Foo Fighters unveils first preview clip of upcoming horror movie


Foo Fighters gave fans the first music video for their upcoming horror film, titled Studio 666.

Viewers at a Foo Fighters concert in Las Vegas last week were the first to see the footage, which has since been posted online.

The teaser video for the comedic horror film shows the band going wild before heading to a haunted studio to record an album. The footage shows what appears to be a possessed Dave Grohl and various ghosts and demons.

Grohl and his band mates – Taylor Hawkins, Nate Mendel, Pat Smear, Chris Shiflett and Rami Jaffee – star in the film alongside Whitney Cummings, Leslie Grossman and Jenna Ortega.

The film sees Foo Fighters moving to a haunted mansion to record an album. There, Grohl “finds himself grappling with supernatural forces that threaten both the completion of the album and the life of the band.

After decades of ridiculous music videos and numerous musical documentaries to our credit, it was finally time to take it to the next level… A horror comedy feature film,“said Grohl.”Like most Foo things, STUDIO 666 started with a wacky idea that turned into something bigger than we ever imagined possible.

Grohl revealed that the film was based on a studio they once worked in that was reportedly haunted.

Shot in the same house where we recorded our last album Medicine at Midnight (I told you this place is haunted!), We wanted to recapture the classic magic of all our favorite rock and roll movies, but with a twist: gore hilarious who fucking ROCKS,” he said. “And now, with the help of Tom Ortenberg and the team at Open Road Films, we can finally get this cat out of the bag after keeping it our best-kept secret for two years. Be prepared to laugh, scream, and head into your popcorn. STUDIO 666 will fuck you up.

Studio 666 director BJ McDonnell describes his film as “a perfect combination of everything I love – rock, horror and comedy, all tied together in one very exciting movie.

I’m so excited to have teamed up with the Foo Fighters to create an old-fashioned ‘group’ movie,” he said. “It’s been years since we’ve seen something like The Beatles ‘Help !, The Monkees’ Head or KISS Meets the Phantom of the Park. Take this fun old school group movie from the 60s / 70s, mix it with horror and STUDIO 666 is born! I am so thrilled that the cinema and music audiences come together and enjoy our film.

Studio 666 opens in US theaters on February 25 of next year. An Irish release has yet to be announced.
