Trash-man - Possibly New Horror meme?
The other night I watched the 4th episode of a new X-files series entitled 'Home Again'. I'm not much of a fan of the series, but this episode attracted my attention just because it featured a really cool monster, so you might want to take a look at it. It's called "Trash-man" or originally "Band-Aid Nose Man".
Why TrashMan is actually a very cool monster?
Band-aid nose man is kind of a work of art that's come to life. He is an urban legend around the streets, especially among the homeless people. The drawings of the Trashman appear and disappear randomly on the street walls. Most likely the drawing disappears from the wall when he is about to commit a murder. He is the protector of the homeless people, so his intentions might be good it's just he's been misdirected a little bit. He's just got more radical and brutal sense for justice.
Here're some cool features:
- His footprints have no ridges
- Samples collected from the crime scene leave no organic or inorganic materials identified
- Trashman rips his victims apart like they’re paper. Head usually ends up in a kitchen bin while the rest of the human parts he carefully collects and puts inside his trash compactor.
- When Trashman approaches, his appearance induces electrical interferences. Lights and radio go crazy.
- There's no escape from him. Guns don't work. Walls don't stop him.
- He leaves big smelly trail behind as an indication of his recent presence.
- As another indication of his presence you can find green sticky mucus stains filled with worms on the floor.

What horror games are coming in 2016?
I can't promise best 20 or top 5 before I actually try them all out. I just wanted to make a list of games that you might want to pay attention to this year (2016). Some of them are already out, other are upcoming, while some I might add to the list later on. Any proposals?
Layers of Fear
has released an early access version of their game and it picked up a huge amounts of press thanks to selection of youtubers that featured playthroughs of the game on their channel. Layers of Fear is a game that plunges a player into the unstable mind of an insane painter thirsting for inspiration for his next masterpiece. The house you play in is constantly shifting and morphing as your character is subjected to hallucinations and encounters with creepy ghouls and demon-like creatures.
The long anticipated sequel to Red Barrel psychological horror title Outlast has promised to deliver new and refined scares while staying true to the original atmosphere projected in Outlast 1. Set completely apart from the asylum we explored in the first game, we have the opportunity to get to know different characters in a completely different setting. The violence and depravity of human nature will still be a large overarching theme of the game.
Hektor - indie game (already available)
Hektor is a single player indie horror game released on steam March '13. The cool part about the game is that the walls in Hector game are not randomly generated, walls and rooms are actually altered as you play, which makes for really cool mechanic. The basic goal is to escape from wherever you are by solving pretty basic puzzles, normally involving finding an object to complete the task. This game is far more story focused than other indie horror games.
This is direct download link - didn't try it though: https://archive.org/download/Hektor_201503/Hektor-FLT.rar
AR Survival Horror
Night Terrors is augmented reality survival horror game and personally my favorite one (this and Alison Road ). When the demon chases you, you will run away. When the girl calls your name, you will follow. Save the girl and survive. If you don't see what happens.
"You hear the familiar click of interference. A young girl tortured in another world needs your help". According to the game developer Bryan Mitchel words, this game is trying to give an answer to a simple question: "Why are we still waiting for that really great augmented reality game? Where are those games that are so believable and so immersive that you're afraid to play them?".
Alison Road looks like it's paying homage to PT (Playable Teaser, Silent Hills series) while being it's own original story. It looks awesome. Even though it doesn't carry the Silent Hill name, it doesn't have to. It has the same spirit, and that is what is really important and who knows, maybe Alison Road will lead to its own franchise of scary sequels. And rather than dream and wander of what possibly could have been with the now collapsed Silent Hills, they're filling the void and we now at least will be able to play a spiritual successor and enjoy a whole new creepy gaming experience.

If you wandered if there's gonna be Five Nights At Freddy's 5 - the straight answer is NO!
According to the Scott Cawthon's announcement on Steam, FNAF 4 was the last game in the series. You can read the announcement here.
If you recall, the 4th game ended by posting an image on sctottgames that says THE END - Thanks for playing. That was the first signal.
Secondly, Scott announced that he's working now on a new game called "FNAF World".
As you can see from the trailer, except for the reused characters it has nothing to do with the series. This is a completely new game, an RPG where you create a party with tons of characters. So, despite promising intro, this game is not going to be a horror.
I've even seen some online petition where they ask Scott to make another sequel, but he's determined in not wanting to do it. So, don't trust the rumours and false fan-made sequels, as we should consider this story finished, and simply move on.
And what do you think? Is this just a Scott's trick to lead us to false conclusion and surprise us at some point with another instance of the game? I think - not gonna happen.
Slender Maze - Scary Prank - Free Android Game
I've stumbled upon this one the other day on the Amazon. One of the many Slender's AUs. Picked it up for simple concept - scary maze prank reworked in Slender-man style. Probably not one of the best Slendy's incarnations, but it was nice to realize the old school cheap maze jumpscares still work. Or maybe not.
Anyway, here's a couple of screenshots, and there's also a download link below.
Slender Maze is an old-school scary maze prank reworked in Slender man style. It gives the best of the two most spread international memes.
In this game you guide a black dote, with your finger, from the start to the 'operator symbol' - a circle with an "X" drawn through it. Each time you reach the symbol you will get one page collected. Allegedly there are 4 pages to collect. At some point, a scary image pops up, giving you or your friend a major jump-scare.
The game also utilizes several tension build-up sound effects which add up to the atmosphere.
