I remember playing AItD 3 a looong time ago. It was a great game. But if I remember correctly it was set in the late 1930's or early 40's. And there were cool drunken ghost pirates using a mansion as their base of operations. It all had a very H.P. Lovecraft feel to it (thought maybe not so terrifying). Sadly, this movie looks nothing like what I remember.

Sometimes I think the videogame industry and the movie industry has a bet going...

Title aside, there was absolutely nothing recognizeable as Alone in the Dark in that trailer...

I think that for achieveing the "alone in the dark" effect, they have to do it with low polygons models, and that strange animation those creatures had in the game (though I've played only Alone in the Dark 1 and 2 at those times...)... I liked this style then, those strange gradiented polygons... -sigh-

It's like End of Days.... by without Arnold S. to drive sales.

I like the design of the 'monster' but that's pretty much it.

Its called Gouraud shading. It was pretty much then what pixel shaders are now, lol. I miss the Alone in the Dark games too, particularly the first one. sniff.

So, are they actually crediting this as an adaptation of the game??? Seriously what did that have to do with the game, other than the title?? Funny, did you notice a single moment in that trailer that anyone was actually alone......or in more than moderate dark....lol

apparently after seeing the reactions to her famous nipple slip they re-cast her breasts as the final boss monster.
