COLD OPEN

Int. the shop - day

 

INT.APARTMENT.AFTERNOON

Fade in, with the background in a blurry vision of 3 people in a living room.

Open to a small group of people, Aaron, Paul, and Cindy all in their mid to late twenties nervously waiting in the living room. The room appears trashed, lamps knocked over and chairs on the floor. Cindy pacing back and forth, while Paul and Aaron sit and wait.

CINDY

How long do we have to wait?

PAUL

I told you as long as it takes.

AARON

It’s been 20 minutes already.

Paul is putting a cell phone away.

PAUL

The website says to wait till it works its way through the body.

CINDY

(Angry)

What if it doesn’t work? What then huh?

PAUL

I don’t know.

AARON

(Panicking)

What you mean you don’t know? You said you read.... Paul stands up aggressive.

PAUL

Fuck I don’t know alright. Not like I’ve done this before. Paul walks past Cindy and into the kitchen to grab a beer from the fridge. He stands at the counter and pops the top off.

In the background a man screams. All 3 of them turn in the same direction at the same time. We come to a close up to a closed door.

(O.C.)MAN

(Drowsy)

Guys. Hey!!!

Cut to: Cindy, Aaron and Paul approaching the door cautiously.

CINDY

(Hysterical)

I can’t take this. I’m going in. Aaron grabs her arm.

AARON

Not ’til it’s out of his system. Cindy pulls away from him. Gets in his face.

CINDY

He’s suffering in there. We’re supposed to sit here and do nothing?

PAUL

Yes! Whatever it takes.

Paul steps in between them. Brief moment of silence between the 3.

AARON

Are we bad people?.

CINDY

Yes. Paul looks at Cindy, then back to Aaron.

PAUL

No. We’re not.

AARON

I hit him with that bottle.

PAUL

Did what you had to. He was acting crazy. Could have hurt someone.

(O.C.)MAN

Can someone bring me something to drink? All 3 of them look at each other.

PAUL

I’m not doing it. Fucker swung at me last time.

AARON

I’ll do it. I owe him that much. Quick cut: Glass filled with water.

Aaron at the door. Looks back at Paul and Cindy. Cut back to Aaron. He takes a breathe and opens the door.

INT.BATHROOM. AFTERNOON

Aaron opening the door.

AARON

Hey.

The man is tied at the hands and feet laying in a bathtub. Appears exhausted and helpless. Aaron walks to the man. He kneels down to the edge of the tub.

AARON

Here ya go man. The man takes more then a couple sips with a sign of relief. He leans back against the tub.

MAN

(Exhausted)

Please-please kill me.

AARON

It’ll be over before you realize.

MAN

It’ll be too late.

AARON

I promise S... The man goes into a rage induced state. Squirming and moving rapidly. Cut to:

INT.APARTMENT-HALLWAY.AFTERNOON

Cindy and Paul hear the man screaming. They run in.

INT.BATHROOM. AFTERNOON

Both Paul and Cindy entering.

PAUL

What the fuck happened?

AARON

I don’t know. He just started screaming.

CINDY

Must be leaving the body. The man continues to scream in agony.

CINDY

We should do something.

PAUL

Like what?

AARON

Hold him still. Aaron and Paul carry him out of the tub and lay him on the floor while he continues to squirm.

CINDY

Do something!

PAUL

What?! What would you...

AARON

Hey!!! The man stops moving.

Close up of the man’s face. His mouth open in pain and his eyes nearly bulging out of his head. Cut back to a point of view shot of Paul, Cindy and Aaron jumping back.

Cut back to a close up on the man’s left ear as a little moth climbs out with a bit of blood trickling down. Quick cuts:

Aaron and Paul’s face in awe. Cindy with a disgusted look on her face. Cut back:

The moth climbs out and is crushed by Aaron. The man lies eyes and mouth open dead. Paul kneels down. Cindy kneels next to Paul, barely holding in her tears.

Aaron kneels on the other side of the man. Cut to a close up of Aaron briefly engaged in the situation, he then turns his attention to the dead moth. He looks at it closer.

Cut to Cindy and Paul leaning against the sink. Brief moment of silence. Cut to Aaron puts his head down, we then notice blood trickling down on his shirt. Aaron touches it, his breathing increases. Cindy and Paul look up at him, Aaron goes to speak and notices blood coming out of their ears. He points freaking out. Cindy turns to Paul and screams. Paul swipes his ear and begins to freak out, Cindy looks down and see’s blood on her chest and begins to hyperventilate.
