[crickets chirping]

[piano trill]


Danced in the moonlight

Held hands in the park

We strolled by the river

And kissed in the dark

I've never had the glow

I feel tonight

It's a miracle

moment of love


This is it.

Wow, baby.

This is so romantic.


Nothing but the best

for my best girl.

[bushes rustling]

I only know

I never felt so right.

It's a miracle

moment of love

If this isn't real...

I think there's

something out there.

I'm sure it's just the wind

or a cat or something.

No baby, I'm serious.

[music stops]

I'll go check it out.

Be right back.

[thud, screaming]


[heavy breathing]


Somebody help me!

Oh God it hurts!

[screaming, crying]

Oh God!


[baby cooing]


It's a girl.

[women vocalizing]

[thunder cracks]

[light piano music]

[birds chirping]

[thunder cracks]


- Jason!

- Casey?

You got such

a beautiful name.



I could see why you

might want to call me that.

Okay. Mom.


She's your mother.

Show some respect.

Sure thing, Mr. Pollack.

Stop trying to impress

your sister's friends.

Mom, that's disgusting.

Don't get your hopes up,


Becky thinks you're a loser.

All right, you guys.

Get it all out

of your system

or else you're gonna be

sleeping outside tonight.

Not you, Becky.

You're cool.

[ominous music]


How are you?


Steve's an a-hole.

[clears throat]

He knew three weeks ago,

so I don't really care

what he thinks.

He can bring in a sub.

Okay. It's all right.

Go back to sleep.

I can't sleep.

I'm starting to pick up

too much energy.


How about you, kids?

Anyone else feel that

sweet energy?

Your mom didn't tell you

the cabin's built

on a pile of magic rocks?

Okay, we don't need

to get into this with them.

Get into what?

Your mom's trying

to cure me.

Please tell me we're not

going to a hippie commune.

No, we're not going

to a hippie commune.

It's just a vacation.

On top of a deposit

of iron oxide.

Don't overthink it!

There are places like this

all over the world.

It's totally normal.

Your mom's friend Mika

is into hoodoo.

She's not into hoodoo.

It's what she does

for a living.

Does what for a living?

Becky doesn't want

to hear this, right?

Yeah, Becky wants

to hear this.

You want to hear this,


I, I do want to hear this?

Yeah. See?

She wants to hear this.

All right, this is just

what Mika told me.

But she said

that if you live

on top of this energy

for a while,

then it kind of realigns

everything inside of you.

Sounds kind of like


Yeah well, let's hope

this bullshit works.

[uplifting music]

That's it?

Help your dad

with the bags.

I'm really sorry about this.

It's okay.


Because I thought

it was gonna be like,

fun in the mountains,

not weird, creepy

energy house.

Seriously, it is fun.

Sounds creepy.

Oh, Mika says

that the front door

is gonna be locked.

We have to go

around the side.

It's supposed to be

cooler on the inside.

Well, by "cooler,"

I hope you mean warmer

because it's freezing.

All right, buddy.

Help me lift...

What do you think?

Well, it's a house.

What do you think?

Kind of rustic.

Wait til we get

the fire going.

It's nice.


Honey, go open

the front door

and help your brother

with the groceries.

Thank you.

No, you're good.

Let me help.

I already dragged

you out here.

I don't need you to help

with the groceries.

Are you gonna be okay

in here with them?

They're just your parents.


But they're crazy.

Go help your brother.
