OPENING SEQUENCE: Black background. Background music Halloween theme, a major
hip dance mix of the theme. We see a poster of Halloween 7, then 6, then 5, then 4, jump

Fade to:

EXT.: PRECINCT 13 PRODUCTIONS

We see a girl, late teens, entering the building.

INT.: PRECINCT 13 PRODUCTIONS

We see the same girl, entering into the lobby. She walks over to the desk where the clerk is
sitting, talking on a phone.
 

Girl: Excuse me.
Clerk:(into phone) Hold on a moment. (To the girl) May I help you?
Girl: Yes, I have an appointment with John Carpenter.
Clerk: And who may I ask is here?
Girl: Tell him it's Laurie Strode.
Clerk:(into phone) I'll have to call you back.(She hits a few numbers and waits) Yes, Mr.
Carpenter? (pause) A Laurie Strode is here to see you.(pause) Ok.(she hangs up the phone and
turns to Laurie) Mr. Carpenter will be with you in a moment.

Laurie Strode walks over to a wall with posters that are framed. Posters "Dark Star",
"Resurrection of Bronco Billy", and "Assault on Precinct 13". Laurie leans forward and gets
a look at the credits.

Laurie's POV: POSTER CREDITS

We see writing: "Directed by John Carpenter". We look back at Laurie. She smiles.

Voice:(off screen) Laurie!

We turn around to see a young John Carpenter come up.

Laurie: John!

They hug each other, glad to see each other.

John: I was wondering when you were going to come around, where've you been?
Laurie: Hiding.
John: From who, you're mother? She didn't catch you smoking a joint did she?
Laurie: No. Can we talk in your office?
John: How about we do lunch?
Laurie: Ok.

INT.: HAMBURGER HAMLET

We see John and Laurie sitting in a booth near an window. John reads through the beginning of
the screenplay which is titled "The Babysitter Murders". He sets the thing down, and looks at
Laurie.

John: Laurie, you have written a gold mine!
Laurie: John, you don't have to say that if you don't like it.
John: I like it, Laurie. It is amazing! How did you come up with this?
Laurie: You remember Michael Myers, don't you?
John: Yeah, the kid who killed his sister in '63.
Laurie: Well, as it turns out, John, what you are reading is based on true events that happened
last year... on Halloween night. Myers broke out, John. He broke out and came after me.
John: Where?
Laurie: The Doyle house, I was babysitting Tommy Doyle.
John: I remember babysitting you. It was a while ago.
Laurie: I remember what you used to tell me. That you would become a movie director. And you've
really done it.
John: Yeah. It's hard to come up with new ideas.
Laurie: Why did you lie?
John: About what?
Laurie: About living in Bowling Green? Why didn't you say you lived in Haddonfield?
John: Laurie, I hate that town. It never grows, it's too involved in the past, so I said grew
up in Bowling Green.
Laurie: So, will you do it? Will you make "The Babysitter Murders" possible? I mean, you always
said you wanted to be a director.
John: Sure, Laurie. I'll do my best.
Laurie: John, I would also like to work on both parts 1 and 2.
John: 2? You mean you made a sequel?
Laurie: Well, with what happened, one movie just isn't enough to cover the whole story.
John: Ok, so you want to work on the film?
Laurie: Yes, uncredited.
John: Uncredited? Why?
Laurie: I don't want people to think that the Laurie they see on screen is still the same old
Laurie in real life. That and I want you to take credit for writting the screenplay... What do
you say?
John:(pause) Well.... (pause)Debra and I did work long and hard on this screenplay... it should
be far to show what we written.

John cracks a smile. All of a sudden, a man comes up.

Man: Hello, John Carpenter?
John: Yes?
Man: Hi.
John: Oh, wow. Donald Pleasence!

The man turns out to be Donald Pleasence.

Donald: Hello.
John: Wow, hi. How you doing?
Donald: A little bit underwinded, but I'm still standing.
John: Oh(turning to Laurie), Laurie.. this is..
Laurie:(cutting him off) Donald Pleasence. I know John, you used to show me a lot of films
that starred him.
John:(turning back to Donald) Donald, this is Laurie Strode, a dear friend of mine from High
School.
Donald: Pleased to meet you, Ms. Strode.
Laurie: Likewise.
John: Please, have a seat.

Donald takes a seat next to John.

