Normally, I'm in favor of turning an original idea upside down for a remake or reboot, but in this case...I have too many childhood memories wrapped up in it.

I was too little to remember "The Banana Splits" initial TV run, but every summer, a local station would run it in syndication

Earlier this year it was revealed that someone was bringing back this children's series, but with a horror twist.

Okay...I'm a little trepadacious, but willing to give it a chance.

NOW tho, the movie's officially been given an R-rating for "horror, violence, and gore."

GORE?!  From "The Banana Splits?"

The movie is about a boy named Harley and his family attending a taping of the show for his birthday and things take a horrific turn.

I don't know if I'm ready for this.  The movie will be introduced on home video later this year and will then make its debut on SyFy.

***UPDATE***

Here's the trailer for the new movie...OMG
