Ah Christian Slater, always able to brighten up any film. His latest film though, Playback, might need some extra effort from him to brighten up as it looks very dark indeed. The horror is due to released in the US on VOD in February before hitting cinemas soon after, and although no release date has yet been confirmed for here in the UK, the trailer is too good not to share with you.
From the Press Release:
The Wagner/Cuban Company’s Magnet Releasing, genre arm of Magnolia Pictures, has announced its acquisition of US rights to PLAYBACK, a frightening horror film featuring Christian Slater, directed by Michael Nickles.
While digging into their town’s infamous past, a group of high school students unwittingly unlock a dark secret, unleashing an evil spirit that takes possession of its victims. In addition to Slater, the film stars Toby Hemingway, Johnny Pacar, and Ambyr Childers.
“PLAYBACK is very scary and a lot of fun,” said Magnolia/Magnet President Eamonn Bowles. “We think it will be a hit with horror fans.”
