HalloweeN 1997

Almost The Last Night

  HE Came Home!

 
 
 
 
 

Um ok so I know that in H1998 it said Ignored
every other sequel after the second, so I lied! I
ignored every other sequel after the 4th. Ok.

FADE IN

We see nothingness, just blackness. And then
suddenly a BLAST OF MUSIC spurts up, and then
blares a bit louder till we come to a stop.

As the credits begin to roll we hear The Theme
when The Shape Stalks start up and get very, very
loud.

The Main Title appears, and the 7 in 1997
becomes a long slender knife, and the knife slashes
right across the screen as we come to-

INT. FOREST - NIGHT - OCTOBER 30th 1997

Its dark. The moon is full and the trees sway back
and forth in the wind. In the background we
gradually see a figure staggering towards us. From
behind him we see the MINE SHAFT (From
Halloween 4) which MICHAEL MYERS
previously escaped from, but we don't know if this
is Michael Myers or not.

Titles begin as this person makes his way down the
woods.

POV UNKNOWN FIGURE
We walk out of the woods and come upon a small
store on the road side.

INT. STORE

We walk in and see the cashier sitting up in front
of the cash register reading a newspaper.

The entire store is empty, so nobody sees us.

We move more deeper into the store and come
upon and isle with knives in it.

Main titles stop.

A hand comes out and snags a large knife right out
of its case and move towards another isle.

In this isle, the shelves are stacked with Halloween
masks.

A hand comes out and grabs a can of white spray
paint and sprays it continuously at a Captain Kirk
mask.

When we finish, we take the mask and set it over
our face and walks towards the cashier.

CASHIER
(looking at us)
Hey pal you'll need to pay for that!

We swing around to see that the POV we have
been following was MICHAEL MYERS after all!

Michael brings out the knife he took and grabs the
cashier by the throat and slams him against the
wall.

The cashier gasps and struggles to breathe.

Michael holds up the knife and… WHAM! Neatly
impaling the cashier to the wall.

Mike stares at the dead body of the cashier and
goes back into the isle with the knives.

He picks up an even larger knife, and we hear the
eerie SHING of its blade sliding out of its case and
walks back to the cashier.

Michael takes the keys out of the dead guy's
pockets and walks out of the store, leaving the
cashier impaled on the wall.

EXT. STORE

Michael walks over to the cashier's car and
unlocks it, and steps inside.

We watch as the car starts up and drives down the
road, with a SIGN along the road side reading:
HADDONFIELD 17.

Or, in other words, 17 MILES TO
HADDONFIELD.

The car drives down the road until completely out
of distance.

We look up at the sky to see the SUN slowly
rising.

INT.  ROAD

The car drives and drives and drives some more till
we come upon some rednecks approaching the
vehicle.

REDNECK #1
Hey pal where do you think your tired old arse is
off to? This is private property!

REDNECK #2
You'll either have to turn around and drive back,
or give us your license!

Michael just stares.

REDNECK #2
Whoa that's a pretty ugly looking mask you have
their.

REDNECK #1
Looks like that hippie, William Shatner!

The rednecks burst out laughing as the Shape
slowly gets out of the car and walks towards them.

The rednecks don't see him approaching, so they
just stand there, insulting Captain Kirk.

REDNECK #2
Did you see that episode of Star Trek of when
Captain Kirk married that green girl----

Michael takes out his knife and lifts up Redneck
#2, stabbing him fiercely in the back, causing the
blade to hurl through his back and stick out from
the other side of body.

Mike throws him onto the ground, leaving him for
dead and takes out his knife.

REDNECK #1
JESUS!

He takes out his gun and starts to shoot Michael.

The bullets soon run out, leaving the Redneck
helpless with Michael approaching him.

REDNECK #1
WHO ARE YOU!?----

Michael takes his knife and stabs him in the
 forehead.

The redneck screams as Michael takes the knife
back out and starts to strangle him.

Michael throws him over to the car and beats his
head wound on the car repeatedly till he gets
knocked out cold.

He brings out his knife again, and with one soft
stroke he SLITS the redneck's throat, slashing up
the jugular vein, following a trickle of blood
spurting from the wound.

INT. CAR

Michael steps back into the car, cranks the engine
and drives off down the road yet again, leaving the
two bodies plus the impaled cashier behind.

BLACK OUT!!!!

