Scene 1. JUNE, 1991. Carol's living room.

Outside, it is storming and the sky is filled with lightning. Camera

floats from front of house to see Carol in her living room. The

spirit floats right through the window, past Carol, and into the


Carol is chatting on the phone. Camera pans from her grad photo to

her holding the phone, sitting in chair.

Carol - I need you to babysit Carl Jr tonight.

Yes, yes, I know about the end-of-term

parties this weekend, that's why I

need a sitter. My brother's graduating

from Ian Briggs High tomorrow...

Carol listens to the phone while we see a bright light flash from

her kitchen.

Carol (shot from behind) - Thanks a lot. You can pick up the baby

at the nursery...

In the kitchen, camera follows something invisible. The knife drawer

opens by itself. A large knife floats in air, as if held tightly by

something imperceptible. Shot of Carol hanging up the phone and

relaxing in chair.

The kitchen door opens quietly. The knife floats slowly towards

Carol, her back turned and oblivious to the threat. Camera slowly

advances on her lame duck target. Camera stops, looking down at her

sitting in the chair.

Shot from in front of Carol, showing the knife now slitting her

throat. Blood pours out. She gurgles in surprise and dies, eyes open

and in shock. The knife floats to a table and rests there. Camera is

killer's POV, inspects Carol's corpse.

Kevin (voice only) - Hello Carol! I'm back!

Maniacal laughter as camera zooms in slowly on Carol and blurs into

the opening credits...


Skull, etc. Camera goes through skull eye to see Scene 2

Scene 2. A shot of an answering machine on a desk. The light is

flashing. One message. A hand reaches out and hesitantly hits

the PLAY button. A voice comes over the machine, while the

hand (Dixon's) plays with a pencil.

Parker (voice on tape) - I...I need your help...I don't know

what to do...I'm so frightened...

Please meet me...You're the only hope

I have...

Message ends. The hand smashes the STOP button.


Scene 3. Night time. Lamp on a deserted downtown street.

A shadowy figure leans against a lamp post. Only his profile can be

seen. He is Detective Dixon, dressed in typical sleuth's garb.

A teen (Parker) searches in his pocket for a piece of paper. He

uncrumples it and reads it. He lets out an exaggerated sigh, then

puts it back in his pocket and walks towards Dixon.

Parker (unsure) - Detective...Dixon?

Det. Dixon (smart-ass) - That's my name, don't wear it out.

Parker (nicely) - I'm Parker. I contacted you earlier.

I would like you to solve a murder.

Detective Dixon steps from the shadows and his face becomes

illuminated by the streetlight.

Det. Dixon (looks about) - Come to my office. The night has ears.


Scene 4. Inside Dixon's office. He sits behind desk, feet on it,

looking somewhat skeptical. Parker stands in front of

desk, and begins his story.

Parker (enthusiastic) - Detective Dixon? Will you accept my


Detective Dixon (weary) - We wouldn't have come back here if I

wasn't interested. It's your job to

convince me it's worth my while.

Parker (pleading) - My sister's been murdered. I...I...

haven't informed the authorities yet.

I didn't feel they would be too reli-

able. I mean, they're still trying to

figure out that massacre last August.

Det. Dixon picks up a detective magazine and begins to read it.

Detective Dixon (bored) - I heard via the grapevine that that

massacre had some rather peculiar

aspects to it. If you ask me, it was

that guidance counsellor guy. Would

you just get to the facts about your

case, sir? Like how, what, when,

where, and who?

Parker (impatient) - My sister, Carol.

(Detective Dixon glances up, then quickly looks at his book again.)

Parker - I discovered her...her corpse last

night. I went to her house after she

failed to attend my grad ceremonies.

Figuring she was ill, I stopped in.

Scene 5. Parker continues his narrative as we see him entering

Carol's house's front door.

- I was surprised to find her front door open, initially indicating

to me that she was home and well. Because of her boyfriend Carl's

death, she found the strain of raising her newborn son quite

immense, and any chance to go out she eagerly grabbed. I was

becoming more and more confused. And then...

He looks in unsure. - Carol? Carol, are you in?

He slowly walks up the

stairs. He looks inside

the tv room. - Carol? Where are you?

He arrives in the kitchen,

sees the open knife drawer. - Where could she have gone?

He grows shocked as he

heads towards the chair

where Carol's corpse lies.

Parker gasps.


Scene 6. Dixon's office.

Parker - That's when I thought of hiring you.

Det. Dixon (more interest) - You didn't touch anything? The body is

still there?

Parker (sad still) - I told you. I found her yesterday. The

police have not been told.

Det. Dixon gets his feet off the desk and springs to life.

Det. Dixon (looks at watch) - It's almost morning. Come on, we'll

grab some breakfast and I'll check the

scene myself.

Det. Dixon heads out of the office. Parker stands there, befuddled.

Parker - Does this mean you accept? How do you

want to be paid? Do you take Visa?

Det. Dixon (looks back) - A premeditated murder is just what I

need to resurrect my insignificant

career. Of course I'll take your case.

Now let's go. The cadaver's smell will

likely alert nosy neighbours.

They head out the office.


Scene 7. Carol's house.

It is sunrise. Det. Dixon and Parker are both eating doughnuts.

They step inside Carol's house.

Det. Dixon (looks about) - Nice pad.

(winces) - And I was right about the smell.

Parker (offended) - You're as a subtle as a sledgehammer.

Det. Dixon (gruff) - Enough small talk. Where's the stiff?

Parker leads Det. Dixon to the chair where Carol's corpse lies. A

shot of their grossed-out reactions. Camera shows Carol's corpse.

It has moved since seen earlier. This time, her arms have been

brutally severed.

Parker (aghast, gasps) - My God! What-what has happened?

Det. Dixon (confused) - What's up? Is this her, or isn't it?

Parker (shocked) - It is...yes...but the body's...

different...Her arms...

Det. Dixon (impatient) - What arms? Forgive my ignorance, but

what is going on around here!? Is this

some school prank?

Parker (maddened) - I hired you to answer that question!

Her body has been altered since I

found it yesterday!

Det. Dixon (helpfully) - Perhaps in your horror you overlooked

this concern.

Parker shoots him a dirty look.

Det. Dixon (befuddled) - Then what you're saying is that some-

one killed her, waited 24 hours, then

came back and finished off the job?

Parker (gets up) - So it seems. Jesus, this is sick.

Det. Dixon (gets note pad) - What was her condition as you first

found her. I assume she was armed?

Parker (still sad) - No, she didn't like guns.

Det. Dixon - I mean, the only evidence of injury

was her throat being slit?

Parker nods his head solemnly.

Det. Dixon (scratches head) - Then I suggest we look about for some

indication of the weapon that was

used. Remember not to touch anything.

Parker leaves, looking about carefully. Det. Dixon remains and

stares thoughtfully at Carol's corpse.

Det. Dixon (solemnly) - What monster could have done this?


Scene 8. Basement laboratory.

Two arms (Carol's) float in the air towards a lab bench, covered in

cobwebs and scientific equipment. Test tubes, beakers, computers,

chemicals and medical supplies lie about.

The arms are put down on a cleared-off area of the table. Camera

lingers, looking at the arms (Invisible Kevin's POV).

Kevin (wheezing, tired) - My mission...must not fail.

I must greatest test...

Camera slowly pans over to reveal a smaller table or a book shelf,

previously unseen. Camera closes in and shows the chopped up remains

of Eugene.

Kevin (bitter) - Destroying Carol wasn't enough. No,

she must help me return from the

vortex. Soon, they shall all pay for

their folly.


Scene 9. Carol's house. Det. Dixon is searching the kitchen. Parker

joins him from elsewhere.

Parker (glumly) - I couldn't find anything of use.

Det. Dixon (arrogantly) - Not surprising. That's why I'm the

cop and you're only the client.

Parker - Any luck on your end?

Det. Dixon (still searches) - Naturally. Unlike a civil servant, I

earn my money. I believe this knife

may be the one that was used.

Parker - How do you know this?

Det. Dixon picks up the knife so as not to disturb any fingerprints.

He places it in a plastic bag.

Det. Dixon (absently) - The fact that there's blood all over

it. However, I think this was only

used for the neck wound; as for the

arms, I am not sure what device was

employed. A chain saw perhaps.

Parker (yawning) - It's still early morning. I need some

sleep. Should we call the medics to

claim Carol's body?

Det. Dixon turns on Parker sharply.

Det. Dixon (sharp, loud) - Certainly not! We'll keep the windows

closed to contain the odour, but the

body remains here. I'm gambling that

whoever was responsible will return.

Parker (shocked) - You can't keep her here like some sort

of grisly trophy! We must show some


Det. Dixon (professionally) - Look, I realise she was your sister

and all, but show me some respect too.

