Synopsis: Soon after moving into a suburban tract home, Katie (Katie Featherston) and Micah (Micah Sloat) become increasingly disturbed by what appears to be a supernatural presence. Hoping to capture evidence of it on film, they set up video cameras in the house but are not prepared for the terrifying events that follow.

COLLIN (V.O.)

I believe all paranormal mysteries

have a scientific explanation...

INT. PCI --CONTINUOUS

A combination office/lab. COLLIN CLARK in the lab area.

20’s, white, geeky, chip on his shoulder. He’s repairing a

homemade device called THE M-PAC. It looks like a cross

between an assault pistol and an ionic blow dryer.

COLLIN:

...and technology will be the key

to unlocking them.

Angle on ATHENA ORTIZ; Latina, 20’s, street edge, hot but not

on purpose. She’s at the reception desk reading a book.

ATHENA:

Some things will always be

ATHENA (cont'd)

The most you can do is harness

their energy and use them for good.

COLLIN:

(scoffs) Is that like the Witch’s

Hippocratic Oath?

ATHENA:

I’m a bruja.

COLLIN:

My mistake. A bruja.

ATHENA:

Runs in the family. My

grandmother’s a bruja too. In the

barrio she’s famous.

COLLIN:

Oh really?

ATHENA:

Yes, really. I’ve seen her do

amazing things and she doesn’t need

any technology made from stuff you

can get at Radio Shack.

Stung, Collin starts to retort but Josh enters with a BAG OF

DONUTS.

JOSH:

Good morning.

ATHENA:

Morning, Josh.

JOSH:

(off the bag) Apple fritter?

ATHENA:

Maybe some other time, like when

I’m skinny and have a dental plan.

(then) Messages. A Mr. Markett

called. He thinks his wife was a

victim of spontaneous combustion

and he’d like you to investigate

and The New Age Society wants you

to submit a paper on The Taos Hum

Phenomenon.

JOSH:

Screen Mr. Markett, see if he

really had a wife and I don’t have

time to submit a paper.

ATHENA:

We also have that consultation with

Jim Crowley, the dairy farmer? We

should leave soon.

Josh crosses to Collin.

JOSH:

Apple fritter?

COLLIN:

The new girl is not working out.
