The girls jump and go wild. Suddenly Tammy stops and sits
down and pouts.
                                                            
                       KIMMY
What's wrong Amber?
                                                            
                       TAMMY
Yeah whats wrong. If it's because
of what I said to Brian the other
day...
                                                            
                       AMBER
No...its something I'm too afraid
to talk about.
                                                            
                       TAMMY
      (with Kimmy
       chiming in)
Come on..you can tell us. We're
your BFF's.
                                                            
                       AMBER
Well, last night I was on youtube
searching for a video about guess
what.
                                                            
                       TAMMY AND KIMMY
Cheers!
                                                            
                       AMBER
Well, anyway I found this video
and it said at the beginning "Do
not watch."

                       KIMMY
So you didn't watch it did you?
                                                            
                       AMBER
      (Breaking down and
       crying)
Oh..I just had to. You know how I
am. Well I saw very disturbing
images. It was so scary. But the
worst part was...
                                                            
                       KIMMY
      (and Betty)
Oh no what?
                                                            
                       AMBER
My cell rang and voice said that I
will get detention for seven days.
                                                            
                       KIMMY
      (and Betty)
Oh my god! You can't get
detention you're a cheerleader.
                                                            
                       TAMMY
OMG! Seven days! You would miss
cheering at the big pep assembly!
                                                            
                       KIMMY
OMG! You would be in the awful
smelly room with who knows what
kind of loser!
                                                            
                       ALL THREE GIRLS
Ewwww!
                                                            
                       KIMMY
Then I bet that video is just a
hoax and someone was pranking you.
You know a lot of people are
jealous of us.
                                                            
                       AMBER
Well.. maybe you're right.

Jigsaw at the microphone.
                                                            

5.

                       JIGSAW
Listen up kiddies. Your
disrespect and slacking off
disgust me. It's time for some
new rules. The following
infractions will cause any student
to get seven days of detention.

reason. No excuses! Number two,
being in the hall at any time even
after school is out without a hall
pass. Number three, not having a
pencil in class. Number four, not
having an eraser for your pencil
in class. Number five, not

                       BOY 2

on my sleep while I'm here in
detention.

wonder where the key is.
                                                            
The camera focuses on the three jars.
                                                            
                       BOY 1
I see something in the bottom of
those jars.
                                                            
                       BOY 2
I see it too. It looks like keys.
                                                            
                       BOY 1
I bet one of those keys fits the
locks to our chains. We can get
out. We'll just get the keys out
of the jars.
                                                            
                       BOY 2
Hey wait a minute, what's in the
jars.
                                                            
                       BOY 1
Hmm, there's a label on here.

The boys do paper, rock, scissors, and boy 1 loses.
                                                            
                       BOY 1
I'll try the frog guts first. I
did some dissection in biology and
it didn't bother me too much.
                                                            
                       BOY 2
I hope it's the right key and we
can get out of here.
                                                            
                       BOY 1
Well you owe me big time. . . here
goes.
                                                            
Boy 1 unscrews the lid to the jar of frog guts. When he
does, both boys gag and make faces like they are smelling
something awful. He reaches into the jar and gets the key.

into the jar for the key. He tries it on the lock and it
doesn't work.
                                                            
                       BOY 1
But there's just one more jar.
We'll get the key and be out of
here and we'll be able to wash up
and get away from this smell.
                                                            
                       BOY 2
That figures. I'm not sticking my
hand in dog poo. That's it.
                                                            
                       BOY 2
Okay paper, rock, scissors for the
last jar.

perk up.
                                                            
                       KIMMY
Oh there's our admirers again. No

out with them.
                                                            
All through girls smile and act like they will be noticed
but the three boys ignore them. The camera zooms in on the
boys.
                                                            
                       FB PLAYER 1

Norris because he doesn't get
frostbite. He bites frost.