We need to use her as a lure. I figure

her legs will be next.

Parker (turns in disgust) - You're as vile as her killer.

Det. Dixon (snarly) - Get some sleep. Leave this to the



Scene 10. A city park, where there is an amateur slasher movie shoot.

Shaun is being approached by a hockey masked killer with an obvious-

ly fake plastic axe from Chuckles. The killer swings the axe and

hits Shaun in the head. Shaun spits out a wee trickle of red Kool-

Aid from his mouth, then falls, dead. Exaggerated fakery. (Note -

make this look like part of the real movie until...)

Sudden shot of Margot's face. She is seated in a director's chair.

Margot (unimpressed, yells) - CUT!

Christopher is shown manipulating a camera held on a tripod, getting

the shot of Shaun's "death" we saw seconds earlier. He stops taping

and looks up, annoyed.

Christopher (annoyed) - Whaddaya mean "Cut!"? That shot was a

smoothly textured example of juxta-

posing the semiotic variance between

macabre demise and the existential

subcultured paralysis of modern life!

Margot (diplomatic) - I know, I know, but I wasn't happy

with how Shaun puked up the Kool-Aid.

Shaun gets up and dusts himself off. He is noticeably upset.

Shaun (whining) - Hey, I gotta get going. I got news-

papers to deliver y'know.

Masked Killer - I'm getting bored of this scene. We've

already done it twice. Why d'we have

to do it again?

Margot (impatient) - We do it until it's done properly.

Masked Killer - Ah, you guys don't know what you're

doing. This ain't anything like the

Turtles. I quit.

Masked Killer throws his mask and axe down and stomps off. Shaun

looks expectantly at Margot and Christopher, who in turn look at

each other with weariness.

Margot (rubs temples) - We'll call you when we can shoot

again. Thanks for coming out.

Margot and Christopher watch Shaun leave. Christopher walks up to

Margot. He takes her cup of water, and they go hand-in-hand to a

horizontal chaise-longue. Margot slowly reclines onto it like a

vampire settling into a casket, folding her arms across her chest.

Margot (complaining) - It's like they expect Craven or Hitch- cock when you're only eighteen!

Christopher (sympathetic) - Am I correct in surmising that you're

not pleased with the artistic scope of

this motion picture?

Christopher stands over Margot and begins to flick fingers of water

from the cup onto her like a priest does at a communion.

Margot (sighing) - No. I need better gore. Graphic sex

and violence. The public expect it.

They aren't satisfied with amateurism,

even from amateurs.

Christopher (smirking) - You know what we must do? People want that's what they'll get.

Margot (wickedly) - You mean actually kill our victims? A

snuff film? That's illegal!

Christopher (kneels to her) - Not snuff films. Documentary-like. We

should have gotten footage of all the

corpses in that high school last year.

Margot (licks lips sexily) - You're being morbid.

Christopher - We can win the prize money for

Canada's Goriest Home Videos. The

spark for our careers!

Margot thinks on it. She slowly rises and pats Christopher's head.

Margot - You still have the CB in your car?

Christopher (smiles) - And I even know the paramedics'

broadcast frequency.

Margot (folds chaise-lnge) - Then tune in and turn on.

Scene 11. Carol's house.

Det. Dixon observes Parker sleeping on a bed. Quietly, he closes the

door and walks off. He sees something, and is puzzled. Curious, he

walks into an adjoining room and sees sewing equipment, needles and

thread thrown about. He peers at the stuff, thinks it over, then

carefully picks up the sewing case.

A sudden knock on the wall. Det. Dixon jumps from singed nerves.

Parker (OOV, cheerier) - Sewing equipment. Find something?

Det. Dixon (upset) - Don't you ever sneak up on me like

that again! I happen to be collecting

further samples for my investigation.

I've noticed that your sister keeps a

tidy house; hence I didn't feel she

would keep her sewing materiel thus.

Parker - It's noon; I've caught up with my

sleep. I take it we weren't revisited?

Det. Dixon (stands, frowns) - No, my stakeout appears to have

frightened away the guilty party.

(thinks it over) - Alright, we'll return to my office and

check the knife for prints. C'mon.

They head down the stairs and out the door.


Scene 12. Jeremy's basement.

Jeremy sits down watching a horror movie. Bell rings. He answers

door and welcomes in Shaun, wearing a paper delivery bag.

Shaun (overjoyed) - I'm done with these faggot things.

Let's watch some Frankie!

Jeremy (happy too) - The VCR's all set. It's downstairs.

Shaun and Jeremy leave the front door area. After they're gone, we

see the door open and shut by itself.

In basement, they sit on the couch and Jeremy begins the film. We

see excerpts from "Frankenstein". Suddenly, the picture goes.

Shaun (miffed) - Your machine busted?

Jeremy (goes to see) - Piece of crap! Better phone Granada.

I'll just be upstairs.

Jeremy leaves and goes upstairs. Shaun lies down horizontally on the

couch and relaxes.

Jeremy is on the upstairs phone.

Jeremy (freaks out) - $115 000! Plus GST? Just to fix a VCR!

Are you nuts? No I don't want it on a

monthly installment!

A noise from downstairs. Jeremy looks towards basement stairs.

Jeremy (impatient) - Fine. Just come over then.

Jeremy hangs up and goes back downstairs. He approaches the couch.

Shaun has a pillow over his head. He is lying down as if asleep.

Jeremy - We have to wait until the Granada guy

arrives. Let's play some backgammon.

No answer. Jeremy huffs and pulls off the pillow. Shaun has no head.

Beneath the pillow is a bloodied stump of a neck. Jeremy chokes in

horror and spins about. An invisible force punches him to the floor.

Jeremy is on the ground, responding to blows to the face and chest.

His face becomes bloodied and he spews more blood from his mouth.

In rough shape, Jeremy tries to get up. Suddenly, the invisible

force tears off his left leg. Jeremy screams and dies.

Jeremy's leg and Shaun's head float in the air up the stairs.

Kevin (voice only) - At last! My preparations are complete.


Scene 13. Det. Dixon's office.

Det. Dixon is looking into a microscope, examining the knife found

at Carol's. Parker sits on a chair, bored.

Parker (yawning) - I thought cop work was more exciting

than this.


Det. Dixon (not looking up) - Forget about what you see on TV. It's

the thrill of the hunt that makes it

all worthwhile. Plus the money.

Parker (gets up) - Well, how difficult is it to find some

smudgy fingerprints? You've taken over

twenty minutes on that knife!

Det. Dixon looks up from his work. He wipes his head.

Det. Dixon (unpleased) - There's no prints on the handle. No

glove lint, or anything. It doesn't

make sense. I can't even find any of

Carol's prints. It's like mint


Parker (indignant) - That's impossible. Someone used it. Or

did they pour the blood on the blade?

Det. Dixon (thoughtfully) - The knife was used. Yet it wasn't


He looks at his sample of Carol's sewing stuff. He rubs his chin in


Det. Dixon (softly) - Perhaps...just wasn't a

case of no strings attached...


Scene 14. Ian Briggs High School parking lot.

Two students, Alfred and Wes, sit on hood of a car with slurpees.

Alfred (Rocky-like) - Yo, Wes, Mr Biggles told me I'm

gonna get a 51. Yeah, dude, got it

made, get it laid!

Alfred high-fives Wes who blows some slurpee into the air.

Wes (equally dunce-like) - Let's get some chicks and go drinkin'

in the park, man. Like, we're outta

school. Time for some serious boozin'!

Alfred - Yeah, so let's score some beer, dude!

Wes - Right on, man. Check out my alphabet:


They throw their slurpees against the school and drive off.

Scene 15. City morgue.

Margot and Christopher dejectedly leave the front entrance.

Christopher (upset) - I can't believe they wouldn't let us

take footage! What's their problem?

Margot (mad, then sad) - Tell me about it! That one stiff was

cute. Too bad he wasn't disemboweled

'til after I met him.

Christopher - What are we gonna do? There wasn't

anything on the paramedics' frequency.

Margot (takes command) - Then we listen in on the police broad-

casts. That'll lead us to the mayhem.

Determinedly, they head to their car.

Scene 16. The basement laboratory.

Camera starts on the table, nice and peaceful, when suddenly a leg,

followed by a head, splat onto the table. Quick shot showing Teddy,

as before. Camera slowly pans over the equipment and bubbling

liquids to show a torso, Carol's arms, and some clothes. (These

clothes will later be worn by the new Kevin.)

Slowly, the arms, head, leg, and another leg previously unseen all

move as if by themselves towards the torso. They are placed near to

where they should be. Next, show Carol's sewing stuff and needles

floating to the body parts.

The needle goes into the dead flesh of the arm and begins sewing.


