Three recent trailers for horror films have whetted my appetite: all having "gaming inspiration" writ large over their concepts.
First up is Eli Roth's The Green Inferno, his homage to the classic cannibal horrors from the age of video nasties.
I've long wanted to run a survival horror adventure where the player-characters are lost in a jungle and menaced by cannibals. Wasn't James Raggi writing such a tale for Lamentations Of The Flame Princess at one stage?
The other two movies were drawn to my attention by my horror partner-in-crime, Paul: As Above, So Below and Rigor Mortis.
Although As Above, So Below looks like yet another (groan) "found footage" flick, it overcomes this creative shortcoming by its setting: the Paris Catacombs. I've wanted to visit these for years, but in the meantime this might serve up some vicarious thrills as well as throwing up some dungeoncrawl-related ideas.
Meanwhile Rigor Mortis looks like an inventive Asian horror with a slew of great imagery and, hopefully, some fascinating mythology.
