What happens next is a mishmash of questionable acting [mostly from Grohl’s bandmates] through a whacky, yet wonderfully gore-infused script that revolves around the Foo’s making their 10th studio album.
Guest appearances from the one and only Kerry King [Slayer] as a grumpy roadie who gets smoked in the early stages of the movie, but not before a short [buy hilarious] scene involving Grohl looking for the “perfect” snare sound, at the hands of King, who looks like he’s ready to shove a drum stick up the frontman’s ass.
An equally funny cameo from Lional Richie, gets a chuckle as he tells Grohl, “Get your own Fuckin’ song. “.
All-in-all, ‘Studio 666‘ is a bit of fun. A tongue-in-cheek, ridiculous comedy-horror with decent moments of gore, and a colour-by-numbers script. Was I entertained? Hell yeah!
If I were to describe the overall vibe of ‘Studio 666‘, I’d say it’s a perfect hybrid of The Monkees [TV series], mixed with Evil Dead and sprinkling of Scooby-Doo. What’s not to like about that?
‘Studio 666‘ is out now in all good movie theatres. 7/10.
