Rocker Gene Simmons Sets Sites on Producing Horror Films
In a recent appearance on the podcast, Talk Is Jericho with Chris Jericho, KISS frontman Gene Simmons noted that one of his newest ventures will include producing a series of horror films. Said Simmons:
“I have a film fund and we’re starting the first of four right away. The first one is DEVIL’S TRIANGLE and it starts shooting [in] May.”
No word yet on a cast or a plot summary. Simmons went on tell tell Jericho his favorite kinds of horror films:
“I don’t like slasher things. It’s too easy to take a knife and open up a body and see guts. So what? I much prefer if it’s a psychological horror, then it’s like PSYCHO. If you ever see PSYCHO, you never actually see a knife entering a body and there are no monsters, but it’s all psychological horror cause you’re always scared to death.”
Simmons also mentioned INSIDIOUS as one of his favorite psychological thrillers.
Simmons also noted that he prefers fantasy and said one of his favorite books is Stranger in a Strange Land and loves the theme of the intricacies of humanity and mortality in the film DEATH TAKES A HOLIDAY.