John: So, wait brings you by? Picking up a burger?
Donald: Well, I was looking for you.
John: Me? Why?
Donald: Let me explain it first. I have two teenage daughters, and they heard about your film
"Assault on Precinct 13". They had been begging me to take them to see it. When I did, I saw the
work of direction you did, along with the writing. I loved what you did. It reminded me a lot of
"Night of the Living Dead" and I must say a job well done.
John: Thanks.
Donald: Well, the reason why I came is to see if you are doing another film, and if so, if I
could star in it.
John: As a matter of fact, Donald, Debra Hill and I finished a screenplay called "The Babysitter
Murders".
Laurie: Hey John, come to think of it, he could be the perfect person to play Doctor Loomis.
Donald: Doctor Loomis?
Laurie: Yeah. Doctor Sam Loomis.
Donald: What does he do?
Laurie: John, do you want me to explain it to him?
John: Go for it.
Laurie: Well, Loomis is a doctor to a mental patient who escapes 15 years after being commited.
And Loomis decides to hunt this patient down in the patient's hometown. The whole time, Loomis
thinks that the patient is not human, but pure evil itself.
Donald: Wow. I like it. Can I do it?
John: Well, we'll begin pre-production soon like in a week or two, I'm sure I'll give you a
chance to try out.
Donald: Thanks. Well, I must be off.

Donald gets up.

Donald: See you at rehearsals.

Donald walks off screen.

John: Laurie?
Laurie: Yeah.
John: You've got it. You're a part of the crew as supervisor.
Laurie: Ok.

John: Ready? And ACTION!!!!

INT: DOYLE HOUSE, UPSTAIRS OUTSIDE THE DOOR OF THE MAIN BEDROOM.

Screen fades outside the doorway of the Doyle Master Bedroom. We see a young woman step
slow out of the doorway. Her left arm covered in blood. We then see a shadow fall over her. We
see the Shape come from the doorway. He spins her around and begins to strangle her, shaking
her like a rag doll. We then see a man come up the stairs to see what is happen. The woman
rips the mask off of the Shape's head. The woman falls to the floor. The Shape grabs his mask.
The man pulls out a six-shooter and aims it at the Shape. The Shape pulls the mask over his
face. The man shoots the Shape. The Shape falls into the doorway. The woman wails covering
her ears. The man runs up into the room.

INT: DOYLE MASTER BEDROOM.

The Shape is standing in front of the opened balcony doors looking at the man. The man lifts
his gun and begins to fire. One shot after another, the Shape is knocked off the balcony. We
can hear the body hit hard on the ground outside. We cut back to the man holding the gun.
He pulls the trigger to catch an empty bullet. The man is Dr. Sam Loomis. Laurie, the
woman, moves her hands down from her ears. She looks at Loomis. She's nearly in tears.

Laurie: What's the Boogeyman?

Loomis turns to look at her.

Loomis: As a matter of fact, it was.

We see Loomis walk over to the balcony. He stands looking down. Then he looks up and around.
Laurie begins to cry.

John: CUT!!! That was perfect!!!

We see John jump out of his chair. He runs over to the balcony and looks
down.

John: NICK! YOU OK?

John's POV: Nick in a crash pad.

A young Nick Castle pulls off the mask. His hair is messed up. He'd dressed in a mecanhic's
suit.

Nick: Yeah! How did that do?
John: Perfect.
Nick: Good, I don't want to do that again! This is the last time I play the Shape! There's no
way you or anyone else is ever gonna get me to play the Shape again!

John turns around to the cameraman.

John: Did you get it?
Cameraman: Yes. We got it.
John: YES! ALRIGHT!!

John heads out of the room. Everyone behind him.

EXT: DOYLE HOUSE.

John walks out to the center of the lawn and stops he turns to face the group.

John: ATTENTION!!! ATTENTION EVERYONE!!! We got to do one last thing before we can
finish the film. And that's paint, furnish, and fix the Myers house. In order to do that, we'll begin to
work on it tomorrow. Everyone will get a chance to do a job. I would like to thank the owners of the
houses we used to here for the Doyles and the Wallaces.
Jamie: WAS FIXING THE HOUSE A PART OF MY CONTRACT?

Everyone begins to laugh.

Donald Pleasence stands to young Jamie Lee Curtis's right while Laurie stands to the left of
her.

Donald: I don't know. WAS IT JOHN??

Everyone laughs again.

Laurie: Jamie, I don't think it was, but its the only way to finish the movie.
John: The electrictions, carpenters, and I will work on the inside of the house while everyone
else will work on the outside of the house, painting it white.

A young P.J. Soles stands next to Laurie, puffing on a cigarette.

P.J.: That won't be hard. (takes puff)I have a father who paints for a living. He taught me a
lot about painting. Something to fall back on if this movie doesn't work out.
Laurie: Trust me, it will work out.

Laurie looks over at P.J. and smirks.

John: I also like to thank Ms. Laurie Strode for helping us with this film. Do you like to say
something to the crew?
Laurie: Sure.

