The 7 Scariest Video Games Out There

If you like horror games, you might want to try the following ones…

If there’s something in video games that no other medium is capable of making us feel, it’s immersion. The feeling of not being a spectator, but a protagonist. That’s the key which creators have been working on,  to make us shake and fear while playing their video games. And by playing the following 7, we will put ourselves in the shoes of reporters, mentally ill and unfortunate security guards.

Of course, there are many more games that are full of terror but these are the ones that due to the game mechanics, they become so startling.

Mystery and horror video games

Outlast

The game starts with a reporter who visits a kind of madhouse which is nothing out of the ordinary, except that the place seems to have been through something, since there’s no one around. You obviously become the reporter while playing, so you will try to enter and once you make it, you’ll realize that all the mentally ill are everywhere and ready to harm you. Your only weapon will be the camera which will help you to see through the dark. However, you are in need of new batteries, so you must decide when to use your camera and trust your instinct.

Amnesia: The Dark Descent

As the name implies, you will become an amnesiac who wakes up on an island and must try to survive until you find and enter into a castle. But that’s where everything turns bad. The enemies are invincible and will appear when you least expect it and the only thing you can do is running away. This becomes really stressful and chilling since you are in a dungeon full of narrow corridors and little by little, you will start remembering the shocking events that led you to the beginning of your adventure.

Fatal Frame 2: Crimson Butterfly

Something that allows us to feel somehow safe in this type of video games, is the possibility of seeing our enemies or guessing where they might appear from. However, Fatal Frame 2 takes away that from us. The enemies in this game are ghosts so you cannot see or touch them, but they can hurt you. Your only weapon against them is a camera that will help you to see them through and attack them at the same time while using the flash camera. Obviously, the biggest scares will come out when you take pictures while looking for them and they appear right in front of you.

Silent Hill 2

This one has become a total classic and one of the most important games in the genre. People at Silent Hill will be the main characters, hiding their enemies through fog and twisting the minds of all who reach their dark streets. The most terrifying thing of all is, you don’t fight against other people, but with creatures that were made from the depths of yourself.

Five Nights of Freddy’s

It may be not the best horror video game out there, but surely knows how to get you scare. You turn yourself into security guard at a place full of with animatronics. There shouldn’t be any problem but you got a night shift and the animatronics are actually haunted. You must keep an eye on the security cameras which they only can be seen one at a time and try to be faster than the animatronics in order to catch and stop them before they reach the office.

Until Dawn

During the 1980s, the horror genre had a major turn by making stories about young rebels that went on trips and what should have been a fun getaway, would end up being terror and death. This is what Until Dawn tries to achieve, when 8 young people went to some huts to hang out until they realized they were being chased by murderers and scary creatures. You get full control of all the characters and whether they live or lose their lives will be up to the decisions you take.

Despite not being somewhat revolutionary, it manages to get you scare anyway. There’s also a virtual reality version that is getting recognition. And coming from a horror game, that speaks from itself.

Horror video games that were canceled

P.T.

Although the release of this video game was canceled, users who managed to play the demo said it was enough to give it the recognition it deserves. With an endless corridor, a deceased woman, and lots of awful moments that brought out the worst scares to those who played it. Also, thanks to the alarming and gloomy story that was shown in the little sample, the game could have been one of the best the genre has had.

Homunculus created by Russian Youtuber Kortney

Learn everything about a homunculus and the experiment this Russian creator uploaded on YouTube

What is a homunculus?

Centuries ago, alchemists used to looking for a way to find eternal life but they also tried something a little curious: creating life. As if they were God, these scholars tried to create tiny humans who were loyal followers of their creators.

Of all those experiments, only myths remained. However, just a couple of years ago, a mysterious Russian youtuber, known as Korney, brought the topic back by creating a homunculus himself..

Russian homunculus

One of his first videos went viral so he subbed it into several languages in which he starts explaining the method he would carry out to create a homunculus by inoculating his own semen into chicken eggs.

On the video, he shows the process he carried out with a syringe. He covered the hole he did in the shell and left it to “hatch” for 40 days, just like chickens. Some time later, he broke the egg and recorded what shocked the internet: a small being bathed in greenish fluid, which seemed rigid.

He believed it wasn’t alive, so with a pair of tweezers, he gets closer to analyze it and the creature suddenly started to move and spat on his face. Surely this was an involuntary move, but the frightened Korney threw it into the table and crushed it with a book.

