1 (thunk) (grunt) DOMINIC: Oh, fuck.
Oh, shit.
Oh, Shit! What the fuck was that? You know what that was.
Dominic you've played this scene before.
I did not sign up for this shit! Sidney said if if I played a-a good villain, I'd get my own spin-off.
I am not getting killed over no damn TV show.
Do you hear me, Sidney? Get us the fuck out of here! Sidney's not coming.
Nobody is coming.
You don't know what those monsters can do.
Oh, shit.
Oh, fuck! Look at that.
Oh, shit.
Oh, shit.
This is insane.
This is insane.
Oh, no.
Oh, sh-shit! What are we going to do? What are we gonna do, Shelby? The tunnel.
Come on.
Keep your eyes open-- they could already be inside.
(door opens) (door closes) (whispering): Shelby Shelby.
Shelby, Shelby.
We have to go.
Shelby.
Shelby, we have to go.
Come on.
Come on, Shelby.
Come on.
Come on.
Flashlight.
Flashlight.
Ah! There's something There's something.
It might be Edward.
He actually could help.
What the fuck is that? It's the Chens.
Oh, shit.
No, no, no! To make real thin slices your edge got to be sharp as a razor.
Slide the blade against the stone like this.
JETHER: It's awake.
(thump) Pay attention! I'm doing this for your sake.
Now, which part of it tastes the best? I'm not an "it.
" I'm a human being.
I don't remember, Mama.
You set that damn thing down.
Why the hell you always taking pictures? Me and Lot play it back for fun.
Mm-hmm.
And do you touch your privates while you watch? Now, you take this knife here and just cut your mama some nice filet.
Please don't do this.
People don't eat people.
If you ain't Polk You ain't people.
That's right, Jether.
Tell it our family history.
(scoffs) I ain't good at old stories, Mama.
Oh, come on, now.
Here you are.
It was the depression.
Everybody was broke.
Weren't nothing for nobody to eat.
Only thing plentiful were the itinerant hobos.
They was on our land.
Stealing what little we had.
They slaughtered our last pig.
Had themselves a nice meal.
And my kin caught the thieves.
And they looked at 'em and their full bellies and they decided our family-- hey-- our family was never gonna go hungry again.
And that's when we had our feast.
(slurping) We found our power.
And our place.
We knew then The Polks weren't like any other.
We were the only family.
First family.
We were the first family.
And we always will be, so long as we keep up traditions.
They have the death penalty in North Carolina-- you're all gonna die when they catch you.
Police been in our pockets for years now.
We pay 'em better than the state ever could.
(laughs) (sighs) What are you gonna do with that? Cauterize your thigh after Jether takes a chunk out of it.
Jesus! Wouldn't do to have you bleedin' out before we finish taking prime cuts.
(shrieks) (screaming) Can I have some water, please? What is that? (groans) You cut off my ear.
It's a present.
For Christmas.
It's the best day of the year.
We each get a pickled ear.
A bag of Mentho-lyptus.
Jar of black strap molasses.
More ammo.
The babies do cuddles with Mama.
I'm too old for that.
Lot gets her bed, but he say I'm too young.
I'm caught dab in the middle.
Why are you crying? I want another Christmas with Flora.
Is she your kin? My daughter.
You love her? Of course.
Every mother loves their children.
(short chuckle) Not every mama.
(sniffles) I wanted to be on the TV.
Ishmael, Cain, Lot-- they all got to be in the story.
How do you know about the show? We're part of the United States.
We get TV.
They're making a new show.
I'm gonna be on it.
You help me, I'll get you on TV.
Make you famous.
Only one person ever been like that in our family.
Kincaid Polk.
He used to take the hogs to slaughter in Chicago, where the stockyard was.
Then came the World's Fair.
1800-something.
That's when the Piggy Man was born.
After slaughtering the hogs, he'd put on a pig mask and slaughtered people.
Hung 'em up, gutted and skinned, upside down in the bathtub.
He got the idea from the Others.
He saw what The Butcher did.
(chuckles softly) Stick a pig head on that man and roast him alive.
Made himself a legend.
You can be bigger.
You can be the hero.
Just let me go.
You best put leaving here out of your mind.
Even I can't leave if I want to.
I ain't bigger than Piggy Man.
Never will be! So shut your mouth! Shut it! Don't care to hear your words no more.
Here.
Mama's coming to take a piece off your shoulder.
Snort this.
It'll take the edge off.
No, I can't do drugs.
I'm an addict.
I've worked hard to stay sober.
It doesn't matter, does it? There's no after after this.
Why don't you just kill me? Why take it piece by piece? Tradition mainly.
They didn't have no icebox back then.
(sniffs) It was the way to keep the meat fresh.
But Mama say fear and exhaustion gives the jerky a delicious tang.
So that's it? I'm gonna die.
(sniffs) After we take the best parts, we make bone broth.
Give me that shit.
‭(sniffs) (clears throat) (snorts) (quiet chuckle) (snorts) (groans) (fires crackling) (Dominic grunting) DOMINIC: All right, go, go, go, go, go! (wood rattling, cracking) SHELBY: Come on! (Dominic grunting) (grunts) Go, go! Go! (screams) (groaning) SHELBY: Jesus.
(groaning): Fuck my hand.

