LANTERMAN ROAD

INT. CAR - NIGHT
                                                            
1985
                                                            
We see a young woman, JESSICA, in the passenger seat and her
husband JON is driving. Jessica looks very DEPRESSED, as if
she is about to cry. Her eyes are a little red as if she
has already been crying. Jon has an IRRITATED look on his
face. They both look as if they have been ARGUING.
                                                            
Jessica is wearing a beautiful BLUE DRESS and Jon is wearing
a SUIT and TIE, as if they have come from a wedding or some
such event.
                                                            
Jessica looks as if she is all of 23 years old while Jon
looks to be maybe 4 or 5 years older. She is a pretty woman
with long blonde hair while Jon looks to be an ATHLETIC man
with very short cut hair, as if he were possibly MILITARY.
                                                            
It is very DARK outside as the road they are driving on does
not have any street lamps. The RAIN is falling at a STEADY
pace, although it is not too heavy. Jon is hunched forward
as he is trying hard to see where he is going and it looks
as if he is trying to find a particular street.
                                                            
                       JON
It's so fucking hard to see out
here. What was the name of that
fucking road that shortcuts to the
hotel?
                                                            
                       JESSICA
I don't remember.
                                                            
                       JON
Of course you don't remember. Why
the fuck would you?
                                                            
Jessica gives Jon a look as if she is going to fire back at
him but stops.
                                                            
                       JESSICA
Can we at least talk about this?
                                                            
                       JON
Talk about what? What do you want
from me?
                                                            
                       JESSICA
I want to fix this.
                                                            

2.

                       JON
I don't know if we can fix it.
                                                            
                       JESSICA
Can't we at least try?
                                                            
                       JON
I don't wanna talk any more about
it right now. I just wanna find
my way back to the hotel. When we
get there you can say what you
have to say but until then I'd
appreciate it if you just shut the
hell up.
                                                            
Jessica puts her head down SOLEMNLY.
                                                            
                       JON
Now what the hell was the name of
that road? I think it began with
an L or something.
                                                            
                       JESSICA
Wasn't it something like
Lantern...?
                                                            
                       JON
That's right. Lanterman Road. It
should be coming up here soon.
Help me look for it.
                                                            
Jessica and her husband search for the road in the DARK and
RAIN.
                                                            
                       JESSICA
I think that's it coming up right
there.
                                                            
Jon SLOWS the car down to a CRAWL until he reaches the road
and stops to read the sign.
                                                            
LANTERMAN ROAD
                                                            
                       JON
Yea, this is it. Thank God.
                                                            
The car turns down Lanterman Road. They drive down the road
in complete SILENCE. The road goes straight for a little
bit with a few houses on each side before going through the
woods. Once the road enters the woods it snakes in an ess
shape before coming to an OVERPASS that goes over the
FREEWAY. Halfway across the overpass the TRANSMISSION in

3.

their car EXPLODES. The car comes to a stop and Jon BANGS
his hands on the steering wheel.
                                                            
                       JON
FUCK!
                                                            
                       JESSICA
WHAT JUST HAPPENED?
                                                            
                       JON
The fucking transmission just
fucking dropped!
                                                            
                       JESSICA
Can you fix it?
                                                            
                       JON
Are you serious? Fuck no, I can't
fix it!
                                                            
                       JESSICA
What are we going to do?
                                                            
                       JON
Fuck, I don't know. We have to
find a fucking phone.
                                                            
                       JESSICA
Where are we going to find a phone
now?
                                                            
                       JON
JESSICA! Please just shut up and
let me think!
                                                            
Jessica looks ANGRY, however she apologizes to avoid
escalating the fight.
                                                            
                       JESSICA
I'm sorry.
                                                            
                       JON
It's alright. It's been a long
fucking night.
                                                            
The rain has now SLOWED down to a LIGHT DRIZZLE.
                                                            
                       JESSICA
Jon, we have to think of
something.
                                                            

4.

                       JON
I don't know. There were some
houses back a little bit but it's
really late. I doubt anyone is
awake.
                                                            
                       JESSICA
The hotel isn't too far from here,
is it?
                                                            
                       JON
Not too far, but it is quite a
hike, plus I don't wanna go that
far from the car.
                                                            
                       JESSICA
So what are we going to do then?
                                                            
                       JON
We may have to camp out in the car
overnight.
                                                            
Jessica grows increasingly FRUSTRATED.
                                                            
                       JESSICA
Are you serious?
                                                            
                       JON
I don't know what else to do.
                                                            
 
EXT. OVERPASS - CONTINUOUS
                                                            
They both get out of the car and Jon walks to the back of
the car and opens the trunk. Jessica pulls out and lights a
cigarette. Jon reaches in the trunk and pulls out a
FLASHLIGHT.
                                                            
                       JON
I guess it wouldn't hurt to take a
look.
                                                            
Jon turns on the flashlight and walks to the front of the
car, SHINING the light on the ground. A POOL of
transmission fluid can be seen in the beam of light on the
pavement.
                                                            
                       JESSICA
How bad is it?
                                                            

5.

                       JON
Real bad. We're definitely
staying here until morning, or at
least until someone comes along.
                                                            
Jessica SIGHS DEEPLY then takes a huge DRAG off her
cigarette.
                                                            
                       JON
It's too bad all our stuff is at
the hotel.
                                                            
FOOTSTEPS can be heard on the pavement in the distance.
                                                            
                       JESSICA
Did you hear that?
                                                            
                       JON
Hear what?
                                                            
                       JESSICA
I hear footsteps.
                                                            
Jon stops and listens. The FOOTSTEPS get closer.
                                                            
                       JON
You're right! Someone's coming!
                                                            
Jon shines the flashlight down the street. In the beam of
light, a SHADOWY FIGURE appears heading SLOWLY towards them.
                                                            
                       JON
HELLO! WE'RE BROKE DOWN OVER
HERE! WE NEED HELP!
                                                            
The shadowy figure stops and stands in the beam of light,
staring at the couple unresponsive.
                                                            
                       JON
HEY! CAN YOU HEAR ME? WE NEED
HELP!
                                                            
The figure continues to stand, staring and unresponsive. Jon
turns to face Jessica.
                                                            
                       JON
What the fuck is wrong with this
guy?
                                                            
                       JESSICA
I don't know. I don't like this.
I'm scared.
                                                            

6.

                       JON
I won't let anything happen to
you.
                                                            
Jon turns back to face the shadowy figure but it is gone.
                                                            
                       JON
Where the fuck did he go?
                                                            
                       JESSICA
I don't know.
                                                            
                       JON
He must've taken off into the
woods.
                                                            
                       JESSICA
I wanna get out of here.
                                                            
                       JON
Me too. I think maybe we should
start walking back the way we
came. I saw some houses back
there.
                                                            
                       JESSICA
Yea, but don't you think everyone
would be asleep this time of
night.
                                                            
                       JON
Probably so, but if we are in
danger, I don't care if I have to
wake someone up.
                                                            
Jon walks back to the back of the car and opens the trunk
again. This time he pulls out a TIRE IRON.
                                                            
                       JON
If that fucking guy comes back,
I'll bash his fucking head in.
                                                            
                       JESSICA
Yea, I bet. Listen to you trying
to be some macho man.
                                                            
                       JON
Don't even fucking start with me
Jess! I'm not in the fucking
mood.
                                                            

7.

                       JESSICA
Ok, ok! Can we please get going
now?
                                                            
                       JON
Yea, let's get moving.
                                                            
They start to head back the way they came, walking down the
street off the overpass and into the woods.
                                                            
LANTERMAN ROAD - CONTINUOUS
                                                            
                       JESSICA
I'm really sorry, honey. I love
you.
                                                            
                       JON
Sorry for what?
                                                            
                       JESSICA
Do I really have to say it?
                                                            
                       JON
I don't wanna talk about it right
now. Now is not the best time.
                                                            
                       JESSICA
And what would be a better time?
Huh? We're stranded in the middle
of nowhere and there's some guy
out there fucking with us. I
wanna try and fix this in case
something happens to us. I don't
want us to be left with this hole
between us.
                                                            
                       JON
I told you, nothing is going to
happen to us. I won't let noone
hurt you.
                                                            
                       JESSICA
You can't make that promise.
                                                            
Jon does not respond to her.
                                                            
                       JESSICA
Well...?
                                                            
There is still no response. Jon stops walking dead in his
tracks.
                                                            

8.

                       JESSICA
Jon, why are we stopping?
                                                            
Jon does not respond. Jessica looks him in the eyes and he
has a BLANK STARE on his face.
                                                            
                       JESSICA
ANSWER ME! WHY THE FUCK ARE WE
STOPPING?
                                                            
There is still no response.
                                                            
                       JESSICA
FINE! FUCK YOU! I'll find a way
out of here myself!
                                                            
Jessica waits for a second, but still gets no response. The
blank stare is still on Jon's face. ANGRILY she storms off,
walking towards the houses. Jon does not follow her.
Jessica stops for a second a couple feet away from him and
turns back to him.
                                                            
                       JESSICA
Last chance, asshole!
                                                            
There is still no response.
                                                            
                       JESSICA
FINE! HAVE IT YOUR WAY!
                                                            
Jessica turns back around and resumes walking away from him,
back towards the houses. After a few seconds she hears
FOOTSTEPS closing in behind her. She turns around to see
Jon standing right in front of her, the TIRE IRON in his
hand and his arm raised. He SWINGS the weapon down with
tremendous force and the screen goes BLACK.
                                                            
                                         CUT TO:
                                                            
 
EXT. LANTERMAN ROAD - EVENING
                                                            
ONE YEAR LATER
                                                            
We see a close-up of a street sign that says LANTERMAN ROAD.
                                                            
The camera pans out to view the entire street. The road
continues until it reaches a DEAD END at the entrance to the
woods. The camera SLOWLY zooms in closer to the DEAD END.
The DEAD END is a continuation of the road that is blocked
off by heavily grown greenery that has taken over the road
since it has been closed off.
                                                            

9.

It is a beautiful and warm Ohio summer evening. The sun is
still about an hour from setting. A heavy wooded area
surrounds the right side of the road while houses line the
left side. There are a few houses scattered here and there
on the right side that are standing just in front of the
heavy woods.
                                                            
We see two young boys, BOBBY and JEREMY, no more than ten
years old are playing in the street. They are brothers,
probably only a year or less apart in age.
                                                            
                       BOBBY
Let's play hide and seek!
                                                            
                       JEREMY
You count to twenty, and then come
find me.
                                                            
Bobby runs to the side of a house, the last one before the
DEAD END, and covers his face on the side and starts
counting.
                                                            
                       BOBBY
One, two, three...
                                                            
Jeremy runs off into the woods to hide.
                                                            
                       BOBBY
Eighteen, nineteen, TWENTY! Ready
or not, here I come!
                                                            
Bobby uncovers his face and takes off running around the
yard, searching for his brother. He checks everywhere but
can't find him.
                                                            
                       BOBBY
Jeremy, I'm gonna find you!
                                                            
We see Jeremy hiding behind a tree in the woods, laughing.
The camera is focused BEHIND him looking out towards the
street where we see Bobby walking from the distance
searching for his brother.
                                                            
                       BOBBY
You can't hide from me!
                                                            
The sound of Jeremy LAUGHING can now be heard from the
street.
                                                            
                       BOBBY
I hear you! I'm coming for you!
                                                            

10.

Bobby heads into the woods and starts searching the woods
for his brother tree by tree.
                                                            
WOODS - CONTINUOUS
                                                            
Jeremy starts jumping from tree to tree trying to stay
hidden. Bobby keeps searching for his brother. The camera
is now behind Bobby SLOWLY moving closer to him.
                                                            
                       BOBBY
I know you're in here!
                                                            
The camera SLOWLY creeps closer and closer to him. Bobby
QUICKLY spins around to see Jeremy standing directly in
front of him. He SCREAMS and falls backwards landing on the
ground.
                                                            
                       BOBBY
Don't do that!
                                                            
                       JEREMY
      (Laughing)
I got you!
                                                            
Bobby slowly stands up and brushes himself off.
                                                            
                       BOBBY
What do you wanna do now?
                                                            
                       JEREMY
Let's explore the woods! I wonder
if there's any caves in here!
                                                            
                       BOBBY
Don't be stupid. There's no caves
in here. This isn't the park,
it's just a small woods.
                                                            
                       JEREMY
Small? Look at it in here!
There's gotta be something cool in
here!
                                                            
The boys look deeper into the woods and see that the terrain
is extremely uneven. There are dips and drops and places to
climb.
                                                            
                       JEREMY
Come on Bobby! Let's explore!
                                                            
                       BOBBY
Oh, ok.
                                                            

11.

