Several Cars pull into a large car park of a huge
multinational company called MICRO ELITE on the outskirts of
a large industrial estate.

The estate is surrounded by fields on one side and a small
woodland on the other.

The car park is well lit however only the 3rd floor and the
ground floor of the factory are lit up.

The 2nd floor is completely empty and all the lights are
switched off giving the factory a vacant look.

encounter.

him slightly annoyed.
                                                            
                       MICHAEL
Fuck! Did I need that.

jocks I was that gaggin' for it!
                                                            
                       CHRISTINE
      (Buttoning up her
       blouse.)

feel special!
Thanks for ringing your wife
halfway through by the way!
                                                            
                       MICHAEL

worry the poor girl.
It's no life for her being stuck
there home alone.

                       CHRISTINE
God forbid she gets lonely while
her husbands getting his cock
sucked by a co-worker.
You're a true romantic Michael!
By the way you never once
mentioned the new shoes I bought.
                                                            
Christine moves her foot around. Michael gazes at her and
smirks.
                                                            
                       MICHAEL
      (Standing up from
       his desk.)
They're wonderful.
Run along now dear back to work.

                       CHRISTINE
      (Extending two
       fingers.)
Go Fuck yourself!
Just remember who's father pays
your salary.
                                                            
                       MICHAEL
I'm sure he'd be over the moon to
find out how his daughter spends
her time.
(makes obscene gesture)
Now I hate to sound like an
arsehole but be a doll and type up
the rest of those reports for
Monday morning would you?
Cheers babe.
                                                            
                       CHRISTINE
      (Slightly annoyed.)
Anything else your fucking
majesty!
                                                            
                       MICHAEL
      (Grinning.)
Cup of coffee would be nice.
                                                            
Christine opens the door and prepares to exit.
Before she does Michael SLAPS her on the backside hard.
She turns and looks back at him with pure hate.
                                                            
                       CHRISTINE
By the way Michael your hung like
a fucking elf!

       crumbs.)

but there was no one there when I
went to answer it.

That's weird,maybe it was the
Security guard doing his rounds.
                                                            
                       MICHAEL
      (Sarcastically)
Maybe,I don't see why he wouldn't
hang around he's a bit old for
hide and seek.Then again maybe it
was my imagination or maybe it was
just a ghost.
                                                            
                       CHRISTINE
      (Still typing and
       looking at the
       P.C screen.)

and starts struggling wildly however she is no match for his

strength and he pins her to the ground using his knees to
hold her arms.

one fishermen use and brings the blade down hard plunging it
deep into her chest she gasps for breath until her eyes
widen and finally the life drains out of her.

that vulgar display Sinead. I
would not usually use such a crude
display in front of refined lady
such as yourself. I'd usually just
wait until your back was turned.
                                                            
                       SINEAD
      (Laughing)
Good thing I'm used to you then

He had bushy red hair, a stripy
yellow jumper and was making his
getaway on a Pogo stick...
                                                            
The others at the table can longer hold in their laughter
and start laughing wildly.
                                                            
                       GARDA O' HANLON. (V.O.)

                       PAUL
      (To Johno)

good while.
                                                            
                       PAUL
Anybody got any plans for their
share?
                                                            

15.

                       DAVE
      (Sarcastically.)
I was thinking of investing mine
in a major cocaine transaction.
Always wanted a career change.
                                                            
Dave's joke seems to fall on deaf ears as the others around
him sit at the table yawning and scratching their heads.
                                                            
                       DAVE
Whats the fucks the craic with yis
all?
Your acting like you just got out
of bed an hour ago.
                                                            
                       ROB
We did get out of bed an hour ago
you fucking clown!
                                                            
                       DAVE
All of you?
Who was the giver and who was the
receiver or did you all take
turns?
                                                            
Everybody raises a slight grin at Dave's homophobic comment
except Rob who looks like he has taken it to heart.
                                                            
                       ROB
      (Extending his
       middle finger)
I wish you'd all keep your
homo-erotic fantasies to
yourselves and fucking leave me
out of them.
                                                            
                       DAVE
      (To Rob)
We wouldn't want to make you
jealous. You got those golf clubs
I asked for?
                                                            
                       ROB
Yeah, there in the boot of the
car.
                                                            
                       DAVE
      (To Rob)
How much do you want for them?
                                                            
Sinead joins them at the table with a mug of coffee.
                                                            

16.

                       SINEAD
      (To everyone)
Hello.
                                                            
They all smile and continue the conversation.
                                                            
                       ROB
      (To Dave)
Two-eighty the full set non
negotiable.
Not a bad deal considering.....
                                                            
                       DAVE
      (Teasing)
Considering your commission?
Nah only joking I've the money in
my locker.
I'll give it to you when I leave.
                                                            
                       PAUL
      (To Dave laughing)
I'll say you'll give it to him all
right.
                                                            
                       DAVE
      (Pretending to be
       annoyed but
       smiling slightly)
For fucks sake! You really can't
say anything here, without
reducing it to a childish level.
Quite frankly sir I'm both shocked
and appalled.
                                                            
Dave pretends to get up to walk out in disgust before
sitting back down again laughing it's obvious they are all
good friends used to each others banter.
                                                            
                       SINEAD
      (Smiling)
So is that your plan for the night
lads?
Sell each other crap you don't
want and slag each other
mercilessly?
                                                            
                       ROB
Why break the habit of a lifetime.
I suppose we'll have to fit some
work in while we're at it.
Wouldn't do to get the boot a few
weeks before your redundancy.
                                                            

17.

                       DAVE
No, God forbid all those hours
spent calling in sick and trying
to think up new excuses every time
was all for nothing.
What time is it by the way?
                                                            
                       SINEAD
      (Looking at her
       watch)
Time to get a move on.
                                                            
                       DAVE
Lets see what the night has in
store.
                                                            
They all get up from the table and leave the canteen.
                                                            
SCENE 14.
                                                            
 
INT. GROUND FLOOR MICROELECTRONICS DIVISION. - NIGHT
                                                            
WILLY DOBBS,ADE AKINOULE,BRENDAN O'REILLY,LUKE TIERNEY and
GEORGINA DALY line up against the wall.

They are soon joined by Dave,Rob,Paul,Johno and Sinead.
Facing the workers are TERRY WHELAN the shift manager of A
team and DEBBIE MURPHY the team leader and IAN MCSORLEY
manager of the B team.

All the workers including management and team leaders are
wearing White overalls,BLACK WORK BOOTS and their ID tags
around their necks which are used to gain access to
different parts of the facility.

The floor itself is huge and vast due to the imminent
closure of the factory there are only a half dozen large
machines left and the same amount of smaller machines the
rest having been relocated.
                                                            
                       TERRY
      (Speaking to
       everyone)
Hi lads.
Thanks for coming in.
Shouldn't be too busy tonight.
We've a few things we have to get
done which should take about four
hours. Whoever is finished first
will get a chance to leave early
as long as you swipe out after
one. Otherwise you'll only get
            (MORE)

18.

                       TERRY (cont'd)
normal time instead of double.
                                                            
                       PAUL
      (To Terry)
We're all getting double for this
though aren't we?
                                                            
                       WILLY
I should hope so.
                                                            
                       TERRY
      (Addressing
       everyone)
Yes there's no problem there. I've
been assured by Michael Kelly that
we're all on double time tonight.
If not I'll be the first one to
take it up with him. Just remember
folks if your leaving early don't
forget to make sure either myself
or Ian sign your overtime sheets
or else tonight will be a waste of
time and you won't get paid.
                                                            
                       ROB
      (Interrupting)
We do they care anyway the place
is closing down in a few weeks,
they're lucky we haven't called a
strike.
                                                            
                       TERRY
Your guess is as good as mine.
But while we're here we may as
well do a good job.
Before I forget if anyone has a
phone would you please leave it in
your locker as we've had a few
incidents of phone signals
interfering with the machines.
Basically lads we need everything
ready to ship by Monday so we just
need all the equipment boxed up
and ready for the removal men.
Nothing more exciting than that I
am afraid.
Right Debbie will be here as well
as Ian to lend a hand.
Any problems I will be at my desk.
Have a good night lads.
                                                            
Terry walks back across the room to his desk.
                                                            

19.

                       DEBBIE
O.K. here's the shift for
tonight......
                                                            
SCENE 15.
                                                            
 
EXT. FACTORY - NIGHT
                                                            
The lights on the 3rd floor are switched off and only the
light in the front entrance reception area is still
visible.
                                                            
 
INT. GROUND FLOOR MICROELECTRONICS DIVISION. - NIGHT
                                                            
The main floor is quiet save for the sounds of some machines
and some laughter from Rob and Paul who are standing beside
one of the machines talking to Luke and Georgina.

