Slash Wants to Make Horror Movies Now

Thursday, October 7 by

Play him off, Slash.

So Guns N’ Roses (and Velvet Revolver) guitarist Slash wants to make horror movies now. Okay I guess. He’s teaming with Scout Productions to start Slasher Films. It’s almost like he had to do it because his name is Slash. Deadline, tell us more:

They will produce edgy contemporary horror fare with a nod to the thrillers of the ’70s and ’80s. They’ve set up their first: Nothing to Fear, a horror/thriller that follows a young family as it tries to reinvent itself by moving to a small town in rural Kansas. The family is tormented by an ancient demon with an insatiable blood lust.

Again, okay I guess. Rocker Rob Zombie has already been doing this for a few years now. I doubt Slash is going to come on to the scene and change the world of horror as we know it. Of course he did 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." Has anyone gone into production on a horror movie with the intention of not scaring the hell out of people? I mean except for Katherine Heigl projects.
