- Hey, Jack.
- [Jack] Yes, sweetheart?
- [Dana] We're short.
- Bullshit!
What do you mean we're short?
- [Dana] I mean we're
short, you fucking moron.
Gotta call Tommy and tell him.
- Slow down.
Slow down.
- He'll fucking kill us.

(nail scratches)
(Dana screams)
(laid back music)
- Shit.
- What, did you lose service?
We ain't got no service?
What are we gonna do?
What are we gonna do?
Oh, no, no!
Oh, no, somebody help!
Somebody help us, no service!
Oh, God! (laughs)
Hey, look, this is what
this is all about, man.
Hey, the great outdoors,
conquering our fears,
doing man stuff.
Yeah. (chuckles)
(ominous music)
- [Jesse] Nice Arian.
- Yeah.
Ah, you ain't gotta worry
about that.
Where we're going will
be far away from anyone,
just you and I.
Yes, sir.
Jesse, look at this,
look at this.
Oh, yeah.
Now this is what I'm
talking about, huh, huh?
This is beautiful, huh?
Ah, come on,
you know you love it, huh.
Yes, yes, yes.
All ours.
All right, come on.
- Hmm.
(bright music)
- [Leon] I mean,
Tom wasn't lying, huh?
- Who's Tom again?
- Jesse, I told you on
the way over here.
He's one of my clients.
He's a super friendly guy.
Hey, he really did us a
solid with this location.
I mean, just look at this.
Hey, I got a surprise for you.
I know there's many other places
you'd rather be right now,
and I understand that.
So for that, I thank you,
I hear you,
and I appreciate you, okay?
And I also know how much
you value your privacy.
So with that,
I got you your own tent.
- Wow.
Thank you.
This is great 'cause with
your snoring,
I wouldn't have been able to
sleep for a second. (laughs)
- Oh, that's funny?
It's real funny, huh?
Okay, okay.
Hey, look, you might
wanna be careful with that
because if it gets
below freezing out here,
you might have to snuggle up
with your old man for warmth.
- (laughs) That's disgusting.
- It's called survival, son.
Go ahead.
Hey, cheers.
- Cheers.
- To the outdoors.
- To the outdoors.
- He's beautiful.
He has your eyes.
- Dad, can I ask you a question?
- Of course, son, anything.
- Are you sleeping with Tom?
- What?
Am I sleeping,
no, I'm not sleeping-
- I mean, it's fine if you are.
- Why would you even-
- Why are you freaking out?
It's cool.
- I'm not freaking out.
- You sound a little homophobic.
- Homopho...
Jesse, damn it.
If I was sleeping with Tom,
that would be okay, all right?
It wouldn't be a big deal.
But I'm not, okay?
And I'm straight, Jesse.
I'm straight.
I'm not gay.
I made you.
- Okay, okay.
It's fine,
you're not sleeping with Tom.
It's just that it's been
five years
and I haven't seen you
with anyone.
No dates.
I just don't want you to be
alone, dad.
- I hear you, son.
No, I,
listen, I really appreciate
your concerns, Jesse,
I really do.
It actually means a lot.
But no, your dad's all right.
I'm okay.
I figured we'd talk about
tomorrow, huh?
Go for a hike or something
like that,
fresh first start in
the morning,
find a good spot and do
some swimming.
Just think about that.
Are you there?
- We never talk about her.
- Do you wanna talk about her?
- I think about it a lot.
I hear it too.
- [Maya] No, no!
(gunshot blasts)
- We don't need to, uh,
we don't need to talk about
that, okay?
- Why not?
- Because we just don't,
all right?
- It's because you're scared.
- Hey, hey.
All right now, Jesse,
that's enough.
- No, no.
All the time you talk
about conquering your fears
but you're scared to even
talk about it,
and you're scared to be alone.
And now,
I have to pay the price for it!
You know how much I
wanted to go on that trip!
- I just wanted a nice
father-son bonding time, okay,
with you before you left
for college.
