and decided since his great Aunt Hilda's cabin was being neglected, he
would put it to use. Jack decided a good idea would be to invite some of
his closest friends over for a night of singing and telling ghost stories
around a campfire. Jack mailed out invitations to Rhonda, Michael and Matilda
and chose Friday the 13th to set the mood for a spooky night around a campfire
at his great Aunt Hilda’s cabin. Jack didn't know the whole story about his
great Aunt Hilda.
Legend has it that Hilda was an evil Witch that used
to live in Salem, Massachusetts and thought she could escape the witch hunters
by living deep in the woods in an isolated area in a small cabin. The Witch
hunter's weren't about to let Jack's great Aunt Hilda, the most evil Witch get
away. The Witch hunter's were hot on Hilda's trail and only took about a week
to catch up with Hilda because an old farmer who lived nearby Hilda's cabin
noticed some strange things going on in the cabin.
When the Witch hunter's arrived at the old farmers
home the Witch hunter's asked the old farmer if he noticed any strange things
in the area and he replied "Yes, I did notice an old woman with some old
book reading from it and when I stopped by her cabin to check on her she
started reading some strange words from that book and telling me if I didn't
leave, she would cast a spell on me, so I left. That's all the Witch hunter's
needed to burn this Witch at the stake.
The old farmer was happy to lead the witch hunter's
to the Witch's cabin and watch her burn at the stake. The Witch hunter's
decided that when they got the Witch they would cut her head off and bury it
underneath the cabin's floor with the book. The Witch hunter's torches were
blazing and chanting "burn the Witch, burn the Witch." The Witch
hunter's surrounded the cabin and about five of the toughest men rushed inside
the cabin and grabbed Hilda by the arms and legs thrusting her out the door of
the cabin to the wood chopping block. One of the Witch hunter's said
"Do you have anything you want to say before I cut your head off and burn
your body at the stake." Hilda replied "I will be back someday to
seek vengeance on your ancestors." The Witch hunter raised the axe and off
rolled Hilda's head off the chopping block. Then the Witch hunter's burned her
body at the stake and some of the other Witch hunter's took her head back to
the cabin and retrieved the book of the dead and buried them both. Jack had no
idea the book and his great Aunt Hilda's head were buried beneath the floor of
This night of singing and storytelling would be
a night they all would remember if they all made it out alive.
the towns people know he did. When Johnny was a little boy, he would hang out
with his father in their morgue which had been in the family for many
generations. Johnny's father never let little Johnny in on the family's dirty
little secret. Johnny's father felt that now was as good of a time as any to
let Johnny in on the family’s dark past since he had reached the age where his
father told him.
father said sternly, “I've got something to tell you that has been a secret to
only our family. Whatever I tell you
doesn't leave this room, or there will be grave consequences. The only way that
this can be official is by a contract signed with your blood and sealed in the
family crypt. Then I will show you.” Johnny adored his father and was proud to
be a part of a family that was full of mystery, but he was always curious about
why there was a secret past. Johnny sliced his finger with the Witch finder
General's knife. The knife was used on some of the witches when the Witch
finder General would go on his hunts. In 17th century Europe, witchcraft was at
its height. Johnny signed the agreement.
"Now that this is taken care of,” said his
father, “Let's head on down to the family crypt."
Johnny's Father placed the signed agreement in an
iron safe and locked the door.
"Ok, Johnny, have a seat next to Bartholomew.”
"Who is Bartholomew?” Johnny asked.
"Well, let me tell you all about him. He’s an
ancestor of our family that dates back to the 17th century. He was known as the
Witch finder General during the reign of witches in central Europe. He was a
good man that hated witches. It became an obsession of his until he met up with
a witch named Sarah who he tortured, hung, and burned at the stake. The very
knife that you cut your finger with is the same knife your ancestor Bartholomew
used to cut witches to see what color their blood was. This story I'm about to
tell you is a love story turned deadly.
Sarah Beth always dreamed of having a doll of her own. She thought it was a dream that would never come true. “I've been living in this orphanage since I was a baby and no one has ever given me a doll. No one has hugged me to let me know I was loved. If only I had a doll of my own, I would love her and give her all the hugs and kisses I never got. I guess I'll just curl up in bed with my blanket and cry my eyes out like I always have for the past ten years. Maybe someday some nice person will bring a doll to the orphanage. That will be the greatest day of my life," said Sarah Beth to herself.
On a cold and dreary October afternoon, that day finally came. A little old lady brought fresh flowers to the orphanage every day. The old lady got tired of seeing Sarah Beth being teased by the other kids at the orphanage. The little old lady approached Sarah Beth with some good news. The old lady said, "You know, Sarah Beth, there comes a point in your life when you just get tired of all the teasing and humiliation. I'll tell you what? I'll get you your very own special doll that no one in this orphanage has. Would you like that Sarah Beth?"
"Yes! I would like that very much! More than anything in the whole world," said Sarah Beth with wide eyes.
"Well, tomorrow morning I'll bring you my special doll my grandmother passed down to me when I was a little girl,” said the old lady.
Sarah Beth was so happy. She ran back to her room for the night to dream about that special doll. Sarah Beth didn't get much sleep because her mind was on the doll all night long.
Morning came and just as the old lady promised, Sarah Beth got her doll. The old lady told Sarah Beth, "The doll I am giving you is no ordinary doll. She has special powers. You must be careful what you wish for."
The old lady turned around quickly. Headed out the front door of the orphanage before Sarah Beth had a chance to ask her why she had to be careful of what she wished for.
Sarah said to herself, "Oh well, I've finally got a doll that I can call my own.”
Sarah Beth went skipping through the halls of the orphanage letting everyone that came in her path know that she finally got a doll of her own. As Sarah Beth was about to approach the door to her bedroom a girl named Carly that lived in the room next to hers came up to Sarah Beth and asked curiously, "Sarah Beth what do you have there?"
Sarah Beth replied, "It's my doll and no one can have her."
Carly said, "Let me hold her. I'll give her right back."
Sarah Beth handed the doll to Carly and said, "You can hold her for a minute, but you have to give her back, ok?" "Don't worry, you can have her back. She's an ugly doll anyway," said Carly.
However, Carly had no intentions in giving the doll back to Sarah Beth. Carly just wanted to see her cry over the doll. Carly held the doll above Sarah Beth's head. Sarah Beth began to sob. Sarah Beth jumped up to try to grab the doll out of Carly's hand, but it was no use.
Sarah Beth warned Carly, "The old lady said the doll has special powers. All I have to do is wish for something and the doll will make it happen."
Carly started laughing hysterically at Sarah Beth and said, "That old lady is stupid. There is no doll that has special powers."
Sarah Beth cried and pleaded with Carly not to throw her doll in the trash. Carly held the doll over the trash can. Sarah Beth became angry, she wanted her dead. But Sarah Beth had never hurt anything in her whole life.
Just as Carly was about to throw the doll in the trash, Sarah Beth screamed, "I wish the doll would bite you!"
Just as Sarah Beth wished, the doll bit into Carly's arm, to the bone. Carly dropped the doll on the floor and ran down the hall screaming. "No one seemed to care. They just laughed at Carly as the blood dripped from her arm.

lived deep in the farm hills of West Haven. They didn't watch much TV or
believe that there was life outside of our universe that may come to pay the
earth a visit. All that was about to change when Sam and Brenda were returning
home from vacation on a beautiful nightly lit sky with a full moon shining down
on the road. As Brenda was gazing at the moon and stars a beam of light shown
down on the Matthews car, blinding them both which caused their vehicle to
drive off the road. Then all of a sudden the Matthews vanished from their
vehicle. The Matthews were returned to their vehicle which only felt like a
minute to them both, but in reality they were missing for three hours. The
Matthews had no recollection of what just happened, but Brenda remembered her
watch said ten pm. Her watch now said one am.
Brenda said "Sam, I know my watch said ten pm
not one am."
"Are you sure?" asked Sam.
"Yes! I'm sure," replied Brenda.
They both looked at each other in amazement, but
just thought it was because of the long drive and they were both tired, so Sam
just drove on. It wasn't long before the Matthews were having nightmares of
being abducted by aliens and being experimented on. A friend of the Matthews
suggested they both go under hypnosis to find out if it was all just a dream. While
they both were under hypnosis both had similar recollections of what happened
that night. Brenda told the hypnotherapist, "I watched as two grey aliens
put a probe inside my husband’s body as he was screaming out in excruciating
pain and calling my name, but there was nothing I could do about it. I couldn't
move my body even if I wanted too. Tears just ran down the sides of my cheeks
and I screamed out at the aliens saying what are you doing to my husband? The
aliens just glanced over for a moment and then proceeded with their experiment
with no feeling at all. I did notice a small metal object being put inside my
husband’s arm and that's all I recall. Apparently, I blacked out then found
myself back in the car with Sam at the wheel driving us home."
Halloween party when John, being the only non-believer in ghosts, asked Karen
and me if the stories about the many sightings of ghosts in the old ghost town
were true. Of course we said they were all true, and of course his response
was, "These stories are just a bunch of made up stuff to keep nosey people
from vandalizing the old town."
"Well, if it's not true,
then why don't all of us camp out tonight at the ghost town and put these old
stories to rest once and for all?" I replied. I told John that I would get
my tent and some blankets. Karen volunteered to bring some food and
flashlights, and John said he would bring some firewood, beer, and his guitar.
I decided we would all ride together in my car. Everyone was excited about telling
our friends at school all about our spooky tales when we got back, but little
did we know that there would be no tales to tell because we would never be
heard from again.
As we were driving down the
dusty, country road John was strumming on his guitar as we all sang along
joyfully. We were having the time of our lives just being together because we
were such great friends. Just up ahead of us was a man in the middle of the
road on a horse.
"Slow down!" Karen
exclaimed. I immediately slammed on my
brakes. John doesn't scare easily, but this man on the horse in the middle of
this dark, deserted road gave John the willies. The closer we got to the
mounted figure the more frightened we all became, but we just kept driving. We
blamed it on the beer we were drinking and proceeded to the old ghost town. We
just couldn't face all of our friends the next day and say we were too scared
to camp out there. We would be the laughing stock of the school, so we
As we approached the entrance to
the town the car stalled. We were definitely not going to walk back home since
it was too far and we didn't want to end up running for our lives from that
mysterious man on the horse. So, we gathered our belongings and crossed through
the entrance. We turned our flashlights on and looked for a safe place to camp
for the night.
"Where did that man on the
horse go?" Karen asked as we walked.
"Who knows and who
cares," John quickly replied.
All of a sudden the mounted
figured appeared and charged full steam ahead in our direction. His eyes were
as red as fire. We all froze in our tracks. He rode right through us as if we
were the ghosts. It was enough to turn any skeptic into a believer. I told
everyone to get our cell phones out and call our parents to come pick us up,
but none of our phones would get a signal.
"Well it looks like we're
stuck here for the night," John said, "we may as well make the best
"This looks like a good
place to pitch a tent--right next to the saloon and bank." I replied. John
placed the firewood on the ground and tried to get the fire started while Karen
and I got the tent set up. We all gathered around the campfire to keep warm and
sang a few songs to try to lighten the mood. Karen decided after awhile that we
should tell some stories about the old ghost town.
"All right, who wants to
tell their story first?" Karen asked excitedly.

