A Haunting (2005) Episode Scripts

N/A - Cursed

1 Narrator: IN THIS WORLD, THERE IS REAL EVIL IN THE DARKEST SHADOWS AND IN THE MOS ORDINARY PLACES.
THESE ARE THE TRUE STORIES OF THE INNOCENT AND THE UNIMAGINABLE.
[ GASPS ] Narrator: FOR ROMIE HOLGUIN, THIS IS THE BEGINNING OF A TRIAL OF SANITY.
[ GASPS ] Narrator: A DARK ENTITY ATTACKS HER IN HER OWN HOME.
WITH THE HELP OF PARANORMAL INVESTIGATORS, SHE DISCOVERS A GATEWAY INSIDE HER HOUSE AND ANOTHER ONE INSIDE HER MIND.
BETWEEN THE WORLD WE SEE AND THE THINGS WE FEAR, THERE ARE DOORS.
WHEN THEY ARE OPENED, NIGHTMARES BECOME REALITY.
-- Captions by VITAC -- NEARLY A CENTURY BEFORE TUCSON, ARIZONA, BECAME PART OF THE UNITED STATES, SPANISH MISSIONARIES CAME LOOKING FOR SOULS TO CONVERT.
TODAY, THEIR INFLUENCES ARE STILL FELT HERE PROOF THAT THE PAST IS NEVER COMPLETELY DEAD AND BURIED.
ROMIE HOLGUIN AND HER HUSBAND, FERNANDO, ARE AT A CROSSROADS IN THEIR LIVES.
ROMIE IS BETWEEN JOBS, AND FERNANDO HAS RECENTLY RETIRED FROM THE MILITARY.
THEY HAVE FOUR CHILDREN, AND THEY'RE STAYING AT ROMIE'S MOTHER'S HOUSE WHILE THEY SEARCH FOR A NEW HOME.
ONE DAY, THEY DECIDE TO EXPLORE A NEW NEIGHBORHOOD.
ROMIE SENSES THAT SHE IS BEING PULLED TOWARDS SOMETHING.
I NOTICED THIS HOUSE THAT HAD OVERGROWN WEEDS THAT WAS VERY RUN-DOWN.
I SAID, "I WANT TO LOOK AT THA HOUSE.
" FERNANDO WHAT DO YOU THINK? JUST THINK.
HE SAID, "NO, YOU'RE CRAZY.
I DON'T WANT TO HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH THAT.
" HONEY, WE'LL FIX THAT.
I DON'T SEE WHY ANYBODY ELSE WOULD WANT A HOUSE THE WAY I WAS WHEN WE FIRST SAW IT.
HONEY, LOOK BEYOND WHAT YOU SEE NOW.
BUT I WANT THIS HOUSE.
WHAT'S SO SPECIAL ABOUT THIS HOUSE? FOR WHATEVER REASON, I WAS JUST DRAWN TO IT.
Narrator: THE COUPLE TALKS TO NEIGHBOURS, HOPING TO FIND OU WHO OWNS THE HOUSE.
THEY LEARN THAT IT'S ABANDONED.
NO ONE EVER STAYS THERE FOR VERY LONG.
THAT NIGHT, ROMIE BEGINS MAKING CALLS TO LOCATE THE OWNER.
FOR SOME REASON, SHE'S OBSESSED WITH THE PROSPECT OF BUYING THE ABANDONED HOUSE.
HONEY, WHY DON'T YOU JUS DROP IT? JUST DROP IT.
WE'LL SAVE SOME MONEY.
MOST PEOPLE -- THEY DON'T GO LOOK FOR THE MOST RUN-DOWN HOUSE THAT THEY CAN FIND AND SAY, "I'M GONNA FIX THIS UP," BECAUSE THA TAKES A LOT OF TIME AND A LOT OF MONEY.
I HAD YOUNG CHILDREN, AND I WANTED TO MOVE OUT OF MY MOTHER'S HOUSE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.
Narrator: A RECURRING NIGHTMARE HAS HAUNTED ROMIE SINCE CHILDHOOD.
I WAS REALLY SCARED THAT I KEPT HAVING IT AND THAT I DIDN' UNDERSTAND WHY I KEPT HAVING IT.
I THOUGHT IT WAS KIND OF TRYING TO GIVE ME A MESSAGE, AND IF I DIDN'T UNDERSTAND, I WAS GONNA KEEP HAVING IT.
Narrator: ROMIE EVENTUALLY TRACKS DOWN THE OWNER OF THE HOUSE AND MAKES A DEAL.
HONEY, WE CAN GET THE HOUSE.
I'VE GONE OVER MY BILLS.
YOU REALLY WANT THIS? YES.
MY BROTHER'S HER BROTHER WAS A CARPENTER, SO HE SAID, "YEAH, IT'S A DOABLE THING.
" SO THAT'S WHAT MADE US DECIDE TO GO AHEAD AND GET IT.
OKAY.
OKAY.
Narrator: AFTER MONTHS OF RENOVATIONS, THE HOLGUIN FAMILY MOVES INTO THEIR NEW HOME.
BOYS Narrator: ROMIE AND FERNANDO'S CHILDREN ARE GLAD TO FINALLY HAVE THEIR OWN SPACE.
GUYS, CHECK YOUR BOXES.
MAKE SURE EVERYTHING'S INSIDE.
EVERYTHING'S HERE.
IT'S HEAVY.
[ SPEAKING INDISTINCTLY ] YOU SCARED ME.
DON'T DO THAT.
I'M SORRY.
