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

Trivia

While the soldiers are at the firing range they have taped zombie faces on the targets. One of the heads is just Paris Hilton. See more »

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 »

Marginally Better Than The First
12 May 2006 | by BHorrorWriterSee all my reviews

The original HOUSE OF THE DEAD was a joke! An insult to horror fans worldwide. Uwe Boll is and forever will be a hack in the Directors chair. There is no style or merit to his work. It is all plain, dull and over-the-top in a way that does not represent a keen and penetrating eye for Cinema.

With that said...HOUSE OF THE DEAD 2 raises the bar...slightly. The story seemed to be put together better and had a focus in mind. Borrowing elements from previous zombie flicks like DAY OF THE DEAD, 28 DAYS LATER and countless others...HOUSE OF THE DEAD 2 did not break any new ground. It did, however offer a story that was not painful to watch.
