Monday, June 5, 2023 | Uncategorized


The Halloween horrors will soon be playable.

Filmmaker Justin M. Seaman gave RUE MORGUE the word that he’s working on both a video game and a board game based on THE BARN II (pictured above), his haunted-attraction horror sequel from last year. Here’s the synopsis and info for the video game:

“A strange fog has rolled into the town of Helen’s Valley, and with it has come an army of zombies, goblins and The Barn Baddies! Join Sam and Michelle as they battle enemies throughout town into cemeteries, drive-in theaters, haunted houses and more! Featuring all-new voiceovers by the cast just for the game, including Joe Bob Briggs, Diana ‘Darcy the Mail Girl’ Prince, Mitchell Musolino, Lexi Dripps, Sable Griedel and Chad Bruns.”

And for the board game:

“Something strange is going on at the Gamma Tau Psi annual Halloween Fundraiser this year. It seems it wasn’t the brightest idea to hold a haunted house inside of a barn infested with
monsters and the undead! Help the group navigate through the haunt and defeat the terrors within, all while collecting various body parts of the creatures to throw back down into the depths of hell in the well that resides in the basement.”

  • Box and board artwork by Devon Whitehead

Seaman has launched an Indiegogo campaign to help finance these two projects, with perks including Travis Falligant’s “Horror Babies” print seen below, featuring characters from the movie. The page also contains more info about both games, so check it out here!
