* [[{{CruelAndUnusualDeath}} Cruel And Unusual Deaths]]: In just one horrifying example alone, one lady is revealed to have died via neck snapping, ''having her neck rotated in a full circle, 360 degree angle motion.'' And that's not even scratching the ''surface'' of this game.

The story, which borrows quite heavily from ''Film/TheShining'' as well as the works of EdgarAllanPoe, is as follows: Famous writer Adrienne Delaney and her photographer husband Don Gordon move into a large, fancy mansion, built and previously owned by an eccentric magician by the name of Zoltan "Carno" Carnovasch. While snooping around her new home, Adrienne discovers a mysterious box in a sealed-off chamber in Carno's study and, to make a short story even shorter, [[CuriosityIsACrapshoot unwittingly unleashes]] [[SealedEvilInACan something mysterious and ominous]] that later [[DemonicPossession turns out to be a demon.]]

* DrugsAreBad: After Don becomes possessed but before Adrienne has discovered this, she finds out that a bottle of absinthe in the foyer's wet bar is starting to decrease in amount day by day; likewise, Carno's cigarette holder is suddenly missing one. This ''could'' also count as MistakenForJunkie, but Adrienne never calls him on any possible drinking or drug problems.

* PendulumOfDeath: In the past, Marie conspired with her lover, Gaston, to kill her Bluebeard husband Carno by sabotaging the equipment for his most infamous and dangerous escapology trick, in which Carno dons a burning hood and escapes from bonds on a throne equipped with an overhead pendulous axe. The sabotage leaves Carno horribly burned and disfigured, but he survives and viciously attacks Marie and Gaston. After killing Marie by beheading her with the same pendulous throne, Carno is killed by Gaston just before he succumbs to his own wounds. In the present, Don (who is possessed by a demon) captures Adrienne and straps her into the pendulous throne, but she distracts him long enough to free herself from the throne and trigger the pendulum, which impales and kills Don.

** In a less room-y example, in some chapters, Adrienne can find her laptop opened now and then with insane text littering the screen. In the next-to-last chapter, it's completely destroyed.

* SecretUndergroundPassage: The Carnovasch Estate is riddled with hidden passageways accessible through depressable panels in the walls, but they don't start working until Carno's specter informs Adrienne about them. They're the only way to reach some locations, like the family crypt, and the final chapter can involve a merry chase throughout nearly all of them depending on your decisions.
