Death House will be opening its doors very soon, and the official trailer for the all-star ensemble of horror icons and genre veterans has just dropped at Days of the Dead, and we have it for you to check out!
The highly anticipated film based on an original story written by Gunnar Hansen (Leatherface in The Texas Chain Saw Massacre) features a killer ensemble of horror icons, including Tony Todd (Candyman, Final Destination), Kane Hodder (Friday the 13th VII-X, Hatchet), Danny Trejo (Machete, The Devil’s Rejects, Halloween), R.A. Mihailoff (Texa Chainsaw Massacre 3, Smothered), and many more, including some notable former Haddonfield residents.
We have learned that Tony Moran plays a character named “Miguel”, which is a direct homage to his appearance as Michael Myers in John Carpenter’s Halloween, while Sean Whalen (The People Under the Stairs), who had a brief cameo in Rob Zombie’s Halloween II, plays Satan, and Captain Spaulding himself Sid Haig (Halloween, House of 1,000 Corpses, The Devil’s Rejects) plays “Icicle Killer”.
Our pal Bill Moseley (Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2, House of 1,000 Corpses), who also had a memorable cameo in the 2007 Halloween remake, talked to us earlier this year about Death House and his “satanic” character, which you can read all about in our interview here.
Barbara Crampton (Re-Animator, You’re Next), Adriene Barbeau (The Fog, Escape From New York), Michael Berryman (The Hills Have Eyes), Felissa Rose (Sleepaway Camp, Paranormal Halloween), Tiffany Shepis (Night of the Demons, Tales of Halloween), Debbie Rochon (Chainsaw Sally), Camille Keaton (I Spit on Your Grave), and Cortney Palm (Sushi Girl, Silent Night, Zombeavers) are just some of the genre vets that make up this amazing cast, which has been dubbed “the Expendables of horror”.
Death House is written and directed by Harrison Smith (Camp Dread, Zombie Killers).
