The Lost Tree (2016) Movie Script

- Hey.
- Hey, I got your text.
- Yeah, let's celebrate tonight.
- You got the promotion?
- I sure did.
- That's awesome.
So we can finally get
the living room painted,
and that bedroom set.
Why don't you
start by picking out
a perfect little restaurant
for us tonight?
Okay, um, what are you
in the mood for?
Hey, what the hell?!
Oh. Sorry.
Uh, nothing.
Look, I'm just getting back
to the office right now,
so, uh, I better go.
Okay, okay.
Well, love you.
I love you too.
I'll see you tonight.
I know. You're impressed.
It's all right,
you can admit it.
So how did
you close the account?
Uh, well, I told them that
if they went with Schultz,
they'd be signing
their death certificates.
Well, all right.
So, did you tell
the missus yet?
Yeah, I, uh,
I texted her right away.
You know, we're gonna
go celebrate tonight.
But, um, we'll see how
she feels after we've spent
four straight weeks
together on vacation.
It's too bad, 'cause
I would have really enjoyed
having our own
private celebration.
Sounds like I'm missing out.
Yeah, we both are.
Just a few years too late.
what she doesn't know
won't hurt her, right?
I was told I could
find you here.
It's not what you think, I...
Oh, God. Emma?!
- I didn't see her.
- It's my wife.
I didn't... I...
- Hey, you should...
- Call an ambulance!
Please wake up.
No, Emma, no...
No, please don't do this.
I'm so sorry.
Please wake up.
I love you.
I love you.
Just you and me.
We'll be gone from here.
Just you and me.
I love you.
Hey, you've reached Emma...
And Noah.
Leave a message.
Hey, it's me again.
Just seeing how you are.
Well, if you need anyone
to talk to, I'm... I'm here.
Okay, bye.
Finally decided
to pay you a visit.
What are you doing here?
I know where you been.
Oh, you do?
Of course I do.
Told you not to
keep going there.
Gotta make up your own mind.
All right, we've had
this conversation before.
I don't want to hear it
from you again.
Maybe not, but I know
exactly how you feel.
Yeah, everyone thinks
that they know how I feel.
You know, listen.
Your mother, when she died,
I mean...
It was over for me.
I had nothing left.
There was one thing
that kept me going.
I wanted to see
how my son turned out.
My life wasn't supposed
to turn out this way.
There's only one person that
can turn your life around.
That's you.
That's your job.
My job's over.
You gotta do this
for yourself.
Hey, just promise me
that you'll never
go back there again.
Take some time.
Get away from it all.
I don't know if you
can hear me or not,
but not a day goes by
without you.
But I miss you.
I'm going away
for a little bit.
Hey. Hey, you're back.
You know, I've been
trying to reach you.
Are you... are you back
for good, or...?
I'm leaving.
Oh, but what about
the McQuarry account?
work on it remotely
and upload the files via FTP.
Hey, Dad. It's me.
Oh, hey, uh...
What's going on?
I just wanted to let you know
that I rented a cabin
in Lost Lakes.
I'm getting out of the city.
Well, congratulations.
Well, figured you were right.
Little time away.
Could do me some good.
Anyway, I'll, uh...
take some photos when I get
up there and send 'em to you.
Sounds great.
I'm proud of you.
All right.
Talk to you in a bit.
That's me.
Alan Parks, we spoke earlier.
How are you?
Hey, Alan, it's nice
to meet you.
You, too.
So where is the property?
Oh, it's right up the road.
I parked out front
to help you find
the place easier.
It's an easy... easy place
for people to miss,
but I guess that's why
you're coming out here.
Great, so...
should we go see the place?
Well, uh, you know...
Actually, I'm supposed to show
another place here in a bit.
So why don't I just
hand you the keys,
and if you have any questions
you can just reach me on my cell.
Um, so what you want to do
is you want to continue up
that road there to the left,
it's the yellow house
up on the hill.
Um... thanks.
Uh, by the way, the family
that lived there before
left all their stuff there.
Why's that?
