Laughing Jack is an evil and terrifying monster capable of both breaking children’s minds and killing them. His victims’ souls are trapped in an abandoned fairground where demonic song “Pop Goes the Weasel” constantly plays for eternity – unlike most horror villains he doesn’t target 13 year old or older children but exclusively younger kids. Additionally Laughing Jack uses an incredible magical box that he uses to torture them before kidnapping and murdering them, leaving them to experience eternal torment!
