From Haunted Houses to Zombies: The Most Frightening Scary Horror Games
Do you enjoy the adrenaline rush of being scared out of your wits? Are you a fan of horror movies and looking for a new way to experience fear? Look no further. In this article, we will explore some of the most terrifying scary horror games that will leave you trembling with fear. From haunted houses to zombies, these games will push your limits and keep you on the edge of your seat.
Haunted Houses: A Classic Thrill
If you’re a fan of haunted houses, then horror games that feature eerie mansions or abandoned buildings are sure to provide an exhilarating experience. One such game that comes to mind is “Resident Evil 7: Biohazard.” Set in a dilapidated plantation house in rural Louisiana, this game combines atmospheric horror with intense gameplay. As you navigate through dark corridors and solve puzzles, you’ll encounter grotesque creatures and terrifying jump scares that will keep your heart pounding.
Another notable haunted house game is “Amnesia: The Dark Descent.” In this first-person survival horror game, players find themselves trapped inside an ancient castle with no memory of how they got there. With limited resources and a lurking presence that feeds on fear, this game is guaranteed to make even the bravest players feel vulnerable and terrified.
Zombies: A Never-Ending Nightmare
Zombies have been a staple in horror culture for decades, and scary horror games featuring these undead creatures are always popular among thrill-seekers. One standout title in this genre is “The Last of Us.” Set in a post-apocalyptic world overrun by infected humans turned into zombies, this action-adventure game blends intense combat with an emotionally gripping storyline. The realistic graphics and immersive gameplay make every encounter with the infected a heart-pounding experience.
For those seeking a more intense zombie experience, “Resident Evil 2” is a must-play. This remake of the classic survival horror game takes players back to Raccoon City, where a zombie outbreak has turned the population into flesh-eating monsters. With its atmospheric setting and relentless undead enemies, this game will keep you on your toes as you fight for survival.
Psychological Horror: A Mind-Bending Challenge
If you prefer horror games that mess with your mind, then psychological horror games are perfect for you. “Silent Hill 2” is often regarded as one of the best examples of this subgenre. As players control James Sunderland through the foggy town of Silent Hill, they unravel a deeply disturbing story filled with symbolism and psychological torment. The game’s haunting atmosphere and psychological twists will leave you questioning reality long after you’ve put down the controller.
Another mind-bending horror experience is “Layers of Fear.” In this first-person exploration game, players step into the shoes of a disturbed painter as they navigate through a constantly changing mansion. Delving into themes of madness and obsession, this game uses clever storytelling and visual trickery to create an unsettling experience that will keep you guessing until the very end.
Survival Horror: Fight or Flight
For those who enjoy intense gameplay and heart-pounding action, survival horror games provide an adrenaline-fueled experience like no other. “Outlast” is a prime example of this genre. Armed only with a camcorder, players must navigate through an abandoned psychiatric hospital filled with deranged inmates. With no means to defend yourself other than hiding or running away, every encounter becomes a tense battle for survival.
Another standout survival horror game is “Alien: Isolation.” Set fifteen years after the events of Ridley Scott’s iconic film “Alien,” players assume the role of Ellen Ripley’s daughter as she tries to survive aboard a space station infested by one relentless xenomorph. The game’s AI-driven alien enemy constantly adapts to the player’s actions, making every encounter a nerve-wracking game of cat-and-mouse.
In conclusion, if you’re a fan of being scared senseless, these scary horror games will provide an unforgettable experience. Whether you prefer haunted houses, zombies, psychological torment, or survival challenges, there is a game out there that will cater to your darkest fears. So grab your controller and prepare for a night of terror as you dive into these spine-chilling virtual worlds.

Slaughterland is featured in—
In 1870, Sherman D. Phelps, who was the fifth mayor of the city of Binghamton, had a mansion built for him and his family. Every family member who lived in the house passed away just 12 years after moving in.
People have witnessed different spirits wearing appropriate clothing from the time period. On other occasions, it has been said that even though the clock has never been wound that there are random times when the clock chimes throughout the day. Others report doors opening and closing to people walking around the premises. These chills are waiting for you to witness for yourself. Special candlelight tours are offered in October or take a tour during the day throughout the year.
Not too far away, you’ll find the Roberson Mansion another local haunted history staple. This Gilded Age mansion was built in 1907 by Alonzo and Margaret Roberson. The mansion was entrusted to the community to become an education center after the passing of Alonzo and his wife so the Alonzo Roberson name would live on for centuries.
In fall 2019, during the decorating process of the Mansion by a staff worker and his family, there was an abrupt silence. During the silence, there was a noise from the first floor. What was the noise, you ask? Some think it was Alonzo clearing his throat suggesting they hit the road. Find out for yourself on your tour of the mansion. During October, there are guided ghost tours or take on a self-guided tour year round.
The Historic Bundy House
Built in 1892 for Harlow and Julia Bundy, the Bundy House has been home to many. Transforming over the years from a boarding house, office spaces and even a printing shop then restored into a museum, it is a hot spot for paranormal investigators.
The Bundy House regularly offers scheduled monthly ghost tours and allows paranormal investigation tours throughout the year.

William – 10 / 10 – October 12, 2019 Awesome scream park! I’m not scared easily but got scared a few times where I actually jumped and …show more even ran!!! The cannibal village was the best. The guy in the trailer and the chainsaw guy (he got us twice) were awesome as well as the inbred guy in the pig pit. The 3D attraction was my other favorite. It really pops right out at you and good scares in there as well! You have to stay for some beer at the midway by the HUGE bonfire.

