15 Cameras (2023) Movie Script

[eerie orchestral music playing]
[heavy breathing]
[door creaks open]
[upbeat rock playing]
Tangerine, you caught me
on a good day
The roses started blooming
The fuel supply is plenty
Oh, tangerine,
is this the ending?
Forever now or maybe
The conversation empty
Tangerine, you're in my head

I sleep on your side
of the bed
[breathing heavily]
[Narrator] It was 6:00 p.m.,
the time when
an unsuspecting Nina
would get home
from her evening run.
Her boyfriend, Mark,
deceased in the next room.
[Nina] Hey, Mark,
I ran into Bailey again.
Are you still sleeping?
[narrator] The Slumlord had
been watching them for weeks,
awaiting the perfect
opportunity to strike.
[ominous music playing]
[Nina screaming]
[Nina screaming]
Are you all right?
I just keep thinking
about those poor girls.
That terrifying guy.
This is the first thing
you wanted to watch
in the new house.
A show
with real footage of people
getting murdered, kidnapped?
I don't know, you don't think
it's interesting
considering that--
I just feel like you're off
somewhere else, I'm sorry.
And then I'm just sitting here
watching you watch the screen.
That's a little unfair.
-Okay, I just-- I just--
Well, it's just
our first night staying here,
and I thought
the mood would be a little...
You know?
Sky. [chuckles]
-Never mind.
Never mind.
I'm going to bed.
Good night.
[eerie string melody playing]
[rapid clicking]
[clicking stops]
[woman on TV] Watch all
your favorite shows ad free
so you never
have to stop watching.
[thunder rumbling]
[Sky] I'm coming
to get you, one second.
-Hey! You're here!
-[Carolyn] I'm here!
And I made it to your duplex!
You guys are like
serious landlords now.
[Sky] Yeah,
it's kind of a mess.
Just throw that anywhere.
[Carolyn] Whoa, whoa, whoa.
-Sky, this place is huge.
-Yeah, we did all right.
Yeah, the pictures you sent
kind of made it look shitty.
This is just the top half of it?
Yeah, we got pretty lucky.
Lucky for you, we haven't found
renters for the bottom unit yet.
-Come on.
[Sky] If you follow me
this way,
you will see the front steps.
[Carolyn] Front door, got it.
[Sky] And the four down there,
um, bedrooms are this way.
[Carolyn] And skylight.
Skylight, very important touch.
It's really nice, Sky.
[Sky sighs]
Thank you.
For letting me crash here.
You guys
are really helping me out.
-No, I mean it,
-I mean it, you guys are.
-Of course!
I just...
[Sky] It's not even a question.
I love you guys.
Here it is. Oh, sorry.
There's so much stuff
in front of the door.
[Cam] Hey, look who's here!
Insurance lawyer
turned mediocre carpenter.
[Cam chuckling]
Hey, Carolyn, how are you?
My favorite sister in-law.
Oh, you know, I wanted to say
I'm sorry about everything.
To hear about everything,
you know, with, uh,
you know, with Gio.
Yeah, I guess, you know,
you don't--
You never know with people.
Well, at least
he doesn't know where I am.
Hopefully, it stays that way.
You're safe here with us.
Anyway, um,
we were hoping to have
all the work done by now,
but Cam had to do
his little macho thing
and finish the place himself,
so it's not done yet.
-[Sky chuckling]
-[Carolyn] Well...
it's definitely a fixer-upper.
Doesn't explain
how you got it so cheap.
Well, the right place
at the right time.
-[Sky chuckling]
-[Carolyn] What?
Someone die
in here or something?
Did someone die in here?
-Uh, no one died.
-[Carolyn] What?
-[Sky] We don't think.
-[Cam] No, nobody died.
What happened?
[Sky] Have you been
watching The Slumlord Tapes?
The landlord with
the hidden cameras and all that?
True crime thing?
No. No way!
That's how you get a place
for half the market value.
What? You guys
are fucking with me.
This is one of those houses?
Are there cameras?
-No, no.
-[Carolyn] What?
-There's no cameras.
-How do you know?
Apparently not, apparently not.
There are nothing,
seriously, okay?
They would have
told us if they found anything
in the walls or anything.
Nothing happened here.
You know,
dad's place isn't sounding
-so bad anymore.
-[Sky laughing]
There's nothing to be afraid of.
-[Carolyn] Uh-huh.
-The guy's dead.
-It was all over the news.
I cannot believe you watch
that while you're living here.
It's really good.
[Carolyn] Oh,
you guys are twisted.
[Sky] You know...
we have an hour
before dinner's ready.
[tense music playing]
[Valerie] His origin
and identity are mostly
He became a master
at hiding his cameras.
