The band comes face to face with demons as they move into a totally not haunted house to start recording their 10th album. In the clip, frontman Dave Grohl ends up getting possessed by demons as he struggles with writer’s block. Afterward, Grohl turns into a writing wiz, but his bandmates suffer in the process as he attacks and mutilates them.
Check out the preview below.
As silly as the trailer seems, the movie is influenced by the band’s real-life recording experience at an old house in Encino, California, where they had some freaky experiences.
“We would come back to the studio the next day and all of the guitars would be detuned,” Grohl told NME back in 2020. “Or the setting we’d put on the [mixing] board, all of them had gone back to zero. We would open up a Pro Tools session and tracks would be missing. There were some tracks that were put on there that we didn’t put on there. But just like weird open mic noises. Nobody playing an instrument or anything like that, just an open mic recording a room.”
Directed by B.J. McDonnell and written by Grohl, Jeff Buhler, and Rebecca Hughes, Studio 666 opens in theatres on February 25th. Find tickets here.
