EXT. LOS ANGELES – NIGHT YOU MAKE ME FEEL... BY COBRA STARSHIP roars out of the club in front of us. The night is full of life and people are standing around, clearly drunk. INT. CLUB – DANCE FLOOR People are dancing all around to the music. It’s the night life. FUN. We pan in on a girl. Mid 20s, hot. MEGAN BOOME. She’s dancing with 2 others around her. She smiles and flings around her hair in a seductive way. She then stops and looks around. She mumbles something to her friends we can’t hear because of the music. She walks away and sits at the bar. She looks at the menu on the bar. She rubs her aching neck. BESIDE HER comes a man. We can’t see his full face. Megan looks startled. MAN Sorry, sorry. I didn’t mean to do that. MEGAN Oh, it’s all right. I’m just a little jumpy. MAN Oh, that’s a shame. This club is full of creeps. No way to be positive who you’re talking to. There’s a long pause. Megan looks at the mysterious man. She then laughs, trying to break the silence. The man laughs, too. MAN (CONT’D) Let me buy you a drink. MEGAN Oh, no I – MAN You came to a club to stare at the cocktails. Really?
2 (he laughs) Please. It’d be my pleasure. One drink. MEGAN Uh- All right. OK. MAN All right. (to bartender) Two Sex on the Beach drinks, please. BARTENDER Comin’ right up. MAN Thank you. The man slipped the bartender a $20. He took it and stuffed it into his pocket. The song changes to COME ON AND GET IT BY DJ DAN Megan is sidetracked digging in her purse, back to the two men. The mysterious man pulls the bartender to his mouth and says something in his ear. Megan then turns back as the bartender pulls away from the man. She smiles at the mysterious man. MEGAN Thank you. MAN No problem. Megan smiles again. MEGAN
3 So... what’s your name? Or is it Mysterious Man? The man laughs. MAN Something like that. ZOOM IN TO: The bartender. His back is to the two mingling. He has two cocktails in his hands. Only one, is different. It fizzes, as is he put a drug in there. The bartender turns back and sets the two drinks on the bar. He smiles at the two, who seem to be hitting it off. MEGAN Thank you, again. MAN Please, it’s my pleasure. Megan smiles and sips back the drink. The man sips back his. We see his mouth turn to a grisly smile. The screen goes wobbly. She’s drunk. CUT TO BLACK. MEGAN (V.O) Ugh. INT. CLUB – BACK ROOM Megan gets up off of the floor. She’s holding her head. She looks around and sees no one. The music is not identifiable. MEGAN Oh... fuck. She stands up, wobbly. Too drunk to do anything. MAN
4 Hi, Megan. Megan turns around, startled. She looks at the man, who is still covered so we can’t see his face. MEGAN H – hi. Where...am...I? MAN The back room. MEGAN Why? MAN You said you wanted to come back here, and... hang out. Megan looks down at her shorts. They’re unbuttoned. MEGAN Shit. I’m sorry, I – MAN Don’t worry about it. We all do it. The man begins to remove his belt on his pants. MEGAN I... should go home, now. MAN OK. Megan made a weak smile. The man waved bye. She waved back and began to walk away, towards the door. THE MAN COMES UP BEHIND HER and wraps the belt around her throat! She had the door halfway open, but he stopped her! The door slammed shut. The man slams her onto the floor. She looks up, scared shitless.
5 MEGAN B – but – I MAN But nothing. It’s time. MEGAN Time for what? MAN This. The man pulls out a large butcher knife from behind his back. Megan lets out a small scream, and he is upon her. The knife is in her side. She grunts in pain. She looks down at the stab wound. MEGAN But... I fucked you. MAN No you didn’t. The man stabs her again in the stomach. MAN (CONT’D) I fucked you. The man raises the knife in the air, for the final strike. Megan’s eyes widen. She pulls out a pepper spray from her pocket and sprays the man in the eyes. He drops the knife onto the floor. It falls directly beside Megan’s face. She looks at the knife, and back at the man, who’s rubbing his eyes. Megan knees the man in the groin, making him fall. She grabs the knife, and lodges it into the man’s back. He grunts.
6 She runs to the door, and flings it open. She begins to run, but looks back. The man is gone. MEGAN Shit. Megan starts to quickly walk around. She looks around and realizes nobody’s in the club, anymore. She’s puzzled. She looks up at the clock, which says 4:56. TINK. Megan looks around. The man or anybody is nowhere to be seen. She looks forward and sees the front door. She makes a decision and runs for it. She pushes on it. Locked. Shit. She looks around and sees stairs that lead upstairs. She walks over to the stairs. INT. CLUB – UPSTAIRS Megan comes up the steps. She looks around. There’s moonlight flooding in through the windows. She walks over to the windows. Yes! Hope! There’s a loud scrape against the wall as the killer man comes up the steps! Megan’s eyes widen. She opens the window, and begins to climb out. Megan’s on the threshold of the club and the window. She’s holding onto the window. MEGAN (yelling out) Someone! Help me! He – The man slashes the knife out into the air. It almost hits Megan in the face. She screams and jumps off of the threshold. She crashes onto the dumpster down below. She looks above and the man is gone. She looks around at the garbage she’s in.
