It kills brain cells, it takes lives. No, it's not a Britney Spears concert, it's good 'ol squares. Marybeth, a 15-year old quirky cat with a thirst for knowledge, decides to give into peer pressure of Michelle's cigarettes. As she lights one up, she is taken to multiple universes with a puff of each smoke. Packed with scares, laughs, and dread, This Just In! has it all.

Side Comment(s): This is the first screenplay I have written for a short story. Please feel free to rip it up as much as you'd like because I want to make the best, scariest, and funniest screenplay I can possibly write. If it helps, I want to keep all the crazy, graphic scenarios. Thank you for taking the time to read it.
