[PROJECTOR CLICKING]

[WATER DRIPPING]

[MAN BREATHING HEAVILY]

[INTENSE MUSIC]

[CHALK SCREECHING]

It was my father's

religious beliefs

that destroyed

our family.

[WINGS FLUTTERING]

[INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC]

We have to be so very

careful what we believe in.

Hello.

There's a... there's a little

lad coming through to me now.

Come on, come on.

He wants to talk

to someone.

Oh, he's a little...

he's a little lad

and he... and he's

lookin' for his mom.

He's sayin' his name

is... is Rob or Robbie.

Is that... Is that you,

sweetheart?

Stand up, my love.

Mark Van Rhys is one of the

UK's most popular psychics.

He believes that we're making a

documentary about his special powers

whereas, in fact, we are investigating

the many, many complaints

that have been made

against him.

Do what this lady has done

and accept the message.

Mark?

Mark, can you hear me?

Oh, just give us a sign.

Scratch your nose

for a sec, see.

Oh, thank God for that.

It's Steph, right?

The woman's name's Steph.

He calls you mom, but

he's... he's telling me

your name is Steph?

[SOBS]

Oh, my God.

Is... Is that right,

my love?

- Are you Steph?

- Yeah.

Okay,

so before the show starts

Van Rhys' team

have audience members

fill out one of these

prayer cards.

There are the name

and details

of the person

they wish to contact

who has passed over

to the other side.

The team then steal

this information

and they feed it back

to Van Rhys

through a hidden earpiece,

which I just hacked into

and, hey, presto,

he's psychic.

[GASPS]

My blood hurts, mommy.

My blood hurts.

Why is he saying that?

[SOBS]

He had leukemia.

Poor little lamb.

Oh, he's got a cheeky

little smile, hasn't he?

[LAUGHS]

Yes.

Children often make

the best connection

because they're so pure,

you see.

He was such a good boy.

He still is, my sweet,

he still is.

He says he's happy

but he does miss

your cooking.

Ladies and gentlemen,

I am sorry to interrupt.

My name is

Professor Philip Goodman

from the TV program

"Psychic Cheats."

Mr. Van Rhys,

we have got..

Mr. Van Rhys,

we have got proof

that you are being fed information

through a hidden earpiece

and you are passing it off

as contact with the dead...

- Excuse me, sir.

- I beg your pardon.

This is gonna be broadcast

on national television.

Can you deny that you

were using an earpiece?

That's slander.

I can assure you,

you will be hearing

from my solicitor

in due course.

His assistant just

told him that Robbie

was in

Christchurch Hospital.

I can play you the tape.

I'm sorry.

Christchurch Hospital!

[SOBS]

He's lyin', isn't he?

[SOBBING]

The idea of us

and our loved ones dying

just ceasing to exist

is so awful

that we'll believe

anything which gives us hope

that there might be

something beyond.

That fear is known

as existential terror

and the man who coined that phrase was Dr.

Charles Cameron.

So why do you think

the voices

come through you, Jean?

'Cause we love her.

And how many voices

are there?

I moved back in.

I thought it would help.

She's only here 'cause

she ran out of booze.

Mom.

She fingered herself

last night

thinkin'

about John Travolta.

Daddy sees everything.

[SHATTERS]

Jesus!

I've seen this before.

Your mother

feels abandoned

at the death

of your father.

Is she possessed?

No, she's angry that

her husband had died.

As for the vase..

[SHATTERS]

...I did that.

The brain sees

what it wants to see.

When I saw that clip

when I was a boy

it was like

a lightning bolt struck me

'cause it was like

somebody saying
