Alone in the Dark (2005) (part 5 of 8)

Finally, Rob is attacked by one of the Skeletor-aliens. (And I’ll just go ahead and call them “skaliens” for short. It’ll make things a lot easier, trust me.) So while he’s standing there, a big CGI claw comes up behind him, grabs him by the head, and some other random appendage shoots through Rob’s head and comes out of his mouth. He goes down, and the CGI skalien, mostly hidden by shadows, stands and looks around.

Smooth editing, gang. And oddly enough, the lights are working fine here.
