Stone Sour and Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor has joined the cast of an upcoming horror film called Fear Clinic. According to Blabbermouth, the movie began life in 2009 as a five-episode series for the website FearNet.com. The series starred Robert Englund, famous for playing Freddy Krueger in A Nightmare On Elm Street, Lucas Till from X-Men: First Class, Danielle Harris of Halloween 4 fame and Kane Hodder, best known for playing Jason in several of the Friday The 13th movies.
Taylor told us a while back that he was more interested in screenwriting than acting:
“I have no aspirations to really get into acting, you know. I mean, it’s something that — I’ve always wanted to write for movies, you know, I’ve always wanted to write a screenplay and I’ve written a couple in the past and what not. But yeah, if it happens, it happens, you know. It’s not something that I pursue.”
- Englund will return in the film to his lead role as Dr. Andover, a fear doctor who treats patients afflicted with crippling phobias by inducing hallucinations inside his exposure therapy invention; The Fear Chamber.
- The series, which focused on a different phobia every episode, reached over five million hits on FearNet.com. It has since been added to On Demand, YouTube and Hulu.
- In the film, Taylor will play a clinic employee named Bauer who struggles to keep things under control when all hell breaks loose. The movie will center around one traumatic event that induces phobias in a group of different people.
- Fear Clinic is currently filming for a Halloween 2014 release.
