Framing SequenceEdit

In an old run down movie theater a group of zombies sit watching a horror movie double feature. The movies they are watching are the two Hellboy stories.

Sullivan's RewardEdit

In 1960 Hellboy travels to Kansas to meet with Mr. Sullivan. Sullivan explains that he was a drunk until a stranger appeared and gave him the deed to a house. He moved there and learned that by putting a person in a certain room, the house would kill the person and pay him gold. He man tricks Hellboy and locks him in the room. In the room Hellboy sees the spirit of the creator of the house and it attacks. Outside, Sullivan is paid for bringing Hellboy, as a giant pile of gold crushes him to death. Hellboy escapes and destroys the remains of the builder. The house crumbles.

The House of SebekEdit

In a university museum, a man claiming to be a pharaoh manages to bring mummies back to life. Hellboy easily stops the mummies and the man flees. He enters a temple to Sebek that was reconstructed in the museum. The man prays to Horus. This angers Sebek and the statue of the crocodile god comes to life and eats the man.
