Horror movie trailer narrator voice:
”They were just six young women, looking to have a party on the one night of the year where they were on their own…”
“What they didn’t know, was that they weren’t alone after all…”
Men with a clear case of constipation, possibly also heatstroke from being encased in head to toe airtight rubber suits waddle into view, begging for the sweet release of death from their toxic poo gas costumes that they’re sealed inside of.
“Now these unlucky six girls will find themselves caught between the night…and a trap…in some sort of trappish night-time scenario…like a trap at night. A night trap…”
The full horror of 1990s fashion begins to manifest, as the six women find themselves having to either face a slow death having their vital fluids drained from their body by fetish cosplayers or spend an entire night in power-shoulders and scrunchies.
“Night Trap. It’s a Night Trap. The only thing more horrifying, is the original FMV video content from a SEGA Saturn copy of this nightmare…”
That’s pretty much how I remember Night Trap. Cheesy, weird and very very 1990s, I kind of still have some nostalgic-love for it. Maybe it’s because I’m a fan of horror movies from that era, a genre of filmmaking which slowly began to die out in the age of tape walkmen and PlayStation one consoles in favour of cheaper and more ludicrous fare.
Night Trap might have been the logical end-point for horror movies, an interactive film that sold itself with scantily-clad ladies, quick jump-scares and gameplay that made no sense. Choose-your-own adventure but for nihilists, I’ll still give it points for its ballsiness. It’s making a comeback after 25 years, its original video content fully remastered.
According to developer Screaming Villains, this won’t be the only new addition to the package, as it’ll also ship with a survival mode and a documentary to help pad out the 90 minutes of schlock horror to play through when it launches in the US Spring:
Survivor & Theater are NOT the only new things in Night Trap. More features, platforms, documentary and most importantly, a release date.

There’s also a new trailer out for Night Trap. It’s so deliciously 90s that I want to go see if my original WWF Degeneration X T-Shirt still fits me. It doesn’t and I’ve ripped it. I’m sad now.
