‘Death House’: Horror legends unite for ‘Expendables’-style ensemble movie

The cast includes Robert Englund, Kane Hodder, Danny Trejo and Barbara Crampton

A host of well-known horror movie stars are uniting for an ensemble movie modelled on The Expendables.

Titled Death House, the film is being directed by Camp Dread‘s Harrison Smith. The script’s first draft was written by Gunnar Hansen, the actor who played Leatherface in The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, who sadly passed away in November.

The film’s cast includes Robert Englund (Nightmare On Elm Street), Kane Hodder (Friday The 13th), Doug Bradley (Hellraiser), Bill Moseley (House Of 1000 Corpses), Michael Berryman (The Hills Have Eyes), Dee Wallace (The Hills Have Eyes), Danny Trejo (Grindhouse), Barbara Crampton (Chopping Mall), Ken Foree (Dawn Of The Dead), Don Shanks (Halloween 5) and Camille Keaton (I Spit On Your Grave).

A plot synopsis teases: “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.

“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?”

It is currently unknown when Harrison Smith will start shooting Death House, but according to IMDB the film is set for release in 2017.