Johno is on the opposite side of the room filling in
paperwork.Ian is nearby checking e-mails at Terry's
desk.Sinead is wearing a clean-room suit and is gathering
some things off the shelves at the top of the room.
                                                            
                       GEORGINA.
What're yis gonna do when this
place shuts down any work lined
up?
                                                            
                       LUKE
I might have a place over at
Citywest I've thrown in a C.V and
they seem interested it's only
cause of that cert I got here that
I'm getting a look in there really
is fuck all going at the minute,
especially for this sort of work.
                                                            
                       ROB
Manufacturing been dead in this
country for years the big
companies started laying off their
employees in 2005.
                                                            
                       PAUL
Ah it's a fucking disgrace if
something like that happened in
France every man woman and child
would be out blocking the ports
and stopping the trucks rolling
off the boats.We just sit back and
let people fuck us over, Fighting
Irish me arse! That's a fucking
            (MORE)

20.

                       PAUL (cont'd)
myth for a start.
                                                            
                       LUKE
The myth seem to become a reality
every weekend when all the
piss-heads start knocking lumps
out of each other after having one
too many.
                                                            
                       ROB
I just can't believe management
expect us to give a flying fuck
when they just shipped our fucking
jobs off to Asia.
I tell youse I hope some fucking
slope is catching hell over there
and all.
                                                            
                       PAUL
If we had a union here they
wouldn't get away with fucking us
around like this.
I'm surprised workers aren't
freaking out the length and breath
of the country and turning on
their employers.
                                                            
                       GEORGINA.
I can just imagine that some
fruitcake getting laid off and
coming back and killing one of his
bosses like they do in the states.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Been plenty of fruitcakes working
in this place over the years.
                                                            
                       GEORGINA.
Fucking right.
                                                            
                       ROB
Sure remember that polish guy went
crazy. Went up to Debbie and told
her that he could hear a bomb
ticking in one of the machine's.
Then he belted one of the security
guards and they had to get the old
bill to bring him in.
                                                            
                       GEORGINA.
Jaysus yeah!
I remember him now all right...
                                                            

21.

                       ROB
It gets better. Do yis remember
Damo the other Polish guy whio
used to work in the Warehouse with
Ade and Willy?( The Others nod.)
Well he told me your ,man rang him
from the looper hospital.
The poor bastard tried to escape
from the fucking laughing academy
by jumping out the window and
ended up breaking both his legs.
They had to have a whip round to
pay for his aul one to come over
and collect him.
                                                            
                       PAUL
Poor fuck!
                                                            
The others nod their head in unison.
                                                            
                       GEORGINA.
You don't think some nutter would
try that over here though do you?
                                                            
                       ROB
Surprised it hasn't happened the
amount of places shuttin' down.
Well then again you can't just
stroll into a supermarket and buy
a rifle like you can over there!
                                                            
                       PAUL
Thank fuck for small miracles.
I'm fucking telling yis.
It's all further evidence of the
ongoing disintegration of western
society brough about by the a
greedy elite and their corrupt
cronies in the corporate sector.
If it keeps up this country will
sink down the plughole and it'll
be like something out a 3rd world
dictatorship.
Society will crumble and we will
be reduced to our most base
primitive states.
                                                            
The others look at each other with faces of amusement but
are content to let Paul ramble on.
                                                            
                       GEORGINA.
Sounds like something out of Mad
Max.
                                                            

22.

                       PAUL
Wait and see if it doesn't happen.
It'll be everyman for himself.
Crime,starvation,disease,murder
will be rampant.
The only Law will be the law of
the wild.
                                                            
                       ROB
I can just picture it now.
Blokes driving around in jeeps
with human heads dangling from
them and a necklace full of
fingers around their necks.
                                                            
                       GEORGINA.
At least it's not a necklace full
of dicks.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Trust you to think of that you
filthy bitch!
                                                            
The three workers all laugh hysterically while Paul sits
silent with a serious look on his face.
                                                            
                       PAUL
Laugh while yis can.
Just don't go crying to me when it
all goes Pete Tong.
                                                            
As everyone talking Debbie approaches the group.
                                                            
                       DEBBIE
      (In a Sarcastic
       tone.)
Am I interrupting something lads
or would you like to get some work
done for a change instead of
standing around talking all night.
                                                            
                       PAUL
There's nothing to do! So what's
the problem?
                                                            
                       DEBBIE
If you want I'll find you
something to do, it doesn't look
good you all standing around
yapping like your out in a pub.
So if you're not to busy fingering
each others arsehole's feel free
to get back to work.
Let me know when that crate is

23.

                       DEBBIE (cont'd)
ready to ship Rob.
                                                            
Debbie leaves the group and continues on to another part of
the factory.
                                                            
                       PAUL
What the fuck is up with her
tonight?
Did the batteries run out of her
fucking dildo or something?
                                                            
                       GEORGINA.
Well you won't have to put up with
her for much longer. I'll talk to
yis later I'm going out for a cup
of tea.
                                                            
Luke and Georgina exit the factory floor. Paul and Rob get
back to work.
                                                            
                       ROB
Turn up the radio would yeh?
                                                            
                       PAUL
      (Still looking
       over at Debbie)
My Pleasure.
                                                            
Paul's eyes follow Debbie across the room a look of pure
anger on his face.
                                                            
SCENE 16.
                                                            
 
INT. SUB-STOCK ROOM - NIGHT
                                                            
Dave and Brendan are sitting at a computer talking,the room
is small with various shelves and trolley's full of computer
parts and software.
                                                            
                       DAVE
Did you download any good movies
lately?
                                                            
                       BRENDAN

                       DAVE (cont'd)
I guess I'll have to make do with
that scat video your mother
emailed me.
                                                            
                       BRENDAN
How about you mention my mother
again and I break your jaw.
                                                            
                       DAVE
You couldn't break wind if you
were in the eye of a hurricane.
                                                            
                       BRENDAN
That doesn't even make any sense.
                                                            
There is a moment of awkward silence before both men break
into laughter and Dave continues speaking.
                                                            
                       DAVE
I tell you I need some to get back
on the road pronto!
This public transport Lark is
killing me.
                                                            
                       BRENDAN
I wouldn't like to run into you on
the roads.
Do you need a lift in the morning?
                                                            
                       DAVE
I might do there's no buses.
If you drop me down the village
it'll be grand get a taxi from
there.
Ah why did I bother to come in
tonight. I need to do something
with my life stop this minimum
wage shite once and for all! We
got much to do anyway?
                                                            
                       BRENDAN
      (Looking at his
       notes.)
A little not much, we should be
done in a couple of hours, might
see if I can get out early
tonight.
                                                            
                       DAVE
Good call BREN lets get the

Dozens of boxes are stacked on pallets and there is a

Ian is in a side room adjacent to the main floor.
He is putting some items on a shelf when he is startled by a
strange noise and turns around to see where it is coming
from.
                                                            
                       IAN
Hello?
Who's there?
                                                            
There is no response.
Ian walks towards the entrance and looks out the door there
is nobody to be seen.

He turns around and is startled to see a FIGURE in a White
Clean-room suit.
                                                            
                       IAN
Jesus!
                                                            
Ian steps back clutching his heart while the Figure steps
back and removes the clean room mask revealing Sinead who
looks at Ian with concern.
                                                            
                       SINEAD
Sorry Ian didn't mean to frighten
you.
I just had to leave some stuff on
the shelf!
Are you O.K?
                                                            
Ian regains his composure and smiles softly.
                                                            
                       IAN
You scared the bejesus out of me
Sinead!(There is a slight pause)
Yeah I'm fine now!
Just a bit jumpy for some reason.

                       ROB

while.
                                                            
                       PAUL

                       PAUL
      (To Luke and Paul
       Daly.)
Any sign of Tommy yet?
                                                            
                       GEORGINA.
Not yet, you know what he's like
comes in whenever he feels like it
gets away with it because he's the
managers cousin.
                                                            
                       JOHNO
Fuck knows what he's gonna do when
this place shuts. He'll have a
rude awakening if he gets work
anywhere else.
                                                            

28.

                       LUKE
That's a big if. Who the fuck
would want to hire him? We were
just talking about the match on
Wednesday there's no way there's
going to be a replay.
                                                            
                       PAUL
No way man.I still can't believe
it.That Ref must have been blind.
                                                            
                       SINEAD
Ah lets not get into another
conversation about football.It's
all I've been hearing all week.
You men. I swear to God.
                                                            
                       JOHNO
It makes a nice change from
hearing about X-Factor or
celebrity whatever the fuck.
It's not so bad tonight Hercules
is given me less grief than usual,
I might even ask him if I can get
out early there really isn't much
to do couple more loads to run and
that's it.
                                                            
                       PAUL
Don't get your hopes up yet man.
I'm sure Debbie will find
something for you to do even if
it's just sweeping the floor, the
way she goes on sometimes you'd
swear this place was never going
to close.
                                                            
                       JOHNO
She's just chasing a job across
the road, thinks this will make
her look better.
                                                            
                       SINEAD
I've got to ask why do call IAN
Hercules?
                                                            
                       JOHNO
Because he's just so hunky and
gorgeous.
He looks like he stepped straight
out of Greek mythology.

