The name Erebus comes from the Greek God “representing the personification of darkness.”

Many famous musicians have gone into the movie business; although, usually in front of the camera. These have included Mark Wahlberg, Johnny Cash and of course Frank Sinatra. George Harrison, however, did become a movie producer having worked on the early Monty Python films.

Simmons, who was born in Israel, has made attempts at appearing in front of the camera over the years, with a number of television and movie appearances. But acting is clearly not his forte as evidenced from Simmons’ wooden performances.

As for producing, his experience has been limited so far to documentaries and reality programs such as his own “Gene Simmons: Family Jewels.”

So why is he now interested in making horror pictures?

“The horror genre continues to fascinate me as it proves to be endlessly thrilling and engaging for audiences, ” Simmons said in a statement. “I am so thrilled to be working with the masterminds from WWE Studios in launching Erebus Pictures.”

WWE Studios president Michael Luisi said, “Horror films fall into a genre that thrives on genuine passion, and I believe this partnership truly capitalizes on that sentiment and supports our vision. I am confident that Erebus will provide audiences with an unprecedented horror experience.”

The new venture has locked a three-picture co-production deal starting with “Temple, ” which was originally acquired and developed by WWE Studios.

“Temple” is written by Matt Savelloni (“Exile To Babylon”) and will follow a team of highly trained operatives who find themselves trapped inside an isolated military compound after its artificial intelligence is suddenly shut down. While investigating the source of the malfunction, the crew begins to experience strange and horrific phenomena as they attempt to uncover who or what killed the team previously stationed at the compound.