The Halloween Theme starts up as we come to
darkness and see the shimmering title appear in the
center view.

Title card: Halloween 1997 Almost The Last Night
HE Came Home!

The words then vanish from sight as slowly the
Halloween Theme from Halloween 4 starts up as
the Halloween Theme stops as we fade slowly to
see the town of HADDONFIELD.

Words on Screen: October 31st, 1997.
HALLOWEEN

INT. STREETS

We then swing around to the other side of us to
see 17 year old JAMIE LLOYD/CORRUTHERS
(whatever) walking down the streets towards her
apartment.

She walks across a street and onto another, until
she comes upon her apartment building.

INT. JAMIE'S APARTMENT

Jamie steps inside and throws her keys to a side
table and turns on the tv.

A reporter slowly fades into view.

REPORTER
(on tv)
And the police are baffled at the strange
occurrences that happened just outside of our
small city. 3 bodies were found. All of the murders
seem to have been connected, but officials will not
release anything at the moment. Towns people say
it was "Good ol' Michael Myers" is on the prowl
again. It is a possibility, since Michael's body
hasn't been found in over 9 years, on that
Halloween night in 1988 when Michael came back
to his hometown to kill. As we speak the Cavalry
is inspecting the mine shaft fell down in, in '88. If
nothing is found, then god help us all.

CLICK! Jamie turns off the tv.

JAMIE
What a bunch of shit!

The phone rings.

JAMIE
(picking it up)
Hello? Jamie Lloyd speaking.

RACHEL
(through phone)
Jamie!!! How is my favorite little sister?

JAMIE
Rachel I'm your ONLY little sister.

RACHEL
Yeah, yeah. Did you hear the news?

JAMIE
About this Michael Myers shit? Way too
commercial.

RACHEL
(gasp)
Jamie don't you ever use that word again!

JAMIE
(annoyed)
Rachel I'm 17 years old.

RACHEL
Whatever! Listen, I got to go, I'll call you later.
Happy Halloween!

JAMIE
Ok. Bye.

Jamie hangs up, and peers out of her window.

JAMIE'S POV
The street is busy, as usual: busy pedestrians walk
by, traffic here and there, also, the SHAPE staring
at Jamie from across the street.

She gasps and steps back, a bit startled.

"Laurie's Theme" starts up as Jamie goes to peer
out of the window again.

JAMIE'S POV
The Shape is still staring.

She grabs her coat and walks out of her apartment.

EXT. APARTMENT

Jamie crosses the street and looks around: no sign
of the Shape.

"Laurie's Theme" gradually slows to a stop, as
Jamie starts to cross the street, and SMACKS right
into a figure.

Jamie screams, as the Figure screams as well.

She looks up to see her friend, Laura.

LAURA
Hey girlfriend, a bit jumpy I see.

JAMIE
Shut up Laura and stop calling me girlfriend!

LAURA
And testy as well! You coming over to baby sit
Dylan tonight?

JAMIE
Yeah, yeah. Why aren't you babysitting him, he is
your brother.

LAURA
I coaxed my mom into making you doing that, I
have an important meeting at the MSL.

JAMIE
What is MSL?

LAURA
Mall-Shopping-League.

JAMIE
Oh a team of blonde bimbos walking around in
skinny little outfits discussing stories about how
shoes cost too much and the horror of having your
credit card maxed out! I remember.

LAURA
Shut up! Its nothing like that… well a little but you
didn't have to say it like that.

Laura and Jamie walk across the street and down
the road.

JAMIE
Have you seen Sherrie today?

LAURA
(applying lip stick)
Nope. Last I head she copped a major field.

JAMIE
(groaning)
MMppph.

Laura sparks up a cigarette as we see SHERRIE
approaching them.

SHERRIE
Hey guys thank you for not answering me when I
was shouting out at you from down the street!

LAURA
Whatever! We couldn't hear a thing! The cars and
stuff interrupted.

SHERRIE
(taking the cigarette out of Laura's hand and
smoking it herself)
Well first of all I find out Jeff cant make it to my
place tonight, on the count of he's grounded
AGAIN! God how many times in a week can a
man be grounded.

JAMIE
If we're talking about Jeff then he is no average
man.

SHERRIE
Just shut up. This is the 3rd time this week he has
been grounded and its only Wednesday. What am
I to do?

