* TheWarSequence: There's a 10 minute sequence where our protagonists try to reach the title house and have to fight hordes of zombies to get there. It's filled with {{egregious}} usage of BulletTime and loose grasp of continuity.

A "captain Kirk" joke early on and an explicit reference to Creator/GeorgeARomero indicate that the film may actually be a subtle and deliberate SelfParody. Later a "Funny Version" of the film was released, which is a {{Recut}} consisting of [[HilariousOuttakes goofy outtakes]] and sarcastic pop-up commentary.

* {{Fanservice}}: Some nudity is shown, as usual with these kind of movies. But notably from Erica Durance, who'd later play [[Franchise/{{Superman}} Lois Lane]] in ''Series/{{Smallville}}''.

'''''House of the Dead''''' is a film adaptation of a popular light-gun game [[VideoGame/HouseOfTheDead of the same name]] directed by the infamous Uwe Boll in 2003. It flung his name into [[VideoGameMoviesSuck video game movie]] [[EstablishingCharacterMoment infamy]].

It follows a group of people going to a daylight rave held in [[IDontLikeTheSoundOfThatPlace ominiously named]] Isla Del Muerte ([[GratuitousSpanish Spanish]] for "Island of the Dead", no relation to [[Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean that one]], or [[VideoGame/DeadIsland that other one]]), who are then attacked by hordes of zombies. Gun smugglers, cops, and a [[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld hundreds-of-years-old]] undead MadScientist ex-priest are also involved.

* GenreSavvy: When Kirk encounter zombies, he simply starts shooting them without further questions. He doesn't look even ''mildly surprised.''
