The Hearse (1980) Script

Oh Tanya, thank you.

Have a nice summer, honey.

Bye, darling.

_ Hey-

This is for you traveler.

Oh, thank you.

What is it?

Oh, you shouldn't have.

Well I thought this would be just the thing to take to the boonies.

You're probably right.

Why are you going to a hick town where you don't know a soul for anyhow?

Oh, I don't know.

To be alone for a little while.

Do you really think this is the right time to go?

I mean are you feeling strong enough?

I feel fine, Lois, really.

Fine.

Yeah, but your mom just died and it's only been a few months since your divorce.

You know what?

You sound a lot like my shrink.

He doesn't give me any support either.

Well, George and I would love to have you come to the beach.

A lot of great guys out there.

Let's give me a break.

That's not what I need right now.

Well, no harm in trying.

Oh, I appreciate the offer but I think I'd really like to spend the summer in the old family house.

Alright, I don't want to be a pain.

But if you get lonely or shakey or anything, you give me a call, okay?

I promise.

I'm going to leave tomorrow afternoon and as soon as I get the phone in, I'll call you.

_ okay-

Oh, I'm going to miss you.

Me too.


Why are you so against this?

I'm taking a vacation in the country.

The air is fresh.

The people are friendly and no one knows anything about this last year.

What will you do if they find out?

I'll just tell them the truth, flat out.

Jane Hardy was on the edge.

And she came back.

Now what's so terrible about that?

All I know is that I don't like the pain.

And I want to get away from it.

And away from here.

Well symbols of the pain will be here when you get back, won't they?

I don't know that.

I haven't yet given myself a chance to get away from them to find out.

What if it doesn't work out?

I'll try something else.


Hello, Mr. Pritchard?

Thank goodness.

This is Jane Hardy.

I wrote you about my aunt's house?

I know it's late.

But you could please come down here and give me the keys so I can get into the house?

Well, I'm a little tired too, Mr. Pritchard.

I've had an awfully long drive.

I'm at the Ramona Court...

Uh, will it take you very long to get here, Mr. Pritchard?

No, no, no, no one's trying to rush you.

Okay, okay.

I'll just be waiting for you.

I'm in a red Chevrolet.

Good... bye.


Jane Hardy?

Yes.

I'm Walter Pritchard.

Follow me.


I really appreciate you getting up and letting me in.

Well, you should.

11 o'clock at night, decent people ought to be in bed.

Come on.

Well, what the hell's the matter now?

I don't know.

Just a chill.

There.

Oh what the hell, I told those...

Ha, just as I promised you.

Exactly the way it was when your aunt died 30 some odd years ago.

Your mother hardly ever set foot in here.

It really ought to be mine.

What do you mean?

Well your mother promised it to me.

Probate, legal fees, and a swift for generally looking after the old place for thirty some odd years.

Well I never heard that.

Well, you probably wouldn't admit it if you had.

Here are the keys.

You'll have to drop into my office in a couple days and sign some papers.

That is if you decide to stay here.

Personally, I think you're crazy for wanting to live in this old place.

I'll be by.

Yeah, for sure.

Goodnight, Mr. Pritchard.

And thanks a lot.


Huh...


Hey, lady-

You want a lift?


Not too bad.

Not too bad at all for the first time in 10 months.

Oh!

Telephone company, lady.

Good, I'm glad to see you.

Yeah, Mr. Pritchard, he called yesterday.

Oh, come on in.

I'd have thought if he called yesterday, it would have taken you months to get here.

Oh you don't happen to have one of those pretty powder blue princess models, no?


Okay, here you go.

Thank you.

Anything else?

Yes, could you recommend someone around here who can help me with some handiwork?

Fixing some windows, patching a roof, some things like that.

Well I don't know.

Well how about Bo Rehnquist, dad?

We don't know anybody.

This Rehnquist fellow, is he nearby?

Yeah, about a mile up the road.

He's got a big red house.

That's $27.54.

Cash.

You're kidding?

