Paranormal Survivor (2015) Episode Scripts

N/A - Possessed

THERE WAS JUST NOTHING TO EXPLAIN IT -- NOTHING.
IT WAS JUST VERY, VERY SCARY.
Narrator: YOU ARE ABOUT TO SEE REAL PEOPLE THIS IS NOT NORMAL.
Narrator: RELIVING HORRIFYING PARANORMAL ENCOUNTERS [ SCREAMS ] FOR THE FIRST TIME AAH! [ SHOUTING ] I WAS SO SCARED.
CALM DOWN! [ SCREAMS ] SO MUCH PAIN.
SO MUCH DEATH.
[ SCREAMING ] I BURIED THIS FOR NEARLY 30 YEARS.
Narrator: BE PREPARED TO BE AFRAID.
-- Captions by VITAC -- CAPTIONS PAID FOR BY DISCOVERY COMMUNICATIONS Producer: UH, STORY NUMBER 16, POSSESSION OF TRISH.
Sterling: I STARTED HAVING NIGHTMARES IN THE YEAR 2000 ABOUT A HOUSE THAT MADE ME FEEL SO MUCH ANXIETY I WOULD WAKE UP CRYING.
I COULDN'T SEE THE OUTSIDE OF A HOUSE.
I DON'T RECOGNIZE THE HOUSE, BUT I WAS SEEING A LITTLE GIRL WANDERING AROUND, AND I WAS SEEING PEOPLE WHO WERE HUNG.
BUT I WASN'T SURE WHA IT HAD TO DO WITH ANYTHING -- I HAD NO CLUE.
I HAD THE NIGHTMARES TWO OR THREE TIMES A WEEK FOR ABOUT SIX MONTHS.
Narrator: ABOUT SIX MONTHS LATER, ROSE AND DAUGHTER TRISH MOVED, RENTING A BEAUTIFUL, HISTORIC HOME.
Sterling: IT WAS A VERY LARGE HOUSE WITH FIVE BEDROOMS, PROBABLY OVER 100 YEARS OLD, WITH A HUGE BACKYARD THAT LED RIGHT OU TO THE DETROIT RIVER.
Narrator: A DREAM HOUSE, OR THE STUFF OF NIGHTMARES? Sterling: WE JUST WALKED IN THE DOOR, TRISH AND I.
[ DOOR CLOSES ] WE KNEW RIGHT THEN WHAT WE HAD DONE.
WE WERE WRONG.
TRISH LOOKED AT ME AND SAID, "MOM, WE SHOULDN'T BE HERE.
" AND I SAID, "I KNOW.
" THE FEELING WAS JUST A LOT OF ANXIETY -- SORROW, JUST SADNESS.
AND I COULDN'T EXPLAIN WHY.
FROM THE MOMENT WE GOT INTO THA HOUSE AND WE STEPPED IN THE DOOR AND REALIZED THAT THIS IS THE HOUSE FROM MY DREAMS -- WE WERE FEELING THIS ANXIETY.
Narrator: ONE PART OF THE HOUSE HIT TRISH HARD.
Veaudry: WE DID A WALK-THROUGH OF THE HOUSE -- GOT TO THE TOP FLOOR, WHICH WAS THE ATTIC.
I JUST HAD AN INTENSE FEELING OF SADNESS COME OVER ME.
AT THAT POINT I DROPPED TO MY KNEES AND I STARTED TO CRY.
AND I COULDN'T STOP, COULDN'T EXPLAIN WHY I FELT THAT WAY.
[ SOBBING ] Narrator: PENNILESS AND STUCK THERE, ROSE AND TRISH RETREATED TO A PART OF THE HOUSE WHERE THEY FELT SECURE.
Sterling: THE ANXIETY WAS THROUGHOUT THE WHOLE HOUSE, BUT WE STAYED ON THE MAIN FLOOR WHICH, LIKE IN MY DREAMS, THAT WAS THE ONLY PLACE WE WERE SAFE.
AND THAT IS EXACTLY WHERE WE SLEPT -- TOGETHER.
Narrator: BUT AS THE MOON ROSE, THINGS WENT BUMP IN THE NIGHT.
[ WOOD CREAKING, SCREAMING ] Sterling: THERE WAS SCREAMS, THERE WAS STOMPING, THERE WAS DOORS SLAMMING.
[ DOOR CLOSES ] [ THUDDING ] SHADOWS COMING DOWN THE STAIRS, YOU'D HEAR THE FOOTSTEPS.
IT -- IT WAS SO SCARY I TRIED TO STAY AWAY FROM THE UPSTAIRS, TRIED TO KEEP HER DOWN.
Narrator: BUT LIKE A MOTH TO A FLAME, TRISH FOUND HERSELF DRAWN TO THE ATTIC.
I'D SEE A LITTLE GIRL UPSTAIRS IN THE ATTIC.
SHE LOOKED TO BE FIVE OR SIX YEARS OLD, WEARING A WHITE NIGHTGOWN.
I WOULD ALWAYS FIND HER UPSTAIRS IN THE CLOSET.
SHE LOOKED LIKE A REAL PERSON.
I KNEW SHE WAS A GHOST.
AS SOON AS SHE WOULD GO MISSING, I WOULD FIND TRISH UPSTAIRS.
SHE WOULD BE BRINGING ANYTHING THAT A CHILD WANTED TO THIS LITTLE GIRL.
BUT I COULDN'T SEE HER AT ALL.
Veaudry: SHE WAS JUST LONELY.
SHE WANTED SOMEONE TO KEEP HER COMPANY, SO I WOULD BRING HER TOYS A FEW TIMES A DAY.