Narrator: AFTER NIGHTFALL, SEVERAL MEMBERS OF THE FAMILY ARE AWAKENED BY FAINT NOISES.
VERONICA AND ANGELICA THINK THEY HEAR THEIR BROTHERS TALKING AT THE OTHER END OF THE HALL.
CAN YOU WAIT HERE? WHAT ARE YOU DOING? I'M NOT DOING ANYTHING, I'M BACK HERE.
I LOOK BEHIND ME AND SHE'S STANDING BEHIND ME AND I'M THINKING, "OH NO, WHAT'S IN THE BATHROOM?" WE JUST RAN BACK TO OUR ROOM AND JUST THINK THERE'S SOMETHING WEIRD ABOUT THIS PLACE.
Narrator: TWO NIGHTS LATER [ GASPS ] I COULD SENSE THAT SOMEONE WAS THERE.
[ GROWLS ] Narrator: ROMIE DECIDES TO CHECK ON HER CHILDREN.
THEY WERE SLEEPING.
THEY WERE SOUND ASLEEP.
I FEEL SORRY FOR YOU.
I DIDN'T WANT TO TELL ANYONE GOOD MORNING, HONEY.
IS ANYTHING WRONG? BECAUSE I DIDN'T WANT THEM TO THINK I WAS CRAZY.
I'M JUST SO TIRED TODAY.
DRINK SOME COFFEE, OKAY? SO I KIND OF KEPT IT TO MYSELF.
AND I DON'T REALLY LIKE IT.
I ALWAYS KEPT THINKING, "MAYBE THERE IS AN EXPLANATION FOR IT.
" IS THAT GOOD? Narrator: A FEW NIGHTS LATER [ BREATHING RAPIDLY ] I WAS PARALYZED.
Narrator: ROMIE BEGINS TO DOUBT HER OWN SANITY.
SHE ASSUMES THAT THE THINGS SHE SEES ARE ALL IN HER MIND.
[ SPEAKING SPANISH ] Narrator: ONE DAY, ROMIE AND HER SISTER BRING FOOD TO AN ELDERLY SHUT-IN.
HOLA, SEÑOR, ¿CóMO ESTá? BIEN.
AQUí ESTá SU SOPA.
OH, MUCHAS GRACIAS.
THANK YOU SO MUCH.
OH, THANK YOU.
GRACIAS.
BUENOS DíAS, MR.
GóMEZ.
[ GASPS ] THERE'S A BLACK SPIRIT IN YOUR HOUSE.
THE MOMENT THAT HE SHOOK MY HAND, HE SAID, "THERE'S A SPIRI THAT LIVES IN YOUR HOUSE.
" PLEASE, SIT DOWN.
I DON'T EVEN KNOW HIM.
I NEVER HAD SEEN HIM OR ANYTHING.
Narrator: THE MAN SAYS THA HE'S A CLAIRVOYANT.
USTED HA TENIDO Narrator: HE TELLS ROMIE NO TO BE SCARED AND SUGGESTS THA SHE FOLLOW THE DARK SPIRIT TO FIND OUT WHAT IT WANTS.
HAVE YOU FOLLOWED HIM? I SAID, "NO.
I DON'T CARE WHAT HE WANTS.
I DON'T WANT TO GO THERE.
" MUCHAS GRACIAS.
THANK YOU.
BE CAREFUL.
THERE'S GATEWAY AT YOUR HOUSE.
ALL THE BAD SPIRITS MIGHT COME THROUGH IT.
SO, PLEASE, BE CAREFUL.
[ SPEAKING SPANISH ] Narrator: ROMIE HOPES THAT IF SHE IGNORES THE SPIRIT IT WON'T COME BACK.
[ BREATHING RAPIDLY ] [ BREATHING RAPIDLY ] Narrator: SOMETHING SUPERNATURAL ATTACKS ROMIE HOLGUIN IN HER OWN BEDROOM.
FERNANDO, WAKE UP.
FERNANDO, WAKE UP! WHAT'S THE MATTER? I WAS JUST SO SCARED.
I FELT AS IF THE DEAD PEOPLE WERE TRYING TO CONTACT ME.
I HAD AN UNCLE THAT WOULD ALWAYS SAY, "YOU SHOULD NEVER FEAR THE DEAD.
IT'S THE LIVE ONES THAT WILL HURT YOU," BUT I BEG TO DIFFER.
[ CRYING ] Narrator: FERNANDO TRIES TO BE SUPPORTIVE, BUT HE'S UNSURE WHAT TO BELIEVE.
IT WAS KIND OF HARD BECAUSE THERE WAS REALLY NOTHING I COULD DO OTHER THAN JUST LISTEN TO HER AND TRY TO COMFORT HER.
I SAID, "THAT'S IT.
WE'RE GONNA STAY IN THE LIVING ROOM," SO WE STAYED IN THERE FOR A LONG TIME.
IT WAS A RITUAL FOR THE KIDS.
I'LL GET ALL THE PILLOWS.
OKAY.
THERE YOU GO, GUYS.
I JUST FELT BETTER IF WE WERE ALL TOGETHER.
I JUST FELT THAT I COULD PROTEC THEM.
ONE NIGHT, WE ARE SETTLING IN THE LIVING ROOM AND MY SON SAYS TO ME MOM? YEAH? I KNOW WHY YOU WANT US TO SLEEP IN THE LIVING ROOM.
TALK TO ME, BABY.
BECAUSE OF THE MAN IN BLACK.
WHEN HE SAID THAT TO ME I LITERALLY STARTED CRYING AND FELT REALLY ILL.
