A Haunting (2005) s06e04 Episode Script

Haunted Victorian

Narrator: A COUPLE BUYS AN INFAMOUS VICTORIAN MANSION AND SOON DISCOVERS THEY'RE NO THE ONLY ONES LIVING THERE.
EDWIN! Narrator: GHOST HUNTERS TRY TO MAKE CONTACT WITH THE SPIRITS HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN IN THIS HOUSE? Narrator: BUT UNLEASH DEMONIC FORCES.
IS TIME RUNNING OU FOR THE LIVING OR THE DEAD? IN AMERICA, THERE IS REAL EVIL.
IT LURKS IN THE DARKEST SHADOWS AND IN OUR MOST ORDINARY TOWNS.
BETWEEN THE WORLD WE SEE AND THE THINGS WE FEAR, THERE ARE DOORS.
WHEN THEY ARE OPENED, NIGHTMARES BECOME REALITY.
-- Captions by VITAC -- CAPTIONS PAID FOR BY DISCOVERY COMMUNICATIONS FOR MORE THAN A CENTURY, GARDNER, MASSACHUSETTS, HAS BEEN KNOWN AS THE FURNITURE CAPITAL OF NEW ENGLAND.
MOGULS LIKE THE HEYWOOD BROTHERS AND SYLVESTER K.
PIERCE MADE THEIR FORTUNES HERE, BUILDING BUSINESSES AND HOMES THAT HAVE WITHSTOOD THE TEST OF TIME.
GENERATIONS HAVE LIVED AND DIED WITHIN THESE OLD WALLS.
BUT SOME OF THE DEAD HAVE NOT MOVED ON.
IN THE SUMMER OF 2008, EDWIN GONZALEZ AND LILLIAN OTERO IT'S NICE TO MEET YOU.
ARE LOOKING FOR A NEW HOME IN SOUTH GARDNER.
MY HOUSE.
[ LAUGHS ] Gonzalez: WE LIVED IN BOSTON OUR WHOLE ENTIRE LIFE AND THEN ACTUALLY CAME ACROSS THIS BEAUTIFUL MANSION ONLINE.
AND, OF COURSE, LILLIAN QUICKLY RAN TO IT.
SHE LOVES VICTORIANS.
SHE'S ALWAYS WANTED ONE.
Narrator: THE HOUSE IS A HISTORIC LANDMARK IN GARDNER.
OKAY, HERE WE ARE.
WHOA-HO! I KNOW.
ISN'T IT BEAUTIFUL? IT'S FANTASTIC.
YOU CAN REALLY SEE THE ATTENTION TO DETAIL IN A HOUSE OF THIS AGE.
Gonzalez: I FELT LIKE WE WERE GOING BACK IN TIME.
LIKE, IT WAS JUS A BEAUTIFUL, VICTORIAN MANSION.
IT WAS JUST ELABORATE.
IT HAD ALL THIS SPECTACULAR WOODWORK.
YOU CAN SEE THE STAINED-GLASS WINDOWS.
IT WAS BUILT IN 1875 BY A MAN NAMED S.
K.
PIERCE.
HE WAS QUITE AN IMPORTANT FIGURE IN TOWN.
BUILT HIS FURNITURE BUSINESS FROM THE GROUND UP, AND WHEN HE DIED, HE WAS ONE OF THE WEALTHIEST MEN IN THE COUNTY.
Gonzalez: LILLIAN WAS SO EXCITED ABOUT TAKING AS MUCH PHOTOS TO SHOW TO HER FAMILY.
I KNEW THAT THIS WAS FINALLY AN OPPORTUNITY TO HAVE ONE OF HER DREAMS COME TRUE, WHICH IS TO HAVE A BEAUTIFUL VICTORIAN.
Narrator: SHE'S ALREADY SET HER HEAR ON MOVING IN TO THE MANSION.
[ CAMERA SHUTTER CLICKS ] BUT HER PHOTO SHOOT IS CUT SHOR WHEN HER CAMERA ABRUPTLY STOPS WORKING.
THAT'S WEIRD.
Gonzalez: SHE NOTICED THA THE BATTERY LIGHT CAME ON, THAT IT NEEDED NEW BATTERIES, AND SHE WAS PUZZLED 'CAUSE SHE HAD JUST PUT IN BRAND-NEW BATTERIES.
LET ME SEE.
YEAH.
JUST STOPPED WORKING.
I WOULDN'T WORRY ABOUT IT.
YOU'LL HAVE PLENTY OF OPPORTUNITIES TO TAKE PICTURES LATER.
COME ON.
Narrator: THE COUPLE BRUSHES OFF THE INCIDENT.
LEAD THE WAY.
RIGHT THIS WAY.
IT'S BEAUTIFUL UP HERE.
YOU'RE GONNA LOVE IT.
BUT SOON, EDWIN'S GETTING STRANGE VIBES.
Gonzalez: AS I TOURED THE WHOLE HOUSE, I REMEMBER THAT, IN CERTAIN ROOMS, I HAD DIFFERENT EMOTIONS.
CERTAIN ROOMS, I FELT VERY COMFORTABLE.
IN OTHER ROOMS, I HAD, LIKE, A BAD FEELING.
NOW WE'RE TALKING.
I KNOW.
RIGHT? THE WINDOWS ARE AMAZING.
EDWIN? Gonzalez: JUST VERY NAUSEOUS, AND I THOUGHT IT WAS -- MAYBE IT'S SOMETHING I HAD EATEN OR SOMETHING.
I DIDN'T KNOW.
I COULDN'T UNDERSTAND THAT.
