Bringing you the best in Horror Movie News, and all things Horror.
Can you imagine a movie with a large group of Horror icons coming together to try and bring us fear? Well it looks like this may actually be happening. It is no secret that the idea has been kicking around for quite some time about doing such film.
Back in 2010, THE EXPENDABLES arrived and made a lot of waves and money for that matter, assembling an all-star cast of some really big action stars. Taking this concept and applying it to the Horror genre became a bit of a far fetched hopeful wish.
We have known for a while now about one such project that utilizes this concept titled DEATH HOUSE, which was penned by the late Gunnar Hansen who passed away in November.
With Horror icons proposed such as Robert Englund, Danny Trejo, Michael Berryman, Kane Hodder, Dee Wallace, Bill Moseley, Barbara Crampton, Doug Bradley, Ken Foree, Camille Keaton and Don Shanks, it seems that this could be a recipe for a hit.
So what is to become of this big idea? It appears that the film is "moving forward vigorously" according to it's IMDB page. The page also states that Hansen's death set production back for a bit. It is unknown if a distributor is in place.
Harrison Smith, who will direct DEATH HOUSE said back in August that the project will combine the grittiness of ASSAULT ON PRECINCT 13 and will have the gore of SAW as well as the action of JURASSIC PARK.
"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?"
DEATH HOUSE is penciled in for an unspecified 2017 release.
