BABYSITTER (A HORROR SHORT FILM)

INT. DONNY'S HOUSE - NIGHT
                                                            
The camera aims at the house phone which is ringing. It
switches to a shot of Jenny and Donny hiding in a closet.
Jenny, Age 16, holds a knife in one of her hands. She turns
to Donny, age 7.
                                                            
                       JENNY
It's okay Donny. We'll just let it
go to voicemail.
                                                            
                       DONNY
Jenny.
                                                            
                       JENNY
Yes Donny?
                                                            
                       DONNY
Are you gonna die tonight? Like
those other babysitters on the
news?
                                                            
She grabs Donny with one arm and strokes his hair.
                                                            
                       JENNY
No. And neither will you. Think of
it this way. The person is calling
from the other side of the phone.
He can't hurt you.
                                                            
                       DONNY
What about you?
                                                            
                       JENNY
No Donny.
                                                            
The ringing stops. A beep is heard then the phone letting
out a tone. The door opens in the background. Donny starts
crying.
                                                            
                       DONNY
He's here! He's gonna kill us!
                                                            
                       JENNY
Shut up! If you keep crying he'll
find us. Then you can be worried.
                                                            
There is total silence. Jenny turns to Donny.
                                                            

2.

                       JENNY
I'm gonna go check.
                                                            
                       DONNY
NO! HE'LL GET YOU!
                                                            
                       JENNY
Shhh!
                                                            
Donny quiets down.
                                                            
                       JENNY
I appreciate your concern, but
it's my duty to make sure you're
safe.
                                                            
                       DONNY
SO YOU'RE LEAVING ME ALONE?
                                                            
                       JENNY
If you stay here and stay quiet,
you'll be fine.
                                                            
He hugs her. She mtions him into a bundle of jackets. She
strokes his face and wipes his tears. She nods to him and
leaves the closet raising her knife up. Donny bundles
himself in a bunch of jackets.
                                                            
Jenny walks upstairs with the knife. She walks into a room
and sees the closet wide open. She cautiously walks towards
it and pushes it open. Cuts to Donny in the closet. He sees
someone outside the door and hears slight music. He covers
himself more. Then he pokes his head out more.
                                                            
                       DONNY
Jenny...
                                                            
The door creaks open. Cuts back to Jenny shifting through
the closet. She finds a bunch of photos.
                                                            
                       JENNY (To herself)
The dead babysitters.
                                                            
She sees another photo under a bag. She picks it up and lets
out a little shriek. The camera zooms in on the picture: a
picture of her. We hear Donny scream in the background.
Jenny gets up and runs out of the room. She grabs the phone
and dials 911. We next see her running downstairs, but she
is pulled into the closet by someone. The screen goes black
and all we hear in the background is a piercing scream.
                                                            
The scene fades back in with Donny and Jenny tied up in
chairs. Jenny looks over to Donny.
                                                            

3.

                       JENNY
Donny?
                                                            
Donny looks over at Jenny. She shrieks because his face is
all bloody and beaten.
                                                            
                       DONNY
Jenny?
                                                            
                       JENNY
Yes. Donny it's Jenny.
                                                            
                       DONNY
Why'd you lie?
                                                            
                       JENNY
What do you mean?
                                                            
                       DONNY
You told me I wouldn't die. You
told me that I wouldn't die.
                                                            
                       JENNY
You're not dead Donny... Not
yet...
                                                            
                       DONNY
Yet?
                                                            
                       JENNY
No I didn't mean it like that!
                                                            
                       DONNY
Stop......Lying......
                                                            
The killer walks in clapping slowly.
                                                            
                       KILLER
Nice going Jenny. Lying to 7 year
olds? Tsk Tsk.
                                                            
                       JENNY
You asshole! WHO ARE YOU!
                                                            
                       KILLER
Well if I told you, it wouldn't be
as fun! Now would it?
                                                            
The killer walks over to Donny. he teases him a bit.
                                                            
                       JENNY
Leave him alone.
                                                            

4.

                       KILLER
Typical hero. Underestimating the
villain. But I'm not shallow
enough to stab a 7 year old.
                                                            
The killer pulls out a knife and continuously stabs Donny.
Jenny screams and Donny cries. Now Donny is slumped in his
chair dead and Jenny is crying. The killer walks over to her
and lifts up her face.
                                                            
                       KILLER
Oops I lied.
                                                            
                       JENNY
You monster!
                                                            
The killer walks away from her.
                                                            
                       JENNY
Are you gonna-
                                                            
                       KILLER
Kill you? No. But we will meet
again soon. In the FUTURE, that
way it gives you anticipation,
makes you more scared. And because
the cops you called will be here
in 3, 2, 1.
                                                            
As the killer counts down, He takes off his mask so we see
the back of his head and when he gets to 1, blackout.

INT. DR. SCHINDLER'S OFFICE - DAY
                                                            
A "one year later" fades on screen as the beginning credits
begin to roll.
                                                            
The scene starts with Jenny sitting in a chair across from a
man wearing a lab coat.
                                                            
                       DR. SCHINDLER
So he just took off his mask?
                                                            
                       JENNY
Yes.
                                                            
                       DR. SCHINDLER
What did he look like?
                                                            

5.

                       JENNY
I don't know. He took off the mask
with his back facing to me.
                                                            
                       DR. SCHINDLER
And what did he say to you?
                                                            
                       JENNY
He told me that- that this
wouldn't be the last time we met.
                                                            
                       DR. SCHINDLER
Uh Huh. Did it ever occur to you
that this could've been planned
out Weeks, even months before it
happened to you?
                                                            
                       JENNY
All the time.
                                                            
                       DR. SCHINDLER
And you said you've been having
dreams?
                                                            
                       JENNY
yes.
                                                            
                       DR. SCHINDLER
Would it be too much to ask you to
describe these dreams.
                                                            
                       JENNY
I'd rather not.
                                                            
                       DR. SCHINDLER
I understand. Not too many people
are almost killed and want to be
bothered with stuff that's their
business.
                                                            
He scribbles in his notepad before looking up at Jenny
again.
                                                            
                       DR. SCHINDLER
So he'd been calling you weeks
prior to this?
                                                            
                       JENNY
Yes. He'd call me with the same
voice. Saying the same thing
constantly.
                                                            

6.