IF I THOUGHT IT WAS OKAY, BUT I JUST I DIDN'T WANT ANYTHING TO HAPPEN TO THEM.
Narrator: SO FAR, THE CHILDREN DON'T SEEM FRIGHTENED.
A MAN IN BLACK? I CAN'T TAKE A CHANCE Narrator: BUT ROMIE CANNO IGNORE THE LIKELIHOOD THAT HER HOUSE IS HAUNTED.
I TOLD MY WIFE THAT IF SHE WAS THAT SCARED, THAT WE SHOULD JUST SELL THE HOME AND MOVE.
THIS IS OUR HOME.
BUT SHE TOLD ME THAT SHE WOULD NEVER SELL THE HOUSE.
FERNANDO, WE ARE NOT MOVING OUT OF THIS HOUSE.
WE HAVE TO MOVE OUT OF THIS HOUSE.
Narrator: ROMIE BELIEVES THA SHE ALONE IS THE TARGET OF WHATEVER HAUNTS THE PLACE.
WE ARE NOT LEAVING.
YOU'RE SCARED YOURSELF.
Narrator: THE FAMILY CANNO AFFORD TO MOVE.
SO SHE DECIDES TO SILENTLY ENDURE HER RESTLESS NIGHTS, AS LONG AS HER CHILDREN REMAIN SAFE.
ROMIE IS VERY, VERY STRONG, STRONG-MINDED, STRONG-WILLED, AND SHE NEVER SHOWED LIKE SHE WAS REALLY SCARED, BUT I THINK THAT WAS SO THAT THE CHILDREN WOULDN'T BE SCARED THEMSELVES.
I KNEW THERE WAS SOMETHING HERE, BUT I REALLY DIDN'T THINK THERE WAS ANYTHING THAT COULD HARM US.
Narrator: SOON AFTER, ROMIE FEELS SOMETHING TUGGING ON HER AS SHE SLEEPS.
SHE WOKE UP AND TOLD ME THA SHE HAD A REALLY BAD DREAM.
I HAD THIS DREAM LAST NIGHT.
I SAID, "I MUSTN'T HAVE BEEN FEELING SO WELL LAST NIGHT.
" NO, SOMETHING'S NOT RIGHT.
I JUST FELT LIKE I KEP MOVING.
HE SAID, "YOU DID.
YOU ENDED UP ALMOST IN THE MIDDLE OF THE BED, AND YOU WERE VERY, VERY RESTLESS.
" [ SMOOCHES ] I WAS ON MY WAY TO WORK, SO I LEFT IT AT THAT.
I HAD TEETH MARKS ALONG THE BACK SIDE OF MY ARM.
IT SCARED ME SO HORRIBLY.
ALL I COULD THINK OF WAS GETTING OUT OF THERE AS FAST AS I COULD.
Narrator: ROMIE DRIVES TO WORK, UNABLE TO COMPREHEND WHAT'S HAPPENED TO HER.
JOYCE.
JOYCE.
Narrator: FOR HER OWN SANITY, SHE NEEDS SOMEONE TO VERIFY THA THE BITE MARKS ARE REAL.
TO SEE MY ARM.
WHAT'S WRONG? OH, MY GOD.
GOSH.
YOU'RE THE FIRST ONE WHO BELIEVES ME.
OF COURSE I BELIEVE YOU.
LOOK AT THAT.
YOU SEE THAT? I WANT TO SHOW YOU.
Narrator: LATER THAT NIGHT, ROMIE SHOWS THE MARKS TO HER HUSBAND.
FERNANDO, LOOK AT THIS.
THAT BITE MARK WAS REALLY BIG.
SOMETHING ATTACKED ME IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT.
YOU COULD STILL SEE THEM, AND THAT WAS MAYBE ABOUT EIGHT, NINE HOURS LATER.
WE'RE LEAVING THIS HOUSE.
THAT WAS WHEN HE FIRS REALIZED THAT THIS IS SOMETHING THAT'S REALLY SERIOUS, THAT I REALLY IS REAL.
WE GOT TO LEAVE THIS HOUSE.
Narrator: ONCE AGAIN, THE FAMILY SLEEPS IN THE LIVING ROOM.
THEY CONTINUE TO DO THIS FOR THE NEXT 6 MONTHS.
EARLY ONE MORNING I GOT THAT FEELING THAT THIS MAN IN BLACK WAS WARNING ME THAT SOMETHING WAS WRONG.
HEY, WHAT'S WRONG? I HAVE TO GO.
Narrator: ROMIE SENSES THAT HER ELDERLY AUNT WHO HAS BEEN HOSPITALIZED FOR SEVERAL WEEKS IS IN TROUBLE.
I HAVE TO GO.
Narrator: SHE IMMEDIATELY LEAVES TO CHECK ON HER.
AUNT NINA? SHE TOLD ME "WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN? WHAT TOOK YOU SO LONG?" SHE SAID, "I HAVE BEEN CALLING YOU SINCE EARLY THIS MORNING" AND WHEN SHE TOLD ME THAT, IT SENT CHILLS UP AND DOWN MY BACK.
WITHIN AN HOUR, SHE ACTUALLY DIED.
Narrator: THE DEATH OF HER AUNT HORRIFIES ROMIE.
SHE FEARS THIS IS A SIGN FROM THE DARK SPIRIT THA HAUNTS HER HOUSE, BUT IS IT A WARNING OR A THREAT? SO, WHAT CAN YOU TELL ME EXACTLY ABOUT THE PREVIOUS OWNERS? Narrator: ONE AFTERNOON WHEN A NEIGHBOR COMES TO VISIT, ROMIE LEARNS THE DETAILS OF THE HOUSE'S SORDID PAST.