I mean, what's wrong with that?
Is that all right, is that okay?
Is that too much to ask?
- You said that it's something
we should just try to
forget about, but I can't.
I can't.
I sit and I think about all
the things I could have done,
but then I remember I was just,
I was just fucking 12.
But then I sit there
and I think about all the things
you could have done.
Where were you, dad, huh?
Where were you?
- That's enough.
I said that's enough, okay?
is enough!
- I'm sorry you can't handle-
- I said that's enough, Jesse.
No more.
We don't need to talk
about that.
(birds chirp)
I got some eggs for you, man.
Better get it while it's hot.
Hey, man.
Listen, I was doing some
thinking and
look, I'm sorry, okay?
I'm sorry.
You were right.
Forcing you out here, that
was real selfish of me.
I apologize about that.
So it's up to you,
but I was thinking
maybe I could drive you to
the music festival thing
if you're still down for it.
The way I see it, I tell
you what, if we leave now,
we can probably get
there by mid-afternoon.
Tell you what.
I'ma go take a drive
for a little bit
and just leave you alone
for right now, okay?
(engine stalls)
(ominous music)
Jesse, come on!
Hey, we gotta go, man.
Hey, come on!
Jesse, no time for this, man.
Wake up, wake up, come on.
Hey, hey.
Hey, hey, hey please!
Hey, hey,
can you help me out, please?
- [Scott] No.
On your knees.
On your knees!
- Look, look, sir,
sir, I'm just-
- May I ask what business
you have in these parts?
- Me and my son came camping
here last night and I'm-
- Who the fuck said you
could camp around here?
- Look, I just need some
help, okay?
A phone, or even a ride.
Look, please!
My son is missing.
- You know,
there's a reason why you
jungle bunnies shouldn't
come 'round this way.
All you do is bring
fucking trouble.
- Sir, I promise you, I'm
not looking for any trouble.
I'm just trying to-
- [Scott] What should we
do, Billy?
Should we teach him a lesson?
- Maybe later.
Tommy might wanna talk to him.
- Are you sure?
We got a pickup from Jack
and Dana's
in about five minutes, so.
- Well then we'll bring
him along.
- That motherfucker!
(gunshots blast)
Come on.
We're just trying to help you.
I wouldn't go no further.
You don't wanna get lost in
those woods.
We'll find you.
We'll find you.
- We're late.
Let's go.
(engine whirs)
(leaves rustle)
(suspenseful music)
(Leon screams)
- [Leon] Oh, God!
(ominous music)
(Leon coughs and gags)
- Hello, mister.
You look like you need
some help.
What happened?
- My son went missing.
We were out here camping
last night.
He went missing, and we,
I woke up this morning,
he was gone.
And there's a body hanging
from a tree in those woods.
- Here?
Come on, let's go.
What are you gonna do,
stay here?
- Who are you?
- Name's Kaine.
(intense rock music)
It's no use.
Still got 40 minutes
before we find service.
But I got a landline in my
place though.
- Don't you think it would
just be faster
if we just to the police
- (chuckles) police station?
Don't you know where you are?
There's no police around here.
Hell, there ain't no
laws at all.
This whole area, you're run
by the Appalachian Grove Grid.
Big network,
houses and dealers,
all built the key narcotics
in the big city.
You know, the rule is you
don't fuck with the money.
Did you fuck with the money?
- No.
No, I don't think so.
- Main boss's cameras
all over these woods,
so chances are he knows
you're here.
- You wait here.
(ominous music)
(knocking on door)
Jack, Dana?
Hey, anybody there?
It's Scott.
I'm supposed to pick up
about 12:30 from you guys.
(suspenseful music)
(Scott grunts)
(laid back music)
- Look, Leon, I like you.
I'm gonna let you in on
a little secret.
Lucky for you, I've been around
these parts quite some time
and got a little pull
in the area.
Make a few calls,
get some answers.
- Yeah, anything.
Whatever it takes.
