Watch The First Trailer For Simon Pegg And Nick Frost’s New Horror Comedy


If anyone knows how to do a horror comedy properly it’s the heroic duo of Simon Pegg and Nick Frost.

The men behind undoubtedly some of the funniest films of all time, Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, and the less funny, but still funny, Paul and The World’s End. 

Now the pair are returning to what they do best, funny horror movies.

Slaughter Rulez won’t be part of the hallowed Cornetto trilogy that brought the lads so much success along with director, Edgar Wright, but we’re still just as excited about the upcoming flick regardless.

The film will see Pegg and Frost make their first, highly anticipated reunion since The World’s End.

Joining the pair will be Michael Sheen, Asa Butterfield, Hermione Corfield and Finn Cole from Peaky Blinders. So you know, a pretty impressive cast all in all.

The film synopsis reads:

“An illustrious British boarding school becomes a bloody battleground when a mysterious sinkhole appears at a nearby fracking site unleashing unspeakable horror.”

The film will fittingly hit cinemas on Halloween too, just to add to the spookiness.