The two boys delve deeper into the woods. As they get
deeper the terrain gets much ROUGHER and more UNEVEN. They
move slowly through the woods climbing up and down the
uneven terrain. They come to a STEEP hill and make their
way to the top.
                                                            
At the top they come to an open area not covered by woods.
It is the remains of an old street that becomes an overpass
over the freeway. On each side of the overpass the street
is covered by the woods after a few feet.
                                                            
OVERPASS - CONTINUOUS
                                                            
                       JEREMY
This is so cool!
                                                            
                       BOBBY
This must be part of our street
that used to be open.
                                                            
The boys walk onto the overpass and look over it onto the
FREEWAY as the cars zoom back and forth.
                                                            
                       JEREMY
We should make this our secret
hideout!
                                                            
                       BOBBY
We could come and play out here
and be alone!
                                                            
                       JEREMY
Yea, I bet noone comes out here!
                                                            
There is a sound in the woods that sounds like FOOTSTEPS
crunching through the woods.
                                                            
                       BOBBY
Did you hear that?
                                                            
                       JEREMY
It sounded like footsteps.
                                                            
The boys stop for a second and listen carefully. There is
no sound.
                                                            
                       BOBBY
Maybe it was just an animal.
                                                            
                       JEREMY
Yea, probably.
                                                            

12.

The two boys make their way back to the other side of the
overpass again. When they get to the other side they hear
the sound of the FOOTSTEPS crunching in the woods again.
                                                            
                       BOBBY
I just heard it again!
                                                            
                       JEREMY
Me too. Maybe we should get out
of here.
                                                            
                       BOBBY
Don't be such a wuss!
                                                            
                       JEREMY
I'm not, it just sounds like
there's someone here.
                                                            
                       BOBBY
I told you, it's probably just an
animal.
                                                            
                       JEREMY
I don't know. That sounded like
people footsteps.
                                                            
The FOOTSTEPS can be heard again.
                                                            
                       JEREMY
See! That's no animal!
                                                            
                       BOBBY
Maybe you're right. Let's get out
of here.
                                                            
The two boys turn around to make their way back home and see
a STRANGE MAN standing at the other end of the overpass. He
is wearing a RIPPED pair of jeans and a RIPPED hooded jacket
with the hood pulled up. They can not make out any features
on his face.
                                                            
A look of FEAR comes across the boys' faces. The strange man
starts walking closer to them. A look of PANIC begins to
come over them. The two boys SLOWLY start to walk backwards
and with each step backwards they take, the strange man
takes a step towards them.
                                                            
                       BOBBY
What do you want?
                                                            
The strange man stops and stares at them. There is no
response.
                                                            

13.

                       JEREMY
      (Crying)
Please don't hurt us!
                                                            
The strange man does not respond and takes another SLOW step
towards the boys. The boys turn the other way and take off
into the woods.
                                                            
WOODS - CONTINUOUS
                                                            
The boys are running as fast as they can across the uneven
terrain. Bobby trips as his foot falls into a hole in the
ground and he breaks his ankle. He falls to the ground
CRYING and SCREAMING in pain.
                                                            
Jeremy stops and kneels down by his side, covering his
brother's mouth with one hand and using the other hand to
put his index finger in front of his mouth telling him to be
quiet.
                                                            
                       JEREMY
      (Whispers)
Shhh! He's gonna hear us!
                                                            
Bobby's CRYING becomes more of a WHIMPER. Jeremy looks
around the area for a place to hide and sees a bunch of
bushes. The sky is starting to get DARKER as nightfall is
approaching.
                                                            
                       JEREMY
      (Whispers)
Calm down. I'm gonna drag you
into the bushes over there to hide
you and I'm gonna run and get
help.
                                                            
                       BOBBY
      (Crying)
No! Please don't leave me alone
in here!
                                                            
                       JEREMY
I need to find help.
                                                            
                       BOBBY
How will you find me?
                                                            
                       JEREMY
We'll find you, but we can't stay
here and you can't keep going. I
have to find help!

                       BOBBY
I'm scared.
                                                            
                       JEREMY
Me too, but we have to get help.
You'll be ok. I promise.
                                                            
Jeremy drags his injured brother into the bushes and out of
sight. After he makes sure that Bobby is well hidden, he
takes off back into the woods to search for a way out.
                                                            
Jeremy is not running but he is making his way through the
woods at a QUICK pace. It is now getting DARKER outside
making it harder for him to see. He notices a path leading
upwards and what looks to be some open space. He makes his
way up the path only to find that he is now back at the
overpass.
                                                            
OVERPASS - CONTINUOUS
                                                            
Jeremy SLOWLY creeps down the overpass making his way to the
other side. He reaches the end of the overpass and turns
around to see if anyone is behind him but noone is there. He
turns back around to make his way back into the woods only
to see the strange man standing right in front of him.
Jeremy SCREAMS and the screen goes BLACK.

LANTERMAN ROAD
                                                            
Creepy music plays as the credits roll.
                                                            
We see police searching Jon and Jessica's car. Multiple
police cars are there and it is being treated as a crime
scene.
                                                            
We now see a series of NEWSPAPER HEADLINES detailing the
disappearances of the woman and her husband as well as the
two young brothers.
                                                            
Next we see the DEAD END at SUNDOWN. The camera SLOWLY
moves forward down the closed road and into the woods. As
the camera moves down the road NIGHT begins to fall. It
gets DARKER and DARKER as we move down the abandoned road
until we reach the OVERPASS.
                                                            
The camera moves us SLOWLY down the overpass. On the other
side we see the SHADOWY FIGURE standing on the other side.
The camera continues to slowly move towards this figure
until the screen goes BLACK.

EXT. ROOFING JOB - MORNING
                                                            
PRESENT DAY
                                                            
It is a cool, crisp Ohio summer morning and we see LUKE
MICHAELS, 29, and his friend JACOB ALEX, 25, on a roof
nailing shingles. We see a roofing crew on the ground
cleaning up.
                                                            
Luke is a clean cut handsome young man with a shaved head.
He is about 5'10" with an average build.
                                                            
His friend Jacob is about the same height and build with a
light 5 o clock shadow and a little bit longer hair.
                                                            
The sound of nails being SHOT into the roof with nail guns
ECHOES in the air like the sound of an Uzi.
                                                            
                       JACOB
I can't fuckin wait to get out of
here.

                       LUKE

something special you should pick

                       LUKE
Hell yea. That's cool.
                                                            
                       JACOB
How much is the Gold?
                                                            
                       LUKE

                       JACOB
Yea that's cool.
                                                            
                       LUKE
You know where he's paying us at

                       JACOB
No clue. I hope it's at the bar.
I'd like to grab a drink before I
head home and get ready and shit.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Me too. I love gettin paid at the
bar. Can't beat a free fuckin
drink.
                                                            
                       JACOB
Fuck no you can't. You know me.
                                                            
Jacob stops nailing shingles and walks over to the side of
the roof and looks down at the clean up crew then comes back
over to Luke.
                                                            
                       JACOB
Those fuckers better pick up the
fuckin pace. I wanna get out of

                       LUKE
We have the worst fuckin clean up
crew ever. Are they even close to

                       JACOB

                       LUKE
Yea, I'll be ok. I'm just about

Jacob climbs down the ladder and goes to help the ground
crew. Luke stays on the roof and finishes up on top.

Luke lights a cigarette, then turns the ignition and starts
the truck.
                                                            
                       JACOB

As far as I know me, you, David,
Julie, Taylor, Andre, Jason, and
Jay may bring a girl.
                                                            
                       JACOB
I wish my girl wasn't all the way

I know man, that sucks. I
couldn't handle that shit.
                                                            
                       JACOB
You're fuckin lucky. Your bitch
lives with you.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Shit, I'm lucky I have her. She's
too hot for me.
                                                            
                       JACOB
Ya, I know. So is mine. Why do

                       LUKE
You'd probably do alright.

INT. BILL'S BAR - DAY
                                                            
Luke and Jacob walk into the bar and up to the counter. The
BARTENDER walks up to them.
                                                            
                       BARTENDER
What's it gonna be guys?
                                                            
                       LUKE
You got Johnnie Walker?
                                                            
                       BARTENDER
We got Black Label and Red Label.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Yea, I'll have a Black Label and
Coke. Put it on Rob's tab.
                                                            
                       BARTENDER
Alright.
                                                            
The bartender then turns to Jacob.
                                                            
                       BARTENDER
And for you?
                                                            
                       JACOB

                       LUKE
Hey! Do you guys got an ashtray
in here?
                                                            
                       BARTENDER
No, sorry. The smoking ban
applies to bars too.
                                                            
                       LUKE
I figured. I just asked because
some bars sneak you an ashtray and
still let you smoke.
                                                            

20.

                       BARTENDER
No, sorry. The owner doesn't
wanna risk it.
                                                            
                       LUKE
I understand. It's still bullshit
though.
                                                            
                       BARTENDER
Yea, I know. It doesn't make too
much sense in bars, if you ask me.
                                                            
                       LUKE
      (Laughing)
Nothing they do ever makes sense.
                                                            
                       BARTENDER
Yea, I hear ya. I'll be right
back guys.
                                                            
The bartender walks away to make the drinks.
                                                            
                       JACOB
So, what you got planned for
today?
                                                            
                       LUKE
Shit, after this I gotta go home
and take a shower, then I gotta
scoop Andre up so we can go up to
the liquor store. Then he's comin
back to the crib with me to chill
with me and Julie til the party.
                                                            
                       JACOB
Is David home?
                                                            
                       LUKE
Fuck if I know. So, how are you

                       JACOB
I don't know man. I guess we're
doing ok. I wish she didn't live
so far away.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Why do you do this to yourself?
Why don't you find yourself a nice
girl here in Ohio?
                                                            
The bartender returns with their drinks.
                                                            

21.

                       BARTENDER

                       JACOB
Yea, thanks.
                                                            
Luke takes a sip of his drink.
                                                            
                       LUKE
I love Walker.
                                                            
                       JACOB
Yea, it's pretty good shit. Yea,
but to answer your question, I
don't know. I guess I just feel
like I can't do any better.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Sure you can. You got her, didn't
you?
                                                            
                       JACOB
      (Laughing)
Yea, I guess, but I don't even
know how I did that!
                                                            
                       LUKE
You're a good guy. You can't keep
this up man. You got to find
yourself a nice girl here in Ohio.
                                                            
                       JACOB
I guess. I don't really want to
talk about it anymore. I'll
figure out what I'm doing.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Suit yourself, anyways, I hope Rob
gets here with our money soon. I
wanna get this shit done and relax
before tonight.
                                                            
                       JACOB
Yea, I feel ya. I'd like to take
a nap myself before I come over

                       LUKE
It is what it is. I'm still
young. I can handle it.
                                                            
                       JACOB
True. Hey man, I gotta take a
piss. I'll be right back. Watch
my drink.

                       JACOB
      (Laughing)
You never know.
                                                            
Luke nods. Jacob gets up and goes to the bathroom. Luke is
sitting at the bar drinking his drink when Jacob's phone
RINGS. It is his boss, ROB. Luke answers Jacob's phone.
                                                            
                       LUKE
What's up Rob? Are you here?
                                                            
                       ROB (On Phone)
Luke? Where's Jacob?

