Spooky Month: Anime Fan Art

Sometimes in anime you run into some odd characters, take Emporio Ivankov from One Piece; he is the Queen of Newkama land. If you are a fan of a certain movie, you can see he is heavily influenced by a Dr. Frank N. Furter. Of course, Emporio had other influences but they aren’t anything we in the West know. Anyway just a neat little piece of art I wanted to share since it has the word Horror in the title lol.

Spooky Factor: Not spooky but mildly disturbing

Spooky Month: The Suffering

The Suffering is one of the earliest horror action games I ever played and one that I can always go back to play again.

You play as Torque, a guy who is sent to prison for the murder of his wife and children, did he really do it? was he framed? I dunno probably. Anyway as you arrive at the prison some evil demonic force takes over the prison and demonic beings start killing everyone. It is up to you to escape with your life and uncover some dark history of the prison/island as you go along.

The game play is that of a third person shooter but you can try to play in 1st person as well, though I don’t recommend it, its not the best, particularly because the monsters can come at you from all sides.

I give this game a glowing recommendation and to its sequel as well, it has a great story (I still don’t know what is up with that Dr. Killjoy)and the game play is very tolerable. Have you played The Suffering? what did you think of it? Let me know what you thought of it.

Spooky Factor: It can get pretty spooky, the graphics might ruin it though.

Spooky Month: Highschool of the Dead

…of the Dead seems to have been a popular title for zombie stuff at one point, House of the Dead, Night of the living dead, Survival of the dead, Dawn of the Dead, etc etc. Highschool of the Dead is a Zombie story taking place in Japan and follows a small group of high school friends as they try to reach their loved ones and survive the risen dead.

I am a pretty big fan of stuff involving zombies, but I don’t think I have ever been scared of zombies as monsters, when done wrong they are nothing but rabid animals. In HS of the dead they are the traditional Zambies, slow and dumb easily killable but troublesome in groups. One sad thing is that both the Manga and the anime are in some sort of limbo, who knows if it will continue, but I really like whats there.

Go check it out if you haven’t, you might like it.

Spooky Factor: Not Spooky at all. Unless it is.

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┬áplaying 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

OMG She’s so Cute!!!!….wait…aahhhhhhh

Spooky’s House of Jumpscares a game by Lag Studios originally realeased on July 28th of 2015, is a horror game where your goal is to make it through Spooky’s house, all 1000 rooms. The game starts out to innocently, the first few monsters are just pop out monsters on sticks but as you get deeper and deeper into the house things just get scarier and scarier. A good example is the faceless monster chasing you, or the killer deer.

Spooky’s is a fun little game, it can be unsettling at certian parts but I definetly recommend you give it a try, get it now on Steam for about $12 bucks or wait and see if it goes on sale in the near future.

Spooky Factor: Super Cute Spooky, but then very spooky
