American Terror Tales 2 (2023) Movie Script

- Fuckin' A.
This will do just fine.
I tell you something, brother.
I'm gonna be sleeping good tonight.
Hey, I, I'm, I'm sorry, I-
I thought the house was vacant.
I'm just trying to get in outta the cold.
It's not Halloween yet, is it?
- Come on, you piece of shit.
- Hurry up, Sam.
Someone's going to catch us.
- Almost got it.
Just gimme another minute.
- Do you even know what you're doing, man?
- Of course I do.
I used to pick the lock
in principal Bookwater's
office all the time.
- Why'd you do that?
- Bookwater had a treasure trove
he used to lock away in his office.
That's where he kept all the cool shit
he confiscated from students.
You know, like porno mags,
MP3 players, video games.
Hell, one time I even
found a dime bag in there.
- This was a bad idea.
Why don't we go back to the bowling alley
like we originally planned,
it's not too late.
We could still make it.
- Where's your sense of adventure, Anna?
Don't you want to tell
people you spent the night
in Hell House and lived to tell about it?
- There's nothing to be afraid, babe.
There's no such thing
as ghosts or evil spirits.
- Sure. You two keep
telling yourselves that.
- Bingo.
- I can't believe we're
actually inside the Hell House.
Girls at the sorority
are totally gonna freak
when I tell 'em.
- what's so bad about this place anyway?
Why is it called Hell House?
- I keep forgetting you
aren't one of us townies.
Well, it all started back in the 1920s
when Anthon Hall moved to town
and he built this house
for he and his wife.
They were madly in love
and absolutely inseparable.
They tried to conceive
a child, but to no avail.
Out of options, Hall turned to black magic
in hopes of making his wife fertile.
Soon after she became pregnant,
everything seemed perfect.
That is until the delivery.
Hall's wife died during labor,
but not before giving birth to
a horribly deformed baby boy.
Hall was heartbroken and
spiraled into a deep depression.
He ended up suffocating
his son with a pillow
and hanging himself.
After the police arrived,
they were appalled by a shocking discovery.
As a ritual,
he gave his wife the
ability to bear a child.
He sacrificed and mutilated four infants.
Their mangled remains were
strewn about this very basement.
Pretty fucking creepy, right?
- The house stayed vacant for many years,
until a young couple from
New York bought it in the 1950s.
A few weeks later,
they were all found
dead with their throats slit.
They say the house was
cursed, possessed by evil,
supposedly was built upon
one of seven gateways to Hell.
- You guys actually believe that stuff?
- It's all just coincidence.
There isn't such thing
as ghost or evil spirits.
Then how do you explain Skull Face?
- Skull Face?
What is that?
- Skull Face was the
guy who bought the place
back in the 1980s.
He was actually the last
person to live here too.
- Why did they call him Skull Face?
- Because he wore a skull mask
every time he murdered somebody.
There was nothing supernatural about him.
He was a crazy motherfucker, though.
- There's more to the story than that.
Skull Face didn't just wear a mask.
It was a part of him.
He sewed it onto his face.
- That's disgusting.
Why did he kill people?
- Skull Face believed that every time
he took a person's life,
he gained their soul.
He would mutilate his
victims beyond recognition,
and ate parts of them.
He said it gave him
power, whatever that means.
Most of his victims had to be identified
through their dental record.
Others? Well, they were
so horribly disfigured,
They were unidentifiable.
- You guys are real
assholes, you know that?
I knew I shouldn't have
come along for this.
- Lighten up, Anna.
We're just having some fun.
- Hey let's just check this
place out and get outta here.
Then you two can brag to
everybody that you stayed here
and we won't have to hear about it anymore.
- It looks so grody in here.
- Wonderful. Grody.
- Let's get it over with.
Alright, me and Sarah are going upstairs
to check things out.
You two have fun down here.
- Be sure to keep an eye out for ghosts.
- Very funny, Sarah.
- Ew. Grody cobwebs.
- Look, sorry I dragged you here tonight.
I know it probably
wasn't the ideal date night
you were looking for.
- You just can't say no to Sam. Can you?
- Well I mean, we've been
friends since we were kids
and I know he can be a
pain in the ass sometimes.
But he means well, and besides,
he's thought about staying at this house
for as long as I can remember.
And it's just one night,
and I promise next weekend I
will take you on a proper date.
- Why do I always give in to you?
I guess as long as we get
to spend the night together,
it's not that bad.
You better take me out someplace real nice
to make it up to me though.
- I will, baby. I promise.
- Sam?
Sam, where are you?
Stop it.
Stop doing this.
I'm scared.
This isn't funny, Sam.
Sam, you're such an asshole.
Jesus Christ, Sam! You
scared the hell outta me.
- You should have saw your face.
You might wanna check your underwear.
Bathroom's right there.
- You are such a jerk.
- Sorry, sweetie.
Anyway, check what I
found in the other room.
It's fucking creepy.
- Ew. It's so grody.
Get that thing away from me.
- I'm coming to get you, Sarah!
You cut me, you asshole.
- Guess we pissed her off.
- I can't believe I even stay with him.
What a jerk.
- Come on, babe.
It was an accident.
Let me in so I can take a look at you.
- Damn it.
