Next we have a collection of clips from the show Ghost Hunters. For the past few years, shows about ghostly sightings and paranormal goings on have become hot (like Ghost Hunters, Paranormal State, etc.) and Paranormal Activity is proving to be a financial force at the box-office. I've always been fascinated by horror entertainment purporting to be "real". It ads an element of creepiness and even if I know it's fake, the "realistic", unpolished asthetic is still somewhat disturbing to me at times. That said, I'm not a big fan of Ghost Hunters. They seem to always record one bit of evidence from every place they investigate (suggesting fakery) and there's usually a constant soundtrack over everything, undercutting any creepiness that I would usually feel from watching this stuff. It usually feels too polished. Anyway, enjoy and see for yourself!
Okay, let's end off on a lighter note. below ia a speed run (in two parts) of the classic NES game Castlevania, complete with rediculous end credit sequence with stupid pun-filled names. In its time, Castlevania was the best horror game around (at least it was certainly the most popular) and it used a lot of the horror tropes gamers were still familiar with from movies (namely, Universal horror movies with their castles, wherewolves, and black-caped vampires, etc.). Nowadays, unfortunatley, stuff like that is seen as quaint as today's horror audiences and gamers are more into surprsingly agile zombies, genetic mutations, killer alien warriors and the like. Still, if you were 10 in 1987 and were playing Castlevania for 4 hours alone with monsters constantly attacking you, you'd be a little creeped out too (as well as annoyed by being thrown 2 feet into a pit every time you were merely touched by something).
