Youtuber Markiplier is set to direct and star in a feature film adaptation of the indie horror game Iron Lung. The script for the movie has also been written by Markiplier, and production is already underway. An Iron Lung movie? Sounds interesting.
The video game, created by David Szymanski, received critical acclaim in 2022 when it was listed as one of the Best Indie Horror Video Games You Might’ve Missed by Bloody Disgusting. Luiz H.C. from the same article raved about the game’s ability to create a claustrophobic experience that left players fearing for their lives with only a few inches of metal separating them from a watery grave. The use of obsolete technology to navigate the depths of the ocean only added to the terror. The game’s retro graphics and Doom 64-inspired soundtrack were also highlighted as being particularly impressive.
Caroline Rose Kaplan, known for her role in The Plot Against America, will also be starring in the Iron Lung movie. A teaser trailer for the upcoming film is now available for viewing. Markiplier, whose real name is Mark Fischbach, has made a name for himself as a prominent content creator.
