Horror Icon-Loaded ‘Death House’ Finally Has a Release Date

So many iconic horror actors are loaded into Harrison Smith’s Death House that many dubbed the film “The Expendables of Horror” when it was first announced. But Smith promises it’s no gimmick film, and we cannot wait to check it out.

Today it was announced that after a long wait, Death House will be releasing January 26, 2018, in Regal Cinemas across the United States!

Death House, written by Smith and the late Gunnar Hansen, stars a long list of legends including Kane HodderBarbara Crampton, Dee Wallace, Tony Todd, Bill Moseley, Adrienne Barbeau, Michael Berryman, Felissa Rose and Sid Haig.

In the film…

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.

Check out the original trailer below, while we wait for a new one.

    That trailer looks like this is cheap trash. There’s nothing interesting about this from that trailer.

    • Yeah it’s very unfortunate how amateur it looks. I wish it looked better considering it probably took a ton of effort to get that cast together

  • Elizabeth

    Yikes. The problem with loading a movie with horror movie “legends” is that not all of them are–how to put this nicely–the best actors (Tony Todd, excluded). Their bread and butter is usually looking menacing or screaming a lot. I guess what I’m trying to say is that the trailer reminded me of a SyFy original, and not in a good way (is there a good way?).

    • To be honest, I found the non-horror icons to have the worst acting in the trailer. But yeah, legends like Kane Hodder are known for bringing personality and body language to mostly silent, somewhat one-dimensional antagonists like Jason Voorhees and Victor Crowley.

      • Elizabeth

        I probably didn’t pay close enough attention to who was awkwardly reciting their lines. The trailer looked low budget enough that I’m assuming they blew everything on name recognition.

  • Chip

    This looks far, far away from what was originally promised. Face it, they couldn’t remotely get the rights they wanted, so they settled for a far more simplified plot, and asked everyone who still goes to sign at horror conventions if they wanted to work for a weekend.

    Not interested.

    • They never promised actual horror icon characters. Ever. “Horror icons” and “The Expendables of horror” refers to the iconic actors, not the characters. Did you actually think they would even be able to make such a film? That would be a rights nightmare.

      • Chip

        Meh. Shame on me for getting the facts wrong.

        Still looks like SyFy level garbage though.

  • bastardjackyll

    Doesn’t look that bad.

  • #disappointed , this is not a leaked picture of Carnage !?

  • It looks awful, but I’ll give it a chance. I would rather read Gunnar Hansen’s original screenplay, though. Any word on a V.O.D. date?

  • ?hollywood

    This has sucks written all over it..

  • Mike tantatelli

    Please be good please be good please be good please be good…….

  • HeWaTcHeSnOeYeS

    The acting in the trailer is oscar- worthy.

  • J Jett



    ………my god the dialogue….the best part of the trailer was the bloody, skinned(?) screaming woman at the end.

    • Agreed. I’m more interested in reading Gunnar Hansen’s original script than whatever they turned it into. In fact, Doug Bradley said in an interview that the reason he isn’t in the movie is because it’s practically unrecognisable from what Hansen’s original vision was.

  • KennyThaKilla

    It’s about damn time.

    Although, I’m not sure how anyone could call this “The Expendables of Horror” without Robert Englund.

    • Meisha’s Taint

      They are saving him for the sequel duh

    • Or Doug Bradley, for that matter.

  • Mike Lawrence

    Doesn’t look great, but with so many icons loaded into it I’ll definitely watch it anyways.
    Where is Danielle Harris, though? If she had been in that unknown brunette’s role it would’ve been a perfect, awesome mess of goodness.

    • Poindexter_Jones

      I thought the same thing while watching the trailer.

    • Lead star Courtney Palm(ZOMBEAVERS,SUSHI GIRL) pretty much heavily resembles Danielle Harris.

  • neilold

    why, why must you torture me like this??? I’ve being awaiting this film for years, and posted on it so many times, it’s simply not funny. We all know it doesn’t exist, and this is only my personal Chinese (well American) torture, please stop, please

  • Meisha’s Taint

    You had me at Dee Wallace

  • Kyle Cole

    Thank god we have regal cinemas here, i cant wait to go see this!! I’d much rather it be released on dvd instead

  • Poindexter_Jones

    We have Regal cinemas here in Nashville as well. Cannot wait to see this film.

    • Las Vegas luckily has a strongly dominant Regal Cinema chain,for it’s a good chance it’ll be playing theaters here.

  • Spawn Bitch

    I love horror, but this looks like ah pile of shit.

  • celinda guley

    Barbara Crampton looks great lol.The movie looks horrible.I’ll give it the 15 minute test lol.

  • Necro

    I love all the names attached, but I can’t get stoked about this. Something is off, maybe it’s too much. It’s to bad for all the legal bullshit in the industry, this would’ve been great to see all our Horror characters in one film. The premise seems to fit. Now how the story would play out is another story. I’ll wait for January and see how it goes. I’m glad I don’t put to much stock in trailers cuz if I did I wouldn’t be watching this.
