Present Day - 1983
Sam, now 22 years old and a student at Stanford University, has spent the evening at a Halloween party with his girlfriend, Jessica. In bed that night, he hears the sound of someone walking around the house. Getting up to investigate, he finds his brother Dean, who he hasn’t seen in two years. Dean explains that their father has gone missing while hunting a supernatural being.
He talks Sam in to going to look for their father and they travel to Jericho, CA, where they discover their father's journal in a motel. Because of what they find in the journal, they start tracking the "Woman In White", a ghost of a woman who drowned her own children and now kills good Samaritans while she is hitchhiking. They finally manage to exorcise her, but Sam is anxious to get back to his college. He goes home and his girlfriend meets the same fate as his mother; on the ceiling and bursting into flames. Dean saves him the same as when they were little. And so now they hunt.