Sinead lightly punches Johno in the arm.
Luke and Georgina check their pagers.
                                                            
                       SINEAD
      (Laughing)
That's so mean, your terrible.
                                                            
                       PAUL
Ah he's a prick anyway when I
worked for him nothing was ever
good enough always found something
to moan about.
                                                            
                       GEORGINA.
The fucking ears on him.
He looks like the fucking F.A.
cup.
Dickhead.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Your right about that. Ian is a
fucking grade A cunt.
                                                            
                       GEORGINA.
Wanker!
                                                            
                       PAUL
Shitebag!
                                                            
Just as our dashing trio are continuing their colorful
tirade of abuse Ian walks past nonchalantly nodding in their
direction as they do so.
                                                            
                       IAN
Hey guys.
                                                            
                       PAUL
Hey Ian.
Good to see you mate.
                                                            
All three smile at Ian and look embarrassed. Georgina checks
her pager which is beeping away loudly. Sinead looks away
sheepishly though not taking part in the abuse she did not
interject so feels a slight bit guilty thus revealing her
good character and empathy for her fellow man.
                                                            
                       GEORGINA.
Right we better leg it the
scanner's down in there.
                                                            
Luke and Georgina get up and exit the canteen.

                       SINEAD
      (Finishing her
       tea.)
I'm going to head back in, Some of
us still have work to do. Catch
you guys later.
                                                            
All three stand up Sinead leaves in the direction of the
factory floor and Paul and Johno go out to the smoking area.
Debbie is still in the canteen watching T.V.

                       JOHNO
Sleeping hopefully if me neighbor
isn't out in the garden with his
fucking band-saw!
I swear to Christ I'm going to
fucking knock him out one of these
days if he keeps waking me up on
me day off!
                                                            
                       PAUL
I used to live beside a guy like
that.
Used to come home drunk and play
the same fucking song over and
over again.
                                                            
                       JOHNO
Id've fucking strangled him and
left the C.D sticking out of his
arse!
                                                            
                       PAUL
How are those anger management
classes working out for you?
                                                            

31.

                       JOHNO
      (LAUGHING)
Very well actually.
                                                            
They both laugh. Paul finishes his cigarette and stamps it
out on the ground.
                                                            
                       PAUL
Money well spent.
Better get back in.
Yeh right?
                                                            
                       JOHNO

Oh hi.

having someone to talk to about
something other than football or
golf.
Well there's Georgina but she
hangs around with the men so much
I wouldnt be surprised if you
pulled down her skirt and found a
big hairy pair of cock and balls.
Too much fucking testosterone in
the air if you ask me.
                                                            
There is no reply. Debbie continues looking in the mirror
still aware of the presence in the room.
                                                            
                       DEBBIE
Sinead?

seizes her by the throat and drags her into one of the

                       GEORGINA.

My three year old probably has a
bigger Willy than the lot of yis.
                                                            
Paul looks up from his paper to briefly rejoin the
conversation.
                                                            
                       PAUL
Like mother like son then?

                       ROB

                       LUKE
I'm sure she's around somewhere,
she'll probably find something for
you to do just as your off home.
                                                            
                       ROB

or something.
                                                            
                       DAVE
Roll down the window and see if

      (Sighing and
       rolling down the
       window.)
Whatever makes you happy.Now can

They ALL follow Sinead out the door.

INT. BATHROOM NIGHT. - NIGHT
                                                            
Luke, Johno, Georgina and Sinead all stand staring at a
cubicle
door.
Johno slowly pushes the door open, what greets them is a
sight gruesome enough to turn a hardened police detective's
stomach.
                                                            
                       JOHNO
JESUS CHRIST!
                                                            
                       GEORGINA.
What kind of sick fucking animal
could do this!
                                                            
They all stand in shock.

Sinead has her hand over her mouth.
                                                            
                       LUKE
      (Hesitantly)
Look I can explain this it's not
what it looks like.
                                                            
The toilet is covered in a brown substance that is smeared
over the toilet and some of which is dripping down the lower

part of the cubicle to the left of the toilet.
In the bowl is a significant amount of brown goo.
                                                            
                       JOHNO
I think you should go see a doctor
man. If all that came outta yeh .
Yeh can't have much of your
insides left. Your lucky to still
be alive.
                                                            

43.

                       LUKE
That didn't come out of me. I
flushed my curry down the jacks I
think it was gone off or
something. It wouldn't all flush
away and there's nothing to clean
it with so.....
                                                            
                       SINEAD
So you just thought you'd leave it
there for someone else to find?
                                                            
                       LUKE
      (Turning Red.)
Well it wasn't exactly a well
thought out plan. What were you
doing in the men's jacks anyway
SINEAD!
                                                            
                       SINEAD
Well the ladies is shut for
cleaning and I had to go somewhere
it wouldn't be my first choice
believe me.
                                                            
                       JOHNO
That's a bit weird I don't think
there's any cleaners in here
tonight.
                                                            
                       SINEAD
So who put the sign up then?
                                                            
They all look at each other and shrug their shoulders.
                                                            
As everyone exits the Security Guard comes in his boots
covered in Mud and starts washing his hands in the sink.

                       ROB
      (Rubbing his hands
       together.)
Anyone for a pint?

Brendan is taking boxes off trolleys and placing them on a
shelf. The is a sound of the door closing but he pays no
attention. As he lifts another box he hears footsteps
approach him he turns around to see who is there.
                                                            
                       BRENDAN
What's the craic? Just let me put
this on the shelf and I'll be
right with you.
                                                            
Brendan turns and carries the box towards the shelf as he
does so the Figure takes a claw-hammer from his work-belt
and hits Brendan on top of his head with it.The hammer
sticks in Brendan's head who drops the box and falls to his
knees blinking in a mixture of shock and disbelief.The
FIGURE pulls the hammer from Brendan's head and hits him
with it repeatedly.Brendan already stunned from the first
blow can do little to defend himself from his attacker.

Rob and Paul are in a booth at a local bar. Dave is ordering
drinks. The pub is lively with music playing and the
laughter of late night revelers in the background.
                                                            
                       DAVE
      (Handing the
       others their
       drinks.)
There you are lads.
                                                            
                       PAUL

                       ROB

lively, food won't be too much

                       DAVE
Here did you hear the one about
the Lobster walking into a bar?
                                                            
                       PAUL
      (Taking a big gulp
       of his pint.)
No.
                                                            
                       DAVE
Rob?
                                                            
                       ROB
No.
                                                            
                       DAVE
      (Taking a sip from
       his pint glass.)
Right. A lobster walks into a bar.
Barman says I'm not serving you.
                                                            
Rob and Paul start to smile.
                                                            
                       DAVE
The Lobster says why not?
So the barman says 'cause you were
in here last night and you were
givin' it all that!
                                                            
Dave holds up both hands and makes two claws like a
lobsters.
                                                            
                       ROB
Oh for jaysus sake!
                                                            
                       PAUL
Good one man.
                                                            

46.

                       DAVE
      (Finishing his
       drink.)
Do you reckon those pizzas will be
ready now?
                                                            
                       ROB
      (Looking at his
       watch.)
I'd give it another ten
minutes.(Holding up his glass) Do
you want one for the road?
                                                            
Dave notices two attractive girls sitting at the bar
talking.
                                                            
                       DAVE
Holy Fuck!
Will youse check out the bleedin'
gazongas on that thing.
                                                            
Dave motions towards a large breasted women at the bar
talking to her friend.
                                                            
                       DAVE
      (Nodding towards
       the girls.)
What do you think lads.Reckon I

                       ROB
I reckon you've a chance of
getting laughed at!
                                                            
                       DAVE
Fuck it!

                       PAUL

me.
                                                            
                       ROB
Actually just get me a coke or
something the last thing I need is
to get nicked for being over the
limit.
                                                            
Dave gets up from the booth approaches the bar and locks
eyes with the women, He approaches the bar and the main GIRL
at Bar smiles at him and indicates she would like a drink by
aiming her empty glass towards him.

47.

