Banshee Chapter is a 2013 horror film and the directorial debut of Blair Erickson. The movie begins with stock footage of President Clinton and other people announcing the existence of the government experiment Project MKUltra. The scene then cuts away to camera footage of James Hirsch (Michael McMillian), a young man investigating Project MKUltra. While his friend is filming him, James takes the drug used in the experiments, dimethyltryptamine-19 (DMT-19), only to start to experience extreme anxiety and announce that something is coming and that it wants to "wear them". The camera's footage then cuts in and out, ultimately ending with a shot of James with all-black eyes and a disfigured face. Throughout the film video footage of various patients of Project MKUltra are shown, all of whom experience psychotic breaks while on the drug.
