Darkness Rising (2017) Script

I shall count to ten. One, two...

...three, four, five...

...six, seven, eight, nine, ten. Ready or not, here I come!


Sarah?

I can't see you, dear!

I don't like it when you go too far!

Sarah?

Sarah?

Sarah!

Sarah?

Sarah!

Sarah, why didn't you answer me?

Look at me when I'm talking to you.

Dear, sweet...


This is it. Are you sure?

Yeah.

55 Ballahack Road.

I don't know, guys. We're still kind of out in the visible. Don't you think?

I don't think anyone really sees this house anymore.

What do you mean?

I mean, they don't want to, so they don't.

I feel like a teenager.

It's kind of romantic, right? Breaking into my house?

Oh, yeah. It's really romantic.

Look, I know this is weird but this is my last chance, you know?

This place isn't gonna be here tomorrow. Just remember, Maddy, it's just a house.

Okay? You're more than what's happened to you.

I know. I just... I really appreciate you being here.

Hey, are we doing this or what, guys?

Yeah. A little B & E. Why not?

Let's do this. Wait. Why did we bring her, again?

Hey, listen. I needed both of you here, okay? This is important to me.

Ready, Freddy? After you, Peggy Sue.

Oh, you guys are so cute. Don't be jealous.

So when you do this, do you just smash a window or what do you normally do?

You borrow one Prius... Okay, you guys.

Give me this. Give me this. Here.

Why don't you put that philosophy major to work?

Come on, put your back into it. Come on, babe, you got this.

Shit!

It's not happening.

I don't know. Maybe you could go through the window.

Why don't you go through the window, Izzy?

Why don't you go through the window? You're the man. I'm not getting dirty.

You guys...

...it's open.

Caution, my ass.

Yeah.

Oh, my God. Look at this place.

I know. Lights don't work.

I can't believe all this stuff is still here.

Yeah.

I mean, nobody wanted to do anything with the place so...

...after the cops left they just left it the way it was.

How can they even do that? It's kind of creepy.

Yeah.

Alright, fearless leader, what are we looking for?

Peter Panda!

Okay.

Guess we can go now. You guys, this was mine.

Still is if you want it.

No, no, I just...

...I remember playing with him, you know, right here.

Olivia was in her playpen and Mom was in the kitchen...

...and me and Peter Panda were trying to teach Olivia a nursery rhyme.

It was... shit, how'd it go?

It was...

Say, say, oh, playmate, come out and play with me And bring your dollies three, climb up my apple tree And if you find the key, and open up the door Then we'll be jolly friends forever more, more, more Think that's wrong, though. What?

The second verse. It starts, "Slide down my rainbow and to my cellar door..."

...not, "find the key and open the door."

Are you sure? I'm telling you.

I don't know how he knows that, but he's right.

You taught it to me. That's right.

Right after I came to stay with you and Aunt Nor.

Yeah.

Well, now that we've had that wonderful moment...

...if there's anything besides Peter Panda that we would like to take...

...we should get on it. Come on, Izzy.

I mean, what could possibly be more valuable than a cherished childhood moment?

Okay, yeah, seriously. What are the ground rules here?

I mean, the place gets plowed over tomorrow so I guess it's all fair game.

But just ask me first. Deal? Deal.

See you, kids.

Have fun. Be safe.

Can we just look around some?

Sure.

You alright? Yeah.

What's down here? The kitchen, basement.

Oh, good. A dark basement in an old, abandoned house.


Jesus.

Is that... It's blood.

I don't like this, Maddy. Let's get out of here.

No, no, no. It's...

...it's okay. I can... I can handle this.

What is she doing up there, anyway?

I don't know.

Come on. Yeah.


Yeah, jackpot.

Yeah.


Is that you guys?

What are you doing in here?

I had this vague memory of your mom's leather jacket, but I can't seem to find it.

Did you check the closet?

No.

You mean, this old thing? Yes.

You're not really gonna take that thing, are ya?

What? It's vintage. It's weird.

It's free. Okay, you guys.

Whatever.

Bye. Hey. Why are you being such a jerk?

You're not really gonna marry that guy, are you?

Come on.

You remember how many guys bolted after they found out what happened to me?

I mean, he's still here.