YEAH.
WHAT'S WRONG? NOTHING.
JUST NEED TO GET SOME AIR.
THE MINUTE I STEPPED OU OF THE ROOM, I FELT FINE.
I'M OKAY.
I'M SORRY.
I DON'T KNOW WHAT HAPPENED.
SHOULD WE GO? NO.
NO, NO, NO.
COME ON.
LET'S FINISH.
I'M OKAY.
SORRY.
I STILL, OVERALL, THOUGHT THE HOUSE WAS AMAZING, AND I KNEW THAT LILY WAS EXCITED ABOUT IT, SO I KIND OF, MORE OR LESS, JUST BRUSHED IT OFF.
Narrator: EDWIN AND LILLIAN QUICKLY MAKE A BID ON THE PROPERTY.
IT SEEMS A STEAL AT JUST UNDER $200,000.
WITHIN A MATTER OF MONTHS, THEY'VE SETTLED IN TO THEIR DREAM HOME.
[ BREATHES DEEPLY ] NOT LONG AFTER THEY MOVE IN, SOMETHING CAPTURES THE EYE OF ONE OF THEIR NEIGHBORS.
[ SIGHS ] Gonzalez: THERE'S A FRIEND OF MINE WHO LIVES NEXT DOOR.
I DIDN'T REALIZE YOU AND LILLIAN HAD A SON.
WE DON'T.
I JUST THEN WHO IS THAT I SAW DARTING BETWEEN THE WINDOWS UPSTAIRS? UH, MIKE, THERE HAVEN'T BEEN ANY KIDS THERE SINCE WE MOVED IN.
AND HE GOES, "EVERY SO OFTEN, "I SEE THEM RUNNING BACK AND FORTH.
"I SEE THEM ON THESE TWO WINDOWS OVER HERE.
"THEN ALL OF A SUDDEN, I SEE THEM IN THE OTHER TWO WINDOWS ON THE OTHER SIDE.
" THERE'S NO WAY THAT YOU COULD SEE A LITTLE BOY IN THESE TWO WINDOWS AND, ALL OF A SUDDEN, SEE HIM THE OTHER WAY.
HE WOULD LITERALLY HAVE TO GO THROUGH TWO WALLS AND A STAIRCASE.
I GUESS I'M JUST TIRED.
BOTH LILLIAN AND I THOUGHT, "WELL, MAYBE HE WAS JUST SEEING SOMETHING," AND WE KIND OF, MORE OR LESS, REALLY DIDN'T PAY TOO MUCH MIND TO WHAT HE WAS SAYING.
Narrator: WEEKS PASS QUIETLY, AND THE SIGHTING IS ALL BUT FORGOTTEN.
[ WIND WHISTLING ] [ WHISTLING STOPS ] [ SIGHS ] [ SNIFFS ] [ DOOR CREAKS, SLAMS ] Gonzalez: THE DOOR JUST SLAMMED ON ITS OWN.
STAY THERE.
THERE WAS NOBODY THERE, BUT WE COULDN'T FIGURE OU WHAT CAUSED THE DOOR TO SLAM.
THESE ARE BIG DOORS THAT DON'T SLAM ON THEIR OWN.
THEY USUALLY TAKE A LOT OF FORCE JUST TO SWING THEM.
[ LIGHT SWITCH CLICKS ] [ SIGHS ] I KIND OF JUST TRIED TO FORGET ABOUT IT, TRIED TO RELAX, AND WENT BACK TO BED.
[ BIRDS CHIRPING ] Narrator: IT'S 5:00 A.
M.
THE FOLLOWING MORNING.
[ DOORBELL RINGS ] EDDIE, SOMEONE'S AT THE DOOR.
MM.
WHO WOULD BE UP THIS EARLY? MAYBE IT'S THE HEATING GUYS.
[ KNOCK ON DOOR ] WHAT THE HELL? [ POUNDING ON DOOR ] Gonzalez: THERE WAS NOBODY THERE.
YOU KIND OF START QUESTIONING, LIKE, "WHAT IS GOING ON IN THIS HOUSE?" Narrator: A FEW NIGHTS LATER, EDWIN IS ALONE IN HIS HOME OFFICE.
[ GASPS ] Narrator: IN 2008, EDWIN GONZALEZ AND LILLIAN OTERO HAVE JUST PURCHASED A HISTORIC, 26-ROOM VICTORIAN MANSION IN GARDNER, MASSACHUSETTS.
BUT THEIR DREAM HOME IS QUICKLY BECOMING A NIGHTMARE.
[ DOOR SLAMS ] A NEIGHBOR SEES A YOUNG BOY IN UPSTAIRS WINDOWS, BUT THE COUPLE HAS NO CHILDREN.
AND NOW EDWIN IS FACE TO FACE WITH SOMETHING EVIL.
[ GASPS ] WHEN I TURNED TO LOOK, THERE WAS NO ONE THERE.
THERE WAS NOTHING THERE.
I THINK THAT WAS A TURNING POINT, WHEN YOU PHYSICALLY SEE SOMETHING IN FRONT OF YOU THAT YOU CAN'T EXPLAIN.
IT LEAVES SUCH A DEEP IMPRIN THAT ALL YOUR -- WHAT YOUR BELIEFS ARE COMPLETELY HAS CHANGED.
Narrator: EDWIN CAN NO LONGER DENY THAT SOMETHING PARANORMAL IS GOING ON IN HIS HOME.
[ SIGHS ] Narrator: IN HOPES OF LEARNING IF THE HOUSE HAS A HISTORY OF BEING HAUNTED, EDWIN CONTACTS THE PREVIOUS OWNER.
