So over the weekend I, along with my good friend Raychul Moore, competed in Sinister Pointe’s THE HUNT, a horror scavenger hunt across Southern California. I was given permission to bring a video camera along and chronicle our experience for you the people of the internet. Watch the entire 6 hour adventure compressed down to 52 minutes below. Or if that’s too long, there’s a 4 minutes “Wonderful Time” edition below as well. ENJOY!
Last night I saw “The Lords of Salem”, the new movie from Rob Zombie, which was followed by a panel featuring Mr. Zombie and his wife, Sheri Moon. I’m a huge Zombie fan and love most of his past work. Did I like this one? EEEEHHH. My friend, Jill Kill, and I, along with Micah from 365 Horror Movie, discuss our reactions below.
I have no idea why all the text on my site has auto-italicized. I didn’t do it. If you know how to fix it, please contact me. K.
UPDATE: I fixed it!
I don’t do any gaming on my PC, but I recently stumbled upon this apparent internet sensation I somehow missed out on called “Slender: The Eight Pages”. It’s a free experimental title you can download from virtually anywhere, but I got it from www.slendergame.com, which also serves as a fan site detailing the mythos behind the game. I bring this up because rarely has a video game truly freaked me out the way this basic, yet ridiculously effective title does.
The premise is simple… you are alone in the woods, you are being stalked by some sort of man/demon/asshole named Slenderman whose only goal is to end you before you can collect 8 pieces of paper with cryptic notes on them scattered throughout the dark, foggy forest. The way the tension builds in this game is truly in a league of its own in the world of gaming as you wait for the Slenderman to randomly appear to you. You never know when, you never know where, but you know it’s going to startle the F out of you when it happens.
If you want to learn more about this game, and see how it effects people, there are literally hundreds of reaction videos on Youtube showing people playing it, screaming, and some even having to quit due to being so utterly freaked out. As a fan of horror, I love this game. It’s so scary, even Bane can’t deal with it.
I usually don’t post about this sort of thing, but the Oldify! app currently free on IOS has amazed me. I downloaded it and figured it would be some quick fun. I put a picture of myself in and literally 4 seconds later I was startled by what was produced. What do you think? A little bit TOO real for comfort. Get this beastly app now!
