Scream of the Banshee

Synopsis: In 1188 A.D., in Limerick, Ireland, Templar Knights chase a creature through the woods and trap her head in a box. In the present day Professor Isla Whelan and her two assistants are researching and labeling historical artifacts in the basement of the university where she works and they find an Irish glove and map with the name Duncan. Isla's estranged daughter Shayla Whelan finds a hidden space behind a wall with a box with the severed head, but they believe that it belongs to deformed person or an animal. Out of the blue, the head screams and they all bleed through the ears. They learn soon that the head is from a Banshee and in accordance with the mythology they are doomed to die. Their only hope is to find the lunatic and discredited Professor Broderick Duncan, whose expertise is in the feminine spirit in Irish mythology.

Marble vase.

Ming Dynasty.


Condition, fair.

Normal wear and tear.

Restoration, complete.

Fall semester starts

in two weeks.

Think you'll be done in time,

Professor Whelan?

We're close.

We're very close.

Let me

give you a hand.

Oh, no. I'm fine.

I thought it'd be a lot

faster to box and store away

all that old stuff.

You know history.

It always needs

a lot of polishing.

Good night.

You have a good night.

Number B47305.

Indian Head coin circa 1915.

Condition, good.

I just found

Mesozoic era fossils

of an Apatosaurus

next to a series of

thesis papers on Methuselah

and we are one step

closer to completion.

Hey, guys.

And two major steps back.

Do they realize how far

behind we actually are?

I haven't told them yet.

Well, then let's

show the Dean this.

Fossilized rat circa 1954.

Very fine year for rats.


rusty gauntlet.

Gauntlet trumps rat.


Actually Irish.

You can tell from the design.

I'm thinking 12th century.

Yeah. Can I? Just...

Please. Thank you.

This came with it, too.


Great. Section three.

Section three?

Do we even have a section three?


Yeah. Remember it had

that musty old grandma smell.

Maybe we missed something.

Maybe we didn't.

Look, I told my parents

I'd come home

and visit next week.

Am I the only one

that hasn't made plans

once we're finished?

We finish

when we finish.

You're gonna wear that

thing all day, aren't you?

Just come on over here.

Jeez. How do you get used to being

down here in the dark all day?

How come you're late?


Hi, Ms. Whelan.

Hello, Kurtis.

You should probably go.

See you tonight.

I'll pick you up later, okay?


So, what's the damage?

You should go with Otto.

What's section three?

It's a lovely place.

Nice decor.

Wonderful aroma.

Right this way.

Always lift with

the knees.

Lift about 10

of these a day

and you will be

well on your way

to the physique

you see before you.


Find this.

Let's see.

A red square?

Could be anything.

Could be a fully solved Rubik's

Cube with the red side facing up.

Could be a single tile

from a checkerboard.

Could be a metaphor for communism

or it could symbolize guilt.

I'll keep an open mind.


The square

is another room.

Look out!


I'm okay.

Wet and a little icky,

but I'm good.

What the hell happened?

She found a false wall.

It's not like

I used a sledgehammer.

It was already

falling apart.

How am I gonna explain

this to the school?

There's something

back there.

I thought that's...

You're welcome.


That went well.

I need more light.


What? It's for protection.

Well, I think we've found

what we're looking for.

You know what this means?


We're dining in tonight.

Burgers or Chinese?

There's a similarity

in craftsmanship.

It's the emblem for

the Irish Templar Knights.


What do you think

is in it?

Another box?

There's some condensation.

It's vibrating.

I've never heard

anything like it.

Sounds like it's...

Sounds like it's breathing.

That's not funny.

Listen to it.

What the hell is that?

I'm not sure.

Could be bugs.

Let's put a moratorium

on the bug talk.

Done with bugs, rodents,

cardboard boxes

and any Chinese mystery meat

that attempts to impersonate

sweet and sour.

fair. Needs

further restoration.

We're attempting to

open a metallic Irish box.

Twelfth century.

Possibly a relic

of the Templar Knights.

There's a strange vibration
