The Curious.

They say he collects strange tales...

0:00:040:00:07

..and if you ever hear his whistle,

0:00:070:00:09

you know something creepy is about to unfold.

0:00:090:00:12

No-one knows where he's from, or where he's going to,

0:00:140:00:18

or if he has a family.

0:00:180:00:19

Are these tales drawing him away from home...

0:00:210:00:24

..or bringing him closer to one?

0:00:250:00:28

Have you ever wondered what your parents were like at your age?

0:00:280:00:32

What if you had the chance to meet them?

0:00:320:00:35

Do you think you'd be friends?

0:00:350:00:37

-KNOCKING

-Vincent?

0:00:440:00:46

Vincent, we're here.

0:00:470:00:49

Can we call Mum, tell her we're here?

0:00:570:01:00

She sent us away. She can call us.

0:01:000:01:02

She never sent us away.

0:01:020:01:04

Andrew Jablonowski!

0:01:070:01:09

Oh, I never thought I'd see my big brother back at Bundanoon.

0:01:090:01:13

Look at you! Look at you!

0:01:130:01:16

Oh, you got big, Vinny.

0:01:170:01:19

Er, Vincent. He's too old for nicknames.

0:01:190:01:22

Too old for nicknames?

0:01:220:01:23

I bet your mum still calls you Vinny.

0:01:230:01:26

Come on, let's get you inside.

0:01:260:01:28

Right, I'll go and get the kettle on.

0:01:280:01:31

Oh, look how tall you are!

0:01:310:01:33

Can't get over what a handsome little gent he's grown into.

0:01:330:01:36

Gets his height from his mother's side.

0:01:370:01:39

That's pure Sophie, that.

0:01:390:01:41

I appreciate this.

0:01:420:01:44

-You putting us up.

-Don't be stupid.

0:01:440:01:48

Well, it won't be forever.

0:01:480:01:49

Good. Does that mean you'll finally get over yourself,

0:01:490:01:52

call your wife and sort this nonsense out?

0:01:520:01:54

It means that I'll be finding my own place.

0:01:540:01:57

A new home.

0:01:570:01:58

Hey? AJ?

0:02:070:02:08

I'm fine.

0:02:090:02:11

-Auntie Jean?

-Hey.

0:02:220:02:24

-You get a good look around?

-Mm-hm.

0:02:260:02:29

It's nice.

0:02:290:02:31

Your dad and I grew up here, you know?

0:02:310:02:33

It's such a weird place.

0:02:330:02:34

Your dad couldn't wait to leave.

0:02:340:02:36

Took off as soon as he was old enough, but me, I...

0:02:360:02:39

I'd miss it too much.

0:02:390:02:41

Why don't you go and explore?

0:02:410:02:43

Go on. I'll make us some lunch.

0:02:430:02:45

EERIE WHOOSHING

0:03:110:03:13

Vincent, you stay away from that well!

0:03:130:03:16

If you go near there again,

0:03:180:03:19

you will be banned from the g-garden.

0:03:190:03:21

-Do you understand?

-Hey! Don't shout at him.

0:03:210:03:24

I told him to go and explore.

0:03:240:03:26

I've not heard that stammer for a long time,

0:03:310:03:34

which means he's stressed. Don't be too hard on him.

0:03:340:03:36

When your dad was younger, he had a best friend...

0:03:420:03:45

..a boy called Red.

0:03:450:03:46

Red disappeared down that well.

0:03:480:03:50

From then on, everything just seemed to unravel for your dad.

0:03:530:03:56

Got really weird around here.

0:03:580:03:59

CREAKING

0:04:350:04:38

DOOR CREAKS

0:04:510:04:54

Whoa!

0:05:330:05:34

Whoa.

0:05:450:05:47

Weird.

0:06:050:06:06

VOICES IN DISTANCE

0:06:160:06:18

Fire, fire, fire. He's going to do it. Fire, come on!

0:06:180:06:22

No, don't distract me.

0:06:220:06:24

-There's too many of them.

-Hello?

0:06:240:06:26

Come on, you can do it.

