CONAN Director Marcus Nispel to Helm BACKMASK

     May 9, 2011


Director Marcus Nispel (the remake of Friday the 13th) will helm the horror flick Backmask as his follow-up to the upcoming 3D remake of Conan the Barbarian.  Deadline reported the story today as an exclusive, but actually the good folks over at Bloody Disgusting had it last week.  And while Deadline said details on the plot are being kept under wraps, BD has a synopsis:

“During a sex, drugs, and rock-fueled party, six small-town teenagers find an old vintage 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.”

Shooting on the film begins July 13th.  The 3D remake of Conan the Barbarian hits theaters on August 19th.
