[Rondal Scott, the Zack Morris of Strange Kids Club, fires up the DeLorean for a roundup of the best 8-bit grue the NES had to offer.]
Video games inspired by the horror genre span as far back as console gaming itself. From Wizard’s 8-bit adaptation of Texas Chainsaw Massacre on the Atari 2600 to the upcoming Chucky title by TikGames, fear has served as an inspiration to game developers the world over and vice versa (a fact well proven by the Resident Evil franchise). The industry is littered with the viscera of chainsaw-wielding maniacs, otherworldly monsters and demonically-possessed creatures conjured from the darkest corners of the imagination. In fact, few gamers would be able to list their top ten favorites without naming at least one horror video game.
While our list could easily cover more than 100 titles (and that would just be part one), I figured we’d narrow it down to the Top 5 Horror Video Games per platform, beginning with the NES.
Here’s your chance to fight the good fight, Rue Morgue readers. Our pals over at Strange Kids Club have started a petition in hopes of convincing Hollywood to get off their asses and fund that Goon feature we’ve been hearing about for so long. It’s a worthy cause – the test footage, posted after the jump, is quite promising, and we all know that Frankie and the Goon deserve their turn on the silver screen. So fight your way through the Hobo Jungle, stomp some Chug-Heads and click here to sign the petition. And don’t forget to share it with your degenerate pals!
After selling out the debut issue of Strange Kid Comix back in April, the gang at Strange Kids Club is back with a second installment, just in time for Halloween. I tracked down Strange Kid Comix editor-in-chief and SKC siterunner Rondal Scott and stared at him without blinking until it got really awkward and he agreed to play a game with me – a game we like to call Sinister Seven. (Hit the jump for a five-page preview of the mag.)
Rondal from Strange Kids Club sent me this trailer for the upcoming low budget film Deadheads. I know zombie comedies are wearing pretty thin by now but this one made me laugh a few times, and the cast looks pretty solid so I thought I’d share.
