Markiplier teases gruesome details for submarine horror Iron Lung movie adaptation

Markiplier's upcoming horror movie sounds like it could be very gruesome, based on a new teaser.

Mark Edward Fischbach, better known online as Markiplier, appears to have dropped a new teaser for his upcoming horror film, Iron Lung, which was first announced back in April.

With over 35 million subscribers at the time of writing, Markiplier is quite easily one of the most prominent gaming YouTubers of all time. Having been on the platform since 2012, he’s produced thousands of videos about a plethora of games, but he’s arguably best known for his horror game content - it’s safe to say that the Five Nights at Freddy’s franchise wouldn’t be what it is without his influence.

Take a look at this real-life recreation of Five Nights at Freddy’s 4 below.

With that in mind, it makes sense that the YouTuber has chosen to go down the horror route for his upcoming film, which is an adaptation of the 2022 indie horror title Iron Lung. The game puts players into the shoes of a convict who must navigate through an ocean of blood in a submarine after an apocalyptic event causes all known habitable planets to vanish. Markiplier will not only be directing the film, but he’ll also be starring in it alongside actress Caroline Kaplan (The Plot Against America).

As Dexerto reports, the YouTuber tweeted yesterday: “What’s the record for most blood in a horror movie?” We can only assume that he’s teasing that his film might be able to take the record, and that honestly wouldn’t be surprising at all given the game’s setting.

Right now, it's not known exactly when the film adaptation is set to release, but the game itself has seen a surge in sales lately following the tragic events of the Titanic submersible. Iron Lung creator David Szymansk previously responded to the increase in sales, and simply said: “This feels so wrong.”
