The roar of the crowd and the weird vapor-like figure pushes a chamion boxer into "Death's Corner."

Soul-searing fear invades the minds of those who are trapped by the supernatural where the unknown dweells.

The Tomb
The ghost of the cruel and bloodthirsty Nero waited for centuries to unleash his ancient curse for those caught in his web of hate.
