Jud Crandall: [from trailer] Sometimes, dead is better.
Louis Creed: Hug your daughter.
Louis Creed: [from trailer] GAGE!
Rachel: [to Louis] Don't... bury... me in that place...
Ellie: Am I dead?
Jud Crandall: It was a myth. Kids used to dare each other to go into the woods at night. They knew the power of that place. They feared it. Those woods belong to something else. The ground is bad. It maybe just some crazy folktale, but there is something up in those woods, something that brings things back. Sometimes dead is better.
Jud Crandall: She won't come back the same.
Jud Crandall: It's not some campfire story.
[referring to the symbols on the trees from the drawing in the book]
Louis Creed: I saw these on the trees up there.
Jud Crandall: They're warnings. The local tribes carved them before they fled. They fear that place. There's something up there, something that dates way back.
