Spooky Month: Fatal Frame

Fatal Frame is a game that came out 2 console generations ago for PS2 and Xbox it focuses on a girl named Miku and her brother Mafuyu it takes place in an abandoned and haunted mansion. Mafuyu doesn’t come back after going to search for his sensei in the mansion so Miku goes and starts looking for him in the same place.

The main antagonists of this game are ghosts and the only way to fight them is with a camera. After taking multiple pictures of the ghosts damaging them they will disappear, no pictures you take during combat are kept but there are some pictures you take that you keep that also help continue the story.

Fatal Frame does a good job of setting up a very spooky atmosphere, you never know when a ghost is going to be around the next corner. The eerie sounds the ghosts make will always unnerve you making you jump at every little noise that pops up.

Its kind of sad that I have not been able to play more of the games in the series, I haven’t made it past part of the second game, kind of out of fear but also because game 3 and on are all on consoles I don’t like¬†playing games on very much. Either way though I do recommend you try out the first and second games in the series, they are a great spooky fun time.

Spooky Factor: Way spooky

Spooky Month- Gyo: Tokyo Fish Attack

 

Gyo is an interesting horror manga by Junji Ito one of my favorite horror manga writers. The manga revolves around Tadashi and his girlfriend Kaori as they try to escape the horror that comes from the ocean, but today I am here to talk to you about the OVA that was made based on this Manga.

The OVA was modified from the manga in this version Kaori is the protagonist where she used to be the dueteragonist. Kaori is on vacation with 2 of her friends when they are attacked by a shark on land! After defeating it they find out that many fish on some sort of contraption are walking on land and generally being a nuesence, they are also spreading a horrible stench which people describe as the scent of death. Things get horrifying when people start being infected with whatever is affecting the fish.

I will tell you that the OVA is not as scary as the manga can be, I think the art style just doesn’t do it justice in an animation. I recommend reading the manga over watching the OVA if you can, but either way check it out and let me know what you think in the comments!

Spooky Factor: Hold on to your dooky, it gets pretty spooky
