From Haunted Houses to Zombies: The Most Frightening Scary Horror Games

Do you enjoy the adrenaline rush of being scared out of your wits? Are you a fan of horror movies and looking for a new way to experience fear? Look no further. In this article, we will explore some of the most terrifying scary horror games that will leave you trembling with fear. From haunted houses to zombies, these games will push your limits and keep you on the edge of your seat.

Haunted Houses: A Classic Thrill

If you’re a fan of haunted houses, then horror games that feature eerie mansions or abandoned buildings are sure to provide an exhilarating experience. One such game that comes to mind is “Resident Evil 7: Biohazard.” Set in a dilapidated plantation house in rural Louisiana, this game combines atmospheric horror with intense gameplay. As you navigate through dark corridors and solve puzzles, you’ll encounter grotesque creatures and terrifying jump scares that will keep your heart pounding.

Another notable haunted house game is “Amnesia: The Dark Descent.” In this first-person survival horror game, players find themselves trapped inside an ancient castle with no memory of how they got there. With limited resources and a lurking presence that feeds on fear, this game is guaranteed to make even the bravest players feel vulnerable and terrified.

Zombies: A Never-Ending Nightmare

Zombies have been a staple in horror culture for decades, and scary horror games featuring these undead creatures are always popular among thrill-seekers. One standout title in this genre is “The Last of Us.” Set in a post-apocalyptic world overrun by infected humans turned into zombies, this action-adventure game blends intense combat with an emotionally gripping storyline. The realistic graphics and immersive gameplay make every encounter with the infected a heart-pounding experience.

For those seeking a more intense zombie experience, “Resident Evil 2” is a must-play. This remake of the classic survival horror game takes players back to Raccoon City, where a zombie outbreak has turned the population into flesh-eating monsters. With its atmospheric setting and relentless undead enemies, this game will keep you on your toes as you fight for survival.

Psychological Horror: A Mind-Bending Challenge

If you prefer horror games that mess with your mind, then psychological horror games are perfect for you. “Silent Hill 2” is often regarded as one of the best examples of this subgenre. As players control James Sunderland through the foggy town of Silent Hill, they unravel a deeply disturbing story filled with symbolism and psychological torment. The game’s haunting atmosphere and psychological twists will leave you questioning reality long after you’ve put down the controller.

Another mind-bending horror experience is “Layers of Fear.” In this first-person exploration game, players step into the shoes of a disturbed painter as they navigate through a constantly changing mansion. Delving into themes of madness and obsession, this game uses clever storytelling and visual trickery to create an unsettling experience that will keep you guessing until the very end.

Survival Horror: Fight or Flight

For those who enjoy intense gameplay and heart-pounding action, survival horror games provide an adrenaline-fueled experience like no other. “Outlast” is a prime example of this genre. Armed only with a camcorder, players must navigate through an abandoned psychiatric hospital filled with deranged inmates. With no means to defend yourself other than hiding or running away, every encounter becomes a tense battle for survival.

Another standout survival horror game is “Alien: Isolation.” Set fifteen years after the events of Ridley Scott’s iconic film “Alien,” players assume the role of Ellen Ripley’s daughter as she tries to survive aboard a space station infested by one relentless xenomorph. The game’s AI-driven alien enemy constantly adapts to the player’s actions, making every encounter a nerve-wracking game of cat-and-mouse.

In conclusion, if you’re a fan of being scared senseless, these scary horror games will provide an unforgettable experience. Whether you prefer haunted houses, zombies, psychological torment, or survival challenges, there is a game out there that will cater to your darkest fears. So grab your controller and prepare for a night of terror as you dive into these spine-chilling virtual worlds.

What's Your Question?

How to Find Out About the History of Your Home

Your home holds many memories, and not all of them may be yours. Or you may question whether your house could be haunted or contain hidden treasure. If you’re wondering about checking the history of your house, get ready to learn how to uncover your home’s past.

