ťMy School Part VIII © Graduationś
Scenes Requiring Rewrites:
Scene 35. Virgil Pembury's house.
For the first time, it is revealed where Kevin's grad ceremony is:
Virgil's house. They go through Virgil's front door and into the
living room. Kevin 3 shoves Parker onto the couch.
Parker (frightened) © What are you going to do to me?
Kevin 3 © You will attend my convocation. I
shall graduate with honours. You and
Teddy will deliver the valedictorians.
Parker (aghast) © Wh©what? I...when? When must I?
Kevin 3 (smirking) © After your detention.
Scene 37. Virgil's living room/kitchen.
Start closeup of Kevin 3's face.
Kevin 3 (silent but strong) © Be seated.
Parker surveys the table. It is stacked with grotesque ornaments.
Reluctantly, he seats himself. He glares at Kevin 3.
Kevin 3 (pleased) © Excellent. Just one more article...
Scene 39. Virgil's kitchen.
Note © in background is the sound of a choir humming, no words.
Kevin 3 is dressed in graduation gown. He holds a yearbook. Its
cover reads "Memories: Ian Briggs High School, 1990©91". The page he
has opened shows Parker's grade 12 grad photo.
Kevin 3 (ominously) © An old yearbook of your's, Parker.
What a lovely photograph...
Kevin 3 walks up to Parker and shows him the photo. Without saying a
word, he uses a pencil and draws a large X over the photo (as in
Parts II and III.)
Parker stares at him, nervously.
Scene 41. Virgil's living room.
Parker is seated in the school desk, in the midst of the living
room. In foreground, we see the middle of Kevin 3 pacing back and
forth. Stationary camera.
Kevin 3 (venomously) © You fear me. And so you should. For
I am the teacher...after school!
Parker (unimpressed) © Not a very impressive attribute if I'm the only student.
Kevin 3 (growls in rage) © Oh, I can arrange for some fellow
Kevin 3, with a wave of his hand, causes Carl to appear. He sees
Parker and smiles with recognition.
Parker (shocked) © Carl! I thought you were dead!"
Carl©ghost (mysteriously) © Oh, but I am. And so shall we all be
lest Kevin graduates. I wonder which
of us will hand him the parchment?
Parker (more defiant) © Kevin seeks a roll of honour? I
wouldn't hand him a roll of toilet
Kevin 3 slaps Parker with a backhand, then projects a forcefield
which pins Parker to the desk, unable to move. Carl©ghost puts his
hand consolingly on Parker's shoulder. Parker tries in vain to pull
his hands free from the desk. They are stuck and won't detach.
Carl©ghost (kind©heartedly) © It's okay, Parker. Now you won't have
to write lines on the chalkboard!
Kevin 3 (sudden thought) © I am the instructor. I am in command!
You will obey me without question.
Parker (incensed) © If you're looking to graduate, what
are you doing parading as a teacher?
Go to the god damned school board and
plead your case!
Carl©ghost © He can't. This is a world of fantasy.
For Kevin to graduate, he must make
the rules. And he can only make the
rules if he is the instructor...
Kevin 3 groans in agony. From his eye socket, a snake slithers out.
Kevin 3 takes it "•and dangles it in front of Parker's horrified face.
Slowly, unwillingly, Parker opens his mouth wide, forced to do so by
some unseen power. The snake slithers into Parker's mouth. (Pull
snake out and reverse videotape).
Kevin 3 (pleased) © You, Parker, have been chosen to help
me to revive my friend, Eugene. Open
the drawer and remove his remains.
Parker opens the drawer with his one free hand and removes Eugene
rather ungently. Kevin 3 takes exception to this."• He cuffs Parker
with a backhand.
Kevin 3 (miserbale) © You insult the remains of Eugene! I
revoke your priveleges in my
graduation ceremony. You shall die by
mine own hand!
Carl©ghost (upset) © Oh, Kevin, you promised me I could
kill him. I need some excitement.
Cemeteries get so boring, watching
your neighbours decompose. The reruns
are even worse!
Kevin 3 (snaps fingers) © Fine. His death will be slow and
painful. Perhaps, his agony will in
itself revive Eugene, who can bestow
upon me Graduation. Yes...that will be
my plan. So don't say I don't do
anything for you, Carl!
Kevin 3 grabs Teddy and sits down in a rocking chair.
