Downloads of the week: A spooky Halloween special

Halloween is nearly upon us, so strap in, buckle up, and get ready for some downloads that are guaranteed to give you a spine-tingling chill this weekend. Those of a nervous disposition should look away now…..

Movie

The Exorcist

The exorcist

There are few more classic horror films than The Exorcist, making it the perfect movie to get you in the mood for Halloween.

Admittedly, it may not be as scary as back in the day – you may even find some of the 1973 special-effects humorous – but the film still has a deeply chilling edge that will give you some frights (especially if you haven’t seen it before).

The film follows the story of a young girl named Regan MacNeil, who starts acting slightly odd one day, and by odd we mean levitating and talking in tongues.

Regan’s mother tries to find medical help but to no avail, until a local priest hits upon the idea that the girl has been possessed by the devil. To put it mildly, things start to go gradually downhill from there.

Apparently, when the film was released in the USA, members of the audience were fainting in the aisles.

See how you fare by streaming from Amazon Instant Video.

Song

Thriller by Michael Jackson

Michael Jackson Thriller

It’s close to midnight, and something evil’s lurking in the dark…..

To be honest, nobody really needs an excuse to listen to this masterpiece from the King of Pop. But as it’s Halloween, there’s really no better song to stick on to get you in the mood.

So whether you’re heading out to a party, having a party at yours, or simply entertaining the kids, download and get it spinning.

Download from iTunes or Google Play Store.

Game

Limbo

Limbo

Limbo is one of those games that you’ll be thanking us for bringing into your life. It has won over 90 awards, and has an impressive 4-and-a-half star rating on iTunes and a 5-star rating on Google Play Store (despite being around for a number of years now).

In the game, you play as a mysterious young boy who wakes up in a dark forest located on the “edge of hell”. The boy’s sister has disappeared and everything and everyone is trying to attack or trap him.

Your job is to safely navigate the boy through a series of fiendish puzzles. As you go further through the eerily beautiful world of the game, puzzles get harder, and things get weirder.

The artwork has drawn particular praise, as the black and white design creates a strangely spooky atmosphere that’s stunningly beautiful at the same time. You really must try this one out for yourself – especially as it’s Halloween.

Download from iTunes or Google Play Store.

App

The Walking Dead – No Man’s Land

The walking dead

This recently released, official app is perfect for all of those diehard Walking Dead fans to get into the Halloween state-of-mind.

Not only do you have to kill legions of zombies, you also have to make the right decisions to save your character. Featuring the voice of Norman Reedus (Daryl in The Walking Dead), the gameplay and story are amazing.

Download from the App Store or Google Play Store.
