Did you think you’d have to wait until Sunday night to get your zombie fix? Never fear (unless we tell you to do so), because we’re here for you.

Custom Sprites
Movies: Peter from Dawn of the Dead (the original)
Sega: Cyril (House of the Dead)
Capcom: Chris Redfield and the classic Zombie
Data East: Zombie from Night Slashers.
Other Games: Zombie (Zombies Ate My Neighbors)

Mini-logos

All of those new sprites, mini-logos and a new graveyard background were added to the GFX Generator, where you can make your own zombie or non-zombie horror (or non-horror) screens and graphics.

previous parts of the DTHT: part 1, part 2

Here’s today’s batch of newness:

Custom Sprites
Movies: El/Eleven from Stranger Things, Trash from the Return of the Living Dead and Frank Stewart from the WNUF Halloween Special. Yes, I know Stranger Things isn’t a movie, but it’s on that page for now.
Castlevania: Richter Belmont (original outfit)
Vanillaware: Sorceress (resprited and MUCH better)
Other Games: Julie (Zombies Ate My Neighbors) in her select screen pose
Marvel: Ghost Rider in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 stance

Mini-logos
– Movies: the Return of the Living Dead, Frank Stewart
– Television: Stranger Things
– Vanillaware (new!): Vanillaware and Dragon’s Crown logo

All of the new sprites and mini-logos were added to the new GFX Generator, which you can use to make pics like the one near the top of this post. I also added a “horror” character list so you can easily find horror characters to build your own nightmares.

The madness continues tomorrow with even more sprites!

All fighting size custom sprites and mini-logos have been added to the GFX Generators so you can use them to make your own spooky fake screenshots and pixel graphics!

Don’t forget that I still have that Horror legend vs. screen print in the ScrollBoss Shop for $6 + S&H!


BTW: The Chucky sprite and his portrait in that print come from the same linework, but at different sizes.

I was a bit cryptic in Friday’s update on whether the theme was over. Well, I had one more sprite to make. Ladies, gentlemen and screwheads, meet Ash Williams.


Be sure to check out VGJunk’s Halloween Spooktacular reviews, including today’s review of Capcom’s Vampire Savior! You’ll find a lot of far more obscure games lurking in his Halloween tag, so roll through it to find new picks for your own Halloween game list.

JustinGameDesign made a fun group of 8-bit sprites for the spooky season, with characters from a wide array of sources. He even put them into a nice deviantART gallery so you can see them all in the same spot!


NOW I’m done with the Halloween updates. Happy Halloween!

The DangerTerrorHorrorThon continues with a crew of heroes, but will they be enough to hold off the threats on the way?

Custom Sprites:
Castlevania: Simon Belmont (new CV1 NES stance from last year’s Trevor sprite & improved taunt), Grant Danasty
