Now in production is a new UK horror film entitled Back2Hell, a 3-D flick directed by Richard Driscoll and starring Michael Madsen, Bai Ling (pictured below), Christopher Lee (narrator), Patrick Bergin, Lysette Anthony, Oliver Tobias, Sylvester McCoy, and Robin Askwith.
“Having lost his family to his horrible, muderous brother, George Carney is a writer living on the edge of life – trapped in a coma. In this film, multiple stories merge from his hallucinating mind…but only one can be real.
With his comic sales declining, he is told by his editor (Lysette Anthony) to write a book on black magic based on a diary that she owns belonging to the occultist Aleister Crowley. On his journey, a Vicodin dependent Carney struggles to fathom what is real and as he starts to unlock the dark secrets surrounding the book, he is drawn deeper into a web of lies and fate. Weaving throughout the story are flashbacks of Carneys earlier book “Evil Calls”, and the real time actions of crime fighting comic book hero and Carney’s alter ego, Maverick McMillian (Michael Madsen) who is tracking down the treacherous “Bard”. “The Bard” is also out to seek a vendetta against McMillian by using those in his employ like the Mayor (Patrick Bergin), who has no qualms in killing especially since McMillian murdered his brother. On McMillian’s quest to find “The Bard”, he has the help of Zilia (Bai Ling). She knows much that is happening in the world that is around her, this being either the comic book world or the real world. Both constantly challenge CarneyÕs subconscious, and as we delve deeper into each world, reality starts to bleed. McMillian takes to the fight in the last issue of the “Enforcer” comic, and breaks through into the real world, coming face to face with his creator. Meanwhile, Carney delves deeper into the diary of Crowley with the help of Walther (Sylvester McCoy), and comes to find a darker power within it’s pages. With gangsters and crazed Shakespearean obsessive’s attempting to stop the pair in their quests; will they win the day?”
