Storyline

All Lodge wants is for his gaming group to finish their adventure. Unfortunately, they're more interested in seducing barmaids, mooning their enemies, and setting random villagers on fire. Desperate to rein in his players, Lodge injects two newbies into the distrust: a non-player character controlled by Lodge, who the power gamers immediately distrust, and the rarest gamer of all -- a girl. Can the group overcome their bickering to save the kingdom, or will the evil necromancer Mort Kemnon triumph unopposed? A parody of fantasy films and the adventure gaming community, The Gamers: Dorkness Rising is a hilarious romp through the world of sword and sorcery -- in this case, a world of exploding peasants, giant house cats, and undead roast turkeys. Game on! Written by Matt Vancil

Trivia

In the dungeon, a sign on a door the characters pass through that Sir Osric removes (apparently due to it being a trap) has letters in stencil form that say "Long Live Gygax," a reference to the author and originator (Gary Gygax) of the original Dungeons and Dragons game. See more »

Goofs

When Brother Silence says "Where's he gone?" in the fight with Mort Kemnon, Flynn puts his lute in the right hand (the one that was bitten off by Lodge's cat). However, it is back in his left hand for the shot in which the prop right arm falls off. See more »

Absolutely fantastic!
8 September 2008 | by (Minneapolis, Minnesota) – See all my reviews

Better than the original, "the Gamers: Dorkness Rising" manages to pull off a funny comedy with good acting, fine special effects, and comedy that transcends the "gamer" knowledge-base and do so on a low budget. I've seen many low-budget films that have been terrible and almost none that have been as good as their high-budget counterparts. This film blows most mainstream movies away! Parts are a bit weak (the bit with the pirates and ninjas -while funny- goes on a bit long without explanation and takes you out of the movie for a bit) but, overall, this is a very strong film.

I'm very happy to say that I bought this film as soon as I saw it and brought it home.

Any chance we can look forward to another feature Gamers movie from these guys? :)
