9. Fatal Frame

Paranormal horror game Fatal Frame sets investigative sister, Miku Hinasaki, to Himuro Mansion to find her missing brother, who has mysteriously disappeared after visiting an alleged haunted mansion to look for his folklorist mentor. The Himuro Mansion does exist in Japan and is considered to be the location of one of the greatest mass murders in the country’s history, seven people allegedly found dead from eerie occult rituals. One of the rituals purportedly carried out there was known as the “Strangling Ritual,” in which a young girl would have ropes attached to her limbs, only to have them stretched apart and ripped off of her, in order to seal off evil spirits from the house. The game delves into these rituals and is quite the underrated PS2 classic.