Sarah! Let me in so I
can take a look at you.
Let me in!
- Wait, stop.
- What?
- I don't know.
I just have this weird feeling,
like something is watching us.
My gosh.
Are you letting him get to you?
Are you that scared?
- I don't know.
- Well, there's nothing to be afraid of.
I promise.
You're gonna be fine.
We're gonna be fine.
As soon as they're done playing around
we're gonna get out and
we're gonna go bowling.
- Okay?
- All right?
You don't have to be afraid.
- Okay.
- Sarah?
Are you okay?
I didn't think it cut you that bad.
If it makes you feel better,
we can leave and go to the bowling alley.
Sarah are you all right?
Get off! Get off me!
We need to get the fuck outta here!
- Yo. What happened to your neck, man?
Where's Sarah?
- She bit me. She's like a monster!
We need to leave!
- What you talking about?
She's still upstairs?
- Yes but she's fucking crazy!
- Wait here with Anna.
I'll go check on her.
- Are you sure that's a good idea?
He's pretty freaked out.
Maybe there is something wrong with her.
I don't want you to get hurt.
- We gotta leave!
We can't stay here!
- Look, just calm down and stay here.
Anna, look out for him.
- Be careful and hurry up!
- Sarah?
What was all
that noise, are you okay?
- Help me grab Sam, we're leaving.
- Where's Sarah?
- She attacked me.
- What do you mean she attacked you?
- She's possessed or something.
I don't know.
Whatever that thing is upstairs,
it's definitely not Sarah anymore.
- I'm calling the cops.
I don't have a signal.
Try your phone.
- Mine's off.
- The house doesn't want us to leave.
It won't let us!
- Sam, no!
Fuck you!
Fuck you!
I loved you, man.
You're not Anna.
Go fuck yourself.
- So here we are.
- Wow.
- This is amazing.
- This is good.
- Here, let me show
you the rest of the house.
- Come on.
- It's beautiful, isn't it?
- It is.
- Gorgeous.
- I really like it.
Put the herb garden right there.
- Right there.
- I know how much you love that.
- Well, this would be your living room.
- Okay.
- And the view is, well,
take a look for yourselves.
Golf course.
- Do you play?
- No, but we can start.
Here, let me show
you the master suite.
- Here's your master.
- Wow. I love it.
Mia is gonna love it too.
Okay. This is too good to be true.
So I gotta ask, what's the catch?
I mean, there's always something.
- Well, the house does need
to be sold as soon as possible.
It's been on the market
for about half a year
and it does have a bit of a past.
- What kind of a past?
I'm sure you've heard the story
where it involved an
incident with a group of friends
that got butchered at a
haunted attraction in Texas.
- Yeah, I think I do remember that.
There were two survivors, well, one-
then the other, the famous one-
the writer killed herself
a few months back.
Wait, that was this house?
I heard a story about this
house that a couple gone missing.
No. That was just a story.
And the writer, she didn't
die in, in the actual house.
- I am in love with this house.
There are fig trees outside,
and lemon trees and
hummingbirds and it's so green.
- Wait, what's a fig tree?
- It's like a fruit.
I, I want this one.
You really want it?
- We'll take it.
- Yes!
- Great, great.
- I got you some water.
Thank you.
- You're welcome.
I can't believe this is our home.
- Yeah, it wouldn't have been possible
if we hadn't landed Carson.
- You're doing really good with that.
- Thank you.
- You know,
after you told me about
that girl that killed herself,
I wasn't scared.
I was more sad.
I mean, what gets into your
head to just wanna end it all?
- I don't know, but like, the realtor said,
there's nothing to worry about.
Plus she didn't even do it in the house.
- What about those two
guys that went missing?
- Baby.
- What?
- It's just a story.
- How do you know that?
- The couple probably couldn't
afford this place anymore
and decided to leave?
- Well, now it's ours.
- Yes it is.
How about we go break in the new bed?
- Let's go play.
Baby. My God.
- Really?
Scott? Jesus.
- Sorry. I heard you get up.
What's that?
- I just found it in here.
- It's cute.
Looks like your brother.
- It's hideous and no, it doesn't.
I don't want this in the house.
Can you get rid of it?
- Yeah.
- Thank you.
- Yeah.
Okay. Thank
you so much for coming.
Hey, later on, we'll go for some beers.
Alright see you later.
- Scott, that is not funny.
- What?
- I thought I told you to trash this thing.
- I did.
- Whatever. I'll trash it.
Mia, calm down.
- Mia! Mia!
It's me. It's me.
What? What happened?
- There was a-
- What?
What did you see?
What happened?
- I was-
- Come on.
- I was cutting.
- Talk to me. What happened?
- What is it?
- We lost the Carson case today.
- What? What happened?
- I don't wanna talk about it.
- What are we going to do?
- I don't know.
- Everything will be okay.
Can you grab the light?
What are you doing?
I closed the case.
You've screwed everything up.
I'm here enjoying my life with my wife,
and you're telling me suddenly we're broke?
Are you kidding me?
I closed it!
- Scott?
- I'll be right out baby, okay?
- Okay. I'm gonna make some coffee.
What happened!?
What did you do?
What do you want!?
What do you want!?
What do you want?
What do you want?
