It looks like Foo Fighters might actually do what acts like KISS have tried for ages now — make a decent rock and roll movie! The alternative rock act have recently unveiled the trailer for their new film, Studio 666, about a demonically-possessed recording studio, and between some solid special effects and a cameo from Slayer’s Kerry King, it looks like this movie could actually deliver on its promise.
As you’ll see in the trailer below, Studio 666 sees Foo Fighters heading to a remote house/recording studio in order to make their tenth record. Unfortunately, while Dave Grohl loves the acoustics of the place, he gets hit with some serious writer’s block, and finds himself overwhelmed by his work…until, of course, a series of shark-toothed demons infiltrate the dwelling and possess him. Suddenly, Dave is a black-eyed slavedriver, whose discovery of a new musical note is perhaps overshadowed by his desire to fly, murder his bandmates, and, from the looks of things, bring about the second coming of the Devil.

Of course, along the way, the guys are surrounded by cameos from famous friends, including Lionel Richie, Curb Your Enthusiasm‘s Jeff Garlin, and of course Slayer guitarist Kerry King as their sound tech. Even if the movie is bad — and hey, this is Hollywood, there’s always a chance the movie is a broiled turd — at least it has a high enough budget that it should be pretty entertaining to watch. I mean, did you see that Lemmy vampire movie? What an astoundingly unentertaining shitshow that was.
Take a look at the first trailer for Studio 666 below:
Studio 666 comes out in theaters on February 25th, with tickets already available for preorder. Check out the full poster for the movie below, which honestly doesn’t do this trailer justice.