HI.
MY NAME'S EDWIN GONZALEZ.
I'M THE CURRENT OWNER OF YOUR OLD HOUSE.
I DON'T KNOW HOW TO QUITE PUT THIS.
DID ANYTHING STRANGE EVER HAPPEN, OR DID YOU EVER EXPERIENCE ANYTHING WEIRD HERE? HE STARTED TELLING ME ABOUT SPECIFIC THINGS THAT HE KNEW ABOUT THE HOUSE, THE HISTORY.
HE GOES, "I DON'T KNOW IF YOU KNOW THIS, "BUT THERE WAS A MAN WHO BURNED TO DEATH IN YOUR MASTER BEDROOM.
" Narrator: THE PREVIOUS OWNER TELLS EDWIN TO SEEK OUT A BOOK CALLED "HAUNTED MASSACHUSETTS" FOR MORE ANSWERS.
Gonzalez: AND THERE WAS OUR HOUSE.
Narrator: THE BOOK'S AUTHOR IS PARANORMAL INVESTIGATOR THOMAS D'AGOSTINO.
THE HOUSE WAS BUILT IN 1875 BY FURNITURE MOGUL S.
K.
PIERCE.
IT WAS BUIL IN THE COURSE OF NINE MONTHS USING 200 WORKERS WORKING AROUND THE CLOCK, 24/7.
IT WAS CONSIDERED A MODERN MARVEL OF ITS TIME.
SHORTLY AFTER THE HOME WAS BUILT, S.
K.
PIERCE'S WIFE PASSED AWAY IN THE HOUSE.
IT WAS TAKEN OVER BY HIS SONS, FRANK AND STEWART, AND STEWART LATER TRANSFERRED THE HOUSE TO EDWARD PIERCE IN 1929.
THAT WOULD BE ABOUT THE TIME OF THE GREAT DEPRESSION.
HE HAD TO FIND SOME WAY TO AUGMENT THEIR INCOME, SO THE HOME BECAME A BOARDING HOUSE AROUND THEN.
Narrator: THERE WAS A BIZARRE TRAGEDY IN 1963 INVOLVING A TENANT.
D'Agostino: 48-YEAR-OLD EINO SAARI DIED IN THE HOME.
THE OFFICIAL REPOR WAS THAT HE HAD DIED FROM SMOKE INHALATION AND THIRD-DEGREE BURNS, BUT LEGEND HAS I THAT SPONTANEOUSLY COMBUSTED.
Gonzalez: THAT'S WHEN I CAME TO THE CONCLUSION THE PERSON THAT I SAW WAS EINO SAARI.
Narrator: MEANWHILE, LILLIAN'S AT HOME, ALONE.
[ DOOR CREAKS ] EDWIN? IS THAT YOU, HON? [ RATTLING ] [ FAINT GROWLING ] [ GASPS ] DON'T SNEAK UP ON ME LIKE THAT, EDWIN.
THERE WAS SOMETHING GROWLING AT ME.
YOU DO BELIEVE ME, DON'T YOU? I THINK WE NEED TO FIND SOMEONE WHO KNOWS MORE ABOUT THIS STUFF THAN WE DO.
LOOK.
THIS IS WHAT I FOUND.
OUR HOUSE IS IN THIS BOOK.
SO, OUR HOUSE IS REALLY HAUNTED? I DON'T KNOW.
BUT IT'S A PLACE TO START.
THAT'S WHEN I DECIDED TO GO AHEAD AND REACH OU AND SPEAK TO THOMAS REGARDING HIS FINDINGS.
Narrator: EDWIN INVITES THE AUTHOR TO THE HOUSE TO CONDUC A PARANORMAL INVESTIGATION.
WE SET UP CAMERAS IN ALL THE ROOMS, AND WE PUT RECORDERS, AS WELL, IN ALL THE ROOMS SO WE CAN CAPTURE ANY KIND OF ACTIVITY, VISUAL OR AUDIO.
Narrator: THOMAS IS ACCOMPANIED BY HIS WIFE, ARLENE, A SPIRITUAL MEDIUM.
D'Agostino: WELL, WE WERE LOOKING FOR E.
V.
P.
s -- ELECTRONIC VOICE PHENOMENON.
OKAY.
YOU READY? YES.
[ DEVICE BEEPS ] OKAY.
GO.
I'M REACHING OU TO EINO SAARI.
EINO, ARE YOU HERE? ARE THERE ANY CHILDREN IN THE HOUSE WITH YOU? CAN YOU SHOW US THAT YOU'RE HERE WITH US NOW? [ CLATTERING IN DISTANCE ] SOMETHING KICKED THE CAMERA IN THE MASTER BEDROOM.
Together: I HEREBY BANISH ALL NEGATIVITY FROM THIS SPACE.
ONLY POSITIVE LIGHT Narrator: THEY CLEANSE THE HOME WITH SAGE, A NATIVE-AMERICAN RITUAL THAT HELPS TO BANISH OR CONTROL SPIRITS.
YOU NEED TO DO THIS EVERY NIGHT.
YOU HAVE TO ASSERT YOUR AUTHORITY OVER THIS HOUSE.
DON'T BE AFRAID OF IT.
D'Agostino: AND THEN WE SUGGESTED THAT THEY CLEANSE THE HOME IN THEIR OWN WAY, IN THEIR OWN PRAYERS, IN A POSITIVE MANNER REGULARLY.
Gonzalez: I FELT REALLY RELIEVED, BUT AT THE SAME TIME, I WAS ALSO VERY SCARED BECAUSE THIS THING IS FOR REAL.
