Doki Doki Literature Club: Psychological Meta Horror Gaming

Jun 19, 2018 No Comments by

Doki Doki Literature Club! is a visual novel developed by Team Salvato and released in September 2017. It’s a game I’d heard about in passing, and it’s almost impossible to wander far on the internet without running into a meme or reference to it as the game enjoys a rather large cult following. Maybe that’s […]

Horror Short Film Reviews: LUCKY GIRL and WHITE DRIFT

Feb 27, 2017 No Comments by

In my time writing for Ravenous Monster, I’ve watched many screeners for various independent films, but my most recent batch represents my first foray into short films – an art form that perhaps doesn’t receive as much attention as it should. I think there’s a general impression of short films as training wheels for aspiring […]

A couple of years ago, I reviewed a movie called Gut by writer/director Elias. The movie’s stuck in my head ever since, and not just because it was the first screener I had the pleasure of reviewing for Ravenous Monster.

Until Dawn Video Game Review

Apr 14, 2016 No Comments by

There’s an emerging genre of video game that has swiftly become my favorite storytelling medium. They’re calling it the “interactive drama adventure game” – a mouthful that generally refers to a story-based game whose mechanics revolve around making plot-changing decisions. If you remember my review of TellTale’s The Walking Dead, it was one of these. […]
