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.

Five haunted locations in Arkansas

haunted houses in searcy ar

From northwest Arkansas to right here at Harding, paranormal encounters have been reported in several locations year round. These five locations may be visited to quench curiosity for the adventurous, to feed the adrenaline junky after a long day of classes, or to occupy a free weekend on an uneventful campus.

1. 1886 Crescent Hotel, Eureka Springs

Approximately three and a half hours from Searcy stands “America’s most haunted hotel” – the 1886 Crescent Hotel in Eureka Springs – according to the Crescent Hotel itself. During the construction of the hotel in 1885, a stonecutter named Michael supposedly fell to his death from room 218. According to Arkansas.com, Michael was “a good-looking man who often got in trouble for flirting with the ladies” and continues to play tricks on female guests.

The Crescent Hotel provides haunted tours in which tourists can experience underground passages and the basement, which was used as a morgue while the building operated as a hospital from 1937-1940.

2. Haunted Tours, Hot Springs

Downtown Hot Springs has a rich history of illegal gambling and gangster activity. Hot Springs Haunted Tours hire guides to lead a nightly 90-minute walk through the main strip of town and tell the paranormal encounters and history of various locations.

The tour begins with three houses on Court Street, which lay on ancient Native American burial grounds and served as the scene for more than 200 hangings in the early history of Hot Springs. Tourists are warned of the Arlington Hotel hauntings and the screams heard from the Arkansas Rehabilitation center, which originally served as the Army-Navy Hospital during World War I and was later used as a sanitarium for the criminally insane. The tour ends with a visit to the location of the Ledwidge drive-thru funeral home.

3. Old Arsenal Tower Building, Little Rock

According to Arkansas.com, the old arsenal building in MacArthur Park was established shortly after Arkansas joined the Union in 1836. It is now the MacArthur Museum of Arkansas Military History. The website tells tales of disembodied voices, apparitions and shadows from the building. Tales say a clear apparition walks down the staircase to the ground floor and throws objects at people in the late afternoon or on stormy winter days.

4. The Clayton House, Fort Smith

The Empress Bed and Breakfast was originally built in 1888 by James Hornibrook to be the most elaborate home in Little Rock, according to The Empress website. Two years later, he was found dead at the front gate of the house.

The bed and breakfast has the most stories of paranormal activity on Arkansas.com. Reports include sightings of a military captain, a man dressed in formal attire, a maid folding laundry and a large woman dressed in pink.

5. Lee Building, Harding University

Harding is featured in the book “Haunted Halls of Ivy: Ghosts of Southern Colleges and Universities” by Daniel W. Barefoot for having a student who never left: the Galloway ghost.

Galloway College for Women opened in 1888 and closed in 1933. The campus was acquired by Harding College in 1934 when it relocated from Morrilton, Arkansas. According to the book, a student named Gertrude (Gertie) fell down an elevator shaft in Godden Hall when investigating a sound she heard while returning to her dorm room for the night. The bricks from Godden Hall were used to build the Lee Building. A story from the 1999 Petit Jean yearbook tells the account of a group of boys who spent the night in the Lee building to prove Gertie did not exist, but in return heard unexplainable soft piano music playing and called security to rescue them.

In a 2013 article from The Bison, Jim Johnson, then director of student support services, told of his Gertie encounter. He said while working in the Lee Building, his phone malfunctioned, and he heard piano music and a woman’s voice singing.”All I thought was, ‘Man, that is so pretty,’ but then I remembered that there were no more pianos in the building, and I was alone,” Johnson reported in the article.

Harding University hosts a Haunted Tunnel

SEARCY, Ar. (LP) — The whole month of October is spooky, but for most people it’s not spooky enough. Haunted houses are located everywhere, and people nowadays are craving to go to them to spice things up. This year, there was a local haunted house at Harding University, the Harding haunted tunnel. Ross Ingle, a freshman at Harding Academy said, “My friends said they were going, and I thought it would be fun to go with them.” It would be more terrifying than fun if you went to a haunted house alone. So everyone grabs a friend, buckles up, and goes to have fun. 

The longer the haunted house, the more fun people have right? Well, no one likes very short haunted houses, especially when you wait way too long. McKenny Sheffield a freshman at Harding Academy an attendee of the Harding Tunnel says, “I think if it were a shorter wait and longer, I would have been happier, but I waited in line for two hours for a three minute long walk through.” People have definitely been complaining about the wait time for such a short amount of time in the tunnel. They also claimed that they ran out of tickets in the middle of performing. So, although some of the visitors there had been waiting in line, they didn’t get to go in and see the haunted tunnel. 

Some people had opinions on how to improve the tunnel. McKenny Sheffield says, “I would make it longer and add more throughout it, like decorations.” Short haunted houses typically aren’t fun or interesting especially when there are not very many decorations. Without many decorations, it can be boring and will disinterest the visitors. If nothing is really happening in the haunted house, nothing is keeping them occupied with it. Another thing said about the tunnel is that it was a little slick. That could be a hazard and cause danger to younger and older people. Ross Ingle said, “I would change it to have no water in it.” The haunted tunnel was located inside and had some water in it, making it a bit slippery. So it could’ve caused some injuries if people weren’t careful.

It is the actors and everyone involved in haunted houses number one priority to keep you safe, immediately followed by scaring you of course. But sometimes, things just aren’t that safe for people. Especially immature people. McKenny Sheffield says, “I think it depends if it’s safe or not if the actors can touch you. It is definitely less safe for children, but I think if you understand the rules and things allowed, and you are okay with doing it, then it is safe.” 

People love Halloween, it’s a fun, light-hearted holiday. Kids love dressing up, and the haunted houses give people an adrenaline rush.