0:06:260:06:28

-Easy, easy...

-Careful, AJ.

0:06:280:06:30

Don't make me say it twice, young lady.

0:06:300:06:32

Mum, AJ's getting close to hitting the highest score on Asteroids ever!

0:06:320:06:37

Bath, now!

0:06:370:06:39

Sorry, AJ.

0:06:390:06:40

-Who are you?

-Sorry, sorry.

0:06:520:06:54

I got lost, and, erm...

0:06:560:06:58

..I somehow ended up in...

0:06:590:07:00

..your cellar.

0:07:040:07:06

How'd you end up in the cellar?

0:07:060:07:08

What does AJ stand for?

0:07:130:07:14

Andrew Jablonowski. P-p-pleased to meet ya.

0:07:150:07:19

-Who was that girl?

-My sister.

0:07:230:07:25

That's Jean, ignore her.

0:07:250:07:26

Are y-you OK?

0:07:280:07:30

This isn't next door.

0:07:320:07:34

This is Bundanoon.

0:07:340:07:36

Yeah...

0:07:360:07:37

1985?

0:07:400:07:42

W-wait, where are you going?

0:07:440:07:46

Take me back.

0:07:500:07:52

What?

0:08:100:08:11

You OK, sweetheart?

0:08:140:08:15

I didn't sleep so well.

0:08:180:08:19

-Auntie Jean...

-Mm?

0:08:210:08:23

You ever noticed anything weird about the cellar?

0:08:230:08:27

Oh, well, I don't like to go down there.

0:08:270:08:30

Why?

0:08:300:08:32

No reason.

0:08:320:08:33

Hey, make yourself useful today, will ya?

0:08:350:08:38

Put your stuff away...

0:08:380:08:39

..and no more games.

0:08:400:08:42

Try and get some fresh air, too. I don't understand you kids.

0:08:420:08:45

When I was your age, we were always outside.

0:08:450:08:47

Where'd it go?

0:09:070:09:09

-COMPUTER GAME BEEPS

-OK, you can do this.

0:09:170:09:20

You know what to do, so just take it steady.

0:09:200:09:24

Oh, hey. You're back. Oh, cramp! I've got a cramp in my leg.

0:09:250:09:29

Grab the joystick!

0:09:320:09:35

Joystick?

0:09:350:09:37

Oh, the controller.

0:09:370:09:38

-One button?

-How many do you need?

0:09:400:09:42

Fire!

0:09:420:09:43

That's it. That's it!

0:09:480:09:51

Hey, you're pretty good at this.

0:09:530:09:56

-You play Asteroids?

-Nope, first time.

0:09:560:09:58

How long have you been playing?

0:10:010:10:03

Since ten last night.

0:10:030:10:04

I had to wait for my parents to finish watching Dallas.

0:10:040:10:06

What's the record score?

0:10:070:10:10

41,336,440.

0:10:100:10:13

Kid stayed awake for two nights to get it.

0:10:130:10:16

Almost killed him.

0:10:160:10:17

Oh, man.

0:10:200:10:21

-Sorry.

-No probs.

0:10:220:10:25

Got my whole life to beat it.

0:10:250:10:26

You want to go outside?

0:10:280:10:29

Outside?

0:10:300:10:32

Why?

0:10:320:10:33

Come on, I'll show you my Star Wars collection.

0:10:350:10:37

You like Star Wars too?

0:10:510:10:52

D-doesn't everyone?

0:10:530:10:55

Who's your favourite character?

0:10:560:10:58

Mine's Han Solo.

0:10:580:11:00

Yeah, wait till you see what happens to him in the latest one.

0:11:000:11:03

Latest what?

0:11:030:11:04

So, Asteroids.

0:11:060:11:09

I didn't know you played games.

0:11:090:11:11

I mean, you seem kind of good at it.

0:11:110:11:13

I'm going to b-beat the world record if it kills me!

0:11:130:11:16

Why's it so important?

0:11:160:11:17

II don't stammer when I play it.

0:11:190:11:21

I should get back.

0:11:230:11:24

-My dad will be going nuts.

