Trailer arrives for R-rated Banana Splits horror movie

Last Updated on August 5, 2021

It was just yesterday that we let you guys know that Warner Bros. Home Entertainment and Syfy's THE BANANA SPLITS horror movie had been slapped with an R-rating by the MPAA for "horror violence and gore." And today we have the movie's trailer for you to check out above!

The trippy characters were introduced back in 1968 as the anthropomorphic hosts of The Banana Splits Adventure Hour variety program. The group featured a lion, a beagle, an elephant, and an orange gorilla. Here's the official synopsis for the upcoming horror thriller:

A boy named Harley and his family (brother Austin, mother Beth, and father Mitch) attends a taping of The Banana Splits TV show, which is supposed to be a fun-filled birthday for young Harley and business as usual for Rebecca, the producer of the series. But things take an unexpected turn — and the body count quickly rises. Can Harley, his mom and their new pals safely escape?

The revival stars Dani Kind (WYNONNA EARP) as Beth, Finlay Wojtak-Hissong (THE KINDNESS OF STRANGERS), Romeo Carere as Austin, Steve Lund (SCHITT'S CREEK) as Mitch and Sara Canning (THE VAMPIRE DIARIES) as Rebecca. Danishka Esterhazy (LEVEL 16) is directing from a script by Jed Elinoff & Scott Thomas (RAVEN'S HOME). Blue Ribbon Content is producing in association with Warner Bros. Home Entertainment and SYFY.

The Banana Splits Adventure Hour characters were originally created by the Krofft Brothers for Hanna-Barbera, which produced 31 episodes of the show that originally aired from 1968-70. The original movie will premiere this year from Blue Ribbon Content and Warner Bros Television Group’s digital studio. That release will then be followed by the television debut on Syfy. We'll let you know when we hear more!
