The cult-favorite animal rock-band from Hanna-Barbera’s 1968 The Banana Splits Adventure Hour variety program is back with a blood-spattered vengeance in The Banana Splits Movie, which offers a new, horrrific take on a quartet of beloved family-friendly characters.

The film follows a boy named Harley and his family as they go to a taping of The Banana Splits TV show, which is supposed to be a fun-filled birthday for young Harley. But things take an unexpected turn — and the body count quickly rises. Can Harley, his mom and their new pals safely escape?

Starring Dani Kind (Wyonna Earp), Finlay Wojtak-Hissong (The Kindness of Strangers) and Steve Lund (Street Legal, Schitt’s Creek), the movie is written by Jed Elinoff & Scott Thomas (Raven’s Home, My Super Psycho Sweet 16) and directed by Danishka Esterhazy (Level 16) with music by Patrick Stumph (Fall Out Boy, Gnome Alone).

The Blu-ray, DVD and digital releases of this R-rated comedy-horror-family mash-up include the following:

  • BananaSplits: Behind the Horror
  • Terror on Set (Blu-ray and digital only)
  • Breaking News! The Banana Splits Massacre (Blu-ray and digital only)
