Review of The Fridge is Red

Is your refrigerator running?Then, you might opt to run faster!

Horror is a fun little genre. Its like drama, but it attempts to open your intestines. And as humans, we, however, are afraid of so many things. Some things we have discovered on our own, for example, we both found that things intended to cause happiness rather than fear. Its great! Life itself is a long horrifying experience!

The Fridge is Red is a little bit of a departure from the usual grotesque slasher horror I''ve ever experienced lately. Its psychological beyond just look out, that cat has a knife! Its downright surreal, nailing what dreams would probably be like if I could dream about something other than noodles. Unfortunately, although it happens to be constantly arresting with its visuals, it comes up short with just about everything it attempts.

It''s one of those passive-aggressive fridges that seem to manifest in visions. While this crimson monolith is omnipresent, it might eat people. Who knows?

The Fridge is Red is about sadness. It''s kind of left to interpretation. At the same time, The Fridge is Red gives you too few pieces of the puzzle and too many.

The most sluggish part of its storytelling is how each game''s six chapters replay them in a way that demonstrates how the events happened. Nevertheless, while its vague about a slew of things, it also brazenly demonstrates you what its symbolizing. I''m not sure why. I''m assuming the whole picture has some sluggish points.

Thats cool, I guess.My fridge is white.

Where The Fridge is Red really excels in its visual appeal. Yes, it''s a low-poly affair overlaid with a VHS filter, and that''s not particularly novel anymore. However, its lighting and purposeful details are pretty well used. Furthermore, it also comes close to being quite surreal in a few cases, which only adds to this fever dream haze youre stuck in.

I never found it to be all that frightening, but there were plenty of moments that felt screenshot worthy. If nothing else, The Fridge is Red creates a nice atmosphere. The lonely gas station feels like an island in the darkness. The hospital feels sterile and impersonal. Then it becomes deliberately confusing.

It is a delight to learn Lost Woods-style puzzles, where you have to follow instructions extra hard to succeed. It''s powerful, but it gets quite tiresome quickly.

Something stinks in the fridge today

The issues in general are bleak. It really leans on the dangers of mundanity. At one point, you literally stand in line for a few minutes, just waiting for the opportunity to take action. I get why they chose to do it, but later, you''re driving long, empty roads in the snow.

The Fridge is Red wants you to fall into a rut. Four of its six chapters guide you through some sort of rough terrain. Its also incredibly vague about what you should be doing. Im a small enough girl that I would have hoped it would give me something. Every path eventually follows the gas station, but only one specific route follows you back. Then nothing.

I was told to go here as an objective, then started driving down the various roads until I reached the end of the chapter. Every time, the scenery is intentionally repetitive, and there isn''t even a radio. I was relieved to reach the chapter and was moved back to it.

I get all my best advice from appliances

In its attempts to tie in the horrors of mundanity, The Fridge is Red makes itself feel more like a shady scene.

The Fridge is Red''s heights are impressive, but most of the time, youre is weakening in its lows. Sometimes, it feels like the fundamental obstacle in the game is just trying to figure out what it wants from you. What order, what direction, and how long will it be conceived. There''s a lot of hope here that wants to be fulfilled, but it must be paired with consideration for the experience.