                       DR. SCHINDLER
Can you describe to me the first
call?
                                                            
                       JENNY
      (She hesitates for
       a minute.)
Sure.
                                                            
                                         FLASHBACK
                                                            
 
INT. DONNY'S HOUSE (1 YEAR EARLIER) - NIGHT
                                                            
The scene fades in from white with Jenny washing the dishes,
Donny playing on the floor. The phone rings. Jenny picks up
the phone.
                                                            
                       JENNY
Hello.
                                                            
                       CHUCK (On phone creepy)
Hello. What's your favorite Scary
Movie?
                                                            
                       JENNY (Kinda panicked)
Who is this?
                                                            
                       CHUCK (Normal)
It's me, Chuck.
                                                            
                       JENNY
Damn it, Chuck! You're such an
A-Hole!
                                                            
                       DONNY
A what, Jenny?
                                                            
                       JENNY
Nothing Donny! Just don't ever
repeat that!
                                                            
Donny covers his mouth.
                                                            
                       JENNY
Atta Boy.
      (She goes back to
       talking on the
       phone.)
Sorry. So what's up?
                                                            

7.

                       CHUCK
What? I can't just call to tell my
girlfriend that I love her?
                                                            
                       JENNY
Yeah about that....
                                                            
The shot changes to Donny looking out the window. A man
stands out there in the darkness. Donny steps back from the
window.
                                                            
                       DONNY
Jenny?
                                                            
                       JENNY (To chuck)
It just isn't working out.
                                                            
                       DONNY
JENNY!
                                                            
                       JENNY
Hang on, Donny.
                                                            
                       DONNY
JENNY!!
                                                            
                       JENNY (To chuck)
What did you just call me?!? Well
that just makes me glad we broke
up! Chuck you're such a-
                                                            
                       DONNY
JENNY!!!!!!
                                                            
                       JENNY
WHAT DONNY?!? WHAT?!?
                                                            
                       DONNY
There's someone standing outside.
                                                            
                       JENNY
What?
                                                            
                       DONNY
There's someone outside the
house...
                                                            
                       JENNY
Who is it?
                                                            
                       DONNY
I don't know.
                                                            

8.

                       JENNY
Chuck, is this you?
                                                            
There is a knock at the door.
                                                            
                       JENNY
Chuck? CHUCK?!?
                                                            
The phone rings and there is another knock at the door.
Jenny answers the phone.
                                                            
                       JENNY
Hello?
                                                            
                       KILLER
Hey babes. Are you alone?
Company's coming....
                                                            
                       JENNY
Chuck? Who is this?
                                                            
We hear a tone. There is another knock at the door. Jenny
picks up a knife from the counter. She walks slowly to the
door and Donny follows. The killer stands there and raises
his knife. Jenny falls back screaming. Chuck runs up to her
and helps her up.
                                                            
                       CHUCK
Jenny! What's wrong?
                                                            
                       JENNY
Chuck!
                                                            
                       CHUCK
Yeah I was gonna surprise you.
                                                            
He pulls out flowers.
                                                            
                       CHUCK
Surprise.
      (He drops the
       flowers.)
But I guess we're not together
anymore...
                                                            
She slaps him and picks up the phone.
                                                            
                       JENNY
THIS IS HOW YOU GET BACK AT ME?!?
WITH YOU STUPID 'I'M GONNA KILL
YOU' PRAN-
                                                            

9.

The phone rings. She looks at him. The three of them crowd
around the phone. It's on speaker.
                                                            
                       KILLER
Company's coming.
                                                            
The killer laughs all the way into the blackout.
                                                            
 
INT. DR. SCHINDLER'S OFFICE (PRESENT TIME) - AFTERNOON
                                                            
The scene fades back in with Jenny and The therapist in the
therapist office.
                                                            
                       JENNY
At first I thought it was Chuck,
but he was there when the killer
called again.
                                                            
                       DR. SCHINDLER
Maybe it WAS Chuck. Perhaps he got
a friend to call you while he was
there.
                                                            
                       JENNY
That's what I thought but-
                                                            
                       DR. SCHINDLER
Sorry. Session's up. We can
continue tomorrow.
                                                            
He pops a tape out of the tape recorder and stands up.
                                                            
                       DR. SCHINDLER
Are you taking anymore jobs
babysitting?
                                                            
                       JENNY
I applied for a new job, but I
don't know if I want to do it.
After what happened you know.
                                                            
                       DR. SCHINDLER
Then don't do it.
                                                            
                       JENNY
But, they're paying me five bucks
an hour and I really need the
money, with Christmas coming up
and-
                                                            
                       DR. SCHINDLER
Then take it.
                                                            

10.

                       JENNY
But-
                                                            
                       DR. SCHINDLER
Look, I'm not about to tell you
what to do, however, By now I
would just have forgot about it
and moved on to the FUTURE.
                                                            
She looks at him weirdly. He hands her a paper.
                                                            
                       DR. SCHINDLER
See you next week.
                                                            
 
EXT. BUS STOP - MOMENTS LATER
                                                            
Jenny walks to the bus stop. She looks to her right and sees
the killer. She backs up onto the pole and looks behind and
she sees the killer too. She screams as the two killers
begin walking to her. A hand grabs her shoulder and she
screams. When she turns to look at the person the hand
belongs to, she sees Chuck.
                                                            
                       JENNY
CHUCK!
                                                            
                       CHUCK
Hey Jenny.
                                                            
                       JENNY
What are you doing here?
                                                            
                       CHUCK
Jenny, we need to talk.
                                                            
                       JENNY
We have nothing to talk about.
                                                            
                       CHUCK
Yes we do.
                                                            
                       JENNY
Chuck. It's been a year. You need
to stop this- It's over.
                                                            
                       CHUCK
It's not about us!
      (Jenny looks to
       him.)
It's about you.
                                                            

11.

                       JENNY
Look. I'll give you 1 minute. 1
minute to tell me all that you
need to say.
                                                            
                       CHUCK
Jenny, Plea-
                                                            
                       JENNY
56 seconds.
                                                            
                       CHUCK
Jenny! Stop.
                                                            
                       JENNY
40 seconds.
                                                            
                       CHUCK
I can't explain this in 40
seconds.
                                                            
                       JENNY
Ok then. 10, 9, 8-
                                                            
                       CHUCK
JUST SHUT UP AND LET ME TALK!!
                                                            
                       JENNY
Time's up.
                                                            
Jenny starts walking away.
                                                            
                       CHUCK
Jenny, It's about the phone calls!
                                                            
Jenny stops.
                                                            
                       CHUCK
It's about your mother!
                                                            
She turns around and walks over to Chuck.
                                                            
                       JENNY
Listen Chuck! You don't know
ANYTHING about my mom!
                                                            
                       CHUCK
I know she was killed in a car
accident!
                                                            
                       JENNY
That's all anyone knows. That's
all they talk about. Listen up
Chuck, THIS IS MY LIFE! Not yours!
            (MORE)

12.