biggest skeptic, I'll tell my story first. My father told me this tale when I

been condemned in a small town known as Docerville. Johnny's parents didn't
have much money to put food on the table for little Johnny to eat. Johnny's
father Jack worked at Doc's gas station in Docerville whenever he wasn't
drunk. Johnny's mother Susan worked as a
waitress at Dugers Diner also located in Docerville, but only part-time because
she had an alcohol problem as well. The Delmer's didn't own a car, so if they
wanted to go to work or to the store they had to walk in the heat, rain or
snow. Being that Johnny was just a little boy with dreams and visions like any
little boy his age. All Johnny knew was the poor life he was given and had no idea
most people owned cars or had running water in their homes. If little Johnny
wanted a drink of water he would go to the well in the back of the cabin and if
Johnny was lucky he would get enough water in his cup to wet his lips.
Johnny's father had a short fuse and it didn't take
much to set him off. If little Johnny wanted to spend time with his daddy. His
dad would kick him and tell him to go play with the chickens while he scolded
his wife Susan about how awful her food tasted. Johnny didn't like the way his
father treated his mother. For instance, if Susan didn't cook his food on time
he would beat her or if he thought the food was too cold he would throw the
plate of food at her. Jack would make comments like, "What kind of woman
are you, you can't cook or clean. I don't know why I married you."Jack
would also call her a fat pig. Seeing the way Johnny's father treated his
mother was the early stages that would mold little Johnny Delmer into a Serial

else that most collectors would pass on. John was happy with his collections,
but he was looking for something his friends would say why did you add this to
Just as John was traveling through a little town
called Pleasantville. The town was so small you could throw a rock from one end
of the town to the other end. John just
about missed the town and his long awaited rare antique to add to his
collection. Then all of a sudden he slammed on his brakes. He backed up his car
in front of a sign that was dusty and barely hanging on to the wooden post.
John got out of his car to read what was on the sign. He dusted off the sign
and said, "Wow! I'm glad I stopped in the nick of time or I would have
never known about this place.
John got back in his car and traveled down the
gravel road in search of this antique store. John must have been traveling down
the gravel road for more than thirty minutes. Just as he was about to say
forget it, and drive back home, there was a sign that read Pleasantville
John pulled in to the Antique store and parked his
car. He looked up at the sky and got one glimpse as the sun was setting. As he got out of his car the wind was picking
up and a storm was on the way. As John opened the door to the antique store it
started storming. John called out to see if anyone was in the store. Then an
old man shouted out and said, "I'll be with you in just a moment, there
are milk and cookies on the table if you're hungry from your long drive."
John went over to the table and poured a glass of
milk and picked up one of the cookies and said, "Your cookies are
wonderful. They're still warm as though you were expecting company."
Finally, the old man came to the front of the store
to greet John.
"I'm glad you like my cookies," replied
the old man.
"Why don't you have a seat at the table and
tell me what you are looking for?" exclaimed the old man.
"You see, I'm somewhat of an odd collector of
antiques. I mainly get a rush out of finding something that my fellow antique
buddies don't have." answered John.
"Well I think you came to the right place
John," replied the old man.
"How do you know my name? I really don't, I
just got lucky and guessed the right name," laughed the old man.
John got up from the table and looked out the window
and said, "It looks like the rain has stopped. I really need to get back
soon before the rain starts pouring down again."
"Follow me behind the curtain at the back of
the store. That's where I keep my rarest and most valued antiques. I'm sure
there is something you will like," replied the old man with a smile on his
John followed the old man behind the curtain and the
old man said, "Since you are looking for something your antique collecting
buddies wouldn't dare think to collect, this is what you need to complete your
"This is what I've been looking for, you've got
to be kidding me," replied John as he laughed.
"Don't be so quick to think this is some kind
of joke," exclaimed the old man.
"A clown costume, I'm not sure this is
something I need to complete my collection," answered John.
"This is no ordinary clown costume. This clown
costume dates back to the mid eighteen hundreds. Let me tell you the story
about how the clown costume is so rare and worth collecting. A man by the name
of Henry Smith loved dressing up like a clown and putting on parties for the
children that lived in his town. When Henry returned home from the parties, his
wife would badger him about how much of a loser he was and being a clown
doesn't put food on the table. Henry began drinking heavily and would show up
drunk at the children’s parties. When the children told their parents that
Henry would stagger around at their party and take a drink from an unknown
container and asked what he was drinking, Henry would say "Its only water."
When the parents would question Henry about their
children seeing him staggering around and drinking from a metal container Henry
made up a story that his right leg was partially paralyzed and his metal
container was just water he was drinking.
Henry's wife was noticing a change in Henry's behavior.
When she confronted him, he just told her to mind her own business. I know you
need to get back before more rain sets in so I'll go ahead and shorten the rest
of the story. According to the sheriff that captured Henry riding his horse
down dead man's trail in his clown costume the sheriff shot Henry in the
shoulder and he fell off his horse. Then the sheriff got off his horse and came
over to Henry and said, "For what you have done, I sentence you to be
hanged." The sheriff shot Henry in both legs so he wouldn't try to escape.
The sheriff went over to a tree next to where Henry's wounded body lay and
threw his lasso over a tree branch. He went over and picked up Henry's weak
body and sat him on his horse next to the tree and slipped the rope around his neck.
Then he kicked the horse and the horse took off running. Henry slid off the
horse swinging back and forth trying to free himself as the life was being
choked out of him from the noose around his neck.
The sheriff said, "It was one thing when you
killed your wife, but when you killed your children no trial was needed. I felt
the whole town would agree on my sentencing you to death by hanging."
The old man said, "What do you think of the
story I just told you."
John replied, "That was some kind of story. It
really is a sad one, but that makes this clown costume that much more worth
"Here, now take it, and run along and put it to
good use. But there is one thing about this costume that has another legend
behind it," said the old man.
"What's that?" asked John.
"The sheriff and his men cut off Henry's head
and buried his body with his costume still on.
Legend has it that some of the town’s people
reported seeing a headless clown with a knife in one hand and in the other hand
a basket full of severed heads. The clown would knock on neighbors’ doors. If
someone answers their door the headless clown would cut their head off and the
clown would put their head in his basket. The townspeople thought it was the
clown’s way of seeking revenge for not having a fair trial for killing his
High School. Whenever Sally tried out for sports she would be picked on by her
classmates because she was a tomboy. Sally had buck teeth and matted hair and
slurred her speech. She also wore the same clothes to school every day. Sally
was poor and was being raised by her alcoholic grandfather who didn't have long
to live, maybe weeks at best.
When her classmates got wind of the passing of her
grandfather the following week they started picking on her pretty hard.
Classmates would say things like "I can see why your grandfather died so
soon. It's because you're so ugly and stupid. Just the looks of you helped
shorten his life."
Sally was boiling inside and had nowhere to turn or
seek comfort in the arms of her parents. Sally's parents were both killed in a
home invasion and the only living relative she had was her alcoholic
grandfather. Sally's dreams of having a loving family, was shattered by the
pull of a trigger.
Sally never got much food to eat from her
grandfather, because he was always spending what little money he had on
alcohol. In her grandfathers mind alcohol is the only friend he had and cared
about. Sally had to revert to going through neighbors trash cans for her daily
meals. Sometimes the neighbors’ felt sorry for her and would welcome her into
their home and feed her, but what little the neighbors did for her still didn't
heal the wounds she was bottling up inside her broken heart and the years of
being picked on from her classmates. Things were about to come to a head with
her classmates that would turn deadly for them all.
Prom night was around the corner and Sally always
dreamed about being asked to the prom by the high school's most popular guy.
Sally's dream was about to become a reality, but only for a brief moment.
Doug Stevens was Gravendale's star quarterback
and the most popular guy in school. Doug and a few of his buddies had a plan to
make Sally the laughing stock of the school. Their plan would push Sally over
the edge and bring devastating consequences to Doug and his friends.
Henry's luck and entire life was about to change, because one of Henry's rich friends was invited to a party. His friend only knew the person that invited him, so he thought it would be a good idea to bring someone he knew to keep him company. Henry and his friend were having a good time at the party. Henry told Jack he was going to get some punch and would be back shortly. Just as Henry was scooping up some punch a pretty blonde woman approached Henry and introduced herself to him because Henry's appearance took her breath away. She knew he was the one for her and she wasn't going to let someone else take him away.
"Excuse me sir, could I please have some punch?" asked Monique. "Sure," said Henry. Henry was blown away by her beauty and was very happy they met. Monique said, "I heard you're a friend of Jack's, he's really a great guy. Don't you think so?" "Yeah, he's been a close friend of mine for many years. Jack and I went to the same schools growing up," said Henry."I tell you what, would you like to come over to my place this Saturday around 6:00 and I'll cook you a good meal?" asked Monique. "I'd be delighted to try your cooking. I'm sure I won't be disappointed," said Henry. "Great! I'd like to introduce you to my godparents," Monique said.
After the party was over Monique asked Henry if he would escort her to her car. As Monique got in her car and Henry was turning away to meet up with Jack, Monique rolled down her window in the car and said "Henry could you come over here for a moment?" Then she said, "Henry, it's quite alright if you'd like to kiss me goodbye." So Henry kissed her and said, "Could I kiss you one more time?" Monique, said, "Sure! That's fine with me." After they kissed Monique said, "I'll see you Saturday and don't be late." Henry replied, "Don't you worry, I won't be late."
Monique drove off into the sunset to her mansion. Henry got into the car with Jack and Jack asked, "How'd it go Henry?" Henry said, "I believe I just found the woman I've been searching for all of my life." "That's great! I hope it works out for you both," said Jack."Jack, she wants me to meet her god parents this Saturday." Jack responded, "Did you know her parents left her a vast fortune before their untimely death several years ago? They died when their private jet crashed over Mexico during a vacation. You think I've got a lot of money Monique's wealth makes me look poor. If you marry Monique you'll be set for life.""That's what I'm banking on," said Henry. Jack said "Well here's where I drop you off and let me know how Saturday goes." "I'll let you know, don't worry," said Henry.
Henry bought a nice suit to impress Monique for their Saturday date. When Henry was finished with dinner at Monique's, Henry gave Monique a kiss goodbye and Monique said "Why don't you spend the night with me? This big house gets pretty lonely at night and I could sure use the company." "Are you sure it's okay? You really don't know me that well," said Henry. "Come on Henry! I don't bite!" said Monique. Henry accepted Monique's invitation and they shared some wine together before turning in for the night.
As Monique and Henry lay in bed together Monique asked Henry if he would be interested in moving in with her. Henry replied "I would love to move in with you. I'm tired of being a bachelor and I really enjoy being with you. By the end of the week Henry moved into Monique's mansion and within a month they were married.
Many years had passed, there were good times and bad times. Henry liked his scotch and whiskey and it showed. Henry loved Monique's money more than her. Monique was very depressed and not happy with Henry's spending. Henry and Monique fought a lot and that’s probably what fueled Henry's drinking and Monique's depression. It was hard for Monique to get around because she had fallen down the stairs and shattered the bones in her right leg. She had to limp around. Monique's beauty was deteriorating and Henry felt it was time to get rid of Monique so he could have her fortune to himself.
started life off with three strikes against him. He was born on a sacrificial
altar that his mother was sacrificed on during a Satanic Ritual. Jason's father
was the leader of the satanic cult known as “Satan’s 7 Demon Knights” that were
conducting the ritual. Jason's mother was being sacrificed because she wanted
out of her husband's satanic cult. Jason's father raised the sacrificial knife
and drove it through his wife's heart as she screamed in agony. As her blood
dripped off of the sacrificial altar, Jason's father cut open her belly reached
inside and pulled his newborn baby son out and dipped his finger in his wife's
blood. Then Jason's father drew a pentagram on his son's forehead and proceeded
to read some verses of the satanic bible to welcome his son into his cult,
Satan’s 7 Demon Knights. Jason had no idea he was going to be molded into one
of the most evil men this town has ever known.
because he was an outcast with his classmates at school. Billie stood about
four feet nine inches tall with jet black hair and a lisp when he would
talk. Billie always dreamed about being Class President one day and even
his ultimate dream was to be the President of the United States of
America but that was stretching it a bit too far. Billie never stood up
for himself . He would just suppress his feelings but we all know that's not healthy
to bottle up your anger.
