The 41 worst video game movies of all time, ranked – CNET

1. Alone in the Dark (2005)

It should probably come as no surprise that this truly terrible Christian Slater-led film adaptation — the worst video game movie of all time — is directed by the king of bad movie adaptations, Uwe Boll.

Blair Erickson, the writer of the original Alone in the Dark script, said this to Somethingawful.com: “Thankfully Dr. Boll was able to hire his loyal team of hacks to crank out something much better than our crappy story and add in all sorts of terrifying horror movie essentials like opening gateways to alternate dimensions, bimbo blonde archaeologists, sex scenes, mad scientists, slimy dog monsters, special army forces designed to battle slimy CG dog monsters, Tara Reid, “Matrix” slow-motion gun battles, and car chases. Oh yeah, and a ten-minute opening back story scroll read aloud to the illiterate audience, the only people able to successfully miss all the negative reviews.”

Metacritic Metascore: 9 out of 100
Rotten Tomatoes: 1%