Cash.

I don't have that much with me.

Could you send it out?

I'm right out on County Road.

Where?

The old Martin place.

I'm Jane Hardy.

My aunt Rebecca used to live there.

We don't deliver that far.

It's just down the road.

Dad, I can do it tomorrow.

I got to down to the Baker's house anyway.

My son will bring it out.

Just this once.

Is everyone is Blackford as friendly as you are?

We're busy, Miss Hardy.

Sure.

Hey, dad.

What was that all about?

It doesn't concern you.

Don't you have work to do?

Yeah, sure.

(Need any he), m' am'?

No, thank you.

I can handle it myself.

Yeah, I can see that from here.

I'm Jack Demon.

I'm sheriff around here.

The old Martin place, right?

Yes, I'm Jane Hardy.

Well Jane, welcome to Blackford.

You plan on staying very long?

Well I'm not exactly sure yet.

Maybe for the summer.

Oh, the rest of the summer, huh?

That's nice.

Hey, I saw you jogging down County Road this morning.

I'm not one to forget a pretty face, if you know what I mean.

I think I know exactly what you mean.

Good bye, sheriff.

Are you Mr. Rehnquist?

I'm Rehnquist, Bo Rehnquist.

My house needs to have some general repairs done to it.

And they told me down at Gordon's hardware store that you might be interested in doing it.

Sounds okay so far.

You live by yourself in a house?

Yes.

Look, I live out on County Road.

The big old house off the road?

Would you start tomorrow?

I don't know any big old houses on County Road.

Yeah, it's the Martin place.

I'll be busy tomorrow.

What's wrong?

I... I'll be busy.

But you did say that you could do the job.

Tomorrow, next week... I'm too busy.

As you are washed in the blood of the land, then you will dwell in the house of the Lord.

Just waiting for the chance.

Yes the Lord...

Will carry you all the way up to those pearly gates.

Nowhere is safe.

Nowhere you can hide from the Devil.

Hey, you made it, didn't you?

Yeah, I got the stuff you ordered.

My dad told me to come out here and collect.

In cash.

_ okay-

I'm Paul.

I'm Jane.

You're a lot friendlier than your folks.

Yeah, well they're kind of weird.

I think everyone around here is weird.

Did you get that handyman you wanted?

Is the job still open?

Yeah, it's wide open.

That Rehnquist guy didn't want it all.

He didn't want to come out to the house.

I think he wanted me to bring the house to him.

Well, I'd kind of like to come out here and work.

Would you really?

Yeah, I can fix anything.

My dad says I'm a natural born Mr. Fix-It.

Do you have experience?

I didn't get these from playing the piano.

You have callouses.

You're hired, Paul.

Alright, I'm so broke.

I can't tell you.

I'm really broke.

Well you're not going to get rich working here.

When you can start?

I've got some stuff to do this afternoon.

How about tomorrow?

Tomorrow's fine.

Start with putting some screens on the upstairs windows.

Check out the roof.

And we'll make out a list of things that we need for your dad to fill.

What's the matter?

I don't think my dad is going to be too thrilled about me hanging out here.

Really?

Why?

Come on, Paul.

Don't you think I have a right to know why everyone around Blackford treats me like I have the plague?

Well...

You don't have to tell me now.

Not until the roof is finished.

You're still hired.

Alright.

(OK3)'-

See you tomorrow.

Paul, aren't you forgetting something?

What?

The money.

The money.

He'd kill me.

I swear to god.

He'd kill me.

Bash my face in.

Rip out my hair.


Mr. Pritchard, would you just lay it on the line.

Is the house mine or not?

My dear Miss Hardy, of course you own it.

I'm talking here of probate, finalizing the will, your taking possession.

All of these things take time.

Why the hell are you stalling me?

Now don't you be insolent with me.

The finalized papers, Mr. Pritchard.

When will they be ready?

They will be ready when I get them.

This is not a big city you know.

In a few days, I suppose.

Fine.

