Sundance 2012: Anchor Bay Acquires NOTHING TO FEAR From Rocker Slash

Anchor Bay has picked up the rights to horror  film NOTHING TO FEAR produced by Slasher Films, yeah the guitar rocker dude.Nothing To Fear is based on an actual town in Kansas, which, according to legend, is one of the seven gateways to Hell. 

Anthony Leonardi III is on board to direct. He's been the lead creature artist and storyboard artist for Constantine, Pirates Of The Caribbean 3, Rango and the upcoming 47 Ronin. Slash will be co-producing the score of the movie.

From Kevin Kasha, EVP Acquisitions and Co-Productions at Anchor Bay Films;
“Anchor Bay is thrilled to be working with the Slasher Films team. We knew we wanted to work with Slash when he announced the formation of the label back in September at Toronto, and after having read this script, we are even more excited.”
Slash finished with this;
“Anthony Leonardi’s vision of this story is exceptionally unnerving and dark. It will keep you totally engaged from the first second of the film to the last. It’s guaranteed to scare the hell out of you.” 
The film focuses on a family whose journey toward 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.