Laurie walks up to the spot where John is and trades places with him. She looks at the cast
and crew.

Laurie: What you've been doing is replaying the past. The night of Halloween where a madman
was on the loose. You have played real people. People who were killed. People who died. And
I was the only one he was after. I'm sure you realized that you had filled the shoes of dead people
for a bit of time. And it was hell for me. I was stalked and nearly butchered like Annie, Linda,
and Bob. But I got off easy. Loomis saved my life twice. He died in that blast at the hospital, but
Michael still survived. Even though And what you all did here was to tell a true story. A group of murders, one after the other. I hope
you all learned that. Even if you play a person, doesn't mean that person never existed. May you
have a nice time and hope to see you again.

Everyone cheers and claps. John walks up to Laurie.

John: Go on home. And thank you.
Laurie: Thank you.

Laurie walks off and the crew begins to pack up their equipment. Laurie gets into a 1958
Plymouth Fury and drives off.

Fade to black.

INT.: MALL

We see, in slow motion, a guy running. He is in his teens, looking back over his shoulder, trying
to run away from someone... or something. All of a sudden, we see a figure come out of the side of
the screen. All we have is a backview of the figure, who appears to be carrying a butcher knife.
The guy tripsa and falls over. He lands at the mouth of a stairway, the figure close. He moves and
begins to fall down the stairway. Before he hits the main floor, he disappears in a pool of
blackness. We pull back to see the mask.... the mask of the Shape. The Shape lifts the knife into
the air and brings it down.

INT.: BEDROOM

Guy: AAAAHHHH!

He bolts upright in his bed. Sweat pores down his face. It was a nightmare. He was having a
nightmare. He lays back down, glad it was just a dream.

INT.: STRODE HOUSE/KITCHEN

We find an older Laurie Strode, at least 20 years older then we last saw her. The guy comes down
the stairs and enters the kitchen. He is happy as can be, and has forgotten about the nightmare
he had.

Guy: Morning.
Laurie: Good morning, Larry.

Larry just stands, smiling.

Laurie: What's got you in a good mood?

Larry quits smiling, surprised.

Larry: Don't tell me you forgot again.
Laurie: Forgot about what?
Larry: My birthday mom.
Laurie: It's October 31st already?
Larry:(sacasticly) Like yeah. I can't believe it.. you forgot it again!

Laurie: Here,(holding roll out) Happy Birthday.
Larry: No.
Laurie: It's ok. Take it.
Larry: No. No all together. This is the last straw mom.
Laurie: Larry, I...
Larry(cutting her off) No. Forget about it. I don't understand you mom. Everytime this year,
you get nervous and you forget about my birthday, or pospone it until the next day. I am tired
of it. When was the last time I had a birthday ON my birthday?
Laurie: Larry...
Larry: No... Listen. I bet you didn't even get anything for me, did you? This has been the 17th
time in 16 years! I am 17 years-old and you keep forgetting my birthday!
Laurie: Well sorry, Larry. I just gett a little to busy around this time of year.
Larry: You're always busy.

Larry walks over to the door, exiting the house. On his way out, he picks up his skateboard. He
closes the door behind him and heads off. Laurie just stands, shaking her head.

Laurie:(to herself) What has happened to me?

Larry: I might be able to take it.
Matt:(pause) I'm going to need you to take the store hours till closing time.
Larry: What?
Matt: Look, Larry, I know today is your birthday, but everyone here has a life they need to
attend to. I'm sure you understand.
Larry: So you leave me here from now until the Graveyard Shift and closing?
Matt: I'm sorry, Larry. Everyone else is either looking over their cousins or are going trick
or treating with their kids or going to help their egos at a Halloween party.
Larry: So basically, I'm up the creek.

Larry's POV: Television set with movie playing.

Larry is watching the director's cut of DAWN OF THE DEAD. We see Larry again, we can also
hear the film playing in the background.

Fran(from the movie): It's really all over.

At the same time as a gunshot goes off, a hand comes up on Larry's shoulder. Larry spins
around in fright. A girl is standing next to the counter

Girl: Hay little bro.
Larry: Jamie, you scared the hell out of me!
Jamie: Sorry. I came by to see how you were doing. How's business been today?
Larry: Sold a guy a copy of HOW TO BUILD A MONSTER by Tom Savini.
Jamie: Is that your copy of DAWN OF THE DEAD your watching?

Larry: I called everyone I know who works here to see who would watch the store until closing

to stay he until closing. You're gonna have to tell mom to postpone my birthday until tomorrow,

Jamie leaves the store and Larry turns back to the TV set.

Cut to:

EXT: MERCY HOSPITAL.

We see people heading in and out of the building.

