Anchor Bay Films has recently announced that they will be distributing Nothing to Fear, the first flick from Slasher Films. Legendary guitarist Slash started up Slasher Films to produce romantic comedies. No, it's horror movies of course. Nothing to Fear marks the directorial debut for Anthony Leonardi III, based on a script from another feature first-timer, Jonathan W.C. Mills. More after the jump.
The official synopsis: Nothing to Fear 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. Stemming from 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. For decades, television, music, movies, and more have cautiously addressed the town; its horror is so infamous, even Pope John Paul II refused to fly over its grounds. Nothing to Fear finally pulls the folklore to the forefront and reveals the unsettling fact and fiction rumbling beneath the surface.
