This story takes place in a typical American neighborhood, when some new neighbors come to live in the house next to Ray Peterson. These new people are really strange; nobody has ever seen them, their house is a real mess, and during the night you can hear weird noises from their basement. The only thing they know is their name: Klopeks. One day Walter (an old man of the neighborhood) suddenly disappears and everyone starts to suspect the Klopeks... Written by

The Klopek's house address is 669. When ray and Art use the heavy door knocker on their door the 9 slides down changing the Klopek's house number to 666 which is foretold in the King James Holy Bible. Revelations 13:18 "Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six." A score is defined as 20 so threescore is 3 times 20. So the number of the Beast, some define this to mean the number of Satan or the devil, is 666. See more
