In support of Mountain Dew's latest limited-run flavor, "Pitch Black" -- which mixes the taste of black grape into the MD formula -- Tribal DDB/Dallas has launched a microsite in the form of an online haunted house. The beverage, which will be available through Halloween, is being promoted with a horror-themed cinema trailer, and the site brings the same idea to the web. Armed with nothing but a virtual flashlight -- which only allows you to see part of the digital environment at any given time -- users are invited inside to search for such promotional staples as branded wallpaper and a Flash-based game called "Terror in the Woods" -- a first-person number seemingly inspired by The Blair Witch Project.
