Good morning, Doctor.

I'm not afraid anymore.

I'm good.

It worked.

I feel so much better

than even yesterday.

Sleeping better and

feeling a lot better.

It will be great to join

up with my family again.

Next week's my daughter's birthday.

It would be quite a great homecoming.

I just want to say, Dr. Greiss,

that I'm feeling a lot better

today than I was yesterday,

and yesterday I was feeling

better than before that and

tomorrow I'm gonna feel better.

Doctor, please! You already helped me,

Dr. Greiss, I'm fine!

( THEME MUSIC PLAYING )

(ANNOUNCER-1 V.O.)

Multiple sources reporting

that a fire has broken out

at Eloise causing significant...

(ANNOUNCER-2 V.O.)

Witnesses reported seeing

smoke and hearing screams

a little after 10:00 o'clock

last night as firefighters

rushed to the scene...

(ANNOUNCER-1 V.O.)

Reportedly broke out

just after 10:
00 PM last night.

The cause of the fire is not

yet known but investigators

believe it was intentional...

(ANNOUNCERS V.O.)

Multiple casualties, among them,

Dr. H. H. Greiss,

Chief physician at Eloise

known for his controversial

and brutal therapies.

(ANNOUNCER-1 V.O.)

And vicious medical experiments.

It's also believed that

many patients perished

in the fire as well...

(ANNOUNCER-2 V.O.)

Firefighters rushed

to the scene but were too late

for many patients and staff

who were trapped on

the upper floors of Eloise

and are believed to have

died in the blaze.

(NARRATOR V.O.)

In the years since its closing

in 1982 after the fire.

Countless locals have explored

the vacant buildings

of Eloise and reported

chilling tales of hearing voices

or screams and in some cases,

seeing apparitions

or even ghosts

of deceased patients and staff

roaming the asylum's empty,

decrepit corridors,

prisoners still.

One former patient was reported

as saying,

"People tried to escape all the time."

"But once you're committed

into Eloise, you can't leave."

"You can never leave."

( SCREAMS )

( BABY CRIES )

( DOOR CLOSES )

Hello, Pia.

My name is Detective Frazer.

I'd like to ask you a couple

questions, if you don't mind.

Some kids found the body of

this man at Eloise two days ago.

In your statement, you had

mentioned a Dell Richards.

Is that him?

( GUN FIRES )

After we discovered the body,

we decided to scour

the building and look

for your brother, Scott.

And uh, Jacob Martin, prior statement.

We did find your brother's remains.

The gas explosion was so intense

that only dental records

were able to make the positive ID.

But we can't find Jacob Martin.

During the course of my investigation,

I've come across some things that are

very strange, and I'm hoping that

you can help me wrap

my mind around them.

This is an old case file

from a patient at Eloise.

In it is Jacob Martin's

birth certificate and these.

Can you explain these, Pia?

Pia?

[FRAZER] Pia?

( HARD ROCK MUSIC )

All right, try again now.

( ENGINE REVS )

Yeah, that's the sound.

Should be good, buddy.

Jacob, you got a call inside.

Yeah, Jacob here.

(DAVIES OVER PHONE)

Jacob, finally, I've been trying

to reach you for a week.

It's Arlen Davies, your father's lawyer.

Yeah, well, I haven't spoken

to my father in years.

(DAVIES OVER PHONE) I see, well,

I hate to be the one to tell you

but your father has passed.

Wait, what?

(DAVIES OVER PHONE)

I realize this must be a shock.

Since you are his only surviving heir,

there are important details

that need to be discussed

concerning the estate.

The funeral's tomorrow

at Elwood Cemetery, 2:00 PM.

Yeah.

(DAVIES OVER PHONE)

Perhaps we can talk afterward.

- Yeah, okay.

- I'm sorry for your loss.

I'll be there.

Who was that?

Oh, nobody.

You all right?

Yeah... I'm fine.

I just gotta go up

to Detroit for a few days.

Why?

My dad died.

( ROCK MUSIC FADES UP )

[DAVIES] I was very sorry that

you weren't able to make it

to the funeral.

It was a lovely service.

I realize this must be a very

emotional time for you.

We haven't really spoken since he

sent me to Juvie when I was 16.

Well, it was the court

that sent you to Juvie.

I don't need to be rude, Mr. Davies,

but if you please,

just get down to bussiness here.

In the last two days,

I'm afraid a small

complication has arisen.

There's no more money, is there?

No, there's money all right.

And with no siblings and no

mother, it all falls to you.

And then there is an account in

the amount of $1.2 million.

That's before taxes of course.

Turn of the last century

your people were pretty big

into real estate.

What's the problem exactly?

His sister, your aunt.

Genevieve Martin.

What aunt?

She was committed to Eloise

Insane Asylum in the late 1960s.

A decade or so later it closed,

but she was never released.

Most probable reason, of course,

is that she died there.

So, you are still the sole inheritor

with proof of her death.

If we have to have her declared dead,

you won't see a dime for seven years.

So, where do I find proof?

Well, as a happened. Eloise still

has a small administrative office.

I suggest that you stop

by there tomorrow.

As a relative, you can request

the records.

Thank you.

There's something you should know.

Your father had cancer

the last three years.

But, it wasn't the cancer

that killed him.

When things got really bad,

he decided to take his own life.

With a straight razor.

I didn't know.

When things got really bad,

( EERIE MUSIC FADES UP )

Holy sh*t!

What the f*** are you doing

with that razor?

You scared the sh*t out of me.

What the f*** are you

doing in a ski mask?

Look, I saw the lights on,

took a chance.

Look, I was f***ing with you, okay?

Did you hear about my old man?

Yeah, I'm sorry.

- Don't be.

- Yo, man.

Oh, you scared of a little

straight razor?

Come on!

( LAUGHING )

What's up, man, how you doing?

I'm good, man.

Yeah, I can see, you're like

the GQ of delinquency.

Thugs can have style, too...

thugs can have style.

( MUSIC PLAYING )

What can I get ya'?

I will have a Last Word.

Wait, if you don't know how to make it,

I mean, I can show you.

I'm a pretty good bartender myself.

Beer is good, too.

Uh... just two Atwaters, please.

I'm gonna need to see some ID.

Really? I'm like 30.

Awe, just a baby.

Sit anywhere, I'll find you.

It's a tradition around here.

The birthday boy buys everyone a round.

Oh sh*t.

Yeah!

Really? That's a great tradition.

( CROWD CHEERING )

Happy birthday. Man, I didn't

know it was your birthday.

It's not, it's tomorrow.

Anyway, what's up with

you, man? How's work?

I've been straight for like,

what? Two years now.

You've been straight for two

years? Running around with

a ski mask on, huh?

I got smarter, you know,

I no longer wear them

in bars, you know?

You evolved, that's nice, man.
