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
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
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.
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
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
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
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...
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
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 plan...my mission...must not fail.
I must pass...my 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
Kevin (bitter) - Destroying Carol wasn't enough. No,
she must help me return from the
vortex. Soon, they shall all pay for
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
realism...so 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'
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
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
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 perhaps...it 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
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
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.
TRANSITION: AS SCENE 23 (A) ENDS, WE PULL OUT OF LEFT SKULL EYE, SEE
THE INTRO'S GRAD SKULL, THEN ZOOM THRU THE RIGHT SKULL EYE TO SCENE
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 all...an 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
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
TEDDY FOUNTAINING BLOOD FROM HIS HEAD.
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?
Parker (looks to far wall) - What were you doing over there? With
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
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
TO SHOW THE BLOOD FROM HIS HEAD FLOWING BACK IN.
Kevin 3 spies a mirror. He admires his new head.
Kevin 3 (creepily) - From death to life. And now, from good
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,
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
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
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.
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.
TRANSITION: CAMERA PULLS OUT THROUGH RIGHT GRAD SKULL EYE. WE SEE
GRAD SKULL. IT IS BLEEDING FROM ITS FOREHEAD (BULLET WOUND). WE ZOOM
THROUGH THE BULLET HOLE TO SCENE 33. SCENE 33 STARTS OFF RED, WHICH
FADES, TO SUGGEST WE HAVE TRAVELLED THROUGH BLOOD.
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
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
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
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
Scene 34 (C). AT PETROGAS UNDERGROUND PARKING LOT (DIXON'S OFFICE):
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
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
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
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
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
Det. Dixon (leaves car) - That's why I'm here. I was once the
chief doorman at the Westin y'know.
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
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
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,
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
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
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) - 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 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,
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.
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
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.
