Brittany Curran Revealed In Backmask
Nispel's new horror now shooting

Brittany Curran Revealed In Backmask

Retreating to a small indie after last year's largely disappointing Conan, Marcus Nispel started shooting Backmask last week. And the star? Brittany Curran will be doing the screaming.

Curran's best-known for her TV work on TNT's Men Of A Certain Age, but she's not a stranger to horror either: she had a role in The Uninvited, and just finished shooting Captured. Here, she's part of a gang of teens who play a record backwards (older readers will recall these items as an elderly music format from ye olden days) and release an evil spirit that posesses them one-by-one. It's Rob Halford! We jest.

Nispel, of course, previously made the Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake and the 2009 Friday The 13th instalment, so this won't be the first time he's slashed up some teenagers. Curran may want to keep in favour with him, since he'll next be looking for a feisty female lead to pay Cassie Hack in his adaptation of the Hack/Slash comics.

Steven Schneider (Insidious) is producing, and Backmask also stars Gage Golightly (MTV's Teen Wolf) and Kelly Blatz (the Prom Night remake). Kirsten Elms, who's also worked on the next Texas Chainsaw, wrote the screenplay.

Incidentally, records played backwards are also a thing in Rob Zombie's Lords Of Salem, some new pics of which just went online. It's like 1985 all over again.