-You just got here.

0:11:240:11:27

Your dad sounds lame.

0:11:270:11:29

Do you want one? Take it, II've got loads.

0:11:360:11:39

I'm obsessed with these things.

0:11:390:11:40

ANDREW SNIFFS

0:11:460:11:48

Dad?

0:11:590:12:01

Do you want some gum?

0:12:040:12:05

Dad?

0:12:060:12:08

No, I don't.

0:12:080:12:10

You sure? It's great.

0:12:100:12:11

How many times, Vincent? No gum, OK?

0:12:110:12:13

Where did you get that?

0:12:210:12:23

Corner shop.

0:12:240:12:25

Limited re-release apparently.

0:12:250:12:28

Go on.

0:12:280:12:29

I haven't had these since I was a kid.

0:12:470:12:50

Used to drive my mum crazy sticking gum all over the house.

0:12:520:12:54

Yes!

0:13:070:13:09

Would you look at you?

0:13:190:13:21

I need to get on.

0:13:250:13:27

For a minute there, I could have sworn I saw your dad smile.

0:13:320:13:36

Nice work.

0:13:360:13:38

We've been playing for hours!

0:13:430:13:46

You'll have to take over soon. My hands are turning to claws.

0:13:460:13:49

And look at your eyes. You look like the Emperor!

0:13:490:13:52

-SINISTER VOICE:

-Your people skills are no match

0:13:540:13:57

for the power of the dark side.

0:13:570:13:59

Mind if I get a drink?

0:14:010:14:03

Go for it, Red.

0:14:030:14:04

What did you just call me?

0:14:040:14:06

That's your name from now on.

0:14:060:14:08

Red for your Emperor eyes.

0:14:080:14:11

I can't be him. I can't be!

0:14:280:14:30

I don't want to talk about Red, Vinny.

0:14:320:14:34

It upsets your dad.

0:14:340:14:35

Please, I have to know.

0:14:360:14:38

How did it happen?

0:14:410:14:42

Honestly, I don't... I don't know.

0:14:460:14:49

I remember I was going for a world record, too.

0:14:510:14:54

100 skips a minute.

0:14:560:14:58

And then...

0:15:000:15:01

..I heard your dad shouting.

0:15:030:15:05

Red, no! Come back, please.

0:15:050:15:07

No, Red! No!

0:15:070:15:09

And I remember this weird sort of light...

0:15:110:15:15

Mum!

0:15:150:15:17

..and then it was gone.

0:15:170:15:18

I asked him, but he never wanted to talk about it.

0:15:220:15:24

The only time I saw him react

0:15:260:15:27

was when he smashed up his games console.

0:15:270:15:30

It's like a piece of him had broken and it never got fixed.

0:15:320:15:36

Red?

0:15:390:15:40

Red?

0:15:410:15:43

I s-s-said, is your dad going to let you s-sleep over?

0:15:430:15:47

-No way!

-It's the only w-way we're going to beat this record, man.

0:15:470:15:52

What's his problem?

0:15:520:15:53

He's kind of stubborn, like you.

0:15:530:15:56

I like him already.

0:15:560:15:58

You know that's not something to be proud of?

0:15:590:16:02

Never been a p-problem so far.

0:16:020:16:04

Maybe if you just talked for once, things wouldn't seem so bad.

0:16:050:16:10

Your wife wouldn't leave, and your family would stay together.

0:16:120:16:17

What are you talking about?

0:16:170:16:18

Wife? I'm never getting married.

0:16:180:16:21

Are you g-going to help me jump this thing, or what?

0:16:230:16:25

On your marks, g-get set...

0:16:280:16:32

..go!

0:16:320:16:33

You go get it. I'll set this up again.

0:16:410:16:43

No, you set up last time. I'll do it.

0:16:430:16:46

What does he love to do?

0:16:540:16:56

Huh?

0:16:570:16:59

Your dad. Maybe if you both do something that he likes doing,

0:16:590:17:04

then he'll r-relax a bit.

0:17:040:17:07

Then you can get through to him and then you can sleep over!