                       JENNY (cont'd)
SO WHY DON'T YOU JUST STOP ACTING
LIKE YOU-
                                                            
                       CHUCK
JENNY!
                                                            
Chuck grabs Jenny and tries to kiss her. Jenny socks him in
the gut. Chuck falls to the ground.
                                                            
                       JENNY
YOU DICK! I'M OVER YOU! MOVE ON!
                                                            
Jenny walks away.
                                                            
 
INT. ELI'S HOUSE - DAY
                                                            
Jenny walks up to a house. A woman answers.
                                                            
                       MRS. WEXNER
You must be Jenny.
                                                            
                       JENNY
That's me.
                                                            
                       MRS. WEXNER
Come in, Come in.
                                                            
They walk into the kitchen.
                                                            
                       MRS. WEXNER
So get him to bed at 9:30, 10 at
the latest. Help yourself to
anything in the fridge. And don't
make him mad.
                                                            
                       JENNY
Why? Will he turn into a big green
rage monster?
                                                            
                       MRS. WEXNER
Just don't.
                                                            
                       JENNY
Ok.
                                                            
Mrs. Wexner stands at the door.
                                                            
                       JENNY
So where is Eli?
                                                            

13.

                       MRS. WEXNER
He's upstairs in his room. Have
fun. be safe. you have my cell.
And yeah
                                                            
                       JENNY
ok. Bye Mrs. Wexner.
                                                            
She walks out the door. The shot changes to Jenny pushing
open Eli's door. Eli, 14, sits at his computer.
                                                            
                       JENNY
Hey Eli.
                                                            
He ignores her.
                                                            
                       JENNY
Eli? I'm Jenny.
                                                            
He ignores her again.
                                                            
                       JENNY
Earth to Eli.
                                                            
He finishes typing and moves around to face her.
                                                            
                       ELI
What's your I.Q.?
                                                            
                       JENNY
My what?
                                                            
                       ELI
Your I.Q.?
                                                            
                       JENNY
Oh, umm, I don't really know.
                                                            
                       ELI
My I.Q. is above 180.
                                                            
                       JENNY
Oh wow. That's-
                                                            
                       ELI

                       JENNY
That's genius but-
                                                            
                       ELI
God damn right it's genius.

                       JENNY
You must be a smart kid.
                                                            
                       ELI
No shit sherlock.
                                                            
                       JENNY
You don't need to get all cocky
with me!
                                                            
                       ELI
I don't need a babysitter!
                                                            
He shut the door in Jenny's face. Jenny opens his door.
                                                            
                       ELI
You wanna see something cool?
                                                            
                       JENNY
Uhhh, Sure.
                                                            
Eli Smiles. He gestures for Jenny to come and she does. He
pulls out a metal thing with wires and stuff.
                                                            
                       JENNY
Oh wow! What is it?
                                                            
                       ELI
It's a PHONE!
                                                            
                       JENNY
A phone?
                                                            
                       ELI
Yeah! My parents won't let me have
one, so I made my own.
                                                            
                       JENNY
So I guess that your parents don't
know about this.
                                                            
                       ELI
Nope.
                                                            
Everything goes quiet.
                                                            
                       ELI
And it's gonna stay like that
right?
                                                            
                       JENNY
Of course.
                                                            

15.

                       ELI
Perfect.
                                                            
He carefully puts the phone away and stands up.
                                                            
                       ELI
Wanna see something else?
                                                            
                       JENNY
ok.
                                                            
Eli holds out a box.
                                                            
                       ELI
Reach in.
                                                            
                       JENNY
No! What's inside?
                                                            
                       ELI
An object.
                                                            
                       JENNY
Are you smart assing me?
                                                            
                       ELI
So you don't trust me?
                                                            
                       JENNY
No, I do! I just don't feel
comfortable doing-
                                                            
                       ELI
You don't feel comfortable here?
                                                            
                       JENNY
Yeah I do, just-
                                                            
                       ELI
Then do it.
                                                            
Jenny slowly reaches her hand towards the box. Eli bumps up
the box and Jenny screams then continued to reach her hand
for the box. She gets her hand inside and screams.
                                                            
 
INT. DR. SCHINDLER'S OFFICE - DAY
                                                            
                       JENNY
A TARANTULA! THAT LITTLE DEVIL
MADE ME TOUCH A TARANTULA!
                                                            

16.

Jenny is once again sitting with the therapist in his
office.
                                                            
                       DR. SCHINDLER
But no phone call?
                                                            
                       JENNY
No. No phone call.
                                                            
                       DR. SCHINDLER
How many days has it been since
you started?
                                                            
                       JENNY
About 3.
                                                            
                       DR. SCHINDLER
And no phone call?
                                                            
                       JENNY
No phone call.
                                                            
                       DR. SCHINDLER
Can you describe the boy. Eli, was
it?
                                                            
                       JENNY
He's a genius! Not a good one, not
an evil one. He laughs maniacally
whenever he watches a horror movie
filled with blood and guts, he has
pet tarantulas, and he builds
fricking computers and cell
phones!
                                                            
                       DR. SCHINDLER
What about his parents? Do they-
                                                            
                       JENNY
Oh My God his mom acts like
nothing happens they just tell me
not to make him mad!
                                                            
                       DR. SCHINDLER
Do you make him mad?
                                                            
                       JENNY
I DON'T KNOW! I MAKE HIM
SOMETHING!
                                                            
                       DR. SCHINDLER
How old is he?
                                                            

17.

                       JENNY
14.
                                                            
                       DR. SCHINDLER
And he still needs a babysitter?
                                                            
                       JENNY
That kid needs friends!
                                                            
                       DR. SCHINDLER
And you can provide him that?
                                                            
                       JENNY
I can provide him of lots of
things.
                                                            
                       DR. SCHINDLER
Not friends?
                                                            
                       JENNY
He won't let me!
                                                            
                       DR. SCHINDLER
Maybe he just doesn't want you to.
                                                            
                       JENNY
WELL I DON"T KNOW WHAT HE WANTS!
HE DOESN'T TELL ME!
                                                            
                       DR. SCHINDLER
Jenny calm-
                                                            
                       JENNY
NO! NO I WILL NOT CALM DOWN! NOT
UNTIL HE IS DEAD! NOT UNTIL HIS
FUCKING HEAD IS ON A STICK! Not
until I can answer my phone and
not know that someone, somewhere,
is trying to kill me.
                                                            
She sits down in her chair. The therapist takes out the
tape.
                                                            
                       DR. SCHINDLER
Jenny, You're scared. Who wouldn't
be? But that doesn't mean you have
to resort to the death of someone.
                                                            
                       JENNY
I'm sorry.
                                                            

18.

