The Inhabitants (2015) Movie Script

- Honey, you gonna be in there all night?
- I'll be right out.
I Can't believe
There's no television.
Oh, don't be such a grump.
I think it's quaint.
Hey, aren't we
on the top floor?
- Yeah, I think.
- That's what I thought.
It's just that
when I was in the bathroom,
I heard this, like,
weird creaking noise.
It's an old house.
You're right.
So, you want to go
antiquing tomorrow?
No, I want to go to
the witch museum.
The witch museum? Everyone
goes to the witch museum.
I know, but when in Rome...
All right, witch museum it is.
Thank you.
Anything for my baby.
But now we have to go to sleep,
'cause we have to get up early.
- Good night.
- Good night.
Dan, I see you found the place.
Yes, and I did not
get lost this time.
Gretchen, this is my wife, Jessica.
Jessica, this is Gretchen.
- Nice to finally meet you.
- Hi.
This is my aunt rose.
She's the current owner.
Rose, this is Dan
and Jessica coffey.
They're here to see the house.
Hi. Your house is lovely.
You'll have to excuse my aunt.
This is very hard for her... handing
over the business to strangers.
- I'm sure you understand.
- Of course.
The house is over
350 years old.
It's one of the oldest
in all of new england,
dating back to
the early colonists.
It needs some updating,
but that's part of the charm.
Great view.
- It's nice, right?
- Yeah.
We have a main residence
and then three guest rooms,
all upstairs.
- How long has it been a bed-and-breakfast?
- 40 years.
My aunt and Uncle converted
it when they first bought it.
If you don't mind me asking, why
are you guys selling the place?
He died about a year ago, a heart attack.
It was very sudden.
She tried to keep the place
going on her own,
but it was just
too much for her.
Did they not have a
handyman or any other staff?
No, it was just
the two of them.
My Uncle was the fix-it type.
Liked to do things himself.
So, what's gonna happen to her?
Assisted living.
We found a lovely place
just a few Miles from here.
I have to warn you, the
upstairs is a bit of a mess.
So what about all
this furniture here?
What do you guys plan
on doing with it?
It's included. It'd be
too much trouble to move it.
And besides,
it belongs to the house.
So, what do you think?
Can we afford this?
Yes. We'll be... We'll be fine.
- Are you...
- I promise.
Okay. Let's do it.
- Really?
- Yeah,
- if you think we can do this.
- I know we can.
- I love you.
- I love you, too.
This is gonna be great.
Okay. Well, I'll go back to the
office and draw up the paperwork.
Pleasure doing
business with you.
Thank you very much.
- Congratulations.
- Thanks.
I know running
a b & b is crazy,
but it's been your dream since
as long as I've known you.
I know. I just...
Well, I guess
it's our dream now.
I am completely okay with that.
- Okay.
- Next time we drive up here,
it's gonna be our home.
Honey, where does this one go?
Uh, the kitchen.
Kitchen. Okay.
Wylie, come on, boy.
Honey, I got the phone working.
You want a
gold star or something?
Yes, actually, I Would love a gold star.
Thank you.
All right, well, why don't you
order us some food on that thing?
I'm starving.
- How is it?
- Okay.
- Yeah?
- Mm-hmm.
Mm. Mm-hmm.
Did we unpack the glasses?
Hm-mmm. Not yet.
This is gonna have to do,
A toast
to our new home and business.
Look at us.
So classy.
Okay, well, mine's... Do you
want to know my lucky numbers?
- Yes. No. I want to read you my thing.
- What are yours?
"Keep in mind your
most cherished dreams
in the future."
- Oh, that's what We're doing.
- Yes.
And, um, "to catch a cold" is
- huh?
- Exactly.
Hey, honey?
What time do you want to
wake up tomorrow morning?
Mm, early.
Like, 6:00 A.M.
We'll have breakfast in bed.
What do you want,
pancakes or waffles?
I'm so tired.
Yeah? Long day?
Hmm. Mm.
- What?
- What?
I'm just checking out
my gorgeous wife's
incredibly cute ass.
Can we do this tomorrow?
- Don't you know the rules?
- What?
You have to christen your
new house in your new bed,
or it's incredibly bad luck.
- Rain check?
- "Rain check"?
Yeah, I'm tired.
Did you pull that card on me?
Okay, but remind me
to oil the new bed
for the rain check.
- Sweaty dreams, baby.
- "Sw... sweaty dreams"?
You are cruel.
- You love me.
- Yes, I do.
- Hi.
- Hi.
I forgot where I was
this morning.
Don't worry about it. It'll
take some getting used to.
So what's first on the agenda?
Got anything?
All right. Um...
How about that one?
Uh, no.
All right, then.
What about that one?
Oh, yep. That's the kitchen.
That... is the kitchen.
All right.
This one is
a bit of a mystery.
Okay, so I'm all done.
Cool. Can you help me
with some of these boxes?
- Maybe.
- Come on.
Are you down here?
Oh, hey.
