Sir Henry's Moonlight Massacre 2023Deep in the heart of the forsaken town of Boggy Meadow, a creaky old house stands as a grim reminder of the horrors that unfolded within its walls. As the story goes, a sheep farmer named Thomas, had been driven to the brink of despair by three consecutive failed sheep markets. A mysterious figure named Beatrice, disguised as an old hag soon appeared and promised him endless fortune. Beatrice lured Thomas into a sinister pact, mentioning a dreaded “curse of the moon” in passing.

Initially, it seemed as though fortune smiled upon Thomas and his loved ones. But with the arrival of the first full moon, a malevolent transformation consumed Thomas—a primal beast, a wolf driven by insatiable rage. In a frenzy of bloodlust, Thomas unleashed unspeakable horrors upon his own family, staining the walls of their once-happy home with a crimson trail. As the cycles of the full moon persisted, the curse unleashed its wrath upon the unsuspecting town of Boggy Meadow. The residents, one by one, became victims of Thomas’s monstrous fury.

Has Beatrice at last destroyed the town of Boggy Meadow?


Sir Henry's Wicked Waters 2023The manic witch Griselda haunts the desolate swamp on the outskirts of town. Desperate for more power, she is in search of the lost staff of Beatrice hidden in the depths of the swamp.

Legend has it that if found and a secret ritual performed, it would bring back from the dead the most powerful witch known, Beatrice. Griselda, armed with an ancient scroll, finds the staff and performs the dark ritual, which requires human sacrifice and her own blood.

Beatrice returns to her full strength and vows to terrorize those who entrapped her. She opens the whole swamp and raises all the dead bodies hidden underneath the bog. Ancient beings of death now roam the land, wreaking havoc on the town. But this is only the beginning, will you survive the witching season?


Sir Henry's Tales of the Dead 2023The tragedy of Sir Henry is a story one will not soon forget. The great Showman and his band of freaks were once the most famous, beloved troupe of their day. Following the brutal murder of Sir Henry’s Bride, they fell from grace due to the rumors and hearsay.

Many moons have passed, and a new legend has emerged. It is said that on Halloween night in his abandoned mansion, the phantom Sir Henry and his misfits come back from the grave to hunt the bride’s killer.

Trick, or treat? Find out for yourself as you venture into Sir Henry’s former home. But beware…it’s best not to be caught with blood on your hands, even if it is part of your costume – they cannot tell the difference and are mad with revenge.



Sir Henry's Hayride 2023Take a ride deep into woods and discover the ancient legends of Halloween. But watch out for the evil witch Beatrice as she looks to curse any trespassers to her woods.
