Dave Grohl confronts the horrors of making a new Foo Fighters album in Studio 666

    1 of 2 2 of 2

      Sometimes rock musicians do a decent job when they try their hand at acting in horror movies.

      Take Deborah Harry's sadomasochistic radio host Nikki Brand in David Cronenberg's 1983 body-horror epic Videodrome. Her wry performance really hit the mark in that twisted flick.

      On the other hand, there's Alice Cooper's role as rock star Vincent Raven in the basically unwatchable Spanish werewolf entry Monster Dog from 1986.

      Count yourself lucky if you haven't seen that. (The Coop fared slightly better a year later in his brief role as a homeless zombie in Halloween auteur John Carpenter's Prince of Darkness.)

      Now Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl is stepping into the horror ring--and bringing his whole band along--with Studio 666.

      Based on a story by Grohl, the comedic film sees the Foo Fighters move into a mansion in an Encino, California to record their much anticipated 10th album. But, as the title portends, supernatural forces ensue.

      As well as Foo Fighters members Grohl, Taylor Hawkins, Pat Smear, Chris Shiflett, Rami Jaffee, and Nate Mendel, the cast includes Jeff Greene, Whitney Cummings, Jenny Ortega, Leslie Grossman, and Will Forte.

      Studio 666 opens in theatres on February 25.
