Sony’s upcoming Move-enhanced game Until Dawn seemed like a slasher fan’s dream game: sexy teenagers, a snowbound cabin in the woods, and a crazy bag-faced killer looked like a fun slice of 80’s cheese. However, the latest teaser trailer for the game from G4 looks like something a little more recent in its presentation.
The mangled film stock effect? The rust-caked traps that will slowly but surely maim and mutilate its intended victims? The ominous instructions at the end? I smell some SAW fans on the staff at Supermassive Games, which means that Until Dawn might be less a love-letter to 80’s teen horror and more its own unique beast.
