Hanna-Barbera's Bingo, Fleegle, Snorky, and Drooper Star in an All-New Horror Movie "The Banana Splits Movie"

Hanna-Barbera's Bingo, Fleegle, Snorky, and Drooper Star in an All-New Horror Movie

The Banana Splits Movie

 Available on Digital August 13th
On Blu-rayTM Combo Pack and DVD August 27th 

One banana, two banana, three banana, GORE! 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! Warner Bros. Home Entertainment brings you The Banana Splits Movie, an original feature-length film on Digital on August 13, and on Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD on August 27, 2019. The movie is priced to own at $19.99 SRP for Digital, $24.98 SRP for Blu-ray Combo Pack ($34.97 in Canada), $19.98 SRP for the DVD ($24.99 in Canada).

The Banana Splits Movie will offer a new take on the classic 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?

“Get nostalgic and horrified all at the same time while watching the trippy 60’s characters in this all-new tale about fear, power, and an oversized puppet rock-band,” said Mary Ellen Thomas, WBHE, Vice President, TV Marketing, Family & Animation. The Banana Splits Movie is a throwback to a fanatical children’s series with a horror-genre twist — and we can’t wait for the band to get back together for a new generation of fans!”

The Banana Splits Movie stars Dani Kind (Wyonna Earp) as Beth, Finlay Wojtak-Hissong (The Kindness of Strangers) as Harley, Romeo Carere as Austin, Steve Lund (Street Legal, Schitt’s Creek) as Mitch, and Sara Canning (The Vampire Diaries, A Series of Unfortunate Events, War for the Planet of the Apes) as Rebecca. The beloved Bingo, Fleegle, Snorky and Drooper are voiced by Eric Bauza (Looney Tunes Cartoons, Woody Woodpecker, UniKitty!). The film 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 movie is produced by Blue Ribbon Content in association with Warner Bros. Home Entertainment and SYFY. The Banana Splits Movie will make its broadcast debut on SYFY later this year.

Arrows Unleashes American Horror Treasures, British Sci-Fi Classics and German-Italian Thrillers this June!
With summer beating down the door the temperature outside isn't the only thing sizzling. Arrow is brining their own heatwave this June with five new titles sure to satisfy the most devoted of cinephiles. Grab your favorite summer drink, jack up the A/C and get nice and cozy with your couch, you're going to be sitting there a while.
Leading the way this month is the June 25th release of the highly anticipated American Horror Project Volume 2. The American Horror Project, co-curated with the help of author Stephen Thrower, is Arrow's mission to dig deep into the depth of American genre cinema and unearth some lesser known masterpieces. Each volume selects three films that have gone under the radar, gives them gorgeous 2K restorations, and loads them up with enough special features to keep you busy hours after the films have ended. Volume 2 includes Dream No Evil, a surrealistic horror film about a woman that becomes mad in attempt to find her father and gets lost in a dark fantasy world; Dark August, a tale of a cursed man that seeks out the assistance of a spiritualist; and finally The Child, the story of an 11-year-old girl that is able to use supernatural abilities to raise the dead.
This limited edition American Horror Project release includes American Horror Journal Vol. 2, a 60-page booklet featuring new writing on the films by Stephen R. Bissette, Travis Crawford and Amanda Reyes.
Coming to Blu-ray on June 4th is Trapped Alive, featuring genre favorite Cameron Mitchell. This late '80s horror effort finds a group of people trapped in a mine shaft where a cannibalistic mutant hunts them for food. This new Arrow release comes with a brand new 2K restoration from the original camera negative, 3 brand new audio commentary tracks, a brand new making-of documentary and more. Also hitting shelves on June 4th is Michael Crichton's sci-fi classic, The Andromeda Strain. Nominated for 2 Academy Awards and hailed by Roger Ebert as "splendid entertainment," this film from director Robert Wise has been entertaining audiences for decades. With new 4K restoration from the original camera negative and a spaceship-load worth of special features, it's sure to entertain for decades to come.
Carol Reed's 1963 thriller The Running Man comes home on June 18th sporting a new 2K restoration courtesy of Sony Pictures. A man frustrated by his insurance company fakes his own death in order to cash in on the claim. Things seem to be going smoothly until an investigator begins snooping around. Making its official home video premiere, The Running Man comes with a variety of special features.
Closing out the month is the June 25th release of Double Face. This late '60s Italian thriller from director Riccardo Freda stars Klaus Kinski as a millionaire unwittingly led into murder by his lesbian wife. Praised by Mondo Digital as "a sumptuous time capsule," Double Face blends genres and is a must-own for both fans of the German krimi and the Italian giallo.
