Synopsis
A man and a woman enter a creepy house when they are confronted by a spectral figure. The woman is terrified and wishes to flee, the skeptical man assures her the figure can only be hoax to frighten away the ignorant. He even reaches out to touch it, despite her objections. After he has made contact with the figure, he says even the house looks normal now and that it must have been some hypnotic spell that made it appear dilapidated. The woman backs away from him, horrified by his skeletal appearance, and shrieks "No! It looks normal to you now...Because you're DEAD!"
