'The 7th Guest'
"The 7th Guest" is a horror-based puzzle game in which players go through a haunted mansion in order to find out what happened on a dark and stormy night. It features ghoulish traps, scenes of terror, and a pretty spooky story about an evil toymaker who kills kids with his creations. Okay, so bits and pieces of that story vaguely resemble bits and pieces of a whole lot of other movies, but it is well-worn because it works and is incredibly popular. The number of potential sequels is astounding (just look at "Saw"). The haunted house story is its own sub-genre of film and this perfectly fits the mold.
