A new trailer announcing the digital US release of Alex Lifeson’s 2022 horror film ‘The Breach’ was shared on YouTube almost a week ago. Recently, Rush’s former guitarist shared his opinion about this new trailer on his Instagram and revealed how scared he was while watching it.

Posting a screenshot of the trailer, he claimed the film would be out in the US on July 11 and wrote:

“‘I was so scared when I watched that I’ve only stopped crying now. And that was just the trailer!’ -Alex Lifeson: Professional Scared Guy.”

While Lifeson starred in the film with Natalie Brown and Allan Hawco, Guns N’ Roses’ Slash also contributed to its production. The guitarist took part in ‘The Breach’ as its executive producer and composer.

In 2022, talking to Bad Feeling Magazine about how he got involved in it, Slash said:

“[Rodrigo Gudiño] came to me with this particular [script], which he had adapted from a script by Nick Cutter. And they handed it to Rodrigo and said, ‘Do what you want with this to sort of get it to be really film-worthy.’ And so, he did a lot of tweaking to it, and then showed it to me and said, ‘Would you be interested in getting on board? I’m really thinking about pursuing this and getting this made.’

And so, I was really excited about the opportunity to work with Rodrigo, finally and, and pursue this really unique, cool, horror slash science fiction… It’s a mixture of a lot of different things. So, we developed it from there.”

The movie, which tells the story of John Hawkins encountering a deformed body from a river in Lone Crow, premiered at the 2022 Fantasia International Film Festival. It will see its UK and Ireland release a day before the US one, on July 10.