JAMIE
Hey you guys wanna know something weird?

LAURA
Shoot away.

The Shape, comes up behind them unnoticed,
listening to their conversation.

JAMIE
I just found out I have an uncle that's only 13
YEARS OLD! His name is Kyle Strode and he is
the brother of my mom --- the one who died ---
and he was born by the Strode's in 1984! Can you
believe? A uncle that's younger than I.

SHERRIE
Wow that is freaky!

LAURA
You're telling me. Where does this freak of nature
live?

JAMIE
Oh somewhere in Morningside County. I'm gonna
visit him tomorrow if I get a chance.

LAURA
Kyle Strode… hmm…

THE SHAPE STOPS, in complete shock, learning
he has another living relative. You can almost see
the wonder in his eyes.

SHERRIE
Well I have never heard of a 17 year old have a 13
year as an uncle. Well… there is the 40 year old
you have as an uncle!!

JAMIE
Uncle Mickey? Nah.. he's long dead.

LAURA
Are you sure? They said they never found the
body.

JAMIE
Yeah, so?

LAURA
So I am saying it is possible that Michael Myers is
still out there.

SHERRIE
Ooh spooky.

JAMIE
Shut up! He's not alive. I saw it in my own two
eyes, he fell down the mine shaft and that is it.

The infamous  HALLOWEEN THEME starts up
as we go to a…

---FLASH BACK---

INT. FOREST - NIGHT - HALLOWEEN 4

CUT TO:

8 year old Jamie Lloyd and 17 year old Rachel
Corruthers climb up onto the roof with Michael
hot on their trail.

CUT TO:

Jamie slips down the stairway of the school as
Michael steadily approaches her.

CUT TO:

Jamie and Rachel get attacked in the truck, as
Michael reaches his hand in and rips Rachel's
sweater.

CUT TO:

Jamie ducks as the Cavalry shoot Michael
repeatedly till he backs in pain and slips down a
mine shaft, burying him in Hell.
 

---END OF FLASHBACK---
 

The HALLOWEEN THEME slows to a stop and
we fade back into view.

Jamie snaps out of it and continues to walk with
her 2 friends.

They walk and walk and walk, and we hear as they
blabber on and on and on.

We look at the neighborhood, and see that
Halloween décor has swallowed up pretty much
the majority of the Town.

The SHAPE stops following and walks across the
street, and secretly slips past many people when
we suddenly see the old MYERS house.

Michael stops, its as if he's about to cry.

The Shape steps inside.

A good time after so, a car pulls up and 3 teenage
boys step out.

KEITH
I dare you to get in.

STAN
You're on Keith.

MAX
You guys, I don't know if this is such a good idea.

KEITH
Stop being such a wimp, and get in!

STAN
You're coming, too!

INT. MYERS HOUSE - CONTINUOUS

Stan, Max and Keith walk inside. Its so dark and
so silent its terrifying.

They all split up, Keith walks upstairs, Max walks
elsewhere into the interior and Stan goes down
into the basement.

INT. UPSTAIRS HALLWAY

Keith makes his way upstairs and stops to look
around.

KEITH
Hey Mister Boogey man! Come and get me!

We see the shadow of the SHAPE moving about
as Keith walks deeper into the hallway.

INT. JUDITH'S BEDROOM

"Judith's Theme" starts up.

Keith steps inside, and looks out of the window.

He stops and sits down on a chair (in the exact
position as Judith did in the first).

Michael walks inside and begins to stab Keith to
death in his JUDITH position.

Judith's Theme stops as Michael walks down the
stairs.

INT. DOWNSTAIRS HALLWAY -
CONTINUOUS

MICHAEL'S POV
We step into the hallway and walk until we get
into the kitchen. We look around till we stop and
see some construction equipment laying around.
We bring out an arm and snag a hammer.

EXT. KITCHEN

Michael steps out and sees MAX walking about,
calling for Keith.

MAX
Keith? Where are you? We better get going now!!

Michael approaches him and SMASHES the
hammer down onto his skull.

The eerie skull cracking and blood spurting burst
into the air.

Max screams in pain as his skull cracks. He falls to
the ground, and we see MICHAEL raising the
hammer claw, and about to slam down onto his
face just as we-

CUT TO:

INT. BASEMENT

Stan trips over a box and falls to the ground. Out
of the box falls some needles and medical stuff.

