In regards to the script itself, let me say once again that it sets in
so don't be confused when I refer to the events of HALLOWEEN 4 as *nine*
years ago instead of 10. The story picks up where HALLOWEEN: THE CURSE OF
MICHAEL MYERS left off. Go back and re-watch the ending if you have to.
Also, I have to say that this script is meant to be read in one sitting,
just like a film is meant to be watched in one sitting. I know that
script-readers have a tendency to read a little here and a little there,
like a novel. If you do, that's your prerogative, and I don't blame you for
not staring at a computer screen for an hour (that's how long it usually
takes me to read the whole script) and have eyes like an albino rat when
you're finished. But the fact remains that even though this is in literary
form, it is not a novel, and it really is meant to be read in one gulp, and
I urge you to at least attempt it. If you turn on the lights around you,
this reduces computer screen glare, so it won't bother your eyes as much.
Also, (heh-heh) I'd like to believe that my script will make you want to
turn the lights on anyway, at least a couple of times.
I also want to say something about the mechanics of my writing. As said,
this is my first script, and all through the drafts I fluctuated between
describing the camera choreography in minute detail to describing no camera
choreography at all. So if you notice inconsistencies in this arena, just
try to go with it. However, I tried to make sure that in every scene, there
is at least an acceptable visual description of what's going on. If a scene
confuses you in any way, just let me know and I'll fix up any major problems.
Well, I've rambled on long enough. Proceed to my script: HALLOWEEN 6 1/2:
THE LORD OF THE DEAD.
If you dare . . . >:)
