Slaughterhouse Rulez – UK, 2018

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 (pictured above in Shaun of the Dead; The World’s EndHot Fuzz), Finn Cole, Asa Butterfield, Hermione Corfield and Michael Sheen.

An illustrious British boarding school becomes a bloody battleground when a mysterious sinkhole appears at a nearby fracking site unleashing unspeakable horror. Soon a new pecking order will be established as pupils, teachers and the school matron 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 scheduled for a release in the UK on September 7, 2018.
