UH, NO.

WANT TO KEEP KILLING? PUSH THIS AX ON MY FACE.

(distorted voice)

(Zak) ...EVERY HOUR?

MY NAME IS ZAK BAGANS.

I NEVER BELIEVED IN GHOSTS

UNTIL I CAME FACE-TO-FACE WITH ONE.

YOU WANTED US. YOU GOT US.

SO I SET OUT ON A QUEST

TO CAPTURE WHAT I ONCE SAW ONTO VIDEO.

GO, GO, GO!

WITH NO BIG CAMERA CREWS FOLLOWING US AROUND,

I AM JOINED ONLY

BY MY FELLOW INVESTIGATOR NICK GROFF

AND OUR EQUIPMENT TECH AARON GOODWIN.

THE THREE OF US WILL TRAVEL

TO SOME OF THE MOST HIGHLY ACTIVE PARANORMAL LOCATIONS

WHERE WE WILL SPEND AN ENTIRE NIGHT

BEING LOCKED DOWN FROM DUSK UNTIL DAWN.

YOU HAVE REACHED YOUR FINAL DESTINATION--

HELL.

RAW...

OH! STOP!

EXTREME...

(Aaron) HOLY (bleep)!

(Zak) STOP! (bleep) STOP RUNNING!

EIGHT PEOPLE HACKED TO DEATH.

EIGHT PEOPLE HACKED TO DEATH... HACKED TO DEATH.

IF YOU PUSH THIS PLACE, YOU KNOW IT'S GONNA FIGHT BACK BIG-TIME.

SOMETHING KEEPS PULLING ME BACK HERE, AND I WANT ANSWERS.

VILLISCA, IOWA, THE HEARTLAND OF FARMING,

SURROUNDED BY MILES AND MILES OF CORNFIELDS,

YOU'D THINK THAT THIS SMALL QUIET TOWN

WOULD BE FILLED WITH NOTHING BUT HAPPY HISTORY.

BUT THIS PLACE HAS A DARK SIDE,

AND THAT'S WHY WE'RE HERE.

EIGHT PEOPLE HACKED TO DEATH

WHILE THEY SLEEP,

SIX OF THEM BEING CHILDREN,

IN THIS SMALL 1900s HOME.

IT'S BEEN NEARLY 100 YEARS

WHEN SIX FAMILY MEMBERS AND TWO NEIGHBORHOOD FRIENDS

CAME BACK TO THIS HOUSE

AFTER ATTENDING CHURCH.

RIGHT HERE IS WHERE THE MURDERER WAS SAID TO HIDE.

WHEN THEY GOT HOME, THEY WENT TO BED.

THE AX MURDERER CLIMBED OUT,

CAME OVER HERE TO THIS BED WHERE THE PARENTS WERE SLEEPING,

AND HIT 'EM BOTH IN THE FACE WITH THE AX,

KILLING THEM.

AFTER THAT, THIS MONSTER WALKED OVER INTO THIS ROOM.

FOUR CHILDREN

WERE HIT IN THE FACE WITH AN AX

AND KILLED IN HERE.

BUT HE WASN'T DONE YET.

HE DECIDED TO COME INTO THIS ROOM

AND KILL TWO NEIGHBORHOOD GIRLS THAT WERE SLEEPING OVER.

BUT THE WEIRDEST AND STRANGEST PART IS

IS THIS KILLER DIDN'T WANT TO SEE HIMSELF,

COVERED UP ALL THE MIRRORS IN THE ENTIRE HOUSE.

DID HE NOT WANT TO SEE WHAT A TRUE MONSTER LOOKS LIKE?

AND WHO WAS THE KILLER?

AS AN UNSOLVED MURDER CASE, THE SUSPECT WAS NEVER CAUGHT.

FATHER JOSIAH MOORE, HIS WIFE SARAH,

THEIR FOUR CHILDREN--HERMAN, CATHERINE, BOYD, AND PAUL--

AS WELL AS TWO NEIGHBOR CHILDREN--

LENA AND INA STILLINGER BRUTALLY BLUDGEONED

IN A CASE THAT GRABBED THE ATTENTION

OF THE AMERICAN PUBLIC.

SOME PEOPLE SAID IT TOOK THE SINKING OF THE "TITANIC"

OFF THE FRONT PAGES.

WOW, REALLY?

YES. THAT HAD HAPPENED JUST A COUPLE OF MONTHS BEFORE

THE VILLISCA MURDER.

CAN YOU IMAGINE THE PUBLICITY THAT THIS MURDER CAUSED?

THERE WERE NUMEROUS SUSPECTS.

MOST PROMINENT WERE STATE SENATOR FRANK JONES,

ANDY SAWYER, AND REVEREND GEORGE KELLY,

A TRAVELING PREACHER KNOWN TO BE A PEEPING TOM,

WHO WAS AT THE CHURCH

THE LAST TIME THE VICTIMS WERE SEEN ALIVE.

DO YOU THINK THAT THIS WAS A MAN OF GOD THAT KNEW HE WAS SINNING?

HE WAS A HORRIBLY CONFLICTED PERSONALITY,

WHICH REVEREND KELLY WOULD FIT THAT.

HIS CONFESSION WAS VERY GRAPHIC.

WHOSE CONFESSION?

KELLY'S. HE CONFESSED TO THE CRIME.

HE CONFESSED TO DOING THEM?

OH, YES. OH, YES. THE JURY DIDN'T BELIEVE HIS CONFESSION.

WHAT?

YEAH, HE HAD ASKED THE CONFESSION BE SUPPRESSED,

OR HIS LAWYERS DID.

WHY WASN'T HE ACCUSED

IF HE HAD CONFESSED TO THE MURDER?

I THINK THE INVESTIGATION WAS EITHER INCOMPETENT OR CORRUPT.

WHAT THE HELL? WHAT'S GOING ON HERE?

IS THAT WHY THIS HOUSE IS PRESUMABLY

SO DAMN ACTIVE WITH UNEXPLAINED ACTIVITY?

DO YOU THINK THAT THERE'S STILL WAYS OF GETTING INFORMATION

THAT COULD POSSIBLY HELP SOLVE THIS CASE?

IF YOU MEAN FROM PARANORMAL SOURCES,

I'M VERY SKEPTICAL OF THAT.

I VERY MUCH DOUBT THAT. BUT WE'RE NEVER, EITHER OF US,

GOING TO HAVE A CASE THAT WE COULD BRING HERE TO A JURY

AND GET A CONVICTION.

I'D LIKE FOR YOU TO ACTUALLY COME IN AND US INFORM YOU

OF HOW WE'RE GONNA DO THIS INVESTIGATION.

I'LL TELL YOU, THOUGH, I'M HONEST.

