shifty-eyed bastard.

I remember that theme song. That was the signal to turn off the TV and do something else.

It just looked stupid to my little kid self and I didn't know anyone who would admit to watching it.

What did I miss? :notsure:

Nothing can compare with the original horror.

Except maybe the Indians mascot, Slider.
The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.

You watch the opening sequence and you just KNOW that they are performing for an audience of people chained up in some abandoned factory or warehouse, just toying with their victims before the poor wretches are consumed in a stew. Hell, at 11 seconds in, you see one of them capture a small child, undoubtedly intending to devour it later. When they are in their buggies, they are simply hunting "The Most Dangerous Game"

I heard about this on a podcast: The Crack Master.

A rare cartoon that ran on Sesame Street back in the 70s, but which gave little kids nightmares. A lot of kids were terrified by this for years. It's not very scary for an adult, but I guess I can sort of see it. The girl has dead eyes. Black eyes with no iris or pupil. The idea that the cracks in the wall might morph into animals or even scary monsters, plus the weird atonal music. All combine to give a creepy overall effect. They stopped airing it when they realized that it was scaring the shit out of little kids.

A fool thinks himself to be wise, but a wise man knows himself to be a fool.

I remember bits of Sesame Street here and there from my own childhood. Don't remember this though. Interesting. Thanks, Anax

I can kind of see how that might be scary to a tiny kid. But it was worthy.

I knew that Drooper was a shifty bastard.

There is a horror video game (that I have never played, but is quite popular with the kids) called Five Nights at Freddy's which deals with the animatronics at a Chuck-E Cheeze type pizza parlor coming to life at night. It's quite popular in its way. My theory is that this is an attempt to ride on the coat tails of that but they either couldn't afford the rights or (more likely) someone already had them tied up.

Still, I AM gonna watch it. There is no doubt about that. I feel somehow obligated.

Googled it.

PewDiePie did a video, but I couldn't get through more than about 45 seconds.

Stories about PewDiePie tend to be more amusing than the man himself, but he's a pure genius when it comes to generating publicity.
