Review: Banjo (Directed by Liam Regan) (May 2016)

Liam Regan's Banjo (2016)
Banjo is a feature length twisted comedy feature from Liam Regan. It was originally a short film and has now gained a cult following in the last 18 months of festival showings running 82 minutes. What made me laugh about Banjo is that it was based on a personal experience by Regan which plays as a running joke. The lead charter is named after Billy in Gremlins (1984) surname with other in jokes to boot. I felt that I got the references to Regan's film and that was an enjoyable thing to see. Ronnie (The Imaginary Friend) was kinda based on Funny Man (1994) and has hints of Drop Dead Fred (1991). People I saw the film with, also praised the sound and music to Banjo. I have to agree with them credit due to all that worked on the film! Watch out, you might even see Liam Regan's mentor and hero, Lloyd Kaufman in there as a Cameo. It must have been a child-hood dream for Regan. Like I said, the whole film is twisted and should appeal to a cult horror crowd.
