Ghosts of Darkness

Synopsis: Two paranormal investigators are unexpectedly thrown together in the hope of solving a 100 year mystery. Locked for three nights in a house with a dark and unsettling past, the two investigators must put their differences to one side and work together. Scepticism and showmanship are soon put to one side when the two investigators realise there is more at stake than just their professional reputation. For once they have stumbled onto the real thing, but this time it's their own lives at stake.

- Do you remember what I

told you the other night?

Close your eyes, count to

five, and take a deep breath.

It's all in your

imagination, I promise.

There are no ghosts

in this house.

There's no monster under the bed

and there's definitely no

bad man in your cupboard.

Now, come on, go back to sleep.

Look, let's talk about

this in the morning.


(eerie orchestral music)



- Look, it's been going

on for three nights, now.

It has to stop.

- Will you give her a break?

It's just gonna take her a

while to settle in, that's all.

- Right, so in the

meantime I just keep goin'

to work with only two

hours sleep every night.

- Honestly, that room

gives me the creeps, too.

Why don't we set her

up in another room?

Just until that

one's been decorated.

- Great idea, yeah.

Let's spend some more money.

- It was your idea to move here.

- Drop it.

Thank you, thanks for

reminding me again.

- Let's not do this today.

- So, you finally decided

to get up, did you?

- There's cereal on the counter.

- Oh yeah, remember I've

got a meeting tonight,

so I'm going to be back late.

- [Laura] How late?

- Late.

Come on, silly,

you heard your mom,

cereal's on the counter.

You don't wanna be

late for school.


- Mike?

(clock chiming)




- [Mike] Please.


(eerie orchestral music)

- Hello.

I got your card.

It's Jack, Jack Donavan.

- [Jonathan] Hello,

is anyone there?


Ah, thank God.

I thought I was going mad.

And if I am mad,

then it is mercy.

May the gods pity the man

who, in his callousness,

remains sane until

the hideous end.

Jonathan Blazer, and you are?

- Jack, Jack Donavan.

- Yes, it's a pleasure

to meet you, Jack.

Now, how can I be of service?

- That's what I

was gonna ask you.

I got this card with

this house's address

and my name on it.

- Well, that is interesting.

I found this card in my

mailbox about two days ago.

Plot thickens.

- Maybe I can be

of help, gentlemen.

If you'd follow me.

In front of you

lies over 200 years

of this building's history

dating back to the 18th century.

I can assure you that everything

in that document took

place within these walls.

We invited you both here,

based purely on your reputation

within this particular field.

My client was very specific

that you two, and only you

two, should be contacted.

- So, what exactly is

it I can do to help,

a little house

clearance, seance maybe,

something to spook the spooks?

A little John Blazer special.

- So, your a medium.

- Certainly not, I'm a psychic.

And dare I say the best they

have in this two-horse town.

- Look, I appreciate

your client's invitation

but firstly, I work alone,

and secondly, I work in the

realms of the real world.

- Yuck.

- If you're looking for some

kind of paranormal clown

to promote this place

to the tourists,

then believe me, you've

got the wrong man.

- So, I take it

you're a nonbeliever.

- I believe you're full of shit.

- Wow, I mean that's just

unprofessional, isn't it?

- I make a living out

of exposing frauds,

and trust me when I say this,

I'm the best at what I do.

- See, I'm sensing a

little bit of hostility.

It's coming from this

side of the sofa.

I mean, are you getting this?

- Is this the best you could do?

Is this some kind of joke?

- I would appreciate it if

you'd read through the files

before making any rash

decisions, Mr. Donavan.

There is a substantial fee

attached to this proposition.

- Exactly how much

are we talking?
