Synopsis for "The House of Shadows!"
When a local haunted house becomes the subject of a television program trying to debunk it as a hoax, the camera crew attracts the attention of a crowd of spectators. Among them is Doctor Strange. Believing the house to be truly haunted, Strange enters the building and confronts its mystical attacks. He forces the entity in the house to reveal itself to him and tell him its purpose. He learns that it is from another time-continuum and that it has come to observe humanity. With the threat neutralized, Strange exits the house and uses a spell to make it return from where it came. The spectators gathered then flee from Doctor Strange in fear.
