Slipknot's Corey Taylor and Shawn Crahan have launched a film production company called Living Breathing Films.

The singer and the percussionist – who is also known as Clown – told Rolling Stone that they were planning on unveiling the company at the Sundance Film Festival, which takes place in Utah from January 19 - 29, and wanted to make flicks that were similar to the band's aesthetic.

Speaking about their big-screen plans, Crahan said:

Our movies are going to be psychological. They're going to affect you. When The Exorcist came out people got up and left after 15 minutes and that turns us on. 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.

Taylor, meanwhile, said that he was eager to work on a project with film-maker Rob Zombie, adding: "Obviously I'd love to do something with Rob [Zombie]. I think that'd be sick for the three of us, being from such a musical background, to put something together that's just fucking crazy and awesome to watch, but at the same time is a little disturbing."

However, the band also revealed that they were fond of feelgood films, too, with Crahan revealing: "I just watched Good Will Hunting a week ago and I actually cried three times in the movie. That's what Robin Williams can do to me – he can make me laugh as a comedian, but as an actor I completely believe him."

In November last year, Taylor revealed that the band's next studio album would be inspired by their former bassist Paul Gray. The frontman said that ]Gray's death of a suspected overdose in June 2010 would make for a "very melancholy" fifth LP.