Oh, Miss Hardy, have you met our sheriff, Jack Denton?

Yes, we've already met.

Well not really.

Just in passing.

You know, Miss Hardy, on the way in I noticed a fresh dent in your fender there.

Have you been in an accident recently?

You know you're supposed to report that sort of thing to the police.

I backed into a tree.

Really, Miss Hardy?

Trees jumping from behind every bush.

You never know what's going to happen around here these days.

I should have warned you.

You must be careful on all these old back country roads.

I'll see you in two days, Mr. Pritchard.

You know, Jack.

I have a feeling that girl is not very long for this town.

Yeah, Walter.

I know exactly what you mean.


Miss Hardy, please.

Oh, you scared the hell out of me.

I should probably take that as a compliment.

(Flaughs)

I'm Reverend Winston.

I'm the minister at the Blackford Church.

Forgive me, please.

Come in to the living room.

I heard you on the radio the other day, didn't I?

Yes.

You know we tape those shows right here at the church.

Would you like to come by one Sunday?

Reverend, I haven't been to church since I was a child.

Well, church is the tallest building in town.

So if you ever need anything, stop on by.

Welcome to Blackford, Jane.

Thank you.

How do you like our town so far?

Well, the people are not exactly friendly.

But then I'm told it's because of this house.

Why all the standoffishness?

Perhaps it's your imagination.

And you're new.

An outsider.

Well, they're just going to have to get used to me, aren't they?

Maybe the country's not the right place for you.

Got to be going, thanks.

A lovely woman.

You look a lot like her.

Thank you.

Goodnight, Jane.

Goodnight, reverend.

Hope to see you in church soon.

Perhaps.


Sunday, this is a wonderful day.

Louis and I have finally, after two years, set our wedding date.

October 3rd.

The following day Louis will preach his first sermon at the new church in Oak Blocks.

I'll miss Blackford and this lovely house.

But Louis is a man any woman would be proud to have.

And a minister's wife is called upon to follow her husband.


Well, hello there.

What's your name?

Alice.

But my mommy told me not to say hello to you.

Now why would she tell you that?

Because you live in the funny house.

I live in a funny house, do I?

What's so funny about my house?

It's haunted and you're a ghost.


Miss?

Are you alright?

Sullivan, Tom Sullivan.

Are you sure you didn't see that big black car?

No, but then I had just turned onto County Road.

Oh, that light.

I'm positive I turned it off before I left.

Would you mind walking me to the door?

Certainly.

You really don't have to wait.

I want to.

Make yourself comfortable in the living room.

I'll go upstairs and I'll be down in a minute.


It was nothing.

I guess the wiring's just shot in this house.

That's a photograph of my aunt.

She was a beautiful woman.

You have her eyes.

Oh, do you think so?

Would you like something to drink?

I have wine, tea, coffee.

No, thank you.

I've really got to go.

Well thank you for everything.

It's my pleasure.

I'll see to it that your car gets back home.

Oh no, please don't bother.

I'll call a tow truck.

I insist.

Besides it'll give me an opportunity to see you again, Jane.

Alright, well I'm certainly glad you showed up when you did.

Good night.


September 19th.

A stranger came to the house today.

His name is Robert.

He was very polite and we sat on the porch and talked for hours.

He was very handsome and anyone could see he was well bred.

I'm a little ashamed that I let him hold my hand.

But there seemed no harm in it.

I'm powerless to stop it.

There's something strange and wonderful about him.

He brought me a gift.

A beautiful locket with an unusual symbol on it.

September 21st, can it be true?

After two days, I write these words with a mixture of fear and joy.

I'm in love with Robert.

I cannot help myself.

Today I gave myself to him completely.

I'm alive at the sound of his voice, the touch of his hand.

He is the master of my body.

How can I tell Louis?

That I can never marry him because I have met another man.


Get away from here.

Get out of here, I have a gun.


Tom, I didn't hear you come up.

Oh you brought my car.

Thank you.

You have company today?

Oh just a local boy.

I hired him to help me around the house.

