If you lock yourself in a scary haunted mansion to record an album, weird things happen. That’s the story behind Studio 666, the new feature-length horror/comedy film from and starring the Foo Fighters.

The project was announced back in early November with some social media teases, and now the film’s full trailer has (finally) debuted. Be warned, this film looks completely absurd, totally ridiculous and endlessly entertaining. There’s plenty of Dave Grohl making goofy facial expressions, earnest odes to rock & roll and more words than you’ve ever heard Pat Smear say out loud.

Take a look:

 

Here’s its official synopsis:

In STUDIO 666, the legendary rock band Foo Fighters move into an Encino mansion steeped in grisly rock and roll 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.

Grohl expanded more 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 favorite 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.”

Said director BJ McDonnell:

“STUDIO 666 is a perfect combination of all things I love. Rock, horror, and comedy all tied together in a very thrilling motion picture. I am so excited to have teamed up with the Foo Fighters to create an old school “Band” movie. It’s been years since we’ve seen something like the Beatles “Help!”, The Monkees “Head”, or “KISS Meets the Phantom of the Park”. Take that 60’s / 70’s old school band film fun, mix it with horror and STUDIO 666 is born! I am so ecstatic for audiences of film and music to come together and enjoy our film.”

Studio 666 — its title a riff on Studio 606, the Foo Fighters’ music space and recording studio in Southern California’s San Fernando Valley, will hit theaters on Feb. 25. For more, visit its official website.
