  • QUOTES (4)

    • Male EVP 1: Not my life.
      Male EVP 2: I'm okay.

    • Aaron: (to the man who died inside the showers) I'm sorry that you died in here. I think that's a wrong thing for them to have done. I really think that when you go out, you need to go out...not in a shower. And not naked.

    • Zak: (after hearing a noise near the showers where a man was gang raped to death) We hear you making noises, and I'll tell you what. Because you've been making noises for us, I told you I'd give you a gift. Our gift to you is Aaron.
      Aaron: (looking horrified, locked in the shower room) Dude!

    • Zak: (referring to the spirits said to be haunting the prison) When darkness arrives, seems like they're coming out of their cells to play with us. And I'm ready to play!

  • NOTES (0)

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • Zak: (as he climbs a snake infested hill) The ground is moving! I swear, this is Indiana Jones!
      Zak is making a reference to the 1981 adventure film Raiders of the Lost Ark, in which the archaeologist Indiana Jones (played by Harrison Ford) sees an entire floor of a buried room he has to enter covered with poisonous snakes. At first, he doesn't realize that the snakes are there, however- the floor just seems to be moving.
