Slipknot's Corey Taylor and Shawn M. Crahan Launch Production Company; Taylor Explains

There's always been a connection between horror flicks and heavy metal, so it comes as sort of a surprise that it's taken Corey Taylor and Shawn M. Crahan of Slipknot this long to start a Living Breathing Films, a film and television production company aimed at creating "psychological dramas."

The duo joins Rob Zombie at the front of the metal/cinema pack. Zombie finally has started opening up about his upcoming film, Lords of Salem, and reportedly reavealed this weekend that, as an avid Philadelphia Flyers fan, he's writing, producing, and directing a movie about the team during the mid-'70s called Broad Street Bullies, which he is calling a "stranger-than-fiction sports tale."
