According to both the text file and the Requiem info pack:
- A nightmare of frantic combat. You remember violent flashes of naked fear ... the red-hot barrels of your shotgun burning your hands ... you remember laughing in the carnage.
In this very small map, you just need to get the red skull key sitting in the northeast corner of the map, and then open the red door to the west to reach the exit. There are plenty of monsters present though.
Other points of interest
- In the room immediately following the first door, there is a lion face in the northwest corner. Push it to find security armor. (sector 9)

Inspiration and development
This level was originally meant to be MAP27 of the sixth part of Demonfear, Demonfear 6: The Heart, which was intended to come out in 1996 but was never released. Windsor would eventually create an entirely different "Demonfear 6" in 1999, and he compiled the whole series into one megawad a year later.
- Capellan: Useless Trivia Factoid: maps 25 and 26 in Requiem are actually the wrong way around. What ended up as map25 "Chaos Zone" was actually intended to be map26 "Excoriation", and vice versa. ( at Doomworld. 2013-04-09. Retrieved 2013-04-10.)
