So where exactly did you say we were going?
ASHELY then turns her camera to face PETER who is driving. PETER then turns to look at ASHELY quickly.
PETER (SIMULTANEOUSLY)
Umm, I have no idea.
Turns back to look at the road. Can still see him facing the front of the car.
PETER (CONT’D)
Why don’t you ask the Prada queen where we are going?
ASHELY turns camera to look at ISABELLA who is in the backseat. Can see the 4 people sitting in the back. ISABELLA bobbing her head singing mindlessly to a song with her head phones on.

ASHELY (V.O.)
Hey Prada queen where are we going?
ISABELLA doesn’t answer. ASHELY leans her arm into the backseat. Visible cutting scars on the wrist. ASHLEY hits her on the knee.
ASHELY (V.O.)
Hey butthead where are we going?
ISABELLA, blonde, pretty, and petite, 18, jerks out of fear and takes her headphones off her head. She looks slightly startled as she looks into the camera.
ISABELLA
(CONFUSED)
Huh? What do you want?

ASHELY (V.O.)
(CHUCKLING)
I asked where are we going. Peter wants to know so he doesn’t get lost.
Can see a hand reach over and tap ASHLEY on the arm. Camera then turns to look at RIELY, 18, brown hair, who is sitting to the right of ISABELLA. He is reading a book which he puts down to look at the camera. A smile forms on his face.

RIELY
(LAUGHING)
Yeah because we all know what happened the last time this idiot got us lost.
ASHLEY (V.O.)
(LAUGHING)
Yeah, we almost ended up in Vancouver instead of Venice Beach.
PETER (V.O.)
(DEFENSIVE, LAUGHING)
Hey, babe, I didn’t do it on purpose.
Can see RIELY’s face lose his smile, but very quickly. Smile then reappears on his face. ASHLEY turns the camera to look back at PETER.
PETER (CONT’D)
And we didn’t almost end up in Vancouver.
ISABELLA (V.O.)
(CHUCKLING)
No, he’s right.
ASHELY turns the camera to look at ISABELLA.
ISABELLA
(CHUCKLING)
We didn’t almost end up in Vancouver, we were in Vancouver.
PETER (V.O)
Hey, I did not drive us all the way to Vancouver. Look will you just tell me where we are going?
ISABELLA
(BORED)
Sure. We are heading to the Adirondacks in New York, not Vancouver. And since we are already here it should be on your left.

ISABELLA
(SIGHING)
Fine I will be the bigger person and walk away. Okay? Will that make you all happy?

Can hear some people give a sigh of relief and agree.
ASHLEY (V.O)
(SOUNDING CONFUSED)
So where exactly is this party to begin with?
The camera moves around as ASHLEY goes from looking between PETER and ISABELLA. ASHLEY and camera stop moving as she looks at ISABELLA. ISABELLA places her hands on her hips.
ISABELLA
(JOKING, ANNOYED)
Don’t know and don’t care. As long as I’m far away from my mom and don’t have to go to school anymore I’m good.

I’m with you on that one.
ISABELLA
Hey, give me that camera.
ASHLEY
Why?

ISABELLA
How about a camp forest fire. This place is the definition of small.
LAUREN
(SARCASTIC)
Well, we didn’t exactly expect this many people. And if we had realized we wouldn’t meet the expectation of Princess Isabella then we would have changed the location.

ISABELLA
(SARCASTIC)
Well, at least you had me in your head when you picked out the place.


LAUREN
You got it bitch. Oh and Ashley I didn’t know you brought a camera.

ASHLEY (V.O.)

STEPHANIE turns her camera to face her. She has a smug smile on her face.
STEPHANIE
But it’s all going to be worth it when Isabella sees what I got in store for her. She won’t even know what hit her.
The sun is slowly setting behind her and the woods are getting darker and darker.
STEPHANIE (CONT’D)
So this is how it’s going to go. I’m going to go to the party and play nice, but then when its time I‘m going to wait until everyone is asleep and get back at Isabella. I’m going to shave part of her hair off then attach a black mustache to her face with super glue. Ha it will be the funniest thing in the world. I’ve got it all here in this little bag.

RYAN (V.O)
Why didn’t you remember to take it?
PETER (V.O.)
Well I didn’t think I would need it now!
ISABLLA mumbles and the camera is momentarily turned to her as the group stops moving.
PETER (V.O.)
Isabella are you okay?
ISABELLA
(WEAKLY)
Oh I don’t know, my back is fucking killing me because something attacked me and we are still not out of these god dam woods. So please ask me again if I’m okay.
RYAN
What do you mean something attacked you. We were all there when it happened an there was nothing there to grab you.
ISABELLA
I don’t know but right before I got I fell swear to god that I felt something grab me and yank me back.
PETER (V.O)
Well we are hopefully almost to the car and then we won’t have to worry about it.
Camera moves around ISABELLA and RYAN.
RYAN
(WORRIED)
Yeah, but if something attacked her then what if it’s still back at the camp?
PETER (V.O)
Look there was nothing that attacked Izzy. It was just a freak accident.
Wind slightly picks up and there is a very high pitched scream in the air. RYAN and ISABELLA look around with terrified looks on their faces.
ISABELLA
(SCARED)
What the hell was that!
PETER (V.O.)
Maybe it was an animal.
RYAN
Yeah maybe. Come on lets get to the car. The sooner we can get Izzy to the hospital the sooner we can get back here and maybe get everybody to leave.
ISABELLA
Yeah I don’t think we should have left Ashley there.
PETER (V.O.)
Why she can take care of herself.
ISABELLA
I know that but we left her there with Riley. I just don’t trust that guy when he’s around her. He’s always staring at her creepily.

PETER (V.O.)
You don’t think he would do something to hurt her
ISABELLA
I have got no idea.
PETER (V.O.)
Well come on lets go.
The group starts to walk again. A loud crack can be heard off screen. ISABELA screams and RYAN and PETER jump. RYAN hands ISABELLA fully over to PETER. PETER’s camera moves to show RYAN walking around carefully, shouting.
RYAN
(SHOUTING)
Alright mother fucker! Whose ever doing this it’s not funny. Come out right now.
Everything gets really quiet then there is a moment of stillness.
ISABELLA
Maybe it was nothing
PETER (V.O.)
Yeah come on we have to get to the car.
RYAN
Yeah maybe it was an animal. It’s just this is all starting to get to my head.
RYAN starts to walk over. RYAN then gets jerked by his jacket, he stops and looks scared. Hear same crack but closer. RYAN turns to look at noise. Look of shock on face.

No what if you end up like him. We have to go. Please let’s just go.
PETER
We can’t just leave him……………Ryan!!! Ryan where are you.
Camera tracks his movement as PETER walks slowly. Comes to an abrupt stop. Looks at something in the woods. Eyes get wider.
