Foo Fighters have shared the first sneak peek from their upcoming feature-length horror movie, Studio 666.
The 40-second teaser follows the Foos move into a studio mansion where they start recording before all manner of creepy chaos breaks out. There’s demonic-looking Grohl, ghosts, ghouls and monsters – all the vital ingredients of a horror classic. Watch below.

Studio 666 is set for release next year and stars the full Foo’s lineup – Grohl, Taylor Hawkins, Nate Mendel, Pat Smear, Chris Shiflett and Rami Jaffee – alongside Whitney Cummings, Leslie Grossman, Jenna Ortega and more.
According to a press release, the movie will find the Foo’s Fighters trying to record a new album at a Californian mansion “steeped in grisly rock and roll history”. However, once there, Grohl and co find themselves “finds himself grappling with supernatural forces that threaten both the completion of the album and the lives of the band” instead.
Grohl said in a statement: “After decades of ridiculous music videos and numerous music documentaries under our collective belts, it was finally time to take it to the next level… A full-length feature horror-comedy film. Like most things Foo, STUDIO 666 began with a far fetched idea that blossomed into something bigger than we ever imagined possible.”
“Filmed at the same house where we recorded our latest album Medicine at Midnight (told you that place was haunted!), we wanted to recapture the classic magic that all of our favourite rock and roll movies had, but with a twist: hilarious gore that fucking ROCKS. And now, with the help of Tom Ortenberg and the team at Open Road Films, we can finally let this cat out of the bag after keeping it our best-kept secret for two years. Be ready to laugh, scream, and headbang in your popcorn. STUDIO 666 will fuck you up.”
Last week, Dave Grohl nearly broke the internet with the first instalment of his Hanukkah Sessions that saw he and producer/multi-instrumentalist Greg Kurstin, share a metal-inspired take on Lisa Loeb’s saccharine pop hit Stay. See below.
