Two of my favorite topics – Games & Horror Movies. Glad to have a combination of both and present you some interesting horror movies based on video games. Video games are inspiration for many, especially horror movies, they adapt the theme and visualise it as a movie. To prepare a good list I made some research online and I was quite disappointed with the results.
The truth is, I’m not actually able to find any good horror movies based on video games. Quite shocked, but I managed to prepare a list containing some worthy movies and I avoided some which may not be good or interesting to you.