INT: HOSPITAL ROOM.

We see a man who's rapped in bandages. A television is on. We cut to the front of him the only
thing we see is his eyelids. We hear the television in the background. Then we cut to the screen
of the television.

Announcer: Welcome Back to Hard Copy.
Terry: We've all grown into the Halloween film series. From 1978 up till now Michael Myers has
haunted us all. But did you know that Michael Myers, Laurie Strode, and Dr. Loomis are all
real people? Well we dug deep and got the hard truth about the film series. Here's the scoop
on The Halloween Epic.

We see the chase scene from the Wallace house to the Doyle house.

Laurie(on television): TOMMY!!!(bangs on the door) TOMMY, IT'S ME!!!

Terry: Do you know who this masked murderer is? That's right it's Michael Myers from
Halloween. He stalks down his family through the Halloween series. But here's something that's
true. In 1977, Laurie Strode was stalk by Michael Myers in Haddonfield. The people there would
not allow the film to be shot in their town. Laurie Strode written the script after John
Carpenter met with Laurie Strode years after they last saw each other.

John: Well, when I spoke to her and she asked me, "Would you make this story into  a film?" and
I agreed. She helped Jamie Lee Curtis act as if she was Laurie. They both did a good job. I really
like Laurie's supervison of the films.

Terry: According to John, she work on the set as supervisor of the first two movies. Every part
that happen to have Jamie Lee Curtis in it, she would get the exact details in the entire movie.
From the scene at the school, to the ending of the Television Version of Halloween 2, Laurie helped
supervise the casting as well as set detail. Jamie Lee really looks like Laurie.

Jamie: I owe her a lot. That was my first film and she put me in her place. She taught me to
be her. And I think I owe her a lot. That's why I'm willing to do a 20th anniversy movie.

Terry: At the end of part 2 we see nothing of Michael or Dr. Loomis. Dr. Sam Loomis died in
the explosion, ending his life and hopefully to stop Michael.

We see the scene from the movie Halloween 2. Loomis holds up the lighter he got from Officer
Hunt.

Loomis: It's time Michael.

He lights the lighter and room explodes. We see a news clip of Michael being loaded into the
back of an ambulance.

Terry: Michael, of course, survived with heavy burns. He has been transported to every hospital
for the treatment of his burns. He's been in a coma throughout the entire time. And during that
time, Halloween progressed from the two films into a series with lots of fans. Even on the
information super highway.

We cut to a computer screen. We hear and see Terry type down something on the screen.

Terry: Ramsey, you have a nice time talking to other people about Halloween?
Chief... This is Ramsey:(on screen) Yes.
Terry: What about other horror films?
Chief... This is Ramsey: I like other horror films, but they just don't go well with a
Halloween chatroom.
Terry: Would you go see Halloween 7 when it comes out in theaters?
Chief... This is Ramsey: Would Michael stalk his family?

On the TV they cut back to Terry. We cut back to Michael's bandaged face. We can hear in the
background the television.

Terry: Laurie Strode didn't want to be interviewed for this story, but she lives in Los Angeles.
She has two kids. One is Jamie, the other is Larry. Larry works at the Suncoast Entertainment
Store in a shopping mall called the Galleria in Los Angeles.

Michael's eyes pop open.

Cut to:

INT: SUNCOAST ENTERTAINMENT/Later

We see Larry, carrying his skateboard. He heads into the backroom, Matt at work on some papers.

Larry: Hey Matt, I'm about to leave to get something from Burger King. You want anything?
Matt: A Whopper with large fries.
Larry: Ok, I'll be back.

Larry leaves.

Cut to:

EXT.: BURGER KING

We see Larry come out, carrying a bag of food. He sets his skateboard down on the ground and
begins to head off. A girl comes out, drinking some of her drink. She suddenly runs into The
Shape. She looks startled as first, but then continues heading off. The Shape, still wearing
hospital gown, looks on as Larry stakes off. He slowly moves over to a Station Wagon parked at
the curb. He gets in and starts up the engine. The Shape slowly follows Larry as he heads back
to the mall. We get a close up on Larry, seeing the station wagon following a little ways
behind. Larry skates off screen to...

EXT.: GALLERIA MALL/PARKING LOT

We see Larry pulls off into the park and stop the board. He kicks it up and catches it. He walks
towards the stairwell of the parking lot. Larry enters through the stairwell. The station wagon
slowly pulls by the stairwell and stops.

Shape's POV: Larry entering stairwell.

We hear heavy breathing as we see Larry enter the stairwell. The Shape pulls the car over into
an empty parking space. He gets out of the station wagon and walks over to the stairwell. He
enters.

