A boy named Harley and his family (brother Austin, mother Beth, and father Mitch) attends a taping of The Banana Splits TV show, which is supposed to be a fun-filled birthday for young Harley and business as usual for Rebecca, the producer of the series. But things take an unexpected turn -- and the body count quickly rises. Can Harley, his mom and their new pals safely escape?

One of the guest stars on the original TV show was The Monkees
. Pay close attention to how the older son, Austin is dressed. He looks like the way Michael Nesmith
dressed while on the The Monkees
(1966), right down to the way he wears his knit hat. Deliberate homage or accident, it's the first thing that comes to mind when he's on screen. See more
Sometimes when the voice actor for the Splits is heard, the Splits' mouths flop/move up and down. But other times, their mouths are stationary despite the voices being heard. See more
During the first half of the end credits, the Banana Splits "perform" their theme song. (Though it's a cover by Fallout Boy's Patrick Stump who also composed the instrumentals throughout the movie) See more