SOMETIMES A SPIRIT, IN ITS ATTEMPT TO RECONNEC WITH THE WORLD OF THE LIVING, WILL USE SOME SORT OF TRICKERY AND MAKE IT SEEM LIKE IT IS YOUR FRIEND.
SPIRITS LOOK FOR THE EASIEST TARGETS -- CHILDREN.
THEY WANT EASY PREY, SOMEONE THEY CAN EASILY TAKE OVER AND CONTROL, FURTHERING ITS AGENDA AND GETTING MORE OF A HOLD ON YOU.
Narrator: SOON TRISH STARTED SEEING OTHER THINGS -- HORRIBLE THINGS.
[ SCREAMS ] WHAT'S WRONG? I WOULD SEE BLACK PEOPLE HANGING FROM THE RAFTERS, LIKE, ON A NOOSE.
UM THERE'S DEAD BODIES -- HANGING! Sterling: SHE WAS TELLING ME, "THEY'RE RIGHT THERE, MOTHER.
THEY'RE RIGHT THERE.
" AND I COULDN'T SEE THEM.
Narrator: AS THE DAYS PASSED, TRISH BEGAN TO FALL APART.
Sterling: TRISH WAS DOING REALLY STRANGE THINGS.
SHE WAS IN A DAZE.
AND IT'S LIKE SHE WAS NOT EVEN THERE.
I COULDN'T LET HER DO ANYTHING IN THE HOUSE.
SHE'D PUT SOMETHING ON THE STOVE AND LEAVE IT THERE, WALK AWAY.
SHE DIDN'T KNOW WHO SHE WAS.
Veaudry: I HAD GONE WEEKS WITHOU SLEEPING, WITHOUT EATING.
I COULDN'T.
I WASN'T TIRED.
NONE OF IT WAS AFFECTING ME.
I COULDN'T FIGURE OUT WHY.
ALMOST LIKE I HAD NO CONTROL AS TO WHAT I WAS DOING.
Narrator: TRISH'S BEHAVIOR GREW MORE AND MORE BIZARRE.
THERE WAS TIMES WHEN SHE WANTED OUT OF THE HOUSE.
"MOM, WE GOT TO GET OUT OF HERE.
WE GOT TO GET OUT OF HERE.
" AND I'D SAY, "YEAH, WE GOT TO GET OUT.
" AND I WAS SEARCHING FOR A PLACE.
THERE'S OTHER TIMES WHEN SHE WOULD SAY, "WE'RE NOT GOING ANYWHERE.
WE'RE STAYING RIGHT HERE.
WE'RE NOT LEAVING.
" WE'RE NOT LEAVING! NOT! THAT'S WHEN I KNEW IT WASN'T HER, BECAUSE I KNOW WHEN SHE WASN' HER NORMAL SELF.
SHE WANTED OUT.
Zimmermann: A SPIRIT CAN AFFECT A PERSON IN MANY DIFFERENT WAYS.
THEY MAY STOP EATING, THEY MAY HAVE TROUBLE SLEEPING, THEY MAY START ENGAGING IN SELF-DESTRUCTIVE ACTIVITIES.
THEY LOSE THEMSELVES.
A SPIRIT DOESN'T POSSES A PERSON FOR GOOD INTENTIONS.
THEY ARE TAKING OVER THIS PERSON'S BODY, THEIR PERSONALITY, AND I DON'T CONSIDER THAT GOOD IN ANY WAY.
Narrator: DESPERATE FOR ANSWERS, ROSE STARTS DIGGING INTO THE HOUSE'S HISTORY.
STARTED DOING A BIT OF RESEARCH AND FOUND OU THEY HAD CAUGHT SOME PEOPLE WHO WERE INVOLVED WITH THE UNDERGROUND RAILROAD COMING ACROSS, AND HUNG THEM ON THIS -- ON THE CANADIAN SIDE, BEHIND OUR HOUSE.
Narrator: AND THEN, ANOTHER HORRIFYING DISCOVERY.
WE COULDN'T UNDERSTAND WHY A LITTLE GIRL WOULD BE INVOLVED IN THIS AND FOUND OUT THAT A PREACHER HAD GOTTEN HIS DAUGHTER PREGNANT, AND HE DROWNED THAT CHILD BEHIND OUR HOUSE IN THE RIVER.
THAT WAS IN 1840.
AND THAT'S WHAT WORRIED ME.
I DIDN'T WANT THIS CHILD TO TAKE HER OVER TO GO DOWN TO THE RIVER AND DO WHAT HAPPENED TO HER.
I DIDN' WANT MY DAUGHTER TO DROWN.
Narrator: TERRIFIED OF THE RIVER'S LURE, ROSE KEPT VIGIL OVER HER DAUGHTER FOR WEEKS.
BUT THEN CAME A NIGHT Veaudry: I HAD WAITED FOR MY MOTHER TO FALL ASLEEP, AND I WALKED IN THE PITCH-BLACK DOWN TO THE DETROIT RIVER, DRAWN THERE WITH THIS LITTLE GIRL.
COME WITH ME.
Narrator: TRISH STERLING'S BODY HAD BEEN TAKEN OVER BY THE SPIRIT OF A LITTLE GIRL NOW BECKONING HER TO THE ICY WATERS OF THE DETROIT RIVER.
I WALKED IN THE PITCH-BLACK, DOWN TO THE DETROIT RIVER, DRAWN THERE WITH THIS LITTLE GIRL.
COME WITH ME.
FOLLOW ME.
Veaudry: IT WAS LIKE SOMEBODY ELSE WAS USING MY BODY.
ALMOST LIKE I HAD NO CONTROL AS TO WHAT I WAS DOING.
Narrator: TRISH'S MOTHER HAD NO IDEA SHE WAS GONE.
