Haunting Melissa is the award winning first app of the horror movie series that reinvents how movies are consumed and stories are told.

This is where Melissa’s terrifying journey begins. Delivered piece by piece when you least expect it – and want it most – Haunting Melissa will scare you into discovering the truth. The sequel app Dark Hearts awaits on the App Store once you've completed Haunting Melissa.

Haunting Melissa is exclusively on the App Store and always commercial and advertising free!

In-App Features Include:

Dynamic Story Elements (DSE) is a technology we invented to evolve storytelling to meet the demands of powerful mobile devices. When viewers re-watch a chapter, they may see or hear different things that add new layers to the narrative.

What people are saying:

"Watching the chapters in the dark with headphones on and my face a few inches away from a small screen reminded me of reading ghost stories while sitting alone in my house late at night." –

"Haunting Melissa is a scarily playful, thoroughly modern experiment with the media through which horror stories are delivered." - Co.Create/Fast Company

"A unique app-only video series that can scare you on Halloween...and beyond" - SF Gate


*You’ll want to activate Push Notifications so you won’t miss a thing. Keep the glow of your iPhone or iPad handy, because you’ll never quite know when the haunting is coming.

**Always wear headphones for maximum scares!

***Due to large files that get downloaded into the app please use the auto archiving function in the device settings to manage your storage. Always reach out to with questions and support help, thank you.

Customer Reviews

Support this app!

If you enjoy the horror/suspense genre done in an intelligent manner, you should get this app, along with the sequel. I have a fairly old Ipad 2 and have had zero issues watching it, other than waiting for the next installment (which does add to the suspense). Personally, I especially appreciate the absence of gore and jump scares, in favor of real horror and suspense (similar to old Alfred Hitchcock). Looking forward to the next chapter.

Always remember the original.

You really have to watch where it all started! Watch each chapter more than once! Things change and are not as they seem!

Love it!!

This game is like anything else I have ever "played". I love it. I wish you didn't have to wait an indeterminable amount of time for each chapter though, that is insanely frustrating. But this is still worth the five stars. (!!!!)