WHAT HAPPENED? WHAT? THIS HOUSE DOES NOT HAVE A GOOD HISTORY.
HIS FATHER'S GUN A YOUNGER TEEN, MAYBE AGE 15, HAD ACTUALLY SHOT HIMSELF.
HOW? THE FATHER CAME HOME AND FOUND HIM SHOT, AND THEN HUNG HIMSELF.
WHAT? HERE? [ GASPS ] I THINK IT WAS A COUPLE OF YEARS Narrator: FOR THE FIRST TIME, ROMIE HAS A POSSIBLE EXPLANATION FOR THE THINGS SHE'S SEEN.
HAD A LOT OF TROUBLE A SCHOOL.
THE KIDS PICKED ON HIM.
IT'S OKAY.
I WAS AFRAID THAT HISTORY MIGHT REPEAT ITSELF.
THAT'S WHAT SCARED ME.
Narrator: ROMIE EXPERIENCES NOTHING UNUSUAL FOR SEVERAL MONTHS.
THAT ROOM WENT ICE -- ICE-COLD.
I COULD FEEL A SWIRL OF ICE-COLD AIR JUST GOING AROUND ME, AROUND ME.
I COULD ALMOST HEAR THE WIND.
ROMIE.
ROMIE! ROMIE! DO YOU HEAR ME?! GET OUT OF OUR HOUSE! DO YOU HEAR ME?! GET OUT OF OUR HOUSE! HONEY, WHAT'S WRONG? I THINK I TOLD HER I WAS HAVING A REALLY BAD DREAM, BUT I DIDN'T TELL HER ABOUT WHAT HAD HAPPENED.
I DIDN'T WANT TO SCARE HER ANY MORE THAN SHE WAS ALREADY.
IT'S OKAY.
IT'S OKAY.
Narrator: FINALLY, ROMIE AND FERNANDO DECIDE TO ASK FOR HELP.
HI.
Narrator: THEY ASK KENNETH MORELAND, THE DEACON FROM THEIR LOCAL CONGREGATION, TO BLESS THE HOUSE.
YOU HAVE A LOVELY HOME HERE.
THANK YOU.
IN THE BLESSING OF THE HOME, WE'RE ACTUALLY ASKING GOD TO BE PRESENT IN THAT HOME AND TO MAKE THAT HOME A SACRED SPACE.
WHAT WE'LL DO IS SAY SOME PRAYERS TOGETHER.
Narrator: THE COUPLE EXPLAINS THAT THE HOUSE HAS A TROUBLING HISTORY.
PREVIOUS OWNERS THAT LIVED IN THIS HOUSE.
Narrator: THEY FEAR THA SOMETHING EVIL IS HAUNTING THEM.
THE CATHOLIC CHURCH'S POSITION ON THINGS LIKE THIS IS THAT WE KNOW THAT EVIL EXISTS IN THE WORLD.
WE DON'T, AS HUMANS, TOTALLY UNDERSTAND THE REALM OF THA SPIRITUAL LIFE WHATEVER IT IS THAT'S OUT THERE.
WE PRAY IN JESUS' NAME.
AMEN.
FATHER BABY, IT'S TIME FOR YOU TO GO TO BED.
OKAY.
OKAY? RIGHT AFTER THE DEACON LEFT, I FELT AT PEACE AND I FELT LIKE, "FINALLY, THIS IS IT.
" IT WAS JUST STARTING TO GE DARK.
I STARTED TO FEEL LIKE SOMETHING WAS HORRIBLY WRONG.
[ Echoing ] ROMIE.
I DON'T KNOW IF WHATEVER THE DEACON DID JUST MADE THEM STRONGER AT THAT MOMENT.
WHO KNOWS? BUT IT WAS SO FRIGHTENING.
[ BREATHING RAPIDLY ] [ Echoing ] ROMIE.
THERE'S ONE STORY WHERE JESUS WAS APPROACHING A CEMETERY, AND A MAN CAME OUT OF THE CEMETERY, AND HE SUPPOSEDLY HAD A LEGION OF DEVILS IN HIM, MEANING MANY, MANY DEVILS.
AND THEY BEGGED JESUS TO LEAVE AND TO LEAVE THEM ALONE.
AND I FEEL THAT'S EXACTLY WHA WAS HAPPENING IN ROMIE'S SITUATION.
WE HAD TAKEN GOODNESS INTO ROMIE'S HOME AND ASKED FOR THE PRESENCE OF GOD TO BE THERE.
AND WHATEVER THAT PRESENCE WAS THAT WAS THERE DIDN'T LIKE THAT.
[ KEYS JINGLE ] Narrator: FERNANDO RETURNS HOME FROM WORK LATE THAT NIGH AND FINDS THAT ROMIE HAS RETURNED TO SLEEPING IN THE LIVING ROOM.
HI, BABY.
HEY, HONEY.
HOW YOU DOING? GOOD.
HOW ARE YOU? GOOD.
WELL, I'M TIRED.
ARE YOU OKAY SINCE WE HAD THE HOUSE BLESSED? YES.
IT'S FINE, ACTUALLY.
[ CAR DOOR OPENS ] Narrator: YEARS PASS.
ROMIE'S CHILDREN GROW UP, AND ROMIE HERSELF BECOMES A GRANDMOTHER.
THE FRIGHTENING ENCOUNTERS HAVE BECOME LESS FREQUENT.