As Billie was
finishing out his senior year at Ragsdale High School, Billie’s classmates
invited him to a Graduation party at Darren's house as a peace offering for all
the bad deeds that were done to him during his school years. Billie had no idea
this wasn't a peace offering, it was just another trick that would cause
Billie to want to get even with his classmates. His classmates didn't know they
were about to unleash an evil force that would be their last trick that they
would ever play on anyone again.
Billie was so excited to go to the party and have a
good time and put all the pranks behind him. Boy was he in for a big
surprise. Billie showed up right on time dressed in his cap and gown and ready
to party before graduation that would begin in about three hours. As Billie
knocked on the door he could hear the laughter and music that was coming from
inside the house, but the laughter was about the prank that the classmates
would be playing on Billie.
The door opened and Billie stepped inside ready
to party. Everyone was so nice to Billie and telling him how nice he looked and
congratulating him on graduating in the top ten of his class. Darren the main
prankster of the whole bunch took Billie over to get some punch and cake to
eat. The punch that Billie was about to drink was laced with enough sleeping
pills to knock him out for a solid hour so the classmates could carry on the
hunger for fame. The camera Delbert used was a cheap Kodak instamatic. You can
see why Delbert dreamed of owning a Nikon like his rich friend Michael. Michael
would let his friend Delbert develop his pictures in his dark room while he was
developing his own. Delbert really envied Michael's photographs and would often
close his eyes and day dream about being a famous photographer some day.
Delbert was only fifteen years old. He
wasn't old enough to get a job like his friend Michael and bring in a big paycheck.
As Michael was puffing on his cigarette in the dark
room developing his film beside Delbert, Michael would often make remarks about
Delbert's photographs and tell him if he wants to take pictures like him he
needs to throw that cheap camera in the trash and buy one like his. Delbert
replied with a lump in his throat "You know I don't have a job and my
parents wouldn't even consider buying me a camera such as yours."
Michael replied back saying, "You know
something Delbert, either you get a good quality camera or I'm going to ask you
to stop developing your photographs in my dark room. Your photographs are
Delbert answered back in a sad tone of voice,
"That wasn't a very nice thing to say to your friend."
"I know, but it’s the truth and sometimes the
truth hurts," exclaimed Michael.
"Well let me tell you something Michael, I'm
going to own a camera like yours someday and when I do you'll be jealous of
me," said Delbert in a stern voice.
Delbert took his instamatic camera and photographs
with him and told Michael he wouldn't be back to see him until he found that
special camera. Michael just laughed and said to Delbert," Looks like I'll
be in the old folks home when that happens."
Delbert exited the dark room and slammed the door
behind him, walked home and threw his instamatic camera at his bedroom wall.
Delbert said, "What have I done, now I don't have a camera. What am I
going to do now?"
Delbert sat on his bed crying because he knew he had
no way of replacing the instamatic camera he just broke. Delbert made up a
story about how the camera broke, but his father just laughed and said,"
Are you out of your mind. You'll be able to get a job in about a year then you
can buy yourself a new camera."
Delbert's father turned away and told Delbert he
didn't want to hear any whining about how I should buy you a new camera.
Delbert yelled at his father saying," But Dad it was an accident."
Delbert's father turned back around and kicked him in his rear end and slammed
the door behind him. Delbert lied down on his bed and cried his eyes out the
rest of the night.
Morning came and Delbert wiped the remaining tears
from his cheeks. Delbert took a deep breath and said a prayer. Delbert decided
instead of lying in bed all day sulking about why his friend Michael would be
saying I told you so. Delbert got dressed and grabbed an apple from the kitchen
and a soda headed down the road on foot in search of that special camera. As Delbert was walking around the town square
he came across an Antique shop that had an old bellows camera in the display
window. Delbert said to himself, "If I could just have that camera I bet
it would take better pictures than Michael's." Delbert slumped over with
tears again flowing down his cheeks knowing in reality there was no way he could
afford such a beautiful camera. Just as Delbert was walking past the Antique
shop, an old man opened the door and came up to Delbert and said, "I
noticed you were looking at that old camera in the window as if it belonged to
Delbert answered, "Yes, Sir, I was only
wishing. I knew in my heart I could not afford such a beautiful camera.
Besides, I don't even have a job or any money to give you and my father told me
the only way I could buy a new camera was to get a job next year. By that time
your camera would be gone and I would be heartbroken once more. Well I better
be on my way, because if I don't get home soon my dad is going to whoop
"Not so fast!” the old man said in a tender
voice. I've never had anyone come by my shop and want any of my antiques like
you have. I tell you what if you really want the camera it’s yours to keep.
Don't worry about the money your money is no good to me. There's only one
condition. Bring me a copy of the photos you take. I have a scrap book that I
would like to place them in. That's all I ask of you. What do you say?"
Delbert answered back eagerly, "Yes, Sir,
Delbert started crying because his prayer had been answered.
had just recently moved back to Germany on Bill's parent's farm due to their
passing. Little did Bill and his wife know that the lake on his parent's farm
contained a small army of Nazi soldier's that met their fate during World War
II on the farm, and that their final resting place was at the bottom of the
lake Bill's father never told his son about the dead Nazi soldiers in his lake
because he didn't want him to have nightmares, but days after moving into his
parent's farm Bill noticed a green foam on the surface of the lake, and decided
to call the water department to see if it was something out of the ordinary.
The water department said it was probably because of an overabundance of algae
and not to be concerned. As the days wore on, and the green foam was covering
most of the lake Bill decided to call one of his good friends that was a
scientist to have him come out, and get to the bottom of this green substance
because the water department wasn't too concerned about Bill's problem.
The next day Bill's friend
Steve Kliner the scientist brought his testing equipment to test the lake
water. Bill said "Steve how long do you think it will take to find out
what the cause of this green substance is?"
Steve answered, "I
should know something this evening when I run all the tests?"
Bill had no idea the chemicals that Steve was about to
pour into the lake would unleash something evil that had been lying dormant for
fifty years at the bottom of the lake.
hundred acre farm with plenty of livestock to keep their family's lifestyle
above everyone else in town. Johnny Walker stood six feet six inches tall but
was as gentle as a kitten. Johnny's wife Elizabeth was by far the prettiest
woman around. The Walker's had two beautiful children Sarah and Jimmy. The
children grew up fast because their father was an ex-marine in the Vietnam War
and believed in hard work and didn't want to raise lazy children on his farm.
Johnny was the town’s butcher, always happy to
supply their town with the best meat around. Local farmers would drive for
miles just to get in on Johnny's secret, but Johnny wasn't about to give up his
secret to no one.
Johnny's wife, Elizabeth, was Eadendale’s Elementary
school teacher. She taught math to first graders. Elizabeth loved her job
teaching children to be all they can be. Elizabeth hoped the children she
taught would grow up to be teachers some day and instill values she taught
Sarah and Jimmy would work after school on their
father's farm whatever little they could do to help their father out. Johnny
would teach his children how to plant, kill chickens, and tend to the cattle on
the farm. Johnny would tell his children, "If I sat around all day long
hoping the corn would grow and that we would always have food on the table, we
would all starve to death. Johnny Walker's children had a good foundation to
grow up and be all they can be in whatever obstacles came their way.
Johnny Walker's farm had been hit with a serious
drought. The Walker family’s farm was facing hard times and their recovery
wouldn't be swift. The Walker family lost most of their cattle and corn, so
times were getting even harder. Johnny thought next season would be a better
one but it was the roughest year than the year before. Tension was building
between Johnny and his wife, Elizabeth. They argued constantly over money.
Elizabeth wanted Johnny to give up the farm so they could survive but Johnny
was too hard headed for that.
One night Elizabeth had all she could take from
Johnny yelling at her. When she got home from a hard day at work all Elizabeth
would see is Johnny sitting at the kitchen table with a bottle of whiskey in
his hand and slurring his speech.
Elizabeth said, "That's it, I'm going out and
don't wait up for me."
"Don't worry, I won't," said a drunken
As Elizabeth slammed the door behind her, Johnny
threw the bottle of whiskey at the door shattering the bottle into a million
Johnny said, "Don't come back."
Johnny passed out on the kitchen table. Sarah and Jimmy
came out of their rooms crying and came up to the kitchen table where their
father was passed out trying to console him.
Johnny said, "Why don't you kids go to your
rooms. I'll be alright. I'll come get you both in a few minutes and take you
out to the stable and we’ll ride horses to take our mind off of things."
The children returned to their rooms while their daddy cleaned up to take them
horseback riding. Johnny knocked on Sarah and Jimmy's door telling them it's
time to go horseback riding. Jimmy and Sarah had a great time riding horses
with their dad.
"Kids, it's getting late I think we need to
bring the horses back to the stable and turn in for the night. I'll read you
both a bed time story," said Johnny. Johnny read Sarah and Jimmy a bedtime
story and kissed them goodnight. Then Johnny got in his truck and headed to the
liquor store to get a new bottle of whiskey to drown out his sorrows. Johnny
drank well into the night waiting to see when his beautiful wife Elizabeth
would be returning home. Elizabeth finally arrived at around 3:00 am in the
Johnny said, "Where have you been."
"None of your business," said Elizabeth.
Johnny grabbed Elizabeth by the arm and said,
"What do you mean none of my business. You're my wife."
Johnny and Elizabeth got into a struggle and Johnny
slapped Elizabeth's face. Elizabeth broke free and ran to her room crying.
Saying, "Why did I come back he doesn't really love me anyway."
Johnny knocked on her door trying to get in but the
door was locked. Johnny pleaded with her to open the door but she said,
"Get away!! Leave me alone!"
Johnny turned away and headed to the living room
with his bottle of whiskey to drown away his problems. Somehow the whiskey
wasn't doing the trick but Johnny was too far gone and too addicted to stop
Morning came. Johnny was sprawled out on the couch
snoring like a freight train with an empty bottle of whiskey lying next to his
chest. Elizabeth got the children ready for school and left for work. Sarah and
Jimmy were scared their father might hurt them because of his sickness.
Their father reassured them he would never lay a
hand on them and he was very sorry he hit their mother. Johnny got himself
cleaned up and got himself a job at the local diner to show his wife he was
serious about their relationship. Elizabeth seemed to be happy once more and
things were looking brighter for their marriage but all it took was Johnny's
lips to touch the tip of the whiskey bottle and things were back like they were
once before. This time Johnny was drinking all day long and Elizabeth was
hitting the bars looking for any man that would give her the attention she
wasn't getting at home from her husband Johnny.
sky, but he didn’t think much about them until June 14, 1963. One night, on his
dad’s farm, he saw the lights behind the barn. Billy, being the curious type,
put on his cowboy boots, hat, and lone ranger holster, ready to take the
outlaws in. Billy was only ten years old and didn’t realize that the lights he
saw were something he should have told his parents about.
