Darkness Wakes


(dramatic music)

(gentle music)

The weight gets heavy

As I'm walking through

the storm

I ain't no fighter

ain't no fighter

But I try to carry on

'Cause I've walked

through the valley of love

And I'm hoping to get back

I've never been the type to


But here I go, here I go

Love me to pieces

Love me to the bone

Love me when it's over

Love me when I'm gone

Love me to pieces

Love me to the bone

Love me when it's over

Love me when I'm gone

(gentle music)

(door creaking open)

Ah, you must be Charlotte.

Hi, yes I'm so sorry I'm late.

Yes, yes please come in.

Thank you.

[Mr. Farrow] Find us alright?

Yes, yeah kind of.

We are a little off

the beaten track.

So you're a student.

Yes, psychology.

Ah, the study of the mind.


Well, aren't you

a pretty thing.

Isn't she a pretty thing


She certainly is.

So the cat.

Ah, yes.

My wife and I are attending

an event this week,

and then find ourselves

without a cat sitter.

We're looking for the sitter

to stay for three nights

Friday through Monday.

Would that be any

problem for you?

No. no, that would be okay.

Well, it isn't easy for us to

entrust our house to a

complete stranger.

So we're being vigilante.

We don't want to

return to discover

that our home has been the scene

of a rave

or something

One does hear stories.

As we want this responsibility

to be taken seriously

we're prepared to pay


We feel 200 pounds a night

is more than

reasonable for what

we're asking.

Yes, yes that sounds

very reasonable.

You understand

it's not just a question

of looking after our cat.

It's also about looking after

our home.

Oh, of course

I'd respect your home

and everything in it absolutely.

Well, thank you for coming.

We'll let you know.

It was weird.

The people are seriously odd,

and the house is

as creepy as it gets.


But they're offering 200

pounds a night.

200 that's great.

But they haven't offered it to

me so.

(cellphone ringing)

Is that Seth?

Ah, come on give the guy a


He's 24.

You're super hot.

What were you expecting?

That he wouldn't be

dying to sleep with you.

I was expecting

not to be made to feel

like a frigid bitch

all the time.

Well, in all fairness

you guys have been together for

what like

four months.

Yeah, well I don't care.

I don't care how long it's been.

I don't care that that's

what people expect me to do.

I don't care that it's just sex.

I don't want just sex.

I want something real.

I want it to be special.

I don't just wanna do it

and have it mean nothing.

I don't just wanna do it

and have it mean something.

I wanna do it and

have it mean everything.


You are a frigid bitch.


(cellphone ringing)

You can't deny the guy is


It's not him actually.

- Hello.

- Is that Charlotte?

Hi, Mr. Farrow.

[Mr. Farrow] Are you still

available this weekend?

- Yeah.

- Good.

In that case we'd like to

offer you the position.

- Oh, that's great.

- Starting tomorrow.

Oh, cool.

Yeah, thank you very much.

Yeah, of course.

[Mr. Farrow] We'll expect you

around 11.

Okay, I'll see you

tomorrow then.

[Mr. Farrow] Good.

- Okay.

- Good.

Thanks, bye, bye.

Looks like I got the job.

(tense music)

I don't know if you're

much of a drinker,

but you're welcome to help

yourself to whatever's here.


The wine cellar's down there.

Again feel free to help


Thank you that's

very kind of you.

The lot is in there.

There's tin food, bottled water,

cat food

cat litter that sort of thing.

She keeps herself to herself.
