[Woman] There once
was a girl called Maude.
Who picked up a
strange creature.
And brought it to her home.
(thunder rumbling)
(ominous music)
(thudding) (TV static)
(indistinct) of the
rural cathedral city
of Hereford which
shattered this morning.
(ominous music resumes)
Upon the discovery
late last night
of several dismembered bodies.
(ominous music resumes)
Local police believe
we may be dealing
with Hereford's
first serial killer.

Do you want to drive?
No thanks.
(door shuts)
(engine revs)
(distant chatter)
[Ken] Oh, too much light.
What are you doing?
I don't remember.
Being so much noise around here.
Not in the morning.
[Ken] Come to bed.
What is it?
(gentle music)
[Ken] Nightmares again?
Just thinking about
things, that's all.
[Ken] You think too much.
(gentle music resumes)
(eerie music)
(ominous rumbling)
(heavy panting)
(engine rumbling)
(gentle music)
Is everything alright?
You seem a bit embarrassed
about something.
Nope, not me.
What was that about?
Counting on me reading your mind
with my super powers?
What is it?
We've been given a
month's notice to quit.
(car stops)
We're being evicted?
My God, is it
because I complained
about the stair
carpet, isn't it?
It's got to be.
It's too much of a coincidence.
It's thread bare.
- I know.
One complaint in four years,
and he goes and does this.
Jesus, Connor, we're being
evicted and you're laughing.
No, I'm not laughing at you.
It's him.
He's nuts.
He'd rather get rid of us
than buy a new stair carpet.
He's a cheapskate twat.
Okay, well, might not be
funny now, but, you know,
in the grand scheme of things.
Or not.
I'm so sick of living like this.
We should have our own place.
We'll find somewhere.
We will.
Somewhere with even
tackier carpets.
I can get on to
the letting agencies.
I'm free this afternoon.
We'll be okay.
(gentle music resumes)
(rain pattering)
Here will do.
Don't be daft,
I'll drop you off.
No, it's fine.
Don't want you doing
that to your car.
You want your mates
to take the piss.
I'll see you later.
(car horn beeping)
(tires screeching)
Love the car.
(faucet squeaking)
(water running)
(distant chattering)
I thoroughly enjoyed
the chocolate biscuits.
Every time.
Why not?
(ominous music)
There you are.
I'm so sorry.
Is everything alright?
I was gonna say, it's
probably cold by now.
(muffled speech)
No, no, it's fine, thanks.
I'm awash with tea.
Jess says I drink too
much of the stuff.
Oh, she's only
looking after you.
And your bladder.
Take care, sweetheart.
Thank you so much for
being so understanding.
Oh, well.
Been a tough couple of weeks,
what with bills, the car
needing four new tires.
It's all those bloody potholes.
Back to normal
next month, though.
And like we said, we'll
give you a bit more.
Talk about 200,
much appreciated.
- Take care.
- You too, love.
That was bizarre.

[News Reporter] The hunt
for international superstar
and south lake billionaire,
Jean Claud Miraud,
continues with a recent
(ominous music)
Sighting of him off the
north coast of France
earlier today.
It is understood he was trying
to cross the English
channel in an attempt
to evade French authorities
over his recent (indistinct)
To Hereford now,
where concerns are
growing for the welfare
of three missing persons.
Detectives released a statement
that the three were last seen
leaving the Lutt
Cinema in West Street
at approximately
11:55 pm on Saturday.
They are eager to speak
with the owner of
a black transit van
seen parked in the street
right of the disappearance.
- Hello!
God, you scared
the shit out of me.
Did Mike give you a lift?
Yeah. (water running)
How'd you get on with
letting agencies?
That bad, eh?
we'll find a solution.
We always do.
Worst case scenario,
we'll have to put you
to work on Castle Green.
I'd do it myself, but,
don't look that great in heels.
Shut up.
Quite rather fancy myself
as a bit of a pimp.
Oh, my god.
Have you called your mom lately?
You should.
I know.
I know, I'll call her
at the end of the week.