Dave and the Brunnette lock eyes and the two of them share a
moment that could easily be captured in time/
Dave steps forward and utters the immortal line
                                                            
                       DAVE
      (Turning towards
       the girls.)
Fancy a refill sugartits?
                                                            
The girls face drops and she registers a shock of horror and
disbelief at what she has just hear.She slaps Dave twice in
the Face HARD and then throws her friends drink in his face.
                                                            
                       BRUNETTE AT BAR.
Fuck off back to your fucking cave
Tarzan.
                                                            
DAVE sighs pays for his drinks and walks back towards his
booth looking slightly embarrassed. Rob and Paul have
witnessed the entire scene and are giggling to themselves.
The two girl's tut with each other and eye Dave with a look
of pure hate. Dave however is not aware of what he has said
and is confused by the situation.
                                                            
                       ROB
      (Taking his drink.)
No joy then man?
                                                            
                       DAVE
Nah.
Probably lesbians or something.
                                                            
Rob and Paul burst out laughing.
                                                            
                       ROB
Jaysus Christ Dave, I've seen
terminal syphilis sufferers make
better impressions on women.
                                                            
                       DAVE
How would you know what a syphilis
sufferers looks like?
                                                            
                       ROB
Your ma told me!!
                                                            
                       DAVE
My Ma's dead.
                                                            
                       ROB
Jesus mate I'm so fucking sorry.
                                                            

48.

An awkward silence develops as Rob ponders his options and
bows his head in shame. Dave plays along before pointing his
finger and laughing.
                                                            
                       DAVE
Aghhh only buzzin my Mas not dead
she s still alive. So Ha!
                                                            
                       ROB
Fucking Wanker!!
                                                            
Rob jumps out of his chair and swipes at his friend Paul
steps in between them. Rob sits back down looking furious.
                                                            
                       PAUL
Settle down lads for fucks sake
you'll get us barred.
                                                            
The two lads sit still with Rob looking dejected and Dave
looking embarassed. Paul is stuck playing Piggy in the
middle.
                                                            
                       DAVE
Ah win some lose some.
Do you think I'd have a chance
with Sinead?
                                                            
                       PAUL
No chance whatsoever mate.
                                                            
                       DAVE
Yeah that's what I thought let's
just finish these and split.
                                                            
Dave looks down at his pint with a disappointed look on his
face.

                       TERRY
      (Speaking to all

Luke, Gavin and Johno are at the managers desk.They are soon
joined by Sinead. Ian is standing with his arms folded
beside the security guard.
Terry begins to speak.
                                                            
                       TERRY
Right lads I'm afraid I've a bit
of bad news.
Somebody has broken into some of
the lockers in the changing room.
                                                            
                       IAN
I've rang the GARDAI(IRISH POLICE)
and they said they'd send a car
down as soon as they can it could
be awhile though they've been busy
tonight.
                                                            
                       JOHNO
That's fuckin' typical.
                                                            
                       IAN
That's hardly fair JOHN.They'll be
here as soon as soon as they can.
Meanwhile we're going to check the
security tapes to see if we can
see anything on them. Would one of
you mind telling the others what's
happened?
                                                            
                       JOHNO
I'll go down receiving and let
them know.

                       SINEAD
      (Looking around
       the room.)
I don't believe this look at the
state of the place.
                                                            

50.

                       GEORGINA.
It's a bit of a fucking
coincidence that only our lockers
were broken into tonight and not
anyone else's don't youse think?
                                                            
                       JOHNO
More than a coincidence I'd say
whoever did this must still be on
campus, If we find these fuckers I
say we knock the bollock's out of
them fuck waiting for the Guards.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Whoever did this is long
gone.....unless.
                                                            
                       SINEAD
Unless it's someone who works
here.Or someone who has access how
else would they get past the
security door?
                                                            
They all pause and look at each other.IAN enters the locker
room and approaches them.
                                                            
                       IAN
      (Looking around
       the room.)
For Jesus sake! Listen lads TERRY
and the Security guard are
checking the cameras as we speak
so we'll have something to tell
the Gardai to see if we can see
anybody entering or leaving.
There's no cameras in this room
obviously.
                                                            
                       JOHNO
So you can't see who did it.
                                                            
                       IAN
No but the outside cameras will
pick up anybody coming or
going.Does anybody know whats
missing?
                                                            
                       SINEAD
My phones gone.
                                                            
                       GEORGINA.

                       LUKE
Ditto.
                                                            
                       JOHNO
What about you Ian?
Your locker doesn't look like it
was touched.
                                                            
                       IAN
      (Slightly
       agitated.)
I keep my valuables in my car.
John would you mind going down to
the stores and telling the others
what's happened like I asked you
to 10 minutes ago.
                                                            
                       JOHNO
      (Staring at Ian.)
Sure.
                                                            
Johno exits the locker room.
                                                            
                       IAN
If the rest of you want to take a
break or something,feel free.
Until we get this sorted out.

                       PAUL
Do you believe that old
codger?(imitating the old mans
voice)
You're doomed your all doomed!!!
                                                            
                       ROB
I know, I know.
I'd never have the stones to go
around to people like that.
                                                            
                       DAVE
Rob you wouldn't mind if I eat
this in the car do you?
I'm fucking starving!
                                                            
                       ROB
If you want just don't get any on
the seats.
                                                            
                       DAVE
      (Opening the pizza
       box.)
Lovely!
                                                            
The car continues driving through the near deserted West
Dublin Industrial estate suddenly Rob SLAMS on the breaks
causing Dave to move forward dropping his pizza.
A drunk or possibly cyclist crosses the road unaware of the
near fatal accident leaving the trio screaming obscenities.
                                                            

53.

                       DAVE
What the fuck Rob?
                                                            
                       ROB
They've put the chain up to stop
the joyriders from tearin' aroun'
here at night!
We'll have to go the long way.
                                                            
                       DAVE
My pizza's covered in fucking
hairs now.
                                                            
Dave picks the pizza slice up and looks at it with distaste.

INT. RECEIVING - NIGHT
                                                            
Johno walks through the large receiving area.It is vacant
and unusually quiet there is no noise to be heard whatsoever
except for the sound of radio static turned down low.
                                                            
                       JOHNO
      (Loudly.)
Anybody home!
                                                            
There is no reply.
                                                            
                       JOHNO
Willy! ADE! Hello!(Under his
Breath)Where is everyone for fuck
sake!
                                                            
Johno walks outside briefly and looks around.There is
nothing but silence.He steps back in.He walks towards the
entrance to the Sub Stock room and nearly slips on the
floor and notices the area outside the entrance has recently
been mopped. He rings the buzzer.
                                                            
                       JOHNO
      (Banging on the
       door.)
BRENDAN! You in there. Open up!
                                                            
Johno waits for a reply.There is none.
                                                            
                       BRENDAN
      (Still Banging.)
BRENDAN!
                                                            

54.

The lights in the receiving area switch off except for one
on the far side of the room.There is some light but it is
hard to see in it.
                                                            
                       JOHNO
      (Under his breath.)
Just what I need as if the night
wasn't fucked up enough.
                                                            
Some boxes stacked 20ft high in the bottom right corner of
the room topple over.Johno jumps back with fright.
                                                            
                       JOHNO
If this is someones idea of a joke
I suggest you cut it out right now
before I slap the fuckin' head off
yeh!
                                                            
There is a scratching noise coming from the boxes followed
by the sound of something falling over.Johno picks up a
crowbar from one of the wooden crates in the room and walks
towards the noise. He kicks the mop bucket out of his way as
he does so.
                                                            
                       JOHNO
God help yeh if your that prick
that broke into me locker.
                                                            
JOHNO walks into the corner that boxes were stacked in.
A forklift is parked nearby and has recently in use.
As he gets behind the boxes a SHADOW looms over his shoulder
he spins around quickly clutching the crowbar.BRENDAN'S body
falls in front of him the hammer still embedded in his
head.JOHNO is knocked to the ground the weight of BRENDAN'S
dead body pinning him to the floor.
                                                            
                       JOHNO
Aaahh! Fuck!
                                                            
Johno STRUGGLES to get free from under the body. The FIGURE
emerges from the shadows wearing a decontamination suit used
in the clean room and swipes at him with a large knife
narrowly missing him.JOHNO manages to get to his feet and a
vicious struggle ensues.
                                                            
                       JOHNO
      (Struggling
       fiercely.)
I'll fucking kill yeh! Yeh fucking
cunt yeh!
                                                            
JOHNO breaks free from the FIGURE'S grip and recieves a deep
cut to his left arm. He manages to land several shots with

55.

the crowbar knocking the figure back against the wall
stunning him. He moves in for the kill but slips in
BRENDAN'S blood and falls back against the boxes hitting his
head.
                                                            
                       JOHNO
      (Struggling to his
       feet.)
Kill yeh ill fucking.....
                                                            
The FIGURE plunges a knife into JOHNO'S stomach just as he
gets to his feet, JOHNO drops the crowbar. THE FIGURE runs
the knife along JOHNO'S gut and his intestines fall
out.JOHNO locks eyes with the killer through his mask for a
couple of seconds and keels over spitting blood and cursing
to his last breath.

