Anyone know what this means?

Doing a bit of research lead me to believe it's Latin, and a quick translation comes out to "anyone is that quae came"

Not very revealing.

Anyone have any idea why this is here above the bloody door after Nightmare run #2?

I put it into Wikipedia on Google and got a Wiki entry in Latin of the book of Job. The words "Quis est iste" started out the sentence. After that, I googled "venit" and found it to be a third-person usage meaning "to come." Thus, "Who is this coming?"

Apparently, it's also the title of a chorus piece:

I found this as the translation:

"Who is this who is coming?"

My girlfriend found a reference to it as part of a ghost story. Unfortunately, my internet is flubby right now, so I can't find it again.

But yeah, that translation is pretty much right on.
