WATCH: The first trailer for Simon Pegg & Nick Frost’s new horror-comedy

Kyle Picknell

The boys are back in town

They gave us Hot Fuzz.

And they’re back, look! It’s not part of the Cornetto Trilogy with Edgar Wright, but there is a bit in the trailer where Simon Pegg is sat stuffing a choc ice in his mouth.

Anyway, the film is called Slaughter Rulez and is directed by former member of Kula Shaker, Crispian Miller. Obviously.

It sees Simon Pegg and Nick Frost reunite for their first film together since World’s End along with Michael Sheen, Asa Butterfield, Hermione Corfield and Finn Cole from Peaky Blinders.

The film tells the story of a stuffy private boarding school and a nearby fracking site in the woods that unleashes a load of demons (?), monsters (??), evil ancient magic (???) and a Skoda (!!!).

Pegg plays a character called ‘Meredith Houseman’ and Frost plays ‘Woody’, who appears to be some mad lumberjack that sells drugs to children, so if that doesn’t convince you to go and see it, I’m not sure anything will.

It hits cinemas on Halloween. How spooky.
