With Christian Slater, Ambyr Childers, Toby Hemingway, Johnny Pacar, Julian Miller, Jonathan Keltz
Written & Directed by Michael A. Nickles

What seems like a found footage movie at first opens with a man filming himself in the house where he’d slaughtered his family, attempting to pass an evil soul into a baby. He is killed by police.

Jump to present day, and a group of teenagers want to make a low budget movie re-enacting this, their town’s biggest and most deadly scandal. But, even though the man was killed by the cops, the evil spirit inhabiting him was not. By possessing a TV technician, it plots to be reborn, knocking off various people from teens to cops (Christian Slater playing a perverted corrupt officer).

For what it lacks, Playback at least doesn’t get too tedious or bore the viewer to the point of switching of, but is a case of renting when all the big titles are out...