I'm not sure really.
They just up and left.
Well, which reminds me,
if you like swimming
and fishing,
there's a pond nearby.
So just follow the trail
behind the house,
you'll lead right to it.
Aw, that's disgusting.
So, Moppy, where we going
on vacation this year?
You know how much I hate
that nickname, right?
I think it's so cute.
So where do you
want to go?
I don't know.
How 'bout, uh...
How 'bout Vegas?
How about...
I was thinking somewhere
more quiet, you know?
Get out of the city
for a little bit.
Hey, we can rent a cabin.
I mean, why go from one
crowded city to another?
Probably because, uh,
I would die of boredom
if we were in a cabin.
Well, I personally think that
I have more than enough ways
to keep you occupied.
Oh, you do?
It's just the two of us.
- Do you?
- All alone.
- Mm-hmm.
- In a cabin.
And away from everything.
Oh, shit.
Noah, it's me.
Oh, hey, Dad.
How's it going?
It's good.
Thanks, it's, uh...
very peaceful.
Everything you expected?
So far, so good.
You know, I'm still
just adjusting to...
You there?
You know, let me... let me
call you back in a little bit.
I just gotta...
I'm gonna check on something.
Sure, call me later.
Why don't you send me
some pictures.
Take a couple of snapshots
and send 'em to me.
Love to see what
the place looks like.
Yeah, sure.
This isn't funny anymore.
Now what?
What the hell is...
What the f...
Where are you?
I did talk to my mom
last night.
Oh, yeah? Is she still pissed
that you moved in with me?
Pretty much, but I...
I don't care.
Well, what did you
say to her?
Well, I mean, I told her
that she needed to
basically let me live my life
the way I wanted to,
and, you know, she should
focus on hers more.
You said that?
- Yeah.
- Mm?
Yeah, I did.
And then she hung up on me
directly after.
That sounds about right.
Mm-hmm, yeah.
I'll have to
treat you right, then.
Well, I hope so.
I mean, I'm only isolating
myself from my family over you.
Well, in that case...
I'll have to make an honest
woman out of you then.
Is that what I think it is?
It is.
I don't know what to say.
Well, say yes.
Are you gonna love me forever?
Of course I will.
Even when I'm like, old
and gray-haired and wrinkly?
even when you're old and gray-haired.
Oh, yes!
Of cour... Yes, yes.
Yes, of course, yes.
Oh, my God, I'm the happiest
girl in the world.
Oh, I love it.
Come here.
Hold on, hold on,
I love it.
I love it, I love it.
Thank you so much,
I love you.
I love you too.
I'm getting really
sick of this.
You've gotta be kidding me.
That is just weird.
Come on.
Guess I won't be getting
any sleep tonight.
What the hell?
Damn it!
Guess I'll be paying you
a visit tomorrow.
Well, looks like I won't be
swimming or fishing, Alan.
What, you got something to say?
This can't be happening.
Are you kidding me?
- Wha...
- Jenna.
I... I'm so sorry.
Did I catch you at a bad time?
No. No. Um...
Look, please, just come in.
Are you sure?
Yeah. Yeah. I...
It's a long story.
Well, uh...
Wow. This is... interesting.
Yeah, it's...
Don't look at me.
I didn't know this place was decorated
like this, you know, until I got here.
I see.
So, what... what brings you
all the way out here?
Well, I just wanted
to see how you were doing
and also see if you had that file that
you were supposed to send me today.
Right. The file.
You see, it got...
No, no.
It got corrupted, so...
I mean, I basically
have to start from scratch.
I just need a few days more.
You know what?
It's okay.
Really, don't stress about it,
I was gonna tell you that, um...
Bob gave the account to Mitch.
Just in case, you know,
you were...
What, in case I...
in case I flaked?
I mean,
I'm gonna do the work.
No, Noah. I mean, we all know that you're
going through a really difficult time, and...
- You know what? It's just fine.
- just...
Really, if Bob thinks that Mitch
is qualified, that's just fine.
I'm... I'm sorry. Uh...
