They wander for over an hour, looking for help and eventually come across an old, dark house in the middle of the swamp. Mary thinks the house looks familiar. It is the same house she saw in her nightmare, the night before.

In her nightmare, she was lost and wandering around a swamp when she came to the old house. When she knocked on the door, it was answered by a creepy old man and a strange old woman who looked like they came from a horror movie.

The weird couple invited her inside, but then she heard a strange gugling sound behind her. There was a terrible stench in the air and she saw something come crawling towards her from the darkness… a hideous blob with eyes and tentacles. Then, she woke up screaming.

As the blob drags Mary into the darkness and devours her, Fred and Gloria don’t lift a finger to help. Fred reveals that he is having an affair with Gloria and this is all part of their plan. He lured Mary to the house so they could get rid of her and he and Gloria can be together.

Fred goes back to the car and sinks it deep in the swamp so no one will ever find it.

When he gets back to the house, he finds the creepy old man and the strange old woman there. They tell him they are Gloria’s parents and the hideous blob is Gloria’s brother. When he asks where Gloria is, they tell him she is “changing into something more comfortable…”
