The batteries in my flashlight are dying. Soon the light will be gone, and they’ll come for me. I can hear them, moving in the walls. Click click, scratch scratch, I can hear their claws. Everything has claws at night. Claws and teeth that rip and tear...
I still have the knife I stole from the kitchen. It’s dull now, but I’ll stab out their eyes. If they have eyes. Oh god, I can hear them. The light is growing dimmer. I should have found a room, but I didn’t have time! They were after me, so close. I felt their teeth. I feel them now, phantom pricks of pain against my legs. They know. They know I plan on escaping. I’ve planned so long, so very long. I have to get out. I’ll go mad if I don’t get out, truly mad. As mad as the doctor’s tell me that I am. They’re the mad ones, they who run this hellish place with monsters spawned of the deepest of hells, they who cage human beings like lab rats! They’re depraved, and they must be stopped!
They’re getting closer. They can smell me, I know they can. They’re in the walls, outside the door, slinking along the hallways to find me. I must be quiet. Can they hear the sound of my pen on paper? My breathing? My heart? It feels as though it’s going to burst.
The doctors took her away today. I swear I heard her screaming as I passed by the stairs to basement. It sounded like her, but it wasn’t a human scream.
They’ll come for me next. I know they will! They’ve been watching me. They write in their little charts and smile and nod and all the while I know they’re planning to
Oh god! I can hear them! Right outside the door! There’s no more light, it’s dead. Oh god, it’s dead and I’m alone and the others were all taken. Dear god forgive me, I tried! I tried. I tried to protect them, I tried to escape! Please, god, forgive me. Though I walk through the valley of the
No time! They’ve broken down the door! Oh god, the smell! Their eyes! Oh god, their eyes, their eyes in the darkness! Please, let it be…
By day, Landel’s Institute seems to be an ordinary Mental Health Facility. The doctors and staff are friendly and helpful, seemingly devoted to the care and rehabilitation of the many patients that reside within. Days are tightly scheduled, with plenty of safe and mundane activities for patients - such as Arts and Crafts and frequent trips to the Music Room. There's just one little catch.
Each patient knows they’re sane, knows that they simply woke up in a strange white room one morning, captive against their will. They know everything they remember is real, and that the world and life they know is certainly not a delusion - as the doctors attempt to tell them.
Nighttime assures patients that all is not well in Landel's. At night, everything changes. Creatures with a taste for flesh wander the dark corridors, and even the staff turn into something ghastly. The very building itself becomes deadly. The bright and cheerful mental hospital turns into something worse than any mortal nightmare. Armed only with a flashlight (found under each pillow), and a small assortment of other items, patients must use their wits and skills to fight, survive, and if they’re lucky, perhaps even escape…
