Watch snippets of Taylor’s interviews in trailers and teaser videos for In Search Of Darkness below, featuring such quotables from the Slipknot leader as “We didn’t pay for fucking Hamlet, alright?! We paid for horror!” Taylor also enthuses over a pivotal scene in The Thing, and geeks out over Stephen King movie adaptations, namely Pet Sematary and Silver Bullet (which he proclaims “very underrated”).
Taylor notably worked with horror special effects artist Tom Savini (Dawn Of The Dead, Day Of The Dead, Friday The 13th) for his latest fright mask, which initially garnered mixed reactions from fans.
In August, Slipknot released their new album, ‘We Are Not Your Kind’, which became their first Number One album in 18 years. Next year, they will support the album with an arena tour in the UK and Europe.