This is what started the argument of the veracity of homunculus. Korney didn’t want to give up so easily so he continued making more videos. However, they didn’t achieve the success of the first one, but they assured that, whether or not those things were homonculus, his experiments were having results. After the first experience, he kept trying until he managed to obtain something extremely strange but curiously alive.

In one of his tries, a thing which seemed with more vitality than the others was born, so the man put it on a container with water as a proof. This ended up with good results that he showed on video in which the creature looked bigger. It had an extremely weird shape that looked like a long trunk or even a mouth with some tiny and almost nonexistent legs.

The video was made by Korney with the intention of asking for advice because he didn’t know what to feed the creature. Many people told him to give him some protein which seemed to go down well with the creature as it began to grow larger. Once Korney was sure it was strong enough, he started to feed it meat. This made the creature to start developing veins which were visible through its pale skin.

Everything seemed okay until spring came and the creature stopped moving abruptly. He thought it was dead so Korney decided to put it in the refrigerator to freeze it and preserved it that way. At one time he went to check on it, he noticed that it was still alive and realizing that the homunculus actually liked the cold.

Yet, that wasn’t his only experiment with satisfactory results. He actually has another one, similar to a starfish and according to him, it doesn’t move that much.

A couple of weeks later, the homonculus showed a bulge in the back. However, it seemed that that was actually an eye and the homunculus was developing its body. Also, he claimed that the other homunculus was growing some type of electrical ability, like electric eels, which is why he began calling him Pikachu.

There are people who still continue to criticize and point out it’s a lie while there are also some faithful followers of his experiments that supports him. If you are interested, you can search for his youtube channel or his translated videos and judge by your own.

Now that you know what a homunculus is, do you think is correct to create one?

The Story Of The Shadow Doll At The Warren’s Occult Museum

Learn about the story of one of the most frightening items that is found at the Warren’s Occult Museum, the Shadow Doll

Unlike other dolls whose appearance is innocent and beautiful, the Shadow doll has a gloomy and unpleasant look, as the purpose of its existence, since it was created during a ritual for diabolical purposes. If this doll appears in your dreams, it is more likely to be a nightmare .

Besides pure evildoing, Shadow doll is made up of human bones and the teeth and nails are from animals.

This cursed doll scatters its ill in an unusual but no less terrifying way. The creators didn’t make her as a gift but to take her photographs and send them to the people they wanted to harm. Anyone who could see  Shadow doll’s picture, a curse would fall on them.

At first, when people used to receive the photo, they would laugh it off thinking it was a joke, but once it was night, they wished to never have slept on.

The doll would appear into the victim’s dreams. The nightmare would be so terrifying that the person’s heart would stop forever…

It is not known how Shadow doll came into their hands, but a seller of ancient things sold the doll to some collectors who were affected from the first day they walked through the door of their house with her.

That day, the couple had nightmares where the doll appeared and once they woke up, they were full of scratches. The second night the same thing happened again, but this time, there weren’t just scratches, but some marks like claws. After that, they decided to call the Warrens to take over the doll.

The magic in the doll is so powerful that if she is destroyed, the spirits that were summoned during her creation will follow after those who did it, bringing misfortune and fear.

Would you go and visit the Shadow doll at the Warren’s Occult Museum?

 

The Real Story Of Gargamel From The Smurfs

During our childhood, we watched hundreds of cartoons that touched us and one of them undoubtedly had to be The Smurfs, the story of those little blue beings constantly chased by the grumpy Gargamel and his cat Azrael. He would always devise any plan in order to destroy them.

Even though, we used to think that Gargamel was an evil sorcerer in the cartoon,  you might be surprised to know that in reality this was different. There’s an obvious reason as to why he used to insist on ending with the Smurfs and this is because, beyond being good and friendly, our little blue beings are linked with the Devil and all his evilness.

The true story of Gargamel dates since the 12th or 13th century. He was a well-known priest who became part of the Dominican order and got in charge of carrying out the inquisition in ancient Europe.

Gargamel was born in a small town in Spain and came from a very poor family. He was abandoned at the age of four by his own mother, since she didn’t have the financial solvency to take care of him. She laid him on a basket at the entrance of a convent and when he was found by the religious men, he got adopted by.

Time passed by and when he grew up, he became a priest of the convent and swore to protect his sacred home from any entity or being that tried to do evil to them while helping those most in need.