Taxpayer Assessor Online Databases

Search online for your town’s taxpayer information. Once there, if your town offers an online database including every property, you might find out a lot about your home.

One tax assessor company, Vision Government Solutions, maintains online databases for states on the East Coast. Click on the state and you’ll see a list of your state’s towns. Some of the towns have accessible databases, and others don’t. Follow prompts to take you to your property’s information, including previous owners.

Hidden on Trulia’s website is a list of U.S. assessor records for every state. Search for Trulia’s property sitemap, and once on the page, you’ll see your state listing. You’ll be taken to a page with your state’s counties. Keep clicking to pinpoint your search.

Some towns host online assessor databases. Once on it, type in the property address or parcel number to visit a page of information about your home.

Realtor Websites With Home Information

Finding your home’s property listing, even when your home is not for sale, also offers some history. In addition to dipping into the websites of the major real estate agencies in your area to find your property, try the following sites:

  • Realtor.com

Also try the Multiple Listing Service site directly. Head to MLS.com and you’ll see a map of the United States. You might find the history of your neighborhood or a home next door that may be for sale or in foreclosure, which could give you some hints about your own home.

Finding Out About Your Home’s Hauntings

Head to DiedInHouse.com, a website that keeps a database of people who have died in properties. The site may be able to tell you if someone actually died in your home. There’s a nominal fee to see the information.

Dig Up Land Records and Historical Maps

If you’re a genealogy enthusiast, you know the value of historical maps and land records. If you’re new to this type of search, start at the National Archives (archives.gov) to initiate a search into your property. You’ll find land transactions and even what the average cost was to build your house.

You can search for, download and enlarge historical maps of your town or neighborhood. Or go to your town hall and local library for copies.

Find Your Local Historians

Do some footwork to find the history of your home, neighborhood and town. Try the following:

  • Historical societies: Your town’s local historical society can target your home’s history. Head to PreservationDirectory.com to find a database of local historic organizations.
  • Real estate agents: Try calling a real estate agency to help you locate information on your home’s history.
  • Neighbors: Pick the brain of a long-time neighbor. You may be surprised with juicy details.
  • Physical evidence: Consult with an architectural historian, according to ThisOldHouse.com. Researching layers of paint or wallpaper helps identify what year your house was built.

Actually, this is called the dark side haunted adventure. we drove 1.5hrs to get there. (my husband and I, do haunted housed every year and always look for new ones to try.) highly recommend buying tickets ahead of time to avoid the line to get in to adventure. very unique adventure, done very well! These volunteers are very happy to be there and were having fun with their characters! Some great pop up scares and pyrotechs. we spent a total of 1.5hrs going through each of the 6 haunts. loved that it was very interactive, and everything flowed together well. Highly recommend paying the extra money for the paintball zombie game, that was different, and very fun! definitely in the top 2 for us! Will definitely return next year! great fun, and great way to spend an evening! (i would have given it 4.5, but can't figure that out)

I just came from this attraction with my family. We had come a couple of years ago and weren't impressed but we decided to give it another shot, sad to say that we were even more disappointed this time around. We got there right as they opened (7pm) and were in line, with maybe 15-20 other people, within about 10 minutes. We walked up a muddy hill to the mineshaft which is the first attraction. It was really cool, the scares were good but they shoved everyone through within 30 seconds of each other so we didn't get any real scares and we're stuck with people right in front and behind us- super annoying. Than, we waited outside the mineshaft for close to 15 minutes and were put on a hayride through the woods. In my opinion, this was the only good thing about the entire attraction. People popped out from the woods, the masks were very generic but the actors were awesome, really cool fire spitting props and guys with fake chainsaws came right up to the tractor. It was super cool. But from there it really unraveled. The haunts led to a maze with 11 different doors. The actor kept telling us to the left and we were lost FOREVER. finally, they let us out and we were annoyed because all we did was walk in circles, there weren't even actors in the maze, just burlap sacks hitting your face. than you walk through some very poorly designed "houses" and a corn maze with no actors. the walk back was all uphill/downhill in mud and the parking lot was all mud. us, and 4 other cars, were stuck in the mud and no one helped us. To sum it up, I wouldn't recommend this. It wasn't scary after the hayride and the parking lot was shitty and staff were unhelpful. Not worth the $30/ticket. Save your money. Go to Abandoned House Complex in Mount Pleasant, instead.

