We try to keep our free horror gaming posts as fresh as possible, in that we may not highlight every single free to play zombie apocalypse game out there in favour of focusing on the choice examples that we feel offer something worthwhile. After all, if you’re going to be playing a vicious game of alt tab while at work, you might as well enjoy it. Which brings us to another fine free horror gaming offering just waiting for half an hour of your precious tim…

Tuck Me In

Tuck Me In

There are short films and there are really short films. Spanish director Ignacio F. Rodó TUCK ME IN falls into the latter category. It’s just sixty seconds long – and what’s more, it’s great! Prepare yourself for the scariest minute of your day!

Nightmare On Your St.

Nightmare On Your St.

Following on from our previous suggestion of spending Halloween clawing your way out of an alien creature’s stomach using only your bare hands and demented determination, we’ve another equally appealing idea for you. Why not turn out the lights, don a swanky pair of headphones and delve into your deepest, darkest nightmare? While there you’ll be able to solve genuinely interesting and well-executed puzzles, and point and click your way around some rather h…

Weird Week 160

Weird Week 160

This week isn’t the best week to be a clown. Granted, this is true most weeks of the year, but this one is particularly bad. What with the return of American Horror Story and their version of the often-feared children’s entertainer, coupled with reports of clowns assaulting folks with sex toys, clowns 'disturbing' people in the streets, and armed clowns running amok in Paris, perhaps you’d better rethink that genius circus-based Halloween costume. Read on …

Have you been losing your mind with The Evil Within or running scared as Ripley’s equally unlucky daughter in Alien: Isolation? You might think there’s no room left for further delving into the realm of video game horror this week, but alas, dear reader (or readers), you’d be wrong! Look below for the choice horror gaming news from the week gone by (including zombies, killer teddy bears, the return of Alma, hungry aliens and some mobile-based bleakness). A…

Slash/Up Mashup

Slash/Up Mashup

Hands up if you’d like to see a short film in which TERMINATOR-busting badass Sarah Connor faces off against unkillable FRIDAY THE 13TH icon Jason Voorhees. That’s what I thought. Enter fan-made web series SLASH/UP, which pits cult franchise characters against one another. You can find a whole raft of extras on their YouTube channel, but for the moment sit back and enjoy the carnage!

The Natural Choice

The Natural Choice

October 31st is fast approaching. That sacred time of year where we all can embrace the darker side of life and indulge in practices that at any other time might raise the odd eyebrow. Perhaps you intend to re-watch a favourite horror film alongside an unsuspecting loved one, delighting in their unease. Perhaps you will be amongst friends, dressed as iconic cinematic murders whilst bobbing for apples. Or maybe you intend to knock on neighbourhood doors dem…

Sometimes Weird Week comes together perfectly, delivering just the right kind of spooky chills we love. This is one of those weeks.

Weird Week 158

Weird Week returns for another eclectic collection of stories to make you laugh, cry and wince! This week we ask the question when can we genuinely say we’ve had a bad day? I mean, sure, there’s the daily office annoyances, family feuds and the general public to deal with, but do we really have the right to moan? It’s not like you’ve been asked to inspect 10,000 pigeon bottoms for explosives, is it? You haven’t been arrested and jailed for carrying spaghet…

For those of you not already reliving Ripley’s Alien nightmare through the eyes of her daughter, Alien: Isolation has launched and early reviews say the ghost of Colonial Marines can finally be laid to rest. Elsewhere we’ve Devil’s Dare (gamers vs the undead), Killing Floor 2 bringing the blood, Costume Quest 2 (it looks …

We’ve got a lot to get through this week, so there’s no time for the usual pithy banter. Just know that you’re reading Under The Skin, the only place on the internet where all the week’s new horror trailers are corralled for your consideration. We start with our favourite monster – werewolves – and the first trailer for David Hayter’s WOLVES. After seeing this the jury’s still out, but fingers crossed it delivers the goods. Look for it On Demand 16 October…