Over time, they became smaller,
more sophisticated,
harder to detect.
[Valerie] We discovered evidence
in showerheads, lightbulbs,
smoke detectors, air vents,
even toilet bowls.
Oh, fuck off, ugh.
Yeah. Disgusting.
[Valerie] He was
constantly developing.
Cameras so small they could fit
in the cavity of a wall outlet.
There was no telling
what this guy was capable of.
We swept some
properties multiple times.
There may be cameras out there
that we haven't discovered.
[Paul] It was a long time ago.
I remember Ryan told me
to go to the house...
and check out what was going on.
He was paranoid
and he kept calling me.
And there's nobody there,
I think there's nobody there.
I'm looking around,
it was silent.
It was dead silent.
The room was insulated,
completely soundproof.
And then looking back,
it's terrifying
to think that a woman
was chained up in the basement
ten feet below me.
I mean, she was right
beneath my feet,
and she was screaming
and I couldn't hear anything.
Nope, okay, you know what?
I'm gonna go take a shower.
You guys enjoy the creep show.
[Carolyn grunts in disgust]
There should
be a towel in there.
[Carolyn] Thank you.
Hope I survive.
It really sucks
that you brought Gio up to her.
-I know.
-She's having a really
tough time with all of it,
and she came here to relax
-and not think about it.
-I know, yeah.
I'm gonna go check on
the water heater
and make sure it's not doing
that click thing again.
[Paul] And I still get
shook up about that.
How can you not?
[deep ominous music playing]
[door creaking]
[switch clicking]
Where's the Slumlord
when you need him?
[clicking intensifies]
Come on.
[mysterious music building]
[mysterious music playing]
Oh, fuck.
[suspenseful music playing]
Holy shit.
[shrill, ominous music playing]
Okay, then.
There we go.
[monitor booting up]
Oh, shit.
[shower running]
Oh, my God.
What the fuck?
[muffled conversation]
[Sky] Why would people
pay for porn?
[Carolyn] Dude, I want a name.
I want a specific name,
I wanna 'em to sit right there,
I wanna have a conversation.
[Sky] I don't know. People
who want, like, good porn,
like, high quality porn.
[Carolyn] High quality
stranger sex? [chuckles]
Wait, isn't all porn
watching strangers have sex?
I'm just saying, you don't have
to put down a credit card, okay?
Just type in the weird
see everything
one can do to a butthole.
I'm serious, I've seen it all.
[Sky] I'm sure,
I'm sure you have.
[Sky laughing]
Cam, what do
you like looking at?
Huh? What?
[Sky] Cam?
Are you okay?
You're acting weird.
-No, I'm not.
-[Carolyn] Yeah, you are.
-You're acting weird, what's up?
-[Sky] Yeah, you are.
-[Carolyn] What's up?
-[Sky] Cam?
[Carolyn] Cam?
I, um...
[Carolyn and Sky laughing]
I actually, um...
I found, um...
Holy shit!
-Holy shit, did you see that?
Someone was looking
in through the window.
-Are you serious?
-[Carolyn] I swear to God.
He was just there,
he was looking in here.
There's no one there, okay?
-Can you just go check?
-Okay, all right.
Just relax.
[eerie wavering music playing]
Let's just see.
Gio, if that's you,
you better fuck off!
[dog barking in distance]
I don't know, I just think
Carol's really stressed.
Like, she's a tough person,
but I don't know, it's just...
I think the situation's
really getting to her.
[scoffs] Seeing things?
I don't know, do you think
there was really
someone at the window?
The Slumlord's dead, right?
That's not funny.
Tonight... [sighs]
I found a...
You're not gonna believe this.
I, uh...
[Sky] Jesus.
-This guy had thousands of hours
of footage stashed away on
hard drives across the country.
That is so creepy.
Real creepy.
[birds chirping]
[Carolyn] He didn't see her.
She and Gio work together, okay?
She sat at his desk, might
as well have been on his lap.
She would take advantage of him
at night when he was tired.
[Sky] I don't think
that matters.
[Carolyn] I think it does, I
think this chick is not stupid.
I think she knew
exactly what she was doing.
Anyway, just...
Hey, Cam.
I'm gonna run out and
grab some stuff for the house.
Should be back, uh,
maybe a little later.
Do you guys need anything or?
-Well, I'll see you later.
Oh, oh, I'm sorry!
I'm sorry, I didn't know...
didn't know.
[Sky] Yep.
[tense music playing]
[Sky] See you later.
Yeah, yeah.
[suspenseful music playing]
[Kayla] I'd like to take
another look at that.
Can you just give me one sec?
Uh, yeah, thank you, Kayla.
Here's the thing,
his assistant was a predator.
I mean,
she took advantage of him.
-What was he supposed to do?