He grasps his pained leg and tries to get up.

STAN
Ow!

In the background we see the SHAPE coming at
him, holding the bloody hammer.

Stan finally gets up, just as MICHAEL grabs a
syringe and grabs Stan from behind.

He holds him by the neck and thrusts the needle
into his mouth.

Stan lets out a horrifying scream of pain, as
Michael takes out a scalpel from the scattered pile
on the floor.

He takes it and slashes it across his neck and
watches it bleed furiously.

Michael whips his scalpel at Stan and watches as it
slices his upper cheek wide open,  as STAN falls to
the ground, dead.

Stan's body falls limp, as a small pool of blood
slowly surrounds him.

Michael stares at him for quite some time, then
finally gets up and walks out of the basement.

INT. STREETS - THE VERY MOMENT

The 3 friends are still walking and talking, strolling
down the quiet street of the suburban area.

SHERRIE
(cont. from whatever she was saying)
…And that is how you make Fudge!

JAMIE
Unbelievable.

LAURA
Whatever.

SHERRIE
It is so totally insane tonight, I actually have to
HOST a Halloween Party! Can you believe?

JAMIE
Where?

SHERRIE
At the recreation park, you the one beside the cop
station.

JAMIE
Oh I am so there.

LAURA
What??? You said you would baby sit Dylan!

JAMIE
Get Daphne to do it. She'll be glad to.

LAURA
She's out of town.

JAMIE
What about Jared.

LAURA
Taking his little brother trick or treating.

JAMIE
Fine get Molly.

LAURA
Molly??? No freaking way. The last time I got her
to baby sit Dylan she caused him to shave the cat
and wreck my science project that was like, 70
percent of My Science grade!

SHERRIE
Well you got me there. Look, I have to go, alright?

LAURA
Ok , seeya.

JAMIE
Bye.

INT. RECREATION CENTER - LATER THAT
DAY

Sherrie steps inside the party room, to see many
people decorating it with Halloween stuff.

SHERRIE'S POV
We look around the room until we see someone
putting up a plastic dummy of Michael Myers
stabbing a Poster Sized Picture of Jamie Lloyd.

SHERRIE
Hey!! Take that down!

The guy snickers and hastily puts down the
dummy and poster.

SHERRIE
God, some people.

She shakes her head and puts up a poster of the
movie CARRIE on one of the walls. She then
stables a poster of the movie FRIDAY THE 13th
on another. She stops and puts up a poster of Wes
Craven's New Nightmare besides it, and starts to
hum quietly to herself.

INT. HALL WAY

The guy carries the dummy and poster down the
long hall and sets it on a stand.

He bends down and begins to tie his shoe laces.

MICHAEL'S POV
We are behind the stand, and looking at the
dummy. We slash our way through and STAB the
guy in the chest repeatedly, till he dies.

REVERSE SHOT as Michael carries his body into
a closet and stuffs it there.

CUT TO:

INT. SIDE WALK

Jamie walks down the side walk with Laura, and
they approach her house.

INT. LAURA'S HOUSE - CONTINUOUS

Laura and Jamie step inside and sit down onto a
couch, as Laura puts "Nightmare On Elm Street"
in the VCR.

JAMIE
Oh man do we have to watch this shit AGAIN?

LAURA
Just because you despise horror movies doesn't
mean you have to ruin it for me. I love this movie!

JAMIE
Oh yes I totally agree - a bunch of silly little air
heads run around and get killed with the stupidest
deaths and in the end the brainless heroine defeats
the even brainless killer blah, blah, blah the end.

LAURA
You suck. Horror movies make life… fun! Did you
know that there is gonna be this movie called
October 31st about this girl named Lori Stade and
she lives in this town called Hoddanfeld and her
friend Anna and her go off to baby sit, but this guy
called Mickey Millers comes and kills Anna, then
her friend Lilly who had sex with her boyfriend
Bobby, and then Lori finds their dead bodies and
meets up with Mickey! She runs around screaming
in the final 10 minutes and she kills him --- um I
mean this guy named Dr. Loomos kills him.

JAMIE
That sounds awfully familiar…

LAURA
Oh?

JAMIE
Yeah well anyway.

