her best to stop crying. She then hears another step. Then
the sound becomes frequent, and louder. She peeks out of the
door and sees nothing. The sound of footsetps is getting
louder and closer. She looks again, and sees nothing. Then,
the sound stops, she waits in the closet for a small while.

man holding a knife, and a tape recorder. The sound of the
siren is playing on the tape, the man turns off the recorder
and runs into the woman. He tackles the woman to the ground.
The woman is screaming and hitting the man, trying to get
free. The man then covers the womans mouth. Tears are
streaming down the womans face, as the man then lifts his
knife high in the air. And quickly strikes the woman in the
face.
                                                            
 
EXT. OUTSIDE HOUSE - DAY
                                                            
Cop cars and officers are all surrounding the house just
seen. A car pulls up and stops. STEVEN MOSS, a cop then gets
out of the car. Right when he gets out a OFFICER approaches
him.
                                                            
                       STEVEN
Whats happening?
                                                            
                       OFFICER
Well sir, theres been a murder,
and a grisly one to boot.
                                                            
                       STEVEN
Really? Give me the details.
                                                            
Steven and the officer begin to walk towards the house. They
talk on the way.
                                                            
                       OFFICER
Well, the victim got multiple stab
wounds in the chest, her face,
looks like it has been removed-
                                                            
Steven and the officer walk into the house.
                                                            
 
INT. KITCHEN - DAY
                                                            
Steven and the officer walk into the kitchen.
                                                            
                       OFFICER
And, well, her throat was slit.
                                                            

3.

Steven walks over to the body and kneels down by it.
                                                            
                       STEVEN
Know who this little girl is?
                                                            
                       OFFICER
No, face missing, fingerprints
have been cut off the finger,
whole kip and kabootle.
                                                            
                       STEVEN
Must have been one sick fuck.
                                                            
                       OFFICER
Suprisingly, no rape, no prints on
the body, to my knowledge cases
like this usually have a rape.
                                                            
                       STEVEN
You got the wrong knowledge at the
wrong cop school.
                                                            
Steve gets up.
                                                            
                       OFFICER
Could it be a thrill-killer?
                                                            
                       STEVEN
Don't think so. Usually people who
want to get a rush by killing
someone, doesn't have it so
organized, and don't make so much
of an effort.
                                                            
                       OFFICER
Ex-Boyfriend?
                                                            
                       STEVEN
You like to watch alot of mystery
movies don't you?
                                                            
                       OFFICER
Whenever I get the chance.
                                                            
                       STEVEN
Figures.
                                                            
                       MAN (O.S)
      (shouting)
I see something!
                                                            
The men in the kitchen then run outside. Everyone except
steven.
                                                            

4.

                       STEVEN
It hits the fan.
                                                            
Steven then walks out of the kitchen.
                                                            
 
EXT. OUTSIDE HOUSE - DAY
                                                            
A big group of cops are looking up at a tree. Steve comes
out of the house behind them.
                                                            
                       STEVEN
      (To officer)
What is it?
                                                            
                       OFFICER
Its in the middle of the tree.
                                                            
Steve then looks up at the tree. He then sees a human face
nailed to the tree. Steve then looks away.
                                                            
                       MAN (O.S)
Someone get that down!
                                                            
Steve looks like he is about to vomit.
                                                            
 
INT. POLICE OFFICE - DAY
                                                            
Inside a police office, steve is sitting at his desk working
on a paper. His phone rings. Steve answers.
                                                            
                       STEVEN
      (Into phone)
Hello?....Yes send him in.
                                                            
Then the door across from steve opens. In walks a tall man,
mid-30s. He is ED ROBBINS.
                                                            
                       ED
What did you call me for?
                                                            
                       STEVEN
Sit down ed.
                                                            
Ed then walks over to a chair by steves desk and sits down.
                                                            
                       ED
What did you call me for?
                                                            
                       STEVEN

5.

