Find Me (2014) Movie Script

Em, You okay?
Yeah. Yeah.
I was just having
a weird dream.
We're almost there.
What is that?
That, right there.
You don't see that?
No, see what?
That's our house, baby.
I'm your dork.
Welcome home.
Jules get over here.
I'm sorry about that,
he's harmless, he just
likes to meet everyone.
What a good dog.
Uh, I'm Paul.
I live down the street,
and, uh, this guy is Jules.
Hey, Mr. Jules
It's nice to meet you Paul.
I'm Tim,
and this lovely lady
is my wife, Emily.
Well, it's good to meet you.
Nice to see someone moving back
in this house again.
It's been empty way too long.
Well, um, if you need anything,
I live just down the street
like I said, Paul, Jules.
It's nice to meet you guys.
Good to meet you.
Nice to meet you.
Bye Jules.
It's perfect.
I love you.
I love you.
Little musty.
I think we're going
to like it here.
It's quiet,
it's secluded.
What's not to like?
Welcome to home ownership.
What? It's perfect.
I'll call a repair guy
Is that a thing,
a window handyman?
Yeah, I'm sure
there are plenty
of window repair companies
in town...
Oh I wish our couch was here.
I know, tomorrow.
Tonight, box couches.
What do you think?
Pizza, champagne, movie?
I like the way you think, lady.
You want me to go with you?
No, you stay here relax
or finish unpacking
I'll be back in a second.
I'll do my best.
Oh my god!
Yes. Hi.
Why is everyone trying
to scare me today?
I don't know,
because it's fun.
What are you doing here?
I told you I'd come by
as soon as you got here.
Um, shortage of lamps?
Oh, yeah, sorry.
We haven't really
finished unpacking yet,
and the rest of the stuff
is coming tomorrow.
Gotcha. Where's Tom?
Oh, god. Tim.
Where's Tim?
I want to meet this guy.
Oh, he just ran out to get
champagne, he'll be back.
Oh, well, I won't stay long.
I'll let you guys celebrate
I just wanted to see you.
It's been so long.
Well, you look great.
You too.
Married life looks like
it's going well for you.
Thanks. I'm still sorry I
missed the wedding by the way.
Oh, shut-up.
You know it's fine.
Little bit of
a fixer upper here?
Little bit.
So, okay, now tell me,
why couldn't Tim teach
at the school here,
cause isn't it like
30 minutes closer?
Yeah, but they're not the ones
that offered him a job
and a raise.
And uh, I don't know
he doesn't mind the commute,
and this place was just
too cheap to pass up on.
Speaking of which,
could I get a tour?
Oh, yeah, of course,
of course, uh.
So this is the living room,
we're right now going for
a "no curtains, no lights" look.
It's working.
This is the kitchen.
This place is kind of huge,
how did you guys find it.
We were actually looking
at a place down the street,
and I saw this and I kind of
fell in love with it.
It was kind of weird
because it wasn't
actually on the market.
Wait it wasn't for sale
or anything?
It had been empty for a while
but no one really wanted it,
and we put in an offer,
a really low offer,
and they took it.
Oh. Lucky you, I guess.
Yeah, right?
You want to see the rest of it?
So this is the main bedroom,
the other one is a little
smaller so we're going to do
like an office slash
guest room thing with it.
Is someone standing out there?
Just come look,
it looks like
someone's standing
right there.
Should I turn the light off
so we can see better?
Sure, let's make this more
terrifying than it already is.
It's not moving.
It may just be something
in the yard.
Did you go out there?
Yeah, earlier,
but I don't think
I saw anything.
Why are we whispering?
I'm just taking your lead.
I'm home.
It's Tim.
Hey, you scared us.
You refer to yourself
as us now?
No, jerk, Claire is here.
Oh, hey, I've heard
so much about you.
Same for you,
and I want you to know
that I already like you
since you managed
to convince Emily
to move back home finally.
Dragged her kicking
and screaming is more like it.
That is not true.
I'd just been gone for so long
it didn't really feel
like home anymore.
So we think we just saw someone
standing in the backyard.
Will you look and tell us
if we are being crazy?
What, when?
Just now in the bedroom.
You'll see it.
I don't see anything,
I see dark.
Well there was definitely
something there, we think.
Well, it's gone now.
So dinner this week?
Yeah, sounds good.
Well, it was great
to kind of meet you Tim.
