CARNEVIL - Video Review



Let's drop some coins and visit the twisted arcade realm of CarnEvil (1998, Midway). I reviewed this horror themed light gun shooter way back in 2016 but now we have the video review!

I've also just created a Patreon page for those who really like what I'm doing here. Check it out here. Click the link after the jump to find out more.
