In addition to the usual reviews and comments you would find on a horror movie blog, this is also a document of the wonderfully vast horror movie section of the video store I worked at in my youth.

Don't Kill The Messenger 66

This week at E3, the three pillars Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo, as well as hundreds of game developers from all over the world trotted out their upcoming product. As usual, my next twelve months filled up pretty quickly. In addition to Black Ops, Medal Of Honor, Rock Band 3, Infamous 2, Killzone 3, Portal 2 and many others, there are some great horror titles on the horizon, as well. For instance;

F.E.A.R 3 is set nine months after the second games icky conclusion and you take control - via two player co-op - of duelling brothers from the previous installments, Point Man & Paxton. Here's some demo footage.

Rage is a new property that I only first heard about this week. It looks really fun and much like Fallout 3 and Borderlands without all the RPG elements that don't interest me. It appears racing around like Mad Max is also a large component to the game, as well. Here's a look.

When I first saw the working title of Silent Hill 8, my first thought was 'holy crap, there's been SEVEN of these things already'. I know it's been a while since I've visited this series, but wow. This one's got an interesting setup, that might just get me back in. Check out the trailer below.

Okay, now that they're actually releasing a Dead Rising game for the PS3, I can finally get my zombie killing on! Can't wait to try out that double chainsaw motorcycle! Here below is some demo footage from Dead Rising 2.

Those above titles are all great, but there's no game I'm looking forward to more than Dead Space 2. I had so much fun playing the first one, that I can't wait to get into Isaac's suit again, and try out his new abilities and weapons. It looks like there is a special edition pack available that comes with a PS3 port of Extraction, as well. Awesome! Here's some Dead Space 2 gameplay.

Like I said, even BUSIER times ahead.