I can't believe this.At least
whoever broke in didn't take my
car keys.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Or our wallets.
                                                            
                       GEORGINA.
Or any money.
                                                            
As they talk among themselves.Paul and Rob walk in with the
pizzas.
                                                            
                       ROB
Alright ladies and Gentlemen your
dinner has arrived.
                                                            
Rob places the Pizzas on the table in front of everybody.
                                                            
Everyone nods in Robs direction obviously something is
wrong.
                                                            
                       ROB
What's wrong? Youse look like
somebody died?
                                                            

56.

                       SINEAD
Our lockers got broken into Ian's
called the GARDAI already.
                                                            
                       GEORGINA.
Yeah whoever did only took our
phones!
                                                            
                       PAUL
You're joking!
                                                            
                       GEORGINA.
It gets better. Only OUR LOCKERS
were broken into so whoever did it
must work here.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Or must've worked here at one
point.
                                                            
                       ROB
Well you need a swipe card to get
into the building so they'll be
able to tell who it was.
                                                            
                       GEORGINA.
If he broke into our lockers he
probably nicked the swipe card as
well. Whenever somebody leaves
that's usually the first thing
they hand in.
                                                            
                       SINEAD
It could be a she.Speaking of
which I haven't seen DEBBIE in
hours.
                                                            
                       PAUL
Yeah she just disappeared earlier
on.
                                                            
                       SINEAD
This is getting weird.
                                                            
Dave enters the canteen and walks towards the group.He is
still carrying a pizza box.
                                                            
                       DAVE
What happened in the locker room
the door on my lockers been forced
open!
                                                            

57.

                       ROB
We've just been talking about
that.Somebody broke into OUR
lockers and stole our phones.
                                                            
                       DAVE
      (Holding up his
       phone like a
       prized trophy.)
It's lucky I brought mine with me.
Has anything else been taken?
                                                            
                       SINEAD
No. just our phones.
                                                            
                       DAVE
The Guards?
                                                            
                       LUKE
Have been notified.
                                                            
                       GEORGINA.
      (Interrupting)
And are on their way apparently.
Taking their sweet fucking time I
may add!
                                                            
                       PAUL
Fuck this I'm going out for a
smoke anyone care to join me?
                                                            
They all stand up and exit towards the smoking area bringing
their pizzas with them.Luke leaves his drink BEHIND.Sinead
and Dave stay sitting in the canteen.
                                                            
                       DAVE
      (Eating his last
       slice of pizza.)
That's just what we need
tonight.Was your phone taken as
well?
                                                            
                       SINEAD
Yeah it was only a heap of crap
anyway but all my numbers are on
it.
                                                            
                       DAVE
You can use mine if you want.I'd
the good sense to bring it with
me.If you need it just ask I'll be
down in sub-stock.
                                                            

58.

                       SINEAD
John's down there as well I think
he went to tell the others.
                                                            
                       DAVE
      (Picking up the
       garlic bread.)
Right well I may as well drop this
bread down to WILLY while I'm at
it.
Mind yourselves.
                                                            
Dave exits while Sinead stares into her drink looking
miserable.

DAVE enters the receiving area.Only one light is switched on

                       DAVE
And the lord said "Let there be
light Dave" and "Dave said how
about you move your fat fucking
arse" and" there was indeed
light".
                                                            
There is A FIGURE at the bottom of the room his back turned
mopping the floor and cleaning up the blood. DAVE approaches
still carrying the garlic bread.
                                                            
                       DAVE
Hey. I heard what happened. You
haven't seen Willy have you?
                                                            
There is no reply to the question only silence.
                                                            
                       DAVE
Factories like a fucking Ghost
town tonight where did everybody
get to......
                                                            

59.

Before the sentence is completed the FIGURE spins around and
cuts DAVE'S head off at the neck.
DAVE'S lifeless body falls to the ground dropping the pizza
box and still clutching the garlic bread.

His head bounces off the floor a couple of times and comes
to a rolling stop.

The FIGURE picks it up and DROPS it in the mop bucket and
continues mopping the floor.

                       ROB
Two-Eighty.
Glad I left them in the car now
with that fuckin' tea leaf running
about and all!
                                                            
                       PAUL
What are you gonna play with in
future then?
                                                            
                       ROB
I won a new set in a competition
so I thought I'd make a few quid
for myself in the meantime.
                                                            
                       GEORGINA.

I'm telling you.
The insurance for our stuff better
be included in our final
settlement.
That phone of mine wasn't cheap.
                                                            
                       ROB
You're just worried that them
pictures of you wanking in the
mirror will end up on the
Internet.
                                                            
                       PAUL
      (Sarcastically.)
Who told you about them?
As long as they pay me for my
likeness I suppose.
                                                            
                       GEORGINA.
The pair of you are gas.
It's a good point though this
place is insured so we should be
entitled to something.
                                                            

61.

                       PAUL
As far as the management are
concerned we're entitled to sweet
fuck all.
Here's one for you lads the way I
hear it Michael Kelly has been
banging his secretary the last few
months.
One of the security guards on
B-shift told me.
Says there's some footage of them
on camera and everything.
                                                            
                       GEORGINA.
      (Laughing)
Your fucking joking!
                                                            
                       PAUL
No. Dead serious. I saw the
footage on his phone too grainy to
make out who it was though.
I reckon that'll be worth
something if they try and stiff us
on our compo.
                                                            
                       GEORGINA.
To each their own I suppose.
Still though isn't he supposed to
be married?
                                                            
                       ROB
Like that's ever stopped anybody.
                                                            
                       GEORGINA.
The thoughts of that slimy creep
putting his hands on yeh would
make your skin crawl.
She must be dedicated to her job
whoever she is.
                                                            
                       PAUL
I did hear the word job mentioned
a few times come to think of it.
One that involves a fair amount of
kneeling.
                                                            
There is a spontaneous burst of laughter from everyone
gathered.
                                                            
                       ROB
      (Still chuckling.)
Well as fun as this has been I
better get back to the floor see
if the fucking Guards have shown

                       PAUL
      (Stamping out his
       cigarette.)
What time did he ring them at?
                                                            
                       GEORGINA.
While you were gone.
I'll follow youse in.
                                                            
Georgina leans against the while blowing smoke into the air
and thinking to herself how her luck can't get worse.

                       ROB
      (Walking past with
       the golf clubs
       over his
       shoulder.)
What's wrong?
                                                            
                       LUKE
Just this drink I think it's gone
off or something.
                                                            
                       ROB
I'm just leaving these out in the
car if you see Dave tell him to
give me a shout before he leaves.

       checking the
       damage.)
For fuck sake!
                                                            
As he runs his fingers along the deep slash marks on his
tire ROB he hears the sound of approaching footsteps and
grabs one of the golf clubs from the bag before raising it
to strike.
The foot steps move closer only to revealed as Paul.

the security guard and killed one
of the office girls.

believable.

Georgina? What's ......

with one hand and helps lift Luke's body down with the
other.

                       GEORGINA.
      (Cradling Luke's
       body.)
Oh Jesus man.

Sinead with tears running down her face places her hand on

her colleagues shoulder.
                                                            
                       SINEAD

Georgina.

An arrow pierces Georgina's neck and she falls down dead.
Sinead touches her face briefly and immediately looks at

The Figure emerging from some bushes clutching a crossbow
still wearing the clean-room suit and walking quickly
towards her.

Sinead picks up the hammer and runs towards the door
where she almost drops her card swiping back into the
building.
She manages to get into the building just as the Figure
makes a swipe at her with his hand.

To their back is the corridor leading to receiving.
And to the right the male and female toilets.

The Figure steps out from the entrance to the canteen

Both Rob and Paul stop and stare at each other in disbelief
before breaking into uncontrollable laughter.

If your lookin' for E.T mate I
think he flew past on a silver
BMX.
                                                            
The Figure stands still watching the two and pointing the
crossbow.
                                                            
Silence echoes down the dimly lit corridor broken only by
the laughter of the two men.
                                                            
The Figure fires the crossbow narrowly missing Paul's head
It sticks into a noticeboard with the names of the workers
on the nights shift.

The two men stare back wild eyed in shock.
Until Rob breaks the silence.
                                                            
                       ROB
Leg it for fuck's sake!!!!
                                                            
The two men run in opposite directions Rob towards the
ladies
bathroom and Paul uses his swipe-card and struggles briefly
with the door before entering the main factory floor.

The Figure reloads and starts moving straight ahead in the
direction of Sinead who has just reached the far end of the
corridor.

