Upcoming Film Death House Will Be “The Expendables of Horror”
Death House, the upcoming film is being dubbed the “Expendables of Horror“, something that has been craved for and coveted by every horror fan out there. Basically, they all rounding up all of these living iconic horror actors and putting them into one film. The Dream Team of horror!
The script for this film was originally written and developed by the late horror icon, the original Leatherface, Gunnar Hansen. May he rest in peace. I was fortunate enough to work with him when I worked production for the Housecore Horror Film Festival in Austin, TX. (RIP Corey!)
With the passing of Gunnar, director B. Harrison Smith has taken the script and further developed it into fruition. Production for the film has been moving since April and what was an original release date of October 2016, has been pushed to 2017. However, I don’t mind waiting a little longer if that means a better quality film.
According to IMDb, the cast for Death House is definitely a setup for a future Horror Convention QnA panel, that we would all love to see! Peep this amazing list of iconic horror actors!
So here is a little insight to the direction of the film. Are you ready for this shit?!
The Death House is the Area 51 of Evil… a subterranean government facility that holds humanity’s worst on nine levels. Hell, Dante’s ninth level, holds the Five Evils… the “dark stars” of Death House. These individuals are so heinous they can never walk among society again. They may also be supernatural.
Agents Toria Boon and Jae Novak have their own dark pasts, arriving at Death House to tour its levels and observe its denizens first-hand as well as the medical and mental experiments of Drs. Eileen Fletcher and Karen Redmane. Their depraved experiments date back to the Nazi doctors of WWII.
Prison cells are virtual reality holo decks that recreate prisoner environments before they were incarcerated. A special hallucinogenic gas keeps inmates under control. The victims are homeless, bused into Death House to play literal victims while killing habits are studied. The results are sick, but only a hint of what goes on here.
Hell literally breaks loose inside the facility when an EMP device detonates, killing all power and communication and… releasing every prisoner. Boon, Novak, and Fletcher are caught in a race against advancing prisoner hordes led by occultist Neo-Nazi Sieg. The monsters are freed, and they’re going down.
Boon and Novak’s fight through Death House turns into a house of horrors gauntlet; their only hope of escape is descending into Hell and enlisting the help of the Five Evils. Events culminate in a violent face-to-face standoff with absolute evil… only to find that they have traveled down a rabbit hole and through a looking glass. Black is white and white is black and the definitions of good and evil no longer apply.
Who are the monsters? Who will escape?