LAURA
Hey you know what I heard? I heard that they're
making a sequel to October 31st, Lori goes to a
Hospital right after the first, and Mickey goes after
her! He kills all the nurses and stuff their, when
finally Dr. Loomos saves Lori yet again, and they
blow each other up!

JAMIE
How do you know so much about these things?

LAURA
I have no idea.

JAMIE
Hey, as a matter of fact they're making this movie
called Saturday the 14th, its about some guy named
Jase Vorhays' Mother that goes around to kill all
these counselors at a camp called Camp Crystal
River.

LAURA
Um I think you're referring to -

JAMIE
Anyway I think I better go before a gory part
comes up on screen.

ON screen we see TINA getting sliced up in the
bedroom.

LAURA
(watching the tv)
Too late.

All of the sudden a FIGURE with a white MASK
on LEAPS UP from behind the couch with a knife
and lets out a loud deafening roar.

Laura and Jamie all scream. Laura stops herself ---
then rips off the mask to discover the goofy grin of
her younger brother DYLAN.

LAURA
Dylan you fuck!

Dylan falls to the floor laughing in contentment as
Jamie groans.

JAMIE
I better be on my way.

LAURA
Ok bye. (To Dylan) How many times did mom say
NOT to play with knives?

EXT. LAURA'S HOUSE

Jamie steps outside and walks towards her
apartment.

INT. LOBBY

Jamie steps inside, and walks over to the elevator.

INT. ELEVATOR

She hums patiently till the elevator gets to her
floor. It lets out a shrill "ding" and it opens.

EXT. ELEVATOR

Jamie steps out and walks to her door. She brings
out a set of keys and pushes one into the slot, and
realizes its already open.  Jamie looks at it
curiously and pushes the door open.

INT. APARTMENT

She steps in and gasps. Her place is a wreck, book
shelves turned over,  broken glass spewed
everywhere, papers lying around, scattered in a
unattractive mess.

JAMIE
Shit!

Jamie wastes no time, and turns off the lights.  She
slowly hurries into the kitchen and grasps a large
butcher knife.

JAMIE'S POV
We scan through the dark apartment, trying to find
the burglar.

REVERSE SHOT

JAMIE
Show yourself!!!!!!!!!!

Silence.

All of the sudden a dark FIGURE rushes by. Jamie
turns around like lightning and tries to make out
who it is.

JAMIE'S POV
Right in front of the door we see a dark Figure,
something shiny in his hand, possibly a knife.
Emanating from him is a very low, agonizing
breathing noise.

He comes more into view to realize that its
MICHAEL.

Jamie looks at him with squinted eyes, but all of
the sudden he's GONE.

JAMIE
What the --?!

INT. STREETS

We pan around the streets, until we see that
LAURA is walking down them.

She stops in front of a small suburban home and
walks up to the porch.

Laura raps on the door, and a few moments later a
tall, handsome jock-like guy answers. This is her
boyfriend, DEREK.

LAURA
Derek, hi!

She enters.

INT. DEREK'S HOUSE

LAURA
Your parents home?

DEREK
No, they're still at the bank.

LAURA
(throwing her arms around him)
Well good, because that gives us more play and
less work.

They pull in for a kiss, then immediately they drop
to the floor and make out.

In fact they make out so much that they don't
notice the SHAPE sneaking in through the door
and walking deeper into the house.

EXT. DEREK'S HOUSE -
EXTABLISHING/DUSK

INT. DEREK'S HOUSE

Laura and Derek finish up.

DEREK
Wow. I'll see you at the Halloween Dance, Laura.
Ok?  I still have some homework to finish up.

LAURA
Alright, I'll see you there!

They give each other a goodbye kiss, and Laura
exits.

Derek looks back at her, and turns around to
discover MICHAEL with a wood chopping axe.

The Shape stares at him.

Derek gasps and steps back. The Shape advances
to him and grabs him by the neck.

Derek tries to get away, but instead the SHAPE
swipes his head off in one clean stroke, and then
heads for Laura.

INT. RECREATION CENTER - NIGHT

Sherrie now has the dance room set up perfectly,
punch tables, Halloween décor, dance floor,
everything.

She steps up to the podium to make an
announcement to the decorators.

SHERRIE
(through the mike)
Ok people, I think we did enough, the dance is
gonna start in 20 minutes, so finish up whatever
you have and hurry!

Sherrie steps out of the dance room, and out of the
Center.

