FADE IN: EXT. LOCAL HIGHWAY IN INNER CITY OF CRYSTAL LAKE - DAY Devon Turner, a former resident of Crystal Lake, is in her vehicle driving down the road with coffee in hand as her 11 year old son, Billy, plays with his video game in the front seat beside her. As she continues driving down the road, she passes a sign that says Welcome to Crystal Lake Community. She appears to be in observation of her surroundings as if it has been a long time since she was last there. As she makes a left-hand turn, she immediately takes notice to an old abandoned house sitting on the corner of the street down on the right. As she pulls the car to a stop right in front of the house, she pauses for a moment as she takes in the view and then turns the car off. BILLY (taking notice to the house) Wow, Mom. So, that's where you grew up? DEVON (looking at Billy) Yeah, it sure is. Looks a little run down, huh? BILLY (still looking at house) Yeah. It looks a little scary too. Not to mention that it is that close to a cemetary. Devon looks around Billy as she glances out towards the cemetery. DEVON Oh, you don't have to worry about anything with that. Those people have been dead for years. BILLY Yeah, right, Mom. DEVON (nudging Billy as she giggles) Come on. Let's go check it out. Devon and Billy both get out of the car with Devon never taking her eyes off of the house. As she closes her car door and starts walking towards the front door of the house with Billy not far behind her, she notices some movement at the front door as if it is slowly opening. As she gets halfway to the door, it slowly opens further as a slim woman steps out to greet her. ROBIN (extending her hand) Hello. I am so glad you could make it. My name is Robin. Devon grabs her hand and shakes it. DEVON Yes, thank you. This is my son, Billy. ROBIN (looking at Billy) Well, hi, Billy. It's nice to meet you. BILLY Thanks, you too. ROBIN (giggling as she puts her hands together) Well, welcome back to the old Turner house. Shall we take a look inside? Robin steps to the side to allow Devon and Billy entrance into the house. INT. OLD TURNER HOUSE - DEVON'S CHILDHOOD HOME - DAY As Devon slowly walks in, she takes careful notice to everything around her. ROBIN Ms. Nichols, I just want to offer my condolences. I know you and your family have gone through a lot within the past few years. DEVON (looking at Robin) Oh, thank you. That really means a lot. And please, call me Devon. ROBIN (smiling) Sure. Billy stands still as he observes the view above him with his mouth wide open. Devon takes the liberty to glance into the great room where old furniture remains, into the study and then upstairs. ROBIN Well, why don't you two go take a look around. You should be quite familiar with it. Devon slowly begins to walk upstairs as Billy closely follows. BILLY Why is there still stuff in the house? DEVON (still walking up the stairs) Well, after your grandfather passed away, I guess it was decided that all of the stuff left behind remained with the house. BILLY Oh. Creepy. DEVON (laughing) Creepy or not, this is your new home. Robin stands still as she watches both Devin and Billy ascend up the stairs. ROBIN Is there anything else I can do for you before I leave? DEVON (looking over the railing) No, thank you. You've been great. I've got your number should I need you. ROBIN Wonderful. I'll just leave you two to it. Robin's smile quickly turns to a frown as she turns her back and heads towards the front door to leave. As she reaches the door, she lets out a sigh as she looks back towards the staircase with a look of distress and then again turns to leave. Once upstairs, Devon slowly makes her way (with Billy in tow) down the hall. She takes notice to a picture hanging on the wall of an intelligent looking teenage boy. She immediately stops and stares at the picture. BILLY (noticing Devon's stare) Mom? Devon immediately breaks her stare. DEVON (looking at Billy) Yes, Honey? BILLY Who is that? Is that him? DEVON (looking back at picture) Yes, Billy, that is your uncle. Billy slowly walks over to the picture to take a closer look. As he approaches the picture, he takes notice to his uncle's eyes. Within one quick glance, it looks as if the eyes of his uncle look straight at him as he quickly jumps back. DEVON Billy? Are you okay? BILLY (rubbing his eyes) Yeah, I'm fine. I guess I'm just seeing things, that's all. Devon continues walking down the hall, with Billy right beside her, as she immediately takes notice to a bedroom that has been pad-locked shut. BILLY (approaching the door) How weird. Why would somebody do that? DEVON I don't know. That was actually your uncle's old room. We'll just have to check it out later. Billy flips the lock up as he and Devon remain standing in front of the door. A loud knocking at the front door causes both Devon and Billy to jump. DEVON Come on, let's head downstairs. That's probably the movers. We have a lot of work to do. Devon places her arm around Billy as they smile and head towards the stairs. As Billy is seen jumping down the stairs, as to jump over every other step with Devon right behind him, he finally reaches the floor and runs to open the door. As he opens the door, he takes notice to a very attractive and nicely dressed blonde lady standing before him. BILLY (looking at lady) Uh, Mom, I don't think this lady is a mover. Devon walks up behind Billy, continuously looking at the woman is if in awe. Billy looks up at Devon as she stands behind him and then excuses himself outside past the lady. DEVON Oh, my gosh. Lisa? The lady smiles and nods her head. LISA Yes, Devon, it's me. Both Devon and Lisa embrace. LISA (pulling away with her hands on Devon's shoulders) When did you get back into town? DEVON Just today. LISA Wow, I must say that word travels quick, especially in this little town. DEVON Yeah, no doubt. Would you like to come in? I have to say it's not very presentable but you're more than welcome, if you like. LISA Sure. Devon steps aside and allows Lisa to slowly enter the house. As she walks in, she immediately observes her surroundings. LISA Wow, this brings back memories. DEVON (again taking in her surroundings) Yes, it does. A loud banging noise is heard coming from outside as both Lisa and Devon look out the door. BILLY (O.S.) Mom, the movers are here. LISA (laughing) Well, I know what you'll be busy doing tonight. Devon and Lisa look at each other as Devon responds with a nudge and a smile. INT. TURNER HOUSE - NIGHT Loud laughter is heard as the view of the camera slowly goes from the foyer of the house into the great room where Devon and Lisa are sitting on the floor, surrounded by boxes, and drinking a glass of wine. LISA I know, but can you imagine the look on his face when he was finally caught? DEVON Yes, remember I was there so I did see the look on his face when he was caught. Devon and Lisa laugh simultaneously for a brief moment. An immediate hush comes over them as Lisa begins to talk. LISA Devon, I am so sorry for everything you've had to endure within the past couple of years. I really wish I could have been there more for you. DEVON (sighing) You've done enough. Really, it's okay. I think, for me, it was just a matter of getting away for awhile. LISA Yeah, I can imagine. From your brother mysteriously disappearing, your mom and dad both dying from a heart attack in the same fashion within a few months apart to your divorce, I just don't know how you manage. I know you have a lot of guts in even considering moving back home, a little on, doing it. Devon looks down as if to pause in grief. LISA However, you have been given a chance to start fresh and create a new beginning for yourself. DEVON (looking back up) Yeah, I know. If only I can do it. LISA You can. There's a lot of people in this town that support you, including me. You know that if you ever need anything, you can call me at anytime, right? DEVON (smiling) Yeah, I know. I appreciate it. LISA Well, the reminiscing has really been nice, for the time being, but I know you would probably like to catch some sleep before the morning so I guess I better be going. Lisa places her glass on the table behind her and stands up. LISA (walking towards the door) I'll give you a call sometime tomorrow and maybe we can tackle some of these boxes. DEVON Yeah, that would be great. A loud thump is heard upstairs as both women look up towards the ceiling and then back at each other. DEVON (shaking her head) That kid. He would stay up at all hours of the night if I would let him. Lisa laughs and turns to head towards the door. As she reaches the door, she turns and gives Devon a hug. LISA I'll see you tomorrow, alright? Get you some sleep. Lisa smiles as she turns to leave. Devon stands at the door and watches her as she gets in her car. Devon then slowly closes the door and turns to go upstairs. INT. TURNER HOUSE-DEVON'S BEDROOM-LATER DURING SAME - NIGHT Devon lies motionless in her bed. As she sleeps, a loud knocking noise comes from just outside her door in the dark. As she remains still, a shadowy figure slowly begins to enter the room. A scaly, red-colored like figure in the form of a man, with only torso viewable on screen, slowly makes its way through the door. As it moves to the foot of the bed, while continuously making a groaning noise, it stops and stands still. With backside of torso only viewable on screen, it stands still for just a few seconds as Devon sleeps. The figure again slowly begins to move to the side of the bed. As it stands there groaning, it extends its hand (sporting long, skinny fingers and nails resembling claws) and gently touches Devon on her forehead. As she starts to slowly move, the figure quickly begins to fade into mid-air. Devon slowly begins to come to. She abruptly leans up in the bed as she frantically begins to breathe heavily, while placing her hand on her chest. She reaches over to turn on her lamp and immediately looks around her room. She then falls back into the headboard, heavily padded by pillows, as she grabs the remote from her nightstand and turns on the T.V. DEVON (shaking her head as she looks around) Well, this is the life. INT. TURNER HOUSE - ONE WEEK LATER - DAY Devon is walking towards the front door, preparing to leave. TITLE OVER: ONE WEEK LATER As she opens the door and pauses to look in her purse for her keys, she quickly glances up and beholds a man standing right in front of her. She immediately jumps back and drops her keys on the floor. RONNIE (bending down to pick up her keys) I am so sorry to startle you. Are you okay? DEVON (taking keys from Ronnie) No, it's fine. Do I know you? RONNIE (smiling) Yes, Devon. It's Ronnie. Remember me? I was a childhood friend of your brother's. DEVON Ronnie? RONNIE (extending his hand) Yes, how are you? I really wanted to come by, offer my condolences and welcome you back home. DEVON (shaking Ronnie's hand) I haven't seen you in quite some time. Of course, I've been gone for about five years. Do you still live