DEATH HOUSE, currently being touted by the press as “The Expendables of Horror,” is easily one of the most anticipated films in horror history due to the unprecedented lineup of the genre’s most iconic and legendary actors.

Storyline

The Death House is the Area 51 of Evil...a subterranean government facility that holds humanity's worst on nine levels.

During an exclusive tour, a power breakdown inside a secret prison known as the Death House sends two agents fighting through a labyrinth of horrors while being pursued by a ruthless army of roaming inmates. As they fight to escape, the agents push toward the lowest depths of the facility where they learn a supernatural group of evil beings are their only chance for survival.

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.

• What to bring
A strong stomach. It'sa solid horror piece, dark and nasty, not satire or tongue in cheek. Think Assault on Precinct 13 meets Jurassic World (without the dinosaurs).

• Important to know
Tickets available online at (LOCATION) once we know which theater location.

• There is reportedly a video game in the works, with seven different characters; one must play each to obtain the key to show...a preview of Dawn of 5 Evils, the prequel.