I HAD WOKEN UP, AND SHE WAS GONE.
I SEARCHED FOR HER ALL OVER THE HOUSE, WENT THROUGH ALL THE ROOMS, AND I-I PANICKED.
Narrator: A WAVE OF FEAR WASHED OVER HER.
RIGHT AWAY, I THOUGHT ABOUT THE RIVER.
[ WATER SPLASHING, SCREAM ] [ GASP ] I CAN'T RECALL WHY, BUT I WAS IN THE WATER.
I CAN'T RECALL WHY I WAS IN THE WATER, BUT I -- I ENDED UP BACK AT THE HOUSE.
MY MOTHER FOUND ME.
[ BOTH SOBBING ] I WAS JUST SO GLAD THAT SHE WAS STILL ALIVE.
[ SIREN WAILS ] SHE WAS IN THE HOSPITAL FOR -- FOR ABOUT A WEEK.
WHATEVER HAD A HOLD OF ME, I-I HAD TROUBLE -- TROUBLE GETTING RID OF IT.
IT STILL FOLLOWED ME.
IT SCARED ME.
THAT -- THAT HOUSE SCARED ME.
I DIDN'T WANT TO GO BACK.
Narrator: WHILE TRISH IS IN THE HOSPITAL, ROSE PACKS UP AND FLEES THE HOUSE.
Veaudry: WHEN MY MOTHER TOLD ME SHE FOUND US A PLACE, I WAS OBVIOUSLY VERY THANKFUL.
LIVING IN THAT HOUSE WAS, UH, BASICALLY LIVING A NIGHTMARE.
Narrator: ONCE OUT OF THAT HOUSE, TRISH WAS ABLE TO PIECE HER LIFE BACK TOGETHER.
AFTER EVERYTHING I HAD GONE THROUGH, I DIDN'T WANT TO EVER EXPERIENCE THAT AGAIN.
[ SCREAMS, GASPS ] Narrator: SOMETIMES SPIRITS TAKE CONTROL OF THE LIVING TO DO THEIR BIDDING.
OTHER TIMES THE SPIRI JUST WANTS TO COME BACK, AND SEARCHES FOR A SUITABLE HOST.
STORY NUMBER 12, "THE WOLVERTON.
" WE PURCHASED THE HOUSE IN APRIL, 2008 -- COUNTRY SETTING, OLD TRADITIONAL, 1800s ARCHITECTURE.
I WAS JUST SOLD BEFORE I WAS EVEN INSIDE THE HOUSE.
IT JUST DREW ME IN.
ROSEANNE SAID, "I WANT TO BUY THE HOUSE -- IMMEDIATELY.
" SHE JUST SAID, "THIS IS THE ONE.
" Narrator: THE HOUSE WAS THE FORMER HOME OF A PROMINENT LOCAL FAMILY.
AND AS DAVID AND ROSEANNE WOULD SOON DISCOVER, ONE FAMILY MEMBER WAS STILL HANGING ABOUT.
David: THE REAL-ESTATE LADY AND THE OWNER HAD ARRANGED CHAMPAGNE AND OYSTERS.
[ INDISTINCT CELEBRATION ] THE WOMAN WHO OWNED THE HOUSE STARTED TALKING ABOUT, UH, SPIRITS.
IT'S BEEN GREAT LIVING HERE -- EXCEPT FOR THE, YOU KNOW, GHOSTS.
AND THEN AT POINT, SHE SAID, "HE FREQUENTLY VISITS ME AT NIGHT.
" AND IMMEDIATELY MY WIFE GOT A LITTLE BIT PARANOID.
BUT I WAS TOLD, "DON'T WORRY ABOUT IT.
SHE DOESN'T KNOW.
SHE'S JUST HAD A FEW GLASSES OF CHAMPAGNE TOO MANY," AND I LET IT GO.
Narrator: SETTING CONCERNS ASIDE, DAVID, ROSEANNE, AND THEIR SEVEN-YEAR-OLD DAUGHTER EILíS MOVED INTO WOLVERTON HALL.
THEIR SON PERRY AND HIS FIANCéE ALSO STAYED OVER FOR THE FIRST WEEKEND.
HE REALLY SHOULD HAVE JUST STAYED AWAY.
Roseanne: PERRY AND LISA HAD SAT ON THE BED, AND IT WAS AT THAT POIN SHE SAID PERRY JUST LOOKED OVER TO THE DOORWAY AND MENTIONED THAT THERE WAS A MAN STANDING THERE.
AND IT WAS AT THAT POINT SHE SAID HIS WHOLE DEMEANOR CHANGED.
HE WENT QUIET, HIS FACE WAS EXPRESSIONLESS.
SHE THEN ASKED HIM, "PERRY, ARE YOU OKAY?" WHAT? IT'S HURTING ME.
[ PANTING ] SOMEONE'S HURTING ME.
HE GOT UPSET.
HE STARTED CRYING.
THERE'S SO MUCH BLOOD! TALKING ABOUT PEOPLE THAT WERE IN PAIN, AND HE COULD NOT HELP THEM.
HE'S HURTING ME.
[ SCREAMING ] HE WAS CRYING AND CONVULSING SO BAD JUST SO UPSET.
HE WAS REALLY IN TROUBLE -- PHYSICALLY, EMOTIONALLY.
[ CONTINUES SCREAMING ] FOR ME TO SEE THIS, I WAS JUST, LIKE Roseanne: HE JUST KEP GOING OVER ABOUT SO MUCH PAIN, SO MUCH DEATH, SO MUCH MISERY.
[ SCREAMING ] WE JUST COULD NO GET AHOLD OF HIM.
