The Foo Fighters have shared a new trailer for their upcoming horror movie, Studio 666, which falls on February 25.
The band find themselves facing demons as they move into a completely unhaunted house to begin recording their 10th album. In the clip, frontman Dave Grohl ends up being possessed by demons as he battles Writer Block. Subsequently, Grohl transforms into a writing magician, but his party mates suffer as he attacks and maims them.
Check out the preview below.
As silly as the trailer may sound, the film is influenced by the band’s actual recording experience at an old house in Encino, Calif., Where they had some weird experiences.
“We would come back to the studio the next day and all the guitars would be out of tune,” Grohl said. NME in 2020. “Or the decor we put on the [mixing] table, all had returned to zero. We would open a Pro Tools session and some tracks would be missing. There were pieces that were put there that we didn’t put there. But just like weird open mic noises. Nobody plays an instrument or anything like that, just an open mic recording a piece.
Directed by BJ McDonnell and written by Grohl, Jeff Buhler and Rebecca Hughes, Studio 666 opens in theaters February 25. Find tickets here.
