Horror fans are very familiar with the antics of Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, primarily through Edgar Wright’s Shaun of the Dead and the rest of his “Cornetto Trilogy” (including Hot Fuzz and The World’s End.)
Although Wright doesn’t have any involvement in their latest collaboration, the boarding school horror comedy Slaughterhouse Rulez, the trailer seems to include a lot of what fans would expect from the duo. Pegg and Frost are joined by Michael Sheen and Asa Butterfield in the film, directed by Crispian Mills (who previously worked with Pegg on 2012’s A Fantastic Fear of Everything).
The British production (which seems to poke fun at everything from The Cider House Rules, the Harry Potter series, and An American Werewolf in London) is set for a Halloween 2018 release in the UK from Sony Pictures International. No american dates have been revealed as of yet, but stay tuned to Horror News Network for more updates, and check out the brand new trailer below.
