Top 10 GALAXY S4 and Note 8.0 apps for horror fans

It's made by Japanese horror game studio Ateam Inc and is full of the sort of ghostly goings on that 'J-Horror' moviemakers are well known for. At its diseased heart, Murder Room is a typical 'room escape' game – but this one comes complete with added scare factor.

Bloody Mary Ghost Adventure HD

£1.31 – buy it here

We all know the folklore: if you say "Bloody Mary" several times into a mirror, the spirit of a young woman is said to appear, and carnage can often ensue. Personally, we think this only happens to people who have had too many Bloody Marys, but this game takes that idea and adds a nice bit of augmented reality.

Instead of a mirror, you hold your handset up to your surrounding area, use your GALAXY Note 8.0 camera technology and see if Bloody Mary is to be found. It's all good scary fun, even if the ending of the game doesn't quite live up to its jump-ridden beginning.

School's out forever in this black-and-white shocker

The Abandoned School

Free – get it here

What's black and white and red all over? Believe it or not, that's not the start of an awful joke, but actually a decent description of The Abandoned School.

Melding black-and-white imagery that any cinematographer would be proud of with all sorts of ghostly gameplay, The Abandoned School is a brilliant example of how to bring point-and-click puzzlers kicking and screaming (mostly screaming) into the 21st century.

Every horror movie ever, in one place

Best Horror Movies Database

£1.30 – buy it here

If you are the sort of person who thinks horror begins and ends with The Exorcist, then the Best Horror Movie Database will be something of an eye-opener for you. Packed with thousands of horror movies and links to where you can find them online, this is a must-have app for anyone who wants to dip their severed toes into the genre, or those who already class themselves as aficionados.

We'll admit that this does seem to be the only horror movie database available for Android, so the name of this app is a little misleading but, hey, we suppose that does make it the best of the one available, and it certainly delivers everything it promises.

Urban Legends is one legendary app

Urban Legends

Free – get it here

We'll admit it – when we mentioned Bloody Mary earlier, we may have looked her up with this creepy compendium of urban legends. She joins hundreds of other 'legends' to make up this collection.

Some of them are unbelievably freaky – the church of carnage is one story that will stay with us for a long time – and some of them are, well, a little light on terror. Sorry, but we are never going to get scared about ice cream.

All of the urban legends are presented as mini stories, so you'll certainly get a decent amount of use from this simple but suspenseful app.
