Iron Lung is a claustrophobic science fiction horror film created by YouTube star Mark Fischbach (also known as Markiplier to his tens of millions of internet followers). When Fischbach first started uploading videos to YouTube in 2012, he rapidly found success with walkthroughs of popular video game brands like Five Nights at Freddy’s, which is also getting an adaptation this year.
In 2022, Fischbach shared a video of himself playing the terrifying VR game Iron Lung. As of April 2023, it was stated that Fischbach would direct and star in a film adaptation of the game. All the information we have about Iron Lung has been compiled here at Collider. Read on to learn what we know so far about this adaptation of a terrifying video game.
Is There a Trailer for ‘Iron Lung’?
On April 21, 2023, Iron Lung director Mark Fischbach posted a teaser trailer for the film on his official YouTube page. The video has surpassed several million views in the short time since its publication, a tribute to the tremendous quantity of people anxious to see this movie brought to life. The minute-long teaser trailer successfully creates an atmosphere of palpable fear and confinement.
The Iron Lung’s plunge into the abyss of blood is our first point of departure. A frightened guy, possibly the convict sent to this mission, uses a muffled two-way radio to relay messages as he descends to the ocean floor.
As the Iron Lung descends to its cruising depth, the convict warns us to be on the lookout for “sparks or flames” due to certain potentially hazardous “irregularities” with the submarine’s controls.
As it gets more and more challenging to comprehend the prisoner’s communications with those responsible for sending him on this trip, the screen cuts to a scene of a small and unmanned control room aboard the submarine. At its deepest point, the Iron Lung loses all radio contact and becomes silent save for the sound of static.
On October 15th, a brand new official trailer for the claustrophobic horror flick Iron Lung was released. The teaser seems horrifying and weird, just what the fans ordered. Watch the teaser in the clip down below, and don’t miss out on anything else!
When and Where Can You Watch ‘Iron Lung’?
Iron Lung’s release date and location are currently unknown. On April 21, 2023, however, game designer David Szymanski announced on Twitter that the film would indeed be released in theaters.
In addition, the production on Iron Lung appears to be well under way. Since Fischbach also stated that the film would be “coming soon” accompanying the teaser trailer, we may assume that Iron Lung will be released this year. Keep an eye on this page to be the first to hear about any updates.
What Is the ‘Iron Lung’ Game About?
The terrifying events of Iron Lung are taken from David Szymanski’s interactive horror game of the same name. The game came out on March 10, 2022, and follows an anonymous felon who is exiled to a bleak moon to explore an ocean of blood and collect resources for the survival of humanity.
Players assume the role of the convict and use the submarine’s navigational equipment to steer the vessel during tense gameplay. Isolated in the Iron Lung, the player must expose the ocean’s perils with the use of the submarine’s camera.
What Is ‘Iron Lung’ About?
The film’s plot is currently being kept secret. However, based on the assumption from the video game that the movie is based on, below is a small idea of what you may expect from this claustrophobic fear fest.
In the far future depicted in Iron Lung, a horrific event known as the “Quiet Rapture” has wiped away all inhabited planets in the universe. As a result of this catastrophe, the last of humanity’s descendants are now isolated in space stations and starships, fighting for their own survival.
The Consolidation of Iron is a government that thinks it has uncovered the key to human survival: a barren moon where a massive ocean of blood is said to provide essential resources. The COI chooses a convicted criminal to travel to the moon alone.
The door to the submarine, which has been dubbed the “Iron Lung,” is welded shut, and the inmate’s means of contact begin to fail as they descend. The convict begins to think that he is nothing more than a pawn in a game of power and control as he is thrown deep into the ocean of blood with only the tight submarine protecting him from the unknown perils that surround him.
