Ten Years of VNs Now Special Feature: Fifty EVNs JP Recommends (50-30)
50. Grotesque Beauty (Digital Bento)
Grotesque Beauty is something I haven’t seen from horror in a while: an outright creature feature. Shelved in the name of more person or situation driven horror, there is still a soft spot in my withered shell of a heart for the monster lurking just off screen or under the bed. After a mild bit of setup, that is exactly what we get and our protagonists simply are not prepared to take on the terror unleashed inside of their home. It doesn’t have an especially deep narrative, but it does serve up a thrill ride a lot of horror can learn from.
