Watch the trailer for Shudder’s “DEADWAX”

Sound up. Headphones on. Hear death. DEADWAX is coming. Written and Directed by Graham Reznick.

The concept for the show is partially inspired by the Satanic Panic of the late 70’s. During that era, for whatever reason, people became convinced that the devil was lurking everywhere especially in rock music. Backmasking was a term that became widely popular. It referred to“hidden” messages in songs that could be heard if a vinyl record was played backwards on a turntable. One of the most famous cases involved Led Zeppelin’s classic, Stairway to Heaven.

“Hannah Gross (David Fincher‘s Mindhunter) stars as Etta, a woman with a talent for tracking down incredibly-rare records for rich clients. She’ll stop at nothing to get the right product for her paying customers, even if it means doing a bit of B&E.”