Oh shit! (groaning): Oh, shit.
Oh! There's so many of them.
How am we gonna go up against that paranormal activity shit, there's no way! Hey, what's going on with you? Hey, stay with me.
What's happening? We're gonna die in here.
No, no Shelby.
Shelby, stay with me.
We're gonna get out.
You've done it before.
I did it because I had Matt.
Fuck.
Matt's dead, okay? Oh, come on, now think! Shelby, it's the blood moon.
(groans) (whimpering): There's got to be some, some rules or-or mumbo jumbo that we can use.
SHELBY: There's nothing.
There's nothing.
‭(sighs) Please.
There's no escape.
(whispering): Hey, we're gonna get out of this.
There's so much out there waiting for us.
I'm gonna get my spin-off.
You're gonna get your yoga studio.
But we, but we have to stick together.
And we can do it.
I know we can.
(crying): You're a really good actor.
(sighs) You think so? (laughs) Okay.
All right, come on, come on.

(laughing) We're back where we started.
(sighs) I'm counting on you.
Shelby, I need you to do this.
Stay with me.
Dominic.
I killed the only man I've ever loved.
(crying) I took his life with my own hands.
(sighs) (crying) There's no place left for me.
No, no! (screaming) (calling out): Jether.
Jether! I have to see Flora.
You can save your breath.
I can't.
In my pants, back pocket.
There's a picture.
(Jether breathing heavily) (quietly): Let me see her.
Let me see her.
My sweet, sweet baby.
I want to talk to my Flora.
(crying) (sighs) (inhales and exhales deeply) Baby girl.
If by chance you see this, the first thing you have to know, is I love you.
I always will.
You've heard many things about me this past year, so I want to tell you the truth.
I killed Daddy.
That's on me, and me alone.
No one else helped me.
It's nobody's fault except mine.
He was gonna take you away from me, and I couldn't see my life going forward that way.
I don't know if one day you'll forgive me.
I just want you to go on without the weight of lies and doubt.
You go on, Flora, and rise up.
There's nothing holding you down.
(sighs) I never done nothing like that, kill somebody.
Lot tells me it's just like butchering a pig.
Mama tells me next time, it'll be my turn.
You're gonna kill me? Bust your cherry? Looking forward to it? ‭No.
I don't want to hurt you.
Too late for that.
Come here.
I like you.
I like you, too.
(groaning) Do you want to touch me? I want you to.
(heavy breathing) I want to tape it so I can watch later.
I won't show nobody.
(panting) LEE: I want to make you feel good.
Let me touch it.

You need to save me.
Help me! I'm dying here.
Why are you doing this? Why aren't you fucking saving me?! None of this would have happened if I just if I just walked away.
All I wanted is my own show.
I'm supposed to go to Thailand next month.
I've never been.
I'm flying first class.
Sidney, I'm so scared.
(crying) Sidney.
Help me! (loud panting) (rumbling) Why are you doing this? ISHMAEL: Oh, what's wrong? (groaning) I thought you liked having your picture took.
You're on that TV show, mocking our family.
We never meant to mock anyone.
We're just actors.
We play pretend.
Nothing we do is real! Our babies was real.
They was took from us 'cause of you.
That wasn't us.
It wasn't us.
It was Matt and Shelby! The real Matt and Shelby! What are you talking about, huh? I'm talking about the real people.

