Consensus: A grungy, disjointed, mostly brainless mess of a film, House of the Dead is nonetheless loaded with unintentional laughs.

Don't come looking for a story -- this is a hunt.

Here is yet another video game transferred to film with little enhancement or development.

Five minutes into the picture and I felt my inner child weeping for the future of the industry.

A derivative shock-horror exercise desperately in need of an IV.

To properly convey the jaw-dropping shoddiness of this videogame-based 'horror' 'movie,' one must approach what scientists call Absolute Stupid.

House of the Dead is a very entertaining film, but only because it's made in a such inept and unprofessional way that it's almost impossible to believe that it was shown in cinemas. [Full review in Spanish]

Takes out a moviegoer's limbic brain and cerebral cortex. All that's left functioning is the reptilian brain, droning: Kill The Things. Kill The Things...

Misbegotten horror movie adaptation of the best-selling video games.

The novelty of seeing rampaging zombies get shot in the head wears off after 40 minutes or so.