Perry: [ SCREAMS ] Narrator: SHORTLY AFTER MOVING INTO WOLVERTON HALL, THE WEBER'S SON PERRY WAS OVERCOME WITH TERROR.
HE JUST KEPT GOING OVER ABOUT SO MUCH PAIN, SO MUCH DEATH, SO MUCH MISERY.
[ SCREAMING ] Roseanne: THAT WENT ON THE WHOLE NIGH UNTIL 7:30, 8:00 IN THE MORNING.
SO MUCH DEATH MISERY.
SOMETHING HAD JUST TAKEN OVER AND -- AND HE WAS IN ANOTHER PLACE.
AND HE COULD NOT GET BACK.
AND EVENTUALLY HE PASSED OU AND WENT TO SLEEP.
HE WAS JUST SO EXHAUSTED.
SINCE WE MOVED TO WOLVERTON, THINGS STARTED TO CHANGE.
Narrator: THE FIRST CLUE ABOUT THE HOUSE WAS DISCOVERED IN A BOOK.
MY NEIGHBOR NEXT DOOR TO ME WHOSE BEEN IN WOLVERTON FOR OVER 30 YEARS, SHE SAID TO ME, "I HAVE A BOOK YOU NEED TO READ ABOUT THE WOLVERTONS AND THE SONS WHO WENT TO THE CIVIL WAR.
" SO I READ THE BOOK, AND THERE WAS A CHAPTER -- IT WAS A LETTER FROM DANIEL.
HE WAS IN THE MIDDLE OF A BATTLE AND, WORD FOR WORD, WHA HE EXPRESSED TO HIS SISTER ROSE IN THE BOOK WAS EXACTLY WHAT MY SON HAD SAID DURING HIS CONVULSIONS.
THERE'S SO MUCH BLOOD! [ SCREAMS ] I JUST GOT A CHILL.
Narrator: THE BOOK DETAILED THE HISTORY OF THE WOLVERTON FAMILY AFTER WHICH THE HOUSE WAS NAMED.
IT INCLUDED THE WRITINGS OF THEIR SON DANIEL, WHO FOUGHT IN THE CIVIL WAR.
COULD IT BE THAT DANIEL WOLVERTON WAS TRYING TO COME BACK? EILíS, MY DAUGHTER -- IT WAS ALMOST LIKE YOU WOULD BE TALKING TO HER AND SHE'S NOT THERE.
EILíS? IT WAS VERY STRANGE.
Narrator: SOON, EILíS BEGAN ACTING CURIOUSLY.
Roseanne: SHE WOULD SAY THAT SHE WAS A MOTHER OF HER IMAGINARY FRIENDS -- THEY WERE HER CHILDREN.
THESE ARE MY CHILDREN.
AND "YOU'RE IN MY HOUSE.
" IT'S MY HOUSE.
IT DIDN'T STOP.
IT JUST DIDN'T STOP.
AND IT WAS AT THAT POIN SHE WOULD SAY TO ME, "MOM, THERE'S A MAN OVER THERE.
" Narrator: WAS DANIEL WOLVERTON PAYING HER A VISIT? Roseanne: AND I WOULD JUST RESPOND, "OKAY, DO YOU WANT MOMMY TO GET RID OF THEM?" AND SHE WOULD GO "YES.
" HAPPENED ALL THE TIME.
Narrator: EILíS'S BEHAVIOR GREW INCREASINGLY BIZARRE.
ONE NIGHT WE HAD DECIDED WE WERE GOING UP TO THE BIG BED AND -- AND MAKE SOME POPCORN AND HAVE A TV NIGHT.
AND I WENT TO GET IN TO THE BED BESIDE HER AND SHE SAID NO! "NO.
" REALLY, REALLY ANGRY, FRUSTRATED "NO.
" NO, MOMMY.
SHE TOLD ME, "YOU CAN'T COME IN TO BED.
YOU CAN'T TOUCH MY CHILDREN.
" AND I ASKED HER, "WHERE ARE YOUR CHILDREN?" SHE GOES, "THEY'RE HERE.
MY THREE CHILDREN, THEY'RE DEAD.
" I ASKED, "DID YOU HURT YOUR CHILDREN?" SHE RESPONDED, "NO.
THEY'RE FATHER WITH A HAMMER.
" SCARY.
ALL I CAN SAY IS SCARY.
Narrator: IT WASN'T LONG BEFORE SOMETHING TOOK HOLD OF YET ANOTHER FAMILY MEMBER.
David: I'M A PRETTY LAID-BACK GUY.
BUT LIVING IN THE HOUSE, THE PRESSURE STARTED REALLY DEVELOPING.
UM ARE YOU KIDDING ME, ROSE? IT STARTED TO ESCALATE.
HAVE YOU SEEN THIS PLACE? UNCONTROLLABLE ANGER, UNEXPECTED, VERBAL -- TO MYSELF AND TO EILíS.
ONE MINUTE HE'D BE OKAY, NEXT MINUTE HE -- HE JUST BECAME SOMETHING ELSE, SOMEONE ELSE.
WHY DO I HAVE TO DEAL WITH THIS?! DO NOT TELL ME TO CALM DOWN! YOU JUST -- IT WAS LIKE SOMEBODY SHOOK UP A BOTTLE OF COKE AND YOU'RE READY TO BLOW UP.
GET HER CALM NOW.
SOME DAYS WERE REALLY BAD.
YOU JUST FEEL LIKE, UM, PUNCHING SOMEBODY.
THAT'S HOW BAD IT GOT.
HE WOULD THROW THINGS -- FURNITURE, TELEVISIONS.
ANYTHING HE COULD DAMAGE, HE WOULD DAMAGE.
