The Wagner/Cuban Company’s Magnet Releasing, genre arm of Magnolia Pictures, announced today they have acquired US rights to horror film Playback, directed by Michael Nickles and starring Christian Slater.

Magnet will release Playback through its Ultra VOD program in February, launching the film on all digital VOD platforms prior to its theatrical release in March. The movie is described as follows:

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. “We think it will be a hit with horror fans.”

Lawrence Robbins and John M. Bennett produced under their New York production banner, Bennett Robbins Productions
