For those who find horror anthologies fun then they might enjoy "House of the Dead," for being a b-picture it holds up to a point. It's interesting to note this movie is also known as "Alien Zone," which might be misleading to some. It's not about aliens it's actually about how each person dies that the morgue. The mortician tells a young man who is stranded at his funeral home about how each person had meant their demise.
The stories go as the following, the first one is about a woman who hates children which is funny because she's a teacher. The second story is about a young man who kills women while filming it, this was a least favorite story, the third story was dark and even humorous, two detectives try to one up each other to get in the Rolling Stones magazine and the last story is one about a man who gets kidnapped by an unknown source. He is kidnapped because basically to teach him a lesson because he's self centered and is mean to homeless people. The best out of the four is the first one, almost reminded of the kids from the cult hit, "The Brood." The worst is the second, it's not scary more disturbing and a rendition of trying to recreate, "Peeping Tom." The other two are just average though the third does have some laughs.
The acting isn't great but the whole anthology is on the verge of below average but for viewers who are looking for something less than glamorous this is the anthology then to watch. It has it's spooky moments while it also has it's stupid moments. Doesn't match up to "Tale from the Crypt," or "Vault of Horror," but it's intriguing. It's between a 2 1/2 to 3 star movie. A little more because horror anthologies are always to fun to watch even if they are lame.
