Slaughterhouse Rulez

One of the classic comedy duos is returning in the genre that first brought them to wide acclaim, horror.  The stars of ‘Shaun of the Dead’, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, are back dealing with the dark forces of evil in ‘Slaughterhouse Rulez’, which comes from their shared production company Stolen Pictures.  Unfortunately, this isn’t entirely a ‘Shaun of the Dead’ reunion, as it is not directed by Edgar Wright, but rather Crispian Mills, who previously directed Pegg in 2012’s ‘A Fantastic Fear of Everything’.  Also, it appears that Pegg and Frost are just supporting cast members to the juvenile student cast, headed up by Asa Butterfield, with Jassa Ahluwalia, Jamie Blackley, Finn Cole, Kit Connor, Hanako Footman, Tom Rhys Harries and Isabella Laughland.

The adult cast also includes Michael Sheen, Hermione Corfield, and Jo Hartley.  Here is the film’s synopsis:

“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…“