- There is the one thing though.
favors such as these
often entail some sort
of a scheme.
My pop always said never
do anything for free.
You know what I'm saying?
Anything else you wanna
tell me about what happened?
- Yeah.
Whoever took him,
they sabotaged my car.
You know what this is?
(ominous music)
(phone rings)
- Look, Leon.
Can you step outside
for a second?
I gotta take this.
- Yeah.
(ominous music)
- He's here.
(Billy chants in foreign
Beg you for mercy.
- He's here right now.
I'll try, but...
Listen, if I have to, I will,
but it's gonna cost you.
And your boys have to do
the cleanup.
I never shit in my house.
You got it?
(gunshot blasts)
(bottle shatters)
Holy shit, you,
you crazy motherfucker!
- Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey!
Tell me what the is
going on, man.
- Easy now.
- [Leon] Hang up that phone!
- All right, all right,
everybody stay calm.
All right.
Hey, you mind if I have a smoke?
- Don't play with me, man.
- Oh, I'm playing.
All right, now you ain't
handle a lot of guns,
have you, boy?
Hey, hey, hey, no.
I was just on the phone there,
found out some information
for your son.
- Bullshit.
- No, no, no, no.
You're all right.
You have no idea what you're
involved in.
(suspenseful music)
(Leon screams)
Give yourself up.
- Says the guy on his knees
with a gun pointed at his
fucking head.
Now where is my son?
- Your son's dead.
- You're fucking lying.
Where is he?
- He's in fucking hell!
(gunshot blasts)
you shot me in the hand!
- Look, look, I'm sorry, man.
Just, just tell me where he is!
- All right, come here.
I'll tell you.
- Look, I'm not playing
any games, all right, man?
- Ain't no games, man.
I'm done.
I'm done.
Come here.
(Kaine laughs)
- It's the wrong answer, boy.
- [Kaine] Oh!
(intense rock music)
- Hey, hey!
Hey, hey, hey, hey, calm down,
calm down!
Stop, stop, stop!
I'm here to help you.
I'm here to help you.
I'm here to help you.
Okay, let me just...
- Who are you?
- [Leon] Name's Leon.
- Tara.
Give me your gun.
- [Kaine] Hey, baby.
(gunshots blast)
- Hey, where are you going?
You're looking for your
son, right?
- Yeah.
- See that?
I think I know someone who
could help you.
- Who?
- It's this old priest
out in the middle of nowhere
off the map.
I could take you there and
we're even.
- Deal.
(ominous music)
So who is this guy?
- A family friend.
Probably the only guy you
can trust around here.
Good luck.
(knocking on door)
- Hey, hey!
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa!
- Are you armed?
- No!
- What do you want?
- I'm looking for my son.
- Keep your voice down,
she's sleeping.
What's your name?
- It's Leon.
- She said you might be coming.
- Who?
Look, look, I came here
camping with my son.
He's 17.
This morning, when I woke up,
he was gone.
Whoever took him,
they left this.
Sir, please, can you help me?
- My life's most dreaded fear.
Well, I'd hoped she was wrong.
She is never wrong.
- Sir, is my son alive?
- I don't know.
Come with me.
In order for you to understand
the dangers that you and
your son face,
I need you to understand
the dark history that
surrounds us.
- Okay, fine.
- In 1975,
the cult of Bael was formed.
Bael, the original king of hell.
Followers believed if they
helped summon the demon,
they could keep their youth.
Soon, they found their first,
a poor sick teenager
named Damon.
Dr. Bannon convinced the father
that the ritual would save
his son's life.
Even though the boy's
body was saved,
the soul was sent to purgatory.
As his body became possessed,
the fusion of demon and boy
created monsters for us.
(Damon screams)
He developed supernatural
as well as an insatiable
sadistic thirst
for pain, bloodshed.
He left the bodies strung
up on display
as if it was a stamp
of authority.
The locals called him
the Hangman.
- The Hangman.
Like the kids' game?
- Eventually, the townsfolk
banded together,
captured him and hanged him.
