Uwe Boll - two words that can strike fear into the heart of those who love movies...
This guy directed the ultra loud and dumber than you could possibly imagine 'House Of The Dead' videogame adaptation which is ranked in the bottom 30 movies of all time over at IMDB.
Now he turns his attention to a new movie based on a game... Alone in the Dark
"um, it's behind you"
Alone in the Dark is still perhaps considered by many gamers to be the grandfather of action/adventure games. When it was released in 1993 - I spent many student nights huddled round the PC with friends, fighting monsters and solving puzzles when we quite possibly should have been studying for our marketing degrees.
Let's hope that the movie manages to capture at least some of the games spooky atmosphere...
"no Jehovah's Witnesses are getting in here!"