Fine, I will give him that, but he is still boring...

...and I think you should move back in with me because I'm exciting.

I know you are.

Just try to be nice, okay?

Fine.

Come on. I wanna show you my room.

Yes.

Here we go.

It's so pink.

Yeah, I had my girly-girl phase. Yeah, I can tell.

Look at all this stuff. I know.

It's a shame though, really. What?

Well, I take it you never got to make out in here.

Well, you know, it's never too late. Oh, really?

Yeah.


What the heck?


What... Jesus, Maddy. Did you do this?

What? I didn't do that! I didn't do that!

My God. Well, obviously, somebody's been here.

It's probably just a couple of kids fucking around...

...but you don't think we're the first vandals to have this bright idea, right?

Speaking of bright, why the fuck did the lights just come on?

Maybe somebody paid the bill.

Yeah, maybe.

Yeah. Well, whatever.

It just makes it easier for you to see how awesome my brand-new leather jacket is.

Okay. Well...

...still plenty to loot so...

...I'm gonna loot.

I'm just gonna be a minute. Yeah, yeah. Take your time.

Oh, my God. What? Relax.

I just wanna talk to you for a second. Listen, I'm worried about Maddy.

Is this some more of your psychobabble because you're a guidance counselor?

Therapist, Izzy.

Jake, she hasn't been here in 25 years. Just give her a break, okay?

You sure about that? What does that mean?

Do you know she's been having nightmares? She barely even sleeps anymore.

Well, maybe she doesn't wanna sleep with you.

I'm not screwing around, Izzy. Look, I'm trying to tell you something.

She got a call from her principal the other day.

Some of the kids in the class haven't been given grades on their papers.

She's just been scratching groups of five on 'em.

You know, four in a row and then a slash?

Parents are complaining. She's not telling me anything. I don't know what's going on...

...so I look in her lesson planner and it's the same thing, Izzy...

...just groups of five all over the pages.

What?

She used to do that when we were kids, when she first came to live with us.

Then my mom took her to a psychiatrist...

...got her on some meds and then she finally stopped.

So what do you think it means?

The atomic number of boron?

I don't know.

Do you know anything about the law of fives?

No.

There's a religious sect called Discordianism.

They call it pure chaos which humans can't even begin to understand.

And in pure chaos, the only discernible order is the law of fives.

Everything happens in fives...

...or somehow appropriate to fives.

They say the law of fives is never wrong.

So you think she's a... a discordianist?

No, dipshit. I'm saying I don't have a fucking clue.

Right. That's a good one.

I don't know, Jake. I'm so sorry. Izzy, nobody knows her like you do.

You can't tell me you haven't noticed something wrong with Maddy.

Look, all I'm asking is just... help me keep an eye on her, okay?

Okay.

Hey. You okay?

Yeah. Yeah, yeah, I'm fine.

It's just... it's a lot to take in, you know?

Yeah.

No, wait. Can we... just leave that room alone for now?

Yeah, sure. Okay.

Probably nothing but baby toys, anyway.

Right.

Alright, what the hell is that? What's what?

Izzy?

These? Those.

They're just...

Give 'em to me.

Xanax? You know those are...

...over two decades old, right? Probably makes it that much more potent.

Probably makes them that much more poisonous.

You could've really hurt yourself, Izzy! Wait, no!

I have been under some serious emotional stress lately.

Okay, well, then smoke a joint.

Joints cost money. And if I had a roommate who was still paying for half her rent...

...then maybe I could afford my joints. Okay. Alright.

Seriously? Nice.

Give me the rest.

I was only gonna take as needed. I can't believe you.

Nice.

You wanna talk about it? "You wanna talk about it?"

Izzy.

Really? Goddamn it.

Gosh.

You okay? What happened?

Nothing. It was just a... it was just a spider.

You okay?

Yeah, it was, it was just a big one.

It's okay, I think we're ready to get the hell out of here, right?

No, I just... I wanna stay a little longer.

Okay.

Maddy.

Listen, I know you're looking for answers, okay?

But if there is one, you're not gonna find it here. Okay?

People can be... mysteries.

Is that what you tell your clients?

My mother was an alcoholic.

She was also a psychologist who spent her entire career treating sick people.

How could she not know she was sick?

