Darkness

Synopsis: There's something in this house... Something ancient and dark that remains still, hidden and silent. It can only wait, having been concealed in the shadows for years. In fact, its milieu is darkness. Only in it can it show itself and move. It even takes its name: DARKNESS. It's lived here since someone tried to call it, more than forty years ago. Because this house hides a secret, a terrible past, an inconceivably evil act... Seven children, faceless people, a circle that must be completed. And blood, lots of blood...

That's when you left for the States?

Why did you have to?

Well, your grandparents decided

to split up and...

I didn't have a choice

I had to go.

With your mom?

That's right.

Are you and mom going

- To split up?

- No.

Only families that don't get

along split up.

We get along,

don't we?

Yeah.

It's the second day and I bet

I'm the only one late.

Don't worry. You'll make it.

'We're like the lonely wildebeest

bleating his plaintive poetry

to the infinite herd."

Hey dad, do you even know

what a wildebeest is?

Sure it's...

It's like a cow.

And what's your cow saying?

"Get your ass

out of my face."

"Get your ass

out of my face."

Dad look, it worked.

Dad?

Hey, shithead,

what are you doing? Move it!

F*ck!

Help me!

Help me!

Please!

- When was his last attack?

- More than ten years ago.

Haughtlngton is unpredictable,

but it doesn't have to be serious.

As quickly as it has come,

it can go.

I don't know.

I'm going to give him Haloperidol.

But if he does have an attack,

you know about the risk of choking.

Just keep a close eye on him.

This couldn't come

at a worse time.

Don't worry. Everything will be fine.

Trust me.

Dad.

I'm okay, sweetie.

Nothing's happened.

Come on, let's go inside.

We've still got a lot

of work ahead of us.

This is going to be the best house

in the whole world.

Mom?

What happened?

Your father had a small attack,

but it's nothing,

don't worry.

I've been talking

to your grandfather.

He's got to go back on medication

for a while and that's all.

Mom.

It's starting again.

Nothing is starting again.

This is an isolated incident.

Don't blow it out of proportion.

You remember what happened.

You know exactly what this is.

And just now.

Just now what?

We're completely isolated.
