    interview with the misunderstood genius about bloodrayne here:
    http://filmforce.ign.com/articles/561/561872p1.html



    HOUSE Of THE DEAD was in a lot of territories a very big success. In Middle East, Russia, Spain, Thailand and South America was the movie similar to the USA and KANADA two weeks in the TOP TEN and a long time in the Video/DVD-Charts. In a lot of countries the release is coming up in summer. But in the internet are a lot of negative voices talking about the film and I wanna tell all this people that they are right and wrong.

    If you think that HOD is shit you are right in a way because it is cheesy but you are wrong in a lot of ways. First of all if you really see the move on screen or DVD you will recognize that the CINEMASCOPE look of the movie and the sound are absolutly A LIST and not one percent less quality as RESIDENT EVIL or UNDERWORLD. Second: What is the game HOUSE OF THE DEAD about ? It is a cheesy action shooter. And dont forget I made a movie out of that game. I did not made a ZOMBIE movie alone - I made a game based movie. So the game is an action shooter game where you kill zombies - and if you really compare my movie to movies like RESIDENT EVIL or UNDERWORLD then I dont know what you was waiting for? In HOD we have a lot of GORE and a lot of action. Much more as in Resident Evil. The big battle in front of the house with the MATRIX and TURN TABLE effects, over 100 blood effects and 11000 cuts in 13 minutes will be film history in a few years because in NO OTHER FILM EVER was a similar scene. Also Rodrigez or Tarantino ever made a scene like this escalating action scene in HOD.

    I really tried to make out of a teenage horror script a special new form of a videogame based movie. I'm not 100% satisfied with the result but it was the maximum what I could do with the budget and script. And what is really pissing me of is that a lot of real horrorfans (especially on Creature Corner, IMDB, Yahoo) are not able to see a difference and judge unfair. Third: also if the story/dialog is cheesy the story has no big logical problems or mistakes.

    Can you show me in HOD logical mistakes like in the remake of DAWN OF THE DEAD? How the f**k in DAWN OF THE DEAD is coming the fat woman and the other people from the inside of the truck in the mall? How they are coming later back in the tunnel from the house of the sniper?

    I write this because I read all that shit and I give my commentaries also. I startet filming as a boy and I had NO CONNECTIONS in the film industry, no nice uncle or rich parents taking care of me. I worked myself in the film industry, made movies like GERMAN FRIED MOVIE or RUN AMOK with NO MONEY and released the movies on my own, travelled to the theatres, talking to the exhibits and to the audience. That I make movies is not a result of VITAMIN B is is the result of my work and my dicipline and my talent.

    Before you all write more shit about my movies you should look THE HEART OF AMERICA for example, the movie I did before I made HOUSE OF THE DEAD and you should see ALONE IN THE DARK. After you saw this movies you should have the balls to say "Sorry about my comments!". The weak part of HOD was the story - not the directing. In August ALONE IN THE DARK is finished and this movie is way above movies like UNDERWORLD or RESIDENT EVIL. And for BLOODRAYNE what we do this summer - we have a great script from Guin Turner (she co-wrote AMERICAN PSYCHO) and we will deliver a movie way better as VAN HELSING was (much darker and more brutal).

    You have to give him credit, at least, for being the new Ed Wood.

    Oh, he did not just say his movie was better then DotD 2004!??

    How can one man by so dumb?! Surely he has seen reviews in movie mags/tv programs who ripp his movie to shreds?
    He wanted to make a cheesy horror movie? Fine, but he still failed. Look at Evil Dead, or indeed the original George A Romero movies. That's cheesy horror done right. HOD wasn't cheesy, it was just bad, poorly acted, craptacular special effects, shit camera work. It was just bad, really really bad.
    The big battle in front of the house with the MATRIX and TURN TABLE effects
    Lol, mentioning the absolute worst part of the movie as a plus point.
    It's not even fitt to be mentioned in the same sentence as Resident Evil or Underworld and those are some poor movies.

    That is so true, he is the reincarnated Ed Wood. Bumbling his way through unbelievably crap film after crap film.

    Nah Ed Wood at least had imagination, he just lacked talent and money. Herr Bollocks doesn't even have that.

    This space left intentionally blank.

    Better than resident evil?

    *sniggers*

    i dont know what world he's living in, but RE had far more gore, far more effects and did well enough at the box office to get a sequel.

    I saw the HotD movie for a laugh, i expected the worst but still was left truly appalled - most of the time they get out of doing special effects by jumping to footage of the videogame, so when a character is about to shoot a zombie in the head *bam* quickly shows some HotD footage of zombie getting shot, and then back to the film.

    i have more respect for suicide bombers than i do this guy.

    Go and see it. It is just so bad and yet great at the same time. Anyone who likes zero budget so-bad-it's-good films must catch this. SOOO stupid.

    And it has Jürgen Prochnow in it. What more reason could you need?
