Synopsis:
As Edward was driving through a backroad in Louisiana, his car overheated and he was forced to stop and seek out help. He saw a stately mansion there is the bayous, but when he entered, he found it burnt out inside. Yet a lovely lass named Eloise welcomed him and began to tell him of the home's history [as he was a magazine writer feigning interest once he saw her]. She told him her entire family had died in the fire, then showed him around. Edward encountered several near-fatal accidents while on this journey, but came under her spell and discovered to his horror she wanted him dead in order to join her, since she was already dead. He fled the home....but the longing became too great and he headed back to the mansion, where she was waiting for him!

Synopsis:
The three actors traveling through misty countryside suddenly found themselves at the stage entrance of the mysterious Woltam Theatre, where a rehearsal of Hamlet was in progress, which was stopped when a vital prop turned up missing. Winton stepped forward to offer his acting services and was accepted, leaving the other two jealous.....so jealous that Blye snuck into the dressing room and killed his partner. Unfortunately for him, the director now chose Nash for the role, and again Blye killed his other partner and hid the body. The director then had no choice but to allow Blye the role, and as he prepared for it, an old stage woman showed the man something interesting: a sack full of human heads! Frightened, he ran to his dressing room. Suddenly several actors entered and asked if he was ready for his part in the play. When he asked what the role was, he was refered to the scene where Hamlet holds up the skull of Yorick, and they told him that someone had kept stealing the skulls, so...........as Blye screams, the scene lastly shifts to the sign above the building's entrance: Woltham Insane Asylum for Actors!