¿CóMO ESTá? COME HERE.
Narrator: SHE AND FERNANDO REMAIN IN THE HOUSE.
ALEC, HERE'S YOUR LUNCH, BABY.
Narrator: SHE TAKES CARE OF HER GRANDSON ALEC WHILE HIS MOTHER, VERONICA, IS AT WORK.
MICHAEL DON'T WANT ME TO EA THIS.
Narrator: ALEC BEGINS SPEAKING TO AN IMAGINARY FRIEND AT ROMIE'S HOUSE.
ALEC, HONEY, WHO'S MICHAEL? HE'S A LITTLE BOY WHO LIVES HERE.
Narrator: HE CALLS HIS FRIEND "MICHAEL" AND CLAIMS THA MICHAEL SOMETIMES TELLS HIM WHA TO DO.
I KEPT THINKING THAT MAYBE HE WAS JUST MAKING IT UP.
MICHAEL WANTS ME TO GO UPSTAIRS.
AS THE MONTHS WENT ON, HE INTERACTED WITH IT SO MUCH THA I HAD TO COME TO THE CONCLUSION THAT HE WAS ACTUALLY INTERACTING WITH AN ENTITY.
VERONICA, I'M CONCERNED.
WHAT ABOUT? Narrator: ROMIE TELLS HER DAUGHTER THAT SHE BELIEVES SOMETHING MIGHT BE EXERTING AN UNNATURAL INFLUENCE ON ALEC.
MOM, DON'T WORRY ABOUT IT.
ALL KIDS HAVE IMAGINARY FRIENDS.
VERONICA.
I REALLY DIDN'T THINK ABOU HIM BEING HARMED.
BUT I JUST KIND OF THOUGHT OF, "WHAT IN THE WORLD ARE PEOPLE GONNA THINK OF OUR FAMILY?" FIRST, MY MOM SEES THINGS, AND THEN HERE MY SON'S STARTING TO SEE THEM, ALSO.
Narrator: VERONICA TAKES HER SON HOME AND LEARNS THAT HE IS FRIGHTENED OF HIS NEW FRIEND.
MOM, I'M SCARED.
HE DIDN'T WANT THE DOOR CLOSED.
HE DIDN'T WANT TO BE IN ANY ROOM ALONE.
I'M SCARED.
THERE'S NOTHING TO BE AFRAID OF.
CAN YOU TURN THE LIGHT ON? MOM! WHAT'S WRONG, HONEY? THERE'S A MAN IN THE CLOSET.
I DIDN'T KNOW IF HE WAS SCARED OF WHAT NORMAL KIDS ARE SCARED OF -- SOMETHING IN HIS CLOSET, SOMETHING UNDER HIS BED -- OR IF THERE WAS ACTUALLY SOMETHING IN THERE THAT COULD HARM HIM.
THERE'S NO ONE.
BECAUSE HE'S MY KID, I'D LIKE TO JUST PUT HIM IN A LITTLE GLASS BOX AND MAKE SURE NOTHING BAD EVER HAPPENS TO HIM, BU IT'S NOT SOMETHING THAT I CAN CONTROL.
AAH! GET AWAY! AAH! Narrator: A WEEK LATER, ALEC AGAIN VISITS HIS GRANDPARENTS.
WE WERE DOING OUR REMODELING.
AND WE WERE UPSTAIRS.
I WAS WITH MY GRANDSON.
AND WE WERE COMING BACK DOWN THE STAIRS.
ALL OF A SUDDEN HE JUST WENT TUMBLING.
¿POR QUé? AND THEN HE JUST TURNED BACK AND LOOKED AT ME AND SAID, "TATA, WHY DID YOU PUSH ME?" I SAID, "NO, I DIDN'T PUSH YOU.
" LET ME SEE.
THE STAIRS -- ARE YOU OKAY? ALEC.
HE SAID, "WHEN WE WERE COMING DOWN THE STAIRS, ALL OF A SUDDEN, ALEC'S SHOULDER WEN FORWARD," LIKE HE HAD BEEN LITERALLY PUSHED FROM HIS BACK.
Narrator: ALEC ESCAPES WITH ONLY MINOR BRUISES, BUT IT'S CLEAR TO ROMIE THE DARK SPIRI IS BACK.
YES, HI.
IS THIS AMY ALLAN? Narrator: AFTER HER GRANDSON IS PUSHED DOWN THE STAIRS BY AN UNSEEN FORCE, ROMIE TAKES ACTION.
I COULD HANDLE MYSELF BEING ATTACKED, BUT NOW MY GRANDKIDS WERE INVOLVED.
Narrator: ROMIE CONTACTS A PROFESSIONAL PARANORMAL INVESTIGATOR WHO SHE HEARD ON A LOCAL RADIO PROGRAM.
INVESTIGATOR AMY ALLEN VISITS ROMIE'S HOUSE.
HER CASE WAS VERY INTRIGUING.
IT WAS KIND OF A STATE OF EMERGENCY, BECAUSE PEOPLE WERE GETTING HURT.
I FEEL SOMETHING HERE.
Narrator: THE FIRST THING AMY NOTICES ARE NEARBY RADIO AND TV TOWERS, WHICH EMIT HIGH LEVELS OF ELECTROMAGNETIC ENERGY.
LOOK AT THOSE RADIO TOWERS.
Narrator: PARAPSYCHOLOGISTS HAVE SUGGESTED THAT THIS CAN CAUSE HALLUCINATIONS.
