Halloween Homicide at the Chamber of Screams Haunted House
The cast members of the Chamber of Screams Haunted House worked hard this Halloween season, scaring the town's people.

As you know, the Chamber of Screams shuts down briefly each night so the employees can straighten up their haunted scenes. When you first started working there, you heard a rumor that the management probably does this so the line of customers outside will build up and appear twice as busy and much more popular. Regardless of the reason for this break, you look forward to the upcoming treat during your next shift at work. This is where your story begins.
