No one expected Foo Fighters to star in a movie and to top that, a horror-comedy movie. It came as a surprise to everyone when Studio 666 was announced, starring the members of the Grammy-winning Rock band, Foo Fighter’s members, Dave Grohl, Taylor Hawkins, Nate Mendel, Pat Smear, Chris Shiflett, and Rami Jaffee as themselves. I mean -hello?!
Grohl admitted in an interview that he never intended to star in a movie but when he moved into the mansion the movie is shot in, things just clicked and he came up with this backbone story which was then perfected by screenwriter, Jeff Buhler, who also wrote the Pet Cemetery and Rebecca Hughes.
The movie was directed by BJ McDonnell, who did a splendid job in giving us some amazing cinematography, and just to put you on edge & craving for more, John Carpenter is a guest star. Also, he wrote the THEME SONG!
It is opening in theatres on February 25th, 2022 with some more amazing supporting actors like Whitney Cummings from Two Broke Girls, Leslie Grossman from 10 Thing I Hate About You, Will Forte from MacGruber, Jenna Ortega from Stuck in the Middle, and Jeff Garlin from The Goldbergs
The horror-comedy movie follows a band to a mansion in Encino, California, to record their new album which pretty much coincides with what happened in real life for the stars of the show as they went to the same Mansion to record their album, ‘Medicine at Midnight’- but in the movie, they are caught in a fight against the supernatural from the mansions eerie disturbing past.
Dave Grohl in the lead role gets possessed by the demonic supernatural presence in the mansion. Jeopardizing their whole plan to record their 10th album puts everyone’s lives in danger.
Stream it or skip it?
The movie lasts for almost 2 hours and is a treat for all Foo Fighter fans. We get to see a different side of the Rock band.
A horror-comedy seems to be the weirdest of combinations- like pineapple on Pizza. Some dig it, some just hate the idea so much, they never try it. So, Studio 666 might not really amaze you with the story that doesn’t lean too much on either side. But if you are a fan of the Foo Fighters, you’ll love it!
