Movie Review : Playback (2012)

Playback (2012) is a horror/thriller by Michael A. Nickles.

A cop investigates the case of a missing local teen, though he discovers a dark secret that has been unleashed in his town, and an evil spirit that will stop at nothing to find its heir.

Directed by: Michael A. Nickles
Writer:          Michael A. Nickles
Stars:            Christian Slater
                      Ambyr Childers
                      Toby Hemingway

 Actually, the plot labeled in the movies is quite different to the plot in the movie. It was more focused on a group of teenagers who were researching on a family murdered by Harlan Diehl years ago. Anyway, the movie isn't what I had expected. Commonly, it is composed actual footages, possession, obscenity, and killing teenager. It was somehow awful because of its crappy story, effects, and acting. I mean the relationship of the events and scenes were so hazy. Besides that, the scenes where the antagonist can possess its victims through cameras were so lame. It made me say "what kind of movie is this", and lost the feeling of a horror film's environment. The effects were so old school too. You can really discriminate it if you have seen it. On the bright side, it has its own shocks and startles. Overall, the movie was a little bad due to its storyline.
