Escape Room (2017) Script

(suspenseful music)


How much further?

Uncle Ammon, how far shall we go? Until I say we've walked enough.

Can't we just stop and rest for a bit?

(fast paced drumming)

(singing in foreign language)


This spot will do.

What is that? Dig.

Dig? Dig what? Dig a hole.

I'm not here to dig for you! You're here because you were too curious.

But why should I dig a hole? Because I say so. Take it!

(suspenseful music)

(panting)


(shovel clanking)

Done. I'm really hungry.

Then eat.

Don't you want to join me? I'm not hungry.

Don't be angry, uncle. I didn't mean it. I'm just tired and hungry.

I'm not angry, but you should have stayed away from it.

This was not something you were supposed to see. That's why you are here now.

Otherwise, I would have taken this trip alone.

(low roaring)

Don't touch it.

It's just a box. What is wrong with you?

What happens next? We must bury it.

Bury it? Did we walk for two days to bury a box?

Yes.

Why?

(thudding)

I think you've heard the stories.

Yes.

Then you know why.

Come on! They are just spooky stories for kids.

They are true!

It will be found.

Do as you like, old fool. Bury it if it makes you feel better.

Nobody is going to find it out here.

It was found before and it will be found again.

Who would look for a box here? There's nothing but snakes and scorpions.

This box will be found.


Next time you want to teach me a lesson, do it at home.

You didn't have to drag me here. Wait till people hear this story.

Nobody has to know we were here. Nobody will find out.

But someone already knows. Who?

(gun firing)

(ominous string music)

(speaking in foreign language)


(gun firing)

(eerie orchestral music)


(gentle string music)

(laptop slamming)

(clicking) (ringing)

God damn it.

(ringing)

Oh, here we go.

Hello?

[Brice] Molly, it's me.

Ah, good morning, Me.

Starting early today are we, Me?

Listen, I've been online for the past couple of hours looking at all the usual sites, and we're not on any of the top lists, not one.

And you're calling to tell me this because?

Well who else am I gonna call?

Okay, first of all, calm down.

You're gonna give yourself an aneurism.

Second, it's gonna be fine.

I know, I'm sorry, I...

This was supposed to be fun, remember?

I'm sorry, I just, I need this to be a big season or...

It will be.

I'm gonna be at the office soon, okay?

I'm heading over there now.

You stay by the phone.

Maybe things will pick up.

I'll be in soon.

[Molly] Okay, see you soon.

All right.

(screaming)

(laughing)

(clock chiming)

(bell ringing)

[Ramona] Looking for anything in particular?

Not really, just looking around, thanks.

(clocks ticking)

Some amazing stuff in here.

Is it authentic?

It is, hence the price.

Holy shit.

To most, that dream catcher would be nothing more than a decorative piece, something to put out on the patio.

But to that one person out there, the right person, someone plagued with nightmares for instance, it is nearly priceless.

I don't know if I'm your bread and butter type of customer, but your shop is speaking my language.

Incredible stuff.

Have you ever heard of escape rooms?

I run a popular one here in town, Deranged.

Maybe you've heard of it?

It's a pretty cool deal.

You should try it some time.

Listen, I'm lookin' for somethin' to, to spice it up a little bit, something special, know what I mean?

I gotta stay a cut above the, (low rumbling music) above the competition.

[Ramona?] You see anything to your liking so far?

Yeah, actually I do.

What is that?

Oh, nothing you'd be interested in.

I'm interested, it's perfect.

It's nice and foreboding.

It is, but it's not for sale.

Are you sure?

[Ramona?] Quite sure.

What am I missing?

You uh, you sell things here, right?

I do, and some things, I do not sell.

This box is not to be trifled with.

It's no toy, no simple decor piece.

Why don't you try one of the iron cast candle holders over there?

I'm sure that it would do wonders for your room's ambiance.

Nah, that box, that box has me hooked.

It just, It has a way of doing that.

What, it's got voodoo powers coursing through it, huh?

Voodoo has nothing to do with it.

That box has a history, a dark one.

You're just reeling me in more and more, you know that, right?

It's called the Skull Box.

It's considered to be, to those in the know, one of the most cursed objects in the world, right up there with the crying boy painting and the Annabelle doll.

The one from the film?

No, the real one.

So what's the story?

No one knows where it came from originally or who made it.