Stop it. Bye.
Bye, we'll see you soon.
You guys have fun.
She seems nice.
Better be,
my high school bestie.
So I got you two bottles
of champagne
if you are feeling adventurous,
plus some candy and snacks
if the pizza sucks.
Sounds good.
I'll find the flutes tomorrow.
our first night in a new home
and to your homecoming.
And to your new job
and to us.
Is it weird being back?
Not yet.
My old place was
a few blocks away,
and we didn't play
over here very much.
The royal "we" again?
Just the other kids and I.
Tomorrow I'm going to unpack,
get organized,
try to settle in a little,
start the job hunt
next week.
Sounds good.
I hate you.
Morning. Hey, we're from
Young Services moving,
We've got all your gear here.
Oh, yeah, yeah, come on in.
couches right in here?
Yeah, I'll get this stuff
out of your way.
All right, let me know
if you need anything.
All right sounds good.
That's, ah, should be
the last of it.
Your car's off the trailer.
It's in the driveway.
You need anything else?
No, no that's great, thank you so much.
Oh thank you very much.
You guys have a good day.
All right, thanks a lot.
You think he's going
to believe you?
I don't know
why he wouldn't.
Yeah I don't know,
cause in the movies,
when the wife tells the husband
that the house is haunted,
he always says
it's, like, stress
or she's crazy
or something like that.
Uh, Tim believes in ghosts
way more than I do,
I think he'd actually love it
if the house was haunted.
He watches all of those, like,
ghost-hunting night vision shows
just hoping to see something...
Do you think it is just stress?
No, I would be really
freaked out too
if my house started
breaking stuff
and my reflection
stopped reflecting me,
even if I was drunk.
I think I'll wait a couple days
to tell him anyway.
Why wait to tell him?
I don't know. I mean,
he just started a new job,
and we just bought
our fist house,
he's kind of got
a lot going on.
It could just be the house
settling right?
That's a thing.
Yeah. That happens
all the time on House Hunters.
You get ghosts.
We have a ghost.
You do have a ghost.
I think tonight,
I'm going to try the whole
"hanging up clothes" thing.
Sounds like a novel idea.
How did you sleep?
Bad dreams.
Take a nap today.
I want to get all of those boxes
out of the living room first.
Don't kill yourself,
there's no rush.
Oh I am going to go to
the grocery store today.
You want to text me a list?
I'm late.
I love you.
I love you.
Eleven-year-old Gray Spidell
wrote a letter asking him
to grow a beard and he did...
Could you guys
turn to page 60
and start reading
to yourselves?
Hey, is everything okay?
Do you have a few minutes
to talk?
Yeah, yeah this class
is done in 10 for lunch.
What's going on?
I'm just, I'm a little spooked.
Well, just hang out here,
I'll be done in
a couple of minutes.
What do you think it means?
I don't know.
Some kind of a prank?
I've been seeing something
in the house lately.
What do you mean?
I don't know, uh,
I thought it was shadows
or something but...
I don't know, someone.
Someone like a home intruder,
or someone like a ghost?
I don't think
it's a home intruder.
It's like a woman or a girl,
and then I turn the lights on
and it's gone.
That's why I thought it was
just shadows, but now this.
What does it look like?
Like me, kind of.
I guess that's
a little less creepy
than twins that want
to "Play with me forever".
Tim this is serious.
Someone was in our house.
So whether it was a ghost
or a home intruder or whatever,
we have to do something right?
Did you have any enemies
growing up here?
You think this is
a childhood grudge?
I don't know.
Did anyone have a childhood
grudge against you?
No, I don't think so.
I wasn't very popular,
I kind of kept to myself.
Maybe this is someone's idea
of a bad joke.
Doesn't feel like a joke.
You guys should
just get out of there.
Well, where are we going to go?
I mean the house was cheap,
but we still sunk all
of our money into it.
You want us to stay with you
in your studio apartment?
Uh, on second thought,
I think you'll be okay.
I know... All right
I'm going to call you later.
Cool, let me know.
Okay bye.
So I put it in the cupboard.
And nothing else happened?
Not a peep.
So I guess we are in agreement,
we've got a ghost?
Yeah, I don't know
what else it could be.
Do you think we have
a good ghost or a bad ghost?
Doesn't seem very friendly.
Do you think it's trying
to tell you something?