Cut to:

INT.: SUNCOAST ENTERTAINMENT/LATER

Matt is getting ready to leave.

Matt: Ok Larry, I hope you have a nice night.
Larry: I hope I do too.
Matt: Oh yeah, I'm going to need you to put up the Halloween masks back there.
Larry: I hear you.
Matt: See you on Monday, Larry.
Larry: Ok, bye.

Matt leaves Larry alone in the store. We hear Marilyn Mansion's version of Sweet Dreams
finishing up in the background. We see Larry in a back room, picking up a box and carrying out
to a shelf where masks are. He begins to pack up the masks. New music plays in the background,
Blue Oyster Cult's (Don't Fear) The Reaper.

Shopper: Hay! Hay wait!

A shopper come up and stops Larry.

Shopper: I wanted to get one of these.
Larry: Sorry, sir. Go ahead.

The shopper looks at the masks. Larry looks at his watch.

Larry's POV: Watch

Watch reads 9:44 pm.

Shopper: Got it. Is it...? Yes! It is! It's here!
Larry: You found the mask you wanted?
Shopper: Yeah.
Larry: Ok, let ring it up and send it on it's marry way.

Larry comes up behind the cash machine. The shopper come up in front of the sales table. Larry
rings in the price and picks up the mask, about to put it in a plastic bag. He looks at the
front of the mask. It's Michael's mask.

Larry: I got a question for ya?
Shopper: What?
Larry: Who's Michael Myers?
Shopper: Who's Michael Myers? The psychopathic murderer from Halloween.
Larry: My mom never let me watch Halloween or any of the other films.
Shopper: Well, who's your mother, Joan of Arc?

Shopper begins to laugh.

Larry: No, she's Laurie Strode.

The shopper stops laughing. Larry puts the mask in the bag and hands it to the shopper.

Shopper:(shaky) What town does your mother come from?
Larry: I don't know. She never told us.
Shopper: Us?
Larry: My sister and I.
Shopper: What's your sister's name?
Larry(a little confused) Jamie.

Shopper takes the bag. And hand Larry the money.

Shopper: Keep the change. And hope Michael doesn't find out where you work. If I were you I
would move to China.

The shopper grabs the bag an exits the store. Larry walks back to the shelf where the masks are.
He's still confused. Two boys enter the store. Larry begins to put up masks.

Boy 1: Hay Larry!

Larry turns in surprise. Goes back to putting up masks.

Larry: Hay! Marty! Dan!

Marty(Boy 1): You ready to split?
Dan(Boy 2): I can't wait.
Larry: You two may have to go without me. I got a lot of masks to put up for next year.
Dan: What? And leave you here alone?
Marty: Not no, not hell no, but NO HELL NO!!!

Dan and Marty laugh. Larry grins.

Larry: One day, you two will be comedians.
Dan: What about you Larry?
Larry: I'm thinking of writer. Maybe director.
Marty: Your writing is good. Dan, a while back, Larry written this script and sent it to a motion
picture company, they liked it and they made a great film out of it.
Dan: What was the name of the script?
Larry: A Hallow Darkness.
Dan: What was the name of the film?
Larry: Madman in the dark.
Dan: What was it about?
Marty: It was about this dude, when he was six, he killed his parents on July 23. He was insane,
he heard voices telling him to do it. He was sentenced to a institution for 14 years then was
transferred to a Maximum Security prison for the rest of his life. He breaks out of the prison
and heads back to his home town...
Dan: It sounds like Halloween.
Marty: Hold! Here's where the good part comes. He kills four kids and takes a 1973 Ford truck a
hunts down this boy, who he believed was his brother. But as it turned out, the killer had a
older brother who died. And the boy he was stalking looked like him. The killer stalked the boy
using the truck, trying to run him over. But the boy was a quick thinker. He ran onto a bridge,
grabs a rope and ties it to the side of the bridge. The killer tried to run him over. The boy
jumped and the rope caught him. The truck goes fling over the edge of the bridge and crashes
into a river that was flooded. The next day, they pull out the truck and the searched it. The
body of the killer was gone.
Dan: DAMN! You wrote that? That sounded like it kicked some!
Larry: All it takes is a good idea. It evolves from the idea to a plot, then the character's form, after
that the setting and so on.
Marty: It racked number 2 on the box office charts.
Larry: Yeah. Some people have been asking me if I'm gonna write a sequel or another script.
Dan: Are ya?
Larry: Not until I get some new ideas.

Cut to:

INT: MALL

We fallow the shopper to the elevator doors of the mall. We close up on his hand as he presses
the up button. We see the doors open and then see the shopper get in.