7 Megan sits up and grabs onto the side of the garbage. She pulls herself up, halfway out. RRUMMMM RRUMMMM RRUMMM Megan looks to her left and sees an ESCALADE is there. The person in it is rumming their engine. It’s HIM. Megan screams as the car begins to sped after her. She starts to pull her leg in the garbage but the car SMASHES it onto the side of the dumpster. Megan screams in pain. Nobody can hear her. They’re in an abandoned alleyway. Megan stands halfway in the dumpster. Her leg is bloody and half torn off. She’s crying, now. RRUMMMM RRUMMMM Megan looks and sees the car rumming again. She’s still crying. She tries to pull herself into the dumpster but can’t. She falls flat on the cement. The ESCALADE comes full speed! Megan screams at the top of her lungs. It pierces our souls. SPLAT! The car runs over Megan, flattening her face. Chunks of body fly into the camera giving us the 3D. CUT TO BLACK. TITLE: CLUB 3D TITLE: 2 DAYS LATER EXT. NEW YORK: MORNING The street is full of people in cars and bikes and walking, in general. It’s so busy. We pan in on a girl... Beautiful, brunette, 27. CARLY BOOME, Megan’s sister. Work-a-holic. Still pretty, but needs a massage from a Chinese lady, stat. She stands at a magazine stand. We zoom in...
8 Carly picks up PEOPLE magazine. She looks at the front cover saying something about teen mom. She rolls her eyes. She picks up Sports illustrated. She smiles. CARLY How much? She says to the cashier. CASHIER 3 dollars. Carly takes out 3 ones out of her purse, and hands it to the cashier. He smiles and she walks away. Up to her side comes TIFFANY, 24. Carly jumps, startled. TIFFANY Sorry! Jumpy much? CARLY Yeah, I guess so. They continue to walk down the road. TIFFANY So, how’s life? CARLY Good. TIFFANY Come on. I need more details. CARLY No I have not fucked a random guy I met at a bar, and no I’m not pregnant.
9 TIFFANY STD’s? CARLY All clear. TIFFANY Ugh. Then who am I gonna give this to? Tiffany reaches into her pocket. Carly pushes her arm down to stop her. CARLY No, no. Let’s not do that. Tiffany glares. CARLY No illegal substances in public, dummy. TIFFANY Who said it was illegal? Carly gives a look. TIFFANY I know, I know. Carly laughs. DING. An elevator door opens. INT. OFFICE BUILDING – LOUNGE Carly comes out of the elevator. She has a breifcase in her hands. The phones are ringing off the hooks, and people are running around in circles. INT. CARLY’S CUBICLE
10 Carly sits. She sets her things down around the space. She throws her hair back, and logs on to her computer. She scrolls down the page, and the computer dings. She clicks a button that says NEW MESSAGE. She reads it. It says Monique wants you in her office, pronto. Carly rolls her eyes. INT. MONIQUE’S OFFICE Carly comes into the room. She stands, clearly ready for whatever is going to happen. CARLY Monique, I heard you – MONIQUE Sh. Carly stands, silent. After a moment, we see what she sees. Monique, an older woman, peeks out from the side of her computer. MONIQUE Carly. CARLY Yes? MONIQUE Sit. Carly does as she is commanded. MONIQUE Now, you’re one of my best workers, here. CARLY Thank you, I – MONIQUE
11 But that also comes with consequence, Carly Boome. It means I want you to do more than the others, it means I need you to do more. CARLY I agree. MONIQUE Perfect. Since you agree, I need you to go to Boston for the weekend, and get me... Monique pulls out a magazine. The front cover has Alec Baldwin on it. MONIQUE (CONT’D) Him. CARLY (taking the magazine) Alec Baldwin? Whoa. MONIQUE Whoa, indeed. Now, I need you to go and get him, so he can come and promote this company. CARLY I’m on it. MONIQUE Perfect. Carly sits, staring at the magazine. MONIQUE Leave. Now. CARLY O – oh, yeah. Sorry. Carly exits the room as Monique picks up the phone.
12 INT. BUILDING – HALLWAY Carly closes the door, and exits. She walks down the hallway, and is greeted by EMILY, 23. EMILY What’d she want? CARLY Him. Carly flips out the magazine. EMILY Alec fucking Baldwin?! Emily snatches the magazine away. EMILY (CONT’D) No fucking way! CARLY Way. Carly takes the magazine back. Emily grins. EMILY Excellent. CARLY Agreed. Carly smiles. Emily laughs. EMILY Well, let’s get back to work. CARLY Psh. You... work?
