White Night review photo
Stay in the light
When people look back upon the great horror games of this year, they're probably going to forget about White Night, and that's understandable. It doesn't break any ground, it isn't littered with jump scares to draw in the You... read feature

Animatronic Freddy Fazbear is creepy as all hell


Nope, not sleeping any time soon
Mar 09
Love them or hate them, the Five Nights at Freddy's games have been incredibly popular. Big surprise, people find slightly uncanny animatronic animals universally creepy. Now, thanks to Youtube user Dr. CreepyPasta, we get t... read

Damn, Hunger is unsettling


Almost as unsettling as hunger
Feb 25
LittleBigPlanet Vita developer Tarsier's new project, Hunger, is looking impressive. And spooky. It's that good kind of "everything is off kilter and uncanny" beat of constant unnerving versus any sort of aggressive scare. T... read

The Evil Within's DLC teaser really wants Leslie


Arriving in March
Feb 17
Well, Leslie. That's quite the predicament you've gotten yourself into, Leslie. We can't wait to see how you manage to get out of this one, Leslie. It's just a teaser, but at least we know that The Evil Within's first add-on... read

If you know me, you know I love horror films. I also happen to be very much in love with everyone's favorite masked killer, Jason Voorhees. I even got a cute lil' bloody cleaver on my leg in preparation for what I wanted to b... read

Heh, Lucius II *would* release on Friday the 13th


This doesn't look good
Jan 26
  I liked the idea of Lucius. Not enough games place children in the leading role, much less children who happen to be the devil's offspring. But good games aren't built on potential alone. In his review for Destructoid,... read

A Five Nights at Freddy's 3 trailer to ensure you don't sleep at night


One night looks like too much
Jan 26
Not sleeping's kind of the point of Five Nights at Freddy's. After all, a conked-out security guard defeats the whole purpose. But, at least other night-time employees have the underrated luxury of not being murdered by the ... read

Anoxemia finds horror at the bottom of the sea


Add drowning to the list of things to be terrified about

The thought of dismemberment and/or mutilation freaks me out, for sure. The thought of instead being stuck at the bottom of the ocean with a dwindling oxygen supply evokes a different kind of terror. Sure, there will probabl... read
