Would you want to purchase a part of it?’” Grohl recalled. “Whereas I used to be there scripting this materials, I remembered the thought of constructing a horror movie, and I believed, ‘Oh s***, I’m already on this massive creepy outdated home. We’d as effectively not solely make an album right here however really act on that basically silly thought from a yr and a half in the past.’ Quickly, it was a full-length characteristic movie, and the entire thing ballooned right into a mission that we had by no means imagined.”
