On the website it's a beautiful two-story house right next to a lake and a forest everything looks great but the owner is kind of weird he's a tall old man with a sly grin he gives the keys to matt and lucy and wishes them to have fun then the owner gets on the motorcycle and drives off .

When there's almost no distance it's a fake two-way mirror this is when you see yourself but someone on the other side is watching you to know for sure matt presses his eyes against the mirror cupping his hands around them so the light wouldn't interfere with the view he's trying to .

See something on the other side and he notices matt sure there's another space behind the mirror and somebody's looking at him shocked he removes it from the wall and discovers a small dark room what the a jolt surges through his body as he hears lucy scream from the neighboring room matt runs to her she .

Looks scared and points at the window matt sees the house owner watching them from the forest matt grabs lucy's hand and leads her to the exit we're leaving this place now he presses the handle but the door won't open he tries to put the key in the lock but something gets in the way in most cases if the key doesn't fit you .

Just need to grease the lock but if the problem appears suddenly you need to replace it this is because someone tried to crack it to get into your house but also someone could insert a microphone or other device into the lock to eavesdrop on you matt tries to get out through the window but it's locked from the outside he throws a chair into the .
