A World of Terror Awaits as Dark Corner Launches VR Horror App
The app supports iOS, Android, Samsung Gear VR, Google Daydream, and Oculus Rift.
Last month VRFocus reported on Los Angeles-based virtual reality (VR) studio Dark Corner announcing its latest horror film Night Night as well as the official unveiling of its dedicated VR horror app. Now in the run up to Halloween and for fans of all things scary, the studio has now launched the app publicly.
Initially featuring eight immersive experiences that are both cinematic and hair-raising, the Dark Corner app, built using Vusr by Secret Location, will include Catatonic, Knives, Sonar, The Invisible Man, Burlap, The Peeler, Mule and 1157, with Night Night available on 19th October.
“Dark Corner is the new destination for thrilling experiences helmed by some of the most innovative filmmakers working in VR today,” said director and founder, Guy Shelmerdine. “While most entertainment VR apps offer a mixed bag of content, our goal is to deliver a highly curated selection of exhilarating experiences to a specific audience that loves genre in all its forms.”
Featuring both free and paid content from Dark Corner Studio as well as other filmakers, the Dark Corner app, is available for iOS, Android, Samsung Gear VR, Google Daydream, and Oculus Rift.
“We don’t claim to have all the answers about the future of VR, but we do know that people love to be terrified when they put on a headset,” added Teal Greyhavens, Head of Content for Dark Corner. “Our model is about providing a consistent stream of cinematic experiences that emphasize storytelling and suspense, while remaining accessible and engaging for mainstream audiences.”
As further content is added to the Dark Corner app, VRFocus will let you know.
