Vampire Batman Returns in DC Halloween Special

Jim Dandy Jul 22, 2019

Secrets of Sinister House takes us back to Red Rain Batman just in time for Halloween.

Fifth weeks are odd beasts in the comics world. They throw off the natural rhythm of comic publishing, with one book every two or four weeks, and end up stacking some months ane leaving others barren. Fortunately, comic companies have found fun and creative ways to deal with them. Like having Bill Sienkiewicz ink a John Romita Jr. drawing of Vampire Batman from Red Rain chasing down a possibly envampired Joker.

Secrets of Sinister House is, like all of DC's seasonal anthology books, 80 pages of short stories, in and out of continuity, with mix and match creative teams that let us get introduced to some new creators and duck back into favorite continuities. Included in this anthology are:

The 15 Worst Things About The Resident Evil 2 Remake (And The 15 Best)

It wasn’t that long ago that the Resident Evil series fell out of favor with both the fans and critics alike. After the massive success of Resident 4, the developers seemed to lose sight of what made gamers fall in love with the series in the first place.

Resident Evil 5 and 6 were not well received and both games instead decided to focus on blockbuster-style action and set pieces rather than horror. Even though the games played similarly to Resident 4, they lacked any of the tension and excitement of that game.

Resident Evil 4 was a landmark title that was an influence on titles like Dead Space, Gears of War, and even the Uncharted series. Unfortunately, the cost of trying to replicate the success of the fourth title came at the price of innovation and by the time Resident Evil 5 was released it already felt old and clunky compared to newer titles.

Step into Uwe Boll's world in trailer for F*ck You All: The Uwe Boll Story

  • JoBlo
Uwe Boll is the quintessential go-to when talking about the worst directors working today, rightfully being called the modern-day Ed Wood. Between movies like Alone In The Dark, House Of The Dead, Bloodrayne and In The Name Of The King the man has more movies that have gotten under 10 percent on Rotten Tomatoes than any filmmaker should, and he’s become the scorn of movie bloggers everywhere. He’s not exactly one to stay quiet about his work or criticisms of it, but the...

‘F— You All: The Uwe Boll Story’ Trailer: The Infamous Director Reflects On His Career Of Offending Audiences

If you are a horror fan from the early-2000s, you’re probably familiar with the infamous Uwe Boll. The filmmaker rose to prominence in the decade as the go-to guy for low-budget horror adaptations, with films like “House of the Dead,” “Alone in the Dark,” and “BloodRayne.” However, after a string of bad reviews (more like vicious reviews), the director decided to steer into controversy with a string of films that were meant to shock, offend, and generally piss people off.

July 31st Blu-ray & DVD Releases Include Village Of The Damned (1960), Piranha II: The Spawning

Before we roll into August, we have one last round of July home media releases to look forward to, even if this week is one of the lightest weeks I’ve seen all year, with only three horror titles making their way home on Tuesday. Scream Factory is giving Piranha II: The Spawning a Blu-ray release, Vinegar Syndrome has resurrected The House of the Dead on Blu-ray, and Warner Archive has given Village of the Damned (1960) an HD overhaul as well.

The House of the Dead

Four tales of intrigue and horror await anyone brave enough to enter the House Of The Dead... When a philandering husband accidentally finds himself lost during a rainstorm, he's taken in by an elderly mortician and is forced to learn the ghastly origins of four freshly arrived corpses: a scornful teacher whose students teach her a fatal lesson, an amateur filmmaker with a deadly muse,

All 43 Video Game Movies Ranked, Including ‘Rampage’ (Photos)

  • The Wrap
All 43 Video Game Movies Ranked, Including ‘Rampage’ (Photos)
Video game movies have a bad reputation because, well, there are very few that we’d call “good.” At their best, at least so far, the big screen versions of video games have been fun and trashy entertainment. At their worst, however, they’re as bad as anything else we’ve ever seen in a movie theater.

So let’s rank ‘em!

41. “Postal” (2008)

The pinnacle of director Uwe Boll‘s string of horrendous video game movies (he has five that qualify for this list by getting theatrical releases somewhere), but to be fair it’s probably still a better work of art than the game it’s based on.

