OUR RATING: ★★★☆☆
Horror comedy directed by BJ McDonnell. Studio 666 (2022) follows legendary rock band Foo Fighters who move into an Encino mansion steeped in grisly rock and roll history to record their much anticipated tenth album. Once in the house, Dave Grohl finds himself grappling with supernatural forces that threaten both the completion of the album and the lives of the band.
Jeremy Shill: [to the band] I think, personally, that doesn’t amount to a bucket of frozen s**t. I don’t know where you get a bucket of frozen s**t, but that’s what it’s about! When you f***ing tell me you got a record, all I got is a bucket of frozen s**t!
Dave Grohl: [to Shill] I just want to give you the f***ing album that you want, so you can pay off those people before they turn your nut sack into a f***ing coin purse.
Dave Grohl: We were thinking, it’s our tenth album, okay? We can’t do the same old s**t. We got to break the f***ing mold on this one.
Taylor Hawkins: Yeah, Shill, this record, it’s got to f***ing blow your f***ing d**k right into your f***ing mouth.
Jeremy Shill: Blow your own d**k into your mouth?
Taylor Hawkins: Yeah, right back up into your mouth, man.
Jeremy Shill: Right back up into your mouth? Like it’s been there before? What kind of goal is that? I don’t want that album. Unless it makes me a lot of money. Lot of money? Blow all the d**ks you want.
Dave Grohl: Let’s go somewhere we’ve never been. Let’s go to a cool place. Like Zeppelin. When Zeppelin went to the castle, and there was the devil, and the wizards, and the dragons, and s**t.
Jeremy Shill: Alright. So, you want me to find you some wizards and dragons?
Dave Grohl: Yes! That’s what we should be doing.
Barb Weems: [showing the band the house] Look at this state of the art kitchen. Do we have any chefs in the group?
Dave Grohl: I’m pretty handy on the grill. Yeah. Right, guys?
Chris Shiflett: Yeah. If you like your meat charred and dry. Am I right?
Dave Grohl: I don’t know, it definitely has a weird energy. You guys feel that? Do you guys get this overwhelming sense of death and doom? Or is that just me?
Pat Smear: Yeah, like someone’s going to jump through the window and start stabbing us in the eyes!
Dave Grohl: The sound of this house is the sound of album ten. No songs yet. But we’ve got the sound.
Dave Grohl: Who cares about a creepy death vibe, drum sounds this good?
Taylor Hawkins: A month in this f***ing s**thole?
Dave Grohl: And then we can go on with our normal lives, okay?
Taylor Hawkins: You tell my wife. I’m not telling her.
Dave Grohl: I’ll tell your wife if you tell my wife.
Nate Mendel: I’ll tell my own wife, but someone’s got to talk to my kids.
Rami Jaffee: What am I going to tell my grandma?
Chris Shiflett: Oh, I can call your grandma. She loves me.
Krug: Dude, who wired this house, a bunch of f***ing mental patients?
Pat Smear: [after Krug is killed] Guess we should pack up. That was a short-lived experiment.
Dave Grohl: You know, it’s funny… Hold on, guys. One second. Check it out. Krug was really into this place. You know, the way the drums sounded.
Chris Shiflett: Dave, seriously, the guy just got turned into a f***ing bratwurst.
Dave Grohl: Exactly why we should stay here and make the record. Okay? It’ll give his life meaning. You know? We could dedicate it to Krug.
Dave Grohl: Earlier today, before Krug got zapped, there was this weird dude in the yard, creeping around.
Chris Shiflett: What kind of dude?
Dave Grohl: Some weird guy, he was like trimming the hedges and stuff.
Pat Smear: The killer gardener of Encino.
Dave Grohl: Wouldn’t be surprised in this house.
Samantha: [as she scares Dave] You should have seen your face! Or should I say “feces”? I mean, you looked like you crapped your pants.
Rami Jaffee: Let me apologize in advance for all the rock we’re about to make.
Samantha: Oh, I can’t hear anything over my Portuguese singing bowls.
Rami Jaffee: Ooh, those vibrations elevate the frequency of the psyche.
Samantha: Play your cards right, maybe you will get a sound bath later.
Dave Grohl: Okay, Rami-o. Let’s keep it moving.
Dave Grohl: I got a couple new riff ideas I’ve been working on. I’m going to lay them on you. Riff number one. Sounds like this.
Pat Smear: [as Dave plays the song] So, All My Life?
Dave Grohl: S**t. Okay, no, no, no. Hold on. I got one more.
Taylor Hawkins: [as Dave plays the song] Dude, wait. Wait, wait, wait. That’s a great f***ing song. It’s called Everlong, and you wrote it about twenty years ago.
Dave Grohl: The well’s run dry. I’ve written all my songs already. All I have are these random snippets of fossilized MTV bulls**t in my head.
Lionel Richie: [to Dave] We all have writer’s block, you know? But that’s my f***ing song. That’s my f***ing song! You understand what I’m saying? I like that song. No, no, no. I love that song! That’s one of my favorite songs. I love singing that song. Love that song! Get your own song! Nerd.
Delivery Guy: You’re like incognito, right?
Dave Grohl: No, see, I’m not Dave Grohl. Dave Grohl can actually write music.
Delivery Guy: I’m seriously a huge fan. You’re like my second favorite band after Coldplay.
Taylor Hawkins: It’s feels like you were musically constipated, and now you just took the biggest musical s**t on us. F***ing awesome!
Dave Grohl: I know, right? I’m still working on it. It’s like a hundred ideas in my head just fighting to get out. Could be a double, maybe a triple album.
Pat Smear: What key is this in?
Dave Grohl: L sharp.
Pat Smear: You found a new musical note?
Dave Grohl: Hell m**herf***ing yes, I did. Came to me last night. Just dropped in my head. Like, boom! You’re welcome, music.
Dave Grohl: It’s not an E, it’s an L. If you guys could just like open up your hearts and minds, you know, maybe you’d be able to hear it.
Rami Jaffee: So, what happened to H, I, J, K?
Dave Grohl: G, H, I, don’t give a f***! It’s L sharp, okay, you guys? That’s the root note of the song.
Nate Mendel: You know we’re coming in at like twenty-three minutes and counting, right?
Dave Grohl: So what? So maybe we have a song that has no end.
Pat Smear: No. I said no.
Dave Grohl: No? Did you just say no to Dave Grohl? I’m a f***ing rock star! Okay? I get whatever I want, whenever I want! The best parking wherever I go for eternity! Them’s the rules!
Pat Smear: [referring to Dave] Dude has gone f***ing crazy! Like, a**-flapping, d**k-slapping, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest crazy.
Nate Mendel: We’re not actually making a thirty-eight minute long song, right?
Dave Grohl: No.
Nate Mendel: Okay, cool.
Dave Grohl: It’s going to be f***ing longer than that.
Pat Smear: A lemon bar?
Barb Weems: No, thank you. I don’t eat sugar, or gluten, or any citrus fruits, or dairy, or corn. It’s terrible for your gut.
Barb Weems: Is the album almost done?
Dave Grohl: Yeah, it’s so good. Yeah, it’s killer.
Chris Shiflett: [to himself] Forty-minute f***ing song. “Look at me. I’m Dave Grohl, the big f***ing genius. I don’t have any f***ing rules. I write songs with no f***ing endings. Forty minutes long.” He can’t even cook a piece of meat to save his life.
Rami Jaffee: We should get Dave one of those magnet bracelets. His energy’s way off.