“I’m not afraid of any varmint! I’ll capture those
varmints and take them to my daddy! Then I’ll be a hero!”
Billy opened his bedroom window and climbed down the
tree. He softly called for his dog, Trigger, to come along in case these
varmints were hostile.
“Now, Trigger, be very quiet. We want to sneak up
behind these varmints, tie them up with my lasso and bring them to my dad
Billy and Trigger made their way to the side of the
barn unnoticed. All of a sudden, Trigger ran behind the barn and began barking
at the intruders. Billy ran after him, calling out his name. When he reached
the back of the barn, Billy froze. He heard Trigger yelp and a beam of light
came down from the sky. In a blink of an eye, Trigger was gone.
“What have you done to Trigger?!” Billy cried
desperately. “Who are you, and where are you from?!”
There was no answer. Billy realized that the lights
he saw behind the barn were more than just lights. It was a silver disk that
was being flown by grey colored creatures about four and a half feet tall.
“You just wait until my daddy finds out about this!”
Billy yelled to the creatures.
He tried to move, but he couldn’t. There was some
sort of force field around his body that kept him in place. The two aliens got
out of the craft and approached Billy. They escorted him to their ship with
plans to experiment on him.
his family had just gotten back from their vacation when they received a phone
call from Darren's Aunt Matilda.
Matilda said, “your Uncle Henry was found dead in the wine
cellar. I really need
you to come by the mansion and help me straighten out my affairs. You are the
only one I can trust with this matter. I hope your family doesn't mind if you
come stay with me for a while until I get this all sorted out."

replied. “Just get some rest, and I'll be there in the morning to start the
“I feel so
much better knowing that you'll be helping me out. I know your Uncle
Henry would've wanted it that way,” said Matilda. “Henry was always proud of
your accomplishments. He cared about you so much that he wanted you to have the
mansion should he ever leave us. What do you think about that Darren?”
Darren had a chance to reply she interjected, “Before you say a word, there are
no living relatives besides you and I, and we both know that my age and my
health would not allow me to take on the huge task of making sure the mansion
is in tip top shape. Your family belongs here. I know this place has a horrid
past, but maybe you and your family can bring many years of happiness to it.”
She paused for a moment, “Your Uncle should've
never gotten mixed up in the occult with his father Merlin. Henry said that if
we were to get married someday he would give up his father's wicked ways. I was
so naïve and in love with him… I didn't see the secrets that he kept from me,
until it was too late.
death of your uncle, I have now discovered hidden passages in some of the rooms
that I never knew existed. The
Red Room on the east side has a large pentagram in
the middle of the floor and a table with blood stains on it—where I assume was
used for human sacrifices. I also noticed when I touched the walls, there was
heavy padding covering them, and the door was thick with blood. I would imagine
the padding was done to sound proof the room so that if any visitors came by
and happened to pass the Red Room, they wouldn't be able to hear any screams.”
She hesitated. "Darren, you're not going
to believe this, but I found a diary Henry was keeping about the rituals that
took place inside the Red
Room… including all the gory details. The number of
people that died inside that room is inconceivable… I just can't believe I knew
nothing about what went on.
“I did notice that the door was always kept
locked. But whenever I would ask the maid, she would tell me that it was locked
because Henry and his father were working on a break through invention.
Apparently it would bring the family a great fortune and they didn't want
anyone to steal their secret.
being the naïve person that I was, I just left it at that and never brought it
up again. If only I would have been the kind of wife that knew all of her

involved and moved away from this horrid mansion. My husband may still be alive

murderess deeds. It's all up to you, Darren, to destroy any remaining books,

hear her breathe a sigh of relief. “Oh, that sounds wonderful! Thank you…” Her
tone then turned somber. “Listen… Henry always was very
protective of you. This was because he knew that you were the only true heir to
the mansion. You had no idea—no one did—that your uncle had planned for you to
take his place.
when you were a little boy, Henry would enter the Red Room as
you slept and perform certain rituals that went unnoticed until his passing. I
only know now because of his diary. It was written on the very last page, as if
the process was complete and it was your destiny to take over.”
chuckled a bit, “Matilda, there is no way my uncle would have the power to
choose another human being’s destiny! This is all hogwash, and that's all it
can be. I'll prove it to you when I arrive! We'll go through each room in the
mansion, and I'll read all of his writings to show you that it's all just
words. There is no way there is any truth to any of this.”

took his advice and tried to sleep it off. It only took about an hour before
she had fallen into a deep sleep. Suddenly Matilda's bed began shaking
violently and she could hear screams coming from the Red Room. The
voices of Henry and his father were telling her she would die before sunset.
jumped out of bed and ran to the door only to find that it was locked. She
screamed and beat on the door, hoping that the maid would hear her. Little did
she know, the maid had already met her end.
Henry's ghost came into her room and summoned her to the Red Room. The
maid’s will wasn't strong enough to resist his force. She rose from her bed and
followed the voice to the Red Room. Henry and
his father Merlin were waiting for her there.
flowing down Matilda’s cheeks and her body was trembling as she lay
in her bed. All she wanted was to run out of her room and out of the mansion,
but her fate was already sealed. She took a deep breath and repeated to
herself, “There are no ghosts in this place…there are no ghosts in this
place...there are no ghosts in this place…"
All of a
sudden, the room grew silent. She slowly approached the door and turned the
knob. The door opened without hesitation. Matilda slowly stepped out of her
room and started walking towards the Red Room. As
she inched closer, her heart was beating out of her chest. She knew that if she
could make it past this room, she could run down the stairs and out the door
and never return.
Henry and Merlin could not allow the authorities to find out their secrets.
Just as Matilda's foot was dead center of the Red Room, the
door flew open. Matilda screamed at the top of her lungs and tried to run, but
it was as though someone was holding her back. Matilda was frozen with fear and
bewilderment. She had really thought she could make it to the front door and
never return to the mansion again. Matilda's eyes were blinded by a bright
light coming from the Red Room. A strong force
whipped Matilda's frozen body into the room and slammed the door behind her.
She was never heard from again.
and Karen Billings together. Anytime they had free time, they could be found
aboard their most prized possession, the Marlow
Explorer. The seventy-eight foot yacht was large enough to seat about
fifteen people and had always been the go-to place for countless parties,
relaxing weekends, and romantic getaways. However, the demanding nature of work
and everyday life often stole the majority of Jack and Karen’s time. Now over
fifty years old, they were beginning to get back in touch with their love for
the sea. Having just returned from a six month long sailing trip, the couple
was eager to revive the lives of their friends as well.
"Why don’t we throw a Halloween party?”
Jack volunteered. “The weather looks perfect for sailing, and it’d be a great
way to get all our friends back together.” Karen smiled at the thought,
remembering the parties from their younger days. “That’s a great idea,” she
replied. “It’s been so long since we’ve seen any of them. I’m sure they’d love
Immediately Karen’s mind
went to work on how to decorate the yacht and what costume she should wear.
“Just picture it, Jack,” Karen said with excitement. “Cob webs covering the
walls below deck, ghosts hanging from the mast, vampires in coffins, and
witches by a cauldron of punch. And, of course, a fog machine to complete the
mood!” “Perfect!” Jack laughed and smiled at his wife. Just the thought of a
party had brought out her youth. He watched her hurry around the yacht in
excitement, planning out the perfect places for decorations. She eventually
noticed him watching her and skipped over to him. “Well don’t just stand
there!” She said with a giggle. “You’ve got some invitations to send!”
About two weeks later,
Halloween finally arrived. Karen had spent two days prior to the party
decorating every square inch perfectly. "I hope everyone shows up on
time," said Karen as she paced back and forth in the kitchen, dressed in
her elaborate witch’s costume. Jack chuckled. "Don't worry,” he said,
pulling her from her pacing and into a hug. “No one would miss a party like
this!” Karen smiled and let herself be relaxed by his embrace. They walked onto
the deck hand in hand and gazed out onto the horizon. “The ocean is so calm;
not a cloud in the sky,” Jack remarked. They spent a few moments taking in the
peaceful view until they heard the sound of car doors slamming. Jack turned
around and saw three cars parked at the marina. He reached inside his pocket
and pulled out two fangs. “Wouldn’t want to greet our old friends out of
costume!” Jack said with a wink.
They both moved towards
the walkway excitedly and watched as their friends approached in full costume.
First were Tim and Sarah Smith, who they had known for nearly twenty years,
dressed as Marc Antony and Cleopatra. Behind them were David and Martha
Jackson, both cloaked in ghostly white sheets. Jack squinted to see the last
couple. “I think that’s Sam and Emma Tate," said Jack eagerly.Karen
leaned closer to see and nodded in confirmation. Sam was dressed as the Grim
Reaper, complete with a plastic scythe, and Emma was wrapped from head to toe
in bandages, making a convincing mummy. Karen and Jack enthusiastically
greeted their guests, and everyone began chattering and catching up.
Ten minutes later, the Marlow Explorer set sail on the calm
ocean for the Halloween night cruise.Karen poured everyone a glass of champagne
as they were catching up with one another. Jack tapped on his champagne glass
with a spoon, and everyone turned their eyes to him. "Everyone, I have an
announcement to make. Karen and I have been married now for thirty years.
Having my closest friends here aboard with me makes it that much more of a
special occasion.” Turning his attention to his wife, he continued with a tear
in his eye, “Karen, darling, I just want to say thank you for the best years of
my life. I want to give you this gift as a token of my appreciation."
Everyone smiled as Karen stepped forward, now sobbing happily herself.
"Thank you, darling,” she sniffed. “I'm so proud to be your wife. There's
nothing I would have rather done than be with you all these years." Jack
embraced Karen and handed her a neatly wrapped box. Everyone eagerly watched as
she peeled back the glistening paper to reveal a rectangular-shaped velvet box.
She lifted the lid, and everyone gasped at the gorgeous ruby necklace. Jack
helped her place it around her neck, and everyone clapped and admired the
As the ladies engulfed
Karen in a circle of glee, Tim Smith approached Jack. "I'm so happy for
you and Karen,” he said with a smile. “You both are the most generous people
I've ever met in my entire life. I just wish there were more like you. Then
this world wouldn't be so corrupt."Jack placed his arm around his old
friend. “Thanks, Tim. That really means alot to me, but you know I think you're
just as great. I'll never forget the time when I was working on my car and the
jack slipped and the car fell on my chest. If you didn't react the way you did,
I wouldn't be here today. I honestly owe this all to you." Tim chuckled
modestly and the two men fell silent.
After some time, Tim
suggested they head up on deck. When they climbed the stairs, they found the
Tates stargazing and walked over to join them. Just as Jack was about to sit
down he noticed a thick fog rolling in on the horizon. Sam followed his gaze.
