Grohl says that other times when he plays satanic, the process is “tough and long”, with hours of makeup.
He previously played Lucifer alongside Jack Black and Kyle Gass in videos for the comedy rock band Tenacious D.
Grohl told the PA news agency: “The make-up and makeup process for that video can take a couple of hours, painting it red and putting that on my face is pretty much fun.
“I played the devil in their movie The Pick Of Destiny, it took about six hours of makeup to put that thing on. It’s really, really involved and tedious and long.
“I wouldn’t wish that on anyone and I’ll never do it again.”
“For this film, it was really simple and I just put some fangs and contacts in and messed up my face a bit.”

He continued: “But it’s great… I love Halloween, I love being someone else for four or five hours at night.
“So I got to do it in a good month and a half and it was really fun.”
Foo Fighters have recorded ten studio albums, the latest being Medicine At Midnight, released last year and recorded at the same location where Studio 666 was filmed.
Grohl said the band planned to shoot a “fun, low-budget movie” after completing the album, but didn’t expect it to turn into a full-length feature film.
“This is just a weird idea and having done music videos like we’ve been doing for the past 26 years, this is just a much more exaggerated version of that,” he told PA.
“We understand well we just happened to have this house, why don’t we finish the album, take a few weeks off, then bring in some cameras and make a really cool low budget killer movie. this taste
“Then it became a full-length series. It’s not something we planned to do, it’s just evolved into a real movie, which still surprises us.”
He added: “Nobody was in for best actor in a lead role.”
Studio 666 is directed by BJ McDonnell, and stars Dave Grohl, Taylor Hawkins, Nate Mendel, Pat Smear, Chris Shiflett & Rami Jaffee.
It is released in cinemas across the UK and Ireland on 25 February 2022.