Luke hangs up the phone and walks down the bar to where the
rest of the crew are drinking.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Guys, Rob is gonna be in the back

He walks back to his seat and sits down. Jacob is back at
his seat now.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Rob called you to tell us he'll be
here in two minutes. I answered
your phone for you.
                                                            
                       JACOB
No problem. Let's finish up these
drinks first.
                                                            
                       LUKE
I'm in no rush. The rest of the
crew gotta get thiers first.
                                                            
                       JACOB
True. Hey, did David ever tell
you if he wants to buy that Glock?
                                                            
                       LUKE
He never said anything to me.
You'll have to ask him when you
see him tonight.
                                                            
                       JACOB
Alright. Just checking. How do

                       JACOB
If you do, give me a call. I'll

Rob shuffles through a stack of TIME CARDS.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Hey man, I've been meaning to ask
you. The weather says Wednesday

                       ANDRE (On Phone)
What's up? You home now?
                                                            

26.

                       LUKE
Yea man. I just got in. I gotta
grab a shower first. You want me
to pick you up or you wanna ride
over here and scoop me up?
                                                            
                       ANDRE (On Phone)
I'll ride on over.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Alright. Cool. I gotta go put my
money away and take a shower and
get dressed and then I'll be
ready.
                                                            
                       ANDRE (On Phone)
Sounds good. So where we gotta
go?
                                                            
                       LUKE
We gotta hit the liquor store
first then we gotta hit Sheetz so
I can grab some smokes.
                                                            
                       ANDRE (On Phone)
Sounds straight. I'll be over in
about fifteen.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Cool man. See ya.
                                                            
                       ANDRE (On Phone)
Yup. Peace.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Peace.
                                                            
Luke hangs up the phone and sets it down on the coffee table
and walks into his room.
                                                            
BEDROOM - CONTINUOUS
                                                            
Luke walks over to a safe in his closet. He puts some money
in the safe and the rest in his wallet. He grabs a pair of
black and white basketball shorts, a pair of boxers and a
black beater and exits his bedroom and enters the bathroom.
                                                            
                                         CUT TO:
                                                            
LIVING ROOM - MOMENTS LATER
                                                            

27.

We see Luke, all cleaned up and dressed sitting on the couch
smoking a cigarette. There is a KNOCK at the door and he
gets up and answers the door. It is Andre.
                                                            
Andre is a good looking man, about 6'2" with a solid build
with a white/black mixed skin color.
                                                            
                       LUKE
What up big pimpin?
                                                            
                       ANDRE
Not much. What's up my nigga?
                                                            
                       LUKE
Shit man. I feel a lot better
after that fuckin shower.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
Hell yea man. I hear that. You
ready to bounce?
                                                            
                       LUKE
Yea. In a minute. I wanna show
you something first. Come in my
room.
                                                            
Luke and Andre walk into the bedroom.
                                                            
LUKE AND JULIE'S BEDROOM - CONTINUOUS
                                                            
Luke walks over to the safe and opens it up. He pulls out a
small black box and hands it to Andre.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
What's this?
                                                            
Andre opens the box.
                                                            
                       LUKE
It's Julie's engagement ring. I
haven't decided when I'm gonna
give it to her yet though.
                                                            
Andre pulls out the ring and examines it.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
That's fuckin tight bro. How much
you drop on this?
                                                            
                       LUKE
$700. I got a deal on it.
                                                            

28.

                       ANDRE
That's what's up man.
Congratulations man. She's gonna
love it.
                                                            
                       LUKE
You think so?
                                                            
                       ANDRE
Fuck yea man. That diamond is
straight.
                                                            
                       LUKE
I know, right?
                                                            
Andre puts the ring back in the box and closes it. He gives
the ring back to Luke. Luke walks back to the safe and puts
it back and locks it.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Alright man. Let's bounce.
                                                            
                                         CUT TO:
                                                            
 
INT. LIQUOR STORE - DAY
                                                            
Luke and Andre enter the liquor store and head for the hard
liquor aisle.
                                                            
                       LUKE
So how's the girl hunt going brah?
                                                            
                       ANDRE
What do you mean?
                                                            
                       LUKE
I mean are you any closer to
finding the next Mrs. Andre Tyler?
                                                            
                       ANDRE
I don't know dawg. It's been so
hard getting back into the game
after the divorce. You know, you
find a girl, you get married, and
you spend seven years together
only to have it all end and be
right back where you started.
                                                            
Andre picks up a bottle of flavored vodka and looks it over.
He puts it back on the shelf, UNINTERESTED.
                                                            

29.

                       LUKE
I guess that would be difficult.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
You're damn right it's difficult!
You spend that many years with one
woman, you start to forget how you
even picked her up.
                                                            
                       LUKE
I guess I never thought of that.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
Yea, exactly. How long have you
been with Julie now?
                                                            
                       LUKE
Five years.
                                                            
Luke picks up a bottle of Johnnie Walker Gold Label.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
Five years. Now tell me
something, in that five years,
have you ever given thought to
what you would do if you guys
broke up or something happened and
you needed to find someone else?
                                                            
                       LUKE
It never crossed my mind.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
Exactly, because you love her.
That's the way it's been for me.
I've been out of the game so long
that I forget how it works. Hell,
the game's probably changed for
all I know.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Yea, I guess you're right.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
Damn straight I'm right! I'm not
worried about it at the moment
anyway. So, do you gotta pick up
Jack for David?
                                                            
                       LUKE
Hell no. That alcoholic
motherfucker always has a bottle
of Jack at the crib man. And even
if he doesn't, he can fuckin get
            (MORE)

30.

                       LUKE (cont'd)
it himself.
                                                            
Andre grabs a bottle of Captain Morgan from the shelf.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
I hear ya.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Hey man, can you grab that bottle
of Cuervo over there for me?
                                                            
                       ANDRE
Yea, no problem.
                                                            
Andre grabs the bottle of Cuervo and hands it to Luke.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Thanks man.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
Yup, no problem. You ready to
bounce?
                                                            
                       LUKE
Yea, I think I'm good.
                                                            
Luke and Andre walk up to the counter with the liquor.
                                                            
                       LUKE
I got ya on the Captain bro.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
You sure?
                                                            
                       LUKE
Yea, I'm sure. You can get me a
pack or two of smokes.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
Alright. Cool. I can do that.
                                                            
                       LIQUOR STORE CLERK
I need to see your IDs guys.
                                                            
Luke and Andre reach in their wallets and show their IDs to
the clerk.
                                                            
                       LIQUOR STORE CLERK
Alright, that will be $115.
                                                            

31.

                       ANDRE
Damn nigga, that's some expensive
ass scotch!
                                                            
                       LUKE
Hell yea. That's the good shit.
Jacob's goin half on it with me
though.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
Oh, ok. That's straight.
                                                            
                       LIQUOR STORE CLERK
You guys have a great night.
                                                            
                       LUKE
You too man.
                                                            
Luke turns back to Andre.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Alright bro, let's get out of
here.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
Where to?
                                                            
                       LUKE
Let's go get the smokes, then we
can head back to the crib.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
Cool.
                                                            
Luke and Andre exit the liquor store.
                                                            
                                         CUT TO:
                                                            
 
INT. LUKE'S APARTMENT - NIGHT
                                                            
LIVING ROOM
                                                            
We see Luke, Andre, and Luke's girlfriend JULIANA ROSE. 24,
sitting in the living room smoking a cigarette and having a
drink. Luke and Julie are on the couch, and Andre is
sitting on a chair.
                                                            
Julie is a beautiful Italian woman with medium length black
hair and about 5'5" and about 130 lbs.
                                                            

32.

                       JULIE
I don't know if I feel like just
sitting here in the apartment
drinking all night.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Why? What did you have in mind?
                                                            
                       JULIE
I don't know but I wanna do
something.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
I don't know what we can do.
                                                            
                       LUKE
I don't know either. David and
them aren't even here yet.
                                                            
                       JULIE
When they get here we should
figure out something to do. We
could always come back here later
and drink. It's not like anyone
has anywhere they gotta be
tomorrow.
                                                            
                       LUKE
True, but like I said, I don't
know what the fuck we could do. I
don't know. Think about it and
when David and them get here we
can talk about it.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
Luke, do you wanna get on a game
of Madden until everyone gets
here?
                                                            
                       LUKE
Sure. Why the fuck not?
                                                            
                       JULIE
Oh God!
                                                            
                       LUKE
      (Laughing)
What?
                                                            
                       JULIE
You guys and that stupid Madden.
                                                            

33.

                       LUKE
      (Laughing)
What's stupid about it?
                                                            
                       JULIE
You guys should play a real game
like Mortal Kombat or something.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
That sounds fun.
                                                            
                       LUKE
      (Laughing)
I'd whoop your ass!
                                                            
                       ANDRE
Bullshit nigga!
                                                            
                       LUKE
I'd whoop your ass in Madden too
so it really makes no difference
to me.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
Bitch please! You wouldn't whoop
shit!
                                                            
                       LUKE
Yea I'm sure. You and your Browns
could totally beat my Texans.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
Nigga, you better remember who
you're talking to. I ain't the
fuckin computer.
                                                            
                       LUKE
True, but the Browns are the
Browns and the Texans are the
Texans.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
      (Laughing)
You forget so quickly all that
shit you talked about how I
couldn't beat your Texans with the
Seahawks and you were gonna drop a
hundo on me. What was the score
again bitch?
                                                            
                       LUKE
      (Laughing)
Fuck you!
                                                            

34.

                       ANDRE
Fuck me? What was the score? Oh
yea, it was 58-21! Your steers
didn't do SHIT! Maybe we should
play Kombat so you don't get
embarassed again.
                                                            
There is a KNOCK at the door.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Hey baby, that's probably Jacob.
Can you get that?
                                                            
                       JULIE
Yea.
                                                            
Julie gets up and answers the door. It is Jacob.
                                                            
                       JACOB
What's goin on guys?
                                                            
                       ANDRE
Shit man, you?
                                                            
                       JACOB
Not much.
                                                            
                       JULIE
They're arguing over who could
kick who's ass in XBOX.
                                                            
                       JACOB
Shit bitch, make it PS3 and I'll
kick both your asses.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Bullshit!
                                                            
                       JACOB
What you guys gonna play?
                                                            
                       LUKE
Mortal Kombat.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
See motherfucker! You're scared
I'll whoop your ass in Madden!
                                                            
                       LUKE
I ain't scared of shit. I just
don't wanna be in the middle of
whoopin your ass and have to turn
the shit off.
                                                            

35.

                       ANDRE
Excuses.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Whatever.
                                                            
                       JACOB
You two are hilarious.
                                                            
                       JULIE
Aren't they?
                                                            
                       JACOB
I got winner.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Alright, cool.
                                                            
Luke puts the game into the XBOX and turns it on.
                                                            
                       JACOB
David ain't here?
                                                            
                       LUKE
No, not yet. You down to go
somewhere tonight?
                                                            
                       JACOB
What you mean?
                                                            
                       LUKE
I don't know yet. Julie wants to
get out and do something but we
don't know yet. We're waitin
until Dave and them get here to
see what's up.
                                                            
                       JACOB
I thought we were just gonna hang
out here and drink.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Yea, that's what I thought, but
babygirl wants to get out a little
bit first. Maybe we can all drive
somewhere or some shit and then
come back and drink. You got
anywhere you gotta be in the
morning?
                                                            
                       JACOB
Naw man, whatever is cool with me.
                                                            

36.

                       ANDRE
Who you pickin?
                                                            
                       LUKE
Scorpion bitch!
                                                            
                       ANDRE
I'm gonna kick your ass with Sub
Zero motherfacko!
                                                            
                       JULIE
I like Ermac.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Ermac sucks!
                                                            
                       JULIE
      (Laughing)
You suck!
                                                            
                       LUKE
Hey, at least Charlie ain't
playing. He fuckin picks Cyrax
every time and uses that fucking
net over and over and fucking over
again.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
Really?
                                                            
                       LUKE
Yea. That's how I got so good
with Scorpion. I just teleport
kick his ass over and over again.
He gets so fuckin pissed.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
That's fuckin funny brah. I would
pick Raiden and teleport behind
him then do that spear shit he
does.
                                                            
                       LUKE
That's fuckin hilarious. That
would piss him off so fuckin bad!
                                                            
                       JACOB
Who's Charlie?
                                                            

37.

