Horror games are a special type of gaming experience. They focus on scaring you just as much on plot and gameplay.
Alone in the Dark
Despite being a successor to the early 90s horror series Alone in the Dark, the new Alone in the Dark game is only partially related to those old games.
Call of Cthulhu - Dark Corners

Cold Fear Horror Survival Game
If you like an action adventure shooting that is full of suspense, give Cold Fear a try. Be warned, this is rated mature, and can get quite scary!

Dead Rising - XBox 360

Dead Rising 2 - XBOX 360

Prey - Native American Combat
Prey is a horror-survival game with a twist - you're a native american who begins by wanting to get off his reservation with his Cherokee girlfriend. Space aliens help you respect your roots.
Based on a classic comic book anti-hero, The Punisher is a decidedly mature title in which a vigilante takes on most of New York City. Be prepared for lots of torture and swearing.

Vampires and games about them have been done before. First-person shooters have been done before. However, I would say that Vampire Rain - a first person shooter about fighting vampires - is a reasonably innovative combination of these elements.
