THREE: Advanced draft/development
Forgiveness isn’t always the answer…
Independent Australian Erin, (24) rents a cheap house in London awaiting renovation, but when odd events trigger painful memories, she uneasily realises, they’re not all her own.
ERIN, (24) ignores it all at first, as it brings up memories of her twin Ethan’s tragic death. But as the frightening events escalate, so does her mistrust of ROSE (70’s) who watches her from across the road. Spooked Erin enlists the help of new work friend KAT,(24) and even drops her barriers to work client JAMES (28), who clearly wants so much more. They invite paranormal expert ED (33) and his high-tech Kirlian scanner into the house, but Erin mistrusts him on sight. However, when the scans point to Erin’s energy being the trigger, the ghosts of, ALFIE and WILL, manifest and take possession of Ed and James. A violent fight starts, threatening all their lives. The doors lock, but Kat escapes and runs to Rose. She discovers that Rose lived in the house in the 1950’s, until her mother and brother were killed by Rose’s Father Alfie, who also murdered her Mother’s lover Will. Since then, the ghosts replay the tragedy whenever there’s someone in the house with deep unresolved issues of their own, but this is the first-time full blown possession has happened…. But, is it Rose or Erin who must break this violent cycle, which now seems far, far darker.