-Yeah, I see it, thank you.
[Carolyn] It was unavoidable.
Are you listening to yourself?
[Carolyn] You at least
got one of the loyal ones.
Okay, yeah, fine, Cam...
made a few mistakes, I mean,
who doesn't cheat in college?
But, Gio, it's like,
he doesn't even have--
[Kayla] Carolyn?
Yes, we are confirmed
for the breast break
on Monday, Kayla, thank you.
You don't get to make Gio
the victim here.
-I'm not.
-He had every opportunity
to just walk away and say no,
but he couldn't help
his little wiener,
getting involved, making--
Little wiener?
It's just as much his fault
as it is hers.
[Kayla] Sorry, Carolyn? Carolyn?
Hold on, Kayla.
So, how was he supposed
to say no to that?
When that just
throws herself at him?
-What was he supposed to do?
-I don't know,
I guess he could act
like an adult
-with a shred of self control.
That kind of temptation
for a man, that...
That's overwhelming.
I mean, their--
their curiosity alone,
it's not even in human nature
for them to deny that.
[Sky] No, he wasn't talked
into cheating on you.
He just-- He just did it.
He wanted to do it.
When a guy jumps
at an opportunity like that,
he's the monster,
he's the bad guy.
[Carolyn] All right,
so, what's your point?
A creep is a creep.
That's it.
Bottom line.
Hey, Cindy, sorry, um,
do you have those files?
Can I get them
in one folder, please?
[eerie music playing]
[Sky] You have
one more meeting?
[Carolyn] At 1:00, yeah.
You're done at 1:00 or
you have one more meeting--
I have one more meeting,
and then I'm done
with everything.
[Sky] I'm just trying to ask
you when you're done, whatever.
[Carolyn] At 1:00.
I am done when
my last meeting ends at 1:00.
[Sky] You are so [indistinct].
Am I really,
and what are we talking about?
[eerie rhythmic melody playing]
Ah, okay.
Here we go.
-[air freshener hisses]
-[Cam shouts]
Oh, fuck.
[water splashing]
Oh, Jesus.
What the fuck am I doing?
What the fuck am I doing?
[piano melody playing]
I can't find
these girls' credit scores.
I don't even think
they've had jobs.
They probably have rich parents.
[Sky] Exactly.
And I don't know, I'm worried
about two college seniors
with no jobs trying to have
one big final blowout semester.
[Cam] You don't know that.
I mean, they seemed nice to me.
But guys?
You know, you can never tell.
They could be weirdos.
We gotta share a floor
with these people, Sky.
Everyone's a little weird.
I don't know, they don't seem
violent or anything.
[Cam chuckling]
Remember when
we were first starting out
and we couldn't find
anyone to take us
because of credit scores
and all this bullshit?
You remember how frustrating all
that stuff is when you're young?
And now we finally
have our own home.
I think we should
help these girls out.
Girls are just so safe.
Oh, my God.
You dirty old man.
Come here.
[Sky chuckles]
[groans in disgust]
[orgasmic moaning]
Oh, my...
[Sky] Yeah, that was great.
[Cam] That was amazing.
[Sky] Yeah, that was great.
[Sky] Yeah, that was great.
[Valerie] Whenever he could,
he would tack screws
into entryway doors,
which closed off escape routes.
We found a bunker
where they were kept.
Claire escaped, but she still
lives in constant fear.
That is my worst
fucking nightmare.
Being kidnapped like that.
[Valerie] Since then,
she's hired a private
Shit, she has so many followers.
[Valerie] The dark irony
is they're still
under constant surveillance.
[Sky] That poor woman.
After everything
she went through being trapped
in that bunker for years.
Can't even go buy orange juice
without people gaping at her.
When we finally caught
up with the Slumlord,
it was too late.
His van caught fire
a half mile from the border.
By the time local authorities
found the vehicle,
it was so burned out,
it was hard to decipher
the bone ash
from other materials.
In the end, there's no telling
how many properties
the Slumlord owned.
The paper trail
is indecipherable,
and with so many
people still missing,
it's anyone's guess
if there are survivors
hidden away somewhere
hoping to be discovered.
[Claire] Ryan didn't
make it out,
and it was years
before I did.
They say the Slumlord is
and that my nightmare is over,
and I hope it's just a matter
of time before I feel that way.
Before I feel like
no one's watching.
This is bullshit,
this is bullshit!
-Whoa, what's bullshit?
-After everything,
he just burns up
in his stupid van?
-I don't know.
-I mean,
we need to be sure
we live in one of his houses.
Okay, I think this
true crime stuff is, like,
made to freak people out.
If she had known more
about the Slumlord,
if she had been more prepared,
then maybe Ryan
would have survived.
Wait, who's Ryan?
