This past week, I had the chance to talk to Rick Finkelstein, one of the producers of Death House. He talked to me about his new movie starring the greatest and most iconic Horror cast. Rick told me that Gunnar Hansen (Texas Chainsaw Massacre) has started working on the movie in 2009. It was his dream to make a movie with the greatest Horror cast. His first draft of the script was done in November 2012. After, there was alot of new versions of the movie since they get the right one.
Rick was pretty excited to tell me that a sequel and a prequel of Death House is coming (soon). The sequel is called “Death House 2: The Farm” and the prequel “Dawn of 5 Evils”. Both movies are in the works. The producers are also planning a 6 movies franchise. All the actors wants to be in the sequels.
Premiere and release dates:
The premiere of Death House was at LA and it was sold out. There was also a special screening in Pennsylvania and it was also sold out. Both nights were huge success. The team behind the movie is actively working on a possible “major release date”. Let’s hope the movie will be released soon.
Death House is the very first independent movie to have its own merchandise released before the movie itself. The merch is brought by Terror Threads. Here’s the link if you want to buy some merch: https://terrorthreads.com/search?q=Death+house
The movie does have an impressive score of 94% on Rotten Tomatoes!
•Kane Hodder and Tony Todd actually have agreed to say that their performances in Death House was their best they’ve ever done.
•The movie has been made with 95% of practical effects and only 5% of CGI.
•Rick is sure that it is the beginning of a billion $ franchise and as long as they make money, they will be making movies in the franchise.
Death House, starring Adrienne Barbeau, Sid Haig, Michæl Berryman, Tony Todd, Bill Moseley, Kane Hodder and Barbara Crampton, is now playing in some theaters in the States. You can “like” the official Death House page on Facebook, support the campain and ask to get a special screening in YOUR CITY. We are really excited to see the movie.
