SufferingWatching a movie based on a video game has seldom been a pleasurable experience, which is why movie critics are already sharpening their pencils for pun-tastic ways in which to dress down MTV's latest attempt. With the announcement of their acquisition of the movie rights to the PS2/Xbox hit The Suffering, MTV has not only given writers a gift, but ultimately will have schooled the world in irony (though doubly so if the movie defies the laws of reality and is actually any good). The game, created by Midway Games, is about a death row prisoner who finds himself in the middle of some demonic chaos, and has spawned a sequel, The Suffering: Ties That Bind, which is due for release on September 26th and features the voices of Michael Duncan Clarke and Rachel Griffiths.
