Hellscream Haunted House
Excerpts from a reporter’s bloodstained journal found near Dr. Von Helton’s Laboratory at Hellscream Haunted House:
There is no escape. Not now at least. If I get out of here, I expect a HUGE raise from my editor. What was he thinking sending me out here?! As if it wasn’t dangerous enough with all the reports of Dr. Von Helton’s “experiments”…a train crash? Really? And a circus train at that! Wild animals running amuck! Yeah, that’s a great place for an intern. Partly my fault I guess. I’ve loved the Slaughter Brother’s Circus since I was fourteen. The lights, the colors, the roar of the crow and, of course, the Slaughter Brothers themselves. Jack Slaughter with his dirty sleazy mustache and…James. A more charismatic and handsome man there never was. I loved their duality. It was mesmerizing. Ugh…I can’t believe I let the fourteen year old girl in my head talk me into this!
It’s been hours now. Will the screaming ever stop??? I’ve checked the door at least a hundred times, but it’s no use. It must have locked from the outside when I climbed in here. I can still hear the sirens and see the lights of emergency services through the cracks in the metal. Why is no one coming? I dare not scream for help. I can still see that thing that chased me in here when I close my eyes.
I had to take my shoes off. There was this green sludge oozing from that truck that hit the train. Guess I must have stepped in it. It boiled the soles right off! I loved those shoes. To make matters worse it looks like it burned my heel. Wonderful.
I cannot believe what I just saw. There are no words graphic enough to describe it, but I must try. I saw another local reporter. I can’t remember her name; the pretty one with the blonde hair and perfect dimples. God I hated her…but I wouldn’t have wished this. She was attacked and taken away…by those things. Some looked like animals…others like circus staff, but different somehow. Then I saw…him; across the field, through the twisted metal, carnage, and fire. It was Jack Slaughter. He survived. He was dragging something. At first I thought it was a ball and chain, but it wasn’t. As I squinted I could plainly see it was a spine…with a head. I vomited. It was James. His face was as handsome as ever, but now still and silent. It looked like Jack was barking orders to the creature, but I couldn’t make them out. What the hell is going on! I’ve never been an easily frightened person. I’ve seen my fair share of the gruesome side of humanity…but this?! This is truly terrifying. I can’t stop shaking.
There is an awful smell in here…aside from my vomit. Lost my phone when I was running or I’d use the flashlight. I crawled deeper into the boxcar to investigate; my foot hurt too badly to walk. Dead bodies. Lots of them. One half hanging from a hole in the boxcar roof…or was it the side? I couldn’t tell as it had obviously tumbled several times. It was up. Too high to reach and climb out. That’s all that mattered I guess. That body was the only identifiable one. The nametag on his lab coat read Dr. Von Helton. At least one good thing came out of all this. That murderous bastard won’t hurt anyone else. Great headline…if I get to report it.
The smell wasn’t the bodies. It was my foot. The decay is up to my calf now. God this hurts, like it’s on fire! I poured some mouthwash on it from my purse. It stings horribly but maybe the alcohol will help to disinfect it. Either way…it smells better. Minty.
The scratching and snarling started a few moments ago. I heard my phone ring outside. Maybe it was the sound or the smell of my mouthwash, but regardless, something knows I’m here. No one is coming to rescue me. Only one choice now. I’m going to use the last of my strength to stack the bodies and try and climb out of this mess. The thought of climbing on corpses disgusts me, but there is no alternative. I’d say, “wish me luck” but if someone is reading this, I’m probably dead. So one last note: Mike…you know who you are. You don’t get my dog. Screw you Mike.