But he simply would not die.
Instead, they burned the body.
And after 50 years of waiting,
he's returned.
- Shit.
- I know.
- No.
No, shit, as in this has been
a waste of my goddamn time!
Look, I need to get to
the police, man.
- There are no police.
This is a lawless land.
Only God and the devil
rule here.
- What the fuck does that
even mean, man?
Listen, you wanna know
what I think?
I'll tell you what I think.
I think this whole town
is crawling full of psychopathic
crazy ass
lynching type motherfuckers.
Yeah, yeah.
And I think my son,
Jesse, I think he got up
in the middle of the night to
go shit or piss or something,
and then one of you crazy
racist assholes
decided to fuck with him.
That's what I think.
And instead of going to
go find him
or getting a search party going,
I'm sitting here listening to
your urban legend bullshit.
- I'm only asking you
to consider-
- Can I use the landline,
The police gotta do something
around here.
- Esther said
(phone rings)
when the darkness is on
the horizon,
a bright light from far
away will shine through.
- [Operator] We're sorry.
You have reached a number
that has been disconnected
or is no longer in service.
- [Jedidiah] I believe
you may be that light.
(phone rings)
- [Tony] This is
Dean Gutter Sales.
How can I help you?
- Hey, hey, Tony.
It's, uh, it's Leon.
- [Tony] Leon,
how's camping going?
- It could be a lot better, man.
Hey, listen, real quick, can
I get an update on a sale?
Client's name is Tom Bannon, a
house on North Forest Street.
- [Tony] Oh, wow.
Um, so I guess another rep
tried calling
and they never ordered anything.
Also, they didn't know
who Tom was.
- Who's Tom again?
- He's one of my clients.
Man, he really did us a
solid with this location.
- [Tony] Wait,
isn't that the guy
that was lending you
his property?
- Jedidiah,
who is that?
- That's Dr. Thomas Bannon,
the man who persuaded Jonah,
the father,
to let him summon the demon
into his son.
- All right.
What do we do?
- We talk to Esther.
Esther is a being
of certain gifts.
Unfortunately, over the past
year, she's become very weak.
- What do you mean gifts?
- You'll see.
Oh, one more thing.
Try not to stare.
She can sense it.
- Shit, is she...
(Esther wheezes)
- No.
Talk to her, my son.
- Hello?
- Closer.
- Esther?
- Don't stare.
- Hey.
(Esther wheezes)
What do I do?
- Leon.
I feel your pain.
You're lost.
- Do you know anything
about my son?
- A great evil has returned.
- Is my son still alive?
- He, he's
- What?
Jesse's here, he's here?
- No.
He's here.
(object thuds)
- Stay with her here.
(door slams)
Keep talking to her.
- Oh, fuck.
- May God rebuke him,
we humbly pray,
and do thou, O Prince
of the heavenly host,
by the power of God,
thrust into hell Satan,
and all his evil spirits
who wander through the world
for the ruin of souls.
Oh, Damon.
I just wanted to help you.
(door slams)
Oh, but I see Damon is no more.
Show yourself, Bael!
(suspenseful music)
(door creaks)
(door slams)
A coward hiding in the shadows.
(Jedidiah grunts)
(neck cracks)
(Jedidiah screams)
- Esther, please, please.
Tell me, where is he?
- It wants him.
It needs him.
- What are you talking about?
- Deep in the belly
of the spider.
- Hey, hey.
(door creaks)
(serene music)
(Leon grunts)
What the fuck is going on?
(Jedidiah gasps)
Oh, shit!
- He's here.
You have to find your son.
Take this.
As soon as that enters
the heart of the Hangman,
it'll send him straight
back to hell.
Do you hear me?
- Yeah, yeah, yeah, I hear you,
It's just,
I mean,
it's not even pointy, man.
It's not sharp.
- There are many pathways
to the heart.
Are you a man of faith?
(suspenseful music)
(soft piano music)
- That's beautiful, Billy,
but can you hold on a second?