INT: ELEVATOR

We look down at the shopper. He holds his bag tightly. He pushes the second floor button. We
look at the shopper in his face.

Shopper: I'm sorry for the kid. My god have mercy on his soul.

EXT: ELEVATOR DOORS

The doors open revealing the shopper. We see the Shape, still dressed in hospital gown
and face still rapped, standing behind the shopper. Michael puts his hand around the shopper's
mouth, muffling his screams. The doors closes. We still hear the muffled screaming of the shopper.
Then his screams go to a higher pitch, then slows to a stop. We pan down to see blood come from
underneath the doors.

EXT: ONE OF THE MALL'S ENTRANCES

We see Jason, wearing a blue janitor suit, finish locking the doors to the mall.

Jason: Hell won't be able to get out of here tonight. Happy Halloween.

He puts the keys in his pocket and walks away from the doors. We fallow him. He enters into a
janitor office. We pan back to the elevators. We hear a small ding from the elevator bell. We
see the Shape come out of the elevator, pulling on the mask that he has not worn in years.

Shape's POV: Janitor's Office Door.

The door slowly swings back closed. The Shape begins to walk over to the door. He opens it and
enters it.

INT.: OFFICE

We see Dan getting out of his Janitor's uniform. The bathroom door is hanging wide open. We see
the Shape enter the room, very quietly. Jason is not looking at him, he's too busy getting his
boots off. We see the Shape slowly move over to the bathroom. Jason hears something and turns
around. He misses the Shape as he enters the bathroom.

Jason's POV: Empty office.

There's nothing.

Jason: Hello?

We look back at Jason. He shakes his head. He walks over and enters...

INT.: BATHROOM

We find the room empty and the door still open. Jason moves over to a mirror and begins to wash
up before heading back out. He's not looking in the mirror. We see the reflection of the door.
It slowly swings open, reviling the Shape, with a scalpe. He slowly comes up behind Jason who
finishes washing up. He turns around and runs into the Shape. He looks up into the Shape's eyes.

Jason: Um, hi.(pause)

INT.: OFFICE.

We look back into the office as we hear Jason scream in pain and horror. We also
he the sound of ripping as well. All of a sudden, we hear Jason stop scream and we hear the
ripping change to the sound of the scalpe peircing flesh. The it stops.

he'll be a good gentleman and let us out.
Marty: What do you want us to do?
Larry: Wait at the doors. I'll be right back.
Dan: Don't say that!
Larry: Why?
Dan: Horror movie rule number 3: Don't say "I'll be right back." If ya do, you won't be back.
Larry: You got to stop watching those horror films.
Marty: That's what Bob said in Halloween and he got pinned up onto a door like a portrait.
Larry: Guys, you know my mom won't let me watch any of the Halloween films.

Dan and Marty stop, Larry continues.

Dan: One day, you'll see that life is a Halloween film!!!!!
Larry: The day that comes true is the day I die!!!

Marty and Dan begin to walk back to the doors.

Marty: Nice try. "One day, you'll see that life is a Halloween film!"
Dan: It's true.

Larry: Jason? Are you in there?

The door cracks open a little. Larry looks down to see a small stream of blood coming from the
crack.

Larry's POV: Small stream of blood.

Larry looks back up at the door. He pushes the door open. Larry face goes into a surprised and
shocked look. We look at a dirty mirror, seeing a blurred image of Jason's dead body. We see
Larry covering his mouth. Larry runs over to the desk and barfs into the trash can next to it.
He catches his breath and then he moves over to a board that holds the keys to the mall. He
looks at the board. The board has two key holders. One of the pieces of tape that has writing
on it says "Store's gates" and the other piece of tape says "Entrances." The keys to the
"Entrances" holder are gone. Larry grabs the keys to the "Store's gates" and runs out.

Linsy: Then what?
Nurse: He took the keys to my car and he threw me ageinst the wall. And when I came too, you
the police got here.
Linsy: Alright. Thank you. Go on home and get some rest.

The nurse walks away. A police officer walks up to Linsy.

Officer: So, what's strange about this?
Linsy: There's nothing strange about this. Except he let that nurse live while he killed 4 doctors, 2
head nurses, 5 nurses and 3 patients
Officer: Look, Detective, this has to be someone crazy. Thinking he's Michael Myers.
Linsy: It IS Michael Myers.
Officer: This is reality Detective. We are not in a movie.
Linsy: Michael Myers IS real. That the first two Halloween films were based on a true story. And
I happen to be one of the lucky ones. If I had stayed at home that night in '77, I would be dead.
Officer: Well, if that rumor that he tries to kill his family members is true, where would he go to
kill them? At home?
Linsy: He'll kill them one by one, whoever is closest to where he is. The question is, WHERE has
he gone?

