A virus breaks out at a university and people start to become zombies. After 29 days, a team of AMS scientists and soldiers are sent in to deal with the problem. But while they search, things go wrong.
This film is a prequel to all of the The House of the Dead video games. Set on an island off the coast, a techno rave party attracts a diverse group of college coeds and a Coast Guard officer. Soon, they discover that their X-laced escapades are to be interrupted by zombies and monsters that attack them on the ground, from the air, and in the sea, ruled by an evil entity in the House of the Dead...Written by

Five kinds of zombies are shown in the movie: undead crew members of the "San Christobal", other centuries-old zombies, people that were killed between 40 and a few years ago, and finally the ravers that were killed no more than 12 hours ago. See more »
(at around 17 mins) The "Lazarus V" anchors at a shore without a pier. (at around 38 mins) Later, Simon jumps from one when he tries to swim out to the boat. It's clearly a different location. See more »
The opening credits play over video of the games, from both the arcade and Dreamcast versions, begining with the famous "You must stop Curien!" scene from the game! See more »
In 2008, Lionsgate has released a Director's Cut version of the film on DVD. The film was made into a comedy with new music, alternative scenes, outtakes and several overlay-commentaries, which is the reason for the subtitle "Funny Version" on the DVD's front cover. This works remarkably well, thanks to self-ironic, exposing humor (continuity-issues, plot holes, sub-par acting performances etc. are mentioned; partly a little dumpy, e.g. when fart noises are faded in).

This is one of the worst films I've seen. The only positive thing I can say is it was so bad that is seemed comical. First off, there's no plot. The actors appear to be reading off cue cards and do the dumbest things. Such as being chased by dead people but yet wanting to go out and look for their friends. Also the zombies were terrible, no where near as fun as any of Romero's work, who gets s plug in the movie. And the dumbest part of all was they kept showing flashes of the video game in the action sequences. Like we don't get the video game is about shooting zombies. Also, all the 20 somethings some how know how to use automatic weapons and hit a target without even aiming the gun. And the way the people die is so stupid. It's like they run out of ammo so stand around waiting to be jumped on. And when cornered in front of the house they run out of ammo instead of shooting the door open, So dumb.
FINAL VERDICT: If any of these actors appear in another film, then they've been blessed with a second chance. Definitely the worst film I've seen in years. A B-movie on cinemax is better.
