(INDISTINCT)

[LIAM] I wonder if she'll come

back again.

[LIAM] I wonder if she comes

again.

[LIAM] I wonder if she'll

come back again.

[LIAM]

I wonder if she comes again.

[LIAM] I wonder if she'll come

back again.

[LIAM] I wonder if she comes

again. I wonder...

(CONTINUES INDISTINCT)

I wonder if she comes tonight.

I wonder what games we'll play.

If she comes again tonight,

I wonder what games we'll play.

(FLOOR CREAKING)

(DEMON BREATHING)

Okay, that sounds fun.

Her name's Alice. She's six.

(HUMS)

[LIAM]

Ready or not, here I come.

[YOUNG ALICE]

Liam?

Where are you?

Liam, you're sleep walking

again.

(GIGGLES)

There you are, next to my

sister.

This isn't funny!

I'm gonna tell Mom!

(DEMON BREATHING)

Liam, you're scaring me.

Get away from me!

Liam, stop it!

(SCREAMS)

Alice! Help me! Alice!

ALICE (ON TAPE):

So why don't you tell me...

a little bit about your

nightmare?

MALE PATIENT (ON TAPE):

I first saw it as a child...

standing in the shadows at the

end of my bed.

It's hard to describe

what it looks like.

This figure in the darkness.

It didn't have a face.

FEMALE PATIENT (ON TAPE):

I wake up. I can't move.

Like I'm paralyzed.

MALE #2 (ON TAPE): The room gets

darker and darker.

That's when I know it's coming.

FEMALE #2 (ON TAPE):

It happens to me every night.

I don't wanna sleep any more.

MALE #3 (ON TAPE): And there's this pressure on my

chest...

this huge force.

It's like something's holding

you down.

I feel terrified.

FEMALE #3:

I knew it was there.

I could feel it in the darkness

just... watching me.

MAN #4:

I feel trapped.

I wasn't able to move any part

of my body.

I could only move my eyes

back and forth.

FEMALE #4:

And then I saw this figure...

coming towards me and I...

I couldn't make it out,

because it was black.

MAN #5:
You'd be surprised how

many people are affected.

I think some people don't even

like to talk about it.

FEMALE #5:

Every fiber of your body...

is telling you it's something

evil.

MALE #6:
It looks like this old

woman, a haggard old woman...

with these cold, dark eyes.

It's not like a nightmare,

it's... it's something else.

FEMALE #6:
It had such power.

I felt completely helpless.

You don't know what it's like.

It's like a curse.

MALE #7:
You wanna run,

you wanna scream...

but it won't let you.

The thing was well

over six foot.

FEMALE #7:

I think it was seven feet tall.

MALE #8:
It was like this

moving darkness.

FEMALE #8:
It was the greatest terror

I've ever experienced.

MALE #9:

The shadow man is violent.

FEMALE #9:

The hag, she takes hold of me...

and I think I'm gonna die.

MALE #10:
Well, you know

it's coming back.

It is always coming back

for you.

BOY'S VOICE (V.O.):

Alice!

(DOOR OPENS)

[NIAMH]

Were your dreams sweet, Mummy?

Not as sweet as you.

Good morning.

Good morning.

One, two, three.

Always, always, always.

(LAUGHING)

(EERIE MUSIC PLAYING)

[NIAMH] Dream dream dream

Dream dream dream

(HUMS)

Has Henry had his breakfast yet?

He had six peanuts!

Six.

Oh, six.

You ready for your test?

Yeah.

Ah, excuse me.

Yes!

Who's this?

Erm, it's you. You're flying.

Oh, super mom!

It's very nice.

Where am I flying to?

I don't know. Nowhere, I guess.

Do you like it?

I love it.

One, two, three.

Oh, my gosh, every time.

Loser!

You can't kiss the artist!

Yes, I can!

Okay, artist, time to go!

MICHELLE (ON TAPE):

And I kept trying to breathe...

and I couldn't breathe...

and I was telling myself, like,

Michelle, wake-up.

Wake-up. Breathe. Get out

of bed. Move.

Like, do something, you're
