Marcus Nispel's Exeter acquired by DirecTV, will be released this summer

Finally, this sucker is getting a proper release. Viva Pictures and DIRECTV announced today that they have acquired U.S. rights to EXETER, a feature film from the director of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Friday the 13th and the producers of Paranormal Activity and Insidious. The film will debut exclusively on DIRECTV on July 2 followed by a theatrical release by Viva Pictures later this year.

EXETER formerly known as BACKMASK, has been a long time coming; the project was first announced in May 2011! Better late than never, I suppose.

After an all-night party at an abandoned asylum known for its horrific treatment of its patients, a group of ordinary teens decide to tinker with the occult, leading to a possession, a paranormal mystery and into a bloody nightmare that no one could predict.

EXETER was directed by Marcus Nispel and written by Kirsten McCallion. The film was executive produced by Jason Blum (who else?) and Steven Schneider.
