               Devon Turner, a former resident of Crystal Lake, is in her
               vehicle driving down the road with coffee in hand as her 11
               year old son, Billy, plays with his video game in the front
               seat beside her.

               As she continues driving down the road, she passes a sign
               that says Welcome to Crystal Lake Community.

               She appears to be in observation of her surroundings as if
               it has been a long time since she was last there. As she
               makes a left-hand turn, she immediately takes notice to an
               old abandoned house sitting on the corner of the street down
               on the right.

               As she pulls the car to a stop right in front of the house,
               she pauses for a moment as she takes in the view and then
               turns the car off.

                               (taking notice to
                               the house)
                         Wow, Mom.  So, that's where you
                         grew up?

                               (looking at Billy)
                         Yeah, it sure is.  Looks a little
                         run down, huh?

                               (still looking at
                         Yeah.  It looks a little scary
                         too.  Not to mention that it is
                         that close to a cemetary.

               Devon looks around Billy as she glances out towards the

                         Oh, you don't have to worry about
                         anything with that.  Those people
                         have been dead for years.

                         Yeah, right, Mom.

                               (nudging Billy as
                               she giggles)
                         Come on.  Let's go check it out.

               Devon and Billy both get out of the car with Devon never
               taking her eyes off of the house.  As she closes her car
               door and starts walking towards the front door of the house
               with Billy not far behind her, she notices some movement at
               the front door as if it is slowly opening.

               As she gets halfway to the door, it slowly opens further as
               a slim woman steps out to greet her.

                               (extending her
                         Hello.  I am so glad you could
                         make it.  My name is Robin.

               Devon grabs her hand and shakes it.

                         Yes, thank you.  This is my son,

                               (looking at Billy)
                         Well, hi, Billy.  It's nice to
                         meet you.

                         Thanks, you too.

                               (giggling as she
                               puts her hands
                         Well, welcome back to the old
                         Turner house.  Shall we take a
                         look inside?

               Robin steps to the side to allow Devon and Billy entrance
               into the house.


               As Devon slowly walks in, she takes careful notice to
               everything around her.

                         Ms. Nichols, I just want to offer
                         my condolences.  I know you and
                         your family have gone through a
                         lot within the past few years.

                               (looking at Robin)
                         Oh, thank you.  That really means
                         a lot.  And please, call me Devon.


               Billy stands still as he observes the view above him with
               his mouth wide open.  Devon takes the liberty to glance into
               the great room where old furniture remains, into the study
               and then upstairs.

                         Well, why don't you two go take a
                         look around.  You should be quite
                         familiar with it.

               Devon slowly begins to walk upstairs as Billy closely

                         Why is there still stuff in the

                               (still walking up
                               the stairs)
                         Well, after your grandfather
                         passed away, I guess it was
                         decided that all of the stuff left
                         behind remained with the house.

                         Oh.  Creepy.

                         Creepy or not, this is your new

               Robin stands still as she watches both Devin and Billy
               ascend up the stairs.

                         Is there anything else I can do
                         for you before I leave?

                               (looking over the
                         No, thank you.  You've been great.
                          I've got your number should I
                         need you.

                         Wonderful.  I'll just leave you
                         two to it.

               Robin's smile quickly turns to a frown as she turns her back
               and heads towards the front door to leave.  As she reaches
               the door, she lets out a sigh as she looks back towards the
               staircase with a look of distress and then again turns to

               Once upstairs, Devon slowly makes her way (with Billy in
               tow) down the hall.  She takes notice to a picture hanging
               on the wall of an intelligent looking teenage boy.  She
               immediately stops and stares at the picture.

                               (noticing Devon's

               Devon immediately breaks her stare.

                               (looking at Billy)
                         Yes, Honey?

                         Who is that?  Is that him?

                               (looking back at
                         Yes, Billy, that is your uncle.

