House of Rot is a 2016 live-action horror movie, created as a tribute to the House of the Dead and Resident Evil franchises, despite not featuring a single zombie throughout the film. The film is about eight college students arriving at an abandoned mansion out in the middle of a swamp in order to film a documentary. While there though, a rain storm starts, and the rising waters sink their car, forcing the students to stay in the mansion until the rain stops. However, black rot starts to slowly surface throughout the house, as slowly the teens are picked off one by one. While there, the students come across other people, including a sixteen-year old who has apparently been stuck in the house for days, and three deputies, who while on patrol, were locked in the house.