What is all this?
Uh, I don't know.
Some kind of storeroom,
I guess.
- Oh, weird. Look at this chair.
- I know.
At least, I think it's a chair.
What is that?
I don't know, but I wouldn't
go touching it if I were you.
That's pretty nasty.
Why does it have straps on it?
I don't know. You tell me.
I don't know why
There's a strap on it.
I don't know.
You're the smart one.
So much for that rain check.
Good night, hot stuff.
I have to feed them.
I'm waiting for you.
Dan! Dan. Dan.
Dan, wake up!
Oh, dear. I woke you.
No, I-I don't know
how she got in.
That's the point. We woke up,
and she was in our bedroom.
Yeah, okay. No, no, no, no, no.
- What?
- I'll call them.
The children.
Take care of the children.
My Norman.
My sweet, sweet Norman.
This way, Mrs. Stanton.
Such a nice girl.
- Too bad.
- I'm very sorry about this.
she just walked out.
So she made it
all the way here.
Well, this is what she knows.
This place, it's
what she remembers.
She must've walked
through the woods.
Without any shoes?
How far is that?
Um, they always kept a
spare hidden outside.
That's how she got in.
You might want to
change the locks,
all the same.
Gretchen said she didn't
even have any kids.
That just doesn't make any sense.
Then what was she talking about?
Babe, she's confused.
She's old.
I don't know. I feel like We're somehow
taking advantage of her or something.
Are you kidding me?
You saw her.
She didn't even know
where she was.
If it wasn't us that came
and snatched up this place,
it Would've been somebody else.
At least We're good people.
Give me one sec.
So that was Roger.
He wants me to
fly out to Chicago.
But I thought I had you
for the next week.
I'm sorry. Apparently There's
some client I'm supposed to meet.
It's really important.
Hey, babe, I'm heading into
town for some supplies.
- You need anything?
- Nope. I'm good.
- Okay. I guess I'll see you in a bit.
- All right.
Where did you get
that weirdo book?
It's not a weirdo book.
I got it at the library.
You know,
that big building in town
with all the books in it.
Right, right, right. That place
with the words on paper.
- Yeah.
- Oh.
Anyway, so why are
you reading it?
I don't know.
Thought I'd try to brush up
on the region's history.
Mm. You know, just in case
our guests ask.
That's very smart.
Oh. Oh, babe, look,
it's our house.
It says here that the man
who built it in 1665,
Arthur march,
was a carriage maker.
Hence the name.
That's clever.
- You are such a dork!
- I know.
Oh, his wife, Lydia,
was a midwife
to the early colonists.
That's kind of cool.
Oh, babe, listen to this. Look.
"When a mysterious illness
"plagued the colony's children,
"Lydia was blamed for it
"and accused of
practicing witchcraft.
She was tried
and hanged in 1669."
Can you believe that?
Some kids get the flu, and
immediately it's a woman's fault.
Just, I love
my little feminist.
- Well...
- So cute.
Yeah, just... It's a
little frustrating.
- I love you.
- I love you.
- Hurry back, okay?
- I will.
Bye, wylie. See you later.
Wylie? Wylie?
You want to go for a walk?
All right. All right.
Come on! Come on! Yeah!
Wylie, come on, boy.
Hey, what's up?
- Is this your dog?
- Yeah.
What's his name?
Hey, You're the new owner
of that inn, right?
You mean the carriage house?
Yeah, the old witch's place.
- You, uh, want one?
- Uh, no, thanks.
I don't smoke.
Hey, listen,
I've got to get back.
My husband's going to
start to worry.
You want to let go of my dog?
Sure thing.
Come on.
See you around.
Wylie, come on.
Wylie, come on.
Let's go to bed.
Wylie? Wylie.
Hey, come on.
Wylie, get away from there.
Are you sure?
Yes, Dan, I'm sure it rang,
but it said it was coming
from the east room.
That's weird. It's probably just
something wrong with the wiring.
I'll check it when I get home.
Okay, yeah. I guess
I'm just being silly.
Hey, I got to go, but I'll
see you tomorrow, okay?
Okay. Bye.
Norman, you dirty old man.
Sweetie, you in there?
Hey, I'm home.
Hey, there.
You want some company?
No, no, no, no. I didn't
want you to turn it off.
I just wanted to let
you know I was home.
Hey, is something wrong?
I'm fine.
I'm fine.
You made quite the dent
here today, babe.
I've been busy.
I can see that.
Tried calling you.
I didn't hear the phone ring.
I was a little worried.
is everything okay?
I'm just tired.
I haven't been
sleeping too well.
,I missed you.
I missed you, too.
Where were you?
Mm. You're so cold.
Smells good.
Wylie. Hey, buddy.
You all right?
Hey, is something
wrong with him?
He looks spooked. Wylie.
No, I don't know.
Have you been beating our
dog while I've been away?
You have, right?
No, I Would never do that.
I'm just kidding, Jesus.
What's... were you doing a little,
like, gardening before breakfast?
