Attack of the Killer News: Uwe Boll announces new video game adaptation

Infamous director acquires the rights to Zombie Massacre for his next release

Notorious German film-maker Uwe Boll is gearing up for his next video game adaptation after acquiring the rights to the 1998 Amiga title Zombie Massacre.


The 46-year-old will not be occupying the director’s chair on the new feature, however, handing the reins to his Eaters directorial team of Marco Ristori and Luca Boni, according to horror site

Boll is the director of a number of famously bad movies based on computer games, including House of the Dead and Alone in the Dark, both of which feature on IMDB’s Bottom 100 list, and was petitioned to retire from movie-making in 2008.

Not one to take such criticism lying down, Boll has previously retaliated by publicly inviting his detractors to step into a boxing ring with him.


Zombie Massacre was a clone of Id Software’s mega-successful first-person-shooter Doom, which is being reimagined for release on the Nintendo Wii. The game itself involved running through 3D environments and massacring zombies with a plasma gun. Check out some in-game footage below:
