Inhale, Sepulchre and Exhale make up The Charnel House Trilogy [official site]. It’s a point and click project devised by developers Owl Cave which follows two passengers as they take a train journey to a remote location.
Sepulchre was initially released a couple of years back and I was fond of it as a standalone piece. It’s a vignette which taps into older horror story tropes – the ones which involve creepiness and that very Victorian morbid fascination with the tomb – rather than body horror or torture porn. Now bookended and recontextualised by Inhale and Exhale I’m struggling to find that former fondness.
