  1. Scream Team: Six Ghoulish Projects for Halloween

    Halloween is one of our favorite holidays. The dressing up, the customizing-of-snacks into spooky versions, and the haunted home decor — it's all best if you do it DIY-style and get weird in the process. In honor of this crafty-creepy date, here's a roundup of our favorite scary projects, ranging from the merely spirited to the very undead. 

    Sam & Mattie's Teen Zombie Movie & Making-Of Documentary

    Sam and Mattie are best friends. For awhile now, they've been working on the most epic teen zombie movie ever — some of the storyboards include a police chase on skateboards, selfie-taking on jetpacks, and a zombie yacht fight. This project is to make the film, exactly as Sam and Mattie envision it, as well as a behind-the-scenes doc about how it all comes together. We really want to see it happen. 

    ZoZo Skeleton Hand Planchette 

     If you're determined to summon the spirit world, why not do so in bone-chilling style? This Ouija board planchette (that's the name for the thing you place your fingers on) is in the shape of a legit skeleton hand, so when you move it, the finger points at the letters on the board. It's pretty much guaranteed to make your seance scarier.

    Ouija in Emoji with Emouija Board 

    But what if your ghost is hypermodern, preferring to communicate in pictograms over old-fashioned spelling? This is the Ouija board for you. Enough said, we think. 

    CLIVE BARKER: IMAGINER Vol. 2 Art Book

    For decades, author and fantasy artist Clive Barker has been conjuring imagined realms and bringing them to life in vivid, unsetting images. This is the second volume of his incredible, sometimes disturbing artwork, bound together in a book.

    HAUNTERS — The Movie

    Ever wonder about the people who make haunted houses happen? They're fearless craftspeople with skill and style, and they've made it their job to scare you. This fascinating documentary is all about them.

    MICROFEARS: Tiny Dioramas Based on Iconic Horror Scenes

    Career sculptor Jason Bakutis is making tiny, super-detailed dioramas based on scenes in classic horror. There's a minuscule mummy, a diminutive Bigfoot (the contradiction!), and even a wee swinging axe a la The Pit and the Pendulum. And if you want, you can get them unassembled and satisfy your inner garage kit enthusiast at the same time.

  2. Pixel Harvest: 8 Brilliant Video Game Projects

    There are a staggering number of surreal explorations, biofeedback fear monitors, and fruit-based satires funding on Kickstarter right now. Here are some of our favorite projects in the Video Games category, with a gaming hardware project thrown in for good measure.

    No Pineapple Left Behind 

    A game about de-unionized schools and tropical fruit. Satirical, topical, and (rare in games) funny!

    The Black Glove 

    An eerie, surrealistic, first-person game experience from an independent team of developers who helped make BioShock and BioShock Infinite. Enter a bizarre art world and change the way artists create.

    Black the Fall 

    Navigate through this chiaroscuro post-apocalyptic world, like a strange and unexpected black-and-white dream.

    Impact Winter 

    Another post-apocalypse to explore, this time in a world buried by an unceasing winter.

    Charles Dexter Ward 

    Senscape, the team behind the acclaimed horror adventure games Scratches, Serena, and Asylum, has returned from the nether gulfs of nightmare to bring you the first officially licensed game based on the legendary works of H. P. Lovecraft. This point-and-click adventure is a faithful and painstakingly researched adaptation of The Case of Charles Dexter Ward.

    The Flame in the Flood 

    In this post-civilization game, you travel by foot and by raft down a procedurally generated river as you scrounge for resources, make tools, remedy afflictions, evade the vicious wildlife, and most importantly, stay ahead of the coming rains.

    Nevermind 

    A biofeedback-enhanced horror adventure game that takes you into the dark and twisted world within the subconscious minds of psychological trauma victims. As you explore surreal labyrinths and solve puzzles of the mind, a biofeedback sensor monitors how scared or stressed you become. If you let your fears get the best of you, the game becomes harder.

    Mad Genius Controllers 

    Mad Genius uses a dedicated motion capture system that allows both halves of the controller to know exactly where they are in the room. It uses this information to add motion play to unmodified consoles and PCs, while preserving the use of standard buttons and sticks.
