House of the Dead, The : Movie Review

House of the Dead, The (2003)"House of the Dead," as many of you know, is the $12 million film adaptation of the popular Sega p.o.v. shooting game, noteworthy for it's over-the-top zombie action and plentiful "jump" scares. I'm not as up on the "mythology" of the game to report on how consistent the film is, so I can get that out of the way up front.

I do feel a certain familiarity with the game having seen the film, seeing as how there are multiple clips from the game jarringly integrated into the film itself incessantly. Now, I've seen video games that incorporated movie clips into them, but films incorporating game clips? Chalk this idea up to the "inanities that should've been shot down in the planning stages" category.

See for full review.