WE'LL FIGURE IT OUT.
[ SIGHS ] Narrator: EDWIN AND LILLIAN TAKE HIS ADVICE AND TRY TO REMAIN POSITIVE.
A FEW NIGHTS LATER [ INDISTINCT TALKING ON TV ] [ SLOW FOOTSTEPS IN DISTANCE ] LIL? [ REMOTE CONTROL CLICKS, TV AUDIO SHUTS OFF ] EDWIN! [ DOOR CREAKS, SLAMS ] Narrator: EDWIN GONZALEZ AND LILLIAN OTERO ARE EXPERIENCING TERRIFYING PARANORMAL ENCOUNTERS [ GASPS ] IN THE VICTORIAN MANSION THEY RECENTLY BOUGH IN GARDNER, MASSACHUSETTS.
THEIR HOME IS FEATURED IN A BOOK OF HAUNTED HOUSES.
THE COUPLE BELIEVES THERE ARE MULTIPLE SPIRITS, INCLUDING A MISCHIEVOUS BOY AND A MAN THAT BURNED TO DEATH IN THEIR MASTER BEDROOM.
Man: AAH! Narrator: NOW SOMETHING IS ON THE MOVE.
EDWIN! LILLIAN! LILLIAN! WHAT HAPPENED? THE DOOR JUST SLAMMED.
AND I THOUGH THERE WAS SOMEBODY IN HERE.
COME ON.
LET'S GO DOWNSTAIRS.
I DON'T WANT YOU UP HERE ALONE.
[ GLASS SHATTERS ] WHAT IS THAT? DID YOU HEAR THAT? I THINK THERE'S SOMEONE IN THE KITCHEN.
[ CRIES ] [ GLASS SHATTERING ] [ GASPS ] IT'S OKAY, COME ON.
[ SHATTERING CONTINUES ] ARE YOU READY? OKAY.
ON THE COUNT OF THREE.
ONETWOTHREE.
Narrator: THERE'S NOTHING BROKEN.
"WHAT DID IT ALL MEAN?" KIND OF LIKE WHAT RATTLES IN MY MIND.
WHAT DOES IT MEAN WHEN A DOOR IS CLOSING? WHAT DOES IT MEAN THAT THE CUPS ARE BEING THROWN? IS IT ONE SPIRIT? IS IT A SERIES OF SPIRITS? ARE THEY ANGRY? COME ON.
Narrator: THE TROUBLING EVENTS IN THE HOUSE ARE STARTING TO RULE THEIR LIVES.
EDWIN AND LILLIAN ARE DESPERATE FOR ANSWERS.
[ DOORBELL RINGS ] ARE YOU THE OWNER OF THE HOUSE? UH, YEAH.
YOU ARE? MY NAME IS BILL WALLACE.
I KNEW THE FORMER OWNER, DAVE.
I'D LIKE TO TALK TO YOU ABOUT YOUR HOUSE.
OKAY.
THE ARRIVAL IS OUT OF THE BLUE TO EDWIN, BUT BILL IS A SPIRITUAL EMPATH AND HAS VISITED THE HOUSE MANY TIMES BEFORE.
I KNEW WHO HE WAS BECAUSE THE PREVIOUS OWNER HAD TOLD ME ABOUT HAVING BILL AT THE HOUSE BEFORE AND HOW HE'S ABLE TO COMMUNICATE WITH CERTAIN ENTITIES THAT ARE AT THE HOUSE.
OH.
SHE'S DOING A REALLY GOOD JOB.
WHO IS? MAGGIE.
HE SAID THERE WAS ONE IN PARTICULAR WHO WAS VERY PROTECTIVE OF THE HOUSE, AND SHE WAS ALMOST LIKE A MOTHERLY FIGURE.
SHE WAS OVERSEEING EVERYTHING IN THE HOUSE.
FOR YEARS, MAGGIE WAS THE NANNY FOR S.
K.
PIERCE'S CHILDREN.
SHE PROTECTED THEM, AND NOW SHE'S TRYING TO PROTECT YOU.
PROTECT US? FROM WHAT? FROM THE OTHERS.
THE OTHER SPIRITS.
Narrator: BEFORE EDWIN'S PREDECESSOR BOUGHT THE HOUSE IN 2000, IT WAS EMPTY FOR QUITE SOME TIME.
I SPOKE TO THEM ABOU "HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED WHY, "AFTER THIS HOUSE BEING FALLOW FOR 20 YEARS, "THERE'S NO VANDALISM? THAT'S MAGGIE.
" AND I JUST -- I THOUGH YOU SHOULD KNOW THAT.
THANK YOU.
Narrator: BILL HAS WANDERED THE VICTORIAN HOUSE MANY TIMES BEFORE AND SENSED EVIL AND TORMENT.
I KNEW THAT THERE WAS SOMETHING NASTY IN THE CELLAR.
I KNEW THERE WAS SOMETHING NASTY ON THE SECOND FLOOR.
I KNEW THERE WAS A CHILD WHO HAD BEEN ABUSED TERRIBLY IN LIFE, AND WAS STILL BEING ABUSED BY SOMEBODY IN THE HOUSE AS A SPIRIT.
WE MAY HAVE TO LEARN TO LIVE WITH THIS.
BUT IF THINGS GET WORSE, WHAT ARE WE SUPPOSED TO DO THEN? I DON'T KNOW.
WELL, I THINK WE SHOULD PROBABLY GET MORE INVESTIGATORS.
MAYBE SOMEONE CAN HELP US FIGURE OU WHAT'S WRONG WITH THIS HOUSE.