13 EMILY Ugh! Emily socks Carly right in the right elbow. EMILY (CONT’D) I work. CARLY Whatever. Carly shakes her head in amusement and walks away. She laughs at herself, slightly. INT. CARLY’S CUBICLE Carly sits down in her cubicle. She looks at her phone, which is flashing a red dot. She furrows her brow and picks up the telephone. The screen says 2 MISSED CALLS. Carly shrugs and dials a number. She puts the phone up to her ear. After a moment, we hear: WOMAN (V.O) Carly! Where have you been? I’ve been calling like nuts! CARLY Mom, sorry, I was in Monique’s office, what’s up? MOM (V.O) Carly... Megan’s missing. Carly’s eyes widen. She’s shocked. CARLY What?! MOM (V.O)
14 She never went home, Carly. Me and her were supposed to meet up yesterday for lunch. She never showed. Carly’s eyes are no longer wide. She knows what it is. CARLY Well, are you sure she’s missing? She’s gone home with a guy before and not came home for 2 days, remember? MOM (V.O) I know, I know. But, it’s abnormal for her not to message me back or call, or anything! I’m worried Carly, I really am. CARLY Well, I don’t know what to say. I’ll text and call and see if I get her. MOM (V.O) Carly, I want you to come here to L.A. and help me find her. CARLY Mom, I can’t! I have to go to Boston tomorrow and get Alec Baldwin. MOM (V.O) Carly. Please. I – I – Carly’s mom pauses. MOM (V.O) (sobbing) Carly... I just want my girl back. Please, I – CARLY Mom, mom. Alright. I’ll come out. MOM (V.O) Carly, thank you! So much! I – I lo—
15 CARLY I love you too, mom. I’ll be out tomorrow. MOM (V.O) OK, honey. See you then. CARLY OK. The line goes dead. INT. LOS ANGELES: CARLY’S MOM’S HOUSE – DAWN Carly’s mom – a rather pretty woman, for her age of 47 – sits on a chair. She sets the phone down on the hook. She holds her hand where her heart is, sad. INT. COMPANY – CARLY’S CUBICLE – DAY Carly sighs and sets her hand in her palms. She rubs her temples, and stands up. She sees Emily. CARLY Emily! Pssst! Emily turns around and walks over to Carly. EMILY What? CARLY I need... help. EMILY What kind of help? CARLY Well, my sister’s missing. EMILY
16 Whoa! Are you serious!? CARLY Yeah. Mom just called. She’s been gone for 2 days. I’m supposed to go to L.A. and look for her, with my mom. Only, I have to tell Monique I can’t go to Alec Baldwin. EMILY Oh, shit. That’s tough. CARLY Yeah, advice? EMILY Just tell her! Your sister’s fucking missing. She can’t hold you back. Even if she says no, take personal time or sick time. You’ll still be paid. CARLY Oh dear God. OK, thanks. EMILY Welcome. Emily walks off in the opposite direction. Carly sighs and walks down to Monique’s office. INT. MONIQUE’S OFFICE Monique sits on the phone. MONIQUE No! Tell Randy he can shove that up his ass! We’re getting Alec fucking Baldwin! He can suck it. Monique slams the phone down on the hook. She’s fucking pissed. No time to deal with shit. KNOCK KNOCK. MONIQUE
17 Hello? CARLY Monique, It’s Carly I have – MONIQUE Carly, come in! The door opens. Carly comes in, tense. MONIQUE Carly, what’s wrong? You look like someone took a shit in your mouth. Carly furrows her brow. Is she high? CARLY Um, no, that didn’t happen. MONIQUE Then what did? Please, sit. Carly sits down. She’s almost shaking, she’s so scared. CARLY OK, so, my mom called, and my sister’s missing. MONIQUE What!? That’s terrible! Did she call the police? CARLY No, not yet. But, I need to go out there and help look for her. My mom is scared beyond belief, and she seems tense. I just need 2 personal days, and I’ll be back. MONIQUE Sure! When? CARLY Really? Um, tomorrow and Friday.
18 Monique stops. MONIQUE To...morrow? CARLY Yeah... MONIQUE Tomorrow’s Alec Baldwin. CARLY I know, and I feel awful, but I – MONIQUE Carly, let me explain something to you. (PAUSE) I don’t like to be disappointed. And when you disappoint me... Monique stares at Carly, scarily. MONIQUE Need I say more? CARLY No, no. But, I just need these two days and I’ll be back. Promise. Monique fiddles with her pen. She sets it on her lips, studying Carly. Carly still looks terrified. MONIQUE Alright, here’s what I’ll do. (PAUSE) You can have tomorrow and Friday off. CARLY
19 Thank you! I n— MONIQUE (CONT’D) If you get someone to substitute for you to get Alec here. Carly sits back. FUCK. CARLY OK. MONIQUE Get it done, kiddo. I know you can. CARLY Ok, I’ll do it. MONIQUE Good. Monique sits back, at ease. She chews her out of the room. Carly exits quickly. INT. COMPANY – HALLWAY Carly sits her head back on the door. Dang. EMILY How’d it go? CARLY She said I can go. EMILY What’s the catch? CARLY Someone has to substitute for getting Alec. EMILY
20 Ah. CARLY Yup. There’s silence. CARLY Wait. I know! EMILY What? CARLY (YELLING) HEY! WHOEVER GOES AND GETS ALEC BALDWIN TOMORROW GETS TO GO OUT WITH ME! Several guy hands go up. Emily raises and eyebrow. CARLY Works every time. Emily smiles. CUT TO BLACK: SMACK. A CAR HATCH DOOR CLOSES SHUT. EXT. OUTSIDE CARLY’S HOUSE – AFTERNOON Carly closed the car door. She smacks her hands together. She had just packed her bags. She walks off towards her house, a one-story house that’s clearly excellent. Up comes a car. Carly looks to the left. She smirks. Out of the car comes Emily, Tiffany and a boy – JUSTIN, 26 – come up to Carly.
21 CARLY Hey, guys. TIFFANY Hoe-la. CARLY Its pronounced “oh-la”. TIFFANY Ugh. Word vomit. CARLY What’re you guys doing here? I have to go, in a minute. EMILY Going with you, of course. CARLY What? How did you – EMILY Sh. That’s for me to worry about, OK? CARLY Got it, got it. JUSTIN Hey, Carly. CARLY Hi. It’s all awkward. They used to date. Justin seems to just get more handsome with age, it seems. EMILY (In Carly’s ear)
22 Awkward! CARLY Ya think. TIFFANY Alright, we all ready? CARLY Yep. EMILY Let’s go! TIFFANY/EMILY WOO! Everyone hops into the car. Carly gets into the drivers side. NA NA NA BY MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE STARTS INT. CAR – VARIOUS TIMES They drive. We ZOOM by! We see several roads light and dark with lights, sunlight and night. EXT. MOM’S HOUSE – NIGHT EERCH. The car stops. The doors all open. Tiffany jumps out onto the ground. TIFFANY LAND! Carly rolls her eyes. CARLY I don’t drive that bad.
