EXT. HOUSTON, TEXAS - DAY
                                                            
IT IS HOT OUT, AS A BOY SCOOTERS THRU THE STREETS.
                                                            
(BOY takes a left at a sign that says WALL STREET.)
                                                            
ALLEN HEARS SOMEONE SHOUTING IN THE DISTANCE.
                                                            
                       DAD
      (Shouting)
ALLEN! ALLEN ITS TIME FOR DINNER!
                                                            
Allen stumbles a little then turns around and heads to his
HOUSE.
                                                            
 
INT. ALLENS HOUSE - DAY
                                                            
CUT TO- ALLEN opening his HOUSE'S door. He parks his scooter
on his porch, takes off his helmet, and walks inside,
shutting the door behind him.
                                                            
                       ALLEN
What are we havin' dad?
                                                            
                       DAD
Your mother's makin spaghetti! Go
wash your hands and come sit down.
                                                            
                       ALLEN
Alright
                                                            
ALLEN advances to the RESTROOM and closes the door behind
him. Faint sounds of water running come through the door.
ALLEN comes out a little bit later, and goes to the DINNING
ROOM.
                                                            
 
INT. DINNING ROOM - NIGHT
                                                            
ALLEN and DAD are seated as MOM puts SPAGHETTI platters on
the table, and then she sits down, and then everybody starts
to eat.
                                                            
                       MOM
      (After wiping face)
So Allen, how was school today?
                                                            

2.

                       ALLEN
      (Shrugs shoulders)
I guess it went okay, mobbed as
usual.
                                                            
                       DAD
Were they fat chicks?
                                                            
MOM glares at DAD and he regrets his question.
                                                            
                       MOM
Nevermind that, how did your math
test go today?
                                                            
                       ALLEN
      (Happily)
Well I aced it. And I only mised 1
question on the Science test. And
I aced the history test too.
                                                            
MOM smiles and claps her hands in congratulations.
                                                            
                       ALLEN
Im kinda tired from riding my
scooter all day, Im gonna go to
bed.
                                                            
                       MOM
Ok honey, but brush your teeth
first.
                                                            
                       BOY
Alright.
                                                            
 
INT. ALLENS BEDROOM - NIGHT
                                                            
                       ALLEN
      (Yawns)
                                                            
Allen falls asleep, outside his window, something is
happening. A truck marked with the BIOHAZARD sign tips over
and the chemicals spread all over the place. Nobody is even
aware of the disaster that is about to come.
                                                            
 
INT. ALLENS ROOM - DAY
                                                            
Allen awakes from his slumber, and notices fog around his
house, and questions the weatherman's reports from
yesterday.
                                                            

3.

Allen walks down to his living room after getting dressed,
and finds its empty.
                                                            
                                         CUT TO-
                                                            
Allen is frantically running around every room in his house,
and doesn't find anyone.
                                                            
                       ALLEN
      (Panicking)
Oh no! Oh crap! Where are they?
                                                            
Allen runs out the door.
                                                            
 
EXT. FOGGY PLACE - DAY
                                                            
ALLEN runs thru the foggy streets. And then feels something
very lightly touching his arms, and body. It is snow.
                                                            
                       ALLEN
What the hell? It never snows in
Texas!
                                                            
ALLEN continues to run until he sees something. He sees the
FIGURE standing in the streets.
                                                            
                       ALLEN
      (Shouts)
HEY! HEY YOU! WHATS HAPPENING? DID
YOU SEE MY PARENTS?
                                                            
The figure floats toward ALLEN, and it suddenly hits ALLEN
that its not even human.
                                                            
                       ALLEN
      (Screamings.)
STAY AWAY! IM WARNING YOU!
                                                            
                       FIGURE
      (GROWLS)
                                                            
The figure fly's toward ALLEN, and blood flies all over the
place.
                                                            
                       ALLEN
Holy!
                                                            
Allen barely dodges the FIGURE. And begins to dash, not
knowing where to go, just hoping that somewhere safe was in
this town.
                                                            
 

4.

EXT. ANOTHER PART OF FOGGY PLACE - DAY
                                                            
Allen runs, and then stops to catch his breath. Then before
he is completely ready, he sees something very disturbing. A
burnt, mangled, and chopped up body of his friend TRACY
WOODS. And Allen gets infuriated, he spots a pistol by
Tracys mid-section, and picks it up.
                                                            
                       ALLEN
You guys better run, im gonna
frickin kill you damn psychos.
                                                            
Allen runs across the street, and finds a little palm-pilot
looking thing, and picks it up. It immediatly responds.
                                                            
                       PALM-PILOT
      (Buzzes)
Hello ALLEN WELLER! I am
G-Sphincter 120. I am a device
made for tracking WIZARDS and
UNKOWN CREATURES.
                                                            
                       ALLEN
Wait a minute, what are WIZARDS?
                                                            
                       G-SPHINX
      (Buzzing continues)
Judging your brain's image
function, I think you've
encountered one already.
                                                            
                       ALLEN
You mean those freaks are what you
call WIZARDS?
                                                            
                       G-SPHINX
Precisely! Let me tell you why the
WIZARDS are here. And more
importantly...why you're here.
                                                            
 
EXT. A CHURCH BUILDING - NIGHT
                                                            
                       G-SPHINX
You see Allen, the WIZARDS have
over-polluted their land,
therefore, they have come to
diffrent places, and are doing
what you could call, expanding
WIZARDLAND, their home.
                                                            

5.

