That this film even exists is either an example of hearteningly boundless optimism or extreme stupidity. The first installment, based on the video game of the same name, was ranked as’s second worst reviewed film of all time. Considering that the website pools all reviews, from the amateur to the professional, to come up with a rating, this is something of an achievement. It means part one of Alone In The Dark was unanimously panned the world over.

The sequel follows a group of witch hunters trying to track down a witch named Elisabeth Dexter. None of the original lead actors are back, perhaps having had their fill of ridicule. (The original cast included Tara Reid and Stephen Dorff, so that’s easy to believe). The main role of paranormal orphan Edward Carnby is no longer played by Christian Slater, but in his place we get nobody Rick Yune. It’s not looking good.
