SLASH Talks To Actor CLIFTON COLLINS JR. About ‘The Hell Within’ Movie
Actor Clifton Collins Jr. recently sat down with Slash to talk about Slash’s upcoming horror movie “The Hell Within”. The film will be directed by Dennison Ramalho and written by Jeff Buhler. It will be produced by Slash under his SlashFiction banner, in partnership with Benito Mueller and Wolfgang Mueller of Barry Films.
Asked whether it’s hard to produce a movie while he is touring and keep on top of what needs to be done, Slash said: “Well, let me tell you, my first movie experience was harrowing enough. For me to be sitting here promoting another one, you’d probably think I was crazy. I loved the process, but it hurt a lot making that movie, because so many things went wrong and there were so many things I didn’t know about, being the new guy, that I didn’t approach the way that I would normally approach. Just because being the first time at it — you know what I mean? Sometimes you sort of keep your mouth shut and watch what other people do, which I never do. But one of the issues, when we were dealing with the financing with that movie was very problematic, and it kept pushing the production date back. I’d set aside a window before the tour started, to be able to do the whole production and post-production and be able to go to work. It ended up overlapping with my touring schedule. So it’s really, really important to be there, obviously. That was one of the issues I had with ‘Nothing Left To Fear’, so this time around, I’m not touring after. The reason we’re doing it in January — we were going to do it in August but I start touring in September. If anything happens, I don’t want that to happen again, so I’m off the road in December.”
“The Hell Within” follows a woman from New York on a quest into the heart of the Brazilian jungle to save a missing girl, only to discover that the child was just the beginning.
“The Hell Within” will be released in Barco Escape, a multi-screen, panoramic movie format from Barco, a manufacturer of digital cinema technology. Slash called Barco Escape “a game changer,” adding, “It’s totally immersive and brings the movie going experience to a whole new level.”
