Horror iconen verzamelen in Death House

Horror Iconen verzamelen in Death House
In The Expendables (2010) kwamen de grootse actiesterren samen. Dit was het begin van een daverend succesvolle franchise, waarin legendarische actiehelden uit de jaren 80 en 90 weer ouderwets konden knallen. Er zijn meerdere pogingen geweest om deze succesformule te evenaren, zo is er een vrouwelijke versie genaamd The Expendabelles. Nu krijgt het horror genre ook zijn eigen film, genaamd Death House.

Death House zal een verzameling zijn van horror iconen uit de jaren 80 en 90. De volgende namen zijn al bekend: Robert Englund, Danny Trejo, Michael Berryman, Kane Hodder, Dee Wallace, Bill Moseley, Barbara Crampton, Doug Bradley, Ken Foree, Camille Keaton en Don Shanks. Gunnar Hansen (Leatherface) schreef het scenario, maar overleed helaas vorig jaar november. Harrison Smith (Zombie Killers: Elephant’s Graveyard ) zal de film regisseren.

Death House


“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?”

Het is nog onbekend wanneer de film in productie gaat. Door de dood van Hansen is er vertraging op gelopen.