Over the years, all the men who took care of Gargamel from his childhood started to pass away until he finally ended up alone in that huge and almost ruined place.

The sadness caused by being alone, made him being on the verge of becoming insane. However, he started to feel better when he met the one who would be his new companion for life, a small cat that was wandering around the place looking for food. Gargamel adopted and called him Azrael. He and his little feline ended up being inseparable until the end of their days.

He managed to get ahead and all his daily experiences were narrated in his book. At the end, this great and noble character was the inspiration for different comics, and of course, cartoons like The Smurfs.

The curious thing is that in this cartoon, Gargamel is still a priest but introduced as a grumpy old man who lives inside a church along his faithful cat Azrael to hunt the little bluish-creatures.

Azrael comes from the name Israel, which means ‘God’s chosen people’.  Although some others associate the name with ‘The Angel of Death’ and his mission is to help Gargamel destroy any evildoing and among those, the Smurfs who are the 7 deadly sins and it’s very clear which one represents each: Grouchy Smurf (Wrath), Greedy Smurf (Gluttony), Vanity Smurf (Pride), Hefty Smurf (Envy), Brainy Smurf (Greed), Lazy Smurf (Sloth) and Smurfette (Lust).

An interesting fact is that the family leader, Papa Smurf, is the only member in red attire, which is why he is considered as the Devil.

Despite the friendly image of the Smurfs, there’s a dark background behind, as they supposedly are malignous spirits from the forest that will bring evil to humanity and so Gargamel’s duty is to protect the world from these demonic entities and thus throughout the chapters, he persists on catching them.

On full moon days, the Smurfs used to performed rituals and spells to create a new being like themselves and only through that moon phase they could be able to steal children’s souls.

So next time you watch one of the chapters, remember to not hate Gargamel, as he only tries to defend the world from the evilness.

Did you know Gargamel wasn’t that bad of a person?

Mysterious Creatures Caught on Camera

The world has proved us many times that there’s always something new yet to know such as things we still haven’t figured out or even some animals that we have never seen before. Nowadays, it is easier to capture in photographs anything that surrounds us due to technology and the use of smartphones. Sometimes we take pictures because we find something very pretty to the eyes but other times, it may be when we find something weird and unknown for us.

The following creatures were caught on camera and nobody was able to explain what kind of animal they were.

Marine creature in Tokyo

There’s only few and rare information about this sea creature, caught on the cameras by Hyper-Dophin, of the Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology. They were doing some routine recordings near the southern shores of Tokyo when the creature of the photo appeared in front of the camera.

It looks like a dolphin but doesn’t share the actual shape of the jaw dolphins have. It doesn’t even match the shape with other known animals. On the other hand, it actually looks more anthropomorphic than we would like.

Qatar’s creature

The Arab press was the one that released the discovery of this strange creature. According to the reports, pictures were taken with a cellphone by a woman. She found the creature in a parking lot.

Several citizens claimed to have been in the place and seen it. When they got close the creature, it left without being seen. Leaving only the photo as a proof of its existence.

The Sakhalin creature

On the Russian coasts of Sakhalin, the body of this creature was found by soldiers. It was in such an advanced state of decomposition that it was difficult to define what it looked like when the creature was alive. However, the remainings were quite interesting and disturbing to see because one might think that it was a cetacean, but no cetacean has hair and this creature did.

Besides, the framework of its bones didn’t have the shape of any known fish. It also seemed to have like a reptile’s mouth, but again, the shape didn’t match. The soldiers took away the body and ever since, it’s still mystery what kind of animal it was.

Trunko

This is in reference to the creature found in Russia. There’s a story from the 1920s, in which a marine creature was spotted off the coast of South Africa.

The only record that remains is an image and news covered by the Daily Mail of London on December 27th, 1924. The story describes how some people had witnessed the fighting of killer whales against another species. It was like a white fish that came out of the sea, pouncing towards the killer whales.

When this creature lost the battle, its body reached the shore (where the photo was taken). It was a giant 14-meter-long with white coat covering the entire body.

A peculiar characteristic was its nose looked like an elephant’s trunk and its tail like the one from a lobster. However, just as the Russian creature, no one determined what animal it was, and if they did, the information was not shared.

Thailand’s creature

In 2007, a small anthropomorphic and weird being appeared in a small town in Thailand. The creature’s was 3 ft 11 inches and according to the few information reported, people who lived in town assured they found it wandering in the rice field. They caught him thanks to a rodent trap they used.

