                       NARR
You forget how deadly they can be-
how much destruction they can
bring. But what if someone had
something worse than an 'A' bomb
or the 'H' bomb? What if those
with the device wanted to destroy
earth. Yes, a passionate burning
desire to demolish our homes. Such
a thing has happened, not too far
in the future. The events we
unfold to you are the truth. Not a
single fact is misrepresented.

LAURA SAMUEL and her husband, JEB SAMUEL, are seated,
drinking tes, and arguing.
                                                            
                       LAURA
Honey, take it. It's more bread
for the table.
                                                            
                       JEB
I would...But I don't think I can
handle the responsability of being
a partner.
                                                            
                       LAURA
It's just more paperwork.
                                                            
                       JEB
I can't handle paperwork.
                                                            
                       LAURA
You always seem fine with it.
                                                            
                       JEB
But I hate it. I won't accept the
promotion. I've made my mind up.
                                                            
                       LAURA
Oh, Jeb.
                                                            
                       JEB
No! Nothing will change my mind.

                       LAURA
Jeb Samuels, you listen to me. You
are going to accept that promotion
like it or not, what with a little
one coming and all. We need that
money, and you'd better darn well
get us some.
                                                            
JEB rises out of his seat and pulls LAURA up as well. Ready
to smack her, he delivers a small speech:
                                                            
                       LAURA
Now look her, wife. I give
everything to my country and God.
I fought in two wars. I know
freedom's values. So I'm not going
to bend to some woman who thinks
she can control me. Got that
Laura?
                                                            
He smacks her across the cheek.

                       NARR
Little did the couple forsee the
events outside their domestic

Taken aback, the couple wondered
what could be disturbing them at
such an our in their lives.
Surely, this was just chance,
simple circumstances...or was it
fate?
                                                            
                       LAURA
What was that?
                                                            
                       JEB
I don't know.
                                                            
                       LAURA

No, stay here with me.

It's nothing. I'll just go see.

good girl for a man to be with.
Unlike this one here.

                       TIFFANY
Now nothing ties you down, my
love.

Yes.
                                                            
                       TIFFANY
come closer so I might hug you.

                       OTHER GEN.

nothing, nothing at all to stop
the terror spreading throughout
the nations. Rioting. Looting.

what to do.
                                                            
 
INT. UNDERGROUND BUNKER - DAY
                                                            
It's hard to tell whether it is night or day. A PRESIDENT

                       PRES
I have no idea what to do.
Wolcott!
                                                            
                       GEN. W.
Yes, sir?
                                                            
                       PRES
What options do we have?
                                                            

11.

                       GEN. W.
Not many, Sir.

That answer is unnacceptable.
                                                            
                       FIRST LADY
Honey...
                                                            
                       PRES
This is the time to be stern, damn
it. I don't want to make my
predessesor's mistakes. They
forced us into war. We';; have to
give them Hell. What do we know
about these 'visitors', General?
                                                            
                       GEN. W.
Not much, Sir. In the early
sixties, they appeared in our
skies, but apparently a small town
group drove them off. It seems
they planned to use zombies-
walking dead- to kill us.
                                                            
                       PRES
You're certain these are the same
Aliens?
                                                            
                       GEN. W.
Yes sir, Mr. President.
                                                            
                       PRES
Then what can we do, Damn it?
                                                            
                       GEN. W.
I'm afraid we don't hav a
reasonable answer.

Then tell me an unreasonable one.

                       COL
General.
                                                            

12.

                       GEN. W.
Colonel
                                                            
                       COL
What's the matter.
                                                            
                       GEN. W.
Tell me your news first. It's bad,
isn't it?
                                                            
                       COL
Yes, I'm afraid it is.
                                                            
                       GEN. W.
Then tell me, already.
                                                            
                       COL
Sir, New York has fallen.
                                                            
                       GEN. W.
To those monsters?
                                                            
                       COL
I'm afraid so, sir. Now sir, tell
me what's wrong.
                                                            
                       GEN. W.
That.
                                                            
                       COL
What?
                                                            
                       GEN. W.
That we can't stop them. We've
tried everything.
                                                            
                       COL
There's still the Solarbinite.
                                                            
                       GEN. W.
No! Absolutely not. That's not an
option.
                                                            
                       COL
But-
                                                            
                       GEN. W.
We don't know what it can do. We
already took too many risks with
the H and A bombs...So why chance
the S Bomb if it's much more
powerful.
                                                            

13.

                       COL
With all due respect, sir, -
                                                            
                       GEN. W.
No. We won't use it unless
absolutely neccesary. I saw
Hiroshima - no one deserves that
or worse. Ready a device to
explode Solarbinite, but do not
use it unless I give word. Is that
understood, Colonel?
                                                            
                       COL
Perfeclty, Sir.
                                                            
They snap off salutes to each other.
                                                            
                       GEN. W.
Dismissed.

Ah, Terra and wife...How is the
mission?

It is going well, Space Leader. We

Earth cities of great importance.

Just after dawn. People are camping. They seem to have been

How long have we been out here?

I don't know. Like, a month?

Think we can go back now?

That's not fair.

No, it isn't. Not to me or to you.
But now we've married, he can't do
anything.

Yes, love. Lets.
                                                            
As they continue to pack up, the androids creep through the

her longingly.

My name is Tiffany. You may have
me, if you want.

Oh, I do. I do want you.

What? Johnny! Johnny, don't you
love me?

Not anymore, Missa. I love 'Tiff'
now.
                                                            
                       JOHNNY
Johnny...
                                                            
MISSA sobs, as TIFFANY reaches out and strangles JOHNNY.
Another android somes out of the woods and changes the body
into an android. The body rises and makes its way toward
MISSA.
                                                            
                       JOHNNY
Missa, my love...

Don't. It may be our only hope.

We have a new technology, a new
weapon. From what I understand, it
explodes the sun's rays.

Destroying everything in its path?

Oh.

I see. Not a viable option, then.

two thirds of Earth's population
converted into them. We even
started getting reports of

Your point?

Better to mercy kill us all than

Nice work. You captured the essence of Ed Wood's style. The dialog is great. My only complaint is that there's no real visual humor that was in Plan 9. Nothing in the way of Tor Johnson's rising from the dead. Overall, though, the script is a clever spoof on the B-movie genre.

From Rex Macaroe Date 7/23/2005 ***
Loved it. It's clever, funny, and true to the nature of the original. It's a little too epic, and I would've liked to see more visual gags, but you still managed to master the mastery of the master of horribly good movies. Nice work.
