Just wondering, as the title says. Thinking about playing this as our Halloween night game. The graphics suggest "creepy", but not sure, given the scenario summary in the back of the box.

Not a bad choice, I would say.

I think it will work, if not, you're in for a great time anyway.

Yes. That were the exact words of my GF after playing it last night, since she only knew the time mechanics and saw the futuristic look of the box and components and had no clue about the theme of the first scenario, and I concur.

How creepy / scary / horror is this game? I know everyone has their own standard for how much is 'too much' for them. My wife doesn't want to watch the movie "One flew over the cuckoo's nest" because she finds Asylums and having doctors that are evil very creepy. She has epilypsy, so it relates a bit too much to her with how medical community used to treat people with seizures.
So how 'spooky' is this game?
We love creature movies, but never watch movies like the Grudge, Ring, or slasher flicks. Zombie movies, Predator, Alien, Terminator are all good to go.
What do you think?

Hmm, different standards indeed. I don't think there's anything more "spooky" in here than you'd find in an episode of Scooby Doo, though some of the events and themes could be labelled adult. But, if your wife balks at that film, I think, sadly, she might want to give this one a miss.

Well, I disagree with that. Scooby doo has a comic, kids tone. This scenario is a mature experience. Based on what you said, I think this scenario will be too much for her.
