A YouTube series finale contains a bizarre and unexpected mashup between Amnesia: The Dark Descent and Disney’s Frozen, with the song ‘Let It Go’. We’re scared.
Amnesia: The Dark Descent is undoubtedly one of the most horrifying games that has ever been released. From its utterly terrifying monster to the creaks and groans that stem from a hallucinating mind, it’s clear that Amnesia is one of the staple franchises when it comes to the horror genre.
Recently, Frictional Games developer Thomas Grip – who is responsible for the aforementioned series – found something even scarier: a live action mashup of Amnesia and Disney’s Frozen.
The below video combines elements from the end game of Amnesia: The Dark Descent with adapted lyrics of the Disney hit song ‘Let It Go’ from Frozen, and the results… well, they really speak for themselves.
We’ll let interested fans witness the real horror below:
Thomas Grip stated that he thought he had seen it all before he stumbled onto the above video, and in that we have to agree. Grip’s latest work with SOMA had asked the question what it means to be human, but the above video has us asking an even bigger question: Why? Why do things like this even exist?
As it turns out, Parle Productions has been actively producing and releasing a Disney-oriented Amnesia: The Dark Decent video series since 2014, and the above video happens to be the fifth and final video of the entire series. The view count for the video series as a whole clocks in at just under 75,000 at the time of this post, and we can’t help but feel like the creators deserved more attention for even thinking about such a strange mashup.
Those who may not have played Amnesia are missing out on one of the best horror experiences of this generation, and we highly recommend they step into the shoes of Daniel. The orb from the video carries much significance to the plot of the game, but thankfully, the musical was very light in terms of overall spoilers. Those expecting any singing segments should probably avoid the game entirely.
There’s no doubt that the voices behind Daniel and Alexander in the parody video have some real talent, even if the video itself ends up being a very loose interpretation of the actual events from the game. In any event, we’re glad the video suddenly didn’t jump to the horrible Amnesia monster shambling towards the camera, so they get bonus points for that.
Amnesia: The Dark Descent is available now on PC, Mac, and Linux.