IF I THINK IT'S HOGWASH, I'LL TELL YOU.

THAT'S WHAT WE WANT.

ALL RIGHT, WE'RE IN DOWNTOWN VILLISCA RIGHT NOW,

AND WE'RE GONNA GO INSIDE THE TOWN'S MUSEUM.

AND IN HERE IS A GUY NAMED DARWIN,

AND HE CLAIMS HE HAS THE ACTUAL MURDER WEAPON

ON DISPLAY IN HERE.

SO THIS--THIS AX

WAS ACTUALLY TAKEN FROM THE MOORE HOUSE.

RIGHT.

NOW WHY DO PEOPLE SAY THAT THIS ISN'T THE MURDER WEAPON?

WELL, IT WASN'T THE ONE IN THE TRIALS.

WHEN SHERIFF JACKSON--

SHERIFF JACKSON.

SHERIFF JACKSON WAS THE SHERIFF AT THE TIME.

ANYWAY, HE TRAVELED TO... ONE NIGHT

TO SPEAK AT A MASONIC LODGE,

AND HE LEFT THE AX.

HE BOUGHT AN AX,

AND THAT WAS THE AX THAT WENT INTO THE TRIALS.

SO ONE HE BOUGHT?

YEAH.

WASN'T THE ACTUAL AX USED IN THE MURDER.

IT WASN'T THE ACTUAL AX.

THAT'S THE CLAIM.

WOW.

THEY--

THIS CASE IS STILL OPEN,

AND WE ARE GOING TO TRY AND OBTAIN EVIDENCE TONIGHT

TO ACTUALLY TRY AND HELP SOLVE THIS CASE.

THERE'S SOMETHING NOT NICE ABOUT THIS PLACE.

IT DEFINITELY HAS A DARK SIDE.

WELL, GO INTRODUCE US TO THE NOT NICE PART.

SOUNDS GOOD. LET'S GO.

LET'S GO.

YOU CAN SEE A LOT OF BAD, NEGATIVE ENERGY IN HERE.

DO YOU THINK THERE'S GOOD AND BAD HERE?

I THINK THE GOOD'S RESIDUAL,

AND I THINK THE BAD'S INTELLIGENT, HIGHLY INTELLIGENT.

I INVESTIGATED IN JANUARY OF LAST YEAR

AND THEN AGAIN JULY THE 20th OF LAST YEAR.

I CALL THAT MY NIGHT IN HELL, BASICALLY.

BEFORE I EVEN STEPPED IN THE HOUSE,

I COULD FEEL THE NEGATIVE ENERGY ON THE GROUND.

THE HOUSE ITSELF-- IT'S GOT AN EVIL ABOUT IT.

THE ATMOSPHERE INSIDE THE HOME COMPLETELY TURNS.

DID YOU FEEL THAT YOU WERE IN COMPANY OF SOMETHING EVIL?

OH, WE IMMEDIATELY FELT THAT PRESENCE.

WE DECIDED TO DO A GHOST BOX SESSION INSIDE THE PARLOR AREA.

IS THAT THE SPIRIT BOX?

THAT'S THE SPIRIT BOX.

NOW YOU USED THAT IN HERE?

WE USED THAT IN HERE IN THE PARLOR.

IT'S GOOD TO HEAR OTHER PEOPLE HAVING SUCCESS WITH THAT.

WHAT HAPPENED WITH IT?

A MINUTE INTO THE ACTUAL RECORDING...

WE DID CAPTURE ON THE SPIRIT BOX

A VOICE THAT CAME THROUGH WAS A MALE VOICE, AND IT SAID...

(man) WHO'S WITH YOU?

(distorted voice)

IT'S VERY IRONIC THAT WE GOT THAT NAME.

YES, THAT THAT NAME WOULD COME THROUGH.

PARANORMAL RESEARCH

ISN'T JUST ABOUT GOING OUT AND TRYING TO GET SPOOKED.

THIS IS A VERY SERIOUS FIELD,

AND SOME OF THE EVIDENCE

THAT YOU CAN RECEIVE

COULD BE ANSWERS

IN THE AFTERLIFE

THAT COULD HELP AN UNSOLVED MURDER CASE.

EXACTLY.

DID IT EVER FINALLY SAY ANYTHING ELSE?

CHRIS DEDMAN SAID, "IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST"...

"I COMMAND YOU TO TELL ME WHO YOU ARE."

IT ANNOUNCED ITSELF AS LEGION.

(distorted voice)

LEGION.

MEANS "MANY." YOU CAN FIGHT ONE,

BUT THERE'S ALWAYS GONNA BE ANOTHER TO TAKE ITS PLACE.

SO THIS WAS, LIKE, STRONG, POWERFUL (bleep).

OH, YES, IT WAS. IT DEFINITELY WAS.

(Chris) I ACTUALLY GOT UP

AND STARTED WALKING OUT OF THE HOUSE.

HE STOOD UP, WALKED TO THE FRONT DOOR, WALKED DOWN THE RAMP.

WHATEVER WAS STANDING THERE WAS NOT PLAYING,

AND IT LITERALLY KNOCKED THE BREATH OUT OF ME.

AND HE WAS HUNCHED OVER,

SAYING, "I FEEL LIKE I JUST GOT HIT BY A BASEBALL BAT."

I COULDN'T TALK, 'CAUSE I WAS OUT OF BREATH.

HE TOLD US THAT WE SHOULD ALL CHECK OUR BACKS.

ROLAND SAYS, "WELL, LET'S CHECK YOUR BACK."

AND AS I STARTED TO RAISE MY SHIRT OFF,

THERE WERE THREE CLAW MARKS THAT WENT DOWN MY BACK,

AND THEY SWIPED TO THE RIGHT, FORMING THE LETTER "L."

IT'S AWFUL IRONIC THAT THAT'S WHAT IT IDENTIFIED ITSELF AS...

LEGION.

AS LEGION.

THIS HOUSE IS GETTING MORE INTERESTING.

OH, YEAH.

LIVING NEXT DOOR, IT STARTED TO FOLLOW ME

HOME FROM WORK, SO TO SPEAK.

SO DID YOU FEEL

LIKE YOU WERE ALMOST GOING INTO, LIKE, A STATE OF OPPRESSION?

MEAN, COLD,

BITTER TOWARDS FAMILY MEMBERS.

DO YOU THINK THAT THIS DARK ENERGY

WAS STARTING TO CONSUME YOU?

OH, IT WAS CONSUMING ME.

OH, ABSOLUTELY, AND I THINK IT STILL DOES.

NOW IT'S COMING OVER TO MY HOUSE WITH MY KIDS,

AND THAT'S WHEN I DECIDED NO AND KIND OF WAGED MY OWN BATTLE.

