Hey, that’s not Shelly from Accounting!
Ever wonder what happens at your office late at night? Chances are the disgruntled cleaning staff is rummaging through your desk but generally, nothing too scary is going on.

If burning the midnight oil behind a computer screen horrifying enough, you soon find out you’re not alone.
The Office 360 VR Horror Experience Review
“The Office” by Inside360
Searching for a virtual simulation that makes your own office environment seem more appealing? Look no further. The Office 360° VR is a virtual reality horror film created by Inside360. The production uses spatial audio and 3D effects to deliver a more haunting and immersive feel. You’ll sit and prepare yourself for the next jump scare but it’s no worse than locking eyes with your boss in your own office.
I’m Gonna’ Need You to Come in on Saturday, Yeah…
In The Office 360 VR Horror Experience, you begin seated at your workstation. It looks like a pretty decent office. Your desk is relatively clear of knick-knacks, collectible figures or photos of loved ones suggesting your work is your only true passion. Forgive me if I add some of my own backstories to enrich this three minute long 360° video.
As you work to try to earn overtime pay, complete your TPS cover sheets or simply avoid the screaming tornado that is your home life, you realize something is wrong. A call comes in when the only calls you normally get are from Debra in Marketing (she’s still a little clingy after you hooked up at the office Christmas Party).
Odd images dance across your computer screen as the room seems to take on a life of its own. It becomes clear you’re not alone as you’re treated to a series of jump scares in 360°. Each surprise is more gruesome than the last until you’re left shrieking like the scared little girl you are.
Frightfully Fun Workplace or Broken Corporate Ladder?
When you think of the perfect setting for a 360 Horror Experience forget abandoned farmhouses or mysterious laboratories because an office is probably far scarier. The Inside360 team did a decent job showcasing a range of visual and practical effects to produce a fun 360° film.
Did this VR horror video freak me out? See the video for my reaction. You can try it yourself on Gear VR, Oculus or your cardboard headset.
So, about that raise…
