We'd normally write this off as a crappy retread of Rob Zombie's transition into the genre, but it seems like he actually has some pretty inneresting ideas!
Guns N' Roses guitarist Slash recently announced that he plans to launch his own horror movie production company, which he's calling Slasher Films, and he already has FOUR projects in the works!
Nothing To Fear will reportedly be about the real town of Stull, Kansas, which many believe to be the 'gateway to hell,' while Theorem tells the story of a mathetmatician who discovers the equation for evil. Meanwhile, there's also Wake the Dead will be modern take on the Frankenstein story and focuses on a college student who learns how to animate dead tissue, and The Other Kingdom, which seems like a pretty by-the-books zombie flick!
"What I want to do is bring back character-driven, dramatic, intelligent, humorous horror movies - horror movies that have some depth. Now it's all about the sensationalism and shock value."
We definitely think that if done well, some of those flicks might actually be pretty good! AND scary!
We're looking forward to seeing what you produce, bb!
Nothing's more fun than a good horror flick!
What do U think?? Are U excited for Slash's new production company??
