Guitar hero Slash produces first horror film
TORONTO Slash may have an appetite for destruction, but bloody carnage? Not so much.
That why the first film from the legendary Guns N Roses guitarist production company
cheap ray bans the upcoming Left to Fear favours jolts of the ominous, cerebral sort over the ever escalating graphic violence that has become de rigueur in modern horror.
not a big gore guy, says the 48 year old Friday in an interview in Toronto, his bountiful curls stuffed under a black hat, with a pair of Ray Ban aviators fixed to his face.
horror movies the element that I love the most is the tension. And that sort of like, the introduction and building up of the tension and release. That probably one of the reasons why gore for gore sake doesn mean anything to me. It unnerving to watch, but it not scary. What scary is that tension of what going to happen next. Slash is certainly knowledgeable about the genre, with an appreciation that long precedes his work on Left to Fear. as long as he can remember, he been exhilarated by spooky material across all formats. Born in England (as Saul Hudson), Slash was raised on a childhood diet of the scarefests churned out by Britain Hammer Films while also acquiring an early appreciation for the writing of Edgar Allan Poe, care of his father, Anthony Hudson, who designed album covers for the likes of Neil Young and Joni Mitchell and whom Slash calls of the most well read people I ever met. it turns out, his mom costume designer Ola Hudson was also a horror aficionado, so when Slash moved Stateside he continued his voracious consumption of all things spine tingling. As he delves into his past of frightening delights, he proves his film buff bona fides by excitedly bringing up such obscure fare as 1970 (Joan Crawford final feature film, about a rampaging troglodyte) and the 1961 curiosity a British Kong ripoff in which a furious ape runs roughshod over London.