                       LUKE
Just some dude I've been friends
with for a while. He comes over
and gets his ass kicked in Madden
and Kombat every now and then.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
FUCKIN BITCH!
                                                            
                       LUKE
Ha! I told you I'd whoop your
ass!
                                                            
                       ANDRE
Fuck you!
                                                            
                       LUKE
Go cry. Jacob, you're up next.
                                                            
Jacob grabs the controller. Just then the front door opens
and Luke and Julie's roomate DAVID BROOKS, 29, walks in with
his girlfriend TAYLOR MITCHELL, 24.
                                                            
David is about the same height as Luke but weighs about 140
lbs, although he has more of a muscular tone. He bears a
striking resemblance to a young Eminem. He is wearing a
BEAT UP T-Shirt and a RIPPED pair of jeans, which is his
usual style.
                                                            
Taylor is only about 5'2" and 100 lbs at most. She has
medium length dark hair and dresses very FASHIONABLE.
                                                            
                       DAVID
What's up bitches? You guys ready
to party?
                                                            
                       LUKE
Is Jay still coming?
                                                            
                       DAVID
Yea, he'll be here in a few
minutes.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Cool. Hold off on the drinking
until he gets here.
                                                            
                       DAVID
Why?
                                                            

38.

                       LUKE
Julie was thinking we could go out
and do something and then come
back here and drink later.
                                                            
                       DAVID
Like what?
                                                            
                       JULIE
I don't know. I'm still thinking.
                                                            
                       DAVID
Well think quickly. I'm having a
drink now either way.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Alright.
                                                            
David goes into the kitchen to make himself a drink. Taylor
comes into the living room and sits down.
                                                            
                       TAYLOR
How is everyone?
                                                            
                       LUKE
I'm cool. I'm glad I ain't gotta
work tomorrow.
                                                            
                       TAYLOR
I hear ya. What's up Julie?
                                                            
                       JULIE
Not much. Just trying to figure
out something to do so we don't
have to sit here all night.
                                                            
Jacob gets up and goes into the kitchen to talk to David.
                                                            
KITCHEN - CONTINUOUS
                                                            
                       JACOB
You still lookin to buy that gun?
                                                            
                       DAVID
Yea. How much did you want for
that again?
                                                            
                       JACOB
$425.
                                                            
                       DAVID
What all does that come with?
                                                            

39.

                       JACOB
I'll give you the gun, two clips,
and a box of ammo.
                                                            
                       DAVID
That's straight. When you wanna
do this?
                                                            
                       JACOB
When you got the money.
                                                            
                       DAVID
I got the money now.
                                                            
                       JACOB
No shit? I got it in the car just
in case. I could go down and get
it.
                                                            
                       DAVID
Hell yea! Go get that shit.
                                                            
                       JACOB
And you got the money right now?
                                                            
                       DAVID
Yea man. It's in my fuckin closet
right now.
                                                            
                       JACOB
Ok. I'll be right back.
                                                            
Jacob leaves the apartment to go to the car to get David's
gun. David takes his drink and goes to the living room.
                                                            
LIVING ROOM - CONTINUOUS
                                                            
                       DAVID
So what did you have in mind?
                                                            
                       JULIE
I don't know. I was thinking
maybe some haunted place.
                                                            
                       DAVID
We could go to Lanterman Road.
                                                            
                       JULIE
What's Lanterman Road?
                                                            
                       DAVID
You never heard of it?
                                                            

40.

                       JULIE
No, I haven't.
                                                            
The front door opens and Jacob and JASON WHITE, 25, walk
through the door.
                                                            
Jason is David's best friend and he stands about 6'0" and
weighs about 200 lbs, mostly muscle. His arms are covered
in tattoos. He has short clipped dark hair and is wearing a
nice pair of jeans and a baggy black T-Shirt.
                                                            
                       DAVID
What's up brah?
                                                            
                       JASON
Shit man, you?
                                                            
                       DAVID
I'm about to buy this gun off of
Jacob.
                                                            
                       JASON
Yea man, that's cool. He showed
it to me downstairs. That's a
badass piece.
                                                            
                       DAVID
Yea? Let's see it.
                                                            
Jacob walks over to David and hands him the gun.
                                                            
                       DAVID
Yea man, that's straight. What
did you say you'd give me with it?
                                                            
                       JACOB
You get the gun, two clips, and a
box of ammo.
                                                            
                       DAVID
And you want $425?
                                                            
                       JACOB
Yup, I think that's fair.
                                                            
                       DAVID
Yea, I'm cool with that. I'll be
right back. I'm gonna go get the
cash.
                                                            
                       JACOB
Alright man, cool.
                                                            

41.

David exits the living room and goes into his bedroom.
                                                            
                       JASON
So what's the deal guys?
                                                            
                       LUKE
What do you mean?
                                                            
                       JASON
I mean are we getting drunk or
not?
                                                            
                       LUKE
Yea man, but hold on. We were
thinking of going out somewhere
first and coming back later to
drink.
                                                            
                       JASON
Like where?
                                                            
                       LUKE
Julie wants to go ride through
some haunted place or some shit.
                                                            
                       JASON
What, like a haunted house? That
shit aint open this time of year.
                                                            
                       JULIE
No dumbass. I meant like
somewhere that's actually supposed
to be haunted.
                                                            
David re-enters the living room.
                                                            
                       DAVID
Yea, I was just about to tell them
about Lanterman Road.
                                                            
                       JASON
You mean that road down the
street?
                                                            
                       DAVID
Yea.
                                                            
                       JASON
What the fuck is haunted there?
                                                            
                       DAVID
If you hold the fuck on I was just
about to tell the story.
                                                            

42.

David hands the money to Jacob and he gives David the gun.
                                                            
                       JACOB
Pleasure doing business with you.
                                                            
                       DAVID
No problem man. Thanks for the
hook up.
                                                            
                       JULIE
So tell us about Lanterman Road.
                                                            
                       DAVID
Ok. I can't believe none of you
heard anything about this.
                                                            
                       JASON
Naw man, I know where it's at but
I didn't know there was anything
special about it.
                                                            
                       DAVID
Oh yea. You don't remember
hearing the story of those two
kids who went missing in the 80's?
                                                            
                       LUKE
Doesn't ring a bell, no.
                                                            
                       DAVID
You didn't hear about the empty
car they found on the overpass a
year earlier either?
                                                            
                       JULIE
No.
                                                            
                       DAVID
Ok, it goes something like this.
Lanterman Road leads through the
woods and over an overpass that
goes over 680. The overpass was
closed a long time ago because the
road didn't get much traffic and
instead of keeping it up they
closed it down and let the woods
grow over the road. They closed
it shortly after they found a car
abandoned on the overpass and
never found the couple that the
car belonged to.
                                                            

43.

                       JASON
Yea, I know all about that. I
didn't know about the car though.
                                                            
                       DAVID
Yea, nobody knows much about the
car. All they know is that the
car belonged to a couple from
Cleveland that were visiting
family here and they found the car
abandoned on the overpass but
never found the couple. They've
never been found to this day. But
anyways, well there were these two
kids that lived on Lanterman Road
near where it now dead ends and
the woods take over. They were
out playing one day and never came
back. The cops searched for them
but never turned up anything. Most
people believe they got kidnapped,
while others believe they wondered
into the woods and got lost.
                                                            
                       JULIE
Well if they wandered into the
woods and got lost, don't you
think the police would've found
them or found something?
                                                            
                       DAVID
One would think so, huh? Well the
story gets weirder. There are
people who believe the woods are
haunted and that supernatural
forces are behind the boys'
disappearances.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Sounds to me like some people are
just grasping at straws here.
                                                            
                       DAVID
Maybe so, but then how would you
explain what happened to one of
the cops who helped look for the
two boys?
                                                            
                       LUKE
I don't know what happened to him
so why don't you tell us?
                                                            

44.

                       DAVID
About a week after they gave up
the search, one of the cops that
combed through the woods in the
search killed his wife and
committed suicide. It wasn't a
typical murder suicide either. It
was pretty fuckin gruesome.
                                                            
                       TAYLOR
What happened?
                                                            
                       DAVID
He built a cross, just like the
one in the Bible and crucified his
wife in the garage, then he cut
out his own eyes and bled out
right next to her.
                                                            
                       JULIE
What the fuck?
                                                            
                       DAVID
Yea, exactly.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
I call bullshit!
                                                            
                       DAVID
Why?
                                                            
                       ANDRE
Don't you think if something that
big happened that we would all
have heard of it?
                                                            
                       DAVID
Maybe not. It did happen in like
1986 or some shit like that.
People tend to keep quiet when
shit that gruesome happens. It's
not exactly a pleasant thought.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
Fair enough, but what does all
this have to do with the place
being haunted? If they're saying
he was possessed or some shit
don't you think the other cops
would've been affected too?
                                                            

45.

                       DAVID
No, if it's a possession type deal
why does everyone have to be
possessed. You're the Bible guy.
Don't demons and shit only possess
one person at a time?
                                                            
                       ANDRE
Yea, I suppose you're right.
                                                            
                       JULIE
We should go!
                                                            
                       DAVID
Yea we could. It's not too hard
to get to.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
I don't know man. I don't usually
fuck with shit like that.
                                                            
                       JASON
You don't really believe that shit
do you?
                                                            
                       ANDRE
Demons are real brah and they're
nothing to fuck with.
                                                            
                       JASON
Yea, but isn't your God supposed
to keep you safe?
                                                            
                       ANDRE
Sure, but he doesn't exactly
encourage going out and fucking
with them.
                                                            
                       DAVID
Dre don't be such a vagina.
                                                            
                       TAYLOR
Yea, we're all gonna be there. It
probably ain't real anyway.
                                                            
                       DAVID
It's just down the street. We can
walk there and take some liquor
with us and have our party on the
bridge.
                                                            
                       LUKE
I'm down.
                                                            

46.

                       JULIE
Hell yea! It sounds fuckin
awesome!
                                                            
                       JACOB
I'm in. I don't believe in demons
and ghosts anyway.
                                                            
                       JASON
Yea man. Find your balls and
let's do this.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
Fine! Fuck it. I'm in.
                                                            
                       DAVID
Hell yea! That's what I'm talking
about! I'll bring my gun.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
Explain to me what good a gun will
do against a demon.
                                                            
                       DAVID
      (Laughing)
I don't know but I'll feel safer
with the gun.
                                                            
                       JACOB
Amen!
                                                            
                       ANDRE
You guys are stupid. If we're
doing this though then let's get
the shit and go.
                                                            
                       DAVID
Let's roll then.
                                                            
                                         CUT TO:
                                                            
 
EXT. APARTMENT PARKING LOT - MOMENTS LATER
                                                            
Andre, Luke and Julie are standing in the parking lot
smoking cigarettes waiting for David, Taylor, and Jason.
Jacob is with them in the parking lot as well, however, he
is the only one not smoking. Luke is carrying a black
backpack on his back.
                                                            
                       JACOB
Dre, are you really scared to do
this?
                                                            

47.

                       ANDRE
Nigga please! I ain't scared of
shit. I just don't like playing
around with demons and shit.
                                                            
                       LUKE
I hear ya brah but seriously, I
fuckin doubt this shit is haunted.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
Probably not but like I've said
before, niggas don't fuck with
ghosts and shit.
                                                            
                       JULIE
It'll be fun and we'll all be
there. I never see shit at these
places anyway.
                                                            
                       LUKE
True. Those kids were probably
kidnapped anyway.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
Yea, probably.
                                                            
The front door to the building opens and David, Jason, and
Taylor come outside. David is also carrying a backpack on
his back and also has a flashlight in his hand.
                                                            
                       DAVID
It's gonna be dark as fuck in
those woods.
                                                            
David reaches in his pocket and pulls out a pack of
cigarettes. He lights a cigarette and puts the pack back in
his pocket.
                                                            
                       DAVID
Let's get going.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Where is it again?
                                                            
                       DAVID
Just down the street about a mile
maybe, if that. It's a little
side street just off Raccoon.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Alright then, let's get moving.
                                                            

48.