Claire's husband.
Yeah, I just think I missed
some of the set up here.
-So I'm like...
-How about this?
We can start
the series from the beginning.
We can watch it all again.
This way it's, like,
fresh in your mind
and we can think about clues
and stuff together.
-[door slams]
[Sky giggles]
Honey, hi.
Um, we're starting Slumlord
again from the beginning.
Do you wanna watch?
[scoffs] No.
No, thanks.
[eerie theme music playing]
[suspenseful music playing]
[girls cheering]
[Wren] Let's do it!
Movin' in, movin' in, movin'
[Wren] Lift, lift!
Ow, ow, ow, ow!
Dude, why are the drawers
still in? It's so heavy.
It's okay, we got it,
we got it, we got it.
Okay, push, push.
Just be careful, don't slide it.
-Oh, my God.
Sorry, sorry.
You scared the shit out of me.
-[Cam] Sorry.
Can I help you guys out?
You guys look like
you're struggling.
-[girls laughing]
-Yes, please.
Let me grab
this heavy end, okay.
And you hop up top.
Sorry if I scared you.
It was like
perfect timing, thanks.
I saw you guys
struggling a mile away.
Okay, on three we're gonna lift.
-[Cam] One.
Two, three.
-Is this good here?
-Uh, yeah.
All right,
use your legs. [chuckles]
Thanks, Cam.
Never had a landlord
help me move in before.
Oh, landlord, please, think
of me like a friendly neighbor.
Or roommate, even.
We are technically
sharing a house.
But seriously,
if you guys every want to use
the backyard area
for anything, you know, to grill
or just lay out and get
some sun, mi casa, su casa.
[both giggling] Thanks.
Awesome, will do.
Where'd you guys get this couch?
I don't know, it was a
hand-me-down from my sister.
Brought it over from Texas.
Texas? That's right.
Texas, the Lone Star State.
[imitates quick draw,
gun firing]
You know?
Okay, well,
I will leave you to it.
Won't keep you all day.
Good luck settling in, y'all.
[chuckling sympathetically]
-Bye, Cam.
[phone buzzing]
[suspenseful music playing]
[Wren] Amber?
Where does the cat go?
[phone buzzing]
Can you help?
[indistinct conversation]
[indistinct conversation]
[phone beeps]
[Amber] Oh, shit!
[Wren] Are you okay?
[Amber] Yes, I'm fine.
[man] Hey, look at that,
there he is.
-Hey, Cam. Can you hear us?
-Hi. Hi, Holly.
Yeah. I'm good. I'm, um,
-what did I miss?
[Holly] We were
just getting started.
[Cam] Yeah.
[Holly] It's a little
hard to hear you.
Are you feeling okay?
No, no, I'm-- I'm-- I'm--
[man] Cam?
-I'm fine, I just...
[man] No, yeah, we still
can't hear you.
Um, you're not,
it's not clear, Cam.
-We're, um...
[Holly] We do have a lot
to go over on your end.
-[man] Cam, if you'll just--
[Holly] This doesn't seem
to be ideal conditions
-for us to meet like this.
-Huh. Right, right.
[man] Yeah, you are totally
right, Holly, I-- I agree.
I'm feeling that
maybe given the circumstances,
-we should try and reschedule.
-Yeah, well...
That would be better
for me, actually, yeah.
[man] Can we maybe say tomorrow?
-In the afternoon?
-Uh-huh. Yeah, great, great.
[Holly] I guess I can move
things around and make it work.
[man] Well, okay, okay,
we'll see everyone then.
-Okay, count me in. Thanks, bye.
-[Holly] See you then.

[muffled conversation]
[Wren] I would kill to barbeque.
A real barbeque.
[Amber] Oh, my God.
[muffled conversation]

La la la la la
La la la la la
La la la la la
La la la la la
[birds chirping]
[Sky] Hello!
[muffled laughter]
[Cam] That's what I said.
-And, uh...
-[flies buzzing]
...between us, not really sure
if I want to be a lawyer
for the rest of my life,
know what I mean?
It's all bullshit.
There's things I want to do.
There's places I want to see.
You know?
I'm not
an old man just yet.
You know,
I've never been to Paris.
Who hasn't been to Paris?
Me. [chuckles]
I haven't though.
Or Tokyo or Dallas.
-That actually a place--
-[Wren] Hey, Sky.
-Hey. Honey.
-Hey. Hey.
Hi, Sky!
[Sky] What's all this?
Uh, I grilled. [chuckles]
You what?
Yeah, I figured, you know,
hey, let's share some
with our new neighbors
and welcome them.
You know.
-You made all this?
-[Cam] Yeah.
Well, not the coleslaw.
But, yeah,
I grilled everything.
