The House of the Deadis a 1996 horror film that takes place in New York City where a mad scientist named Dr. Henry Curien unleashes zombies from an AMS experiment chamber by pressing the red "release" button where no one could see him. The chamber was where an AMS agent named Rogan Thomas had kept them. The zombies then spill out into the city and cause destruction, as Curien leads them to his mansion. Meanwhile, Curien creates some zombies of his own, as well as some killer mutants and monsters who attack Curien's DBR lab workers. Then a group of teens arrive at JFK Airport for a tour of New York's Long Island for a rave, but when they view the Curien Mansion on the outside they begin to get chased by the zombies and take refuge inside the mansion as they disguise themselves as DBR lab workers, not knowing that it actually makes things worse. Rogan Thomas and his partner Alan Roberts soon grab their pistols and take off to put an end to the situation and terminates the zombies and saves Rogan's fiancee Sophie Richards, who is a lab worker for the DBR Corperation. Rogan later finds out in the end that Alan was actually a double agent, and that he was working for Curien the whole time and had only joined the AMS just to see what they were up to. It is also revealed that Alan's real name is Alan Curien, and that he is Dr. Curien's brother. After Henry Curien gets shot in the back by another AMS agent named Jessica Williams after he pointed a magnum revolver at Rogan and Alan, Alan gets outraged and ends up firing several fatal shots at Jessica and then takes off in a jetpack his brother had. A light gun arcade game adaption was developed by Sega and was released for the arcade, Sega Saturn, and PC on October 15, 1996.