      (In utter
       frustration.)
Aghh Fuckin jaysus.
                                                            
Rob attempt to get up but slips again and lands face first
his hand breaking his fall,

He looks at his hands in horror as they are along with part
of his jeans and jacket covered in someone else's blood.

He quickly rises to his feet and walks towards the cubicle
door where the blood is coming from.

He pushes the door open and Debbie's lifeless body falls
out.
He lets out a scream and runs out of the room.

INT. GROUND FLOOR CORRIDOR - NIGHT
                                                            
Sinead is sprinting down the dimly corridor pursued by
The Figure who is now running also.
                                                            
Sinead turns back and sees the figure run around the corner
towards her until he is nearly within touching distance.

She grabs the cart used to collect the work coats and
pushes it towards him.Sinead screams and turns around.

The cart topples over and Dave's headless body tumbles out
crashing to the floor in front of The Figure blood
splashing on his clean-room suit.
                                                            
                       SINEAD
You evil bastard!
                                                            
The Figure stops and looks down at the body before looking
back at Sinead and shrugs his shoulders.
                                                            
Sinead through her hammer at him missing him by inches
before she continues running towards the receiving area

INT. RECEIVING - NIGHT
                                                            
Sinead enters the receiving area and Slams the door shut
behind her.
The ware house itself is dimly lit.
A mop and bucket leans against some boxes beside a forklift
truck.

The floor is covered in splashes of blood where it has been
mopped up in a hurry.
On the right hand side of the room are some stairs leading
to some storage rooms.
Sinead walks towards the two computers and gasps in horror.

Johno's body is hanging from some chains near the entrance
to the loading dock which is closed most of the way down.
Brendan's body is sitting at the computer desk the hammer
still embedded in his head.
                                                            
                       SINEAD
      (In shock.)
Oh Jesus Christ!
                                                            
Sinead hears some noise behind some boxes stacked beside the
receiving hatch leading to the main floor and looks over in
dread.She sees a shadow looming over and hears what sound
like a body falling to the ground.
She looks at Brendan's dead body a look of disgust on her
face and pulls the Hammer loose using her foot for leverage
against the table.The hammer comes loose and some blood and
brain matter splash onto her shoe.
                                                            
                       SINEAD
      (Gagging.)
Uggh.
                                                            
Sinead takes a deep breath and begins to to creep towards
the service hatch towards where the noise is coming from.
She holds the hammer still dripping with blood out in front
of her.
Suddenly a hand grips her shoulder she spins around and
screams.
                                                            
                       SINEAD
Aggghhh!!!!
                                                            

72.

She drops the hammer which lands on Paul's foot.
He is wearing runners and falls to the ground gripping his
foot.
                                                            
                       PAUL
Aghhh, For fuck sake Sinead!
What did you do that for?
                                                            
                       SINEAD
I'm sorry Paul!
What the hell where you doing
sneaking around the fucking place
with everything that's been going
on?
                                                            
                       PAUL
I didn't want that fucking
nut-ball to hear me, that's why.
Help me up at least.
                                                            
Sinead helps Paul to his feet with one hand and picks up the
hammer with the other.
                                                            
                       PAUL
Where did you get that?
                                                            
Sinead looks over towards where Brendan is slumped in the
chair blood running down his face.
Paul looks over and then notices Johno's body hanging from
the chains overhead his intestines hanging down over his
face.
                                                            
                       PAUL
Oh Jesus fucking Christ Johno!
No man....We have to take him
down.
                                                            
                       SINEAD
Lets just get out of here.
There's nothing we can do for him.
                                                            
Paul nods reluctantly and the two walk towards the side
entrance door and exit the factory.
                                                            
SCENE 61.
                                                            
 
EXT. BACK ENTRANCE NIGHT. - NIGHT
                                                            
It is still dark but the shift itself is nearly over.
Paul and Sinead walk cautiously towards the pathway
trucks use to make their deliveries.


73.

The yard is almost empty with some skips outside and various
empty pallets and industrial waste barrels.

There is a small path leading around to the front of the
building and nearby are some fields and woodlands.
                                                            
                       SINEAD
Did you see what happened to Rob?
                                                            
                       PAUL
No, we ran in opposite directions.
I don't know what happened to him.
I can't fucking believe all this
has happened!
                                                            
                       SINEAD
Do you think anyone is left?
                                                            
                       PAUL
I don't know but I'm not fucking
going back in to check.
I can't believe what that bastard
did to Johno!
                                                            
                       SINEAD
I can't even think about it yet,
It doesn't feel real.
                                                            
                       PAUL
      (Shivering.)
Feels pretty fucking real to me!
                                                            
The duo continue on and notice a security van parked ahead.
It is to dark to make out if anyone is in it.
                                                            
                       PAUL
Don't suppose the keys are still
in it!
                                                            
                       SINEAD
Be Careful Paul!
                                                            
Sinead and Paul get closer to the van and noticed some words
on the back that look like they've been painted on in Red:

TURN BACK OR DIE!
                                                            
                       SINEAD
Oh Jesus!
                                                            
Paul walks to the drivers side of the van and notices
somebody sitting still hands at the wheel.
                                                            

74.

                       PAUL
Check the tires make sure they're
OK.
                                                            
                       SINEAD
Why?
                                                            
                       PAUL
Whoever that bastard is slashed
the tires and cut off all the
phones, he wants us to be stuck
here!
                                                            
Sinead quickly checks all four tires carefully looking
around to make sure nobodies watching them.
                                                            
                       SINEAD
They're fine.
Maybe we should just get out to
the road wave down a car.
                                                            
Paul opens the door ready for the slightest movement. He
switches on the light in the car Willy's body is in the
drivers seat his hand frozen in Rigor Mortis around the
steering wheel.

Ian lies in the passenger seat covered in blood his eyes
closed but he is still breathing.
                                                            
SCENE 62.
                                                            
 
INT. EXT/CAR - NIGHT
                                                            
The back doors to the van open and Paul signals for Sinead
to get in.

He moves Ian from the passenger seat and places him in the
back of the car.
Paul is trying to pry Willy's hands from the steering wheel
which are frozen in a death grip around it.
                                                            
                       PAUL
For fuck sake let go of the
fucking steering wheel!
                                                            
Paul continues to loosen Willy's grip but to no avail.
Sinead sits in the back with Ian leaning against the window.
                                                            
                       SINEAD
Lets just get to the road before
he finds us.
                                                            

75.

                       PAUL
It could be ages before we see a
car. Half the factories are shut
down around here we were one of
the last ones still open.
                                                            
                       SINEAD
It's better than just fucking
sitting here Paul!
                                                            
                       PAUL
I've got an idea gimme that
hammer.
                                                            
Sinead hand the hammer to Paul.
                                                            
                       SINEAD
What are you going to do?
                                                            
                       PAUL
Maybe you should look away for a
minute.
                                                            
Paul looks towards Willy's lifeless pale body.
                                                            
                       PAUL
I know I didn't know yeh well pal
and I know you won't be able to
feel this but I am so fucking
sorry!
                                                            
Paul brings the hammer down on the fingers Willy's right
hand and begins prying them loose with the claws on the
hammer. He is almost gagging as he does this.

Sinead sits in the back of the security van looking away as
she hears the dull THUD of the hammer.
                                                            
                       PAUL
C'mon loosen up yeh cunt!
                                                            
The van is almost rocking with the vibrations from the
hammer.
                                                            
                       PAUL
Oh thank fuck for that!
                                                            
Willy's remaining hand comes loose and Paul unbuttons the
seat belt opens the door leaning across him trying not to
look at his body and pushes Willy's corpse out of the car
with his foot. Terry the manager watches this from the
distance with a look of shock and realises what he has to
do.
                                                            

76.

                       SINEAD
Hurry up Paul!
                                                            
Paul slides over into the passenger side of the vehicle and
starts looking under the steering wheel.
                                                            
                       PAUL
This seats all fucking wet!
You don't think he pissed himself
do you?
                                                            
                       SINEAD
For fuck sake Paul!
                                                            
                       PAUL
I don't suppose you have a
screwdriver handy?
                                                            
                       SINEAD
      (In a mixture of
       fear and
       frustration.)
Nope!
                                                            
                       PAUL
      (Shaking his head!)
Of course you don't.
                                                            
Paul opens the glove compartment and begins emptying its
content out onto the floor.
                                                            
                       PAUL
Get ready to be happy.
                                                            
Paul hold up a mobile phone like a prized trophy.

