Don’t go into the basement, whatever you do.
Don’t get me wrong, it’s not haunted. I haven’t filled the freezer with corpses, nor have I converted it into some sort of twisted Nazi sex-dungeon, it’s a perfectly ordinary basement.
The light doesn’t really work, it kind of flickers on and off, and the stairs squeak, but other than that, it’s an unfinished basement like any other unfinished basement anywhere else in this neighborhood.
However: I will lock you in there if you go, and I don’t promise to let you out quickly. So, for your own good, don’t do it.
