The Expendables of Horror
Death House seemed like it was going to be horror gold with the sheer amount of horror icons that are in this movie. From Kane Hodder, Sid Haig, Tony Moran, Tony Todd, Michael Berryman, and plenty of others, this one fell short. The story line being great this had all the makings to be the horror film of a life time but extremely dry acting from some of the main characters really killed the vibe for me. There was amazing practical effects, and a couple of scenes that blew my mind, some bits of nudity here and there, but the acting just killed it for me. The best bit of acting came from no surprise here, Mr. Sid Haig RIP, who only had about a 2 minute bit in the whole film but did it in a way that only Sid could do. Then there were countless horror icons that had absolutely no speaking rolls and some that were so small if you blinked you would miss it. I definitely expected more from this film, over all i could have went without watching it.
