Terrorphoria: "I've loved the Splatterhouse franchise for as long as I can remember. Growing up in the 1980's amidst a steady stream horror movies and pizza parlor brawlers like Double Dragon, when Splatterhouse first arrived I felt like it had been created just for me. "It's a game where you play as Jason!" was the general description and review it first received from everyone in the neighborhood. It was a gruesome and "controversial" game at the time, in an era long before video game violence was fodder for network news."
