Last month a Chinese trailer surfaced for Marcus Nispel’s (Friday the 13th, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre) new possession horror, Exeter, and now comes the official trailer.
It is barely any different to the previously released trailer, although this appears to be better edited, and the most notable thing is the removal of the Chinese subtitles. Apart from that, if you saw the trailer a few weeks back then there is nothing really new here. If you missed it a few weeks back, then by all means enjoy!
Exeter is co-written and directed by Marcus Nispel. The film is also co-written by Kirsten Elms and produced by Steven Schneider (Insidious, Paranormal Activity, The Lords of Salem, The Bay) along with Terry Douglas and Paris Kasidokostas Latsis. The cast includes Brittany Curran (The Uninvited), Gage Golightly, Stephen Lang (Avatar, Conan the Barbarian, “Terra Nova”), Kelly Blatz (Prom Night, From Within), Brett Dier, Nick Nicotera (Bitten), Nick Nordella (Greenberg) and Michael Ormsby (The Brothers Solomon)
During a sex, drugs, and rock-fueled party, six small-town teenagers find an old vintage record and decide to play it backwards in order to listen for any subliminal/satanic messages. Lo and behold, a seemingly malevolent spirit quickly infiltrates the group, wreaking havoc as it moves from one body to another. Eventually, however, it’s revealed that the spirit in question is actually trying to convey a message….and that the real source of horror isn’t particularly paranormal, but rather something (or someone) much closer to home.
