Transcript:

Have you ever found something strange in a new house?  That is what happened to a woman in Arizona!  When Annabell moved to a new house with her family, they became suspicious when they found a large mirror attached to the wall.  They couldn’t get the mirror off, as it was firmly attached to the wall.  They decided to cut the wall around the mirror.  They found that it was a two-way mirror. Behind the two-way mirror was a secret room with wires to connect to cameras, and also some strange cupboards.  Who was being filmed? And who was doing filming?