               Billy slowly walks over to the picture to take a closer
               look.  As he approaches the picture, he takes notice to his
               uncle's eyes.  Within one quick glance, it looks as if the
               eyes of his uncle look straight at him as he quickly jumps

                         Billy?  Are you okay?

                               (rubbing his eyes)
                         Yeah, I'm fine.  I guess I'm just
                         seeing things, that's all.

               Devon continues walking down the hall, with Billy right
               beside her, as she immediately takes notice to a bedroom
               that has been pad-locked shut.

                               (approaching the
                         How weird.  Why would somebody do

                         I don't know.  That was actually
                         your uncle's old room.  We'll just
                         have to check it out later.

               Billy flips the lock up as he and Devon remain standing in
               front of the door.  A loud knocking at the front door causes
               both Devon and Billy to jump.

                         Come on, let's head downstairs.
                         That's probably the movers.  We
                         have a lot of work to do.

               Devon places her arm around Billy as they smile and head
               towards the stairs.

               As Billy is seen jumping down the stairs, as to jump over
               every other step with Devon right behind him, he finally
               reaches the floor and runs to open the door.

               As he opens the door, he takes notice to a very attractive
               and nicely dressed blonde lady standing before him.

                               (looking at lady)
                         Uh, Mom, I don't think this lady
                         is a mover.

               Devon walks up behind Billy, continuously looking at the
               woman is if in awe.  Billy looks up at Devon as she stands
               behind him and then excuses himself outside past the lady.

                         Oh, my gosh.  Lisa?

               The lady smiles and nods her head.

                         Yes, Devon, it's me.

               Both Devon and Lisa embrace.

                               (pulling away with
                               her hands on
                               Devon's shoulders)
                         When did you get back into town?

                         Just today.

                         Wow, I must say that word travels
                         quick, especially in this little

                         Yeah, no doubt.  Would you like to
                         come in?  I have to say it's not
                         very presentable but you're more
                         than welcome, if you like.


               Devon steps aside and allows Lisa to slowly enter the house.
                As she walks in, she immediately observes her surroundings.

                         Wow, this brings back memories.

                               (again taking in
                               her surroundings)
                         Yes, it does.

               A loud banging noise is heard coming from outside as both
               Lisa and Devon look out the door.

                                     BILLY (O.S.)
                         Mom, the movers are here.

                         Well, I know what you'll be busy
                         doing tonight.

               Devon and Lisa look at each other as Devon responds with a
               nudge and a smile.

               INT. TURNER HOUSE - NIGHT

               Loud laughter is heard as the view of the camera slowly goes
               from the foyer of the house into the great room where Devon
               and Lisa are sitting on the floor, surrounded by boxes, and
               drinking a glass of wine.

                         I know, but can you imagine the
                         look on his face when he was
                         finally caught?

                         Yes, remember I was there so I did
                         see the look on his face when he
                         was caught.

               Devon and Lisa laugh simultaneously for a brief moment.  An
               immediate hush comes over them as Lisa begins to talk.

                         Devon, I am so sorry for
                         everything you've had to endure
                         within the past couple of years. I
                         really wish I could have been
                         there more for you.

                         You've done enough.  Really, it's
                         okay.  I think, for me, it was
                         just a matter of getting away for

                         Yeah, I can imagine.  From your
                         brother mysteriously disappearing,
                         your mom and dad both dying from a
                         heart attack in the same fashion
                         within a few months apart to your
                         divorce, I just don't know how you
                         manage.  I know you have a lot of
                         guts in even considering moving
                         back home, a little on, doing it.

               Devon looks down as if to pause in grief.

                         However, you have been given a
                         chance to start fresh and create a
                         new beginning for yourself.

                               (looking back up)
                         Yeah, I know.  If only I can do

                         You can.  There's a lot of people
                         in this town that support you,
                         including me.  You know that if
                         you ever need anything, you can
                         call me at anytime, right?

                         Yeah, I know.  I appreciate it.

