The Gamers: Dorkness Rising - Special Edition - DVD

Zombie Orpheus Entertainment


Product Description

The feature film that inspired a generation of gamers! Lodge wants to finish his epic campaign against The Shadow, but his players have other ideas.

Struggling writer Lodge (Nathan Rice) isn't asking for much: he wants his gaming group - Gary (Christian Doyle), Cass (Brian S. Lewis), and Leo (Scott C. Brown) - to finish playtesting his table-top adventure, rather than killing, looting, and debauching his fantasy world. Desperate to save the integrity of his story from the whims of his players' crazy characters—a horny bard (Leo), wild sorceress (Gary), and cryptic monk (Cass) — Lodge allows Joanna (Carol Roscoe), Cass's ex-girlfriend to join the game.

With Joanna's help, the group's characters trek deep into the fantasy game world to retrieve the Mask of Death from evil necromancer Mort Kemnon (Geoff Gibbs). Will their choices in the game save their friendships in real life...or will Mort Kemnon triumph unopposed?

  1. Better than a mound of dead bards!

    I'm not a gamer but my husband and kids are and, being a gamer supporter, I have great appreciation for this movie. Good job bringing my youthful D&D memories back without the mockery.

    [Insert epic review of epicness- one that is funny, witty, intelligent and comments on the gamer existence- here]

    I'm not sure what was best- finally owning this movie again (my original copy was stolen by some fake gamer heathens), or the fact that screening it for our roommates rendered my spousedude unable to breathe. It was like listening to my mother attempting to read Dave Barry, or my dad watching AFV- twice the entertainment!

    Oh, and that same spousedude uses "waffle" in all of his gamer tags because he's a dork and this movie has corrupted him. Also, waffles are delish.

    Anyway, don't be lame. Buy this movie (or remember that "everything's better with pirates!") and you too can add +4 to your charisma!

  3. Total waffle

    The greatest rpg movie ever. Tons of cool special features only add to the greatness. And topped off with excellent customer service makes this a must buy.
