The Disappointments Room

Synopsis: The architect Dana, her husband David and their son Lucas move to an isolated manor in the countryside seeking a restart of their lives after the death of their baby daughter in a tragic accident. Dana overhears noises in the attic and finds a hidden locked room. Soon she finds the keys and is haunted by the evil spirit of an old man. She researches and learns that old rural houses had disappointments rooms where disabled children were locked to avoid embarrassment to the traditional families. Further, the spirits of the original owner of the house, Judge Blacker, and his daughter are still trapped in the house. However, only Dana is capable to see and contact them and David believes she is delusional. When Judge Blacker threatens the life of Lucas, Dana tries to protect him but she is not sure of what is reality or daydream.

(MUSIC PLAYS IN CAR)

If you want

to know who we are

We are gentlemen of Japan

On many a vase and jar

On many a screen and fan

We figure in lively paint Our

attitude's queer and quaint

You're wrong if

you think it ain't

(CHUCKLES)

DAVID:
Hey, come on.

Embrace living

in the country.

Driving on the open road,

singing Gilbert and Sullivan.

What's more

American than that?

First of all,

Gilbert and Sullivan

were English.

I knew that.

You knew that.

Want me to put on

something else?

Before the mighty troops

The troops of Titipu!

No. Not on your life.

Before the mighty troops

The troops of Titipu!

(RAIN PATTERING)

DAVID:
Isn't this cool?

We're actually using four-wheel drive.

Bet we're the only one of our

friends that can say that.

David, I'm wondering how the

trucks made it back here.

I'm sure they did.

Yeah, I gave them

directions.

But I also said we'd

be there to supervise.

I didn't know we were gonna be

stopping for strawberries...

I wanted to stop.

Peas...

I've never done the whole

roadside stand bit.

Spinach...

Thought it was important for Lucas.

And asparagus.

He should know

where food comes from.

David, food comes

from farms, not stands.

They both have farmers.

I think I see a light.

Where are we?

Hey, we're home, peanut.

LUCAS:
It's really dark.

Where are all

the apartment buildings?

They don't have apartments

in the country, baby.

Babe? Dana.

It's a good move.

Believe me?

Yeah, I believe you.

New beginning.

New beginning.

(KISSES)

Ugh.

DAVID:
It doesn't get better than this, babe.

(LUCAS LAUGHING)

All right.

(LUCAS GROANS)

LUCAS:
Oh.

Shit.

DAVID:
Oh, my God,

you kidding me?

Thought they were supposed to put

everything inside the right rooms.

DANA:
Well,

obviously they didn't.

(BOTH GASP)

Hey, peanut, last one to find the

bathroom has to go wee in the woods!

I'm on your heels, I'm on your heels.

Here I come, here I come.

Please be careful!

(LUCAS LAUGHING)

DAVID:
Here he goes!

Here he goes!

(THUNDER RUMBLING)

DAVID:
Hey.

Hey.

Who puts mirrors

like this here?

Oh. Some guy

who's got a hot wife

and wants as many

of her as possible.

LUCAS:
Daddy!

Can't find my toys!

Hey.

Hey.

This kitchen

has potential, huh?

Yes.

Is there any coffee going?

Oh, if you want coffee, you're gonna

have to find the coffeemaker first.

Found her.

F*ck you.

Is that a threat?

Or a promise?

Uh, could be

a promising threat.

Or a threatening promise.

Where's the peanut?

He's upstairs,

waiting for his waffles.

Oh. And we have a leak

in the breakfast room.

LUCAS:
I don't know.

I don't know.

We have to wait and see.

No, she's a nice mommy.

The nicest mommy

in the world.

DANA:
Lucas,

who are you talking to?

Baby, I asked you

a question.

Who were you

talking to just now?

Lucas, turn around.

Oh, no! Lucas!

Oh, where did you

even find that thing?

He lives here.

This is his home.

Ugh. Well, I'm sure he'll be even

happier when we take him outside.

He said he'll protect me!

Baby, I'm sure he did.

(CAT MEOWS)

We've talked about this before, okay?

No pets.

Please, Mommy?

DAVID:
Hey,

where'd that come from?

Hey, hey, hey.

Let me have a go

at that.

(GROANS)

(CAT PURRS AND MEOWS)

Hey, you stink,

little guy.

Guess what? I just saw a mouse

downstairs and it was huge!

And he had his nose
