Very much in the style of a modern horror movie, this is an Infocom shocker from Dave Lebling, whose graphic text makes graphics redundant. It will leave you more than once, feeling slightly queasy and decidedly uneasy.
[Budget re-release] This was the only genuine Infocom adventure that was serious horror, and it sure made the hairs on the back of my neck stand up.
The size of the game and the amount of puzzles there are to solve, together with the very professional implementation of Lurking Horror make it yet another masterpiece from Infocom. Playing it alone in the darkened room at the dead of night is not recommended for the weak of heart.
Amiga Format (Nov, 1992)
This is an excellent, atmospheric game that will have you looking over your shoulder. There's an weird storyline and a comic-book feel.