here? RONNIE Yeah, I kind of made my self scarce for various reasons. I did always have a crush on you though. DEVON Oh, really? How did you know who I was? RONNIE Oh, sorry. I saw it on your key chain. DEVON (looking at her key chain) Oh. RONNIE And not to mention the fact that you haven't changed a bit. DEVON (smiling) Yeah, right. RONNIE Yeah, your brother and I really started getting close after you left. We became almost like brothers. I'm just heart broken over what has happened. DEVON (bowing her head as she sighs) Yeah, we all are. RONNIE Look, I'm sorry I didn't mean any harm. I can see that you're in a hurry so I'll let you go. Maybe we can meet back up at a later time and catch up on some old stories? DEVON Yeah, I would like that. Devon just stares at Ronnie as Billy comes running down the stairs behind her. He runs up behind Devon, looks up at Ronnie in question and then runs past him out the door. DEVON How about I give you call within the next couple of days or so and maybe we can get together then? RONNIE Yeah, I would really like that. Oh, here's my number. Ronnie digs in his pocket for a business card and hands it to Devon. DEVON (looking at the card) So, you own your own clothing store? RONNIE Yeah, the business has actually been in my family for years. Maybe you can come by and check it out sometimes? We're located on the corner of Crestview and Main. DEVON Yeah, maybe I'll do that sometime. RONNIE (smiling) Great. We'll I guess I'll talk to you soon. Bye. Ronnie nods his head in respect as he turns to leave. After a brief pause, Devon shakes her head as she smiles and takes her keys to lock the door behind her. INT. DEVON'S PLACE OF EMPLOYMENT - SAME - DAY Devon walks into an office, papers in hand, and is immediately confronted. MEGAN Oh, my gosh. There she is. Megan approaches Devon and gives her a hug as Devon reciprocates with the one hand she has available. MEGAN How have you been? DEVON (nodding her head) I think I'll make it. How about you? MEGAN Oh, girl, you know me. I take it one day at a time. Today, I think I'll make it. Devon begins to laugh as she approaches a desk, sporting a name tag with her name on it, and lays her papers down as Megan walks up behind her. MEGAN So, am I going to need to show you the ropes again? DEVON No, I think I'll be alright. Devon sits down in her chair and lets out a huge sigh. MEGAN Are you sure you're going to be okay? You look like you didn't sleep a wink last night. DEVON (sighing) I don't know. I just had a strange dream last night. I'm telling you, it was the weirdest thing. It was almost as if I could feel a presence in my room, even while I was asleep. When I woke up, though, there was absolutely nobody there. MEGAN Wow. What did you do? Did you just go back to sleep? DEVON Well, yeah, I mean I watched T.V. for a short while after that but then I practically had to force myself to get some sleep. And then, to top that off, Ronnie Bishop shows up at my house this morning acting very strangely. MEGAN The Ronnie Bishop from years ago? DEVON Yes. He told me that he had some new information about my brother that he felt inclined to discuss with me prior to going to the authorities. MEGAN Really? You need to get out of that old house. That's just too creepy. You may end up being targeted by God only knows who. I thought the city was going to have that house condemned anyway. DEVON Yeah, but I had to salvage it. It's my home. That house is the only remaining connection I have to my family. MEGAN I understand that, but the memories it contains are only heart-wrenching. Don't you think that to rid yourself of such atrocities and only hold dear in your heart the good memories would better the situation? DEVON And that would be accomplished how? MEGAN (sighing as she shrugs her shoulders) Time, I guess. No one can truly empathise with you. You do have a very unique situation on your hands. I just wish I could do more for you. DEVON Yeah. I appreciate everybody's concern but I think this is something I am just going to have to work through on my own. MEGAN Yeah, you're probably right. However, on a lighter note, when are we going to go out? DEVON (laughing) I'll keep you informed. Let me get settled back in first. MEGAN Sure. Anyway, let me know if you have any questions and I'll leave you to it. DEVON Yeah, thanks. I appreciate it. Megan smiles as she turns to leave. Devon looks down at her desk, with papers already piled up, and shakes her head as she starts going through the stack. EXT. CRYSTAL LAKE COMMUNITY STREET WALK- LATER SAME - DAY Billy is walking down the sidewalk, along with a friend, heading home after school. MICKEY (FRIEND) Are you serious? That's just creepy. BILLY Yeah, I know, tell me about it. And I have to live there. MICKEY Is your mom keeping all of the stuff that was left in the house? BILLY I don't know. I hope not. My uncle's old room is even locked shut. We can't even get in it. MICKEY Really? How weird. What do you think is in there? BILLY I don't know, but I'm kind of scared to find out. MICKEY Didn't your uncle disappear? BILLY (sighing) Yeah, about a year ago. MICKEY And nobody has heard anything since then? BILLY Nope. Billy cuts Mickey off as he heads towards the house. MICKEY (standing still) Where are you going? BILLY Home. As Billy walks up to the front door, Mickey just stands in awe while looking at the house. BILLY (turning around to address Mickey) Well, aren't you coming? MICKEY This is your house? That close to that creepy cemetery? BILLY Yes. What were you expecting after what I've told you? It's not going to be the Holiday Inn. MICKEY Yeah, but geez. Mickey cautiously walks up to the house as Billy unlocks the door and enters. Mickey walks up to the door, turns to look around the neighborhood and then slowly enters. INT. DEVON'S PLACE OF EMPLOYMENT - SAME - DAY Devon is sitting at her desk. She looks at her watch and lets out a long sigh. Megan is seen walking up. MEGAN Well, how did it go? DEVON (smiling facetiously) Well, besides the fact that on my first day I was handed a bottomless pit of paperwork, fine I guess. MEGAN (laughing) It'll be okay. You were given the worse end of the deal. All the better to break you in, I guess. We'll reconvene tomorrow. Why don't you go home and get you some rest. DEVON Yeah, sounds like a plan. Devon starts gathering up her paperwork, preparing to go home. INT. TURNER HOUSE - SAME - DAY Mickey is standing in the foyer, taking his surroundings all in as Billy walks up to him from the living area. BILLY Here's you some water. Do you want to go up to my room? MICKEY (looking up the stairs) Your room is up there? BILLY (laughing) Yeah. Stop being such a baby. Come on. Mickey follows closely behind Billy as they walk up the stairs. MICKEY And how long have you been here? BILLY About a week. That's why we still have a lot of things in boxes. MICKEY Hm. Both Billy and Mickey pass the padlocked room on their way to Billy's room. Mickey immediately stops and takes notice to the lock. As he observes the lock, he notices that it has been unlocked. MICKEY I thought you said that you hadn't been able to get this door unlocked. BILLY (turning to look at Mickey) We haven't. Why? Mickey moves the lock to show that it was unlocked. BILLY Oh, my gosh. Billy walks up to the door and stares straight at Mickey. BILLY Well, what do you think? Are you willing to go in? MICKEY After you. Billy pulls out the padlock and opens the latch. He then slowly pushes the door open. As the door slowly swings open, he peers inside the room. The view of the room portrays two mattresses sitting on bed rails, one boarded up window and three boxes sitting in front of a desk. MICKEY (looking at the mattress) Is that a blood stain? BILLY (also looking at mattress) No, surely not. I'm sure someone just spilled some red kool-aid or something. No big deal. MICKEY Hm. BILLY (looking around) Well, this isn't so bad. MICKEY Yeah, not quite what I expected to find. The boys slowly walk in. Mickey walks over to the boxes to take a look as Billy, after laying the padlock on the bed, stands and watches. As Mickey flips up the top of the box, he looks in and pulls out a Ouija board tucked away in its box. BILLY Oh, Man, I've heard about those things. Maybe we should just leave and lock the room back up. MICKEY Oh, now whose being scared? BILLY I'm not scared, just being cautious. Don't those things call out the devil or something? MICKEY Oh, come on, it's just a game. Do you want to try it? BILLY (sighing) Yeah, sure, why not. Mickey takes the box containing the Ouija board and sits it on the ground. Billy sits down on the opposite side as they pull out the pieces. MICKEY (holding the marker up) So, what do you think this is for? BILLY I think you're supposed to sit it on the board and spell out things with it. Mickey places the marker on the board. The boys sit Indian-style opposite each other as they sit and wait. MICKEY Well, what are we supposed to be spelling? BILLY I don't know. Look in the box and see if there's any instructions. Mickey turns and grabs the box as the marker immediately flies under the bed. BILLY Oh, my gosh. Why don't you watch what you're doing? MICKEY What are you talking about? I didn't hit anything. BILLY Yes, you did. You kicked the game piece under the bed. MICKEY (sighing) Well then, why don't I just get it. Mickey bends down beside the bed and starts to reach under it when a loud noise comes from the front door downstairs. Both boys jump as Mickey hits his head on the railing. They both immediately stand to their feet, with Mickey rubbing his head, and dart out of the bedroom door. DEVON (loudly) Billy? Both boys are running down the stairs. BILLY Mom, we have to show you something. DEVON Hey, Honey. Whose your friend? BILLY Oh, sorry. This is Mickey. He walked home with me. I hope that's okay. DEVON Yeah, certainly. I'm glad to see you're making friends. What do you have to show me? BILLY Come on. You have to follow us upstairs. Billy and Mickey quickly head back upstairs with Devon not far behind them. As they approach the hallway, they head directly to the room. Billy approaches the door and tries to open it. Unable to do so, he looks closer at the latch and notices that it has been locked. BILLY Uh, Mickey. Why did you lock it back? MICKEY I didn't lock it back. You're the one that had the lock. BILLY Yeah, but I set it on the bed. You didn't pick it back up? MICKEY No. DEVON What's going on here, boys? BILLY Nothing. When we got home from school, we were heading to my bedroom when we noticed that the door had been unlocked. We went inside to look around and found some weird stuff in a box. I had the lock in my hand and set it on the bed. We just can't figure out who locked it back after we left and came downstairs to meet you. DEVON That's funny, guys. Come on. Let's go downstairs. We'll get something to eat. BILLY Mom, we're being serious. DEVON It's okay. Let's go. Billy sighs as he heads back downstairs