Obviously, you know, I'm here.
I do need some time.
Hey, I didn't mean
to talk to you like that.
It's not your fault.
It's okay.
It's just that we haven't even really
talked about what happened, and...
I just need
a little bit more time,
you know, by myself,
before I...
I just really...
I really miss
our friendship.
I miss you.
Me too.
I can't.
I'm sorry.
Do you have a restroom
or something that I could...
Um, the bathroom?
Yeah, it's, um...
It's right through there,
to the left.
Did you...
Did you say something?
Noah, I thought you said...
Sorry. What did you say?
I'm sorry.
Hey, wait.
Wait a second.
Just tell me what's wrong.
No, I gotta get outta here.
Noah, please leave
with me right now.
What? I just
got here yesterday.
I'm telling you,
there is something wrong with this cabin.
Okay, calm down, all right?
Just tell me what happened.
There was someone with me
in the bathroom.
You already know.
What do you mean?
Please get out of here.
Please, just...
just get out of here.
I'm sorry.
What the hell?
Now I just gotta
find the breakers.
Where is it?
That damn tree.
What are you hiding?
Who is this?
That really you?
Why did you do this to us?
This can't be you.
You promised
you'd love me forever.
How do you...
Damn you!
You're not Emma.
Let's see if anything
tries to stop me
from getting my ring back.
What the hell
is with this place?
Hey, Noah, hi.
It's me, your dad.
Just calling
to check up on you.
I got those pictures that you sent,
and, uh, they're really kind of...
Look, I can't talk
right now. I...
I wish I had a dime for every
time I've heard you say that.
When is ever a good time
to talk to you?
It's Emma.
She's here.
Oh, my God. Well...
Emma is dead, son.
I know that. I...
But she's here.
I can't explain it.
She can't be there
with you, son.
Please. You know,
you really need to come home.
That's what you need to do.
She's not there.
No, you're not listening to me.
Okay? I can't leave. Not yet.
She's gonna be here tomorrow.
- Emma is dead. She's gone, son.
- No...
You see this?
Do you see this?
She sent this to me yesterday.
All right?
I talked to her on the phone.
Noah, please. It's time to come home.
You need to listen to me.
I'm sorry.
I just... I can't leave.
Not yet.
I'll talk to you later.
Hey, Dad, it's me.
- Tell me that you're outta there.
- Yeah. I am.
- I got your pictures.
- What did you see?
Oh, I think you have to
see that for yourself.
- Okay.
- This can't wait till tomorrow.
Well, I'm headed back
to my apartment right now.
- I should be there in about an hour.
- I'll meet you there.
Okay. See you soon.
- All right.
- Bye.
- Dad.
- Hey.
I was worried about you.
Yeah. But I'm okay.
I'm here.
So what was it
that you... you saw?
- Remember those pictures you sent me?
- Yeah.
All right.
I've been looking at 'em.
I noticed something
very, very strange.
Yeah. Dad...
- You see what I mean?
- Dad.
I know about the shadows, okay?
That's not the only thing.
Here. Take a closer look.
Right here.
Right here.
From any angle,
there's, like, a shadow
across your throat.
Why? What do you
think they are?
I don't know what they are, but whatever
it is, it seems like some kind of threat.
Remember, I told you
that Emma was there.
Emma is nowhere near that house.
there's this, um...
There's this tree
that's behind the cabin.
I don't know. It's like
something was preventing me
from ever getting near it.
Why would you ever go back
to that house ever again,
for any reason?
Noah, it's me, Jenna.
Alan, you son of a bitch.
Where are you?
Alan, I got your text.
Alan, I know you're in there.
What the...
I can see you in there!
No. No, no, no.
I did what you asked.
No. No. I-I-I didn't
tell him anything!
I didn't know...
No, no...
Come on, Jenna.
Oh, my God.
Oh, my God.
I'm so sorry.
I'm so sorry.
You bastards.
Fuck you!
Come on!
Where is it, you bitch?
I know you have it!
I know you have it.
I know you have it.
You're Claudia.