Oh, I forgot to mention that.
There's something wrong
with the washing machine.
It's flooded.
Okay. I'll take a look at it.
Hey, Jess, have you
seen my hammer?
Hey, Jess, you in there?
What the hell
is that locked for?
Um... You didn't hear me
a few minutes ago,
trying to get in?
- No.
- What are you doing in there?
Nothing. Just straightening up.
You're straightening up
with the door locked?
I heard whispering in there.
Babe, who are you talking to?
No one.
Think a raccoon just
tried to Jack our car.
- Wylie?
- Wylie, come on.
We're going upstairs, buddy.
Hey. Upstairs.
Wylie, come on. Upstairs.
Come on.
Come on.
So... I was just wondering,
um, what happened
to your shirt.
I tore it on a nail.
You... you tore it on a
nail, so you threw it out?
I ended up using it as a rag.
As a rag? You loved that shirt.
- You got it on our honeymoon.
- It got old.
Hey, it's me.
I mean, she's been acting
a little weird lately.
Moody or something.
Yeah, that's very funny. No.
You can... yeah, you can go
ahead and tell her that,
because I'm not gonna.
Can you... can you
hang on a second?
Oh, you have got
to be kidding me.
Hey, can I call you back?
Damn it!
What the hell?
Oh, Jesus.
"Live feed"?
My God.
These cameras are
still working.
What the hell?
Oh, hey. You're awake.
Uh, I'm gonna run to the store,
and I've got to fix the roof.
You gonna be okay?
I'm fine.
Okay. All right, see you.
You sure about this?
The SUV is gone.
I saw him pull out.
What about the dog?
Really, dude?
Keep a lookout.
Stay here.
Come on, guys,
this isn't funny.
They're still here.
Hey, honey, just want to
let you know I'm home.
What do we have here?
"October 27th, 1998."
"October 27th, 1998."
What's the matter?
What do you think about
- getting out of here for a few days?
- When?
I don't know.
How about tomorrow?
We still have a lot of
stuff left to do here.
I know, and we've been working
really hard, especially you,
with the unpacking
and the renovations.
I just think it Would be cool
if we just took off
and, uh, cleared our heads.
I just think you've been
working really hard,
and you deserve...
I'm not going anywhere
until We're finished here.
Where have you been?
On a walk.
Did you sleep in here
last night?
You were snoring.
What... what's
the matter with you?
Look, I don't know what I did
to make you so mad and distant.
Okay, maybe it was
my trip to Chicago
when I was supposed to be
here for you, I don't know.
I'm not mad.
Hi. Mrs. Stanton?
If you can just sign in here,
and she's in room 119,
on the left.
Mrs. Stanton,
do you remember me?
My wife and I, we bought
the carriage house.
We're the new owners.
Uh, Mrs. Stanton,
the other night
you mentioned
something to my wife
about the children.
Did I?
You don't...
You don't remember that?
Uh, did your...
Did your husband ever
mention seeing anything?
You leave my Norman
out of this.
My husband was a good man!
I'm sure he was. I just...
I need to know if
he, uh, saw anything unusual.
That room...
It was supposed to be
a nursery.
What room?
The east guest room.
Only, the wife
couldn't have children.
But that didn't stop her.
Wait a minute.
I remember you.
Those children,
the ones you've seen?
I didn't mention
anything about...
They need to be fed.
They should have burned her.
Hanging's not enough.
You need to burn her
before it's too late!
I'm sorry I've been
acting so strange lately.
It's just this house.
That's... Totally fine.
It's okay.
Where are you?
I know You're there.
What are you waiting for?
Let's see what
you've been up to.
Where'd you go?
There you are.
What are you doing?
An... anyone there?
You out for another walk?
Are you all right?
No, I'm not all right.
I have a headache.
I'm definitely coming
down with something.
Where's wylie?
Don't know.
You didn't take him out with
you when you went for a walk?
Nope. He wouldn't come.
You said it yourself...
he's been acting strange.
Oh, he's been acting strange?
Hey, boy!
Come on! Come on!
I'm sure he's just
out for a walk.
Hey, um, I'm just wondering,
were you burning something in the
kitchen earlier this morning?
It's just some incense.
"Incense." Okay, um,
can you do me a favor
and not do that again?
Because it smells like shit.
Just great.
- What are you doing?
- Jesus!
What are you doing?
I heard a sound up here.
I was just investigating.
Just go to bed.
Man, where the hell is she?
Jess, you down here?
What have you done to me?
Let me out of this thing.
There's an evil
inside you, Dan.
But don't worry.
We'll get it out.
Jess, wait. Just listen, okay?
Stop it. Jess, Jesus!
Jess, hey, stop.
Please stop!
Stay with me.
You're crazy! You're crazy.
I wasn't expecting you so soon.
- Traffic was quicker than we had expected.
- Ah.
I have the perfect
room for you.
It's the east room,
upstairs and to the left.
Enjoy your stay.
