The Survival Horror Classic ‘Phantasmagoria’ Is Getting A Live-Action Film Adaptation!

Phantasmagoria

In news that I’m just a wee bit late finding, the classic point-and-click psychological horror game “Phantasmagoria” is getting a low budget live-action film adaptation, courtesy of indie film studio Black Castle Productions. Released in 1995, the game was one of the first to feature a live actor (Victoria Morsell, who plays Adrienne Delaney) as the player’s avatar. Its gore, violence, and a surprisingly explicit rape scene also made it insanely controversial upon its release.

I’m a little ashamed to admit I’ve never actually played “Phantasmagoria”, probably because seven year-old me was too busy sneaking in late-night viewings of Candyman and A Nightmare On Elm Street when the parental figures weren’t looking, but I’ve been told by our very own Jonny B — who pointed this news out to me — that its sequel is the best.

“Phantasmagoria” is being co-written and produced by Sabrina Cooper, with Steven Shea serving as director. It will also star Miriam Margolyes (Harry Potter, Legend of the Guardians) as Harriet. We have no word yet on when the film will release, and through what channels, but it sounds like production is still very early on.

    Phantasmagoria is not a survival horror game. Played them both. 1 had great gore and 2 had a better story.

    i played both as well i think the first one had like 6 or 7 discs, and a puzzle flesh had 4 disc… they sucked bad but were actually good…

  • REmake

    There’s no way to call Phantasmagoria 2 ” the best” without being horribly sarcastic. That is the worst point and click game I’ve ever played through. The first Phantasmagoria game was actually fun, though.
