Ghosts Seeking Therapy
Of all the horror genres begging for my attention/fun coupons, the ghost category has always been a fav. Not sure why. Sure, I dig giant monsters, werewolves and nature gone wild flicks. But ghosts – friendly or anti-friendly – just seem to put frills in my chills.
So my innards are always happy when a new ghost movie comes down the paranormal pipe, the latest being Backtrack, featuring of – get this – ghosts of dead people! I’m gasping as we speak.
Here’s what we’re being told about Backtrack: “Psychologist Peter Bowers’ life is thrown into turmoil when he discovers that his patients are the ghosts of people who all died in an accident twenty years ago. Afraid of losing his mind, Peter returns to his home town where he uncovers a terrifying truth which only he can put right.”
I could help him if he wants. I have years of dealing with spirits. Heck, I had an entire bottle of spirits last night. So yeah, you could say I’m an expert of some sort.
Backtrack is described as a “spine-chilling supernatural thriller in the vein of The Sixth Sense and What Lies Beneath.” No specific release date yet, but the movie’s website is saying sometime in 2015. It’s mid-September as of this digital posting, so they better get to ghostin’.
Note of some noteworthiness: This Backtrack should not be confused with 2014’s Backtrack (aka, Backtrack: Nazi Regression). A psychological thriller, Backtrack: Nazi Regression features Nazis. Didn’t see that coming.
Also, avoid getting wires crossed with 1969’s Backtrack. That one features cowboys. Ghosts are way more scarier than cowboys. Unless it’s a ghost cowboy coming back from the dead to make you stain your saddle.
