sound that startles them.
                                                            
A BEAT
                                                            
Freddy Kreuger comes running out of the garage into the

                       FREDDY

Justin is way ahead. Freddy sold one of his gloves to stay
in the game.
                                                            
                       FREDDY
You got anything to eat in this
dump?
                                                            
                       JUSTIN
Well we already ate but I think I
have some apple chips.
                                                            
                       FREDDY
Who the fuck eats apple chips,
seriously. I want something that
tastes good. Do you have any pork
rinds. I love pork rinds..
Chicharones.
                                                            
                       JUSTIN
No I don't have pork rinds. I have
apple chips, that's it.

                       ALEX
You don't have anymore of those
microwavable pork rinds. Remember
I got them for you for Christmas.
                                                            
                       JUSTIN
Oh yeah, I got some left. They
tasted like fire so I never ate
them.
                                                            
                       FREDDY
I'll try em'.
                                                            
Justin is at the microwave waiting for the pork rinds to
finish and the phone rings. Justin answers the phone as he
is getting the pork rinds out of the microwave.
                                                            
                       JUSTIN
Hello.
                                                            
                       VOICE
What's that noise?
                                                            
                       JUSTIN
Who is this, I think you have the
wrong number.
                                                            
                       VOICE
That sounds like microwavable pork
rinds.
                                                            
                       JUSTIN
It is.
                                                            
                       VOICE
I only eat microwavable pork rinds
when I play poker.
                                                            
                       JUSTIN
Who is this?
                                                            
                       VOICE
Who are you playing poker with?
                                                            
                       JUSTIN
Why do you want to know?
                                                            
                       VOICE
Cause I want to know who I'm
looking at.

Justin Looks into the backyard and sees the Ghost Face
looking into the house from the sliding glass door. He lets
him in.
                                                            
                       JUSTIN
Ghost Face, what are you doing
here?
                                                            
                       FREDDY
I called him.
                                                            
                       ALEX
I fucking hate Ghost Face.
                                                            
                       GHOST FACE
I hate you too. Just deal me in.
                                                            
                       JUSTIN
Did you bring money this time?
                                                            
                       GHOST FACE
Don't worry about it.
                                                            
                       ALEX
I'm fucking worried about it, last
time you got all drunk and screwed
me out of 200 dollars. Then you
asked to crash at my place.
                                                            
                       GHOST FACE
Stop being a bitch. Geeze, you can
really bring a guy down.
                                                            
                       ALEX
You wouldn't fucking leave. My
girlfriend broke up with me cause
you kept spying on us at night.
                                                            
                       GHOST FACE
No one can see me when I'm in this
outfit.
                                                            
                       JUSTIN
You think that's an invisible
suit. Everyone can see you.
                                                            
                       ALEX
Fucking idiot.
                                                            
                       GHOST FACE
Lets just play huh.

Everyone's playing poker, Freddy notices a device under
Ghost Faces arm.
                                                            
                       FREDDY
Hey, is that your voice changer?
Let me see.
                                                            
                       GHOST FACE
I don't use a voice changer, it's
all natural. I don't know what
that is.
                                                            
                       JUSTIN
Let me see.
                                                            
Justin grabs the device, it is a tape recorder.
                                                            
                       ALEX
Are you recording our
conversation?
                                                            
                       GHOST FACE
No! I swear.
                                                            
                       ALEX
Fuckin' freak. Push play man.
                                                            
Justin pushes play.
                                                            
                       VOICE
Hello guys. I want to play a game.
Its called no limit Texas hold

not invited to this event. But I
showed up anyway.
                                                            
A hand is placed on Justin's shoulder, he jumps. Behind him
is Jigsaw.
                                                            
                       JUSTIN
Oh shit.
                                                            
                       JIGSAW

                       FREDDY
Hey, Jiggy, you still killing
folks in ironic ways?
                                                            
                       JIGSAW
You know it Freddy. Hey Ghost

                       GHOST FACE
It's a bitch.
                                                            
                       ALEX
Okay, who called this clown?
                                                            
                       GHOST FACE

Jigsaw grabs the cards.
                                                            
                       JIGSAW
Shuffle up and deal!
                                                            
                       ALEX

TIME CUT--
                                                            
Jigsaw is out of money
                                                            
                       JIGSAW
Alright, I'm out of here.
                                                            
                       GHOST FACE
Hold on, not yet, I'll spot you
some change.
                                                            
                       FREDDY
You cant afford that Ghosty.
                                                            
                       JUSTIN
He's right.
                                                            
                       ALEX
Broke as a joke.
                                                            
                       GHOST FACE
Fuck you guys. Jigsaw, stay for a

                       JIGSAW
What do you mean?

Ghost Face pulls out a cell phone and dials a number. He
puts it on speaker. A women answers.
                                                            
                       GIRL (V.O.)

                       GHOST FACE

Jigsaw is holding his belly laughing.
                                                            
                       GIRL (V.O.)
Who is this? Is this Ghost Face?
                                                            
                       JIGSAW

                       GHOST FACE
No, its somebody very scary.
                                                            
                       GIRL (V.O.)

                       GHOST FACE

                       JIGSAW
Plot thickens. Ask her if she
would like to play a game?
                                                            
Ghost Face hangs up.
                                                            
                       GHOST FACE
Bad connection.
                                                            
                       JIGSAW
Well, I'm out. Thank you for a
night of laughs, but really,
there's a guy trapped some where
in an undisclosed location and I
need to see to it he doesn't pass
any tests. You know, make sure he
dies.
                                                            
                       FREDDY
I get it.
                                                            
                       JUSTIN
Goes without saying.
                                                            
                       GHOST FACE
Call me sometime, we'll hang.
                                                            
                       JIGSAW
Right. Take care.
                                                            
Jigsaw leaves and the guys continue playing. Justin begins
to shuffle the cards and deal a new hand. The final hand is
a showdown between Freddy and Alex. Freddy has two pairs.
Alex has three 6's for the win.
                                                            
                       ALEX
Give me the Money, No one beats
the apocalypse.
                                                            
The devil comes in the front door, with a six pack of beer.
                                                            
                       DEVIL
Did someone summon the devil?
                                                            
                       JUSTIN
Sorry dude, you can't play!
                                                            
                       DEVIL
Why?
                                                            
                       ALEX
Cause you're the devil, fuck, your
evil, you always cheat.

                       FREDDY
True.
                                                            
                       FREDDY
Satan lies.
                                                            
                       DEVIL
Not this time. I promise, just let
me play. You let Jigsaw play, and
he's a master of games.
                                                            
                       ALEX
Alright, seriously no cheating
though.
                                                            
                       DEVIL
Alright, Alright. I promise.
                                                            
A new hand is dealt.
Everyone is in the hand and all in by the river

Alex has As, Ad,
Justin has Js, Jd
Ghost Face 2h, 8s

Devil has Qh, Kh
                                                            
Devil wins with a royal flush and takes everyone's money,
Everyone is pissed.
                                                            
                       DEVIL
Wow, I won first hand out.
Amazing, I guess its just my lucky
day.
                                                            
                       ALEX
Fuck you, That's why we never want
to play with you you're a cheater.
A fucking cheater.
                                                            
                       JUSTIN
Get out of my house!
                                                            
                       FREDDY
Your ridiculous, that's why you
don't have any friends, no one can
trust you.
                                                            
                       DEVIL
Whatever, this party's lame
anyways. I have lots of friends by
the way.

                       GHOST FACE
Really? Like who?
                                                            
                       DEVIL
Faust.
                                                            
As the devil is leaving he flips everyone off.
                                                            
                       DEVIL