"I don't like the looks of that fog,” he said. “There could be a ship or
something heading towards the yacht. We’d never see it coming."Jack
frowned and nodded with concern. He opened up a compartment beside him and
fished out a pair of binoculars. After observing the fog for a few moments, he
handed them to Sam.“I’ll go turn on the spotlight, but that might not help too
much.”“We could shoot a flare,” Sam offered. Jack nodded and checked the same
compartment for some. “Here, shoot one off and keep watch. I’ll be back in a
Jack walked quickly over
to his instrument panel and flipped on the spotlight. “That’s a bit better,”
Jack said, somewhat relieved. He tried to pinpoint the yacht’s coordinates, but
the compass was spinning out of control. He picked up the radio and tried to
reach someone, but all he heard was static. “What the hell is going on?” He heard
the flare shoot off and looked up, only to find that the fog was nearly fifty
yards away. He squinted his eyes in disbelief and noticed something else. He
could barely make out a tiny island emerging on the horizon. He looked down at
the map, but there were no islands listed. Jack tried to steer the boat in the
opposite direction, but it wouldn’t budge. He yanked the wheel with all his
might but still couldn’t manage to move it at all. He felt himself begin to
sweat nervously and picked up the radio receiver again. After several tries,
the Coast Guard finally answered. “This is the Marlow Explorer and we’ve
just entered some thick fog! My instruments don’t work, I can’t steer, and
we’re approaching an island that I can’t seem to locate on the ma--” The yacht
rocked violently and knocked Jack off his feet, leaving the receiver hanging.
He could see water spilling onto the deck and screamed, “My God! Everyone get below
Everyone ran downstairs
while Jack scrambled to his feet, snatching up his map. He leaped below deck
and sealed off the hatch before any more water poured into the cabin. Karen
rushed over to her husband and held onto him, trembling with fear. Martha had
begun to cry and her husband, David, was trying to console her. The rest sat quietly,
looking to Jack for instructions."There's really not much we can do. We've
lost access to the radio for now, and I can't locate this island on my map. The
instruments were spinning out of control like some magnetic force is taking
over. I tried to steer the boat, but the wheel won’t--” “Oh, heavens!” Martha
wailed, drowning out Jack. Panic swept over everyone, and Sarah began to sob as
well. Sam looked to Jack with fear. “Where exactly are we?”
Jack smoothed out his
crumpled map on the table next to him. Sam, Tim, and David peered over his
shoulder as Jack traced his finger across the surface. “If I'm not mistaken, we
are smack dab in the Bermuda Triangle.” He cleared his throat, “I used to think
the Bermuda Triangle stories were easily explained, but now... I'm not so
sure.” Martha wailed even louder while David tried to keep her calm.
"Maybe if we shoot more flares,” Sam said quickly, “A boat passing by
might see us and radio in for help to get us back on course." “We’re in
the Bermuda Triangle, Sam!” his wife blurted out. “Flares, radios--nothing is going to help us!” Martha
erupted in agreement, and everyone began to talk over each other. Jack looked at Karen resolutely and pulled
out a chair. He climbed onto it and whistled loudly. All the passengers got
silent and looked up at him. Karen took his hand in support. "Everyone! We
need to remain calm! It won’t do any good to panic.” "What do you think is
going on here?" Sam asked. "I think--” Emma chimed in before Jack
could respond, “I know we passed
through another dimension. There’s no doorway back to the life we once
knew!"Martha sobbed even louder, and David shot Emma an annoyed
look."That's just not possible!” he said resolutely, holding his wife as
she rocked back and forth. Jack hesitated for a moment before replying. “I
think she’s right,” he said quietly. A pensive silence swept across the yacht
as everyone attempted to process what was being said. “What about the island?”
Karen offered, “There must be hope for us if we can reach it.” Tim and David
nodded quickly in agreement. Sam walked over to the window and peered out at
the approaching land mass."Dear God, I really hope you're right."
After about thirty
minutes, the yacht sailed smoothly into the shallow waters surrounding the
island. The storm had passed, and Jack opened the hatch to drop anchor and Sam
followed close behind him. The sky was perfectly clear and the sea was eerily
calm. Jack lowered down the anchor slowly into the dark water. “Tell the others
to stay calm while we go check out the island,” Jack said. “Maybe there’s
someone on the island that can help us get back home.” Sam disappeared below
deck and a shrill wail followed his exit. “Martha,” Jack mumbled to himself,
shaking his head. Sam reappeared and the two men paddled towards the island in
a small lifeboat. “I can't believe how calm the weather is. It's like there
never was any fog. That's what the Bermuda Triangle is notorious for,"
Jack remarked. "I know. Emma’s been fascinated by all those stories for years.
She really believes them." Jack paused for a moment, “Honestly...I believe
them too.” They remained silent until reaching the island and split up to do a
About ten minutes later
they met back at the boat, having found no sign of life anywhere. "I think
it's safe to bring everyone to the island and set up camp. We need to figure
out how we’re going to survive until help arrives,” Jack said, slightly out of
breath."Sounds like a plan to me," Sam replied. They climbed back
into the lifeboat and rowed toward the yacht. As they got closer, they noticed
everyone was standing on deck. The two men rowed as fast as they could and
climbed aboard. David yelled to them, explaining that the motor on the pumps in
the engine room had burned up. Water had been filling up the hull ever since
they had left and the boat was sinking. Jack quickly boxed up some food and Sam
got the flares, a gun, flashlights, binoculars, matches and a rope and headed
back to the island. All nine of the Marlow
Explorer’s passengers watched in agony as the yacht was swallowed up by the
ocean. "I'm sure if we build a big fire and shoot off some flares some
passing ship will see us in a matter of minutes,” Sam said confidently. David
and Tim chimed in in support and headed off to find firewood.
House Attractions on Halloween that have people made up to be scary looking to
scare us even though it is all fake, and we know it, but we don't care we just
want to be scared. Meet Henry Adams he loves going to haunted attractions, but
was getting bored and not scared anymore, so he decided he was going to make
his own Haunted attraction that would be to die for literally. Henry wanted to
be the envy of all Halloween attractions and he is going to do it in a deadly
way. Henry knew if he was going to pull this off it had to be done in a big
way. Halloween was just a couple months away, and he had to think of something
special to do that would alleviate his loneliness in the dilapidated Mansion
out in the country where he was living all alone. Then out of the blue he said,
"I know just the perfect thing to do this Halloween, and that would be to
turn my mansion into a real life Haunted Mansion, but this has to be the real
thing not just a bunch of props.
That night as Henry was
daydreaming about what to do on his couch he wasn't about to doze off because
if he did he probably would forget. Henry immediately got off the couch, and
turned on the light, and got a piece of paper to write down his thoughts, and
act on them in the morning. After about an hour, and nonstop writing Henry
finally passed out on the couch with a beer in one hand, and the paper he was
writing down his thoughts on was lying on his chest. The beer Henry had in his
hand dropped to the floor spilling everywhere, but Henry was fast asleep and
didn't hear a thing.
Morning finally arrived and
Henry awoke to the sunlight beaming through the living room window. Henry wiped
his eyes and grabbed his paper full of ideas then stepped down off the couch
into a pool of beer getting his socks soaking wet. Henry said, "I must
have really been out of it last night." Then he went over to the kitchen
to get a towel and clean up the spilled beer. He made himself some breakfast
and sat at the kitchen table going over his ideas. When he was through eating
his breakfast he got on his clothes, and took his to do list with him then got
in his car eager to get the things he needed to turn his Mansion into a real
life Haunted Mansion.
Henry went into town to the
Halloween store for a fog machine to give his yard the kind of look that you
would see in scary movies. He also got things from the Halloween store such as
spooky music, strobe lights, black lights and cob webs. Henry was excited to
see his fantasy unfolding right in front of him.

looking for." Her husband stopped the car, and they got out of the car,
and walked up to the front door to see if anyone was home. Mr. Davis knocked on
the door, and a man dressed in black opened the door, and said in a low eerie
voice, "Won't you come in and see the mansion?" The Davis's entered
the mansion and the creaky door slowly closed behind them. The creepy man in
black said, "I think you both will like the rest of the mansion, follow me
please." The Davis's were over taken by the beautiful antiques that
occupied each room. Mrs. Davis said to the man in black, "These antiques
must be very expensive." The man in black replied in an eerie voice,
"You are so right."
"Well what do you
think?" asked the man in black.
The Davis's replied,
"We'll take it."
The man in black pulled out what appeared to be the
deed to the house, and little did the Davis's know that whoever signs the
papers will die.
a cursed family when the tales of Fairies were very much real and feared among
many Irish families abroad. Since Patrick and Sophie only knew of the
tales that were told by their parents and were not directly affected by
the superstitions, they didn't really believe in any of them. Patrick
and Sophie would joke at times about the evil fairies that lived in
the forts just miles from where they lived. The children's father
would tell bedtime stories to their three children Seamus, Niall and
Aine. The children often had nightmares about fairies taking their souls
and coming back as a changeling to torment their family then die
shortly thereafter with their parents never realizing that it isn't their
children got a little older their fear of fairies seem to fade. One day
the children got the courage up to take a trip to the fairies fort to put their
fears to rest about these evil fairy tales their parent's told them when
they were too young to distinguish between fantasy and reality. Seamus was
the older of the three children and the bravest so it was evident that he would
be the one to lead them through the evil fairies fort. Aine was the youngest and the
most frightened but she knew her older brothers would take good care to
not let anything harm her. The children proceeded to sneak out of the
house when their mother Sophie stopped them dead in their tracks and said
"Where do you children think you're going." The children replied
"to ride our bikes through the trails and we'll make sure we get
back before sundown." The mother said "please be careful and you
better all be back for dinner." Seamus said "Don't worry Mum we'll be
right on time for dinner that's a promise." "Ok, now hurry along,
I've made cookies and hot apple pie for dessert said Sophie." The children got on their bikes and peddled
into the woods and waited for their mother to go inside the house. Seamus said
"think the coast is clear." So, they quietly pushed their bikes
back out of the woods to the side of their house and one by one slowly
rode their bikes to the street and took off as fast as they could
pedal down the road to the evil fairies fort.
Finally, after about an hour of riding down the road
they reached their destiny, the evil fairies fort. "There really is
such a place said Niall. Look at this place, it is really creepy looking, I
wouldn't want to live here said Aine." "Well since we're here
who wants to go in first said Seamus." "I do, said Niall." Niall
entered into the fort and immediately felt like he was being watched by someone
other than his sister and brother. "Is anyone feeling what I'm
feeling right now said Niall." Aine and Seamus laughed at
Niall."All I feel is a cool breeze, nothing unusual said
Seamus."Aine said "Niall don't talk like that, you know I
scare very easily." "No, I'm not kidding I really felt like
someone is watching me, said Niall." "I want to go home said
Aine." "Oh, it's probably nothing let's just stick close
together and not separate from one another said Seamus." Seamus said
"I don't believe this is really a fairies fort." Seamus found a metal
pipe, started shouting and swinging his metal
pipe with great force, desecrating the evil fairies fort. Seamus was in for a big surprise, each swing
of the metal pipe against the fort just angered the fairies even more. The
fairies seen enough and it was time to teach these kids a lesson that will be
All of a sudden there was a blinding light so
bright it lit up the whole fort. The children couldn't find their way out
and they were frozen with fear. All the children could hear was the evil fairies voice telling
them their souls were being taken right before their very eyes and when
they return to their home they will be changelings.
The skies were red as fire and the oceans and seas ran deep with blood. The
Devil liked what he created, so he created a demon called Beelzebub, meaning
"Prince of Demons" in his likeness and set him out into the world to
enjoy the Hell that was created. The Devil explained to Beelzebub
"whatever you do don’t eat the fruit from the Garden of
Hell."Beelzebub replied “why master, it looks tasty.” The Devil answered,
“If you do, you won’t see the wonderful Hell that I have created for you. Just
to make sure you don’t eat of the tree, I have created Gargoyles to guard the
tree so you won’t be tempted.”
