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.

The Fili

Hi, my name is Matthias, I am a student of English and German, and may one day even get to teach these (if my university ever works out how to run a B.A. system). I live in a medium-sized German town few have ever heard of, and have only recently discovered the joys of suffering through horrible movies, describing them in every little... okay, let's forget about the joy and make that therapeutic effect.

    Oh my GOD! There’s a sequel???
    But then again, from the one-sentence synopsis, it might have a infinitesimal bit of potential compared to its predecessor. Witches and witch hunters sound slightly more appealing (even on a low budget scale) than poorly CGI’d aliens from a Native American netherworld. Does anyone here wish to spare me the task of actually watching the film by recapping it?