Or more important, care enough to do something about it?

I watched for 16 years as she slowly drank herself to death...

...but I don't have my answers.

And you were what? You were three when you last saw your mom.

Well, that's not good enough. It has to be, Maddy.

I... called my father last week.

You did what? I just had to ask him some questions, okay?

Why didn't you tell me? Look, he said...

...he told me it wasn't her fault that something in this house made her do it!

You don't really believe that, do you, Maddy?

Baby, it's just a house.

It's just a house with drywall with an insulation.

It's... it's a house!

Look at us. We were normal, happy.

Then my mom got pregnant. We needed a bit more room.

You know, we found this house. It was so cheap, my dad couldn't turn it down.

Three weeks later, Mom and Olivia were dead.

Dad was locked up and I... I went and lived with Aunt Nor.

Hey, hey.

Don't.

After I talked to my dad, you know, I thought it was bullshit, too.

I mean, he's crazy, right?

But then I did research of my own.

Here, here, check this out. Look at this.

What do you see?

An old picture of this house. No. Cle Elum. Washington. 1942.

An old man murdered his whole family and then hung himself from the second floor.

Holly Springs, North Carolina. 1976.

An old woman used to rent out rooms.

Then she poisoned everyone at dinner with bleach. With bleach!

It's this house, you guys. I know it. I mean...

It's a coin... hey, hey. It's a coincidence, Maddy.

People use the same architectural plans all the time.

After the murders, they just vanished.

Houses don't just vanish, Maddy.

Goddamn it.

Hey. Just listen to the voicemail my dad left me.

Hey, baby girl, I... I just wanna tell you about that day...

...and I've never told you and I don't think there's much time now.

It wasn't her fault, Maddy.

It was something in that house, it...

...something that, that made her do it.

I think it got into all of us.

When I came home, there was...

...blood everywhere in the kitchen.

She'd broken a plate and it looked like she'd stepped on one of the pieces.

Katherine? Maddy?

No one answered.

I followed the bloody footprints to the stairs.

Hey! No, no!

There... there... there was no one in the house, Maddy.

There was no one in the house.

I could hear them. I could hear them. Stop! Stop! Stop listening to me!

Please. Oh, no.

No, there was... and...

...no, there was... there was someone...

...or something telling her what to do.

It just kept pushing and pushing...

...and pushing at her.

And as I got closer to the nursery...

...I could hear someone whispering...

"...five...

...five." I know it now...

...but then I couldn't tell if they were far away...

...or if they were right next to me.

I didn't understand them.

I didn't want to. I didn't want to.

I've never been so scared.

I've never been so scared.

And when I heard that... that scream...

...I ran...

...and I ran as fast as I could.

The baby... the pillow, it was... it was right there.

Oh, God, I didn't have to see. I knew.

Oh, God, I knew!

And when I found her, her hands were over her eyes.

At first I thought she was crying...

...but then I realized she was laughing.

She was laughing!

She said she could see everything now...

...and she asked me where you were.

She said she wanted to show you but I just...

...I just wanted her to stop laughing!

I just wanted her to stop laughing!

No. No, no, no, no. That's not what he said. This isn't the same message.

What the fuck was that? 'Cause if you're fucking with us, Maddy...

...that's not funny. Take it easy, Izzy.

Listen, okay? He didn't say this earlier when I listened to it, okay?

What are you saying? Somebody changed the recording?

How? I don't know, but somebody recorded that.

No, listen, the man I heard earlier was scared, Jake. Okay?

Twenty years later, and he was still scared of this place.

You guys have to believe me. I didn't record this. I don't even know how!

What was that?

You guys hear that, right?

I don't like this. Let's just get the hell out of here.

Yeah.


What do we do now?

I don't know.

It's just a dog, right? Hey, buddy. Hey, what are you doing here?

Hey, you look friendly. Hey, buddy.

Shit!

Plan B.

Fuck! I don't like this, guys.

Okay. There's a window in the basement and it leads to the side of the house.

Oh, yeah.

Give me that. Yeah.

Alright, just be careful. Okay.

Okay.

Oh, God.

Here. Okay.

Yeah, you go first. Just be careful.

There's a window around here somewhere.

Did I ever tell anyone how much I hate basements?

