From Haunted Houses to Zombies: The Most Frightening Scary Horror Games
Do you enjoy the adrenaline rush of being scared out of your wits? Are you a fan of horror movies and looking for a new way to experience fear? Look no further. In this article, we will explore some of the most terrifying scary horror games that will leave you trembling with fear. From haunted houses to zombies, these games will push your limits and keep you on the edge of your seat.
Haunted Houses: A Classic Thrill
If you’re a fan of haunted houses, then horror games that feature eerie mansions or abandoned buildings are sure to provide an exhilarating experience. One such game that comes to mind is “Resident Evil 7: Biohazard.” Set in a dilapidated plantation house in rural Louisiana, this game combines atmospheric horror with intense gameplay. As you navigate through dark corridors and solve puzzles, you’ll encounter grotesque creatures and terrifying jump scares that will keep your heart pounding.
Another notable haunted house game is “Amnesia: The Dark Descent.” In this first-person survival horror game, players find themselves trapped inside an ancient castle with no memory of how they got there. With limited resources and a lurking presence that feeds on fear, this game is guaranteed to make even the bravest players feel vulnerable and terrified.
Zombies: A Never-Ending Nightmare
Zombies have been a staple in horror culture for decades, and scary horror games featuring these undead creatures are always popular among thrill-seekers. One standout title in this genre is “The Last of Us.” Set in a post-apocalyptic world overrun by infected humans turned into zombies, this action-adventure game blends intense combat with an emotionally gripping storyline. The realistic graphics and immersive gameplay make every encounter with the infected a heart-pounding experience.
For those seeking a more intense zombie experience, “Resident Evil 2” is a must-play. This remake of the classic survival horror game takes players back to Raccoon City, where a zombie outbreak has turned the population into flesh-eating monsters. With its atmospheric setting and relentless undead enemies, this game will keep you on your toes as you fight for survival.
Psychological Horror: A Mind-Bending Challenge
If you prefer horror games that mess with your mind, then psychological horror games are perfect for you. “Silent Hill 2” is often regarded as one of the best examples of this subgenre. As players control James Sunderland through the foggy town of Silent Hill, they unravel a deeply disturbing story filled with symbolism and psychological torment. The game’s haunting atmosphere and psychological twists will leave you questioning reality long after you’ve put down the controller.
Another mind-bending horror experience is “Layers of Fear.” In this first-person exploration game, players step into the shoes of a disturbed painter as they navigate through a constantly changing mansion. Delving into themes of madness and obsession, this game uses clever storytelling and visual trickery to create an unsettling experience that will keep you guessing until the very end.
Survival Horror: Fight or Flight
For those who enjoy intense gameplay and heart-pounding action, survival horror games provide an adrenaline-fueled experience like no other. “Outlast” is a prime example of this genre. Armed only with a camcorder, players must navigate through an abandoned psychiatric hospital filled with deranged inmates. With no means to defend yourself other than hiding or running away, every encounter becomes a tense battle for survival.
Another standout survival horror game is “Alien: Isolation.” Set fifteen years after the events of Ridley Scott’s iconic film “Alien,” players assume the role of Ellen Ripley’s daughter as she tries to survive aboard a space station infested by one relentless xenomorph. The game’s AI-driven alien enemy constantly adapts to the player’s actions, making every encounter a nerve-wracking game of cat-and-mouse.
In conclusion, if you’re a fan of being scared senseless, these scary horror games will provide an unforgettable experience. Whether you prefer haunted houses, zombies, psychological torment, or survival challenges, there is a game out there that will cater to your darkest fears. So grab your controller and prepare for a night of terror as you dive into these spine-chilling virtual worlds.

What's Your Question?
How to Find Out About the History of Your Home
Your home holds many memories, and not all of them may be yours. Or you may question whether your house could be haunted or contain hidden treasure. If you’re wondering about checking the history of your house, get ready to learn how to uncover your home’s past.
Taxpayer Assessor Online Databases
Search online for your town’s taxpayer information. Once there, if your town offers an online database including every property, you might find out a lot about your home.
