THE SCORE (63)

The Score (63)

Not only have we got yet another fine collection of horror gaming news (Anna, Van Helsing 2, Bloodborne, Fatal Frame, Bayonetta, Neverending Nightmares and more!), we’ve also managed to steal the newly released Silent Hills concept trailer brought to us by Hideo Kojima, Guillermo del Toro and Norman Reedus. Suffice to say it’s a bit good, and bodes well for a franchise reinvention. With talk of the game being delivered episodically, we might be enjoying fo…

UNDER THE SKIN (110)

Under The Skin (110)

As regular readers will be aware, we’re serious about our horror here at LaptopZombie. But that doesn’t mean we can’t also appreciate the lighter side of our favourite genre. With that in mind, we kick off this week’s edition of Under The skin – your one-stop-shop for all the week’s gory new trailers – with BEASTER DAY, a film about a giant killer rabbit (and we mean GIANT). Let the dismembering begin! ‘If you see THESE rabbit feet, your luck just ran out……

BEDTIME: IT MOVES

Bedtime: It Moves

As the days become shorter and the nights once again draw in, what better way to embrace the change of season then settling down with a strong cup of coffee and a truly exemplary example of free horror gaming? Built using RPG maker, “It Moves” is by far one of the best offerings we’ve come across. Look past the (strangely effective) standard RPG Maker cutesy pixel art and you will be confronted by one of the most unnerving games we’ve played in a long whil…

THE HILLS HAVE EYES

The Hills Have Eyes

I’m trying as hard as possible not to get too emotionally involved with next generation horror video game announcements. You see, having been “blessed” with a bouncing baby boy earlier this year, my horror gaming consists of stolen moments here and there while there’s no one around to give me that “you’re almost forty, you have a son and you’re playing video games on the shitter” look. I hate that look. Add to that the fact that I’m told paying over three …

WEIRD WEEK 156

Weird Week 156

One of our lead stories this week strikes us as being somewhat mundane. Apparently “Brain-to-brain 'telepathic' communication has been achieved for first time”. Now, don’t get us wrong, such a feat does sound impressive, it’s just that here at LaptopZombie dungeons we’ve kind of being doing that for years. You see, every time I submit either Weird Week, The Score or a sterling piece of horror gaming news to the Editor, he communicates with me telepathicall…

THE SCORE (62)

The Score (62)

Greetings, fellow horror gaming enthusiasts, and welcome to another edition of The Score, our lovingly crafted (see also stolen) collection of the week’s most notable horror gaming news snippets. This week mostly consists of new trailers (thanks to TGS) for the games already on your radar, but look closely and you’ll uncover a few new gruesome gaming delights. We’ve location-based smartphone-enabled vampire-bashing, over nine thousand zombies clambering fo…

UNDER THE SKIN (109)

Under The Skin (109)

Another week, another Under The Skin, showcasing all the new horror trailers from the last seven days. Strap in, because things are about to get very disturbing indeed. Especially for the entomophobiacs among you, as we kick off with John Russell Cring’s insect-based horror anthology CREEPING CRAWLING. Can’t you just feel them under your skin? The infestation begins on DVD 7 October. ‘You live with them, you feed them, you fear them. Creeping Crawling is a…

9K(ills)

There’s nothing we love more than posting about new horror video games we think might peak your interest, but even we can only read about so many games infested with the undead before our interest wains. It takes a special type of press release to demand further attention, and even bolder claims to prise open our wallets. Here’s this week’s notable attempt: “a game that uses special mathematical technologies to squeeze the maximum amount of undead chaos ou…

BIGFOOT EXISTS

Bigfoot Exists

A found footage Bigfoot flick from the co-director of BLAIR WITCH? Could I BE more excited about EXISTS? Here’s a clip. ‘For five friends, it was a chance for a summer getaway— a weekend of camping in the Texas Big Thicket. But visions of a carefree vacation are shattered with an accident on a dark and desolate country road. In the wake of the accident, a bloodcurdling force of nature is unleashed—something not exactly human, but not completely animal— an …

BETTER LATE…

Better late…

You might have thought LaptopZombie missed all last week’s horror gaming goodness due to the editor being away on his hols… but you’d be wrong! You see, I managed to grab all the latest blood-soaked chunks of news for your reading pleasure, but failed in my attempts to log in the back end (so to speak) and post them. That and I’m terribly lazy without the boss threatening to permanently alter my appearance if I don’t provide content. But look on the bright…

TRAILER ROUND-UP (1)

Trailer Round-Up (1)

No sooner does one half of Team LaptopZombie come back from holiday than the other half (namely myself) departs. Apologies in advance, therefore, for the dearth of articles this week (and for the absence of Under The Skin, our regular end-of-week roundup of new horror trailers). To compensate, allow me to present this modest collection of trailers that have debuted in the last few days. We start with Seth Grossman’s INNER DEMONS, a cautionary tale of the p…

PAISLEY

Paisley

In contention for the least scary horror title of all time, director Matt Olmon’s PAISLEY is a tongue-in-cheek throwback creature feature reminiscent of GREMLINS, CRITTERS and MEET THE FEEBLES. It’s also bloody good fun. Settle down with your beverage of choice and start the week with ten minutes of kick-ass retro horror.

WEIRD WEEK 155

Weird Week 155

After a week’s self-imposed hiatus, Weird Week has returned! That’s right, cherished reader (or readers, if you’re both awake at this time), we’re here once again to provide you with the week’s freshest tales of the strange and unusual. Just when you thought it was safe to leave the house we can confirm fresh reports of mysterious flashes in the night sky, two-headed snakes, law-breaking ghosts, radioactive wild boar roaming the forests, self-moving rocks,…

THE SCORE (61)

The Score (61)

We know it’s Saturday and we’re aware that you’re probably hung over, but that’s no excuse for not fully immersing yourself in the week’s horror gaming news (especially as there isn’t much else to delay the foolhardy act of venturing outside). This week sees Brutal Doom updated to enhance the blood dripping down walls “effect” (true story), Dead Rising 3 devouring the exclusive to Xbox One banners and launching on PC, more from Breach and Clear: Deadline, …

UNDER THE SKIN (108)

Under The Skin (108)

It’s true to say that in the past Under The Skin – your one-stop-shop for all the week’s new horror trailers – has embraced the more sensational side of our favourite genre (BIKINI GIRLS VS. DINOSAURS and WOLF COP anyone?) In an attempt to redress the balance, and to prove that we do have a soul after all, we’re going to kick off this week with an eccentric indie offering that’s altogether more grounded. What’s more, Ricky Fosheim’s AND UNEASY LIES THE MIN…
