The Apparition: The Experiment of the Apparition

Director(s): Josh Oreck


Okay. Humidity levels are good.

Still need thermal and infrared, though.

Where are those guys?

Cut it out.

Day one of our experiment into the limit

of anomalistic psychology.

We're attempting our own high-tech

version of the Charles Experiment.

Unlike the scientific sance

from the 1970s...

...our goal is to manifest the spirit

into our world.

- Where'd you get that?

- I made it up in Engineering.

I thought a 3D representation of Charles

would help us focus our focus.

If we pull this off,

we'll prove that ghosts, entities...

...and the supernatural do exist...

...with mass iteration of channeled,

intentional belief.

You think EEG amps and

headbands will make a difference?


Instead of just you, me, and Lydia,

it'll be like there's 500 of us.

Stop talking, Greg. Concentrate.

- Whoa.

- Give me a break. You kicked the table.

I did not, I swear.

- Did you get that?

- Yeah, he got it. Now shut up.


Holy shit!

- Oh, my God.

- Oh, shit.

Lydia! Lydia! Come on!


- What is that?

- Where's the flashlight?

What the hell is that? Aah! Patrick!

- Lydia!

- Lydia?

- Aah!

- Lydia!


Now no biting.

Hey, you.

Is your car out of the shop yet?

Of course not.

You think you can rescue me again?

Why not?

Kind of like being the hero. I love you.

Me too.

Let's try to get it right this time.

Uh, no problem.

Hey, stranger.

You hungry?

It depends what you're in the mood for.

The last four days we've covered

China, India, Vietnam...


Okay. You choose.

What exotic land

do you wanna visit tonight?

Can we go to Costco after this?

I wanna get a giant saguaro

for the front yard.

What the hell is a saguaro?

It's a cactus.

You think they even have them?

Mm. I mean, you would think so.

You don't think so?

How are you gonna fit a giant saguaro

in the back of your car?

What was that for?

You get happy and be nice.

- I had a bad day at work, all right?

- So?

Get over it.

Would you quit it?


So I guess I'm buying you a cactus.

I could always work here

if things don't work out.

Oh, stop it.

You can do that techie thing for a while.

It's not gonna kill you.

At least you're not picking up dog poop.

Hey, look.

What do we need that for?

Could come in handy.

We'll use it once,

then it's gonna end up in the garage.

You can't have a problem with this.

It's cute, it's cheap,

super low-maintenance.

Just like you.

Hmm. Look where we are.

Not the camping thing again. I...

Before my dad first took me,

I thought I'd hate it.

I like the outdoors, but sleeping

in a tent on the ground...

Who said anything about sleeping?

When you were a little girl, I bet your

dream was to live in Palmdale, wasn't it?

Of course.

Abandoned neighborhoods,

vacant strip malls...

...empty desert for miles

in every direction.

What girl doesn't dream about that?

- Who was that?

- Work.

- Hi, neighbors.

- Hey.

How's the unpacking going?

Well, we're getting there, sort of.

Hey, Pepper. Come on, girl. Pepper.

Watch out for this one.

She likes to roam.

How are you, Miss Maggie?


- This is my boyfriend, Ben.

- Good to meet you, Ben.

- Hi.

- Hello.

- See you guys soon?

- Yeah, see you soon.

All right, come on.

When did you find time to start

the welcoming committee?

Well, it wasn't that hard,

considering they're our only neighbors.

Hey, Mom.

Um, I'm watching your video right now.

- Uh-huh.

- Damn it! Where is it?

That was Ben. He can't find something.

Yes, Mom, were excellent tenants.

We're taking good care

of your investment home.

Your parents should be happy
