- Man:

- (Country music playing)

- Joe?

- What?

Are you all right?

Yeah, I think I just

might have had too much coffee.

I'll be back.

(Man singing)

- (Water runs)

- (Crying)

Damn it.

You're where?

All right,

then I will see you soon.

What's going on?

They're here.

(Mug clatters)

- Waitress:
Here you go.

- Thanks.

(Liquid sloshes)

- Do you need more coffee?

- No, I'm good.

Are you okay?

Are you worried

about that test?


Doesn't Woodrow have

a test tomorrow?

Oh. Yeah.

I just- I'm fine.

See, I'm smiling.

- Girl:

- Hey, there's our fearless leader.

- Scottie.

- What'd we miss?

- Did you bring it?

- Yeah yeah, yes.

Should be good too-

H.D., zoom,

whatever, L.E.D.

Yeah, and if my dad finds

out you took it, you're dead.

We're all going

to die tonight anyway.

Well, that's encouraging.

Joe, what about you?

You ready to die tonight?

I could only be so lucky

to die in such company.

Mm, yeah right.

Um, how exactly did

we get talked into this?

I have no idea.

Come on.

How often are women

allowed to partake

in scientific discovery?

Screw yourself, okay?

I could think of about

- a hundred better things to be

doing tonight. - Hostile.

Hey, I thought

we agreed to this, right?

We're gonna sell the footage

to ghost shows.

Uh, actually I think that her

and I agreed to a double date.

Now I know that you two think

that a night of "Mario Kart"

is romantic, but you've really

outdone yourselves this time.

Speaking of romance,

did you-


What is this?

This is all you brought?

Do you need more?

This is three teaspoons.

Of course we need more.

Wait, what do we need more for?

We just need more.

Well, is Grimm's

still open?


Let's do it.

All right.

I mean, we need more powder.

- Actually just me and you do.

- Yeah.


Hey, Judy.

- Evening, Chief.

- Judy.

Well, I smelled the popcorn

popping, and there it is.

- So-

- Let me get you a bag.

Well, thank you.

Thank you.

You aren't going to be using Motorola

for butter this year, are you?



I think you'd better

come in and see this.

What have we got?

I put it on your desk.

A fax just came in.

(Distant police radio)

Why would they

send it to you?

Did you tell anybody

about this?

Uh, call the mayor.


Oh, this thing works great.

What is this?

I don't know. Let me check that-

- Ooh yeah.

- Ugh.

I feel dirty.

All right, baby powder,

where are you?


Um, Neosporin,


Oh, you think Rachael

will wear these?

- Yes.

- (Laughing)

You seem a little more

distraught than usual tonight.

Need to bum one?

No, I'm good.


I just- I just started

getting college stuff.

Yeah, me too.

Scary stuff.

(Distant train whistling)

How are you

and Corey doing?


Oh, here they come.

You girls miss us?

Did you find

everything you need?

Yeah, sorry,

we had a little trouble.

Thank you.

And here we go.

That's a big file.

Yeah, I always thought I wouldn't

have to open this one again.

Shay Gunther.

(Police radio chatter)

I'm gonna be up all night.

These carnival workers

are taking

their sweet-ass time.

Any progress?

Didn't you hear?

We're projecting at least

6,000 people this weekend-

At least 6,000.

Is something wrong?

Yeah, Shay Gunther escaped.

Just got this fax.

I thought he was dead.

Yeah, well, his transport bus

careened off the road.

The guards are dead.

Gunther escaped.

Where was the bus?



What do you think?

I don't know.

Do you think

he could come back here?

Well, he may

be here already.

What about

the festival tomorrow?

We can't have

a panic on our hands.

Yeah, well, we may have

something worth panicking about.

We need to keep

this man in the past.

(Radio chatter continues)

This Shay Gunther?


that's him.

I remember.

All those kids,


Yeah, six-

Five boys and a girl.

Okay, so this is

our trip to Munger Road.

Say hi to the girls

in the back.

All right,

clearly they are jazzed.

Corey, you want to introduce

yourself to our audience at home?

- Corey La-

- Laasshole!

Rachael, this is for TV.

Yeah, take two-

Corey Lafayve.


Got you, bud.

Um, you want to say hi

back there, Joe?

- Okay.

- Okay, if anybody finds this tape,

I would just like

it to be known on record

that we are being held here

against our will.

Yeah, how did you get out

of those handcuffs, by the way?

- (All laugh)

- Rachael:

- Don't tell them that.

- Scott:
Okay, so where are we going?


We are, right now,

on a road that's been

haunted for years.

Everybody has a

story about Munger Road.

Yeah? Do you

know which one's true?


What is it?

- The train tracks.

- Scott:

That's the one I know.

Apparently a bus full of kids

- was hit by a train and they

haunt the tracks. - Rachael: What?

You don't believe

it? Look it up on your phone.

- Okay.

- Corey:
Do it.

That's not

what I heard.

I heard that a little girl

was murdered out here-

Something about, like,

a farm by the train tracks.

Farm shmarm;

Train tracks, whatever.

- It's haunted. - No no, I think that

farm story is bullshit,

because there's no farm out

here. There's nothing out here.

Yeah, I've never

seen a farm out here.

- I'm sure it's bullshit.

- Scott:
Whoa whoa, wait a second.
