Synopsis for "The Dark Dungeon"

Seven years ago, after the death of his mother, Jerome moves in with his elderly Uncle Horation. Horatio keeps mastiffs half-starved in the dungeon so that he can press a button to release them in the event thieves enter his house. Terrified of the dogs, Jerome is hesitant to stay, until Horatio informs him that his millions will go to Jerome once he passes.

For five years, Jerome waits on his uncle hand and foot, until he grows tired of waiting and decides to hurry nature along. Placing a trip wire in front of Horatio's bedroom door, Horatio tumbles down the stairs to the first floor. Somehow, Horatio survives, but breaks both legs, confining him to a wheelchair. For another two years, Jerome waits on his uncle, until he has the idea to use the dogs to get rid of his uncle. Jerome drugs Horatio and wheels his wheelchair into their enclosure, where the dogs tear Horatio to shreads.

A feew weeks later, a cloaked man arrives and invites himself to stay. Jerome relents, as the man somehow knows of Horatio's death. One night, Jerome falls down the stairs, and breaks his legs, much like his uncle. The cloaked man tells Jerome he'll handle things, as alerting the town doctor would draw questions about Jerome. Confined to a wheelchair, the cloaked man begins taking care of Jerome.

Jerome beings demanding the man leave, but he polietly refuses and hands Jerome his nightly drink. Jerome takes a drink, and falls into a dream-like state. He awakes in the dungeon, surrounded by his late uncle's dogs. Jerome completely pieces together that the man was in fact Horatio's ghost. However, the conclusion is in vain, as he is quickly devoured by the hounds.

In the present day, Jerome's spirit is still wandering through Habersham Hall, waiting on his Uncle Horatio.