BUT IT'S GETTING TO THE POINT

TO WHERE I CAN'T DO IT ALONE,

AND THAT'S WHY I'M SO GLAD

YOU GUYS ARE HERE TO HELP OUT.

WHAT PERCENTAGE OF THE HAUNTINGS HERE DO YOU THINK ARE DEMONIC?

IF THERE IS DEMONIC IN HERE,

IT'S OVERPOWERING EVERYTHING ELSE AT THIS POINT.

WILL YOU SHOW US YOUR POWER?

WE'LL SHOW YOU RESPECT IF YOU CAN SHOW US RESPECT BACK.

I THINK THE TOUGHEST THING HERE...

(bleep)

THE DOOR JUST--

THE DOOR JUST SHUT BY ITSELF.

DID YOU SEE THAT?

YEAH. I WAS STARING RIGHT AT IT WHEN IT HAPPENED.

(Aaron) YOU OKAY, MAN?

YEAH. I'M REALLY...

BAD FEELING.

I HAVE IT, TOO. I HAVE IT, TOO.

WHO'S IN THERE?

(Aaron) WAIT. WAS THAT THE NOISE OF THE DOOR, OR IS THAT MUSIC?

SHH. IS SOMEBODY IN HERE?

I'M JUST GONNA GO TO SHOW YOU RIGHT NOW

THE DOOR DOESN'T SHUT BY ITSELF.

AND THAT'S KIND OF HOW IT WAS.

SO JUST DOCUMENTING THAT.

IS SOMEBODY IN HERE?

GO AHEAD AND SHUT IT.

IS THERE SOMEBODY IN HERE?

DID YOU SHUT THE DOOR?

CAN YOU MAKE A NOISE?

OH, GOSH. (exhales deeply)

DUDE, THERE'S SOMETHING BAD IN THIS (bleep) HOUSE.

I KNOW IT.

DO YOU THINK IT COULD GET DANGEROUS IN THERE FOR US?

I THINK IT COULD. POTENTIALLY, IT COULD.

HOW?

I THINK THAT IF YOU PUSH THAT HOUSE

TO A CERTAIN POINT OF THAT EVIL, WHATEVER IT MAY BE,

AND YOU CHALLENGE IT, IT'S GONNA COME OUT,

AND IT'S GONNA WANT TO PLAY.

YOU GUYS READY TO PLAY?

(Nick) ALWAYS.

AARON?

(Aaron) UH, I GUESS.

(laughs, bleep)

(exhales deeply)

THIS IS HIS HOUSE.

WHOSE HOUSE?

THE GUY THAT DID THE MURDER.

DO YOU THINK THAT THIS SPIRIT

WOULD STILL WANT TO CARRY OUT HIS ACT OF MURDER ON YOU TWO?

I HAVE A FEELING THAT'S WHAT HE WANTS TO DO.

(woman) AAH!

I HAVE TO SIT DOWN.

ARE YOU ALL RIGHT?

UH, NO.

DO YOU WANT TO SEE

WHAT HAPPENS BEHIND THE SCENES OF "GHOST ADVENTURES"?

WELL, GO TO MY VLOGS ON travelchannel.com

AND CHECK IT OUT. WE'RE ALWAYS ROLLING.

IOWA--

GOD'S COUNTRY.

ON THE HORIZON,

IT SEEMS AS IF YOU CAN SEE AND FEEL FOREVER.

FOR 8 INNOCENT PEOPLE, ON JUNE 10, 1912,

FOREVER WAS TAKEN AWAY ON THAT EVENING.

AN AX MURDERER SLICED UP ALL THE HOPES AND DREAMS

OF TWO FAMILIES,

CARVED THE AMERICANA OF VILLISCA INTO BLACKNESS,

AND FOREVER FLIPPED THIS HOUSE

FROM SWEET, CHARMING, AND INNOCENT

INTO ITS OWN PRIVATE LITTLE HELL.

YOU LIVED INSIDE HERE?

YES.

WHO'D YOU LIVE IN HERE WITH?

MY MOM AND MY DAD, MY SISTERS AND BROTHERS.

WHEN YOU MOVED IN HERE, WERE YOU AWARE OF THE HORRIFIC EVENTS

THAT TOOK PLACE IN HERE?

NO, NO.

DOES THIS HOUSE SCARE YOU?

MM-HMM.

WHY DOES IT SCARE YOU?

'CAUSE IT JUST DOES.

TOO MANY THINGS HAPPENED IN HERE.

I DON'T WANT TO BE IN HERE.

WHEN WE FIRST MOVED,

WE HAD TO SLEEP IN THERE ON THE FRONT ROOM FLOOR.

AND IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT,

I HEARD THIS LITTLE GIRL CRYING.

THAT'S THE FIRST TIME I HEARD VOICES,

AND IT SOUNDED LIKE LITTLE GIRLS.

WHEN YOU'RE A LITTLE KID AND YOU HEAR VOICES,

WHAT DO YOU THINK? WHAT DO YOU DO?

WE GOT UP AND TOLD MOM OUR EXPERIENCE,

AND MOM SAID, "OH, IT'S JUST YOUR IMAGINATION."

AND NOBODY BELIEVES YOU WHEN YOU TELL THEM.

THERE WAS A LOT OF THINGS THAT HAPPENED

RIGHT AFTER THAT POINT.

OUR DAD ALWAYS LIKED TO SHARPEN HIS OWN KNIVES.

HE WAS HONING THE KNIFE AWAY FROM HIM, LIKE SO.

AND THEN ALL OF A SUDDEN, HE WENT LIKE THIS.

IT LOOKED LIKE THERE WAS A PRESSURE ON HIS HAND

AND JUST TURNED IT, AND STABBED HIM.

DO YOU THINK THAT A DARK UNSEEN FORCE

WAS TRYING TO TAKE THAT KNIFE AND ALMOST KILL YOUR FATHER?

WELL, YEAH, ABSOLUTELY.

THAT ENERGY DOESN'T WANT ANYBODY HERE.

THIS IS HIS HOUSE.

WHOSE HOUSE?

THE GUY THAT DID THE MURDER.

DO YOU THINK THAT WAS HIM? YOU ALL RIGHT?

NO.

WHAT'S WRONG?

I HAVE TO SIT DOWN.

I REALLY HAVE TO SIT DOWN.

ARE YOU ALL RIGHT?

UH, NO.

WHAT'S WRONG?

I FEEL VERY, VERY WEAK.

IT'S OKAY. YOU ALL RIGHT?

YEAH.

DO YOU WANT TO LEAVE THE HOUSE?

(sighs)

CAN YOU STAY?

I CAN STAY.

I JUST NEED TO BREATHE.

TALKING ABOUT WHAT HAPPENED

AND JUST REALIZING THE ATROCITY OF IT,

YOU KNOW,

UM, WOW.

