Synopsis: Co-written by Hall and Aaron Drane, the film is based on the critically acclaimed and fan favorite 2009 FEARnet.com series. When trauma-induced phobias begin to re-emerge in five survivors a year after their horrifying tragedy, they return to the "Fear Clinic", hoping to find the answers they need to get cured.
Dr. Andover (Englund), a fear doctor who runs the clinic, uses his "Fear Chamber" to animate their fears in the form of terrifying hallucinations. However, the good doctor soon begins to suspect that something more sinister may be at work, something that yearns to be more than just a hallucination…
Taylor told The Pulse Of Radio what it was like to work with a horror icon like Englund. "One of the coolest dudes I've ever met," he said. "You know, we were sitting in the makeup trailer and he's telling me stories from the '80s of being at the Rainbow with GUNS N' ROSES and I'm like, 'Please tell me more!' You know? Sweetest dude I've ever met, super fun, super awesome and we had a really good time like making that stuff. And I had a handful of scenes with him and I, I had a really good time."
Taylor said that his first time acting in a film was a great experience. "I really kind of lucked out because the scenes that I had with Robert, we'd be talking eye lines and 'you should react like this' and 'you should, you know, kind of do this and that,'" he said. "And Rob Hall, the director, I mean he was very, very specific about what he wanted to see and what he wanted to capture, but at the same time very loose. He was like, 'Make it feel normal.' And the cast was great, so it was very cool."
Taylor revealed that METALLICA bassist Robert Trujillo was originally up for the part and recommended Taylor when he had to turn it down due to METALLICA's touring commitments.
