The Scarehouse in Pittsburgh, PA

The ScareHouse in Pittsburgh, PAThe ScareHouse, an elaborate haunted attraction located in Pittsburgh, PA (aka the “Zombie Capital of the World”), is an independently owned and self-financed labor of love which has been lucky enough to attract the attention and support of Guillermo del Toro, Mike Dougherty, and Legendary Entertainment.

Best of all? Everything was created in Pittsburgh by local horror nerds.

ScareHouse Creative Director Scott Simmons and Art Director Macabre Noir have collaborated with Trick ‘r Treat writer/director Michael Dougherty to create a truly unforgettable Halloween experience. Prepare to come face-to-face with Sam!

Thomas Tull, founder and CEO of Legendary Entertainment, visited ScareHouse last season with Michael and Guillermo del Toro. Guillermo said of ScareHouse: “With the sound design and the atmospherics, it is beautiful. I could live here!”

ScareHouse is up and running NOW on weekends with expanded dates coming in October.  It’s located at 118 Locust Street, Etna, PA 15223. Parking is available at the Pittsburgh Zoo and PPG Aquarium, 7340 Butler Street, Pittsburgh, PA 15206.

Note that no parking is available at ScareHouse itself so you should plan to arrive at the Zoo parking lot 30 minutes before the time listed on your ticket. Both parking and the ScareHouse shuttle service are completely free. Buses loop continuously from open until after the last guest has left ScareHouse.

Everything else you need to know can be found on the official ScareHouse website.

AHS 8 Will Be More Like ASYLUM and COVEN

Published

on

News has been steadily coming in regarding the upcoming 8th season of Ryan Murphy’s horror anthology series American Horror Story. It was just the other day that we let you guys know that Billie Lourd will be back for the new season, which begins shooting this June.

And today we have word via Deadline regarding just what the tone will be for this new season, rumored to be titled AHS: Radioactive.

It’s not necessarily as real and grounded as the past season,” Murphy said. “We’re sort of getting back to Asylum and Coven. That’s the tone of it.”

Personally, I really enjoyed the grounded tone of AHS: Cult and I think it helped rejuvenate the series. But then again, a return to the tone of perhaps the show’s most beloved season (AHS: Asylum) is just what the series needs in the long run.

Are you excited to hear AHS 8 will be going back to the tone of Asylum and Coven? Make sure to hit us up and let us know what you think in the comments below or on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram!

AHS Season 8 stars Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Billie Lourd, Kathy Bates, and new cast member Joan Collins, who will play Peters’ grandmother. Murphy has revealed he’s interested in casting Anjelica Huston (The Addams Family) as well.

Resident Evil 7: Biohazard Coming To Nintendo Switch In Japan This Week

Published

on

Although it’s already been home to a vast number of horror titles, the Nintendo Switch will finally come into the possession of the crown jewel of horror video games, as Capcom have confirmed that Resident Evil 7: Biohazard will be heading to the system on May 24. In Japan, at least.

Because of the limitations of the Switch hardware compared to both the PS4 and the Xbox One, the Switch version of Resident Evil 7 will only be playable by being streamed directly from Capcom’s online servers onto the physical console. Meaning that after the initial 45MB download, you’ll need to have an internet connection and be permanently online in order for it to work, so even though the Switch is a portable console hybrid, you unfortunately won’t be able to play Resident Evil 7 on the move.

In Japan, the Switch version of Resident Evil 7 will be known as Biohazard 7 Resident Evil Cloud Version, and will be priced at 2,000 yen (around $18). Once purchased, you’ll have access to the game for 180 days. There’s currently no word if you’ll be able to pay for a renewal once that time is up, or even if the Switch version will be released outside Japan, but Capcom have clearly come up with an ingenious solution to releasing more powerful games on less powerful systems, so we’re curious to see if their strategy of streaming games onto consoles catches on.