A good haunting, with a competitive price, and even the drive to the farm was a bit spooky! I would definitely recommend this as a location for both families, and couples, and if they change it up each year I will definitely return. This is an actual farm that has been very thoroughly converted to a five part haunt (I wont say anything that may spoil the surprises, but I do recommend checking it out!). The haunt is spooky in all parts, and the layout is well done. Effectively you make a large loop around the farm, but it doesn't feel expected at any time. Each surprise is fresh, and each twist is what you hope to get out of a haunted venue this time of year (but rarely do!). Their are a couple of downsides, that can easily be fixed. The first is that this is clearly a popular venue, meaning the queue can get quite a few people deep. This would be fine if their were something to detract from the fact that you may be waiting as long as an hour, but their is not. Also note that once you are in the queue for the haunt you cannot leave for snacks without risking losing your spot, and there are none along the line. I recommend downloading the latest "Angry Birds" to your phone to pass the time, but the wait is worth it. This is also an attraction I would not recommend for individuals. From the way that you enter the attraction, to the five stages throughout, you are often asked if you are going to enter as a group of "2 or 3". Going in even numbers is ideal, as you'll see that almost all aspects are designed for the 2 person set up. When your finished you return to the same building where you purchase your tickets, and have the chance to again buy refreshments. You are likely to be thirsty by the time you are done, so this is appreciated, but note that the queue for the attraction starts in the same building so it is likely to be crowded. With some better time passing distractions while waiting to get in, cleaner restrooms, and a snack venue that is not crowded by the entry line, this could easily be a five star attraction, as the scares are top notch.

As a huge horror fan, I'd been a little jaded lately with the haunted house scene. The last couple haunts my girlfriend and I went to seemed keen on herding people through as fast as possible just to ramp up their ticket volume. When you get clumped into groups of 8 with strangers, it's only scary at the front, and then you're just walking through being nice to the actors by feigning fright. Great way to spend so much money! Well, this just changed. With The Dark Side, you're split into groups of 2 (or 3 is the exception if you really want to be in a group of 3). The Descent kicked it off on a powerful note, where you go down this creepy mineshaft with winding hallways and tons of props and people jumping out at you (it reminded me of My Bloody Valentine, but with some clowns thrown in too). From the Corn Maze (with creepy-ass farmers lurking in the shadows yelling at you to get off their property) to the Greenhouse (with creepy children crawling on the ground, out of the steam, slowly coming after you) to the Hayride (where a werewolf literally sat down next to me!) the scares/screams kept coming. There were also cool spots specifically designated for photos. And the separate Zombie Expedition? A double-decker bus hauled by a tractor took us to 7 different sets (elaborately built). Paintball guns are bolted into the railing and you get 75 paintballs (but for an extra $5, you can buy another 75 halfway through). Ticket prices above don't list the discounts we paid. We went on the first weekend they were open, so haunted house tokens (the 6-in-1 deal) were $25, not $30. The extra Zombie Expedition is listed at $15, but if you combine it with the main haunt, it's only an extra $10. So for $35 each we got to shoot zombies and go through the haunted houses (took about an hour and a half to do everything, and that's considering we got to skip all the lines - only because a fast-pass is included when you buy the combo). The only real downside is the drive out to Ixonia, but even that has its upside. Coming from Milwaukee, it was about a 40-minute trip one way, although it set the mood for me and my friends, driving through eerie cornfields and farm land. I'm already looking forward to go back next year and check it out again!