Kevin 3 (to Teddy) © Oh, Teddy, we're only one more death
away from returning to life!
Scene 43. Virgil's living room.
Parker is still bound to the desk. He stares about him in panic as
Kevin 3 tests the sharpness of a knife.
Parker (hysterical) © Please see reason! Release me! I
haven't done you any harm!
Kevin 3, clenching the large knife, looks down angrily at Parker.
Kevin 3 (miserable) © But I intend to cause you harm!
Painful, fatal harm. I was recreated
through the deaths of others. It
follows that so too shall Teddy be
resurrected. Oh, and don't tell Carl
that I'm going to kill you instead!
Kevin 3 closes in on Parker. Carl©ghost, holding Teddy, looks on and
starts to clap his hands slowly together as if at a sporting event."•
Carl©ghost (razzling) © Go Kevin go! Go Kevin go! Go Kevin, go
Kevin, go, go, go!
Kevin 3 raises the knife, ready to sacrifice Parker.
Kevin 3 (snarling) © I'm sorry Parker. The first cut will
be the deepest...
Parker (panic) © I shall destroy you, Kevin. You won't
Kevin 3 (sneering) © No one shall stop me! This is for
Teddy! For graduation!
A closeup of the knife about to strike. Suddenly, a gunshot is heard
and the gun is blown from Kevin 3's hand. Detective Dixon is at the
front entrance, covering them with his gun.
Detective Dixon (butch) © Kevin Markson! Put your hands in the
air where I can see them!
Kevin 3 puts his hands up, but then lunges at the desk. In a flash
of light, the desk vanishes. Teddy vanishes from Carl©ghost's arms.
Detective Dixon (gun aimed) © Where'd they go? Did Scotty beam them
Carl©ghost © They went to Kevin's school. Ian
Detective Dixon (startled) © Thanks a lot. Hey, Carl...what the...?
Carl©ghost walks forward to Dixon. They embrace. (Use over©the©
shoulder shots with stunt doubles wearing either Hawaiian shirt or
Detective Dixon (gruffly) © Son, I don't have time for super©
natural interphases. Just get me to
that school. Quick!
Two©shot of Carl©ghost and Dixon. They are facing each other. They
fade out. They materialise in the field near Ian Briggs High. They
see Kevin 3 and Parker nearby. Kevin 3 does not see them, but knows
they are there.
Kevin 3 (commanding) © Detective Dixon. Carl. I'm glad you
could join our ceremony...
Carl©ghost comes forward to challenge Kevin 3, but Kevin 3 just
snaps his fingers. Carl©ghost collapses to the ground and heaves up
volumes of goo. Detective Dixon is trapped by a forcefield. Kevin 3
laughs sadistically as Carl©ghost dies and vanishes.
Teddy laughs too, his eyes glow green, and he vanishes.
Detective Dixon (horrified) © No! You killed my son twice! I'm going
to get you!
Parker tries to free himself from the desk, but fails.
Kevin 3 © Don't bother to try to escape, because
you can't. You may join us now, Dixon.
Kevin 3 snaps his fingers and Dixon's forcefield evaporates. Dixon,
in a stupor, comes to Kevin 3's side.
Kevin 3 (nasty) © The moment of my graduation has
arrived. Welcome to the convocation!
Kevin 3 points his finger at the desk drawer below. It opens of its
own accord. Inside is a blank high school diploma (honours).
Kevin 3 (proudly) © It is time...but the moment has been
Det. Dixon (looks about) © What a beautiful day this is! Before
there was rain, and now there is sun!
Parker (frustrated) © I don't feel like a party.
Kevin 3 (to Dixon) © Killing your son was better than
matriculation! I think I deserve my
Parker (adding insult) © Carl was as useless as you are, "Dick•!
My sister was too good for him! It's
lucky he's dead now. Why do you think
Carl and my sister didn't get married?
She didn't want you as a father©in©
law! I can see why they kicked you off
the police force, you old man!
Kevin 3 hands Parker the blank diploma.
Kevin 3 (nasty) © It doesn't have my name on it! Fill it
Parker does not need to. The letters K©E©V©I©N M©A©R©K©S©O© fill in
by themselves. Both Parker and Dixon show nervous faces. Before the
final N is filled in, Dixon grabs the diploma.
Det. Dixon © Bring back Carl, or this thing gets
Kevin 3 © I can't! You can only have one after©
Det. Dixon © Bring back Carl now!
