On its way to us soon will be the mother of all horror mash-ups, DEATH HOUSE! The film, conceived by Gunner Hansen as “the expendables of horror”, will be out soon and features a ton of horror vets. Dee Wallace, Barbara Crampton, Kane Hodder, Bill Moseley, Sid Haig, Tiffany Shepis and Felissa Rose star (and that’s not all). Check out the first full trailer below…
From the Press Release:
Two federal agents fight their way through nine levels of Hell inside a secret prison known as the Death House. A facility-wide prison break turns their flight into a tour of horrors as they push toward the ultimate evil housed in the lowest depths of the earth.
Dubbed the “Expendables of Horror,” the film blasts an ensemble of legendary genre names such as Dee Wallace, Barbara Crampton, Kane Hodder, and a number of other official surprises.
Produced by Entertainment Factory’s Rick Finkelstein and Steven Chase, Death House is directed by B. Harrison Smith (Camp Dread, Zombie Killers: Elephant’s Graveyard, 6 Degrees of Hell, The Fields). Smith wrote the screenplay based on an original story by Texas Chain Saw Massacre legend, the late Gunnar Hansen.
The film is NOT a monster mashup of iconic characters. It is an original story revolving around federal agents Cody Longo (Piranha 3D) and Cortney Palm (Zombeavers, Sushi Girl, Silent Night) fighting their way into the bowels of a federal prison that holds the worst prisoners on earth.
The film is a nod toward classic horror but presenting a fresh, new story inspired from Lovecraft and Dante. Practical effects are mastered through the wizardry of Roy Knyrim’s SOTA FX (Gods and Monsters, Ed Wood).
The film’s release is slated for late 2016/early 2017 depending on distribution scheduling.
