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.

Jessica D.

Very fun! Staff was super nice. It was my daughter's birthday and they made a big deal of it which was really awesome. The attractions are scary but not too scary. Fun scary. Really cool looking with all the Christmas lights too. I'd highly recommend it, especially for a birthday party!

Zack J.

Best haunted house I've been too! The live band was great, food was good, and each house had its own spooky feel! As a former haunter I 10/10 recommend Scream Hollow!

Zack KC

I went there by myself tonight all the way from Pflugerville. It was worth it. Staff was super friendly. Had a few good scares and I don't scare easily. Definitely get the distancing collars/bracelet at the gift shop.

Amy M.

Absolutely fantastic!!! I went with some friends to just get away and have fun. From the drinks, food, theming, to the scare actors.... EXCELLENT!! AND a live band. Highly recommend making the trip here. Well worth it and the price for 4 haunts just can't be beat.

You can quit searching for Halloween events near me. If you live in or near Austin or San Antonio, Texas then you HAVE to visit Scream Hollow. Unlike other attractions, where you might get a bit of a thrill, we know you WILL be terrified by Scream Hollow. We have 5, count ‘em: 5, separate and distinct attractions. Each is designed to be different yet just as intense as the others: Some say the Mansion of Terror is forever cursed. Some say the mysterious Adella still roams the halls. Some say the mansion itself is alive. You are going to wish you never came to Zombie City. After all, it may be too late to save humanity... but it's never too late to save yourself. Many have entered the town...none have come out! In Slaughterhouse: Virgil's Last Laff you might find out too late that Virgil and the rest of the Slaughterhouse: Virgil's Last Laff are vindictive, ruthless, and ready to fight back Or, if those are too much for you to handle, why not take a stroll through Wicked Darkness, the maze. Not everyone who enters comes back, or worse, comes back the same. So, which one of our haunted houses do you think you can make it through? We know you won’t do them all at once, which is why if you live in San Antonio or Austin, you’ll come back for more. Remember that no other attraction or haunted house will terrify and entertain you as much as Scream Hollow. You can quit searching for Halloween Events near me and come to Scream Hollow. It’s the only Halloween themed event you need to visit this year, next year, and every year after that. Be sure to bookmark 149 Split Rail Lane, Smithville, TX 78957 in your GPS so you know how to find your way back to us. For more information about Scream Hollow, call (512) 710-VAMP (8267) or email [email protected].

10 Best Haunted Houses in Texas

If you’re looking to find the scariest haunted house in Texas then you’re in the right place! We dare you to try any of the following top haunted houses in The Lone Star State.

We don’t just list the most haunted places in Texas on Haunted Rooms, we’re loving some of the haunted houses Texas has to offer too! That’s the haunted attractions and trails designed to give you a fright around Halloween!

Do you have what it takes to walk through the very creepiest attractions and haunted houses in Texas?

The Lone Star State has everything and then some. So, the next time you’re there, why not check out the creepiest haunted house attractions this side of the Mississippi. Texas is so big it has dozens of spine-tingling adventures just waiting for you.

Here is our rundown of the top 10 haunted attractions and haunted houses in Texas!

#1) Purgatory Scream Park, Kingwood

Purgatory Scream Park

If ever there was a place that holds terrifying secrets within its walls, Purgatory Scream Park is it.

It’s not just the attractions inside that are tainted either, it’s the woods all around and the very earth beneath your feet. There has been no one there for decades and for good reason; the unfortunate souls who were treated by Dr. Phillip Blackman and his staff still walk the halls and the grounds.

With stories of their own to tell.

The Indoor Asylum will scare whatever creep you have left in you. Don’t let that be all you see.

The Wood Trail will have you screaming for home as demonic and evil forces will jump out at you just when you think all is safe.

Whatever you’re thinking, you’ll be wrong. The Purgatory Scream Park will leave you guessing and have you remembering gruesome things for a long time to come.

#2) Doc Wilkes House of Horrors, Longview

Top 10 Haunted Houses in Texas 1

In Longview you’ll stumble upon the longest running haunted houses in East Texas. Doc Wilkes House of Horrors won’t let you go without a fight.

After all, every neighborhood has that one house which no one goes near, and for good reason. This place is different from the rest and you can explore its evil depths right up until the witching hour at midnight.

Based on real events, bring your friends, because you’ll need someone to hold onto as you make your way through this maze of horror.

Discover the secrets that are found only in its walls and rooms. Doc Wilkes has a long history of making people shiver for their lives. Don’t miss out!

#3) Texas Terror Trail, Canutillo

This place was once home to German POWs during World War II. The Texas Terror Trail may not be a haunted house, but it is one scary and terrifying experience that won’t let you go.

Dark and mysterious forces were unleashed in this place many decades ago and the screams of the poor soldiers can be heard as you make your way through the trails towards the haunted house.

Dare to walk the Terror Trail alone or with a group and discover which creatures are just waiting for you behind every tree and dark shadow. No use running, as they are all around you!

#4) Scream Hollow Halloween Park, Austin/Bastrop/Smithville

Top 10 Haunted Houses in Texas 2

Here you’ll find 20 acres and 18 buildings that will get you all mixed up and one haunted house more terrifying than the next. Just four miles down the road from the location of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre at the site in Smithville…

Don’t get too close to Adella, the wicked woman who runs the orphanage. Little children tend to disappear if they get near her. In the Mansion of Terror, her former home, you’ll encounter demonic forces that will have you running for your life.

Zombies await you in the factory, and they haven’t eaten in awhile. You’ll have work to do in order to keep out of their clutches, and at the two-story Slaughterhouse (a massive building new for the 2018 season), it’s a life or death battle between circus clowns and horrible cannibals who all want to feast on you! Scream at Scream Hollow – who will hear you!?

#5 Houston Terror Dome, Houston

Top 10 Haunted Houses in Texas 3
