Hello, anybody home?

- You're Miss Benton?

- Yes. How do you know my name?

hey told us you were coming.


Someone from the village.

He told me to show you to your room

and make sure you stay put.

At 5:
00 sharp, Mr. Basilio

will come in his car to pick you up.

Who is this Basilio?

How should I know?

I've heard the name,

but I don't know Mr. Basilio personally.

I'll show you to your room.

Do you know the owners

of Monteserate mansion?


Nobody lives in that valley.

You can't be serious.

You're going there?

I am. I must go to the mansion.

I'm expected.

Well, don't say I didn't warn you.

As you can see,

I gave you the best room.

hank you.

You're not feeling well, miss?

It's so hot.

I had a terrible nightmare.

I can't get back to sleep.

Of course not, in this weather.

It's hot and damp here all year long.

- Do you live in the village?

- No, I'm just working here for now.

- Would you happen to be a writer?

- No, I'm a doctor.

ell me if I'm bothering you.

Not at all.

I'd like to ask your advice.

I'm so flustered I hardly know

where I am. It's strange.

Why did the innkeeper say that?

She says nobody lives at Monteserate.

But I know it's not true.

My whole family lives there.

I came from London to see them.

hey write me every week.

Shouldn't I go?

ell me what you think.

Yes, you should go.

Why such doubts?

You must be brave when you have a goal.

And your goal is Monteserate.

You must go there.

You mustn't back down.

"Basilio will drive you to the house.

Your uncle Howard."

Just a minute.

I'll get my suitcase.

For an hour, we've been driving

into the depths of the valley.

I feel like I'm in a strange dream.

Even the songs of the birds

are unfamiliar to my ears.

It seems that what I hear...

are birds of prey.

Birds of prey.

Come on.

It can't be.

At the bottom of a valley?

hese flowers...

these plants...

bursting with life...

and yet...

what strange colors...

such a troubling, unknown scent.

Where are we?

What is this realm

of soft shadows and silence?

As sad as a cemetery

on an autumn morning.

Weren't you expecting me?

"So quickly she crossed the field

that no one saw her after a moment.

hey were all quickly transformed

for she was such a beauty."

Isaiah, verse 777.

You must be Uncle oward.

Yes, I'm your old Uncle oward,

happy to welcome you to Monteserate.

he magic of this music

drew you to the depths of the valley.

You're the last one

Uncle Howard was expecting.

Finally, you've come here

from so far away.

Your face is ice cold!

erminia is expecting you.

Go very quickly.

What's happened to her?

She's dying, that's all.

And you sit here playing waltzes?

Would you rather

I played a funeral march?

Perhaps she'd like that.

I think she'd prefer the waltz.

You can't be serious.

You're wrong. Remember

that death is no laughing matter.

I know her tastes.

I know who she is.

She's welcome in this house.

I play in her honor.

Nothing is too good for her.

Aren't you going to say hello?

- hat's Carmenze.

- Who is she?

I told you. She's Carmenze.

She's part of the family.


- Why did you do that?

- No reason.

- What's wrong?

- Nothing.

I'd just like to follow

in dear Herminia's footsteps.

I'm going.

Are you Aunt Abigail?

Yes, I'm your aunt.

Stupid little bitch!

It's obvious you come from a brothel!

Once a whore, always a whore!

You're always complaining!

Don't count on me to get

the worms out of your skin!

Your fatal insults slide right off
