Storyline

At Guesta Verde University, the deranged Professor Curien is trying to bring back the dead, killing students for the experiment. There is an outbreak of zombies at the campus, and the government sends an NSA medical research team, formed by Dr. Alexandra Morgan, a.k.a. Nightingale and lieutenant Ellis, with a special force led by lieutenant Dalton, to try to get the zero sample from the first-generation zombie. The team has a very short time to accomplish their mission and leave the place before missiles are sent to destroy the area. However, the place is crowded with hyper sapiens and the group has to fight to survive. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Goofs

Dalton is a Sergeant/Sgt Major (from the scene at the base where the Colonel is giving them the mission brief). Henson and Bart are both Lieutenants and therefore more senior (Henson - Rodriguez addresses her as Lieutenant, Dalton - Ellis calls him Lieutenant in the last scene). Yet when the troops are entering and exiting the van, Sgt Dalton takes command. When they arrive at the college, it is Sgt Dalton that splits up the group (one of the lieutenants should have done this). When they are split up, both of the lieutenants are in one group and Dalton leads the other. In reality, if there are two lieutenants in such a small group (unlikely), each lieutenant would lead separate groups. See more »

Amazing Sequel
23 May 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I just can't believe that a sequel to an absolute rubbish film would turn out to be so good. After watching the first crappy House of the Dead I thought this one will also be the same, I rented it because I couldn't find another movie that looks good. Uwe Boll did not direct it so I was saying to myself "It shouldn't be bad as the first one". The film was much better than I expected and I have only 2 words for the make-up effects; awesome & mind-blowing definitely the best make-up for any zombie film. The story is really good about a mad scientist in a university campus whose dream is to bring the dead back to life but the virus broke out after an experiment on a dead girl so it took only one zombie to spawn an army, the special forces are sent to find the patient zero which is the original zombie from where the infection started and create an antidote to stop the plague. This is the third video game movie I've liked the other two are Resident Evil & Resident Evil: Apocalypse. I've seen it twice in my 2-day hire although I usually watch rented films only once. Do not mistake that the sequel is crap just because the first one was, House of the Dead fans won't be disappointed. Thank goodness Uwe Boll did not direct it and thank you Mike Hurst!