BOTH LILY AND I WERE DETERMINED THAT WE WERE GONNA MAKE THIS WORK EVEN THOUGH WE WERE ENCOUNTERING ALL THESE DIFFERENT THINGS THAT WERE HAPPENING.
THIS IS OUR DREAM HOME, AND WE'RE NO GONNA GIVE UP ON IT.
I'M JUST NOT READY TO LEAVE, THEN.
Narrator: AFTER 10 TERRIFYING MONTHS, EDWIN AND LILLIAN DECIDE TO HOLD AN OPEN HOUSE FOR PARANORMAL INVESTIGATORS, BELIEVING IT WILL HELP THEM UNDERSTAND WHAT'S HAPPENING.
WE THOUGHT IT WAS A GOOD IDEA BECAUSE WE WERE SEARCHING FOR ANSWERS.
[ DOORBELL RINGS ] SO WE ALLOWED THEM TO COME IN.
HEY, JOHN.
HEY.
HOW YOU DOING? THANKS FOR COMING.
WE'RE STILL EXPECTING A FEW MORE PEOPLE.
Narrator: PARANORMAL INVESTIGATOR JOHN BRIGHTMAN AGREES TO COORDINATE THE EVENT.
I JUST TOLD HIM, "I HAVE A VERY STRICT POLICY -- NO OUIJA BOARDS.
" I DON'T WAN TO BE A PART OF THA AND HAVE SOMETHING COME INTO THE HOUSE THAT COULD ACTUALLY HURT THEM EVEN MORE THAN WHAT'S THERE.
Man and woman: SATANAS, SANCTUS.
Narrator: GROUPS OF INVESTIGATORS SET UP IN DIFFERENT ROOMS.
Man and woman: SANCTUS SATANAS, SANCTUS.
A COUPLE IN THE CELLAR BREAKS THE RULES BY SNEAKING IN A PAPER VERSION OF THE SPIRIT BOARD AND DABBLING IN SATANISM.
Together: SANCTUS SATANAS, SANCTUS.
SANCTUS SATANAS, SANCTUS.
Narrator: UP IN THE MASTER BEDROOM, JOHN BRIGHTMAN IS LEADING ANOTHER TEAM.
I'M GONNA BE STARTING SOON, SO QUIET, PLEASE.
WE WERE ASKING THE SPIRI TO COMMUNICATE WITH US THROUGH THE DIFFERENT EQUIPMENT, THROUGH THE AUDIO RECORDING.
WE HAD WHAT WE CALLED AN OVILUS, WHICH IS A VOICE BOX THAT ACTUALLY SPITS WORDS OU THAT THE SPIRITS CAN MANIPULATE AND USE.
Narrator: HE'S TRYING TO COMMUNICATE WITH THE GHOST OF EINO SAARI, WHO DIED IN THE HOUSE.
ARE YOU EINO SAARI? WHAT YEAR WERE YOU BORN? HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN IN THIS HOUSE? IF I'M NOT GETTING A RESPONSE, I TRY TO BE MORE ASSERTIVE AND PUSH THE ENVELOPE.
EINO, I UNDERSTAND YOU DON'T LIKE I WHEN STRANGERS SIT ON THIS BED.
I THINK I MIGH STAY THE NIGHT HERE, EINO.
WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THAT? AAH! [ DOOR CREAKS, SLAMS ] Narrator: AFTER EXPERIENCING A SERIES OF TROUBLING EVENTS EDWIN! [ DOOR SLAMS ] LILLIAN! EDWIN GONZALEZ AND LILLIAN OTERO HAVE INVITED TEAMS OF PARANORMAL EXPERTS INTO THEIR VICTORIAN HOME.
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN IN THIS HOUSE? Together: SANCTUS SATANAS, SANCTUS.
Narrator: IN THE BASEMENT, TWO INVESTIGATORS ARE TAKING A FORBIDDEN APPROACH, USING A SPIRIT BOARD TO PRACTICE SATANISM.
Together: SANCTUS SATANAS, SANCTUS.
EINO, I UNDERSTAND YOU DON'T LIKE I WHEN STRANGERS SIT ON THIS BED.
Narrator: MEANWHILE, JOHN BRIGHTMAN AND HIS TEAM HAVE BEEN TRYING TO PROVOKE A GHOST TO REVEAL ITSELF.
I THINK I MIGH STAY THE NIGHT HERE, EINO.
WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THAT? AAH! [ BREATHING HEAVILY ] SOMETHING ATTACKED ME.
OH, MY GOSH.
SQUEEZE EVERY THROA IN THIS HOUSE.
WE NEED TO GET OUT OF HERE NOW! THEY GOT A RECORDING FROM THE OVILUS BOX THAT SAID, "SQUEEZE EVERY THROA IN THIS HOUSE.
" EDWIN! YEAH.
YOU NEED TO SEE SOMETHING.
WHAT IS IT? OH, MY -- [ GASPS ] THERE WAS THREE LARGE SCRATCHES GOING UP THE SIDE OF HIS STOMACH.
H-HOW DID THAT HAPPEN? WHAT HAPPENED TO YOUR EYE? SOMETHING HIT ME, PUNCHED ME IN THE FACE.
I THINK WE NEED TO STOP.
I DON'T THINK THIS WAS SUCH A GREAT IDEA.
OKAY, YEAH.
I'M GONNA TELL THE REST OF THE GROUPS THAT IT'S TIME TO LEAVE.