It's reputed to hold a demon inside of it, a very old one.

All is well as long as the box remains closed, which it is, always.

A demon, huh?

You really believe in all that?

Demons are real.

It has nothing to do with believing or disbelieving.

It simply is.

Well, fair enough, but if it's so dangerous, why keep it here?

Better here in safe hands, than out there in the hands of those who don't understand or respect the power it contains.

Name your price.

Not for sale.

(phone ringing)

Excuse me one moment.

Hello?

Yes, I do know.

Absolutely.

(low, suspenseful music)

All right.

Don't get it wet, and whatever you do, don't feed it after midnight.

Okay, call me back.

(bell ringing)

Don't say I didn't warn you.

(upbeat pop music)

(throat clearing)

Can't talk, working.

Oh, is that what we're calling it now?

I can't write my review of the game until I play the game, can I?

Are you ready?

Are you sure you're ready for me to be ready?

We gotta leave this place in like two minutes if we wanna get there on time.

Do we really have to go?

Yes.

You are gonna love it babe, promise.

I doubt that.

Horror is my first love.

Don't be jealous.

I was gonna wear that shirt tonight.

Oh, well, guess you're just gonna have to come and get it.

This is level six, babe.

Level six, do you know how hard it is...

Forget it.

Shit.

(phone ringing)

Hey.

Hey, you guys left yet?

[Jeff] Not yet, leaving in a few though.

I basically have to drag Angie to this thing by her ankles, so hope... (doorbell ringing)

Hey man, just one second.

Hey, nice costume, truly terrifying.

Smart ass.

Hey Jess, Ben's here.

[Jess] Okay, I'll be right there.

[Jeff] What about you guys?

I'm picking up Jess as we speak.

[Jeff] Cool, see you there.

Hey uh, tonight's the night I'm gonna ask her to move in with me.

You sure about this?

Yeah, I'm sure.

[Jeff] I think you're crazy to do it, give up your domain.

Bold move, my friend.

Yeah, well, I love her.

Hey.

Ah, I gotta go.

Hi.

Uh, how long have you um, what all did you hear? (laughing)

Me?

What did I hear?

Nothing.

Okay, all right, good.

Go for it, tiger.

She's one of the good ones.

I know.

[Jess] Okay, I'm coming.

Hey. Hi.

Have fun you two. (smacking)

Oh, thanks. (laughing)

Hi. Hey baby.

(moaning)

You look great.

Really?

Well, you are super easy to please.

I was thinking after this thing, maybe we'd go out to dinner, just the two of us?

Really?

That's nice.

Yeah, I thought it'd be nice to just have a little alone time without the Jeff and Angie show.

(laughing)

You know, just a little time to us just to talk, whatever.

What'd you wanna talk about?

Nothing, just...

Oh my god.

You're pregnant, aren't you?

No, no, nothin' like that.

Okay.

But I do have a wife and two kids in Wisconsin.

I like to call 'em my little cheese curds.

We still cool?

I'm gonna order the most expensive thing on the menu, but yeah, we're cool.

All right, that's fair enough.

(upbeat pop music)

(suspenseful string music)

All right, uh, Jason?

[Jeff] No.

[Ben] Okay, Michael.

[Jeff] No.

What about Pennywise?

You are killing me, man.

Please, jump into this century.

This century, what are you talking about?

Hey, I see that.

Jess, I'm just tryin' to stop your boyfriend from embarrassing himself with a lame costume this year, again.

Oh, again?

Yeah, again.

You know what I'm talking about.

Yeah, I know what you're talking about, and the Wheeler from Return to Oz, that is an all-time classic. (laughing)

Come on, I mean, remind me what you were again last year.

Not that it needs reminding, but I was, babe, why don't you remind him?

Oh, let's see.

You were, what were you?

Oh, that donkey man thing.

Incorrect.

I was Craig, the lamb mask-wearing killer from You're Next.

Yes, of course, it's very, very original, mm hmm.

Now did you get your mask in the kids section with all the other 16-year old kids?

Ooh, funny.

The movie was rad, it's an instant horror film classic.

[Ben] Okay, it was not and it is not.

Can we...

Don't worry, they'll tire themselves out.

[Jeff] Modern horror classic, it's a different thing.

[Ben] Modern horror classic, that's an oxymoron.

