“Backmask” unmasks first plot details and first shot.

Probably everyone heard of the backmasking phenomenon that caused some stirs in the music industry – and maybe even more some religious groups. Well, Marcus Nispel (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and upcoming Conan The Barbarian) will be directing a horror dealing with playing records backwards and the Satanic / subliminal messages obtained through this method. Below is the synopsis and you can have a shot at the first pic. Looks pretty tempting…

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