Trivia

The movie version of "The House of the Dead" had next to nothing to do with its game counterpart (as all game-to-movie conversions go), but it did have an interesting twist: one of the survivors of the zombie rampage was named Curien (the villain of HOTD 1), and AMS agents Rogan and G appear at the film's end.