I think our friend here
is waking up.
Hello, Leon.
I'm surprised you're
awake so soon.
I was worried that Billy
here overdid it
with the atracurium.
- Where the fuck is my son, Tom?
- Oh. (chuckles)
They call me Tommy
around here now.
Back in the day, I was Dr.
Thomas Bannon.
But people in town
started to think
I became a bit too
ostentatious, so yeah,
it's Tommy.
You know, I used to be quite
progressive back in the day.
In fact, I don't think anyone
in this town
would have considered doing
business with a colored man
before I took over.
Back then, someone like you
took one step in these parts,
he'd be a dead man walking.
- Where is he?
- Right.
(soft music)
- Let him go!
- Sorry, no can do.
- He didn't do anything.
You know he didn't do anything.
- Oh, I know.
He's just a product of
unfortunate circumstances.
- Please.
What do you want?
What do you want, money?
- Oh, no!
We have all the money
we could ever want here.
- Then what?
- Leon, what would you do for
the people you care about,
friends, family, lovers?
(Leon coughs)
- Something wrong.
No, I just threw up in my
mouth a little bit there.
- (chuckles) Oh,
don't be fooled, Leon.
Billy here is an old lady.
Why, for the past 50 years,
we have been able to live
a life without aging.
I myself, on my next birthday,
am going to be 127 years
of age. (laughs)
All because we helped one
little demon out of hell.
(ominous music)
(leaves rustle)
- Did you hear that?
(leaves rustle)
(leaves rustle)
(suspenseful music)
(gunshots blast)
- [Tom] People around here
aren't as versed as we are.
- Hey, little guy.
It'll all be over soon.
- [Tom] Would you like
a cigar, Leon?
- No, Tom,
I don't fucking smoke.
- You're right.
It's gross, isn't it?
But they do take their toll.
We're not immortal per se.
(scoffs) That would be terrible,
having to live in this
world forever.
No, we can die whenever we want.
(laughs) We just get to live
like gods while we're here.
And this empire,
it has brought us all the money
we could ever ask for.
And what's more,
nobody even knows we exist.
- What does any of this
bullshit have to do with my son?
- Unfortunately,
the time has come
to find a new host
for the big guy.
The original has reached
his expiration date.
Now, naturally,
it has to be young.
But more importantly,
it has to be a soul
filled with crushing,
agonizing pain.
And after reading about
his mother, your wife,
little Jesse was obviously
the perfect candidate.
As I said, a product of
unfortunate circumstances.
Easy, my friend!
- Trust me,
I am not your fucking friend.
- Anyway, tonight, we simply
have to present our gift,
and then my people will
be all set
for the next 50 years. (laughs)
- Let me explain something
to you, man.
If you don't wanna die
in the next two minutes,
you better let my fucking
son free.
I don't care what you do to me.
It doesn't matter.
- Leon,
haven't you wondered why
we haven't killed you yet,
why the Hangman hadn't had his
way with you of all people?
I think you know,
and it's the saddest part of
all of this if you ask me.
You see, he can sense it.
Your son knows his daddy is
still alive,
and you, Leon, bring your
son more pain than anyone.
That's right, isn't it?
You know exactly what I'm
talking about.
(gunshots blast)
(guard screams)
That Hangman can be a handful
- You wanna see a show, mister?
- The truth is this is
all operated by idiots.
There are only a select
few of us
that are actually in the know.
They all can't die soon
enough if you ask me.
Leon, what the fuck are
you doing?
(Leon screams)
That looks mighty painful.
Killing yourself don't
make any difference now.
Billy, can you get
someone in here right now?
- Shit!
You stay the fuck out of my
way, asshole.
- You still got a lot of drugs
running through your system.
Side effects include blurred
vision, loss of balance,
and oh, yes, mild paralysis.
You open that door,
Leon, you're a dead man.
Your boy's gone.
No reason for you to die too.
- Okay.
So you wanna shoot me, huh?
