Horror Film
To Use Characteristics Of Video Game ….1/11/05Alone In The Dark

Recreating stories and characters from popular video games is becoming a film industry trend. Films such as Resident Evil and House of the Dead were both based on video games.

Director Uwe Boll recently adapted the popular Atari video game—Alone in the Dark, Part IV—into the upcoming horror film, Alone in the Dark.

In the film, Detective Edward Carnby (Christian Slater) encounters paranormal phenomena while investigating the disappearance of nineteen people he grew up with in an orphanage.

Producer Shawn Williamson says, "…I think we succeeded in capturing the energy and spirit of the game while bringing a lot of the back story of [the] characters to life."

Screenwriter Elan Mastai agrees. He worked with fellow screenwriters Michael Roesch and Peter Scheerer to create a story that captures the essence of the video game. "Games are great source material…," says Mastai. "It often takes fifty hours to tell a game story, so there's real depth to that universe."

Alone In The Dark captures that universe on film and brings a new dimension to the horror genre by combining elements of paranormal suspense, thrillers, and horror.
