House of the dead 2Have you seen the first House of the Dead? The big screen adaption of the popular video game which turned out to be one of the worst movies ever created (check the imdb bottom 100 of all time). Even though the first film didn't make it's modest budget back, they've decided to greenlight a sequel... but why? Well, cast and crew from House of the Dead 2 held a panel at Comic-Con to explain. In attendance were writer/producer Mark Altman, director Mike Hurst, director of photography Raymond Stella (Escape from New York), actors Ed Quinn (Starship Troopers 2), Emanuelle Vaugier (Wishmaster 3), Ellie Cornell, and Cam Powell.

And they did the only thing they could do... admit that the first film was horribly bad, and tried everything they could to distance this film from its predecessor. Altman stated that the intent of the panel was to get the crowd excited to see House of the Dead 2, adding "as hard as that will be." The small room was only filled a third to capacity. Altman and actress Cornell are the only one of two survivors to make it to the second film.