AMY CONDUCTS HER INVESTIGATIONS WITH THE HELP OF PARANORMAL SENSITIVES.
TERESA.
HEY, AMY.
HOW ARE YOU DOING? I'M GOOD.
Narrator: SENSITIVES EXPERIENCE THE SPIRIT WORLD IN VARIOUS WAYS.
I'M NOT GONNA TELL YOU A WHOLE LOT.
Narrator: SOME EXPERIENCE I VISUALLYOTHERS THROUGH EMOTION.
THE TECHNICIAN BRINGS EQUIPMEN TO MEASURE ENERGY IN THE HOUSE.
ALL RIGHT, TERESA.
THIS IS THE LIVING ROOM.
SEE HOW YOU FEEL ABOUT THIS ROOM, AND THEN WE'LL GO UPSTAIRS.
YOU GUYS CAN HELP US.
I WANTED ONE OF THREE THINGS TO HAPPEN -- FOR THEM TO PROVE AND HOPE THAT I WAS CRAZY, OR THAT THEY WOULD GET RID OF WHATEVER WAS THERE, AND, THIRDLY, THAT IT WOULDN'T HARM MY GRANDSON.
WHAT WOULD BE BEST -- IF YOU GUYS CAN WAIT OUTSIDE? Narrator: AMY ASKS ROMIE AND FERNANDO NOT TO SPEAK WITH THE SENSITIVES ABOUT THE CASE.
YOU KNOW WHAT? I NEED YOU TO GET SOME READINGS.
I'M GETTING SOME STRONG REACTIONS Narrator: THEY MUST APPROACH THEIR INVESTIGATION WITHOUT ANY PRECONCEPTIONS.
THE READINGS ARE REALLY HIGH.
WE'RE VERY SCIENTIFIC, AND WE WANT ONLY THE FACTS, AND WE HAVE TO CONTROL THIS AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE.
YEAH.
THE READINGS ARE ABSOLUTELY HIGHER.
Narrator: THE TEAM TAKES BASELINE ENERGY READINGS USING AN ELECTROMAGNETIC FREQUENCY METER.
[ BEEPING ] THIS WILL PROVIDE A POINT OF COMPARISON FOR DETECTING ENERGY FLUCTUATIONS DURING THE INVESTIGATION.
TERESA HAS THE ABILITY TO SENSE THE PRESENCE OF SPIRITS AND THEIR EMOTIONS.
[ BEEPING ] TERESA DETECTS AN UNNATURAL PRESENCE.
SHE COULDN'T REALLY MAKE ANY KIND OF DIRECT CONTACT WITH HIM OR GET A STORY OFF OF HIM.
Narrator: TERESA LEAVES.
A SECOND SENSITIVE, ROSALINDA, ARRIVES TO INVESTIGATE USING A DIFFERENT TYPE OF EXTRASENSORY PERCEPTION.
ROSALINDA IS A PSYCHIC KNOWER, WHICH MEANS THAT SHE SEES PICTURES IN HER MIND'S EYE.
SOMETHING REALLY, REALLY BAD.
[ BEEPING ] [ INDISTINCT WHISPERING ] SHE'LL ACTUALLY SEE, LIKE, MOVIES PLAYING IN HER MIND.
WHAT SHE WAS SEEING WAS ROMIE.
BECAUSE THE ENVIRONMENT THERE IS SO HIGH WITH THE ELECTROMAGNETIC FIELD, IT'S ACTUALLY ABSORBING LIVING ENERGY AND THEN PLAYING IT BACK.
SO EVEN THOUGH ROMIE AND HER HUSBAND ARE STILL ALIVE, THEY'RE ALREADY BEING ABSORBED INTO THEIR WALLS OF THEIR HOME AND BEING PLAYED BACK.
Narrator: ROSALINDA SENSES THE PRESENCE OF A DARK ENTITY.
SHE TRIED TO LEAVE THE ROOM AND SAW IN HER MIND IT SAYING, "GO AHEAD AND TRY TO GET RID OF ME.
GO AHEAD.
I DARE YOU.
" Narrator: PARANORMAL INVESTIGATORS ARE CONVINCED THAT A DANGEROUS ENTITY HAS INVADED ROMIE'S HOME.
THE INVESTIGATORS PLAN TO SPEND THE NIGHT THERE TO GET MORE INFORMATION.
WHILE THE INVESTIGATORS SET UP IN ANOTHER PART OF THE HOUSE, ROMIE SUFFERS THROUGH A PARTICULARLY RESTLESS NIGHT.
ALL OF A SUDDEN, I STARTED TO GET REALLY ANXIOUS.
I FELT LIKE THE ROOM WAS FULL OF PEOPLE.
I NEED TO GET OUT OF HERE.
THERE ARE TOO MANY PEOPLE WITH US.
IN THE HOUSE? NO, IN THIS ROOM.
I GOT UP LIKE REALLY DESPERATE AND MY HUSBAND SAID, "WHAT ARE YOU DOING?" I SAID, "I HAVE TO LEAVE.
I FEEL LIKE THERE'S A BUNCH OF PEOPLE IN HERE WITH ME.
I JUST HAVE TO GET OUT OF HERE".
HONEY, HONEY, HONEY.
PLEASE.
Narrator: THE NEXT MORNING, THE SENSITIVES SHARE THEIR EXPERIENCES WITH ROMIE, FERNANDO, AND PARANORMAL INVESTIGATOR AMY ALLEN.
I THINK ROMIE HAS SOME SOR OF PSYCHIC ABILITY.
WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR IS A CORRELATION BETWEEN THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF SENSITIVES.