IN 10 YEARS, THE MOST I'VE HAD HAPPEN TO ME IS MAYBE A LITTLE TUG OF A SHIR OR A DOOR SLAM ON ME, HEAR A VOICE.
THAT'S NORMAL OCCURRENCES.
BUT TO BE PHYSICALLY ATTACKED LIKE THIS AND HAVE SOMETHING TOUCH YOU THE WAY IT DID, IT'S SCARY.
[ SOBS ] HEY.
SORRY, GUYS.
I -- LOOK, OPEN HOUSE IS OVER.
WE NEED TO LEAVE.
NOW.
NOBODY REALLY TECHNICALLY HELPED US.
IT JUST BASICALLY LEFT US THE SAME WAY.
THEY CAME IN, THEY GOT SOME EVIDENCE, AND THEN THEY LEFT, AND THEY LEFT US WITH NO ANSWERS.
Narrator: AFTER WHAT'S JUST HAPPENED, EDWIN DECIDES IT'S UNSAFE TO HOLD ANY FUTURE PARANORMAL-INVESTIGATION NIGHTS AND NOW ONLY ALLOWS A SELECT GROUP TO VISIT, INCLUDING GOOD FRIEND BOB PFEIFFER.
SO, THIS IS WHERE THE INVESTIGATOR TEAM WAS SET UP.
HE'S HOPING FOR HIS OWN GHOST ENCOUNTER.
WHAT'S THAT? IT'S A KILN.
KIND OF LIKE AN OLD OVEN.
SOMEONE ACTUALLY DREW A OUIJA BOARD.
THAT'S WHEN I KNEW THAT THE GROUPS WEREN'T REALLY TRYING TO HELP US OUT.
THEY WERE ACTUALLY JUST TRYING TO CONJURE UP AS MUCH ACTION AS THEY CAN.
I FELT A FINGER GO RIGHT DOWN MY NECK.
THERE WAS NOBODY THERE.
ARE YOU OKAY? YEAH.
LET'S GO.
COME ON.
I DECIDED, FOR JUST A LITTLE BIT, HANG OUT IN THE LOBBY ON THE SECOND FLOOR, JUST TO SEE IF I COULD EXPERIENCE ANYTHING.
[ DOOR CREAKING ] I JUST REMEMBER BEING IN A STATE OF PANIC AND FRIGHT, AND I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT TO DO.
BOB? YOU OKAY? BOB? HEY.
[ SNAPS FINGERS ] YOU ALL RIGHT, MAN? BOB.
I TRIED TO TELL MY LEGS TO MOVE, AND JUST I WAS NOT MOVING.
WHOA, WHOA, WHOA.
HO, HO.
WHAT HAPPENED? I THINK HE FAINTED, ALMOST FAINTED.
OH.
IS HE DIABETIC? NO, I DON'T THINK SO.
[ SNAPS FINGERS ] BOB, BOB.
BOB? [ Muffled ] BOB? ARE YOU OKAY? BOB? BOB? Narrator: AS SOON AS LILLIAN TOUCHES BOB, HE FEELS NORMAL AGAIN.
I JUST REMEMBER INSTANTLY, JUST LIKE THAT, I WAS FEELING GREAT AGAIN.
I THINK I SHOULD GO HOME.
Narrator: NOW LILLIAN'S ALL ALONE IN THE HOUSE.
[ BREATHING HEAVILY ] [ GASPING ] Narrator: EDWIN GONZALEZ AND LILLIAN OTERO ARE ON THE VERGE OF ABANDONING THEIR ONCE DREAM VICTORIAN HOME [ GLASS SHATTERING ] AFTER A SERIES OF FRIGHTENING ENCOUNTERS WITH SPIRITS.
NOW LILLIAN IS UNDER ATTACK.
[ BREATHING HEAVILY ] [ BODY THUDS ] [ SIGHS ] [ DOOR CLOSES ] LILLIAN? YOU ALL RIGHT, BABE? JUST TIRED.
ME, TOO.
COME ON.
LET'S GO TO BED.
NO, I THINK I'LL STAY HERE FOR A WHILE.
ARE YOU SURE? I LOVE YOU.
Narrator: EDWIN NOTICES A DRAMATIC CHANGE IN LILLIAN, WHO BECOMES INCREASINGLY WITHDRAWN AND UNSTABLE.
Gonzalez: I WAS STARTING TO LOSE HER.
SHE WAS SLIPPING AWAY.
I DIDN'T HAVE ANY ANSWERS.
I HAD NO ONE TO TURN TO.
I JUST WANTED HER TO GET BETTER.
I DIDN'T WANT HER TO GO THROUGH ANY MORE PAIN OR WHATEVER SHE WAS GOING THROUGH.
SHE WAS BECOMING MORE EXHAUSTED, SITTING ON THE COUCH ALL DAY LONG.
SHE WOULDN'T EAT ALL DAY.
I THOUGHT, "WELL, THIS IS REALLY THE HOUSE THAT'S AFFECTING HER.
" Narrator: LILLIAN CONTINUES TO GROW MORE AND MORE DEPRESSED AND WITHDRAWN.
EDWIN, TOO, FINDS HIMSELF EMOTIONALLY CHALLENGED BY THE HOUSE.
[ YAWNS ] Gonzalez: I DIDN'T KNOW IF I HAD JUST HAD A DREAM.
I WAS SO OVERWHELMED WITH THE FEELING OF SADNESS AND GRIEF, LIKE AS THOUGH SHE HAD LOST SOMEONE, AND THE ONLY THING I COULD RELATE TO THA IS WHEN MY FATHER PASSED AWAY, FEELING THAT SAME EMOTION.
