The most powerful and effective horror titles are driven by a pervasive feeling of dread. That sickening feeling in the pit of your stomach that shortens your breath as you hide under the bed, hoping the deformed killer doesn’t find you as he stalks the room. He’s found you, and with no remorse or hesitation comes toward you with his pair of sharp, giant scissors. Helpless and with nowhere to run, you try to hold off the blades as best you can. It isn’t the cutting of the scissors into soft, warm flesh that’s terrifying, but the moments leading up to it.