                       ED
That murder case by the beach?
                                                            
                       STEVEN
Been reading the paper I see.
                                                            
                       ED
Yep.
                                                            
                       STEVEN
Anyway, your right. Murder last
night, and we want you to look
into it.
                                                            
                       ED
Why'd I get this case?
                                                            
                       STEVEN
Because I like your name.
                                                            
                       ED
Lucky me.
                                                            
                       STEVEN
Yep, lucky you.
                                                            
There is a long silence.
                                                            
                       ED
So... am I working with anyone?
                                                            
                       STEVEN
Well, I'll be here, but I don't
think I really count, so... no.
                                                            
                       ED
Yeah, okay.
                                                            
                       STEVEN
It's probably better that way.
Someone might just slow you down.
                                                            
                       ED
Probably. What are the facts of
the case? I mean, the paper's are
always wrong and the T.V's twice
as bad.
                                                            

6.

                       STEVEN

                       ED
Sub-urban paradise.
                                                            
                       STEVEN
Yeah. Not a place you'd expect to
see something like this.
      (beat)
To tell you the truth, I wouldn't
expect it to happen anywhere else
either. But, I wouldn't bother
going over there. I don't think
you'll find much.
                                                            
                       ED
Maybe. Were there any personal
objects left in the house?

portraits. Some picture with some
guy, they look like they're
involved.

Alright, I'm probably gonna go to
where the murder occured, see what
I can dig up.
                                                            
                       STEVEN
Don't bother. We already searched
the place, dusted for prints,
searched for DNA, don't think you
could get anything else.
                                                            
                       ED
Ok then, i'll go to that suspects
house.
                                                            
                       STEVEN

man, you would need to go there in
a group. Just in case.
                                                            
                       ED
Alright, just trying to be a good
cop.

May I help you?
                                                            
Ed pulls out his badge and shows the coroner.
                                                            
                       ED
Yeah, my name is Ed Robbins, I'm
with the NYPD homicide division, I
need to see the autopsy reports of
the woman we couldn't identify.
And it would be helpful if I could
see the body.
                                                            
                       CORONER
We get a lot of "Jane Doe's" here,
you'll have to be more specific.
                                                            
                       ED
The one from Pinewood Terrace.
                                                            
                       CORONER
Oh, her. Come this way.
                                                            
The coroner leads Ed down a hall of doors, and into the door
at the end of the hall. She opens it. She goes over to the
wall where the bodies are stored. She opens up one of the
doors, and pulls out the metal table with Gwen's body on it.
                                                            
                       CORONER
You cops find out anything about
who she might be?
                                                            
                       ED
Her name's Gwen Elizabeth.
                                                            
                       CORONER
At least you have an I.D.
      (beat)
As you know, the face was removed.
It's in a container on the table.
                                                            
Ed looks over to a table filled with containers of removed
body parts. He looks extremely disgusted.
                                                            

15.

                       CORONER
Multiple stab wounds the the back
and chest, and a large gash in the
throat. So deep as if the killer
wanted to decapitate her.
                                                            
The coroner removes the sheet covering Gwen. We see Gwen's
body and the stab wounds on her chest, and the huge gash in
her throat. Her face is gone, and only dry blood and bones
remain.
                                                            
                       ED
And you found no traces of rape?
                                                            
                       CORONER
No.
                                                            
                       ED
Did you find anything that could
help with the investigation?
Ligature marks, bruises?
                                                            
                       CORONER
No. One thing we did notice is
that the stab wounds are very
deep. If the killer didn't cut her
throat, she would've bled to death
within short time.
                                                            
The coroner turns Gwen's body over, revealing the
lacerations on her back. They are deep and numerous.
                                                            
                       ED
I think I'm just about finished
here.
                                                            
 
EXT. MORGUE - DAY
                                                            
Ed walks out of the morgue. He is wipeing his mouth with a
napkin. He probably just vomited. Eds cell phone then rings.
He takes it out of his pocket and answers it.
                                                            
                       ED
Hello?
                                                            
                       VOICE (O.S)
Hello Ed.
                                                            
                       ED
Who's this?
                                                            

16.

                       VOICE
Did you see my beauty? My Gwen?
                                                            
                       ED
Very funny asshole. Who is this?

                       VOICE
Oh, if only you knew. I think you

                       ED
..Yep, I just visited our girl.
Now could you stop mindfucking me
and tell me where you are steve? I

                       VOICE
Ed, if only that was true.
                                                            
                       ED
Oh, but it is.
                                                            
                       VOICE
Well then, guess i'll go get my
next victim.
                                                            
                       ED
      (smiling)
You go do that. Ill see you later.
                                                            
                       VOICE
Doubt it.
                                                            
The voice hangs up. The line goes dead. Then a police van
pulls up to ed. The door opens and inside are steve, and a
officer.
                                                            
                       STEVEN
Get in.
                                                            
                       ED

                       STEVEN

Ed gets into the van. Steve closes the door.
                                                            
 

17.