This is an very amateur haunted adventure that has no business charging $20. If you saw any polls about this place being the best, take it as a grain of salt. It's obvious that they are the only one's who bother telling employees/friends to vote for them and it's utterly misleading and dishonest. Most of the actors wear costumes that one wouldn't be surprised to find at a Goodwill. (scream mask, really?) I honestly thought with the price they charge that they would be hiring some aspiring makeup artist or something but no. You can go to Walgreens and buy the makeup they use and there was no skill in the actually application. Like the halloween makeup you'd see on a cute 4 year old boy who wants to be a zombie. The actors themselves are painful and embarrassing to witness, particularly the younger ones. Of course, many of the actors at this place have no acting to do and just pop out to scare you but that's probably for the better. For the people that talk to you (people 'directing' you through maze/advancing you to the next area) many of them have a very vague character and they struggled to improvise. The one exception to this is the older (i think?) hunter man. Besides him, it was generally teenagers/young men failing at being witty or creepy. Anyways, I can put up with unimpressive costumes and the lack of real performing, but the haunted houses were honestly boring and this is definitely the weakest I've been to. The first haunted house was mediocre, no real design to speak of. They call it a mine and it's designed like that on the outside but that theme is completely abandoned once you're inside. No real intricate design to any room or anything for that matter. For example, many haunted houses may have some sort of twisted surgeon themed room with an operating bed, blood, guts, tools, bugs, medical supplies, anything you may expect in a gross horror hospital and it's covering half of the floor, all over the walls, tables etc. Dark Side has 0 meticulously designed rooms designed to even half of this degree. Maybe in their opinion they do, but that's because they're doing way too much without giving detail to anything. That mine and tractor ride are the highlights unfortunately and the whole thing unravels further after that. The mazes were just plain stupid and a waste of time. Besides choosing the initial door, the path is really obvious and you're just walking in to burlap sacks until you find the end. No design here, no one to scare you here, no point to even doing this other than so they can tout that they have x number of attractions .Corn maze was the same. The corn wasn't even high or dense enough to justify having a corn maze and there was only 3 actors here that just lie about the way you should go even though there's only 2 short, extra, uneventful loops that are incorrect. You'll soon know the right way yet the actors insist on you wasting your time with the wrong way which wouldn't be a problem if ANYTHING happened at all while you were in the maze. I can't believe I drove over an hour to come here to overpay for what they tout as the best haunted house in WI. I recommend you don't waste your time and go to haunt fest or hubertus house of horror.

First time at the Dark Side Haunt! We drove out from Waukesha, got there around 9:15-9:30pm on a Friday night. Purchased our tickets through a promo on Livingsocial (2/$22: https://www.livingsocial.com/deals/869812-the-dark-side-haunted-adventure-2-tickets?ref=share-post_purchase-copy_box-web-deals&rui=28025506&rpi=135787188). It was a ton of fun! There was a fat line, but definitely worth the wait. There were five haunts total--but my favorite has to be the hayride! Without giving away any details of the haunt, you can tell they put a lot of effort into their haunt. It was really creative. All the characters did a pretty good job. They do a decent job of spacing groups apart so everyone gets a chance to be scared. I also appreciated the photo ops at different stations with props. There is a bit of walking, so wear comfortable shoes and bring a jacket. They even have concession stand and vendors for you to check out, maybe grab a hot cocoa or a bag of popcorn! Since it is a farm in the day time, they have produce for you to buy as well.

That was a really awesome haunted house, very interesting. I love how the workers actually interacted with you and followed you around instead of just standing in the same place waiting for someone else to scare next. They're really funny as well! I love the farmer who stands on the top of the hill when you first enter. Wicked Ivy was awesome as well. I love how she interacted with my friend & I and asked us to help her and when we asked what she needed help with she actually would answer back to our questions. That haunted house it definitely worth going to again. I enjoyed it a lot. It gave me my first scream at a haunted house.

Limited actors, had a few pretty good special effects, most of it is outside with a large amount of walking including hills, steps and a sketchy bridge to get to the zombie experience (which you have to add if you want to purchase a fast pass, as well as go there first)
