‘Fear Clinic,’ Featuring Corey Taylor, to Premiere at Screamfest Horror Film Festival
Slipknot and Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor is certainly one of rock's most engaging figures, but how will that translate to the big screen? We'll get a chance to find out on Oct. 22 when the new movie 'Fear Clinic' gets its worldwide premiere at the Screamfest Horror Film Festival in Los Angeles.
Taylor appears in the film as a clinic employee named Bauer who struggles to keep things under control when all hell breaks loose. The film stars Robert Englund, best known to horror fans as Freddy Krueger from the 'Nightmare on Elm Street' film series. Englund initially took on the role of a doctor treating patients with fear-based phobias in a FearNet horror series, and now the series is being adapted into a big screen film.
The Slipknot vocalist told 'Loudwire Nights' host Full Metal Jackie earlier this year that Metallica bassist Robert Trujillo was responsible for the film hook up, as Trujillo had to turn down the role due to touring commitments and suggested Taylor for the part. "It was pretty sweet," said Taylor of his time on the film. "I had always said I wanted to be in a movie and try my hand at it. It was kind of the perfect opportunity. I got to hang out with Robert Englund. It was a fantastic learning experience. I learned a lot just from watching everybody. I really got into it."
Taylor reveals he also grew a mustache for the part so that he could look "extra creepy." He concludes, "I had a super blast with it. You always want to do something you love. I could definitely see myself doing more of that stuff in the future."
As stated, the film will premiere on Oct. 22 and Taylor is expected to be on hand with some fellow cast and crew members for a Q&A session. To learn more about the Screamfest Horror Film Festival, click here.
