Directed by Slipknot’s own M.Shawn Crahan, aka ‘Clown’, ‘Day of The Gusano’ documents the band’s first ever visit to Mexico City in December 2015, and features exclusive interviews and behind the scenes footage of Slipknot’s members talking about the band’s long awaited first ever show there and the importance of their fanbase, fondly known as 'maggots' ('gusano' is the Spanish translation).  

 

The movie also chronicles the rabid devotion of their Mexican 'gusano' and details personal stories from some of their fans, all interspersed with footage from Slipknot’s live show at the inaugural Knotfest Mexico. 

 

Talking about the movie, Clown said:

 

"Slipknot still has dreams for itself.  Finally playing Mexico was one of them.  It's been a surreal life of rock and roll for Slipknot and the fact that the dreams still go on for us is simply incredible. Thank you.”  

 

Guitarist Jim Root continued:

 

“We had such a great time at Knotfest Mexico... Not only with all the friends and bands that were there, but with the fans and the crowd we had to document it with.  Now we get to share it with the world.”
