“The Inneas House, a boarding home for “The Hurt, Helpless, and Homeless” (as their famous hand scrawled sign indicates) and a medical facility only known as “The Sanitarium” (supposedly aimed at the mental and physical recovery of their patients) make up the complex commonly referred to as “Sinister”.

Although little is known about the establishment, several instances over the past few decades have cast a dark shadow and caused mass speculation regarding the businesses true nature.”
