Published

Happy Halloween

Here at Dread Central you find a lot of haunted attractions being covered with Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights and Knott’s Scary Farm garnering the lion’s share of the coverage for California and Florida. But there are so many other ridiculously spooky places out there which we love so it’s time to give them some much needed recognition and love. Read on for our Top 13 picks of some of the scariest shows on Earth you should be visiting this Halloween season.

# 1  – Netherworld Haunted House – Atlanta, Georgia

Our number one pick is an overwhelming thrill-packed, supercharged Halloween horror show that has been winning awards and dominating Atlanta, Georgia, for 19 years. Every October huge crowds come from all over the country to see Netherworld and to soak up the combination of incredible production value and absolute nightmares that it provides. Customers and haunted house industry experts agree that this terrifying attraction is the most elaborate, creative, and influential haunt around. Famous for custom monsters, new themes every year, impressive special effects, and an unrivaled collection of props and artifacts, it is the freaky actors and gut-wrenching makeup that put Netherworld at the head of the class.

#2 – Haunted Overload – Lee, New Hampshire

When it comes to the essence of Halloween, Haunted Overload, a home haunt turned professional attraction, is second to none. Located on a farm in New Hampshire, this is almost more of a haunted playground of giant wooden structures celebrating the fall season, a love song to Halloween, than it is a traditional haunted house. Multi-story monsters, hundreds of fresh carved pumpkins, and a volunteer staff of ghouls and witches lurk in the forests and in off-kilter buildings that cover the grounds. A clammy mist and creepy lighting make the place into a surreal haunted wonderland permeated by the nostalgic smell of the Halloween bonfire.

#3- Headless Horseman Hayrides and Haunted Houses – Ulster Park, New York

Another fall event based on a farm, Headless Horseman Hayrides and Haunted Houses is a virtual Halloween theme park, containing an astounding hayride, a scary corn maze, and multiple haunted houses on the property. Guests can also shop at themed gift shops, enjoy tasty treats at assorted eateries, and see a ghoulish stageshow before their encounter with the dread Headless Horseman. Well known for changing large parts of the hayride and haunted houses, this attraction keeps ‘em coming back every season to see what new terrors the haunts designers have created.

Troy Baker and Emily O’Brien Confirmed For Death Stranding

Published

on

While there’s still no release date for Hideo Kojima’s mysterious Death Stranding, there have been regular(-ish) updates for the sci-fi/horror game. These little tidbits act not only as seeds of information but also as additions to the overall mystery surrounding the game, which is basically what gets Kojima’s all hot and bothered.

Last night, actress Emily O’Brien posted a photo on her Instagram where she revealed that she has been working on Death Stranding alongside Norman Reedus and another actor who is renowned in the gaming community: Troy Baker. No description of either of their characters’ roles were revealed in the description, which leads to the “mystery” part of the story. With Reedus already being shown as the main character, Mads Mikkelsen as the villain, and Guillermo del Toro having a role of unknown size, I’m curious where Baker and O’Brien fit into the story. With side characters having just as much importance as mains in many games these days, you never know what kind of impact these actors will have on the greater story.

Baker is known for playing Joel in The Last of Us as well as Samuel Drake in Uncharted 4, Booker DeWitt in Bioshock: Infinite, and Bruce Wayne in Batman: The Telltale Series, as well as a great deal more. O’Brien has offered her voice in titles such as League of Legends, Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series, and Paranormal Activity: The Lost Soul, as well as acted in film and TV.

Below is a fascinating dive into Death Stranding from my pal RagnarRox.

Toy Fair 2018: Storm Collectibles Proudly Display their Mortal Kombat Figures

Published

on

One of the goriest franchises in the history of gaming will soon be playable in a different way, because Storm Collectibles have revealed a ton of new Mortal Kombat action figures at Toy Fair.

Fans of the ultraviolent fighting franchise might want to start fighting back their nerd boners, because Storm’s new figure line includes some of the most popular characters from the series, including Ermac, Shao Kahn, Rain, Smoke, Reptile, and Goro, although I was personally a little let down to see that the smooth movie star Johnny Cage appears to be absent.

Toy Ark posted a series of photos of the highly-detailed figures from the event, and we can probably expect them to arrive in stores soon. Since the release of the first game all the way back in 1992, the Mortal Kombat franchise has sold a combined total of 35 million copies in addition to generation over $5 billion in revenue, so these toys will keep the ravenous fanbase happy until the inevitable announcement of Mortal Kombat XI.
