Daily Dead conducted an interview with SLIPKNOT and STONE SOUR frontman Corey Taylor after the October 22 world premiere of "Fear Clinic" — the new horror flick which marks Taylor's first featured role in a film — at the Screamfest Horror Film Festival in Hollywood, California. You can now watch the chat below.
Taylor stated about the experience of making "Fear Clinic": "Acting has always been something that I've wanted to do. Obviously, I've dabbled in it a little bit with music videos and everything, and with every music video, when that opportunity arises, I try to push it a little more. But I've wanted to do a full-on acting gig, where it's a character who's not me. So, yeah, I was a little envious of [SLIPKNOT's] Clown [when he landed a role in 'The Devil's Carnival'], because we were both pitched that — I was actually supposed to be in that — and my schedule was such that I couldn't do it. So I was rally bummed, but I was stoked for Clown that he got to do it. So that kind of made me take a look around and go, 'Man, when the right opportunity arises, I'm definitely gonna try and go for it.' So, luckily, I got to do this."
"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.
"Fear Clinic" will be released on Blu-ray and DVD on February 10, 2015.