followed by Mickey and Devon. As the boys head down in front of her, Devon stops and turns to catch a glimpse at the door in question and then turns to head down the stairs. INT. TURNER HOUSE - LATER - NIGHT Devon is sleeping soundly in her bed. A thump is heard as a torso of a zombie-like man (only part of the figure viewable on screen) slowly enters the room. It stops right beside the bed and just stands there with the torso part still only being viewable on screen. After a couple of seconds, the zombie-like figure reaches down and grabs the blanket. The figure gently pulls the blanket up to cover Devon as if to comfort her and then turns to leave. Billy then comes on screen as he lies sleeping in his bed. The shot of the bedroom door and Billy in his bed are all viewable on screen as a shadowy figure walks up to the door. The doorknob turns as the door slowly opens up. The same figure stands there for a few seconds (with still only having the torso viewable on screen) and then turns to leave. Billy starts to get a little restless as he begins to move in his bed as if to find a more comfortable position. EXT. TURNER HOUSE - NEXT - DAY Devon scurries down the stairs while putting on her earrings. DEVON Come on, Billy. We're going to be late. BILLY (O.S.) I'm coming. Devon walks up to the front door and opens it as she drops an earring and bends down to pick it up. When she stands upright, she finds herself face to face with the local Catholic Priest. DEVON (jumping back) Father Bishop? The priest bows his head. FATHER BISHOP Devon, I am so sorry to startle you. I just wanted to come by and pay my respects. I can't even imagine the loss of losing both parents within months of each other in such an unprecedented manner. DEVON Thank you, Father. I really appreciate that. FATHER BISHOP And the news about your brother. Well, I just hope that the mystery of his disappearance will soon be revealed and put to rest for your family's sake. DEVON Thank you. Me too. Billy runs down the stairs and up to Devon as he pauses to look at the priest. BILLY Hello. FATHER BISHOP Hello. You must be Billy. The Father extends his hand as Billy accepts with pleasure and shakes it. FATHER BISHOP Well, I know that you both are leaving so I won't take up too much more of your time. The Father extends his hand to Devon to give her a business card. FATHER BISHOP Should you ever need anyone to talk to or just need someone to pray with, please do not hesitate to give me a call. You are always in my prayers and I think of you and your family often. I'm just a phonecall away. Devon takes the business card as the Father bids his farewell and turns to leave. Both Devon and Billy stand in the doorway and watch him as he leaves. BILLY (looking at Devon) How did he know my name? DEVON I don't know. He may have heard of it from other people in the community. BILLY Hm. DEVON Anyway, we need to get going. Billy takes off towards the car as Devon locks up behind her and turns to leave. EXT. CRYSTAL LAKE COMMUNITY STREET WALK- LATER SAME - DAY Mickey is walking alongside Donna (a classmate) after school. MICKEY You have to see this ghost room. It is so weird. DONNA Really? MICKEY Yeah. It will freak you out. Mickey and Donna approach the house and walk up to the door as Mickey rings the doorbell. After a couple of seconds with no answer, he rings the doorbell again. DONNA Maybe no one's here. MICKEY Maybe not. I thought I saw him head out on his way home after school but maybe he was picked up. DONNA Hm. Let's just go. Maybe we can come back later. MICKEY (sighing) Okay. Let's go. Mickey and Donna turn to leave as the door slowly opens. They both turn towards the door simultaneously and then look at each other in question. MICKEY (slowly walking towards the door) Hello? Billy? Mickey turns and looks at Donna. MICKEY Well, are you coming? DONNA Are you crazy? It doesn't look like anybody's at home. MICKEY It's okay. We'll just quickly go upstairs and look at the room and then we'll leave. DONNA Uh yeah, okay, I guess. Are you sure we won't get in trouble? MICKEY Not if we hurry. Come on. Mickey and Donna both slowly enter the house. As they walk in, Mickey quickly observes his surroundings. INT. TURNER HOUSE - IMMEDIATELY AFTER - SAME - DAY MICKEY Come on. Stay close behind me. We'll go upstairs so you can see it and then we'll leave. DONNA Okay. Donna follows closely behind Mickey as they walk up the stairs. As they make it to the hallway upstairs, they slowly walk down the hall. As they approach the bedroom door, Mickey comes to a stop. MICKEY (pointing to the door) This is it. DONNA I thought you said it was locked up. Mickey looks at the lock and notices that, once again, it has been unlocked. MICKEY It was locked up. Maybe Billy's mom found the key. DONNA Well, do you want to go in real quick? MICKEY I don't know. It was pretty freaky. DONNA Oh, come on, Chicken. You said we wouldn't be here that long. MICKEY Yeah, but what if they get home during the meantime. DONNA Well, we'll just say that the door was open and we thought Billy might be upstairs. MICKEY Yeah, right. Mickey takes the lock off of the latch and slowly pushes open the door. He begins to walk in as Donna follows closely behind. DONNA (looking around) Wow, this place is creepy. Is that a blood stain on the bed? MICKEY No. I think somebody accidentally spilt some red juice or something. Don't worry about it. DONNA Oh, okay. MICKEY Here, let me show you this before we leave. Mickey walks over to the box containing the Ouija board and pulls it out. MICKEY Check this out. He takes out the Ouija board and lays it on the floor. He takes the marker and sits it down on top. Both Mickey and Donna patiently watch. DONNA So, what's supposed to happen? MICKEY It moved all by itself before. Billy swears up and down it was me that moved it but it wasn't. It was something else. As Donna and Mickey stand by, waiting for something to happen, the marker slowly begins to maneuver itself. MICKEY (gasping) See? Did you see that? DONNA Yeah, I think I did. The marker slowly begins to pick up pace as it maneuvers itself from one letter to the next. Mickey begins to leave the room as Donna reaches out to stop him. DONNA Wait. It's trying to tell us something. Let me get some paper. Donna sits her backpack on the bed as she reaches in to grab a piece of paper. Meanwhile, the marker becomes consistent in rotation. Mickey just stands by frozen from fear. DONNA (placing the paper on the floor) What was the first letter it went to? Do you remember? MICKEY (shaking) I don't know. I think it may have been a 'W' or something. Donna closely watches the marker as it again starts over with the 'W'. As she goes to each letter, Donna quickly writes it down. Just as sudden as the marker begins, it quickly comes to a stop. Donna stands up with the paper and slowly looks at Mickey. MICKEY Well, did it spell out something? DONNA Yeah. It asks where Billy is. Donna shows Mickey the hyphenated code, also visible for a brief second to the viewers, as he immediately jumps back. MICKEY (grabbing Donna's backpack) Come on. We have to get out of here. Mickey and Donna quickly head out of the room, leaving the door wide open behind them. INT. TURNER HOUSE - A SHORT WHILE AFTER - SAME - DAY View of just inside the front door (inside of house) is shown. BILLY (O.S.) I told you I wouldn't get in trouble. I had absolutely no cavities. DEVON (O.S.) Yeah, you just got lucky. The sound of keys jiggling are heard as the front door slowly begins to creak open. Devon pokes her head through the crack to take a look inside the house. DEVON Hello? She slowly pushes the door open and walks in, followed by Billy. DEVON (turning to Billy) Did you forget to lock the door this morning? BILLY No, it wasn't me. You were the last one to walk out and I saw you lock it. DEVON Yeah, I thought I did but maybe I didn't. You can't ever tell about these old locks. Devon pushes the door to as Billy makes his way up the stairs. He reaches the hallway and walks on down to his room. As he passes his uncle's old room, he takes notice to the secure lock on the latch. BILLY Mom, when are you going to start cleaning out Uncle's old room? DEVON (O.S.) I'm working my way to it, Billy. It's just taking time to get there. BILLY (looking at the lock) Hm. Okay. He continues down to his room as he takes off his backpack and tosses it in his room. Back downstairs, Devon is interrupted by a knock on the door. She approaches the door and slowly opens it as she peers outside. LIEUTENANT COX (holding up his badge) Ma'am, my name is Lieutenant Richard Cox and I was just canvassing the area. Is everything okay? Devon opens the door. As the police officer beholds Devon, he immediately removes his hat and places it over his chest. DEVON Yes, everything is fine. Is something wrong or is there a reason to be concerned? LIEUTENANT COX No, not at the moment. However, you for one should know that anything can quickly take a turn for the worse. Devon just stands there with a questionable look on her face. LIEUTENANT COX Ms. Turner, I am sincerely sorry about what you have been dealing with. I can only imagine how difficult this trying time must be for you and your family. I just wanted you to know that the police force, including myself, is trying our best to get this thing solved. DEVON Well, what exactly do you know? Have there been any new developments? I know my brother is still alive out there somewhere. He has to be. LIEUTENANT COX Well, I'm not really at liberty to discuss certain issues regarding the case but let me just say that we have had our run of suspects, some that haven't quite yet panned out, so just watch yourself and be careful. These days, it's hard to trust anybody. There were three individuals that disappeared that night, one of which was your brother, and we have our suspicions as to who may be involved. There just hasn't been any witnesses come forward yet. However, we're staying on top of new developments and following every lead. DEVON Thank you. I appreciate the update. LIEUTENANT COX (placing his hat back on his head) Anyway, just remember to trust your instinct and steer clear of anyone you may be suspicious of. Also let us know if you hear of anything. DEVON Yes, Sir. I sure will. LIEUTENANT COX (nodding his head) Good day. Devon watches the police officer as he heads towards his vehicle and gets in. As he starts the car, he waves one last time to Devon before backing out of the driveway. She returns the wave and watches him as he leaves. As he pulls out, he passes Ronnie on the road who in turn puts off an evil stare. Lieutenant Cox returns the favor as Devon observes the whole thing. As Ronnie passes the house, his devilish look turns to a smile as he casually waves at Devon and slowly drives on by. DEVON Hm. What was that all about? Devon shakes her head and quickly closes the door to lock up for the night. INT. TURNER HOUSE - LATER - SAME - NIGHT Billy is asleep in his bed. The