Leave it.
Okay. (gentle ominous music)
You sure about that Castle
Green thing, though?
(gentle music)
(door clicks)
Is that you, Ken?
[Ken] Of course it's me.
Who else do you think it is?
Here, darling.
(gentle music resumes)
What's up?
Just glad you're home.
Everything alright?
Just been one of those days.
[Ken] We're out of beer.
Oh, I'm sorry.
I'll get some in for tomorrow.
How was your day?
[Ken] Uh, so-so.
Still haven't finished that
flaming battle job,
cowboy installation.
Christ, you should see it.
They have massive pipes
all over the place.
Bloody nightmare.
- Sue and Jeff.
[Ken] On the cards again.
What do they want this time?
Ah, they just called in
all the way back from town.
Seemed very grateful
about something.
Water's still hot.
Why don't you jump
in the shower?
[Ken] Yeah, in a minute.
What were they so
grateful about?
Oh, nothing important.
You know what they're
like, full of themselves.
I stopped listening
after a while.
[Ken] Just as
long as they weren't
trying to squirm their way
out of paying back the cash.
What have you done?
They just asked
if they could defer
this month's payment.
They've been having
a bit of a hard time.
[Ken] Oh and you said yes.
I knew this would
happen, I knew it.
Shouldn't have lent
them four quid,
never mind four grand.
The sly bastards knew
better than to call in
when I was here.
No wonder they were grateful.
And you gave them cake.
Oh, they'll be back
on track next month.
They will be.
- Better bloody be.
You have to stop being so nice.
They ask you again,
you say no, okay?
[Ken] Remember,
that's our holiday fund.
They don't get it back in time,
it's bye bye Las Vegas,
and hello Blackpool.
I won't be happy.
Me neither.
[Ken] It's alright to say no.
Want some tea?
(gentle music resumes)
I thought takeaway
tonight, yeah?
You up for that?
[Ken] Always.
Thank god.
I love you.
[Ken] I love you, too.
Do you ever wonder
where all the time went?
[Ken] Frequently.
Nobody warns you
about that, do they?
[Ken] Nope.
Not your parents, school.
[Ken] Life, eh?
It should carry a good
until forewarning.
(ominous music)
(water dripping)
(heavy breathing)
(metal clanking)
(ominous music resumes)
[Man] Do you see
the beauty of it?
Now, do you realize
what we've done?
Look at them.
No, please.
[Man] Look at them!
(intense music)
Why are you doing this?
[Man] We will be
forever dancing.
Thank you.

[Woman On Radio] We've got
to talk about horror slightly.
Halloween eve.
So, what better day than to
turn to modern heritages most-
(chatter fades) (rumbling)
Do you want a hand?
No, tah.
I'm alright, Frank.
I'll be done shortly.
You sure about that?
Hey, you got a minute?
Yeah, come with me.
[Man On Radio] They
were later discovered
by a local group of ramblers
last Sunday afternoon.
- Get on the bus.
[Man On Radio]
Forensic investigators
are now looking to determine
the age of the remains.
And their detectives
are confident
that they are related
to the recent
disappearances in the area.
The investigation continues,
and we will report on
any further information
as it comes through.
(whimsical music)
(people clapping)
That's the way to do it.
That's the way to do it!
(audience clapping)
So you like puppet shows?
Sorry, I didn't
mean to startle you.
Fine, it's fine.
I just hate those things.
What, puppets?
(birds chirping)
(ominous rumbling)
(puppets chattering)
So you like dragons.
I don't think we're supposed
to like dragons, are we?
No, they're just misunderstood.
The bad boys of mythology.
But they're not, really.
They just want to survive.
You talk about them
as if they're real.
They are. (ominous rumbling)
They're also magical, powerful,
and as old as time.
(ominous music)
(indistinct chattering)
(intense music)
He hasn't said anything
to me or his mother,
who has actually known
him all his life.
Has he ever said anything
to you about Nashville?
I don't even know where it is.
And he doesn't like
country and western.