40. “Alone in the Dark” (2005)

House of the Dead” briefly tricked us into thinking Uwe Boll was a camp master, but his next video game movie, “Alone in the Dark,” was such an incomprehensible slog that I have never been able to

Director Uwe Boll Gets Crazy and Goes Off on Dwayne Johnson's Rampage Movie and Threatens to Sue

Uwe Boll, the filmmaker who has brought us a slew of films that a lot of people think are terrible such as BloodRayne, In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale, Far Cry, House of the Dead, and more, is completely pissed off at Dwayne Johnson's big screen adaptation of the classic video game Rampage. He's so raging mad that he is threatening to sue Warner Bros.

So, why is Uwe Boll so pissed off? Because he also made a movie called Rampage. It has nothing to do with this movie, but the fact that it has the same title has made him go crazy!

Fuck this new fake Rampage movie. Uwe Boll is going to sue Warner Bros. asshole. Totally serious. Will update soon.

New House Of The Dead arcade game coming from Sega

Matthew Byrd Jan 16, 2018

Zombie shooter sim House Of The Dead is returning to arcades, as Sega announces Scarlet Dawn...

There's nothing quite like a House Of The Dead arcade game. Try as they might, the many console ports of the franchise haven't been able to replicate the magic of a true House Of The Dead arcade experience.

It seems that Sega might just agree with that sentiment as they've just announced that they are developing a brand-new House Of The Dead arcade game.

It's called House Of The Dead: Scarlet Dawn, and you can play it at Sega Akihabara Building 3 in Tokyo from January 19th to January 21st. Sega has not announced any plans to expand the availability of this game beyond that initial limited release.

Typing Of The Dead: the world’s best ever typing tutor

Simon Brew May 9, 2017

From on-rails shooter House Of The Dead came the finest typing tutor videogame of all time...

When Sega first released The House Of The Dead into arcades in 1996, and subsequently onto the much-loved Dreamcast console a year or two later, there were few signs that it would give mutate and give Mavis Beacon a run for its money. The original game – and its sequels - was an on-rails light gun shooter. You pointed your pretend gun at the screen, you shot zombies, stress melted away almost as fast as the coins left your pocket. Until it got to the really hard bits and boss battles. Subsequent sequels would follow a similar pattern, until enthusiasm for zombie-blasting lightgun games seemed to peter out.

But before it petered out, it took one of the strangest left turns in videogaming history (I don’t say that lightly), as House Of The Dead

Dominic West Will Play Lara Croft's Dad In The Tomb Raider Reboot

Today we learned that one my favorite television actors, Dominic West, is joining the cast of the rebooted Tomb Raider franchise. You probably remember him best from The Wire, where he played Jimmy McNulty, the protagonist of the show and a character with many personal and intriguing demons. He stamped his mark on society with this character because The Wire is considered one of the best written shows of all time, and the last time I remember West was in the only decent Punisher movie ever made where he played the iconic Jigsaw.

According to THR, West will be playing Lord Richard Croft, the father of Lara Croft in the upcoming Tomb Raider reboot. This role was originally played by Jon Voight in the Angelina Jolie Tomb Raider movies a decade ago. We know Voight is Jolie's father in "real life," and while West can't claim that over the current

Uwe Boll Is Retiring From Film, And No One Is Sad

In a move that hardly makes a lick of sense from any perspective, Uwe Boll announced that he’s retiring from the world film.

Now, this is a strange turn of events for many reasons, but it takes on some new spins because what he said is –

The market is dead, you don’t make any money anymore on movies because the DVD and Blu Ray market worldwide has dropped 80 per cent in the last three years. That is the real reason; I just cannot afford to make movies. I can’t go back to student filmmaking because I have made so many movies in my life, and I can’t make cheaper and cheaper movies at my age. It’s a shame. I would be happy to make movies but it is just not financially profitable.

Of course, what he means is that the market has dried up to

Writer and Director Uwe Boll Is Retiring from Filmmaking

If you're familiar with Uwe Boll then you know he's a filmmaker who has made a lot of notoriously bad films in his career. He's mostly known for his terrible video game adaptations. Some of the films that he's made include House of the Dead, Bloodrayne, Far Cry, Rampage, Assault on Wall Street, and In the Name of the King.

Well, for those of you who enjoyed trashing the director and his films, you'll be happy to know that he's announced his retirement. While speaking with Metro, Boll explained that he can no longer afford to make the movies that he wants to make.
