The other night, my GF was playing TZ and mentioned, "Its scary" The voices and the music.
"Dont touch the door!, Dont touch the door!"

I wouldnt go as far as to say that i think TZ is "scary", but i can see how the music comes off eerie or "frightening" i guess.

What are some titles that strike the fear in people, or have that eerie feel to them?

I was thinking BSD, however i've never played one.

There's the usual 'horror' themed pins (Scared Stiff, MB, etc).... One that most don't consider scary, but my wife has said 'no way' is LOTR - both her and my daughter think it's too 'creepy'. I guess they just don't like Gollum.

#3 9 years ago

Never played one, but I'm sure Freddy tries to be scary.

#4 9 years ago

BSD is the scariest pin i know of but it's also funny at times. My son left the room crying when i drove the stake through dracula's heart the other day.

#5 9 years ago

the sagging pair kind like the woman in room 34 on the Shining are pretty scary...

OH, scary TITLES.. I read that wrong.

#6 9 years ago

Any clown themed pinballs?

#7 9 years ago

Gorgar is such a scary lookin beast I don't really care to ever own one.

#8 9 years ago

Gorgar... The first talking machine right? I dont care to own one either.

My kids are always talking about the "Creepy Santa" on TFTC's backglass.

MM and BBB.

Anything that costs 10k + is scary to me

He is pretty creepy looking. I believe that was the first episode ever. My niece always complains about the sexy lady without a face over the inserts.

Made some progress on a project Gorgar late one evening. When I fired it up, that heartbeat gave me the chills.

#14 9 years ago

BSD for sure, it has alot of scary sounds. Also the Devil's Dare artwork is pure evil

Awww come on guys!!! Gorgar is a classic with excellent playfield art for it's time. It's one of the first pins I remember playing, maybe that's why I have a soft spot for it. If I had a little more room it would be in my collection for sure. BTW horror themed pins rule!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Just toss him an "Ice-Cold Beer" to help wash away the tears. Then, come to the front to collect your "Parent of the Year" award...

Please don't tell me you're one of those "Man Card" carriers WQ...
I suppose that means 'WOZ' isn't high on your "To-Be-Played" lists either.

#30 9 years ago

Would Hardbody count as scary???

nah man, WOZ is high on the "to play list". Funny you ask though, I DO have my "man card" although it has been suspended a couple of times

The modern Stern knocker scares the crap outta me whenever it goes off. It's that high pitched squeaking gets right in your ear.

In my defense, that was the first time i accomplished that and didn't know that was going to happen. I never pay any attention to the dmd when i'm playing, either.

Not my proudest parenting moment, however.

On the two FHs i have had, i installed a red bulb in rudy's mouth that tapped into the jaw motor, so the inside of the mouth glowed red when he spoke , snored, etc. That was freaky. Never one for moderation, i did the same with the eyes. That proved to be too much. I had to remove it from the eyes.