Luke lights another cigarette and they exit the parking lot
and take off down the road.
                                                            
RACCOON ROAD - CONTINUOUS
                                                            
The group is walking down Raccoon Road towards Lanterman.
                                                            
                       JACOB
So Dave, did you bring your new
gun?
                                                            
                       DAVID
Fuck yea I did.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
We'll see how good that gun does
you when you come face to face
with Satan.
                                                            
                       DAVID
      (Laughing)
You're so full of shit Bible boy.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
Yea, laugh it up nigga,when you're
burning in HELL!
                                                            
                       LUKE
So Dave, what are these woods
like?
                                                            
                       DAVID
They're pretty rough, especially
after it rains. Lucky for us the
weather has been really nice,
besides, we're gonna enter through
Lanterman Road. We won't have to
deal much with the rough terrain,
hopefully.
                                                            
                       LUKE
That's good.
                                                            
                       DAVID
Yea, we're lucky since we ain't
driving.
                                                            
                       JULIE
Why?
                                                            
                       DAVID
Because we can't park on
Lanterman. We would have to go
down farther to Webb and enter
            (MORE)

49.

                       DAVID (cont'd)
through the rough part of the
woods.
                                                            
                       TAYLOR
Why can't we park on Lanterman
baby?
                                                            
                       DAVID
Because it dead ends right after
someone's house. We can't park in
their driveway but Webb ends in a
huge circle that overlooks 680. We
can park there.
                                                            
                       TAYLOR
That's what we should've done.
                                                            
                       DAVID
No, you don't wanna hike through
that part of the woods if you can
help it, and besides the fact,
we're gonna be drinking.
                                                            
                       LUKE
I don't mind. It's a nice night
for a walk anyways.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
Yea, it is nice out.
                                                            
The camera SLOWLY pans out and we see the group continuing
to walk towards Lanterman. The camera pans out far enough
where we no longer see them but instead we see what looks
like a satellite view of the street and we can tell that up
ahead is a heavily wooded area.
                                                            
                                         CUT TO:
                                                            
 
EXT. LANTERMAN ROAD - MOMENTS LATER
                                                            
We see a close-up of the Lanterman Road street sign before
the camera pans out to show the group at the entrance to the
road.
                                                            
                       DAVID
Last chance to turn back Dre.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
I'm cool man.
                                                            

50.

                       LUKE
You sure brah? It is kind of
creepy out here I'm not gonna lie.
                                                            
                       JULIE
This is fuckin sweet.
                                                            
The group makes their way down the road towards the dead
end.
                                                            
                       JASON
This IS pretty fuckin sweet.
                                                            
                       DAVID
Just wait until you see the
bridge.
                                                            
                       JACOB
I can't wait. I bet It's gonna be
awesome.
                                                            
                       JULIE
Baby, we should fuck in the woods.
                                                            
                       LUKE
      (Laughing)
Holy shit! Really?
                                                            
                       JULIE
Hell yea! We never fucked in the
woods.
                                                            
                       JASON
You are one lucky son of a bitch
Luke. You do fuckin know that,
right?
                                                            
                       LUKE
Fuck yea I know it! You wish you
had a bitch like mine.
                                                            
                       JASON
Damn straight I do!
                                                            
                       DAVID
I got a bitch like that too. Ain't
that right baby?
                                                            
                       TAYLOR
You know it.
                                                            

51.

                       JACOB
      (Laughing)
Something tells me Dave and Luke
are gonna be gettin some sweet
pussy while us single
motherfuckers whack off in the
haunted ass woods.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
Speak for yourself nigga. My
black ass is gonna get drunk as
fuck out here.
                                                            
                       JASON
      (Laughing)
Yea, and then you're gonna spray
your kids all over the bushes!
                                                            
                       ANDRE
You are one particularly troubled
Romulan, you know that right?
                                                            
                       JASON
What the fuck are you talking
about?
                                                            
                       ANDRE
Over your fuckin head, clown.
                                                            
The group reaches the dead end.
                                                            
                       DAVID
We're here.
                                                            
                       JULIE
Holy shit that's creepy as fuck!
                                                            
                       ANDRE
Fuck yea it is.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Let's do this!
                                                            
The group makes their way into the woods. The road is still
partially intact but the woods have all but completely taken
over. All that really remains of the road is a worn down
and beaten path through the woods that is only slightly
better than the woods itself.
                                                            
                       JACOB
This shit is crazy!
                                                            

52.

                       DAVID
I told you guys. Now aren't you
glad we walked here instead of
entering through Webb Road?
                                                            
                       TAYLOR
Fuck yea! How far down is this
bridge?
                                                            
                       DAVID
Not too far.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
That flashlight ain't too much
help brah.
                                                            
                       DAVID
Well, would you rather I turn it
off?
                                                            
                       ANDRE
No. I'm just saying.
                                                            
                       DAVID
Ok, then quit your bitching.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
I'm not bitching, I'm just saying.
                                                            
                       JASON
Sounds like bitching to me.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
Who asked you?
                                                            
                       LUKE
Everybody just shut the fuck up!
We're out here to have a good
time.
                                                            
                       TAYLOR
Where does this road come out on?
                                                            
                       LUKE
46.
                                                            
                       JULIE
They should clear it and re-open
it.
                                                            

53.

                       DAVID
I think they plan on it before
they open up that new casino on
46.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
That would probably be a good
idea.
                                                            
                       DAVID
Yea, I heard they plan on
re-opening the road in the next
year or two.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
They should probably clear out
some of these woods and start
building shit around here like
maybe some more hotels or
something like that.
                                                            
                       DAVID
I don't know what they plan to do
with the woods.
                                                            
                       LUKE
I guess it would make sense with
the road re-opening and the casino
coming at the other end to knock
out at least some of this shit and
build something useful.
                                                            
                       JULIE
Yea.
                                                            
                       TAYLOR
I see an opening up ahead.
                                                            
                       DAVID
That would be the bridge.
                                                            
They continue to make their way down the BEATEN road towards
the overpass.
                                                            
                                         CUT TO:
                                                            
OVERPASS - MOMENTS LATER
                                                            
The group exit the woods and arrive at the overpass.
                                                            
                       DAVID
We're here.
                                                            

54.

                       JULIE
This is pretty cool.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
It's creepy as fuck out here.
                                                            
                       JASON
I like it.
                                                            
They make their way to the middle of the overpass and look
over at the freeway down below. A car ZOOMS by every so
often but the freeway is pretty dead this time of night.
                                                            
The pavement on the overpass is CRACKED and shows major
signs of neglect. On either side of the overpass the road
is clear of the woods for a couple feet before becoming
covered again.
                                                            
                       DAVID
Let's break out the drinks!
                                                            
                       ANDRE
Did either of you think to put
cups or shot glasses or something
in either one of those bags?
                                                            
                       LUKE
I did.
                                                            
                       DAVID
So did I.
                                                            
                       JASON
Did you guys bring something to
mix it with or do we just have the
liquor?
                                                            
                       DAVID
I just brought Jack.
                                                            
                       LUKE
I got the Gold Label, the Cuervo,
and the Captain. I didn't think
to bring your Ginger Ale dawg.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
No big deal. I can drink the shit
straight.
                                                            
                       JACOB
I can't wait to try some of that
fuckin Gold Label.
                                                            

55.

                       LUKE
Yea man, that shit's gonna be
fire.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
It better be for how much you guys
fuckin paid for it.
                                                            
                       DAVID
How much was that shit?
                                                            
                       LUKE
$80 I think.
                                                            
                       JASON
Fuck! You better let me get a
shot of that shit!
                                                            
                       JACOB
      (Laughing)
$10 a shot.
                                                            
                       JASON
Fuck you!
                                                            
                       JACOB
I'm just fuckin with ya.
                                                            
                       LUKE
      (Laughing)
I'll give you a shot if you
behave.
                                                            
                       JASON
Motherfucker, I always behave.
                                                            
                       JULIE
      (Laughing)
Yea right!
                                                            
                       JASON
I do!
                                                            
David and Luke both pull some red plastic cups out of their
bags and they get out the liquor bottles and set them down
on the road.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Everybody get what you want. I'm
not your fuckin bartender.
                                                            
Luke, Jacob, and Jason each pour themselves a little bit of
the Gold Label. Luke pours Julie a little bit of Cuervo

56.

while Andre pours the Captain. David and Taylor each have
Jack.
                                                            
                       JASON
Cheers!
                                                            
Everybody knocks their glasses together and chugs down the
liquor.
                                                            
                       JACOB
Fuck that's good shit!
                                                            
                       LUKE
Hell yea!
                                                            
                       JASON
Yea man, that's smooth as fuck.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
Let me get a shot of that.
                                                            
Andre hands Luke his glass and he pours him a shot of the
Gold Label. Andre takes the shot.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
Damn! That is good.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Hell yea man. Johnnie Walker is
bad ass.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
I don't normally like scotch.
                                                            
                       LUKE
It's a blended scotch whiskey.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
Yea man, that's pretty straight.
                                                            
Everybody pours another drink. This time they sip the
drinks instead of shooting them down.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
It's really not that bad out here.
                                                            
                       LUKE
No. It's kind of creepy I'll
admit but it's not so bad when you
got a group of people.
                                                            

57.

                       JULIE
It would be scary as fuck if you
were alone or with only one or two
people.
                                                            
                       JACOB
      (Laughing)
It kinda reminds me of Friday the
13th or The Burning out here.
                                                            
                       TAYLOR
      (Laughing)
Shut up!
                                                            
                       JACOB
      (Laughing)
What?
                                                            
                       TAYLOR
Don't say shit like that!
                                                            
                       DAVID
You know I'll protect you baby.
                                                            
                       JULIE
So baby, are you gonna fuck me out
here?
                                                            
                       LUKE
      (Laughing)
What? I wouldn't even know how to
fuck in the woods.
                                                            
                       DAVID
It's easy bro. Just take her into
the woods so we can't see your ass
and bend her over a tree and hit
it doggie.
                                                            
                       JULIE
That sounds hot!
                                                            
                       LUKE
      (Laughing)
Yea, I suppose that would work.
                                                            
                       JULIE
So are we or not?
                                                            
                       LUKE
Hold on. Let's get a little drunk
first.
                                                            

58.

                       TAYLOR
We should fuck too.
                                                            
                       DAVID
Hell yea, you know it!
                                                            
                       JACOB
      (Laughing)
I'll take a blowjob!
                                                            
                       LUKE
You better get you a chick first.
                                                            
                       JASON
Dre will give you a blowjob.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
      (Laughing)
Nigga, fuck you. If anyone's
gonna blow someone, I would think
it would be your fruity ass.
                                                            
                       JASON
I ain't fuckin gay!
                                                            
                       ANDRE
Nigga please! You're fruitier
than Tucan Sam!
                                                            
                       JASON
Bitch I'm more of a man than
you'll ever be!
                                                            
                       ANDRE
Yea, keep talkin shit.
                                                            
                       JASON
You wanna put money on it?
                                                            
                       ANDRE
And how would we do that?
                                                            
                       JASON
$10 says I can knock out more
push-ups than you right here right
now.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
      (Laughing)
Are you fucking serious? I'd
fuckin smoke you.
                                                            

59.

                       JASON
      (Laughing)
Put up or shut up bitch.
                                                            
                       LUKE
      (Laughing)
It's like watching Mac and Dennis
on It's Always Sunny!
                                                            
                       ANDRE
You're on!
                                                            
Jason pulls out a $10 bill and hands it to Luke.
                                                            
                       JASON
Give Luke your $10 and let's do
this.
                                                            
Andre pulls out a $10 bill and hands it to Luke.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
You done fucked up bro.
                                                            
                       JASON
We'll see about that. Ready, set,
GO!
                                                            
Jason and Andre drop to the floor and start knocking out
push-ups. Jason knocks out 27 and Andre finishes with 35.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
      (Laughing)
That's what you get for talkin
shit motherfucker!
                                                            
                       JASON
Double or nothing!
                                                            
                       ANDRE
Come on man! You know you don't
wanna do that!
                                                            
                       JASON
I said double or nothing!
                                                            
Jason pulls out a $20 bill and hands it to Luke.
                                                            
                       JASON
Ready, set, GO!
                                                            
They drop to the ground and start knocking out push-ups
again. This time Jason finishes with 20 and Andre again
knocks out 35.
                                                            

60.

