Playback Plot Synopsis:

When a group of high school students dig into their town's infamous past they unwittingly unlock an Evil that corrupts and destroys them. Possessing its victims through video playback and using them for malevolent purposes, it closes in on one specific soul, threatening to expose the town's deepest, darkest secret.

Playback (2012) Review

Julian sets out to reenact the town’s gruesome Harlan Diehl family murders for a school project. He asks the social outcast Quinn to assist with video equipment and research. This is no prob for Quinn to borrow. Quinn watches the original footage and the evil spirit of the deceased killer enters his body like a demon. The evil entity destroys anyone in its path.

I thought the horror movie was okay and had a decent plot. I especially loved the part when Christian Slater died. That alone should warrant you to watch the film. They threw in some old lore about photographs stealing the soul and a man who found out how to do it for himself.