Here, go on and take one.

Pass it on to friends.

Is this kinda thing really that popular?

Escape rooms?

You bet, yeah, they've been growing over the last few years.

But they're really, really, really starting to catch fire now.

Hm.

Is it really that scary?

I'm not like the horror aficionado that my friends are.

Not really a fan at all, to be honest.

Oh, yeah, they're not all horror based like ours, but we topped the list that year for a reason.

You're gonna have a killer time. (chuckling)

(throat clearing) I'm sorry, they pay me to say things like that.

Gotcha.

That's what makes horror.

It was more than just CGI...

Your mom?

She was an instant classic.

When I met her, she was so gorgeous.

Ooh. (laughing)

You son of a bitch.

Jeff? Yeah.

Hi, I'm Brice, nice to meet you.

I've read some of your articles before.

You have great taste in horror.

Yes I do. Yeah?

Some of us aren't so lucky, are we Ben?

Hi. Hi there.

And you are?

Hi, Angie. Angie, pleasure.

That must make you Jess.

Yes, hi. Hi.

Well, welcome.

It's 8:00pm, it's your slot.

We are punctual, if nothing else here.

Time is always at the forefront of our minds, as it will be with you too soon inside.

Follow me.

[Jeff] Let's go.

[Angie] What are you guys gettin' into?

[Jess] Here we go.

(crickets chirping)

RJ.

Dude, you're supposed to be in the room.

The 8:00pm group is already with Brice.

I'm going, I'm going.

And let's do the boss man a favor and not blaze up at work.

It helps me get into character.

You wouldn't understand, you're not an actor.

Oh, that makes two of us.

Next pilot season, I'm gonna book the big one.

Bullshit.

Sorry, what was that?

I'm not paid enough for this.

Tic tac it and run.

Have fun.

[RJ] Yep.

(door banging shut)

The concept of the escape room's fairly simple.

You have to find a way to unlock the front door and get out, that's it.

You have 55 minutes to do that.

The room is full of clues and puzzles that you have to use to escape.

Work together.

Don't overthink everything.

That being said, anything, no matter how subtle, could be vital in helping you to survive.

Ooh. (laughing)

Remember, every second counts.

Once we lock you in, you're in.

There are no phones in there, no wireless, so your cellphones are useless.

And it's soundproof, so our neighbors aren't annoyed by your screams.

(laughing)

The only way out is to follow the clues.

You ready?

Let's do this.

Let the games begin. (clapping)

(laughing)

Now, follow my voice to hell.

[Jess] I don't like this at all.

[Angie] This is your idea of a date?

[Jess] How long do we have to keep these things on for?

(metal latch clanking)

[Jeff] Take it off guys.

[Jess] Oh my god.

(laughing)

(electric buzzing) (low suspenseful music)

[Jeff] Yeah.

Oh yeah.

What kind of a weirdo thinks up a place like this?

(whooshing)

(latch clanking)

How do people not love horror, huh?

You're such a geek.

Lucky for me, you make it up in other ways.

Mm hmm.

It's in my blood, babe.

And god willing, one day we will get our script produced, etch our names among the titans of the genre.

[Ben] That's right. (laughing)

Can I get a coffee please?

[Molly] Above my pay grade.

Right.

Okay.

Come here.

(clicking)

[Richard On Recorder] My name is Richard Doyle.

If you are listening to this, then I am, I am now dead.

My body will never be found.

I'm sure my son's disposed of it by now, like he did the others, including his mother's.

I tried to stop him, I tried.

I saw the warning signs early on.

Jonathan, is not normal.

His mind is wrong, twisted.

When I look into his eyes, I, I see nothing.

It's just emptiness.

He is in every sense of the word, evil.

Evil. (laughing)

[Richard On Recorder] This was his killing room, a place of pain and suffering.

There were times I would swear the room itself was alive, watching me, as if it, he isn't lost to us, his soul has been absorbed into the very walls themselves.

I've done my best to lock him in here forever, body and soul.

Whatever you do, don't let him out.

Just get out before he gets you, and he will.

It's only a matter of, time.

Showtime.

(beeping)

(suspenseful string music)

Okay, so, where do we start?

Look around the room, take it all in.

Anything could be a clue.

Mm, I'll be on Facebook if you need me.

Uh, no wireless, remember?

Oh god, I forgot.

