Horror and heavy metal music have always had a connection. Be it Ozzy Osbourne and his religious iconography, or Alice Cooper and his literal decapitations during his live show, the two have always been attached at the hip.
So when Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor announced that he was writing a horror film, no one was really that surprised.
Taylor recently spoke to Kerrang! and said the following:
“I wrote a script for a horror movie that I’m really stoked about, and I just broke the skin on book five, so I’m working on that as well. I’ve got a lot of things going on, but I’m also making sure there’s plenty of time for my family, my marriage and home. God knows, you never know how much time you’re gonna get there.”
He also recently told Rolling Stone that he’s aggressively looking for investors and producers now that the script is done.
No telling what the script is about or where it’s going to go, but it’s probably something that you should keep an eye out for.
