The DangerTerrorHorrorThon is finally done, and it’s time for the wrap-up post (and a few extras):
Altered Beast: Werewolf (new pose), Neff, Aggar (flying head and whole Aggar), Chicken Stinger
Splatterhouse: Rick Taylor (new pose), Jennifer Willis, Evil Cross & Nightmare, Biggy Man, Nobu
Castlevania: Alucard, Queen Medusa, Sonia Belmont
Ghosts ‘n Goblins series: Red Arremer/Firebrand
Mario Series: Boo
Zombies Ate My Neighbors: Stanley Decker
the Horror gallery:
– Halloween: Michael Myers/The Shape (sheet disguise), Dr. Loomis, Jamie Lloyd, and, added today, an improved version of my 2016 Laurie Strode sprite
– Phantasm: the Tall Man (new version of blade-bearing spheres), Mike
– WNUF: Frank Stewart
Mini-logos: Sonia (Castlevania) added to Konami gallery, Carrie and Phantasm (Remastered) added to movie gallery.
All of these things were added to the GFX Generator, along with that new ominous arcade background.
The horror print (available on the shop page) made a cameo in a Destructoid article about some spooky Nintendo Switch games! Mad thanks to Jonathan Holmes for both buying a print and spreading the word! By the way, if you think the reshading job I did for the Laurie sprite looks like the horror print, well, we’ll have to save that conversation for a later date.
Hardcore Gaming 101 just released a new digest called The Guide to Retro Horror. The book includes material by Rob Strangman, creator of the legendary West Mansion Splatterhouse fan site and artwork by the always-fresh Rusty Shackles.
VGJunk has been on a roll with a wide variety of horror and monster game reviews throughout October, including Splatterhouse 3!
Arcade Quartermaster added new shrines, including Konami’s Haunted Castle, a game that’s considered scary for all the wrong reasons, and, to kick off Karnovember in the right way, the original arcade version of Karnov!
The movie became an instant favorite of mine when I saw it on Shudder long ago and I’m proud to own it on DVD (no VHS version for me… yet). There’s currently a GoFundMe campaign to get a sequel made! Consider helping out and supporting independent filmmaking if you can afford it!
Eddie in the City is having a sale on some cute, horror-themed miniatures, including a few game characters you’ll recognize if you’ve been following the HorrorThon!
This shmuplations.com translation of a 1988 interview with the Splatterhouse arcade team is right on time for the spooky season and full of interesting tidbits about the game’s creation.
