1 OPENING CREDITS.
People are running about, happy. Lots of noise from
machines and children, litter everywhere
(naturally). Basically a normal theme park.
Or is it? Nobody is going near the 'haunted house'. It is
deserted - no worker, no kids, and not any litter around it
A SYLVESTER - young, enthusiastic, annoying - wanders up to
an ATTENDANT, dragging his older sister KENDRA -
intelligent, nerdy, 20 - with him.
Hello sir, why can't I go on the
It's Out Of Order, it is. Nobody

He rubs his chin, thinking.
Well, I can't remember anyone going

interesting story here)
I've only worked here five months,
and all I do is sell candy-floss,
so it could be anything.
You've not heard any rumours then?
Rumours? I'm not sure I know what
He didn't mean it like that, Syl.
She turns to the attendant.
But can't you just put an Out of
Order sign on it?
None of my business, that is. Now
if you'll excuse me, this young
girl here would like some candy
He wanders off.
Can't we go on it anyway?
No, no. It could be dangerous.
Here... why don't you go on the
large slide again?
And let you take all the credit for
discovering their secret!?
Kendra's annoyed he realised so quickly.
I'm not trying to find a secret, I
just want to... look around.
Well, tell me what you find.
Sylvester runs off.
Kendra walks to the Haunted House and peeps inside one of

The Haunted House has turned on. The carts are spinning,
music is playing and laughter and screams are heard.
What did you do? You're some
undercover agent, aren't you?
I did nothing!
People are gathering round to see it.
They must have fixed it!
A cart moves out of the house, and stops.
Has it stopped?
No, the music is still playing...
The Attendant feels himself pulled to it - like a magnet.
But too late, he is pulled into a cart, and he falls into
the cart. The cart rapidly moves forward and into the
Everyone stares in horror.
Cue evil laugh sound effect from house.
Kendra runs back.
Syl, where is he? SYLVESTER!?
Kendra turns again, to face the haunted house. It has

you're doing NOTHING?

I don't care, but my brother is NOT
being added to that list!
She pushes him out of the way and runs to the haunted house.
But he is gone. She runs behind it, and he's still gone.
(appearing behind her)
See? There's nothing there.
Kendra notices the door.
The service door has recently been
opened. I'll have to go in after
Ma'am, I have to insist-
Yeah, you're very good at that,
Ignoring him, she going inside. The guard, angry, follows
her, but the door slams shut. He gasps.

Kendra, panting, falls to her feet.
Who are you?
I'm the - ooh, look at that!
He runs over to where she was attached to the wall, and
touches the wall.
ZAP! The Professor cries out.
A static shock. Ow...
He sucks on his finger. She is unimpressed.
Tell me this is a joke.
The Professor turns to her.
This is a joke.
You obviously believe this is real,
or you would have accepted it!
My brother, Sylvester.
The Professor looks at her, seriously.
What happened to him?
He came in here. I followed him,
and... is he dead?
I doubt it, I shut down the

Kendra looks at him, waiting for him to realise.
That's about now, isn't it?
What about Sylvester!?
He grabs her arm and pulls her.

They run to the service door, and out of it.
