With the upcoming release of the Blair Witch video game, we thought it was time to take a look at other relatively untapped horror movie franchises ripe for a video game adaptation. Let’s sink our fangs in.
The beauty of IT – both the movies and the original Stephen King novel – is that it lends itself to a video game that could essentially be whatever you wanted it to be.

Lepers, werewolves, and a murderous statue of Paul Bunyan are only the beginning. Just as long as the final boss isn’t a giant spider.
