Some things are better off in their original form. Take this video-game
adaptation, which follows paranormal investigator Edward Carnby (Slater) as he
battles with demons worshiped by an ancient tribe. Carnby enlists the expertise
of his ex, an anthropologist played by Tara Reid, donning dark-rimmed glasses
and, presumably, a brain. Any chance for suspense is thwarted by gratuitous
violence, heavy-metal–propelled action sequences and laughably flat dialogue
between characters who are barely more developed than in the Atari version.
