Simon Pegg & Nick Frost in First UK Trailer for 'Slaughterhouse Rulez'
"It's a gateway - and it leads straight, down, to hell." Sony Pictures UK has debuted the first full UK trailer for a horror comedy titled Slaughterhouse Rulez, the latest from director Crispian Mills (A Fantastic Fear of Everything). The film is also the latest featuring both Nick Frost and Simon Pegg, the duo best known from Edgar Wright's Cornetto trilogy. Slaughterhouse Rulez is about an illustrious British boarding school that becomes a bloody battleground when a mysterious sinkhole appears at a nearby fracking site unleashing unspeakable horror. It's going to be bloody. Starring Asa Butterfield, Finn Cole, Hermione Corfield, Michael Sheen, with Frost and Pegg. This reminds me a bit of Battle Royale, but packed with British humor and rich yuppies instead of crazy Japanese gore. Looks like fun. Prepare to get Slaughtered…