INT: SUNCOAST ENTERTAINMENT

Larry picks up the phone and dials for the police. Dan and Marty have their backs turn to the gate
of the store. Larry begins to pace back and forth. As he passes the gate, we see the Shape standing,
looking in at them. We still follow Larry as he paces past the gate, the Shape disapearing out of
view. Larry turns around and paces back towards the register counter. We see the area that the Shape
was standing in, but the Shape is gone. Larry waits, wondering what's going on. All of a sudden, he
stops. He hits taps the button on the phone, clicking it. He hangs up the phone.

Larry: This is great.
Marty: What?
Larry: The phone's dead.

Larry takes a seat on the counter, next to the regester. Dan stands next to the gate, which is
closed and locked, looking out. Marty starts pacing back and forth.

Marty: That is impossible. Larry, are you sure that Jason was dead?
Larry: HIS HEAD WAS CUT OFF AND SAT IN HIS LAP! DO YOU THINK HE WOULD BE ALIVE?
Dan: That was no ordinary murder. That was a Michael Myers.
Larry: What are you talking about? Michael Myers isn't real. He's a film character! He's not
made of flesh and bone! HE'S JUST MADE OF WORDS!

Dan and Marty look at each other.

Dan: Do you want to tell him or do you want me to tell him?
Marty: I don't want to tell him.
Dan: Niether do I.

Marty and Dan pause for a moment.

Marty: Flip ya for it.

around behind the counter, finding a box marked "Store Videos." he dumps the tapes out, and picks
up a copy of HALLOWEEN. He reaches over and switches on a swtich marked "TV SETS". Michael swings
the ax again, trying to get into the store.

Marty:(off screen): DAN! COME ON!

Dan shoves the tape into the tape player under the counter and hits play.

Marty: COME ON!

Dan gets through and runs for the door. Larry takes the keys and unlocks the door to the room. They get to

front of some bushes that are there as decoration. He turns around, looking for Larry. He turns back

direction that Dan and Marty were running. He runs and then runs into something. Larry jumps back in
fright.

The elevator opens to show the shopper, who falls out of the elevator. Larry looks on in horror and screams.
He jumps up, nearly slipping on the blood and runs. Catches up with Marty and Dan. Dan tries to unlock the
door to Sears.

Marty: Tonight's his night. It's the anniversary of 1978. The night HE came home. He's going
to make sure that he finishes what he had started back in 1963. It's only a matter of time.
Larry: What do you mean? We can still run.

threw the booklet and finds a map of the mall. Larry flips it to one of the maps with numbers on
it.  Points it out to Dan.

Larry: There you go.

Dan looks at the map and looks at the keys. The numbers on the keys match the same numbers in
the booklet.

Dan: The numbers match. That means if we need to get into the stores, then we'd have to match
the numbers on the door locks.
Marty: That's a good thing. That means we don't have to try ever key to unlock the doors to a
store when Myers is on us.

Dan hands the keys over to Larry. And extra ring on the set. Keychain has writting on it.

Larry's POV: Keychain

The keychain reads "GMC JIMMY". Larry looks at Marty, then at Dan.

Larry: We have a mode of transportation.
Dan: A GMC Jimmy? Here in the Mall?
Larry: Yeah Dan.
Marty Why do they have a Sports Util. in the Mall for?
Larry: It's for the Newer Year Model. Every year, several companies would do a "Battle of the
Vechiles" type of job or "Car Wars" as some call it. They would bring in new cars and trucks
for the "War". It's a way to advertise their companies and new vechiles.
Dan: And they leave the keys here?

Laurie: Larry, please.... It's not worth it.
Larry: Mom, Loomis died to save you from Michael. Now, it's my turn to save everyone from
him.

We can hear the sounds of Police sirens from a distance.

Laurie: Larry, that's the police. Come on, you don't have to risk yourself.
Larry: My friends died because of him! If I don't end it, I would never forgive myself.
Laurie: I know how you feel, Larry. I know you must fill like hell. The same thing happened to
me.

Laurie: Loomis believed that if he could stop Michael after Midnight. November 1st. We can wait
till Midnight to stop him.

Larry looks at his watch.

Larry's POV: Watch

It reads 11:58 pm.

Laurie: Loomis only injured him. That's why he was in a coma. Loomis' theory could work, but
we need the police's help.
Larry: Mom, I can do it. We've got 2 minutes left. Go down and get the police.
Laurie: I'm not leaving you here!!!

In slow motion, Larry brings the hachet down into the glass of the skylight. We hear the glass
cracking and breaking part. We see it as it cracks open.

Larry: Lord forgive me.

The glass gives way from underneath Larry and Michael.

