Day one in the Browning house.

It's moving in day

Been going at it since

pretty early this morning.

Uh, Stella should be home

in a couple of hours,

and hopefully everything should

pretty much be in its place.

No activity thus far.

All right, house...

show me what you got.

[ music sting ]

[ orchestral Music ]

Hey, lady.


How was your day?

It was good, it was very good.


You got a lot done.

Not too bad, right?

Uh-uh. ready for your

first night in a haunted house?

As ready as I'll ever be.

Oh, hold on one second,

I gotta show you something.


Check those out.

What are they?

Those are pictures of the

house after the crime scene

was cleaned up and there's even

one of the family in there.

So this is them?


It's horrible to think

they all died in here.

Who's bedroom was this?

That was the little boy's room.

I'd like you to play close

attention to that picture

cause I would really love it

if you could decorate that room

to look just like the picture

while I finish

the office tonight.


Why would I do that?

Well, supposedly, if you

recreate the house

to look like it did when

they lived here,

it can actually make

the spirits more active.

Okay, that's a little creepy.

You ready to go to work?


Can't we just enjoy our first

night together?

The box is already

in the room.

But, when it's empty...

[ laughs ]

Doesn't seem right.

Decorating a room

for a dead kid.


What was the kid's name?

Uh, it was Tom.

Sorry about what

happened to you, Tom.

There's definitely something

off about this place.

it's like the air is

heavy or something.

It has a certain

energy to it, doesn't it?

Yeah... it's kind of exciting.

Isn't it?

Yeah... and a little creepy.

No need to worry,

little lady, I'll protect you.

Oh, well that's reassuring.


You're so mean to me

all the time.

Oh, do you think they would

let us paint the walls

while we're staying here?

Yeah, I think so.


Why? What color

were you thinking?

Well, you know how I like color,

and lots of it,

so I was thinking, how about

a deep blood red.

Blood red.

Yeah, it'll match right?

The ghosts will like it.

Yeah, it'll probably match what

the house used to look like.

There was a lot

of blood on the walls.

You didn't tell me that

something actually happened

in this room.


Great, what?

The guy shot his wife

in this room.

Are you--

Exactly where you're

laying right now.

Shut up.



What's that?

Oh, look, it's brain matter.

Oh, my god.

Night. Thanks.

Oh, come on.

I'm just teasing.


[ music ]

[ door creaking ]

[ movement ]

[ bang ]

Paul...Paul wake up.

Huh? What?

I heard something moving

around out there.

And didn't we shut

the door last night?

Yeah, I think so.

It's open now.

Where are you going?

I'm gonna go take a look.

Who knows, maybe our experiences

will start tonight.


I know I heard something.

It was probably just the

sounds of the house settling.

We're not used to them yet.

I swear it sounded like

someone moving around out there.

I looked everywhere.

There was nothing there.

Come here.




Ooh, what's the matter?

Haunted house got you

a little spooked?

No, but you sneaking up on me

and yelling "boo"

in my ear does.

Hey, where's Stella?

She break up with you already?

She's at work.

What are these?

Oh, those are from, uh, after

the crime scene was cleaned up.

No shit?

No, why do you have

these exactly?

I'm putting together the house

to look like it did
