5 Horror Games for iOS that will scare the bejesus out of you

5 Horror Games for iOS that will scare the bejesus out of you
Did you know that, according to a study, watching scary flicks and playing horror games causes your heartbeat to increase as much as an additional 15 beats per minute, spikes your blood pressure, causes your body to drop several degrees and makes your muscles tense?

That's right, and it's our “old brain” at fault. “Say what?”, you ask, and the study obliges – surely, you've had this happen to you at one point or another in your life – you're watching a scary movie, or playing a creepy game and you find yourself reinforcing the idea of it not being real to your own brain. And as much as you'd like it to ease your scare, it doesn't. The study claims that that is because your brain hasn't really caught up with all the new technologies (like movies). You can keep telling yourself it's not real, but your brain will continue to react as if it were. 

If you find yourself wondering why we're telling you this, it's because the below titles will freak you out to a point where you'll be able to judge for yourself the sterility of attempts at convincing your brain it's just a game. Don't trust us? We dare you play these after midnight:

Do this list for Android please, I've only found one decent one called eyes and I'm a huge horror fan. Dead Space doesn't cut it anymore.

I didn't read the article. Don't really have a need for scary games. Just came here to comment on that face... sends CHILLS down my spine. I remember seeing it when watching The Exorcist for the first time. I rewound the tape (yes, I'm old) and paused it just right to get a good look. Grotesque. Quite a way to set the tone for one of the best horror movies of all time.

Seriously? Grow up. The Exorcist is beyond overrated and not scary in the slightest. It's just vulgar and silly; more of a horror-comedy at this point. As for the face, I've seen scarier Halloween masks.

You had to put the photo from The Excorcist didn't you?

Oh, I remember Acedia in Windows Phone. That was quite a thrill to play. The sound only game is quite novel, I hope I can try that on android too.
