Well, the house is a dump.

What an amazing view.


We'll, we won't need that.

No, we're not on the grid.

There's a generator.






Oh, you poor, things.

There you go.

They've left plenty of fuel

for the generator.


You're right, Scott,

this place is incredible.


I... I don't feel anything.






You're going to have to

rig up some sort of kill switch

for the generator.


I'm picking up

its magnetic field.

- Yeah, alright.

Just let me finish this first.

Yeah, okay.

- It's not like

you couldn't do it.

Good move on taking

the table, Scott

you know how I love to eat

standing up.

What are you

complaining about?

These flight cases make

a perfectly good dining table.

-Spot the bachelor.

- Yeah, well, at least now

we have a proper control center.

I'm sick and tired of working

hunched up over a coffee table.

-Hey, you not eating those?

-Ah, uh, no.


-So it was around dinner time

that they took off, right?

-Yeah. Left all their stuff.

Didn't even pack anything

for the baby.

-Well of course they didn't.

They probably figured it would

make their claim more credible.


Look, Holly, in my experience

most of these situations

turn out to be benign.

It's either noisy pipes,

house subsidence

forgetting to take medication.

-Oh, yeah.

- Yeah, well, some people

like to keep an open mind.

-Oh, I have an open mind.

As long as it's scientific data

we're collecting.

- Hey, Holly, wanna come

see something really cool?

-Yeah, alright.

- Our sensors captured this

at our last investigation.

-Alright, Scott.

How's your science

explain that one?

-I don't know.

- Under the bridge

around the lake

between the rocks,

through the woods..

Up... Spook hill.


Down spook hill,

through the woods

between the rocks,

around the lake

under the bridge,

over the wall, up the tree..

-Okay, so have fun..

I guess?

- Okay.

-Don't forget to eat and, um..

Sleep, okay? Goodnight.

- Okay, goodnight

to you too, darling.

Give them a kiss for me.

I'll ring you

in the morning, okay?

- Okay, bye.

- Bye-bye.

Morning, Holly.

- Hm.

- You wanna come here

and have a look at this?

Something tripped our

motion camera in the hallway

at 3 A.M. this morning.

What do you think?

Uh, I don't know.



Uh, just here.

Yeah, there's a small gap.

I can feel the air on my face.

- Nothing. There's nothing.

- It's right there.

- The camera wouldn't trace a

breeze or a temperature change.

It won't even react

unless something passes

through all three beams

on the sensor.

- Just here.

Right in front of you.

I've got it, I've got it.

Keep your pants on.

- Are you recording?

- Yeah, recording now.

ID, okay, so this is, uh..

The front bedroom.

I'm Liam Andrews

here with... Holly Matthews

and Scott Cameron.

Okay, Holly.

- Is there anybody else

here with us?

If there's anybody else

here with us

can you give us a sign?

I'm not getting anything

from this room.

Should we have a look

at another one?

-Yeah, sure.

- Is there anyone else

here with us?

If there is anyone else here..

You don't have to fear us.

We just wanna understand you.

- It doesn't matter.

Early days.

- Liam.

- Yeah?

-What's the formula

for the particle displacement

in a standing wave?

- Uh... It's equal to one

over acoustic impedance

depending on the Peri..

I can't remember. Just Google

particle displacement.

-Oh, yes, thank you.

- What are you nerds

talking about?

-Uh, Scott's latest obsession.

It is not an obsession,