I'm sorry dearie, I'm just a
school counselor.
                                                            
                       AMBER
Oh, well, I thought you could help
me. You see I watched this video

that...
                                                            
                       MRS. FAR
Oh that's like the time Fluffy one
of my forty-seven cats had kittens
under the Christmas tree. Well,
we didn't notice it for awhile and
just kept putting gifts under the
tree. Well, pretty soon those
little kittie needed a cat box and
guess what they did?
                                                            

13.

Amber keeps glancing at the clock.
                                                            
                       AMBER

Far.
                                                            
                       MRS. FAR
      (acts like she
       didn't hear Amber)
Of course I'm not sure how many we
have now. Let's see last time I

tree...
                                                            
                       AMBER
I have really got to go or I will

                       TAMMY

                       AMBER
Would you mind moving? I'm going
to be tardy.
                                                            
                       GRUDGE
Sumimasen. (soo-mee-mah-sen)
                                                            
                       AMBER
      (getting
       angry..voice is
       getting louder)
I can't understand you. Now get
... out.. of... MY WAY!!!
                                                            
She pulls on the door and tries to force it open. Then the
bell rings.
                                                            
                       AMBER
Why you little...now I'm tardy!
                                                            
She looks down at the floor and wet trail is seen going back
to the stall. She turns around to head to the stall and a
toilet flushing is heard.
                                                            
She is over the toilet talking to it.
                                                            
                       AMBER
Come back here. (she reaches into
the toilet and sloshing water
sounds are heard)
                                                            
 
INT. 29. HALLWAY: KIMMY AND TAMMY - DAY
                                                            
                       KIMMY
I'm glad Mrs. Turner gave us a
pass so we can check on Amber.
                                                            
                       TAMMY
I'm really worried about her.

Get back here you little freak.
I'm going to give you a good
whomping for making me tardy.
                                                            
She begins flushing the toilet.
                                                            
                       AMBER
I know I'll flush you back up!
                                                            
Kimmy and Tammy enter and hear the commotion.
                                                            
                       KIMMY
Amber, are you okay?
                                                            
                       TAMMY
I don't think you'll be able to
talk your way out of this tardy.
                                                            
                       AMBER
      (sinking to the
       floor)
Oh...no...

                       TAMMY
Amber can't miss the big pep
rally. We have to get her out of
detention.
                                                            
                       KIMMY
Good luck with that. Do you think
that video she told us about has
anything to with it.
                                                            
                       TAMMY
Well, there's only one way to find
out. Bring you laptop and meet me
after school.
                                                            
 

18.

INT. 32. DETENTION ROOM: AMBER - DAY
                                                            
Amber is sitting alone in the detention room trying to read
or do homework. She hears a strange sound and quickly looks
around. She is acting like she is terrified.
                                                            
 
INT. 33. STAIRS: KIMMY AND TAMMY - DAY
                                                            
Both of the girls are sitting on the stairs working on their
laptops.
                                                            
                       KIMMY
I really don't want to look for
that scary video. What if we get
detention too?
                                                            
                       TAMMY
Then we can get Amber out.
                                                            
                       KIMMY
How are we gonna do that?
                                                            
                       TAMMY
There's no way they will keep
three cheerleaders in detention.
Who will lead the big pep
assembly?
                                                            
                       KIMMY
Hmm..I guess you're right. Okay
I'm on youtube. What do we search
for?
                                                            
                       TAMMY
Just try scary cursed video.
                                                            
Both girls type on their computers.
                                                            
                       KIMMY
Hey, is this it?
                                                            
A close-up of Kimmy's scene shows a video of cheerleaders
doing clumsy things.
                                                            

19.

