View Full Version : Alone In The Dark

Quick question: is this film worth watching at all? I don't mind the odd so bad, it's good type of film. You know the sort of film where you turn your brain off and just enjoy OTT silliness.

So, is Alone In The Dark worth a go for a laugh or is it just crap?

It was directed by Uwe Boll and is henceforth utterly worthless.

Unless you're being paid to watch it.

Or threatened really quite badly.

Will give it a miss in that case. Like I said, there's nowt wrong with a certain kind of bad film, but there's a line between that and just bad.

Yeah, it's not Bad Taste bad. It's just bad.

I assume you mean the 2005 one? It's an enormous basket of flaming poo. I LOVE really stupid SF/Horror movies. The plot made zero sense. I kept waiting for Tara Reid to get eaten, but it never happened :( The only redeeming qualities are: 1. Christian Slater as a bad-ass dude with Ninja Skills, 2. One vaguely amusing fight scene in a meat-packing plant, and 3. Spending the three hours after the film trying to figure out what actually happened, WHICH YOU CAN'T DO IT IS PHYSICALLY IMPOSSIBLE.

Bad Taste is about ten thousand times better than this movie (if you haven't seen Bad Taste, the plot is: Peter Jackson and his friends run around a New Zealand farm wearing stupid alien masks for two hours)

You might want to think twice about being nasty about Uwe Boll's films, else he might challenge you to a boxing match. Seriously, the man is dangerous in the ring... :)

It's really, really funny. Or at least I found it funny, watching it with a bunch of drunken Ukrainians who just screamed 'UWE BOLL!!!' whenever things got boring.

Christian Slater as a bad-ass dude with Ninja Skills,

That's it, I'm in. Is it on blu-ray?