He said Dolly Parton
is an abomination.
(indistinct chatter)
(ominous music)
I wanted Hawaii,
and he knew that.
Is this supposed to
be a heart or a bum?
I wish he'd stop booking things
without talking to
me about it first.
Am I wrong here?
Am I being selfish?
It's not for me to say.
Hawaii is a special place,
and I've always had my-
It's just a fucking holiday.
Go or don't go, I don't care!
Sorry, I'm sorry,
I'm really sorry.
I didn't mean it.
No, you're right.
It's not important in the
grand scheme of things,
and we're very lucky.
No Ally, please, it's me.
(melancholy music)
I haven't been sleeping well.
Don't know how to explain it.
I've never felt
like this before.
It's like I'm losing myself.
Fading away, I can feel it,
and it's getting worse.
I think you're being
a bit hard on yourself.
It's only been a few months.
We all miss Ken.
And if we feel like that,
then what must you
be going through?
What do you mean?
What are you talking about?
All I'm saying is,
you need to give
yourself time to grieve.
You're bound to be forgetful.
- Stop!
Just stop.
(music resumes)
(lively music)
Where are we going, Frank?
I want to show you something.
What do you think?
Is this somewhere you
could see yourself living?
No, I don't know...
(music resumes)
Are you okay?
(music resumes)
(music fades)
I have to go.
Beth, wait.
I really need to go.
Alright, but let
me come with you.
I forgot.
I forgot that he was dead.
He isn't here anymore.
I see him, Allyson,
all the time.
As clearly as I see you now.
Last night, this morning...
Oh Beth.
Tell me I'm not losing my mind.
Oh God!
Don't be on your own.
(door slams)
(train chugging)
(door clicks)
(ominous rumbling)
(door clicks)
It's only me.
[Beth] Hello love.
This is a surprise.
Yeah, I was just down the road.
Chest and back wax.
Body builder, big baby.
He blubbed all the
way through it.
(Beth laughing)
I'll put the kettle on.
Oh I'm okay, actually.
Why don't you come
to ours for dinner?
Do you fancy a curry?
You've been talking to Ally.
She's worried about you.
What's up?
(ominous music)
- Nothing.
Just adjusting to
being on my own.
Your dad's still...
He's still a presence
in the house.
I know.
How's Connor?
Yeah, he's good.
We've been given notice
to leave the flat.
(melancholy music)
You know,
you can always move in
with me for a while.
Both of you can.
If you don't find somewhere.
Oh thanks, mom.
Something will turn
up, it always does.
We were offered a place today.
It's way out of our price range.
I'd help out, if I can.
Oh, it's cool.
We already turned it down.
(ominous music)
What's wrong?
Needs a lot of work.
Yeah, I suppose.
Do you see yourselves
living in the country?
I don't know, really.
I don't really care where it is,
as long as it's our own place.
This will be all yours one day.
Don't talk like that.
Well none of us
are here forever.
(gentle ominous music)
(keys rattling)
(indistinct whispering)
(ominous music resumes)
Set, 9:30.
Oh, bollocks.
(pounding) (clock ticking)
- How's that?
- That's good.
Oh, so is that.
- That's it.
More pressure?
- Yeah.
Oh you have some
nasty knots there.
God, I needed this.
- Oh that's it.
That's it, you're done.
Don't stop.
Sit up, I want to talk to you.
Oh, this don't sound good.
I don't know if it is.
Or at least, I think it is.
Or, it could be.
I think I may have found a way
for us to afford that house.
I told you before,
we're not offing your mom.
Would you just be
serious for one second?
This is my serious face.
Oh I'm being very serious.
I'm listening, tell me.
Okay, you might not like it.
But hear me out. (gentle music)
(door slams)
[Ken] Sweet dreams, eh love?
Ken, do you believe
in the coincidence
between dreams and reality?
[Ken] No.
I only ever used to
have pleasant dreams.
Why oh why do you always start
to make conversations when
I'm about to drop off?
At least, I only
remember the good ones.
