An amazing atmosphere, sounds and great enemies. It gives you the perfect feeling that your all alone, but your not at the same time.

Probably the scariest mod I've ever played.

Giving this a try on Halloween night back in 2007, I was gripped with fear as the tension began to build the further I progressed.

It never lit up one bit as I fought frightening monsters in claustrophobic and atmospheric, derelict levels thriving with detail and the unknown. And to this day, the woodland level has to be one of the most horrifying gaming experiences I have ever had. By the end, I remember not getting much sleep that night, and my dreams were distorted and dark.

I know now, looking back at it, that many of the scares were cheap screamers, but no other mod or game has ever managed to pull off the same scares I went through that night. Give this a try, because by the end, even the most skeptical Atheist will be Afraid of Monsters. :)

The best mod I have EVER played so far... different routes, different endings, awesome puzzles, startling zombies and a theme that would make my heart beat louder and faster! 10/10 is well-deserved ^_^


The best mod I've ever played!

Keep up the great work with other mods!

Thumbs UP! :D


A truly scary mod for Half Life. The zombie models are simple, but are worked enough to scare anybody a little. Most of the places are dark, and you have a flashlight that works with a battery that could end; this sums points for a horror mod. The maps are spectacular, with what I think are own made textures and well accompanied with scary and good fitting music. The main thing I would like to remark is the great plot: one with a nice psycological ambience. When you get into it, can be really scary for the player but allows for a great experience. I really liked the idea of 4 different endings, and none of them are crappier in even one aspect. This is, in conclusion, an excellent mod, and must be played by every horror fan and HL fan.

Simple. Horror. Perfection.

A vast improvement from the original Afraid of Monsters. Among the plethora of added content are multiple paths, different endings, new monsters, and more. All the old environments have been given a graphical overhaul along with some much welcomed new ones. Even if you've played the original to death, like I did, this is still worth a play and a half. Rumpel still finds ways to instill raw horror like no other in the industry, both mainstream and indie.


Great job. It was possibly the scariest game I'v played since Fatal Frame. I made it through Knott's Scary Farm with barely uttering a peep and i could barely get through 20 mins of this game without a girly scream. Thank you for creating such a scary game.

way scary- a little too much for me. Also, make sure you play in a well lit room- for if you don't, you'll either be too scared to play or get motion sickness!


My favorite HL1 mod of all time. Why? CAUSE IT HAS EVERYTHING THAT A HALF LIFE 1 MOD SHOULD HAVE! Scary as hell atmosphere, fantastic level design, clear directions, never tiring, never old, and overall AOM: Director's Cut is just a gem. It's the perfect Halloween mod. Though Cry of Fear is much scarier in my opinion, this one is much funner. 10/10!!! Rumpel you really know to scare the **** out of me even when I'm expecting the scares!

I love it, the monsters are actually scary. They weren't like any other, it's one of the best survival horrors I've played because it's challenging and fun. There was a bit too much darkness but that's what keeps it scary. I recommend this to anyone that loves horror games.
