Adapted from the popular Sega arcade video game of the same name, director Uwe Boll's action horror effort finds a group of partying teens stranded on an island and doing battle with a new breed of unusually mobile zombies. Looking for a place to party away spring break, college students Cynthia (Sonya Salomaa), Greg (Will Sanderson), and Karma (Enuka Okuma) hear rumors of a rave on a remote island in the Seattle area. Rushing to catch the party boat, the teens pick up friends Simon (Tyron Leitso) and Alicia (Ona Grauer), but discover upon arrival at the dock that the boat has set sail without them. Offering a few dollars to a local captain to hitch a ride to the island, the teens reach their destination only to find it eerily silent with no party in sight. Things go from bad to worse when the group is attacked by a mysterious creature, and they are forced to seek refuge in an old dark house on the island shore. Subsequently running into a few familiar faces and learning to their horror that the rave had been overrun by a horde of terrifying zombies, the group must now make one final bid for survival over the course of a long, blood-soaked night. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide

If there's a movie that deserves the MST3K treatment its House of the Dead. This movie is hilariously, incomprehensibly bad. You really have to wonder what Uwe Boll was thinking (or smoking) while he made this. Everything about this movie leaves you scratching your head in awe, from the totally out of place techno/electronica soundtrack, to the hodpodge cinematography (Mr. Boll uses and re-uses every camera trick you've ever seen) and really makes you wonder things like; What is a Spanish Galleon doing off the coast of Seattle in the 18th Century? And where eaxctly is a sea-captain from Seattle smuggling arms and ammunition to? Canada?

Truly this film is an event to behold.

Not a video game player... by Emosjrny January 28, 2004 - 6:56 PM PST

Coming strictly from the point of view of a movie fan and not a gamer, to me it seems "HotD" serves only as an extended commercial for said game made with MTV-ish technology. I'm an avid zombie movie fan and I relish the release of any zombie horror movie but "HotD" fails to impress. In fact, the "house seige" in the middle of the film is a perfect example of just how mindless this numb movie is as it's like 15 minutes of zombies being slaughtered via gunshot, kung fu, hack and slash, whatever with no advancement of the plot! You've got a group of delinquent 20-somethings going to a rave and the minute a zombie or two pops up, they're suddenly waltzing around like John Rambo on crack and blasting away everything in sight! And what's up with the intercutting of real video game footage between scenes?! And how did they convince real actors like Clint Howard, Jurgen Prochnow and Ellie Cornell to participate with such a juvenile flick?! Basically, if you want to see a video game stretched to feature length regardless of any real story then this is it!