                         Well, the reminiscing has really
                         been nice, for the time being, but
                         I know you would probably like to
                         catch some sleep before the
                         morning so I guess I better be

               Lisa places her glass on the table behind her and stands up.

                               (walking towards
                               the door)
                         I'll give you a call sometime
                         tomorrow and maybe we can tackle
                         some of these boxes.

                         Yeah, that would be great.

               A loud thump is heard upstairs as both women look up towards
               the ceiling and then back at each other.

                               (shaking her head)
                         That kid.  He would stay up at all
                         hours of the night if I would let

               Lisa laughs and turns to head towards the door.  As she
               reaches the door, she turns and gives Devon a hug.

                         I'll see you tomorrow, alright?
                         Get you some sleep.

               Lisa smiles as she turns to leave.  Devon stands at the door
               and watches her as she gets in her car.  Devon then slowly
               closes the door and turns to go upstairs.


               Devon lies motionless in her bed.  As she sleeps, a loud
               knocking noise comes from just outside her door in the dark.
                As she remains still, a shadowy figure slowly begins to
               enter the room.

               A scaly, red-colored like figure in the form of a man, with
               only torso viewable on screen, slowly makes its way through
               the door. As it moves to the foot of the bed, while
               continuously making a groaning noise, it stops and stands
               still.  With backside of torso only viewable on screen, it
               stands still for just a few seconds as Devon sleeps.

               The figure again slowly begins to move to the side of the
               bed.  As it stands there groaning, it extends its hand
               (sporting long, skinny fingers and nails resembling claws)
               and gently touches Devon on her forehead.  As she starts to
               slowly move, the figure quickly begins to fade into mid-air.

               Devon slowly begins to come to.  She abruptly leans up in
               the bed as she frantically begins to breathe heavily, while
               placing her hand on her chest.  She reaches over to turn on
               her lamp and immediately looks around her room.  She then
               falls back into the headboard, heavily padded by pillows, as
               she grabs the remote from her nightstand and turns on the

                               (shaking her head
                               as she looks
                         Well, this is the life.


               Devon is walking towards the front door, preparing to leave.

               TITLE OVER:  ONE WEEK LATER

               As she opens the door and pauses to look in her purse for
               her keys, she quickly glances up and beholds a man standing
               right in front of her. She immediately jumps back and drops
               her keys on the floor.

                               (bending down to
                               pick up her keys)
                         I am so sorry to startle you.  Are
                         you okay?

                               (taking keys from
                         No, it's fine.  Do I know you?

                         Yes, Devon.  It's Ronnie. Remember
                         me?  I was a childhood friend of
                         your brother's.


                               (extending his
                         Yes, how are you?  I really wanted
                         to come by, offer my condolences
                         and welcome you back home.

                               (shaking Ronnie's
                         I haven't seen you in quite some
                         time.  Of course, I've been gone
                         for about five years.  Do you
                         still live here?

                         Yeah, I kind of made my self
                         scarce for various reasons.  I did
                         always have a crush on you though.

                         Oh, really?  How did you know who
                         I was?

                         Oh, sorry.  I saw it on your key

                               (looking at her
                               key chain)

                         And not to mention the fact that
                         you haven't changed a bit.

                         Yeah, right.

                         Yeah, your brother and I really
                         started getting close after you
                         left.  We became almost like
                         brothers.  I'm just heart broken
                         over what has happened.

                               (bowing her head
                               as she sighs)
                         Yeah, we all are.

                         Look, I'm sorry I didn't mean any
                         harm.  I can see that you're in a
                         hurry so I'll let you go.  Maybe
                         we can meet back up at a later
                         time and catch up on some old

                         Yeah, I would like that.

               Devon just stares at Ronnie as Billy comes running down the
               stairs behind her.  He runs up behind Devon, looks up at
               Ronnie in question and then runs past him out the door.