                       TAMMY
That's just wrong not scary. I
don't think that is it.
                                                            
Both girls search again.
                                                            
                       TAMMY
I found it! It says 'cursed video
do not watch'.
                                                            
                       KIMMY
Let me see.
                                                            
There is a cut to the cursed video which is a dumb version
of the video in The Ring.
                                                            
                       KIMMY
That wasn't really scary...just
dumb.
                                                            
A cell phone is heard ringing.
                                                            
                       TAMMY
      (tossing her cell
       phone to Kimmy)
OMG! You answer it.
                                                            
                       KIMMY
      (tossing the phone
       back to Tammy)
No you.
                                                            
The girls toss the phone back and forth until it stops
ringing.
                                                            
                       KIMMY
Oh that's a relief.
                                                            
The rings again but with a different sound.
                                                            
                       KIMMY
      (looking at her
       cell phone)
Oh, it says I have a voice mail.
                                                            

20.

Kimmy listens to the voice mail. A weird voice is heard
coming from the phone but what it is saying is not
recognizable.
                                                            
                       KIMMY
Uh, Tammy, I think we're going to
get detention.
                                                            
 
INT. 34. DETENTION ROOM: AMBER - DAY

pom pom s and quietly begins working on a cheer. Her back
is to the window. Suddenly Tabith appears behind mimicing
Amber. Amber turns around in the cheer, sees Tabitha, and
screams.
                                                            
 
INT. 35. STAIRS: TAMMY AND KIMMY - DAY
                                                            
                       TAMMY
Before we get detention, we need
to figure out what this video
means or where it comes from. That
could help us get out.
                                                            
                       KIMMY
Let's look at it again.
                                                            
The girls watch it again.
                                                            
                       TAMMY
Stop it there! Hey that's the
library. Can't we get still get
information there?
                                                            
                       KIMMY
Hey, yeah you're right. I know
it' just books, but maybe we can
figure out what's going on.

Tammy and Kimmy come through the library doors. It is dark
except for a light at the checkout desk. Tammy nudges Kimmy
and points to the light. The camera pulls back and two
hooded figures are seen following the girls. The figures
catch up to the girls and grab them. The girls scream. The
figures drag them to the front desk where there is a strange
woman dressed in 18th century clothing.
                                                            
                       LIBRARIAN
      (Pauses and looks
       over girls before
       speaking)
Are these two those we do not
speak of?
                                                            
                       KIMMY
      (struggling with
       hooded figure)
Hey what are talking about?
                                                            
                       TAMMY
      (also struggling)
We're just here to look for this
symbol. (they show the librarian a
piece of paper with the AR symbol
on it)
                                                            
                       LIBRARIAN
So you want to stay with us in the
village. Let's check the records.
Your names please.
                                                            
                       TAMMY
Okay this is getting really weird.
                                                            
                       KIMMY
Our names are Kimmy and Tammy. Are
you gonna let us go now?
                                                            

22.

                       LIBRARIAN

computer). No overdue books, no
missing books. Yes you may go.
Just remember do not go beyond the
symboled books.
                                                            
                       TAMMY AND KIMMY
okay
                                                            
The girls are released and the librarian hands them a
lantern.
                                                            
                       LIBRARIAN
Here so that you can find your
way.
                                                            
 
INT. 38. DETENTION ROOM: AMBER AND TABITHA - DAY
                                                            
Amber looks up at an empty room. She creeps up to the
window and slowly rises to look at the window. Tabitha
suddenly appears shaking the pom poms. Amber screams.
                                                            
 
INT. 39. LIBRARY: TAMMY AND KIMMY - DAY
                                                            
Tammy begins shining the light up and down the library
stacks. They find a books with the AR stickers on them.
                                                            
                       KIMMY
Remember don't go beyond the
symbols.
                                                            
Tammy continues moving the light along the books and
suddenly cries in alarm.
                                                            
                       TAMMY
Oh Oh I'm out of the symbols.
                                                            
The Cheer Wanabe pops up behind them and startles them.
                                                            
                       CHEER WANNABE
Oh hi! I want to be a cheerleder
sooo much. Oh please just let me
do one cheer with you.
                                                            

23.