Inside the van. an officer is driving and in the back steve

                       STEVEN
No I was in the van. I listened to

                       ED

                       STEVEN

                       ED
Im sorry!
                                                            
                       STEVEN
Sorry doesn't raise the dead. Now,

then we have some dead body
rotting somewhere, and we have a
woman dying tonignt.
                                                            
                       ED

                       OFFICER
      (from radio)

EXT. HOUSE - DAY
                                                            
The van arrives in front of a house with police cars and
ambulence in front of it. There are cops walking all over,
and it is blocked off with police tape. Ed and Steven get
out of the van and step over the tape. They head to the
officer that was on the radio.
                                                            
                       OFFICER
Took you guys long enough.

                       STEVEN
Well, look at the consistencies.

and good-looking. They could be
supermodels.
                                                            
                       ED

there's no signs of rape or sexual
assault.
                                                            
                       STEVEN

                       ED

a necropheliac?

a plan.
                                                            
                       ED
Ok, good.
                                                            
Two cars then go past eachother. One is a pizza delivery
car, the other a old, rusted up black car. Ed points at it.
                                                            
                       ED

                       STEVEN
Yea, lets check it out.
                                                            
ed then starts the car and lets the police lights flash. Ed
then gets behind the black car. The black car slows down,
and then parks on the curve. Ed parks right behind it.
                                                            

22.

                       ED
Just say you caught him speeding.
Just in case.
                                                            
                       STEVEN
Ok.
                                                            
Ed gets out of the car. Steve follows. Ed goes up to the
black car and knocks on the window. The window goes down. In
the car is a MAN.
                                                            
                       ED
Liscense and registration, please.

                       MAN

                       ED
What other car?
                                                            
                       MAN
That car.
                                                            
The man points at the delivery car.
                                                            
                       MAN
This guy gave me fifty bucks to
switch cars for a while..

Switch cars?
                                                            
                       MAN

the sound of a gun firing is heard. A man then runs out of a
house and into the delivery car. He speeds away.
                                                            

23.

                       ED
Fuck!
                                                            
Ed runs back to the police car. He gets in and goes after
the delivery car. Steve is left and grabs the man in the
rusted up car and throws him out. Steve then gets in and
follows Ed.

Well Ed. Yesterday i had a dream

dream, I met a woman, this woman
wasn't very attractive, but worth
a look none the less. In this
dream, we met, we talked, and
yesterday I spent my whole day
thinking about her. Thinking what
if it could happen in real life,
could I be with a woman I wanted
to be with? Would she want to be
with me? Well I spent a whole day,
going insane over it. And just

paper, and what happened? I saw a

picture of her, and she looked
exactly like she did in my dream.
I don't know why she was in the
paper, I didn't read the article,
but it said her name. So I found
out where she lived, and I
introduced myself, and her
husband, her ignorant husband made
me go away, and if it's one thing
I hate, it's ignorance. So, I
killed him, and I just, might,
kill her...Unless your willing to
cooperate ....you wouldn't want me
to kill my own love would
you?...no you wouldn't...and you
wouldn't want me to kill her
daughter either, would you?
                                                            
                       ED

to make you not kill them?

killing. Simple as that, but if
your willing to keep at it, so am
I.

already dead bodys, or have alot
more? I keep my promises ed, and
this promise will make your life

You can't bring those women back
ed. You should just put it all
behind you, and file it as a
unsolved murder.
                                                            
                       ED
Ok. I'll stop.

Good boy. Oh, and if you feel like

                       ED

                       STEVEN

                       ED
Alright.
                                                            
Steve trys to get the liscense plate off the car as ed goes
into the house.
                                                            
 
INT. HOUSE - NIGHT
                                                            
Ed goes into the house. He is holding his gun close. He
walks around and goes into the living room. In the room is a
girl, possibly fifteen, tied up. She is MARISA CLARK. Ed
goes over to her and unties the ropes, and gets the tape off
thats over her mouth.
                                                            
                       ED
You alright?
                                                            
                       MARISA
My mom, wheres my mom?
                                                            
                       ED
...Don't you know?

