Normally, it’s pretty hard to swallow a film based on a video game. The only time that rule is voided is when the film is a direct-to-dvd passion project. Look at Halo: Legends. Now, from the fine folks at Anchor Bay films comes a new adaptation in Dead Space: Aftermath.
Based on the 2008 third-person shooter that combined elements of horror and sci-fi, this film picks up where the game left off, and leads us into the sequel, Dead Space 2. Here’s the synopsis.
The year is 2509. The first-responder ship USG O’Bannon has arrived at Aegis VII, attempting to hold the planet together in the wake of the catastrophe that destroyed the Ishimura. But only four members of the O’Bannon crew have survived, and the catastrophe remains unchecked. What went wrong? What secrets do they hide? And what new threats have been revealed…in the Aftermath!
Starring enough sci-fi regulars to make your head spin, this flick is available on Blu-Ray and DVD January 25th to coincide with the release of the new game. Check out a brand new clip from the film after the jump.