Scene 17/A. Det. Dixon's office.

Det. Dixon has a sewing stuff and knife beside him on his desk. He

is on the phone, talking to someone.

Det. Dixon - Yes, that's the address. The body is

approximately two days old...Right...

Yes...No, I don't know what has

happened to her yet...

Scene 18/A. Basement lab. Show Carol's other arm being sewn.

Scene 17/B. Det. Dixon talking on phone. No audio.

Scene 18/B. Basement lab. The legs are being worked on.

Scene 17/C. Det. Dixon hangs up phone and looks at Parker.

Scene 18/C. Basement lab. The head has now been sewed on.

Scene 17/D. Dixon jumps off desk and beckons Parker to follow him out

of the office.

Scene 18/D. Basement lab. A lever is pulled down by invisible Kevin.

Flashes of light. The makeshift body is bathed in electri-

city and purple light. A shot of Teddy, still the same.

Suddenly, the lights subside and the makeshift body lies

there. A flash of brain energy illuminates the head.

Scene 17/E. Det. Dixon and Parker walking down a hall. The lights dim,

fluctuate, then return to normal. They look in confusion,

then move on.

Scene 18/E. The body is still. Suddenly, in closeup, the two hands

flex and stiffly release. The arms move, stiffly too.

Slowly the upper half of the new Kevin rises up. The face,

formerly Shaun's, is white and deathly.

Kevin 2 growls and slowly gets up. He spies a mask to the

side. He stumbles over and stares at it. Then, he puts it

on. He whirls around and glares at the camera.

Kevin 2 (nasty) - I am resurrected. My reign of terror

and death has only just begun...


Scene 19. Det. Dixon's car.

Parker (impatient) - You mind telling me what sudden

inspiration you've just had.

Det. Dixon - My boy, when you're as good a cop as I

am, you learn a few tricks. Such as

listening for police bulletins in the

background of a phone call.

Parker (interested) - What did you hear?

Det. Dixon - Some kid got wasted in the basement of

his house. That doesn't concern me.

However, the modus operandi was simi-

lar to the grisly nature of your

sister's murder. And...his address is

near your sister's place.

Parker (depressed) - This is beginning to depress me.

Det. Dixon (cool cat) - Cheer up. Things like this keep me

employed. I can soon start paying my


Parker looks at Det. Dixon, then shakes his head in disgust.


Scene 20. ALCB store.

Alfred leaves the store carrying a 12-pack on his shoulder like a

ghetto blaster. He walks up to Wes and his car.

Alfred - Yo, I guess I do look eighteen.

Wes (excited) - Let's rock. Party time in the Park.

Boris and Bela are gonna meet us


They drive off.

Scene 21. Back yard of Fred's house.

Fred is pruning a hedge when he wipes the sweat from his head. Puts

shears down on ground. A shot showing him going into his house to

get a drink, suggesting he is being watched. Soon Fred returns with

a drink. He looks confused. The shears are missing.

Fred (bewildered) - Must have brought them in with me.

Fred turns to go back in his house. Look of horror. The shears are

shown closeup, driving down towards the camera...FADE TO BLACK.

Scene 22. Jeremy's house.

Margot and Christopher arrive in their car. They rush out, video

camera at the ready. The front door is left open, and they walk in.

Some shots through Christopher's camera (ie with time displayed).

Margot sniffs the air.

Margot (pleased) - I smell death downstairs.

Christopher joins her. He sniffs too. He nods approval.

Christopher (poetic) - A fine bouquet. A 1991 vintage I'd

say. My camera awaits the grisly sight

with as much anticipation as I do.

Margot and Christopher go downstairs. They spy the two dead boys and

smile to each other. They hold hands and advance, as if in a wedding


Christopher (encouragingly) - Go over to the guy missing the leg. Do

some poses.

A voice behind them.

Det. Dixon (out of view) - Yes, do that. I need the mug shots.

Christopher and Margot whirl around. They see Det. Dixon and Parker

slowly walking towards them. Det. Dixon has his gun aimed at them.

Det. Dixon (upset) - Get away from them!

Margot (infuriated) - Who are you? How dare you interrupt

our artistic endeavour! You've no


Det. Dixon (meaner) - Breaking and entering for one.

Suspicion of murder for another.

Christopher (rises to it) - We are reporters investigating--

Det. Dixon (interrupts) - You obviously heard it from police

broadcasts. Have you two no ethics

Margot - We heard about it, yes.

Det. Dixon (tetchily) - Then who phoned about this?

Granada Technician is hiding behind the couch. He reveals himself.

Granada Technician - I did. Without finding out who killed

these people, I can't press a claim

for services rendered. As a creature

of the Granada Corporation, I...

Det. Dixon (impatient) - Thank you, I'll be in touch with my

report. I must ask that you leave; I

am quarantining this house.

Granada Technician gathers his tools and leaves. He walks towards

his vehicle and opens the door. He drops his keys. Reaches to pick

them up when a foot steps on his fingers. Bone crushing. Shot of a

hand starting a chain saw. Closeup of Granada Technician beginning

to babble in fear. Chain saw is grinding into his stomach. Blood and

mushed intestines spray up, foamy, into Kevin 2's face mask. The

screams subside. Mangled mess drops into cabin of vehicle.

In basement, Det. Dixon confronts Margot and Christopher.

Det. Dixon (gruff) - I don't like the public interfering in

my attempts to protect it. I've got

your names. That's all I need. May I

escort you to your car?

They walk out of the house and go to Christopher's car. Det. Dixon

waits by the passenger door. As Margot climbs in, Det. Dixon sees a

bloodied chain saw in the back of the car. His eyes widen. He

watches them drive off. Closeup of his face, scowling, as he

observes. Turns to return to the house when he hears a horn toot.

A car pulls up. An officer walks out of his car and approaches Det.

Dixon. A smirk of contempt on his face.

Insp. Walrustitty (snobby) - Detective Dixon.

Det. Dixon (not so pleased) - Inspector Walrustitty. I was waiting

for you to meddle in this problem.

Insp. Walrustitty puts his arm around Det. Dixon's shoulder in mock

friendship and they walk to the house. Inside:

Insp. Walrustitty - Still trying to play the cop, eh?

Wasn't your dismissal from the force

enough of a hint? You should employ

yourself in something more befitting


Det. Dixon (snarling) - I didn't find my badge in a cereal


They join Parker in the basement. He is weeping.

Insp. Walrustitty (pompous) - Harassing your witnesses again?

Det. Dixon is about to punch Insp. Walrustitty's smiling face, but

thinks better of it.

Insp. Walrustitty - You'd do better than to strike an

officer, Dixon. Or do old habits die


Det. Dixon (joins Parker) - Get on with your work. We'll see

ourselves out.

A shot of Insp. Walrustitty's bemused face. He turns to see the

corpses for the first time, then makes a face of revulsion.

Scene 23 (a). Suntan Queen's back yard.

Start with shot of suntan lotion, as a shadow covers it then recedes

to allow the sun to shine on it. As we pan away from it, Suntan

Queen is heard reading from her yearbook.

Suntan Queen (sweetly) - All the best in the future. Watch the

tan lines! Your favorite math teacher,

Mr Biggles. Oh, how sweet.

(checks her tan) - I'd better put on some more lotion.

Suntan Queen walks over to get the lotion. Sits in chair again. Puts

some lotion on her stomach. Makes funny face, smells lotion, then

rubs her arm. Starts to scream as the lotion begins to melt away the

skin. Suddenly, wherever lotion went, skin is peeling off and blood

oozes out. A shot showing a giant hole in her stomach, and we can

see the back of her yard, etc, through the wound. Suntan Queen dies.

Closeup of dead face -- in background we see Kevin 2 leaving.



23 (B).


Scene 23 (B). Alley behind Carol's house.

Kevin 2 is walking down the alley. His steps falter, and he leans

against the fence. He breathes heavy. He looks down at his hands.

Kevin 2 (in agony) - Something...isn't working. Something

is...missing...from the puzzle...

Camera zooms in on his right hand. As it zooms in, a ghostly image

of Carol's face, laughing evilly, zooms out. Carol's head seems to

have grown out of, and is rotating on, Kevin 2's hand. Zoom into her

mouth, and it is a dark void.

In the void, two figures are seated around a table: Carl, Carol's

boyfriend (Benny Renjar guest appearance), and Parker, her brother.

There are school books and calculators (with the number 666 on their

screens) on the table. Carl is tutoring Parker. Behind the table, a

clown is juggling three apples.

Carl (impatient) - Parker, concentrate! If you don't pass

Mr Biggles' math class, you won't

graduate! Now try this: if 13 people

in a cemetery were murdered, and there

are 666 corpses, what percentage were

victims of homicide?

