Slipknot front man Corey Taylor and percussionist/co-founder M. Shawn Crahan have launched a film production company and will be heading to Sundance to see and be seen. "Our movies are going to be psychological," Crahan tells Rolling Stone, like The Exorcist, he hopes. "If I haven't got someone to leave in five minutes for at least one of my films then I'm not doing my job." While the production company is still in its early phases, Crahan says they will have a little something to show at Sundance. "We just made a little film on Sunday and we basically got burlap bags, put them on our heads and then got zip tied and I forced us to walk through thorns. There was no acting cause when Corey screamed, 'Fuck,' he meant fuck because he was getting a thorn slicing across his chest. And that’s what we are; we live our art, we breathe it," he says. Eat your heart out, Little Miss Sunshine.
