Are you a part of the zombination? No? Well, click on that link and you’ll be taken to a website that will surround you by the horror that are zombie games!

Zombination is a database of online (bloody) games which are separated by categories that include Scary Games, Zombie Games, Vampire Games, Scooby Doo Games, Monster High Games, Killing Games, Halloween Games, Escape Games, Detective Games, and Bloody Games. These games feature a wide variety of styles such as arcade, puzzle, spoof, and even classic games. There is something for all horror loving gamers. Lets take a closer look at some of the games featured in different categories.

First off I headed to the Scary Games category. The first thing I noticed were multiple games based off popular horror movies; “Michael Myers Rampage Game” based off Halloween, “Seed of Chucky” based on the Child’s Play series, “The Grudge Game” and “The Grudge 2”, and “Saw 4 Trapped”. Another game was based off the classic Where’s Waldo book series. The rest of the games in this category were a mix of original and inspired by horror games including “13 Days in Hell”, “Hidden Zombie”, “The Chainsaw”, “Ouja Board”, and “Horror House”, to name a few.

Moving on I headed to my favorite category, Zombie Games, which has 17 different games. Two of the games are based on movies; George Romero’s Land of the Dead and Zombieland. Other games in this database section and embedded on the website include “Curse Village”, “Blow Up Zombies” (pictured above), “Zombie Trailer Park” and “Against the Dead”.

One of the categories (all listed above) that stands out the most is Scooby Doo Games. There are twelve different Flash games in this section, including “Ghost Pirate Attacks”, “Creepy Castle”, “Monster Madness”, and “Terror in Tikal” to name a few. I love the animated Scooby Doo series (could care less about the movies) and while the games are all very basic, they are also fun time killers.

I love that Zombination has brought a lot of free online games together in one easy to find website. They are fast loading and easy to play. Check it out on a rainy or otherwise boring afternoon.

halloween

We hope that everyone has a happy, safe, and scary Halloween! Ill be doing my usual Halloween Horror Movie Marathon, and what horror marathon could be complete without the original Night of the Living Dead? Enjoy…

Casper MovieI appreciate the guest post, Graig Brooks.

It just wouldn’t be Halloween without watching the film Casper. The first time I watched Casper was the first time I truly believed there could be friendly ghosts out there. It was a little sad to think that children passed away before their time and that they remain with unfinished business. It’s a great film but when you think about the story behind it, it can really be sad. I really enjoy watching Casper on the Satellite tv Clawson near Halloween. Casper also stars Bill Pullman who happens to be one of my favorite actors. He is more known for his role in movies such as Independence Day and Lake Placid, but he shows some serious range in Casper as well.

There are actually a couple different Casper movies. My second favorite would have to be when Casper Meets Wendy. This film stars Hilary Duff and America’s favorite friendly ghost. It’s all about acceptance and being who you are. Just because you look like a monster doesn’t mean you have to act like one. Casper is a teenage boy who tragically lost his life and wishes more than ever he could be alive and be with Kat.

Scooby Doo

Guest post by Quincy Lester.

Scooby-Doo is one of the great cartoon programs in the history of television. It is show of mystery and intrigue that has captured the imaginations of children of all ages with its cast of fun characters and autistic dog. Sticking to a formula of scary phantoms and twist endings, Scooby-Doo stands on its own when compared to Hitchcock movies and modern gore based horror.

The pinnacle of all Scooby-Doo shows is the “What’s New, Scooby-Doo?” Halloween special. Like peanut butter and jelly, Abbott and Costello, it was only natural that Scooby-Doo and Halloween would be a match made in heaven. The plot centers around the sultry nerd Velma and a surprise visit from her relatives, but the get together is ruined when the town is inundated with ghosts and crows. This is the part where it gets really interesting, as the audience is then forced to debate what is more scary: real beasts of the night or the fantastical phantoms we invent in our minds. It is a philosophical question of the higher accord. We must deduce whether it is fear itself that scares us, or things that are actually fearsome. Of course, as Scooby-Doo shows are wont to do, the scariest thing always turns out to be greed, as we learn that most of the ghosts are actually capitalists trying to scare kids for monetary gain.

I watched the Scooby-Doo special on the Cartoon Network on satellite TV from Cannon Satellite.
