Starvation Heights

Inspired by real-life events at Starvation Heights.
 
1903-Outside Seattle. Two sisters arrive at the Tramwell Sanitarium to regain their health, instead, they experience horrors at the hands of the owners, Tanith and Telford.
 
Current Day- A reality T.V. crew comes to investigate reports of paranormal activities at the haunted sanitarium where patients starved to death.
 
Experiencing ghostly sightings, the investigators call in the main crew.
 
The ghosts try to warn the crew of danger, but an existing human cult in league with creatures from the underworld lure the guests one by one to their deaths. The cult has opened a portal to hell and is using the dismembered parts of the victims to rebuild Tanith as a bride for Satan.
 
In a last-ditch effort to stop the cult, the ghosts guide one of the last surviving members to a hidden room where women have been kept prisoner generation after generation for breeding purposes. Finally released, the women attack the cult and kill its members and destroy the partially re-formed body of Tanith.

The two surviving ghost hunters think the ordeal is over, but a mysterious woman tells them that this was only one of many cults trying to achieve the same results. She asks them to help track the cults down before they can destroy humanity.

She lives in a hundred year old house that she grew up in. Her semi-small town holds an interesting mix of resident hillbillies, yuppies and Navy Seals.

She blows glass beads with a blow torch, (which relieves a lot of stress and people don't bother you).