                         How about I give you call within
                         the next couple of days or so and
                         maybe we can get together then?

                         Yeah, I would really like that.
                         Oh, here's my number.

               Ronnie digs in his pocket for a business card and hands it
               to Devon.

                               (looking at the
                         So, you own your own clothing

                         Yeah, the business has actually
                         been in my family for years. Maybe
                         you can come by and check it out
                         sometimes?  We're located on the
                         corner of Crestview and Main.

                         Yeah, maybe I'll do that sometime.

                         Great.  We'll I guess I'll talk to
                         you soon.  Bye.

               Ronnie nods his head in respect as he turns to leave.  After
               a brief pause, Devon shakes her head as she smiles and takes
               her keys to lock the door behind her.


               Devon walks into an office, papers in hand, and is
               immediately confronted.

                         Oh, my gosh.  There she is.

               Megan approaches Devon and gives her a hug as Devon
               reciprocates with the one hand she has available.

                         How have you been?

                               (nodding her head)
                         I think I'll make it.  How about

                         Oh, girl, you know me.  I take it
                         one day at a time.  Today, I think
                         I'll make it.

               Devon begins to laugh as she approaches a desk, sporting a
               name tag with her name on it, and lays her papers down as
               Megan walks up behind her.

                         So, am I going to need to show you
                         the ropes again?

                         No, I think I'll be alright.

               Devon sits down in her chair and lets out a huge sigh.

                         Are you sure you're going to be
                         okay?  You look like you didn't
                         sleep a wink last night.

                         I don't know.  I just had a
                         strange dream last night.  I'm
                         telling you, it was the weirdest
                         thing.  It was almost as if I
                         could feel a presence in my room,
                         even while I was asleep. When I
                         woke up, though, there was
                         absolutely nobody there.

                         Wow.  What did you do?  Did you
                         just go back to sleep?

                         Well, yeah, I mean I watched T.V.
                         for a short while after that but
                         then I practically had to force
                         myself to get some sleep.  And
                         then, to top that off, Ronnie
                         Bishop shows up at my house this
                         morning acting very strangely.

                         The Ronnie Bishop from years ago?

                         Yes.  He told me that he had some
                         new information about my brother
                         that he felt inclined to discuss
                         with me prior to going to the

                         Really?  You need to get out of
                         that old house.  That's just too
                         creepy.  You may end up being
                         targeted by God only knows who.  I
                         thought the city was going to have
                         that house condemned anyway.

                         Yeah, but I had to salvage it.
                         It's my home.  That house is the
                         only remaining connection I have
                         to my family.

                         I understand that, but the
                         memories it contains are only
                         heart-wrenching.  Don't you think
                         that to rid yourself of such
                         atrocities and only hold dear in
                         your heart the good memories would
                         better the situation?

                         And that would be accomplished

                               (sighing as she
                               shrugs her
                         Time, I guess.  No one can truly
                         empathise with you.  You do have a
                         very unique situation on your
                         hands.  I just wish I could do
                         more for you.

                         Yeah.  I appreciate everybody's
                         concern but I think this is
                         something I am just going to have
                         to work through on my own.

                         Yeah, you're probably right.
                         However, on a lighter note, when
                         are we going to go out?

                         I'll keep you informed.  Let me
                         get settled back in first.

                         Sure.  Anyway, let me know if you
                         have any questions and I'll leave
                         you to it.

                         Yeah, thanks.  I appreciate it.

               Megan smiles as she turns to leave.  Devon looks down at her
               desk, with papers already piled up, and shakes her head as
               she starts going through the stack.


               Billy is walking down the sidewalk, along with a friend,
               heading home after school.

                                     MICKEY (FRIEND)
                         Are you serious?  That's just

                         Yeah, I know, tell me about it.
                         And I have to live there.

                         Is your mom keeping all of the
                         stuff that was left in the house?

                         I don't know.  I hope not.  My
                         uncle's old room is even locked
                         shut.  We can't even get in it.

