We already have a tease of Studio 666, the next horror film born from the mind of Foo fighters founder Dave Grohl. But it was definitely just an aperitif.
Today, Studio 666 is putting together a full-fledged official trailer that gives us a lot more to chew on, including an unowned Dave Grohl leading the rest of the group to a haunted house / recording studio in Encino, and a heavily possessed Grohl (hopefully) apparently having a barbecue with a member of the group.
Check it out below:
Before we cook, however, let’s start with the house. The Foo Fighters are heading to Encino to record their 10th album, in hopes that a new venue will turn things around. The house, a sprawling mansion, has all the attributes of an evil dwelling – broken dolls hanging from trees, tendrils of vines crawling badly to the side, and a basement with demonic designs that would scare most people off in screaming.
The house, however, also has killer acoustics. This is how the Foo Fighters set up their gear, while Grohl faces off against a few Shiny–writer’s block esque and ends up being possessed and starts murdering people. The trailer contains blood – there’s a moment with a shredder that conjures up scenes from Fargo – but the main thing the clip conveys is that this movie will be demonically funny.
“After decades of ridiculous music videos and many musical documentaries under our belt, it was finally time to take it to the next level… A horror comedy feature film,” said Grohl. Deadline when the movie was first announced. “We wanted to recapture the classic magic of all our favorite rock and roll movies, but with a twist: a hilarious gore that rocks. “
Grohl came up with the idea for the film after the band’s actual experience while recording their 10th album, Medicine at midnight, in the same house as the one used in the film. In another example of life imitating art, Grohl and his bandmates Taylor Hawkins, Nate Mendel, Pat Smear, Chris Shiflett and Rami Jaffee star themselves in the film. Other cast members include Whitney Cummings, Leslie Grossman, Will Forte, Jenna Ortega, and Jeff Garlin.
You can catch Studio 666 when it hits theaters on February 25.
