Guitar legend Slash will release the first horror movie on his new production company, Slasher Films, in October.
Nothing to Fear was directed by Anthony Leonardi III, and will appear in selected theaters across the U.S. on October 4. It’s based on a real town in Kansas which, according to legend, is one of the seven gateways to hell.
“It’s [a] really good production team, the special effects people are great, the cast is great, the story's great - everything's great about it," Slash has told told the Pulse of Radio. “And it will be interesting to see where this particular one, how it comes out and where it goes, ‘cause we’re planning on doing two a year.”
The movie is the first in a series of horror flicks that Slash plans to produce. Another is called Wake the Dead, based on a graphic novel about a college student. Slash describes it as “basically a modern, young Frankenstein story about a brilliant college student who’s discovered how to animate dead tissue — but he’s a teenager so he goes overboard.”
Slash has been working on the movies for the last two years. He told Inside Movies that there are “four really great scripts” and that his Slasher Films company will “go into production with one right after another.”