One tax assessor company, Vision Government Solutions, maintains online databases for states on the East Coast. Click on the state and you’ll see a list of your state’s towns. Some of the towns have accessible databases, and others don’t. Follow prompts to take you to your property’s information, including previous owners.
Hidden on Trulia’s website is a list of U.S. assessor records for every state. Search for Trulia’s property sitemap, and once on the page, you’ll see your state listing. You’ll be taken to a page with your state’s counties. Keep clicking to pinpoint your search.
Some towns host online assessor databases. Once on it, type in the property address or parcel number to visit a page of information about your home.
Realtor Websites With Home Information
Finding your home’s property listing, even when your home is not for sale, also offers some history. In addition to dipping into the websites of the major real estate agencies in your area to find your property, try the following sites:
Also try the Multiple Listing Service site directly. Head to MLS.com and you’ll see a map of the United States. You might find the history of your neighborhood or a home next door that may be for sale or in foreclosure, which could give you some hints about your own home.
Finding Out About Your Home’s Hauntings
Head to DiedInHouse.com, a website that keeps a database of people who have died in properties. The site may be able to tell you if someone actually died in your home. There’s a nominal fee to see the information.
Dig Up Land Records and Historical Maps
If you’re a genealogy enthusiast, you know the value of historical maps and land records. If you’re new to this type of search, start at the National Archives (archives.gov) to initiate a search into your property. You’ll find land transactions and even what the average cost was to build your house.
You can search for, download and enlarge historical maps of your town or neighborhood. Or go to your town hall and local library for copies.
Find Your Local Historians
Do some footwork to find the history of your home, neighborhood and town. Try the following:
- Historical societies: Your town’s local historical society can target your home’s history. Head to PreservationDirectory.com to find a database of local historic organizations.
- Real estate agents: Try calling a real estate agency to help you locate information on your home’s history.
- Neighbors: Pick the brain of a long-time neighbor. You may be surprised with juicy details.
- Physical evidence: Consult with an architectural historian, according to ThisOldHouse.com. Researching layers of paint or wallpaper helps identify what year your house was built.

Saunders farm - Fright night.... a huge disappointment!
Spent all day psyched to go get the blood pumping at Saunders Farm last night!! Left feeling completely ripped off. The haunted barn was so lame and at times laughable. it lacked actors or any kind of live ghouls inside that could startle you as you went through. Sadly they completely missed the mark, and after waiting in a line for 30 minutes, we had high hopes for the remaining activities. The highlight of the evening, (which isn't saying much) was the haunted hayride . We stood in a line for 45 minutes to get on and the ride took all of 15 minutes as the driver of the tractor sped through each section so fast, we could barely see anything. In comparison to last years Fury of the Fallen, CHEOs haunt, this was super adolescent and provided not one single scare ( and should be marketed only for teenagers , not adults). At a price of $30 per ticket,, we left feeling completely ripped off. I really hope Saunders farm re-evaluates what it is they are offering, perhaps they could contact some of the CHEO folks to help to maximize all the work they've put in.
Haven't been here in three years so lots of additions. I went with a 15 year old and two 9 year olds. Lots to say. Great outdoor fun - lots of variety. We were there from 10am to 5pm and could have stayed longer but there was school the next day. Asked directions and information often. Everyone was always friendly and informative. The tall guy in the orange suit in the show never seemed to be out of character even when we saw him just walking around - so cool. Dress for the weather - if it rained wear rubbers and dress in layers - so many crazy people in little shoes and runners and no jackets. That's the mom in me talking. Love the mazes! Plus, 5 of them have all their entrances circled around a tower. Great place to sit while you keep track of who is in which maze. Our favorites: color maze that tells you your fortune. (Plus you need to find the dead ends to find the stamps which is opposite in a normal maze.). Musical maze with instruments throughout. Prepare for a long walk in the mile maze. Cedar one smells great. Lots to do that's included but like an amusement park they have other games you can buy tickets for i.e. pumpkin cannon and panning for gold which is original so we spent some money there. Enjoyed the show which had quite a few adults jokes thrown in and the kids enjoyed the puppet show but it was for a younger audience. Loved the spooky daytime hayride. Even screamed and put my hands up when it looked like something was going to fall on us. Kids screamed three times. Haunted house is dark and scary. Quite an experience. I was pooped from being 'ready' for anything and tensed up. My ten year olds found it too scary though but they are chickens who run from the room during cartoon movies. Monster train went around everywhere. The train would stop and the monsters would jump off, and give out mini chocolates if you danced for it. Bbq burger combos are great - loved corn and beans, buns and meat were fresh. There is a pavillian to eat and warm up in. And, they sell alcohol now! I had a spiced rum shocktail. It was good. Lastly, but certainly not least The Bouncy Pillows were still open end of October. So the kids started and ended the day at the pillows. Adults - you can jump too! Even if you just sit while everyone bounces you around, it's great. For four of us we spent $80 to get in - so worth it cause you could have brought all your food drinks and snacks. We chose to bring snacks and drinks and spent $41 more on a family fries that we ate when we watched the show, two combos that we shared, and 2 beavertails we shared as we were leaving. Plus I splurged and got the kids a $10 bag of dirt to pan. They give you extra sifters if you have more than 1 kid and you get a lot of jems in a $10 bag. Only complaint: wooden chairs in pavillion are wobbly and I was scared it would break. And, at the pirate ship there is a game but the answers are gone so we will never know if we were right. So lucky to have this so close to Ottawa. We will so be back.