I was a happy kid,
had a happy life.
Oh yes.
I did have one
recurring nightmare.
Kept coming back for a while.
You don't want to know.
It's stupid.
I was chased by a
Mr. Punch puppet.
Sounds stupid, but
it was really scary.
It was.
A great big hand,
and red mottled face.
Big nose and chin,
grinning at me.
That's what comes from eating
too much cheese late at night.
Go to sleep.
I'm trying.
(music fades)
(plates clinking)
(clock ticking)
(suspenseful music)
(ominous music)
(suspenseful music)
(music intensifies)
(ominous music) (rain pattering)
(birds chirping, dogs
barking in distance)
Oh, mom.
Oh, I'd wish you'd knock.
Is that Earl Gray, with milk?
(birds chirping in distance)
See you tonight.
Don't overdo it.
Not a lot to do.
Make sure she remembers
to have some lunch.
Yeah yeah yeah, look.
I think you should
unpack some boxes later.
I'm beginning not
to notice them.
That's not good.
What's your hurry?
(gentle ominous music)
(door shutting)
(gentle ominous music)
(faucet creaking)
(water running)
(keys rattling) (distant bells)
(bells rattling)
(floor creaking)
(ominous music resumes)
(bells jingling)
(door shuts)
(man breathing)
(distant animal noises)
Won't be long.
Where are you off to?
A little exploring.
Don't worry, I've got
my phone if I get lost.
Do you even know
how to use that thing?
It's quiet?
I mean, the venue
itself lends itself to it,
but we'll be right in, sir.
Different locations,
aren't they?
To be honest with you,
it's totally up to you
what you do with it.
(ominous rumbling)
(gentle music)
(eerie music)
[Narrator] There once
was a girl called Maude.
We need to stop
meeting around dragons.
Have we met?
Sorry, my memory's not
what it used to be.
Dragons are misunderstood.
That was you.
Although technically,
it's not a dragon.
It's a Wyvern.
A Wyvern?
I thought Wyvern
House, where we live,
I thought it must have
been named after the river.
You have a house
named after a dragon?
I don't know about that.
There's something about this
place, this village, it's,
it's like I've been here before.
Maybe you have.
It's possible.
I've forgotten so many things.
Why is that, do you think?
(voice echoing)
(bird cawing in distance)
(ominous music)
Fuck you. (metal clinking)
(muttering under voice)
(bell rattling in distance)
(phone buzzing and ringing)
What's wrong?
Easy, yeah, I can't
hear you too well.
Where are you?
Alright, look.
Don't worry, I can find
my phone you, okay?
Just stay where you are.
I'll be there soon as.
Oh, fuck.
Next time I expect
you to be here
to show them around.
Yeah, I understand that.
But you'll be making the
best part of a tidy sum
when they sell.
I do not expect to have
to do your job for you.
(liquid bubbling)
Yeah, okay.
Yeah, okay.
I don't know what his name was.
He said you turned him.
Well didn't you?
I don't know.
I don't know.
Maybe he read a
blurb in your window.
(ominous music)
(film reel clicking)
Yeah, I'll tell him.
Okay, yeah.
(water running)
(distant pounding)
(distant wailing)
(ominous music)
(suspenseful music)
(music fades)
Is that you, mate?
Just been on to
Prescott's Estate agents.
They want you to get in touch.
(ominous music)
Hello? (water running)
(grunting) (suspenseful music)
(gasping and choking)
(body thuds) (suspenseful music)
(music cuts)
(music resumes)
(blades scraping)
(suspenseful music)
(blade swiping)
(high pitch tone)
(gentle ominous music)
Come on, Dorothy.
I have a feeling we're
not in Kansas anymore.
(gentle music)
You walked all this way?
Through fields?
Suppose you didn't fly.
You'll be hiding your
own Easter eggs soon.
(gentle music resumes)
You alright?
I'm fine.
I just lost my bearings.
I feel very silly.
You're a bit out of the way.
I know.
I was never very
good at geography.
(engine revs)
You know, what you did for us,
we're so grateful.
