46 a.m.

I'm hearing what I believe to be

footsteps in my living room.

Proceed to move, slowly.

I'm afraid that many kinds

of intelligent hauntings

are easily startled.

I think the electro magnetic

fields are disturbing

the electrical.

That would be consistent

with intelligent hauntings

of this sort.

Okay.

This is it. I'm going in.

Hopefully, I'll catch it.

My name is Louis Arnold.

And I want to be

the next ghost getter.

Stan? What

are you doing?

Car got cold.

You're sleeping in your car now?

Trying to.

You mind if I crash here

tonight? What's with

the counter?

Just been working

on the tapes

for the Ghost Getters.

How did you get stuck

in the window?

I didn't want to wake you

by ringing the bell.

This is way harder

than it looks.

Come on. There.

I got your leg.

No. That's not going to work.

Make your body like a

board. Plank it.

Maybe we can take off

your sweater.

Don't take my clothes off.

Don't take 'em off?

No. It's cold.

I know it's cold.

That's why I left the car.

I might as well have

stayed in the car.

This is amazing.

If you are able to see

how many investigators

are here,

can you tap that number out?

Dude.

The ghost getter team

will stop at nothing

to document evidence

of the supernatural.

Our team is made up

of experts in every field.

And soon, our team

could include you.

With H.J leaving to join

the team Ghost Getters, Canada,

we are on the hunt

for a new member of our crew.

You have just one month

left to submit your best

paranormal evidence,

before it's too late.

I want it so bad.

You have a desire

to communicate with loved

ones who have crossed over.

Bought a telescope.

Yeah?

Figured I'm on the loose end,

you know?

Think about it.

The aliens that took Pam,

They did whatever hypnosis

or brainwashing thing they

do on the police,

so that the police don't

file a police report.

Meaning I'm the only one

that's on to them.

Meaning I'm the only one

that knows.

- Are you sure she was--

- Abducted?

Seriously.

How else...

How else do you explain...

a woman not showing up

on her wedding day?

There's so much...

There's so much

we don't understand.

Yeah, I know.

Holy sh*t, wow!

I'm on a break.

Oh, God!

What's up?

Do you remember when

you were a little kid?

You used to dream

of growing up.

Owning your very own

print and copy shop?

Nope.

Yeah, me neither.

Thank you.

Can I help you?

I need 15 of these

"no trespassing" signs

laminated, please.

Teenagers swimming in your pool?

No.

I have a little property about

an hour down route 199.

Just a broken down old barn.

I've been meaning

to tear it down.

It's dry rot, wet rot.

There's all sorts of

rotting you could get.

Some children try to get in

and stepping on nails.

You know how they

can get gas gangrene

with the nails sticking through

the bottom of their foot.

You know, everyone's suing

these days.

I don't want to get a lawsuit.

I don't want to sit

in court for hours.

I think theres rats too.

I really would rather people

steered clear of it.

Is it haunted?

Splint is, I don't want

people getting

a splinter either.

Um, so what makes you

think that it's haunted?

It's just very very creepy.

There's noises. I see lights.

I'd really rather people

steered clear of it.

Do you do banners?

Hey! We are going

ghost hunting this weekend!

I have plans.

What plans?

There's a pizza place...

Stan! This guy

came into my shop today

to print up some

"no trespassing" signs,

for this place he owns because

of how much mysterious activity

is being going on there.

I mean, this place is

a virgin site.

Aw man, I was pretty amped

for the pizza!

Are you serious? I'm telling

you that this is our chance!

To what?

To do something!

If we can document some awesome

evidence, we can maybe get on

the show and then actually,

do something with our lives.

Aren't you sick and

tired of working shitty jobs

just to make enough money

to pay for our shitty lives?

Maybe we can actually

be great at something.

Don't you want to know

that you're not crazy?

That there are unexplainable

phenomenon out there?

I'm not crazy.

My fiance was abducted

by aliens.

I know, man.

You in?

I'm in.

E.M.F. detector.

Write that down.

Got it.

Hey, do we write down

thermal camera?

Check.

All those jackets are sweet.

I know.

Sweet jackets.

Okay. Read back

to me what you have.

Flashlight, mini D.V. cameras,

boom mics, low level mics,

laser thermometers,

computer monitors, cables,

thermal imaging cameras,

night vision goggles,

Geiger counters, ouija board,

E.M.F. detectors,

sweet jackets

and new pants.

Dammit, that's a lot of stuff.

Yeah and we don't know

how to use any of it.

They have a tech specialist guy,

computer genius type, you know?

That's what we need.

Let me ask you something, chief.

When you watch the game, you

want to feel the f***in' sweat

and blood fly off the screen

and on to you?

Hear the crowd cheer so loud

it makes your brain vibrate

in your skull?

Do you want to be so close to

the action that you can almost

smell the cheerleader's breath?

Let me tell you something.

The resolution on

this mother f***er

is so intense, it'll literally

knock your eyeballs.

So, how many you want?

He's a genius.

He graduated from college

two years early

with an engineering degree.

Zak!

Hey, uncle Lou, what's up?