Right here! Okay.

Oh, shit. It's impossible.

That looks just like Shadow.

Oh, God.

Shit. Hold on, baby.

Oh, shit. Babe, are you okay?

No! Shit!

Fuck!

Fuck!

Okay.

Shit. I'm gonna... Fuck!

I'm gonna look for another way out, guys.

Shit, hold on, baby. Here. Hold on, okay? Just hold this right here.

I got it. Hold pressure on it, okay?

I got it. I got it. Yeah. You okay?

Fuck, it's so dark.

Shit. Okay, yeah, think.

Door.

A window. A cellar door.

Okay. Okay.

Alright, guys. Okay.

Okay.

Guys, there's nothing. I'll tie it, okay?

There's nothing. What?

There's no way out. Are you okay? Just put pressure on it.

Look, Izzy, he has the same collar and the same tags.

That doesn't mean anything. I mean, that's Shadow. Look at him!

Oh, my God, Madison, that is not Shadow. That is obviously Shadow.

That is not your dog! It's the same dog!

That is not the same dog. Yes, it is!

Maddy, we have been so supportive up until now.

We drove out in the middle of the night to an abandoned house...

...to help you out with some childhood issues but this is going too far!

That is not your dog!

Your mom killed it, my dad buried it and you know that!

What was that? I don't know.

Hell, somebody's here. Somebody's fucking with us.

Alright, right here.

Okay.

You guys hear that?

Who's there? Who's there?

There's somebody else in this fucking house!

Ready?

Shit!

I have an idea. How about you go to the front door, me and Izzy will go to the back door?

I mean, the dog can't be in two places at once, right?

No, that's good. That's good.

Okay.

Shit. He's still here.

Okay.

He's still here, too!

Fuck!

What? He's there, too!

Okay, wha... what do we...

What the fuck is happening? Oh, shit.

Okay. Okay, what do we do, guys? What the fuck do we do?

Something rational.

Wait.

Baby, you can't just kill the dog.

I don't care how many of them there are. They're still just fucking dogs.

Wait. Let go of me!

Just let him kill the dog. Okay.

Be careful.

Careful, Jake.

What do you want?

Come on!

Come on, you motherfucker!

Jake... No, don't.

Oh, no, Jake! Come on!

Jake, watch out! No!

Jake! Jake! Jake! No! No!

Stay back! Don't go over there! Stay back! We have to help him!

Jake. Get in the house. Get in the house, Jake.

Come here, Jake. Oh, baby. Maddy, don't go.

Jake.

Jake, are you okay?

Oh, my God.

Jake.

Jake, Jake, get in. Get in.

Shut the door! Close it!

Jake, shut the door! Oh, my God! Oh, my God! Oh, my God!

Oh, my God! It's still there.

It's still there! Jesus Christ! Oh, my God, your arm!

What is happening? Oh, my God, baby.

Fuck! Fuck!

What do we do? Fuck!

How the fuck is it still there?

Fuck!

Fuck!

Babe. Are you okay? Come here, come here.

Fuck! Babe.

Oh, my God. Fuck.

Baby, honey, are you okay? Oh, my God, let me see it. Let me see.

Fuck.

What?

What? What? Tell me. What is it?

It's nothing! It's nothing. It's nothing. Just...

I think it's just... Fuck.

Oh, my God! Fuck! It's still there?

How the fuck is that thing still alive?

I watched you kill that fucking dog. How the fuck is it still here?

Izzy, just... just calm down! Okay? We're gonna get through this, okay?

Honey, honey, you gotta put pressure on it, okay?

We gotta get out of here. Come on. Come on.

Wait! Wait, wait! Okay, upstairs!

Upstairs there's the... What?

The kids. The nursery! We go up to the nursery window.

We signal the neighbors and we break the fucking window if we have to...

...and if we can get them to come over here they can get us out of here!

Come on. But you guys need those.

Look at this.

Look at this. Look! Look. Look.

Do you guys see that? Do you guys see that? It's the same dog. Look at this. Okay?

It's the same collar and the same tags. It's not the same fucking dog!

I don't care if my mother did kill that dog! That is the same fucking dog!

No, it's not! Yes, it is. Okay, my dad was right!

There is something in this house.

