Uwe Boll to Fans: “F**k You All”


Uwe BollSeems like crowdfunding isn’t working out for the German director.

Uwe Boll, notorious director of video game film adaptations such as Alone in the Dark, House of the Dead and Bloodrayne released a new video on his Youtube account, blaming everyone for his recent lack of success with crowdfunding. This comes during the last day of his current attempt to fund Rampage 3: No Mercy, a project about a fictional serial killer. The video is an uncensored tirade of cursing and dissatisfaction, mostly directed at his backers who have raised “only” twenty-seven thousand dollars of a $50,000 Kickstarter project.

Raging Boll

Boll, whose highest-rated film on Rotten Tomatoes, Assault on Wall Street scored a 25% rating has a history of controversial moves in his career. Aside from garnering a reputation for ruining video game movies, he tends to be confrontational towards his critics, which once culminated with a boxing match, dubbed “Raging Boll” featured the director, an amateur boxer, actually fighting the critics who answered the call. His criticism of other directors such as Michael Bay and Eli Roth are also well documented.

Boll’s last two attempts at crowdfunding, a $500,000 Kickstarter for Postal 2 and a $100,000 Indiegogo posting for his current Rampage project both ended without successfully funding.

    I’ve just gone and watched the whole thing… And wow… That’s dreadful. His conduct is not befitting a visionary man with a camera, but rather a coward behind a camera. To blame the people who were trying their best to back your efforts is a pitiful attempt to shift blame away from yourself.

    Interestingly, he says he has enough money to play golf until he is dead. Fair enough then… Why aren’t you paying for this yourself, Mr. Boll? Hm.

    Great post Andrew 🙂
