Rocker Slash getting into the horror picture game

10.07.2010

Move over Rob Zombie, there's a new appropriate named rocker in town trying to make horror movies. Yup, it's Slash, who has just formed "Slasher Films" (what else). Deadline reports that they're going to be focused on "edgy contemporary horror fare with a nod to the thrillers of the '70s and '80s."

Their first film will be NOTHING TO FEAR, where a family moves to a small town and is tormented by a demon with INSATIABLE BLOODLUST. Rarrrr!

Here's what Slash has to say about why he's taking on this new endeavor.

"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."

Horror movies that actually scare you? A novel idea to be sure. Will young consumers understand the '70s and '80s references? Will their appetite for anarchy allow them to sit in a theater long enough without burning it down? Slash had better star in at least one of these. He kind of looks like a serial killer if you had no idea who he was.

Extra Tidbit: I know he's polarizing, and many of you love him, so in that spirit let me say, I hate, hate, hate, hate Rob Zombie movies.

Rob Zombie

Blows at directing. His movies make you feel dirty for having watched them like you need a shower or something.

The only Rob Zombie movie I've seen is The Devil's Rejects, and it was so awful that I'll never willingly see another one.

If these aren't good, fine, no skin off my nose. But I do like the proposal, and think if done right, awesome.

As for the extra tidbit- Most of Zombie's movies suck balls!

I'm all for making horror movies good again, but am not sure if Slash is the man to do it, but if he has the passion for it, I wish him luck. The statement about him looking like a serial killer was funny because it's true.

the tidbits are usually useless yet interesting little gems.
This tidbit was just useless.

"Useless" in the sense that it's one of our news editors sharing his opinion on something of relevance? Strange, sounds a LOT like what you just did here with your reply... :)

This is the strikeback. I struck back.

how about i phrase it like this: I "hate, hate, hate hate" that extra tidbit


I should also add Tassi is my favorite writer here. so I apologies if i came off jerky.

speaky of 'jerky', Soloist, your Polyana act is getting stale. I'm convinced you're a studio plant.