I don't know.
Maybe I'm just being crazy
and it's nothing.
It is crazy,
and it is nothing, you know?
I've got you a therapist
appointment set up for you.
Yeah, maybe this
is just a gypsy curse.
Maybe the house is built on
an indian burial ground.
"You son of a bitch,
you moved the headstones,
but not the bodies!"
What do you want to do?
I don't know.
Burn sage?
Creepy town psychic?
Is there a creepy town psychic?
I don't think so.
Okay, this is what
we're going to do.
I'm going to draw you a bath,
and we are going to relax
and sleep on it
and talk about it
in the morning.
Wait, why would you
draw me a bath?
You're the horror movie fan.
You know what happens to girls in baths.
We're way smarter
than those people.
The bath help?
I'm gonna get some water.
Do you want anything?
How did you get ahead of me?
You are right about a bath helping.
Did you just get out
of the bath?
I just saw the fucking ghost.
So it just
got into bed with him?
That's what he said.
What did he do?
I don't know.
He's really freaked out.
He won't even talk about it.
that's closer than you've ever been to it.
You want to get out of there,
go shopping or something?
No, I'm okay.
You sure?
Yeah. I have some errands
to run anyway.
I'm still coming over later though.
Yeah, yeah.
Come find me.
Where am I?
Hey, baby. You okay?
Yeah, yeah, I just got home.
Did you hear that?
Hear what?
Like a scratching.
I hope we don't have
a ghost and a mouse.
Do we have an attic.
That sounded like
it came from the closet.
This is crazy, we shouldn't
investigate something
that's obviously
fucking with us.
I know, baby,
but we talked about it.
It's not a police matter, so...
we either learn to live with it,
figure out how to get rid of it,
or move.
So what do we do
if we do find it?
Are we going to corner it,
talk to it?
We could ask it
what it wants.
I think we know
what it wants,
since it tried to climb
in bed with you.
It also wants your music box,
plus maybe it just
likes to break things.
Oh, it's Claire.
Okay, so I think I might
be able to help.
What do you mean?
We're going to talk to it,
I'll do it.
You don't think we should bring
in like a professional for that?
Why I googled it,
it looks super easy.
Besides I don't have
anything else to do tonight.
Okay, what do we need
to get to prepare?
Fuck, Ow.
You okay?
Yeah I just burned myself
on the candle.
Should we turn off the lights?
Um, yes?
Are you okay?
Good to go.
Place candles around the bowl
in a circle.
I think we have everything.
Okay. Are we ready?
Yeah, let's do it.
So we all hold hands.
And close your eyes.
We call upon the spirit
inhabiting this house
to come forward
and communicate with us.
We call upon the spirit
inhabiting this house
to come forward
and communicate with us.
We mean you no harm
and only wish
to communicate peacefully.
If you can hear me,
make your presence known.
Spirit, if you can hear me,
make your presence known.
I don't think it's working.
Shhh, keep your eyes closed.
Spirit, if you cannot
show yourself to us,
give us a sign
that you're here.
Why is your phone on?
Sorry, that's me.
I'll call them back, sorry.
Let's keep going, I have this
other thing I could try.
Hey, if you're here
come talk to us!
I don't know,
I thought it was worth a shot,
maybe you weren't doing it
loud enough or something.
I'll google some more stuff
at home tomorrow,
maybe we can try again?
Can we turn the lights on now?
So tomorrow we pick this back up
and see what we can do?
Yeah, fine. Maybe we can...
burn incense or put up
a crucifix or something.
Thank you.
Bye. Goodnight.
So what now?
What do you mean?
I mean, what do we do next?
I think we should
watch a movie,
go to bed and pretend that
none of this is happening.
Hey, Tim. Tim.
Do you hear that?
Do I hear what?
Yeah, it sounds like the faucet,
Do you want me to go check?
Yeah I'll go with you.
Did you leave this light on.
I don't think so.
Em, Emily, Emily! Emily!
What's wrong?
What's wrong?
I had a nightmare.
You're safe, it's okay.
You're safe.
You're safe, you're safe.
It's okay.
Find me, Emmy.
Jesus! I'm sorry!
I knocked and you didn't answer.
Oh my god.
I'll be right out okay. Okay.
Hey, I'm so sorry about
just letting myself in.
Look at this.
Find me?
Written on the mirror
while I was in the shower.
