Put together by Empire Games Wisconsin, which primarily makes video games, this is the first of a two-volume set of Halloween-themed scary sound effects. What sets these two volumes apart from the usual Halloween sound effects album is the care in which they're assembled, arranged so that the eerie howls, creepy footsteps, creaky doors and floors, and ghostly, distorted screams and yells all flow into each other in a kind of story arc, one that reaches nearly an hour in length. These are perfect for a Halloween porch, basement, or backyard Halloween party, and for those willing to pay attention, there's an onward thread to the madness, making it a bit like listening to a video game run or a scary movie play from down the hall.