Clown (taunting) - Don't mess up, Parker. You only have

one chance to get it right!

Carl and Parker ignore the Clown. Parker gets flustered. He crumples

up his scribble paper. He hurls it at the Clown. The Clown drops the

apples and catches the paper. Like a magician, he makes it vanish.

Clown (merrily) - Hey, Parker! It's illusion!

Parker (angry at Carl) - I don't know the answer! Maybe I'll

just go to the retard school! What's

so great about graduating, anyway?

Carl (philosophical) - We learn as we live...

Clown (interrupts) - ...And die as we live...

Carl (continues) - Graduation is the end of one life and

the birth of another. No diploma, and

you're nothing more than a social

abortion. Graduation is like a

chrysallis - you emerge a new man! A

new life!

Camera zooms away from them. We zoom out of Carol's mouth. Carol is

as before, a ghostly image on Kevin 2's hand, still laughing.

Carol - I will fail you, Kevin. I will fail

you, Kevin. I will fail you, Kevin...

Kevin 2 closes his hand and smother Carol's image.

Kevin 2 (stronger) - I know what I must do...

He begins to stalk Carol's house.

Scene 24. Margot and Christopher's car, parked near Carol's house.

Inside the car, Margot is laid back, reclining her head on

Christopher's lap. He gazes at her lovingly, stroking her hair.

Margot's eyes are closed, with pennies on them.

Christopher (romantic) - I want to chase ambulances with you...

Margot (sweetly) - Read me some poetry.

Chris takes a piece of paper from his breast pocket. He unfolds it.


Christopher (endearingly) - I've been saving this for a tender

moment like now. It's one of my

favourites, though a bit dated.

Christopher composes himself and begins to recite the verses. As he

does, Margot seems to be experiencing pleasurable feelings.

Christopher (Bard-like) - Skorman. Mr Frank W. Skorman;

Public school educator and counsellor;

Beloved husband of Erika,

Passed away on August 17, 1990,

5 At the age of 39 years.

Frank is survived by no children,

But by 13 dear nephews and nieces;

Predeceased by nephews Lafe and Kevin.

Frank was admired and loved by

10 Students and Staff alike for his

Caring devotion to the people

In whose trust he was placed.

Shot of sweat on Christopher's forehead as he continues:

A Private Ceremony will be held at:

7.06 pm on August 24, 1990 at:

15 Rogers Family Chapel,

3003 Macleod Trail S.W.

Flowers and gifts will not be


Margot whimpers slightly. A very fine stream of blood trickles from

the corner of her mouth.

Margot (softly) - You have a way with words that is...


Margot sits up and Christopher grabs his camcorder.

Christopher - We must continue with our purpose.

Scene 25. Carol's house.

Insp. Walrustitty gazes at Carol's corpse. Shakes head in disbelief.

Insp. Walrustitty (quietly) - Maniacs! Why does this happen? First

those kids, now this woman. It's those

damn slasher flicks they rent! Copycat


Hears a door creaking. Turns to look at front door. It is left open.

Insp. Walrustitty - Damn hinges.




Insp. Walrustitty walks to the door. Grabs the handle to swing it

shut. Horrified surprise as Kevin 2 was hiding behind the door.

Steps back is fear. Kevin 2 grabs an umbrella from a hat stand and

advances on Insp. Walrustitty. Insp. Walrustitty is babbling in

terror. Kevin 2 clenches the umbrella. Insp. Walrustitty manages to

whip out a gun and fires at Kevin 2's head. QUICK INSERT SHOT OF


Kevin 2 staggers, blood dripping out of the hole in his mask. Feels

blood from his wound and glares at Insp. Walrustitty. Knocks gun out

of his hands with the umbrella. Insp. Walrustitty backs away, then

stumbles. Kevin impales him with the umbrella and kills the cop.


Scene 26. Det. Dixon's office.

Det. Dixon sticks a pin into a map of the city (shot to match impal- ing of umbrella.) Parker is admiring a prize gun mounted on the

wall. Det. Dixon sees Parker and joins him.

Det. Dixon (proudly) - That gun was given to me by my wife. A

sort of wedding gift you might say.

(turns sour) - I regret not using it on her.

Parker (befuddled) - I can't see how you ever became a

member of the police force.

Det. Dixon (bitter) - Well, I ain't part of it now, am I?

Ungrateful bastards!

Parker (looks to far wall) - What were you doing over there? With

the map?

They go over to a map of the city with pins in it.

Det. Dixon (teacher-like) - I have compiled a list of the

addresses of all murder victims in the

past forty-eight hours. I placed pins

for each household. An interesting

pattern, as you'll notice.

Parker (inspects the map) - A sort of constellation...

Det. Dixon (intensely) - ...of a pentagram! At least, it's

forming into one. If only we could

have a few more victims to confirm my


Parker (hesitant) - Well, say it is a pentagram. What

would be the significance? Satanic

ritual killings?

Det. Dixon (shakes head) - I wouldn't say so. There's been little

evidence of anything save for the

pattern on the map. Still, there's one

troublesome feature of this model.


Parker (expectantly) - Yes...?

Det. Dixon (snarling) - The epicentre is your sister's place.


Scene 27. Carol's house.

Margot and Christopher enter. They appear nervous, but when they

look at the low angle camera, their faces light up and they smile.

Christopher (happy) - Our video footage is getting better

all the time.

Christopher leans down to inspect Insp. Walrustitty's corpse a

little closer. Suddenly, Insp. Walrustitty's hand shoots up and

grabs Christopher's neck. He gurgles and tries to unleash the deadly

grip. Margot screams in surprise and fear. Just as suddenly, Insp.

Walrustitty falls back to the floor, dead again.

Margot (horrified) - Wasn't he dead? What happened?

Christopher (rubs throat) - I dunno. Dead men tell no tales. It

must have been...

Christopher turns to Margot, but gasps as he sees her, dead, stuck

into the wall with a giant knife. He aims camcorder at her corpse.

Christopher (grimly) - Can't let your death be in vain...

He shoots footage of Margot, then sees a figure near him. Switch to

his POV through camcorder, with date/time showing. See a muddled

shape of Kevin 2 through monitor, then camera goes all awkward,

showing floor, ceiling, walls, etcetera, as Christopher gets tossed

around. Hear his screams of protest. Switch POV to show his horri-

fied face as he sees his imminent demise...

Kevin 2 (takes off mask) - I must kill...I must ravage...Only

through bloodshed can Teddy become

whole again. The power of life dest-

royed him. Only the power of death

can reconstruct him. And reconstruct

him I shall.

(weakens, feels wound) But first, I must make amends.

Scene 28. Det. Dixon's car.

Parker (irritated) - Just what do you hope to accomplish by

returning to my sister's house? It

brings back such unpleasant memories.

Det. Dixon (gruff) - Look. If there's one thing you gotta

learn bucko, it's that this is a job

for men, not boys. If you happen to

feel a little squeamish just 'cause

your sister's dead and had her arms

torn off, that ain't my problem.

Parker glares angrily, but Detective Dixon continues.

Detective Dixon - Now quit whining like a little girl

and trust my instincts. No one's gonna

solve this case but me, so just suck

it back and shut up.

Parker's fists tighten in hatred. He scowls at Det. Dixon, then in a

huff of attitude glares out of the front windshield.


Scene 29. Kevin's laboratory.

Shot lingers on the lab bench. Suddenly, the head of Shaun splats on

the bench after being tossed. A shot of a headless Kevin 2 standing

there. Next, we see Kevin 3's hands holding needle and thread lift

up and poke through his new head's skin, sewing it on. The new head

is Insp. Walrustitty's.

Various shots dissolve together showing different stages of the

sewing. Soon, it is done. Kevin 3 grips the lever used earlier, and

he is again flooded by energy. SHOT OF TEDDY. REVERSE THE VIDEOTAPE


Kevin 3 spies a mirror. He admires his new head.

Kevin 3 (creepily) - From death to life. And now, from good

to evil!

Tosses mirror away, cracking it when he steps on it. Puts on mask

again and heads to Teddy. Kisses Teddy, pats him, howls like a wolf,

then leaves.

Scene 30. Carol's house.

Det. Dixon and Parker drive up. They hop out of car and go inside.

They see the body of Insp. Walrustitty, minus its head. They are


Det. Dixon (weirdly) - I'm as disgusted as I am pleased to

see this. Unfortunately, when I tell

his widow the sad news, I'll also have

to visit my ex-wife.

Parker (notices others) - Hey, look, it's those two weird video


Det. Dixon joins him. He inspects the mess.

Det. Dixon - This is getting ridiculous. Any more

bodies and I'll run out of note paper.

Parker gets up, grabs Det. Dixon by the shirt, and slams him against

the wall. He is furious at Det. Dixon's callousness.