I assume it wasn't you.
What does it mean?
I don't know, but this
is getting really fucked up.
Okay, um...
"Find me."
Maybe it needs our help.
Hang on, I'm going
to text this to Tim.
Okay. Well, I brought
some stuff too.
Sage, protection crystals.
It's probably all bullshit,
but the guy at the new age place
swore it would work.
So the sage goes around,
and the crystals by the windows.
Let's do it.
It's going to be okay.
Okay, this whole place
is officially saged.
I put all the crystals,
where the book said to.
Oh, here.
did you look at the full size
of the picture
you sent me?
What do you mean?
Did you see what's
in the background?
The find me thing? I mean,
I saw it on my phone. Why?
you need to look at it on your computer.
I emailed it to you.
Okay, I'm going to put you
on speaker, hang on.
What's up?
He wants us to look
at something.
It looks the same to me.
Look at the mirror
reflection behind the words.
Right there.
That, That's definitely her.
Okay, so now what do we do?
I think we should look for it.
Hey, you're taller than me,
can you see
if you can reach this?
Em, come here,
check this out.
Hey. Hey.
Were you just in the other bedroom?
Oh, yeah. A few minutes ago, I was.
No, like 10 seconds ago.
No, I was here,
but did you see this already?
For real?
Oh god.
Hang on do you have
that flashlight?
Here it is.
Well that's super creepy.
Are you claustrophobic?
You know I am.
You can go down there,
I've got your back.
Oh, I'm not going
to go down there.
Do you see anything?
Cobwebs and stuff.
Oh, hang...
hang on I feel something.
What is that?
It's pictures.
I can't believe
that was down there.
You have to call Tim.
Okay, let's open it up.
Oh my god.
Em, this is you.
Oh, yeah.
And this is Melissa, remember her?
Do you remember
who used to live here?
Wasn't it that guy,
yeah, the guy that used
to give us apples for Halloween,
remember him?
He always seemed weird,
but not like this.
Do you know what happened
to him after I left?
No, I never kept track of him.
He just always lived here
and then,
you know, one day
the house was up for sale,
and then it wasn't apparently,
and then you guys moved in.
Do we think the ghost
is in one of these photos?
"Find me."
Yeah, maybe.
Okay, so we track down
who all these people are,
see what they're doing now?
I guess.
It should be pretty easy,
because I...
think we knew
almost all of them.
Oh, here's another one.
Alive and well,
and apparently living in
the Virgin Islands...
Definitely not
haunting us though.
Okay, that..
Should be all of us then,
Pretty much.
Hey, guys.
What are you doing?
We found these
in the crawl space.
Is that you?
How old were you
in this photo?
Maybe five or six.
And you found these
in this house?
Do you know who
used to live here?
Not really,
I mean we remember that
he gave apples for Halloween
and wasn't very nice.
Um, do you know who
these other girls are?
Well, yeah. We found
almost all of them online,
they're fine.
Well, I guess
the next order of business
is to find out
who apple guy was.
I'll check at the school
tomorrow, okay?
This is really weird.
Well, I think now that
you are in good hands,
I probably should get going.
I have, like, a ton of work
to catch up on.
Thank you so much
for your help again.
Oh, sorry.
I'll text you later okay?
Okay, bye.
How did you find
the crawl space?
Claire found it.
She noticed that
the carpet was a little off
in the closet.
Did you look anywhere else?
Yeah we were here
all afternoon.
We just looked everywhere,
trying to find clues
or something.
What did you check out?
Um, well we didn't go down
into the crawl space.
And, uh...
Well, there's like
an attic thing maybe
in the small bedroom,
but I couldn't reach it.
I'm going to get changed,
and, uh, I'll go look in
the crawl space first, okay?
Okay, thank you.
Hey, Italian delivery
is on its way.
Look what I found
in the crawl space.
Emily, what's wrong?
I used to have something
just like this.
I guess everyone did.
Who had the other half
of yours, was it Claire?
Her name was Annah.
You never mentioned
an Annah before.
I never mentioned Annah
to anyone.
She was my sister.
Emily, Emily come and play hide
and go seek with us.
Leave me alone.
I used to say I was
the older sister
since I came out first.
You were twins?
Come on.
One time, when we were six,
she wanted to play
hide and seek.
So I said fine,
go hide somewhere
where I'll never find you.
It was hours before our parents
realized that she was gone.
