Top Horror Movie Inspired Slot Machines

Like most businesses, casinos are always looking for ways to attract a new group of gamblers. One way in which they can do this is with themed slot machine games or mobile pokies. Easy to design and a lot of fun to play, slot machines can be designed around popular themes. As a result, fans of this specific genre are drawn to try out slot machine gaming. For instance, many slot machines have been inspired by horror movies.

A Nightmare On Elm Street Slot Machine

A Nightmare on Elm Street

Inspired by the classic horror flick, this slot machine game is five reels with 30 pay lines. The game is complete with an eerie soundtrack further adding to the haunting ambiance of the game. Complete with a Freddy Krueger symbol on the reels, getting him to appear on all five reels will result in a payout of 10,000x your bet. This translates to a maximum jackpot of £100,000. Expect to find other characters featured including Nancy Holbrook, Quentin Smith and Jesse Braun.

Psycho Slot Machine


Horror inspired slots wouldn’t be complete without the all time classic, Psycho. Alfred Hitchcock’s movie is a chilling backdrop for this slot machine game. The visual aspect of this slot is quite frightening and sets the tone for the game. Appealing to horror film fans, the game includes a knife icon symbol with life like animations. The game offers a total of 25 pay lines and includes a bonus round.

Aliens Slot Machine


While this movie is still debated as to whether it fits the science fiction or horror genre, fans don’t seem to care as Aliens packs quite a thrill for anyone who plays it. Players can wagers on a maximum of 15 pay lines. The music complements the game quite effectively as players shoot their way through creepy extra-terrestrial attacks as they march onward to the Queen Hive.

These three horror inspired slot machines are excellent choices if you’re a fan on this particular movie genre or perhaps simply an avid slot machine junkie!

I've been a fan of horror and slasher movies for as long as I can remember. I consider the original Halloween to be the best horror movie of all time and my guilty pleasure horror flick would be The Exorcist III. You can find me on Twitter at @406Northlane or TikTok @406Northlane where I'm sure I'll offend you at least once a day.
