After several years of principal photography and post production edits, the critically acclaimed horror-thriller Death House is officially making its way to public screenings. It started on March 2, 2018 with a limited premiere in Los Angeles and Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania following TONIGHT. Based only on that one theater’s total, Box Office Mojo is reporting that Death House made $10,300 in ticket sales during its theatrical debut this weekend. Of course, estimates could be a lot higher before Monday morning. If you consider the average ticket price is $10, that means over 1,000 people went out for the movie people are calling “exciting and unnerving” and “original and intelligent.”
Here’s why these numbers are important. Produced under Entertainment Factory, LLC and sent to theaters by Hannover House, Death House is marginally an independently produced feature film. Hannover House isn’t known for putting any big titles out on the market, so this is a real chance to make Death House their first sleeper hit. We always say, “support independent horror,” but this time we really mean it! Theaters and film distributors are more likely to bump up their screenings and in-house numbers if there’s a demand for the product. On March 9, 2018, Death House is expanding to more locations in Atlanta, D.C., Florida, New York, Texas, and every other major city across America.
Keep the momentum going, folks. Make every turn out count. Every horror fan who sees Death House in theaters increases the chance that it’ll expand further, and the same opportunity to see this movie on the big screen can be provided to another viewer. So much hard work and dedication went into this movie, it would be a shame to miss out on the first Expendables of Horror.
