Lame monster movies like this adaptation of the popular Atari video game are scary for all the wrong reasons.

The late Gene Siskel once devised a simple method of measuring a film's worth: 'Is this film more interesting than a documentary of the same actors having lunch?' 'Alone in the Dark' doesn't come close to matching that standard.

There's nothing even remotely entertaining about this film -- audiences should stay home and play the original (or one of its numerous sequels) on Playstation instead.

Christian Slater and Stephen Dorff, the reigning princes of Hollywood schlock, join forces in this brain-dead adaptation of a popular video game.

Any chance for suspense is thwarted by gratuitous violence, heavy-metal-propelled action sequences and laughably flat dialogue between characters who are barely more developed than in the Atari version.

better than expected, but, considering the reputation of its author, this isn't much of an achievement

Alone in the Dark pourrait figurer dans un dictionnaire en exemple frappant de ce que signifie insipide.

Eu devia ter suspeitado de algo quando meu aparelho de DVD pareceu se recusar a rodar este filme. E posso jurar que ele pediu um Cepacol depois que a tortura chegou ao fim.

This is pretty close to one of the worse movies that I've ever seen and having to recap it is making my brain bleed..

As long as director Uwe Boll is given money to make films, we are guaranteed at least one unintentionally uproarious gut-buster a year.

Boll's vague X-Files rip-off isn't scary or exciting, but inadvertently he's made a movie funnier than a lot of the purported comedies Hollywood cranks out.

How Uwe Boll manages to scrape together enough investment money to give wing to this type of overblown, amateurish gibberish is truly a mystery of the cosmos...

Little of Alone in the Dark makes Earthly sense, but it at least knows how to be bad in original ways.

Has just about everything a snarky bad movie lover could want--that is, except a guy and two robots sitting in the bottom right hand corner.

Remember to get your bets in early as the Razzie winner for 2005.

You start hoping that Ashton Kutcher is going to come out and tell them they're punk'd, because you just can't believe this is for real. You feel sorry for these actors...

It's never good when the audience starts laughing as soon as the movie begins -- and nothing has happened.

For as busy as this movie is, you'd think it would have more going on. Instead, it's just a big, chewy wad of badness.

It's just the most inept filmmaking you can catch in theatres right now, or probably all year long.