Hurry up.

I'm bored already.

Have no fear, I'm a master at these things.

By the by, the tickets just came online for the thing, 35 millimeter, we are going.

Oh hell yeah, that's the one remake that's better than the original.

What?

That remake sucks.

No, I'm talking about the John Carpenter version.

You know he made a remake of the 1954 original.

You knew there was an original, right?

[Jeff] Yeah, of course.

Oh no, no no no no, go stand in the corner.

You stand...

That's disappointing, you disappoint.

You're scared of the dark.

(laughing)

All right, all right, but let's figure out what we gotta do, okay?

Look for patterns or anything out of the ordinary, positions of things.

Two chairs, upright.

Imagine that.

(laughing)

There's a bookshelf, and there's tons of books on it.

Check it out.

Three black studs on the ship thing.

We have this cabinet.

There's a lock on here (smacking) with three numbers.

Six, six, six.

(chain rattling)

What was that?

Came from the dark side.

Why don't you go check it?

(squealing) No, after you, smart ass, you go.

Stand back, wussies, I'll take care of this.

(eerie string music)

That's pretty good.

Think we found Jonathan.

Who's Jonathan?

Come on. Really?

Jonathan, the son, the killer of his parents.

Oh, I guess I wasn't paying attention.

[Ben] That figures.

So what's he gonna do?

Is he just gonna, stand there and try to spook us?

I don't know.

Doesn't talk much, does he?


This is sweet.

(low rumbling)

(voices whispering indistinctly)

(speaking in foreign language)

(sniffing)

(pulsing ominous music)

Hmm.

Anything?

No, unless we need to make pancakes.

There's some stuff up on this mantle.

Eraser.

Okay, I've done my part.

Thank you very much.

[Jeff] Check the jars, are they empty?

[Ben] Yeah.

Um, we have a pattern on this lock.

It's red, green, blue.

Red green blue, red green blue, red green blue.

Red green blue.

(booming) (screaming)

Papa Doyle, ladies and gentlemen.

Nice find, Angie.

Is it just me, or did it just get really cold in here?

Ben, your girlfriend's nippin' out.

(glasses clanking)

Ohh yes.

The master.

Two gold coins, definitely a clue.

(coins jangling)

All right.

Hey hey, check it out.

[Angie] And, what?

The handle's missing.

I call that a clue.

I call that poor craftsmanship.

Hmm.

Every detail matters.

Ah, so noted master.

I love it when she calls me that.

[Angie] I thought this place was supposed to be scary?

I just feel like I'm back in school taking my SATs.

[Ben] You didn't think that was scary?

A little bit.

I don't hear the phone ringing.

[Molly] Because it's not.

That's not good.

People should be lined up out the door.

Relax, the season just started.

That's my point, it's opening weekend.

The phone should be ringin' off the hook.

Well, you know, we're not the hot new kid on the block anymore.

I mean, there's other escape rooms popping up in town.

We can't have another season like last year, or that's it, it's over.

[Molly] You can't win every year, dude.

I mean, being voted number one once is impressive.

That was two years ago.

Who gives a shit about two years ago?

You gotta stay relevant.

Okay.

All right, I don't really do good with feel good talks, so let's just get this over with.

You are too hard on yourself.

This is just a job, it's not who you are.

Well it sure as hell is now.

I put all my money into this.

I lost my wife over this.

Without it, who am I?

A decent guy doing the best he can.

Decent, huh?

You really think so?

You see that box I brought in earlier?

With the skull on it?

I bought it from the shopkeeper at the antique store around the block.

She said it's one of the most cursed objects in the world, that there's a demon inside of it.

Gotta drum up business somehow, right?

Pay off the mountain of bills I have piling up.

Do you pay attention to the horror films that you watch, Mister Horror King?

You don't ever mess with that weird kinda paranormal stuff.

Ever.

What?

Never took you for the type to believe in all that.

Hey, if the demon comes out and attacks us all, I will duly apologize, you have my word.

Very funny. (phone ringing)

Bigger the scares the better the experience.

Yeah, okay, okay.

Thank you for calling Deranged, this is Molly.

Oh, hey mom.

Yeah, yeah it's a little slow around here.

Yeah, fuck off.

[Ben] How we lookin' on time?

46 minutes and counting.

We got a black safe, anyone check this?