Parker (irate) - Look, I've had it up to here with your

callous disregard for others. Your

sick comments are not appreciated, and

if you expect to see your money you'll

start acting like a professional. Have

I made myself clear?

He lets go of Det. Dixon.

Det. Dixon (shaken) - I don't see why...

Parker (grabs him again) - HAVE...I...MADE...MYSELF...CLEAR?

Det. Dixon (sulking) - Yes.

Parker looks satisfied and backs off, almost tripping over a corpse.

Det. Dixon looks at him sadly, then puts his arm around Parker's

shoulder and they sit down on a couch.

Det. Dixon (friendlier) - Y'know, my boy, five years ago I would

have beat the living Jesus outta ya

for that. Not now. Now I'm gonna thank

you. Yes, I've been overbearing and

arrogant; it's how I handle myself

when I don't understand something.

When I'm frightened of something. For

years people laughed in my face and

questioned what I thought. It was

tough believing in yourself when

you're a constant source of ridicule.

I learned too late that those people

scorn you because they themselves had

nothing to offer. I used to react with

my fists instead of with my brain. I

guess when I began to question myself

about this case, I reacted against

myself as I used to react against

others. No hard feelings...?

Det. Dixon offers his hand. Parker smiles and shakes it.

Det. Dixon (happier) - 'Attaboy. Now let's...

He cuts off, seeing something. It is Christopher's camcorder -- the

power is still on. Det. Dixon picks it up and inspects it.

Parker (helpfully) - It's still on. Maybe it was recording

when this guy got killed.

Det. Dixon (smugly) - Just what I was thinking. Can you work

this thing?

Det. Dixon hands the camcorder to Parker.

Parker - Better than he can.

Det. Dixon raises a quizzical eyebrow at the remark as Parker begins

to fiddle with the camcorder. Parker's expression slowly turns to

one of horror. He lets Det. Dixon look through the eyepiece.

Det. Dixon's expression goes shocked too.

We switch to what the camcorder is showing, complete with DATE/TIME

etcetera. We see the ceiling and the camcorder out of control as we

did earlier when Christopher was attacked. The camcorder falls to

the floor with Christopher. For a brief instant we can see Kevin 2

before camcorder records the floor.

Det. Dixon (freaked out) - Who on Earth was that?

Parker (smiling) - The guy with the Halloween mask? I'll

try to get a freeze frame of him so

we can get a description.

Parker plays about until successful. Shows results to Det. Dixon.

Parker - How does this grab you?

Det. Dixon (sees in viewer) - That's exactly what we need. Do you

know anyone who might recognise this

little twerp?

Parker (excited) - Perhaps. There's some grad parties

going on in the park near here. Some

of the beer buds might identify who it

is. That okay?

Det. Dixon (smiles) - You'll make a sleuth yet. Let's go!


Scene 31. Someone's backyard.

From a shed, a rustling sound is heard. Then, the door opens and

Kevin 3 steps out. He is holding a giant knife, an axe, some rope,

and a circular saw blade. His hands are covered in blood. As he

walks from the shed, we see the battered body of the shed owner. He

has been chopped up and left in a flower bed near the shed.


Scene 32. Grad party park.

Det. Dixon's car comes to a stop. Parker and he see Wes, Alfred,

Bela and Boris drinking coolers and Bailey's around a campfire. The

four boys are also tearing up school books and burning them. Det.

Dixon walks up to the foursome and hands them a ticket.

Alfred (incensed) - What's this for, man?

Det. Dixon (self-satisfied) - I have a funny feeling none of you is

over eighteen. I am, however, prepared

to overlook it if you can cooperate

with some questions I'm going to ask.

Wes (upset) - Fine, but hurry up, eh? I gotta make

the next round of shooters.

Det. Dixon - I have prepared a sketch of a young

person. Because of the Young Offenders

Act, I cannot name him, but I am

wondering if you people can?

Camera gives a hint that they are being watched. Hand-held POV

through some bushes. Twigs snap. The five men around the fire turn

and look. See nothing. Det. Dixon pulls out his gun and charges at

the place where the sound came. Pulls out Parker.

Det. Dixon (outraged) - What were you doing? Get over here.

They join the fireside party. Bela gets up.

Bela (pats tummy) - I'm gonna get the smokies.

Bela heads off. He is in foreground. In background, we see Det.

Dixon showing his sketch of Kevin 2 again. Camera work suggests

creepy situation for Bela; that he is being watched.

Bela opens the car door and rummages for the food. Low-angle shot

showing feet approaching on the other side of the car. Someone is

nearing Bela. Suddenly, Bela turns to see. It is only Boris.

Bela (relieved) - Oh, man, you scared the hell outta me.

Where's the ketchup?

Boris opens his mouth to speak and blood pours out. He falls on the

car. In his back is the axe Kevin 3 took from the shed. Bela freaks.

He drops the food and runs away from the car. Trips over the rope

Kevin 3 stole. It is set up as a trip wire. He looks up from on his

back. He sees Kevin 3 standing over him. Kevin 3 drives his foot

down onto Bela's head and crushes Bela's skull. Brain and blood

squash out all over Kevin 3's boot. Gross suction sound as Kevin 3

lifts his foot and walks away. Bela's head is unrecognisable.

Meanwhile, Det. Dixon is still chatting with Alfred and Wes. He

turns to Parker.

Det. Dixon - Parker, you mind going back to the car

and getting my tape recorder?

Parker jogs off to get it. Det. Dixon turns to Alfred.

Det. Dixon - Now you say that this person may be

someone from Ian Briggs High?

Alfred (hesitantly) - Yes, it may just be Kev--

Suddenly, a saw blade comes flying through the air and embeds into

Alfred's skull. He screams and falls back dead.

Wes - Holy Christ, what was that?

Det. Dixon (looks about) - Someone came, sawed, and conquered.

Keep low.

Det. Dixon pulls out his gun. Sound of breaking glass. Shot of Kevin

3's hand smashing a beer bottle. It is now jagged and deadly.

Det. Dixon - Stay put. That sound came from over

there. I'm gonna check it out.

Det. Dixon leaves. Wes is alone and looking frightened. Camera quick

cuts different shots of the forest to suggest claustrophobia. He

backs up against a tree. Suddenly, a rope comes across his neck and

begins to choke him.

Wes' neck is fastened to the tree trunk. He keeps gurgling in pain.

Another shot of a hand with a broken bottle. It is impaled into Wes'

stomach. He horks up blood and dies, the bottle rammed through him.

Parker returns. Det. Dixon sees him. A shape behind Parker.

Det. Dixon (horrified) - Parker, behind you!

Parker is grabbed by Kevin 3. They struggle, crashing to the ground.

Det. Dixon runs up and jams his gun against Kevin 3's head.

Det. Dixon (butch) - Alright, you bastard, stay still.






Scene 33. Det. Dixon's car.

Kevin 3 is in the back of the car, handcuffed. Parker is watching

Det. Dixon drawing some truth serum from a bottle into a syringe. He

inserts the syringe into Kevin 3's arm. A shot from Kevin 3's POV,

going in and out of focus.

Det. Dixon (to Parker) - The truth serum should pump through

him in seconds. It should also pacify

him somewhat. I'll get the mask of the

creep. You get my ink pad.

Det. Dixon begins slowly pulling the mask off. Kevin 3 struggles in

vain. The mask comes off. Insp. Walrustitty's face glares at them.

Some slight signs of facial deterioration. Det. Dixon is stunned.

Parker (with ink pad) - You were right about being a creep.

What kind of cop is he?

Kevin 3 (bitterly) - I am not a cop. I am Kevin!

Parker (shocked) - Look at his neck! There are crude

stitches all over. It's like he sewed

his head together.

Det. Dixon (perplexed) - Perplexing. Walrustitty was bigger

than this too. This is the body of a

teenager. What's going on here?

Det. Dixon takes the ink pad. He reaches for Kevin 3's fingers and

manages to ink them. He presses a sheet of paper on them and gets

five prints. He hands the sheet to Parker.

Det. Dixon - Recorder on.

Det. Dixon hops in the driver's seat. He starts the car and they

drive off. Parker starts the recorder recording.

Det. Dixon (fake friendly) - Kevin you say, eh, sir? Who are you


Kevin 3 (forward/reverse) - I am Kevin! Nivek ma I! We are the

power of death! Htaed fo rewop eht era

ew! Do not mock me lest you perish

too. Oot hsirep uoy tsel em kcom ton

od. I shall graduate yet. Tey etaudarg

llahs I.

Det. Dixon (from the hip) - That's quite the speech impediment you

got there, Kev. It's also a very bad

attitude. I've got you for the deaths

of two boys, and possibly many others.

I'm going to see that you're locked up

at taxpayers' expense for the 3-year

maximum you're gonna get!

