How to Save Us

Brian must travel to the deserted island to save his brother from a land now solely inhabited by demonic spirits. In order to survive, he must follow a set of rules: including covering himself with human ashes, to cloak his presence from the malevolent entities haunting the barren landscape. But will this buy enough time for Brian to find his brother, or will they both be stuck in a hellish realm of the dead forever?

So come with me,

we'll all go and see

The Big Rock Candy Mountains

Yes, the Big Rock

Candy Mountains

There's a land

that's fair and bright

Where the handouts

grow on bushes

And you sleep

out every night


Where have you been?

Oh just, just had to work

on the will, what's up?

What's up, our little brother is

Still missing.

Well I mean you left him there.

I'm not making any of this up.

Oh God, why won't

you believe me?

Well, they're

saying it's a virus.

You sure you and Sam

didn't just hallucinate

All this ghost stuff

when you were there?

So, what, did I hallucinate

My broken leg and the

claw marks on my back too?

No come, that's not

what I'm saying, okay,

I'm just saying that

sounds an awful lot

Like Sam's big imagination

going into overdrive here.

Because having an imagination

Is just such a

terrible thing, Dad.

All right come on,

look, after all this sh*t

I've been going

through, with the will,

You really think that I

still regret Dad's death?

The only thing I regret

about our parents dying

Is that I didn't get to

tell Dad to go F himself

Before he died.

Okay now, I will go to

Tasmania and I will bring

Our little brother

home, you understand me?


Just bring him home.


Why isn't the

government talking about it?

We know Tasmania is

quarantined, sure but,

What is being quarantined?

What if it is all

just a cover up?

Or worse, what if we're

dealing with something

The military doesn't

even understand?

Oh come on,

the entire state of Tasmania

Evacuated for what, testing?

People have died.

Nah but,

people have gone missing.

Have you seen any

bodies, I don't know.

Now maybe they found

something, I'm telling you,

Maybe we're dealing with an

enemy here that can't be seen.

You see,

this is exactly the sort of

Conspiracy that brought

these people to doing

Wretched and horrible things.

It's this nonsense

that gets people killed

On a grand scale.

Tell the, it's been,

Like days, and we haven't

heard a thing,.

An entire state is empty.

When is someone gonna

tell us the truth?

And what is the truth?

Aliens, secret testing?

See that's just

it, it could be anything.

There's a lot of people like

you, turning the other way,

And pretend like

nothing is happening,

That nothing is wrong,

May be on a path to extinction

if this is left unchecked.

Extinction, please.

The military says

there's a virus,

And they're containing it.

That is enough for me, I'm

well, my family is well,

I have no interest in digging

up something that could

Cost me or any other fellow

Australians their lives.

I say this is the military's

problem, let the military

Handle it, okay?

Hey Sam, It's Molly.

My friend and I are here,

we're at your cabin.

It doesn't look like

you've been here for weeks.

Oh God where are you?

Look, I'm sorry to

just show up like this,

But I really need

you to come home,

So we can figure everything out.

I understand why you've

run away from all this

And I'm really trying

to support you,

But if the three of

us just finished this,

Then we can all finally

move on with our lives.

Anyway, please call me

back when you get this.

I love you Sam.

Did you get

a hold of Brian today?

Is he gonna meet you out

here if you can't find Sam?


I don't know where he is.

But Brian, he just

doesn't even care.

He used to be the

sweetest guy ever.

Like he would cry if

someone killed a bird.

Oh my God, he has just

become such an a**hole.

I can't even remember

the last time he said,

"I love you."

What the hell is that?