                       DR. SCHINDLER
Besides, he killed a little kid.
They aren't letting him out of
prison anytime soon.
                                                            
 
INT. PRISON - CONTINUOUS
                                                            
The scene changes to a shot of a man wearing a black
sweatshirt. A police officer is on the wall, blood dripping
from his head and each finger where a thumbtack was placed.
The man goes to the desk and pulls out a mask. The killer's
mask. He puts it on and walks to the cop.
                                                            
                       KILLER
Now this wouldn't have happened if
you just let me have my call.
                                                            
The killer pulls out his phone and places it to his ear.
                                                            
                       KILLER
I'm out. Yes. So what did the man
plan for us next. Mmmmhmmm. ok. So
how is she? She just left the
office. Where's she babysitting?
OOOhh I know that place all too
well. Well I guess it's time for
some old friends to "reunite".
What will I do next? Well, I just
gotta make a phone call.
                                                            
 
INT. JENNY'S HOUSE - AFTERNOON
                                                            
Jenny throws her stuff down on the floor and jumps onto her
bed. The shot changes and we see her sitting at her desk
with a textbook open, doing her homework. The phone rings
and she just stares at it. She picks up the phone.
                                                            
                       JENNY
Hel- Hello?
                                                            
                       ELI (Creppily on the phone)

babysitting me in a little.
                                                            
                       JENNY
Really?
                                                            
She looks at her phone.
                                                            
                       JENNY
Awww crud! Ok I'll be there in-

He hangs up.
                                                            
                       JENNY

The phone rings again.
                                                            
                       JENNY
Hello?
                                                            

20.

                       CHUCK

                       JENNY

She hangs up again.
                                                            
 
INT. ELI'S HOUSE - NIGHT
                                                            
Jenny opens Eli's door. He is watching a bloody movie. There
is screaming and stuff on the tv. He turns to look at Jenny.
                                                            
                       JENNY

Well at least you answered.
                                                            
                       ELI
Lucky you.
                                                            
A man gets caught and decapitated and Eli just laughs
maniacally. He turns back to Jenny.
                                                            
                       ELI
What do you want? A Cookie?
                                                            
                       JENNY

light in.
                                                            
                                         AT A PAY PHONE
                                                            
The killer slides a quarter into the machine and is on the
phone.
                                                            
She exits the room and sits down on the living room couch.
Her cell phone rings.
                                                            
                                         JENNY
                                                            
                       JENNY
Hello?

He calms down.
                                                            
                       KILLER
So how you been?
                                                            
                                         JENNY
                                                            
                       JENNY
      (With a look of
       absolute horror)
You were in jail.
                                                            
                                         KILLER

                                         JENNY
                                                            
Jenny looks out the window.
                                                            
                                         KILLER
                                                            
                       KILLER

He slams the phone back onto the reciever.
                                                            
                       KILLER
FUCK!
                                                            
                                         JENNY
                                                            
Jenny stared forward blankly and screamed when Eli came up
behind her.
                                                            
                       JENNY
I thought you were watching a
movie!
                                                            
                       ELI
I was, I just hate the endings of
horror movies.
                                                            
                       JENNY
Why?
                                                            
                       ELI
I don't like it when the kill the
bad guy. So I turned it off.
                                                            
Jenny stared at Eli, who is laughing maniacally, holding the
phone in her hand. Eli stopped laughing and He turned to
Jenny.
                                                            
                       JENNY
      (She shakes her
       head.)
It's bed time.
                                                            
                       ELI

READ?PLEASE!
                                                            
                       JENNY
Read what?
                                                            
Eli grabs a book off of the counter and runs it back to
Jenny.
                                                            
                       JENNY
This is an R.L. Stine book.
                                                            
                       ELI
And?
                                                            
                       JENNY
Whatever you little creep.
                                                            

23.

As Jenny walks away, Eli begins reading.
                                                            
                       ELI
"Hey Babe, Are you alone?" says
the mysterious man on the phone,
      (Jenny freezes.)
"Company's coming...."
                                                            
Jenny runs back to him.
                                                            
                       JENNY
Wait! What'd you just say!
                                                            
                       ELI

                       JENNY
What book are you reading?
                                                            
                       ELI
It's called "The Babysitter." It's
about a babysitter who babysits
this kid named Donny and she keeps
getting phone calls from-
      (The phone rings.)
A mysterious.......man.......on
the phone.........
                                                            
Both of them stare at the ringing phone and the scene fades
to black.
                                                            
 
INT. DR. SCHINDLER'S OFFICE - AFTERNOON

                       DR. SCHINDLER
JENNY!!
                                                            
Jenny Falls into her seat.
                                                            

24.

                       DR. SCHINDLER
Now can you tell me about the
call?
                                                            
                       JENNY
Are you even listening to a word
I'm saying?
                                                            
                       DR. SCHINDLER
JENNY!
                                                            
                       JENNY
NO WONDER YOU NEED A TAPE
RECORDER! YOU PROBABLY DON'T EVEN

                       DR. SCHINDLER

                       JENNY
I CAN'T BELIEVE YOUR ACTING LIKE

Jenny sits down in her chair.
                                                            
                       DR. SCHINDLER
Jenny, I'm sorry.
                                                            
                       JENNY
No. No. That was on me.
                                                            
                       DR. SCHINDLER
So will you cooperate now?
                                                            
                       JENNY
Yeah. Sorry.
                                                            

25.

                       DR. SCHINDLER
Now explain to me the phone call.
                                                            
                       JENNY
Well. I answered the phone and
thought it was Chuck or Eli
messing with me. Then I knew who
it was. A voice that I hadn't
heard for one year. The voice of a
ghost. A voice that visits me
everyday in my dreams. The voice
that rang in my head saying "Hey
babe. I'm back."
                                                            
Dr. Schindler writes it down in his notepad.
                                                            
                       DR. SCHINDLER
Have you informed your mother
about this?
                                                            
                       JENNY
My mother, ummm passed away.
                                                            
                       DR. SCHINDLER
Well I'm sorry to hear that. How
about your father.
                                                            
                       JENNY
I grew up without him. I don't
know he sort of left on day. The
natural sob story of every
runaway. I live with my aunt.
                                                            
                       DR. SCHINDLER
Listen. Would it be too much to
ask for you to, ummm, recite your
mom's death?
                                                            
                       JENNY
I- I can't really remember that
well. I can't remember much
before Seventh Grade.
                                                            
                       DR. SCHINDLER
Can you do as best as you can?
                                                            
                       JENNY
I'll try.
                                                            
Dr. Schindler leans back in his chair.
                                                            
                       DR. SCHINDLER
Go on.
                                                            

26.