                       ALLEN
So, you mean that, these guys came
to Texas, so they could, make more
room for their land?
                                                            
                       G-SPHINX
I believe that is what I said.
                                                            
                       ALLEN
So, what kind of creatures besides
WIZARDS are here?
                                                            
                       G-SPHINX
Well my database has 5 types, but
there might be more. I will tell
you about the basic 5. 1st is the
WIZARD, the second is the ELFMEN.
The ELFMEN are the ones WIZARDLAND
sends to murder people to excavate
and destroy their homes. The 3rd
is the WASP, this is WIZARDLANDS
main scout division, they are very
weak, but very fast. The fourth is
the MOLE, this is a very worthy
adversarie, he has the ability to
burrow underground and strike back
up with startling force. The 5th
is...DATA ERROR. Im sorry ALLEN, I
seem to be having a problem with
my memory, maybe I'll have it
later. Uh -Oh
                                                            
                       ALLEN
What?
                                                            
                       G-SPHINX
There is a creature in this
Church.
                                                            
                       ALLEN
      (Turning off
       safety on pistol)
What is it?
                                                            
                       G-SPHINX
The ELFMAN
                                                            
Suddenly an ELFMAN jumps out of the darkness, ALLEN fires
his gun, ripping 5 slugs into its chest. The ELFMAN falls
down, and it lights up and explodes, guts, intestines, and
its heart all fly up into the air. Blood then begins to pile
into the church.
                                                            

6.

                       G-SPHINX
Oh dear! We must leave now!
                                                            
                       ALLEN
Why?
                                                            
                       G-SPHINX
The ELFMAN is activating its
DESTRUCTION MECHANISM, its blood
will flood the place, we must
leave now.
                                                            
                       ALLEN
Whoah! Lets go!
                                                            
ALLEN shoves G-SPHINX into his pocket, and dashes out the
door.
                                                            
 
EXT. FOGGY PLACE - DAY
                                                            
ALLEN dashs through the town, he shoots at oncoming WIZARDS.
They drop dead.
                                                            
                       G-SPHINX
We must get to the WIZARDLAND
exit! It's the only way to get out
of this place. But I heard that an
army of them guard the gate. So
we'll need a disguise.
                                                            
Allen walks over to a dead wizard, he rips off its cloak.
And dons it.
                                                            
                       G-SPHINX
Now lets hurry, the WIZARD'S will
be closing the pathway soon.
                                                            
                       ALLEN
Hold on a second...let me ask the
question I've been meaning to
ask...why am I here?
                                                            
                       G-SPHINX
I...I don't know the answer
to..um...that question.
                                                            
                       ALLEN
Your lying..tell me the truth!
                                                            
                       G-SPHINX
The WIZARDS, they...they
um....they used you as a test
subject. They wanted to know if

7.

                       G-SPHINX (cont'd)
humans could survive in an
enviroment like this.
                                                            
                       ALLEN
      (Shouts)
WHAT?
                                                            
                       G-SPHINX
I was the one who suggested it.
                                                            
                       ALLEN
So you have been lying to me all
along....
                                                            
                       G-SPHINX
Allen let me say something.
                                                            
                       ALLEN
      (Shouts)
NO! I TRUSTED YOU, BUT YOU STABBED
ME IN THE BACK! YOU ARE GONNA STAY
HERE! WHERE YOU DON'T CAUSE
ANYMORE TROUBLE!
                                                            
Allen throws G-Sphinx to the ground. There are some
electrical buzzes, and a click, and then G-Sphinx's light
goes off.
                                                            
                       ALLEN
Dang..
                                                            
G-SPHINX turns on again. And the truth comes out..
                                                            
                       G-SPHINX
5th creature...Allen Weller of
TEXAS.
C---C---Cons---Considered---the
most---dan---d---dangerous--
                                                            
G-Sphinx's light goes off for the last time.
                                                            
                       ALLEN
What?! That's not possible! I
can't be one of them!
IT..IT...oh....I think I know what
I am...and thats not one of them.

BOY hands Allen a CLOAK.
                                                            
                       ALLEN

                       BOY

                       BOY
Now that I notice it, you look
ridiculous.
                                                            
BOY begins to laugh and laugh.
                                                            
Then cut to hands around BOYS neck. And the screen goes
black.
                                                            
 
EXT. FOGGY PLACE - DAY
                                                            
Allen is on his knees sobbing.

TRACY...Im sorry for all thats

Allen takes GUN out of his pocket.
                                                            
                       ALLEN
I've gotta make things right
again...I've gotta do this.
                                                            
Allen reloads GUN, then pulls it to his head.
                                                            
                       ALLEN
      (Sniffs)
                                                            
Allen has tears in his eyes, as the CAMERA PANS to the

Its a pretty different idea. I don't know if I like the idea of wizards and elfmen but its interesting and unique which is great. There is a lot of work that needs to be done here. It should definately be expanded. Allow more time before the biohazard disaster and the action. Build up the story and the characters so we can come to know them better and understand them. Also allow time to let the audience understand what is happening in the town. There are some problems with the script layout too. Names only need to be capitalized when they are first introduced and as character cues for dialogue. Don't use so much capitalization. Only capitalize the words that need more attention. What you have here is really good. Expand on it and keep up the good work.

From Justin D. Miller Date 4/9/2008 ***
I would watch this film, but the script needs lots of work, it would be too complicated for the typical movie goer, luckily I've read tons of Stephen King shorts. But, really I dig the concept. Keep writing, the industry needs this.