AND IT JUST HAPPENED ALL OVER AGAIN.
Narrator: NOW AT HIS WIT'S END WITH ALL THE ANGUISH, EDWIN CALLS IN AN EXORCIST.
[ GASPING ] HE FELT THAT HE, INDEED, GOT RID OF A VERY POWERFUL SPIRI THAT WAS AT THE HOUSE.
I THINK MAYBE WE'LL BE FINE NOW, THAT EVERYTHING WILL BE BACK TO NORMAL.
Narrator: A FEW DAYS OF PEACE PASS.
HON, WHAT ARE YOU DOING? LILLIAN.
HEY.
DON'T TOUCH ME! LEAVE ME ALONE! LET ME FINISH! Gonzalez: I KNEW THAT THIS WAS NOT LILLIAN.
THERE WAS SOMETHING ELSE THAT'S TRYING TO GET AHOLD OF HER.
GET OUT! GET OUT! I KNEW THAT THIS WAS BECOMING SCARIER NOW BECAUSE NOW IT'S USING HER BODY TO MAKE IT DO SOMETHING.
AND I WAS LIKE, "IF IT'S ABLE TO DO THIS, WHAT ELSE COULD IT MAKE HER DO?" WHAT IS THAT? SHE FOUND A NEWSPAPER CLIPPING.
IN THE EARLY 1900s, THERE WERE SEVERAL CHILDREN THAT DROWNED ON THE PROPERTY.
AFTER READING THE ARTICLE, I THINK THAT GAVE AN EXPLANATION OF WHY WE WERE SEEING A CHILD'S SPIRIT AT THE HOUSE.
Narrator: THE WAY LILLIAN UNEARTHED THIS NEW INFORMATION DOES LITTLE TO CALM EDWIN'S FEARS ABOUT THE HOUSE.
SEVERAL NIGHTS LATER [ KNOCK ON DOOR ] BILL.
HI, EDWIN.
SORRY TO BOTHER YOU SO LATE, BUT IT'S IMPORTANT.
I BELIEVE LILLIAN IS IN DANGER.
BILL, THE EMPATH FAMILIAR WITH THE HOME, PAYS ANOTHER SURPRISE VISI WHEN HE SENSES A CHANGE WITH THE HOUSE.
SHE'S GONE.
LILLIAN'S IN THE DINING ROOM.
NO, NOT LILLIAN.
MAGGIE.
MAGGIE'S GONE.
WHAT -- WHAT HAVE YOU DONE? MAGGIE, THE GUARDIAN SPIRIT, WASN'T THERE ANYMORE.
HE TOLD ME, "SOMEBODY HAD COME IN AND DONE A CLEANSING.
" AND APPARENTLY LED MAGGIE, THE GUARDIAN SPIRI OF THE HOUSE, OUT THE DOOR.
AND I WAS MORTIFIED.
FOR THE VERY FIRST TIME EVER, I WAS AFRAID TO BE IN THAT HOUSE.
LILLIAN? LOOK WHO'S HERE.
HOW YOU FEELING, LILLIAN? Narrator: IN GARDNER, MASSACHUSETTS EDWIN GONZALEZ AND LILLIAN OTERO ARE BEING TERRORIZED IN THEIR 18th-CENTURY HOME THAT HAS BEEN THE SITE OF SEVERAL GRUESOME DEATHS.
Man: AAH! Narrator: EMPATH BILL WALLACE SENSES THAT A GHOST CALLED MAGGIE, WHO PROTECTS THE HOUSE FROM EVIL SPIRITS, WAS INADVERTENTLY DRIVEN OU BY AN EXORCISM, AND NOW THE COUPLE IS IN DANGER.
LILLIAN? LOOK WHO'S HERE.
HOW YOU FEELING, LILLIAN? THERE WAS SOMEONE STANDING BEHIND HER, WITH HER HAND ON LILLIAN'S SHOULDER.
Gonzalez: HE SAID SHE'S FROM THE VICTORIAN TIME AND THAT SHE IS TRYING TO HARM LILLIAN.
[ Distorted ] HE DOESN'T CARE WHAT HAPPENS TO ME AT ALL.
HE DOESN'T TOUCH ME.
HE DOESN'T MOVE ME.
LILLIAN WAS MAD.
"HE DIDN'T TOUCH ME.
"HE DIDN'T COME DOWN TO SEE IF I WAS OKAY.
HE DIDN'T DO ANYTHING.
" AND THE MORE SHE SAID IT, THE DEEPER THE GROWL GOT IN HER VOICE.
EDWIN LILLIAN REALLY NEEDS YOU RIGHT NOW.
I NEED TO TELL YOU ABOUT THE COUPLE WHO LIVED IN THIS HOUSE BEFORE YOU.
I KNEW THEM, AND, UH WHEN I FIRST MET THEM, THEY WERE ABSOLUTELY, MADLY IN LOVE WITH EACH OTHER.
BUT AFTER TWO YEARS OF LIVING IN THIS HOUSE, THEY COULDN'T STAND TO BE IN THE SAME ROOM TOGETHER.
YOU CAN'T LET THAT HAPPEN TO YOU.
WE HAVE TO FIGHT THIS.
YOU HAVE TO FIGHT I TOGETHER.
THAT'S THE ONLY WAY.
SOMETHING OF LILLIAN, AT THAT MOMENT, FOUGHT ITS WAY TO THE SURFACE AND LOOKED AT HER HUSBAND AND SAW HIM.
SO HOW DO WE FIGHT THIS THING? WELL, UP UNTIL NOW, MAGGIE HAS BEEN PROTECTING YOU.
