Purpose

The "Derelict House Footage" is meant to be used on the VHS player in the living room. The footage is meant to reveal where the switch is to access the hidden room is located. Watching the entire tape will cause the Back Door Key to spawn, the Fuse to despawn, and the Creepy note to change and appear in next to the TV.

Depending on the player's action, they can cause the drawer in the kitchen to be unlocked giving access to the Axe.

Once the drawer is unlocked within the footage, Ethan can grab the coin.
