I'm so excited to see Simon Pegg and Nick Frost return to the horror-comedy genre! Today, Sony Pictures has shared the first ever trailer for Slaughterhouse Rulez, a coming-of-age film that looks like a solid mixture of C.H.U.D. meets Harry Potter. Do yourself a favor and check out the trailer below!
“Welcome to Slaughterhouse, an elite boarding school where boys and girls are groomed for power and greatness…and they’re about to meet their match. This ancient and ordered world is about to be shaken to its foundations – literally – when a controversial frack site on prized school woodland causes seismic tremors, a mysterious sinkhole, and an unspeakable horror to be unleashed. Soon a new pecking order will be established as the pupils and teachers alike become locked in a bloody battle for survival…“
Directed by Crispian Mills from a screenplay co-written by Mills and Henry Fitzherbert, The film stars Asa Butterfield, Finn Cole, Hermione Corfield, Michael Sheen, Nick Frost, and Simon Pegg.
Slaughterhouse Rulez will release in the UK on Halloween, sadly a US release date hasn't been announced. But wouldn't it be so cool to see this film on Halloween!
