In my quest to learn if Boll really does make unapologetically awful films, I treated myself to two of his most famous movies, Postal and BloodRayne. BloodRayne is arguably his most successful video game adaptation, with two sequels and another reportedly in the works. Postal is probably his most well-known movie. I was hoping to get ahold of Alone in the Dark, one of the most egregious examples of how bad his movies can be, but I failed to find it and also very easily convinced myself against looking very hard. It's most famous for featuring a scene where a character who was recently killed on-screen gets up and exits the set. I am really upset that I missed out on that one scene. With BloodRayne and Postal, however, I did get to see a few things I never thought I would see, nor did I ever think I wanted to.
