Halloween's End

FADE IN:

The glimmering logo of DIMENSION FILMS appears.

Shot of old building.

Herds of reporters.

A man from inside comes out. DETECTIVE JOHN HOLMES.

HOLMES
Stay calm! Everything is
under control!

Reporters ask questions, most are unheard.

REPORTER
Is the killer Michael
Myers?!

ZOOM OUT

A small TV screen. The same thing that was viewed before is seen, only from the set.

From the TV set everything freezes. The reporters stop moving, the police stop, everything. Except Holmes. He grabs the camera and brings it to his face, which looks closer to him from the TV set.

HOLMES
Forget everything you've
heard about him, he doesn't
only kill on Halloween, he
isn't invulnerable, and he
isn't watching at this
moment. He is pure evil,
and now he's back. And
anyone is his victim. Now
you can leave or stay, but
if you stay, then you will
bare witness the capturing
of the most brutal serial
killer of all time . . .

The channel where Holmes is on changes. Now a bright orange pumpkin appears before us on the screen.

VOICE
I'm here, I have always been.
I watch you as you wash
dishes. I hear you when
you talk on the phone.
Now it's my time to kill,
again.

QUICK FLASHES

-- Holmes running down a flight of stair with a pistol.

-- Shadows moving around dark hallways.

-- Holmes running in the streets with a pistol, pointing it.

-- The shape's shilouette in the middle of an empty street.

The TV set turns off. It's all quiet.

The TV turns on.