                       MARISA
No, I don't know where she is.
                                                            
                       ED
Ok, follow me. Don't worry
everything alright.
                                                            
Ed then helps the girl get up. They walk down a hallway and
turn into the kitchen. Marisa gasps, and then screams, as
she sees a WOMANS dead body lying on the floor. Blood is
covering the floor and the walls.
                                                            
                       ED
      (yelling)
Steve!
                                                            
Marisa is crying in the corner, as ed looks like he's
noticed something. Ed then looks at a very dark trail of
blood leading to the sink. Ed follows it, and looks down
into the sink. In the sink are big scraps of human flesh and
bone, and its clogging up the sink. Ed then walks backwards
and stumbles over to a light switch, which turns on the
sinks garbage disposal. The blades then rip apart the flesh
and bone in the sink, and unclogs it. Steve runs into the
room.
                                                            
                       STEVEN
Wha-...Shit!
                                                            
The phone then rings, ed quickly runs over to it. Steve sees
a portable phone and listens.

weakness, as much as I hate
ignorance.
                                                            
                       ED

Probably not. Except for the fact
that his face is alittle mangled.
                                                            
                       STEVEN

wannabe, or just a new killer.

wife next door. We haven't been

                       ED
Wait. Are we sure this is the
suspects house?
                                                            
                       OFFICER
We're positive sir. Why do you
ask?
                                                            
                       ED
I was thinking that maybe this was
the female victims house, and
maybe the husband was cheating.
And the wife killed the husband,
and witnesses.
                                                            
                       OFFICER
Well sorry, but it's the suspects
house.

Male #1 then finishes. He then turns around to walk back to
the bonfire. But a hand grabs him, and pulls him behind the
weeds in the dune. Male #1 struggles, but is then stabbed in
the chest. He screams, but the sound of his scream is
blocked out by the sound of the two men playing gutar. Back
at the bonfire, one of the girls then makes the men playing
gutar stop.

person gets up from behind the front seat and grabs woman #2
by the mouth. Woman #2 tries to scream, but can't. The

could be possible.

Steve then runs away.
                                                            

79.

                       STEVEN

Fuck! Fuck! Fuck! Fuck!
                                                            
 
INT. APARTMENT - DAY
                                                            
Ed is sitting down next st steve. Steve has just finished
telling his story.
                                                            
                       ED
Did you see the guy?
                                                            
                       STEVEN
You think it might be ours?
                                                            
                       ED
No! We killed that fucker
yesterday.
                                                            
                       STEVEN
Then who could it have been?
                                                            
                       ED
Steve....I don't know. I just
think you should report this. Tell
the story. So no one thinks that
"you" killed them and ran away.
                                                            
                       STEVEN
...Maybe I should.
                                                            
                       ED
You have to steve.
                                                            
                       STEVEN
What if they think it was me?
                                                            
                       ED
It doesn't matter. As long as you
go and tell them you were there,
than they won't be as suspicious.
                                                            
                       STEVEN
...But...But what if they think it
was me?
                                                            
                       ED
Steve, are you still drunk?
                                                            
                       STEVEN
I think so.
                                                            

80.

                       ED
Ok, steve. We have to go. Now.
                                                            
 
INT. OFFICE - DAY
                                                            
Ed is sitting in a chair. When steve walks in.
                                                            
                       ED
So...how'd it go?
                                                            
                       STEVEN
Fine...Just wish I didn't have
such a shitty hangover.
                                                            
                       ED
Thats what happens when you drink
a shitload of beer.
                                                            
                       STEVEN
..So did anyone find out who was
there last night?
                                                            
                       ED
Nope. But we did get a letter.
                                                            
Ed picks up a envelope and shows it to steve.
                                                            
                       STEVEN
Did you open it?
                                                            
                       ED
Not yet. But my guess is that its
either fan mail, or a confession.
                                                            
                       STEVEN
Well, open it.
                                                            
                       ED
...You sure we shouldn't bring it
to the lab for prints?
                                                            
                       STEVEN
What are the chances that its a
killer note?
                                                            
                       ED
Good chances.
                                                            
                       STEVEN
Just open it.
                                                            

81.

