I may pass on this one looks like they twisted the Banshee legend too far.
As I was writing the film, it soon became apparent why there hadn't been other films based on traditional Banshee folklore. The number one reason is that Banshees aren't malevolent or threatening. Which made writing a Banshee feature film limiting. So we were forced to take some minor liberties with the mythology.
You have to remember that it wasn't until 1940 that full moons & silver bullets were associated with werewolf folklore. Before that time, they had NOTHING to do with werewolves. Now days everyone associates full moons & silver bullets with werewolves. But those two key werewolf elements were created by Curt Siodmak when he was writing the Lon Chaney Jnr film, The Wolfman in 1940. Was Siodmak criticized for messing with werewolf folklore? Nope, he's credited with creating werewolf folklore!
