Island of the Dead (2000) - News Poster

(2000 TV Movie)


‘House of the Dead’ is pretty much the worst thing ever

House of the Dead

Written by Mark A. Altman and Dan Bates

Directed by Uwe Boll

Canada, Germany, USA, 2003

Over the course of the last century during which film has been a medium, there have been a lot of entries that have demanded the question: just how the hell did this film get made? There is, of course, the floating head epic Zardoz, starring a ponytailed Sean Connery. There’s the disastrously bad, yet endlessly meme-worthy remake of The Wicker Man, with the strangest Nicholas Cage performance ever (which is really saying something). And there is the mind-numbingly, soul-quakingly, unintentionally hilarious mess of The Room.

Sharing in that company of unfortunates, is the absolute worst video game adaptation of all time (which again, is really saying something). House of the Dead is a film so bad that it single-handedly, and bafflingly, launched the schlock heavy career of the infamous Ed Wood wannabe,

Survival of the One-Sheet Poster

Check out the latest poster for George Romero’s “Survival of the Dead”. I liked the original title, “Island of the Dead” better. “Survival of the Dead” just sounds like, well, that George is running out of title ideas. Off the coast of Delaware sits the cozy Plum Island where two families are locked in a struggle for power, as it has been for generations. The O’Flynn’s, headed by patriarch Patrick O’Flynn (Kenneth Welsh) approach the zombie plague with a shoot-to-kill attitude. The Muldoons, headed by Shamus Muldoon (Richard Fitzpatrick), feel that the zombies should be quarantined and kept ‘alive,’ in hopes that a solution will someday be found. The O’Flynn’s, who are clearly outnumbered, are forced to exile Patrick by boat to the mainland, where he meets up with a cynical band of soldiers, headed by Guardsman Sarge (Alan Van Sprang). They join forces and return to the island,

New Clips: Ninja Assassin & Survival of the Dead

Two new clips have appeared online for two upcoming films: Ninja Assassin and Survival of the Dead. Assassin hit theaters before the end of the year, while Survival is supposed to hit sometime this year, so thankfully there’s not that long left to wait until we get to see them. And Screen Rant has the two new clips to wet your appetite for both movies.

Ninja Assassin

This is one of those action movies that looks to fall back and rely on its kick-ass action (fighting) sequences to carry it when other elements may not be as strong (acting, for example). But that’s sometimes okay, if the action is good enough, that is. And going by this clip, as well as the official trailer, I don’t think that’s going to be a problem in the slightest. Check out the badass Ninja Assassin clip below:


Wow, there

Attack Of The Canuck Zombies!  First Trailer For Romero’s ... Of The Dead Arrives!

I’m really not certain why they’re not just calling the new George A Romero film Island Of The Dead - since that’s clearly what it is - rather than insisting on referring to it as ... Of The Dead but no matter. While in Sitges late last year I had the opportunity to meet legendary effects man Greg Nicotero, who at the time was spending his evenings on the phone with Romero who for his part was back in my home town of Toronto at the time, just launching principal photography on the latest of his zombie pictures. Given the extremely tight timeline I have to assume that was has just been released by international sales outfit Voltage Pictures is dominantly raw footage - no way this has had time to go through a full post-production process - but the very first trailer for Romero’s latest has just been released.

A still for Romero's Island Of The Dead

While admittedly most of us are not holding our breaths for Romero's next which is apparently a sideline story to Diary of the Dead, we're still going to watch whatever the master does, so here's a still copped from USA Today.

"In the sequel the Diary continues. Our heroes, trapped in the mansion where we left them, battle waves of ravenous zombies, barely escaping alive. In search of a safe place to settle, they commandeer an abandoned ferry and sail to a deserted island, only to find that it is already populated by a civilization of the dead. Told in the same first-person style as part 1, the next episode of the saga is a violent siege set in the middle of nowhere, a desperate struggle for survival, and peace, between two tribes: the living and the living dead."

You can find the single still after the break.