- Fucking shoot me.
Come on, right here, right here!
Then all of that pain and
sadness shit from my boy
is gone then, right?
- You're right, shit.
(Leon grunts)
You wanna burn, Leon?
Then burn.
(Tom laughs)
(Leon screams)
- Oh, fuck! (grunts)
- Ouch.
I tried to be respectful,
explain everything to you.
But no, you had to go and
make a scene.
And now, I have to live
with this fucking face
for the next 50 years.
Oh, would you look at that.
Leon, your boy is on the road
to hell. (laughs)
(gunshot blasts)
What the fuck?
(intense rock music)
long time, no see.
(gunshot blasts)
- Oh, oh!
Thank you.
- You're welcome.
- [Leon] My main man said,
"Happy birthday, baby."
- [Tom] You, Leon, bring your
son more pain than anyone.
- [Maya] No, no!
(gunshot blasts)
- [Tom] You know exactly
what I'm talking about.
(Leon gasps and grunts)
- Easy, you're all right.
- He has him.
He has him.
- I know.
- Where are we going?
- Uh, home, if it's still there.
(laid back music)
Are you married?
- No, no, I, uh,
I was.
She's gone now.
- Sorry.
- You?
- I gotta ask what the hell
you were doing out here.
- [Leon] It's a long story.
- You know, as a kid
growing up around here,
my mama claimed that the Hangman
killed my grandparents.
I never believed her until now.
What do they want with your son?
- It's the pain.
- That's what that was for.
- No, no, no.
It's not me.
The pain is the reason
that they want my son.
- What do you mean?
- Five years ago,
he lost his mother,
my wife.
It was my fault.
- Hey.
- [Mike] Hey.
- This is where we usually sit.
- Oh, well, I'm sorry, but
this is where we're sitting.
- I'm not asking again.
- I don't think you even
asked the first time, really.
- Guys,
it's the regulars, big
spenders, so if you don't mind.
- What?
- Nah, nah,
don't worry about it.
Tell you what.
How much for that big bottle
right there?
- It's too much for you
mister Bud Light Special.
- Nice, nice.
We'll take that, please.
- It's 250,
and we're not a liquor store.
- Well, how about this?
How about you keep
pouring until it's empty?
- Sorry.
- Sorry.
Whoa, whoa, whoa.
What are you doing, bruh?
- Oh.
It's all good.
- [Leon] Hey, Mike.
- It's all good over here.
Damn, what's gotten into-
- Don't worry about it, man.
Everything's cool,
everything's cool.
We on easy street,
baby, trust me.
- We on easy street?
- Dig this.
So Maya's grandmother left
her a ton of jewelry, right?
And she don't give
a shit about it.
She don't care about nothing.
- [Mike] Right.
- We got it appraised yesterday.
When I say it's worth a
lot, bro, it's worth a lot.
- How much are we talking?
- Like we looking for a new
house a lot.
(Leon and Mike laugh)
- [Mike] Congratulations,
brother, that's amazing.
- Thank you.
It's all right.
Don't worry about the money
- [Intruder] Keep taunting me!
Get up, get up!
Open it.
(gunshot blasts)
- He's thinking about it and...
- You're angry.
I know the feeling.
- And why are you helping
me, huh?
I thought you said we were even.
- Now, you help me
stop this village.
I think you should.
- You said you were a nurse?
- Yeah.
Until back about when this mess,
there's no doctor around here.
And then I met Kaine,
but no one gave a shit.
- You killed all those men?
- I did.
- [Leon] Where are you going?
- I need a shower.
- Deep in the belly
of the spider.
- Oh, shit!
Got you, motherfucker.
(ominous music)
(suspenseful music)
Kaine, you weird son of a bitch.
Yeah, okay, okay.
- Hey, you leaving?
- I know where he's
taking him, the Hangman.
I know where Jesse is.
- Where are you going?
- Hell, baby.
(intense rock music)
- You know you still owe me.
- Sorry, sugar.
Rain check?
