Oh, Jesus!

I need immediate back up

at 166 briar road.

I have an active crime scene.

Possible 187, suspect present.

I repeat, suspect present!

Hello? Is anyone down there?!

This is the sheriff's


Stay where you are,

you understand me!

You leave me no choice

but to shoot!!

Whoever is in there,

we can work this out!!!

Please, please, we need to get

outta here!!!!

You're okay!

No, no, you don't understand!

We have to go now!!!


Mother, father, two kids, gone

without a goddamn trace.

Did you get anything out of her?

No, she's in pretty bad shape.

I went to high school with her.

Said she's the housekeeper here,

helped out with

the kid sometimes.

All the blood on that girl

in there, it's not hers.

Not hers?

Then' who's is it?

I don't know,

that's your job right.

Jesus, what the hell happened

in there?

I don't know, boss,

he was already hanging there

when I went in.

Hey, get the hell outta here!!

Seal the place off!

Nobody gets in here

without my say so!

Until we find out what

happened to this family.

Power's been turned on.

Uh, forgive me for asking,

but are you sure that you want

to be doing this?

The place is uh...

It's an awful mess.

I appreciate your concern,

Mr. Walker,

but we'll be just fine.

We'll be just fine.

Won't we, Adrian?

Come on.

Now don't worry,

in a couple days

it'll be just like home.


No wandering off.

We've got a busy day.


I never realized how far

you live from the city.

I spent nearly 30 minutes just

trying to find the driveway!

I am so, so sorry.

It's quite alright, we just

arrived ourselves.

Well, well, well.


Excuse me.

Adrian, I thought

we had a deal.

No wandering off.

Cookie? You ok in there?

Just a dream.

All good.

That was a heck of

a dream, huh?

Can't remember the last time

you had a nightmare.

They didn't call?


No, not yet, but Jim told me

the mill just got a big order

and they should be starting

up my shift again real soon.

It's been two months.

Yeah, I know, but we've

been able to spend

a lot of time together, right?


Morning, Angela.

Good morning, Ruby.

Do you have a minute?


Is everything ok?

Yes, yes.

I um...

I know times are tough with your

father not working and all...

If you're interested,

there's a part-time job

helping care for a nine

year old boy.

I'm not sure what

his condition is

but it sounds like the mother

needs an extra set of hands.

But this is...

I know.

It's not like these jobs

come along all the time,

especially around here,

and the money is good.

I should get back.

You don't need me today?

Oh, we always need you, hun,

but you should go.

At least pay her a visit,

see for yourself.


Let me know how it goes.

Wish me luck.

Good one, man.

Hey, Angie, where are

you going?

We have stuff to do,


Don't you be getting

all hot and bothered,

I'm not going far.

I don't understand why you

hang out with those creeps.

I mean, you know what Luther

is into, right?

He dabbles, nothing serious.

That's not what I hear.

Hey pandy, why don't you bring

your little friend back here,

we'll have ourselves

some real fun.

In your dreams.

I thought you couldn't

hang today

because you were at the daycare.

I was.

Mrs. Harris, one of

the teachers there,

she got me a job interview.

Around here?

With who?


Is it something secret

or something?

No, it's um...

It's a babysitting job

at the briar house.

Yeah, right.

I'm on my way there now.

No one in their right mind

would move into this place.

Not after what happened.

That was a long time ago,

and besides, no one knows

what really happened.

The family just vanished.


TV still on, car left out back,

food on the table.

Whatever happened,

it wasn't good.

I don't want you to go.

They're paying good money

and you know my dad

hasn't been working.

Angela, please.

At least let me go with you.

Tell me I didn't

just see that.

Don't touch me again,

you hear?

I told you, I don't go

that way.

You suck.

You're really messed up,

you know that?

That was uh...

Pretty hot, pandy.

Yeah, real hot.

Shut up, the both of you!

What's going on here, pandy?

The girl's got issues,

what do you want me to say?

You exchanging love notes?

It's an address.

She's got a job interview.

Not at the briar house,

she don't.

She said someone

just moved in.

Bullshit, we were just

out there,

no one's living in that place-

shut it, Rodney.

Who did she say she was

meeting out there?

Why the sudden interest?

Who did she say

she was meeting?

You're hurting me!

Who, pandy?

I don't know, alright?!

It's some babysitting gig!

Everyone in the truck.

We're gonna go see

for ourselves.

I'm so sorry.

Can I help you?

I... I um...

Everything ok out here?



Mrs. Harris at...

At the daycare, she said you

might be looking for some help.

Oh, you must be Angela.

Oh, thank you so much

for coming out here.

How are you doing on those

basement windows, Mr. Walker?

They've been kicked in

pretty good, probably kids.

They'll need replacing.

You want me to go ahead

and seal them up

with some plywood for now?

Whatever you think is best.


He's kind of a creepy guy,

but he's the only handyman i

could get to come out here.

Creepy might be

an understatement.

Come on, let me introduce

you to Adrian.
