Slipknot’s unique visual language and visceral performance style is a natural path into horror. Now, Taylor will be making his return to the genre. A new trailer for the Jan. 4 film Rucker showcases the band’s frontman in his upcoming role.
Rucker tells the story of a trucker who is also a serial killer. According to the synopsis, the film will involve a complex plot where the titular Rucker attempts to construct an elaborate and gruesome tribute to his ex-wife.
“For the past 30 years, Rucker the trucker has devoted his life to traveling the road as a mass serial killer,” the synopsis reads. “When Rucker picks up unsuspecting Maggie, she makes him the subject of her trucker documentary. But her life takes a dangerous detour when Rucker recruits her to complete his masterpiece: a connect-the-dots roadmap portrait of his ex-wife comprised of the women he’s killed who resemble her.”
In the new film, Taylor reportedly will play the role of one of Rucker’s friends. The film releases on Jan. 4 via video on demand. Watch the Rucker trailer below.
