I just got back from seeing the Doom movie and all I have to say is “What the hell?”. Or better yet, whats with the lack of hell? They took a perfectly functional storyline monsters and turned them into resident evil type monsters. The acting was horrible, plot barely understandable and action barely passable. My suggestion, dont go see this movie. Instead buy the game (or the expansion) with the money you would have spent at the movie theater (because popcorn alone is like $8).
Fileplanet is doing a cool Halloween thing on their front page. They are listing a ton of cool demos for horror games. In case you dont get to the page in time I decided to post here what they have:
