Return To Crystal Lake

By J. Smith

(Paramount Pictures Logo Appears, then fades out)

(Fade into an exterior shot of a large hospital, named LYON PSYCHIATRIC CLINIC. A man's voice can be heard.)

MAN
(v.o.)Okay, you all know why were here.

(Fade into the shot of a door inside the hospital. A large white sign is tapedup, reading:)

GROUP THERAPY--- All Welcome

(We pan closer to the sign as the man continues to talk:)

MAN
(v.o.) The best way to deal with traumas from the past is to deal with them now...int he present.

(Cut to inside the group therapy room. A large group of individuals of every age, race, and sex is there; sitting in a circle. The doctor, who has a nametag which reads DR. MAXWELL, continues speaking:)

MAXWELL
There is nothing to hide from one another, and there is nothing to fear. Now who would like to go first?

(Cut to a blond haired, blue eyed 16-year-old boy looking around the room. His nametag reads BRANDON)

BRANDON
Hi, I'm Brandon Pintar. Last year I saw....my parents killed by a man who was robbing a bank. He almost killed me....

(Cut to a young woman who has dark curly hair and brown eyes. She has a nametag which reads ELEANOR.)

ELEANOR
Eleanor. I'm only here because my mom thinks I need help. I mean, I was kidnapped and raped for christsakes, what does she expect? Pleasant dreams?

(Cut to Dr. Maxwell)

MAXWELL
You know, all these buried anxieties you all have....they will surface when you deal with them. And the more you commit to your healing, the faster it will happen.

WOMAN'S VOICE
(to Maxwell) That's not always true.

(Maxwell turns to the woman and frowns, obviously he knows her story)

MAXWELL
I stand by my word. Would you care to share next, Ms. Canton? We haven't heard from you in awhile.

WOMAN'S VOICE
Sure.

(Cut to a pretty 41-year-old woman, with sholder length dirty-blonde hair which has light red highlights to it. She is wearing a light green dress with a dark green unbuttoned sweater jacket. Her nametag reads ALICE.)

ALICE
Hi everyone. My name's Alice, and most of you have heard my story before. Twenty years ago, something so horrible happoned to me....I never recovered.

MAXWELL
Would you like to talk about it?

(Alice lights a cigarette, and lets out a long stream of smoke)

ALICE
When I was twenty one, I was the sole survivor of a massacre. Everyone was killed....

(Close up on Alice's eyes)

ALICE (cont.)
...Everyone.

(Cut to Brandon looking sadly at Alice)

(Cut to Dr. Maxwell looking firmly at Alice)

(Cut to Alice, wiping away a tear. The camera slowly zooms closer to her.)

ALICE (cont.)
I....still have nightmares about it....almost every night. It all happoned so fast....but I can remember it like it happoned yesterday....

(Cut to FLASHBACK clips.)

(Fade into ext. shot of wooded area. A bright yellow sign is perched on awooden post. It has bright red letters which read CAMP CRYSTAL LAKE)

ALICE
(v.o.) You see...I went to Ohio to help a friend reopen a camp.

(Fade into SILENT FLASHBACK shot of Alice, now 21, hammering nails into a easetroth while camp owner STEVE CHRISTY looks at Alice's sketch pad. Older Alice is still talking over the shot.)

ALICE
(v.o.) You know, like a summer camp for kids? I wasn't supposed to stay the entire summer, I had to return to California, where I grew up. Then all the counselors arrived, and I was ready to leave not long after.

(Fade into SILENT FLASHBACK shot of Alice meeting the camp counselors.)

ALICE
(v.o.) But....that night.....they were all killed. Steve and Brenda and Bill....they were all killed by....by a woman....she...

(Fade into SILENT FLASHBACK shot of PAMELA VOORHEES running towards Alice with a knife.)

ALICE
(v.o.) I was almost killed by her. Her name was Pamela Voorhees, and she killed seven innocent people that night, all because she lost her child....

(Fade into FLASHBACK shot of Pamela smiling at Alice)

PAMELA
Jason was my son...and today is his birthday.

(Cut back to Alice, crying in front of the group)

ALICE
I...I don't want to be afraid anymore.

MAXWELL
It's okay Alice....Pamela Voorhees is dead. You killed her in self defense.

(Cut to Alice looking at the doctor with red eyes.)

(Close up on Alice's eyes)

(Fade to FLASHBACK of Alice decapitating Pamela)

(Cut back to Alice shaking her head as tears stream down her face)

ALICE
I know I killed Pamela you asshole....I'm not afraid of her.....I'm afraid of Jason.

(Dr. Maxwell sighs and lowers his head.)

(Eleanor looks over to Dr. Maxwell, then back to Alice.)

ELEANOR
Who's Jason?

(Alice, sniffling, takes another cigarette out of her purse. She lights it.)

ALICE
Pamela's son. He lives in Crystal Lake.

MAXWELL
Alice, you know as well as I do Jason Voorhees drowned in Crystal Lake in 1957.

(Alice narrows her eyes)

ALICE
I saw him. He....he.....

(FLASHBACK of young Jason pulling Alice out of a canoe and into Crystal Lake. Alice's scream echoes loudly)

ALICE
He came alive to pull me under....I murdered his mother, and I know he wants to murder me.

MAXWELL
Jason....is....dead.

ALICE
He's still in the lake. He's in there....and he's waiting for me.
