The film crew pulled up outside the location
at that moment felt chilled
no words spoken the fear choked them
it was said to be haunted
the asylum certainly had a sordid history
to investigators was a mystery!
As a location this was perfect for their movie
a scary paranormal tale
soon they were setting up for the first shot
directors and actors ready
to film the first scene within its sordid walls
starting after the night falls!
Though no longer used it was safe to work in
from the start noises were heard
even in the late spring air it was freezing
none of them felt at ease
ready for the take the cameras rolled
each shivered with the cold!
At the end of the nights long schedule
the footage was reviewed
there were strange shadows and sounds
on the soundtrack!
voices screams and shouting was heard
what in this place stirred?
As filming proceeded they became petrified
blurry shapes came into shot
unknown footsteps added to sound effects
an arc light crashed to the floor
in the end everybody refused to go inside
told to go back this they defied!
They could not abandon this major project
so studio sets were erected
to finish this big budget ghost adventure
with unexplained extra effects
what had plagued them came along as well
how they could not tell!
At the studios an exorcism was carried out
real phenomena none had any doubt!
In the decaying asylum the activity increased!