23 EMILY GOTTA PEE! Emily speeds by Carly and Justin, who are standing near each other. Carly blushes and walks away, slowly. Moments later, Emily returns. CARLY Where’d you pee? EMILY Yard. CARLY Ugh. Gross. EMILY Couldn’t hold it. Carly smiles. MOM (O.S.) Carly! Carly turns and sees the doorway to the small trailer has opened. Carly’s mother is standing there. CARLY Hi, mom. Carly’s mom comes running forward. She almost tackles her with a hug. MOM Oh, its been so long! CARLY 6 months. Yeah, forever. MOM
24 6 months too long. Now, I see you’ve brought some friends. CARLY Yeah, this is Emily – Carly points to Emily. Emily waves and Carly’s mother waves back. CARLY (CONT’D) This is Tiffany. The same thing happens. CARLY (CONT’D) And, um... this is Justin. MOM Oh, how delightful. Is this your boyfriend? CARLY Uh – UJUSTIN No. No, we’re not together... CARLY Anymore. Carly’s mother raises and eyebrow. Mmm. MOM I see. Now, everyone, come on inside. Its getting chilly out here. CARLY We’ll grab our bags and be right in. MOM OK.
25 Carly’s mom walks away. Carly goes over to the trunk of car, where Emily is. EMILY That was... pleasant. CARLY Psh. EMILY That must’ve been weird when she said about Justin. CARLY It was. Big time. EMILY What’s your mom’s name? CARLY Andrea. TIFFANY (coming up behind them) So, is this where we’re staying? CARLY For tonight. Tomorrow we’ll stay at a motel. TIFFANY Ah. EMILY Something wrong with here? TIFFANY No, just I was just wondering if there was even enough room for all of us in there.
26 CARLY There’s not. Carly grabs her bags. Emily and her begin to walk away. TIFFANY Then who get’s to sleep on the floor? CARLY You! TIFFANY No fucking way! CARLY Last one in gets the floor! Tiffany’s jaw drops. Justin begins sprinting to the house. Emily and Carly have begun to run. TIFFANY Assholes! Tiffany grabs a bag and starts to run. INT. TRAILER – NIGHT Carly and Emily lay on a pullout bed. Justin sits in a recliner chair. Tiffany... on the floor. TIFFANY This is so unfair. CARLY Wah. TIFFANY Oh, yeah? Tiffany sits up.
27 TIFFANY (CONT’D) I don’t see you laying on the cold ass floor! CARLY I’ve done it before. Trust me. TIFFANY What... mommy made you sleep on the ground when she found out you brought a boy here? CARLY Exactly. TIFFANY What!? I was kidding. Tiffany lays back down, giggly. TIFFANY That’s great. CARLY Yup, it’s amazing, huh? EMILY Did you really bring a boy here? CARLY Maybe. TIFFANY (SITTING UP) What was his name? Carly sits, non-talking. Everyone sits in silence, waiting for an answer. CARLY Rocky... his name was Rocky.
28 EMILY Sexy name. TIFFANY Very sexy name. Mmm. What... flavor was he? CARLY It wasn’t like that, you know it wasn’t. Carly’s eyes flicker up to Justin, who’s pretending to be asleep. TIFFANY Oh. I get it. CARLY Get what? EMILY I do, too. CARLY Guys! What is there to get? EMILY Goodnight. Emily flicks a light switch off. CARLY Seriously! What is there to get? EMILY Sh. Go to sleep. CARLY Ugh.
29 The light flickers on. We see Carly’s mother, Andrea, standing there. She’s got a robe on. Carly wipes her eyes and looks up to see her mother. CARLY Mom. What’re you doing up? ANDREA Couldn’t sleep. I’m too worried about Megan. CARLY Mom, she’s fine. I know she is. I know exactly where to go and look for her, too. ANDREA You do?? CARLY Yeah. Downtown – ANDREA Oh, that’s a real good clue. CARLY Mom, shut up. Let me talk, for once. She texted me two nights ago and said that she was going to a new club, called... ANDREA Decker’s? CARLY I don’t know. Maybe its that one. ANDREA Well, it’s our best bet. We can try... CARLY
30 Sure. In the morning. ANDREA I can’t sleep, honey. CARLY Well take some pills to make you go night-night, if you have to. I’m getting sleep, and so are you. ANDREA Fine, fine. Goodnight. CARLY Night. Carly rolls back over. Andrea exits the room and the light flicks off. CUT TO: MORNING. INT. TRAILER – MORNING Carly walks across the frame of the camera, holding a cup of coffee in her right hand. She sits down at a small table, with only two sides. Tiffany and Justin sit on one side. Andrea and Carly sit on the other. Emily comes out of the bathroom, in the background. EMILY So, what’s the plan? CARLY We think we know where she last was. EMILY Where?? ANDREA Carly said Megan texted, is it? that she was going to a newly opened club.