Everything was going well until Beelzebub was
feeling lonely and wanted companionship. Beelzebub asked the Devil "Is
there any way you could create someone to keep me company while I enjoy this
Hell you have created." "If this will make Hell better for you then
so be it. I will make a female as your companion. I will name her Mania, which
means Goddes of Hell. She will bare demon children for you both to bring up in
this Hell I have created for you. Now go into Hell and have yourselves a Hell
of a time," said the Devil.
dying around him and having to attend so many funerals. One night while he was
lying in bed watching TV and daydreaming. He said aloud "I wish there was
a place where there were no graves." So, he immediately got out of bed,
and sat down at the computer, and searched for hours then just as he was about
to give up he got lucky. There was a small island barely on the map that never
buried their dead. Dan just had to find out for himself if this was too good to
be true, so he got on the next flight the next morning.
Dan boarded the plane, put on his headphones, and
listened to Drac Von Stoller's audio books on the way to his destination. The
plane finally landed after thirteen hours, Dan removed his headphones and
looked out the window in the plane and said "Wow! This island is beautiful.
I can't wait to get off this plane, and meet these wonderful people, and ask
them why there are no graves anywhere on the island.
Dan stepped off the plane and was greeted by a tour
guide so he wouldn't be lost and have to find things on his own. Dan boarded a
bus for his tour of the island. The tour was very interesting and helpful, but
Dan still wanted to know what happens when their loved one dies. Dan tapped the
tour guide on the shoulder and said "Could I ask you a question."
"Sure!" replied the tour guide.
"If someone dies what happens to their

collision with an animal crossing the buses path.
Dan lost his train of thought so the tour guide
didn't get to answer his question.
years old and loved to watch his favorite TV show called Dark Shadows.
Michael's older brother David and his sister Susan would constantly sneak up
while Michael was watching Dark Shadows in the dark and scare him. Even though
his brother and sister did a good job scaring him, what really scared Michael
the most was the vampire Barnabas Collins. At night when Michael would get
under the covers he would shake like a leaf and slowly pull the covers over his
head. Michael's bedroom didn't have a door which scared the living daylights
out of him.
One stormy night when Michael was lying in bed
trying to sleep, he saw a black cat walk across his window just as the
lightening lit up the sky. Michael would jump out of bed and run down the hall
to his parent’s room to sleep in their bed until morning. Michael's parents
would tell him to stop watching Dark Shadows and maybe his fear of sleeping in
his bed alone would diminish.
Michael said, "I wouldn't be so scared if my
brother and sister would stop teasing me. Every now and then I would pull the
covers slowly down below my eyes just enough to turn my head and see my brother
walk across my doorway dressed in a cape and tell me he was coming to get me
soon. I would just pull the covers over my head and shake like a leaf and pray
The next night as Michael was lying in bed the caped
figure went passed his bedroom doorway and the figure said, "Soon, very
soon, you will join the dead." Michael said, "That's it and jumped
out of bed in terror and ran down the hall yelling for his parents. Michael
burst into his parents’ bedroom and dove in the covers shaking like a leaf.
Michael's father said, "What's the matter?
Michael replied, "He's back and this time he
said I would be joining the dead soon."
always dreamed of being an aspiring author that would make him the envy of
every horror fiction writer. Daniel was an avid horror reader that knew every
character in his books. Daniel loved to show off to his friends about how much
he knew about the characters he read about in his books. Daniel's life was
about to change very soon. Daniel liked to read his horror books down in the
family crypt. Daniel would say to himself "If I'm going to be a famous
author what better place for me to be inspired, the family crypt. Daniel would
spend hours down in the family crypt reading book after book until his eyes
were too heavy to see what he was reading.
One night when the wind was blowing and the trees were swaying back and forth
Daniel felt inspired and told his parent's that he wanted to spend the night in
the family crypt. Daniel's parent's weren't big horror fans, but if Daniel
feels that spending the night in the family crypt will inspire him to write,
then so be it. Daniel thanked his parent's for being so understanding. Daniel's
parent's packed him some food and gave him a lantern and sleeping pack so he
would be comfortable during the night. Daniel's father walked with him to the
family crypt so he could make sure Daniel was safe.
Evil was about to fall upon the Delany estate that
Mike and Samantha could never have imagined. It was Halloween and Samantha`s
contractions were unbearable so her husband rushed his pregnant wife to the
hospital to deliver their new bundle of joy.
Mike told the doctor and nurse to take great care of
his wife. The doctor and nurse reassured Mike they would take very good care of
her and not to worry. Mike waited patiently in the waiting room as the doctor
and nurse delivered their beautiful baby. After a few hours the baby finally
arrived and the doctor entered the waiting room and told Mike to come in the
room and see his new baby.
Mike entered and his wife was all smiles and said
"Honey, it`s a boy!"
"I think he looks like a Johnny. What do you
think?" asked his wife.
"Johnny sounds fine to me," replied Mike.
Mike was so excited and held his baby boy in his
arms as tears rolled down his cheeks and said "Darling, I think he likes
Mike stayed the night in his wife's room with their
new baby, but as they slept an unforeseen force came in their room that was about
to change their lives forever, when they both woke in the morning. Morning
came, and Samantha was discharged from the hospital, and time for their new
baby to be raised in their new home. It wasn't until after little Johnny turned
6 years of age that things around the Delany Estate turned deadly. The first
sign that Johnny had the mark of the beast was June 6. It was the 6th month,
6th day, and Johnny was 6. All the numbers represented 666.
Johnny's mother would be his first kill, as a
demonic voice told him his mother was cooking in the kitchen and that she must
beautiful woman you ever laid eyes on lived. Her hair was blonde and wavy with
eyes as blue as the sky. Her figure would make any man lose his breath. The
only thing wrong with this picture was she's a Witch. Her name is Sarah and an
evil Witch at that. Her mother had her out of wedlock. Sarah's mother kept her
pregnancy secret from her parent's until one day when her father opened her
bedroom door to scold her about something. Her father heard a baby's cry and said,
"Did I just hear a baby's cry?
"No! No! Father," cried Sarah's Mother.
Her father pushed her aside from her closet door.
Opened the door and shouted to the top of his lungs. "I want this baby out
of my house by morning and that's an order," said her father in an angry
voice. Sarah's Mother was only sixteen years old when she had Sarah. Having a
baby out of wedlock and especially at sixteen was a disgrace to the family.
The next morning Sarah's Mother carried her newborn
baby Sarah into town looking for a good home for her daughter. Sarah's Mother
came across this shack where a sweet old lady lives. She asked the old woman to
take her baby and love her as her own. The old lady accepted and asked her.
"Why are you giving up your baby? I'm just an old woman."
"My father will kill me and my baby if I don't
get rid of this problem. That's his exact words," replied Sarah with a
river of tears flowing down her cheeks.
Sarah's Mother turned away from the old lady weeping
uncontrollably. Sarah's Mother's heart was so heavy with guilt and daily
ridiculing from her father. She just couldn't handle the pain so she decided to
end her own life. Her father found her hanging from a rope in her closet. Her
father cut her down from the rope but it was too late she was already dead. Her
father felt responsible for her death so he went into his bedroom and pulled
open the top dresser drawer. Pulled out his revolver, pointed it at his head
and pulled the trigger blowing out his brains.
Later that evening, their bodies were discovered by
his wife. She screamed in agony and dropped to her knees. The only two people
she ever cared about were lying on the floor dead. She knelt down beside her
husband took the revolver from his hand and took one last look at her daughter
and husband and said "Please forgive me lord for what I'm about to
do." Then she put the barrel of the gun in her mouth. Pulled the trigger
and blew out her brains.
After the old lady heard the news about Sarah's
Mother, grandmother, and grandfather were all dead she felt even more compelled
to raise Sarah the best way she knew fit.
As Sarah matured into a grown woman, the old lady felt it was time for
Sarah to know the real truth about her biological family. The old lady said to
Sarah, "Come sit down at the table with me. I've got something very
important to tell you." Sarah calmly sat down at the table with a
concerned look on her face.
"What is it that you need to tell me, asked
"Well, I know you think I'm your Mother
but"....paused the old lady.
"But what asked Sarah with a confused look on
I'm not your real Mother. Your Mother died when she
was just sixteen years old," explained the old lady.
"How did she die, cried Sarah?”
echo in the wind of a past gone by. Horror Island Amusement Park had the
largest Ferrous Wheel, biggest roller coaster, and a beautiful view of the
As many years, weather, lack of funding and
dwindling attendance, the amusement park was shut down and boarded up. But that
wasn't the only reason for the decrease in attendance and the closing of the
park. Reports of poor maintenance on the rides were the cause of many deaths
and the major cause of shutting down the amusement park.
Thirty years later, there were reports of strange
things going on at the abandoned amusement park. At night the rides started up
on their own and the funny thing was, is that the park has been out of
operation for over thirty years without any power. The police were called out
to the park many times to investigate, but when they located the power supply all
the wires were ripped out of the fuse boxes. The police also reported hearing
laughter and voices as though the amusement park was still in full operation. A
sign was put on the front gate of the amusement park which read "No
trespassing! Any violators will be prosecuted."
A local ghost hunting group decided they would try
and solve the strange goings on at the Horror Island Amusement Park. They
called themselves "The Ghost Detectors Society." The Ghost Detectors
Society consisted of Darren, Karen and Steve. They all thought solving the
strange happenings would bring them fame, but they should have just stuck to
doing the small stuff. Darren picked an overcast day to set the mood of the
investigation. The fame struck ghost hunters met up at the amusement park at
the stroke of midnight. Everything was just as perfect as any ghost hunter
would have wanted it to be, overcast and windy. Everyone had all their ghost
hunting equipment, in their briefcases ready for the big event to unfold. As
they approached the gate, Darren said, "Everyone check your equipment to
make sure everything is operating properly. Karen chimed in, "Darren, do
you think we're going to really find any proof, or is this just a bunch of made
up stuff to bring curious ghost hunters like us to make fools out of us."
Darren exclaimed, "If we don't find any evidence we can at least say we
believe in what we are doing as ghost hunters is worth the effort. Not every
ghost hunter finds evidence, but when they do, it gives other ghost hunters
like ourselves, hope that there is unexplainable things that makes it worth
looking into. I don't care what anybody thinks of what we are doing is just a
waste of time, if we didn't believe, we all would be at home playing video
games and there would never be such things as ghost hunters. Thank goodness
there are believers like us willing to take the risk in tapping into the
unknown. I don't think any one of us would rather be at home playing video
games. Let’s just be happy. Our ghost hunting dreams has brought us closer
together as friends. I believe we were brought here for a reason and that
reason is to find ghosts. Steve, is your equipment ready? "Yes, all my
batteries are at full charge." "What about you Karen? Is your
equipment good to go?" "Yes, everything is fine. I sure hope we get
some good video footage."
These young ghost hunters are about to stir up
some ghost activity that should have stayed buried in the abandoned amusement
stolen money he used from the banks he robbed in another state. The mansion was
fully furnished with medieval torture devices kept down in the basement of the
mansion. He had a plan to pose as a doctor and lure doctors from the local
hospital and have parties at his mansion to show off his collection of medieval
torture devices to his guests. Sometimes he would put his guests in the devices
and take their pictures to put in his photo album.
One day he decided he would have an all night poker
game at his mansion on Halloween. Dr. Worthington called some of the doctors he
got acquainted with at the hospital to see if they were interested. He was able
to talk Dr. Brown, Dr. Stevens and Dr. Tarington, into playing. He told them to
dress in costumes, because it was Halloween.
