A screenplay about a girl who is pshycic
INT. SIMPSON JALOPY - DAY
We are in a car. Old Jalopy. 10 to 15 years old, easily. A
blizzard screams outside of the car.In the car we have a
middle aged man and a middle aged woman in the two front
seats. JUDY sits in the passenger seat with her husband JACK
behind the wheel. Behind them in the back seat is their
daughter ERICA and her best friend LISA. We can hear the
engine on the verge of exploding.
This is crap...
We exchange shots to a shot of Judy.
Whats that honey?
We now have a shot from outside of the car locked to the
back window of the car. It's fogged, but we can barely see
Lisa and Erica, but they're visible
My sweet sixteen and I'm in a
It's not that bad...
The car continues to drive through the blizzard. Out side
the wind makes a noise. It sounds like it says the word
"die", but it's to faint to be for sure. This catches
Erica's attention, and she looks out her window, her eyes
playing ping pong.
What are you looking at, man?
We are now back in the car, and we are looking into Erica's
palm at her cell phone. She is typing something in a text
message. It reads:
Ths is crap. my sweet16 and im in a car wif my parents.
She shows it to Lisa
it's not that bad...
Erica gives Lisa a nasty look.
okay, maybe it is.
"Die." The wind whispers it again. It's louder that before.
Loud enough to hear through the screaming blizzard outside.
did you hear that?
She knows her daughter is not enjoying this. It's obvious.
What do you want to do when we get
to San-Antonio, Erica-Pie?
Erica's mother judy sighs. We can tell by the look on her
face she thinks she's failed as a mother.
"DIE." Louder this time. No longer a whisper but a growl.
Lisa, tell me you heard that.
Hear what? What the hell are you
talking about Erica?
We have a shot looking out the back right window. Slowly the
car rolls past a sign sitting crookedly in the ground,
roofed with snow reading "Dead end." We quickly cut closer
to the sign, having only the "DEAD" in the frame.
She blinks a couple of times and rapidly shakes her head. We
can hear the crack in her spine.
That sounded gross.
We can hear Lisa countinuing talking, but the noise is soon
buired by HIGH PITCHED MUSIC AS WE SLOWLY ZOOM IN ON ERICA'S
FACE. Her face seems frozen like the river to side of the
street. Her eyes are grey when they used to be blue. Her
face has turned as white as the snow wedged inbetween the
street and the sidewalk.
QUICK CUT TO:
We are now at the back wheel of the Jalopy. Everything is
going in slow motion. We hear the scream of brakes being
slammed, and the screetch of burning rubber. We hear people
screaming. We are now back in the car, still in slow motion,
screaming continuing. We see that the winshield is severly
damaged, slowly we see the siloette of a person roll over
the top of the car, and a spatter blood goes on the
QUICK CUT TO:
We are back in the Jalopy again. Everyone is calm. The car
is fine and undamaged. Erica's facade remains in a frozen
state of shock. Lisa snaps her fingers in front of Erica's
Hello? Earth to Erica?
Erica's face and eyes go back to their normal colors, but
she starts screaming like she's gone mad! Her eyes start to
leak tears. Erica's father Jack takes his eyes off the road
to see what's wrong with his daughter.
Jack, watch the road!
We hear the scream of brakes being slammed, and the screetch
of burning rubber....
Everything flashes white.
We now have a birds eye view on the car. The car is on the road, flipped over on it's side. We see on the side of the car is a trail of blood.
FADE TO BLACK.
