Studio 666 is a R-Rated Foo Fighter Slasher Film!
Studio 666 is the first movie from the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame band Foo Fighters. Somehow this movie was surprisingly shot in secret as no one caught wind of it until a month ago. All the Foo Fighters star in this movie, including Dave Grohl and bandmates Taylor Hawkins, Nate Mendel, Pat Smear, Chris Shiflett, and Rami Jaffee, who all play themselves. They are joined by Whitney Cummings, Leslie Grossman, Will Forte, Jenna Ortega, and Jeff Garlin. In addition, the story is by Grohl himself and is directed by BJ McDonnell.
In Studio 666, Rock & Roll Hall of Famers Foo Fighters move into an Encino mansion steeped in grisly rock history to record their much anticipated 10th album. Once in the house, Dave Grohl finds himself grappling with supernatural forces that threaten both the completion of the album and the lives of the band.
I have always been a big fan of Dave Grohl since his Nirvana days, and he is one of my favorite drummers of all time. So there was no reason why I would not enjoy his charismatic and funny personality, magnified on the big screen. Studio 666 is a fun movie that combines Music, Comedy, and Horror. You would think that an entire band would have poor acting chops, but they hit all the right notes. Surprisingly, the jokes are written well, and the gore and creepiness are at an all-time high. If you are squeamish, then this is your heads up that there is a handful of gnarly kills. However, the movie is stupid fun, showcasing Dave Grohl’s acting ability and versatility. The Foo Fighters may have to leap into the movie industry full time with such a long and impressive music career already cemented.
I give Studio 666 3.5 out of 5 stars. If this film does well enough I can see a sequel happening or maybe a crossover with the boys of Tenacious D.
