It's one thing to watch a horror movie, but it would be a whole other thing to be brave enough to experience the same kind of horror while wearing a pair of Oculus Rift goggles. As part of a project that terms award-winning scary films into virtual reality, Blair Erickson's Banshee Chapter is now available to experience yourself, first person, if you're up for having nightmares long after.

Banshee Chapter tells the story of an online journalist, a missing friend, mind-altering drugs and lots of screaming faces coming at you. Since the film was made in the first person, it brings a new perspective to the world of film that has the potential to disrupt traditional horror movie storytellign, much like The Blair Witch Project did.
