HOUSE OF THE DEAD (funny version)

Year of Release2003
DirectorUwe Boll

What happens after the immense failure that was the house of the dead movie (click the link for that review)? One would have thought the director would have crawled into a hole and died (or at least committed the most honourable act left to him … seppuku). But no. He re-released House of the Dead funny version as parody of the original version.

This time the movie has stupid little captions pasted over everything. Gotta hand it to him. At least the guy can take the piss out of himself. ┬áTo be honest i’ts still shit, but it’s a much higher standard of shit than the original and now falls into the ‘almost watchable’ class of films.

Still no real plot and a very ‘stock standard’ film (well to be honest no part of this film can really be called ‘standard’) with little to no acting credibility. At least now, with the additional captions, new footage we can all have a laugh at the film and its many plot holes. Strangely enough some additional footage taken from the video game and haphazardly pasted into the onscreen action, really steps things up a notch. Now with this version we’re kind of laughing with them and not at them. Kind of, but not really.
