Director Uwe Boll Retires From Filmmaking, Says ‘The Market Is Dead’

Director Uwe Boll Retires From Filmmaking, Says ‘The Market Is Dead’

"Director Uwe Boll is best known for his many poorly-received video game film adaptations — 'House of the Dead,' 'Alone in the Dark,' 'BloodRayne' etc. — as well as the numerous negative reviews he has received over the years."

Boll explained, “The market is dead. You don’t make any money anymore on movies because the DVD and Blu-ray market worldwide has dropped 80 per cent in the last three years. That is the real reason; I just cannot afford to make movies.”

He has directed 30 feature films. Few received wide theatrical releases, but seven of them are rated at Metacritic with the highest score being 30/100.

He actually announced his retirement a year ago, but I missed it.