Parker (shows fingerprints) - Detective Dixon! These fingerprints!

They look...familiar. I think they're

my sister's!

Det. Dixon (gobsmacked) - Your sister's? Has this guy been

borrowing body parts? This is the

strangest case I've ever been on!

Kevin 3 is looking yuckier. He groans in pain, doubles over, and


Det. Dixon (serious) - I've got a couple friends at the down-

town precinct. We'll get this foul

maggot into custody as fast as possi-

ble, then disinfect my car after that.

Shot of the car driving down a road.


Scene 34 (A). Downtown near Stephen Avenue Mall.

Det. Dixon's car pulls to a stop at a red light. In back seat, we

see Kevin 3's eyes shoot open. Then, we notice that the handcuffs

are broken off. Kevin 3's face is really awful looking, and his

hands are all blistery and grim looking too.

Kevin 3 notices the car stopped and springs up. He opens the back

door, rolls out and opens Parker's door before he and Det. Dixon

know what's hit them. Kevin 3 yanks Parker out of the car and begins

to hustle him down Stephen Avenue.

Det. Dixon hops out and chases them. Kevin 3 is weak and hasn't

gotten far. Det. Dixon grabs Parker, but Kevin 3 holds on. They each

pull Parker towards themselves. Parker cries in pain. Det. Dixon

lets go of his end and this causes Parker and Kevin 3 to go tumbling

onto the ground. Parker is stunned and lies there. Kevin 3 gets up.

Det. Dixon punches Kevin 3 once, then twice, then three times in the

face. No effect. Kevin 3 stands there, then points both hands at

Det. Dixon as if he is casting a spell. QUICK INSERT OF TEDDY

GLOWING GREEN. Det. Dixon is lifted in the air, levitates in places,

then is sent flying through the air against a building. He is

severely wounded.

Kevin 3 (inspects himself) - The truth serum! Truth is alien to me.

It is weakening me. It is destroying

me. I must begin the ceremony.

He grabs Parker and heads him away from Det. Dixon, who is lying

against the wall, woozy and groggy. As Kevin 3 and Parker runs past

various people, they all turn and stare, scream, and generally get

out of the way.

Det. Dixon revives and struggles to his feet. He looks but cannot

see Kevin 3 nor Parker. He returns to his car. He plays the tape.

Det. Dixon (irritated) - What did that guy say about a

graduation? I can't remember. It was


He rubs his head in pain. He plays the tape. IT IS SILENT.

Det. Dixon (stunned) - It recorded. I know it did. I knew my

ex was a witch, but I didn't think she

taught him anything!


Scene 34 (B).

Kevin 3 is out of breath and wheezing as he hustles Parker down

Virgil's famous alleyway. They pass by the famous garbage container.

Parker notices how weak Kevin 3 is, and breaks free of Kevin 3's

grip. Parker punches Kevin 3 in the stomach. Kevin 3 doubles over

and Parker knees him in the face.

Kevin 3 is bleeding profusely from his nose and mouth. Parker grabs

him and hurls him viciously into the garbage container, like a

wrestler being hurled into a turn buckle. This causes Kevin 3's arm

to separate from his shoulder and land SPLAT! on the pavement. Kevin

3 slides down to the pavement, apparently dazed. Parker runs off.

Kevin 3 grabs his severed arm and sticks it to his shoulder. IT

MELDS TOGETHER BACK TO NORMAL. Growling in rage, Kevin 3 pursues



Parker runs past the Mac's store on 11th Avenue/5th Street. He looks

at the downward sloping ramp leading to the underground parking at

Dixon's office. Parker jams the door opener key into its slot.

Parker (frightened) - Dixon told me if I was ever in trouble

to use his special key and get my car.

I think this qualifies as trouble.

The door opens and he dashes down into the underground parking. He

runs past the rows of pillars and cars. The garage door closes, but

we see a pair of feet, telling us a second figure has slipped in.

Parker is searching around, panic-like, for his car. It is dark and

quiet. Echoes. Suddenly, he hears a noise. He looks around. The

place is empty. Up ahead, he sees a shadow on the wall. Parker is

somewhat nervous, looks behind himself in paranoia, and looks

forward again. This time Kevin 3 is there!

Parker begins running and searching for his car. Several wobbly

hand-held POV shots to suggest this. Parker looks back. Kevin 3

walks after him, stalking his prey.

Parker reaches his car and fumbles with his keys. In nervousness, he

drops them. Kevin 3 is walking closer and closer...Parker grabs his

keys and inserts them into the lock. He turns to look at Kevin 3's

progress. HE HAS VANISHED. Parker opens his door and is about to

step inside when Kevin 3 jumps from behind a pillar and pins

Parker's arm with the door. Sound of bone crunching. Parker grunts

in pain. Kevin 3, yucky face and all, smiles.

Kevin 3 - Unparking your car...Parker? I think

you will have an unplanned passenger.

(Nasty) Get in.


Scene 35. Virgil Pembury's house.

For the first time, it is revealed where Kevin's grad ceremony is:

Virgil's basement. They go through Virgil's front door and down into

the basement. Kevin 3 is really gross, with green gunge dripping

from his mouth and eyes and nose. His hands are bubbling blood out

of the veins. Panting, he grabs a new mask and puts it on. Slowly,

he recovers. Several dissolve shots (like in Star Trek) showing his

condition going back to normal.

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 dinner.


Scene 36. McDonald's.

Shot starts with a closeup of a student eating a Big Mac (to edit

with the "after dinner" line) with Det. Dixon approaching out of

focus, then into focus, in background. He has a meal of a hamburger,

a shake, and fries. He sits alone.

Det. Dixon (eating fries) - This food sucks, but the students come

here. They hear things we adults

don't. I hope this pays off.

He looks over at a group of people eating. He nibbles on a french

fries then nearly gags. IT IS A HUMAN FINGER COVERED IN BLOOD. He

throws it down and grimaces. He stares at the box of fries. THEY ARE

ALL HUMAN FINGERS. Slowly, they dissolve into normal food. Det.

Dixon strains to listen to students discussing something. Hears:

(drinks shake) - I've heard it's happening again. My

parents want to move away.

(bites burger) - My parents think it's that Markson

guy. Maybe even his whole family!

Det. Dixon scowls in concentration. He sips some more shake and

spits it out. He takes off the lid and looks in. Inside, it is all

blood, bubbling. An eye floats to the top.

Closeup of Det. Dixon going "uuughhhh!". Then, a hand plants down

onto his shoulder. He jumps, startled.

Mr. Biggles (pleasantly) - Hey, Dick, remember me?

Det. Dixon (strains memory) - You're Biggles, the math teacher at

the school, ain'tcha? No more inci-

dents with protractors, I hope?

Mr. Biggles (still happy) - You here investigating the killings?

Det. Dixon (sarcastic) - Actually, I'm eating. (5th Doctor-ish)

Mr. Biggles (undeterred) - Knowing you, that means yes. People

around here seem to think it's Kevin

Markson. My math 30 summer class

calculated the odds at 7:4 against.

Det. Dixon (discards meal) - This Markson. You know where he lives?

Mr. Biggles (smiles) - Not lives. Lived. I'll show you if it

will help. You want to arrest him?

Det. Dixon (snarling) - The thought had crossed my mind.

Mr Biggles (darkly) - As a hobby, I researched some of his

bizarre past. I think you should be

told before you prepare to take him

on. These terrible things should only

be spoken of on hallowed ground.

Det. Dixon (checks watch) - I really don't have time to waste...

Mr. Biggles (encouraging) - A stitch in time saves nine...

Det. Dixon (glowering) - I only have to save one.

Mr. Biggles (like a priest) - May the results not weigh heavy on

your mind.

Det. Dixon (grimly) - Fine! Take me.

They leave the store.


Scene 37. Virgil's basement.

Start closeup of Kevin 3's face.

Kevin 3 (silent but strong) - Be seated.

Parker surveys the table. It is stacked with fine dining stuff,

tablecloth, and various corpses of earlier victims. Reluctantly, he

seats himself. He glares at Kevin 3.

Kevin 3 (pleased) - Excellent. Just one more article...


Scene 38. A church. (Note -- alternate can be Devonian Gardens)

Start with a very high shot from front of church showing its

magesty. In the very rear of the shot are two small figures: Det.

Dixon and Mr. Biggles walking in. They approach the altar and Mr.

Biggles gets down on his knees and does the RC prayer thing.

(Intercut of Kevin 3 putting on grad cloak. We don't know it's him.)

(Intercut of Det. Dixon looking at Mr. Biggles, bored and impatient)

(Intercut of Parker, looking terrified and frightened.)

(Intercut of Mr. Biggles, closeup, holding a Bible and kissing it.)