view of him lying in his bed and his bedroom door, currently cracked open, are in view. The door slowly begins to open wider as it makes a soft creaking noise. As it opens a little wider, a key is tossed into the room and lands on the floor. Billy begins to slowly wake from his sleep. As he wakes up, he glances towards the door and starts screaming. BILLY Mom! As Devon immediately comes on screen, showing to be sleeping soundly in her bed, she immediately sits up as Billy screams continuously. BILLY (O.S.) Mom! Mom! She immediately jumps out of her bed and runs down the hall towards Billy's room. As she enters the room, she finds Billy holding the covers up to his chin with his back completely against the headboard as a look of fear completely covers his face. DEVON Billy, what is the matter? Are you okay? BILLY I saw something, Mom. Somebody was in my room. Devon walks over to Billy as she sits on the side of his bed and tries to console him. DEVON What do you mean somebody was in your room? BILLY (shaking) It was dark, but I saw a man that looked like a ghost or something. DEVON Billy, it's okay. You were just having a bad dream. There is nobody in here with us. Okay? BILLY But it seemed so real. DEVON I'm sure it did, but it's all over now. You were just having a nightmare. BILLY (sighing) Yeah, okay. I guess I was just imagining things. DEVON Great. Now why don't you try to get some sleep. Devon stands to leave. As she begins walking towards the door, she steps on something. DEVON (bending down to pick up the object) What is this? As she looks at the object, she notices that it is a key. DEVON (sighing) Billy, this is how stuff gets lost. You need to keep up with your things a little better. Here, put this up. Devon hands Billy the key as he looks at it in question. BILLY Mom? Devon turns to Billy to find a very disgruntled look on his face as she lets out a long sigh. DEVON Okay, fine, but just for tonight and I mean it. Billy places the key in the drawer of his nightstand and gets up to follow Devon to her bed in her room. INT. TURNER HOUSE - NEXT - DAY Devon and Billy are both asleep in her bed. The alarm sounds as Devon jumps and quickly turns to shut it off. DEVON (lying back down) Billy? It's time to get up. Billy starts to move from the position of laying on his stomach to turning to his right side. BILLY (rubbing his eyes) What time is it? DEVON (sighing) It's 6:30. Devon sits back up and starts nudging Billy. DEVON Come on. We don't want to be late. BILLY Okay, Mom. Geez, I'm getting up. Billy slowly begins to climb his way out of bed and make his way to the bathroom. Devon begins to stretch, while still sitting on the side of the bed, as her attention is directed towards a picture of her brother (originally hanging on the wall) sitting on her dresser upside down. DEVON (slowly bringing her arms down is in awe) Billy? Did you bring your uncle's picture in here and put it on my dresser? BILLY (O.S.) No, why? DEVON Uh, no reason. Just get dressed. Devon stands up and approaches the dresser. She takes the picture and exits her room. EXT. CRYSTAL LAKE COMMUNITY STREET WALK-AFTER SCHOOL - DAY MICKEY I'm telling you, that is exactly what it did. BILLY Oh, whatever. You need to quit with the jokes, okay? MICKEY (stopping to take Billy's arm) I'm not joking with you. The thing spelled out your name as if to ask a question. It was wanting to know where you were. Ask Donna, she'll tell you. BILLY (throwing up his hands) So, let me get this straight. You literally break into my house, force your way into my uncle's old bedroom and then pretend that a board game was speaking to you by spelling out words that asked where I was, by itself? MICKEY Yes, exactly and we didn't break or force ourselves into your house. Both of the doors were unlocked. BILLY (starting to walk) That room is padlocked and you know it. MICKEY (following alongside) Not at that time it wasn't. Someone had unlocked it as if to invite us in. BILLY Yeah, right. MICKEY Something is up, Man, I'm telling you. Maybe your house is haunted. BILLY Yeah and do you really believe in that stuff? MICKEY Nothing has ever happened to convince me otherwise. BILLY (sighing) Yeah, I know what you mean. The two boys approach the outside of Billy's house. MICKEY Well, take it easy. I guess I'll see you tomorrow. BILLY (waving) Yeah, see ya tomorrow. Bye. As Billy stands and watches Mickey leave, he lets out a sigh and then turns towards his house to go home. INT. TURNER HOUSE - THAT SAME - NIGHT As Billy lies asleep in his bed, he is awakened by a noise that sounds like a huge chain being pulled across the floor. He immediately sits up and looks out of his door as he pulls the covers up to his chin. He sees a shadow of a man walking towards his bedroom. He immediately jumps out of bed and runs to his closet where he quietly, yet quickly, climbs up to his top shelf and discretely positions himself into a fetal position. The sound of the figure gets louder as he hears it enter his bedroom. The noise immediately stops as if to pause for a brief second and then makes its way to the closet. Billy is quietly sobbing with his hand over his mouth as the noise begins to sound again. The shadow slowly makes its way towards the closet as the zombie-looking figure comes into view. Billy immediately gasps as he looks at the creature and sees the resemblance between it and his uncle. The creature slowly walks into the closet, shuffles the clothes around, stands there briefly and then turns to leave. Billy throws his head back as in an effort to quietly let out a contained sob. He then remains still, as if to give the creature time to leave, and slowly yet fearfully drifts off to sleep. INT. TURNER HOUSE - NEXT - DAY Devon is sitting on the side of her bed rotating her head in a circular motion, with her hand on the back of her neck, as to release some pressure from a restless sleep. DEVON (sighing) Oh, what a night. She stands up and walks towards the bathroom. DEVON Billy? It's time to get up. I want to hear some movement. She walks into the bathroom where you can hear some rustling off-screen and then the flushing of the toilet. A few seconds later, she walks out of the bathroom and towards the closet. DEVON Billy? Don't make me come in there. Billy comes on screen as he remains asleep in his closet. DEVON (O.S.) Billy! Billy jumps as he immediately comes to and looks around as if to make sure the coast is clear. BILLY Mom! Devon immediately runs into his bedroom. DEVON (O.S.) Billy? Where are you? BILLY I'm in here. Devon approaches the closet and looks in. DEVON Billy? BILLY Up here. DEVON (looking up) What are you doing? Devon assists Billy as he climbs down from the top shelf and helps him to his bed. DEVON What is going on with you? BILLY (breathing heavily) He's dead, Mom. DEVON What? BILLY Your brother, my uncle, he's dead. DEVON What are you talking about? BILLY He was here last night in my room. He looked like he had been dead for years, walking around like a zombie on a rampage. It was him, I know it was. It was almost as if he was trying to find something or get a message to me but I avoided him. I had never been so scared in my entire life. DEVON Billy, this joking has got to stop. This is absolutely nothing to kid about and I'm tired of hearing all the foolishness. BILLY But, Mom, you have to believe me. I wish I was joking but I'm not. Billy gets up and walks over to his desk and takes hold of his web cam. BILLY Look, I'll prove it to you. If he ever comes back, I'll be ready. Maybe I can catch whatever it is on video and then you'll believe me. DEVON (sighing) Alright, fine. If you think that's what needs to be done. Anyway, we've got to get dressed. Just let it go for now, okay? BILLY (bowing his head) Yes, Ma'am. Devon sighs as she shakes her head and leaves the room. BILLY (talking to himself) I know I'm not crazy and I'll prove it. Billy approaches his computer desk and turns on the computer. As the video image of his bedroom pops up on the computer monitor via his web-cam, he slowly maneuvers the camera to angle it just right. BILLY There. How about I just leave it running. Maybe then I could really catch something. INT. LOCAL PAWN (GUN) SHOP - SAME - DAY Devon is entering a pawn shop. Upon entering, she slowly takes notice to the displays around her. A clerk takes notice and walks over to her. GUN SHOP CLERK (approaching Devon) Can I help you Ma'am? DEVON (looking up) Yes Sir, I am in the market to buy a gun. GUN SHOP CLERK (leaning against the display case with arms crossed) Tell me, what does a little darling like you need a gun for? DEVON You wouldn't believe me if I told you. GUN SHOP CLERK Why don't you try me. Trust me, Lady, I have heard some wild stories in my lifetime. DEVON (sighing) Something is terrorizing my house and I need some form of protection from it. GUN SHOP CLERK Something? DEVON Yes, something. I haven't actually seen what it is but I have definitely felt the effects of it. GUN SHOP CLERK You're talking like you're not sure what type of being this is. DEVON Exactly. I think my house may be haunted. GUN SHOP CLERK (laughing) Do what? You think your house is haunted and your looking for a gun for protection? Wait, if you hang on a second I might have some silver bullets in the back. The clerk as well as the other men standing around continue laughing. GUN SHOP CLERK (holding his hands up) Look, Ma'am, I'm not trying to make light of the situation but your not making any sense here. You have to fight fire with proper fire. Catch my drift? DEVON (sighing) Yeah, thanks. Haven't you ever heard that if you really didn't want to know the answer, don't ask? It is basically just to pacify my son who thinks he is seeing someone come into his bedroom in the middle of the night for a brief moment and then leaving again. I haven't found any signs of someone breaking in so I have no idea what to make of it. GUN SHOP CLERK (sighing) Look, I think what you probably need is just a piece of mind. Take this weapon for instance. The clerk walks over to a gun case. GUN SHOP CLERK (taking out the gun) Here. Why not try this Winchester Model 12 Pump gun? DEVON A pump gun? GUN SHOP CLERK Well, yes, this gun is referred to as the perfect repeater. It fires each time the trigger is depressed and its 6-shot capacity makes it effective for any close range combat. As fast as one can pump the action, another shot is fired. It also, as you can see, offers you that much needed piece of mind. DEVON Um, well, I was kind of aiming towards something more along the lines of that. Devon points to a 9mm/38 Caliber hand gun (immediately shown on screen) in another display case. The clerk turns in that direction and then back at Devon. The clerk is shown handing Devon a bag. GUN SHOP CLERK Alright, if you have any trouble or need to ask any questions, please do not hesitate to call me, okay? DEVON Yeah, I appreciate it. Devon turns to walk towards the door and pushes it open as she