Ah, the 90s. A simpiler time when horror movies were as rampant and accessible to children as pornography would become twenty years later.
Hell, horror was practically kid-friendly. There were Talking Freddy dolls, Jason made talk show appearances and horror anthologies were still all over basic cable. And then there were the video games. As far back as Atari, horror franchises have made attempts to become interactive experiences. Both Halloween and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre had titles for the Atari 2600. But the ones people seem to remember the most fondly, despite them not being very good, were A Nightmare on Elm Street and Friday the 13th for the NES. Both games featured our favorite slashers and a bevy of zombies, rats and demonic forces trying to keep you from your ultimate goal: defeating the villian. Well now we can relive the good old days of fighting pixels from Hell in The Barn, a new retro side scroller created by the team that made the new film of the same name.
