One of Uwe Boll’s first major English-language releases, Blackwoods came out in 2002 and stars Patrick Muldoon and Clint Howard. This direct to video release is the tale of a young man who is haunted by a tragic accident he caused years before. On vacation with his girlfriend, he falls prey to a deranged family, and must fight for his life in the Blackwoods. Boll wrote and directed this film, and it currently holds an 11% “rotten” rating on Rotten Tomatoes, making it his “best” movie.
Loosely based on the Columbine High School shootings, Heart of America is about a fictional school shooting in the suburban Riverton High School. Released in Germany and Canada in 2002, this film was co-written and directed by Boll. The dramatic Heart of America is a bit of a departure for Boll, as many of his prior films had been horror or suspense-based, and the majority of his films following Heart of America have been adapted from video games (with varying degrees of success).
Panned by critics worldwide, 2003’s House of the Dead is an adaptation of an arcade game of the same name (and Boll’s first of many video game adaptations). Consistently ranked among the all time worst video game movies, House of the Dead is about a group of young adults who travel to an island for a rave. Upon reaching the island, they find that it is infested with zombies and that most everyone has been killed. Over the course of the film, most of the group is either killed by zombies, or sacrifices themselves to save the others. In the end, only two survive.
Boll’s third video game adaptation, 2005’s BloodRayne, was met with distaste from critics, fans, and even Michael Madsen, one of the stars of the film! The plot focuses on Rayne, a half human/half vampire (called a Dhampir), who wants to avenge her mother’s rape by her father, Kagan, king of the vampires. Two vampire hunters from the Brimstone Society (who work to defeat vampires) persuade her to join their cause. Boll produced and directed BloodRayne, which was nominated for six Golden Raspberry Awards and, sadly, won none of them.
2007’s Seed was written and directed by Uwe Boll and released in Canada. Seed is the story of a psychopathic killer named Seed who likes to film the torture of his victims. Seed somehow manages to survive both his execution by electric chair and being buried alive, and goes on a killing rampage, targeting everyone who was involved with his death sentence. Boll used animal abuse and torture footage from PETA in the opening credits, and donated 2.5% of his profits from the film to the organization.