[Sky] Since when
do you grill?
I grill all the time.
[Sky] Hmm.
Yeah, I figured, you know,
I wanted to surprise you.
You know,
I figured, "Hey,
new house, new friends.
We should try
a new recipe."
-[Sky] Oh.
-[Cam] Yeah.
Um, I'm sorry,
I didn't mean to interrupt.
Uh, but enjoy and I know
you have school tomorrow,
so I'll see you later.
-Bye! Bye, Sky.
[mellow indie music playing]
[Cam scoffs]
I'm gonna grab a beer,
another beer,
and I'll grab
two more for you.
I mean, each. I mean, one each.
Don't go anywhere.
[chuckles] We won't.
[both snickering]
Sky. [breathes heavily]
W-- what's going on?
Is everything okay?
Everything's great.
Okay, well, you know, I--
we have a lot of food,
so don't you want to come down
and just, I don't know,
get to know the girls
or anything?
-[Sky scoffs]
-Well, I mean--
[Sky] You have fun.
I don't wanna take away
from your guests' experience.
Well-- well, come, I don't know,
come hang out, at least.
I'm watching something.
[eerie music playing]
[Cam sighs]
[flies buzzing]
-[light switch clicks]
-[door closes]
"...the stalking period.
How long does it take
for a restraining order
to go through,"
question mark.
Hey, Cam.
How's it going?
[clears throat]
[Carolyn sighs]
Legal shit sucks.
Gio's an asshole
and I smoked all my cigarettes.
That's a rough day.
You know, nothing clears
my mind like a hot shower.
Night, Cam.
Don't work too hard.
[footsteps fading]
[Carolyn groans]
[Carolyn sniffling]
[Carolyn sighs]
-...talking about?
-Okay, sorry.
[Carolyn] I'm talking
about how our economy
has completely gone down
since we stopped having
our money attached to gold.
Did you ever read that--
[Cam sighs]
[eerie music playing]
[music crescendoing]
[Wren sighs]
[ominous music playing]
[engine whirring]
[cars passing by]
[door closes]
[footsteps approaching]
Do you know the Slumlord
would sometimes
go months watching people?
Inside their homes...
Seeing what
they were really like, just...
observing them.
Hey, Cam?
When are you gonna cook
dinner for me, you big chef?
I can cook you something.
Oh, yeah?
It's gonna have to be better
than barbecue though.
-[fingers drumming on wall]
Just you and me?
[door closes]
Yeah, Ryan and I were
best friends growing up
and so I had kn--
known him for 20 years.
And then
after he was murdered,
you try
to only think about
the nice things
that somebody does.
But Ryan
was a complicated guy.
And even after a little
while of being in that house,
I mean,
something was changing in him.
I don't know,
I think, um,
I think
that house changed him.
He was doing things
that I--
I never would have thought
he was capable of.
He was a different guy.
[door creaks open]
[Wren] I don't know.
He's just kind of boring.
[Wren speaks indistinctly]
[Wren chuckles]
So I'm getting used to that.
You know, he's, like, um,
like a game developer
for Twitter
or something like that.
[Amber] Okay,
and what's the problem?
He just won't
make a move.
-[Amber groans]
-[Wren] Yeah, like last night
we were watching
some anime or whatever...
-[Amber] Mm-hmm.
-...and, like, I'm rubbing
my leg on him, like,
being so obvious, right?
And then he just
won't make a move.
He won't do anything.
[Amber scoffs]
Anime has a way
of sucking away a soul.
-I know, man.
-[Cam scoffs]
[Wren] I wish a guy
would take initiative,
-for once.
-[Amber] Mm-hmm.
Like, give me a guy
who'll just lay it all out
on the table
and be like, "Here I am."
[Wren laughing]
[indistinct conversation
on computer]
[Amber] I got you.
-[camera clicks]
-[phone dings]
[Wren chuckles]
Oh, my God.
-No. No.
-[Cam chuckles]
-[Wren] No.
-[Amber] What?
[Wren] No, that's not--
that's not real.
That can't--
that can't be real, that's
No fucking way.
That's real.
That is
a bona fide dick pic.
[Wren groans] Oh, God.
An aggressive one, too.
He really got in there.
Look at those veins.
Oh, God.
Oh, is that his dick?
[Amber] Yeah, he wears
those jeans a lot.
The veins, though.
They're, like, mangled bark
on an old tree trunk!
[Amber sighs, laughs]
[Wren] Please, okay, please,
please delete it, right now.
[Amber] Oh, my God.
He's texting you back.
-[phone keyboard tapping]
-[phone dinging]
[Amber] "I'm so sorry.
That was an accident"?
How the fuck
is that an accident?
-Give me that.
-[phone dinging]
Now what?
