Uwe Boll's Alone in the Dark Directors Cut Coming in September!

No, I'm not making this up! You can bet, we're going to review this when it comes out.

Bwahahahahaha!! Seriously, what the hell do we need this for? Lionsgate Home Entertainment will re-release Uwe Boll's abomination Alone In The Dark (review) in a new Unrated Director's Cut on September 25th, according to Davis DVD. Featuring three additional minutes worked back into the film, the horror film - starring Christian Slater, Tara Reid, and Stephen Dorff - arrrives with an anamorphic widescreen transfer and Dolby Digital 5.1 tracks. Extras will include a new commentary with beloved director Uwe Boll, deleted scenes, music videos and a video game. Retail is $19.98. Awesome, three more minutes of terrible directing - or maybe the opening crawl is even longer?

I know I wasn't the only one disappointed when the director's cut of Uwe Boll's Alone In The Dark was said to only feature three additional minutes of footage. But that is not the case! Uwe Boll himself has confirmed that the film actually has EIGHT more minutes of previously unseen footage, but that he also removed five, hence only a three minute additional running time. According to Boll, "The new version is only 3 minutes longer than the old one, but totally different edited (less Tara Reid ... more Action!)." Color me intrigued. The new DVD, which also has a new commentary by Boll, drops on September 25th.
