Don't Knock Twice

Synopsis: The sculptor Jess unsuccessfully tries to retrieve the custody of her teenage daughter Chloe. During the night, Chloe and her boyfriend Danny play a prank challenging an urban legend: and they knock twice on the door of the witch Mary Aminov. Soon Danny is hunted down by a fiend and vanishes. When Chloe is haunted by the evil spirit, she flees to the house of her estranged mother and her husband Ben to stay with her mother. Soon the demon finds her and haunts the house while Ben is traveling. Jess' model Tira sees darkness around Chloe and she researches the Internet about the mystery. Meanwhile Detective Boardman is investigating the disappearance of Danny and suspects Jess is manipulating her troubled daughter.

- So, Ben, have you ever

sat for her?

- God, no. No.

Her subjects are, um,

mothers, babies

so she has no use for me.

- I've read

about your latest show.


It must be a real thrill to do

all that hard work come good.

-Yeah, it went down a storm

and she got a couple

of commissions

which is always a bonus.

- Your success will really help

your application.

Everyone here at the home

is thrilled

that you've applied for custody.

I know that

your recent relationship

with your daughter

hasn't been easy

but Chloe needs this

as much as you do.

-Hi, Chloe.

- I'll leave you to it.

- Wow, my photo of you

is really out of date.

So, Louisa said that you were

thinking about our offer.

Come and stay with us,

see how you feel.

We've got a great bedroom.

The house is in a quiet


but it's just a short

train ride...

-why are you doing this?

-I was hoping..

Now that I've moved back

for good

that you and I could spend

some time together.

- Nine years ago

was when I needed you.

Didn't want me then.

-I did.


I... I..

-Don't come here again.

Don't call me.

Just leave me the f*ck alone.


- Chloe, please don't leave.

- Jess, you know how

important tonight is for me.

Will you please get ready?

We're going to be late.


I've already moved this dinner

twice because of you.

- Tira, do you mind

if we pick this up next week?

-Of course.

- We need to leave

in 20 minutes.

-Bye, Ben!

Can you hold her?

-Um, yeah.

Okay. Hi.


- Don't be sad

about your daughter.

A mother's love for her child

is very powerful.

This is a talas.

Its magic will help

your daughter

see the love in your heart.

-It's pretty. Thank you.

-You're welcome. Bye.


- Fucking kids.

- Do you remember

when we used to play that game?

You should see Mary's house now.

They knocked down

the whole street.


I wanna show you something.

- But I haven't finished.

- It looks great to me.

You know kids are scared

to come here now?

They say that 'cause Mary's dead

there's no one left

to feed the demon.

They reckon

it's still trapped in there

waiting for someone to knock.

- Why are we even here?

You know I hate this place.

- Once to wake her from her bed.

Twice to raise her

from the dead.

If you knock her door,

she still hears it.

Sooner or later she comes

knockin' for you.

- That's not funny.

She took Michael.

-It's just a story.

I'm sorry.

I, I didn't wanna upset you.

Look. I'll prove it to ya.

Gonna have a go?



- Hah!

- Oh, f*ck!

You are such a shit!

- That was great.

-Why would you do that?

-Your face.

Wait, I'm sorry,

I'm joking, I'm joking.

Come on. You alright?


It's coming.

Get out.


-Sorry, did I wake you?

-I don't feel right, chlo.

-Hang on. Two secs.

Sorry, that's so creepy.

I thought someone was

at my door.


- Danny's phone.

Leave a message.

-Where are you?

Just call me, okay?


- Run for your life.


- Chlo..


- Do you mind?

The cleaners wanna do the room.

- Yeah, sorry.

I'll just get my phone.

Someone open the door! Help!

Someone open the door!

Someone open the door!

Open the door! Open the door!


Help, open the door! Please!


-What's going on?



-There's someone here.



-No, no. Wait there.

-Can I stay?

- Okay. Bye.

So, um, they said

that it's okay for a few nights

but you have to call Louisa

in the morning.

- It's lovely to have you here,


Okay, I'll see you

in the morning.

-Sorry about the mess.