Paul sits in the car with a disbelieving look on his face
the phone still in his hand and the hammer resting on the
dashboard.
                                                            
                       PAUL
He hung up!
                                                            
                       SINEAD

                       PAUL
He said they sent a car up and the

                       SINEAD
Manager but... Paul lookout!!!
                                                            
The drivers door swings open and an enraged Terry grabs hold
of Paul by the throat and begins strangling him.
                                                            
                       TERRY
Bastard! Fucking Bastard!
                                                            
                       PAUL

Sinead! Help me for fuck sake!
                                                            
Paul who is now turning blue in the face while Sinead
struggles to get out of the van to come to his aide.

Sinead tries to break Terry's grip but he is too strong and
pushes her away.

In desperation Sinead Runs to the other side of the car and
retrieves the hammer.

She then runs to the drivers side of the car and hits Terry
on the top of the head with the hammer.
Terry eyes go white before he stumbles backwards falling to
the ground.
                                                            
Paul jumps from the vehicle and stands over Terry he is soon
joined by Sinead.

                       PAUL
Well...He's not looking too good!
                                                            
Terry's body is on the ground shaking violently with spasms
and foaming at the side of the mouth.
                                                            
                       PAUL
Should we give him mouth to mouth?
                                                            
                       SINEAD
You can if you want to.

drinking tea glad to be nearing the end of their shift.

SGT. NED MCMANUS a large burly man with a thick country
accent enters the station with a criminal in Handcuffs. The
criminal looks haggard and slightly roughed up.
                                                            
                       SGT. MCMANUS

wire a car.
One of Cullen's old crew, you can

uppercut knocking him to the ground and leaving him
breathless.
                                                            
                       SGT. MCMANUS
Take him down the cells.
You can take the cuffs off when he
calms down a bit.
                                                            
One of the Guards nod and he and his colleague drag the
whimpering criminal down to the cells for the night.
                                                            
                       SGT. MCMANUS
Fucking scumbags never like a
taste of their own medicine.

                       SGT. MCMANUS

McManus motions for the Garda O'Hanlon to stay quiet.
                                                            
The phone goes dead McManus looks up at O'Hanlon.
                                                            
                       SGT. MCMANUS

He looks hurt but he's still
breathing at least.

                       SINEAD
God Damn it!
                                                            
A rustling can be heard in the bushes and Sinead backs away

to hear her cries.
In the distance she can hear sirens and flashing lights at
the entrance to the industrial estate.

She is too far to call for help when she is tackled to the
ground by the Ian who stands over her.

She gets to her feet and is pursued by an enraged Ian who
catches up to her and grabs hold of her tightly.
                                                            
                       SINEAD
Ian?

                       IAN

                       SINEAD
Why?
                                                            
                       IAN
Does the why really matter?
                                                            
                       SINEAD
How could you do this?
                                                            
                       IAN

factory and move somewhere else.

everything to me.
I couldn't bear to go home knowing
I wouldn't ever hear his voice
again!
                                                            
                       SINEAD
What about the others they didn't
deserve this.
                                                            
                       IAN
Deserves got nothing to do with
it! Cutbacks have to be made isn't
that how the saying goes.

                       SINEAD
Ian I'm sorry for what happened to
your son and I'm sorry you lost
your job but please just......
                                                            
Ian shakes his head and tightens his grip on the knife.
                                                            
                       IAN
Been a pleasure knowing you
Sinead.
I want you to know I'll miss you
dearly.
                                                            
                       SINEAD
You sick fucking bastard!
I hope you burn in hell!
                                                            
Ian raises the knife and leans in close to Sinead.
                                                            
                       IAN
Already there!
Don't worry it'll all be over
soon.
                                                            
Rob steps out from the shadows dripping with blood from his
fall in the ladies bathroom.
                                                            
                       ROB
You got that right!
                                                            
Ian turns around only to be struck on the side of the head
with a golf club knocking him to the ground.

Ian drops the knife and tries to shield his head from the
blows reigning down on him.
                                                            
                       ROB
How do you like it you sick
FUCKING cunt!!!
                                                            
Rob continues to beat Ian with the club.
Sinead takes the knife and stabs Ian in the leg with it.


87.

Ian screams in pain and Sinead leans over him holding the
knife towards him.
                                                            
                       SINEAD
Now it's your turn!
                                                            
Suddenly a Convoy of squad cars pull up and McManus and
another GUARD jump out guns drawn.
                                                            
                       SGT. MCMANUS
Drop the knife!
                                                            
                       SINEAD
Wait you don't understand.
                                                            
                       SGT. MCMANUS
DROP IT NOW!
                                                            
                       IAN
      (Whispering.)
Remind me to pay a visit to mother
dearest Sinead.
We always did get on like a house
on fire!
                                                            
                       SINEAD
BASTARD!
                                                            
Sinead ignores the Garda's request and attempts to plunge
the knife into Ian.
                                                            
A Guard fires hitting Sinead in the chest. She falls to the
ground clutching at her wound and trying desperately to
breathe.

Rob drops the club and runs to her aide clutching her hand.
                                                            
                       SGT. MCMANUS
Who the fuck said to fire?
                                                            
A plain clothes detective looks around and steps forward
embarrassed.
                                                            
                       ROB
Sinead?
                                                            
Rob holds Sinead close as the life drains out of her.She
takes one last breath and goes quiet. Rob springs up from
the ground in a rage and lunges towards the police.
                                                            
                       ROB
You've killed her you stupid
fucking bastards!
                                                            

88.

Rob is immediately tackled to the ground by two burly
uniformed guards and handcuffed. He struggles under their
weight while one of them kneels on him pinning him to the
ground.
                                                            
                       SGT. MCMANUS
Get that bastard down to the
station!
No one gets to interview him 'til
I get there.
Spread out and cover the grounds
let's see if we can find out just
what the fuck is going on here.
                                                            
Rob is dragged towards a squad car by the two cars he is
struggling all the way.
                                                            
                       ROB
Get off me I didn't fucking do
anything!
That bastard killed my mates!
                                                            
Rob is bundled into the car and driven off.
                                                            
                       SGT. MCMANUS
Get some pressure on that mans
wound! (Speaking into his radio)
This is Detective McManus:
We need some ambulances for the
old Micro-elite Factory in the
Damastown industrial estate as
many as they can spare.
Better wake the coroner as well by
the look of things .
                                                            
McManus walks towards where Ian is lying and kneels before
him.
                                                            
                       SGT. MCMANUS
We got you Ian.
You just hang in there help is on
it's way.

SCENE 78.
                                                            
 
EXT. CAR PARK - DAY
                                                            
ADE steps out of his car only to be greeted by a scene of
pure carnage at the other end of the parking lot.

There are ambulances and police cars everywhere and forensic
teams sealing off the entrance to the factory.
Some of the victims of the previous nights massacre are
being lead out on gurneys their faces and bodies covered.

Ade approaches this scene and notices McManus and some
uniformed Guards standing around TOMMY'S black BMW where a
large bloodstain has circled underneath it.
                                                            
                       SGT. MCMANUS
Somebody get this fucking boot
open!
                                                            
Terry is being wheeled along his head is bandaged and he is
babbling incoherently.
                                                            
                       ADEWALE
Terry what happened?
                                                            
                       PARAMEDIC.
I wouldn't bother mate!
He's so out of it on painkillers
he wouldn't recognize his own
mother.
                                                            
Willy's lifeless body is being led out on a stretcher as Ade
approaches.
                                                            
                       ADEWALE
      (To no-one in
       particular.)
God in heaven no..... I don't
believe this.
                                                            
Willy's body is then lifted into the ambulance by the two
PARAMEDIC'S who accidentally DROP the trolley as they lift
him into the ambulance causing the sheet to come loose
revealing his face which looks contorted in agony.

The AMBULANCE drives off leaving Ade and SGT. McManus who is
still talking to two uniformed guards.

