Alone in the Dark (2005) (part 8 of 8)
Finally, we return to some aspect of the hole-riddled plot. Behind the brick wall, the team finds a laboratory. The exam tables have drawings of spines and symbionts on them. Burke points out the name tags on the tables, and one of the name tags is “E. CARNBY”. Carnby has split-second flashbacks to the kids in the orphanage, and sitting between the two electrical coils that night.
He immediately declares that it was Bureau 713 that implanted symbionts in all the orphans. How does he know that? It’s very simple, you see. The name tags are the same shape as the Bureau 713 logo. Yeah, just let that sink in for a minute.
Okay, first of all, why have name tags in the first place? Were these one-use-only exam tables? Second of all, why would you put your symbol on the beds in the first place, unless your name is Bruce Wayne?
Burke says, “Doesn’t make any sense.” That makes three times I’ve agreed with this movie.
