Looking for Horror themed games that are not:

- Cthulu
- Zombies
- Jack the Ripper
- Dracula (does not exempt vampires)
- Space Aliens

I'm pretty sure I've gone through enough of the lists, forum threads and reviews to have seen the majority of considered 'essentials'. I'm just looking for anything that might've gone under the radar or I missed in the peripheral. Accessibility for two players is a big bonus.

Thanks in advance

Fearsome Floors is my favorite horror game - basically hide-and-seek with a monster.

Some of these might have zombies but they are not zombie-themed games as such.

Dungeons & Dragons: Castle Ravenloft Board Game

It's not out yet, but I think Sub Terra might fit the bill!

Cave explorers, trying to find the way out before the lights go out: meanwhile, some unnamed horros is hunting them

The Bloody Inn
- You run an inn where you rob, bribe, murder, and bury your guests.
- Execellent hand management card game!


Ultimate Werewolf: Inquisition
- A terrible thing is happening in a local village: Werewolves are responsible for the deaths of many villagers. Unable to determine who amongst themselves are werewolves, they've called in a group of master inquisitors to help sort out this mess before it's too late. That's where you and your team come in. No stranger to werewolf infestations, you know that the best thing to do is to start lynching suspects.
- It's Werewolf with no moderator and no player elimination!


Dungeon Petz
- You're the leader of an imp family that breeds and sells adorable, yet gruesome, monsters.
- Fairly deep euro game of worker placement (with a unique "bidding" twist) and hand management.


Blood Bound
- We're in one of two rival vampire clans trying to identify and capture the Elder of the opposing team.
- One of the most involved and strategic social deduction games I've ever played. Flew under the radar because of the cheesey artwork, but I hear they've redone it with much better art now.


Room 25
- Trapped in a prison in which each room has four doors but apparently no exit, the players must try to find Room 25, the supposed exit to this nightmare. But some amongst them might be guardians of the prison, waiting for the right moment to strike. (Basically, The Cube - the board game)
- A cooperative (with possible traitor) game with sliding rooms (many of which are deadly), action programming, and lots of tension!


Shadow Hunters
- set in a devil-filled forest in which three groups of characters—the Shadows, creatures of the night; the Hunters, humans who try to destroy supernatural creatures; and the Neutrals, civilians caught in the middle of this ancient battle—struggle against each other to survive.
- One of the first social deduction games, it shows its age some yet still remains a favorite in my gaming group.