(Intercut of Kevin 3, closeup, kissing Teddy, as previous shot.)

Mr. Biggles gets up and leads Det. Dixon to a pew. There they sit.

Det. Dixon is still impatient and fidgety.

Det. Dixon (whispers, firm) - Please, Mr. Biggles, I need to know

your findings. I must hurry and rescue

my client. How else will I be paid?

Besides, he's a nice kid.

Mr. Biggles (severely) - Kevin Markson is an agent of Satan.

But more importantly, he was impaired

by a time machine built by students in

my school last year.

Det. Dixon (scowling) - Impaired? Time machine? Whaddaya mean?

Mr. Biggles - Kevin is now a composite body of

several recent victims. He needed the

limbs to reconstruct himself. His body

was splintered throughout various

times, and each splinter must kill to

reaffirm its existence. The Kevin you

are dealing with has terrible and

unimaginable powers.

Det. Dixon - You seem to know this guy well. What

do you think he's doing with Parker?

Mr. Biggles (reverently) - The Prophet spake of the Day of Judge-

ment. To students, that Day is the mo-

ment of their Graduation. Kevin hasn't

had Judgement bestowed upon him. The

spirit that created his new body is 9

years ahead of where it belongs. Thus,

he has gone beyond the Day of his Gra-

duation. Kevin bypassed his Judgement!

He'll try to repair that travesty!

Det. Dixon - I don't like the sound of that! Come

on, you must show me where he lived!

Det. Dixon leads Mr. Biggles out of the church.


Scene 39. Virgil's basement.

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 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 40. Det. Dixon's car.

Det. Dixon and Mr Biggles are near Kevin's house. They drive towards

Kevin's abandoned house. Suddenly, Mr. Biggles starts choking and

has trouble breathing. Det. Dixon stops the car.

Det. Dixon (looks over) - Bad lunch for you too, huh?

Mr Biggles turns to look at Det. Dixon. For a couple seconds it is

Kevin from Part 7 turning to look at Det. Dixon. It is Mr Biggles

again. Blood leaks from his eyes and nose. He goobers blood over his

shirt. He is dead. Det. Dixon reaches over him and opens the

passenger door.

Det. Dixon (grimly) - Don't want you ruining the upholstery.

Next is a low shot from outside, looking into the car. Det. Dixon

rolls the body out towards the camera and onto the pavement below.

Det. Dixon shuts the door and drives to Kevin's house. He parks the

car and sits there. He stares thoughtfully at Kevin's house from his

car window. He sees City of Calgary inspector Perkins leaving the

front porch towards his vehicle.

Det. Dixon (calls from car) - Excuse me, may I have a word with you?

Perkins (steps up to car) - Yes?

Det. Dixon (fingers house) - Who lives in that house?

Perkins (shakes head) - I dunno. My information says it's been

abandoned for nearly 7 years. The City

declared it terra non grata. Condemned

it. Psycho house or something.

Det. Dixon (scowling) - Then why are you here?

Perkins (bewildered) - According to our wattage diagnostics

computers, there has been a daily

average electrical consumption of

nearly 4.29 gigawatts. That'll power a

few toasters!

Det. Dixon (confused) - How can an abandoned house use enough

power to illuminate half of the city?

Perkins - That's what I'm trying to discover. It

hadn't occurred to me that there would

be no one in an abandoned house to let

me in.

Det. Dixon (leaves car) - That's why I'm here. I was once the

chief doorman at the Westin y'know.

Follow me.

Det. Dixon leads Perkins to the front entrance. Tries the handle. It

is locked. Steps back, runs at door and smashes it open.

Perkins (perplexed) - Did they teach you that at the Westin?

Det. Dixon (dirty look) - You're in. Your welcome. Now I want

you to find me the machine using that


They looks about, fruitlessly. They descend downstairs and their

eyes light up. (Literally).

Perkins (pleased) - Well whattaya know! An electropneuma-

tic flux dampener! I read about these

things in Popular Science when I was

in school.

They slowly approach it, and grimace at the blood and leftover body


Perkins (disgusted) - They never mentioned stuff like this

in that magazine. What's going on?

Det. Dixon (miserable) - The crime of the century. A madman

returning from death by way of death.

Perkins (nearly ill) - You could use this machine to convert

different energy forms into usable

electrical currents.

Det. Dixon (snapping) - Death energy?

Perkins - I dunno. What's its amperage? I'd


Suddenly Perkins convulses and is thrown against a wall. He begins

twitching and going bug eyed. Det. Dixon rushes to help, but cannot

peel Perkins arms from the wall. Det. Dixon fires his gun at the

electropneumatic flux dampener, but that does not help. Perkins

starts to scream, and suddenly his face covers with blood. So too

his hands and arms. His shirt begins to soak in blood from his


Suddenly he begins to spray volumes of blood from his mouth. It

showers the opposite wall. Suddenly, Perkins is released from the

wall. He crashes to the floor, dead. Slowly he vanishes, leaving

just a puddle of green gunge on the floor.

Det. Dixon looks at the wall Perkins spewed on. In bloody letters is

written: PEMBURY. Det. Dixon eyes the wall in contempt and suspicion

then dashes upstairs and to his car. He squeals off at full steam.


Scene 41. Virgil's basement.

Kevin 3 stands near an altar. On it is the body of Teddy. He strokes

it gently, then glares at Parker with hatred.

Kevin 3 (venomously) - You fear me. And so you should. For

behold what I have created!

Kevin 3 waves his arm slowly (like a magician). Parker turns to see.

The table, and its corpses and ornaments, are still the same.

Parker (frightened) - Wh-what? What should I see?

Kevin 3 (growling in rage) - I bring death of life. So too I bring

life of death!

Kevin 3 turns to see his magic at work. **The corpses are now alive

and well, chatting and drinking, having a good time.** Parker looks

back at Kevin 3, then at the table again. Still he sees dead,

unmoving corpses.

Parker (more defiant) - You've done no such thing!

Kevin 3 is furious. He slaps Parker with a backhand, then storms

over to the table. He grabs a severed hand from a plate and raises

it to his mouth. **Continuation of previous shot, shows Kevin 3

raising and chewing on a leg of lamb.** Kevin 3 grabs a severed arm

and slits it with a table knife. Blood pours out of it into a goblet

covered in cobwebs. **Kevin 3 raises a glass of sparkling red wine

to his lips and drinks from it**

Kevin 3 (sudden thought) - You must dine with us. Come, your food

is getting cold.

Kevin 3 snaps his fingers, and Perkins, now a waiter, comes with a

large covered plate.

Kevin 3 (gracious) - Nouvelle cuisine, monsieur?

Kevin 3 bows to Perkins who prepares to serve the meal to Parker.

Kevin 3 looks on and smiles. **Everyone is eating and laughing and

drinking. A couple get up to dance.**

Parker grimaces in horror as two corpses slide off the table and

onto the floor. Kevin 3 rushes over to pick the female (Margot) up.

**Kevin 3 (to woman dancer) - Mademoiselle, I would be delighted

to dance with you! But first, we must

have music!

Kevin 3 claps his hands and from nowhere an orchestra plays a tango

and Kevin 3 and Margot begin to dance around the table.**

A shot of Teddy on the altar. Same as before.

Parker looks, sickened, at Kevin 3 dragging Margot's corpse around

the table, clumsily. He turns his attention to Perkins, who is about

to take the lid off the plate and reveal Parker's dinner. The plate

is lifted, and Christopher's head, the skin peeled off it, blood and

arteries everywhere, lies in a pool of congealed blood. Parker

screams and tries to push it away.

Kevin 3 looks over, displeased. **He sees a beautiful roast beef

dinner, with trimmings.

Kevin 3 (drops corpse) - That was very rude! You must be

punished! Table manners such as yours

have no place at a function such as

(majestic) this. I have gone to great lengths to

ensure we have a graduation to end all

(nasty) graduations. And you, you whiny little

brat, are endeavoring to disrupt my


Kevin 3 is furious. He grabs a handful of mashed potatoes from

Parker's plate and shoves them at Parker's mouth.**


Parker tries to fight off Kevin 3 feeding him the head's eyeballs

and skin. He loses the struggle. Kevin 3 forces the disgusting

remains into Parker's mouth, but Parker manages to spit them out.

Teddy remains still, but camera hints this won't be for long...

Scene 42. Det. Dixon's car. Det. Dixon is on his walkie-talkie.

Det. Dixon (hurried) - That's the address? Right, I'll be

there shortly. I'll need an armed

escort of several men. Situation is

extreme. I repeat, extreme. Requesting

backup. Full force to be used. Out!

The car speeds on.


Scene 43. Virgil's basement.