      (Still in shock.)
God in heaven no...
                                                            
SGT.MCMANUS steps forward towards ADE.
                                                            
                       SGT. MCMANUS
I'm assuming you work here ?
                                                            
ADE shows the policeman his workplace identification.
                                                            
                       SGT. MCMANUS
Do you know anything that can help
us? Start with where you've been
all night.
                                                            
                       ADEWALE
I don't know what to say.I came in
for the shift same time as
everybody else.
                                                            
                       SGT. MCMANUS
What time was that?
                                                            
                       ADEWALE
About seven.That's the usual start
time.
                                                            
                       SGT. MCMANUS
And where were you for most of the
night?
                                                            
                       ADEWALE
I was in receiving most of the
night and then I went out around
half one or two for some sleep in
my car. William was supposed to
wake me.
                                                            
                       SGT. MCMANUS
William?
                                                            
Ade points to the stretcher being loaded into the ambulance
and bows his head for a moment.
                                                            
                       ADEWALE
Dobbs is his last name .Look why
are you asking me all these
questions?
I don't know what's going on, can

                       ADEWALE (cont'd)

                       SGT. MCMANUS
We're still trying to figure that
out....
                                                            
                       RED HAIRED GUARD.
Sergeant? You need to see this?
                                                            
McManus walks towards the boot of Tommy's car and looks in.
Tommy's dead body is lying in the trunk in an unnatural
position, the corpse is pale and bloated and looks like it
has been there a while.
                                                            
                       RED HAIRED GUARD.
Jesus that smell!
                                                            
                       SGT. MCMANUS
Not another one for fuck sake?
Anybody I.D this guy?
                                                            
Adewale steps forward and looks in the trunk.He covers his
face and takes a step back.There is a look of obvious
discomfort on his face.
                                                            
                       ADEWALE
It's Tommy.
He's an engineer on the floor he
was supposed to be in tonight.
                                                            
McManus turns towards one of the uniformed guards.
                                                            
                       SGT. MCMANUS
Get me a list of all the workers
who were in tonight and get in
touch with whoever runs this shit
hole and see if you can confirm
it.
                                                            
                       RED HAIRED GUARD.
Do you know where I could find
that?
                                                            
                       SGT. MCMANUS
How the fuck do I...
                                                            
                       ADEWALE
On the noticeboard facing the main
floor there's a piece of paper
with all the names printed on it.
                                                            

92.

The young guard nods and walks briskly towards the factory
entrance.A young ROOKIE GARDA officer comes running up to
them with DAVE'S severed HEAD .
                                                            
                       ROOKIE GARDA.
Sorry Sir, What do you want me to
do with this?
                                                            
                       ADEWALE
My God!!!!
                                                            
All those gathered stare at the ROOKIE with a mixture of
shock and disbelief.One young Guard takes one look at the
head and throws up all over McManus's shoes.
                                                            
                       SGT. MCMANUS
Jesus fucking Christ man.You
should have just left it where you
found it! You may as well put it
with the body now that you've
fucked up the evidence!
                                                            
                       ROOKIE GARDA.
Which body sir?
                                                            
                       SGT. MCMANUS
      (Through gritted
       teeth.)
I imagine the one, missing it's
FUCKING head!
                                                            
The ROOKIE goes running back towards the factory entrance
before SLIPPING slightly and dropping the head which goes
rolling back towards the others. Adewale covers his faces
in ABSOLUTE revulsion at the sight of what's left of his
dead colleague.The ROOKIE runs back and retrieves the head
too embarrassed to catch any ones gaze.
                                                            
                       SGT. MCMANUS
Somebody get me a cloth for Christ
sake!
The rest of you get back to work.
                                                            
More body's are carried out and loaded in the remaining two
ambulances.

A FEMALE GARDA OFFICER stops to inspect a piece of paper
pinned to a noticeboard. On it are the names of all the
workers who were supposed to be on the previous nights
shift.Upon closer inspection she notices that all the
workers names are printed onto the page EXCEPT for IAN'S

hands a piece of paper to McManus.
                                                            
                       RED HAIRED GUARD.
That looks like the list sir!
                                                            
                       SGT. MCMANUS
Any of the bodies have I.D tags on
them?
                                                            
                       RED HAIRED GUARD.
Most of them except the one in the
trunk of the car.
                                                            
McManus motions for Ade to join him.Ade walks over and looks
at the list.
                                                            
                       SGT. MCMANUS
These all in tonight?
                                                            
                       ADEWALE
As far as I know yes?
                                                            
McManus turns to the Red haired guard.
                                                            
                       SGT. MCMANUS
You get that number for me?
                                                            
The Red-Haired Guard hands McManus a slip of paper.
McManus dials the number on the phone and exits the room
leaving Ade and the Red-Haired Guard staring at each other
in silence.There is a pause and McManus re-enters the room
the phone in his hand a worried look on his face.

                       SGT. MCMANUS

An impeccably dressed television reporter named LAUREN
O'HOULIHAN is standing outside the factory getting ready to
do a news report.
Her camera man is growing impatient and is looking at his
watch.
                                                            
MOST OF THIS CAN BE FILMED AS A REAL NEWS SEGMENT, WITH
VARIOUS M/S AND CU AND SOME CUTAWAYS TO GIVE IT A REALISTIC
ENOUGH FEEL.
                                                            
                       CAMERA OP

Lauren raises her middle finger and adjusts her dress before
launching into a professional tirade.
                                                            
                       CAMERA OP
Rolling.

moved to the Phillipines was last
night the scene of a series of
brutal and vicious murders which a
garda spokesman has confirmed are
some of the most brutal in the
history of the state.
A woman shot dead on the scene
initially thought to be the
culprit may have been a case of
mistaken identity.
Instead detectives are anxious to
speak with one of the survivors of
last nights atrocity .

and believed to be somewhere in
the Dublin area after absconding
from his ambulance and fatally
injuring one paramedic and leaving
another with severe brain damage.

Chuig saying good afternoon and be
careful out there.
                                                            
The Cameraman stands motionless in front of Lauren as she
spits and adjusts her dress.
                                                            
                       LAUREN O'HOULIHAN.
Right now can we get the fuck out

A Look of shock and dismay appears on Laurens face.
                                                            
                       LAUREN O'HOULIHAN.
Oh Fuck we're not going out live?
Are we?

The Camera man shrugs his shoulders as Lauren looks like a
deer caught in the headlights and is sure to be the next
Youtube sensation.
                                                            
 
EXT. WOODLAND/FIELD. - DAY
                                                            
A courting couple Ann and Barry lie on a picnic blanket set
across the grass. Some finger food and a bottle of champagne
are opened and Barry is kissing and caressing his girlfriend
who is only halfheartedly returning the gesture.
He notices his lady's discomfort and stops for a moment.
                                                            
                       BARRY
What's wrong?
                                                            
He goes to kiss her and she pulls away.
                                                            
                       ANN
Nothing it's just that....
I don't feel comfortable being
here.
                                                            
                       BARRY
Look we talked about this.....
It's just a rash, I bought some
cream and it's cleared up now....
                                                            
                       ANN
Thats not what I meant Barry.
                                                            
                       BARRY
Oh...) Breaths through his teeth)
Me neither Ha!
Gotcha !
So what's the matter with you
then.
We got fine wine,
(Turns away and frowns)
Tropical heat well almost
Chocolates
Romance so why the long face doll?
(The last line is delivered in the
style of a New York Gangster from
a 1930's Jimmy Cagney movie).
                                                            
                       ANN
It's just that.....
                                                            
He moves in closer and snuggles up to her before kissing her
lightly on the lips and moving back.

                       BARRY
      (With Sensitivity.)
Just what?
                                                            
Ann pulls away and looks up at the sky and into the distance
then back again.
                                                            
                       ANN
This is near that factory where
all those murders happened.
                                                            
                       BARRY
Is that what you're worried about?
Seriously?
                                                            
                       ANN
They say the killer's still out
there.
That he escaped from the hospital
and the Guards are looking
everywhere but can't find him.
What if he's out there now?
Watching us?
                                                            
                       BARRY
Oh come on is that what you're
worried about?
Seriously? He's not out there they
got who did it shot her right in
the noggin and nicked her
accomplice.
Any way even if the guy is still
at large.
He's not going to be coming back
here is he?
He's probably on a plane to Brazil
by now.
Or Failing that he's hold up in
some rat infested shack somewhere
like the fucking Unibomber.
Dancing around listening to Boy
George songs covered in his own
shite with his cock tucked in
between his legs and a pair of his
granny's knickers on his head.
                                                            
Ann laughs heartedly at this description and begins to
visibly relax more.
                                                            
                       ANN
I suppose you're right Don Juan.
Now where where we?

The two start kissing passionately.
Barry this time breaks off the kiss and begins to speak.
                                                            
                       BARRY
Anyway even if he is here watching
us right now.
I'm here to protect you.
                                                            
Barry flexes his skinny muscle in a mock bodybuilder pose
and Ann smiles back at him.
                                                            
                       ANN
Well then come here and wrap those
big arms around me and keep me
safe then Conan.
                                                            
Barry again starts kissing and caressing her for a moment
before breaking away mid flow causing her to look at him
with concern this time.
                                                            
                       ANN
Babe?
                                                            
                       BARRY
I've just got to heed the call of
nature.
Don't go anywhere I'll be right
back.
                                                            
Barry stands up and begins walking towards some tries.
Ann smiles in his direction.
She takes her panties off and holds them in the air teasing
him.
                                                            
                       ANN
      (Sarcastically.)
I'm ready and waiting lover-boy.
                                                            
Barry breathes deep begins to walk away and then turns
around and looks at his girlfriend.
                                                            
                       BARRY
Watch out for that escaped maniac
eh?
                                                            
Ann smiles slyly at him while Barry walks towards some trees
to answer the call of nature.