[Wren sighs] "It was
supposed to be for my wife.
We had a big
date night planned."
Those two sending
naughty pics?
-No chance.
-[phone dinging]
"It's our anniversary.
It's a thing we do."
-This is awful.
-[Wren laughs]
What do I-- should I--
should I say something?
I should respond, right?
It's so fucking weird.
-You have to tell her.
His wife.
-[Wren] Really?
-[Amber] Mm-hmm.
Oh, shit! Fuck!
[Wren] Kill me, kill me!
[Amber gasps]
[phone dinging]
[Wren] "I'm so humiliated.
Please, please delete that.
Don't tell anyone."
Okay, fine. Yeah.
I-- I'll text him.
[sighs] Weirdest text
I've ever had to send.
[Cam sighs]
[Amber speaks indistinctly]
[Amber scoffs] "Hope you have
a good date night."
You fucking savage.
What? What?
I was trying to be nice.
It looked like
they were in for a good night.
-Ew! Honestly.
-[Wren laughs]
[Wren] It's above average.
It's an above
average dick, like, B+.
[Amber] Ew!
How many sad,
pathetic dicks have you seen
if that
looks good to you?
[Wren laughing]
-[Amber laughs]
-[Wren groans]
[Amber sighs] Ew!
Fuck it.
I need to watch something.
-[Wren chuckles]
-[Amber sighs]
[upbeat percussion
music playing]
[door lock clicks]
[footsteps approaching]
[Cam] Sky.
What is this?
[Cam scoffs]
Did you know that they never
actually confirmed his death?
Is that why we have
a doorbell camera now?
-[Cam snickers]
-[Sky sighs]
I saw a van.
You s--
I'm sorry,
you saw a van?
[Sky] A white van.
On our street.
What does that mean, a...
Slumlord drives
a white van.
No, no.
Actually, no, Sky.
-We're not doing this.
-If you look at the facts...
Let's not do this, Sky.
Come on.
-...none of this make sense.
-Oh, my God.
-If you look at the actual--
-Sky, you don't know--
-I'm sorry, sweetheart.
-It is crazy!
You don't know
the facts of the case.
-It's insane!
-Sky, I'm sorry,
you just don't know
the facts because the show--
Did you know that because
it was settled internationally,
all the records
remain public.
Yeah. Yes, I knew that, Sky.
-I'm a lawyer.
-You're an insurance lawyer.
Okay. So, what?
You're convinced
that he's alive because
you saw a van
drive down the street?
They never
confirmed with DNA.
It was all just based on,
like, clothing and stuff.
They never even
put his remains
through rigorous
reassembly analysis.
-Rigorous reassembly analysis?
-They don't know, Cam.
They don't fucking know
for sure.
Okay. All right.
So, even
if he was alive,
which, to me,
he definitely isn't,
but if he was,
why would he
come back here?
I mean, seriously. It's insane.
That would be insane.
Everyone is watching
the show.
[Cam sighs]
I don't know.
[daunting music building]
[music stops]
[eerie music playing]
[Claire] Yeah,
I always had kind of a--
a bad feeling
about him.
He would linger a little bit
too long in our conversations,
and we started noticing his van
there when we would return home.
It started slow.
We think he was just
coming around occasionally
when we weren't home.
It's strange
to see the footage.
He was always strong...
but he has
a bad right knee.
He's always walked
with a limp,
and he needed
these thick glasses to see.
It's almost impossible to
imagine what he ended up doing.
It's hard
for me to say.
He had a kind of curiosity.
That's putting it lightly, I...
He-- he had a kind of
twisted fascination
to be a spectator
into someone else's life.
Who knows what was
going through his head if he...
had no idea
it would lead to kidnapping
and killing
and all that terrible stuff...
or if it was
sinister from the start.

[toilet flushing]
-Oh, shit!
-[Amber screaming]
Hi. [chuckles]
What the hell
are you doing in here?
Sorry, I didn't realize
you were here.
-I didn't know--
-Yeah, I live here.
Right. Well, I didn't--
I didn't see your car.
-So you just walked in?
-Well, just calm down.
Calm down. Okay?
I, uh, was--
there was a problem
with my hot water upstairs
and the water heater
is down here.
So I had to come down--
You can't just come in
without telling us.
You have to give us,
like, 24 hours notice at least
-and we have to be here.
-All right.
You can't just
come in here!
Okay. All right.
You're right.
I'm sorry.
-Okay? It won't happen again.
[whispers] So stupid.
This is so fucking stupid.
I'm so fucking stupid.
What the fuck is wrong with me?
Ex-- excuse me!
Excuse me!
Hey, what the--
what the fuck?
[mysterious music playing]
[Cam scoffs]
Man, it's...
-What were you yelling about?