31 TIFFANY OOO, a club. CARLY Tiff. We’re not here to party. We’re here to find my missing sister. TIFFANY It was just a joke, sour puss. CARLY Whatever. EMILY OK, so what club was it? ANDREA We think it was “Decker’s”, it opened up down the road just a week or two ago. CARLY Alright, so, why don’t half of us go there, and then the other half go to another club? TIFFANY I call going to a different one. CARLY OK. TIFFANY Emily, Justin, you two go to Decker’s. Carly and I’ll go to a different one. CARLY Sounds good. Right? EMILY

Andrea sobs at the table, holding a tissue to her mouth. She closes her eyes. Carly sees this. CARLY You guys go out, I’ll be there in a minute. EMILY K. Tiffany, Justin and Emily leave the trailer. Emily shoots a look back at Carly. Carly raises her eyebrows. CARLY (turning to her mother) Mom, don’t worry. We’ll find her. ANDREA Just... promise me something. CARLY
33 Anything. Carly takes a seat again, at the table, next to her sobbing mother, Andrea. ANDREA Bring my baby home. Andrea then collapses into Carly’s shoulder, breaking out into a loud cry. Carly awkwardly rubs her mother’s scalp. CARLY Sh. Sh. Don’t worry. We’ll find her, mom. ANDREA Please – Andrea sits up, wiping away a final tear drop. ANDREA (CONT’D) Hurry. CARLY We’ll be back before you know it. ANDREA OK. Carly sits up, and walks out of the trailer. She looks back at her mom. CARLY I... love you. ANDREA Honey, I love you, too.

Tiffany breaks out into laughter. TIFFANY Whatever, I just wanna get to a fucking club. CARLY Chill your hormones. We’ll get there. TIFFANY Pft. Carly drives off. Dust from the dirt road flies everywhere. CUT TO: A FEW MOMENTS LATER, POSSIBLY AN HOUR. INT. CAR Carly peers out her driver’s window. CARLY’S P.O.V. : A few cars and bars are in view. It doesn’t even look like L.A. is here. It looks like the South. NORMAL:
35 EMILY OK, so I don’t see any clubs, here. CARLY Just wait... EXT. TOWN Carly’s car peers around the corner. The camera rises and we see LOTS OF BRIGHT LIGHTS! It’s definitely L.A., now. BACK INTO THE CAR – CARLY Here we are. TIFFANY Holy. Fucking. EMILY Shit. Carly looks at the two girls in awe. She smirks and giggles. CARLY Guys, it’s really not that great. TIFFANY (admiring the place) Are you kidding! It looks like Heaven! CARLY Well... it is, for alcoholics and drug dealers and prostitutes. TIFFANY I’m all of the above. CARLY
36 I know. EXT. TOWN The car comes to a stop. All of the doors open, and the four-kind-ofamigos get out. CARLY Alright, well, Decker’s is down that road – Carly points to the road in front of them, then to the road behind them. CARLY And those are the other clubs. TIFFANY Alright, looks like we know where we’re going. CARLY (taking out her cellphone) OK, let’s meet back here, at say, 6? EMILY Yeah, sounds good. CARLY Bye, guys. EMILY Bye.

EMILY Well, you’re too late, now. JUSTIN Why? Does she have a boyfriend, now? EMILY Maybe. JUSTIN Does she, really? EMILY I don’t know, Justin. But if she did, she would definitely tell me. JUSTIN So that’s a no? EMILY Right, Justin. Look, if you really wanted her back, why didn’t you fight for her? Why didn’t you atleast act as if you cared for her, instead of running away like a little bitch, huh?
39 Justin stands, silent. Holy shit! She just told him off. Big time. He stands, silent, still. EMILY Exactly. CUT BACK TO: CARLY & TIFFANY They come to a stop. TIFFANY Is that the place? Tiffany points up. The camera pans to what she’s pointing at. It’s the club, VANITY. CARLY I don’t know... Vanity, hmmm. Sounds familiar. TIFFANY Maybe Megan got around, ya know. She could’ve went to Decker’s, and then here, or vise versa. CARLY True. TIFFANY Well, let’s go in. Tiffany starts up the stairs. CARLY Hey! TIFFANY What? CARLY You can’t just up and walk in.
40 TIFFANY Why not? Tiffany walks over to the door. She pushes it open. TIFFANY It’s open. Tiffany goes in before Carly can say anything. Carly rolls her eyes, and walks in. INT.

This is creepy. TIFFANY Agreed. They walk out. We see the figure emerging from the top of the stairs. Knife drawn out in their hand. BUCK 120, it says on it. EXT. VANITY Carly closes the door. CARLY What the fuck was that about? TIFFANY No clue.
42 They walk off of the porch steps. They walk out of the camera pan. We see... The club door opening a crack. The MAN’S EYE is peeking out. MAN’S P.O.V. : Carly and Tiffany walk down the road. They stop and turn right, out of the camera pan. NORMAL: The man closes the door, and goes back inside the club. CUT BACK TO EMILY & JUSTIN: EMILY OK, I don’t see any clubs. JUSTIN I see a supermarket. Justin points to the left. Emily turns her head and sees WEIS MARKET. EMILY How the fuck is that going to help us? JUSTIN Maybe someone in there saw Megan the night she disappeared. EMILY It’s worth a try. They walk towards the super market. INT. WEIS MARKET – ENTRANCE They enter. There are several people getting groceries, and bagging their paid for items. Emily walks ahead. Justin realizes and catches up with her. She stands at the counter, where a guy slicing ham and turkey works.