Silver lock.

[Jeff] Yep, we need a key.

[Ben] Round key.

[Jeff] Key, a key, a round key.

Where would I be if I were a key?

[Ben] Okay, round key.

Oh boys.

I think I got somethin' for ya.

[Ben] Yeah? Yeah.

[Ben] So what you got?

Look, see, there's symbols in this one and then there's shapes in that one.

Oh yeah, good eye, Columbo.

Ah yes.

So now what?

So now we think, we put our heads together.

We have to figure out what these patterns have in common and how they can get us outta here.

Oh, this is totally stressing me out.

Are you trying to stress me out, babe?

You know I turn into a lioness when I get stressed.

I don't think you need my help for that.

[Angie] Mm, thanks.

(buzzing)

What the hell?

(keys clacking)

(metal chain rattling)

Jesus, I forgot that guy was in here.

(suspenseful music)

Woah.

[Ben] He's closer now.

What?

[Jess] He was against the wall before, or at least he was closer to it.

Ah okay, okay, I get it.

So a friend of mine told me about a escape room he went to about a year ago.

It was something like this, but it was zombies or something.

Anyway, so our friend here, let's call him Stitchface, well he's got this chain wrapped him around, it's connected to the wall.

So, every five minutes or so, on the dot, the cog releases some chain, it gives him more room to work with.

(gasping) So he gets closer to us?

Yes, and if he gets to us before we get out...

What?

We die, or whatever, game over.

All right everybody, stakes are raised.

Game on, we gotta get outta here.

(ominous music)

Okay, we got the patterns on the painting, triangles, gotta look for that.

We got the colors, the colors mean somethin', red green blue.

What?

I have no idea.

Just, anything, anything with the colors.

Okay, don't overthink it.

Just look around.

These colors come into play somewhere, they have to.

Okay, think.

Jess, you find anything?

Um, nothing obvious, anyway.

There's just a bunch of normal books, no codes written in them or any pages missing or anything like that.

Look at you getting into this.

I'm impressed.

Well, I know that you wanna get out of here more than any of us, so I do it all for you.

That's why we're BFFs.

BFFs.

Wait.

What?

Of course.

What do you see?

Uh, books.

[Jeff] And?

Enlighten us already.

Red, green, blue.

Oh. [Ben] Shit.

Five, three, four, five three four.

Oh, there we go kid, yes. (laughing)

Five, three, and four. (lock clicking)

[Jess] Ooh.

Aha.

We have a key ladies and gentlemen.

All right.

[Jeff] And it does not fit this lock.

What else needs a key?

Um, safe, the safe. Yes.

Safe, perfect.

Bring it over here. (grunting)

Silver round key for a silver round lock, that makes sense.

Ooh, we're gonna be outta here in half the time.

Scissors.

Um, what needs cutting?

Creeper's eyeballs.

Babe.

Look at him, he's freaking me out.

He keeps staring.

He better not be staring at my boobs.

I think he's looking at my boobs you guys.

I can't say I blame the guy.

Angie, let's not heckle the psychotic hillbilly, all right?

He probably hasn't seen any in a long time.

True. Yeah, exactly.

I'd be the same way if I was workin' at an escape room, the silent emotionless killer.

Yeah, like Mikey Myers.

Eh, but you'd probably play him in like the fifth one, where he cries and shit.

Yeah.

He never cried, so...

Oh, yes, yes, fifth Halloween.

Girl was in the coffin, he's lookin' over her, had the...

[Jeff] Ooh, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah yeah, my bad.

Boys, hey. Hey.

Remember that thing?

Right, time.

Time, time, time, time.

Okay, scissors.

Anything that needs cutting?

Anything.

I don't know. The thing?

We got 37 minutes.

All right, what are we missing?

Maybe we should look a little deeper into the dark side.

Ladies?

Hm, bite me.

After you, please.

Okay, here we go.

Oh, we got somethin' here.

(laughing)

We found it.

(chain rattling)

(ominous music)

What is it?

[Jeff] All right.

What do we got?

(laughing)

[Jeff] Voila.

Oh. A handle.

I'm the master, thank you very much.

Thank you, thank you thank you thank you.

(stabbing) (groaning)

Dude.

(stabbing) (screaming)

(thudding)

(screaming)

(dripping)

(whacking)

Oh my god!

Jesus Christ!

