'Studio 666' official trailer finds demonic Dave Grohl frying up frighteningly funny Foo Fighters
If Dave Grohl invites you to a BBQ, say no.
We’ve already gotten a tease of Studio 666, the upcoming horror film that sprung from the mind of Foo Fighters founder Dave Grohl. But that was definitely just an appetizer.
Today, Studio 666 is grilling up a full-blown official trailer that gives us a whole lot more to chew on, including a non-possessed Dave Grohl dragging the rest of the band to a haunted house/recording studio in Encino, and a very-possessed Grohl (we hope) apparently barbequing a bandmate.
Check it out below:
Before we get cooking, however, let’s start with the house. The Foo Fighters are heading to the Encino locale to record their 10th album, in hopes a new venue will shake things up. The house, a sprawling mansion, has all the trappings of an evil habitation — broken baby dolls hanging from trees, tendrils of vines evilly creeping up the side, and a basement with some demonic drawings that would cause most people to run away screaming.
The house, however, also has killer sound acoustics. And so the Foo Fighters set up their equipment, while Grohl faces some Shining-esque writer’s block and eventually gets possessed and starts murdering folks. The trailer has some gore in it — there’s a moment with a woodchipper that brings 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 numerous music documentaries under our collective belts, it was finally time to take it to the next level… A full length feature horror comedy film,” Grohl told Deadline when the movie was first announced. “We wanted to recapture the classic magic that all of our favorite rock and roll movies had, but with a twist: hilarious gore that f***ing rocks.”
Grohl actually got the idea for the film after the band's real-life experience recording their actual 10th album, Medicine at Midnight, at the same house used in the film. In another instance of life imitating art, Grohl and his bandmates Taylor Hawkins, Nate Mendel, Pat Smear, Chris Shiflett, and Rami Jaffee play themselves in the movie. Other cast members include Whitney Cummings, Leslie Grossman, Will Forte, Jenna Ortega and Jeff Garlin.
You can catch Studio 666 when it rocks its way into theaters on Feb. 25.
