Even though it was a little bit heavy on the action, Dead Space is still considered as one of the best modern survival horror games by fans of the genre, as it features suspenseful gameplay and eerie, almost claustrophobic settings that relies as much on atmosphere as it does on jump-scares. Famed horror and action director John Carpenter seems to share these sentiments about the game, as he has admitted that it would be easy to adapt the Dead Space franchise to the big screen, during an interview with Game Informer.
“I maintain that Dead Space would just make a great movie because you have these people coming onto an abandoned, shut-down space ship and they have to start it up and something’s on board. It’s just great stuff.
I would love to make Dead Space [into a film], I’ll tell you that right now. That one is ready-made.”