                       ANDRE
      (Laughing)
You give up yet?
                                                            
                       JASON
For now. I don't have anymore
money on me, but this ain't over.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
Sure thing boss. Come see me when
you wanna lose some more paper.
LUKE, my money please.
                                                            
Luke hands the $40 to ANDRE.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
      (Laughing)
Thank you, come again!
                                                            
Jason pours himself a drink of Jack and Dre pours another
drink of Captain. Julie moves closer to Luke and starts to
try and seduce him.
                                                            
                       JULIE
You better fuck me. I'm horny.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Alright baby, let's go.
                                                            
Luke and Julie walk off into the woods on one side of the
bridge.
                                                            
                       TAYLOR
Let's go baby.
                                                            
                       DAVID
I guess we'll be right back.
                                                            
                       JACOB
      (Laughing)
Don't be too quick.
                                                            
                       DAVID
Yea, yea. Mr. funny fuck.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
You better take your time because
trust me, if you come back too
soon I'm gonna have jokes all
night.
                                                            
David and Taylor walk off into the woods on the opposite
side of the bridge as Luke and Julie.
                                                            

61.

                       JACOB
      (Laughing)
And then there were three.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
I got a drinking game.
                                                            
                       JACOB
Yea, what's up?
                                                            
                       ANDRE
Each one of us places a bet on
which couple comes back first.
Everyone whose wrong has to take a
half glass shot.
                                                            
                       JASON
I'm in.
                                                            
                       JACOB
      (Laughing)
Me too. I got David cumming too
soon!
                                                            
                       JASON
Seriously? Luke will be back in
five more minutes.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
I'm bettin on my boy to tear that
ass up! David will be back first.
                                                            
                                         CUT TO:
                                                            
WOODS - CONTINUOUS
                                                            
We see Luke and Julie making out next to a tree. They both
have already removed their shirts.
                                                            
                       JULIE
Oh my God baby, this is so hot.
                                                            
LUKE is kissing her neck.
                                                            
                       JULIE
Oh my God! I want you to fuck me
now!
                                                            
Julie pulls down her pants and turns around putting her
hands on a large tree. Luke pulls down his pants and gets
behind her.
                                                            

62.

We see them from the waist up and we can tell that Luke is
thrusting into her. He leans forward so his chest is
against her back and whispers in her ear.
                                                            
                       LUKE
I love you.
                                                            
                       JULIE
I love you too.
                                                            
                                         CUT TO:
                                                            
We now see David and Taylor in another part of the woods.
David is sitting on a large log and Taylor is in her bra and
panties dancing sexily in front of him.
                                                            
                       TAYLOR
What do you want me to do?
                                                            
David doesn't respond. He just stares at her with DESIRE.
                                                            
                       TAYLOR
I know what you want.
                                                            
                       DAVID
And what's that?
                                                            
                       TAYLOR
You just sit there and I'll show
you.
                                                            
Taylor moves SLOWLY and SEXILY towards David then kneels
down in front of him. She unzips his jeans and now we see
just his face. His facial expressions show EXTREME PLEASURE
as Taylor is performing oral sex on him.
                                                            
                       DAVID
Holy shit!
                                                            
Taylor comes up for a moment.
                                                            
                       TAYLOR
You like?
                                                            
                       DAVID
Fuck yea!
                                                            
Taylor comes up and makes out with David for a moment then
her head goes back down.
                                                            
                                         CUT TO:
                                                            

63.

OVERPASS - CONTINUOUS
                                                            
We see Jason, Andre, and Jacob standing around on the
overpass and they are clearly more INTOXICATED.
                                                            
                       JACOB
So Dre, are you still scared?
                                                            
                       ANDRE
Why do you keep saying scared? I
never said scared. I just said I
don't fuck with demons and ghosts
and shit.
                                                            
                       JASON
Jesus Christ dude! That shit
ain't real.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
Perhaps this particular instance
is fake, but no brah, demons are
very real and so is Satan.
                                                            
                       JASON
Dude, look at how many different
religons are in the world. Each
one is different. You mean to
tell me that many people are
wrong? They can't all be right.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
No they can't. This is what I
choose to believe. Am I wrong?
Maybe, but I'm the only one that
has to answer for my decisions in
the end just as only you can
answer for yours.
                                                            
                       JACOB
I believe in a God, but not in one
particular religon.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
I can respect that brah, but I
just have a hard time respecting
the idea that there is nothing.
                                                            
                       JASON
I never said I don't believe in
anything, I'm just saying there's
a lot of choices and they can't
all be right.
                                                            

64.

In the background the STRANGE MAN appears at the end of the
overpass, watching them silently. None of the three notice
him watching.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
So what do you believe in?
                                                            
                       JASON
Honestly, I don't know, but I know
I don't believe in demons and the
devil.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
That's your business brah, but one
day I promise you that you'll see
proof of Satan and God.
                                                            
                       JASON
Maybe, maybe not. I'm still
young. I got a long time before I
need to worry about what's after
this life.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
That's just it brah, you never
know. Nobody is promised
tomorrow.
                                                            
                                         CUT TO:
                                                            
WOODS - CONTINUOUS
                                                            
We see Luke and Julie still having sex. Luke is still
hunched over her entered from the back. They are extremely
SWEATY and in the moment.
                                                            
The faint sound of CHILDREN CRYING can be heard in the near
distance. LUKE stops.
                                                            
                       JULIE
What's wrong baby?
                                                            
                       LUKE
Did you hear that?
                                                            
                       JULIE
Hear what?
                                                            
                       LUKE
It sounded like children crying.
Not babies, but older kids, teens
maybe.
                                                            

65.

                       JULIE
I didn't hear anything. You're
hearing things. Are you gonna
finish fucking me or not? I was
almost there.
                                                            
                       LUKE
I don't know babe. I swear I
heard children crying.
                                                            
They both stop and listen but there is nothing but SILENCE.
                                                            
                       JULIE
I don't hear anything.
                                                            
                       LUKE
I swear I heard it, clear as day.
I'm not insane.
                                                            
                       JULIE
I never said you were.
                                                            
The CRYING can be heard again, this time it sounds CLOSER.
                                                            
                       LUKE
There! I just heard it again!
Don't tell me you didn't hear
that!
                                                            
                       JULIE
Oh I heard that. What the fuck
was that?
                                                            
They both get dressed and walk around looking for the
source.
                                                            
                       JULIE
That sounded awfuly close.
                                                            
                       LUKE
It sure the fuck did. That's
fuckin strange.
                                                            
                       JULIE
We're not far from the bridge. I
wonder if anyone else heard it.
                                                            
                       LUKE
We should go check.
                                                            
                       JULIE
I don't hear it anymore.
                                                            

66.

                       LUKE
Me neither. We better get back
with the group.
                                                            
                                         CUT TO:
                                                            
We now see David and Taylor again. Taylor is still going
down on him. David is looking down and watching her. He
leans his head back in PLEASURE but as he does he notices
the strange man STARING at them from a short distance.
                                                            
The strange man is standing between two trees staring at
them but his face cannot be made out in the darkness. David
PUSHES Taylor to the side and JUMPS up, pulling up his
pants as he arises.
                                                            
                       DAVID
WHAT THE FUCK! JASON IS THAT YOU?
                                                            
There is no response. The strange man continues to stare at
them. Taylor turns around and sees him standing there.
                                                            
                       TAYLOR
What the fuck!
                                                            
                       DAVID
Jacob?
                                                            
No response.
                                                            
                       DAVID
Dre? What the fuck man? Not
cool.
                                                            
Still no response.
                                                            
                       DAVID
Whoever you are you better get the
fuck out now! You don't know who
you're fucking with.
                                                            
The strange man continues his SILENT STARE. David looks
over at Taylor and she looks at him.
                                                            
                       DAVID
I want you to run back to the
bridge now! Get Jason and tell
him to bring my gun NOW!
                                                            
They both look back up and the strange man is now gone.
                                                            
                       TAYLOR
Where the fuck did he go?
                                                            

67.

                       DAVID
I don't know but we gotta get the
fuck back to the bridge now.
                                                            
                                         CUT TO:
                                                            
OVERPASS - CONTINUOUS
                                                            
Back at the bridge Andre, Jacob, and Jason are hanging out.
                                                            
Luke and Julie return first.
                                                            
                       JASON
No shit! Drink bitches!
                                                            
                       ANDRE
      (Laughing)
Fuck! Damn nigga, you fucked me!
                                                            
                       LUKE
What are you talking about?
                                                            
                       JACOB
We all had a bet on who would cum
first, you or David. Me and Dre
had your back dawg and you fucked
us.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Sorry to disappoint you but if it
helps I didn't finish.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
Why not?
                                                            
                       LUKE
Did you guys hear anything
strange?
                                                            
                       JACOB
No. Like what?
                                                            
                       JULIE
We heard children crying.
                                                            
                       JASON
      (Laughing)
Bullshit!
                                                            
                       LUKE
No, I'm serious.
                                                            

68.

                       ANDRE
Don't fuck with me bro.
                                                            
                       LUKE
I'm not.
                                                            
                       JASON
Yea you are. I'm not fuckin
buying dude.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Why would I lie about this?
                                                            
                       JASON
Because you think you can scare us
and make us forget you're a minute
man.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Whatever man, but when DAVID gets
back we're fuckin gone.
                                                            
                       JASON
Suit yourself, but in the
meantime, guys, I do believe a
drink awaits you.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
Fuck! Well a bet's a bet.
                                                            
Jacob and Andre each pour their drink but before they can
drink David and Taylor come RUNNING out of the woods and
onto the bridge.
                                                            
                       JASON
What's wrong with you two?
                                                            
                       DAVID
I need my gun! We need to get the
fuck out of here NOW!
                                                            
                       ANDRE
Whoa whoa whoa! Slow the fuck
down. What happened?
                                                            
                       JULIE
Did you hear the crying children
too?
                                                            
                       DAVID
What? No. We gotta go.
                                                            

69.

                       LUKE
What happened?
                                                            
                       DAVID
We saw a dude. He just stood
there and stared at us and then he
was gone.
                                                            
                       JASON
      (Laughing)
Bullshit! They tried pulling this
shit on us whith some crying
children bullshit. I'm not buying
it bro.
                                                            
                       DAVID
Ask Tay. She saw him too.
                                                            
Everyone looks at Taylor but she doesn't say a word. She
just stands there with a BLANK STARE on her face.
                                                            
                       JACOB
Taylor, whhat did you see?
                                                            
She does not respond. The BLANK STARE remains on her face.
                                                            
                       DAVID
This is bullshit! We're leaving.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
Hell yea! I'm with you!
                                                            
David reaches into his backpack and pulls out his GUN and a
LARGE HUNTING KNIFE.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Why did you bring a knife?
                                                            
                       DAVID
You never know when you'll need
one in the woods. Be glad I
brought it.
                                                            
David keeps the gun and hands the knife to Jacob.
                                                            
Taylor starts walking SLOWLY to the side of the bridge and
climbs up on the side and just stands there, the BLANK STARE
still on her face.
                                                            
                       DAVID
Taylor! What the fuck are you
doing?
                                                            

70.