This was our first year in a row going to Fright Fest right before Halloween. The $35 entrance fee is too steep. We waited 35 minutes in line to get our tickets and at least an hour and a half for the Haunted Hayride. There isn't much security staff and people constantly cut lines. The attractions are way oversaturated with people. Nothing is scary anymore because you're crammed against strangers who see everything seconds before you do. There are too many people there at once, lineups were blocking the main pathways and not monitored by staff. You can also only go through each attraction once for your $35 purchase. The graveyard shouldn't count as an attraction, nothing happens. All extra activities must be paid for on top of the admission fee and are ridiculously overpriced, as is the food being sold on site. We will not be returning.
HI, Thanks for your note and for taking the time to review our event. We greatly appreciate your feedback and especially direct feedback. It is through customer feedback that we learn about our guest experiences and to improve our event. The night you visited was the busiest in our history. We have been open for 1 month already and have not seen crowds like this at all. You visited on what is historically our peak night. Most nights we have MUCH less people visiting. We were staffed up to the max with over 130 staff. We had a full safety crew and paid duty Ottawa Police officers, however you are correct that we could have used more safety patrols in the lines. Please email [email protected]
We arrived at opening time on a Saturday. We got great parking and got in immediately. I hate Guly recommend purchasing tickets online. My kids enjoyed the mazes (we did 4 of them) and all the play structures. We did the pumpkin patch hayride and the haunted hayride (not recommended for kids under 10. ) we sat of the very front of the wagon wheel my kids couldn't see that well and they were fine (ages 5 and 7). There are games such as a corn blaster and paint ball at the arg-Cade. Prepare to spend money on these extras. I ordered the kids meal for my kids $5.50 for carrots, dip, milk, and a hotdog that was a third the size of a regular hotdog. I also ordered their french fries which were really amazing. The play this year was fun (included with admission). It held my kids attention and was fairly interactive the audience. It was a very fun day but a little on the pricey side.