                       JENNY
It started-
                                                            
 
INT. JENNY'S MOM'S CAR (4 YEARS EARLIER) - DAY
                                                            
Jenny and her mom are in the car. Jenny has her arms
crossed.
                                                            
                       JENNY
I hate you.
                                                            
Jenny's mom ignores her.
                                                            
                       JENNY
Are you listening?
                                                            
Jenny's mom still ignores her.
                                                            
                       JENNY
I- HAAAAATTE- YOUUUU!
                                                            
Ugh you don't even care.
                                                            
                       JENNY'S MOM
Yes i do. I do and you know it.
                                                            
                       JENNY
Then show me you do! Tell me about
him! I want to learn more about my
dad! Why did he leave? What was
the point? Did he even want me?
                                                            
                       JENNY'S MOM
Your father made some bad
decisions, just drop it.
                                                            
Jenny looks out the window.
                                                            
                       JENNY
Where are we going?
                                                            
                       JENNY'S MOM
I'm dropping you off at your Aunt
Hudgen's house. You'll stay there
for a while.
                                                            
                       JENNY
No! I don't wanna!
                                                            
                       JENNY'S MOM
I DON'T CARE!
                                                            

27.

                       JENNY
EXACTLY! YOU DON'T CARE! YOU NEVER
CARED!
                                                            
She turns around to look at Jenny.
                                                            
                       JENNY'S MOM
Stop. STOP IT! You need to take it
down a notch.
                                                            
                       JENNY
MOM LOOKOUT!
                                                            
The car flips over. Shot of Jenny's mom screaming. Blackout.
The scene fades back in with Jenny at the grave of her
Mother. She kneels in front of it, crying.
                                                            
                       JENNY
I'm sorry. I'm SOOO sorry!
                                                            
She lays down next to the grave and cuddles it.
                                                            
                                         PRESENT TIME
                                                            
Dr. Schindler pops out the tape.
                                                            
                       DR. SCHINDLER
I'll see you next week.
                                                            
 
EXT. STREET SIDEWALK - MOMENTS LATER
                                                            
Jenny is walking down the sidewalk. Chuck grabs her and
pushes her on the ground. He climbs on top of her.
                                                            
                       JENNY
CHUCK!
                                                            
                       CHUCK
YOU SEE WHAT YOU DO TO ME! YOU
REMEMBER THAT NIGHT? THAT NIGHT
WHEN I COULD'VE CUT YOUR THROAT!
ALL THE PHONE CALLS! ALL THAT
STUFF TO GET MY REVEVNGE! HOW'S
DONNY? HUH! HUH YOU- YOU BITCH!
                                                            
Chuck falls to the ground crying.
                                                            
                       JENNY
Chuck..... What are you talking
about?
                                                            

28.

                       CHUCK
RUN! RUN YOU STUPID GIRL! RUN!
THEY'RE GONNA FIND YOU! HE'S GONNA
FIND YOU! RUN!
                                                            
                       JENNY
CHUCK!
                                                            
                       CHUCK
RUN! I'M DEAD! I'VE GOT NOTHING TO
LIVE FOR! THEY'RE GONNA KILL ME
AND THEN YOU! RUN!!
                                                            
She runs back up the sidewalk and gets back into the office.
The Therapist is at his desk.
                                                            
                       JENNY
DR. SCHINDLER!
                                                            
                       DR. SCHINDLER
Jenny. What's wrong?
                                                            
                       JENNY
Chuck! Chuck!
                                                            
                       DR. SCHINDLER
What about him?
                                                            
                                         SIDEWALK
                                                            
                       JENNY (V.o.)
I don't know what's wrong with
him....
                                                            
                       DR. SCHINDLER (V.O.)
It's you. You created a
monster....
                                                            
Jenny and Dr. Powers run down the hill and pick up Chuck.
They drag him up the hill.
                                                            
 
INT. DR. SCHINDLER'S OFFICE - MOMENTS LATER
                                                            
Dr. Schindler sits across from Chuck and Jenny.
                                                            
                       DR. SCHINDLER
Are you ok now Chuck?
                                                            
He doesn't answer. Jenny nudges him.
                                                            
                       JENNY
Chuck.
                                                            

29.

Chuck glares at Dr. Schindler.
                                                            
                       CHUCK
I'm fine. Peachy.
                                                            
Dr. Schindler glares back.
                                                            
                       DR. SCHINDLER
Excellent.
                                                            
                       CHUCK
So you two know each other?
                                                            
                       JENNY
Yes.
                                                            
                       DR. SCHINDLER
I'm her therapist.
                                                            
                       JENNY
Yeah, he's been helping me by
giving me advice about this whole
killer thing.
                                                            
                       CHUCK
I could've done that for you.
                                                            
                       DR. SCHINDLER
Who has the license here?
                                                            
                       CHUCK
Clearly no one you fraud!
                                                            
Dr. Schindler stands up quickly. Chuck follows.
                                                            
                       DR. SCHINDLER
Let's see who's the fraud by the
end of this.
                                                            
                       CHUCK
Oh we will.
                                                            
                       JENNY
GUYS, GUYS!
                                                            
They look at her.
                                                            
                       JENNY
Let's all try to get along here.
                                                            
Dr. Schindler smiles and stretches out his hand.
                                                            

30.

                       DR. SCHINDLER
But of course. Chuck.
                                                            
Chuck ignores the gesture and sits down. Dr. Schneider
retracts his hand and sits down as well. He turns to Jenny,
smiling.
                                                            
                       DR. SCHINDLER
So why don't you tell Mr. Chuck
how you came to find me.
                                                            
                       JENNY
Ummm sure.
      (Chuck looks at
       her with concern.)
After Donny's funeral, Aunt Hudgen
told me that I should start
looking for a therapist. I looked
online for one that can suit me. I
pretty much lost hope when a paper
flew up onto my doorstep. A paper
for Dr. Schneider. That was the
same day that you and I first met,
Chuck.
                                                            
                       DR. SCHINDLER
What a coincidence! Now,
      (He stands up)
jenny, you're excused, and Chuck,
i'd like to talk for a minute or
two. Ok.
                                                            
                       JENNY
Chuck?
                                                            
                       DR. SCHINDLER
He'll be fine.
                                                            
Chuck runs up to Jenny and whispers in her ear.
                                                            
                       CHUCK
Run you stupid girl, run....
                                                            
He kisses her cheek and Jenny walks out the door.
                                                            
 
INT. ELI'S HOUSE - EVENING
                                                            
Jenny slams her keys on a table. She looks up the stairs.
                                                            
                       JENNY
Eli?
                                                            

31.