- Welcome back.
Let's play.
- Hey, what's up, toots?
- You're making a big mistake.
- Hand me that crossbow.
Give it to me now.
Yeah, yeah, you bet I am.
Now, if you don't wanna lose
your throat,
I suggest you take me
to where I need to go.
- (chuckles) You have no idea
where you're going, do you?
- No, no, I don't,
but I know you do.
So let's go.
(ominous music)
Open it.
- I'm telling you, you don't
wanna know what's down there.
Your son is gone.
- Open it.
That's the gateway to
hell if I ever seen one.
(Leon grunts)
- Sorry, Leon.
You don't know who you're
messing with.
You think I was born
yesterday, hmm? (chuckles)
I am 78 years old.
Now tell me, are you happy, hmm?
Look at me when I'm
talking to you!
Are you happy?
Because you took
everything from me
all because I took one little
pissant teenager from you.
That just doesn't seem fair.
I should be thanking you
because I think it was
about time
for a change in leadership.
(laughs) And if there's
anything I've learned
in my time around here,
it's that love is all
about sacrifice.
- Fuck you!
- No.
No, Leon.
I know you.
We're not so different,
you and me.
Gutter trash,
underestimated, margin,
just waiting for our turn!
Now this is my turn.
- You don't know what
the fuck you're doing.
You'll be alone!
(Billy laughs)
- Oh, no.
No, no.
You thought it was just us.
We are so much bigger than that.
And we are gonna be around
for a long, long time
all thanks to your boy,
your sacrifice.
(laughs) War is coming.
Only a matter of time until,
where I
get to see the new
You know what?
Let's play a game.
I know the perfect one.
Four letters.
Watch Leon what?
Watch Leon what?
All right, I'll give you a hint.
It starts with a B.
Oh, come on, you know.
If you get it right,
maybe we can talk about
being friends, hmm?
Watch Leon what?
You can't be that stupid, right?
Watch Leon what?
- Watch-
- What's that Leon?
(Leon screams)
Come on.
- Bitch, watch this.
(suspenseful music)
(Billy grunts)
- No.
No, no!
Fuck, no!
(Billy screams)
Yes, yes!
(Billy screams)
No more camping.
I'm coming for you, Jesse.
I'm coming.
(suspenseful music)
(Leon screams)
Where the hell am I?
- Hello?
Who's there?
- Damon!
They can save you.
- No, no!
- [Jonah] It's the only way
to survive!
It's time to be a man!
- [Damon] No!
(neck cracks)
(Leon screams)
- Leon!
Don't shoot.
- She comes with me.
She comes with me!
Get up, get up!
Stay in the room or I
will kill her
and everyone else in this
fucking house!
Where's the fucking
jewelry, where?
(object shatters)
- [Maya] I'm trying!
- [Intruder] Open it, open it!
- [Maya] Okay!
I'm sorry.
I'm trying, I'm trying!
I'm trying!
- [Jesse] Mom?
- [Maya] Tell me what you want!
- [Jesse] Mom!
(door creaks)
- [Intruder] Open it!
Fuck, open it!
(gunshot blasts)
- [Maya] Please, just
tell me what you want!
Let me go!
- Dad!
- This isn't, this isn't real.
This can't be.
This can't be real.
- [Jesse] Dad!
- Jesse.
Jesse, I'm here
I'm here for you, Jesse.
Jesse, it's okay, I'm here!
Jesse, I'm here!
I'm here for you, Jesse!
Come on, Jesse, it's me!
Come on, Jesse, it's me!
- [Maya] No, no, no, no!
(gunshot blasts)
- Jesse.
I need you to be strong,
son, okay?
And I'm sorry.
I'm sorry, son.
I know you've been hurt,
Jesse, and I've been hurt too.
I think about what
happened every single day.
And about how amazing
and what brave a woman
your mother was
and how much she loved you.
And even though she's gone
now, I can still feel her.
And I know you can feel her too.
I know you.
She doesn't want you to be
in pain, son.
