Guitarist has big plans for the genre
Slash is heading to the Sundance Film Festival this weekend to announce the upcoming films on tap in 2011 and beyond for Slasher Films.
Slasher Films is the horror film production company formed by Slash in partnership with Michael Williams and Rob Eric of Scout Productions.
On Sunday, January 23, Slash will hold a press conference and party at the House of Blues in Park City, Utah to discuss the exciting film projects heading for production this year.
Renowned in the music field, Slash has jumped head-first into Slasher Films, adding a producer cap to his extensive entertainment resume.
After searching through hundreds of scripts, Slash, Rob and Michael collectively read and agreed upon a handful of scripts that they’ve now added to their slate.
“We’re looking forward to getting up to Sundance to connect with like-minded directors and writers that share the same passion and nostalgia for quality horror and suspense films that Michael, Rob and I do,” explained Slash in a press release.
Slash, who says he is a huge horror film fan, estimates that the company will produce two to three movies a year.
He said the films will be “really high quality, very character-driven, and insanely scary horror movies. They’re not going to be scary in the sense that you’re waiting for a monster to come out and cut off someone’s arm. They’re going to be psychologically scary and intense. They’ll hearken back to those great movies of the ’60s and ’70s and even way before that.”
The first film under the Slasher banner, tentatively titled “Nothing To Fear”, has yet to surface. Slash told ARTISTdirect that the company has interest from other studios and production companies.
