Both are based on video games, both directed by German filmmaker Uwe Boll, and both have trailers online that you can check out. House of the Dead hits theaters on October 10th. Pre-release word (it's been released outside of North America) seems pretty bad. But it's a horror movie and it's got Clint Howard in it, so I'm looking forward to it. Trailer looks fun-cheezy. Alone in the Dark seems a bit more promising so far. It's still in production, with Christian Slater, Tara Reid and Stephen Dorff on board. The trailer's not half bad. So yeah. This is what Resident Evil caused.