I don't know what it is, but it wants something from us.

Okay, but we're not gonna get rid of it by yelling out the fucking window.

I'm sorry, okay?

I don't know. Fuck that.

No, Izzy, wait!

Izzy.

Izzy!

Izzy, open up the door! Izzy!

Stand back.

Izzy, open up! Izzy! Izzy!

Stand back.

Izzy? Izzy?

Oh, my God! Where'd she go?

I don't know.

What? Where'd she go?

Oh, shit. Izzy!

Nothing but that goddamn dog outside.

Where did she go?

I don't know.

What are you doing?

Fuck.

Oh, my God.


Hey! Help! Hey!

Help! Hey!

Oh, my God. Help! Hey!

They can't fucking hear us! Goddamn it. I told you. I told you.

My phone. Oh, shit!

I left it in the car. I have my phone!

Well, call 911! And don't tell me you don't have a signal. You have a signal, right?

Yeah. You have power?

Yeah. Well, fucking call 911!

9-1-1. What's the nature of your emergency?

Thank God! We're locked inside this house. It's 55 Ballahack Road, okay?

My cousin's gone missing and then there's this dog outside. Please send help!

Don't worry, help is on the way, baby girl, but you don't wanna leave just yet.

The show's just about to begin. God. Oh, my God.

Who is this? Oh, my God.

What the fuck do you want? You'll see. You'll see everything.

Fuck!

Did you see that? What?

Did you see that? No!

Come here.

Watch. Watch.

You ready? Watch.

Oh, my God. Where the fuck are we?

We're... we're never gonna get out of here.

We're never gonna get out of here. We're never...

We're never gonna get out of here.

We're never gonna get out of here.

Hey. Hey. We're never gonna get out of here.

Hey, we gotta go. We gotta go. We gotta go right now. Okay?

Come on. Come on.

Hey, come on. Come on.

Okay? Come on.

Okay. It's okay. Come on.

Come on.

Yes.

Nice.

Jake, Jake, I'm sorry.

I didn't think that if I brought you here...

...any of this would happen. It's all my fault.

Hey, hey, hey, it's okay. Hey, hey, hey. Hey! It's okay.

Baby, you didn't do anything wrong, okay? Alright?

We're gonna get through this, okay? Okay, baby?

Okay.

Okay, what the fuck is that? Jake! Your arm.

What the hell?

It didn't really hurt you. Look at my thumb.

Yeah, but the dog didn't do that, you did. That's impossible.

Yeah, but... hey, maybe it can't really hurt us.

Maybe it's just showing us things until we do what it wants.

Which is what? I don't know.

This is insane.

So you're saying we can just walk out that door.

We can get in the car and drive away and whatever that fucking dog does...

...it will just magically heal? No, no, it can't be that easy.

It can! Yes, it can! Right?

I mean, everything up to this point has been about keeping us in this house.

And now it has Izzy. It's alright.

We can make it, okay? We can do this. We'll send the cops for Izzy, okay?

What? Wait. We're gonna send the cops. Let's go.

Wait, wait, Jake. Right now!

What if I'm wrong?

Okay. Alright, you ready? Jake, wait, wait.

Izzy!

No!

It's okay. It's okay. It's okay.

What happened to her? I don't know.

How did she get out there?

We'll ask her when she wakes up.

No.

Shit! Fuck!

Maybe the blood isn't real, but the pain is.

We'll never make it out of the fucking driveway!

What do we do now?

Get her squared away first. There's a rope in the basement.

Okay. Did you see her eyes?

Here. If she moves again, you hit her with this. I'll be right back.

Okay.

Nice.

Shit! What is it?

Nothing! Just some boxes fell!


What the hell?

Fuck.

What is it?

Nothing. Stay up there.

What's happening?


Hey.

What is this? I was hoping you could tell me.

Get her legs.

Hold on.

Okay. Alright.

Alright, here we go.

Okay. Okay. Shit.

Who's the boy, Maddy? What?

The boy, who is he?

Oh, my God.

I think he's my brother. What?

Yeah, I have a brother or I had one. God, how old's this thing?

I don't know. I saw a plaster-cast handprint in the basement. It said '82.

Oh, my God, he'd be five years older than me. You've never seen him before?