Would you like to come in for a few minutes?

Thanks just the same.

But not now.

Jane, what's the matter?

Somebody broke into the house last night.

I don't know what it is but there's something strange going on andljustcanT put my finger on it.

Nothing happened to you, did it?

No, I'm fine.

It's just I'm a little scared.

Let's go out tonight, Jane.

Maybe you need to relax.

I'd love to get out.

Eight o'clock.

Good.

Should I dress?

Whatever you wear will be fine.

Tom, do you want me to give you a lift?

No.

It'll be no trouble at all.

I'll see you tonight.


Just a minute.

I'm coming.

Hello?

Hi.

Come in.

Oh, look at those.

I picked these at my place.

Tom, they're beautiful.

I'll just put them in this.

There we are.

That'll be the first thing I see when I come in.

Well how nice.

Shall we?

Where are we going?

I have a little surprise for you.

Oh?

Why did you come to Blackford, Jane?

I wanted to try and find some place where I could relax.

And when my mother died and left me my aunt's old house, I decided to come here.

I was married up until a few months ago.

When my marriage ended, I nearly cracked up.

It was something I never believed could happen to me.

I was very sick for a while but things are better now.

What about yourself?

Are you married?

No.

Do you live in Blackford?

Yes.

Tom look, over there.

What?

There's somebody following us.

Over there.

Did you see that light?

You'd better sit down.

It's probably kids.

That's County Road and a notorious lover's lane.

I'm not so sure.

Seems every time we meet, I'm afraid of something or I think someone's following me.

Is someone after you?

I don't know.

Maybe I'm imagining things.

It's so quiet and peaceful here.

I wish I could just stay here forever.

The only thing that lasts forever is true love.

Even after death.

That's beautiful, Tom.

Shouldn't we be getting back to the real world soon?

I don't want my aunt to see me coming in late.

I'm only kidding.

Thank you, Tom, for a lovely evening.

Would you like to come by tomorrow for lunch?

I'd love to.

Wonderful.

About one o'clock?

Yes.

I hope you'll stay here with us for a while.

I just might do that.

See you tomorrow.

Goodnight, Tom.

I went into Blackford today and told Louis I could not marry him because I love someone else.

He cursed me and accused me of having been secretly in love with Robert all along.

I didn't deny it.

I am obsessed.

Making love to Robert was at once joyful and terrifying.

I have no control.

If Robert ever left me, I would die.

How simple things were before Robert came into my life.

I love him and fear him at the same time.

I fear his power over me and I know I will do anything he asks.


I know now what Robert wants from me.

He has admitted that he's involved in something I never suspected.

It's almost impossible for me to believe.

But it is true.

He wants me to join him in a pact with Satan.

What the hell do you want?

What do you want?

Get away from me.

Get away from here.


Now Lois, I'm sorry I told you about this.

I don't want you to be upset.

It was definitely a dream.

Just a dream.

Took me hours to calm myself down but I'm okay now.

Listen, I met somebody.

Yeah, he's from around here.

His name is Tom.

Well, he's kind of old-fashioned.

Very pleasant.

It's kind of strange.

I'm very drawn to him.

It's as though I've known him all my life.

Well, now don't go overboard.

You'll be the first one to know if that happens.

Alright.

Well I'm glad I reached you.

Alright I Will.

I'll talk to you in the next couple days.

Take care.

Alright, bye bye.

You're not getting any action off her.

Well I think I got a lot farther than you guys think.

Uh yeah?

You ain't got nowhere.

She kissed me.

Hi.

Hi Paul, how are you today?

Oh yeah, I got the stuff you wanted.

You know I'll get the rest of the pipe as soon as my dad gets it fitted.

And then you know, I'll bring it out this afternoon.

Oh listen, about today Paul, you don't have to bother coming out.

I have a friend coming over and well, quite frankly, I had a rough time last night and I'd just as soon catch up on a little sleep this afternoon.

What happened?

Someone break into your house?

Oh no, no.

