Oh, f***.


Mark! Open the f***ing door!

Jesus, man, wh...

Seth, are you okay?

I thought Rob was coming with you.


What the hell's wrong?

Look, something happened to Rob.

Something f***ing took him

and was chasing after me.

Whoa, whoa, whoa.

Calm down. Calm down. Calm down.

What are you talking about?

Rob was in my truck.

We were driving here.

And out of nowhere, this blue light

explodes in front of me.

I almost hit a f***ing tree.

And it was making this

ear-piercing noise.

Seth, there's nothing outside.

When did this happen?

Right now, on Perry Hill Road.

Well, let's go.

Let's go?

Yeah, I want you to show

me where it happened.

I'm not f***ing going

back out there!

Did you hear what I said?

A beam sucked him

into the f***ing sky!

And you left him there.

He wasn't there.

He f***ing vanished.


Don't go out there.

Seth, you look like sh*t.

You better not be f***ing with me.

I swear on my mother's grave, Mark.

Something took Rob.

Who are you calling?

I'm calling Rob.


It's here.

Ah, f***!

Did you hear that?


What's going on?

Jen, babe, go back to sleep.

What was that noise?

I think we blew a breaker.

I'm gonna go look for it.


- Are you okay?

- Jen, please go back to sleep.

No, I'm staying down here.

You didn't blow a breaker.

This is getting f***ing ridiculous.


Don't waste your time.

Let's get the hell out of here.

Seth what the f*** is going on?

Something f***ing weird.

I'm gonna find out what it is.

Are you out of your goddamn mind?

Put the gun down, Mark.

Jen, stay here.

Keep an eye on her.


This isn't funny!

- Call the police.

- I am.

What's going on?

No! No! No!

Here in Derry, we've

had numerous reports

and now have confirmation the

entire county went completely dark.

Authorities have yet to find

an explanation for the outage.

Around the same time power was

lost throughout the county,

many residents reported

seeing lights in the sky.

It had nothing to do

with the blackouts.

It's now been five days since Mark

Fisher or Rob Baker have been seen.

According to police, the two

vanished sometime Friday night.

During the county-wide blackouts.

We have very little evidence as of now,

and we currently only have two witnesses,

both of whose accounts

are very vague.

Neither are suspects.

Jen Craven, fiance of Mark Fisher,

was the last to see him alive

on Friday, October the 13th.

She now claims the pair's

best friend, Seth Hampton,

may be responsible for

the disappearance.

We believe Mr. Hampton

may have more to do with these

disappearances than we previously thought.

Earlier today, Seth Hampton was

taken into police custody.

No, I've told you this.

I don't know where they are.

I don't know where either of them are.

I don't know what happened to them.

I don't know what the f*** is going on.

I have these nightmares, and I...

I see Rob, and I see him

screaming, and I see Mark...

What, do you think I cut the lights

to be able to have an alibi?

Mark was my best friend!

Citing a lack of evidence,

Seth Hampton has been released

by local authorities.

Hampton, claiming no memory of the

evening's events, maintains his innocence.

God damn it.

Dr. Sean Lewis' office.

How may I help you?

Hi. This is Seth Hampton.

I have an appointment on Friday,

but I'd like to change it.

Okay, sir.

- When would work best for you?

- Today.

Sometime today, please.

I'm sorry, sir. We don't have...

Look, it's an emergency.

Just tell the doctor who it is,

and I only need 15 minutes.

Hold on.

Dan Fisk live here in Derry,

which appears to be the epicenter

of last night's events.

Over 50 local eyewitnesses claim that

the lights appeared around midnight

and stayed prominently

in the sky...

Hello? Sir?

Yes. Hello?

Can you come in at 11:00?

I'll be there. Thank you so much.


I mean, I was nodding off.

My girl, she wakes me up, and I'm

thinking maybe it's, like, my neighbor

with the lawn mower, and it's this

loud, annoying, buzzing sound.

I go outside, and so this

light lights up the sky...

Hello. Roger's hardware.

- How can I help you?

- Nikki?

Nikki, it's Seth.

Uh, look, I have to go into

the doctor's this morning.

Could you just let Clancy

know I'll be late?

Sure, let me just put

you through to him.

No, no. That's okay.

Just tell him I'll be in by 1:00.


'Cause I remember...

I remember a few years ago,

last time we had something like this

happen, the whole town shut down,

so I'm... I'm a little concerned.

These mysterious events have many people

asking, does this have anything to do

with the recent power outages

that have plagued the county?

Many locals claim that these lights are

eerily similar to ones that appeared

in the night sky over Maine

almost two years ago.

Hey, hon.


You still getting a

ride home from Tracy?

As far as I know.

You talked to the mechanic, right?

Yeah, He said it'd be

ready this afternoon.

Just put it on my card.

Are you sure?


Well, I'm gonna head in.

I'll see you tonight.

Something wrong?

No. I'm fine.

Can I have a kiss?

I'll see you later.

Hey, Jen.

Sorry. I didn't mean to interrupt you.

Oh, that's okay. I'm just zoning out.

So how you doing? Did you

have a good weekend?

Yeah. It was relaxing.

Good. Good.

Listen, Jen, I hate

to do this to you.