They found her body
a few months later
in a creek
about an hour away.
Are you sure it's not her?
I mean, "Find me,"
"You're it," it fits.
She was a little kid.
What we're seeing
is a grown woman.
It's a hell of a coincidence,
she looks just like you.
Except 20 years older than
she's supposed to be.
I never told anyone.
Claire doesn't even know.
She moved here a few years
after it happened.
It's your turn.
Tim, Tim, Tim, Tim!
She's here! She's here!
She's... What?
She was here.
So no matter what happens today,
you're not coming back here, right?
No, I'm going to call Claire and
have her meet me at the bookstore.
Good. When I'm at school
I'm going to do some research.
See what I can find.
Come on.
So, how you two liking
the neighborhood?
Hey Paul,
the neighborhood's fine.
Do you know who used
to live here?
Well lot's of people
over the decades.
Uh, a couple of years ago,
a young fella moved in.
Uh, a day later,
he moved out.
You know, never got
to talk to that one.
Do you know why he left?
Got me.
A few months before that,
a couple moved in.
They lasted about a week.
Nice folks.
They had a son off at college.
Do you know why they left?
Got me, I think, one day,
they just packed their bags
and off they went.
You know, I grew up
not far from here.
I remember an older man
living here.
Oh, you mean Johnson.
Maybe yeah.
Yeah, I mean he was here
when I moved in
15 years ago, so.
Do you know where he is now?
He passed away
three years ago.
I don't know, he kept to himself,
but, uh, he was looking
pretty bad near the end.
Cancer, I assume.
Did you ever see
anything unusual?
Are you okay,
is something going on here?
Yeah I don't know,
we're having some issues
with the house.
Hey, Liz.
Uh, do you guys carry
any local newspapers on file?
I can't find any digital copies
before 2000.
What year are you looking for?
Hold on, let me check.
It shouldn't be.
Johnson put a lot of work
into it before he passed away.
Plumbing, fresh paint,
the works.
I mean he had workers coming out
of there every other day,
and near the end
of his passing,
he was hammering away
every night.
Jules hated it.
Hey, hey, we need to talk.
I was digging through
a couple of databases,
and I found some
pretty messed up stuff.
Well I'll start with the guy
who used to live in the house.
He died a couple of years ago
from cancer.
He got in trouble for hanging
out around elementary schools,
and when he was young,
he had a couple of misdemeanors
for cruelty to animals.
And then when I was looking up
stuff about the house,
I found a couple
of blueprints.
And it's really,
really strange,
there's a room leading
from the living room.
The closet by the front door.
Em, there's more.
I don't know if the body
they found was Annah.
What are you talking about?
I was digging up what I could
about the case,
and I guess there were
a couple of other girls
that went missing around
the same time.
But they found her body.
We had a funeral.
I know, but they never
identified the body.
It was just assumed it was her
from circumstantial evidence,
but unfortunately,
that evidence matches
a couple of the other girls too.
But if that wasn't Annah,
then where is she?
I don't know, baby.
My parents died,
thinking that they buried
one of their daughters
and now you're telling me that
she might be alive somewhere?
I gotta go.
What are you going to do?
Nothing. I just need to think.
Are you still
at the bookstore?
No, no. I'm home.
You're still at the house!?
Yeah, I just got caught up
doing some stuff.
Ah, Emily, I gotta
get you out of there.
Just wait outside for me,
put on a coat or something.
I'm leaving right now.
Find me, Emily.
I don't know where I am.
Come play with me.
You did this to me, Emmy.
I want to play.
You did this.
You did this to me, Emmy.
Emily, come find me,
I waited for you.
It's your turn.
Stop it, stop it, stop it.
Find me.
Come find me, Emmy.
Go hide, Emmy.
Your fault.
You did this.
You did this to me, Emmy.
I'm sorry.
Your turn to hide.
Em, I'm coming in.
Oh, god. Oh, god.
Oh god.
Em, are you here?
Get off of me!
Emily, where are you?
Help me! I'm in the bathroom.
Emily, please!
You have to come get me.
Help me. I'm locked in.
Come on. Fuck!
I waited for you.
Oh, my god.
Oh, god.
You did this!
You did this to me, Emmy!
It's your turn to hide!
I waited for you!
Go hide, Emmy.
I found you.
Your fault.
Let's get out of here.
I gotcha.
