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.

I put The Lurking Horror on the same level as Stationfall, although, preferring science-fiction to horror, purely as a matter of personal taste, I found this slightly less enthralling. If you are into horror, and into adventures, get into The Lurking Horror.

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.
