It’s a difficult balancing act for a work of horror to capture the grotesque without also becoming so. Dead Space 3 has nearly become the grotesque, a flashy and bloated genre piece. Sure, following up the generation’s most defining horror with a resolution is an unenviable task but it’s also just a simple, cinematic action sequel. The concluding entry can only resolve what’s already there and only be as horrifying as it is unexpected, and while it’s not the most refined Dead Space, it’s certainly the most ambitious.