0:17:070:17:11

Yes!

0:17:330:17:35

Erm, Dad?

0:17:400:17:43

Not right now, Vinny... Vincent.

0:17:430:17:46

-Look what I just found.

-What did I just say?

0:17:480:17:51

Auntie Jean says you never beat the world record.

0:17:580:18:00

So, I thought maybe we could do it together.

0:18:000:18:03

-This is broken.

-It was.

0:18:040:18:07

I fixed it.

0:18:070:18:08

Vincent, it'll take hours to beat this record.

0:18:120:18:16

Days.

0:18:160:18:18

That's what you're doing here, isn't it? Taking time.

0:18:180:18:22

That's what Mum said.

0:18:230:18:25

So, take it.

0:18:260:18:27

Oh!

0:18:410:18:42

GAME BEEPS

0:18:420:18:46

I've still got it.

0:18:570:18:58

Vincent?

0:19:160:19:17

Vinny? Vinny? Look at the score.

0:19:190:19:22

-Look!

-41,336,000...

0:19:220:19:25

..350, yeah.

0:19:250:19:28

OK, just keep calm.

0:19:290:19:32

-Steady.

-I never get past this bit.

0:19:320:19:34

I always get stuck.

0:19:340:19:35

Then we'll get through it, together.

0:19:350:19:38

Come on, steady.

0:19:410:19:43

That's it. Come on.

0:19:430:19:45

-BOTH:

-42 million!

-We did it!

0:19:530:19:57

Yes!

0:19:570:19:58

42 million, 42 million!

0:19:590:20:02

Yes!

0:20:020:20:03

Where's it gone?

0:20:140:20:17

It's outside.

0:20:170:20:19

It's getting weaker.

0:20:380:20:41

It's running out.

0:20:410:20:42

AJ, breakfast.

0:20:470:20:49

One, two, three, four...

0:20:510:20:54

-Red?

-I came to say thanks.

0:20:550:20:59

What you said about my dad, it really worked.

0:20:590:21:02

I haven't seen him that happy since...

0:21:020:21:05

-..forever.

-Cool, come on in.

0:21:050:21:07

Mum just made b-butterscotch Angel Delight.

0:21:070:21:10

M-Mum, Red's here.

0:21:140:21:17

It's today.

0:21:200:21:23

And I remember this weird sort of light.

0:21:230:21:29

Red disappeared down that well.

0:21:290:21:31

From then on, things just seemed to unravel for your dad.

0:21:320:21:36

This is it. This is how I go down the well.

0:21:360:21:38

But if I don't go down, I can't get home.

0:21:420:21:44

I can't stay. I can't!

0:21:480:21:50

Red?

0:21:540:21:56

I can't let AJ see me disappear.

0:21:560:21:58

You staying or are you going?

0:22:000:22:02

I can't do it to him. I can't.

0:22:040:22:06

I'll never see home again.

0:22:140:22:16

Red?

0:22:170:22:18

Oh, is your dad going to be mad?

0:22:210:22:23

If it helps, mum said you can sleep over.

0:22:230:22:27

Come on, then.

0:22:270:22:28

It's back.

0:22:360:22:38

Red, you coming or what?

0:22:400:22:41

AJ...

0:22:430:22:44

..you're the best friend I ever had.

0:22:460:22:48

Er, OK, weirdo.

0:22:520:22:55

-I need to go.

-Cool, Red.

0:22:550:22:57

-Smell ya later.

-Yeah...

0:22:570:23:00

..much later.

0:23:000:23:01

Oh!

0:23:110:23:13

I knew there was something weird about this place.

0:23:220:23:26

Mmm, smells good.

0:23:290:23:31

Dad, you can cook?

0:23:320:23:35

What are you talking about, Vinny? I always do a roast on a Sunday.

0:23:350:23:39

Who's the extra place for?

0:23:390:23:41

Hey, love.

0:23:410:23:43

Mum?

0:23:430:23:44

Fate, the turn of events beyond a person's control...

0:23:570:24:01

..predetermined by a supernatural power.
