Added DiffLines:

*IDontLikeTheSoundOfThatPlace: Any place called "Gore Orphanage" is probably not a safe place for children. Though, see UrbanLegends for the source of the name; a 'gore' is a perfectly innocent map feature.

Added DiffLines:

* DeadMansChest: [[spoiler:Buddy]] is stashed in the same windowseat that [[spoiler:he hid his comics in]].

Added DiffLines:

* UrbanLegends: The urban legend of Gore Orphanage surrounds a ruin in Vermillon, OH where some claim you can still hear the cries of the children. The orphanage has never actually existed. The ruin was a former mansion that burned down on Gore Orphanage Road, a street named after the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gore_%28segment%29 gore map feature]] and the existence of an orphanage along the road.

''Gore Orphanage'' is a 2015 horror film by Cody Knotts and Emily Lapisardi based off of the urban legend of [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gore_Orphanage the titular orphanage]]. Nellie, a young girl in the 1930s, is orphaned and sent off to Gore Orphanage. There, Mrs. Pryor rules with an iron fist, pocketing the money allocated for the care of the orphans, aided by Ernst, the German handyman who speaks little but is rumored to have special "playtime" with certain girls in the orphanage, and Miss Lillian, the sympathetic teacher whom all of the children look up to. Nellie befriends Buddy and Esther, but soon, the harsh life of the orphanage becomes even worse when children start to die.