Halloween finally arrived and Dr. Worthington went
all out on decorating the mansion with Halloween decorations. They all showed
up around 10pm. It was storming outside which only made Halloween night that
much more special. The only thing his doctor friends weren't aware of when they
showed up to play poker was Dr. Worthington was a sore loser and a thief. He
also wasn't a real doctor, and the mansion was bought from money he stole from
banks he robbed. Dr. Worthington was a smooth talker and a very likeable person
and everyone he came in contact with believed his lies.
Dr. Worthington welcomed his guests to his
mansion. When they all entered, the front door slammed and locked behind them.
It all started when these two friends Alicia and Mary Beth accepted a dare to see if the legend of Drac Von Stoller the prince of darkness was fiction or fantasy. The two girls thought it was a joke and laughed all the way out the door off to what they thought was a waste of time to a night of terror. There was one stipulation about the dare and if they didn’t abide by it they would be humiliated at school the next day. The stipulation was that they had to go at sundown and take nothing with them but themselves and a flashlight. Just to make sure the two girls arrived at their destination at sundown the other girls that made the dare drove them to their destination and spent the night in the car to await their arrival with the news of their findings.
Alicia and Mary Beth peered out their passenger windows in the back seat of the car and the fear of the unknown was starting to set in as sun was dropping rapidly off in the distance but they made a dare and they were not about to back out now and be they laughing stock of their classmates the next morning. The car arrived at the right moment as darkness filled the sky. Alicia and Mary Beth looked at each other with fear in their eyes but suppressed their fear and turned to the other girls in the front seat of the car and gave their best performance of courage and grabbed their flashlights and said lets go check out this fictitious legend and put it to rest once and for all and have the last laugh.
One of the girls in the car yelled out as Alicia and Mary Beth headed off into the woods, “You just might want to take a cross and a stake with you in case you see a vampire?” the girls in the car laughed hysterically as Alicia and Mary Beth entered the woods with the unknown just moments away. As Alicia and Mary Beth got deeper into the woods the wind was picking up and thunder could be heard off in the distance. These two girls were on a mission and just kept pressing forward and hurried in hopes this would all be over soon and they could get back home and never come back to these woods again whether or not it was all made up.As the two girls were walking along Alicia tripped over a rock and fell down in front of a crypt that was surrounded by thick brush. Mary Beth shined her flashlight on the crypt and said “Look! Alicia what is a crypt doing out here in the middle of nowhere?” “I don’t know? Why don’t we go back and get the girls and investigate a little further,” but before Alicia could get off the ground a tall dark figure emerged from the crypt and was standing in front of her and said “Are you looking for me?”
It all started when the Greys (Aliens) gave the humans interstellar travel, invisibility and mind control thinking this would be a good thing for the Interstellar Space Program, but just happened to get into the wrong hands and not long after this new breakthrough technology was in force Dan Majors who was in charge of the space program let power and greed get in the way which turned him into a killing machine. Dan started off with experimenting on his own employees but his little experiments were becoming less amusing which just angered him. Dan had been forewarned be the aliens that there could be unforeseen side effects being though humans don’t have the same genetic makeup as the aliens do even though the carry one of their traits in the DNA strand, but Dan didn’t care because his ego was on fire and he felt like he was a god having this new technology that the rest of the human race weren’t benefiting from at the moment.
and her friends Misty and Michelle decided to dig up a legend that should have
been just that, but we all know teenagers feel that they are invincible, and
nothing bad will happen to them.
Bad things only happen to
other people or do they?
Legend has it that an old
woman that lived in a cabin all alone in the woods that these girls are going
into was accused of witchcraft, but was never proven by the townspeople over a
hundred years ago. One of the daughters of the townspeople went missing in the
woods and was found dead on the steps of the old lady's cabin. When the old
lady arrived back to her cabin after gathering berries she was startled by an
angry mob of people with torches blazing and shouting "You murderer, You
Immediately, the old woman
was grabbed by the angry mob, and held down next to the dead girl’s body, and
one of the people from the mob said, "For what you have done we sentence
you to death by decapitation."
The old lady screamed out as
a river of tears flowed down her cheeks, but the angry mob was in no mood to
hear what the old lady had to say, all they wanted was swift justice.
Then one of the men carrying
an ax in his hand said, "I hope you rot in hell witch."
Then the ax came down and
the old woman's head rolled off the cabin steps. The old lady's decapitated
body was buried behind her cabin along with her head.
As night fell and the boys were exploring the cemetery they came across a tombstone with writing on it that read “whosoever reads these words will not see daylight.” Jimmy said “I’m not going to read that out loud and take a chance this isn’t a bunch of hogwash.” “What are you chicken?” Billy and Steven were making chicken noises and laughing hysterically at Jimmy.
“Ok, I’ll read the words and let’s get this straight I’m not chicken!” exclaimed Jimmy.
The queen immediately got up from her chair and raced over to ask her henchmen why they failed. The queen yelled out in anger “Do it again!” So, the henchmen examined the guillotine and got it ready again. The queen sat back down in her chair and said “No one leaves my execution with their heads still attached to their body.” The queen again yelled out “Off with his head!” Again the blade came down inches from his neck and stopped. This infuriated the queen and she would stop at nothing to get this man back at the chopping block.
The queen had to release the man because of the botched execution and scheduled the execution the next morning. The queen was laughed at by the spectators for failing at what she was famous for. Jokes were said around town about the queen’s botched execution, but the queen refused to let one botched execution break her spirit. The queen loved to look at her castle from a distance and see all the severed heads hanging over the castle walls from her executions this made her feel inferior over anyone.
that brought in so much money it made him the richest farmer in a town called
Painville. Sam never had to worry about money for many years, but Sam's money
making machine was about to run dry. Sam's ego and money got the best of him
one day. Sam was drinking with some of the local farmer's down at the local
tavern. Sam pulled out his wallet and started counting thousand dollar bills on
the table in front of them. The farmer's weren't impressed. If anything they
were jealous and had just about all the bragging they cared to hear. The
farmer's told Sam they had to get back home because it was getting late. Sam
said “Go right ahead, I'll just keep counting my money."
The farmer's piled into their trucks. Instead of
going home like they told Sam they were, they had something else on their
minds. One of the farmer's said, "I don't know about you guys, but I think
it's time we teach this egotistical money hungry farmer a lesson."
Everyone agreed so they headed down to the gas station and filled up their gas
cans and waited until after midnight before heading back to Sam's farm to set
his tobacco field on fire.
Well it looks like old man Lester got his wish because when October came around some of the townspeople decided to take it just a little bit too far and Lester suffered a massive heart attack and died, but just before his heart gave out he told his tormentors that every October for 31 days he would bring hell upon this town like they’ve never experienced before in their lives. The men that caused his death just stood there and laughed because they all knew Lester would never hurt a fly, but they were dead wrong.
The following Saturday was Halloween so Darren called his three friends on the phone and said he had a surprise that he would tell them about when they all arrived at the plantation tonight at midnight. Darren and his friends all piled in their cars with excitement on their faces barreling down the old country gravel road while a storm was brewing out in the distance. The closer they got to the plantation the more intense the storm got. Darren’s friends arrived about ten minutes before midnight, but Darren wanted to be the first one there to set up the Ouija board, so he had arrived fifteen minutes before his friends did. Darren placed the Ouija board on the dusty floor of the plantation with candles lit around the Ouija board.
Stacy, Tom and Julie finally arrived right on time just as the rain was pouring down on their cars. Everyone got their umbrellas out and dashed out of their vehicles up the steps to the plantation. Darren heard his friends cars pull up to the plantation, so he greeted them all at the front door to let them in for the big surprise.
Stacy, Tom and Julie shook off their umbrellas and Darren said “Come on in and I’ll show you my surprise for you all?” They all approached the study and went inside. There lying in the middle of the dusty floor with candles lit around it was the Ouija board. Darren said “Well, what do you all think?” Julie chimed in and said, “A Ouija board is just a dumb stupid game that don’t make ghosts appear. If I’d known in advance I would have just stayed home and watched TV.” Tom and Stacy agreed with Julie and they all headed to the front door of the plantation to leave, but the door locked as they approached it.Darren said “Humor me, and I’ll make a deal with you if this Ouija board can’t bring forth any ghosts, we’ll break out a window and leave?” Everyone agreed and came back into the study and sat around the Ouija board ready for a night they will never live to tell about. Question after question was asked to the Ouija board, but just as Stacy was ready to get up and leave, Julie chimed in and said “Let me ask it this question, “Was someone murdered in the plantation?”
Just beyond the hills of Eastondale stood an old
dilapidated mansion that was built in the 1860's. Legend has it that a railroad ran nearby the
old mansion and there was a gang of outlaws that held up the train and stole
$250,000 dollars worth of gold and hid it in the mansion. But before any of the
outlaws had a chance to tell where the gold was hidden, they were ambushed
inside the mansion by the U.S. Marshals, and only two of the brothers of one of
the gangs survived but would not tell where they hid the gold, so both brothers
were hanged, and to this day no one knows where the gold was hidden.
Then one day when Johnny West and two of his closest
friends decided they were going to find the gold that the outlaws hid in the
dilapidated mansion even if it took them all night to find the gold. Johnny
said to his two friends "get your flashlights and sleeping bags. It's
going to be a long night."
"Johnny, what makes you think we are the chosen
ones to find the gold, said David." "Have you already forgotten I'm
one of the descendants of one of the outlaws named Saddle Strap Watson that hid
the gold in the dilapidated mansion. “I'll bring Saddle Strap Watson's shovel
and pickaxe for good luck. All right everyone, let's meet down at the mansion
around 6 pm and we'll cover the grounds to see if the gold is somewhere on the
property before we go inside the mansion.
Johnny and the boys were checking the grounds of the mansion for any
signs of gold.
time sleeping at night because of what lies beyond his backyard in the woods.
Jimmy would be even more scared at night when it was storming outside. He would
get out of bed, and go over to the window, and be able to get a glimpse of the
cemetery because of the lightning. He could see the old wooden fence that was
barely standing, that surrounded the crypt, and a few broken tombstones, but
felt safe if he left the light on in his room, and the curtain closed.
One day when he was playing in his backyard he threw
a rock at the crypt and said, "Wake up you bunch of lazy dead people. All
you do is sleep all day and night. I wish someone would destroy the cemetery so
I wouldn’t have nightmares anymore." Then as he was heading out of the
woods he thought he seen a man coming out of the crypt, and could have sworn he
heard his name called. Jimmy didn't wait around to see if it was just his
imagination playing tricks on him. He ran as fast as he could to tell his
parents what he saw. Jimmy's mother and father laughed and his father said,
"There's nothing in that cemetery, but some old broken tombstones. If it
will make you feel any better, I'll go with you, and check it out, and you'll
see you're just imaging things."
"Thanks dad," replied Jimmy.
Jimmy and his father went back to the cemetery and
found nothing, but just as they were heading back to their house the creaky
door to the crypt opened, and Jimmy turned his head around, and said,
"Look father the door to the crypt is open, by the time his father turned
around to look the door shut. Jimmy's father said, "You need to stop this
Jimmy said, "I'm sorry, maybe you're right my

beautiful day for Kevin and Mary to look for their dream home. As they were
walking happily through a New England subdivision, Kevin stumbled upon a two
story mansion that took his breath away. Kevin tried to open the door, but it
was locked. Mary repeatedly told him that since the door was locked maybe they
"This place has to be about two-hundred years old,"
about to leave. Something was drawing him to this place. Kevin tried each
window and finally found one that was open and told Mary to follow him inside.
