Audio is horrible in the first half, but the second half is good. Stick with it through the audio troubles, it’s worth the twist ending.
As best as can be told through the monstrous static and record noise, Ernest Chapel is a man named Dave, and is meeting with an old friend. Through the one sided conversation we learn the unheard man has stolen away Dave’s girl years ago. To deal with the trauma, Dave goes away for years. He holds a variety of jobs, including going to war in the Army, and a job at a penitentiary. The girl ends up dead in a car crash. Was it suicide? It doesn’t seem like a thing she would have done.
Dave seems like a man who has all the time in the world on his hands. He also has a focused purpose that has brought him to this moment, and doesn’t have much longer. The longer he talks, the more nervous his disembodied pal seems to become. Why would that be? What was his job at the prison?
If you haven’t already guessed what the dirt, and skeletons are that haunt in the closet, stand by for the big reveal. A truly spooky ending from beyond the grave. Too bad the audio in the first half is so messed up.
