Until Dawn finds inspiration in classic horror movies

Until Dawn

Andrew Webster for The Verge:

The best horror movie of the year might just be a video game. Though it’s available on the PlayStation 4, and you play it with a controller, Until Dawn is really as much a film as it is a game; borrowing from some of the biggest horror franchises around, like Saw to Evil Dead, it combines the tropes into a terrifying experience that’s both familiar and unique.

It’s really been too long since we've had a decent, truly scary horror game so I’m really excited to fire this one up. I’d love to see Until Dawn defy the odds and become a classic, although it’s tough to see that happening with such a small marketing push but you never know, stranger things have happened.
