The classic 1960s kids show The Banana Splits is becoming a horror movie, and now, Syfy has released an official trailer for the bizarre project.

In the trailer, one family’s trip to see a taping of the Banana Splits’ show takes a gruesome turn after the robotic members of the band begin terrorizing and torturing their studio audience.

While this unlikely Warner Bros. Home Entertainment film won’t have a theatrical release, it will be released on Blu-Ray and digital this summer before making its television debut on SyFy later this year.

The Banana Splits was produced by the legendary team of William Hannah and Joseph Barbera, and designed by Sid and Marty Kroft. The Banana Splits ran for three seasons, between 1968-1970 on NBC, and was an early mix of live-action and animation.

Directed by Danishka Esterhazy, The Banana Splits Movie stars Dani Kind as Beth, Finlay Wojtak-Hissong as Harley, Romeo Carere as Austin, Steve as Mitch, and Sara Canning as Rebecca. Bingo, Fleegle, Snorky and Drooper will also appear. The film is written by Jed Elinoff and Scott Thomas.

The Banana Splits Movie hits Blu-Ray and DVD this summer, and premieres on Syfy later in 2019.