Parker has been tied onto the table. He is now the centrepiece. He

stares about him in panic as the various corpses are seen lying with

limbs touching him. The basement is now decorated with streamers and

balloons, and Kevin 3 wears a party hat.

Parker (hysterical) - What are you doing! Release me! I

haven't done you any harm!

Kevin 3 is shown standing near Teddy, clenching a large knife. He

studies Teddy, then looks up, angrily, at Parker.

Kevin 3 (miserable) - But I intend to cause you harm!

Painful, fatal harm.

(walks slowly to Parker) - I was recreated through the deaths of

others. It follows that so too shall

Teddy be resurrected.

**Kevin 3 closes in on Parker. The corpses look on and start to clap

their hands slowly, together, as if at a sports event. They chant

"Kevin! Kevin! Kevin!" synchronous with the clapping. Kevin 3 ack-

nowledges them by clenching and raising his hands in a championship

signal. Then, he turns to Parker and places the knife on Parker's

outstretched arm. He slowly drags it across the skin and opens a

wound. Parker screams, then controls the pain.**

Parker (pained) - I shall destroy you, Kevin. You won't

evade justice!

Kevin 3 (sneering) - No one shall stop me! I have my army!

Parker looks down the table at the corpses strewn along it. Slowly,

they begin to rise and slither towards Parker. Parker now sees the

corpses alive even in his point of view. Kevin 3 dashes to Teddy.

Kevin 3 (triumphantly) - I can make the dead rise to life. From

life to death to undeath! Oh, Teddy,

hear my call! Answer my pleas! Join me

to ravage this planet!

Teddy appears as he always has, dead and unmoving. Offscreen, Parker

hollers in terror. Suddenly, Teddy's eyes glow. Meanwhile, Parker is

draped by three or four corpses. Each of the corpses holds a fork

and knife like daggers. They raise them and prepare to strike.

Kevin 3 (backgrnd of shot) - My friends. Dinner is served!

The corpses are about to strike when a gunshot is heard. A bullet

enters the back of Perkins' head, spraying goop and blood all over

the opposite wall. Kevin 3 looks in fury and raises his knife. Det.

Dixon looks over and shoots Kevin 3's knife hand. Several fingers

are blown off (like Davros) and the knife clatters to the ground.

Kevin 3 holds his bleeding hand in pain. Blood drips from his wound

onto Teddy's altar. IT IS EMPTY. Kevin 3 is temporarily grounded.

The three remaining corpses turn from Parker to Det. Dixon, now

rushing down the stairs. Parker freaks out. Kevin 3 comes to him.

Parker (frantic) - Dixon! Untie me! Hurry!

Dixon is blocked by the corpses. He guns one down and smashes his

gun onto another. As the third corpse smothers him, he manages to

fire two shots, each obliterating one of the ropes binding Parker's

hands. Parker shakes off the snapped ropes and reaches for his bound

feet. As he reaches, Kevin 3 grabs him and pulls him back down.

Parker gasps in terror.

Det. Dixon pushes away the corpse on him and runs forward. As he

does, he steps on a downed corpse, causing green goop to shoot out

of its mouth. He fires once more at Kevin 3, who is strangling Par-

ker with his one good hand. Kevin 3 takes a shot to the eye. It is

shown, a big blotch of skin and blood. Blood all over that half of

his mask. Kevin 3 is hurtled against the wall.

Det. Dixon (panting) - Quick, kid, untie yourself. I got two

more of these dead guys to kill.

Parker begins to untie his leg bonds. He notices that a corpse is

rising behind Dixon. Parker grabs a table knife and hurls it at the

corpse. We hear it squeal. Det. Dixon whirls around to be face to

face with the corpse, now wearing a knife in its mouth. It pukes

up goop and falls backwards.

Parker (screaming) - One more! Beside you!

Det. Dixon faces the last one and rams his gun into its mouth. Side

shot shows him pulling the trigger and goop flying from the back of

its neck. The last corpse drops. Det. Dixon runs to Parker, who has

untied himself and sits up.

Parker (relieved) - How did you find me?

Det. Dixon (puzzled) - That corpse there--Perkins--was killed

in my company at Kevin's laboratory.

The name Pembury was written with his

blood. I take it this is where Pembury

killed his family?

Parker (nods grimly) - This was a house of pain and death.

Kevin thought he could revive some

stupid teddy bear. Is Kevin dead?

They turn and look. Kevin 3 is gone.

Det. Dixon (cursing) - Where'd he go? Right under our noses!

A sound of something dropping upstairs. They look up.

Parker (excited) - Let's get him!

They race upstairs. There, they see Kevin 3 armed with a hammer.

Kevin 3 whirls around to face them. He doesn't look too well.

Kevin 3 - Mere mortals cannot stop me! I have

the legions of Hell as my bodyguard!

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 remaining hand. Parker can see a ring on it.

Parker (aghast) - 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 invisible.

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 begins punching

him. Kevin 3 retreats from the barrage and tries raising the hammer

he has in his injured hand. Parker smashes it to the floor.

Det. Dixon has been trying to reload his gun, but suddenly it goes

flying out of his hand by an invisible force. He is forced to the

ground. He looks about the floor in fear and surprise. He just sees

Kevin and Parker fighting. Then, he sees...something. He opens his

mouth in horror and tries to backtrack on the floor away from it. He

ducks something and dives for his gun. He is about to reach it when

something pulls him backwards away from it. He goes screaming.

Meanwhile, Parker is strangling Kevin 3 and Kevin 3 grows weaker.

Parker shoves Kevin 3 to the floor and grabs the hammer. Kevin 3's

hands suddenly shoot up and grip the hammer. He and Parker struggle

for it, but Parker loses. Kevin 3 grips it and prepares to aim it up

at Parker's head. Parker stares 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,

please respond!

Kevin 3 reacts slightly, as if convulsing.

Parker (hopeful) - That's right, Carol! Fight for me, not

against me. Fight for me! Yes, do it!

Kevin 3 slowly slides one hand to each end of the hammer. Slowly the

hammer presses down on his throat. Kevin 3 is choking himself and

coughs up some blood as a result. Kevin 3 gasps in misery, when

suddenly he overcomes Carol's resistance and threatens Parker once

more. Parker manages to wrestle the hammer away from Kevin 3.

Det. Dixon sees something flying at him and ducks. Again, he ducks

as it comes from a different direction. He looks about, trying to

see what it is and where it will come from next. Then, he spots it.

Parker sits above Kevin 3 and smashes the hammer down repeatedly

into Kevin 3's stomach. Blood spouts out of wounds in his abdomen.

Kevin 3, weakly, tries to show Parker Carol's ring.

Kevin 3 (whispering) - She's mine now. It's mine now...

Parker sees the ring, his face gets ugly, and in more rage swings

down on Kevin 3's arm. The arm snaps in half and bends 45o between

the wrist and elbow. Sound of bone crunching. Kevin 3 collapses.

Det. Dixon looks over. His danger appears over now too. He slowly

goes over to comfort Parker and handcuffs Kevin 3. Parker stops him

from doing so.

Parker (bitterly) - We don't deserve to have him incarcer- ated. It does nothing for us.

Det. Dixon (looks unsure) - You don't mean. (Looks at gun)

Parker (emphatic) - We must. We must be certain he won't

ever return. Ever.

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.

They leave.

Scene 44. Detective Dixon's office.

Det. Dixon and Parker are relaxing, eating more doughnuts. Det.

Dixon puts his food down and looks ill.

Parker (quizzical) - Not hungry?

Det. Dixon - I'm not feeling so well.

Parker (puts his food down) - Nor am I. Who could be after these

terrible events. My sister...

Det. Dixon gets up and walks away. Parker looks confused. Det. Dixon

returns with his trophy gun from his bookshelf seen earlier. Parker

looks questioningly. 35

Det. Dixon (friendly) - You were really brave back there kid.

I know how much this piece impressed


Parker smiles and reaches expectantly.

Det. Dixon (nastier) - So I want you to have it.

Det. Dixon fires the gun at Parker. Parker loses top half of his

head. Parker looks up, betrayed, then dies.

Det. Dixon puts the gun down slowly, then winces in pain. He

collapses onto his back on his desk and begins to struggle against

throwing up. Then, he heaves violently and pukes a tremendous amount

of greenish-blue chunky, foamy gunk. A shot of his stomach, and

something is pushing his shirt in and out. Suddenly, blood appears

and his stomach opens to reveal...Teddy.

Teddy (victorious) - He couldn't bear to have me! My

vengeance has only just begun...!

Teddy crawls out and runs off. A closing shot of Det. Dixon, dead on

his desk.


Scene 45. Virgil's living room.

A slow dolly into Kevin, showing all the blood and his battered

body. Camera slowly pans up from his feet to his head. Suddenly, his

one good eye opens wide.
