You know what’d be cool? A Dead Space movie. Shame they’re not making on–

Huh? They have been? Since 2009? Well, what’s going on? Is it… dead?

“We’re working on the story,” director D.J. Caruso told AreaGames. “We had one attempt of trying to do a prequel, but the story didn’t quite work out as well as we wanted it to. But if we can capture how – I don’t want to say, I guess, how scary or horrifying it would be to play that game because it’s really, really fantastic. It’d be fun to make that into a movie.”

Well, on the upside, no one will have to endure our hideous shrieks in a public setting for a while. In space, no one can hear you scream, but when we’re playing a game about that topic, well, in our defense, it only sounds like sobbing. And those aren’t tears; it’s just, er, raining. You know, in our living room.
