"The Corpse Party series has been around for quite some time as the very first game was released back in 1996 for the PC. It wasn’t until years later when a PSP remake was released that the horror title made its appearance in the West. With multiple games developed for the series, it was only a matter of time until some form of anime adaptation was created and now Sentai Filmworks has brought that adaptation to North America. Consisting of four OVAs meant to take place during the first game, has Corpse Party: Tortured Souls transitioned into a worthwhile horror anime?"