leaves. GUN SHOP CLERK (looking back at men in shop) Do any of you know her? MAN 1 Yeah, that's the Devon Turner. She's come home and moved back into the Old Turner Home out on Crystal Lake where her missing brother last lived. GUN SHOP CLERK Really? The clerk looks back in her direction. GUN SHOP CLERK Well, yeah, then she probably does need some protection from only God knows what. God be with you. INT. TURNER HOUSE - LATER SAME - DAY Billy enters the front door. BILLY Hey, Mom, I'm home. As he takes off his backpack to place it by the front door, he hears laughter coming from the kitchen. BILLY Mom? DEVON (O.S.) In here, Honey. Billy enters the kitchen as he notices Ronnie sitting at the table. RONNIE (talking to Devon) Yeah, the whole thing is kind of funny. We've been giving each other a hard time since highschool. BILLY What's going on? DEVON Well, we've got company tonight. Say hello to Ronnie. RONNIE Hey, Billy. I don't think we've been formally introduced yet. My name is Ronnie. Ronnie extends his hand to Billy. BILLY (taking Ronnie's hand) Billy. RONNIE Well, Billy, it's nice to meet you. BILLY (suspiciously) Yeah, you too. RONNIE I understand you like to play ball. Maybe we can go play sometime. BILLY Yeah, sure. DEVON Billy, are you okay? BILLY Yeah, I've just had a bad day. I think I'll just go up to my room. Sorry. DEVON Well, Honey, are you not going to eat? BILLY No, I'm not hungry right now. Maybe later. Billy turns to leave as both Devon and Ronnie watch him walk away. RONNIE (looking at Devon) Is he okay? DEVON Yeah, he's fine. We've just had a rough start here, that's all. Things will get better though, I hope. RONNIE (looking back towards direction of Billy) Oh, sure they will. He's a cute kid. I hope maybe we can become close friends. DEVON Yeah, I'm sure he would like that. RONNIE (looking back towards Devon) Great. That would make two of us. Ronnie and Devon both engage in laughter. Billy is seen walking up the stairs. He reaches the hallway and heads to his room. Upon entering his room, he crashes down upon his bed. BILLY (sighing as he looks up at the ceiling) Wow, I hope that's not Mom's new boyfriend. What a skeez-bucket. He starts laughing to himself as he rolls off the bed and heads to his computer desk. He pulls the chair back and sits down as he starts going through papers lying on the desk. After a short while of scuffling through papers, he hits a key on the keyboard of the computer as the monitor comes to life. It reflects the image of his room, the angle reflected by the position of the web-cam. BILLY Aw, yes, I forgot about letting this play all day. Let's see if we caught anything. As Billy starts searching for a file on his computer, Devon walks into his room. DEVON (poking her head around the door) Billy? BILLY (quickly turning around) Geez, why don't you give somebody a heart attack. Don't you know how to knock? DEVON I'm sorry. I just wanted to check with you and make sure you were alright. You seem to be acting a little strange. Did anything happen at school today? BILLY No, Mom, I'm okay. I'll come down later and eat. I just have a lot of homework, that's all. DEVON Okay, then, I'll leave you to it. Devon turns to leave as she quickly leans back in. DEVON I love you. BILLY (with back turned) I love you too, Mom. Devon leaves to head back down stairs as Billy smiles and shakes his head. As he quickly turns back around towards his bedroom door to make sure the coast is clear, he again pulls up a file on his computer and starts to play it. BILLY (watching the monitor) Hm. Nothing for now but I'll just keep it rolling. Maybe something will show up. Billy grabs a pencil, opens the textbook lying on his desk and presumes to work. After a brief moment, the picture dissolves into the same scene. INT. TURNER HOUSE - THAT SAME - NIGHT Billy is now asleep with his head resting on the desk. The monitor comes to life as Ronnie is seen walking past the bedroom door (not in real time-just on monitor) and stops to take a look in the bedroom. He walks over to Billy's closet and opens the door, looks around inside and then swiftly closes the door, making a loud sound on the monitor that wakes Billy up. As Billy is awakened, he raises his head and takes notice to the monitor. He quickly turns around to find Ronnie as he realizes that the video is not in real time. He then pays closer attention to the monitor as he sees Ronnie walk over to his computer desk at which he currently sits and opens the drawer. BILLY (looking at monitor) What is he doing? As Billy continues watching the monitor, he observes Ronnie frantically searching for something as he goes from the computer desk to Billy's bed, all the while mumbling something to himself. Devon is then heard via the audio of the monitor addressing Ronnie from downstairs. DEVON (O.S.) Ronnie, are you okay up there? Ronnie responds to Devon. RONNIE Yes, I'm sorry. I'll be right down. Ronnie throws his hands up and sighs. RONNIE (to himself) Where the hell is that damn key? He then turns and exits the room. Billy sits back in his chair with a disgruntled look on his face. BILLY Key? What key is he looking for and why would it be in my room? Billy turns around to visually scan his room. As he slowly glances behind him, he does a double take towards his nightstand. BILLY Wait a minute. He immediately stands up and walks over to the nightstand. He opens the drawer, reaches in and pulls out the key that Devon had just recently found on his floor. BILLY (looking at the key) Is this what he's looking for? Devon peeks in the room. DEVON Hey, I thought you were working on homework. What are you doing? BILLY Oh, sorry. I drifted off to sleep. Where's your friend? DEVON He just went home. Why? Devon walks over and sits on the side of Billy's bed as he stands in front of her. BILLY Mom, I think we have to talk. DEVON What do you mean? What's going on? Billy holds up the key to show it to Devon. DEVON It's a key. What does that have to do with anything? BILLY Remember I told you that I was going to leave my web-cam on record in hopes of catching something? DEVON Yes? BILLY Well, watch this. Billy heads back to his computer desk and replays the scene for Devon, as she remains seated on his bed, of Ronnie searching in his room and then mumbling the question of where the key is just prior to leaving. DEVON (looking at Billy in question) So, what business would he have with a key that would be in your room? BILLY I don't know, but you found this key on my floor, remember? I don't know what it's to. You think this might be what he's looking for? DEVON (taking the key from Billy) I don't know. What could it possibly go to? It looks like a padlock key. At that moment, Billy and Devon both look at each other as if to say they had just mentally figured it out and turn to leave the room with Billy leading the way as Devon follows closely behind him. They exit the room as Billy heads down the hall towards his uncle's old room. Devon stands still in the hallway right outside of Billy's bedroom door. DEVON What are you doing? BILLY Just watch. Billy walks up to the locked door, inserts the key into the padlock and turns the key as it unlocks the door. He then immediately turns to look at Devon. DEVON What is going on here? BILLY I don't know but there is obviously something he wants out of this room. Devon walks up to the door as she pulls the lock from the latch and pushes the door open. As the door slowly creaks open, Devon reaches in and turns on the light as both she and Billy just stand in the doorway. DEVON (looking inside the room) Oh, my gosh. BILLY Mom, something terrible happened in here. Can't you feel it? Devon slowly walks in, places the lock on the table just inside the bedroom door and approaches the boxes. She opens the lid of the box and reaches in to pull out the Ouija board. After observing the box containing the Ouija board, she tosses it on the bed and continues going through the rest of the stuff contained in that one box. DEVON What is this? This stuff doesn't belong to my brother. BILLY (looking around the room) Mom, I think we need to get out of here. A soft, yet very distinct, creaking sound of someone slowly walking up the stairs is heard. Devon immediately stops and takes notice to the noise that appears to be getting louder right outside of the bedroom door. Billy immediately runs to Devon as he nervously stands beside her, never removing his eyes from the opened door. Devon takes a deep breath as the sound reaches its max. Ronnie then slowly steps in front of the doorway as Billy jumps about a foot back behind Devon. RONNIE Oh, there you are. I tried knocking but no one came to the door. DEVON Ronnie, what are you still doing here? What makes you think you can just walk right on in? RONNIE Oh, I'm sorry. The door was pushed open. I just thought you were right inside the door but when I stepped in, I heard the two of you talking so I let myself in. I left my car key on your counter so I came back in to grab it. Can't go far without these guys. Ronnie waves his keys in the air as Devon looks at Billy in question. RONNIE (putting his hands up) Look, I'm sorry I startled you. I'll make sure to ring the doorbell next time. Ronnie looks around the room. RONNIE Wow, it seems weird to be in your brother's old room again without him here. What is that on the wall over there? As Devon and Billy turn towards that direction, Ronnie steps in and discretely takes the padlock off of the table. DEVON I don't know. I'm not sure what half of this stuff is. Ronnie walks over to the bed and picks up the Ouija board as he observes the box. RONNIE (shaking his head with a smirk) Wow, pretty outgoing guy. DEVON (persistently) This is not his stuff. I have no idea where it came from. RONNIE Don't fret, it's okay. I'm sure there's a lot of things you didn't know about your brother. Trust me. Ronnie puts off a devilish laugh. DEVON Look, I'm sorry but I think you need to leave. We were just heading to bed. Ronnie smiles sheepishly as he places the box back on the bed. RONNIE Yeah, you're right. It is a little late. Can I call you tomorrow? DEVON Yeah, that's fine. RONNIE Great. I guess I'll call you tomorrow. Ronnie starts to exit the room as he turns around to address Devon one last time. RONNIE (flashing a single wave) I'll just let myself out. Thanks again for dinner. Ronnie looks at Billy and gives off a devilish wink as he turns to leave. BILLY (softly) What is up with that guy? DEVON (looking at Billy) Make sure to get all this stuff put back up. I'm going to see him out and make sure everything gets locked up. BILLY Yes, Ma'am. Devon exits the room as Billy takes the Ouija board and places it back into the box. He then walks over to the table to grab the lock and notices that it is not there. BILLY What? I know I saw that lock sitting here. He looks under the table and on the floor. BILLY (sighing) Great. I'll just fasten the latch. That lock is bound to turn up some time. Billy