43 EMILY Excuse me? WORK MAN Yes? EMILY Um... The man comes forward. EMILY (CONT’D) We’re looking for our friend, Megan. We were wondering if you’ve seen her. Emily takes out her cellphone.

CARLY I told my m – Carly sees Tiffany’s gone. CARLY Tiff? Tiff? Where’d you go? INT. VANITY – DOWNSTAIRS The music is now off. The man stabs the knife into Tiffany’s stomach. Blood oozes out of her open wound. They still have their hand over her mouth, so she can’t scream. They drag her still-alive-body across the room, and up the stairs, leaving a blood trail. EXT. VANITY – STEPS Carly comes up the stairs. She pushes on the door... EMILY (O.S.) Carly! Carly turns and sees Justin and Emily coming up towards her. She stops and lets the door close. CARLY

50 (LAUGHING) Alright. Rocky looks over at Justin. ROCKY What’s your name, mate? JUSTIN Justin. Ouch. Cold response. Rocky takes it, not holding a grudge. He smiles a polite smile, and turns to Carly. They share a look of wide eyes. Rocky then looks away and sips his Lemonade. CUT TO: INT. VANITY – UPSTAIRS The man pulls a chain. We see the chain grinding as it pulls up something... Tiffany. She’s still alive. Barely, but alive. She has a bandana over her mouth. She’s crying, and in pain. The poor thing’s dying in front of us. She mumbles some words underneath the cloth. We can’t tell what it is she said. The man stops with the chain. He looks up. The light shines in through a window, and we catch a glimpse of his sinister eyeball. It’s dark, and eerie looking. The man walks over to Tiffany. He pulls the cloth down from her lips. He grins. MAN What was that? I couldn’t understand you... TIFFANY I said: “Fuck. You.”
51 The man pulls out the BUCK 120. He sets it on Tiffany’s skin, just barely digging into her flesh. She flinches back in pain. She grits her teeth and closes her eyes. She looks back. MAN Now, what’d you say? TIFFANY N – N – nothing. MAN I didn’t fucking think so. The man puts the BUCK 120 back into his pocket, and walks off down the steps. TIFFANY HELP MEEE! HELP! PLEASE! The man runs back up the stairs. He begins to pull the cloth back up over her mouth. Tiffany bites down into his finger. He rips his hand back, yelling. He looks up from his bleeding finger. He walks up to Tiffany, and smacks her cheek. She yelps in pain. He puts the cloth back over her mouth. She screams underneath the cloth. The man walks off down the stairs. EXT. OUTSIDE OF DINER – AFTERNOON Carly stands, against Rocky’s GMC TRUCK. Emily’s next to her. EMILY Mmm. What is wrong with you? CARLY What? EMILY 2 hot guys you fuck for a week, and then the relationship ends. What the hell, Carls? Something’s definitely wrong with you.

Justin storms off. Emily stands, still giggly. INT. VANITY – DJ BOOTH Tiffany still pulls on the rope. She grunts with every yank. INT. VANITY – UPSTAIRS Rocky comes up the stairs. He’s sad. He sits on a chair. Nobody else is up there. ROCKY Oh... I just don’t get it. He sighs. BEHIND HIM comes a figure!
59 They wrap a cord around his throat! They yank him back and onto the floor. ROCKY What the fuck! Let me GO! The song changes to SANDSTORM BY DARUDE Rocky gets yanked back. He punches the figure and they fly back. Rocky jumps onto the wooden floor. It CRACKS, but does not fall through. Rocky gets to his feet and starts to run towards the stairwell. The figure yanks him back by his hair. The figure slams Rocky to the floor. Rocky sits up, holding the back of his head. He looks at his finger, which has blood on it. The figure draws out the BUCK 120. They leap onto Rocky. Rocky fights back, but it’s no use. STAB! THE KNIFE IS IN ROCKY’S SIDE. Rocky grunts as the figure pulls the knife out of his flesh. Rocky kicks the man off of him. Rocky gets up and tries to run to the stairs, but the man blocks him. Rocky looks around and sees the DJ Booth. He runs for it. The man gives chase. Rocky runs to the DJ Booth. He goes inside. The man leaps after the door... INT. VANITY – DJ BOOTH Rocky slams the door as the knife comes through it, next to his face! Rocky jumps back, and locks the door. We hear a mumble. Rocky turns, frightened. (THE SONG CHANGES TO HELENA BEAT BY FOSTER THE PEOPLE) Rocky sees Tiffany! ROCKY What the!

Rocky reaches up to the ceiling. The room isn’t all paneled and finished. Rocky reaches up and grabs an electrical cord. It snaps in half. Rocky continues to be choked. The man sees the cord, and grabs it. ROCKY N – N- NO! TZZZZZZZZZZZZ. Sparks fly as the man electrocutes Rocky, and land onto the camera. His lifeless body lays on the floor. The lights in the whole place go off. The crowd downstairs Boos and they all leave. The man looks down. We see half his sinister face from the moonlight in the windows.
61 INT. VANITY – DOWNSTAIRS Carly looks around at the crowd leaving. CARLY EMILY!... EMILY?! EMILY CARLY?? Carly runs after the voice. She greets Emily. CARLY Hey, what happened? EMILY I don’t know. Power went out, I think. CARLY We gotta find Justin and Tiffany. EMILY I know. Where’d they go? CARLY I don’t know. Let’s look. The crowd is now gone. Carly and Emily look around, alone. INT.

