‘Death House’ Slated for April VOD Release

The last work of the legendary Gunnar Hansen will soon be available for all to see. Before he left us in 2015, Gunnar wrote the script for the film Death House with the intentions of featuring as many legends of the horror genre as possible.

After the gentle giant’s passing, the script was punched up by Harrison Smith (Camp Dread) who also took over directing duties. When it comes to Gunnar’s wish to cast as many horror legends as possible, it’s safe to say that they went all out. The short list is Adrienne Barbeau, Sid Haig, Kane Hodder, Vernon Wells, Tony Todd, Felissa Rose, Michael Berryman, Dee Wallace, Bill Moseley, Barbara Crampton and more…seriously. read more

While the festivities didn’t technically begin until 11am, doors were opened at 10am to allow those who ordered tickets in advance an extra hour to take in the ghoulish sights inside. Those folks had first dibs on tons of vendors that were set up inside of the arena; some selling horror-related merchandise, others selling their books and still others selling films both popular and independently made. read more