THIS WENT ON AND ON AND IT GOT WORSE AND WORSE.
AND YOU'RE, LIKE, TRYING TO CONTROL IT.
COULDN'T.
I WOULD JUST LEAVE THE HOUSE.
I JUST HAVE TO GET OUT.
THE INTENSITY WAS JUST OVERWHELMING.
SPIRITS CAN VERY OFTEN CHANGE A PERSON'S PERSONALITY AND HAVE THEM BEHAVE IN WAYS THEY NEVER WOULD HAVE DREAMED OF OTHERWISE.
AND THESE CAN BE QUITE DESTRUCTIVE, BOTH TO THEMSELVES AND THE PEOPLE AROUND THEM.
WHEN YOU LOSE YOUR SELF-CONTROL TO THAT EXTREME, AND IT'S NEVER BEEN IN YOUR NATURE VERY WORRIED.
VERY, VERY WORRIED.
Roseanne: THAT GOT MY ATTENTION AND IT WAS AT THAT POIN I DECIDED I-I'M GONNA GET SOME -- SOME MEDIUM, SOME PARANORMAL HELP.
McKee: WHEN WE PULLED UP TO THE HOUSE, WE NOTICED A MALE SPIRI IN THE TOP WINDOW.
SO I KNEW THAT WE WERE DEALING WITH SOME PRETTY STRONG ACTIVITY IF IT WAS THERE RIGHT OFF THE BAT TO GREET US.
THE HOME WAS A VERY OLD HOME.
AND OLD THINGS TEND TO ATTRACT SPIRITS.
IT HAD A VERY ANGRY, VIOLENT FEELING.
AND INSTANTLY I START HAVING THIS VISION OF THEIR DAUGHTER AND THIS MALE ENERGY, THIS SPIRIT STANDING JUST GLARING AT HER WITH ABSOLUTE ANGER AND -- AND HATRED.
Narrator: THE SPIRIT DIDN'T TAKE KINDLY TO SAM AND KRISTINE'S INVESTIGATION.
McKee: I WAS COMING DOWN THE TOP STAIRS, AND I FELT THESE TWO HANDS ON MY BACK [ GASPS ] AND THEY PUSHED ME.
I FREAKED RIGHT OUT.
[ SCREAMS ] Narrator: RIDDING THE HOUSE OF WOLVERTON OF THE ENTITY THAT HAD TAKEN OVER PROVED TO BE DANGEROUS BUSINESS FOR PARANORMAL INVESTIGATOR KRISTINE McKEE.
I WAS COMING DOWN THE TOP STAIRS, AND I FELT THESE TWO HANDS ON MY BACK [ GASPS ] AND THEY PUSHED ME AND I WENT DOWN, JUST SLID RIGHT DOWN, AND I SCREAMED AT THE TOP OF MY LUNGS.
[ SCREAMS ] Roseanne: AFTER THEY DID THEIR PARANORMAL EVALUATION, THEY HAD CALLED US ALL INTO THE LIVING ROOM.
THEY SAT US DOWN -- EILíS, MYSELF, AND DAVID.
AND -- AND THEY HAD VALIDATED THE NEGATIVE ENERGY -- IT'S REAL.
SO THAT GAVE ME SOME SANITY.
FOR THE FIRST TIME, I-I CRIED.
I CRIED.
DUE TO THE AGGRESSIVENESS OF THE NEGATIVE SPIRIT IN THE HOME, WE HAD TO GET RID OF THEM IMMEDIATELY.
Roseanne: THEY HAD SAID THERE WAS A NEGATIVE ENERGY, AND IT WAS FEEDING AND FUELING ON DAVID.
IT WAS GETTING HIS ENERGY FROM DAVID.
IT DID NOT LIKE CHILDREN AND IT DID NOT LIKE WOMEN.
IT WANTS TO HURT.
IF A SPIRIT HAS DIED IN A VIOLENT WAY, IT MAY BE VERY ANGRY THAT ITS LIFE WAS CUT SHORT.
IT MAY BECOME VERY VINDICTIVE AND TRY TO TAKE OU ITS FRUSTRATIONS, VENT ITS ANGER ON THE LIVING.
SPIRITS FROM THE PAS CAN GET TRAPPED IN THE PRESEN BECAUSE THERE'S SOME REGRET, SOME EMOTIONAL TRAUMA THAT HAS MADE THEM LOSE THEIR WAY.
THERE IS A PROCESS OF CROSSING OVER WHERE WE INVITE THE LIGHT BETWEEN THE CORRIDORS BETWEEN HERE AND THERE TO OPEN UP.
AND WHEN THAT HAPPENS THEN WE WILL WALK A SPIRIT IN SO FAR, AND THEN THEY GO THE REST OF THE WAY.
BUT NOT ALL OF THEM GO NICELY.
SOME OF THEM GO KICKING AND SCREAMING.
Narrator: AND DANIEL WOLVERTON WAS ONE WHO WOULD NOT GO GENTLE INTO THAT GOOD LIGHT.
THE NEGATIVE ENERGY WAS COMMUNICATING WITH ME TELLING ME, "YOU CAN'T DO IT.
YOU CAN'T GET RID OF ME.
" MAKING ME FEEL ILL, MAKING ME FEEL SICK [ WINCES, GAGS ] TRYING TO FORCE ME TO STOP.
[ COUGHS ] McKee: THE MALE ENTITY WAS SO ANGRY.
MY MAIN CONCERN WAS JUST GETTING HIM OU AND GETTING HIM AS FAR AWAY FROM THAT FAMILY AS WE POSSIBLY COULD.
WE SUGGESTED SMUDGING -- THE BURNING OF SAGE.
