Slipknot’s Corey Taylor Reunites With Tom Savini for His New Horror Movie

0

In case ya haven’t heard, Corey Taylor is on the cusp of becoming the second member of Slipknot to also become a writer/director, after Clown: he’s written a horror film! The plot is currently unknown to us — or “being kept under wraps,” as they say in the trades — but we do have some new details, thanks to Daily Dead: specifically, that “Taylor’s directorial debut is currently in pre-production, and that both [Tom] Savini as well as his right-hand man, Jason Baker, are thrilled to be teaming up with Taylor for the project.” It was just a month ago that Taylor said he was looking for investors, but if he’s in pre-production, I guess he got that squared away already. Because of course he did. He’s Corey Taylor!

Savini, of course, is the legendary make-up artist and special effects genius behind such classic gore fare as the original Friday the 13th, Dawn of the Dead, and Creepshow, to name but a few. He also designed Corey’s most recent Slipknot mask, which a lot of us find kinda lame. Hopefully his work here will be more up to snuff. (I didn’t mean to make a Slipknot joke just then, but I did and I’ll own it.)

While we wait for more news, remember that Slipknot are on tour even as I type this. Get dates and tickets here.