- Oh no, no.
No, if you hadn't come
in with us on the house,
we'd never been
able to afford it.
I know you didn't like
the place at first.
It was just a bit strange
at first, that's all.
It's okay now.
We all miss him, you know.
Do you remember that summer?
We did that barbecue.
He made his famous burgers.
God, they were disgusting.
Yeah, proper rank.
It was good though, wasn't it?
It really was.
It really was.
The church.
Connor, please, I need
to check on something.
(driving piano music)
(knocking on door)
- Anybody home?
- No, no one's here.
Yoohoo, Beth?
We did say one
o'clock, didn't we?
It's 20 past.
Maybe she thought
we weren't coming.
Where's the bedroom?
More like she's forgot.
Either way, where's
the bloody money?
Maybe she's locked
herself in the attic.
Like Anne Frank.
Have you tried calling her?
Straight to answering machine.
It's bigger than I thought.
It will look lovely
when it's finished.
(distant bell jingling)
Have they got a cat?
(ominous music)
There's a slash.
(ominous music)
I'm gonna piss myself.
(bells jingling)
(gentle eerie music)
(bells jingling)
(door creaks open)
(ominous music)
(bells jingling)
Here, kitty kitty...
(bells jingling)
(ominous music resumes)
(suspenseful music)
(intense music)
(body thuds) (music cuts)
I couldn't believe
it when I saw it.
Isn't it amazing?
(bag rustling)
(gentle ominous music)
You took your time.
Oh, tell me you didn't
do a number two.
(eerie breathing) (door slams)
I see you're
interested in our dragon.
I assume you know the tale.
The creature was found
when it was very young.
By a girl called Maude.
She fed it.
She loved it.
It grew up. (banging)
Got fed up on a diet
of milk and vegetables.
Started to steal local
cattle and sheep.
It got a taste for meat.
(glass shattering)
It angered the farmers,
who attempted to destroy it.
But of course, inevitably,
they sealed their own fate
and marched to their death.
(body thuds)
Some say the local
squire's son killed it.
Others say, (pounding)
That it never left.
It stays, hidden,
waiting patiently,
in the darkness of Wyvern Hill.
(ominous music)
(body scrapes) (music cuts)
(engine humming)
(car doors shutting)
Oh, wet feet.
(door shuts)
Ham and coleslaw
Sammy and a cuppa?
Yeah, I'll do it.
No, let me.
It's the least I can do.
Okay, thanks.
You know.
It's great waking
up to a mug of tea
on the bedside
table every morning,
but you really don't
need to do that.
Point taken.
You're not here
to look after us.
Yes, but,
I hope you don't mind me asking.
But who are you?
Fair one. (ominous music)
(humming melodically)
(suspenseful music)
(music cuts)
You do think we
did the right thing
moving mom in with
us, don't you?
I think so, yeah.
You know, not every
guy would agree
to move in with his girlfriend
and his girlfriend's mom.
Well, she's a good egg.
She really likes you.
She needs to see
someone, though.
Well I told her about
the morning tea business.
Oh, what did she say?
Yeah, she got it.
Oh, brilliant.
You'll be making
the tea from now on.
Oh will I, now?
Know your place.

(Beth screaming)
Mom, what's wrong?
What's the matter?
It was walking across
the bed, it was on me!
What was?
It was nothing.
I'm so sorry.
(gentle ominous music)
What did you see, mom?
What was your nightmare about?
It was silly.
It was a nightmare I
used to have as a kid.
You'd laugh if I told you.
I want to help you,
but I don't know what to do.
I should see my doctor.
I'm frightened.
We'll be here for you, okay?
Whatever happens, we'll
get you through this.
(gentle music)
(water dripping)
Ah, for fuck's sakes.
For fuck's sakes!
No no. (chatter on TV)
No, it's not that
sort of emergency.
(chattering on TV)
I've already explained.
It's for my mom, not for me.
That's the best you can do?
That's fine, yeah.
Thank you.
27th, 9:00 am.
