It sounds like the plot from a straight-to-DVD budget horror flick.
A day after moving into a new studio apartment, a curious tenant decided to investigate a mysterious hatch in the floorleading to a secret ‘dungeon’.
A little ‘freaked out’ by the space his estate agent failed to mention, the occupier sensibly called up a friend before investigating the creepy cellar in more detail.
‘Yesterday I moved into my studio apartment,’ the mystery man explained on Reddit.

‘It’s in an old English monastery conversion, dates back to the 19th century I reckon, and now has about 30 apartments.
‘I have a tiny room on the ground floor. Got a great deal on the rent, and didn’t realise how much value I got until I moved in and found an area worthy of any movie-grade exploration.’
He says he finds it ‘a little very scary living above it alone’, but added the space would be great for a ‘home cinema or dungeon party’. Internet users have speculated it could be an old furnace room, while others suggested using it to freak out his friends Bed, or crypt, it’ll make a good seat for a potential home cinema or dungeon party Another added: ‘Don’t worry, you’re not alone.’ An old furnace room?