THERE IS DEFINITELY SOMETHING NOT RIGHT HERE, OKAY.

I WANT ANSWERS, YOU KNOW. THIS HOUSE TALKS TO ME ALL THE TIME.

IT'S... (exhales deeply)

BEEN WITH ME MY WHOLE LIFE.

IT CALLS ME BACK,

AND I DON'T KNOW WHY.

THEY KNOW THAT THEY CAN GET TO YOU,

AND THEY SEE THE EMOTIONS THAT THEY CAN CAUSE YOU.

THEY GET OFF ON THAT. WHEN YOU EYEWITNESS THINGS

THAT HAVE HAPPENED TO YOUR OWN FATHER--

SEEING AN ATTACK-- THOSE EXPERIENCES,

THEY LIVE WITH YOU. THEY BREED IN YOU.

SOMETIMES IT'S HARD TO UNDERSTAND,

BUT IT'S A VERY REAL THING TO DEAL WITH.

ZAK, NICK, AARON-- VILLISCA.

I WANT TO SEE IF I CAN GIVE HER SOME KIND OF CLOSURE

BY YOU SPEAKING TO ME RIGHT NOW.

DO YOU RECOGNIZE LINDA?

ALL RIGHT, WE'LL REVIEW THIS AUDIO.

(Zak) IF I CAN GIVE HER SOME KIND OF CLOSURE

BY YOU SPEAKING TO ME RIGHT NOW.

WHAT IS THAT?

(Aaron) THAT'S A VOICE.

(distorted voice)

"WHERE IS SHE?"

MM-HMM.

"WHERE IS SHE?"

THAT'S WHAT I HEAR. "WHERE IS SHE?"

AFTER GETTING THAT E.V.P., OR ELECTRONIC VOICE PHENOMENA,

WE WENT UPSTAIRS TO LINDA'S OLD BEDROOM,

AND THE UNEASY FEELING LINGERED.

OH. I JUST WANT THOSE LITTLE GIRLS

TO TELL ME WHAT THEY WANT ME TO DO.

FLASHES IN MY HEAD. I COULD SEE, LIKE, BLOOD ALL OVER--

IT WAS CRAZY, DUDE.

YOU ALL RIGHT?

YEAH, YEAH.

YOU FEEL THE SADNESS?

I DO FEEL THE SADNESS. I FEEL IT EVERY TIME I COME HERE.

IT BREAKS MY HEART. SOMETHING KEEPS PULLING ME BACK HERE,

AND I DON'T KNOW HOW MUCH OF IT IS THE BAD,

AND I DON'T KNOW HOW MUCH OF IT IS THE GOOD.

IF THAT THING GETS UP

AND STARTS WALKING TO ME,

I AM GONNA RUN OUT OF THAT WINDOW

AND LAND HEADFIRST IN THE GRASS.

I'M GOING FIRST. SORRY.

I'M DOWN THE STAIRS, AND I'M OUT OF THERE.

I JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE THERE'S NOBODY IN THIS.

I-I DON'T...

(laughs)

LIKE THIS LITTLE GUY.

I'M JUST GONNA DO SOMETHING REALLY QUICK.

PUT HIM IN A...

LET'S JUST-- JUST FOR THIS TIME BEING.

WHEN YOU GUYS COME INTO THIS HOUSE, YOU BOTH TREMBLE.

YOU BOTH

SEEM TO BE VERY UNCOMFORTABLE.

DO YOU FEEL SOMETHING IN THIS HOUSE?

DO YOU FEEL IT RIGHT NOW?

MM-HMM.

DO YOU FEEL THAT IT WANTS TO DO HARM?

MM-HMM.

I TOLD MY SISTER. WHEN SHE TOLD ME THAT, YOU KNOW,

THEY WANT--YOU GUYS WANTED US TO COME,

I SAID, "I DON'T WANT TO GO BACK THERE."

YOU DIDN'T WANT TO.

I DIDN'T WANT TO.

I'M GONNA SAY SOMETHING A LITTLE UNCOMFORTABLE HERE,

BUT I WANT A TRUE ANSWER.

DO YOU THINK THAT THIS SPIRIT--

DO YOU THINK HE WOULD STILL WANT TO CARRY HIS ACT OF MURDER

ON YOU TWO?

I HAVE A FEELING

THAT'S WHAT HE WANTS TO DO.

ARE YOU HERE RIGHT NOW? DO YOU HEAR ME?

WILL YOU GIVE ME SOME ANSWERS AND GIVE HER SOME ANSWERS?

DO YOU WANT TO GET OUT OF THIS HOUSE NOW?

IF THAT'S OKAY WITH YOU.

THAT'S FINE, SWEETIE. I UNDERSTAND.

I DON'T WANT YOU TO BE UNCOMFORTABLE, OKAY?

THANK YOU. THANK YOU SO MUCH.

THANK YOU.

I'M SORRY ABOUT THE INTERVIEW.

DON'T SAY SORRY.

DON'T SAY SORRY. IT'S OKAY.

I UNDERSTAND.

(sniffs, exhales deeply)

YOU OKAY?

YEAH, I'M FINE. I JUST DON'T WANT TO BE IN THERE.

YOU CAN FEEL THE PAIN

AND THE TERROR

IN THESE WOMEN.

SHAKING?

(mumbles)

YOU REALLY DON'T KNOW

AND UNDERSTAND THIS

UNTIL IT TRULY DOES HAPPEN TO YOU.

I HATE THAT HOUSE.

I JUST DON'T WANT TO BE IN THERE.

I DON'T LIKE IT IN THERE.

WOW. I DIDN'T KNOW THIS WAS GONNA BE THIS EMOTIONAL, MAN.

THIS PLACE, OH.

(breathes heavily)

WE DON'T READ THE HISTORY IN A TEXTBOOK.

WE COME HERE

AND COMMUNICATE WITH THE HISTORY.

THE HISTORY IS NOT DEAD.

THE HISTORY IS STILL ALIVE

IN ANOTHER FORM.

(Aaron) SHE'S BAWLING OUT THERE.

I'M GONNA GO TALK TO HER REAL QUICK.

YOU OKAY?

MM-HMM.

(sighs) IT'S OKAY. IT'S OKAY.

I DIDN'T WANT THAT TO BE UNCOMFORTABLE

FOR YOU TO GO IN THERE, ALL RIGHT?

WE DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU GUYS EXPERIENCED IN THERE,

AND THAT CAN BE TERRORIZING,

AND THAT CAN LIVE WITH YOU FOR A LONG TIME.

I DIDN'T MEAN TO FOUL IT UP FOR YOU. I'M SORRY.

DON'T--YOU'RE NOT.

(Aaron) YOU DIDN'T FOUL ANYTHING UP.