No answer. There's a scream.
                                                            
                       JENNY
ELI!
                                                            
She runs up the stairs. When she goes into Eli's room, there
is clothes and stuff everywhere and a huge crack on the
computer screen. On the bed, is a lump. a hand hangs out
from under the covers along with a thing of fake blood.
Jenny screams. Eli comes in.
                                                            
                       ELI
What's that?
                                                            
                       JENNY
Well it isn't you.
                                                            
Eli runs over to the body.
                                                            
                       JENNY
ELI!
                                                            
Eli uncovers the body and Jenny screams. Chuck falls out of
the bed. Dead. Jenny hangs over Chuck crying. Eli walks over
to her.
                                                            
                       ELI
You knew him huh.
                                                            
                       JENNY
Ex.
                                                            
                       ELI
I'm sorry.
                                                            
                       JENNY
Don't be. He was an idiot, But a
smart idiot.
                                                            
She flips him over and sees a note. When Eli turns away, she
puts the note in her pocket. Eli looks back at her.
                                                            
                       ELI
Is it a bad time to say I need
breakfast?
                                                            
 
INT. DR. SCHINDLER'S OFFICE - AFTERNOON
                                                            
                       DR. SCHINDLER
How's Chuck?
                                                            

32.

                       JENNY
Dead.
                                                            
                       DR. SCHINDLER
Well I'm sorry to hear that. He
was sort of a, what's the word?
                                                            
                       JENNY
Dick?
                                                            
                       DR. SCHINDLER
A dick last time we met. But I
don't think he ever deserved to
die.
                                                            
                       JENNY
Dr. Schindler. I'm ready.
                                                            
                       DR. SCHINDLER
Ready for what?
                                                            
                       JENNY
To tell you about my dreams.
                                                            
Dr. Schindler turns off the tape recorder.
                                                            
                       DR. SCHINDLER
I'm listening.
                                                            
                                         DREAM MONTAGE
                                                            
The dreams scene opens with Jenny kneeling in a room.
                                                            
                       JENNY
Hello?
                                                            
A phone is Ringing in the voiceover. Jenny crumples in fear.
The ringing stops. Eli stands behind her.
                                                            
                       JENNY
Eli?
                                                            
                       ELI
You're an idiot Jenny......... An
IDIOT!
                                                            
Chuck appears in front of her.
                                                            
                       CHUCK
Jenny!
                                                            
                       JENNY
Chuck! You're ali-
                                                            

33.

The killer comes up behind Chuck.
                                                            
                       JENNY
CHUCK LOOKOUT!
                                                            
The killer stabs Chuck, then leaves.
                                                            
                       JENNY
CHUCK!
                                                            
                       CHUCK
Run YOU STUPID GIRL! RUN!
                                                            
She struggles in her spot.
                                                            
                       JENNY
I CAN'T MOVE!
                                                            
Donny appears.
                                                            
                       DONNY
Why did you lie to me, Jenny?
                                                            
                       JENNY
Donny.
                                                            
Dr. Schindler appears.
                                                            
                       DR. SCHINDLER
We all care about you.
                                                            
                       JENNY
Dr. Schindler, I-
                                                            
                       DONNY
You lied to me! You said you'd
protect me! YOU SAID I WOULDN'T
DIE!
                                                            
                       JENNY
Donny! I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT TO DO!
I-
                                                            
Eli begins laughing maniacally.
                                                            
                       JENNY
Eli, SHUT UP!
                                                            
Mrs. Wexner walks in.
                                                            
                       MRS. WEXNER
Don't talk to my son like that!
                                                            

34.

                       JENNY
Mrs. Wexner?
                                                            
                       ELI
I've got my mom. Where's yours?
                                                            
                       DONNY
Where's your mom?
                                                            
                       DR. SCHINDLER
Where's your mom?
                                                            
                       ELI
Where's your mom?
                                                            
                       MRS. WEXNER
Where's your mom?
                                                            
A Rhythm plays out and doesn't stop until after the next
line.
                                                            
                       JENNY
DEAD OK! SHE'S DEAD! SHE WAS
KILLED IN A CAR ACCIDENT!
                                                            
Jenny's mom walks in.
                                                            
                       JENNY'S MOM
Was it really an accident?
                                                            
                       JENNY
Mom....
                                                            
Jenny runs to hug her mom but finds herself hugging the
killer. He pushes her into a chair as the crowd of people
crowd around her. The scene fades out.
                                                            
                                         THERAPIST OFFICE
                                                            
The scene fades back in on Jenny, Now crying. Doctor
Schindler remains emotionless.
                                                            
                       DR. SCHINDLER
Where is you mom, Jenny?
                                                            
                       JENNY
Dead. I told you.
                                                            
                       DR. SCHINDLER
You say she says the car accident
wasn't- wasn't an accident in the
dream?
                                                            

35.

He puts his hands into a fist. The table shakes.
                                                            
                       JENNY
Of course it was an accident! The
car hit something when she was
looking back at me and the car
flipped over.
                                                            
                       DR. SCHINDLER
I listened to your story over and
over. How your mother died.
      (he stands up and
       walks around her.)
If the car was smashed, totaled as
some kids these days might say,
then How is it that you survived
if you were in the car?
                                                            
                       JENNY
I don't know, I guess it was a
miracle-
                                                            
                       DR. SCHINDLER
NO! NO IT WASN'T!
                                                            
                       JENNY
Dr. Schindler.
                                                            
                       DR. SCHINDLER
SHE WAS KILLED! IT WAS NO
ACCIDENT!
                                                            
                       JENNY
DOCTOR I-
                                                            
                       DR. SCHINDLER
YOU SHUT UP AND LISTEN TO ME RIGHT
FUCKING NOW BECAUSE NOT REPEATING
IT AGAIN AND WE DON'T HAVE A
STUPID ASS TAPE RECORDER! LOOK
BACK AND REMEMBER! REMEMBER
EVERYTHING! REMEMBER THE SHARD OF
GLASS IN YOUR HAND! THE SHARD OF
GLASS, COVERED IN THE BLOOD OF THE
VICTIM, YOUR MOTHER! YOU JUMPED
OUT OF THE CAR! ABANDONED HER!
LEFT HER TO DIE AND SHE DID! BUT
YOU BUMPED YOUR LITTLE HEAD AND
LOST YOUR MEMORY! BOO HOO! THEN
BELOVED AUNT HUDGEN COMES IN TO
SAVE THE DAY AND DOESN'T GRANT YOU
CUSTODY TO ME! THE MAN WHO SHOULD
BE HOLDING YOU RIGHT NOW. I HAD TO
SET UP A FAKE THERAPY SESSION AND
            (MORE)

36.

