Yes, you read the thread title correctly. Somehow, House of the Dead, the eagerly anticipated film by about .... 1 person, has managed to get released, into the cinemas in the UK.

I mean, I would have been surprised if this film would have got a straight to video release, but being released into the cinemas is beyond a joke.

I ask all the people in the UK, DO NOT watch this film, for fear of dying of boredom in the cinema. This movie is seriously beyond a joke - I managed to watch it on a copied DVD. I don't know why I paid for it.

Please don't go to see this movie (I know I may have increased anticipation to see this movie by creating a thread), but hopefully if no one goes to see it, then it can shit bomb off the radar with not many people noticing it.

This is mainstream Hollywood horror at it's worst. And that is not me being stupid (like the posters in the Halloween Resurrection forum! :p).

Anyway, enough of my rant, let the bashing of this movie commence.

Oh, I reviewed this movie a bit ago, located here (http://sinnersnow.proboards25.com/index.cgi?board=reviews&action=display&num=1094247645) which is posted on another message board.

I honestly didn't think this movie was as bad as everyone was saying it was.I had a fun time when I saw it but the only thing I didn't like was the video game footage cutting in every once in awhile during the course of the movie.

I'll go see this, but ONLY because i have a UGC Cinema pass and so its pretty much free. I know its gonna suck ass especially since Uwe Fucking Boll made it and that whole Matrix zombies thing looks cheesy as fuck. Like i said, fuck it, its free.

at your own risk.This movie doesn't deserve to be called a horror.It is bad directed,it has bad actors and the plot makes Shaun of the Dead a scary movie.I can tell you near the ending there's a sword/kung fu duel between a girl and a zombie

I'm not surprised since it is showed your favorite horror is Session 9:rolleyes:

C'mon with all those masterpieces you could have picked (ANOES,TCM,The Shining,Psycho,The Exorcist,Hellraiser,the original The Night of the Living Dead,the original Dawn of the Dead....the list could go on and on)you like better a really mediocre movie. :(

Everyone has their own opinions on what they find scary or being the best. Personally I didn't care for Session 9 either but I respect Ncamp's opinion that it's his favourite horror film.

Sorry I like a story that I have to follow and try to understand. Im not one of those mindless people that can only like a movie if its nothing but some guy running around with a chainsaw. Session 9 made me think and I liked that. You like TCM whats that say about you? You call it a master piece, I dont. I consider that to be the red headed stepchild of the big horror franchises. I go for the underdog, so I suggest you deal with it.

Woah chill the fuck out guys, Session 9 was a good movie and if Ncamp considers it a favourite so be it. TCM wasnt exactly brilliant, it was a damn good movie but it had its flaws as do most, so do everyone a favour and stop bickering over such a stupid little thing.

I only made this thread, 'cause I was scared that because the film was released around the Halloween holiday, that people would go see this thinking it was a scary movie, when it really wasn't.

I can't even say I was entertained by how shitty it was. This movie was just all sorts of sad. I was sad that someone gave Uwe Boll the money to make this flick yet GAR, and other horror greats have a hard time getting funding. I was sad that they had the gall to call this a zombie flick. I was sad that I had wasted 2 hours of my life watching this movie, and probably becoming dumber during the process.

I was sad untill reading this little rant........

"If you think that HOD is shit you are right in a way because it is cheesy but you are wrong in a lot of ways. First of all if you really see the move on screen or DVD you will recognize that the CINEMASCOPE look of the movie and the sound are absolutly A LIST and not one percent less quality as RESIDENT EVIL or UNDERWORLD. Second: What is the game HOUSE OF THE DEAD about ? It is a cheesy action shooter. And dont forget I made a movie out of that game. I did not made a ZOMBIE movie alone - I made a game based movie. So the game is an action shooter game where you kill zombies - and if you really compare my movie to movies like RESIDENT EVIL or UNDERWORLD then I dont know what you was waiting for? In HOD we have a lot of GORE and a lot of action. Much more as in Resident Evil. The big battle in front of the house with the MATRIX and TURN TABLE effects, over 100 blood effects and 11000 cuts in 13 minutes will be film history in a few years because in NO OTHER FILM EVER was a similar scene. Also Rodrigez or Tarantino ever made a scene like this escalating action scene in HOD. I really tried to make out of a teenage horror script a special new form of a videogame based movie. I'm not 100% satisfied with the result but it was the maximum what I could do with the budget and script. And what is really pissing me of is that a lot of real horrorfans (especially on Creature Corner, IMDB, Yahoo) are not able to see a difference and judge unfair.
~Uwe Boll"

Then I couldn't stop laughing at the absurdity of it all.

Finally someone who agrees with me,I was afraid to be the only one here.

11-07-2004, 12:29 PM
Haha, Uwe Boll actually is proud of that craptastic battle outside that castle shack, 'cause it has so many cuts and all the Matrix rip-off. I actually got a headache slightly from all the damn movement.

Also, creepingmouth, believe me you are not the only one to hate this movie. You would be the only one if you loved it.

Don't tut me.

You know it's not often at all when I slam a movie, 'cause I can usually appreciate the time and effort that people have put into making their movie for us to see.

HOWEVER, this movie shown nothing of that. It was just pure shit. The fact that Uwe Boll has to defend his work and thinks that his movie will go down in history is just laughable to the n'th degree.

He thinks his film will go down in history 'cause he used crappy effects and alot of cuts in a short amount of time? My advice to him, get a better editor.

You thought the film wasn't bad, and the movie "had a good plot". Sorry, but all I can say is bullshit.

You thought the plot of teens having a rave on some random island was a good plot? It was idiotic and made teenagers look stupid. "Yea, lets have a party on an island where people will have trouble getting to..." THATS a good idea.

This film was crap. The storyline was crap, the characters were crap, the acting was... crap.

And it sucked.The hotties in here couldnt even save the film,and there were a cast full of them.

No,dont be so impressed,its an old Sean Cunningham theory.Every horror film,namely Friday the 13ths,should have a fresh pair every 7 minutes.