YESTERDAY, WHEN I WAS TOURING THE HOUSE, I FELT A VERY DARK PRESENCE IN THE BEDROOM, BUT I WAS A VERY STRONG PRESENCE.
I HAD THE SAME EXPERIENCE, TOO.
Narrator: TERESA AND ROSALINDA BOTH DESCRIBE ENCOUNTERS WITH A DARK FIGURE.
ROMIE CONFESSES THAT SHE'S BEEN SEEING THE SAME THING FOR YEARS.
[ SPEAKING INDISTINCTLY ] Narrator: WHEN AMY HEARS THIS, SHE THEORIZES THAT ROMIE HERSELF IS SENSITIVE TO THE SPIRIT WORLD.
SHE SAID TO ME, "I DON'T KNOW HOW YOU LIVE HERE.
" SHE EXPLAINED THAT THERE WERE PORTALS IN THE HOUSE, TWO OF THEM, TO BE EXACT, THAT WERE LIKE A DOORWAY TO THE OTHER SIDE.
THE SPIRITS THAT YOU'RE HEARING ARE COMING AND ENTERING THROUGH THOSE PORTALS.
THAT IS SOMETHING THAT YOU WILL FIND WITH PEOPLE WHO ARE SENSITIVE, THAT THEY MAY HAVE SOME KIND OF VORTEX OR A DOORWAY FOR THE DEAD.
BASICALLY, WHAT HAPPENS IS THEY'RE ATTRACTED TO THE SENSITIVE THAT RESIDES IN THA LOCATION, AND THIS DOORWAY IS FORMED SO THEY CAN TRY TO MAKE CONTACT WITH THE SENSITIVE THAT'S LIVING THERE.
SO I THINK THE SPIRITS THA YOU'RE HEARING COMING AND GOING AND THE VOICES ARE ACTUALLY YOUR SPIRITS.
NOW I FELT LIKE IT WAS ALL TURNED AROUND.
NOT ONLY DID I HAVE PROBLEMS WITH MY GRANDBABY DEALING WITH THIS AND MYSELF DEALING WITH THIS AND THE HOUSE BEING HAUNTED -- NOW I HAD ONE EXTRA THING TO DEAL WITH.
WE JUST NEED TO REALLY GO OVER OUR DATA SOME MORE.
YOUR OWN PERSONAL STRENGTH CAN GET RID OF ALL THESE SPIRITS AND GHOSTS IN HERE, OKAY? Narrator: ROSALINDA SHOWS ROMIE HOW TO PERFORM A RITUAL CLEANSING OF THE HOUSE.
WITH THIS DISH, YOU'RE GONNA BURN IT.
Narrator: SHE BURNS SAGE AND SPRINKLES HOLY WATER AROUND WINDOWS AND DOORWAYS.
CLEANSING YOUR HOUSE.
SO ROMIE COULD ALSO TAKE ON A SENSE OF BEING PROACTIVE IN THIS SITUATION AND TAKING CARE OF WHAT WAS GOING ON AND GAINING SOME CONTROL HERSELF.
OKAY.
Narrator: AMY ALLEN HOPES THAT THIS WILL HELP PURIFY THE ENVIRONMENT BY GETTING RID OF NEGATIVE ENERGY WE'RE GONNA HEAD OUT AND GO BACK OVER ALL OUR NOTES.
Narrator: BUT SHE KNOWS THEY'LL HAVE TO DO MORE RESEARCH TO PUT AN END TO THE HAUNTING.
OKAY, WHAT SHE'S TAUGHT YOU WITH THE SAGE WE DON'T SAY WE HAVE A DEFINITE CONCLUSION.
WE CAN'T DO THAT UNTIL WE'VE GONE OVER ALL OF THE DATA.
PEOPLE THINK THAT WHEN THEY HAVE INVESTIGATORS COME TO THE HOME, "THIS PERSON'S GONNA SOLVE ALL OF MY PROBLEMS RIGHT HERE, RIGH NOW, TODAY.
" AND UNFORTUNATELY, THAT'S NO HOW THIS WORKS.
Narrator: AMY ALLEN GOES HOME TO STUDY HER DATA.
SHE MUST CONSIDER MANY POSSIBILITIES BEFORE TAKING ACTION.
IS THE DARK FIGURE THE SPIRIT OF A DECEASED HUMAN OR SOMETHING ELSE? A FEW WEEKS AFTER THE INITIAL VISIT, AMY ALLEN RETURNS TO ROMIE'S HOUSE TO PERFORM HER OWN MEDITATIVE CLEANSING.
SHE SETS UP IN ROMIE'S BEDROOM, WHERE THE MOST VIOLENT EVENTS HAVE TAKEN PLACE.
I WANTED TO SEE, CAN I DO ANYTHING SPIRITUALLY ABOUT THIS SITUATION? I'M A PHYSICAL MEDIUM, WHICH MEANS THAT I MAKE CONTACT IN A PHYSICAL SENSE.
WHEN I MADE CONTACT WITH THIS THING, IT HAD NO RESPONSE, NO REACTION.
Narrator: AMY BEGINS TO WONDER IF THE ENTITY IS SOMETHING OTHER THAN A GHOST.
I DID THE NOT FEEL I HAD MADE A CONNECTION WITH AN ACTUAL DECEASED INDIVIDUAL.
IT WAS NOTHING BUT ENERGY.
