The Haunted House:

This beautiful old estate from the past sits, rotting away. Once a glorious Victorian mansion full of life and laughter, it now rests solemnly in the dark shadows which only the most haunted house can cast.

Beware “The Madam” who was the original owner in 1883. Unable to ever say good-bye to her long lost loved ones, she somehow remains and lingers, anxiously and desperately awaiting guests.  Alas, she is not the only ghost that occupies this haunted house.

The second owners, General and Lady Hawthorn, and their son Timmy, are still here as well, but not in human form.  Timmy still thinks he is playing hide and seek, even though the youngster died accidentally a century ago. He refuses to stop darting about, lurking in nooks and cubby holes. The General bides his eternal time in his treasured library, deep in contemplative thought, obsessively reading passages on moldy pages in books…passages that haunt his memory of Timmy.  Lady Hawthorn does love to share a good cup of tea, though it tastes of stale, decayed dust, with a phantom friend. She simply refuses to accept that she is no longer of this world.

Patrick and Anne Murphy were the last owners of the once beautiful Victorian house.  Tragically, they also fell under the ominous curse gripping their haunted mansion. After only a month living in their seemingly charming old home, their 13 year old son Gabriel, a real jokester, very suddenly and mysteriously died. They say he choked on a mouthful of bubble gum, but Gabriel hated sweets. Someone, or some thing else forced him to stop breathing. 

Patrick and Anne could not accept his death. Patrick fell into a deep depression while Anne howled loudly and constantly in fitful mourning. Both parents’ state of mind grew worse with every passing day.  Three months to the day Gabriel died, a burglar entered the home and turned violent, murdering Patrick and Anne on the spot.

The burglar escaped in great haste, taking anything valuable he could carry on his way out, but he unknowingly left behind the most cherished item.  That item was poor young Sissy. She was spared by hiding under the bed, but left all alone.  Just 7 years old, she witnessed it all. Sissy somehow survived for a while, though she was twisted by confused rage and loneliness. She spent endless days roaming the halls, crying out for vengeance for her lost family. How long she survived is unknown. She missed her family terribly, but somehow found solace in a special connection she created with her long dead brother, Gabriel. How she summoned Gabriel’s spirit is her secret forever. It is said they both remain in this now God forsaken haunted manor, watching over and protecting each other from anyone who dares invade their family home.

Haunted Mine: Miner’S Revenge

According to legend, a haunted mine was born out of greed and desperation in 1896. Over a century later, the miner’s revenge remains unfulfilled.

By no fault of their own, two brave and loyal miners were forever entombed deep underground in a cramped, dank space filled with little else but stale air. It began with a mine owner who constantly craved more gold.  Obsessed with digging for the gold, the owner forced his two best men to burrow deeper and deeper under ground. The solid bedrock underneath would only yield to blasts that had to grow larger and more powerful than the one before. The miners work was endless because the mine owner was certain they’d hit a new mother load with each passing blast. Digging down ever deeper made it ever more dangerous to get back above ground each day. Eventually, the poor miners were forced to stay under ground to live in a squalid camp, and were ordered to not resurface until they had the mother load of gold in tow.

Driven by his manic desire for gold, one fateful day, the mine owner delivered a massive load of explosives down the mine. He forced the men to use more TNT than they knew was safe. Sure enough, they died that day, blown to bits, leaving behind their tattered supplies and little else but their exhausted souls in the sealed mine shaft. Their souls remained restless, yearning to return above ground to reunite again with the loved ones who were so violently torn away on that horrible day. They remain trapped today, unaware their presence has turned their under ground home into a haunted mine forever.

You can hear their spirits desperately swing pick axes against the unforgiving rock. Slamming and clanging against dense, solid cave walls, the picks never make progress in their quest to break out. Their futile effort only fuels a burning desire  to settle the score and extract revenge on the mine owner. But their rage blinds them of their true target. So, anyone venturing into this haunted mine is subject to their wrath, and anyone who dares enter their captive space will surely confront these two unsettled souls and become unwitting victims of the miner’s revenge.

Casa Blood:

‘Casa Blood’ also known as House of Blood. That’s the only way to describe what Granny’s once cozy cottage home has become. Thanks to nothing less than murderous mayhem.

It all started on a typical October weekend. The whole family stopped by for one of Granny’s special Sunday dinners. But trouble had been brewing among the family members for a long time. This night, it created what can only be described as a Halloween horror night when the family went mad.

A force of unimaginable evil was somehow unleashed in the house that night. A bloodthirsty, sinister rage surfaced with speed and violence. No family member could escape this savage force and its vicious grip on their minds. Nothing was important to them in that moment, except for the sight, smell and taste of blood. Swift and brutal action is all the family could understand. And that action was acted out upon each other.

First, Granny’s daughter Alice shot cousin Ernie in the head. She thought he was stealing Granny’s social security checks. She hated him for that. Once the last drops of warm blood ran out of what was left of his split skull, she stuffed his blood soaked body into the fridge.

Then, it was Big Bobby’s turn. He was Granny’s beloved son. Down on his luck, he recently lost his job and family. Bobby needed desperately to move back home with Granny. But, Granny said “No, Sonny. Fend for yourself!” Bobby lost his mind with this news, quickly slitting Granny’s throat, and splattering her blood across the walls of the room.

Young Betsy, Alice’s 16 year old daughter, went completely insane as she witnessed the murders. Alice was suddenly overcome with guilt. Watching the family carnage unfold was more than she could handle. She quickly swallowed a fatal dose of poison by mixing it into her food.

Big Bobby’s son, once one of the ‘good boys’, suddenly morphed into a most rotten apple. He gleefully watched how his father dispatched of Granny and reveled in the trails of her blood running along the floor. He instantly became obsessed with gore and guts. Now he spends all his time acting out in the sickest of ways!

Come meet Granny and her family. They are still in Casa Blood and can’t wait for you to share in their blood soaked scenes of carnage. Scenes that will forever haunt your warmest family memories!
