Studio 666 is a comedy and horror movie launched on 25th February 2022. The film was shot in secret during the pandemic. The idea of creating a horror movie entered Dave Grohl’s mind when around three years ago, his friend suggested a Foo Fighters horror movie.
At that time, Grohl instantly replied that it is one of the stupidest ideas that he has ever heard but now, that idea has taken the shape of reality. Once the idea was shared, Dave Grohl couldn’t help but think of a plot for the movie.
His creative direction pushed him to plot the movie with a storyline that a band has headed to a house to record an album. However, they later come to know that previously a singer has gone insane in the house and he further, ended up murdering the entire band as a result of creative differences and later committed suicide too.
Studio 666 revolves around this storyline and can be considered as a gore-filled horror-comedy movie.
Grohl was inspired to create Studio 666 when he was laying down the tracks for the album of the band titled Medicine at Midnight in 2021 in a house situated in Encino. It has featured Taylor Hawkins, Rami Jaffee, Pat Smear, and Nate Mendel.
When they were shooting for their album in the house of Encino, Grohl was stuck with the idea that they already have a house and after they are done with the record, the band members can take a couple of days off to create a low-budget film and that’s exactly what happened that led to the creation of Studio 666. However, it needs to be noted that initial efforts snowballed to create a full-length feature film.
Studio 666 was filmed in Los Angeles, California, USA, and has a runtime of 1 hour and 46 minutes. The production companies involved in Studio 666 are Roswell Films and Therapy Studios.

It has been said that Studio 666 came into existence for fun. The band members never intended to enter Hollywood with such a big horror movie but it happened naturally. The movie has been in development since 2019.
However, it faced a few hindrances because of the Covid-19 pandemic. However, it was soon back on track. In 2021, Grohl released two albums along with a documentary and a documentary series, a few singles, a tour, and a memoir. When asked what drives him to produce so much work, Grohl answered coffee!.
