There are now 10 video games based on the Evil Dead series, not counting games Ash has guest-starred in, like Dead By Daylight and Poker Night 2. That’s a decent number, although the Alien series has surpassed it, especially when you count the various Alien vs. Predator games. There have been four Blair Witch games, each developed by a different studio, and even Texas Chainsaw Massacre was made into an Atari 2600 game in 1983. Meanwhile, several attempts to make Hellraiser games were canceled ahead of release, including one in Duke Nukem’s build engine and one in the same engine as Wolfenstein-3D. It hardly seems fair.
What horror movie would be a great video game?
Here are our answers, plus some of ours Forum.
Wes Fenlon, Editor-in-Chief: It follows. Imagine some kind of life simulation game like Bully. You’re a teenager, you go to school, you decide whether your character studies in the evenings or goes on dates in the retro town square. But at any time, an NPC could actually be a terrifying, unkillable force of nature out to rip your freaking head off. You can stave off death by romanticizing and sleeping with other people around town, but if you hear about their gruesome murders on the news, you’ll know your number is coming.
This game would probably be terrible. Great movie though.
Chris Livingston, Producer of Features: March of the Penguins. let me finish Yes, it’s a beautiful film about life’s triumph under extremely adverse conditions, ending with the heartwarming sight of all these adorable little baby penguins whose parents fought like hell to protect and care for them. But then you just think…wait, these baby penguins are growing up and having to endure everything we’ve just seen their parents do: months of starvation, near freezing, whale attacks, the loss of a bunch of their children, and so on in sheer agony and unrelenting misery, am coldest place on earth to survive. That’s not uplifting. This is one goddamn horror story! The life of these penguins is a nightmare.
But there should be a game about penguins because they are cute.
Tyler Wilde, Editor-in-Chief: Host. A pandemic horror movie where scary things happen on a video call was guaranteed, but it wasn’t guaranteed to be good or even watchable, so I think we got along pretty well with Host. It’s an energetic 57 minutes and does everything you’d want from a Zoom horror story. (There’s good use of automatic face recognition, as seen in the trailer.)
A game would work I think. Mock computer interfaces are all the rage (Her Story, Emily is Away, Duskers, Pony Island, etc.) and Five Nights at Freddy’s proved that a game that’s mostly about seeing spooky things on monitors is doable. You want great spatial sound so the video call sounds like a video call but the footsteps sound like they’re behind you.
Morgan Park, Staff Writer: Is A Quiet Place a horror movie? I’m never sure about these things, but let’s just say it is. I think you could make a pretty good third-person survival game out of the first movie if it really got into the whole don’t make a sound thing. I imagine tense moments of looting a grocery store while trying not to step on broken glass or knock over a tin can. It would probably have to be a road trip story lest you spend 10 hours on the same farm as Jim Halpert’s family. Ideally, it would be more stealth than action, much like the original Splinter Cell series.
Jody Macgregor, Weekend/AU Editor: I mentioned the many Hellraiser games that launched but never came out in the intro because I’d love to see that finally realized. Solve puzzle boxes, be stalked by extradimensional BDSM demons, take a trip into the labyrinthine hell they call home. What’s not to like?

DXCHASE: The human centipede. You have to lure people into your lab and then sew them together and then send them off to fight for you.
sarafan: The Underworld series deserves a solid game adaptation. Maybe it’s not pure horror, but it definitely has a lot of elements of it. The first movie got an adaptation for PS2, but you don’t want to play it… The series has huge potential in many different genres, be it RPG, FPS and even a strategy game. It’s strange that nobody decided to deliver a good playset in this universe. Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines would finally have a solid competitor.
Brian Boru: I’m not a horror guy, but has anyone made a Frankenstein game for PC? I’m only aware of one console fighter about 30 years ago. You can build your monster from a finite number of parts, e.g. B. 20 – with a few required parts, such as a head and 2 legs. Rest is up to you – if you want 8 arms, go for it!
Once you have your blueprint, you must stalk and assassinate people in the area, bring them back to the dungeon you won in a PC gamer contest, and pull out your trusty and rusty hacksaw to collect their entry the great Project.
The different quests you send your monster on require very different layouts – cutouts? –, so many reconfigurations and adjustments are required.
flashn00b: Does The Purge count as a horror film? I guess if you don’t count the second and fourth movies then maybe?
I feel like a game based on The Purge would work, it would have to be a life sim, base builder, open world survival vehicle and third person shooter all rolled into one. Life simulation because the key to a successful purge is gaining the trust of the right people, base builders because you have a home and neighborhood to defend, open world survival ships because you have to leave the safety of your home to conquer a city that has turned into a war zone and a third person shooter because ALL CRIME IS LEGAL FOR THE NEXT 12 HOURS.
I think if risk/reward has to be a thing for the life simulation portion of a Purge game, they might as well provide an opportunity to commit crimes outside of the Purge, although the New Founding Fathers of America will take even the smallest of offenses pretty seriously.
