House of the Dead, The (2003) - Synopsis ImageIt's Spring Break and college co-eds Cynthia (Sonya Salomma), Greg (Will Sanderson) and Karma (Enuka Okuma) just want to party. When they learn about a Halloween rave happening on a remote island in the Florida Keys from Greg's best friend, Simon Cruz (Tyron Leitso), they rush to recruit their heartbroken roommate, Alicia (Ona Grauer), to join them. Reluctantly, she agrees, but by the time they arrive at the party boat, it's already left for the island.

Not willing to accept defeat, Simon pays the hard-as-nails boat captain, Victor Kirk (Jurgen Prochnow), to charter his vessel, the Lazarus, to take them to the rave. Pursued by the coast guard, Kirk barely eludes his nemesis, Jordan Casper (Ellie Cornell), and reaches shore safely.

But when they arrive on the island, they find it completely deserted. As they search for the missing ravers, they encounter mysterious creatures which attack them. Seeking refuge in a spooky house, built along the shore of the island, the terrified students encounter Alicia's ex-boyfriend, Rudy (Jonathan Cherry), and his friend, Hugh (Michael Eklund), two of the only survivors of a horrible melee which took the lives of everyone at the rave. Unable to believe Rudy's story of bloodthirsty zombies, Hugh plays back a videotape which shows an onslaught of the deadly creatures devouring the ravers during the party.

Hoping to escape from the island alive, they make a run for the charter boat, but Captain Kirk has problems of his own as strange, mutated beasts begin to climb onboard and attack the ship, while the surviving ravers make a desperate attempt to reach the boat. Fleeing to shore, as the boat is overrun by zombies, they nurse their wounds only to be confronted with more deadly creatures.

Attempting to make it back to the house to seek sanctuary from the growing number of zombies, they square off against more of the killer beasts prowling through the woods. Staving off an attack, they make it safely into the house where they search for any weapons they can use against the encroaching zombies...
