Slipknot: A Tell All Documentary
0
The Industry Bomb (website) is currently hosting a short trailer for free of the documentary movie called "A Clown Short Of Destiny", spanning a decade (1995-2005) about the true history of Slipknot and the Des Moines, Iowa local music scene. The film centers around countless shocking truths about Slipknot, specifically Shawn "Clown" Crahan, that have been purposely hidden for years. The documentary was made by Chad Calek, who has also directed videos projects for Bleeding Through, Index Case and a short documentary on Taking Back Sunday for AMP Energy Drink. Those that are members of The Industry Bomb can watch this online reality TV show called "Walk the Walk - The Battle To Release A Clown Short of Destiny", which follows the process of releasing the film and the struggles that go along with putting out as film as controversial as this. The first episode, which is funny as hell in my opinion, was shot in Park City, at the film festival, so you get a chance to see the director go there and win the festival as well. An early report from an anonymous insider who caught a preview of the film at the Park City Film Festival described the film as having, "way more dirt that I expected, and alot of the shit Slipknot has pulled is going to leave the biggest of all Slipknot fans with a very sour taste in their mouth". Thanks for the info to SMN.

    misguided money shots? anyway, ive never been a fan of slipknot, and i probably dont have to explain why. but if i were to get into them, what would you suggest?

    maybe they take all the masks off and find they were all caught in a fire or something. anyways grindcore bands scream and stuff and grind is awesome. but then again not for 4 minutes.

    There big secret must be that they are a bunch of faggots. No wonder they called themselves maggots all these years. Haha ,actually I like Slipknot I just couldn't resist.

    Most documentaries are bias, opinionated, cleverly worded, propoganda films. Take Farenheit 9/11, I like Michael Moore and I thought the movie was good(thats not to say everything in it was completely and uderly factual), but he had alot of things in that movie that was right up to the lie of an outright lie, but he didn't cross it. Documentaries like to twist and turn every little detail to its favor. As for the "we are the greatest band in the world" quote that is used in the trailer, that could be taken out of context. For example, what could've been said was "We aren't going around saying 'we are the greatest band in the world'" or something to that effect. Or maybe clown did say that. So what, he's proud of his sucess, you would be too, maybe not in the same way as he is, but he has it, so let him enjoy it. The question the director asks "what has slipknot done to the scene since they've blown up?" is clever language. Ask that question about most bands, and the answer will be none, mostly because innovators come few and far between, that doesn't make the bands that aren't innovators crap, they are just riding the wave that the innovators started. And the fact that the director was from a rival band makes it seem like it will be an hour and a half of he said, she said. My question to that? Who cares?

    I admit Megadeth is awesome but telling Slipknot to jump off of a bridge isn't cool even if you hate them as much as you do, other people still like them
    PT 2 DOOR RULE
    Maybe they'll admit their whole "masks and boiler suits" gimmick was stolen from Mushroomhead. I wonder what horrible secrets they have in their "closets"...

    I wonder what it means when it says it will "leave a sour taste in many mouths". does anyone know when they'll show this documentary?

    well according to www.myspace.com/35mudder it is suppose to hit theaters in 2006 and documents the rise and fall of mudder as well as the intense rivalry between the 2 heaviest bands out of des moines and its pry gonna have somthing about index case since they did emulate mudder for awhile but they rule so who cares, it should be a good watch
    dertjoe
    hmmm im from iowa callek was a member of rival band 35" Mudder i wonder if theres a sour taste left over from that, since mudder went nowhere and slipknot went everywhere

    I bet there all gay Kidding. These things are always over hyped. Like the dark secrets are probably that the clown guy had a drug addiction. Ohh wow that never happens in rock. I wouldnt buy too much into it guys
    .:KrAmJaN:.
    Slipknots fans really annoy me they are extremely overrated but there firts album was ok and this movie seems ok too.
    Kopperhead91
    Maybe theyll admit that there the greatest band ever. im serious. they are awesome this looks interesting although i do know alot about them that even the maggotest of maggots dont know about them
    Demon_acecat
    Wow, they have a lot to live up to, seeing all the buzz they've created with this "Secret" Slipknot rocks all your asses.

    lol did anybody see that video where the guys from Muse totally bash Slipknot? One of the Muse guys puts on one of their masks and like dances around with a sunbrero, it's freaking hilarious. Search for "Muse sit the **** down" on youtube.com. But anyways...DVDs like this always make the band seem really egotistical. And they're usually not terribly interesting.

    You guys are messed, if this metallica doing a movie bout themselves, ud jump on the anti-metallica bandwagon and start calling them sellouts. but wait, they did make a movie and u did call them sell outs. Hypocrites. w/e i wanna see this doc.

    i think they may admit that they purposefully put out bs music, or something that will be a big shock to fans.
