Synopsis for "Out of His Head!"Edit

As Stanley bent over the boiling pot of stew in the camp, Alex Melton crept up behind him with a meat cleaver and let him have it in the head! But Stanley just crouched, staring at the man who had just killed him before falling over. Now Alex left camp, knowing the rich mine was all his, and went back to his car, dumped all of his belongings into the river, certain to convince anyone coming upon Stanley's body back at camp thinking he'd been killed by a maniac. He slipped back into his apartment, unseen, and gazed out the window to see Stanley standing outside with the cleaver in his head.....he screamed, then the visage disappeared. A neighbor asked him if he was OK, and he said so and to bring him breakfast....then headed into his bedroom to dress in his pajamas, and only to see Stanley again. Refusing to look, he answered a knock at the door and breakfast arrived.....with Stanley standing behind his friend! Setting the meal down, the friend left....but everywhere Alex looked, his former law partner was still there. Unable to stand it any longer, Alex reached into a kitchen drawer and pulled out an icepick and jabbed it into both his eyes. His friend came in after hearing the screams and found Alex and took him to the doctor. Surgery was done, and when the bandages were removed later, Alex blurringly looked up to see the figure of someone bending over him....a figure with something gleaming on his head. Alex figured it was Stanley again and ran to the window and jumped out to his death. The doctor looked out the window....and all he could say was that the man must be mad!
