Ah fück y'all giving me goosebumps at 2:00 in the morning.
@Downvote Trash, try 4 am I can't get to sleep due to my cold and I probably won't get any sleep now
@skedda, ever tried watching a video by Felix Colgrave at 5am? Feels like drugs took you to get a horror trip
Or maybe that's just me.
@Downvote Trash, you're welcome
Ok but what's with that fuzzy nightgown in the first box?
@Good Guy Satan, why not?
@Good Guy Satan, that's called a "robe".
@Good Guy Satan, comfort, my friend.
@Good Guy Satan, comfy as hell
@Good Guy Satan, didn't father from kids next door have a robe like that?
Bad horror is good for a laugh. Good horror makes you jump at every shadow and noise from the moment you watch it to the moment you go to sleep.
So like It Follows
That's gotta be a reference to SCP-096, right?
@OpalUtopia, Scps can fück right off, especially the god damn a.i and mutant alligator. Fücken things are too damn smart
@Dexios S Divine, now, when you say mutant alligator, do you mean the super intelligent alien one that's unkillable and wants to exterminate humanity, and can adapt instantaneously to any threat posed to it, or do you mean the one that starts it's life cycle as a human child, but then sheds it's skin and head, and mimics the last words of its victims to try to lure prey toward it?
@OpalUtopia, fun fact: seeing just a pixel of its face in a picture without even realizing it is enough to make you its next target. And it can travel faster than cars, helicopters, and trains. And it can smash straight through buildings while running without slowing down. And weapons have no effect on it. And it won't stop running until it finds, rips to pieces, and [DATA EXPUNGED] it's target.
@Sybil Reisz, forgot about the talking ones, fück both of them
And therein lies my major problem with Outlast 2
Few things are more dread-inducing than that which cannot be stopped.
Also good horror can also simply be too otherworldly and unnatural for humans to even comprehend, this incapability to understand what is seen creates the horror. (Lovecraft is an amazing example of this)
@Magazine Table, ever read "House on the Borderland"? Great cosmic horror novel.
Also, helplessness is also a major aspect of cosmic horror that is missing in quite a few of Lovecraft's stories. Stories like "The Whisperer in the Darkness" or "The Colour Out of Space" have it, but stories like "The Dunwich Horror" or "Herbert West: Reanimator" were more action-thriller than cosmic horror.
The rake. Need I say more?
You want good horror? Look up "Layers of Fear." It's a new class of horror known as 'Psychadelic horror.' It's from the perspective of a schizophrenic artist who is haunted by his terrible choices. And unless you pick a very specific path, the game never ends.
Really good tips on how to make a good horror story
