(Dr. Albert Caine)
Original Icon - Halloween Horror Nights XII: Islands of Fear (2002)
Dr. Albert Caine was once a respected surgeon who later in life became the Caretaker of the Shady Oaks Cemetery. Caine and his family used the deceased as trial subjects in unnatural and bizarre experiments. Caine even used the corpses as playthings in elaborate funeral parlor parties.
Two teenagers who decided to take a walk through the cemetery telling ghost stories came across the terrible sight of one of Albert's gruesome parties. Walking past the gravestones and various monuments they heard music carried on the wind. Following the sound they came across the Shady Oaks Cemetery which is where they witnessed the Caine family dancing with the rotted remains of decaying corpses.
Word of the grisly goings-on quickly spread and the authorities launched a massive investigation. Before the police investigation could be completed an angry mob comprised of the relatives of the deceased used in the Caretaker's experiments took matters into their own hands.
Is it possible that Albert Caine and his family could have escaped the fire from many years ago?
As the Shady Oaks Cemetery is reopened an intrepid research team will enter to discover it's terrible secrets. You, the guests of Halloween Horror Nights: Islands Of Fear, have been volunteered as members of that team.

After the police investigation had been completed they discovered that the Caretaker and his family had desecrated more than two thousand graves. They found an intricate series of tunnels underneath the ground that ran for miles and miles.
