Shadybrook Rest Home and Sanitarium or just Shadybrook was a mental hospital that was famous for it being constantly overrun by the inmates and it is the main location of the Psycho Scareapy series. The asylum is also sometimes called Shady Brook.
It should be noted that the Psycho Scareapy franchise portrays many different Shadybrook buildings in different time periods.
The Problems[edit | edit source]
It has a history of suicide, murder, human experimentation, and riots. The first major riot in Shadybrook's history was in 2003, when an inmate stabbed a guard with a fork. On October 13, 2004, Shadybrook admitted a man named Jeffery Dietze, who had gone insane following his discovery of the gruesome secret of the Horror in Wax facility he had recently inherited. In 2006, their first notable crazy arrived:
John "Jack" Schmidt, a murderer, also convicted of arson and terror. Ironically, the facility was the place of his birth along with his brother, Eddie Schmidt in the late 1800's. He cooked up a riot that not only enabled his escape, but also heavily damaged the hospital's reputation. The only house in the series that didn't actually take place in the hospital was Psychoscareapy: Home for the Holidays. In 2007, an entire bus full of inmates escaped on Christmas Eve. Over 25 people were killed by the madmen. The hospital was eventually shut down due to it's dysmal security record, although there are rumors that the abandoned building is haunted. In 2010, the Legendary Truth: Awakening team investigated the run down hospital. Apparitions caught on tape were sent to the sight to be analyzed.
Before Shadybrook was shut down, it housed a man named Floyd Mercer who faked his own insanity just to get away from the carnivorous succubus Lady Luck. However Lady Luck did manage to find him so Floyd hung himself to escape from her.
At some point, during the nineteenth century, a group of killers known as the Body Collectors invaded Shadybrook and started killing the staff and insane patients to turn them into artwork and tools. Some of them escaped and fled into the streets.
According to Dr. Jimmy, Dr. Mary Agana may have gotten patients from Shadybrook in order to "treat" a patient named Diane Bennett.