However, what was initially considered odd and dangerous, ended up being considered a divine creature because after three weeks of death (when the photos were taken) the body still hadn’t rotted or emitted any odor. The only change was the creature’s skin went from brown to white. It is believed that it could be the malformation of another animal, but nobody has verified it.

Jeepers Creepers Existed! The Real Story Of The Movie Is Horrible

Sometimes reality is stranger than fiction. Learn about the true story that inspired Jeepers Creepers, one of the most disturbing horror films out there.

Jeepers Creepers film

Jeepers Creepers is one of the most scary movies in horror cinema. The main character is a demon whose face is similar to a snake and wakes up every 23 years. He haunts human beings whom he chooses by their smell.

When the demon perceives a smell he likes, he won’t stop himself and eat eyes to see, ears to hear, lungs to breathe. This demon becomes immortal during his feeding period which last 23 days and everything he eats will become part of him.

The true story

A married couple used to live in the county of Michigan in 1990.  Dennis DePue was an ordinary man who loved his kindful wife. But she wasn’t that happy and after asking for a divorce, Dennis lost his mind so he took the life of his beloved wife as an act of revenge and then dumped her remains at the back of an abandoned school.

In the Jeepers Creepers film, the demon can be seen throwing the bodies of the victims behind a ruined church. There’s also a very creepy scene in the movie in which two brothers observed what the mysterious demon was doing and when he noticed them, the demon went after them.

In real life, two brothers who were road traveling, noticed how Dennis DePue was throwing his wife’s body, but weren’t cautious enough for the man not to notice them. Dennis was furious and began to go after them for several miles.

The police got involved and managed to catch him. But days later, Dennis took his life after famous television show called “Unsolved Mysteries” chose his case, remaking scenes for one of the episodes.

Ten years later, the movie Jeepers Creepers was released and used same dialogues made by the show. They even used the same scenes where the license plates of the vehicle on the road were shown. This was with the intention to give credits to the show, although director Víctor Salva never gave them openly.

No doubt, creatures, ghosts or demons that are shown in horror movies are nothing compared to the brutality that exists in real life.

Did you know Jeepers Creepers was based in real life?

The Curse of ‘The Crying Boy’ Paintings

Read about one of the scariest stories of all time, the meaning behind ‘The Crying Boy’ paintings.

There’s a story regarding the artworks known as ‘The Crying Boy’. Despite giving this nostalgic and a little creep feeling, they were so successful during the 70s and 80s and were distributed around the world.

Who were the crying boys?

Many families decorated their houses with these paintings, however they had no idea of what was behind those crying boys. It is said that these boys portrayed actually lived in orphanages or charities during the time of Second World War, that’s the reason as to why they look like suffering.

The story of the crying boys

Legend has it that the painter of these artworks known as Giovanni Bragolin, sold his soul to the Devil to guarantee the sucess of his paintings. In exchange for this pact, his work would be cursed and cause disgrace to whoever placed any of his paintings or replicas at home.

The first incident occurred in an orphanage, where Giovanni had painted one of the children and later introduced the painting to the institution. Some time later,  a fire devastated the orphanage and those who used to live there lost their lives, including the boy he painted. The most horrible thing about this tragedy was, the painting was found beneath the ashes but was completely intact and that now it carries the spirit of the child.

Between the 70s and 80s, a lot misfortunes related to these paintings began to emerge. Many tragedies started to happen in some different ways, from bad luck to death. In most cases, fires would consume houses and those who lived in them and the paintings would always remained intact from the fire as evidence.

Witnesses who have survived mentioned that paranormal activity began once they bought the paintings. The sound of wailing or laughing could be heard at nights and also the feeling of being observed by the portrayed boys anytime someone would pass in front of them.

One of the most heartbreaking testimonies was from a woman named Rose Farrington, who reported losing her three children and husband after one of the paintings.

Too many people were affected by them. Newspaper “The Sun” even asked all readers to send them any painting they had so they could be burned under the supervision of firefighters.

Pact with the Devil

Another odd story about these cursed paintings is that if you stare firmly into the eyes of the crying boys, you can make a pact with the Devil…

Have you seen these paintings before?

Most of us have watched  “The Conjuring”, starring Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson as paranormal investigators, Ed and Lorraine Warren, who have been part of some of the most frightening paranormal cases in history.

