Slaughterhouse Rulez – UK, 2018

‘Bloodius · Hellius · Maximus’

Slaughterhouse Rulez is a 2018 comedy horror feature film directed by Crispian Mills (A Fantastic Fear of Everything), from a screenplay co-written with Henry Fitzherbert.

The Stolen Picture production stars Simon Pegg and Nick Frost (Shaun of the Dead; The World’s EndHot Fuzz), Finn Cole, Asa Butterfield, Hermione Corfield and Michael Sheen.

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 fracking 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…

Regarding the plot, Simon Pegg told Digital Trends: “It’s going to be really fun. It’s a sort of a horror comedy. It felt like the right thing for Nick and I to have as our first collaboration with Stolen Picture. It’s about a private school in the UK which sells off parts of its land to a fracking company, and the fracking company then unleashes a subterranean monster that terrorises the school. It’s a big metaphor for the UK privatising things, and it’s mixed up with some ridiculous, sloppy horror. So it’s right up our street.”

Slaughterhouse Rulez is released in the UK by Sony Pictures on October 31, 2018.
