Slash from Guns n Roses is getting involved with the movie industry by starting up his own Horror Film company called Slasher Films. The company will produce contemporary horror fare with a nod to the thrillers of the ’70s and ’80s.
Their first venture will be the horror/thriller “Nothing to Fear”.
Deadline reports a plot synopsis for Nothing to Fear that definitely falls in line with the studio’s old school aspirations. It follows a young family that tries to start over in a small town in rural Kansas, only to be tormented by “an ancient demon with an insatiable blood lust”. The film’s script, by Jonathan W.C. Mills, is set and ready to go into production early next year.
Future screenplay developments for Slasher Films will be financed by Scout Productions, who will also oversee production on the films. Previously, Scout has backed films such asTranssiberian, Session 9 and Fog of War, as well as the TV series Queer Eye for the Straight Guy.
Slash had to say:
“I’ve always been a huge horror fan and creating films that take you back to the days where horror movies actually scared the hell out of you is something I’ve always wanted to do. My audience is made up of young, edgy, discerning consumers, with an appetite for quality and a hint of anarchy.”
I am always a fan of new horror movies. Let’s hope Slash does this right.
