Legendary rock dads Foo Fighters have made a horror comedy film called Studio 666, due for release next February.
“Hilarious gore that fucking ROCKS”: This is how Dave Grohl describes Foo Fighters’ latest project, Studio 666, a feature-length slasher/comedy film. The Foos set out to capture the magic of their favourite rock and roll movies, but with a laughably gore-y twist.
There is something so perfectly fitting about a horror/comedy/band film starring mega rockstars, that, as crazy as this whole thing is, it almost feels like it already exists.
Foo Fighters have managed to keep this project a pretty tight secret for a couple of years, but have finally let the cat out of the bag and announced a February 25th release date. Get ready to scream, laugh, and rock out.
Based on a story from the weird and wonderful brain of frontman Dave Grohl, the film follows the Foo Fighters (who will all star as themselves) as they settle in to record their 10th album at an Encino mansion; a rock and roll house of horror drenched in bloody history.
Something evil is a-brewing in the house, where blood, gore, and playful scares are sure to follow.

Directed by BJ McDonnell who’s also done Hatchet III and Slayer: The Repentless Killogy, the film will not only star the legendary rock band, but will also feature the likes of Jenna Ortega, Will Forte, Leslie Grossman, Whitney Cummings, and Jeff Garlin.
Though he hasn’t been announced as part of the flick, we wouldn’t be surprised if Jack Black showed up too. He owes Grohl a cameo or two, anyway.
Filmed at the same house that the band recorded their actual 10th studio album, Medicine at Midnight, Grohl claims he always knew it was haunted. This is going to be one wild ride.
