NEWS & PRESS
During the question-and-answer session of the screening, Taylor stated about the experience of making “Fear Clinic”: “As my first movie, I couldn’t ask for better people to work with. [It was] a great cast to work with, great people on set, great producers, great crew. We put our heads down and we made a good movie. It was a short shoot, the weather was garbage and we all caught hepatitis in that way. But we pulled it through and it was cool to see it finally on the big screen.”
“Fear Clinic” stars Robert Englund, best known as Freddy Krueger in “A Nightmare On Elm Street”, as Dr. Andover, a doctor who treats patients afflicted with crippling phobias by inducing hallucinations inside an invention he calls the Fear Chamber.
In the film, which began life in 2009 as a five-episode series for the web site FearNet.com, Taylor plays a clinic employee named Bauer who struggles to keep things under control when all hell breaks loose. The movie centers around one traumatic event that induces phobias in a group of different people.
Asked why SLIPKNOT has nine members, Taylor responded: “It just took that many people to get the noise out of our head. I mean, for us, we wanted to create something that was different, and it was one of those things where we just kept adding members, basically. ‘Cause when I joined, it was only eight. And once we kind of got to the point where we were just missing that one thing, we were able to kind of really realize everything that we wanted to do, musically. We’re one of those bands that we strive so hard to be able to project everything that we do on the album live, and it just took that many members to make that a reality.”
He recently told Blabbermouth, via AltPress, a story that will surely upset smartphone-loving fans. While playing a gig, he noticed a girl constantly on her phone during Slipknot‘s set, so he got as near to her as possible and poured four bottles of water in her direction.
Slipknot are known just as much for their unique masks as they are for their chart-topping music. In a recent interview with Canada’s 97.7 HTZ-FM radio station (listen below), frontman Corey Taylor talked about Slipknot’s masks.
When asked whether Slipknot could be Slipknot without their trademark masks, Taylor responded, “I think in a way we could, but I don’t think we’d want to. I mean, I always think back to when KISS took the makeup off back in the ’80s, and I know why they did it, because they kind of hit a wall and it was time to evolve for them.”
