One monster with extra cheese, hold the plot.

Oh boy did this movie make me really mad. If it had been a zombie movie I could have enjoyed it more than I did but no, it's a "game movie." The only connection to the game was a bunch of topless girls dancing under a "Sega" banner.

Really? Is that it, is that your grand investment? When a director thinks that nudity is a redeeming value in an otherwise crap film, that makes my blood boil Hatred. None of the game movies Boll has made touch on the games at all, like he can do them better. Alone in the Dark had monsters and I still couldn't sit through it.

This was a great review Andrew...something about this one just made it stand out....perhaps it was the pain you were feeling as you wrote it.

I once played this game at the arcade I believe.  This is a bad excuse of a video game to movie adaption or just a movie in general.    Why don't video game movies ever work out?!  Silent Hill was ok, but still.  I hope the movie adaption of BioShock turns out good because that is a great game that can be made into a great movie.  They have the writer for Sweeney Todd and the director for Pirates of Carribean working on it, maybe it will be good?

As for this film, it is best to forget it exists and focus on more interesting movies that involve zombies, like Dead Alive or Night of the Living Dead.  Let's move on.

Yeah! I had forgotten about this piece of crap! That Liberty character was f-in' ridiculous! And do you remember how they interspersed actual scenes from the game with the movie during the last few action scenes? Ridiculous, ridiculous movie!!

I agree with Picket. This movie was FUN. It was incredibly stupid, but it had a lot of unnecessary nudity (we like that), action, and the best line in the history of cinema:
"Rudy: You did all this to become immortal. Why?
Castillo: To live forever!"
Uwe Boll is today's Ed Wood.

Cthulu made Ed Wood cry.


I'd say there's a special place in hell for Uwe Boll, but Satan threatened to sue me for libel.


When shooting wrapped, they beat up some homeless people, made some kitten pies and fed them to orphans...

this movie is so plain.
They even put game footage in between scenes.
Unless you like Uwe Boll, there no reason to this movie.
He just didn't even try.

The same could be said for House of the Dead 2.

CalrissianFoxxSteele - If you like Uwe Boll, then you ARE Uwe Boll.

Hands down one of the best reviews, Andrew. I wish I knew about this site sooner.

Why was this titled "House of the Dead?"  Well, "Zombie Island Rave Massacre" does not have the same ring to it, nor a guaranteed fanboy audience.
I'd watch a movie called Zombie Island Rave Massacre.  ... Actually I'd probably buy it, just so I can tell me friends I have a copy of  Zombie Island Rave Massacre in my best dramatic voice.