OKAY, IF YOU EXPERIENCE ANYTHING THAT CAUSES YOU FEAR, I WANT YOU TO REPEAT THE BLESSINGS WITH THE HOLY WATER AND TELL THE SPIRIT TO LEAVE, OKAY? I'M SERIOUS.
EVEN IF YOU HAVE TO YELL AT I AND SAY, "I DON'T WANT YOU HERE ANYMORE!" BE SERIOUS, OKAY? THAT SHOULD HELP YOU OUT.
YOU'LL BE FINE, OKAY? ALL OF A SUDDEN, I FEL REALLY LIKE I WAS GONNA BE SICK.
I HAD NEVER FELT SO HORRIBLE.
I SAID, "THAT'S IT.
" I WENT BACK IN THERE FINALLY, AND I SAID, "I AM NOT GONNA LE YOU INTIMIDATE ME.
I'M NOT GONNA LET YOU SCARE ME IN MY HOUSE ANYMORE.
I NEED YOU TO GO.
I NEED YOU TO LEAVE.
" Narrator: ROMIE CALLS AMY ALLEN FOR HELP.
[ INDISTINCT WHISPERING ] [ TELEPHONE RINGING ] Narrator: IN THE MIDST OF A HAUNTED-HOUSE INVESTIGATION, A DARK ENTITY APPEARS IN THE HOME OF PARANORMAL INVESTIGATOR AMY ALLEN.
[ TELEPHONE RINGING ] [ GROWLS ] GET OUT OF MY HOUSE! Narrator: SHE RECOGNIZES THE ENTITY AS ROMIE'S TORMENTOR.
HELLO? AMY, IT'S ROMIE.
IT'S BACK -- THE MAN IN BLACK.
NO, ROMIE, YOU SENT IT TO ME.
AMY, WHAT ARE YOU SAYING? WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT? SHE SAID, "YOU SENT THA MAN IN BLACK TO MY HOUSE.
" Narrator: AMY SUDDENLY REALIZES SOMETHING QUITE EXTRAORDINARY.
THE DARK ENTITY IS NOT A GHOS AT ALL.
IT'S A POLTERGEIST, SOMETHING ROMIE HAS UNKNOWINGLY MANIFESTED HERSELF.
IT WAS LIKE A HUGE PUZZLE, AND I HAD ALL THESE FACTS.
AND I'M LIKE, "IT'S ROMIE.
" THE HAUNTING WAS COMING FROM ROMIE HERSELF, AND SHE WAS PROJECTING IT OUT INTO OUR PHYSICAL REALITY.
IT'S INSIDE OF YOU.
Narrator: AMY CONCLUDES THA ROMIE POSSESSES PSYCHOKINETIC, OR P.
K.
, ABILITIES.
SHE'S CREATED A PHYSICAL EMBODIMENT OF HER OWN ANXIETIES.
ANGER, DEPRESSION, ANXIETY, GUILT, REMORSE.
WHAT THAT MEANS IS IT'S NOT A GHOST LIVING IN THE OUTSIDE WORLD.
[ GASPS ] IT'S THE MOST EXTREME TYPE OF POLTERGEIST HAUNTING.
ROMIE, BECAUSE SHE'S IN CHARGE OF THE FAMILY, COULDN' ALLOW HERSELF TO REALLY EXPERIENCE THESE EMOTIONS.
THIS ENTITY IS INSIDE OF YOU.
WHAT SHE ENDED UP DOING, WITHOUT HER EVEN CONSCIOUSLY BEING AWARE OF THIS, WAS TO PROJECT HER EMOTIONS OUT.
THIS CONSCIOUSNESS TOOK ON ITS OWN DYNAMIC FORCE.
IT'S ALMOST LIKE I'M BEATING MY OWN SELF UP, TECHNICALLY.
I WAS FRIGHTENING MY CHILDREN THAT I WANTED TO PROTECT.
I WAS PROTECTING THEM FROM ME.
AND AT THE SAME TIME, I WAS SCARING THEM.
I WAS THE ONE THAT WAS TORMENTING THEMAND MYSELF, ALSO.
I CALL IT MY CURSE.
Narrator: TODAY, ROMIE AND HER FAMILY LIVE IN RELATIVE CALM.
BUT THEY STILL OCCASIONALLY STRUGGLE WITH BOTH THE SPIRITS THAT HAUNT THEIR HOME AND THE POLTERGEIST THAT TORMENTS ROMIE.
I WOULD LIKE TO CONTROL THIS IN A WAY WHERE I COULD DO GOOD AND NOT EVIL.
BUT IT SEEMS KIND OF HARD FOR ME TO DO THAT IF, IN FACT, I HAVE THE ABILITY TO TORTURE EVEN MY OWN SELF.
IF SHE DOESN'T DEAL WITH HER ABILITIES AND GET A HANDLE ON HER ENERGY AND ALL OF THESE THINGS, IT COULD COME BACK AS I WAS BEFORE OR EVEN WORSE.
IT REALLY IS A CURSE TO ME.
ONE THING I FOUND IN COMMON WITH ALL P.
K.
MANIFESTATIONS IS THAT THE PERSON NEEDS TO HAVE COUNSELING, SOME TYPE OF THERAPY WHERE THEY CAN VENT THEIR EMOTIONS IN A SAFE, POSITIVE SPACE, WITH SOMEONE WHO'S NO GOING TO JUDGE THEM OR BE UPSE WITH THEM, WHERE THEY CAN LITERALLY UNLEASH ALL OF THESE EMOTIONS THAT THEY'VE KEP REPRESSED.
SO THERAPY IS CONSISTENTLY A RECOMMENDATION IN THESE CASES.
