You know those great classic horror films that grab your interest right away and hold you glued to the screen for the nexthour and a half or so? Well, this film is not one of those, but it is not one of the other kind either. This film can best be described as uneven, although the good slightly outweighs the bad. The plot is Vincent Price and his soldiers break up a pagan ceremony (complete with lots of young people dancing around in bedsheets) and kill a couple of the participants. The woman they say is a witch puts a curse on Price and his family, she also sommons a "man" who is supposed to bring this revenge around. Price and his followers hear strange sounds that they at first think are howls of a wolf, although they sound more like cross between a warped audio tape and someone stomach after they ate something that did not agree with them at all. Eventually the curse goes into effect and Price tries to figure out what is going on and how to stop it. The story...

The Whitman boys and the only daughter look strinkingly similar to walk-ons and bit players on "The Oblong Box" and "Conqueror Worm"...well, the story tells about Oona sending a banshee to shack up with the...
I really liked Cry Of The Banshee. It was fun and one important factor is there was always things going on. The story wasn't slow. So it was interesting , creative and entertaining. Anyone interested should go for it! Anyway great title right? You will enjoy!
