Dark Corner Releases 4 New Horror Films for Halloween
The app supports iOS, Android, Samsung Gear VR, Google Daydream, Oculus Rift, and Oculus Go.
Dark Corner Studio was founded by a love of all things scary and frightening. The Los Angeles-based studio released its horror app of the same name for virtual reality (VR) headsets in 2017 to embrace the darker side of immersive film making, and October provides the perfect time for it to release new content. To celebrate Halloween, Dark Corner has released four new experiences to send shivers down your spine.
For this spooky season horror fans will be able to enjoy the exclusive international release of Tag Along, animal POV experience Oh Deer, terrifying ghost story Horomaru, and The Office, a fun-filled horror short.
“VR filmmaking is now becoming so popular around the world that we are seeing an awesome surge in innovative and memorable experiences,” said Head of Content Teal Greyhavens in a statement. “These four films are so different, but each one of them is startling or thrilling in a way that we loved. I’m especially excited about our exclusive release of the Tag Along VR experience, a bloody and beautifully shot haunted house story that will definitely give you goosebumps.”
“October is our favorite time of year for Dark Corner, and we’re excited to expand our slate with these thrilling films, as well as continuing to forge new partnerships with other VR outlets and LBE venues all around the world,” added CEO Guy Shelmerdine.
A synopsis of the films are as follows:
- Tag Along – A blood-spattered haunted house story from Taiwan, director Pu-Yuan Cheng and producer Shin-Chi Chen have created a short horror experience that expands the mythology of this hit Taiwanese franchise. Get ready to enter the haunted home of the demon Mosien, if you dare…
- Oh Deer – The first foray into VR for Swedish director Peter Pontikis, Oh Deer is a stark, minimalist POV experience. It’s an exercise in suspense and divided attention, placing the viewer in the perspective of a wounded animal as hunters close in from all sides.
- Horomaru – An indie haunted house story from South Korea by director Jae-gyun Hong. Three young ghost hunters with plans to upload their 360 footage for viral internet views go exploring in an abandoned mansion. What they don’t realize is that the house used to host grisly sacrificial rites; “Horomaru” refers to “the ritual of sacrificing a living human to a ghost or demon.”
- The Office – A popular horror short from the prolific European VR studio Inside360, directed by Miguel Temme. The viewer takes the POV of an office worker about to head home for the day…when suddenly mysterious things start to happen all around you.
All four of the films are available now through the Dark Corner app which you can get on Oculus Rift, Oculus Go, Samsung Gear VR, and Google Daydream headsets. For further content updates, keep reading VRFocus.
