A trio of horror icons have joined the already star-studded Death House that features Danny Trejo, Kane Hodder, Dee Wallace, Bill Moseley, Cody Longo, Michael Berryman, Lindsay Hartley, Bill Oberst Jr. and heaps more.
Now, we can reveal that Stelio Savante, Felissa Rose and Richard Speight Jr. and have joined the horror-tastic cast. Among them, these three have featured in The Secret Village, Open Water 2, Independence Day, Zombie Killers: Elephant’s Graveyard and Camp Dread, so they are no strangers to the genre that we love.
The epic synopsis can be read in full below:
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 WW II. 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 hoards led by occultist Neo-Nazi Sieg. The monsters are freed and they’re going down.
Anything that features a horror cast as strong as this will leap on to our watch list and we’re sure it’s going to hop on to yours, too. Death House comes from director Harrison Smith (Zombie Killers: Elephant’s Graveyard, Camp Dread) and has a script part-written by the late Gunnar Hansen and, also, Harrison Smith.
Death House has a release date slated for October 2016, so perfectly timed to land near Halloween.
