ESH | Choose Your Own Horror
Many car trips and late nights with my reading lamp were spent reading the popular Choose Your Own Adventure book series as a kid. I loved both the agency it gave me to help effect the outcome of the story and the ability to go back and make new choices on a second run just to see what happens. With horror being my favorite genre therein, I enjoyed one about space vampires quite a bit, the first time I saw Until Dawn I knew it was tailor-made for me to enjoy. Though the branching paths are less drastic than I initially suspected, Until Dawn is the first interactive cinematic experience to really nail it on every front.
