Even though he's still on the road behind last fall's "World On Fire" album, Slash has not given up his second career as a horror film producer. According to The Pulse Of Radio, the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame guitarist told Billboard that his company Slasher Films' next project should be out by the end of 2015. He explained, "I’m into bringing back the psychological, the super scary. Especially the things you can’t see going on — character-driven, plot-driven kinda things."
Slash's next movie will follow up 2013's "Nothing Left To Fear", which marked his debut as a producer. He told The Pulse Of Radio at the time how it compared to making records. "Producing a film is definitely more complex," he said. "It's a slow process, raising money is very difficult, but I mean, I really enjoyed it, a) because I have such a passion for what it is that I want to do in film, and I love being involved in the process of development, and finding the right people, getting all the right components together to hopefully make a great movie, you know."
Slash also helped oversee a new horror-themed maze at Universal Studios and will appear at METALLICA guitarist Kirk Hammett 's second annual Fear FestEvil horror gathering in April.
Slash will tour Japan, Australia, New Zealand and South America for the next two months before returning to the U.S. for a handful of festivals.