                       KIMMY
Umm, I don't think so.
                                                            
                       TAMMY
Go away you wanabe cheerleader.
We've got business to take care
of.
                                                            
Cheer Wanabe pouts and stomps off.
                                                            
Tammy continues to shine the light along the books and finds
one with a piece of paper sticking out of the top.
                                                            
                       TAMMY
Hey what's this?
                                                            
She pulls out the paper and looks at it. The camera zooms
in on a tardy slip. It has "Tabitha" written on it and
unexcused tardy marked. Tammy turns the paper over and it
says "The forgot me in detention."
                                                            
                       KIMMY
OMG! Do you think that this poor
girl has been in detention and was
never released?
                                                            
                       TAMMY
How could that happen? Let's get
out of here. I'm getting a really
creepy feeling being around all
these books.
                                                            
HALLWAY OUTSIDE LIBRARY: TAMMY KIMMY JIGSAW
                                                            
Tammy and Kimmy enter the hallway and freeze. The squeaky
sound of a tricycle is heard.
                                                            
                       KIMMY
OMG! It's the principal and we
don't have a hall pass.
                                                            
                       TAMMY
Come on let's run.
                                                            

24.

                       KIMMY
      (Pulling Tammy
       into the music
       room doorway)
No hide here.
                                                            
Principal Jigsaw is seen coming down the hall. There cuts to
his approach and then to the girls' frightened faces. They
watch him pass. When he is at the end of the hall and
around the corner, they make a run for it . The camera cuts
to Jigsaw just around the corner. He cocks his head because
he hears a noise and quickly turns around. Kimmy grabs
Tammy and pulls her towards the stairs going to the science
section. The camera cuts back to Jigsaw quickly pedaling
down the hall. The camera cuts to Tammy and Kimmy
scrambling up the stairs. The camera cuts to Jigsaw coming
around the corner to the stairs. As he is turning he loses
the handle to his tricycle. The girls stop at the top of
the stairs to listen. The camera cuts to jigsaw putting his
handlebar back on and turning around to the elevator. Cut
to Tammy and Kimmy still listening at the top of the stairs.
They hear the squeaking tricycle and run through the doors
to the science hallway. The camera cuts to Jigsaw in the
elevator. The camera cuts to the girls in front of the
elevator entrance. The camera cuts to the lights above the
elevator door. The camera cuts to Tammy pointing at the
door. Kimmy grabs her and they run down the hall and hide
in the entry way to the science room. The camera cuts to
the elevator doors opening and Jigsaw exits. The camera
cuts to Tammy and Kimmy hiding in the science room entry
way. The camera cuts to Jigsaw approaching down the hall.
The girls watch him pass by. They peek around the corner
and see him go through the doors. They leave the doorway
and head the other way to the doors on that end. The camera
is in front of them as the walk down the hall following
their conversation.
                                                            
                       KIMMY
Whew! That was close.
                                                            
                       TAMMY
I thought we were going to get
detention for sure. And then that
video curse would be real.
                                                            

25.

                       KIMMY
      (as she opens the
       door)
That's just some kind of urban
myth.
                                                            
When Kimmy opens the door Principal Jigsaw is on the other
side. The girls freeze.
                                                            
 
INT. 40DETENTION ROOM: TAMMY, KIMMY, AMBER, TABITHA - DAY
                                                            
All three girls are standing in the middle of the room
clutching at each other and crying.
                                                            
                       TAMMY
Oh Beth, how could you stand this
place? The smell is horrible!
                                                            
                       KIMMY
I don't think I can take seven
days of this cesspool.
                                                            
                       AMBER
Girls, that's not all. It gets
worse.
                                                            
                       KIMMY
Umm what are talking about?
                                                            
Just as Kimmy finishes her question Tabitha appears in the
window. Only she can see her because the other two girls'
back are to the window. Kimmy screams.
                                                            
                       KIMMY
OMG! Who is she?
                                                            
                       AMBER
You saw her? Did she have my pom
poms?
                                                            
                       TAMMY
What are you talking about? Or do
I want to know.
                                                            

26.

