Return To Horrorland

3 ThrillsWhy would Lizzy, Luke and Clay return to Horrorland? That's what they were asking themselves. Lizzy, Luke and Clay's favorite TV show was THE STRANGE REPORT. It was about two people, Derek and Margo Strange, who surveyed and did reports on things that seem strange. Like a guy who tried to eat a car, or a woman who has 100 cats and gives each one of them a tongue bath each day. There was even a kid that had some green goop that he said was monster blood and that he and his hamster, Cuddles, grew huge by eating it. The reason why Lizzy, Luke and Clay like the show is because it is so unreal and funny. They think people do it just to get on TV. While they were watching an episode someone arrived at their door. They answered it and it was Margo and Derek! They want to take the three kids to Horrorland. They think Horrorland is up to something and want to expose it to the public. They found them by reading the patron list and they wanted someone who had been there before. Their parents said no because Horror land was too frightening. They convinced her to let them go but she couldn't come along with them. They were to be a regular family with Derek and Margo as the kid's parents so they can record the things that happen. Their mom didn't like the idea of that. But they told her that they would be completely safe and watched over at all times and offered her ten thousand dollars. She finally agreed to it. Soon Lizzy, Luke and Clay were on their way to Horror land... again. They came to the place looking like a normal family. They saw a horror, which are the people who work at Horrorland. Horrors look like monsters but Lizzy, Luke and Clay know they really are. Once they saw the horrors they started to doubt coming to Horrorland. One of the horrors saw their camcorder and told them NO CAMERAS. He threw the camcorder to the ground and stomped on it. Derek and Margo told them they knew that was going to happen so they brought along some miniature cameras to record the stuff. They continued on their way. They decided to start at a pyramid looking building called MUMMY WALK. They went inside and started going through rooms, although it was too dark to see. Then in one room they were in they heard hissing sounds. They felt slithering things and then a dim light came on. They saw that there were over a dozen snakes in the room, in a snake pit. Luke laughed and walked over to the snake pit thinking it was fake but one his and lurched forward at him. Lizzy thought that it had bit him but it didn't. It went up his pants, through his shirt and up to his shoulder. Luke was frozen in fear. They ran away as fast as they can and found a room with many coffins laying in a row. Then they heard some sounds from the coffins. They were saying, "Help me... let me out". It took them a while to figure out it was a recording then Luke found an open coffin and went into it for fun but then the coffin closed on him, he couldn't get out and didn't have much air to breath... Will Luke survive? Will they all survive Horrorland? Will they expose it to everyone? To find out read RETURN TO HORRORLAND!

3 ThrillsHeidi's parents died in a car crash. Heidi is being sent to live her uncle Dr. Palmer Jekyll in a small town. She got on a bus to go there. When she got there, there was nobody there to pick her up. She went over to the phone boot and called the operator and asked for her uncle's number but they said he was unlisted. Then a kid, about her age, came up to her and asked her what she was doing. She said that she was looking for her uncle because he forgot to pick her up. He said his name was Aaron. She asked him what he was doing there and he said that his mom works on the other side of the bus station. She asked him what people do for fun and he told her some neat stuff. Then he asked her who her uncle was. When she told him he gasped. He told her not to go there. He told her that there was a beast that attacks the town at night. People see him coming from the mansion Dr. Jekyll lived in and think the Dr. Jekyll is the beast. Heidi laughed because she thought Aaron was just trying to scare her. Heidi knew the story he was telling. Her uncle Jekyll probably got teased about it a lot when he was a kid. The story was that Dr. Jekyll was a scientist and drank one of his chemicals and turned into a beast named Mr. Hyde. Heidi told Aaron that just because her uncle was a scientist and his name is Dr. Jekyll doesn't mean he is a horrible beast. She asked for directions to the house and he told her them. The house was a mansion on a hill overlooking the town. When she got to the house she knocked on the door and her cousin Marianna answered. Marianna was her uncle Jekyll's daughter she was the same age as Marianna. Marianna screamed at Heidi. She said that she has to go, to run away. She told Heidi to get away from the house. Then the maid Sylvia came and welcomed Heidi into the house. Heidi was confused about Marianna. Was she trying to warn Heidi? Or was she trying to play a joke on her? Marianna quietly showed Heidi her room. Heidi expected her room to be dark and depressing like the rest of the house. The house looks like an old horror movie. Heidi was surprised because her room was bright and happy. Heidi went to her uncle's lab to say hi to him. She heard animal cries from inside. She opened the door and gasped. It was only a rodent he was working with. She said hi. He welcomed her. She asked him about the story Aaron told her and he said it wasn't true and freaked out. That night when she slept in her new room there was screams and sirens out her window. She looked out and saw fire engines and police cars, flames and people screaming. She went downstairs to talk to her uncle. He wasn't in his lab or room. He wasn't anywhere to be found. Then he came into the house with his clothes all ripped up. He looked a ripped up. He saw Heidi and asked what she was doing up. She asked why he looked all ripped up and he told her it was because he went for a walk and fell. She asked about the things going on in the town. He said he heard it but didn't see what was going on. Heidi didn't believe him because she knew the truth. She knew where her uncle was and why. It was just like Aaron said. He drank a chemical in his lab and turns into a beast. He was a beast and every night he attacked the town...

They like to be scared so why would they have a problem with going to their Uncle John's house for the night? Uncle John always tells them scary stories.

But their parents are forcing them to go to their uncle's house anyway. They got to their uncle's house and he popped popcorn and got snack cakes and cider so they could sit down and he could tell them a scary story.