In ‘The Conjuring Universe’, Judy Warren is also played in the movies but until “Annabelle: Comes Home”, the girl had a major role as she was the main victim of the diabolic doll.

The Warren are well-known and there’s a lot of information about them however, anything related to Judy is barely know.  This is why her husband Tony Spera, who is also a paranormal investigator and head curator of the Warren Occult Museum -which is now closed- decided to give fans an instant view of his wife.

Have You Ever Had Psychic Dreams?

Dreaming has always aroused the curiosity of scientists and by studying it, we have learned that dreams are the representation of our unconscious part. If we don’t sleep, we could not be able to comprehend or even learn. Also, if we don’t get that time for resting, we could also go crazy. However, there are many records that dreams can be more than a reflection of a person’s unconscious that show or connect us to something else. Some of them are quite common and you could have experienced one without even realizing it. They are known as psychic dreams.

Types of dreams

Psychic dreams

They are simply known as psychic dreams. It’s a kind of connection with another person that can only be reached by dreaming, like a parapsychological experience. An example could be when you dream of someone close to you who is in poor health or going through an emergency. When you wake up and later you check how that person is doing,  it turns out that he or she was actually going through something similar to your dream.

This is attributed to having a certain psychic ability to communicate with the consciousness of other people. The most common cases can be when you dream of someone and that someone dreams of you too.

Clairvoyant dreams

People who experience them tend to attribute these dreams to coincidences, but clairvoyant dreams can show us places that we will know before visiting them, events that we will carry out or even conversations that we have not yet had.

Besides from this, those with a psychic ability can experience full control of their dreams, that is, knowing that they are in a dream and doing what they want while asleep. It has also been said that through these dreams, people can talk and contact dead people.

Premonition Dreams

It may seem the same as clairvoyant dreams, but they are different. For being the ones closest to experiences and sensations, these dreams are about very specific events that are about to happen. To give an example, one of the most famous cases of these type was by Monsignor Joseph Lanyi’s dream about the death of Archduke Francis of Austria in 1914.

According to the tales, Joseph dreamt one night that he would arrive at his office in the morning to find a letter on his desk. It would be from the archduke and in it, he’d warned him that his life would be taken by a fanatic. He woke up very shocked and hours later, the archduke and his wife would be deprived of their lives in a parade. Just as it had happened in his dream.

Despite the fact that science hasn’t been able to explain these dream phenomena, it’s true that many of us have experienced these types of dreams at least once, so there must be something else in our minds that we still haven’t figure out yet.

Titanic Mysteries That You Didn’t Know About

Do you believe in other dimensions or time traveling? If not, these curious things about the Titanic will make you reconsider it.

It all started with a dream: “To make the largest ship ever built”. The expectations were so high that they even called it “unsinkable.” Even the engineer of this massive ship stated: “Not even God himself could sink it”.  God or not, we can tell this man was wrong.

It’s said that the Titanic was actually built to sink, as John Pierpont, the man who funded the construction, was fascinated with a book that was published 14 years earlier called: “The Wreck of the Titan”.

It tells the story of a ship that collides with an Iceberg and sinks. Also, the lack of lifeboats provoked that thousands of people loss their lives. The weight, capacity and design of the ship were practically the same as the Titanic. But this is not the most creepy thing about all, but what was about to come years after its collapse.

Sixty years later, a telegraph operator that was on another ship, received a distress message, coming from the missing Titanic. The instructions said to not change directions. This was not the first time that happened, every 6 years since the ship sank, strangely signals are received.

However, the rumors of what happened in the 1990s, will make you wonder about the existence of other dimensions or even about time traveling. It is said that in Norway, in 1990, a boat passing by, found a young woman sitting on an Iceberg.

She said her name was Winnie Coutts, claimed to have been on the Titanic and asked about what had happened to the other passengers. To everyone’s surprise, her name was actually on the passenger list and also, the old clothes she was wearing belonged to the time when the unfortunate event occurred.

It is also mentioned that a year later, in 1991, what seemed to be another survivor of the Titanic appeared, almost in the same place as the young woman.

This person was none other but the Captain Edward John Smith. He was an elderly man and was wearing the same uniform when the Titanic sank.

When his fingerprints were carried out, it was found that they matched with the ones of the captain who supposedly has drown together with his ship, or at least that was everyone believed.
