SLIPKNOT/STONE SOUR frontman COREY TAYLOR is set to appear in the upcoming feature film Fear Clinic, also starring Robert Englund, Kane Hodder, Danielle Harris and Angelina Armani.
A plot outline reveals: Patients suffering phobias undergo radical therapy in the Fear Chamber that animates their worst fears in the form of terrifying hallucinations.
Fear Clinic will see Corey Taylor in the role of Bauer, one of the employees of the clinic who struggles to keep things under control when all hell breaks loose.
Says Taylor: "Really looking forward to being a part of the Fear Clinic movie with Almost Human and co! And the great Robert Englund! Pinch me!"
Fear Clinic began as a 2009 horror series for FearNet that consisted of five episodes starring up-and-coming talent like Lucas Till (X-Men: First Class) and Kate Nauta (Transporter 2) as well as horror icons Danielle Harris (Halloween 4), Lisa Wilcox (A Nightmare on Elm Street 4) and Kane Hodder (Jason Voorhees). The series and upcoming film stars Robert Englund (Freddy Krueger in the Nightmare on Elm Street franchise) as Dr. Andover, a fear doctor who treats patients afflicted with crippling phobias by inducing hallucinations inside his exposure therapy invention, The Fear Chamber. The series, which focused on a different phobia every episode, received critical acclaim including two 2010 Streamy Awards and reached over five million hits on FearNet.com. It has since been added to On Demand and mainstream channels Youtube and Hulu, making it the most-watched horror web series in history.
The project has been in active development for a feature film, written by Robert Hall and Aaron Drane. The story has seen a shift from the series, however; instead of the episodic nature of the original show, the film will focus on a variety of phobias that all stem from one traumatic event.
