The next morning the crew continue their drive to the house when they come across Sheriff Morrison (Ricardo Palacios) and Deputy Dan (Luis Maluenda), who are standing at a barricade. The police warn the crew that there has been another “attack”. After the crew leave, the sheriff and his deputy are both killed by the Monster Dog in the woods.

Vince and Sandra chase after him. Later when they get to the house the find the carnage and Vince finds a book about werewolves…
