Take your brother outside as fast as you can!
Dad’s on a hunting trip.
And he hasn’t been home in a few days.
This is dad’s book. I think dad wants us to pick up where he left off.
Saving people, hunting things.
Family business. Do you think Mom wanted all this for us?
I can’t do this alone.
Man, these are some phat houses, huh?
I’d like to live here.
Too bad you can’t afford it.
Yeah, you’re right.
This neighborhood will be damn expensive when it’s done.
This place is perfect…
…Except for the mosquitoes.
Help me, I’m trapped!
I broke my ankle.
I’ll get a rope!
It’s okay, Dustin. It’s okay.
Dustin, I’m here.
You know, we could get day jobs once in a while.
And the pay is crap.
It’s not the most honest thing in the world, Dean.
Well, let’s see… Honest…
Fun and easy…
It’s no contest.
We’re good at it. It’s what we were raised to do.
How we were raised was jacked. Yeah, says you.
We got a new gig or what? Maybe.
Oasis Plains, Oklahoma. Not far from here.
Supposedly died from creutzfeldt-Jakob.
Human mad cow disease. Mad cow?
Wasn’t that on “Oprah”?
You watch “Oprah”?
So this guy eats a bad burger. Why is it our kind of thing?
Mad cow disease causes massive brain degeneration.
Okay, that’s weird. Yeah.
Or it could be something much
All right, Oklahoma.
Man, work, work, work.
No time to spend my money.
Yeah, that’s right.
Are you the Travis who worked with uncle Dusty?
Dustin never mentioned nephews.
Well, he sure mentioned you.
He said you were the greatest.
Oh, he did?
So, we wanted to ask you…
What exactly happened out there?
I’m not sure.
By the time I got back…
What’d you see?
No wounds or anything?
So do you think it could be this whole mad cow thing?
I don’t know.
That’s what the doctors are saying.
He would have acted strange beforehand, like dementia, loss of motor control.
You ever notice anything like that? No.
Yeah, but if it wasn’t some disease, what the hell was it?
That’s a good question.
Can you tell us where this happened?
What do you think?
But if that guy Travis was right, it happened pretty damn fast.
Some sort of creature chewed on his brain?
No, there’d be an entry wound.
Sounds like this thing worked from the inside.
It looks like there’s only room for one.
You want to flip a coin?
Dean, we have no idea what’s down there.
All right, I’ll go if you’re scared.
Flip the damn coin.
Call it in the air…
I said I’d go.
Don’t drop me.
In a hole in the ground.
That’s shocking, Sam.
No evidence of any other kind of creature down there.
You know, some beetles do eat meat.
Now, it’s usually dead meat, but… How many did you find down there?
It would take a whole lot more than that to eat out somebody’s brain.
Well, maybe there were more.
I don’t know. It sounds like a stretch to me.
Whether something like this has ever happened before.
I know a good place to start.
I’m kind of hungry for a little barbecue, how about you?
What, we can’t talk to the locals?
And the free food’s got nothing to do with it? Of course not.
