Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Christian Slater and Stephen Dorff, the reigning princes of Hollywood schlock, join forces in this brain-dead adaptation of a popular video game."
‑ J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader
"Maybe the only people who can explain this flick's nonsensical plotline are those who squandered their youth mastering the Atari video game on which it's based."
‑ Chuck Wilson, L.A. Weekly
"The horror. The hor-ror!"
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"There's nothing even remotely entertaining about this film -- audiences should stay home and play the original (or one of its numerous sequels) on Playstation instead."
‑ Ethan Alter, Film Journal International
"Eu devia ter suspeitado de algo quando meu aparelho de DVD pareceu se recusar a rodar este filme. E posso jurar que ele pediu um Cepacol depois que a tortura chegou ao fim."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"Any chance for suspense is thwarted by gratuitous violence, heavy-metal-propelled action sequences and laughably flat dialogue between characters who are barely more developed than in the Atari version."
‑ , Time Out
"The garish editing and stilted, exposition-only dialogue induce the frisson of an America's Most Wanted re-enactment that pays unexpected, sidesplitting returns."
‑ Benjamin Strong, Village Voice
"Lame monster movies like this adaptation of the popular Atari video game are scary for all the wrong reasons."
‑ Mark Halverson, Sacramento News & Review
"better than expected, but, considering the reputation of its author, this isn't much of an achievement"
‑ Dragan Antulov, Draxblog Movie Reviews
"This is pretty close to one of the worse movies that I've ever seen and having to recap it is making my brain bleed.."
‑ Kamal 'The Diva' Larsuel, 3BlackChicks Review
"A violent and incomprehensible piece of gibberish."
‑ Rex Reed, New York Observer
"When the giant, intelligent bees of the future sift through the ashes of our civilization, they will find Alone in the Dark, and they will understand. It's so bad it's postmodern."
‑ Scott Brown, Entertainment Weekly
"The late Gene Siskel once devised a simple method of measuring a film's worth: 'Is this film more interesting than a documentary of the same actors having lunch?' 'Alone in the Dark' doesn't come close to matching that standard."
‑ Rossiter Drake, San Francisco Examiner
"Alone in the Dark pourrait figurer dans un dictionnaire en exemple frappant de ce que signifie insipide."
‑ Louis-Jérôme Cloutier, Panorama
"As long as director Uwe Boll is given money to make films, we are guaranteed at least one unintentionally uproarious gut-buster a year."
‑ Bill Clark, FromTheBalcony