She does not respond. David lunges forward to pull her back
but before he can she falls backwards and falls down to the
freeway below, CRASHING onto the pavement and SHATTERING her
skull. Everyone SCREAMS in shock and fear.
                                                            
                       JULIE
WHAT THE FUCK?
                                                            
                       ANDRE
Holy shit! I told you we
shouldn't have come here!
                                                            
David looks over the bridge and sees Taylor's LIFELESS and
BLOODY body laying on the pavement.
                                                            
In the distance the HEADLIGHTS of an approaching car can be
seen. David jumps back then takes a DEEP BREATH to calm his
nerves.
                                                            
                       DAVID
      (Calmly)
We gotta get out of here.
                                                            
David QUICKLY grabs his stuff and puts it in his backpack.
He hands the bag to Jason.
                                                            
                       DAVID
Jay, can you carry this?
                                                            
                       JASON
Yea, no problem.
                                                            
Luke gathers up his stuff and puts it in his backpack and
slings it on.
                                                            
                       JASON
I can't believe this shit!
                                                            
                       ANDRE
Well you better believe it because
it sure as shit is real.
                                                            
They turn to leave the overpass the way they came but see
the STRANGE MAN standing at the entrance to the woods
STARING at them.
                                                            
                       DAVID
WHO THE FUCK ARE YOU?
                                                            
There is no response.
                                                            

71.

                       DAVID
I ASKED YOU A FUCKING QUESTION
ASSHOLE!
                                                            
The strange man turns and walks back into the woods.
                                                            
                       DAVID
What the fuck is going on?
                                                            
                       ANDRE
Ain't it obvious bro?
                                                            
                       DAVID
What?
                                                            
                       ANDRE
That dude ain't real bro. That's
a fuckin demon or some shit!
                                                            
                       JASON
Bullshit!
                                                            
                       ANDRE
Bullshit nothing motherfucker!
Explain this shit then!
                                                            
                       JACOB
I believe it.
                                                            
                       JASON
Come on man. You want obvious?
Isn't it obvious? Some dude is
out here fucking with us. Taylor
was drunk as fuck and the alcohol
mixed with the fear made her do
something stupid.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
I don't think it's that simple.
                                                            
                       JACOB
I hate to say it, but I agree.
There is definitely something more
going on here.
                                                            
                       JASON
Not you too Jacob! I thought you
didn't believe in shit like this.
                                                            
                       JACOB
I never said that. I believe in
what I see and what I see seems a
little bit deeper than just that.
                                                            

72.

All of the sudden Taylor's voice can be heard coming from
the woods.
                                                            
                       TAYLOR (OS)
Help me!
                                                            
                       JASON
What the fuck was that?
                                                            
                       JULIE
That sounded like Taylor.
                                                            
                       TAYLOR (OS)
Help me!
                                                            
                       JASON
Fuck! There it is again!
                                                            
                       DAVID
TAYLOR!
                                                            
                       TAYLOR (OS)
Help me!
                                                            
Andre looks over the bridge and notices that Taylor's body
is missing.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
Her body ain't there no more! It's
gone!
                                                            
                       JACOB
Well then she's still alive!
                                                            
                       JASON
How in the fuck is that even
possible?
                                                            
                       ANDRE
I told you motherfucker, this
isn't cut and dry.
                                                            
                       DAVID
TAYLOR! WHERE ARE YOU?
                                                            
                       TAYLOR (OS)
Help me! I'm in the woods! I
can't walk!
                                                            
                       DAVID
Stay there, I'm coming!
                                                            

73.

                       LUKE
We're coming with you.
                                                            
                       DAVID
No, you guys get the fuck out of
here. I'll go look for her.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
No, you need help. We're coming
with you then we can all get the
fuck out of here together.
                                                            
                       TAYLOR (OS)
Help me!
                                                            
                       DAVID
We're coming baby! Just hold on!
                                                            
Everybody takes off running into the woods to look for
Taylor.
                                                            
WOODS - CONTINUOUS
                                                            
                       DAVID
TAYLOR! WHERE ARE YOU?
                                                            
                       TAYLOR (OS)
I'm over here! Help me!
                                                            
                       LUKE
Where's over here?
                                                            
There is no response.
                                                            
                       DAVID
TAYLOR!
                                                            
Silence.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
She must've passed out.
                                                            
                       DAVID
We gotta find her!
                                                            
                       JACOB
TAYLOR!
                                                            
Silence. The group stays close together, searching the
rough terrain, trying to move towards the last place they
heard her voice coming from.
                                                            

74.

                       JULIE
She can't be far.
                                                            
                       JASON
This is fucked up! I don't
believe this shit!
                                                            
                       ANDRE
Well get used to it because it's
fucking happening!
                                                            
                       DAVID
TAYLOR!
                                                            
All of the sudden Taylor's voice is heard right behind them.
                                                            
                       TAYLOR (OS)
Baby.
                                                            
Everybody SPINS around as fast as they can to see Taylor
standing in front of a tree. She looks NORMAL as if nothing
has happened to her.
                                                            
                       JASON
What the fuck?
                                                            
                       DAVID
Taylor?
                                                            
                       TAYLOR
Baby, I'm ok.
                                                            
                       DAVID
Your head was split wide open! How
the hell are you ok?
                                                            
                       TAYLOR
Come to me. I love you.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
Don't do it brah. I don't like
how this looks.
                                                            
                       TAYLOR
Hold me.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Something's not right man.
                                                            
David SLOWLY walks closer to Taylor.
                                                            
                       TAYLOR
Hold me baby.
                                                            

75.

                       JACOB
Don't fuckin do it man!
                                                            
David doesn't listen. He keeps moving closer to Taylor. As
he gets closer everyone else has a look of ANXIETY on their
face.
                                                            
                       DAVID
Baby, is it really you?
                                                            
                       TAYLOR
It's me baby. Hold me.
                                                            
Everyone looks on in anticipation as David leans in the hold
her. As soon as he wraps his arms around her she DISAPPEARS
into thin air.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
HOLY SHIT! THIS IS FUCKED UP!
                                                            
David stands there on the spot where Taylor just was only
seconds ago.
                                                            
                       LUKE
David! Are you ok?
                                                            
There is no response. David just stands there SILENT. He
does not even turn around to face the rest of the group.
                                                            
                       JASON
DAVID!
                                                            
There is no response. Andre turns to Luke.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
What the fuck do we do now?
                                                            
                       LUKE
I don't know.
                                                            
Jacob starts walking towards David.
                                                            
                       LUKE
JACOB! What the fuck are you
doing?
                                                            
                       JACOB
Don't worry.
                                                            
He takes a few more steps towards David.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
Dude, come back here.
                                                            

76.

Jacob moves closer to David. David is still standing
MOTIONLESS and SILENT staring off into the distance.
                                                            
                       JACOB
David?
                                                            
Jacob reaches out for David's shoulder. Just as he is about
to touch him, David QUICKLY spins around and shoots Jacob in
the face with his gun POINT BLANK. Jacob's face EXPLODES
from the impact of the bullet.
                                                            
                       JASON
HOLY FUCKING SHIT!
                                                            
David drops the gun and stares BLANKLY at Jacob's dead body.
                                                            
                       DAVID
DAVID! WHY THE FUCK DID YOU DO
THAT?
                                                            
Julie is SOBBING uncontrollably.
                                                            
David looks up from Jacob's body and stares at the remaining
group with his BLANK STARE. He SLOWLY reaches down and
grabs the KNIFE from next to Jacob's body.
                                                            
                       JULIE
What the fuck is he doing?
                                                            
                       LUKE
DAVID! PUT DOWN THE KNIFE!
                                                            
There is no response.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
Put down the knife. Everything is
going to be ok. Just put down the
knife and talk to us.
                                                            
                       LUKE
We can help you. Just put the
knife down and talk to us.
                                                            
David doesn't respond. He takes a few small steps towards
the group and stops.
                                                            
                       JASON
Bro, put the knife down.
                                                            
David continues to stare BLANKLY at the group.
                                                            

77.

                       LUKE
FUCK! DAVID! PUT THE FUCKING
KNIFE DOWN!
                                                            
David's facial expression does not change as he takes the
knife in both hands, raises it above his head, then PLUNGES
it deep into his lower stomach, RIPPING it upwards cutting
his stomach wide open.
                                                            
The group GASPS in SURPRISE and FEAR. David drops the knife
to the ground then reaches inside his open stomach, pulling
out his intestines with his bare hands.
                                                            
                       JASON
FUCK THIS!
                                                            
Jason drops the backpack and takes off running towards David
and runs right past him, scooping up the GUN off the ground
and taking off by himself into the woods.
                                                            
David collapses to the ground dead, his intestines hanging
out in his hands.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
We gotta get the fuck out of here,
like NOW!
                                                            
                       JULIE
What the fuck is going on?
                                                            
                       ANDRE
It seems to me there's a demon in
these woods and it's possessing
each of us one by one and turning
us into some kind of homicidal and
suicidal zombies. If we don't find
a way out of here fast, we're
going to be next.
                                                            
                       JULIE
What about Jason?
                                                            
                       LUKE
Fuck him. He's on his own now and
I think that's just how he wants
it. We need to worry about us.
Which way do we go?
                                                            
                       ANDRE
It seems to me it would be easiest
to go back the way we came and
take the road path out of here.
                                                            

78.

                       LUKE
Fine by me. Let's get moving. The
longer we stay here and talk, the
more chance that thing has of
getting us too.
                                                            
                       JULIE
But that's the way Jason ran. What
if we run into him?
                                                            
                       ANDRE
He's trying to get out just like
us.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Wait a minute. She has a point.
What if he doesn't make it out
before he gets taken over and we
run into him. He has the only
gun. Mine is at home. It does us
no good here.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
We can take the knife from David's
body.
                                                            
                       LUKE
That's all fine and dandy but do
you wanna fight a possessed
motherfucker with a gun when all
you got is a knife?
                                                            
                       ANDRE
It's not ideal but I'm willing to
take my chances.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Fair enough.
                                                            
Luke walks over to David's body and picks up the KNIFE.
Andre picks up David's BACKPACK.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
You never know, he might have
something useful in here.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Alright, let's go.
                                                            
The three start to make their way back towards the overpass
until they reach the hill that leads up to the bridge.
                                                            

79.

                       JULIE
Wait a minute guys! I got an
idea!
                                                            
                       ANDRE
What?
                                                            
                       JULIE
This is just a normal overpass,
right?
                                                            
                       LUKE
Yea, why?
                                                            
                       JULIE
Instead of climbing up there and
leaving the way we came, we can go
this way and exit onto the
freeway. We'd be on the freeway
but we'd be out of the woods.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
That's not a bad idea.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Yea, we can walk along the freeway
until we get to a main road.
There's hardly any cars on the
freeway this time of night so I
doubt many people would see us.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
Let's do it.
                                                            
They turn the other way to walk towards the freeway. It
doesn't take them long to get there but they are
disappointed when they get there to find a LARGE FENCE
blocking their exit from the woods to the freeway.
                                                            
                       LUKE
FUCK! What do we do now?
                                                            
                       ANDRE
The way I see it we got three
options. We could just climb over
the fence to the other side, we
could follow the fence until we
find a way out, or we can turn
back and just leave the way we
came.
                                                            
                       JULIE
I can't climb that fence.
                                                            

80.

                       LUKE
Well I guess that narrows our
choices down to two.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
We better make a decision fast.
                                                            
                       JULIE
I say we go back the way we came.
                                                            
                       LUKE
I agree. There's no telling how
long this fence goes on for.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
Back the way we came it is then.
                                                            
They turn around to leave and see Jeremy, one of the two
brothers who went missing in the 80's standing there.
                                                            
                       JEREMY
      (Crying)
My brother is hurt! I need to
find help! Can you help me?
                                                            
Andre looks at him PUZZLED.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
Where is your brother?
                                                            
                       JEREMY
I pulled him into a bush to hide
from that evil man! I think he
broke his ankle! Help us please!
                                                            
                       LUKE
What is your name?
                                                            
                       JEREMY
There's no time! Help me please!
The evil man is coming!
                                                            
Luke turns to Andre.
                                                            
                       LUKE
I don't like this.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
Me neither, but we can't just
leave him.
                                                            

81.

