Iron Lung: Trailer Talk

When this year’s horror film ‘Talk To Me’ was released, it immediately became a huge success, both financially and commercially. With this came the reveal that the creators of the Youtube channel RackaRacka were behind it. But they aren’t the only Youtuber releasing a horror film this year.

‘Iron Lung’ is an adaptation of the 2022 game of the same name and is written, directed by and starring Mark Fischbach, a.k.a Markiplier on Youtube. It follows a convict as he explores the blood oceans of a desolate moon in an isolated, damp submarine, which will lead to their freedom. 



While the trailer is short, it wastes no time in making its mark in the video game-to-film genre. The trailer is narrated while the main character slowly rises from the ocean of blood that he’ll come to explore. It’s a very striking image that demands your attention, and the narration featured is directly from the game’s opening sequence.

But the sound design and the ambience of the trailer gives viewers an idea of how creepy and mysterious the film will be. While I want the film to be eerie or creepy, it’s the sound design that will, in my opinion, make or break the film. With a setting such as a submarine, it’s extremely difficult to gage someone’s surroundings but then adding in this unfamiliar territory will mean that strange and unknown sounds can be implemented. 

The game’s creator David Szymanski is also involved in the film’s development, meaning care and respect for the source material will be taken into consideration. And, with Markiplier’s experience with creating ‘create your own adventure’ films for his own channel, he is very well versed in filmmaking and what goes into it.

So not only am I excited for this, but I also have faith that this will be a fantastic, and creepy, adaptation of the indie game. The question remains though: will this film take the record for the most amount of fake blood used on screen?