PLEASE DON'T APOLOGIZE.

YOU GOT TO UNDERSTAND WE UNDERSTAND WHAT THIS CAN DO.

YOU ALL RIGHT?

MM-HMM.

THANK YOU FOR COMING OUT HERE.

I KNOW IT WAS VERY HARD FOR BOTH OF YOU.

BUT I HOPE WE'RE HERE IN SOME WAY,

AND WE'RE GONNA TRY AND COMMUNICATE WITH THEM

IN HOPES OF BRINGING SOME KIND OF CLOSURE,

AT LEAST.

WE ARE LOCKED DOWN INSIDE THE VILLISCA AX MURDER HOUSE.

IF YOU HEAR SOMETHING THAT MIGHT BE MISCONSTRUED AS A VOICE,

SAY SOMETHING.

WE BROUGHT SOMEBODY IN HERE THAT DOESN'T THINK THAT YOU EXIST.

IT'S YOUR TURN TO SPEAK.

IT'S ABOUT THAT TIME. IT'S GETTING DARK OUTSIDE RIGHT NOW.

THIS IS ONE OF THE MOST EMOTIONAL INVESTIGATIONS

THAT I THINK I'M GONNA BE GOING INTO,

JUST BECAUSE OF WHAT HAPPENED IN THIS LITTLE TINY HOUSE,

SIX KIDS BRUTALLY MURDERED

BY POSSIBLY THIS,

NOT TO MENTION, TWO PARENTS--

TOTAL OF EIGHT PEOPLE.

LET'S SEE WHAT HAPPENS

WHEN WE BRING ONE OF THE SUSPECTED MURDER WEAPONS

IN THE HOUSE.

WE ARE LOCKED DOWN INSIDE THE VILLISCA AX MURDER HOUSE.

NOT ONLY THAT, FOR ONE HOUR,

WE'RE BRINGING IN A RETIRED LAW ENFORCEMENT PERSON

WHO IS ACTUALLY STILL KIND OF AN OPEN DETECTIVE

ON THIS UNSOLVED MURDER CASE.

HE'S EVEN WRITTEN A BOOK ABOUT THE VILLISCA AX MURDER.

THIS GUY IS A 100% SKEPTIC,

AND WE ARE GOING TO BRING HIM IN

AND CONDUCT A LIVE E.V.P. SESSION

WITH HIM WITNESSING EVERY SINGLE MOMENT OF THIS.

WE'RE GONNA SEE IF WE CAN CAPTURE ANY EVIDENCE

THAT MAY HELP THIS MURDER CASE AND GIVE CLOSURE

TO THE UNRESTED SPIRITS IN THIS HOUSE.

WE'VE GOT FOUR "X"s PLANTED IN THE VILLISCA AX MURDER HOUSE.

THE FIRST "X" IS IN THE DOWNSTAIRS CELLAR,

WHERE THEY SAY THEY SEE SHADOW PEOPLE

AND HEAR GROWLING ALL THE TIME.

AARON, THAT'S WHERE YOU'RE GOING BY YOURSELF TONIGHT.

(exhales deeply)

THE NEXT "X" IS IN THE DOWNSTAIRS BEDROOM,

WHERE THE TWO NEIGHBORHOOD STILLINGER GIRLS

WERE BRUTALLY MURDERED BY AN AX.

THEY SAY THEY HEAR GIRLS IN THERE CRYING ALL THE TIME.

THE NEXT "X" IS IN THE UPSTAIRS ATTIC

WHERE THE SUSPECTED KILLER WAS SAID TO BE HIDING OUT

BEFORE HE MURDERED THE ENTIRE FAMILY.

THE NEXT "X" IS WHERE THE FOUR KIDS WERE BRUTALLY MURDERED.

BUT THE MOST PROFOUND THING IN HERE

IS THAT THE HOUSE IS CONSUMED BY A DARK ENTITY.

WE'RE GONNA FIND OUT

IF THAT DARK ENTITY IS STILL LOOKING FOR THIS,

AND IF HE WANTS TO USE THIS ON US.

(crickets chirping)

ALL RIGHT, GUYS, SEND IN ROY.

(walkie-talkie beeps)

(man speaks indistinctly)

ALL RIGHT, RIGHT NOW WE'RE GONNA BRING IN A SKEPTIC,

A GUY WE INTERVIEWED EARLIER.

HE WROTE A BOOK ABOUT THE MURDER HERE

IN VILLISCA.

WE'RE GONNA HAVE HIM COME IN AND WITNESS AN E.V.P. SESSION

TO SEE IF WE CAN CAPTURE ANY VOICES

POSSIBLY TO HELP SOLVE THIS CASE.

YOU NEVER KNOW.

HOW ARE YOU DOING, ROY?

GOOD.

ZAK?

YEAH, YEAH. NICE TO--

I'M GONNA TURN ON A LIGHT HERE, SO WE CAN SEE YOU.

HOW YOU DOING, SIR?

I'M FINE.

OKAY, UM, WHAT WE'RE GONNA DO IS--

ROY, I TOLD YOU THAT WE WERE GONNA DO AN E.V.P. SESSION.

WHAT'S THAT?

BECAUSE ROY WAS A SKEPTIC,

I WANTED TO BE VERY DETAILED IN THIS E.V.P. SESSION.

THIS--THE SENSITIVITY OF THE MICROPHONE

CAN PICK UP, YOU KNOW, LEVELS

THAT WE CAN'T HEAR WITH OUR OWN EARS.

I SHOWED HIM THE DIGITAL RECORDER

WITH NO AUDIO FILES SAVED ON IT.

THERE'S A FOLDER "A" THERE AND A FOLDER "B"

SHOWING ZERO, ZERO, ZERO, ZERO.

NO FILES HAVE BEEN RECORDED YET. DO YOU SEE THAT?

I SEE THAT.

OKAY.

I ALSO EXPLAINED THE PROPER RECORDING PROCEDURES.

WHEN I DO THIS, I WANT TO MAKE SURE

THAT WE DON'T CONFUSE ANY NOISE FOR AN E.V.P.

NO SHUFFLING ON THE WOOD FLOOR, NO--

IF WE HEAR A VOICE COMING FROM THE OUTSIDE,

WE WILL MARK THAT.

SO IF YOU HEAR ANYTHING, SAY IT. YOU CAN BE LIKE A REFEREE.

IF YOU HEAR SOMETHING THAT MIGHT BE MISCONSTRUED AS A VOICE,

SAY SOMETHING.

RAISE YOUR FLAG.

WE'RE GONNA BEGIN E.V.P. SESSION NUMBER TWO WITH ROY.

WE'RE IN THE DOWNSTAIRS BEDROOM.