That's the earliest we can
get you an appointment.
Two weeks.
It's fine.
I can wait.
It doesn't look like
we've got much choice.
Are you gonna be okay?
I'm not completely dotty yet.
Oh, well don't say that.
Well, you know what I mean.
(chatter on TV)
Look, have some rest today.
Love you.
Daft girl.
I love you, too.
In a paper kit,
going in and making
it different colors.
And you know, even
though you've got that-
Fucking hell.
Kill me now.
(humming melodically)
(gentle music)
(water running)
(dishes clinking)
Oh, what the hell?
Oh, oh...
(ominous music)
Oh god!
[Sue] Hi, it's Sue.
Leave a message. (beeping)
Hi Sue, it's Beth.
This is awful, I don't know
how I could've missed you.
Please call me when
you get this message.
Thanks, I'll try Jeff.
- [Jeff] Hi, it's Jeff.
- Oh Jeff.
[Jeff] Please leave a message.
I've just left a
message with Sue.
I'm coming 'round in an Uber.
Please, please call me.
Lots of love, Beth.
It's Beth! (ominous music)
[Sue] Hi, it's Sue.
Leave a message.
Sue, it's Beth again.
Please ring me.
(gentle ominous music)
(dog barking and whining)
[Neighbor] Not in.
Oh, hello.
Do you know where they've gone?
I don't, sorry.
I haven't seen them
since yesterday.
Yeah, I've been in all the time.
They left around
12:00, half 12:00.
Haven't been back since.
Poor old George, bless him,
he's been barking all night.
I was actually going
to go check in on him.
Have you got a key?
(dog barking and whining)
Oh George, there you are.
There's a good boy.
Hello? (gentle ominous music)
They're definitely not in.
You can tell when
a house is empty.
What did you just say?
You can tell when
a house is empty?
Yes you can.
(engine humming)
(indistinct chatter)
We were just...
You were just having
a conflab about me.
You're worried
about me, I get it.
Beth, we were just
having some us time.
We need to talk.
This is important.
You think I'm in the
early stages of dementia.
Well, I might be.
That I probably am.
I forget things,
I imagine things,
but I'm not mad.
I don't make you cups of tea
in the morning, I never have.
Fruit bowls don't
smash by themselves
and sweep up their shards.
I found a piece of glass
on the kitchen floor.
It cut me.
I didn't imagine that.
Slow down!
Something very
strange is going on.
Somebody's determined to
make me think I'm nuts.
- Of course they are.
- Who?
I don't know.
I haven't thought about it.
Sue and Jeff are missing.
- What?
Yesterday, God, it must
have been when we were out.
I found an envelope
with some money in it.
They're repaying a loan
month by month, never mind.
Sue had written on
the envelope the date,
and sorry to miss
you kind of thing.
They haven't been
back home since.
What are you saying?
Something's happened to them?
- Yes.
No, I don't know, but
something weird is going on.
They haven't been
back to their house.
The dog was left
alone overnight.
They love that dog, like a kid.
There could be any
number of reasons
why that might have happened.
Yes, and none of them good.
And Connor, I would never
just barge into your bedroom
without your permission.
Least of all to leave
you a cup of tea.
Even if I was losing
it, I wouldn't do that.
So what are you saying?
We've got a ghost butler.
Hey, you can cut
the attitude, no.
Something is going on.
(ominous music)
[Sue] Hi, it's Sue.
Leave a message.
(door clicking)
[Man] Night night.
(eerie music)
(film reel clicking)
(eerie music)
(music cuts)
(ominous music resumes)
(intense music)
Ken, Ken!
Hello, sweetheart.
Come back to bed.
Who the hell are you?
(suspenseful music)
You know who I am.
(intense music)
[Puppet] That's
the way to do it.
That's the way to do it.
That's the way to do it.
(puppet laughing)
That's the way to do it.
(Beth gasping)
(body thuds)
(intense music)
(muffled weeping) (eerie music)
(intense music)
(intense music)
Connor! (door slams)
You're going to
miss the finale, Beth!
