You’d be hardâ€“pressed to find actual fans of Uwe Bollâ€”the director behind such video game adaptations as House of the Dead, Bloodrayne, and Farâ€“Cry, not to mention many othersâ€”and sometimes it would seem that that’s just the way the Germanâ€“born filmmaker prefers it.
Now Boll is getting involved with the living dead, with a new movie called Zombie Massacre. It’s based on a 1998 Amiga computer video game (seen here; not sure why all of the “zombies” look like Sammy Hagar) along the same lines as Doom that’s also called Gloom 4.
Boll won’t be directing the film, howeverâ€”that job will be handled by Marco Ristori and Luca Boni, the duo behind the Italian horror, Eatersâ€”he’ll only be producing this one.
As you can tell by the image above (and by the full poster seen by heading to the source link below), the zombies look like Freddy Krueger and those psycho inbred things from Wrong Turn had an adorable little baby…which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. I’m a little unsettled by it.
It’s currently unclear when the movie will get moving and be released.