HI, Thanks for taking the time to review our family Farm. We're glad you had a great time. We are always improving and adding new attractions and activities so next time you visit, we hope you have an even better experience. Have an amazing day! Mark Mark Saunders
I went to Saunders farm this weekend with my 7 year old grandson, we spent 5 1/2 hours of having fun. The mazes are great, the live theater for the kids is very entertaining, the pirate ship allways a big hit. The haunted hayride during the day was scary enough for my 7 year old grandson. The funhouse and pumpkin patch was colorful and priced right for pumpkin purchases. The picnic areas are very spacious. We could have stayed longer too but thanksgiving dinner was calling us back home. Well worth the 20$ each, we had a great great time, thank-you Saunder Farm
HI, Thanks for your review of our Farm. We greatly appreciate the feedback and kind words. Hope to see you again soon. Have an amazing day! Mark Saunders Saunders Farm
I attended Saunders Fright Night on October 10th with a group of 5. My fiance and I are huge "spoopy" attraction fans going to pretty much every attraction from Ottawa to Niagara. We consider ourselves experts at this point when it comes to hay-rides, haunted barns and jump scare trails. We had taken a break for the last 3 years from Saunders as we were finding it hard to swallow the $35/ person price. We both have gone numerous times over the last decade. At that price Saunders was ranking at the one of the most expensive single night Hallowe'en themed attractions near Ottawa. However this year we managed to score Friday the 13th tickets for $13 a person. Keep an eye out for this sale it happens in the summer via their Facebook. Our friends landed cheaper tickets as well at $28 dollars a person, getting them from a local costume shop. In the 3 years since going first thing we noticed is the massive amounts of upgrades they have included all through out the grounds. They have added 2 more major "Fright Sites": The Shambles and Camp Slaughter. 1 smaller attraction: The Graveyard and many new wood crafted food shacks. They have also added jumping pillows and the night we went an outdoor DJ as well as karaoke in the main pavilion. It was refreshing to see upgrades as we had spent years thinking where the revenue was going. (At $35 a person and how busy it can get closer to Hallowe'en one can wonder). All that being said, without too many obvious spoilers we will review each Fright Site and offer suggestions for improvements. Haunted Hayride: This is generally the busiest event of the night and we lucked out with a fast wait time. Perhaps adding other attractions shortened the wait. We loaded on the wagon and got seats at the very front near the tractor. The ride itself was fast and bumpy and both kids and adults were getting a kick out it. They have added a FANTASTIC improvement of music and spoopy sounds which gave it a fantastic atmosphere. Many new surprises and scenes were added as well. Our suggestion for this is to add more live actors. We once loved how the hay ride included a "tour guide" on board to creep everyone out. More live actors in the scenes could also really add to it as well. A heads up about being on the very front.. prepare yourselves for MUD. The fast tractor wheels will kick up mud... lots of it and it will get all over you/ in your hair etc. The Shambles: This was a new attraction for us and rated as the scariest one we went in with high expectations. This is a typical walk through a trail type of haunt however this one is very well done. The theme is fantastic and in our group of 5 we had many genuine scares. The live actors were great! The corn part made for a real horror movie vibe which we also loved. We couldn't think of anything to suggest to improve on for this one and it made for a great addition to the night! Camp Slaughter: This is another walk through trail with a different theme. This one is camp themed with many younger live actors. The walk itself we found too brightly lit and it was also close to the DJ music taking away any sense of spookiness. Our suggestion is to add additional soundtracks to give more of an eerie feeling. The live actors while all younger lacked a sense of creepiness as well. There is only so many times screaming in your face is scary. We found this one could use some work but it was still enjoyable! The Barn of Terror: This to us has always been a staple for Saunders and we wondered how they could improve with limited space and layout. We were greatly surprised to see that they did change things up in certain areas and somehow the layout seemed very different as well. The live actors were also great in this and our only suggestion again to add some spooky sounds. (The audio stimulation would really drive it home). Another addition that we were excited to see was The Graveyard. This a smaller walk around environment without any real scares. However this makes for PERFECT photos opportunity's and trust me when I say that it is BEAUTIFUL for those who love creepy graveyard scenes. It was easy to see the time, effort and cost put into this and it was GREAT. YOU MUST DO THE JUMPING PILLOWS. That's really all that needs to be said about these. As 4 late 20 somethings and a 50 something mom we spent way too much time on these laughing our faces off. We want to find how to get one installed in our backyard because they are a BLAST. We did eat food at the Beaver Tail stall as well as the main Pavilion which was reasonably priced and also pretty standard in taste. I was sure to grab a caramel apple on the way out which was delicious as well! The gift shop has been redone with the addition of a snack bar. We all felt that they really improved on food options as there were a TON of different places and things to eat. Overall with the amount of improvements and time spent on the grounds I can now say that FINALLY Saunders is worth $35 a person. Getting cheaper tickets is also an option and bringing a group makes for a very fun night!.
HI, Thank you for writing a review of our Farm. As you mentioned we have made many improvements in the past three years, include our biggest investment- a new commercial kitchen. We will continue to invest in improving farm and making it even better for our guests. Thanks again and have a great day. Mark
