Nothing really. He was being an
arrogant jerk, like always.
Well thatís just how he is. Just
let whatever it was go and not let
it bother you.
I just donít understand why he

going with me?
Awe hell naw. At least one of you
are coming with me.
      (continued silence)
Alright, fine then! Iím choosing
someone. Tanisha come on!
Excuse you? I've already been up
there once and I didn't like what
I saw. I don't want to go again.
Well I didn't either, but
something is going on up there. We
need to find out what we are up

of phobia when it comes to bees.
How come you never told us this?

She didnít even get a chance.
I'm going to miss her so much..
I hate to seem heartless right
now, but we need to think about us
right now, if you want to live.
Personally, I think we should go
after this guy.
We canít just go after him. What
if heís armed?
That's a risk we're just going to
have to take.
Do we have to go outside? It's
kinda dark out there.


Why? You scared or something?
Uh, I hate to bring this up rihgt
now, but I'm kind scared of the

You're scared of the dark? It

MS of Riley shrugging
Well I'll be.
Hey do you see anyone or anything?
LS of Riley, Jessie, Kyle, and Davon walk outside the door

a little late for all of that.

From Cameron Date 3/2/2008 **1/2
You could have done without all the camera angles. I lovd the plot though it was great. What is the ending though?

From Cayleigh Date 3/11/2005 1/2
Too. Many. Camera. Angles. AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! Enough said.

From justin preece Date 2/7/2005 *
this format is awful, this isnt a shotting script, dump the angle descriptions and tell the story. and i didnt really read much of the story, but it did not seem all that good, and like the previous review, Van Helsing scary lmao, scary in terms of how horrible it is. no imagination

From J.J Date 2/6/2005 *
This is not even fun to read because of the camera angles. I might have given it a higher grade if you took those out. By the way, who said Van Helsing is supposed to be really scary???? It's not. At all.
