Foo Fighters’ new feature-length film STUDIO 666 is coming to cinemas in the UK and Ireland next month. It is also set to have a global release on the same date for the viewers to have a first, one kind horror-comedy band experience in a steeped history.
Directed by BJ McDonnell, the fresh and new”horror-comedy” movie will follow Dave Grohl and co. as they move into a mansion in Encino, California that is set in grisly rock and roll history to record a new album.
Once they arrive, however, frontman Grohl has said that he finds himself wrestling with supernatural forces that threaten both the fulfilment of the album and the lives of the band.
For a long time, we have also known that Dave Grohl and the Foo Fighters have worked on the horror-comedy movie Studio 666 but had to wait and learn when they will bring the combo of scares and laughs to the UK. But the good news for fans across the world is that it will now arrive on 25 February, the same day as the US release date.

Foo Fighters’ comedy-horror film Studio 666 will be released in cinemas across the UK and Ireland on February 25 via Sony Pictures.
The film sees Grohl and his bandmates grapple with supernatural forces inside an Encino, California mansion, and this is the same mansion where Foo Fighters have recorded their tenth studio album, Medicine At Midnight – later discovering the linked bizarre happenings to the house’s former residents, the band Dream Window. The dark forces unleashed hereafter threaten the album’s completion and the Foo Fighters’ lives.
Talking about the film last year, Dave Grohl told MOJO, “There’s no other band stupid enough to do this. It’s insane.”
“Yep… we went and made a big, loud, bloody horror movie,” Grohl says. “Because… why the hell not? After keeping Studio 666 our dirty little secret for years, we’re extremely excited to bring it to you guys for a full-on theatrical release. This movie was meant for the big screen. We hope you have as much fun watching it as we all did while making it.”
Director BJ McDonnell has remarked: “Studio 666 is a perfect combination of everything I love. Rock, horror, and comedy are all tied together in a thrilling activity movie. I am so excited to have teamed up with the Foo Fighters to create a very old-school “Band” movie. It has been several years since we’ve seen something like The Beatles’ Help!, The Monkees’ Head or KISS will meet the Phantom of the Park. I am so delighted for the audiences of film and music to come together and enjoy our film.”
“Be ready to laugh, scream, and headbang in your popcorn,” added Grohl.
