Here on Dread we love when horror fans make their own faux NES video games, and we’ve been delighted to come across many of them in our travels around the interweb. Today a brand spankin’ new one has come to our attention, and you Italian horror lovers out there are absolutely going to love it!
We’re in the midst of website Doc Terror’s annual Italian Horror Week, which is loaded with all sorts of fun content written by some of the biggest and best in the online horror community.
As part of the festivities, James Harris and artist Frank Browning put together a particularly epic series of NES games inspired by the films of gore-master Lucio Fulci. Centering on Fulci’s “Gates of Hell Trilogy,” the three faux games are based on House by the Cemetery, City of the Living Dead and The Beyond; and the sheer amount of work that went into fleshing the games out and making them seem real is quite staggering.
Below you’ll find an extended trailer for the faux games featuring awesome MIDI versions of Fulci’s scores, and we encourage you to head over to Doc Terror for full details about each game, which will have you itching to play them!