WE DID A FULL HOME CLEANSING IN WHICH WE SEALED THE HOME ITSELF WITH SALT FROM THE DEAD SEA.
THIS IS A VERY STRONG BARRIER THAT KEEPS OUT NEGATIVE SPIRITS.
HE WAS TRAPPED IN AND JUST RELIVING DEATH OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN.
WE FORCEFULLY CROSSED HIM OVER AND SENT HIM INTO THE LIGH WHERE HE WOULD FIND PEACE.
Narrator: AND THE WOLVERTON HOUSE FOUND PEACE AS WELL.
THE NEXT DAY WAS A RELIEF.
IT WAS LIKE SOMEBODY HAD JUST LIFTED A WEIGH OFF OF OUR HOUSE.
FIRST TIME I COULD HONESTLY SAY I WAS AT PEACE AGAIN.
JUST HAPPY, NORMAL PEOPLE LIVING IN A BEAUTIFUL, NORMAL HOUSE.
WE HAD FINALLY RESOLVED THE PROBLEM.
THANK -- THANK GOD IT'S GONE.
Narrator: THE SPIRIT OF DANIEL WOLVERTON WAS NEVER HEARD FROM AGAIN.
SEEMS THE TROUBLED SOUL HAD FINALLY FOUND A PLACE TO REST IN PEACE.
WE MAY NEVER LEARN THE REASONS BEHIND A SPIRIT POSSESSION.
THOSE CASES CAN BE AMONG THE MOST CHILLING.
Producer: STORY NUMBER 3, FEATURING HEIDI.
Heidi: I MOVED IN 2001.
IT WAS JUST ME AND MY SON.
JAMIE WAS 8 WHEN WE MOVED IN THERE.
IT WAS A THREE-STORY AND THERE WAS AN ATTIC.
Narrator: EVERYTHING LOOKED PICTURE-PERFECT AT FIRST.
IT WAS CLOSE TO TWO WEEKS BEFORE I STARTED NOTICING STRANGE ACTIVITY.
[ THUD ] IT STARTED WITH WEIRD NOISES.
[ THUMPING ] WE WOULD HEAR THINGS UP IN THE ATTIC.
AND, AT FIRST, I THOUGHT IT MAY BE -- IT WAS JUST LIKE MICE, SO I IGNORED I BUT THEN IT BECAME LOUDER.
[ FOOTSTEPS ] WE COULD HEAR WHAT SOUNDED LIKE PHYSICAL RUNNING ACROSS THE CEILING.
WE THOUGHT SOMEONE WAS BREAKING IN.
WE THOUGHT SOMEONE WAS BREAKING IN.
Narrator: TERRIFIED BY RUMBLINGS IN THE ATTIC, HEIDI AND HER SON FEL UNDER ATTACK.
WE COULD HEAR WHAT SOUNDED LIKE PHYSICAL RUNNING.
[ FOOTSTEPS ] WHEN WE HEARD THAT, WE THOUGH SOMEONE WAS BREAKING IN.
SO WE WENT TO OUR NEIGHBORS, AND WE ASKED THEM IF THEY CAN LOOK IN THE ATTIC AND SEE IF THERE WAS SOMEONE IN THERE.
AND THEY CHECKED EVERYTHING OU AND SAID NOTHING WAS UP THERE.
THEY DIDN'T HEAR ANYTHING.
THERE'S NOTHING UP THERE.
I-I'M SURE WE HEARD SOMETHING.
Heidi: WHEN THEY CAME DOWN AND SAID THERE WAS NOTHING THERE, I WAS A LITTLE NERVOUS.
Narrator: MAYBE NO ONE WAS THERE.
BUT SOMETHING WAS MAKING THOSE NOISES.
EVERY NIGHT, ABOUT 11:00, WE WOULD HEAR THE NOISES IN THE ATTIC.
IT WOULD ALMOST BE LIKE CLOCKWORK.
[ FOOTSTEPS ] IT WOULD ALWAYS SEEM TO STAR WITH PITTER-PATTER RUNNING.
AND IT WOULD GO FROM ONE END TO THE OTHER, BACK AND FORTH.
[ FOOTSTEPS CONTINUE ] THEN IT STARTED TO SOUND LIKE NOISY FURNITURE, IT WOULD BE LIKE SCRAPING ACROSS THE CEILING.
[ WOOD SCRAPING ] Narrator: AT LEAST THE ODD INCIDENTS WERE CONFINED TO THE ATTIC.
BUT THAT, TOO, WOULD CHANGE.
THINGS STARTED BEING OUT OF PLACE.
I HAD A -- A ROLL OF THESE WAX CANDLE APPLES.
AND I'D COME HOME FROM WORK AND ONE APPLE WOULD BE LIT, SITTING PERFECTLY IN THE MIDDLE OF THE KITCHEN FLOOR OR IT WOULD BE, LIKE, YOU KNOW, OFF TO THE SIDE BY THE CLOSET.
I INSTANTLY FELT FEAR.
IT WAS GOING ON EVERY SINGLE DAY.
THERE WAS NOT A DAY THA SOMETHING DID NOT HAPPEN.
Narrator: HEIDI'S INITIAL ANXIETY GAVE WAY TO TRUE FEAR.
I -- I WAS SCARED AT THAT POINT.
I COULD NOT SLEEP AT NIGHT.
MY SON STARTED HAVING NIGHT TERRORS.
HE WAS GETTING SCARED TO SLEEP IN HIS ROOM.
Narrator: THEY TOOK STEPS TO TRY TO FEEL SAFER.
HEIDI MADE SURE HER SON WAS ALWAYS AT HER SIDE.
WHEN WE WENT TO BED, WE WOULD SLEEP WITH OUR BEDROOM DOORS SHU AND WE'D KEEP THE TV ON ALL NIGHT LONG.