                       DR. SCHINDLER (cont'd)
FOR WHAT! JUST TO GET BACK WHAT'S
MINE!
      (Jenny looks at
       her with concern.)
My daughter.
                                                            
As Dr. Schindler is talking, He grabs Jenny's head. A
flashback of Jenny holding a shard of glass and then of her
stabbing her mother. A shot of Jenny jumping out of the car
and the car flipping over again. Then it goes back to
present time.
                                                            
                       JENNY
Dr. Schindler.
                                                            
                       DR. SCHINDLER
No...
      (He walks to her.)
Daddy Schindler.
                                                            
He reaches in for a hug but misses.
                                                            
                       JENNY
You're my dad.....
                                                            
                       DR. SCHINDLER
Yes.
                                                            
They walk in circles continuously.
                                                            
                       JENNY
You're the one giving me the phone
calls...
                                                            
                       DR. SCHINDLER
Yes.
                                                            
                       JENNY
I..... I killed my mother!
                                                            
                       DR. SCHINDLER
yes
                                                            
                       JENNY
You're trying to kill me?
                                                            
                       JENNY
No sweetie, Noo... But YES, YES,
YES!!
                                                            
He lunges at her but misses.
                                                            

37.

                       DR. SCHINDLER
I'm making your choice now. Life
or Death?
                                                            
Jenny Runs out of the door.
                                                            
                       DR. SCHINDLER
Death it is.
                                                            
He runs after her.
                                                            
 
INT. ELI'S HOUSE - MOMENTS LATER
                                                            
Jenny runs into the house and goes to Eli's room. There are
voices coming from there.
                                                            
                       ELI
Hey babes. Are you Alone?
Company's coming.
                                                            
She bursts through the door. Eli is sitting there with his
homemade phone.
                                                            
                       JENNY
What was that?
                                                            
                       ELI
What?
                                                            
                       JENNY
the voice.
                                                            
                       ELI
It's my phone, I can do whatever I
want!
                                                            
                       JENNY
So you call people and tell them
creepy things?
                                                            
                       ELI
So?
                                                            
The phone rings. Eli is about to answer it, but Jenny throws
it and it smashes.
                                                            
                       ELI
What the hell?
                                                            
                       JENNY
You don't want to answer that.

38.

                       ELI
HOW DARE YOU COME INTO MY ROOM AND
BREAK MY STUFF! I'M GONNA TELL MY-
                                                            
Jenny stops him.
                                                            
                       JENNY
Listen. Something big is about to
happen. I need you to take out all
the phone systems and close all
the windows. I'll lock the doors.
                                                            
                       ELI
What's gonna happen?
                                                            
                       JENNY
I can't explain it to you right
now. Just go. Trust me.
                                                            
Eli nods and runs to the door but stops in the doorway.
                                                            
                       ELI
Are we gonna die?
                                                            
A flashback of Donny in the chair tied up.
                                                            
                       DONNY
Why'd you lie to me? You said I
wouldn't die.
                                                            
Present time.
                                                            
                       ELI
No promises. Now GO!
                                                            
 
INT. ELI'S HOUSE - CONTINUOUS
                                                            
Jenny locks the doors and runs down the hall.
                                                            
                       JENNY
Ok Eli. You done?
                                                            
                       ELI
Yeah. Well sort of, it's just-
                                                            
                       JENNY
I told you to unplug it.
                                                            
                       ELI
I needed to use my computer to
look at something.
                                                            

39.

                       JENNY
What?
                                                            
                       ELI
Well, you're therapist-
                                                            
                       JENNY
How do you know I have a
therapist?
                                                            
                       ELI
Duh.
                                                            
He points to himself.
                                                            
                       ELI
Super genius.
                                                            
                       JENNY
Go on.
                                                            
                       ELI
Dr. Schindler doesn't exist.
                                                            
                       JENNY
What do you mean?
                                                            
                       ELI
There no such person as a Cal
Schneider.
                                                            
                       JENNY
I kinda realized that after he had
a nervous breakdown at our last
session.
                                                            
                       ELI
But there's something else. I'm-
                                                            
There's a knock at the door. Jenny looks at Eli and then
grabs a knife from her drawer. They walk slowly to the door
but Eli stops halfway.
                                                            
                       ELI
No. No. I've seen horror movies!
DON'T ANSWER THE DOOR!
                                                            
                       JENNY
Eli.
                                                            
                       ELI
They'll kill you!
                                                            

40.

                       JENNY
Eli.
                                                            
                       ELI
They're gonna get you!
                                                            
                       JENNY
Eli.
                                                            
                       ELI
THEY are here!
                                                            
A really loud knock at the door. The lights go out.
                                                            
                       JENNY
Eli?
                                                            
                       ELI
This isn't me. It's THEM!
                                                            
                       JENNY
Them? They? Who?
                                                            
                       ELI
All of us! All of us helping the
killer!
                                                            
She backs away as as Eli falls to the ground crying.
                                                            
                       JENNY
Us?
                                                            
Eli is still crying.
                                                            
                       JENNY
Eli?
                                                            
His crying turns into maniacal laughing. Jenny bumps into
someone (Chuck not dead). He whispers in her ear.
                                                            
                       CHUCK
Run.
                                                            
Jenny takes off running. Chuck opens the door and Mrs.
Wexner comes in.
                                                            
                       MRS. WEXNER
Let's kill that bitch.
                                                            
She pulls a mask over her head. So does Chuck and Eli. Chuck
helps Eli up.
                                                            

41.

                       CHUCK
You did good Eli. You did good.
                                                            
Jenny locks herself in her closet, knife at hand. We hear
footsteps outside the door. They walk away. Jenny breathes
deeply and looks through the cracks seeing if they're still
out there. A knife goes through the cracks and narrowly
misses her eye. She grabs the handle as the killers are
trying to get in. Finally the killers stopped and walked
away. Jenny took a deep breath and ran out of thew closet.
She finds herself in the kitchen. Automatically, there's a
ringing of a phone in the background. A voice fades in in a
ghastly echo.
                                                            
                       DONNY (Echo)
Why'd you lie to me.... You said
They wouldn't kill me..... YOU
SAID I WOULDN'T DIE!!!!!
                                                            
                       JENNY
DONNY I'M SORRY! THERE ISN'T A
MORNING I DON'T WAKE UP AND THINK
THAT YOUR DEATH IS ALL MY FAULT!!
                                                            
                       DONNY (ECHO.)
Death........
                                                            
                       JENNY
YES DONNY! YOUR DEATH!
                                                            
                       DONNY (Echo)
Death?
                                                            
                       JENNY
YOU DIED! YOU DIED AND IT'S ALL MY
FAULT! YOU ARE DE-
                                                            
Donny walks out in front of her.
                                                            
                       JENNY
Dead...
                                                            
                       DONNY
Not quite....
                                                            
5 more people walk out and group behind Donny, all wearing
masks and costumes.
                                                            
                       JENNY
What is this?
                                                            

42.

