Scream of the Banshee & 51 Plot Details


After Dark and SyFy original films

After Dark Films is partnering with SyFy to deliver two new original horror films: Scream of the Banshee and 51. Both have gotten some press here at Shock and After Dark’s Courtney Solomon detailed their relationship with SyFy in an exclusive interview earlier this month.

Today, however, we’ve received plot details for both aforementioned titles. Scream of the Banshee, as you know, stars Lance Henriksen and Lauren Holly. Holly plays an archeology professor who unearths a dangerous artifact, unwittingly releasing a creature that is able to kill with the power of its bone-splitting scream. Steven C. Miller directs.

51, meanwhile, is directed by Jason Connery (The Devil’s Tomb). The film chronicles what happens after political pressure from the American public forces the Air Force to decide to allow a select few well-known reporters limited access to the most secretive base on the planet: Area 51. But when one of the base’s hidden “long term visitors” exploits this unprecedented visit as a chance to liberate himself and his fellow alien captives, Area 51 turns from a secure government base to a horrifying destination of terror.