                       JULIE
Yea we can! Did you see what
happened with Taylor?
                                                            
                       JEREMY
Please don't leave me! I'm
scared! We have to go now! The
evil man is coming!
                                                            
                       ANDRE
No one is going to hurt you.
                                                            
                       JEREMY
YES HE IS! WE HAVE TO HURRY!
PLEASE!
                                                            
                       LUKE
I'm with Julie. I bet these are
the kids that went missing in the
80's. It's a trap.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
I can't just leave them. What if
it's not? We'd be leaving them to
die.
                                                            
                       LUKE
I don't trust it man.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
Let's just check it out.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Fine, but I don't like this one
bit.
                                                            
                       JEREMY
Thank you! Follow me!
                                                            
The three follow Jeremy deeper into the woods.
                                                            
                       JEREMY
We're almost there!
                                                            
Jeremy points to a bush in the near distance.
                                                            
                       JEREMY
That's where my brother is! Help
him please!
                                                            
Andre turns to Luke.
                                                            

82.

                       ANDRE
You two stay here. I'll go check
it out. I'll be right back.
                                                            
                       JULIE
Be careful DRE.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
I will. Just watch my back.
                                                            
                       LUKE
I got ya.
                                                            
Andre moves SLOWLY towards the bush. Jeremy stays behind
next to Luke and Julie.
                                                            
                       JULIE
What's your name?
                                                            
Jeremy does not respond. Andre moves closer to the bush.
                                                            
                       LUKE
How old are you?
                                                            
There is still no response. Andre is at the bush now and is
SLOWLY leaning towards it to take a look.
                                                            
                       LUKE
ANDRE! DON'T!
                                                            
Andre combs through the bushes but nobody is there.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
There's nobody here.
                                                            
                       JEREMY
He's here.
                                                            
                       ANDRE
Who's here? There's nobody here.
                                                            
                       JEREMY
The evil man is here.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Who's the evil man?
                                                            
                       JEREMY
The man with the hooded shirt. He
controls everything. He makes
people do whatever he wants.
                                                            

83.

                       ANDRE
What did he do to you?
                                                            
                       JEREMY
He's here! You have to go!
                                                            
                       JULIE
Who is he?
                                                            
Jeremy takes off into the woods and disappears into the
wilderness.
                                                            
                       LUKE
What the fuck are we dealing with?
                                                            
                       ANDRE
Clearly this thing is no ordinary
demon.
                                                            
                       LUKE
It's like some kind of sick
puppetmaster and we are the
puppets. He's controlling our
minds and making us do whatever he
desires.
                                                            
                       JULIE
So if we make it out of here are
we safe?
                                                            
                       LUKE
I don't know but I intend to find
out. Come on, let's keep moving.
                                                            
Luke and Julie start to move then notice that Andre is just
standing there with the BLANK STARE on his face.
                                                            
                       JULIE
Oh my God no!
                                                            
                       LUKE
DRE come back! Fight it!
                                                            
                       JULIE
FIGHT DRE!
                                                            
                       LUKE
FIGHT! FIGHT DAMNIT!
                                                            
Andre does not respond. He reaches into David's backpack
that he grabbed earlier and pulls out the bottle of Jack
Daniels.
                                                            

84.

                       JULIE
What the fuck is he doing?
                                                            
                       LUKE
I don't know. DRE! ANSWER ME!
                                                            
Andre opens the whiskey bottle and pours the entire bottle
all over himself.
                                                            
                       LUKE
DRE , WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU DOING?
                                                            
Andre reaches in his pocket and pulls out his CIGARETTE
LIGHTER.
                                                            
                       LUKE
OH HELL NO YOU DON'T!
                                                            
Luke ATTACKS Andre knocking the lighter from his hand. They
both fall to the ground.
                                                            
Andre QUICKLY jumps back to his feet before Luke. When Luke
gets to his feet he is met with a POWERFUL right hook to his
FACE, knocking him back down. The BLANK STARE never leaves
Andre's face.
                                                            
Andre CALMLY picks the lighter back up. Luke is too SHAKEN
to get back to his feet.
                                                            
                       JULIE
DRE! NO!
                                                            
Julie's plea goes unheard as Andre takes the lighter and
sets himself on fire. His clothes ablaze, he stands there
and BURNS, seemingly unaffected.
                                                            
Luke JUMPS up and KICKS Andre in the CHEST as hard as he
can, knocking him backwards and sending him TUMBLING down a
slope in the ground where he lands in a SHALLOW CREEK,
putting out the fire.
                                                            
Andre gets up badly burned but still alive. He LUNGES
himself face first into the creek. Luke runs down to help
him but can't manage to pull him above water.
                                                            
Luke and Andre WRESTLE in the creek. Luke cannot mangage to
pull Andre's head above water and after a brief STRUGGLE
Andre's body goes LIMP. Luke comes up out of the creek and
sits down on the ground, EXHAUSTED from the struggle.
                                                            
                       JULIE
BABY!
                                                            

85.

Julie runs to Luke's side. The gravity of the situation has
finally taken it's toll on Luke as he is visibly SHAKEN and
CRYING.
                                                            
                       LUKE
He...he was my best friend. He
was like a brother to me.
                                                            
                       JULIE
I know baby but you can't give up
now. He would want you to fight.
                                                            
Luke COLLAPSES in Julie's arms.
                                                            
                       LUKE
I can't lose you too.
                                                            
                       JULIE
You won't lose me. We have to
keep moving.
                                                            
                       LUKE
I know. Just give me one more
minute.
                                                            
                       JULIE
Ok.
                                                            
Luke stands there for a minute staring at his best friend's
LIFELESS body. The tears are POURING down his face.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Goodbye bro. I'll never forget
you.
                                                            
Luke turns back to Julie. A THUNDERCLAP is heard.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Let's get moving. I think It's
gonna rain.
                                                            
Luke and Julie start hiking again, moving as quickly as
possible. The rain starts to come, SOFTLY at first and
getting HEAVIER. The ground is becoming SOGGY and MUDDY,
making it hard to travel. Their shoes occasionaly get stuck
in the mud and they have to stop to fix them.
                                                            
                                         CUT TO:
                                                            
OVERPASS - CONTINUOUS
                                                            
We see Luke and Julie climbing back onto the street next to
the overpass and COLLAPSING on the pavement in EXHAUSTION.
                                                            

86.

                       LUKE
We're almost out of here baby.
Let's just rest for a moment.
                                                            
                       JULIE
Uh...baby...
                                                            
                       LUKE
What?
                                                            
Julie motions NERVOUSLY for Luke to look over at the bridge.
Jessica, the young woman from the 80's, is standing in the
middle of the overpass CRYING.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Hello...? Can we help you?
                                                            
She stands there crying and doesn't answer him.
                                                            
                       JULIE
Baby, I don't like this.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Me neither. I think we should
just get out of here.
                                                            
They QUICKLY get up and turn to walk down the street but
stop when they hear her speak.
                                                            
                       JESSICA
HELP ME!
                                                            
Luke and Julie turn around to face Jessica.
                                                            
                       JESSICA
Help me! Our car broke down and
my husband has gone crazy! You've
got to help me!
                                                            
Luke turns to Julie.
                                                            
                       LUKE
What do you think baby?
                                                            
                       JULIE
I still don't like it.
                                                            
                       LUKE
I don't either, but she said her
husband went crazy. Maybe it's
for real.
                                                            
Luke turns back towards Jessica.
                                                            

87.

                       LUKE
Where is your car? This road is
closed from 46 clear almost down
to Raccoon. What are you doing
back here?
                                                            
                       JESSICA
We were going back to our hotel
and our car broke down. We were
looking for help and my husband
went crazy and attacked me!
                                                            
Luke looks carefuly at her and notices that she shows no
signs of being attacked.
                                                            
                       LUKE
You don't look like you've been
hurt. Where is your car?
                                                            
Jessica doesn't answer. She starts SOBBING.
                                                            
                       JULIE
Baby, you don't think...?
                                                            
                       LUKE
Think what?
                                                            
                       JULIE
Do you remember the rest of...
                                                            
Jessica INTERRUPTS Julie.
                                                            
                       JESSICA
We broke down on the bridge.
                                                            
Luke and Julie's eyes WIDEN with FEAR.
                                                            
                       LUKE
We gotta get the fuck out of here
NOW!
                                                            
They QUICKLY turn around to leave and see Jason standing in
front of them with the BLANK STARE on his face.
                                                            
                       LUKE
JASON!
                                                            
Jason does not respond. He just stands there staring at
them with the BLANK STARE. Julie turns around and notices
that Jessica is gone.
                                                            
                       JULIE
Baby, she's gone.
                                                            

88.

Luke turns around to see that Jessica is gone. He QUICKLY
turns back towards Jason.
                                                            
                       LUKE
JASON! FUCKING ANSWER ME!
                                                            
Jason doesn't respond.
                                                            
                       JULIE
Baby can we please just GO?
                                                            
                       LUKE
Yea, let's go.
                                                            
They SLOWLY start to walk past Jason. He continues to stand
there as if he doesn't even notice they are there. They
don't notice the GUN in his hand at his side.
                                                            
Jason SLOWLY turns around and faces them. They don't notice
that he is now watching them.
                                                            
                       JULIE
Baby, don't you think we should
move faster?
                                                            
Luke turns around to see what Jason is doing and sees him
facing them with his arm outstreched, pointing the GUN at
them.
                                                            
                       LUKE
      (Calmly)
Jason, put down the gun.
                                                            
Jason just stands there. Julie turns around to face Jason
as well.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Julie, I want you to run. I want
you to turn and just run. Run
until you are out of the woods.
Don't stop for ANYTHING. No
matter what you see, just keep
going. Go. NOW!
                                                            
Julie SNAPS around and starts to run towards the trail. She
only gets a few feet when Jason pulls the trigger and FIRES
THREE SHOTS into her back. Julie DROPS to the floor
INSTANTLY.
                                                            
                       LUKE
NOOOOO!
                                                            

89.

Jason QUICKLY turns the gun to Luke and pulls the trigger
but the gun is EMPTY.
                                                            
Luke acts QUICKlY and ATTACKS Jason, sending the gun to the
floor. Jason takes a swing at Luke and misses. Luke
returns the attack and lands a HUGE BLOW to Jason's jaw,
however, the POWERFUL PUNCH does not seem to affect him.
Luke lands TWO more BLOWS before Jason DRIVES a HARD KNEE
into Luke's GUT then lands a POWERFUL UPPERCUT to his jaw,
sending him to the ground.
                                                            
Jason starts walking SLOWLY towards Julie who is still alive
but barely hanging on. Luke crawls towards the gun and
picks it up. Jason continues to SLOWLY walk towards Julie.
Luke struggles to his feet but manages to get up. Luke
takes off running towards Jason and when he gets to him,
lands a HUGE BLOW to the back of his head with the handle of
the pistol. Jason drops to the ground instantly.
                                                            
Luke notices a THICK stick laying on the side of the road.
He runs over and picks up the stick, then returns to Jason's
body and proceeds to SMASH the stick down on his head,
CAVING his skull in and eventually breaking the stick.
                                                            
Satisfied that Jason is dead, he drops his weapon to the
floor and runs to Julie's side.
                                                            
                       LUKE
BABY! ARE YOU OK?
                                                            
Julie is laying face down on the pavement. She is still
breathing but her breathing has become extremely LABORED and
she is bleeding PROFUSELY from her bullet wounds. Luke
turns her over onto her back.
                                                            
                       JULIE
I'm...I'm...I'm not going
to...make it...am I?
                                                            
                       LUKE
      (Crying)
YES YOU ARE! DON'T DIE ON ME!
PLEASE DON'T LEAVE ME!
                                                            
                       JULIE
I...I can't...I can't feel my
legs...
                                                            
                       LUKE
Just stay calm. I got you. I
won't let you go.
                                                            

90.

                       JULIE
I love you...
                                                            
                       LUKE
DON'T DO THAT! DON'T SAY THAT!
YOU'RE GOING TO BE OK! I SWEAR
IT!
                                                            
                       JULIE
No...No I'm not...
                                                            
                       LUKE
YES YOU ARE!
                                                            
                       JULIE
Luke...Before I die...I...I just
want you to know...
                                                            
Julie is now COUGHING BLOOD and it is becoming harder for
her to speak as she is NEARING DEATH by the second. Luke is
crying UNCONTROLLABLY and is having a hard time getting out
his words as well.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Know what?
                                                            
                       JULIE
I know....I...I know...
