The Horror Geek presents: Yes, there's an Alone in the Dark II. God apparently hates us all

Mike Bracken's picture

I'm not sure why anyone would feel the urge to make a sequel to one of the worst films in recent history (Uwe Boll's Alone in the Dark), but that's exactly what's happening and I've got the trailer to prove it (Thanks to the mighty Dread Central).

What's even more puzzling is why you'd make a sequel to a terrible film that is essentially universally despised, change the actors and story, and yet keep the title. Christian Slater and Tara Reid are gone and the only real tie to the original movie (which was based on a video game series) is that Edward Carnby is still the main character. If that's your only real tie to the original series, you'd probably be better off just doing a brand new standalone film. I guess this proves that even bad publicity is better than no publicity at all. I can see no other reason to tie yourself to anything directed by Uwe Boll.

Anyway, I'm probably gonna wind up watching this thing (and hating myself as soon as it starts) because it's got Bill Moseley, Danny Trejo, and Lance Henriksen in it. Those three guys are cool enough to get me to watch just about anything and I don't see that changing any time soon. Donald Pleasence had the same affect on me—and while I was burned by many a bad flick with Dr. Loomis skulking around in it, I kept going back for more.

We'll all find out how bad Alone in the Dark II is when it debuts on DVD this January 26th.
