One you are out of the car, follow the linear path and you will approach a gate. The gate will be locked, so you will have to go left from here and follow the patch to the parked van. Interact with the van and take a look at the leaflet on the backside of the car.

Crouch through their and continue on and drop down from there, ahead you will find a bag in the ashes, investigate it and you will find a driver’s license and add it to your inventory.

After playing the VHS tape you need to activate the same switch in the fireplace and make your way to the basement through the secret door. From here the path is pretty mush linear, go through the submerged corridor into the basement. Walk around the cages until there is a table on your left and a gated cell ahead.

The phone in the corridor will ring and a voice will tell you to go to the attic. Continue down the corridor and take the room to the right where you had the fight and you will find the corpse has disappeared, just collect the axe.

The door at the end of the corridor will unlock, take the door and you will find yourself back outside the Living Room where you played the VHS tape.

How To Reach The Attic
To be able to get to the attic you will have to activate the fuse box in the living room. To get the fuse, make your way to the kitchen and once you reach the door at the other side of the kitchen there will be a chained closet. Use the bolt cutters and open it to find the fuse.

To slow her down try to use the wooden beams between you and her whenever you can, however, she can saw them down. Start shooting at her again and after 10-15 shots she should go down.
