These days I love horror. However, I haven’t always been a fan of all things spooky, scary, and skeleton-related. There was a brief period of time (I call this time “childhood”) where even catching so much as a glimpse of a horror film would give me nightmares. Then my older brother brought home the game Fatal Frame. As the neighbourhood kids and I watched him play, crowded around our cement block of a television set, our eyes wide with fear, I knew that I would never be the same. I didn’t sleep for three nights, hysterical with fear.
And then I was cured. I had the fear burned right out of me. No piece of media has ever scared me so bad since, and I am effectively immune to horror. But I know that not everyone can handle being scared out of their wits! And that’s okay. For those folks, Halloween can be a dicey time of year. Is it going to be scary or is it going to be spooky? Never fear, ‘fraidy cats: All games listed here are spooky. Not scary.
