Banshee Chapter (2014)

ImageErickson adapts Lovecraft’s “From Beyond” and throws in contemporary conspiracy theories surrounding MKULTRA and mysterious Shortwave Radio Number Stations. Although it was made with a shoestring budget, it was able to make up for it by balancing stock footage, found footage, and POV camera shots which gave it an immediate sense of tension. He also did a great job of letting the actors sucking us in with their escalating fear and paranoia. This is a worthy addition to the Lovecraft adaptations, and I can’t wait to see what he will pull off when he gets a bigger budget.
