The Sound of the Scare Presents: 'The Walking Dead Cosplay: Piano' Episode 1


It's been a while since The Sound of the Scare has been on Cassie Carnage's House of Horror. This week, I present to you "Cosplay: Piano," featuring the opening title song from "The Walking Dead" TV show.

The pianist is the Russian born Sonya Belousova, and boy is she talented. Sonya is an award winning composer and pianist, and it shows in this video. You can listen to more of her music at her website, here

I really love the song when the violin joins in though, it's breathtaking! 

Check it out!

No Zombies Appear in the Official 'World War Z' Trailer



The "World War Z" official trailer hit the Internet this week and I have to say, I'm not really impressed by it.

The movie looks like a generic action film, complete with helicopter and airplane crash sequences. But what is more telling about the film is not what is in the trailer, but what is not, and I could not help but notice that not a single zombie appears in the trailer. Not one.

That's right, yours truly has had not just one, but two articles published in Shadowland Magazine. The first article was in Shadowland #6 and was titled "The Walking Dead: The Game" is Survival Horror at its Finest."

The current issue, Shadowland #7, has my thoughts on "Resident Evil 6"  titled "Capcom's Resident Evil 6 is Plagued by Problems."

Here's a sneak preview of the article:

Four Things that Capcom and EA can learn from the Success of 'Slender: 8 Pages'


Dear Capcom and EA, guess what?

You can make a scary survival horror game that is popular and scary by scaling back the encounters, removing the ammo and guns, and focusing on the environment and puzzles-- something Capcom used to do very well and should return to in the Resident Evil Series, and something that EA's "Deadspace" did quite well up until the third installment of the series.

OK Capcom, EA, pay attention. I'm going to share a secret with you, it's the winning formula for a horror video game:


Tension + Variability + Vulnerability + Being Alone = Fear



Did you get that? Good. Now here's four reasons why it works.

Top 3 Children's Horror Book Series that I Loved as a Kid



Long before I loved horror movies, I loved reading horror novels. Without horror novels, the modern horror movie as we know it never would've existed, which is why I'm dedicating the entire month of March to them with my National Reading Month Blog Event.
