Terza Madre, La


Cemetery of Viterbo

- Are you OK?

- Give your hand!

Oscar De La Valle

Cut the chains.

Bury it on the other side of the cemetery.

Later tonight.

And the urn?

- Put it on the car.

- Smile, Monsignore.

Dear Michael, we have done a

discovery in the cemetery that worries me.

I send you this urn to

examine the content.

Knowing esoteric and paranormal sciencies,

I think you'll be able

to confirm or deny my fears.

Rome, Museum of Ancient Art

Excume me, Sara, have you seen Michael?

No, since a couple hours ago.

He took Paul to the doctor.

Oh yes, that's why he doesn't

answer the cell phone.

Do you want to see a thing?


Come with me. Come on!

What is it?

Now you'll see.

- I have never seen anything like this.

- Really?

Don't make me curious.

What is it?

Well, it's an urn.

- An urn?

- Yes.

- Where does it come from?

- From Viterbo.

Monsignore Brusca sends it.

It was found in a box buried in 1815.

Isn't it nice?

- I have never seen anything like this.

- Neither myself.

- It's for Michael.

What does it say?

Do we open it without him?

I don't think he minds.

Let's see what's inside and after

we put the letter back.

- OK.

- Agreed.

Let' open here.

- Shall I help you?

- No, I can do it.

What harm!

You cut,

Let me see it.

- It a small cut.

- An accident.

Be cool.

- Let's open it

- Yes.

It's beautiful.

Grab the dagger with care..

- It's from the medieval age.

- Yeah, thirteenth century.

- Three statues, they're creepy.

- Yes.

Let's see what's this.

They seem like demons.

Look the inscription.

There's one more thing here.

It' a tunic, like talisman.

Do you understand what's written?

Not much well.

They're ancient symbols.

Sara, do me a favor, go and

bring me the Aramaic dictionary.

- I'll take a look meanwhile.

- OK.


Help, help!

Let's see, you have seen some people

But they were deformed.

I didn' see well.

- It was strange the way the moved.

- Why strange?

It was like... they were devouring her,

all full of blood.

Wait, try to describe it.

I saw it for a few seconds.

Not all people were deformed?

Yeah, there was a monkey.

A monkey?

It followed me.

What exactly do you do at the Institute, Sara?

I specialize in restoring archaeology.

Have you already catalogued the

things found in the box?

No, I have not yet been able to examine them.

That is all I kno, I wish

to go home, please.

- Sarah, how are you?

- Oh, Michael!

I am Michael Pierce,

Director of the Museum.

Enzo Marchi, I lead the investigation.

- I'll take her home.

- Sure, no problem.

I cant' believe it.

She's nuts.

- Will you be investigator or not?

- Sure.

Can I go too? I do not want to be

alone tonight.

Of course you can.

It's freezing outside.

Do I light the fire?

Yes, I'll take a look to Paul.

He's in bed and quiet. He's sleeping.

It happened to me one thing

really strange this afternoon.

It's embarrasing for me

to tell you.

What is it?

Swear you won't say I'm crazy.

I swear it.

There was something inside there. I was not sure

to leave alive. Believe me.

- It doesn't matter.

- Come on. Tell me.

I felt a voice inside me.

In my head. And suddenly, BAM!,

the doors were opened alone.

And they were deadlocked.

It was a woman's voice that I could remember.

Hey, tiger, what are you doing awake?

- Hi, Paul

- Hi, Sarah

- Do you want a hot chocolate?

- Yeah.

- Can I read a book?

- All right.

Get the book and take it to your bed.

Which one do you want? This one?

I'll bring you the chocolate in a minute.

I do not understand why.

Why was Giselle killed?
