A new horror film will unite all of the icons of the genre in one epic, bloody fight for survival, similar to the lassoing in of action legends in The Expendables franchise. Dubbed Death House, the movie will focus on the “Area 51 of evil,” where a government facility holds all of humanity’s worst death-dealers underground.
Who are they? You’ll probably recognize a bunch of icons from movies like A Nightmare on Elm Street and Re-Animator: Robert Englund, Danny Trejo, Michael Berryman, Kane Hodder, Dee Wallace, Bill Moseley, Barbara Crampton, Doug Bradley, Ken Foree, Camille Keaton and Don Shanks, among others.
Gunnar Hansen, the face of Leatherface in the original The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, was set to be in the film before he passed away last November from pancreatic cancer. Hansen wrote the script for the film before he died, while Harrison Smith is set to direct the mayhem. »

When The Expendables hit theaters back in 2010, it assembled a cast of some of the biggest action stars around, lead by Sylvester Stallone. Since then, there have been attempts to re-create this formula in other ways, such as an all-female version known as ExpendaBelles, and the Fast & Furious franchise's cast only keeps getting bigger and bigger after The Expendables came out. Now it seems that the horror genre is getting its own version of The Expendables with a new movie entitled Death House, which features a murderer's row of genre legends, according to iHorror.
The cast includes horror icons that any genre fan will be familiar with, such as Robert Englund, Danny Trejo, Michael Berryman, Kane Hodder, Dee Wallace, Bill Moseley, Barbara Crampton, Doug Bradley, Ken Foree, Camille Keaton and Don Shanks. Unfortunately, one of the other proposed stars, Gunnar Hansen, passed away in November. He also wrote the screenplay, »