Kevin 3 © There's nothing I can do about it!
Det. Dixon (tears diploma) © Then there's nothing I can do about
The diploma is torn in half. Dixon lets go of the pieces and they
blow away. Kevin 3 collapses to the ground and screams in pain.
Parker's desk vanishes and he falls to the ground. Det. Dixon and
Parker advance on Kevin 3 on the ground. Det. Dixon stabs Kevin 3
with his pipe, Parker does so with a pencil. They get up and walk
Parker (relieved) © I'm sorry i had to get you mad, Dixon.
It was the only way to destroy Kevin's
force field. How did you find me?
Det. Dixon (puzzled) © You wouldn't believe me if I told ya.
How are you feeling? Is your hand well
enough to write me a cheque?
Parker (nods grimly) © Kevin thought he could revive some
stupid teddy bear by killing me off.
Is Kevin dead?
They turn and look. Kevin 3 is gone.
Det. Dixon (cursing) © Where'd he go? Right from under our
A quick zoom into Parker's eyes. They glow green. The green fades.
He looks up at Dixon.ÜzÜŚ
Parker (excited) © He's back at Pembury's. Let's get him!
They vanish. They reappear at Virgil's. Kevin 3 greets them.
Kevin 3 © Mere mortals! You cannot stop me! I
have the legions of Hell as my
Det. Dixon fires his gun, but it clicks empty.
Kevin 3 (gloating) © Pathetic, stupid people. To even think
you could apprehend me!
Kevin 3 shows his right hand. Parker can see a ring on it.
Parker (aghast) © My...my sister's ring! You're a
creature of evil, a filthy©©
Closeup of Kevin 3's hand. The gem on the ring glows a bright blue.
Kevin 3 (mocking) © Yes, Carol's ring. Her graduation ring
to be precise. See how I control it.
Manipulate it. It gives me the ability
to summon...agents of blood!
The blue glow from the ring zaps across the room at incredible speed
and stops at the far end of the room, midair. A quick formation into
the body of Teddy, which immediately disperses. Teddy is now
Kevin 3 (spiteful) © Your sister is the one to blame! She
is the cause of my journey through the
time vortex. She is responsible for
those I have killed. But you know
something? Her death was the most
pleasing of all! My favorite murder!
Parker is enraged. He hurls himself at Kevin 3 and tackles Kevin 3
to the floor. They struggle on the floor, and Parker knocks the bone
from Kevin 3's hands. He begins to strangle Kevin 3.
Det. Dixon is forced to the ground. He looks about in fear and
surprise at...something. He opens his mouth in horror and tries to
backtrack on the floor away from it. He ducks something and screams
Meanwhile, Parker is strangling Kevin 3 and Kevin 3 grows stronger.
He grabs the bone and threatens Parker, but Parker blocks it. Then,
he becomes mesmerised by Kevin 3's hands.
Parker (pleading) © Your hands...Carol's hands...Carol is
part of you. Carol? Carol! If there's
any piece of you left in this monster,
(Kevin 3's POV. Screen is tinted green, but as Parker pleads, the
green slowly fades.)
Kevin 3 reacts slightly, as if convulsing, then his hands begin to
squeeze around his neck. Kevin 3 begins to choke himself.ÜzÜŚ
Parker (hopeful) © That's right, Carol! Fight for me, not
against me. Fight for me! Yes, do it!
Kevin 3 gasps in misery, and is losing the struggle. The camera
zooms in on him and goes out of focus...
Det. Dixon sees something flying at him and ducks. Again, he ducks
as it comes from a different direction, but the invisible thing
flies right into him...
Kevin 3 loses the struggle and collapses. Parker reaches for the
bone. He smashes it into Kevin 3's head, over and over.
Parker (uncontrolled) © Die! Die! I'll make it so you never
Det. Dixon comes over. He has his gun ready.
Parker (steady and sure) © Don't incarcerate him, Dixon. It'll do
nothing for us.
Det. Dixon (looks unsure) © You don't mean. (Looks at gun)
Parker (emphatic) © We must. We must make sure that he
never comes back!
Det. Dixon (growly) © Stand back.
Det. Dixon aims his gun and fires six times. We don't see Kevin 3
taking the shots. Det. Dixon puts his arm around Parker.
Det. Dixon (fatherly) © Let's go to my office. We need to get
as far from this terror as we can.
