Jonathan Davis' Film Career

Jonathan Davis' Film Career Making his movie debut in 2002 with a short cameo role in Queen of the Damned, KoRn frontman Jonathan Davis has moved up the ranks, playing title rolls as the Devil and a religious serial killer.

JOB

JOB
JOB, a religious new horror flick, is Jonathan Davis' second biggest ever acting role, besides Sin-Jin Smyth.

John Gray, director/co-writer of the religious slasher flick, said: "Casting Jonathan might not appear to be the obvious choice but when you see him in action, you'll completely understand why.

"He is going to bring such a level of talent to it that might just surprise everyone. I hope it makes the film a bit more durable to stand the test of time, and bring a whole new fan base."

Davis, who also has a role in Sin-Jin Smyth, joins a cast comprised of Bill Moseley (The Devil's Recjects), Michael Parť (Bloodrayne), Lee Perkins and Joe Knetter.

"The story centers around the disappearances of several Catholic priests involved with the church's summer camp for young boys," John Gray, the director of upcoming horror flick said. "JOB is a direct killer. An avenging angel... he only kills those who have wronged him.

"No innocent blood will be shed... by the time the end rolls around, you will be rooting for his cause."

  • Sin-Jin Smyth

    Sin-Jin Smyth
    Written and directed by Ethan Dettenmaier, Sin-Jin Smyth stars Jonathan Davis as the title roll as the devil, in his biggest acting roles yet.

    Every Halloween at midnight, the devil simultaneously appears in two places, the high plains of India... and a quiet cemetery in Kansas. On November 2nd "The Day of the Dead" two Federal Marshals report to the town of Shin Bone, Kansas (moments before a tornado warning) to transport a prisoner with no past and no identity. He is known simply as... Sin-Jin Smyth!

    Davis told The Rock Radio online about his character and what the film is about: "It's a film that I was asked to play the title character, Sin-Jin Smyth.

    "It's a movie about the Devil, he appears simultaneously in two different places on Halloween, and basically the movie is these two guys transport me from a prison to another prison, and they don't know that I'm the Devil. It's a horror film, it's pretty cool. You'll enjoy it, it's me being the Devil."
