New horror company Slasher Films which was recently launched by Academy-Award winning producer Michael Williams and Rob Eric (Session 9 The Fog of War) and iconic rocker Slash (Guns N’ Roses Velvet Revolver) has announced that its first film Nothing to Fear will begin principal photography late October in Louisiana. Director Anthony Leonardi III is making his feature debut.   “Our mission at Slasher Films has been to create genre films that defy the genre stereotypes ” says Slash. 
Nothing to Fear is about a family whose journey towards a better life in a small town is savagely derailed by a charismatic but emotionally conflicted man of the cloth. The story is based on the actual town of Stull Kansas which is surrounded by Internet folklore proclaiming the town to be one of the seven gateways to Hell. Upload Films is executive producing and co-financing alongside new film investment company Midlife Crisis Productions.   
 Shaun Redick and Ray Mansfield of Movie Package Company negotiated the financing for the project and will executive produce.  CAA which is representing Slasher Films is helping package the movie and will represent North American rights.  CAA represents filmmaker Anthony Leonardi III and Thomas Haden Church.  Jackie Eckhouse of Sloss Eckhouse LawCo is handling negotiations on behalf of Slasher Films.
