    • QUOTES (2)

      • Jared: (after hearing the EVP "I'm here") Maybe it's trying to reassure us that it's okay to come in and work this place over. You know? Letting us know, 'Hey, I'm here.' If it was the other way around and I was a ghost and he was me, I'd be telling him the same thing.

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Tommyknockers:

        Duck was driven off the job after he hears tapping he attributes to "Tommyknockers". These are the Cornish version of Leprecauns, and stories of their presence in mines were brought over to the US in the early 1800s. Sometimes they were seen by miners as dwarven banshees, warning of impending deaths, by others as the malevolent spirits who killed miners who doubted their powers, and sometimes, they were said to knock loudly on the wall's of the mines when the miners were approaching a particularly rich vein of ore.

        Horror writer Stephen King also wrote a book titled Tommyknockers, which was later made into a TV mini-series, but the book's plot had nothing to do with the legend itself, besides the title being inspired by the Cornish rhyme King remembered from his childhood:

        Late last night and the night before,
        Tommyknockers, Tommyknockers, knocking at the door.
        I want to go out, don't know if I can,
        'Cause I'm so afraid of the Tommyknocker man.