WE BROUGHT SOMEBODY IN HERE

THAT'S VERY SKEPTICAL

OF YOU

THAT DOESN'T THINK THAT YOU EXIST IN HERE.

IT'S YOUR TURN TO SPEAK.

DO YOU WANT TO ASK ANYTHING, ROY?

NO, I-- BUT I HAVE AN OPEN MIND.

IF--IF THERE--IF THERE'S SOMETHING IN HERE

THAT WANTS TO TALK TO US,

HERE'S THEIR CHANCE.

THIS IS WHAT WE'RE DOING RIGHT NOW.

THE TWO LITTLE GIRLS DIED IN THIS ROOM.

RIGHT IN THIS ROOM, YEAH.

IN THIS ROOM.

LENA, INA.

IS THIS WHERE YOU WERE SLEEPING?

DID YOU HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH THE MURDER OF 1912?

WHY DON'T YOU SPEAK UP?

WHAT ARE THOSE NOISES OVER THERE?

(Nick) YEAH, WHAT WAS THAT NOISE?

(Aaron) THAT SOUNDED LIKE SOMETHING ON THE STAIRS.

WHY DON'T YOU SPEAK UP?

(Aaron) THAT'S WHAT I HEARD. I THOUGHT IT WAS UPSTAIRS.

IS THERE SOMEBODY ON THE STAIRS?

YES, WE HAVE, ROY.

(distorted voice)

(Zak) ...EVERY HOUR?

THE VILLISCA AX MURDER HOUSE

SEEMED TO BE COMING TO LIFE,

SO WE IMMEDIATELY HEADED UPSTAIRS

TO INVESTIGATE THOSE UNEXPLAINED NOISES.

(Zak) RIGHT HERE?

ARE THERE ANY OTHER CHILDREN IN HERE?

CAN YOU MAKE A NOISE FOR US?

ROY, COULD YOU FOLLOW ME OUT HERE INTO THE HALLWAY?

I'M PUTTING THE DIGITAL RECORDER IN FRONT OF THE ATTIC SPACE.

IS THERE SOMEBODY IN THE ATTIC SPACE HERE?

WHEW, IT'S WARM UP HERE, ISN'T IT?

YES, IT IS.

ALL RIGHT, LET'S GO DOWN.

(laughs)

(Zak) LET'S DO ONE MORE HERE NOW THAT IT'S SO DAMN QUIET.

WE'RE GONNA DO THE LAST RECORDING HERE.

(sighs)

READY?

AND WE'RE ON FOLDER NUMBER FOUR HERE, ROY.

OKAY.

OKAY. FUMBLING, FUMBLING, FUMBLING,

HOLDING IT ABSOLUTELY STILL RIGHT NOW.

AND IT'S NICE AND COOLER IN THIS ROOM.

IT WAS AT THIS EXACT MOMENT

DURING OUR FOURTH AND FINAL E.V.P. SESSION

THAT WE CAPTURED SOMETHING

THAT WOULD EVEN QUESTION OUR SKEPTIC ROY MARSHALL.

WE'RE GONNA GO OUT RIGHT NOW. FOLLOW ME.

WHAT I'M GONNA DO IS, IS I'M GONNA CALL BILLY,

AND I'M GONNA CALL JOHN.

THEY'RE GONNA LET US OUT. WE'RE GONNA GO RIGHT OVER THERE

TO CAPTURE THIS AUDIO AND SEE IF WE'VE GOT ANY VOICES, OKAY?

JOHN, BILLY, CAN YOU COME AND UNLOCK US OUT, PLEASE?

(walkie-talkie beeps)

YES, WE HAVE, ROY.

(Nick laughs)

ALL RIGHT, YOU READY?

WE ALSO WANTED ROY TO SIT IN AND OBSERVE THE AUDIO ANALYSIS

WITH OUR E.V.P. EXPERT ANALYST BILLY TOLLEY

TO VALIDATE THE MOMENTS OF SILENCE WHERE NONE OF US SPOKE.

AND FROM BEING IN LAW ENFORCEMENT FOR 30 YEARS,

ROY'S TRAINED SENSE OF ATTENTION

PICKED UP RIGHT AWAY ON THIS.

SURE.

(distorted voice)

(Zak) ...EVERY HOUR?

(Roy) YEAH. SOMETIMES...

HUH.

YOU DON'T REMEMBER HEARING THAT NOISE,

WHATEVER THAT NOISE IS?

SEE, AND I REMEMBER THAT SEGMENT VERY WELL, AND...

(distorted voice)

(Zak) ...EVERY HOUR?

WELL, IT'S--

MAN.

IT'S A SOUND THAT I DID NOT HEAR WHILE I WAS IN THERE.

NOT ONLY WAS ROY PUZZLED,

BUT WHEN WE HEARD THIS UNEXPLAINED VOICE,

WE STARTED DECIPHERING A DISTURBING MESSAGE.

(distorted voice)

(Zak) ...EVERY HOUR?

WAIT A MINUTE.

I KILLED SOMETHING, SOMETHING, BUT I DON'T KNOW--

WAIT, WAIT. PLAY IT AGAIN.

(Zak) I KILLED...

(Zak) ...EVERY HOUR?

I KILLED...

I DON'T KNOW.

SOMEONE SWINGING AN AX OR SOMEONE WITH ASTHMA.

I MEAN...

YEAH, EITHER ONE, YEAH.

(Zak normal voice) WE'LL EVEN SHOW YOU ON THE RECORDER

WHERE IT IS.

I BELIEVE--

WHERE IS IT? WHAT FILE IS THIS?

WE EVEN SHOWED ROY THIS UNEXPLAINED VOICE

RIGHT AS IT WAS CAPTURED

BY LISTENING TO THE DEVICE'S SPEAKER.

(Billy) YEAH, THAT'S IT.

(distorted voice)

(Zak) ...EVERY HOUR?

YEAH, YOU HEAR IT ON THERE NOW.

YEAH, HEAR IT ON HERE, TOO.

UH-HUH.

SPECIFICALLY.

YOU SEE ROY TALK RIGHT AFTER IT.

YEAH.

NO, I HEARD THE TRAIN AND--

BUT I DID NOT HEAR THAT NOISE

THAT WE'RE HEARING ON THAT.

(Billy speaks indistinctly)

AND IT'S--WHO KNOWS?

ROY ASKED THAT QUESTION,

AND WE WERE OPEN TO ANYTHING FOR FINDING AN ANSWER,

SO WE BROUGHT IN THE VILLISCA AX MURDER HOUSE

RESIDENT PARANORMAL INVESTIGATOR AND TOUR GUIDE

JOHN HOUSER ALONG WITH FELLOW INVESTIGATOR ROLAND SAENZ

TO SEE IF THEY RECOGNIZE THIS VOICE,

AND THEY DECIPHERED IT AS SAYING.

