    Cool MAME games with a Horror, monster or Gothic theme?

    OK, I know the obvious ones, I am working on a video project and I want to compile a lit of MAME arcade games that have a Horror or Monsters and Gothic theme and feel to theme. OK there are the obvious ones like Splatter House and Ghost n Goblins etc, PLEASE help anyone who can come up with others, kudos and bonus points for lesser known and obscure titles that fit the category! THANKS IN ADVANCE FOR ANY AND ALL PARTICIPANTS!

    Chiller - an older light gun game that was horror themed.
    House of the Dead - a newer light gun game that was horror themed, spawned numerous sequels.
    Darkstalkers - Fighting game with a few classic horror influences.

    These next ones are a SPECIAL kind of scary....

    Boonga-Boonga - Recreates the horror of anal rape.
    Cho Aniki - Umm....well.....a picture is worth a thousand words, right?

    Unfortunately, Chiller doesn't emulate too well. The game itself is terrible, but as a discussion piece, it's fantastic. Also check out Haunted Castle, it's sort of like Castlevania. For an added giggle, check out this horrendous operator flyer:

    Altered Beast, Time Killers, and Sinistar (gave me nightmares as a kid anyway) come to mind right off the bat.

    Original Splatter House fits the theme. So too does Satan's Hollow, Zombie Raid and the Dark Stalkers series.

    Boon-ga Boon-ga isn't quite anal rape, not exactly. It's something called Kancho that makes me quite happy to live on the opposite side of the world from Japan.

    Scroll down to the August 31 entry near the bottom of the page for a bit more information about the horror.
