Well, it’s been a long wait but, after months of relative silence on the film, a release date has finally been announced for the hotly-anticipated horror icon-a-thon Death House. Director Harrison Smith (who also wrote the film with the late Gunnar Hansen) revealed through a live stream on Sunday that the film will be released on January 26th, 2018, in Regal Cinemas across the US.
Inevitably leading to it being dubbed the ‘Expendables of Horror’, Death House’s extraordinary cast is made up of numerous iconic genre stars. Those featured include Kane Hodder, Barbara Crampton, Dee Wallace, Bill Moseley, Sid Haig, Adrienne Barbeau, Michael Berryman, Tony Todd, Vernon Wells, Camille Keaton, Lloyd Kaufman and Debbie Rochon.
Two federal agents fight their way through nine levels of Hell inside a secret prison known as the Death House. A facility-wide prison break turns their flight into a tour of horrors as they push toward the ultimate evil housed in the lowest depths of the earth.
The two agents are played by Piranha 3D’s Cody Longo and Cortney Palm (Zombeavers, Silent Night).
With Death House arriving a year later than originally planned, it’s something of a relief to have a date locked. While international release dates are yet to be confirmed however, it’s good to know the film is finally on its way.
