A LAST LOOK INSIDE THE DOOMED HOUSE OF MYSTERY.
But incredibly, just about a week prior to the blazing destruction of the supposed supernatural portal, this Blog was again contacted by the brave but anonymous Urban Explorer who had previously dared to enter the possibly cursed corridors of the infamous Demon Hotel (see "Inside Demon Hotel"). What you are about to see are the last known pictures from inside the ominous ruins of the partially demolished structure, and what you are about to read is a first hand account, written by the Urban Explorer himself, of the final frightening expedition inside the dark, disquieting walls of DEMON HOTEL.
It was a fresh Spring day and things seemed quiet. I had my camera on me as I was taking so pics of the Forks with a friend. As my photo bud and I parted ways, I came to that dreaded hub of hell on Hargrave. I looked sheepishly over and it seemed…quiet, dormant. As I mentioned above, I felt empowered to finally complete my urban documentation of this old…no doubt soon to be gone building. Yeah, I know…Urban Explorers are braver than they are smart!
I ran. Ran like a thief in the night…like a cat from a dog. All I can remember of my hurried escape was blasting through the alley behind Demon Hotel ( I initially got in through the side, the front is gated) and seeing the back door of the building slowly opening into darkness. It would seem the evil is now aimlessly spilling out from the building as it slowly gets dismantled.
That is it! No more fucking Demon Hotel…no more brushes with the beyond…I was compelled by the Urban Explorer in me to stupidly return, but self preservation will prevent me from ever going back! Once again friends…you have been warned! Me…I will just have to learn to cope with the nightmarish thoughts that will consume my sleep for the next year. Thanks Demon Hotel.
Thus ends the Urban Explorer's final physical encounter within the bowels of the possibly para-normally possessed husk of the notorious Demon Hotel, but the psychological scars may be long lasting. Throughout this Blog we have endeavoured to warn both the foolish and the brave from tempting the dark forces that may have been contained within the bleak ruins of the abandoned Hargrave building. While we may be titillated, entertained and most certainly enlightened by such paranormal investigations, could the human cost be too great?
EPILOGUE: soon after the fire five teenagers were reportedly charged with arson causing the destruction of the abandoned apartment building at 44 Hargrave Street. But why did they do it? Was it merely an act of malicious vandalism, or could the experiences of the Urban Explorer indicate that the old building contained dark forces ready to prey on the unwary? And could this essence of evil remain locked into the grounds where once stood that nexus of the supernatural known as DEMON HOTEL.