WHILE THE CRIME RATE IN THIS COUNTRY HAS DECLINED FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 15 YEARS Narrator: BUT MORNING BROUGHT NEW EVIDENCE WHATEVER WAS HAUNTING THEM HAD A NASTY SIDE.
OHH.
I WOULD WAKE UP WITH THESE BRUISES HERE.
SOMETIMES I'D HAVE SCRATCHES ON MY NECK.
SOMETIMES I WOULD GE ODD BRUISING ON MY LEGS.
IT WOULD HAPPEN, I WOULD SAY, AT LEAST ONCE A WEEK.
THE BRUISING SCARED ME, BECAUSE I DIDN'T KNOW IF SOMETHING WAS PHYSICALLY GONNA HURT MY SON, TOO.
I FELT THREATENED, AND I WAS SCARED.
Narrator: HEIDI CALLED HER LANDLORD TO EXPLAIN WHAT WAS HAPPENING.
DO YOU KNOW IF ANYONE PASSED AWAY HERE? Narrator: HE HAD STARTLING NEWS FOR HER.
MY LANDLORD SAID THAT THE PREVIOUS OWNER OF THE BUILDING HAD DIED IN THE ATTIC.
AND WHEN HE HAD SAID THAT, THESE THREE LOUD BANGS RIGHT OVER US -- BOOM, BOOM, BOOM -- IT WAS LIKE SOMETHING WAS TRYING TO GET MY ATTENTION.
HELLO? I WAS SO FRIGHTENED -- I NEVER WENT INTO THE ATTIC AFTER I HEARD THOSE NOISES.
THAT WAS WHEN I STARTED TO THINK SOMETHING MORE SPIRITUAL WAS TAKING PLACE.
Narrator: AFRAID TO BE ALONE IN THIS HOUSE WITH JUST HER SON, HEIDI WAS RELIEVED TO FIND A ROOMMATE.
MY NEIGHBOR HAD MENTIONED TO ME THAT HER BOYFRIEND'S FRIEND NEEDED A PLACE TO STAY.
WOULD I BE INTERESTED IN RENTING OUT THE ATTIC? AND I SAID, "I WOULDN'T MIND, BUT I DON'T KNOW IF HE WOULD MIND THE GHOSTS.
" SHE EXPLAINED TO ME THINGS THAT HAD HAPPENED IN THE PAST.
AND I DIDN'T BELIEVE IT WHATSOEVER.
IT'S YOUR TYPICAL MIDWESTERN ATTIC.
IT'S OLD, CREAKY, BUT, YOU KNOW, THINGS LIKE THA DIDN'T BOTHER ME THAT MUCH.
Narrator: DAVID WOULD CHANGE HIS MIND SOON ENOUGH.
Kroenke: THINGS WOULD BE MOVED, STRANGE THINGS LIKE MY PANTS WOULD BE OUT OF MY DRESSER AND STACKED ON TOP OF MY DRESSER.
IT WAS ALMOST AS IF SOMEBODY WAS CLEANING MY APARTMENT, SO TO SPEAK, WHILE I WASN'T THERE OR ARRANGING I HOW THEY WANTED IT TO BE.
THINGS WERE OUT OF PLACE.
I STARTED TO BECOME CONCERNED.
Narrator: AND THEN A FEW WEEKS LATER -- A TERRIFYING ENCOUNTER.
Kroenke: I WAS JUST CLEANING UP, MILLING AROUND MY ATTIC.
AND I HEARD A MAN'S VOICE.
A DEEP, LOW VOICE, SCREAMING AT THE TOP OF HIS LUNGS, "I'M GONNA KILL YOU.
" Man: [ Distorted ] I'M GONNA KILL YOU! I HAD A COUPLE KNIVES LAYING AROUND THAT I STILL HAD FROM THE MILITARY.
AND I JUST PICKED IT UP AND RAN DOWN THE STEPS BECAUSE I THOUGHT SOMEBODY WAS ATTACKING HEIDI.
[ SCREAM ] Narrator: AFTER HEARING VIOLENT SHOUTING IN THE HOUSE, DAVID THINKS HIS ROOMMATE IS UNDER ATTACK.
Kroenke: I HAD A COUPLE KNIVES LAYING AROUND THAT I STILL HAD FROM THE MILITARY.
AND I JUST PICKED IT UP AND RAN DOWN THE STEPS, BECAUSE I THOUGHT SOMEBODY WAS ATTACKING HEIDI.
Heidi: I COULD HEAR DAVID RUNNING DOWN THE STAIRS FROM THE ATTIC, AND HE WAS JUST IN A PANIC.
AND HE HAD A HUGE KNIFE IN HIS HAND.
AND HE SAID, "DID YOU JUST GET HOME?" AND I SAID, "YEAH.
" AND HE SAID, "ARE YOU SURE?" AND I SAID, "YES.
WHY, WHAT'S WRONG? WHY DO YOU HAVE A KNIFE IN YOUR HAND?" YOU OKAY? - UH.
AND HE'S LIKE, "YOU'RE GONNA THINK I'M CRAZY.
" RIGHT BEFORE I GOT HOME, HE HEARD WHAT SOUNDED LIKE SOMEONE BEATING ME UP.
THE SHOCKER SET IN -- THERE'S NOBODY THERE.
HE INSTANTLY FELT FEAR.
HE KNEW SOMETHING WASN'T RIGHT.
A SPIRIT IS ABLE TO MIMIC THE SOUNDS OF SOMEONE SCREAMING.
IT IS SO CLOSE THAT WE OFTEN GET CONFUSED WHEN WE HEAR IT.