I just haven't been sleeping too well lately.

Tomorrow will be fine, okay?

Okay yeah, I'll see you then.

See you tomorrow.

Yeah, I'll see you tomorrow.

Take care.

Okay, 'We-

Bye_

Ooh, she is something else.


Why Miss Hardy, what a pleasant surprise.

You're a bit early for Sunday but...

That woman.

Miss Percy?

Why she's our choir mistress.

Do you know her?

I'm positive she was in a dream I had last night.

She was right here in the church.

Indeed she was, until around seven.

But I'm so sure.

The mind can play many tricks on us, Jane.

I feel something's troubling you.

I'd like to help, if you'll let me.

Thank you, Reverend.

That's very kind of you.

But not right now.

By the way, that locket, where did you get it?

Oh it belonged to my aunt.

I wouldn't show it to too many people, if I were you.

It's the devil's sign.

You're not in league with Satan are you?

No, no.

Thank you for telling me, reverend.

Thank you.

Anytime.

Well it all started happening when I began reading the diary.

First the nightmares, if indeed they were nightmares.

Then the church.

You don't suppose that this locket could have anything to do with it, do you?

Or do you just think I'm crazy?

No, I don't think you're crazy.

This locket is a beautiful, old heirloom.

And that's all.

Most of the people in Blackford would love to see you give up and go away.

You're not going to let them chase you out of here, are you?

I'm hoping you'll stay around for a while.

Maybe I will.

Good evening, Jane.

What are you doing here?

I brought the probate papers.

How did you get in?

I rang the bell.

Nobody answered so I used my key.

How dare you?

You remind me of your late aunt.

How are things going?

Made any friends in town lately?

You know damn well how the people around here feel about me.

So I do.

Well then perhaps you'd tell me why if you know half as much as you pretend to.

Oh I know a lot more than that.

I know what your aunt did here too.

You don't seem to be surprised at what I'm going to say.

Go on.

She worshiped the devil.

I know that.

She and that boyfriend of hers Robert were very badly thought of around Blackford, very badly thought of to the day she died.

Do you know how she died?

Oh no no, nobody knows how she died.

Everybody knows about the accident.

I remember hearing about that when I was little.

Then you know about the hearse.

You maybe even...

What the hell are you talking about?

I'm talking about the hearse that carried your aunts body.

It crashed on the Blackford bridge.

It exploded into flames and all that was left was a charred mass of metal.

Stranger than that, there was no sign of the driver.

Or the your aunt's coffin.

That Robert fellow, he just disappeared.

Come on, Pritchard.

Well in the paper they called it some sort of freak accident.

But I'm not so sure about that.

What aren't you so sure about?

Well some people say that the devil himself reached up and grabbed that hearse and dragged it down to the fiery depths of hell

and it's still roaming the old county road in search of victims.

You bastard.

It's been you all along.

Now I don't know anything about that accident.

But I do know that you're the one that's been driving that hearse.

What are you talking about?

Oh you know damn well what I'm talking about.

And I'm not going to let you push me around anymore.

Please get out of my house.

You ought to see a doctor.

You're beginning to imagine things.

Goodnight, Mr. Pritchard.

Goodnight, Jane.

Pleasant dreams.


Well I'm up for the night.


Help me quickly.

Now hold on a second.

Somebody's trying to kill me.

What's that?

Please, he's after me.

Help me.

Hey, we've got something over here.

Well isn't this Jane.

Sheriff, quickly, somebody's trying to kill me.

Uh yeah?

Oh no, come.

This is getting to be quite a popular sport around here.

Open season on good looking city girls.

Jack, you dumb son of a bitch, I'm telling you the truth.

Hey that's mighty strong language lady.

You're asking for trouble talking like that.

Five minutes ago, sheriff, somebody tried to kill me in my house.

Now are you going to come and do something about it or not?

These city woman are goddamn crazy, you know that?

Oh god.


Oh god, it's happening all over again.

Please, dear god, I won't be able to live through it again.

