Retreating to a small indie after last year's largely disappointing Conan, Marcus Nispel started shooting Backmask last week. And the star? Brittany Curran will be doing the screaming.Curran's best-known for her TV work on TNT's Men Of A Certain Age, but she's not a stranger to horror either: she had a role in The Uninvited, and just finished shooting Captured. Here, she's part of a gang of teens who play a record backwards (older readers will recall these items as an elderly music format from ye olden days) and release an evil spirit that posesses them one-by-one. It's Rob Halford! We jest.Nispel, of course, previously made the Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake and the 2009 Friday The 13th instalment, so this won't be the first time he's slashed up some teenagers. Curran may want to keep in favour with him, since he'll next be looking for a feisty female lead »
We have the first plot synopsis, official photos, and some behind-the-scenes images from Captured. The movie recently wrapped up filming and deals with an escaped convict who goes after members of a rock band. Currently in post-production, a 2013 release date is planned. We’ll let readers know when more specific release information becomes available.
Synopsis: “A weekend getaway to shoot a music video turns into a nightmare for a Rock’n Roll band when they become the crazed obsession of an escaped convict. Departing home in an old decrepit van, packed in with all their instruments and dreams, friendships and lives are about to be savaged by an unsuspected betrayal. There are some people you don’t want to piss off during childhood, they might come back. But with a lot more baggage.”