Mary refused since she thought they were trespassing. Kevin shrugged it off and
climbed through the window. Just as he climbed in, dark clouds rolled in and
rain came pouring down upon the house.
get inside before you get soaking wet,” Kevin urged.
When Mary heard the thunder and the lightning,
she didn't hesitate to enter the house. She grabbed hold of Kevin's arm,
clinging for dear life, as he pulled her fragile body through the window. The
place was dark and gloomy with an eerie presence about it.
stay right here. I'll find us some light and a blanket to keep you warm so we
can get a better look at the place."
able to find an old lantern to light their way through the rest of the
house. As Kevin and Mary looked the room
over Mary approached a painting on the wall. Mary said "Kevin come over
here and look at this." As Kevin approached the painting with the lantern
shining bright all of a sudden his eyes were fixated on the old Sea Captain’s
eyes in the painting. Then as he gazed deeper and deeper into the old Sea
Captain’s eyes, Kevin became in a trance like state and started acting
differently. He was not the same Kevin that he was just minutes before he
stared into the old Sea Captain’s eyes in the painting. Mary said "Look, There
is a name at the bottom of the painting that says Captain Bobby Jones with a
date from 1845-1901.
let's go explore the rest of the house said Kevin."
Dan and Brenda Stevens finally planned a night out without the kids, and were able to find a babysitter at the last minute. Brenda's friend Karen's daughter Susan happened to be free for the evening because her boyfriend was sick, so instead of being stuck home all night with nothing to do her mother suggested she babysit her friend Brenda's kids, and make a little extra money. Susan was happy to earn some easy money for a couple hours.
Susan got ready, and said goodbye to her mother, and drove on to the Steven's house for what she thought would a quiet night, and some easy babysitting money. Instead, it was going to be a night of terror.
Susan finally arrived at the Steven's house as the rain was pouring down.
Susan knocked on the Steven's door, and Dan and Brenda greeted her, and told her after she puts the kids to bed she could watch TV in their bedroom because the TV in the living room wasn't working.
Susan said, "No problem," and told them to have a good time, and not to worry about the kids she would take good care of them.
The Steven's ran out in the pouring rain to their car, and drove to a restaurant that her husband picked out.
Susan played a few games with the kids and said, "Well, it's eight o'clock and time for bed. Susan read a bedtime story to the kids and said goodnight to them, turned out their bedroom light then got a soda out of the refrigerator, and went back upstairs to watch TV until the Steven's returned from their dinner date.
Susan sat down and turned on the remote to the TV, and flipped through the channels, and popped the top of her soda can, and just as she touched her lips on the soda can to take a drink she said to herself, "That's odd what is a creepy looking clown statue doing in their bedroom. It doesn't even look like it belongs here."
The Clown Statue written by Drac Von Stoller has been transformed into a short film that will be released during the Halloween season in 2015.
searching many months for their dream home out in the country because the city
life just wasn't their cup of tea. Then just as they were about to give up
there was a sign next to a gravel road that said "Sudden death in the family
caused our beautiful home to be put up for sale, please don't pass up this
great deal of a lifetime."
"John turn here maybe
this is what we've been searching for," replied his wife.
"Are you sure, this
gravel road looks long and it's beginning to storm, why don't we just go home
and try in the morning when the weather is better," said her tired
"We're already here, we
may as well check it out and get out of this rain, besides the rain will
probably let up by the time we're through looking at the house," Mary
asked in a reassuring tone of voice.
"Fine, you win, let's
check it out," said her frustrated husband.
John drove on up the muddy
gravel road as the storm got more intense and could barely see the house
because of the rain, his car inched closer to the front of the house.
John and Mary's son chimed in
and said "Mom! Dad! Look over there?"
"Look at what?"
said his mother.
"There's a man walking
in the front door with an ax," said Billy in a frightened voice.
"I don't see anyone
Billy, you must be imagining things," replied his mother.
"I'm not imagining
things, I saw a man entering the house," said Billy frustratingly.
John put the car in park, and
everyone got out of the car, and ran to the front door under the awning to keep
out of the rain.
"John, look there's an
envelope sticking out of the door," exclaimed his wife.
She opened the envelope and
read the letter inside, "John the letter says enclosed inside this
envelope is the keys to the house and a contract. Just sign the contract and
place a certified check in the amount of $25,000 in the self-addressed
sufficiently stamped envelope and this beautiful home is yours."
"John, there has to be
something wrong with this house," exclaimed his wife.
"Let's get in out of the
rain," said Mary in an anxious voice.
The Blevins family opened the
front door, and went inside, and Mary said "The furniture is still here, I
wonder why they didn't take it with them?"
"Maybe, the death in the
family was too traumatic and they'll be back to pick it up at the end of the
week," explained John.
John placed the envelope on
the table, but Mary was too excited about seeing the house to read on and see
that the family left suddenly and had no intentions of coming back for anything
in the house. The rest of the letter said p.s. the house is haunted.
After the Blevins family were
through checking out the house and they were back in their car Billy looked at
the front door through the passenger window and said "Mom! Dad! There's
that man again waiving an ax in the air and holding a woman's head in his
gang that he was excited about joining called the Demon Nights gang. There was
only one thing that would prove he was worthy of being a part of the Demon
Nights gang and Darren who was head of the gang would tell him.
"Jimmy you know it's not an easy thing joining
our gang," said Darren.
"I know, but I want to be somebody and I'm not
afraid of any challenge, so come on tell me what it is you want me to do?"
"Ok, but there is no backing out once I tell
you and if you try to back out the only thing you'll be getting is a bullet in
the back," explained Darren.
"Don't worry I'm up for anything," replied
"Here's what I want you to do. Follow me
outside," explained Darren.
Jimmy and Darrin went outside to Darren's back yard.
"See that car over there," said Darren.
"Yes! I see it," replied Jimmy.
"Get inside and let me know what you
think?" asked Darren.
Jimmy opened the driver’s side door and stepped in
and said "Wow! This is a real beauty," exclaimed Jimmy.
Darren put his hand on the top off the car and bent
over and said "This is where you come in. Your job is to drive this car
down Willow road without any headlights on, and when the first car flashes their headlights at you, you will
turn your car around and chase them down running their car off the road. Then
you will pull your car off the side of the road and pull out the shot gun that
is in the back seat of the car and go up to their vehicle and finish them off
with a shot to the head just to make sure they are dead. Then you will be
accepted into the Demon Nights gang."
Henry Bates had a very reclusive life, until one day the constant nagging from his wife made him snap, and things started dying. All Henry wanted was to enjoy his retirement like any normal hard working man, but his wife had other plans and retirement wasn't one of those.
One day when Henry was relaxing by the fire, his wife Marjorie came up to him and said "Henry, I thought I told you to take out the trash, sweep the floor and clean out the attic. This isn't a hotel and just because you have retired I'm not going to watch you lay around while things need to be done."
Marjorie went on and on for hours as Henry would get up from his recliner and do as she commanded, but as Henry tried to please his wife, the nagging still persisted.
Henry said "That's it!"
"That's what?" asked Marjorie.
Henry shouted, "You'll see!”
"Henry, get back here this instant," yelled Marjorie.
Henry went into the garage and grabbed a shovel. As Marjorie was pointing her finger and calling him names, Henry swung the shovel, hitting her upside the head and Marjorie hit the floor. Henry knew if she got up off the floor she would have him arrested for assault and battery and attempted murder, so Henry said to himself, "What am I going to do?" as he was pacing back and forth in the kitchen. Henry decided to finish her off. So Henry gave Marjorie another hard whack upside the head. Then he knelt down to feel her pulse, but there was none. Henry said "I'm glad I finally stood up to that battle axe and put her in her place." Henry picked up his dead wife’s body and placed her in a chair in the attic and locked the door behind him. Henry was whistling as he was walking down the stairs back to his recliner to take a nap, as the warm fire calmed his nerves.
As the night wore on Henry started hallucinating about his wife coming down from the attic and doing him in. Henry's blurry eyes opened and visions of his wife with a shovel in her hands coming at him ready to do him in. Henry immediately broke out in a cold sweat and jumped out of the recliner and ran up the stairs to see if his dead wife was in the attic slumped over in the chair. Sure enough Marjorie's dead body was slumped over in the chair and Henry started laughing and said "It was just a dream."
Henry kissed his wife on the forehead and told her he would come back and check on her later and bring her something to eat. Henry told Marjorie that killing her was the best thing for their marriage.
the Clanton brothers were considered some of the roughest outlaws that the west
has ever known. It is said that one night they set up camp in the mountains
after a stage coach robbery and as they were counting the stolen money around
the campfire they were ambushed by another gang of outlaws known as the Smith
and Wesson brothers. Just as one of the
Smith and Wesson brothers was about to shoot the last Clanton brother in the
head he said "You can go ahead and pull the trigger and end my life just
the way you did my two brothers, but we'll be back for you and your two
brothers mark my words."
The Smith and Wesson brothers all just laughed and
one of them said as he laughed and put his cigarette out on his head "You
ain’t coming back from the dead. You want to know why? I'll tell you why. I'm
going to cut each one of your heads off to make sure. What do you think of
that?" as he spit on him.
"Just get it over with or are you too chicken
to pull the trigger, because you know what I'm saying is true." replied a
He replied "Shut up! Then the Smith and Wesson
brother took a swig of Tequila and broke the bottle over the Clanton brothers
head. Then he shot him in the head as he laughed.
The Smith and Wesson brother cut each one of their
heads off and buried the bodies.
Then the Smith and Wesson brothers got on their
horses and rode back to town with the Clanton brother's stolen stage coach
money ready for some poker.
As the brother's got off their horses and swung open
the saloon doors the place got real quite because not many of the townspeople
dare cross the Smith and Wesson brothers path. Cause if they did they wouldn't
get just one six shooter they would get three six shooters.
The brother's approached one of the tables where six
men were playing poker and one of the Smith and Wesson brothers said
"Looks like there's no place for us to sit."
Then the brother’s just laughed and pulled out their
six shooters and shot the three men dead at the poker table. The brother’s
kicked the dead men out of their chairs and sat down at the table and fired
their six shooters at the ceiling and said "Bring us a bottle of
All the cards were dealt to all the players as
the night wore on. The brother’s stolen money was dwindling away. Then all of a
sudden three horses came galloping down the mountain and headed straight to the
saloon where the Smith and Wesson brothers were playing poker. The three
figures stepped off their horses and swung open the saloon doors and the Smith
and Wesson brothers jumped out of their chairs in shock.
great place for fishing. Tom was a very friendly man that liked to give tours in
his cave to anyone that fished or hunted on his farm. But Tom's kindness would
eventually do him in.
One day, like any other day, Tom approached two men
that were drinking and fishing in his pond. Tom asked the men, "Would you
like to take a tour in my cave just over the hill?"
The two men knew Tom was loaded and heard that he
kept his money in his overalls. The men said, "Sure we would love to take
a tour of your cave."
The two men followed Tom over the hill to the cave,
but they had their own plans and could care less about touring his cave. But
the men knew this was a perfect opportunity to overpower Tom and steal his
money. As Tom and the men got deeper into the cave Tom said, "Be careful
and follow behind me because there is a bottomless pit that we are about to
approach at your left.”
Just as they got to the pit the two men grabbed Tom
and punched him repeatedly and asked him to hand over his money.
