The Underworld Awakening
At the height of the 1919 mental health epidemic, Westport’s local hospital was at full capacity with mental patients. Belladonna Strange was one of the most challenging among them. A Satan-worshiper, she believed she was all-powerful even though nurses and other patients thought her to be nothing more than disturbed.
That changed early on the morning of September 27, 1919, when she opened a portal to the underworld. Strange began screaming satanic chants, and nurses quickly swarmed her room. Each one who tried to approach the woman was either killed or possessed by the demons she had summoned from the torture- and death-filled underworld.
