Check out the trailer for Slaughterhouse Rulez, an upcoming horror-comedy featuring Simon Pegg and Nick Frost.
Alas, it’s not another Cornetto movie and Edgar Wright isn’t involved, and Pegg and Frost aren’t the leads. But still, if they’re on board – with Michael Sheen as well, then so are we.
The film is set at a British boarding school that becomes a bloody battleground when unspeakable horror is unleashed from a nearby sinkhole. It looks like an amiable little horr-edy (?), with a nice cast and a welcome touch of practical effects.
This marks the second film from writer-director Crispian Mills, whose first feature A Fantastic Fear of Everything also starred Pegg but wasn’t very well received. Fingers crossed here.
Slaughterhouse Rulez, also starring Asa Butterfield, Finn Cole and Hermione Corfield, will be hitting UK cinemas on 31 October 2018.
Official synopsis for Slaughterhouse Rulez:
