The long-running first-person shooter game has all the elements for a cracking sci-fi horror romp, but the 2005 film adaptation (starring Dwayne Johnson, no less) didn’t really hit the bullseye.

The good news is that reboot Doom: Annihilation hews a lot closer to the source material, while also taking its cues from James Cameron’s Aliens. A bunch of marines face off against demons and zombies on the Martian moon Phobos, where a portal to Hell has been opened. There’s no Rock this time around, but the non-stop action, practical creature effects and abundant Easter eggs for gamers will pretty much annihilate memories of the original.
