House Of The Dead (The Movie!)





Whilst out Christmas shopping today ( and I apologise right now for my lack of postage, what with the demands of the Christmas season and all...) I took it upon myself to go and buy my boys their traditional stocking filler DVDs.



"Now hold on there Father K! WTF are you talking about and what the hell has this got to do with the Saturn???" And BTW what the hell is a 'stocking filler'?" I hear you cry! OK, I'll explain! Over here in the UK and in our colony the good ol' US of A, it's a Christmas tradition to hang up a stocking (or big sock) on the fireplace for my brother in law, Father Christmas, to stuff full of little bits of funny crap, which compliment the main stash of excellent presents (for the Krishna children an Xbox 360 and some awesome games) you receive (found under the tree.)




Now this allows you to actually extend the present opening for a while longer, at little expense to your Mum and Dad... Stocking fillers are like (for example) chocolate coins, tangerines, mugs, CDRs, money boxes, socks, gloves, or any other crap that is small and doesn't cost a lot... Which leads me on to my next point...


One of the traditional 'stocking fillers' that I have always got my boys are really cheap DVDs, bought for a pound (£1) at the pound shop (dime store.) These have included such greats as Ninja movies (such as 'Master With Cracked Finger'), Blaxploitation Movies eg. 'Cleopatra Jones', Laurel and Hardy shorts, Horror B Movies such as 'She Freak' and 'King Kong vs. Godzilla', basically stuff no one else wants...

But today's Yuletide Harvest yielded the 'classic' shlock horror tittie-fest and zombat movie "House Of The Dead", apparently based on the Sega classic...uhm... "House Of the Dead"

In fact, (apparently) the whole movie was produced in close consultation with Sega, and having watched it, actually bares no relation to the game, other than when snippets of HOTD 1& 2 gameplay are flashed up between scenes... Oh! and G actually turns up with those other "dogs of the AMS..." at the end of the movie... HEY! It cost a quid, and what else are you gonna get for that financial outlay? There is some actually great fight scenes (Matrix style, but with zombies) and a cameo appearance by the great Jurgen Prochnow! I don't know where I'm going with this and the South Park 'World Of Warcraft' episode has just come on the TV, so I'm gonna sign off! Merry Christmas!

Enjoy the trailer and screenshots!

I'm suprised they can take a game like that and turn it into a movie!

Haha wow. That movie.. I never really wanted to see it, because of the really bad reviews it got. But now after seeing all those lovely tits in the screenshots, I might reconsider.

Also it reminds me a tad about the great Hong Kong zombie comedy "Bio Zombie" where they play House Of The Dead on the Dreamcast to get some tips on how to kill those zombies..

Merry Christmas to you all! :D

I only watched the bit in this film where I got to see Erica Durance's (Lois in "Smallville"'s) titties.
