The artistic acumen and the inexhaustible source of inspiration are proven in every choice made by a musician.
We already know that many have participated in movies or have borrowed their songs.
But how many of us know that there are several musicians who have written the script or directed a film?
Below, we have collected some films created by musicians of the Rock / Metal music scene.
In 2003, he made his directorial debut in the cult horror film “House of 1000 Corpses”.
The sequel to “The Devil’s Rejects” is considered better than the first.
Following “The Devil’s Rejects”, Rob Zombie is directing, writing, and producing several films.
Remarkable is the remake of the classic “Halloween” in 2007.
Undoubtedly, he is an artist who still influences musical events today.
He is one of those who have been involved in many kinds of art, including visual arts and filmmaking.
The 1978 film “Renaldo and Clara” is signed by him both in direction and in script.
Unfortunately, it was not successful and its screening in the theaters was interrupted.
The long duration of the film (four hours) and its slow plot may have been to blame.
Nick Cave is more than just a musician. His artistic entity is huge.
He is also a writer, actor, and screenwriter.
In 2005 he signed the screenplay for the Australian western “The Proposition” which stars Guy Pearce, Emily Watson, and John Hurt, among others.
He has also written the screenplay for the sequel to the 2000 film Gladiator.
David Byrne, singer and founder of Talking Heads is a talented artist.
In 1986 he signed the direction and screenplay for the cult film “True Stories”.
Byrne himself described his film as “a work with songs based on true stories from tabloid newspapers”.
Among the countless works of Flaming Lips is the movie “Christmas On Mars”.
A Christmas horror/science fiction movie written and directed by Wayne Coyne.
The film was even shot in the yard of his house in Oklahoma!
If you were told that Limp Bizkit singer Fred Durst directed a dramatic film, would you believe it?
And yet he did it with the 2007 film “The Education of Charlie Banks”.
The most impressive thing is that his dramatic film won the storytelling award at the Tribeca Film Festival the same year.
