Looks like you're

a little out of practice, Doc.

At least you did that for me.

Did you do that for me?

So what's he do

with the bodies, huh?

He save 'em?

He save 'em?

So he can go play

with 'em a little bit, huh?

You gonna play

with them in private?


Guess what, Mel.

You're next and I get to watch.

I wanna go outside! Please!

You volunteered, Melvin.


You said you would cooperate.

That's a good boy now.

Be still.

This is gonna make you

better, Melvin.

Oh, you hear that, Mel?

The doc's calling you crazy.

He's so depressed,

he wants to die.

I told him there was hope.

Why won't you let me

help you out, Doc, huh?


I could put that ice pick

into Melvin's skull like butter.

Wouldn't that be a sight?

You are helping me, Levius.

That's good.

You see?

You see how you're helping me?

That's good.

Well done, Levius.

No, no.

No, no. No.


Little Man.

Little Man, please.

Christ. Kevin, get rid of it.

Little Man.

Come on, come on.

Levius... Levius, please don't

let nobody hurt Little Man.

Please don't let nobody

hurt Little Man.

Quiet, now.

Shh, shh, shh.


Hey, Doc,

you're doing it wrong.

No. No!

You're not doing it right.

No! No!

He's not feeling any pain!

He's good.

Clean it up and bandage him.

How am I supposed

to feel their pain

if they don't even feel it?

You should have

let me help you, Doc.

You are helping me, Levius.

You are.

You'll help me

by putting down the drill.

That's right.

See how easy that is?

You're a good doctor.

Well done, Levius.

Well done.

Too late, Doc.

You feel it, Melvin?



I got a present for you.


Open the door!

Open the door!

Let me out!


Let me out of here!


In that room, he swore

that he'd find a way back.


They say he's still there

walking those long, dusty halls.

Up and down.

Back and forth.

Looking, waiting,

for anyone who dares

to go in there

so he can take his revenge.

Oh, and by the way,

he hates med students.


That's a good one, man.

You probably want

to put that out, though.

You're gonna get us all

thrown out of here

and then that

little ghost of yours

isn't gonna have

anyone to haunt.

I'm sure he'd go after Gabby.

She's hot.

Ugh. Shut up, Dylan.

You just made that up

to freak me out.

Maybe I did.

Maybe I didn't.

Here you go, dude.

Um, no, thanks.

I don't drink.

With a name like Kolt,

you don't even drink.

You're the perfect roommate,

you know that?

- I try.

- Oh, my God.

Hey, chill, Gabby, girl.

Women like manly men.

You know,

I don't think I have ever seen

molded underwear before.

Have you, Kolt?

That's an ink stain.

And how can you be so sure

they're mine anyway?

They're Kolt's.


So why are you so abusive?

You always push me

and kick my crap.


it's on the floor.

That's how I like it.

Mom, this is the part

where you guys drive off.


I know when to take my meds.

Mom, Dr. Thomas said

I'll be okay and I will be.


All right, I gotta go.

Okay, I love you.


You guys are gonna stay here

sall night, aren't you?

Will you leave

my stuff alone, woman?

You need some help.

Or I tell you how that crazy

ghost really murders people

with a hand drill and knives

and surgery scalpels and sh*t.

Blood smeared everywhere.

Uh, hi.

Oh, I'm sorry.


We were just telling

silly ghost stories.

This you?


Hey, we're roomies.

I'm Gabby.


Come in.

Come in.


I'm not kidding.

Now that they're offering

a psych major here,

all the crazies are showing up.

I love that you brought


I never leave home without him.

He's so adorable.

Won't you get in trouble

for having him here?

Are you joking?

Her parents donated heavily this year.

Which means the campus is mine.

And all the hot professors.

And sexy interns.

You guys are bad.


He likes you.

Good omen.

I know.

Look at that.


The f***?



You mean weird.

No, I mean mysterious.

In a good way?


You're weird.

I try.

I can't talk right now, Mom.

Of course I have his number.


All right, I gotta go.

I love you.


First time away from home?

It's harder on them

than on us, you know?

Especially with nice girls.

What makes you think I'm nice?

Uh, here.

Let me help you.

Oh, no, that's okay.

Thanks. I got it.

You know,

when the world fills

with dark shadows,

just turn on the light.

My mom told me that.


So, look.

There's this party tonight

and I know my friends

would love you

and I think you

would like them.

So, you want to come with?

Uh, I don't know.

I kind of need to finish up...

Sit here alone and do nothing?

Yeah, no.

It's supposed to be fun.

Fun day!

Come on, I mean, it's your only

chance to party before classes start.

Never really been

to a party before.



never, ever?

Never, ever.

Well, you are just gonna

have the time of your life.




You mean, now?

Yeah. Yeah.


Come on.


Dylan's kind of cute.

What do you think?

How long have you known him?

Since orientation.

Are you making fun of me?


Because I can always tell

when people are mocking me.

It's just, like,

a talent I have.

Emma, ghosts

really freak me out.


- I'm homeless, though.