(distorted voice)

(Zak) ...EVERY HOUR?

THAT.

PLAY IT AGAIN. I HEARD THE BEGINNING, "I KILLED."

HOLD ON.

GO AHEAD.

(distorted voice)

(Zak) ...EVERY HOUR?

(whispers) "I KILLED SIX KIDS."

THE "K" IS PROMINENT.

RIGHT.

DOESN'T IT SOUND LIKE A GUY THAT'S OUT OF BREATH?

EVEN OUR SKEPTIC SAID IT SOUNDS LIKE...

SOMEONE SWINGING AN AX... (echoes)

(distorted voice)

(Zak) ...EVERY HOUR?

(distorted voice)

(Zak) ...EVERY HOUR?

(Zak) WHAT IS THE MURDERER'S NAME?

OUR E.V.P. ANALYSIS

MADE EVEN A SKEPTIC LIKE ROY MARSHALL TAKE NOTICE.

MEANWHILE, BACK OVER IN THE EMPTY HOUSE,

WE CAPTURED SOMETHING SHOCKING

ON OUR MOTION-ACTIVATED NIGHT VISION CAMERA,

AS WE WERE ALL ANALYZING THE AUDIO

IN THE BARN NEXT DOOR.

(footsteps approaching)

(footsteps approaching)

AND WHAT REALLY SHOCKED US

IS THAT RIGHT BEFORE THE DOOR SLAMMED SHUT,

YOU CAN HEAR THESE UNEXPLAINED FOOTSTEPS APPROACHING IT.

WAS THIS THE SAME SPIRIT WE HAD ANGERED

BY CAPTURING ITS THREATENING VOICE?

(distorted voice)

(Zak) ...EVERY HOUR?

COMING BACK INTO THE HOUSE,

WE HAD NO IDEA WE HAD CAPTURED THIS POLTERGEIST ACTIVITY.

(footsteps approaching)

OKAY, WE JUST GOT DONE WITH OUR E.V.P. ANALYSIS,

AND WE'RE GETTING RELOCKED IN.

ALL RIGHT, JOHN, LOCK US IN, BUD.

ALL RIGHT, SINCE WE CAPTURED THAT VOICE,

WE'RE GONNA USE THE SPIRIT BOX.

THIS THING IS GONNA SCAN THROUGH DIFFERENT RADIO FREQUENCIES

A QUARTER SECOND ON EACH STATION.

SO THAT MEANS THAT IT'S NEXT TO NEAR IMPOSSIBLE

TO HEAR A FULL PHRASE,

A SENTENCE, OR EVEN A WORD.

BUT IT'S SUPPLYING

A STEADY STREAM OF WHITE NOISE.

AND THROUGH THESE FREQUENCIES, IT'S SAID, SPIRITS CAN SPEAK.

AND LET'S SEE IF WE CAN FURTHER COMMUNICATE

WITH THAT UNEXPLAINED VOICE THAT WE CAPTURED WITH ROY, OKAY?

COOL.

YOU'LL NOTICE THERE'S NO VOICES RIGHT NOW,

NOTHING BUT JUST WHITE NOISE.

WATCH WHEN I START ASKING QUESTIONS.

IS SOMEBODY HERE?

YOU JUST TRIED TO TALK TO US IN THERE EARLIER.

ARE YOU SCARED OF US?

(man) NO.

ARE YOU SCARED OF US?

TELL ME WHAT YOUR NAME IS.

TELL ME WHAT YOUR NAME IS.

(distorted girl's voice)

THAT WAS WEIRD.

LENA IS THE NAME OF THE 12-YEAR-OLD GIRL

WHO WAS MURDERED HERE IN 1912.

IS THAT YOU, LENA?

WHOA. THAT WAS A GIRL'S VOICE.

TURN IT UP.

(distorted girl's voice)

WHOA.

ARE YOU A LITTLE KID THAT LIVES HERE?

WHAT'S YOUR NAME?

(distorted voice)

PAUL MOORE WAS THE 5-YEAR-OLD BOY

WHO WAS ALSO KILLED IN THIS HOUSE.

LET'S GO OVER HERE.

IS SOMEBODY UP HERE?

WHO'S UP HERE?

I DEMAND YOU TO TELL ME WHAT YOUR NAME IS.

HOLD ON. WHAT WAS THAT?

I DON'T KNOW.

(distorted voice)

WHAT WAS THAT?

I DON'T KNOW.

THIS WAS CLEARLY A DIFFERENT VOICE

THAN THE CHILDREN WE WERE HEARING DOWNSTAIRS,

TELLING US WE WERE NOW IN THE PRESENCE

OF A DIFFERENT SPIRIT.

I'M NOT FEELING GOOD, GUYS...

(speaks indistinctly)

AT ALL.

GIVE US A NAME. WHAT IS THE MURDERER'S NAME?

(distorted voice)

WHAT IS THE MURDERER'S NAME?

(distorted voice)

ON JUNE 18, 1912,

ANDY SAWYER WAS DETAINED BY THE SHERIFF

AS A SUSPECT IN THE VILLISCA AX MURDERS.

THE DAY AFTER THE INCIDENT,

THIS DERANGED, HOMELESS MAN MADE CRAZED MUTTERINGS

ABOUT THE MURDER TO HIS EMPLOYER

ALONG WITH SEVERAL SUSPICIOUS RELEVANT ACTIONS.

HIS EMPLOYER'S SON WITNESSED ANDY SAWYER SUDDENLY JUMP UP

AND SAY TO HIMSELF, "I WILL CUT YOUR (bleep) HEADS OFF"

AT THE SAME TIME ANDY MADE STRIKING MOTIONS.

IT WAS ALSO A FACT THAT ANDY SAWYER SLEPT WITH HIS AX.

(distorted voice)

TIME TO RE-CREATE SOME HISTORY.

IF YOU WANT TO KEEP KILLING,

PUSH THIS AX ON MY FACE.

IN THE DEEP AND DARK OF THE IOWA NIGHT,

WE DECIDED TO SPLIT UP.

ALL RIGHT, RIGHT NOW, AARON,

IT'S TIME FOR YOU TO GO DOWN IN THE CELLAR.

SORRY, DUDE.

ALL RIGHT, GO DO YOUR THING.

ALL RIGHT, MAN.

JOHN, LOCK THIS GUY DOWN IN THE CELLAR.

HE'S BEEN A BAD BOY.

MY PLEASURE.

WITH THAT SAID, RIGHT HERE IN 1912,

THIS AX WAS TAKEN OFF OF THE PROPERTY.

THIS MAY BE THE ACTUAL MURDER WEAPON,

AND WE JUST BROUGHT IT BACK IN THE HOUSE

FROM THE MUSEUM.

