A Horny Christian Slater Coming to Your Home May 8th


Talk about false advertising. Back in February I reviewed the horror, Playback, which I was initially excited about watching due to star, Christian Slater. My review (which you can read here) wasn't exactly a positive one, mostly due to my frustration over a lack of Slater. Now, the "found-footage"-style horror is coming to DVD on May 8th and the box cover would have you to believe that the sexy Mr. Slater has a big part in the film. HE DOESN'T.

Although I had a lot of anger toward the film and it's God-awful lap dance scene from hell (PLEASE JUST HAVE SEX WITH CHRISTIAN SLATER...oh wait, you're not going to? BONER DOWN), I suggested that horror lovers give the movie a chance once it comes to DVD--just don't have any high expectations.

The movie isn't completely original but I found it bearable to watch, until my favorite character was killed (spoiler alert? who cares). Magnet released a statement detailing the films upcoming DVD release, saying, "On May 8th get ready to venture to your voyeuristic side when Magnolia Home Entertainment releases Playback under the Magnet Label on Blu-ray and DVD. Based on the prequel novella, “Playback: Light and Shadow,” the “original and entertaining piece” (Gashe.com) features Christian Slater (Bobby, Very Bad Things), Johnny Pacar (Wild Child, Discovery Kids’ “Flight 29 Down), Toby Hemingway (Black Swan, Feast of Love), and Amber Childers (“All My Children”).

Hmmm, really? The only acting credit they had for Slater was Very Bad Things? How about HEATHERS or PUMP UP THE VOLUME, BROKEN ARROW, HARD RAIN....UNTAMED FRIGGIN HEART? Oh, here I go again, ranting on about that beautiful man with those amazing brows (I'm not crazy--I swear). It just really angers me that even the press release states Christian Slater first, as if he's the main star of the film, when he only appears in about two scenes!

Anyway, if you care, and you probably don't, the film will hit shelves on DVD and Blu-ray May 8th. What did you think of Playback?
