The Psychology of Horror - AlterGamer

When you go to the local cinema, or buy yourself a Horror Video game you aim at one of two things. Having a great laugh, because the attempt at “horror” will be pathetic, or become absolutely terrified. One would think that after watching a few dozen horror movies and having played all those Resident Evil games a person would be resistant to all the “tricks” horror offers. That is true, in part (Culture, PC)

That was a good read, and I loved Pan's Labyrinth. Always thought that "Pale Man" was the best part of the movie lol.

The Pale Man was incredibly well played. The movie itself was incredible. I recommend it to anybody who did not watch it yet.

He was played by Doug Jones, who is awesome at these type of roles. He also played The Fawn. He even said the lines in Spanish, although another actor's voice was dubbed over it eventually. The role was apparently very physically demanding.

Frictional Games did more for horror genre than movies last ten years

Are you suggesting Frictional Games should start up their own Movie Studio? That could actually work, seeing as they have the right idea of what Horror should be.

That would be interesting to see a (real) horror movie done by them... Not like these slasher gore flicks they call horror these days. Though I wouldn't want them to stop making games. ^^

Still, I think that a game gives you some tools, that used well, bring a lot to the genre. Looking at something happening to somebody is not as scary, as being that person. Hmmm... First person horror movie anyone?

I found Siren to be pretty damn creepy.
