Stop the Uwe Boll madness!

I hadn’t seen this before, but it cracks me up: a petition to stop Uwe Boll from making any more horrible movies.  If you don’t know who he is, look him up on the IMDB:

To:  Dr. Uwe Boll

We, the undersigned, respectfully ask that Uwe Boll give proper weight to the wishes of the video game community, the horror community, and the film going community in general and stop directing, producing, or taking any part in the creation of feature films. His distasteful handling of the subject matter and lack of acknowledgement of his failures simply cannot be abided any longer.

Mr. Boll has repeatedly shown a complete lack of comprehension regarding the videogames he has dragged, kicking and screaming, to the silver screen and his ham-fisted approach to horror has soiled future possibilities for anyone else who may attempt to bring videogames to film.


The Undersigned

Number of signatures so far?  163,000 as of this posting.  There’s also a pro- Uwe Boll petition, though it isn’t too polite to Uwe, either.  Number of signatures?  1800.

  1. Personal Demon says:

    If it’s any consolation, Uwe is pretty much washed up making big budget films, regardless of petitions. He’s been funding his films through a bizarre German tax loophole, which thankfully has expired.

  2. PD: I’m glad to hear he’s more or less washed up, but it’s still satisfying to see lots and lots of people actively say, “We hate you, Uwe!”
