There are tons of mind-bendingly strange and confounding computer games available from the Steam community… but the H.P. Lovecraft-inspired, elegantly nightmarish “cult simulator” THE SHROUDED ISLE stands out as kind of brilliant in its doom-filled weirdness. Designed by Kitfox Games (the team behind MOON HUNTERS and SHATTERED PLANET), the scenario of ISLE is deceptively straightforward: […]

Rediscovering SOMETHING EVIL — Steven Spielberg’s “Lost” Film!

Long before Steven Spielberg found his groove directing award-winning biopics and big-budget family films, it seemed like — if only for a moment — the young auteur might settle comfortably into a life of delivering audiences straight up genre pictures. It may be hard to believe now, young readers, but the sprawling blockbusters we associate […]
