In the dark of night, you'll see a white glow, almost shiny, and two hands will rise from a dark stain on the floor ... followed by two arms ... a head ... then a neck. The humanlike shape, radiating a soft, pale, pulsing light, will reach out to you ... beckoning. DO NOT FOLLOW ... or you may be trapped forever in the unknown horror of this haunted room!