stands up and walks out the door after turning off the light and shutting the door behind him. As the inside view of the door is on screen, a noise of the door being latched from just outside is heard. The view of the camera slowly rotates towards the closet in the back of the room as it shows four skinny fingers (the same fingers as portrayed earlier in the script) reach around the wall from inside the closet. A growling sound is then heard as the picture fades out. INT. TURNER HOUSE - NEXT - NIGHT Devon is walking around the house with a lighter, lighting candles in case of a power outage, as it storms outside. She is interrupted by a knock on the door and quickly approaches it. DEVON Who is it? FATHER BISHOP (O.S.) Devon, it's Father Bishop. Devon immediately opens the door. DEVON Father, I'm so glad you're here. Father Bishop walks in, as the rain continues pouring outside, and Devon closes the door behind him. FATHER BISHOP Yes, I was wondering how long it was going to take before you called me. We have to talk. Devon assists Father Bishop in taking off his raincoat. DEVON (hanging up his raincoat) Yes, I know. I've got Billy staying over at a friend's house so he's not going to be here tonight. When you have things happening in your own home that you can't logically explain, the next thing to do would be to contact someone who caters to a higher power who might can find some answers or at least make whatever it is scaring us go away. FATHER BISHOP (looking around) Oh, yes, I do greatly feel its presence and I can honestly tell you that it does not want me here. DEVON Well, what do you think we need to do? FATHER BISHOP (pausing) Devon, your brother's spirit is in danger. He is here and is calling out for help. He is also trying to warn you and send you a message. DEVON (looking disgruntled) What? FATHER BISHOP (leading the way) Come, let's sit down. Father Bishop and Devon make their way into the great room and take a seat on the couch. FATHER BISHOP (looking at Devon) Your brother came to me last night in a vision. You and Billy are in grave danger and you have to get out of this house immediately. DEVON What? FATHER BISHOP Your brother has been murdered and is now trying to avenge his own death. DEVON (taken aback) Father, I'm sorry but I don't understand. FATHER BISHOP (sighing as he takes Devon's hand) In life, your brother had become involved in some type of a satanic cult. Right before his disappearance, he contacted me to discuss what he referred to as a much needed deliverance on himself. DEVON What? What are you talking about and what exactly is a deliverance? FATHER BISHOP The purpose of a deliverance is to eject any and all demonic possessions and rid yourself of the evil that may encompass you. DEVON So, what are you saying? That my brother was possessed? FATHER BISHOP (looking at Devon) Well, if he's contacting a priest to inquire of such matters, either the true possession is in place and he is out to secretly mock the church or he has delved into something he knows no escape from. Either way, I knew he needed immediate help. DEVON So you think that all of this had something to do with his disappearance? FATHER BISHOP (shaking his head) No, no, I don't think so. I know so. I think he and his friends opened up a door that had no business being opened. DEVON And what does that mean? FATHER BISHOP (sighing) The door to the other side. Or, in so many words, the portal of literal hell. It's the gateway to the spirit world. It's a place that allows the other side access to us in a much evil physical form that tries to take hold of its prey and recruit them, so to speak. It's obtained through satanic rituals, sacrificial procedures on animals and sometimes even humans. The sacrifices are used as gifts to these demonic entities. DEVON So you believe that my brother worshipped Satan? You think that is what brought all of this about? FATHER BISHOP I believe that what happened was that your brother was pulled into a world that he knew nothing about. He thought these people were his friends and they weren't. They tried to teach him these rituals and he began to refrain. I also think that your parents were haunted by the demons that may have resulted in their deaths. DEVON (beginning to breathe heavily) What? So, what do you think really happened the night my brother disappeared? FATHER BISHOP (sighing) Things that no human should ever have to witness in his lifetime. Father Bishop begins telling the story as the actions of what had happened begin to visually unfold on screen. Four boys, including Devon's brother and a younger looking Ronnie, are seen forcefully escorting a young girl up to the house in the pouring rain. FATHER BISHOP (V.O.) They thought that this house would be better because of its close proximity to a cemetery. Your parents had left for the weekend, so there was no better time than then to perform the ritual. The boys engage in laughter as they push the front door open and push her into the house. She falls on her back onto the floor. DEVON'S BROTHER Is all of this really necessary? BOY 1 Shut it, Turner, or you'll be next. Devon's brother peers down at the girl who is crying uncontrollably from fear and shuts the door behind him. DEVON'S BROTHER How do you know that she's even a virgin? BOY 1 Look at her. Would you have sex with something that looked like that? The remaining boys shout out with laughter as they lift the girl to her feet and start carrying her upstairs. DEVON'S BROTHER Look, there has to be another way around this. BOY 1 (looking at Devon's brother) Are you coming or are you going to bow out like a little chump? Devon's brother sighs and follows them up the stairs as the girl continues crying uncontrollably. FATHER BISHOP (V.O.) Your brother truly wanted no part of it, but at this point, he knew he was in too deep to turn back. He knew his own life was in danger if he didn't follow suit. The boys get up the stairs and walk down the hall to Devon's brother's room. They open the door and literally throw the crying girl into the room. BOY 1 (bending down to confront the girl) If you don't stop your hideous sobbing, this is going to be worse. Do you understand me? YOUNG GIRL (sobbing) Why? Why are you doing this? BOY 1 (chuckling) Why? Why are we doing this? The boy stands up and nudges Devon's brother. BOY 1 Go on, Turner, tell the girl why we are doing this. Maybe she at least deserves that much. The other boys laugh as Devon's brother just stands there. BOY 1 (raising his voice) Go on, Turner, tell her. He, again, just stands there with no ability to speak. BOY 1 Oh, I see, our friend is going to play shy now. The boy reaches over and places his arm around Devon's brother's neck. BOY 1 (looking at girl) What my friend is trying to say is that we need your little virgin body to offer as our sacrifice to the gods. He then bends down beside the girl to address her one last time. BOY 1 Because if we don't, all that we've done up to this point is in vain. We wouldn't want that, would we? The boy stands back up as the girl continues crying uncontrollably. BOY 1 Alright, boys, let's get this over with. This bitch is about to give me a headache. Two of the boys pick the girl up and place her on the bed. They then tie each arm to the headrest as the first boy walks over to hold her feet down. BOY 1 Alright, that's good. Now each of you get over here and hold her legs down. Devon's brother is seen standing to the side as he literally watches in horror. BOY 1 (talking to Devon's brother) God, what is this? I can't believe you, Man. What was that about pleasing Satan and wanting to do his will. Think about all of the freedoms you can obtain. This means living your life without any restraints and giving yourself to any and all temptations this world can offer. Doesn't that sound better than following ridiculous rules and having to answer to a higher power? DEVON'S BROTHER (looking straight at the boy) It doesn't matter what you do. You will always have to answer to a higher power, good or evil. Maybe the rules exist to protect people. Did you ever think of that? BOY 1 Look, I am not going to stand here and debate this. We have already established the ground rules and the basis for our lives. We have to have 100% dedication to make this work. Now, are you in or are you out? The crying girl looks up at Devon's brother with a tremendous look of fear. YOUNG GIRL (through tears) Please, help me. DEVON'S BROTHER (looking away as he gulps) Yeah, fine. Just remember that this wasn't my idea. BOY 1 (nodding his head) Alright, now that's what I'm talking about. Don't worry. Your mommy, daddy and big sissy would all be so proud. The boy pulls a knife from his coat as the girl screams louder. BOY 1 (yelling) Is everyone in place? All the boys gather around the bed with two standing at the end of the bed (including Devon's brother alongside Ronnie) and the other boy standing opposite of the first boy with the knife. The boy with the knife takes out a small pamphlet from his back pocket and lays it on the bed. The girl consistently sobs as she steadily screams out in fear. BOY 1 (sighing) Will somebody please go find some duct tape? The boys all turn to Devon's brother. BOY 1 (shrugging his shoulders) Turner, that would be your call. You're the only one who knows where stuff is around here. DEVON'S BROTHER Yeah, right. He turns and exits the room. BOY 2 Are you sure this is going to work? BOY 1 Yeah, Dude, we have Satan backing us up. It will work. The boy looks down at the girl as her screams seem to be getting louder. BOY 1 Speed it up, Turner! Devon's brother is heard running back up the stairs as he then re-enters the room. DEVON'S BROTHER (approaching the boy) Here. Just for you. He shoves the boy's chest, tape in hand, as the boy abruptly takes it from him. BOY 1 Yeah, I appreciate your generousity. Devon's brother cautiously returns to his original spot as he quickly glances back down at the girl. The boy starts peeling the tape away. FATHER BISHOP (V.O.) Your brother knows that there is nothing remotely okay about this, no matter what kind of worship he has already offered to the dark side. Before, it was only him and the confusion of his beliefs but now, he has become responsible for a living human being. This only goes to show that he had not fully committed himself to what his friends have involved him in or what was about to take place. The boy tears a piece of tape off and quickly places it over the girl's mouth. He then tosses the roll onto the floor. BOY 1 (sighing) Finally, peace and quite. Now, let's get this party started. The boy positions the pamphlet on the corner of the bed where he can read it during the ritual. BOY 1 (looking up as he raises the knife above the girl) Satan, we come to you with an offering of pureness that we will slay in your name only! Devon's brother is beginning to shake as he quickly becomes very restless and immediately takes flight. He screams in rage as he jumps