How had she let her mother talk her into this? The oldest house in the state she had to believe, and remodel it in front of cameras for all the world to see. She groaned as the make-up and lighting people were working on her and over her. Her mom, was in her glory and loving every second of it.

They opened the door and stepped inside. It was far worse than she'd anticipated. there were treads missing in the staircase and floorboards were visibly sagging. They walked the camera men through the house and her mom was talking a mile a minute about this and that, and what they were going to do. But they went down into the basement and could not believe their eyes.

What was in the basement? what happens next?

A team of remodelers tries to renovate a house only to find that its wooden frame is so rotted that it would be practically impossible to do it without completely rebuilding. As they exit the house to talk to their superiors, they're transported to another realm where everything is rotten and falling apart- and going inside doesn't fix anything.

"It's haunted."

"Julianne, for the last frigging time, it is not haunted. Old houses settle."

"Do old houses typically moan? Do they turn the water on by themselves? Do they fling cabinets open?"

"Your imagination. The plumbing's wonky. And there's a bad draft."

"I can't believe you! You really wanna remodel this piece of extremely haunted territory! You think this is worth it!"

"We bought the house for 10,000 dollars honey. I am gonna live here if Baphomet himself is downstairs knocking around, okay?"

"Oh, and with your luck, it would be. Along with Mephistopheles, and Lucifer, and Old Scratch, and--"

"Babe, those are all the same guy."

"You know what I mean! The place is haunted! Haun. Ted."
