Genre: Horror
Director(s): Lawrence Fowler

(suspenseful orchestral music)

(fire crackling)

[Witch] They're coming for me.

I will never forget.

I will never forgive.


I will live on.

(low rumbling)

(low thudding)

(dramatic orchestral music)

Come along, Chloe.

We're almost there.

I want to go home.

We can't.


It isn't safe anymore.

I want to go home.

Be brave, Chloe, please.

This is our new home.

No, it's not.

[Arthur] Mrs. Gray.

You must be Arthur.

[Arthur] It's good

to meet you, Mrs. Gray.

Please, Adeline.

Is everything all right?

Hiding behind that tree

is my daughter, Chloe.

She's not accustomed

to such change.

She left so much behind.

She's not alone.

We just have to

keep moving forward.

I'm so sorry we're late.

[Arthur] Don't be.

We don't claim to

be easy to find.

Are we close to the house?


This way.

Have you come far?


Our street was bombed

three days ago.

It's no place for a

child at the moment.

Sounds like you were

lucky to get out alive.

We were.

Well, you'll be

as far out of sight

as it is possible to be here.

You'll be staying at

the village's oldest

and most secluded building.

There are even

some in the village

who are unaware of the

house in the woods.

Here we are.

(suspenseful orchestral music)

Brynhill Manor.

[Adeline] Manor?

[Arthur] Not what

you were expecting?

You never mentioned we were

staying at a manor house.

I thought I

would surprise you.


(door unlocking)

It has been vacant

for some time.

It's so vast,

so cold.

You'll find blankets

in your bedrooms,

lanterns too.

How can you expect

us to stay here?

It's all I have to offer.

Then we will look elsewhere.

There's nowhere else here.

The next village

is an hour's walk.

But it's...

All you can afford.

It's a roof over your

heads, nevertheless.

Shall we continue?

I'll show you around.

Unpack your bag, Chloe.

But, Mommy.

Unpack your bag, please.

My father bought the

manor many years ago

with the aim of turning

it into our family home,

but he died before he ever

had a chance to complete it.

I've had some generous offers

to take it off my hands,

but, in the end, I've

rejected them all.

I realized that deep down,

I didn't have the heart to

part with it permanently.

Why have you let us stay here.

This place has so

much unknown history,

so much mystique that it had

intended to remain untouched,

but your letter opened my eyes.

I knew it was finally time

to reopen these doors.

It's ready for a new

chapter, a new purpose,

a new family.

I've installed a bed

for you in there

and another one

for Chloe in there.

(door slamming)

(ominous orchestral music)

What was that?

[Arthur] It's locked.

Where does this door lead?

[Arthur] To the east wing.

What' down there?

Not much, it's

fallen into disrepair.

Do you have the key?

Not on me, I'm afraid.

But you have dozens

of keys in your pockets.

Surely one of them is...

I don't have it, Mrs. Gray.

All right.

We were hoping to be

here for six months,

maybe more.

You can stay here

as long as you need.

Would you like

to discuss payment?

I can only offer five

shillings a week.

I won't accept a penny.

No, I'm not asking

for any charity.

I will pay my way.

Mrs. Gray, I

only want to help.

Thank you, Arthur.

(dreamy orchestral music)

I'm so cold, Mom.


It's okay.

They can't hurt us here.

Are we ever going back?

Are we ever going home?

Of course we are, sweetheart.

The war must come to an end.


It's impossible to say.

For the meantime,

promise me you'll make

the best of it here.