                       AMBER
It's some girl. I think she is
some kind of ghost or spirit
haunting the detention room.
                                                            
                       KIMMY
Hey wait...I just thought of
something.
                                                            
                       TAMMY
Are you thinking what I'm
thinking?
                                                            
                       KIMMY
Amber take a look at this.
                                                            
Kimmy pulls the tardy slip they found out of the waistband
of her skirt and hands it to Amber.
                                                            
                       AMBER
      (looking at tardy
       slip)
Hey I bet the scary girl is this
Tabitha.
                                                            
                       KIMMY
What makes you think that?
                                                            
                       AMBER
Look how we're locked in here.
(she tries the door). I bet she
was locked in here years ago and
forgotten about.
                                                            
There is a flashback to Tabitha sitting in the detention
room. There is a shot of the clock with the hands moving
rapidly. Tabitha fades away.
                                                            
                       TAMMY
Okay, but how did she get
detention and why does she want to
be a cheerleader? Especially
someone like her?
                                                            

27.

                       KIMMY
Remember, Tammy, we found this
note in the library. I bet she
went beyond the symbols and ended
up with a tardy.
                                                            
A flashback to Tabitha in the library wandering the aisles.
                                                            
                       TAMMY
Hey, I just had an idea. Look at
the date on the detention slip.
That's when we have cheerleading
tryouts. I bet Tabitha wanted to
go out but got detention instead.
                                                            
Tabitha appears behind Tammy shaking the pom poms.
                                                            
                       AMBER
Oh, I wish she'd quit doing that.
                                                            
Tabitha keeps appearing behind the girls rapidly. Suddenly
the lights flicker and the door opens by itself. Amber
points. The creep out into the hall. Tabitha appears in
front of the computer in front of the main desk.
                                                            
                       AMBER
Hey let's see what she is trying
to show us.
                                                            
                       TAMMY
I say let's get out of here.
                                                            
                       TAMMY
Wait a minute. Who know what is
down there. You go ahead and I'll
wait here.
                                                            
                       KIMMY
Oh come on Kimmy don't be such a
chicken.
                                                            
The girls walk slowly to the computer and look at the
screen.
                                                            
                       AMBER
OMG! It's opened to Powerschool.
                                                            

28.

                       TAMMY
Now we're really going to get in
trouble.
                                                            
                       AMBER
Hey it's opened to Tabitha's
attendance record. I'll just take
care of that tardy right now. Then
she'll have perfect attendance.
                                                            
Tabitha appears at the end of the room and slowly walks
towards them shaking the pom poms. The girls scream.
                                                            
A shot of Coach Norris in the hall. He hears the screams.
He tries to open the door to the hall. It's locked. He
whips out his keys. The won't work. He roundhouse kicks
the door. He marches down the hall and enters the office.
                                                            
                       ALL THREE GIRLS
Coach Norris!
                                                            
He roundhouse kicks Tabitha. She fights back for awhile but
finally goes to the corner and sobs.
                                                            
                       AMBER
      (running to
       Tabitha)
Oh you poor thing. I know what you
want. Come on. (she helps her
up) You can be a cheerleader with
us. (she brings Tabitah over by
the hand and grabs the other two
girls).
                                                            
                       ALL THREE GIRLS
Now we're all besties!
                                                            
 
INT. 41 BASEMENT: 3 GIRLS, TABITHA, COACH NORRIS - DAY
                                                            
The scene begins with a shot of the girls coming down a
ladder to the basement. The basement is dark and foggy.
                                                            

29.