(chain rattling)

[Jess] Come on, oh my god!

(banging)

Open the fucking door.

Open the door!

(screaming)

Open the goddamn door!

Hey!

Hey!

Open the goddamn door.

[Jess] What are you doing?

There's a goddamn fucking camera around here.

Fucking open the door!

[Angie] Let us out!

Let us out! Help!

Let us out, let us out, let us out!

[Ben] Open the door!

(wailing)

What do we do?

(eerie music)

(crickets chirping)

(somber piano music)

Shit.


[Molly] Whatcha doin' out here?

Lost the camera in the room.

What, when?

A few minutes ago.

Okay, so what do you wanna do?

I don't know.

It's never happened before.

I've been on the phone to the company for the past 10 minutes trying to get 'em to troubleshoot it but no one picks up.

Did you check the modem?

It's hardwired.

Mm.

Should you go check on it?

Is it a liability thing?

A bit of a gray area.

Okay, why don't you just go in there and pause the game for a second...

No, no no no no. To reset the camera.

Absolutely not.

They are in there, in the moment.

I'm not gonna pull 'em out of it now.

It'll ruin it.

Blowing it out of proportion much, are we?

Blowing it out of proportion, Molly?

One of the guys in there, he's a horror reviewer for Bloodlust.com.

His reviews get a lotta traffic.

Okay, so what you're saying is, you're like the chef that's terrified of what the food critic's gonna write about your filet mignon?

It just takes one bad review from someone like that, one, and we are history.

So what?

Just ride it out.

I'll fix the camera before the next group comes in, but we are not stopping the game.

Okay.

I don't think that's a good idea.

Fuck you. (glass shattering)

Fuckin' asshole.

Fuck you.

(suspenseful music)

Angie, where's your cell phone?

Angie, hey, Angie, where's your cell phone?

(wailing)

Geez, Angie, Angie... Oh my god!

Angie, Angie! We're gonna die in here!

No, Angie. We're gonna die in here!

Angie, you're not gonna die.

Just like he killed Jeff!

You're not gonna die.

Shut up, shut up and listen, listen to me, all right?

You're gonna be fine.

We're gonna get out of here, all right, but I need you, I need you to keep it together.

Look at me.

Jeff. (crying)

I know, I know, but you gotta push that down.

You gotta push that down and be strong for us, okay?

'Cause we need you.

We need to be strong, okay?

'Cause we're gonna get outta here, we're gonna be fine, all right?

Where's your cell phone?

In my, in my purse.

Okay, okay.

[Jess] What about the signal?

It's, it's, we gotta try something.

[Jess] There's no signal...

What other idea is there?

We gotta do something.

Come on, come on.

Come on, damn it!

Don't move, okay?

Don't move, just stay here.

There's gotta be a fuckin' signal.

Fuck me.

It's okay.

It's really not.

(groaning)

(mumbling)

(sweater ripping)

It's all right.

[Jess] You're lucky that you didn't cut an artery.

It's okay.

I'm scared.

I'm scared, really scared.

(crying)

(chain rattling)

Oh my god.

(scissors scraping)

Get back, get back.

(eerie string music)


We have to keep playing the game.

What?

[Ben] We have to keep playing the game and get out of here.

Ben, this is not a game anymore.

What are you talking about?

No one's gonna save us.

Yes they will, they have to.

If you're gonna bet your life on that, because in 30 minutes he's gonna be right on top of us.

[Jess] Oh my god, I can't believe this is happening.

Look, we have to get ourselves out, all right?

That is our only choice.

I can't, I can't.

My brain doesn't work like yours.

I can't do puzzles, I can't do it.

[Ben] Hey, hey, hey. I can't do it.

We got to.

We don't have another choice.

We've lost a lotta time.

You and me, you and me, we can get through this, okay?

Okay.

Yeah?

Okay.

Okay, all right, come on, come on.

Okay.

All right.

I don't wanna overthink it, just, okay, we need four coins to get the key.

We have coins.

Yeah, we've got two coins already.

We need two more, there's two left somewhere.

All right, uh, they gotta be here somewhere.

Okay, it's gotta be right in front of us.

We've already checked everything, so it's gotta be somewhere right in front of us.

[Jess] The paintings.

Oh yeah, okay.

This, this, will it move?

[Jess] No, it won't move.