LET'S TAKE THIS AX UPSTAIRS

AND TAKE IT IN THE ATTIC CRAWL SPACE

WHERE THE SUSPECTED MURDERER

HID OUT.

TIME TO RE-CREATE SOME HISTORY.

(Aaron) HERE I GO.

DAMN YOU.

(Zak) I'M COMING UPSTAIRS NOW.

I WANT TO SEE WHY YOU'RE BEING SO MEAN.

IS IT BECAUSE YOU'RE LOOKING FOR THIS?

IS THAT WHY YOU'RE NOT AT REST?

IS THAT WHY YOU'VE BEEN ATTACKING PEOPLE,

SCRATCHING PEOPLE?

YOU WANT THIS AX BACK?

ZAK AND NICK ARE UPSTAIRS RIGHT NOW

WITH THE WEAPON, THE AX.

IT'S A TRIGGER OBJECT,

SO IF ANYTHING EVIL IN THIS HOUSE WOULD BE HERE,

IT'S UPSTAIRS WITH ZAK AND NICK.

SO IF THERE ARE ANY KIDS DOWN HERE

HIDING FROM THE OLD SCARY MAN,

AND YOU'RE DOWN HERE WITH ME,

CAN YOU TALK TO ME?

(crickets chirp)

IS THIS WHERE YOU HID

THE NIGHT THAT YOU BRUTALLY KILLED THIS FAMILY?

IS THIS THE AX THAT YOU USED

TO KILL EIGHT PEOPLE?

JUST THEN, MY DIGITAL RECORDER CAPTURED AN E.V.P.

THAT SOUNDS LIKE AN EVIL SPIRIT LAUGHING AT MY QUESTIONS.

IS THIS THE AX

THAT YOU USED...

THAT YOU USED...

THAT YOU USED

TO KILL EIGHT PEOPLE?

(Nick) CAN YOU ATTACK HIM?

CAN YOU DO SOMETHING TO ONE OF US?

TELL YOU WHAT I'LL DO.

YOU SEE THAT AX?

IF YOU WANT TO DO MORE KILLING...

(bleep)

SINCE THE BAD GUY'S UPSTAIRS RIGHT NOW,

AND YOU KIDS MIGHT BE DOWN HERE WITH ME,

CAN YOU TELL ME IN THIS RED LIGHT

WHO HACKED YOU GUYS UP WITH THE AX?

HACKED YOU GUYS UP WITH THE AX?

(distorted voice)

CAN YOU PUSH THAT AX DOWN ONTO HIM?

DO YOU WANT TO KEEP KILLING? PUSH THIS AX ON MY FACE.

SHOW ME THAT YOU'RE STILL HERE,

AND YOU'RE STILL HURTING PEOPLE.

YOU NEED TO LEAVE THEM ALONE.

THIS E.V.P. RESPONSE

WAS ACTUALLY CAPTURED ON NICK'S DIGITAL RECORDER.

SHOW ME THAT YOU'RE STILL HERE,

AND YOU'RE STILL HURTING PEOPLE.

YOU NEED TO LEAVE THEM ALONE.

(distorted voice)

DO YOU SEE ANYTHING AROUND ME, BRO?

NO.

DO YOU SEE ANYTHING AROUND ME?

IT'S DIFFICULT TO SEE ALL THE WAY TO YOUR RIGHT

'CAUSE OF THE DOOR--

WHERE'S THE AX, BRO? I CAN'T SEE THE AX.

IT'S RIGHT ABOVE YOUR RIGHT HAND.

YOU'RE ABOUT TO HIT IT.

ARE YOU THE REAL KILLER?

WHY'D YOU KILL THESE CHILDREN?

WHY YOU'D KILL THESE CHILDREN?

(distorted voice)

YOU'RE NOT SUPPOSED TO KILL CHILDREN.

YOU'RE THE DEVIL.

YOU'RE A SINNER.

YOU'RE A SINNER.

(distorted voice)

IT'S ICE-COLD IN HERE, NICK.

ICE-COLD?

YEAH.

THE MOST DIFFICULT ASPECT

ON INVESTIGATING THE VILLISCA AX MURDER HOUSE

IS THAT IT IS KNOWN THAT BOTH GOOD AND EVIL

ARE SAID TO HAUNT HERE,

AND IT SEEMED WE KEPT GOING BACK AND FORTH BETWEEN THE TWO.

I JUST HEARD, LIKE, TOYS ROLLING AROUND IN THIS ROOM.

BEFORE NICK HEARD TOYS MOVE IN THE OTHER ROOM,

HIS RECORDER CAPTURED THIS DISTURBING MESSAGE

REGARDING HERMAN,

ONE OF THE OTHER CHILDREN WHO WAS KILLED HERE.

(distorted voice)

ALL RIGHT, NICK BY HIMSELF LAYING ON THE BED.

I'M RIGHT ON THE BED

WHERE HERMAN, PAUL,

CATHERINE, BOYD--

THEY WERE ALL LAYING HERE

WHEN THEIR LIVES WERE SUDDENLY TAKEN FROM THEM.

CAN YOU TELL ME WHAT HAPPENED THAT NIGHT?

WHAT CHURCH WERE YOU AT BEFORE YOU CAME HOME?

WHAT CHURCH WERE YOU AT BEFORE YOU CAME HOME?

(distorted voice)

WAS THIS SPIRIT ONE OF THE VICTIMS

REFERRING TO THE CHURCH THAT THEY WERE LAST SEEN ALIVE

BEFORE RETURNING HOME?

AFTER NICK CAPTURED THAT E.V.P. AND LEFT THE ROOM,

FOUR MINUTES LATER,

OUR MOTION-ACTIVATED NIGHT VISION CAMERA WAS TRIGGERED

BY WHAT APPEARS TO BE A DARK MIST.

WAS IT FOLLOWING NICK?

ALMOST 100 YEARS AGO,

A TINY LITTLE HOME IN THE HEARTLAND OF AMERICA

WAS TRANSFORMED FOREVER FROM QUAINT AND SERENE

TO POSSESSED WITH AN EVIL

THAT MUST HAVE SPROUTED FROM THE DEPTHS OF HELL.

WANT TO KEEP KILLING? PUSH THIS AX ON MY FACE.

EIGHT LIVES SENSELESSLY ERASED BY A PSYCHOPATH,

A MURDERER THAT HAS NOT BEEN PUNISHED

FOR A CRIME THAT STILL REMAINS UNSOLVED.

(distorted voice)

(Zak) ...EVERY HOUR?

EIGHT SOULS STILL SEARCHING FOR ANSWERS.

WE WILL NEVER FORGET YOU,

AND WE WILL NEVER FORGET THE VILLISCA AX MURDER HOUSE.
