‘Backmask’ Becomes ‘Exeter’

7-backmask

Completed back in 2013, we’re all still awaiting distribution news for Friday the 13th and Texas Chainsaw Massacre director Marcus Nispel’s Backmask, which we’ve just learned has been retitled to Exeter.

In the film, “During a sex, drugs, and rock-fueled party, six small-town teenagers find an old vinyl 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.

Gage Golightly, Kelly Blatz, Brittany Curran, Brett Dier, Nick Nicotera, Michael Ormsby, Nick Nordella, and Stephen Lang star.

Thanks to Fabien M. for the tip.

    just fucking release this movie already!! should we take this as encouraging news that they are renaming the movie? does this mean it’s getting closer to being released? personally i think both titles are terrible but the movie itself i’m very interested in seeing. i like Nispel’s works.

      Agreed. I’ve read some really positive reviews on this flick and can’t wait to see it. At least they could give us a damn trailer or something to hold us off until they actually release the movie.

      This. I have been intrigued by this movie for so long. Even a trailer would suffice right now.

    Marucs Nispel is a bad ass director!! Honestly what he did with the Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake and Friday the 13th (2009) He know’s horror and he know’s slasher! So I will be watching this due to the fact that I respect him as a director.