‭The Others are gonna get 'em soon enough.
Oh, damn it! What happened? Damn thing snapped right in half.
‭Huh? I was almost finished with it! Goddamn blood moon's gonna be full tomorrow.
We ain't had a rain of teeth in forever! Well, where'd you get them teeth on that TV show? Hmm? ‭Props.
They were props.
They weren't real.
It was all pretend.
You think it actually rains teeth here? Well, it's a gift from the Others.
All them that's been sacrificed over the years.
We think it's those ones.
See, teeth the only things that don't burn.
Mama tells us we wear these, well, we don't burn, either.
Oh, my God.
‭The Others leave us alone.

(screaming) Oh, my God! Oh, my God! Oh, my God! Poor Shelby! I feel like part of me has died with her! Oh, my God! DOMINIC: She killed herself.
(gasping) Did you find Sidney? We got to get the hell out of here, man.
Sidney is dead! There is no help! ‭(sighs) We can't go outside and we can't stay here.
They're freaking everywhere, man.
What happened in the basement? Who killed my brother? Shelby.
‭Oh, give me a break! Then she came up here and she killed herself.
She flipped out when she saw Matt having sex with that thing.
(sighs heavily) She just She went nuts and busted his head open with a crowbar.
And she just She couldn't live with herself, so she slit her own throat.
I was here.
I saw everything.
I tried to stop her, but I I just couldn't.
You expect us to believe that shit, when you're the one holding the knife? Oh, fuck off.
It's on the cameras.
Oh, conveniently for you, we can't play it back.
You fucking liar.
Shelby would never kill Matt.
She loved him.
She came here to get back with him! What are you talking about? You're the one that hated her.
Get out of my sight! Said she was destroying Matt.
Get out of here! Come on.
AUDREY: You did something, you snake.
I know you did.
Shelby would never kill herself! She's way too self-centered to commit suicide! I played her for six months! I know her better than I know myself! DOMINIC: Listen to me, everybody's messed up.
We've all been through a ton of shit.
But this place is fucking dangerous.
Now, if you want to live, we have to stick together.
Fuck you.
(slammed door echoes) Come on, don't shut me out.
(squealing) DOMINIC: Let me in! Let me in! (knocking) Let me in! You have to open the door.
You have to open the door.
There was something out there! I saw it! It's his fault they're all dead.
(Dominic grunts) (Dominic's muffled shouts) (crying): Oh, my God (snorting) ‭(yelling) (cleaver strikes) (whispering): If I die I just want you all to know I had so many wonderful performances waiting for you.
There were so many things I was gonna give to you as my fans.
(sniffles) And I promise you, I promise you I will love you always.
(Piggy Man screeches outside) I had so much more to give.
I love you.
(snorting) (house creaking) Oh, thank God.
I didn't think we were gonna make it through the night.
(panting softly) What time is it? I can't believe this phone is still working.
We have to go back.
Go back? Go back where? To the Polk farm.
I'm s Have you gone mad? I'm not going back out into those woods.
Those two savages are still out there.
We killed people last night, Audrey.
The both of us.
There's a video of it on that farm.
I want that tape before someone else finds it.
‭That video also shows me and Monet being force-fed your goddamn leg, Lee.
They were torturing us! I want people to see it! There isn't a jury in the world that would convict us.
The wrong people get their hands on that footage, the only thing the world will see is the image of you caving in an old woman's head with a hammer.
That is what people will remember, I promise you.
(sighs) I'm getting that tape, then I'm gonna hot-wire their truck and get the hell out of here.
You're welcome to come with.
(Lee grunting in pain) (shuddering breaths) Oh, bloody hell.
Take these pills, okay? All right, let's go.

Oh, God, oh, no, no, no, no, no.

Some of my best moments were Yeah, hold on there.
(quietly): Okay.
Okay.
Okay, here we go.
I can't look at him again.
(panting softly) Right.
Okay.
I think we can go out the front door.
It should be safe; it's daylight.
Oh, God.
Careful.
Okay.
Almost there.
AUDREY: Lean on me more.
It's all right.
Okay.
(panting): Okay.
(Audrey and Lee scream) Stop, goddamn it! Stop! It's me.
