Weekly horror review: cry of fear

Weekly Horror Review: Cry of Fear

This week, we’re going to look back a little, at what may well be one of the finest (and undoubtedly the most terrifying) Half Life mods ever made. It’s received numerous accolades on both ModDB and IndieDB, it’s been downloaded over five hundred thousand times, and it actually ended up collapsing the ModDB page on…

Weekly Horror Review: Alan Wake

If Stephen King were to make a video game, I’d imagine it’d look a lot like Alan Wake. This lovely yarn has all the trademarks of the father of modern horror, with some X Files mixed in for good measure.  Set in the town of Bright Falls, Washington, Alan Wake pits the titular character against…

Weekly Horror Review: Huntsman: The Orphanage

Tick tock. Tick tock. Tick tock. Tick tock. The damnable racket never really stops. As I wander alone through long-abandoned, detritus-filled corridors, that persistent and mind-numbing noise is my only companion, save for the meager light of my cell phone.
