Update on Slash’s Nothing to Fear

Slash spoke recently with Fuse TV about the upcoming "Nothing to Fear", which he is producing. The film is about a family whose journey towards a better life in a small town is savagely derailed by a charismatic but emotionally conflicted man of the cloth.

Based on folklore surrounding the actual town of Stull, Kansas, generations of residents and outsiders alike have proclaimed Stull to be one of the seven known gateways to Hell, where once a year, the Devil will rise from the town’s modest graveyard to walk the Earth. Nothing to Fear finally pulls the folklore to the forefront and reveals the unsettling fact and fiction rumbling beneath the surface

. In the interview, Slash described the film as a "very original, demon based" movie, which is "more character and story driven." Anne Heche, Rebekah Brandes, James Tupper, Willa Holland, Rafi Gavron and Jennifer Stone star. Anchor Bay will distribute this film , which is currently in production.
