In the quaint town of Willow Creek, where cobblestone streets meandered through charming cottages, Alex and his wife, Emma, built a life filled with love and laughter. Alex, an ex-military man with a stoic demeanor, found solace in the peaceful moments with Emma, a vibrant journalist always seeking her next adventure. Their days were filled with shared smiles, cosy dinners, and the warmth of companionship that transcended the ordinary.

One day, Emma embarked on a solo journey to capture the essence of an abandoned bungalow for a documentary she was producing. Alex, understanding the risks of her profession, kissed her goodbye, his eyes filled with both pride and concern. Little did they know that this would be the last ordinary day of their lives.

As Emma ventured into the desolate bungalow, the once lively atmosphere morphed into an eerie silence. The air grew heavy with anticipation, and the aged structure seemed to hold memories that whispered through its decaying walls. Alex, sensing unease, couldn't shake the feeling that something was amiss.

Days passed with no word from Emma, prompting Alex to leap into action. His military instincts kicked in, and he tirelessly searched for his missing wife. Filing a complaint with the authorities, he utilized his skills to track her last known location, leading him to the foreboding bungalow.

Upon arrival, the scene was surreal – the ageing structure stood as a testament to time, its dilapidated appearance heightened by the encroaching darkness. Alex discovered one of Emma's slippers near the entrance, and a chilling breeze seemed to whisper secrets of the past.

Inside, he stumbled upon Emma's abandoned phone, its screen displaying a video that sent shivers down his spine. The footage began innocently as she explored the bungalow, but as she descended a narrow path, the video glitched. Emma's screams echoed, and the recording abruptly ended, leaving Alex paralyzed with fear.

Determined to unravel the mystery, Alex pressed on, guided by an ominous melody that emanated from the shadows. The deep, echoing notes intensified his sense of foreboding as he traced Emma's footsteps. The atmosphere shifted, glitching like the video on her phone, and he heard her scream once more.

Suddenly, everything reverted to normalcy, only for Alex to discover his shirt soaked in blood. A dagger protruded from his chest, a ghastly wound that left him breathless. In the surreal silence, he turned to find Emma, her eyes reflecting a mix of horror and sorrow.

Their eyes locked, and in that poignant moment, Alex felt a surge of emotions. The connection that had defined their lives now transcended reality. Emma, possessed by an unseen force, wept uncontrollably as she took her own life, leaving Alex in a twisted dimension of grief and horror.

As hours passed, Alex regained consciousness beside Emma's lifeless body. Desperation filled him as he cradled her in his arms. In a haze of sorrow, he decided to escape the malevolent bungalow with her lifeless form.

But at the entrance, a surreal revelation awaited. Emma, dressed in the same attire, walked toward the bungalow to begin the documentary she had recorded the day before. Bewildered, Alex realized they were trapped in a time-altering space, reliving the nightmarish events over and over again.

As the old music played, the bungalow seemed to mock them, ensnaring their souls in an eternal dance between reality and nightmare. The echoes of Emma's screams lingered in the air, haunting the desolate corridors, sealing their fate in a never-ending purgatory of horror. The walls of the bungalow held not just their memories but also the essence of their unending torment, as the echoes of the past reverberated through the twisted corridors, sealing their souls in a haunting loop of despair.