No more pain.
Even though this moment will
be a part of our lives forever,
we can't let it define us,
and we absolutely could
not let it define her.
You hear me, son?
(suspenseful music)
(Leon grunts)
(explosion blasts)
(Leon grunts)
Hey, this thing working?
I'm looking for one
mean, ugly son of a bitch
that goes by the name Hangman.
See, a little birdy told me
that someone's got a thirst
for bloodshed.
If you're thirsty,
I'm your guy.
And just so we're clear
and on the same page,
if you wanna go around
and kill an innocent kid,
you're gonna have to
kill me first.
You like that, Hangman.
Oh, oh, oh, no.
Or should I call you Damon?
(Hangman growls)
Yeah, you dig that, Damon?
That's about right.
(Leon screams)
(Leon coughs)
All right, pretty boy,
let's dance
(neck cracks)
(suspenseful music)
You gotta be fucking kidding me.
(chainsaw whirs)
(Leon grunts)
(explosion blasts)
(Leon screams)
- [Jesse] Dad!
- Jesse!
(grunts) Fuck!
- Ow.
- Yeah, you son of a bitch.
(Leon screams)
What the fuck?
(horn honks)
Yeah, that's right.
I know who you are!
You ain't nothing but a
sick, scared little boy
crying for his daddy.
That's right.
I know you're in there!
- Damon!
You're angry.
It's okay.
I'd be angry too.
I know you want this to be over.
- Dad, I don't like this.
Please make me it stop.
- Damon, you're being weak!
- No, I'm not!
It hurts.
Everything hurts.
- It's the only way to survive!
It's time to be a man!
- Straight through the heart,
(suspenseful music)
Bye, Damon.
No! (grunts)
(ground shifts)
(rope creaks)
(machine whirs)
- Dad!
(Leon coughs)
Dad, dad, dad!
(Leon sobs)
(dramatic music)
You okay, dad?
- I'm just tired, son.
(Jesse chuckles)
So you're gonna have to
explain a lot.
(Leon grunts)
- What do you remember?
- Well, throughout the fire,
and I was being a dick.
I'm sorry.
- Hey, hey, no, no.
Come here.
Listen to me.
No, son, you were right, okay?
We do need to talk more
about her,
about everything, all right?
You were right, and I was wrong.
- Anyway,
then I went to bed, I
had this crazy ass dream,
and I woke up in the woods.
What did I miss?
- Quite a bit, son.
Quite a bit.
- Whose car is that?
- Jesse, I promise you,
we'll get every single answer
for you coming soon, man.
It's just,
how about we just go home, huh?
What do you say about that?
- Dad,
you need to go to a hospital.
- You're right, you're right.
I'm fine with that.
It's a good idea.
- What?
- I love you, son.
- I love you too, dad.
Hey, can you start from
the beginning?
- [Leon] Yeah,
just give me a second.
(Leon snores)
- [Jesse] Dad.
(chuckles) Come on, really?
Yo, uh
I'm staying strong on this
journey and this mission
I wanna elevate and finally
go and beat the system
Finally beat the hate
that they always try
They're impressing us with
And overcome the pain that
they always inflicting us with
Struggle so vain,
it's the same old say
Nothing changed so everyday,
it's the same old thing
It's like all the effort
we're putting is in vain
And all the haters and
naysayers back at it again
But no, ain't no stopping
Keep it moving,
give it all you got
It took a whole lot
of climbing to reach
the mountaintop
But ain't no looking back,
we done overcame a lot
And what's the point and we
keep going and don't ever stop
Discrimination, plenty hate,
yeah, that's the game playing
We don't show love to our
neighbor or our fellowman
Living amongst the lawless
criminals in the gangland
Another one left out to
dry, call him hangman
Who you hating so much
Tell me what you waiting for
Yo, we still can make
a change
Tell me what you waiting for
Plant the seeds of positivity
but they don't let it grow
How you ever gonna change
When all your life
that's all you know, uh