The man throws pictures onto the floor. Carly picks them up. They’re pictures of them all together, at various places, like the diner, the car, the supermarket. CARLY What? MAN I know you came here... hoping to find your poor sister. Well you want her, too bad. EMILY Dude what the fuck! This isn’t funny. MAN It’s not a joke.
63 There’s silence. No one knows what to do. Carly’s eyes flicker up to the DJ Booth, where Tiffany is standing, scared. MAN Maybe this’ll change your mind. The man THROWS the knife directly at Emily and Carly. It strikes Emily in the shoulder. EMILY AH! FUCK! Emily falls to the ground. She rips the knife out of her flesh. Carly kneels down next to her. CARLY Are you OK?! The man yanks Carly back by her hair! She screams at the top of her lungs. The man slams her onto the floor. They begin to wrestle her. Emily gets up and runs over to them.

They all begin to run, but look back at the door of the club. The man is starting to get out. He’s out! He’s running full speed at them! CARLY SHIT! GO! The girls start to round a corner. They are now on a street. Nobody’s out there. Where is everyone?
68 CARLY HELP! HELP US! SOMEONE! They look back and see the man is now in the same alleyway as them. He’s walking. EMILY Go into that store! The girls turn their heads and see the supermarket that Emily and Justin were at earlier. CARLY OK! They all run inside the store. INT. WEIS MARKET They come in. They look all around the store. EMILY HELLO?! CARLY Is anyone here!? TIFFANY Hello?! Carly looks over at Tiffany’s bloody shirt. CARLY Oh my God. He stabbed you! TIFFANY Yeah. I’m OK, though. It wasn’t a serious wound. CARLY You were fucking stabbed! No matter how deep, it’s serious! TIFFANY
69 I’m fine. Really. Carly looks worried. They keep looking, though. EMILY That cook... CARLY Who? EMILY The cook from earlier... That told us he saw Megan. He should still be here, atleast. CARLY It’s 11:00. EMILY And? CARLY People don’t slice meat this late. CRASH! The girls turn back and see the entrance doors have been smashed to pieces by the killer. He comes forward. CARLY RUN! The girls do as they are commanded. They turn corners and run as fast as possible. They’re now in a freezer aisle. They look around, scared. EMILY Where did he go? CARLY I don’t know! TINK.
70 The girls look over where the noise came from. Nothing’s there. EMILY Is he over there? CARLY I don’t know. TIFFANY It’s a distraction. INT. BACK ROOM: CAMERAS The man sits in a chair, in front of several TVs. There’s camera angles, which study the girls and their every movement. We see the aisle they’re all in. They’re huddled up, together. The man gets up off the chair. He walks over to a door, where he leaves. But before he leaves he looks down at THE COOK’S DEAD BODY. Guts are lying next to him. Blood all over. The man smiles, happy with his kill. He exits the room. INT. WEIS MARKETS The girls still stand, frightened. They have no clue what to do or say. SCRAPE. The girls look around, wide eyed. EMILY Wh- Wh- What was that? CARLY Him. TIFFANY Let’s go!
71 The girls begin to walk away. They look around at every little sound. This time we hear – MAN Where am I? The girls gasp. CARLY Leave us alone you fucker! The girls are all looking in the same direction. They don’t see what’s behind them... but we do. The man comes up behind them, and SLICES Tiffany’s arm. TIFFANY AHH! FUCKK!! The girls turn and see the man with the knife. CARLY RUN! The girls start to run at full speed, turning corners and dodging big set ups of food items. SLAM! Emily trips! She falls flat on her stomach. EMILY OW! Carly looks back and sees her friend on the ground. Shit! She runs back to Emily, and helps her back up. They start to run again. Tiffany’s far back. Carly and Emily go into the freezer room, and hide. Tiffany looks all over for her friends. TIFFANY Guys! Where are you!? Tiffany turns around as the man SLASHES her with the knife! There’s a cut on her chest.
72 Tiffany walks backwards. She grunts in pain as the man follows her. She slams into the glass freezer door. She looks back and sees the door. She turns and faces the man, in fear. TIFFANY NOOO!!! THE MAN slices her neck with the knife. Blood sprays onto the glass doors, and onto the camera. INT. WEIS MARKETS – BACK ROOM Emily and Carly look out the door windows and see their dead friend being pulled around by her feet. Blood trails onto the floor. CARLY Oh god. EMILY (pulling Carly back) Come on! We gotta go! Carly cries as her and Emily run out of the room. INT. BACK ROOM – BATHROOM The girls come into the bathroom. Carly closes the door, and locks it. Emily shoves a big block of rock in front of it. EMILY Window! Carly looks up at the small window. It’s very small. Barely big enough for the girls. Good thing they’re not fat! BANG! Thee door starts to crack as the man pushes against it. EMILY GO! Carly starts to climb through it. She’s halfway out, when the door breaks halfway open!
73 EMILY HURRY! I DON’T WANNA DIE! Carly begins to speed up. She’s the whole way out! Emily lets go of the door she was pushing against. Emily comes up the window and begins to climb through it. The door keeps cracking. EXT. PARKING LOT Carly stands, pulling Emily out. CARLY Come on. Hurry! EMILY Wait. Wait. Wait. CARLY What? We still hear the door cracking into pieces in the room. Carly begins to cry. EMILY I’m gonna knock him out. CARLY What? NO! Hurry! EMILY It’s ok! I’m going back in. I’ll knock him out. Watch. Emily goes back into the bathroom. Carly covers her mouth and sits on the gravel on the ground. INT. BACKROOM – BATHROOM Emily hides behind the door. She picks up the block of rock, and grasps it in her hands. CRACK! The door comes flying open! The man is behind it, staring sinisterly.
