Horror, Music and Foo Fighters. It is from this combination that the film directed by BJ McDonnell, based on an original story by Dave Grohl, results. It is interpreted by the elements of the band, who make themselves. Will Forte, Whitney Cummings, Jeff Garlin and Jenna Ortega join the cast.
The action takes place in a haunted mansion in Encino, Los Angeles, which is chosen by the group to record their new album. But the progress of the works is disturbed by supernatural forces, demonic possessions and unexplained deaths.

USA, 2005. Laurel Hester is a police officer in New Jersey. On a personal level, she is in a marital relationship with Stacie Andree, 19 years her junior.

It’s also a film about absentees: Charlotte’s older sister Kate Barry, daughter of Jane’s first marriage to composer John Barry, who died in 2013, or the father whose name Charlotte carries, Serge Gainsbourg.