-Yeah, that, uh--
That was--
that was a buddy.
I thought-- I thought
it was a buddy of mine.
This is the ugliest thing
I've ever seen.
Yeah, well, you know,
Sky likes it.
You guys are doing
your scampi thing tonight?
Sky told me to fuck off, so
I figured it was kind of a date.
-We are.
[ominous music playing]
[mellow indie music playing]
[cutlery clanking]
You sure I can't help you
with anything?
No, no, no.
This is my treat, okay?
You don't touch anything
but the food with your fork.
[Sky humming along]
[pots and pans clattering]
Do you think maybe
there's a camera in there?
Sky, you're gonna
drive yourself nuts doing that.
It's almost ready.
[phone dinging]
Oh, let me
turn that off.
Let's go, detective.
You're off the clock tonight.
[music stops abruptly]
What is it?
[Sky] I got a text.
From our neighbors.
[Cam] Okay.
-Our tenants.
-[Cam] Yeah. Yes.
Are they okay, or...
You need to stop
bothering them.
[scoffs] What do you mean?
They're getting uncomfortable.
With the units? Huh.
[Sky] With you.
[Cam scoffs]
What did they say?
Nothing direct,
but she said
that you've been over there
a lot and--
[Sky] Who?
Which one?
Why does that matter?
I don't-- I'm--
I'm wondering
if, I don't know,
I said something to--
Cam, all your little chitchats
and your drop-ins,
they have to stop.
I'm not doing anything, Sky.
Okay? I'm just...
checking in--
I'm checking in--
Please, just be professional.
I am.
Hey, okay.
All right, I'll do better.
From now on.
Didn't realize everyone
was being so sensitive.
[Cam chuckling nervously]
Come on, scampi time.
Let's eat, huh?
Let's eat.
I'm just not
very hungry anymore.
[Cam] Sky.
Sky. Come on, Sky.
[piercing sinister
music playing]
[Valerie] He became a master
at hiding his cameras.
Over time,
they became smaller,
more sophisticated,
harder to detect.
There was no limit
to how far he would go.
[Claire] We started
noticing his van there
when we would
return home.
Yeah, I always had
kind of a--
a bad feeling about him.
He was coming by
more and more.
We figured out he was
watching us the whole time.
[door opens]
Um, uh, good morning.
[Wren clears throat]
[loud vehicle passes]
[ominous music playing]
Sky, what are you doing?

[keyboard clicking]
[Cam breathing heavily]
[record scratching]
[Cam] He knows
where the cameras are.
Oh, no.
No, no, no, no.
No, no, no, no!
[sinister music plays]
[Cam] Where did you say
you found this thing?
-In the-- in the hallway?
-[Sky] In the guest bathroom.
What else would it be?
Honestly, I think this--
this thing
could be anything.
You know,
the things I have found
rummaging around this house.
-I'm gonna call someone.
-What? Who? What? Why?
-Who are you calling? What?
-I don't know.
I'm gonna try to get in touch
with someone from the case.
I mean,
this is clearly evidence.
No, no, no, no,
that is ridiculous, sweetheart.
-I'm not being ridiculous.
-[Carolyn] He's coming.
-He is coming. I know it.
[Sky] What's going on?
It is like
getting to the point
where I'm actually
scared of him, okay?
-Who, the Slumlord?
-Carolyn, calm down.
Fuck you, Cam!
He's coming here.
-[Sky] For what?
-I don't know!
I don't know,
but-- but it's-- it's--
Look, a fucking
other one, okay?
All day, this random number
has just been texting me.
I know it's him.
"I know where you are.
No more hiding.
I'm coming." He's coming.
Well, Carolyn, what do you think
he's gonna do when he gets here?
You don't know
how he gets 'cause you only see
the charming shit, all right?
But all the other time,
he's at the gym
and his rage is,
like, exploding,
so don't look at me like that!
Okay, come over.
Maybe we can just
sit down for a second, right?
Yeah, just let's--
let's just hold on
and just sit down.
-He's not gonna stop, okay?
-[Sky] I know.
So, you just-- You don't--
[exhales sharply] So fucked!
I gotta
get out of here, okay?
I really can't be here
right now, I just--
[Sky] We'll leave
in a second, all right?
-Oh, my God. [weeping]
[tense music plays]
[Sky] We're gonna
get out of the house, okay?
-Yeah? All right?
-Yeah, let's-- let's do that.
-Okay? Okay.
-[Sky] Okay.
-We're gonna go to dinner.
Cam, can you get
the keys, please?
[Cam mumbling]
Okay, okay.
[Sky sighs]
Come on, let's go.
[sinister music plays]
[engine starts]
[crickets chirping]
[camera distorts]
[engine rumbling]
[engine stops]
[car door slams]
[quiet grunting]
Hey, Carolyn!