                       ED
Ok, ok. I'll open it.
                                                            
Ed then grabs the envelope and opens it. He pulls out a
letter. He hands it to steve.
                                                            
                       ED
I open it, you read it.
                                                            
                       STEVEN
Fine.
                                                            
Steve then snatches the letter out of eds hand. He reads the
letter out loud.
                                                            
                       STEVEN
      (reading letter)
Haha you dumb shits. You killed my
so-called patsy. The man thought
he was in a movie, and he wanted
to protect himself. Sadly, I have
run out of victims, and would like
to meet you two. I'll be at the
church on thitrty-second street. A
church? Why you ask? Cause it's
the home of my savior.
                                                            
                       ED
      (sarcastically)
Praise the lord my brother.
                                                            
                       STEVEN
August 13th, at 11 A.M. Don't be
late, and I only want you two to
be there, or you will have more
blood on your hands. Signed, the
"beautiful" killer.
                                                            
                       ED
..Probably a joke mail.
                                                            
Ed then looks in the envelope, and pulls out a folded up
napkin. He unfolds it, and in the napkin is the tip of a
finger.
                                                            
                       ED
I take back my statement....Holy
shit.
                                                            
                       STEVEN
A church? Didn't really know that
a serial killer could be
religious.
                                                            

82.

                       ED
Im guessing this one is.
                                                            
                       STEVEN
What time is it?
                                                            
                       ED
It's 10:30 A.M.
                                                            
                       STEVEN
We gotta go.
                                                            
                       ED
Ill get someone to come get
that...finger...tip.
                                                            
Ed then grabs his coat, and quickly runs out of the office.
Steve follows.
                                                            
 
INT. CHURCH - DAY
                                                            
Ed and Steve walk into the church. Ed has his hand right by
his gun, but doesn't pull it out.
                                                            
                       ED
..I guess it's clear.
                                                            
Steve then walks over to a chair. He sits down. Ed then
walks over to a donation box, and puts a dollar in.
                                                            
                       STEVEN
God bless them homeless kids, eh?
                                                            
                       ED
...Yeah.
                                                            
Ed walks over to a chair thats by Steve, and sits down.
Steve then gets up and walks over to the donation box.
                                                            
                       STEVEN
I'll give them a buck.
                                                            
Ed, sitting down, then takes a gun out of his holster, While
Steve, puts a dollar inside of the donation box. Then, over
at the confession box, a sound is heard. Ed and Steve hear
it, and look at the confession box.
                                                            
                       ED
..What was that?
                                                            
                       STEVEN
Beats me.
                                                            

83.

Ed then gets up and walks over to the confession box, Steve
also walks over.
                                                            
                       ED
      (towards
       confession box)
Anyone in there?
                                                            
A long scilence..
                                                            
                       ED
We're looking for someone here,
but if your just a kid, or a
priest, someone who works here,
then just come out.
                                                            
Nothing happens.
                                                            
                       ED
      (to steve)
Im going to shoot that box.
                                                            
                       STEVEN
Don't, its probably just a rat.
                                                            
A sound is heard from inside the confession box. Ed and
Steve look, Ed then picks up his gun and shoots the box
three times.
                                                            
                       STEVEN
What the fuck are you doing?!
                                                            
                       ED
If it's a rat, its a dead rat. If
it's the killer, then hes dead.
                                                            
Ed then opens up the door to the confesion box. Inside is
Marisa Clark. Shes tied up and has her mouth taped shut.
                                                            
                       STEVEN
What in the hell is happening?
                                                            
                       ED
You shouldn't ask questions,
Steve.
                                                            
                       STEVEN
Excuse me?
                                                            
                       ED
I said...
                                                            
Ed then turns around and shoots Steve's kneecap.
                                                            

84.

                       ED
You shouldn't ask questions!
                                                            
Steve then screams in pain.
                                                            
                       ED
You stupid fuck.
                                                            
                       STEVEN
What the fuck is wrong with you?
                                                            
                       ED
....You know what I've heard? I
heard that the kneecap is the most
painful place to be shot, and the
most painful place after that is
the gut.
                                                            
Ed then crouches down and looks at Steve.
                                                            
                       ED
..How does it feel?
                                                            
                       STEVEN
      (Teary-eyed)
It hurts like hell.
                                                            
                       ED
      (grinning)
Heh, it can even make a grown man
cry.
                                                            
Ed re-loads his gun.
                                                            
                       ED
Bullets are the best thing since
sliced bread and masturbation.
                                                            
Ed then grabs Marisa and puts her on a bench. Ed then stares
at Steve.
                                                            
                       ED
..Your not going to ask me why I
shot you?
                                                            
                       STEVEN
I already did!
                                                            
                       ED
Oh..well...ok. Heres a bombshell
for ya, im the "Beauty Killer".
                                                            

85.

