Oscar-nominated Irish actress Jessie Buckley headlines new horror game

This will be a must-play for Irish fans of scary video games.

When JOE first spoke to Jessie Buckley way back in early 2019 (which, to be fair, feels like over a decade ago at this point) for musical drama Wild Rose, we knew immediately that great things lay in wait for the actress.

Since then, Buckley has appeared in some incredible movies and shows such as Fargo, I'm Thinking Of Ending Things, Chernobyl, and Judy.

She was also just nominated for Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her role in The Lost Daughter (which she lost to Ariana DeBose in West Side Story).

We'll next see the actress in Alex Garland's (Ex Machina, Annihilation) truly creepy-looking new movie Men, but Buckley is also expanding her clear love of horror beyond movies, as she'll headline new scary video game The Devil In Me.

According to Polygon, the plot of The Devil In Me will "follow a five-person crew of documentary filmmakers (including Buckley) who take a tour of an H. H. Holmes Murder Castle replica after receiving an invitation to explore the building and subsequently get stalked by a malevolent force."

The new game comes from Supermassive Games, who have pretty much cornered the market in branching-story horror games that happen to be filled with famous folk.

They kicked off in 2015 with Until Dawn, which included Rami Malek, Hayden Panettiere and Peter Stormare.

After that, they began The Dark Pictures Anthology in 2019 with Man Of Medan (which starred Shawn Ashmore), which was followed in 2020 by Little Hope (fronted by Will Poulter) and then in 2021 with House Of Ashes (starring Ashley Tisdale).

The Devil In Me will be final entry in this first chapter of The Dark Pictures Anthology, with the second season expected to kick off in 2023.
