From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Chimera House is an urban legend which consists of the usual young teens going out for a night on the town, only to stumble across a large, worn down building about 3-5 stories tall where they are offered to go on a "ride" that consists of "real" horrors inside. In the story, the teens are asked to pay a certain amount of money (anywhere from 20-100 dollars) and told they will receive a portion back for every floor they complete. The twist is that no one has ever completed the house, and the ones who tried never came back out.

Rumors state about the various horrors inside the house, from poisonous/deadly animals, to deformed humans, to the supernatural.

The legend is usually set in the south or midwest since there are a large amount of open and unknown areas in those parts. Of course, the Chimera House has never been proven to exist, though some people still search ferverently for it.

Media similarities

  • The movie "House of 1000 Corpses" by singer/film maker Rob Zombie bears a slight resemblance to the Chimera House legend, where a group of teens encounter the bizarre and freakish in a run-down house.
  • Diamond Dogs, a short story by Alastair Reynolds, is about a group of people trying to get an alien artifact kept at the top of a tower protected by deathtraps.
