The Clown At Midnight

Dimension Films presents......

A Grim Reaper Production.....

A JH picture for the year 2000....

(Scene opens. A girl screams in terror. Several college kids run through a dusty corridor in an old theatre)

Mickey: What the HELL's going on??

(They reach the main stage. Kate Williams, the heroine, is holding on to John Tate. She is clearly terrified)

Kate: It was him!! He's returned.....he's coming to get me.....

(Scene cuts to black. Lightning flashes, showing the face of a demented clown smiling at the screen. Opera music can be heard in the BG)

(Opera music plays as scene opens to a montage of killings):

(A middle aged woman is attacked on a dark staircase by a brightly dressed clown)

(The shadowy figure of the clown runs down a small tunnel)

(John and Kate and Victoria are in a dressing room)

Kate: There must be a secret passage in here SOMEWHERE!

Victoria: God! You REALLY need to get help!

(Cut to scene showing the clown stab a college student in the back in a big library)

Student: AAaaack!!

(Cut to a car chase on the dark lonely highway. Kate, in one car, sees the tragic opera clown in the other. She screams as the clown stares at her)

Mickey: I don't get it with you guys!

(Cut to scene where 6 students look at John and Kate on the stage. Mickey is annoyed)

Mickey: I don't see what the big deal is! It's just a clown!

(Cut to another student, alone in the theatre, being choked to death in the aisle seats from behind)

(Cut to John explaining Kate's fear to the group)

John: Clowns are an interesting phenomenon. When you see a clown at the circus, you laugh cuz he looks funny, acts funny....harmless enough......

(Scene shows Kate and friends at the circus. They are under the big top, enjoying the main show as clowns run up to them and do their antics. Kate is a little unnerved by one that stares and smiles at her)

John: Now....think of that SAME clown on your doorstep at midnight.......

(POV shows the front door of someone's house open. The clown's form is scene in the doorway, accentuated by the lightning and rainstorm outside. He has a wide eyed look and a nasty smile

John: .....I find THAT pretty damn scary....

(Cut to scene of several students with John trying to escape the building)

Ashley: Oh, God!! He's coming to get us!!

John: We've been locked in!!

Franklin: I can't believe I signed up for this class!! Extra credit my A-

(Scene cuts to a macabre display of two shadows on a wall. Tragic opera music continues to play. The clown's bigger, bulkier shadow is gripping the neck of the smaller more fragile shadow violently. A scream is heard as the smaller shadow's neck is snapped fatally)

(Scene cuts to black ominously.....Scene opens with John by himself on stage. He is holding an axe and is on the verge of exploding with rage)

John: YOU WANT A PIECE OF ME!!?? I'M RIGHT HERE, CHUCKLES!!! DON'T FORGET YER WATER BALLOONS AND RUBBER CHICKEN, CUZ WE'RE GONNA PARTY TONITE CLOWNBOY!!!!!!

(Scene cuts to black as he yells angrily)
