“Legendary rock band Foo Fighters move into an Encino mansion steeped in grisly rock and roll history to record their much anticipated 10th album.” -IMDB
I have a feeling that if you are going to see a horror-comedy about the Foo Fighters living in a haunted house, then you know what you’re in for. I knew what I was in for and I couldn’t wait for the ride and, let me tell you what, it delivered. Let me clarify…
All I really wanted out of this movie was to see the hilarity of the Foo Fighters, which they’ve shown us for over 20 years through their music videos and interviews. And they brought that, more so than I even would have expected. Their comedic timing was on point and everyone pulled their weight, particularly Dave Grohl who seemed to be having a hell of a time (thank you, thank you) making this movie.
It also brought the exact level of “horror” that I can handle in a movie. I am a self-professed wimp and can’t handle a lot of gore. Luckily, everything in this movie was made to be ridiculous: the blood is clearly corn syrup, the demons are something out of Patrick Swayze’s Ghost, and the jump scares are expected well in advance.
I should mention that I saw this movie after watching the extremely emotional and heart-wrenching Cyrano and The Worst Person in the World, so the levity was needed. But despite that, I thought this was a fun watch that was better than I even expected it to be. So if you’re a Foo Fighter’s fan and are looking for a fun escape from a tough week, then I think Studio 666 is worth the watch!