He had been following the trail until he accidentally got off it. He got lost and kept wandering. He realized he lost his way but he saw what looked like the light from a fire. He wandered towards it and found a house. He went up and knocked on the door. He told the woman who answered the door he was lost and she invited him in. She gave him soup and helped him get cleaned up. As he left she told him not to look up at the full moon so he doesn't catch full moon fever. He sat back down because he wanted to hear what the lady was talking. She said that full moon fever was like a disease. It started out like the flu and you start to transform into a beast creature like a werewolf. She says that on Halloween if you stare at the full moon at the right time you will catch it. When you have it you have to live away from all humans because you get so angry you can't control yourself and so hungry you will eat humans. She told him that the only cure for it was to look up at the right moment on the next full moon. He left and started to walk down the path laughing at the story.

Jake didn't think he heard him right because he thought he said trelth grade. He thought that he must have been hearing things. Than the teacher called on him to finish the equation written on the board. He looked up at the foreign writing on the bored and told the teacher he never learned how to do it. The teacher said that he was starting with something easy and he called on someone else who went up and solved it right away and she too wrote in that strange foreign language. Jake felt really weird and he didn't understand what was going on. He didn't hear what the teacher was saying so when the kids got up to do an assignment he didn't know what to do. Since all the kids were going to the computers in the back of the room he went to the last open computer and sat in front of it. Jake looked to the kid next to him and asked him what they were supposed to do. He told him that they were supposed to type up what they did that summer. Jake looked down at the keyboard to see the keys and he gasped. The keys were all in the strange foreign language that was on the board. The teacher came over to ask what was wrong and Jake blurted out that he didn't know what to write. The teacher asked him if he had any vacations over the summer and asked him where he was from while pointing at a map. Jake looked at the map and didn't recognize it.

There were a whole bunch of oceans and the seven continents he recognized were gone and in there place were unfamiliar continents. The bell rang and the teacher told them to go to lunch. Jake went outside the classroom and realized the school looked different. The rooms were in different places and the halls looked different. He went to the lunchroom and looked around to find that none of his friends were there. He didn't recognize anyone. Jake opened his lunch bag and took out his sandwich and started to eat it when he looked around and realized that everyone was eating their food... through their armpits. Jake thought it was disgusting and then tried to eat his sandwich again but then he heard a girl say, "Oooh, gross! Were you really going to put that sandwich in your mouth?" Jake didn't understand but he decided to say he was just joking. He looked around and saw a girl looking at him. She must have noticed he was different. Jake panicked. He picked up his lunch and started running. He ran right out of the school and into the woods. He kept running because he heard footsteps behind him. He ducked into a bush to hide. When he got out of the bush because he thought the coast was clear he noticed there were these hairy bubble-like bugs all over him. He plucked them off and ran running right into the girl that was looking at him in the lunchroom. She said she noticed he was different and that she was different too. She showed him that she had no food hole in her armpit. She asked him if he knew where they were from and they both realized that they couldn't remember their last names much less where they are or where they are from...

The Ghost In The Mirror

3 ThrillsJason is a big wimp. He is always so easy to scare. His older sister, Claudia, constantly plays jokes on him to scare him and it works every time. She once put a dead rat under his bead and told him there was a rat living underneath his bead and when he looked underneath she pulled a string to move it. Another time she put spaghetti in his bed and when he went to bed he screamed because he thought it was a bunch of worms. Claudia is also constantly betting him things. She bet him that he couldn't go a day without glancing in a mirror and he couldn't do it. Then she followed him up to his room and started making fun of his furniture. His dad doesn't have a job right now so they don't have much money and Jason still has all of his baby blue furniture from when he was a baby. Jason's mom told Claudia to stop making fun of him just because they can't afford new furniture and told her to be nicer to him. A few days later Jason and his best friend, Fred were tossing a football. Actually Fred was chasing the football because he wasn't really good at football or any sport even if it was a video game. Fred had to go home and Jason's parents had called him into the house for some type of a surprise. When he got into his room he saw a brand new wooden dresser and a large mirror. They were great and his baby blue furniture was gone. That night he came into his room and he found a crinkled up yellow note in front of his mirror. He read what it said, "Beware. Bring this into your house... And you bring death." At fist he thought it was from the mirror but then he realized who it was. It was Claudia, trying to scare him again. He called Claudia into his room and told her he knew it was her. But she had a serious look on her face and said it wasn't hers. Then she told him it was from the mirror and that the mirror was haunted. And he believed her. She laughed and told him he was too easy and left to her room. After she left Jason looked at the note. It couldn't be her note because she always admits when she plays a joke and it wasn't in her handwriting. He went downstairs to show his dad the note and she called Claudia down. Claudia got in trouble for writing the note although Jason still didn't think it was her. That night Fred came over to Jason's house and they played video games but Fred kept looking at the mirror. Then he had a frightened look on his face. Jason paused the game and asked Fred what was wrong and he said he thought he saw something move inside the mirror. Jason told him nothing could move inside the mirror. The next day he was passing a soccer ball with Fred and Fred was missing the ball as usual when they heard a loud barking or yipping from inside the house. Jason didn't think it was Buzzy their dog because he was a small part terrier that never really barked unless he was really frightened. Jason went inside to find Buzzy. He followed Buzzy up to his room where Buzzy started barking a lot towards the mirror. He was afraid of the mirror or something. Jason calmed the dog. That night he told his parents about the dog barking at the mirror and they jus thought it was funny because dogs were always afraid of mirrors. Then during dinner they heard something growling. Jason went up to his room and found Buzzy there with a hunched back and growling at the mirror. Jason had never seen him like that before. He went down to try to calm the dog but then the dog jumped up and attacked him. He bit his neck and started attacking him viciously. Finally Jason's dad came in and took the dog out.