Hello?

Hello in there.

See there's the drawer.

I left it open last night when I ran out.

Come on, you'll see.

I swear, he drove his hand right through that door.

All I see here Jane is nothing so much out of the ordinary and exactly what I expected to see.

You had a nightmare.

Produced by all that talk of the occult in the diary.

I'm not crazy.

I'm not.

I said nightmare, Jane.

Now you're not going to let some dreams get to you, are you?

You're stronger than that.

I guess so.

Good.

Good.

Jane you have got to rely on yourself.

No dreams, no devils.

Look to yourself, Jane, and then look to God.

You may be right.

But what it was so goddamned real.

Damn real, but still all in your mind.

Oh why hello, Paul.

Haven't seen you in church lately, have I?

Well I've been sick.

Yes, I'm sure.

Goodbye, Jane.

Take care of yourself.

Remember, be strong.

I'll try.

Thank you.

I didn't know he made house calls.

This was a special occasion.

Speaking of appointments, don't you have one on the roof?

Yeah, I brought you this.

It's beautiful.

There.

It's just perfect.

I hope you like it.

You don't know how much.

Thank you, Paul.

Now, come on.

I bet you can't get the roof done by sundown.

I bet you I can.

Hey looks like lover boy's back.

Let's see how he did.

Hi guys.

Hey whoa whoa whoa.

So how did it go, hot shot?

Did you get any?

I don't think that any of your business, guys.

That's not a very nice way to talk, is it?

I did alright, you know.

Well come on.

Sort of.

Well what do you mean sort of?

I mean you either did or you didn't, right?

You're all talk.

Well we made out.

Bullshit.

Did she have her clothes off?

Well kinda.

You really go to her, huh?

I bet you were hard as a pistol.

Yeah, better believe it, yeah.

Okay, nice chatting with you.

See you.

Oh my god.


Oh what are you doing down here?

I saw the lights go out as I drove up.

I thought you might be in trouble.

Who me?

And then when Reverend Winston convinced me that it was a nightmare, I really felt like killing myself.

You're a very strong woman, Jane.

It's good to see you like this.

Most women I know would have been gone by now.

Well, out here I'm learning, for the first time, how to take care of myself.

It feels good.

It feels great.

If I don't get myself killed in the process.

You're beautiful when you laugh.

Would you like some coffee?

Yes, sure.

Oh don't bother with that.

I'll take care of it.

No, it's not problem.

Robert talks of nothing else now.

I can't bear the thought of our ever being separated.

He believes we can live forever.

Even beyond death, if I agree as he has to do Satan's bidding.

I'm being torn apart by my love for him.

And this terrible choice he has asked me to make.

But what can I do?

And that's it.

That's the last entry she made before she died.

Incredible.

To live forever.

Do you believe a thing like that could happen?

No, but in some deranged diabolical way, Robert convinced my aunt that it could.

Suppose it could happen, Jane.

Suppose you could live forever.

Span the ages.

Wouldn't that be worth everything?

I don't know.

You're not serious, are you?

Of course, I believe in all that stuff.

I was getting carried away again, wasn't I?

I guess it's all the things that have been happening.

What it amounts to is one woman alone in a lonely house with a very vivid imagination, sometimes too active an imagination.

Tom!

There she is.

That's the witch.

There are your spooks.

Witch witch.

Oh, no.

Witch witch.

Apparently I have quite a reputation.

Even among the younger set in town.

You do live in the local haunted house.

And I plan to stay here.

Kids, do you believe it?

And here I thought that scarred face man was coming back to get me.

I don't think you'll be seeing him anymore.

Neither do I.

Tom, would you like to come back for dinner again?

When?

Would tomorrow night be too soon?

I'd love to.


Up late last night, huh?

Oh a little yes.

Would you like some coffee?

Uh no thanks, I just ate.

Have a good time last night?

Yeah, pretty good.

Out with that Tom guy.

You must like him, huh.

Yeah, I like him, huh.

Did he stay here last night?

