Director Uwe Boll announces his retirement

Uwe Boll, director of Alone in the Dark (viewed  by many as the worst film ever made) has announced his retirement.

Boll is best known for loosely adapting video games into movies, having directed and produced a number of such adaptations, including House of the Dead, Alone in the Dark IIBloodRayne, BloodRayne II: Deliverance, BloodRayne: The Third Reich, In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale, Postal, and Far Cry. He also directed Blubberella:

It should be noted that Boll’s Rampage film series, Tunnel Rats, Stoic, Heart of America and Darfur have been mildly well received by critics.

 

Boll notes that he doesn’t make any money from his straight-to-DVD movies anymore because of Netflix and changing viewing habits. He told the Toronto Metro:

“The market is dead. With streaming everywhere there is just a big wave of movies flooding around and you have no impact. I just cannot afford to make movies.”