[Ben] It's not moving? No.

Okay, it's gotta mean something.

Fuck.

It's just fucking triangles, all right?

It's the same as that color black in the books.

We gotta figure out where it fits with the patterns.

I don't see any other triangle.

We just have to step back, all right, just step back and look at it simply and figure it out.

Okay, okay.

Wait a second, wait, wait, wait.

What?

(clicking) Oh, they're punch keys!

Okay, that's why it's not a real painting.

There's somethin' behind it.

Just have to figure out how to fucking open it.

(voices whispering indistinctly)

Angie.

Please, please.

Oh.

Angie.

Please.

Help me.

(eerie string music)

Help me.

They're connected somehow.

These are, they're connected, I just can't figure out how.

I love you.

I love you, Angie.

Don't let me die, please.

(raspy breathing)

(crying)

Just, hold me.

(chain rattling)

[Angie] He's alive.

Angie! What are doing?

(stabbing)

(screaming)

Fuck you!

Fuck you, fuck you!

(thudding)

Oh no!

(crying)

I'm sorry, but we have to keep going.

Don't look.

We have to keep going.

Come on, we can do this.

No.

We have to.

We gotta keep going.

Just don't look, all right?

Don't look over there, focus on me, focus on me, okay?

We can do this, okay?

Come on, come on.

Okay, okay.

Okay.

(whimpering)

Jess.

You got it, you got it.

I got it, okay, yeah.

These other triangles are just pointing away from each other or at each other.

Okay.

Punch these in, punch these in.

It's right, left, (clicking) left, right, right, left, left, right, right, left.

You're fine.

(creaking)

Okay.

There's coins.

[Jess] There's coins, there's coins.

Let's go.

All right, come on, come on.

Okay.

(coins clanking)

Do you have the other coins?

No, no I don't.

Who had the coins last?

(tapping)

(eerie string music)

[Molly] Turns out, it's not such a gray area.

What?

The security camera.

If it's not functioning, you're supposed to shut everything down.

I'm not hearing you right now, I'm not listening.

Sorry boss, if anything goes wrong in there, you are on the hook in a big way.

Just go in there and tell 'em what's up.

They'll understand.

No! (banging)

(crying)

(low, ominous humming music)

I have an idea.

Don't look at me, no, no, look down.

Why?

He's watching us.

I don't wanna tip him off.

We need every advantage we can get, okay?

There's a smoke detector on the ceiling.

I've got my lighter in my pocket.

You told me you quit smoking.

We'll talk about that later.

Yeah.

Okay.

All right, we need to spark the lighter and try and set off the alarm, see if we can get some help in here.

[Jess] Okay.

The problem is, it's right behind him, okay?

So I need you to take the lighter and spark it up.

Are you crazy?

Unless you wanna do what I'm gonna do.

[Jess] What are you gonna do?

I'm gonna be the bait.

Give me the lighter.

Okay, here's what we're gonna do.

(indistinct whispering)

(grunting)


(glass crunching)

Come on, come on, I'm right here.

(chain rattling)

Okay, yeah, come on.

(pulsing, dramatic music)

(screaming)

Jess, hurry up.

Hurry up.

I'm trying.

[Ben] Come on!

(metal clanking)

Jess, come on, push it, push it.

I got it!

[Ben] Jess go, go! (screaming)

(crashing)

[Jess] Are you okay?

Yeah.

(panting)

Why didn't it work?

I don't know.

We're not gonna get another shot.

(somber string music)

I don't wanna die like this.

[Molly] You ever play hockey?

What?

They would this gripping the stick too tight.

What are you talking about?

Gripping the stick too tight, nevermind.

You just need to calm it down.

Shift it back into neutral for a bit.

The tree trunk, that stays put, but the branch leaves, they just, they fall.

I'm losing track of your analogies, Molly.

So am I.

Let's just keep our eye on the eight ball here.

Sorry, I just did it again.

You are driving yourself crazy, over nothing.

Just do the smart thing and stop the game.

It happens.

This one glitch is not gonna kill your entire season, but if anything goes wrong in there...

Oh, just wait, just wait.

I'll pull up the recorded footage and see what it shows.

If anything, we'll see that everything was fine before the feed went dead.

And if so, we'll let them finish the game.

They're getting close to the end anyway.

It doesn't look like anyone's messing with it.