                       TAMMY
      (Looking around)
Uh, Amber, I don't know if this
was such a good idea.
                                                            
                       AMBER
Listen, Tammy, I think Tabitha is
leading us here.
                                                            
                       KIMMY
Uh, dur, Amber, do you think maybe
we're just falling into a trap?
                                                            
                       KIMMY
Look at that.
                                                            
The girls see a glow from the corner.
                                                            
                       AMBER
Okay, let's check it out.
                                                            
As the girls draw nearer to the glow, the see that it is a
computer monitor.
                                                            
                       TAMMY
Oh cool, I need to check my
hotmail.
                                                            
                       AMBER
      (stopping Tammy)
Hold on. I think this is here for
reason. Look at what the screen
says.
                                                            
The camera cuts to the computer screen. It says "Press
Space Bar"
                                                            
Amber moves towards the computer and taps. The camera again
zoom in on the screen and shows PowerSchool Attendance
Records.
                                                            
                       AMBER
I can't believe this. Only the
empress of PowerSchool Mrs. Kine
Harper can see this.
                                                            

30.

                       TAMMY
Well, what are we supposed to do?
                                                            
                       KIMMY
Ummm... dur...don't you think it
may have something to do with that
tardy slip we found.
                                                            
                       AMBER
I bet we need to change the
records so she can be released.
                                                            
Amber bangs away on the keyboard.
                                                            
                       AMBER
Oh phooey! I have to restart.
These darn Windows computers.
                                                            
                       KIMMY
I bet this would work better on a
Mac.
                                                            
Amber continues banging on the computer. The camera
switches to the perspective of someone approaching. Ominous
sounds and music are heard.
                                                            
                       AMBER
There! Tabitha no longer has
tardy.
                                                            
The girls turn around and run into Tabitha. She shakes the
pom poms at them. The girls scream and back up against the
wall. Suddenly a figure jumps in from the fog. It's Coach
Norris. He does some fancy karate moves.
                                                            
                       COACH NORRIS
I thought I heard something down
here. Looks like someone needs a
roundhouse kick.
                                                            
Tabitha goes towards him. He holds her back by placing his
hand on her head and she swings her arms awkwardly at him.
He then spins around and gives her a roundhouse kick.
Tabitha ends up cowering in the corner with the pom poms.
Coach Norris approaches again. Amber stands in front of
him.

                       AMBER
Hey stop! I think I know what she
wants. She doesn't want to hurt
us. (looking at Tabitha) Right
Tabitha?
                                                            
Tabitha nods her head from the corner.
                                                            
                       AMBER
Watch.
                                                            
Amber does a cheerleading move and Tabitha mimics her.
                                                            
                       AMBER
      (motioning to
       Kimmy and Tammy)
Come on girls
                                                            
The other girls join in. First they do a move and then
Tabitha mimics. The scene fades out.
                                                            
 
INT. 42 GYM - DAY
                                                            
MS of Tabitha standing with the poms poms by her side and
her head down. She tne begins moving her arms in the YMCA
motions. The camera pans back and Amber, Tammy, and Kimmy
join in. Then the music of the Village People's YMCA is
heard. The camera pulls back more and other cheereleaders
are behind the girls and also join in. The camera cuts to a
crowd in the bleachers joining in. Then the camera cuts to
Coach Norris doing the YMCA and pans back showing his
football team behind him. There is a cut to Mrs. Far..then
the strange librarian and the hooded figures...and last Mr.
Jigsaw. There is WS of the all the characters along with
the crowd doing the YMCA. Mr. Jigsaw then runs along the
crowd and gets them to do the wave. The YMCA continues.

BATHROOM
                                                            
(YMCA heard in the distance)The camera cuts to a bathroom
stall and then zooms in on the toilet. The water is
gurgling. Then the camera cuts to the door swinging open.
The camera cuts to wet tracks on the floor. The camera
changes to the perspective of the grudge kid approaching the
gym from the restroom. The music gets louder. The camera
cuts to a white scary hand on the light switch. The hand
flicks the switch and the scene goes to black and the music
stops abruptly.
Closing credits follow.
                                                            


FADE OUT.

I like the idea. But it was poorly written.
