Resident Evil 7 speedrun is a knife-only Madhouse sprint

Resident Evil 7 is a very scary videogame set in a creepy old mansion. Typically, it takes players around 10-15 hours to finish the game, but in real life you'd probably not want to linger around a house full of deranged murderers for that long. No, around three hours seems more reasonable, which is what speedrunner Quizzle has done.

He's playing on the Madhouse difficulty as well, which lacks checkpoints and regenerating health. The final run time is 3:26, with eight restarts and, uh, all Mr Everywheres destroyed. 

Check out the run below. I won't be attempting this anytime soon because I found this game utterly punishing. In a good way, I guess.
