Blast From the Past: Project Zero

Project Zero, (also known as Fatal Frame and Zero), is about a young girls brother who went missing after he ventured into Himuro Mansion, (a place that was rumoured to have been involved in "occultist activities" some time during the later part of the 19th century). Armed with only her mother’s antique camera, (which, as it happens, has the power to capture ghosts), she enters the mansion in search of her brother.

Using some impressive visual techniques and the kind of oppressive, foreboding atmosphere found in many a modern, psychological horror movie currently being produced in Japan, Project Zero is a genuinely frightening experience and is arguably the most terrifying video game of all time.

Certainly scared the crap out of me, so much so that I’ve never gotten around to finishing it!
