Information needed.

Evil Bong

Ivan is one of the victim's that are trapped within the Bong World (possibly hallucination).

Ravenwolf Towers

Ivan books himself to stay at Ravenwolf Towers, which is an old hotel that has now turned into apartments that accommodates oddball characters and there is a special area on the top floor for the rich elite. Ivan uses handmade goggles which give him the ability to see events that transpired in the hotel in the past. He reveals that a lot of murders have taken place there prior to him arriving. The other occupants at the hotel are Mr. Mascaro - a curious man that is always in clown makeup, Dr. Lorca - an eccentric collector of oddities, his room is full of obscure artifacts, including a living Kaiser doll and an ancient and powerful Egyptian machine. There is also a mysterious and seductive maiden that has the power to stay young forever and her rich family that have members which are inbred, cannibalistic mutants and are conducting strange and violent experiments on the hotel residents. Ivan meets Jake, the new assistant manager - who is very oblivious to the strange goings-on and Ivan tells him that he suspects that there is vampires in the hotel and explores the hotel collecting evidence.

Jake quickly stops being a skeptic when he tries on the goggles and is able to see spiritual 'scorch marks' of a man that was recently cannibalized in the hotel and he joins Ivan in the quest to prevent the evil. Ivan discovers that what he is dealing with is not actually vampires but a force that he has never witnessed before and he starts to feel unprepared. Lorca, who is hired by the family, grows suspicious of Ivan and hires a private detective to dig up information on him and the two of them discover that Ivan Ivanov is an alias and not his real name and that he has no ties to the United States at all and therefore they cannot harvest anymore information on him. The detective later breaks into his apartment and takes photographs of his vampire hunting gear but one of the cannibalistic creatures ambushes and tries to kill her, but after learning that she works for Lorca it lets her go. Ivan then shows Jake photographs of an old silent movie actress that had vanished decades prior and he hatches a theory that she had mated with a demonic entity and spawned the rich family that are currently in the hotel. It is unknown what happened after this.
