Alone in the Dark Movie based on the game

I don't know whether this has been posted or not yet.

But I found this: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0369226/

Quote:
Plot Outline: Based on the video game, Alone in the Dark focuses on Edward Carnby, a detective of the paranormal, who slowly unravels a mysterious events with deadly results.
Wasn't this Freds game or I just may be mistaken

To me this is really big; for Fred to have a movie made after his game, I mean there aren't too many movies based on games (even though they are growing), and picking Alone in the Dark seems like picking a needle out of a haystack, because there are alot of games out there, and it never appeared to me as making a movie out of.

IT was made a long time ago and sucked just about as bad as any other video game adaptation.

As for Frederick, I don't think that many people ever gave him credit for participating in the making of the game.

A bit like house of the dead movie.

Why does it say 2005, Is it a newer version?

It was made very recently, it came out early this year.

However it does suck, and wasnt based on any of the games, let alone the first.
It was made by "uwe boll", a mysterious chap that makes bad movies, lose's shitloads of money...and yet still gets handed lots of liesences to make more from.
Ironicaly, his movies got higher rateings (higher as in 5/10) before he started using game liesences.

I am sure its a tax scam or something

More importantly, few even give AitD credit as inventing a game genra.

There was a small rant in the latest issue of edge about it though
(I love the fact that Fred or his games are still mentioned or discused often in the british press).

Id have to buy it first ;p
I'll get it tommorow.

Its just a small rant half way though a section at the back. But its worth adding to the LBA media archieve collection.
(along with some other stuff I scanned ages ago... *glares at Choasfish*)

This is this (let's hope I won't get banned)

I doubt you can model something from such a small picture.

I'd like to see that!

I have the AitD movie on my desk atm, waiting for me to see it...
And AitD4 (the game) really sucks a lot of things imo. Played it for a little while but it was so bad I stopped playing. I noticed the same characters of AitD4 are used in the movie so I'll see if it has the same story.