No, not yet, at least.

Woah, is that RJ?

[Molly] What? What the hell is he doing?

Has he never seen a camera before?

More importantly, why the hell is he breaking character, the dumb ass.

(eerie music)

[Molly] Dude, did he just pull the wires out?

Yeah, I think he did.

[Molly] Why would he do that?

No idea.

(clicking)


Come on. (banging)

(grunting)

(chain rattling)


I know that look.

Ben, talk to me.

We can't just keep sitting here.

I'm not gonna go down that easy.

Babe.

Look, he holds the only shot we have of getting out of here in his hand.

What, the coins?

No, forget about them, okay?

The bait worked last time, it's not gonna work again.

[Ben] No, no, no bait this time.

[Jess] What are you gonna do?

I'm gonna go get them.

No.

No, don't even think about it.

Are you out of your mind?

No just look, look, we are out of options.

We need those coins.

And I need you.

As soon as you get them, put them in the slot, and get the key out.

You'll need to move fast.

You mean, we'll have to move fast.

We've lost a lot of time already.

No, I'm not gonna let you do this.

Just, keep a clear head, okay?

You can solve the puzzles.

They're simpler than you think, all right?

You can do this.

No, I can't do it by myself.

You can do this, you can.

(gentle string and piano music)

I love you.

I'll be right back.

(low, ominous music)


(scissors scraping)

That's the only thing you got, huh?

Drop the scissors.

Drop them, fight like a man.

Come on, asshole.

(glass crunching)

Okay, okay.

All right.

(thudding)

(yelling)

(stabbing)

(whacking)

(cracking) (groaning)

(squealing)

Ben!

Ben.

Ben!

Go to hell.

(stabbing) (groaning)

Ben, Ben!

(screaming)

(chain rattling)

Get away from me!

(crying)

(coins clanking)

Why are you doing this?

You're enjoying this, aren't you?

You sick fuck!

(coins clattering)

(chain rattling)


(eerie chiming music)


(objects rattling)

(chain rattling)


(gasping)

Please, please, please, please.

Please, please.

(toy chiming)

Please, please, please, please, please, please, please.

(clown laughing) (whooshing)


(yelling)

Fuck you!

(banging)

(groaning)

(chain rattling)

(suspenseful booming and strings music)


(crying)

I'm really sorry, I didn't wanna have to do this but, (gasping) Help!

Help me! (keys clanking)

(thudding)

Help, get me out of here! (door slamming)

Molly!

Molly!

What the hell?

Call the police. [Molly] Police?

Call the police!

(crying)


Okay, okay, okay.

I can do this.

I can do it, I can do it, I can do it, I can do it.

(indistinct murmuring)

(chain rattling)

(crying)

(screaming)


Okay, okay, okay.

Okay, okay.

(whimpering)

More triangles?

Fuck!

Oh my god.

(banging)

(groaning)

Oh, fuck.

(screaming)


(crying)


(chain rattling)


(scraping)

Not without a fight, fucker.

(gasping)

(screaming)

(eerie, pulsing music)

(voices whispering indistinctly)

Help.

Please.

Help, please.

Just help us now, please.

[Angie] Jess, help.

Jess.

[Jeff] Help.

(whimpering)

What are you?

Get out.

Get out!

Get out!

Get out!

(screaming)

(banging)

(chain rattling)

(screaming)

(eerie electronic pulsing)


(somber vocalizing and strings music)


(guns firing)

(whooshing)

(low suspenseful string music)


(blowing)


(eerie string music)

(siren wailing)


(low suspenseful string music)

(bell ringing)

[Ramona] I see.

You are an acquaintance of...

Brice, yes.

I worked for him, but...

Yes, but.

Thank you for returning it.

I thought if I returned it, it would make things right, bring Brice back.

Oh it's much too late for that, my dear.

The beast has been let out.

Yes.

You've seen it, haven't you?

Up close.

What is it?

I tried to warn him, you understand.

There is true evil out there, evil that is both nameless and timeless, here by means that we do not understand, whose origin we cannot begin to conceptualize, whose purpose, beyond death and suffering, is unknown.

Some people can accept this, some cannot.

Can you?

This demon never forgets a face, and he's seen yours.

He's a patient little devil, this one.

One day, in a week, or a month, or 50 years from now, he may come for you.