THAT CAN BE A SURE-SIGN THAT THE HOUSE IS HAUNTED.
IT'S THE PRESENCE OF THAT ENTITY YOU MAY BE FEELING.
THAT'S THE POINT WHERE I STARTED TO THINK, "OH, BOY.
WHAT DID I MOVE INTO?" DAVID MOVED OU A FEW WEEKS AFTER THAT INCIDENT.
I DIDN'T WANT HIM TO MOVE.
Narrator: A SINISTER PRESENCE CONTINUED TO TORMENT HEIDI.
HER NEW BOYFRIEND SCOT WAS SKEPTICALAT FIRST.
ON OUR FIRST DATE I JUST TOLD SCOT ALL ABOUT EVERYTHING THAT WAS GOING ON, AND HE THOUGH IT WAS PRETTY INTERESTING.
I'M LIKE, "FOR ME TO BELIEVE YOU, YOU KNOW, I-I WANT TO SEE SOMETHING OR I WANT TO HEAR SOMETHING.
" Heidi: THEN I SAID, "EVERY NIGHT AT 11:00 YOU'RE GONNA STAR HEARING THINGS IN MY APARTMENT.
" AND WE REPORTED AT THE OLD FIRE HALL [ THUD ] WE HAD THE TV ON, AND WE WERE TALKING AND IT WAS AROUND 11:00.
[ THUD ] Heidi: AND ALL OF A SUDDEN HE HEARD THE NOISES.
[ THUMPING ] AND THESE NOISES ARE LOUD ENOUGH TO DROWN OUT OUR CONVERSATION AND THE TELEVISION.
WELL, IT APPEARS TO BE [ THUMPING ] 'COURSE, MY REACTION TO THIS NOISE WAS IMMEDIATE, LIKE, WELL, "WHO IS UP THERE?" [ BANGING ON DOOR ] Heidi: HE INSISTED ON GOING UP IN THE ATTIC.
I -- IT'S LIKE, I'M NOT BELIEVING ANYTHING YET, BUT THESE NOISES ARE FOR REAL.
[ WOOD SCRAPING, TAPPING ] I WENT UP THERE AND LOOKED AROUND AND IT KIND OF STARTED TO FREAK ME OUT A LITTLE BIT.
THERE'S NOTHING IN THIS ATTIC.
NOTHING -- NOTHING TO EXPLAIN THESE NOISES.
Narrator: AND WHATEVER WASN' IN THIS ATTIC, ALSO WASN'T GOING TO LET SCOTT SLEEP EASY.
WHEN HE WOULD STAY OVERNIGHT, HE WOULD HEAR BANGING ON THE ATTIC DOOR.
THE FIRST TIME THAT I TRULY GOT SCARED -- AND SOMETHING POUNDED ON THAT ATTIC DOOR AND IT WASN'T A LIGHT KNOCK.
[ POUNDING ON DOOR ] THIS WAS A HEAVY BAM, BAM, BAM.
UH, YEAH.
I-I WAS SCARED.
I JUMPED AND I RAN.
LEGITIMATELY I PRETTY MUCH LOST IT.
Narrator: NOTHING COULD HAVE PREPARED HEIDI OR SCOT FOR WHAT HAPPENED NEXT.
THERE WAS A TIME THAT I WAS STAYING OVER, AND WE HAD GONE TO SLEEP.
AND THEN HEIDI SAT UP STRAIGH IN BED, JUST SAT STRAIGHT UP.
YES.
OKAY.
AND I REMEMBER SEEING HER AND SHE WAS GOING LIKE THIS.
AND SHE WAS SPEAKING.
"YES.
OKAY.
OKAY.
YES.
OKAY.
" YES.
OKAY.
HEY.
BABE, IS EVERYTHING OKAY? YES.
OKAY.
AND THEN SHE WALKS OUT OF THE ROOM.
Narrator: WAS IT A CASE OF SLEEPWALKING OR SOMETHING ELSE? SHE GRABBED THE LIPSTICK AND WROTE SCRIPTURE ON THE MIRROR.
PSALM 9:3 -- "WHEN MY ENEMIES TURN BACK, THEY SHALL FALL AND PERISH AT MY PRESENCE.
" PUT THE LIPSTICK DOWN, WENT STRAIGHT BACK TO BED AND LAID RIGHT BACK DOWN -- RIGHT BACK INTO A DEEP SLEEP.
IT WAS VERY DISTURBING.
I'LL NEVER FORGET IT.
I DON'T HAVE ANY RECOLLECTION OF THAT AT ALL -- NOT AT ALL.
I WASN'T FAMILIAR WITH THE BIBLE, AND THE FACT THAT I DID SOMETHING LEGIT ON THE MIRROR, THAT FRIGHTENED ME.
I-I THINK THAT SOMETHING WAS TRYING TO GET CONTROL OF ME.
THAT'S WHAT REALLY SCARED ME.
WHEN A SPIRIT POSSESSES SOMEBODY THEIR ULTIMATE GOAL IS TO BECOME HUMAN AGAIN OR HUMAN-LIKE AGAIN, TO TRY AND ATTAIN THAT AWARENESS IN THE PHYSICAL WORLD, TO GET THAT ACKNOWLEDGEMEN THAT THEY STILL EXIST.
AND THEY WILL DO PRETTY MUCH ANYTHING THEY CAN TO WHOEVER THEY CAN.
AND, A LOT OF TIMES, THOSE INDIVIDUALS SUFFER IN THE END.
IT WAS JUST TOO MUCH.
IT GOT TO THE POINT WHERE EVERY TIME WE ENTERED THE HOUSE, DAYLIGHT OR NIGHTTIME, SOMETHING WAS GOING ON.
