‘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

Horror Icons ‘Expendables’ Movie coming!

In 2010 ‘The Expendables’ was released, with a cast of the biggest action stars, lead by Sylvester Stallone. Now, the horror genre is getting it’s own version!   Entitled ‘Death House,’ it will star Robert Englund,   Danny Trejo, Michael Berryman, Kane Hodder, Dee Wallace, Bill Moseley, Barbara Crampton, Doug Bradley, Ken Foree, Camille Keaton and Don Shanks.

The official synopsis for the film: “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?”  read more