74 Emily holds the rock high above the mans head. He doesn’t see her there... The man goes over to the window, and peers out. EXT. PARKING LOT Carly’s still sitting. She looks up and her eyes meet the man’s. CARLY AHH!!! The man raises the knife. Then he collapses! Carly sits up. Tears are still running down her cheeks. She looks into the room. We both see that the man is laying on the floor, knocked out. Emily stands over his body, and drops the block to the floor. Dust from it flies. CARLY Come on! Get out! Emily comes over to the window. She climbs out. EMILY Do you think he’s dead? Carly looks in and sees the man, lying there. CARLY I don’t know. Emily slowly walks over to the window. We look in at the same time as her. HE’S GONE! Emily turns back and faces Carly. EMILY He’s gone! CARLY WHAT!?
75 Carly looks inside the room. CARLY Oh my god. Emily draws out a knife from her back pocket. She stares at the blade. CARLY Where’d you get that? EMILY Kitchen in there. Carly looks astonished. Emily stares at the sharp blade. THEN THE MAN wraps his arms around Emily’s neck from the window! The man pulls Emily back and slams her against the brick wall of the building. Carly stands and stares at her helpless friend. Emily stares at Carly. EMILY HELP ME! Carly tilts her head to the side. EMILY What the fuck! Help me... please! Emily holds the man’s arms as the man keeps choking her. Emily has the knife in her hand. Carly doesn’t see it. CARLY Now, you’ve met my friend John, here. Carly points to the man choking Emily. CARLY Him and I have been...devising this plan. EMILY Why did you do this?! Kill all your friends! Your sister?! CARLY
76 I wasn’t planning on this. You guys surprised me, by coming with me. I was planning to move out here with John, where we’d create a family and live happily ever after. EMILY You’re psycho! CARLY Yeah, well, shhh. That’ll be our secret. EMILY You deserve to die. I thought you were my friend! CARLY Oh, I am! EMILY You’ll never be my friend, ever again. Carly places her hand against her heart. CARLY UH! That hurts, it really does! EMILY Fuck you. CARLY No thanks. Emily tightens her grip on the butcher knife. All of a sudden she whips it out and STABS John in the arm! He withdraws his arm quickly. Blood gushes out on Emily’s face, and the camera. Carly’s jaw drops. Emily takes the knife, and comes dashing forward, directly at Carly! Carly reaches her fist out and punches at Emily. She dodges it, and smacks Carly in the face! Carly bites her teeth into Emily’s shoulder. She winces in pain. Emily punches Carly in the face, sending her back. Carly falls onto the gravel and dust flies out as she slams onto the ground. Emily is on top of her immediately. Emily raises the knife up, ready to strike. Carly knees Emily in the stomach, making her fall to the ground.
77 Carly gets on top of Emily. She’s got evil in her eyes, 100%. Carly places her hands over Emily’s throat. Emily drops the knife, sending it skidding across the ground, about 3 feet away. CARLY I thought we were gonna be friends till the end, Em! Emily glares as her best friend attempts to kill her. She looks over to the knife. Carly looks over at the knife, too. CARLY You want that, huh? Carly reaches over and grabs the knife off of the ground. She holds it high into the air. CARLY Well, too bad. I need it. Carly swings her hand down, with the knife in it! It almost hits Emily in the face, but she grabs it, keeping it in the middle of them. The knife is reaching out in front of Emily’s eyes. It pops out of the screen. EMILY You’re such a bitch! Emily knees Carly in the side. Carly lets go of the knife, and holds her side. Emily kicks Carly in the face, knocking her off of her. Emily raises to her feet, and Carly falls to the ground, again. Emily kicks her foot down on Carly’s stomach, so she can’t get up. Carly growls and hoots as she tries to get up. Emily has the knife in hand, ready to kill. EMILY Why. CARLY Why what? EMILY Why did you do this?
78 CARLY It’s the only way I could get away. You people chose this, yourselves. If you would’ve stayed back home, you’d still be alive. EMILY You chose this. Emily jumps up into the air, and lands on Carly. She stabs the knife into her neck. Emily shoves the knife down, harder. Carly tries to push Emily off, but can’t. EMILY Best friends forever. Emily rips the knife out, and stabs it into Carly’s chest. Carly reaches up to her friend, in grief. Emily looks down at Carly, in sorrow. A tear rolls down Emily’s cheek. It’s sad. Very sad. Emily raises to her feet. She raises her foot into the air. EMILY (whispering) Good-bye. Emily kicks her foot down, pushing the knife all the way through Carly’s chest. Carly’s head falls back. Her eyes roll into the back of her head – DEAD. Emily sniffs and wipes her face clean of blood. The camera angle is in front of Emily. We see behind her is THE MAN. Emily’s eyes flicker back. She can feel him back there. She looks up at the sky, then back down at Carly. She rips the knife out of Carly’s chest, and THROWS IT INTO THE AIR AT THE MAN. SLICE! IT LANDS IN HIS FACE. He falls back onto the ground, dropping the knife beside him.
79 Emily walks off towards the road. She holds her elbows in her hands. HELENA BY MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE STARTS AS THE CREDITS ROLL...
