Spooky Stakeout

Each of the friends is driven by different motivations - whether itâ€ôs for science, romance or monetary gain - but finding the real ghost is their ultimate goal! Full of age-appropriate scares and humor, SPOOKY STAKEOUT is a family adventure in the vein of GOOSEBUMPS and THE HAUNTING HOUR.

Where are you?

Remember the first rule

in ghost-hunting?

Stick together.

[floorboard creaks]

If someone's there...

you should know I'm highly

skilled in arm-to-arm combat.

If you get hurt,

it's - it's not my fault.


Who are you?!



That's me.

Sorry I'm late.

This place was

really hard to find.

I'm the reporter

you've been emailing.

I'm here to write a story on

the spooky ghost-hunting team.

- But you're a girl.

- Uh, yeah, of course I am.

Okay, let's get started.

Wait, where are the others?

- I don't know. We...

- We got split up.

I've tried them on the

walkie-talkies but...

[walkie-talkie crackle]

No signal.

Walls are too thick.

Phones don't work either.

- Looks like it's

just me and you then.

Did I scare you?

- Who, me?

- No chance.

[Spooky music]

- This place is dead creepy.

Do you think it's

really haunted?

- It's too early to tell.

- Of course.

I'm sure you have

to do loads of tests

before you can say if a place

is really haunted or not.

How long have you

being hunting ghosts?

- A few years.

I've always believed in ghosts,

the paranormal,

all that mumbo-jumbo.

So I asked a few of my friends

if they wanted to join

my ghost-hunting team.

- Tell me about them.

- Well, there's Noah.

He likes to think

he's in charge but...

I let him think that.

And there's Clan.

He's, like, the biggest

geek on the planet.

I think he's part computer.

Last but not least, Sarah.

She's dead smart.

And, off the record,

a total know-it-all.


- Okay...

So, how would you

describe yourself?

- I don't really like

to talk about myself

but some people say

I'm the handsome

brains of the operation.

- I can see why.

- Okay, so you have

your team in place.

Now what was your first

spooky stakeout?

The one that got you

hooked on the supernatural.

. Easy.-

Our very first

mission took place

one Halloween night

after school.

- Legend has it that there

was a horrible old nun...

- Who all the students

were scared of.

She only liked when

the students were gone

and the school

was empty and silent.

One cold winter morning,

the students decided to

teach the old nun a lesson,

so they poured water

[sound of water pouring] on the

steps outside the classroom

and waited for it to freeze.

When the nun approached

the classroom,

the students were outside

playing and laughing,

something the nun hated.

She let roar...

- Be quiet!

- and ran down the steps

toward them.

But she slipped on the icy steps

and flew five,

ten feet into the air.

She came crashing down

and broke her neck.

And now, the ghost

of the dead nun

roams these halls

looking for revenge on any

students who misbehave.

- Is that real?

- Noah, that's the stupidest

thing I've ever heard.

Hey, Emma!

It's just something that

sixth years tell first years

to scare them.

- Great.

- Who invited Brian?

- Cian did.

[all together]

- Cian!

- Seriously.

- What?

- No, I didn't.

I might have mentioned

we were going ghost-hunting

but I didn't invite him.

- Ghost-hunting?

There's no such thing as ghosts.

Sarah? Emma?

Do you really believe all this?

- Forget him.

We'll show him when we get

proof the school is haunted

and find the ghost.

Alright, let's just focus.

Itinerary check.


What are you wearing?

- It's a utility belt.

[camera shutter clicks]


- Uh, check.

Voice recorder?

- It's my dad's.

He doesn't know I took it.

- Check.

- Uh, torches?

- Torches are stupid anyway.

- I guess you have something
