Legend of Sinister House
Sinister House is a journey into the world of deranged serial killer Otis Hodge. During a time period spanning the 1920's to 1950's, Mr. Hodge turned his small farm into a haven for murderers, sadists, occultists and other deranged individuals.
Legend of Tomahawk Trail
Long before Sinister Acres was home to notorious serial killer Otis Hodge, it was home to a much older and ancient evil. Early pioneers in the region and native tribes would tell stories of a race of human-like creatures that lived in the forest and ate the flesh of those unlucky enough to wander into their lair.
