Death House Harrison Smith Kane Hodder

Horror lost one of its greatest icons when the original Leatherface Gunnar Hansen passed away last year, but one of Hansen's final wishes has been realized through the production of DEATH HOUSE, a film written and directed by B. Harrison Smith, based on a story by Hansen.

The cast of DEATH HOUSE is packed with Hansen's fellow icons, including Kane Hodder, Michael Berryman, Barbara Crampton, Sid Haig, Bill Moseley, Tony Todd, Dee Wallace, Felissa Rose, Vernon Wells, R.A. Mihailoff, Camille Keaton, and Danny Trejo, coming together to help tell the following story:

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 federal agents are played by Cortney Palm of SILENT NIGHT and ZOMBEAVERS and Cody Longo of PIRANHA 3D.

The story sounds quite simple, but Hansen and Smith were aiming high with the way it would be told and presented, as the newly released red band trailer reveals. While DEATH HOUSE doesn't look at all like I thought it would, this is a pleasant surprise. DEATH HOUSE may well deliver the bloodbath I'm anticipating, but it's taking an unexpected approach that might make it even more entertaining.