I don't think that's any of your business, Paul.

So, how are things at the store?

Oh same old thing.

Kind of boring.

I was wondering if you wanted to, felt like, maybe we could go see a movie tonight.

We'd have to drive a few hundred miles but it'd be great.

I'm sorry, Paul.

I'm busy tonight.

You're busy tonight?

Mmhmm.

You going outwith Tom?

As a matter of fact, yes.

Geez.

Oh, dammit.

I'm sorry.

It's okay.

Now listen, Paul, the last thing in the world that I want to do is to hurt you.

You know that, don't you?

Come on now.

Yeah, I understand.

I'm a little young.

But you're not too young for us to still be friends.

Yeah.

Sorry about the vase.

Don't worry about it.

Well look if that Tom guy doesn't work out,

I'm going to be back here in a couple years to give him a run for his money.

I like you Jane, a lot.

Where were you when I was 16 years old?

Nevermind, don't answer that.

I don't want to know.

I better get back to work.

I'll see you soon.

Bye, PauL

I'll call you right back.

I know you see me, Mr. Pritchard, so you might just as well look up.

Good afternoon, Miss Hardy, and good bye.

I am very busy.

I simply haven't got time...

I've signed the papers.

I'm staying in Blackford.

I trust you'll still need to put the house on the market when you leave in the fall.

I might not be leaving in the fall.

What the hell are you talking about?

Well I simply haven't made up my mind yet.

Well I'm damned if you do.

Afew days ago, I heard you were so damn scared, I thought I'd never see you again.

Now you're talking about living here.

There are the papers.

When are you going to get them filed?

This is late Friday afternoon.

I'm not about to be going over to the county seat.

I'll get around to them on Monday, well, maybe Tuesday.

Monday.

Seems to me you're acting damn cocky.

What the hell's going on here?

Nothing.

I ran into that young Gordon boy that you hired, Paul.

Took the liberty of asking him a few questions.

My personal life is none of your business.

Paul seemed, well, completely bent out of shape.

Something about another man named Tom?

Pritchard, why don't you just climb into the back of that silly old hearse of yours and drop dead.


Sullivan, S U L L IVA N, Thomas.

That's right.

Are you sure?

Well maybe it's an unlisted number.

No.

Okay, thank you, operator.

Tom, I was wondering what...

(flaughs)

Lois.

Yes, I was expecting someone else.

Well that fellow I was telling you about.

Busy, going out of my mind.

I don't know.

It's just something about this place.

Something.

The man with the scar again.

I know, everyone says that.

Maybe it was a dream.

As a matter of fact, he was supposed to be here for dinner right now.

Oh Lois, that would be wonderful.

Any weekend would be fine.

As a matter of fact.

Lois?

Hello?


Run on, run on you.

House robbing, grave robbing, city bitch.

You want ghosts?

I'll give you ghosts.

Tom, Tom, where are you?

Hey, give an old man a lift.

Hey!

Lift for an old ghost.

Son of a bitch, I'll get you too.

Anybody there?

Anybody there?


Jane?

Jane?

Jane?

Jane?


Tom?

Are you in there?


Tom?


No.

No, no, no.

Paul?


Jane.


Hello, Jane.

Get away from me.

Get away.

I've been waiting, Jane.

I've waited a long time.

There is no Tom.

Come with me.

There is only Robert.

Paul?

Paul...

Oh god, no.

Not the child.

No.

Jane.

I love you.

Don't fight me, Jane.

No.

What about the boy?

The old man.

It doesn't matter.

I can give you eternal life.

Our love just as we are.

Forever.

Jane, I love you.

I need you.


This is madness.

It's not happening.

It's not possible.

Jane.

It is possible.

Your aunt Rebecca was weak.

She was afraid.

We can do it.

We can have our love forever.

Satan, get thee behind me.

And cast thy servants back into hell.

Jane!

You can't fight him alone.


You're not going to get me.

You're not going to get me.

You're not, you're not.


Damn you.

Damn you.