No! God, I can't believe they never told me about him.

What are you... what are you doing?

Trust me. If she moves or if she struggles, it'll choke her, okay?

Where did you learn how to do that?

TV. What have you been watching?

"Dexter." Listen, what does this kid have to do with any of this?

I don't know.

You don't know? No.

And you don't know what happened to him? No! God, I didn't even know he was alive.

That ought to hold.

But maybe she does.

Stay right there.

Oh, my God.


Stop struggling if you wanna breathe. Alright? Stop struggling!

Let me go. Izzy! Izzy, what happened?

Well, let me go.

Izzy, tell us what happened. Izzy, what happened?

What happened, Izzy?

You don't understand.

You haven't seen. Seen what, Izzy? Seen what?

They're so much older than you think.

And they're so much stronger. Who?

She thinks she got away, but she didn't. They don't let her go. They never let her go.

What are you talking about? And she's not gonna stop there.

She's gonna kill us.

What? What?

I know you're afraid that she's gonna turn out like your mother...

...that she's gonna hide her vodka in the living room...

...like she always did when you were a boy. What? What is she talking about?

That she's gonna pass out at your birthday party...

...and that she's gonna drink herself to death.

What is she talking about?

What are you talking about? Who is this?

Did they say anything about him?

Is this my brother? He had an accident.

What happened?

So many people had accidents around your mother.

He was in the tub...

...and she was supposed to be watching him.

They showed me that, too.

They showed me so many things and it's all I can see now.

Izzy.

Please let me go! Not until you give us some fucking answers.

I don't wanna see anymore! What do you mean stop...

What did you mean they were gonna stop? Can you please let me go?

Not until you give us some fucking answers, Izzy! What did you mean?

I don't wanna see... What did you mean they were gonna stop?

With Maddy? What did you mean by that? I don't wanna see.

I don't wanna see anymore. I don't want...

Izzy, Izzy, stop! Izzy, Izzy, stop!

She's choking! She's choking! Jake, Jake, do something!

Jake! Jake, do something!

Do something! Do something! Do something!

Fuck! Izz! Jake, do something!

Oh, shit.

I'm coming! Oh, shit.

Hurry up!

Fuck! Jake, hurry!

Jake, hurry! I'm gonna...

Oh, my God. Oh, fuck! Oh, God.

Alright, get it off. Get it off.

Oh, shit. Izzy?

Is she alright? Oh, shit. I think so.

God! Damn it, Jake. How was it supposed to work?

I didn't know she was gonna choke herself. What the fuck was she talking about?

I don't know.

How could she know those things about my mother? I never told anybody that shit.

That's what this place does.

It takes things from our minds and uses them against us.

I saw the boy from the picture.

We never should have come here. We never should have come here.

We're gonna get out of here, all of us.

Help me get her up. Come on. Come on!

Get her arms.

Just hold her there, okay? Just hold her there.

Okay.

Give me her hands. Okay.

Alright.

Alright, what now?

We can't stay here. Come on.

What? We can't stay here.

Madison!

I'm so sorry. This is all my fault.

None of this would've ever happened if we didn't come here.

I should've never brought us here.

I'm scared, Jake.

Look, she's dangerous, okay? We just have to keep her in here, alright?

She tried to kill us, Madison. No, it's just using her. Okay?

If we can get her out of here maybe she won't be like that.

Yeah, you saw how that worked, didn't you?

We just have to get her out of here.

It's not her. No, it's not her in there.

Izzy?

Izzy! Izzy, no!

Jake!

No! Oh, my God, no!

No! No! No!

No! Oh, shit! Izzy? No!

Help her! Izzy!

Get some water! Get some water!

Izzy!

Izzy! Water! Get some water!

Okay.

Water!

Jake, Jake, you have to stop her.

I've got the water.

Izzy! Why did you do this to yourself, Izzy?

Oh, my God! What? What?

Oh, my God! I... I can see.

What? Izzy? I can still see.

No!

Izzy. I can still see.

Izzy.

Izzy? Izzy.

I can see...

...everything.

Izzy. Izzy?

Izzy! Oh, shit. Oh, my God! I think she's dead!

No, no, no. Oh, my God, she's dead!

Izzy! She's dead.

