The Devils toy box is a small box that is six-sided that is made from equally-sized mirror panels for form a cube. The theory is Mirrors have long been considered gateways into other dimensions and its believed that you can trap a spirit within this box and keep it sealed.
But where does it come from?
Well “The Devil’s Toy Box” is an urban legend that savvier horror fans will recognize as the inspiration for the infamous Lament Configuration from Clive Barker’s seminal Hellraiser series.
However, reports came into paranormal sites after this film, reporting that there was a life-size human Devils toy box haunted attraction based in Louisiana that popped up for the Halloween period in 2014.
The attraction was called Farmer Grave’s Haunted Orchard and the windowless shack called The Devil’s Toy Box was a small room composed of large wall-sized mirrors.
It was said that Farmer Grave’s closed less than a week after opening that year because of the numerous people who had to be hospitalized after going inside the Devil’s Toy Box attraction. Apparently, no one could last longer than five minutes inside the room. There was even a large timer set up beside the building that showed the current occupant’s length of stay under a second clock displaying the longest recorded time up to that point, which maxed out at four minutes and thirty-seven seconds before the attraction finally closed. The man who managed to last that long (Roger Heltz, age 52, father of three) had been reduced to a wide-eyed mute. To this day, he still hasn’t said a word about his experience.
Many believe such a shack if someone stands too long in this mirrored shack, looking at nothing but themselves, they will not only go insane but they will also open up a pathway to Hell. This pathway allows the devil to enter our world and steal their soul. Some believe it goes even further than that and that the devil will take your flesh as well.