EXT. RECREATION CENTER

Sherrie walks a while till she comes upon her two
other friends.

SHERRIE
Hey Laura, who did you get to baby sit Dylan?

LAURA
I got Molly.

JAMIE
But I thought you said ---

LAURA
Screw what you thought I said! Lets bust a move
at the dance!

They high 5 each other and head for the back for
the Recreation center.

The Shape slowly follows.

INT. RECREATION CENTER - DANCE ROOM
- LATER

Everyone is having a blast, loud music can be
heard for blocks, and people are loving it.

We see LAURA with a sad expression on her face.

JAMIE
What's wrong?

LAURA
Derek hasn't shown yet! I think he wants us to
break up!

JAMIE
No, I'm sure he's just got car trouble.

LAURA
I'm gonna go look for him.

EXT. RECREATION CENTER

Laura heads out and walks down the road.

LAURA
Derek?? Where are you???

She walks down the sidewalk and hears a slight
NOISE coming from somewhere near her. Laura
stops briefly, trying to detect the sound, and then
slowly continues to walk.

More noises as Laura stops completely.

LAURA
Derek that isn't funny.

More noises.

LAURA
Derek stop.

Silence.

LAURA
Hello?

She walks behind a tree and inspects the area.

LAURA
Derek I'll kill you if this is a joke.

A loud BANG.

Laura shrieks.

She stops fearfully, then spins around to see the
SHAPE standing right behind her raising the knife.

Laura screams at the top of her lungs when the
KNIFE hurls through the air, and hits Laura as we-

CUT TO:

INT. RECREATION CENTER - THAT
MOMENT

Jamie walks over to Sherrie, who is putting
secretly putting some liquor in the punch bowl.

JAMIE
What are you doing?

SHERRIE
(stopping)
Um nothing.

JAMIE
Yeah I bet. Have you seen Laura around?

SHERRIE
No, the last I heard from her is she went to look
for Derek.

JAMIE
I hope she didn't do anything to stupid.

SHERRIE
Yeah like run into a psycho killer!

They both scoff in unison, not knowing the irony
they just displayed.

JAMIE
Anyway. What is going to happen now?

SHERRIE
Yeah, well--- Oh, wait! (running to the podium)
Ok, people. Now we have our Official Halloween
Sounds of Movies contest. We choose 3 of the
most honorable Horror Film fans who entered in
the draw, and give them sounds from Various
Horror films. Whoever gets 3 wrong looses, and
whoever comes out last wins!

The crowd applauds as Sherrie reaches into a hat
full of names and pulls 3 out.

SHERRIE
(reading them)
May I have… Tina Grey…

Tina runs screaming in delight up onto the stage.

SHERRIE
(continued)
… Rod Lane…

Rod runs up beside Tina.

SHERRIE
… and Glen Lantz.

Glen runs up beside Rod.

SHERRIE
Give it up for Tina, Rod and Glen!

The crowd claps.

SHERRIE
Ok, Tina, I want you to tell me which movie came
out of this sound… (pushes button on tape
recorder)

WOMAN'S VOICE FROM RECORDER
Nancy!!!! NANCY!!!!!! Save me from… (Man's
voice) FREDDY! (end)

TINA
That would be from Nightmare on Elm Street!

The crowd applauds yet again.

SHERRIE
Ok, you're up next Rod.

She presses the recorder.

WOMAN'S VOICE
Kill her mommy! Kill her! Yes Jason.

ROD
(stumped a bit)
Friday the 13th!

The crowd applauds AGAIN.

SHERRIE
Glen you're next…

EXT. RECREATION CENTER

Jamie steps outside, and looks around.

JAMIE
Laura?? Derek?? You out here?

UNKNOWN POV
We're staring at Jamie from behind some bushes.

JAMIE
Hello? Where are you guys??

Jamie walks around for a while, when suddenly…

LAURA'S body falls from the low roof and
DROPS smack dab right in front of JAMIE.

JAMIE'S POV
As we stare down helplessly at the bloody body of
Laura.

REVERSE SHOT

Jamie screams bloody murder and puts her hands
over her face. She runs back into the Recreation
center in a mad rush.

INT. RECREATION CENTER / DANCE ROOM

Jamie runs inside, and looks up at the Podium.

Glen has answered to his sound byte, but he got it
wrong.

