Magnet Releasing has acquired U.S. rights to the horror film Playback. The indie distributor plans a launch for the movie on Ultra VOD in February followed by a theatrical release in March.
Christian Slater, Toby Hemingway, Johnny Pacar and Ambyr Childers star in the story of a group of high school students that inadvertently unleashes an evil spirit. Michael Nickles directed.
“Playback is very scary and a lot of fun,” said Magnolia/Magnet president Eamonn Bowles. “We think it will be a hit with horror fans.”
Lawrence Robbins and John M. Bennett of Bennett Robbins Prods. produced the project. Magnet execs Dori Begley, Peter Van Steemberg and Chris Matson negotiated the deal with Nate Bolotin of Celluloid Nightmares.
Magnolia Pictures' genre arm, Magnet has the films Goon, Innkeepers, Outrage and God Bless America forthcoming.
