So apparently Slash doesn’t just play a guitar.
Considered to be one of the most famous guitar players in the world, the former Guns ‘N Roses member has started his own horror movie production company, perfectly titled Slasher Films.
Appearing at Fan Expo Canada in support of his first movie, Nothing Left To Fear, it was clear that the musician wanted to focus on the future and not the past.
Nothing Left To Fear was inspired by the legend of Stull, Kansas. Wendy (Annie Heche), her husband (James Tupper) and their kids have moved to the small town where Dan has been ordained as the new pastor. Things, however, are not as cozy as they seem. The couple’s teenage daughter (Rebeka Brandes) is tortured by gruesome visions that she can’t escape. Her younger sister (Jennifer Stone) has been marked for a depraved ritual. There’s also the fact that deep within the heartland darkness, one of The Seven Gates Of Hell demands the blood of the innocent to unleash the creatures of the damned.
The movie is absolutely terrifying and I have no problems admitting that I had to basically forward it through one-time to know what was coming up next before it happened because I couldn’t take its terrifying nature at first glance.
In addition to the aforementioned stellar cast, the movie also features original music by Slash who co-wrote the score and performed the title track “Nothing Left To Fear” with Myles Kennedy.
At Fan Expo, I had the chance to catch up with Slash and talk about his new career path. He talked about his desire to bring back an older style of the horror genre. He said that Nothing Left To Fear was inspired by Rosemary’s Baby. He also broke down the movie’s plot line and discussed how the talented cast was approached and sold on doing a horror movie. We also chatted about his music and how he has not completely divested himself from it. Check out the video above.
Nothing Left To Fear will be available for purchase on Blu-Ray Combo-Pack and DVD in Canada on Tuesday October 8, 2013.