Laurie:(off screen) LARRY, NNNNOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Michael and Larry fall downward to the ground. We look at Michael as he hits the ground, a
peice of glass severing Michael's head from the rest of his body. It bonces off, looking
like a basketball bouncing away after missing a goal. Back on the roof, Laurie looks down.

Laurie: LARRY!!!!

We pan down and look at Larry. Laying on his side, blood pouring from his head. Laurie runs
over to the roof's entrance to the mall.

We see several police men already at work. An ambulance loads up the bodies of the victims.
We pan over to find Laurie sitting on the Mustang, Lisny standing next to her.

Linsy: I'm sorry.
Laurie: It wasn't your fault.
Linsy: Why did you come in here for? I told you Myers was in here.
Laurie: You know how I am, Linsy. I'm too protected. Why do you think I told you and Tommy to
enter the bathroom so Myers could after me?
Linsy: Do you think you could have saved Larry?
Laurie: I might have, but he saved me and everyone else. It's finally over.
Linsy: Ok. I've got some work to do.

Linsy walks away from Laurie, who watches the ambulance ride away. Then we fade to black.

Cut to:

INT: BUS

Background music:"Trigger Hippie" by Morcheeba

A yellow light flashes as the bus moves. The song "Trigger Hippie" plays from the beginning of
the scene to the end. We close up on Larry, brused, battered and bleeding. He sits in the
middle of the bus. Also on the bus, is Michael's victims from Halloween 1 & 2 & this film. There
is no driver on the bus. The way they look, they look like lifeless dolls, facing towards the
camera. Larry looks over to his left to see Loomis sitting next to him.

Larry: Dr. Loomis?
Loomis: Yes, Larry. I'm Dr. Loomis.
Larry: But.... You died.... In that explostion....
Loomis: Yes... I know. You didn't go out a good way yourself.
Larry: Where am I?
Loomis: The Afterlife. You know how there are rumors of ghosts and the so called "Life After
Death" thing?
Larry: Yeah?
Loomis: Well, this is it. All of the rumors are false. We all end up here.
Larry: Where are we going?
Loomis: Well......... We are going nowhere. The afterlife. You get used to it.
Larry: Is this Heaven?
Loomis: No.
Larry: Is this hell?
Loomis: No.
Larry: Then what is it?
Loomis: It's.......... It's........ A bus ride.

Larry turns from Loomis and looks forward. As each time the light flashes, his flesh melts, his
eyeballs disappears, his clothes rot. All that is left of Larry is his Skeleton. And then when
the light flashes He's covered with flesh and clothes then the light goes out and comes back on
 to show his Skeleton again(This repeats continueously). Then we pan back to look at the victims
of Michael Myers. Then we fade to black as the song ends. We hear the sound of people. White
lettering reads:

We look down at them.

John: And CUT!!!!!!!! That was perfect!

Edward Furlong sits up from Jamie Lee Curtis' lap.

Edward: Was that good? Do we need to do it again?
John:(off screen) No. It's perfect.

We pan over to see John Carpenter standing beside the camra. John and Laurie walk over and
help up Jamie and Edward.

John: That's a rap!!!!!!

Everyone cheers.

John: Laurie, you want to say something?
Laurie: Yes John.

She walks over next to John.

Laurie: The last time we did this, was 21 years ago. My son, Larry, died to stop Michael. I hope
you all know. That this the last time, I will do this. I want the story to end here. John, I hope
you tell everyone who sees this movie, that is based on a true story.
John: You have my word on it.
Laurie: May you have a nice night. And have a good time later on as well.

Everyone cheers. Laurie walks out of the mall to her car. She stops. She slumps down to the
side of her car and cries. She slowly gets up and gets into the car.

INT.: CAR

She gets in, closes and locks the door. She puts the keys into the ignition. She looks up, about to
start the car. She stops. Completely freezes. She notices that the windshield is fogged up, along
with the other windows.

Laurie: What the...?

EXT.: CAR

All of a sudden, a Shape coems up in the backseat, we can't see his face. Laurie can see him in
the backseat of the car from the rear-view mirror.
 
Laurie: Oh, god.... Larry?

All of a sudden, the Shape grabs ahold of Laurie and begins to stangle her. She gags, tring to call
for help, but she can't. Suddenly, the Shape slices her through open. She slowly falls over dead.
The Shape gets out of the car, but we still can't see his face. He suddenly pulls a mask over his head.
He turns around to face the camera, finding out it's Michael's mask. He walks off screen.

EXT.: SPECIAL EFFECTS TRAILER

We see two special effect crewmen putting things up. One of them stops, looking for something.

Crewman 1: What's a matter?
