More on Dark Corner
Providing some of the most raw, realistic, and unapologetically frightening experiences, Dark Corner is a pioneer at the forefront of virtual reality horror experiences. They immerse you by providing a body for you to inhabit and a fully realized world that is apparent both inside and outside the VR headset.
Dark Corner is the creation of director Guy Shelmerdine and Teal Greyhavens, who describes Dark Corner as “a space where genre lovers know what they’re going to get. It doesn’t have to be horror; it can be a thriller, science fiction, fantasy, or mystery. But it will be a short, thrilling experience with a strong narrative.” Other VR platforms currently offer everything from music videos to film to documentaries. Dark Corner aims to be a more specific platform offering a level of quality that fans will come to expect.