Hey! I can't
fucking believe this, man.
When I knock on your door,
you better fucking be there.
Fucking bitch!
I know you're in there.
Caro-- Fuck you!
Carolyn, I know you can hear me.
I can see--
What the fuck is this?
[bushes rustling]
Hey, asshole!
No, no, no!
[gravel crunching]
[daunting music plays]
[engine stops]

[Cam panting]
No! No.
Oh, fuck!
[Gio] Carolyn! Carolyn. Hey!
Fuck, Carolyn!
I just want to reach out
to you to talk!
Gio? Fucking idiot.
What are you doing?
I know you're in there.
[Cam] Oh, no.
I'm right fucking here, okay?
I'm not going--
Fuck you!
Carolyn, I know you can hear
What the fuck is this?
[camera distorts]
Shit, shit,
shit, shit, shit.
No, no, no. Fuck.
[panicked breathing]
Oh, shit. Oh, shit.
-[air freshener spits]
-[Cam grunts]
[sinister music plays]

[exhales deeply]
What are you doing with that?
I am taking
this thing to Escondido.
What's-- what's in Escondido?
That's where
the main investigation was.
I'm gonna see who I can
talk to about this thing.
Wait, wait, wait, what are you--
what are you doing?
What are you
gonna talk about?
He's alive, Cam.
I'm gonna find someone there
who actually believes me.
[Cam sighs] Sky, I...
I believe you.
You do?
I do.
I do.
Do you wanna come with me?
I wish.
I-- You know, I just have
house-- house stuff to do.
-Around the house.
-[Sky] Okay. Yeah.
That's fine.
Listen, I, uh...
[chuckles] ...I wanted
to tell you something.
I wanted to say
that I've been, um...
You can tell me.
I've been...
You know, I just wanted to say
that I'm, you know,
I'm not gonna let
anything happen to us.
[Sky sighs, chuckles]
It's-- it's crazy that
we bought this house, right?
Yeah. Yeah.
Yeah, yeah,
it is fucked up.
It's pretty fucked up.
It's fucked up.
See you later.
[door opens]
[door closes]
[car engine starts]
[suspenseful music plays]
[metal grinding]

[footsteps approaching]
This is done.
All of this is done.
Just go down and get
what you need and leave, okay?
I'm gonna destroy everything.
No evidence.
Nothing. You're safe.
I'm safe.
Nobody knows a thing.
It all goes away.
Okay. Yeah.
Just let's go down. Okay?
It's over here.
You know. You know.
Come on.
[Cam sighs] Okay.
Okay. Go ahead. Go ahead.
What? What?
No, no.
No, why?
No, no, there's no trap. Look.
Look, there's no traps, man.
There's no tricks.
I want you out of here, too.
Just be quick.
You gotta be quick, please.
[car passes by]
[Cam sighs]
Okay, okay, okay, okay.
[safe beeping]
-[keys jingling]
-[Cam] Okay.
You have what you need, yeah?
This is over now.
It's over, man.
[tense music plays]
Stop, stop, stop.
Please stop. Stop.
I'll take care of it.
I'll take care of it.
I'll get rid of her.
I promise.
Be quiet.
Stay right here. Okay?
[breathing heavily]
[Wren] Cam?
Cam? Are you in here?
Are you kidding me, Cam?
What is-- What's down there?
Wren, Wren,
it's an emergency.
We have to get you
out of here right now.
Bullshit, man, whatever
the fuck is going on down there
is weird, and honestly,
you've been creeping us out!
It's not safe, Wren, okay?
We're gonna get you
out of here right now.
Oh, stop!
I'm not going anywhere.
You've been lying to us.
Amber doesn't even
want to stay here.
I was defending you.
Okay, but we have to get out
right now, all right?
You need to tell me
what's been going on.
And who the fuck
is this guy?
-[Cam] No, no, no! Wait! Wait!
-[Wren screaming]
Stop! No!
Wren! Wren!
Stop! [Cam grunts]
[screaming] Stop!

[Sky] Carolyn, um...
she barely made it out.
When I think about that day...
and all the events
leading up to it,
I'm just glad
that he's gone.
Not terrorizing anyone new.
My husband, Cam...
We still don't know.
No one does.
All I know
is that I miss him...
and I can still feel him
watching over me.
[panting, laughing]
[muffled] Oh, thank God.
Oh, you did it, baby.
You did it, baby.
Now, come down here
and get me out of here.
Come get me out. Sky?
Sky? Sky? Sky.
Sky, come here, baby.
["je sais plus quoi te dire"
by Francesca Blanchard plays]
Sky. Sky. Sky, come get me out.
Sky, please.
Please, Sky.