                       STEVEN
      (shocked)
....Your...Your fuckin' with me.
                                                            
                       ED
Steve, if I was joking, I wouldn't
have shot you.
                                                            
Steve then quickly reaches for his gun, but finds that its
not there.
                                                            
                       ED
..I see you have no gun. Thats
great, isn't it?
                                                            
                       STEVEN
....No, its not great.
                                                            
                       ED
This is when I tell you how I did
it all, right?
                                                            
                       STEVEN
Yeah, it is.
                                                            
                       ED
Before I tell you. I want to tell
you...Im not a skitzo..I do not
have a split personality...You
understand?
                                                            
                       STEVEN
Yes, I understand.
                                                            
                       ED
Good. Well, I might as well skip
to the complicated kills, because,
im itching to kill you...first
off, I did most of the kills at
night, or when I went out. Like
the elevator kill, I did that
while I was getting coffee. That
girl on the field? I hired
someone...So technically, I didn't
kill her, I just hired someone..to
kill her. I know, most of them are
the "No women, no kids" type, but
once in a while, you can find a
exception.
                                                            
                       STEVEN
Wait, but what about the girls
family?
                                                            

86.

                       ED
Good steve! Well, its like this.
The mother was already dead. The
husband came home, with the lights
out, while he was in his
"basement" trying to start the
power, I told you I had to take a
piss. Thats when I put explosives
under the car.
                                                            
                       STEVEN
...Damn.
                                                            
                       ED
Did I cover everything?
                                                            
                       STEVEN
What about that time when I was at
the bar?
                                                            
                       ED
You were drunk, you didn't see
shit.
                                                            
                       STEVEN
....Well...why the fuck did you do
it? What was your reason for
fucking killing everyone?
                                                            
                       ED
Calm down Steve, im getting to it.
                                                            
                       STEVEN
Just tell me.....
                                                            
                       ED
Ok Steve, I'll tell you...Back
about five years ago, my wife left
me with a kid. His name was
"Harry"..My name, was "John
Apatrow"..I know men are supposed
to leave the wives, but she did it
to me...Anyway, Harry was
alittle..ugly, and he didn't have
much friends..But he was happy. He
got good grades, he was smart, a
good kid...But one day, some
little "Feel bad for me" fucker,
brought a gun to school...Maybe
you heard about it in the
news..The kid killed 11
people..When he was in the
library, the guy with the gun
            (MORE)

87.

                       ED (cont'd)
walked over to him..Harry, was
studying with someone, and the guy
with the gun, shot Harry, right in
the head..And he told harry's
study partner why he did it..It
was because, quote "He was
ugly"...
                                                            
                       STEVEN
..Christ Ed.
                                                            
                       ED
So, I had to kill the "beautiful"
people, so maybe, there would be
none left. I fuckin' dispise them,
their sarcasm, their cockiness,
their egos, they all deserve to
die...In my opinion, of course.
                                                            
                       STEVEN
Its not their fault they were born
good-looking Ed.
                                                            
                       ED
I don't really care if they are
good looking, maybe they're good
people on the inside, but good
looking people, make other people,
look down on the average looking
people..The philosiphy is..If you
have a nice face, a good body, and
maybe are rich, it's like you have
a liscense to make other people
feel like shit.
                                                            
                       STEVEN
Thats not always the case Ed.
                                                            
                       ED
Steve, im almost done with your
bullshit. So im going to cut to
the chase...Your boring me..
                                                            
Ed then walks over to the girl and brings her over to Steve,
he puts a gun to her head.
                                                            
                       ED
Do you have any more questions? Or
can I just splatter this girls
brains on the confession box?
                                                            
Steve then sees that Marisa is trying to untie a knot thats
keeping her hands tied.
                                                            

88.