across the corner of the bed, knocking the pamphlet off the bed and into the closet under a pile of clothes, and tackles the boy with the knife to the ground. FATHER BISHOP (V.O.) Your brother immediately disturbs the ritual as he tackles the boy to the ground. A ringing of thunder, as lightning flashes outside the window, is heard throughout the house as the lights immediately go out. Devon and Father Bishop immediately come back on screen. A loud sound of thunder rings throughout the house as the lights begin to flicker and then completely go out. Father Bishop immediately stands to his feet. DEVON (sitting Father Bishop back down) It's okay. I've got candles lit. You have to finish telling me what happens to my brother. Father Bishop sighs as he continues. FATHER BISHOP (V.O.) The lights had went out and the only thing you could hear was the rustling of boys in conflict. The lights then come back on as Devon's brother is seen holding the boy with the knife against the wall as the other boys stand around. DEVON'S BROTHER I can not allow this. You've gone far enough. BOY 1 Oh, really? I think you're forgetting who has the weapon. FATHER BISHOP (V.O.) Your brother is immediately stabbed in his side as he falls to the ground in agony. The boy stands to his feet and looks at the girl, whose eyes have almost swollen shut from crying, and raises the blood-stricken knife in the air. BOY 1 (in a deep, possessed voice with eyes of red) Now, let's finish this! FATHER BISHOP (V.O.) While in pain, your brother jumps up behind the boy and grabs both of his arms from behind. In a swift motion, he forcefully brings the knife down towards the boy's chest as it pierces his heart. The boy then immediately falls to the floor. BOY 1 (rolling from side to side in pain) Veritas diaboli manet in aeternum! FATHER BISHOP (V.O.) Devil's truth remain eternally, he shouts in a demonic voice. RONNIE (looking at Devon's brother) What have you done? FATHER BISHOP (V.O.) Your brother falls to his knees from the wound in his side and slowly drifts off to sleep, never to awaken again. His spirit just seems to be caught somewhere between here and there for he has great need to complete one more task. The 2nd boy yells at Ronnie. BOY 2 What are we going to do? RONNIE (looking at the boy) We are going to complete the ritual. Devon and Father Bishop come back on screen as Devon bows her head with Father Bishop looking on in sorrow. DEVON So they killed the little girl anyway, in this house. FATHER BISHOP Oh, yes. You see, they had to complete the ritualistic ceremony at hand but it was tainted and not carried out properly. Once the ritual is disturbed, it doesn't fulfill its main purpose. It leaves too many loose ends that must be tied up for Satan to fully be satisfied with the gift he is being offered. So, although the task was carried through, there has to be proper and just replacements made quickly to complete the original circle. However, in this case, only certain individuals could righfully complete it. DEVON (looking up at Father Bishop) Billy? FATHER BISHOP Yes, your brother's blood kin. The next best thing to his offspring would be his nephew. When he took an oath to the dark side, it not only affected him but his entire family. They thought that if they could convert Billy's young mind early, they could recruit him, complete the circle and perform another offering to alter the area and maintain complete passage to the dark side. Father Bishop continues with the story as Ronnie comes back on screen, standing in a dark, desolate and wet location. FATHER BISHOP (V.O.) After Ronnie disposes of the bodies, he walks out of the wooded area but turns to claim his stake. RONNIE We will avenge your death. The circle will be completed and the offering made to our god will be consummated! FATHER BISHOP (V.O.) One of the first things he must do now is find the script that was misplaced among the scuffle. Only then can he complete the long awaited offering to the evil entity he refers to as God. Father Bishop and Devon come back on screen as the lights begin to flicker and then come back on. FATHER BISHOP Stay away from Ronnie, Devon. He is only trying to deter you. He has to maintain access to this house in order to carry out what his brothers failed to properly carry out before. DEVON So, what are you saying? That this house has become their vortex? FATHER BISHOP Yes, that's exactly right. It's like an omen, if you will, of where their negative orb of energy has created the archway to Satan. DEVON (looking straight at Father Bishop) The portal of hell? FATHER BISHOP (frantically nodding his head) Yes. It is the portal of hell. A loud banging on the front door is heard coming from the outside of the house as both Devon and Father Bishop jump and turn towards the door. RONNIE (O.S.) I know you're in there! Open this door! DEVON Oh, my gosh. What are we gong to do? FATHER BISHOP (hollering towards the door) You are not welcome here. You must leave at once. RONNIE (O.S.) Do you honestly think that is going to deter me? The doorknob starts jiggling as Devon and Father Bishop look on. DEVON What do you want from us? RONNIE (O.S.) Oh, come on, Devon. You can't possibly tell me that you don't know that by now. DEVON You killed my brother you stupid bastard. Get out of here before I call the cops. RONNIE Oh, really? Open this door right now! The door begins shaking dramatically as Devon stands to her feet. DEVON (taking Father Bishop by the hand) Come on, we have to get out of here. As Father Bishop stands to his feet, the door is forcefully kicked open as they both stand there and watch Ronnie slowly make his way into the house. Father Bishop quickly stands in front of Devon. RONNIE (laughing devilishly) Well, what do we have here? Taking a stroll on the dark side, Father? You'll learn it can be very contagious and fulfilling, to say the least. FATHER BISHOP You need to leave here at once, Ronnie. RONNIE Oh, really? And what are you going to do about it if I don't? Ronnie slowly begins to walk towards them. FATHER BISHOP (pointing towards Ronnie) Do not come a step closer. Ronnie begins to chuckle and shake his head. Devon slowly reaches behind her and opens the drawer to the end table she happens to be standing in front of. RONNIE Father, do you honestly think that after all the things I have seen in my short life that you are going to startle me? As she slowly reaches into the drawer, she moves her hand around as if to search for something. After a couple of seconds, she finally grabs something and immediately withdraws her hand and displays a gun as she points it towards Ronnie. RONNIE (putting his hands up) Well, would you look at this? What are you going to do? Shoot me? You don't have the guts. Father Bishop quickly turns around and takes the gun from Devon. FATHER BISHOP (pointing the gun towards Ronnie) No, but I do. Loud thunder rings throughout the house as the lights again flicker and then completely go off. A scuffle is heard as Devon begins to scream. A gunshot rings out as the lights immediately come back on. Father Bishop is lying flat on his back as Ronnie sits on top of him, holding him down by his chest. As Devon stands back in shock, Father Bishop notices that the gun has landed right above his head and he begins to reach for it. Devon immediately comes to his aid as she grabs the gun and points it at Ronnie. DEVON Get off of him now! Ronnie slowly raises his hands and begins to stand to his feet. RONNIE Come on, Devon, give me the gun so we can put an end to all of this. FATHER BISHOP (standing up) Give me the gun, Devon. RONNIE (quickly) I would think twice before I did that. DEVON (hesitating as she looks at Ronnie) What? What are you talking about? RONNIE You just don't get it, do you? If Satan wanted to manipulate somebody and get in his head, the best way to do that would be to disguise himself as a man of God. If you were Satan, where would be the best place for you to hide that no one would ever suspect you of being? DEVON Excuse me? RONNIE (shrugging his shoulders) Every ring has its master. Don't you see? The whole thing is a fabrication on the part of Father Bishop himself. In order to discourage you from seeking the facts, he has befriended you and led you astray as to the actual truth of the matter. FATHER BISHOP Don't listen to him. He's only trying to lead you astray. There should be no doubt with you as to what my beliefs are. RONNIE (laughing) Really? Even Satan believes in God and can quote you any scripture in the Bible. Devon flashes a disgruntled look. DEVON Stop it! This is ludicrous. Both of you just remain still while I call the police. RONNIE Yeah, you do that. That's a great idea. Don't you think that if they really cared they would have solved the case by now or at least tried a little harder to solve it? Two young men and a female disappeared over a year ago and they are no further along then they were when the case first opened. Devon nervously, while still aiming the gun towards both men, picks up the phone. She tries turning the phone on and puts it to her ear. DEVON (pausing) Oh, I can not believe this. The phones are down. She places the phone back down on the receiver. FATHER BISHOP (reaching out to Devon) Come on, let me make this a lot easier for you. Just please give me the gun. As lightning strikes outside, a figure appears in the corner of the room that immediately attracts Ronnie's attention. The figure disappears just as quickly as it appears. The figure is that of Devon's brother, the same figure that Billy had previously seen. RONNIE (mouth dropping) What in the world is that? Devon and Father Bishop both direct their attention in the direction of Ronnie's stare as Devon immediately looks back towards the men with gun in hand. RONNIE (pointing in that direction) Who was that? Did you not see that? Lightning strikes again as the figure presents itself and Ronnie immediately gasps. Devon and Father Bishop simply look around in question. RONNIE No, it's not possible. What is this, a joke? Lightning strikes for a third time as the figure appears right beside Ronnie, looking straight at him. He immediately swings for it as the figure again disappears. Devon looks on in question. RONNIE (looking around) What are you? You are dead! DEVON (shouting) What is going on here? FATHER BISHOP He's having visions of his victim. Your brother is here with us. DEVON (eyes tearing up) What? He is here? FATHER BISHOP (looking around) Yes, he is. RONNIE No, he's not. Your brother is dead. There is no way he is here. FATHER BISHOP Yes, he is here, Ronnie, and he has come back to avenge his death. RONNIE (looking at Father Bishop) What the hell are you talking about? I had nothing to do with his death. FATHER BISHOP (looking at Ronnie) Oh, but you did have something to do with his death and yet you choose to allow such ungodly acts to remain free of justice. For one last time, lightning strikes as a vision of Devon's brother is seen once