There have been a lot of movie to video game adaptations over the years, with many focusing on either superhero, science fiction, or action films. However, horror has always been the odd one out, with many of their adaptations either being completely unnoticed (Ju-On: The Grudge Video Game) or so old that they haven’t seen the light of day in years. This is a shame because there are a lot of horror films that deserve to have their own video game and whose stories could be told in interesting and unique ways.
When deciding what scary movies should have their own interactive experience we tried to focus on several different genres of horror video games. Many movies could simply get relegated to survival horror, so we are going to look at other genres that mesh well with both the film’s concepts and gameplay. Now it’s important to note that horror is incredibly subjective, but we are not going to dismiss choices even if we didn’t find them personally scary. If we could turn our favorite horror movies into video games, here would be our picks.
