Creepy things that remind you of Blood

. "House" (1986) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6SAnzorAGPA

. "The Woman in Black" (1989) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k1hun4jaY5g

. "Dark Seed" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SRCDz5tQ3Z8

. "The Hands Resist Him" http://www.surfingtheapocalypse.com/hau ... nting.html

This is not say they're "exactly" like Blood, but take Dark Seed for example, even the palette bears some resemblance 8)

Thanks for sharing the links, I wasn't aware of these before. Darkseed looks interesting.

Re topic: I shall answer when I recall more details, but there were definitely places, games, movies, etc. that reminded me of Blood worth mentioning.

IIRC there's a robed cultist who gets impaled by a pitchfork in The Devil's Rain. That made me smile and nod knowingly. :)

Edit: Yep. You can see it very briefly in this trailer, at 1:31.

Not really creepy, but I remember a scene from the film Dead Poets Society features robed students running in moonlight. It makes me think of cultists every time.

The Devil's Rain is certainly a classic.

It has horror, melting cultists, and William Shatner chewing up the scenery with Ernest Borgnine and Eddie Albert! A movie can't get any more horrific and terrific then this!

I also always think of Blood when I see the robed midgets in Phantasm. I wonder if Tchernobog ever actually hired any midgets...

What if that was the case? And he later found out that the midgets are not intimidating enough and he decided to put them through a hydraulic compressor to make them taller, thus giving us the end result that is wall aligned cultists?

One movie that I always personally associated with [Blood] was [Tales From The Darkside(1990)]

It has a demonic Gargoyle, much like Blood. The film also has eerie dark environments and a creepy soundtrack.
There is a song in the Tales From The Darkside 1990 Soundtrack called [The Way OF All Flesh] preformed by Jim Manzie - the same name as the first Episode of Blood - "THE WAY OF ALL FLESH".

Tales From The Darkside was also filmed on location of Bronxville New York - very close to where the lead programmer of Blood was from, Yorktown New York - Both are Situated in Westchester County NY.

also when I first saw 'the ugliest dog in the world' it reminded me of the Hellhound.

Just recently I got around re-playing Rise of the Triad, which thing I hadn't done in quite enough years, and I tell you right away that thing reeks of Blood like nothing else does.

I could go on forever about this, but there are massive similarities in perhaps every respect but the audio.

The palette itself is very much alike, favoring ochre's, reds and stone grays (also yellows, as in pillars of fire). The texture and overall look standing out as period and somewhat gothic in nature. The arsenal itself pyrotechnia-orientied intertwined with magical elements. The gore, deliciously well designed and over the top (even more so with the extra gore cheat on). There's even enemies on their knees begging for mercy you may choose whether or not to dispatch (and you better do). It does also feature it's own and very distinctive version of the cultist (or should I say the other way around). The multiplayer mode's most certainly fun, far and beyond anything the single player campaign has to offer, and let's not forget that Blood itself was very much praised for the same back in the day.

Ultimately, though, I believed the game failed because of the dated looks of the architecture (not so much the functionality thereof) and the mundanity and flatness of it's foes, with Blood later on taking everything it did well and perfecting it.
