It's spring break and these college kids just want to party. When they charter a boat to take them to a rave on a nearby island, they find it completely deserted, except for the bloodthirsty zombies that have taken it over. A frantic search begins for weapons to use against the encroaching killers because, as nighttime falls, they realize that their only hope for survival is to witn the final the HOUSE OF THE DEAD.

1.0 out of 5 stars Lord have mercy! March 30, 2004
There are people out there who will greenlight anything! That is the only explanation I can offer as to why the House of the Dead movie exists. And that's only scary part to the whole movie. It's so bad you'll go off movies forever. I seriously wanted to switch this off and turn the TV over to the Paint Drying channel but I was bound by my word to suffer the whole thing. I don't know why I do these bad things to myself.
As if it matters, here's the basic jist of the 'story'. A group of twenty-somethings are so desperate to go out to some island in the Pacific Northwest (Canada actually, because it's cheap) for the 'Rave of the Century' (which consists of about 8 people and un-raving music) that they pay some craggy old fisherman $1000 to take them there after they miss the main ferry. That's gotta be some rave to be worth all that dough! The fisherman warns them that the island is also known as the Island of the Dead (hang on-I thought this was HOUSE of the Dead?) and that they are all doomed yadda yadda yadda.
First faults here. Why would a tiny little rave (of the Century my foot!) be held on some remote island? Why would anyone willingly pay loads of money to get it? Why pay even more to the craggy old fisherman to take them back when they could just come back with the others?
Once they arrive they discover that the rave (which consists of about 2 tents, a small stage and a port-a-john) has been smashed, there's blood everywhere and no one is around. What would any rationally thinking person do? Run for their lives of course. But no, these clueless, obviously blind people decide to go look for them. Soon enough they discover an old ramshackle house that's 50 times as big on the inside as it is on the outside.

1.0 out of 5 stars The WORST zombie movie ever made.0 stars December 23, 2004
A Kid's Review
This terrible movie is so poorly made that it goes down in cinema history as the WORST zombie movie ever made.The plot(if there was one) was a bunch of teens visiting an island and battling zombies.This is a very stupid,horrible time-waster.

Here's the reason this movie is so terrible

1.The zombie's makeup,it looks like toilet paper and ketchup(the fake blood at Wal Mart looks state-of-the-art compared to this)

2.The acting,it is so atrocious, you'll wish these amateurish actors/actreses would die off soon.

3.The slow-motion scenes:This really messed up the movie,Like the scene were all the teens were fighting and the scene was slow-motion was this The Matrix part 4 or something.

4.The plot:The plot and storyline was so badly written that a little kid could write a better script with a piece of toilet paper.

5.The editing:Some of the worst editing ever.Scenes from the video game should up in quick flashes and the editors didn't edit the movie well.

and the casting:Truly horrible cast especially the captain from DAS BOOT.What a shame.

Don't ever buy,rent,or steal this movie.Burning every copy of this montrosity would help the world.

1.0 out of 5 stars Award for WORST MOVIE of all time March 7, 2006
By Duxman
Being big zombie fans, my girlfriend and I walked into this movie with high expectations. Mistake #1 - especially since this is directed by Uwe "best director ever" Boll. This movie which encompasses scenes from the video game of characters spinning around to die and the screen turning red - is quite possibly the worst movie of all time.

In fact, it has been 10 years since I walked out of a movie theatre and we did walk out of this pile of garbage. I will - the memory could be erased from my mind. Do not waste your time. Boycott all of Uwe's movies before its too late. Run, run fast from this DVD. The sequel is decent.

1.0 out of 5 stars I'm Braindead after watching this sorry movie November 18, 2004
I want to know if the reviewers who gave this movie a 3,4,5 rating saw the same movie I did. This movie does not deserve a rating above zero, but being that it has to be rated anything above a 1 is too much!!!

There is nothing in this movie that is good at all. House of the Dead is actually a Sega video game, that was made into a movie. Just watch the game while you play it, trust me it's better then this cinematic piece of garbage. House of the Dead starts off with some young adults trying to go to an island where a wild rave is. What they don't know is the rave has suddenly been taken over by some relentless zombie. The party goers are warned that they should not go to the island, but they flash $1,000 bucks and the captain is willing to take them. During the party scene you get to see some scantily clad women, and a topless woman that has nothing to do with the plot at all. Just some senseless eye candy for the fellas. When the young group arrive to the Rave they wonder if they missed the party and go in searching to see if they can find anyone.

The action is somewhat okay, but the lines are so corny all I could do is groan. "Who said size does not matter" as the captain hold his weapon of choice. "Mine is bigger", officer bad actress would retort. I told you corny lines!!! When Howard's character is trying to give one of the female characters a cross for protection her line is "It's all right I'm on the pill" pathetic!!!!

Mixed in the story line is something weak about a slave ship. There is this guy who wants to live forever. He created some kind of formula for that purpose, but the downside is you will be a stupid, kung-fu fighting, quick moving zombie.

5.0 out of 5 stars House of the Dead
Certainly not for kids but even a 16 year old could probably handle it due to the obvious video game sequences. Not as good as a Rob Zombie film, but certainly worth watching. Read more
