Death Tunnel based on a Sick Truth

I first heard about this movie from an agent I deal with in LA and Death Tunnel sounds like a movie that can seriously scare the crap out of you. The producer recently had us sent the "Sick Truth" about death tunnel and it just is so creepy I had to share it. With some warnings of course that this is a bit creepy and our younger audience may not want to read on about "The Sick Truch Behind Death Tunnel"
One of the greatest things about Death Tunnel, was not only how the filmmakers utilized the true history of, Waverly Hills Sanatorium, but also how this monster of a building impacted the crews lives during the shoot. For co-producer and writer, Shane Dax Taylor, being a native of Kentucky and growing up entranced by the Waverly Hills mythology, was the catalyst of inspiration that compelled him to collaborate with the Booth Bros. and write a story featuring this haunted hospital.

Utilizing medical history of the disease called the white plague and it’s infected, the filmmakers wrapped a contemporary truth or scare tale around the bizarre experiments, the deaths, the paranormal sightings of the dead and most importantly, the intense
FEAR factor that this twisted infirmary generates.

After feeling the chilling presence of shooting inside Waverly Hills Sanatorium, the producers opted out of returning to Los Angeles to finish production. Instead they had the cast and crew remain at this 80-year-old decaying structure to truly complete this horror epic. The ultimate creepy finale, they set up cameras and filmed in the real Death Tunnel.

The climactic scene of the film takes the audience into a 500 ft. tunnel running below the hospital. It was called a "body chute." Tens of thousands of patients died at Waverly Hills, as their diseased bodies secretly were hoisted down this tunnel and then loaded onto a train. This was done so that the constant sight of dead patients exiting the hospital would not diminish the hope of the other patients still desperately trying to stay alive. It was essential to the filmmakers that the true history of Waverly Hills be remembered as well through this frightening horror film.

While shooting on location in the scary Kentucky Sanatorium, the film evolved into something much more startling than originally conceived. They recorded actual poltergeist (EVP’s) and were also able to capture shadowy figures and menacing
faces of the past.

Death Tunnel reveals something truly unsettling. Footage so chilling and intense, that the stills and dailies were sent out and authenticated by leading paranormal experts. Watch and Listen closely, for these frightening events are throughout the film’s final cut.

Stay tuned.. we are working on an interview or two and will bring you much more on what sounds to be a fantastically creepy movie! http://www.moviesonline.ca/movienews_4513.html
