Indexer Notes

House of Monsters
The grim castle that Paul Dorner inherited was a fiend's dream that combined he forces from beyond with science into horror unequalled. Ye-ech! This is a bloody tale.

The Witch and the Werewolf
Our hero didn't believe in witches or werewolves. He was only a businessman, calling on a client who lived in a haunted house at midnight. Ye-ech! You read it.

The Spirits
A cursed house was that the townsfolk called it. Yet, the artist thought it an excellent place to live...that is, until THEY came. Comem step into my house -- if you dare.

Horror Club
They came in search of happiness, romance, and even marriage, only to learn the club was really the yawning pit of hell. Wan'na join?

Better Off Dead
At the peak of his career the physicians forced him to retire because of a bum ticker. A startling, horrifying tale of a man who was called incurable.

The Unknown
What happens when Lila Simmons, a student of the occult, pries secrets from the dreaded 'black book' of the ancient dead cults. Yikes! Lila! S-stop! Come back! "Gulp!" Too late.

Witches' Haunt
The swamp is a place where slimy, crawling things devour each other! Humans who dare enter, do not come back! Why? Find out in an intriguing, creepy horror that shocks!
