Slender: The Arrival
Slenderman is inspired by The Blair Witch Project. Just like in the movie, Slenderman is the entity that haunts you, taunts you and stalks you in the woods. And just like the Blair Witch, you don’t know where she is but you sure know she knows where you are, ready for the right moment to kill. Being able to play instantly makes you feel like the filmmakers in the movie. Anticipating and alert, however, powerless they think of being able to escape.
Condemned: Criminal Origins
This game is inspired by The Silence Of The Lambs and Se7en. Condemned is a hearty mix of the chilling thrill that Se7en gives you and the jarring horror that Silence of the Lambs can offer. This is a somewhat refreshing game that you doesn’t just let you shoot and run. You are also able to get your detective skills working by analyzing the deaths and solving what is happening. That and running away for your life when something scary pops up.
A spooky, abandoned house is already scary as it is. How about traversing an old, beat-up insane asylum that is not so abandoned? Going through the place at night with only your night vision goggles is already capable of sending goosebumps, then why not add some schizophrenic maniacs that made it their mission to kill you? Inspired by REC, The Shining and Session 9, you will definitely be sleeping during the day after.
Friday the 13th: The Game

Although many questioned the legitimacy of the game, rest assured cause this is indeed legit. This is because Jason’s actor lent a hand in 3D modeling and motion-capturing for Jason in the game.