BUT MAGGIE'S GONE.
NOW IT'S UP TO YOU.
YOU HAVE TO USE YOUR FAITH.
I MUST HAVE SAID I A THOUSAND DIFFERENT WAYS -- "YOU HAVE TO FIND SOMETHING TO BELIEVE IN.
" OKAY.
HE SAYS, "YOU NEED TO FIND THA AND FIND THAT QUICKLY.
OTHERWISE, THE HOUSE IS GONNA TEAR YOU DOWN.
" HOW ARE WE SUPPOSED TO LIVE LIKE THIS? I DON'T THINK WE CAN.
SHOULD WE LEAVE? I DON'T KNOW.
I DON'T KNOW.
LET'S GO TO BED.
OKAY.
[ GASPS ] GET AWAY FROM ME! NO! GET AWAY FROM ME! NO! NO! LILLIAN, WHAT IS IT?! AAH! GET IT OFF OF ME! [ CRYING ] Shh! IT'S GONE.
Shh.
WHAT -- WHAT HAPPENED? I JUST HELD HER, AND I TOLD HER, "IT'LL BE OKAY.
" THAT'S IT.
WE'RE GETTING OUT OF HERE RIGHT NOW.
IT'S ONE THING THAT YOU TRY TO FIGHT IT, BUT WHEN IT'S AFFECTING THE PERSON YOU LOVE MORE, YEAH, THAT'S WHEN [CLEARS THROAT] [ SNIFFLES ] YEAH.
I-I DON'T WANT TO SEE ANYTHING LIKE THAT HAPPEN TO HER.
COME ON.
COME ON.
IT'S ONE THING WHEN YOU COULD DEAL WITH IT, BUT WHEN IT'S AFFECTING HER? SHE MEANS EVERYTHING TO ME, SO I JUST -- I JUST CAN'T DEAL WITH THAT, SO WE JUST LEFT.
Wallace: WHEN I FOUND OU THAT EDWIN AND LILLIAN WERE NO LONGER GONNA BE LIVING AT THE VIC, I WAS JUST RELIEVED, HAPPY FOR THEM, JUST THRILLED THAT THEY WOULDN'T HAVE THAT KIND OF A PRESSURE ON THEIR RELATIONSHIP ANYMORE.
I THINK IT'S THE BEST THING THEY EVER COULD HAVE DONE.
Gonzalez: I FELT THAT I COULD NO PROTECT HER THAT LAST MONTH.
THERE WAS TOO MANY THINGS THAT WAS GOING ON THAT WAS AFFECTING US PHYSICALLY, MENTALLY, AND IT WAS ONE AFTER ANOTHER.
IT'S JUST NOT WORTH IT ANYMORE.
YOU JUST WALK AWAY AND WE HAD SO MANY HOPES AND DREAMS THAT WE COULD DO WITH THE HOUSE.
WE ENVISIONED THE HOUSE BEING BROUGHT BACK TO THE WAY IT USED TO BE, AND, UNFORTUNATELY WE KIND OF LOST OUR DREAMS.
Narrator: LILLIAN REMAINS FEARFUL OF THE SPIRITS THEY ENCOUNTERED AND CHOSE NOT TO BE INTERVIEWED.
BILL WALLACE BELIEVES LILLIAN WAS BEING POSSESSED BY ABIGAIL THE SPIRIT OF A FORMER SERVAN WHO ONCE WORKED IN THE MANSION.
IF LOOKS COULD KILL, I WOULD HAVE JOINED HER ON THE OTHER SIDE AT THAT MOMENT.
THAT'S WHEN I TOLD THEM THAT WAS A VERY DANGEROUS PLACE TO BE.
Together: I HEREBY BANISH ALL NEGATIVITY FROM THIS SPACE.
Narrator: HISTORIAN AND PARANORMAL INVESTIGATOR THOMAS D'AGOSTINO BELIEVES THE HOUSE HAS HAD NEGATIVE ENERGY ALMOST FROM THE DAY IT WAS BUILT.
S.
K.
PIERCE'S FIRST WIFE HAD A DREAM OF LIVING IN THIS BEAUTIFUL HOME AND BARELY GOT TO LIVE THERE A YEAR BEFORE SHE PASSED AWAY, MUCH LIKE LILLIAN, WHO HAD A DREAM OF MOVING OUT OF THE CITY TO THIS BEAUTIFUL HOME, AND THEY BARELY LIVED THERE A FEW YEARS BEFORE THEY HAD TO LEAVE, AS WELL.
Gonzalez: WE DECIDED TO STAY WITH LILLIAN'S SISTER, AND IT WAS LIKE EVERYTHING WAS FINE AGAIN.
WE FELT SO MUCH BETTER MENTALLY, PHYSICALLY.
WE WERE HAPPY AGAIN.
HEY.
I'M GONNA GO SWING BY THE HOUSE REAL QUICK.
IS THERE ANYTHING YOU NEED ME TO GET? NO, I'M GOOD.
I LOVE YOU.
LOVE YOU, TOO.
Narrator: IT'S BEEN THREE YEARS SINCE EDWIN AND LILLIAN MOVED OUT OF THE VICTORIAN, BUT EVEN NOW, THEY STILL CAN'T BEAR TO PART WITH IT.
Gonzalez: IN THE BACK OF MY MIND, I ALWAYS HOPE AND PRAY THAT WE CAN HAVE THE HOUSE OF OUR DREAMS BACK AGAIN.
THAT'S WHAT WE'RE HOPING FOR.
[ TELEVISION TURNS ON ] COME BACK.