                       STEVEN
Wait...Um..what about the
conversations on the phone?
                                                            
                       ED
I recorded the killer's half of
the conversation and played it on
one line, and I talked on the
other line. Simple as that.
                                                            
                       STEVEN
..Well...whats your sign?
                                                            
                       ED
      (smiling)
Birth sign? Capricorn.
                                                            
Marisa then quickly unties the rope and grabs Eds gun, then,
at point blank, she shoots ed in the chest. Ed then screams,
and falls down on the ground...dead. Marisa then runs over
to Steve and helps him up. She sits Steve down on a chair.
                                                            
                       MARISA
..You ok?
                                                            
                       STEVEN
I should be asking you.
                                                            
                       MARISA
Im fine, but you were the one who
got shot in the kneecap.
                                                            
                       STEVEN
Im fine, im fine.
                                                            
Ed then gets up. Marisa quickly turns around and shoots. But
theres no bullets in the gun. Ed then opens his jacket and
reveals a bullet-proof vest.
                                                            
                       ED
Do you really think im that much
of a idiot? Do you really think
you could kill me?!
                                                            
                       STEVEN
Ed, shes just a girl!
                                                            
                       ED
Shes a girl who shot me in the
chest at point fucking blank!
                                                            
Ed then walks over to Marisa and punches her in the face.

89.

She falls on the ground, unconscious. Ed then takes off his
bulletproof vest. He also picks up the gun in Marisa's hand
and then takes some bullets out of his pocket and loads the
gun.
                                                            
                       ED
I can't fucking breathe with that
vest on.
                                                            
                       STEVEN
You dickless piece of shit...
                                                            
                       ED
You call me that while im holding
the gun?
                                                            
                       STEVEN
I don't give a fuck if you blast
the back of my head open, you are
a fucking, pathetic, piece of
shit.
                                                            
                       ED
....Well...Im the piece of shit
with a gun.
                                                            
Ed then cocks the gun.
                                                            
                       ED
I bid you, good day.
                                                            
Marisa then hits Ed in the back of the head with a wooden
plank. He falls down, bleeding from the back of the head.
Marisa runs over to Steve and tries to untie him. Ed begins
to get up, so Marisa runs back over to him and grabs the
gun. She points it at Ed.
                                                            
                       ED
Your gonna shoot me? What a load
of shit.
                                                            
Ed then lets out a exagerated laugh.
                                                            
                       ED
Your not gonna shoot me.
                                                            
                       MARISA
I already did.
                                                            
Marisa then shoots Ed in the chest. He screams in pain and
then lies down on the ground, but doesn't die.
                                                            
                       STEVEN
Untie me, untie me.
                                                            

90.

After messing with the ropes for a while, Marisa unties
Steve. She quickly runs over to the door to open it, but
it's locked.
                                                            
                       ED
      (weak)
I have the key.
                                                            
Marisa then turns around and looks at Ed.
                                                            
                       ED
I have it. Theres no other way out
of here. Unless you can reach
those windows.
                                                            
Ed the points at a stained glass window about fourty feet
off the ground.
                                                            
                       STEVEN
Ed...Wheres the key?
                                                            
                       ED
Did you hear me you fuck-hole?
      (sits up)
I have the key.
                                                            
                       STEVEN
Give me the key Ed.
                                                            
                       ED
No.
                                                            
                       STEVEN
Just give me the key Ed.
                                                            
                       ED
Nah, I don't want to.
                                                            
Marisa then walks up to Ed pointing the gun at him.
                                                            
                       ED
Oh, please, didn't your daddy tell
you that it's impolite to point?

                                                            
                       STEVEN
Listen, it's all over, we just
wanna get out of here. Give Marisa
the key.
                                                            

91.

                       ED
Just call someone and tell them to
get you out of here. There's no
reason to shoot me for not giving
you a key.
                                                            
                       MARISA
Your forgetting something. You
killed my mom, and the longer I
stay in here with you, the more
tempted I am to shoot you.
                                                            
                       ED
      (mocking)
Please, just fucking shoot me. Put
me out of my misery. You already
shot me, just do it again and kill
me this time.
                                                            
                       MARISA
Fine, if thats what you want,
                                                            
Marisa then points the gun at Ed, and pulls the trigger.
Right as she does, Ed pulls a gun out of his pocket and
shoots Marisa in the shoulder. The bullet Marisa shot misses
Ed. Marisa falls to the ground.
                                                            
                       ED
Yes! Thats how you shoot!
                                                            
                       STEVEN
Fuck!
                                                            
Someone knocks on the front door from the outside.
