You meet a man who claims he's a Jinn (another creation) and he begs you for a place to stay in exchange for power. He promises he'll make you rich if you take care of him. The catch is that you can never see his face because if you do, your heart won't be able to take the fear. You take care of the man, but you must be careful not to look at his face while doing so.

2: Clowning Around

Your mom hires a babysitter but every night they put a mask on and sing you a song. You aren't sure why but then you come to realize that whenever anyone puts on that mask and sing a song, they're inviting other demons and ghosts into your house. As weeks pass, you see the ghost and beg your mother to fire the babysitter. Of course, she doesn't believe you...

3: The Photographer

Every time you take photos of your friend, she comes out blurry in the pictures. Eventually, you find out she died many years ago. To help her spirit be free, you must help her find her murdered body or remains.
