Good evening.

Please join me here

at the table.

Don't mind Joseph.

The poor thing is a mute.

I'm irwin tolwood,

this is my wife maybell.

Pleased to meet you.

My name is Anna. I am madame

Addison's assistant.

What is that for?

The madame documents

all of her sessions.

Joseph there will be taking


And the phonograph will

record sound.

Now why does she do that?

Curious things may happen

here tonight.

Good evening.

Thank you... for seeing us.

I will do my very best

to help you.

Ahh... yes, a skeptic.

I beg your pardon?

I must ask that you put

your full faith in me...

During the session.

Negativity and doubt can easily

taint the connection.

I'll have faith if you

help us find our daughter.

Irwin, please.

Please, take your seats.

Did you bring what I asked for?

Yes... we just didn't

understand why.

I need something that was

personal and dear to her.

It simply helps me

to make contact.

Personal items strengthen

the spiritual bond.

Well, I hope this will suffice.

It's her favorite.

And your personal items?

That will do just fine.

She has her father's eyes.

Why did you ask us to come

here so late tonight?

Three o' clock is the witching

hour, my dear.

The time of night when the


Between the living

and the dead is thinnest.

Are you trying to tell me that

my daughter is already dead?

If we make direct contact

with her...

There is a good chance

she has passed.

How long ago did she vanish?

Three weeks.

Throughout this session...

It is imperative that we

do not break the circle.

If we do indeed make contact

with her...

Only one of us shall speak

at a time.

You must ask questions with

a yes or no for an answer.

One tap for no...

And two taps for yes,



Let us join hands.

Foul spirits be warned.

Thou shall be banished if ye

approach this circle.

We only wish to contact

whom we ask.

You have been warned by all

that is good and pure.

Please open your eyes and place

your fingertips on the table.

Elena tolwood.

Dearest Elena...

We call out to you.

Are you present with us?

Elena, we only wish to ask

you a few questions.

Would you like to join us?

Elena, sweetie...

Don't be afraid!

This is ridiculous.


Elena, was that you, dear?

Elena, it's mommy!

Was that you on the piano?


Good job, Elena!

This is a safe place.

Please join us at this table.

Elena, are you okay?



Elena. Did someone hurt you?


Who hurt my baby?

Elena, did someone kill you?


This is an utter outrage!

Do not break this sacred circle!

Irwin, stop it!

She's a fraud, a complete fraud!

The piano and the table

are rigged!


Madame? Madame?

Oh, my god! Oh, no!

Help me, daddy. It hurts.

I'll kill you!

Irwin! Oh, god!

Your little girl is ours!

You evil b*tch!

Tainted by the devil!

What have we done?

What in god's name--

she warned you not to break

the circle, fool!


Victoria, pick one.

Not happening.

C'mon, pick one.

I said no.


In 1000 feet...

Turn right onto barrow Avenue.

Will you shut up if I pick one?

Guys, please be quiet.

I'm trying to hear the GPS.

Victoria, pick a card.

Good, now place it back

in the deck.

Your card has magically

risen to the top.

Is this your card?


You are approaching

your destination.

You're lying.

No, I'm not.

Yes, you are.

Hey! What the hell! Stop it!

Damn it, guys!

I said knock it off!

Thank you.

Your destination

is on the right.

This is it.

Can we just pick a house


This is beautiful.

It looks like a giant

doll house.
