Sophie stares beneath her at the chipped marble counter, while her bloodshot eyes widen with horror. A disfigured stranger glaring back from her reflection, grins sinisterly. A sudden musty stench begins to fill the eerie kitchen atmosphere while a sickly hand-like claw reaches out from under the marble. Sophie, now trembling with fear, watches as the hand moves hypnotically closer to her gaze. Trying to take her eyes off the decaying limb, she found herself stuck in place with her eyes glued to the ghastly reflection below her. Then, with one swift slash, Sophie’s eyes were left dangling from the chandelier.