Where's your phone?
I left it in my room.
We can't leave Connor!
- We have to!
We need to get out of here.
- Who are they, mom?
- I don't know!
Where's the key?
[Man] Where are you?
He's coming, Beth!
(voice echoing)
(floor creaking)
(muffled breathing)
(tape player clicks)
(eerie carnival music)
(music intensifies)
(ominous rumbling)
(muffled breathing)
(floor boards creaking)
Rectal reject.
(intense music)
(eerie music) (neck snaps)
That's the way to
do it, Mr. Punch.
Isn't that right, Beth?
That's the way to do it.
(music resumes)
(intense eerie music)
(muffled breathing)
(suspenseful music)
(ominous music)
(knocking on door)
(door creaking) (music resumes)
(suspenseful music)
(door slams)
(pounding on door)
Listen to me.
(pounding on door)
Just run, don't worry about me.
I won't be far behind you.
(pounding on door)
Get to Frank's
farm, call for help.
I'm not leaving without you.
I said go!
(suspenseful music resumes)
(pounding on door)
(music fades)
(eerie buzzing)
(labored breathing)
[Man] Beth. (voice echoing)
I'm ready for you.
(chimes ringing gently)
(gentle music)
Who are you?
There once was a girl.
Called Maude.
(girl laughing)
There once was a
girl called Maude.
Who picked up a
strange creature.
And brought it to her home.
(gentle music resumes)
You need to be strong
now, for our daughter.
Open your eyes. (voice echoes)
(gasping) (high pitch tone)
(muffled weeping)
Finally, you are awake.
(Beth stammers)
My Beth.
See, Beth.
now we dance.
(Beth wailing)
(intense music)
(Beth weeping)
[Puppet] That's
the way to do it.
(puppet laughing)
That's the way to do it.
That's the way to do it.
(intense music)
No, no! (weeping)
(Beth wailing)
(intense music resumes)
(puppet laughing maniacally)
[Puppet] That's
the way to do it.
(Beth wailing)
That's the way to do it.
That's the way to do it.
That's the way to do it.
(Beth weeping) (intense music)
(puppet laughing)
That's the way to do it.
That's the way to do it.
(puppet laughing)
(intense music)
(machine cranking)
That's the way to do it.
That's the way to do it.
That's the way to do it.
(ominous music)
(exploding) (screaming)
(eerie carnival music)
(puppet laughing)
Nice work, Mr. Punch.
(eerie music) (machine cranking)
Oh! (weeping)
You have front row tickets.
Why are you doing this?
Now Beth. (intense music)
Don't you just love the
randomness of it all?
We did all this for you.
We've listened to everything.
You like dragons.
I don't think we're
supposed to like dragons.
So lost.
So perfect.
(indistinct chattering)
The one we had always
been looking for.
The raw material that artists
can only hope for
once in a lifetime.
You see, Beth.
We did all of this for you.
You, Beth.
You are our masterpiece!
(weeping) (ominous music)
Smile for the audience.
(intense music)
Take your bow.
(wailing) (maniacal laughing)
(melancholy music)
It's alright, love.
Let go.
You don't have to see this.
Let go, come home.
Beth. (intense music)
And now, for the grand finale.
(eerie carnival music)
Please don't do this.
No! (blood splattering)
(muffled screaming)
(high pitch tone)
(maniacal laughing echoes)
(maniacal laughing)
(dog barking in distance)
Remember that Summer, Beth.
(gentle music)
(music fades)
And she's gone.
(eerie music)
(gentle music)
She's falling
Through the
cracks of her mind
Into memories
Those left behind
She's found her solace
Somewhere deep inside
Comfort from the pain
Somewhere she can hide
Somewhere safe
Are you safe, my dear
Are you safe in here
Can you feel my fear
Are you safe, my dear
Is it safe in here
Is it safe, my dear
(passionate music)
Are you safe, my dear
Are you safe, my dear
(music resumes)
(music fades)
(light thud)
(intense music)
(music fades)