SHERRIE
(from Podium)
Oh I am so sorry Glen! The answer was " The
Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3"! So sorry!

Glen grumbles as Jamie runs up crying to the
stage.

She pushes Sherrie out of the way and takes the
mike.

JAMIE
(half hysteric)
So sorry for the interruption but their has been
word that there is a COCKROACH
INFESTATION somewhere and they're headed
towards us! Please leave immediately.

In a beat EVERYONE clears the room.

All except Jamie, and Sherrie who has the death
touch in her face.

SHERRIE
WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING??????

JAMIE
LAURA IS DEAD! SOMEONE KILLED
HER!!!!!!!!!!!! THAT'S WHY EVERYONE
MUST LEAVE OR ELSE HE'LL COME BACK!

SHERRIE
OR WHO WILL COME BACK?!

Jamie pauses, then goes on.

JAMIE
MICHAEL MYERS!!!!!

A slight awkward pause, then Sherrie speaks up.

SHERRIE
How do you know Michael is doing this???

JAMIE
I JUST KNOW!!! NOW WE HAVE TO GET OUT
OF HERE BEFORE---

All of the sudden the POWER fades out and blinks
a couple of times, then goes out for good.

JAMIE
Oh no.

SHERRIE
This is just great, JUST GREAT.

EXT. VARIOUS LOCAL OF RECREATION
CENTER

We see MICHAEL has cut the power out, his
knife slashed along the power lines.

Michael walks till he comes upon a Security guard.
The guard looks at him for a second, then speaks
up.

GUARD
Hey Pal, what are you doing with a knife?

The Shape slowly walks to him.

GUARD
Hey, hey, watch it----

Michael grabs him by the neck and slams him
against the building. The guard screams, as
Michael brings out his knife and shoves it up his
stomach again and again.

The guard falls dead and gutted to the floor, blood
slowly surrounding him.

Michael reaches down and grabs the master key
from him.

MICHAEL'S POV
We walk along many locals of the Recreation
center, and lock every exit and entrance, except
one, for Michael to get in himself.

INT. RECREATION CENTER

STILL MICHAEL'S POV
We lock the entrance we just came in, and then
drops the keys to the floor.

INT. HALL WAY

Michael slowly walks down the hallway, checking
rooms and such for Jamie.

INT. DANCE ROOM

Sherrie walks over to a table and picks up the
phone.

SHERRIE
Shit, no dial tone.

JAMIE
(half crying)
Don't you see what's happening? Michael is HERE
and he's after us and he wont stop until I'M dead!
He'll kill anyone who gets in his way!

SHERRIE
You are one sick bitch, you know that?

From somewhere into the hall, the 2 girls here
footsteps vastly approaching them.

SHERRIE
(relieved)
That must be a security guard or something.

Sherrie goes over to open the door and we see
MICHAEL standing in the frame, knife raised with
a death grip.

Jamie and Sherrie scream as the BLADE stabs into
Sherrie's arm.

Sherrie grasps her bloody wound, as Jamie pulls
her along as they rush to the end of the room.

They find their way into a small office and slam
the door just as Michael reaches them.

INT. SMALL OFFICE

We hear from outside Michael is banging wildly on
the door, trying to get in.

SHERRIE
Oh god what do we do????

JAMIE
(looking around the room and seeing the air vent)
The air vent!!!!!!

SHERRIE
No way!

JAMIE
DO YOU SEE ANY OTHER ALTERNATIVE???!

MICHAEL'S HAND bursts into the door, his knife
swinging wildly.

Jamie screams, and opens up the hatch to the vent.
 

Sherrie crawls in, alongside Jamie.  She closes the
door just as MICHAEL makes his way into the
room.

Michael walks over to the hatch as he MEETS
FACE TO FACE THROUGH THE BLINDED
HATCH WITH JAMIE.

Jamie stares helplessly in fear as SHERRIE starts
to drag her down the vent in a hurry.

INT. AIR VENT

Sherrie and Jamie pant wildly as they follow the
twists and turns of the metal walls in the vent.

SHERRIE
I think we lost him.

JAMIE
Well first of all we have to try to find our way out
of here.

SHERRIE
Well that's all good and nice but HOW.

JAMIE
(teasing)
If ITS and BUTS were candy and nuts then -

SHERRIE
Shut your yap! I think Michael heard us.

