Slash's first effort as a film producer, a horror movie called Nothing Left To Fear, opens in limited release on Friday (October 4th). The movie, directed by Anthony Leonardi III, stars Clancy Brown, Anne Heche, Rebekah Brandes and more in a tale about a pastor and his family who encounter supernatural evil when they move to the town of Stull, Kansas, which is said in real life to sit over a gateway to hell.
Slash told us what it was like to produce his first film and how it compared to making records: "Producing a film is definitely more complex. It's a slow process, raising money is very difficult, but I mean, I really enjoyed it, a) because I have such a passion for what it is that I want to do in film, and I love being involved in the process of development, and finding the right people, getting all the right components together to hopefully make a great movie, you know."
- The ex-Guns N' Roses guitarist also wrote the score and the closing credits song for the film, which hits DVD and Blu-ray next Tuesday (October 8th).
- Nothing Left To Fear was produced under the Slasher Films banner, which Slash launched two years ago with some partners to produce horror movies.
- Slash told Rolling Stone that he is already reading through scripts to find the next project for the company, adding that he wants it to be a "creature feature."
- Slash is also in the midst of writing music for his third solo album, which will follow up last year's Apocalyptic Love.
DID YOU KNOW? Slash says that the scariest movie he's ever seen is the original Night Of The Living Dead. He told Rolling Stone, "Night Of The Living Dead was a very ominous, haunting and brutal movie, and I remember specific scenes that have stayed with me all these years. Since then I'm more fascinated in -- I love creepy stuff. I don't go for psycho movies or people that run around killing each other."