more standing right in front of Devon as Ronnie snaps and jumps towards her in an attempt to tackle the ghost. As Ronnie leaps towards her, the ghost quickly dissipates and Devon fires a shot as Ronnie goes down to the ground. As he falls to the floor, he quickly grabs his left shoulder and screams in agony. Devon looses control and quickly drops the gun as Father Bishop dives for it. As he obtains the gun, he quickly jumps on top of Ronnie and places the gun to his temple. FATHER BISHOP (forcefully) Now, listen to me and listen to me good. I have permission from a higher power to put a bullet in your head if you do not tell us where you placed those helpless bodies. Devon stands there in shock as she helplessly looks on and places her hand in front of her mouth. RONNIE Yeah, right. Father Bishop quickly turns around and shoots Ronnie in his right knee at close range as Ronnie screams out in agony and then resumes position. FATHER BISHOP I am not in a position to play games here and we haven't much time. Now, I'm only asking you this one last time. Where are those helpless souls? RONNIE (through tears of agony) The old Woodland Park Road. The wooded area right behind the Chancellor's house. The graves are marked with huge stones. You can't miss it. FATHER BISHOP (looking Ronnie square in the eyes) Appreciate it. May you die in peace. Father Bishop stands up and motions for Devon to follow. He directs her out of the house as he stops behind her and turns to address Ronnie one last time who remains on the floor in agony. FATHER BISHOP No, I am not perfect for none of us are. I did fail and told a lie. A higher power did not give me permission to put a bullet in your head. He only gave me permission to put it in your knees. Father Bishop fires one last shot into Ronnie's left knee and turns to leave. RONNIE (screaming in agony) Please don't leave me! As Ronnie lies flat on his back, while rolling from side to side in horrific pain, he glances up through eyes of tears and beholds Devon's brother's ghost looking down on him. RONNIE (looking up while crying) It's not my fault that you're dead. THE GHOST OF DEVON'S BROTHER (looking down at Ronnie) The little girl? RONNIE (laughing devilishly) We just put her out of her misery. The eerie-zombie looking ghost of Devon's brother immediately transforms into the demonic figure seen previously as it raises its head and lets out a huge growl. The figure quickly drops to the floor above Ronnie as he lets out an ear-piercing scream followed by sounds of glass breaking and a fire igniting. The screen immediately goes black. EXT. BACK ROADS OF WOODLAND PARK - SAME - NIGHT Father Bishop is driving down the road in the pouring rain as Devon sits in shock. DEVON (looking at Father Bishop) What's going to happen to Ronnie? FATHER BISHOP Well, he'll be eternally placed with the demons he summoned. Once Satan is through with him, he'll be placed in the fiery pit where he will remain forever more. Satan's use for him would have been completed. He won him over. Now it's time to move on to the next. DEVON And you honestly believe that? FATHER BISHOP (looking at Devon) You better believe it. Ronnie will go where he rightfully belongs before he's able to drag anyone else down with him. DEVON (sobbing softly) I just can't believe that my brother had to lose his life this way. Why couldn't I have been there? FATHER BISHOP This is not your fault by no means. There's no way anyone could have ever predicted this. We are going to lay everything to rest tonight. You just have to stay strong for me. Okay? Father Bishop reaches over and clutches Devon's hand. DEVON (looking at Father Bishop through eyes of tears) Okay. The truck is seen pulling to the side of the road. Father Bishop quickly exits the vehicle in the rain and runs around the side to assist Devon out of the vehicle. FATHER BISHOP (taking Devon's hand) Come on, we haven't much time. Devon exists as Father Bishop closes the door behind her. He quickly runs to the back of the truck and reaches in the bed to grab a shovel. They both then take off walking towards the wooded area off the side of the road. DEVON What are we looking for? FATHER BISHOP I'm not sure but I'll know when I find it. Devon continues following Father Bishop as they walk deeper into the woods. As Devon begins to show signs of slowing down, Father Bishop turns to address her. FATHER BISHOP Devon, you mustn't give up. We're almost there. He takes Devon by the hand and assists her in walking through the woods. DEVON (starting to cry) I can't. This is too much. FATHER BISHOP (approaching Devon) Devon, listen to me. Your brother needs us. He is calling out to us to finish this for him. You have to be strong. Believe in yourself. I know you can do this. As Father Bishop glances off in the near distance, he immediately takes notice to two specific areas of freshly disturbed ground that appears to be raised. FATHER BISHOP (taking a deep breath) Oh, Father above, be with us. Devon looks off in that direction to behold the same sight. DEVON What is that? FATHER BISHOP (leading Devon) Come on. We'll find out. Both Devon and Father Bishop approach the area. As Devon stands above the proposed graves in the rain, she falls to her knees. DEVON (sobbing as she looks to the sky) Why? Father Bishop approaches her as he places his hands on her shoulders. FATHER BISHOP Devon, this is not God's work. This is the work of Satan and none other. However, we are here to lay this whole thing to rest. What I need you to do now is help me out and move to the side. Devon stands to her feet and steps to the side as Father Bishop begins to dig up the soft area. As the rain continues to fall, Father Bishop continues digging with Devon standing to the side, looking on. After a short while, he immediately stops as he places the shovel on the ground and begins digging with his hands. With his hands dug firmly in the dirt, Father Bishop slowly withdraws, holding what looks like a piece of human skull in his hand. FATHER BISHOP (looking up at Devon) We found it, Devon. We've found your brother. Devon again falls to her knees as she bows her head and sobs. FATHER BISHOP (Placing his hand on her back) It's okay. We can put him to rest now. As Devon raises her head to once again behold her brother's deathly grave, something catches her attention as she slowly stands to her feet. Father Bishop takes notice to Devon, looks in the direction that she is, and slowly stands to his feet. The rain immediately comes to a stop. As soft background music begins to play, both Devon and Father Bishop behold an angelic figure, not like that of a previous demonic or zombie type entity, but that of a godly angel that is slowly approaching them. As the spirit gets closer, it becomes clear that it is Devon's brother who has now become that of a saved soul and is no longer a demon bound for hell. DEVON (crying) Donnie? DONNIE (as in a tunneled voice) Yes, Devon, it is me. DEVON (softly crying) I, I don't understand. DONNIE (continuing) I know and I don't expect you to. I just had to see you one last time before I was able to move on. There's something you must know. DEVON Yes? DONNIE I'm not what you may think I am after all of this. DEVON (shaking her head) No, Donnie, I know you all to well to believe such a thing. DONNIE I was wrong on several accounts but that is something I must now face. I never meant for it to end like this. We are all lead astray at one point in our lives but I was able to come back from it. Not physically, but most importantly, spiritually. DEVON (crying as she nods her head) Yes. DONNIE I must go now. Please, don't ever lose faith. You must be strong. Donnie extends his hand and softly caresses Devon's face as if to have a beam of light shine directly on you. She closes her eyes and puts her hand to her cheek as the angelic figure immediately refrains. DONNIE (looking at Father Bishop) Thank you. FATHER BISHOP Don't thank me. Thank the one who truly deserves it. Devon places her hand over her mouth as she notices Donnie beginning to step back. DONNIE I must go now, but I will always be with you. Devon slowly waves goodbye as she tries her best to keep from breaking down. Donnie smiles and turns, as in a floating manner, to leave. As he begins to leave, the spirit of the murdered girl walks up from within the wooded area and takes his hand. They both turn once more towards Devon and Father Bishop and smile. As they again turn to leave, a beam of light immediately shines down from the heavens and draws them in as they disappear into thin air. As Devon and Father Bishop remain standing, while looking in that same direction, the night becomes completely still with not even a single movement in the woods. Father Bishop reaches out and grabs Devon's hand as she turns to him. DEVON Thank you. FATHER BISHOP No, thanks to us both. Father Bishop smiles as he breaks the silence. FATHER BISHOP Come on, let's get you out of those wet clothes. DEVON Okay. As they both begin to leave, Devon turns around once more as if to give off her final bow of respect to her brother. Her eyes begin to fill up with tears as Father Bishop firmly takes her by the hand. FATHER BISHOP Come on, Devon, we have to let him go. Devon walks alongside Father Bishop as they head out to leave. The screen, as well as the background noise, completely fades as the screen becomes black. NARRATOR (V.O.) The old Turner house burned completely to the ground and was never rebuilt. The lot, to this day, remains vacant and Ronnie's whereabouts remain unknown. Many sightings have been reported of ghosts and entities pacing through the cemetery as if to be searching for something. Others believe that it is the spirit of those who have yet to be given permission to cross over and may forever be caught in purgatory or earthly hell. Whatever the case, or whatever you may choose to believe, one thing is for sure. If you invite the demons over for dinner, they will claim their stay, never leave and end up having you for dinner. In the dead of night in the cemetery, a tall, red-colored like figure with scaly skin (as that of a reptile) in the form of a man (with horns on his head and large pointy ears) comes on screen standing at a distance. With its back turned to the audience, it begins slowly walking through the cemetery. It appears to be the same figure whose torso was viewable throughout the movie. As the creature begins to slowly move, the focus of the camera swiftly creates a close-up of the creature as it immediately jumps around with arms spread out, as if to take flight, with bent knees and stares straight out into the audience. It has a long defined chin with long sharp teeth and bright yellowish, scanty eyes. As it pauses for just a couple of seconds, it points straight out into the audience as if to single out a certain individual and then jumps towards the camera as the picture immediately fades to a black screen. TITLE OVER: THE END (or is it really?) FADE OUT.