All of the sudden THE SHAPE bursts through the
base of the vent DIRECTLY IN FRONT OF
SHERRIE and grabs her by the neck.

Jamie screams and tries to pull Sherrie away from
Michael's grip. She tries and tries but, too late.
Michael has strangled her completely, and now she
is dead.

Sherrie's dead body falls down from the vent's
broken base and slams onto the ground below.

Jamie's screams are mixed with crying as she
PUNCHES Michael in the face.

This has no effect on him, so he lunges at her with
the knife.

Jamie falls from the crack as well, and lands beside
Sherrie's dead body.

She gets up in a mad rush and speeds down the
hall, with Michael following along in the air vent
above.

INT. HALL WAY

Jamie runs down the hallway and clears into the
auditorium.

INT. AUDITORIUM - A BIT LATER

Jamie is setting up a trap for Michael. She runs
along some string above the door, and attached to
it is a Jack Hammer, and the string to release it is
set on the door knob.

She also has some other traps set along the
auditorium which she is now putting the finishing
touches on.

Jamie runs into a hiding place and awaits Michael
to come in.

In a beat MICHAEL turns the knob, steps inside,
the string unfolds and IMMEDIATELY the Jack
Hammer swings down from the location above the
door and SMACKS MICHAEL in the groin.

Its as if Michael is about to scream out a curse,
and he falls to the ground in total pain.

Jamie lets out a victory wail and runs deeper into
the auditorium.

Michael gets back up hastily and walks after her.

Jamie smirks as Michael steps on a latch set on the
ground which releases a tank of oil, as it SPEWS
Michael all over his body, soaking him completely.
 

Michael steps back in shock, blinded momentarily
and continues to walk after Jamie.

Jamie turns a corner and lashes out with a bag of
prop feathers.

Michael gets hushed under a soft cloud of feathers,
and finally they settle, sticking to Michael.

Jamie reaches out and kicks him in the stomach.

Michael ushers back, as Jamie bats him in the head
with a prop repeatedly.

She knees him in the nuts, and slams a hammer
down onto his back.

Michael falls down on the ground, seemingly dead.
 

Jamie steps back, and lets out a sigh of relief…

WHEN SUDDENLY MICHAEL SPURTS TO
LIFE AND GRABS JAMIE ON THE LEG AND
DRAGS HER DOWN.

Jamie shrieks and bats Michael away till he lets go.

But yet again he keeps coming.

JAMIE
Shit!

Jamie runs backstage, up to the stage and runs up
the catwalk.

The Shape follows, with "The Shape Stalks
Theme" starting up.

Jamie picks up various things she finds along the
catwalk and throws them at Michael, such as
props, tools, books, etc.

JAMIE
LEAVE ME ALONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

She runs into a back room and slams the door.

INT. ROOM

Jamie opens up another door to reveal a stairway
to the roof.

She looks back, then runs up the stairs in a hurry
as Michael splinters the frame of the door and
steps in.

INT. ROOF

Jamie runs up onto the roof and looks around.

She turns back and sees MICHAEL approaching.

JAMIE
NO!!!!!!!!!

She runs and runs and runs and stops behind a
large power box.

She pants wildly when suddenly -

MICHAEL JUMPS UP IN FRONT OF HER
and Jamie screams.
 

Jamie runs to the edge of the roof, as a loud
SIREN is heard in the background.

She looks into the distance to see some COP
CARS coming towards the Recreation center.

JAMIE
(waving her arms back and forth)
HELP MEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Shape comes up behind her, and stabs her
violently in the back, pushing the knife in far.

Jamie lets out a gasp, then a loud SCREAM OF
PAIN as she falls off of the roof and SLAMS
DOWN HARD onto the ground below.

MICHAEL'S POV
Jamie is lying DEAD on the ground.

ALL OF THE SUDDEN the police come up
behind him and start to shoot Michael repeatedly.

Michael jerks violently as bullets rip into him, and
finally he falls on the ground.

OFFICER
Sheriff, should we take him to the coroner?

SHERIFF
No. No. He's still alive and I know it. Send him to
that Insane Asylum they have in Morningside. He
wont escape.

Ambulance workers pick up Michael and put him
in a stretcher, and wheel him into the Ambulance.

The Ambulance drives far off of sight, until it
reaches Morningside Institution.

The rest goes like Halloween 1998.

Roll Credits.

THE END