Tour the Mansion by lantern light and experience the stories of the souls who once resided here... and perhaps still do. There’s tales aplenty of encounters that staff and visitors alike have had within this Gilded Age Mansion. What’s perhaps more chilling is the history of the people and their status which confined them to live as specters of the past.
The Roberson Mansion was built in 1907 by Alonzo and Margaret Roberson. When they moved in they were past their 40s, so no heir was expected to inherit such a lavish home. But rather than pass as another empty shell of a time long past (a fate which befell many of the homes along Front Street), Alonzo decided to entrust the Mansion to the community to be made into an educational center bearing his name. So, the name Alonzo Roberson would live on for generations to come and his name would become synonymous with generosity.
The most recent haunting at the museum occurred in late fall 2019, when a staff member and his family were decorating for an upcoming event. They were working well into the night. All others had left. And as they decorated a room on the second floor together, they all heard a cut in the silence—a man clearing his throat from the first floor. The Robersons were known for appreciating their privacy, perhaps this was Alonzo’s way of saying, “It’s time for you leave now.”

8 Haunted Places Around SUNY Binghamton You Need To Visit
Once it hits October, I go into serial Halloween mode, no question about it. I love fall, and the general atmosphere it gives off. The air is fresh, the apples are better, and everything just starts to get more calm and beautiful. I always just want to sit down and watch all the scary movies I can find, roast marshmallows over a warm campfire, and watch the leaves change gradually. The whole season of fall just makes me feel a little bit better after the too-hot days of summer. In honor of October and Halloween coming up, here are some haunted places around SUNY Binghamton that are worth checking out to get you in the mood for fall!
1. Parkview Restaurant- Owego, NY
This restaurant, only 20 minutes away from Binghamton University, was built in 1867. The current owner bought the building in 2011 and renovated it with her husband. She reports that she found a hidden sealed room in the building, and sometimes hears the sound of an unexplained ringing bell. The restaurant has also hosted Owego’s Zombie Fest in the past. Parkview welcomes those who would like to tour the building; all you need to do is schedule an appointment.
2. Utica Lunatic Asylum- Utica, NY
Home to patients who experienced forced lobotomies, the Utica Lunatic Asylum, also known as The Main, is definitely one of the more disturbing haunted places around SUNY Binghamton. The asylum is set on a beautiful 130 acres, but what lies inside is not as pretty. Known for their use of a caged coffin bed, the Utica Crib, and intense medical procedures, the asylum was open from 1843 to 1978. Tours are free, but in 2016 they were only offered on two dates in June, so seeing the inside of this historical landmark can be tricky.
3. Sherwood Hotel- Greene, NY
Built on the site of the Chenango House, which burned down in 1905, the Sherwood Hotel is said to have some haunting activity. Rooms 206 and 207 are said to be haunted by Rebecca, a girl who killed herself in at the hotel. An unidentified maid was also killed in a fire in the 1960’s, which just adds to the suspicion for most that the weird things that happen around the hotel are due to spirits. Faucets have been known to turn on and off randomly, as well as the elevator doors opening sporadically. The building is currently up for sale, but that doesn’t mean you can’t take a visit and decide for yourself if the Sherwood is truly haunted.
4. Bundy Museum- Binghamton, NY
For this haunted trip, you won’t have to travel too far; just to downtown Binghamton. The museum was originally the home of Harlow E. Bundy in 1904, and was later opened as the museum in 2004. Multiple ghost investigations have been conducted in the museum, and apparitions have been reported in the second floor windows. People have also reported feeling uneasy in the African Art Exhibit in the basement of the building. The museum is open Tuesdays to Saturdays weekly.
5. Houdini Museum- Scranton, PA
About an hour away from Binghamton, the Houdini museum is home to a bunch of remarkable Houdini memorabilia. The museum has been featured on many television shows, and holds daily magic shows. Supposedly the building may be haunted, but mostly this attraction is good for the haunted séances they hold every Saturday. If you’re in to magic, mystery and séances, this is the creepy place for you.
6. 1890 House Museum- Cortland, NY
The 1890 house dates back to, you guessed it, 1890, when Chester Franklin Wickwire had it built, inspired by a house he had seen in New York City. The house is 15000 square ft., housing a few exhibits and hosting events. It was later bought by Cortland County, and turned into the museum that it is. The museum was featured on SyFy’s Ghost Hunters, and has attracted many tourists interested in ghost hunting. It is the most famous of the haunted places around SUNY Binghamton. Workers and guests of the museum have reported recording mysterious voices, as well as seeing floating orbs. Definitely worth the trip to see as its only 50 minutes away from Binghamton University.

7. willard asylum- willard, ny.
Originally the home to the Agricultural College that would become Cornell University once it moved, Willard Asylum dates back to 1860. It only functioned as an asylum from 1869 to 1995, housing thousands of patients. On site is a cemetery that holds about 6000 bodies, mostly identified by numbers rather than their names. Suitcases found in the attic of the asylum were the basis of the book “The Lives They Left Behind: Suitcases from a State Hospital Attic,” by Darby Penney, Peter Stastny, and Lisa Rinzler. The asylum also happens to hold a bowling alley of all things. Tours for the asylum are held once a year, but none will be held in 2016 due to safety issues. More tours are being considered for 2017, and it definitely seems to be worth the wait to see this one.
8. Spook Hill- Middlesex, NY
This location is a little different from the rest, not being a hotel, house, or even a building at all. But, that doesn’t make it any less strange. This hill, located 2 hours from Binghamton University is one of the weirdest phenomena. Supposedly, if you park your car on a specific part of the hill, and then switch your car to neutral, the car will go backwards up the hill all on its own. Some believe this is possible because spirits are pushing the car up the hill, and the fact that there is an Indian burial ground nearby helps to perpetuate that theory. It may not be a haunted house, but this phenomenon is creepy enough to have to check out. Get out there and visit these haunted places around SUNY Binghamton!