                       KILLER
We all have something against
you... All of us.
                                                            
                       MRS. WEXNER
A plan designed long ago.
                                                            
                       DR. SCHINDLER
A plan to kill you.
                                                            
                       ELI
To murder you.
                                                            
                       CHUCK
To rip you. Break you.
                                                            
                       DONNY
For parts we had to play.
                                                            
                       CHUCK
The Horrible Ex.
                                                            
                       DR. SCHINDLER
The therapist who "cares."
                                                            
                       ELI
The super genius.
                                                            
                       MRS. WEXNER
And his mom.
                                                            
                       KILLER
And of course..... The Killer
                                                            
Everyone, except Jenny of course, claps.
                                                            
                       KILLER
Now guys, Let's give it up for the
real star of the show,
      (He gestures to
       Jenny)
The Babysitter.
                                                            
The group claps and hollers loudly.
                                                            
                       JENNY
WHAT KIND OF SICK GAME IS THIS???
                                                            
                       KILLER
A very fun game. Don't you guys
agree?
                                                            
Everyone nods.
                                                            

43.

                       KILLER
Thanks for playing.
                                                            
                       JENNY
What do you guys have on me?
                                                            
Dr. Schindler, Eli, and Mrs. Wexner takes off their masks.
                                                            
                       DR. SCHINDLER
Your mother was killed in a car
accident and it's all your fault.
But you can't remember doing that
or who we are.
                                                            
                       JENNY
SHE DIED IN A CAR ACCIDENT!
                                                            
                       MRS. WEXNER
That you caused!
                                                            
                       JENNY
Then why can't I remember?
                                                            
                       MRS. WEXNER
Of me, Your Aunt Wilma!
                                                            
                       ELI
Of me.
                                                            
                       DONNY
And me.
                                                            
                       JENNY
Your brothers.
                                                            
                       DR. SCHINDLER
And of me..... Your father!
                                                            
                       JENNY
No... NO! This can't be! Why are

                       KILLER
NO MORE QUESTIONS!! I WAITED 1
YEAR IN JAIL TO FINISH WHAT WAS
STARTED! AND I INTEND ON ENDING
PRETTY SOON!
                                                            
All the people back up. The killer walks up to Jenny.
                                                            
                       KILLER
I went to jail and waited for a
year to kill you. To slide my
blade into every inch of your

                       KILLER (cont'd)
pretty body and bring it out just
as slowly as it went in. Granted
you were the hardest babysitter we
had to kill.... But you are the
most fun.
                                                            
He walks back into the little circle.
                                                            
                       KILLER
I really don't have a reason to
kill you. You seemed alone and I
brought company just like I
promised.
                                                            
He gestures to Eli.
                                                            
                       KILLER
Go ahead boy.
                                                            
Dr. Schindler and Mrs. Wexner hold her down as Eli walks up
to her. he slashes her on her arm and she screams in pain.
blood trickles down her arm. Then Donny comes up and does
the same. Chuck walks up and stabs one of her legs. Then the
killer slowly walks up and stabs the blade right into her
shoulder.
                                                            
                       KILLER
It hurts huh! 1 years worth of
pain,
      (he yanks the
       knife out as
       Jenny screams)
Worth it.
                                                            
He stands up and pulls out a big, curved, sharp blade.
                                                            
                       KILLER
Time to die!
                                                            
                       JENNY
WAIT!
                                                            
                       KILLER
I DID WAIT! I WAITED ONE YEAR IN A
PRISON CELL AND NOW I'M DONE
WAITING!
                                                            
                       JENNY
Who are you?
                                                            

45.

                       KILLER
I'M YOUR WORST ENEMY! YOUR MOST
HORRIFYING NIGHTMARE! I AM-
                                                            
Jenny kicks him and escapes from the people's clutches. She
grabs a knife and plunges it into Dr. Schindler's rib cage
and one of Mrs. Wexner's breasts. She grabs the jagged blade
from the killer and slices off chuck's hand. Eli and Donny
start running. the killer grabs another knife and repeatedly
stabs Jenny's arm. jenny Screams in pain and hits him with
the butt of the knife. She runs to the bathroom crying and
wraps tissue around her arm. The killer bursts through the
door. He lunges at Jenny but misses and lands in her bath
tub. The killer stands up from it.
                                                            
                       KILLER
GIVE IT UP YOU STUPID GIRL! GIVE
IT UP AND JUST DIE!
                                                            
He tries getting out of the bathtub, but Jenny kicks him
back in, takes his jagged blade and stabs him repeatedly.
the water turns red with blood. The killer thrashes around
but stops. Before she actually kills him, he says something.
                                                            
                       KILLER
I'll be seeing you soon.
                                                            
                       JENNY
Yeah in hell!
                                                            
She gives him one last stab and he's dead. She stares at the
dead body in the bathtub of blood. She slowly reaches for
his face to remove his mask. She is about to pull it off and
the camera changed its angle so we can't see who it is. She
gasps and drops the mask to the floor. Blackout.
                                                            
 
INT. JENNY'S SISTER'S HOUSE - EVENING
                                                            
"Two weeks later." The scene fades in on a girl babysitting
a little girl. Jenny sits on the couch.
                                                            
                       JENNY
Thanks for letting me stay.
                                                            
                       ALICE
What are sisters for?
                                                            
The phone rings. The babysitter goes to pick it up.
                                                            
                       ALICE
Hello?
                                                            

46.

Jenny looks and walks over to her.
                                                            
                       ALICE
What? Who is this?
                                                            
She hands the phone to Jenny.
                                                            
                       ALICE
It's for you.
                                                            
                       ELI (on the phone)
Hey babe, are you alone?
                                                            
                       DONNY (on the phone)
Company's coming....
                                                            
The camera pans down from her face as we hear the boys
laughing maniacally in the back ground. She slams the phone
back on the receiver and we see the little girl with one of
the killer costumes holding a knife.
                                                            
CUE MUSIC

From Ethan Nepper Date 3/2/2015 ****
This was a very suspenseful and scary screenplay, I only read horror screenplays and this was by far the best. I liked that I felt like this was influenced partly by Scream.

From Christian Blanchard Date 11/25/2014 ****
Great! It's like April Fools' Day meets When A Stranger Calls.

From Adam Distrola Date 11/5/2014 ***
Very similar to R.L Stine's The Babysitter. With a twist

From Felicity Snyder Date 11/15/2013 ****
A great story, it got a bit confusing but I worked it out eventualy. Shoking ending, Well Done!

From jonathan Rome Date 10/27/2013 ****
I think if you elaborated the story a little like maybe the killer isn't really dead and gets her again before the movie ends. Or just add on to the ending