Oh, shit. Oh, my God, she's dead!

She's dead! Oh, my God! Oh, shit. Oh, shit. Okay, okay.

Oh, my God, oh, my God, is she dead?

No, no, no, no, she's alive.

She's alive.

Oh, my God, this is all my fault.

This is all my fault.

She said they called you here for something. What did she mean?

I don't know. What did she mean, Madison?

What did she mean? Madison, tell me.

I don't know, I don't know, I don't know.


For a long time I had... had this dream.

You know, I'm hiding like... like I did that day...

...but this time she finds me.

No matter where I hide, she always finds me and she tells me...

"...You must die. Don't you see? Five must die."

That doesn't mean anything, Madison. It's just...

What? It's just another dream? Another coincidence?

Look, right before I talked to my father I started having that same nightmare again.

It was like I already knew.

I'm pregnant.

What?

Eight weeks.

Why didn't you tell me?

I don't know, okay?

I needed to come here first, you know?

I want to know why she did what she did...

...if...

...if that's inside of me, too.

It is.

Jake!

What are you doing?

Hey, just... just let us go. Okay?

Just... just let us go. Goddamn it, what is wrong with you?

What are you doing? Your mother wasn't like the rest of them.

Please, please, please.

She took very little convincing.

Leave us alone! Because she wanted to.

Just let us go. She wanted to. She wanted to.

She wanted to, she wanted to!

And all we had to do was show her...

...how beautiful all the blood is.

And now...

...we are gonna show you, too.

What are you doing?

Run!

God!


Help me, Maddy.

Maddy, help.


Jake!

No, no, no. No, no, no.

No, no, no, no.

You can't hurt me. You can't hurt me.

Just leave me alone. Just leave me alone, please.

Please, just leave me alone.

Please, just let me go! Just leave me alone!


Jake.

Jake.

Jake.

Oh, Jake, I'm coming!

Jake. Jake, baby.

Wake up! Jake! Jake.

Hold on, baby!

Hold on, baby, I'm coming!

Jake, I'm coming!

Come on. Goddamn it!

I'm coming!

Jake!

Jake! Jake, wake up! Wake up!

Goddamn it! Oh, God. Oh, God. Oh, God. Goddamn it.

Jake!

Jake.

Come on.

Come on.

Come on. Wake up!

Come on. Come on, wake up.

Come on, come on.

It's okay. It's okay. It's okay.

It's okay. You're okay.

Say something. Say something, honey.

Jake. They were right, Maddy.

They showed me everything, Maddy.

Jake. They showed me.

They showed me everything. I know what you're gonna do.

I can't let you do that to our little girl. What do you mean, "our little girl?"

It's a girl. How do you know that?

Where'd you get that?

It's just gonna go on and on and on...

...and on and on forever.

No, no, no, no. Yes.

We can stop it. We can stop it.

We can't. I can't.


Please, I don't wanna hurt you, Jake. We could still run.


Oh, no. Jake.

It's so beautiful.


Why are you doing this to me?

It's what we have always done, Maddy.

We are five...

...and we are infinite...

...but we need you.

All of the blood that you bring...

...all of the pain you feel...

...all of those beautiful...

...beautiful screams.

We have missed you so much.

We want you...

...to stay with us forever.

I just wanna go home.

You are home.

Who are you?

We are your family.

Your mother...

...little Olivia.

But we can't move on without you...

...and we are running out of time.

No. No, you killed them.

We were just getting started.

But your mother did something we didn't expect.

She couldn't save her little one...

...but you.

She blinded herself so she couldn't find me?

Very clever.

Of course...

...your father took care of her...

...but by then...

...you'd already run off and it was too late...

...and we still needed three more.

So we waited...

...like we always wait...

...but we can't wait anymore...

...so we reached out to your father...

...and we called to you.

And now you are here...

...with the three that we need.

Why five?

Five is harmony.

It is the key that opens the door.

And you step through the chaos...

...and you exit the other side...

...and you are washed free of all that beautiful...

...beautiful blood...

...and you are ready...

...to start again.


Five must die.

Do you see?

It doesn't have to be you, though.

Good girl.

Now...

...open the door.


Sarah.

Sarah, why didn't you answer me?

Look at me when I'm talking to you.
