Magnet Releasing, the genre arm of Magnolia Pictures, recently revealed to Bloody Disgusting that Michael Nickles’ Playback, a frightening horror film featuring Christian Slater, will be available on-demand February 3 and in theaters on March 9.
“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 after acquiring the film earlier last year. “We think it will be a hit with horror fans.”