                         Really?  How weird.  What do you
                         think is in there?

                         I don't know, but I'm kind of
                         scared to find out.

                         Didn't your uncle disappear?

                         Yeah, about a year ago.

                         And nobody has heard anything
                         since then?


               Billy cuts Mickey off as he heads towards the house.

                               (standing still)
                         Where are you going?


               As Billy walks up to the front door, Mickey just stands in
               awe while looking at the house.

                               (turning around to
                               address Mickey)
                         Well, aren't you coming?

                         This is your house?  That close to
                         that creepy cemetery?

                         Yes.  What were you expecting
                         after what I've told you?  It's
                         not going to be the Holiday Inn.

                         Yeah, but geez.

               Mickey cautiously walks up to the house as Billy unlocks the
               door and enters.  Mickey walks up to the door, turns to look
               around the neighborhood and then slowly enters.


               Devon is sitting at her desk.  She looks at her watch and
               lets out a long sigh.  Megan is seen walking up.

                         Well, how did it go?

                         Well, besides the fact that on my
                         first day I was handed a
                         bottomless pit of paperwork, fine
                         I guess.

                         It'll be okay.  You were given the
                         worse end of the deal.  All the
                         better to break you in, I guess.
                         We'll reconvene tomorrow.  Why
                         don't you go home and get you some

                         Yeah, sounds like a plan.

               Devon starts gathering up her paperwork, preparing to go

               INT. TURNER HOUSE - SAME - DAY

               Mickey is standing in the foyer, taking his surroundings all
               in as Billy walks up to him from the living area.

                         Here's you some water.  Do you
                         want to go up to my room?

                               (looking up the
                         Your room is up there?

                         Yeah.  Stop being such a baby.
                         Come on.

               Mickey follows closely behind Billy as they walk up the

                         And how long have you been here?

                         About a week.  That's why we still
                         have a lot of things in boxes.


               Both Billy and Mickey pass the padlocked room on their way
               to Billy's room.  Mickey immediately stops and takes notice
               to the lock.  As he observes the lock, he notices that it
               has been unlocked.

                         I thought you said that you hadn't
                         been able to get this door

                               (turning to look
                               at Mickey)
                         We haven't.  Why?

               Mickey moves the lock to show that it was unlocked.

                         Oh, my gosh.

               Billy walks up to the door and stares straight at Mickey.

                         Well, what do you think?  Are you
                         willing to go in?

                         After you.

               Billy pulls out the padlock and opens the latch.  He then
               slowly pushes the door open. As the door slowly swings open,
               he peers inside the room.

               The view of the room portrays two mattresses sitting on bed
               rails, one boarded up window and three boxes sitting in
               front of a desk.

                               (looking at the
                         Is that a blood stain?

                               (also looking at
                         No, surely not.  I'm sure someone
                         just spilled some red kool-aid or
                         something.  No big deal.


                               (looking around)
                         Well, this isn't so bad.

                         Yeah, not quite what I expected to

               The boys slowly walk in.  Mickey walks over to the boxes to
               take a look as Billy, after laying the padlock on the bed,
               stands and watches.  As Mickey flips up the top of the box,
               he looks in and pulls out a Ouija board tucked away in its

                         Oh, Man, I've heard about those
                         things.  Maybe we should just
                         leave and lock the room back up.

                         Oh, now whose being scared?

                         I'm not scared, just being
                         cautious.  Don't those things call
                         out the devil or something?

                         Oh, come on, it's just a game.  Do
                         you want to try it?

                         Yeah, sure, why not.

               Mickey takes the box containing the Ouija board and sits it
               on the ground.  Billy sits down on the opposite side as they
               pull out the pieces.

                               (holding the
                               marker up)
                         So, what do you think this is for?

                         I think you're supposed to sit it
                         on the board and spell out things
                         with it.

               Mickey places the marker on the board.  The boys sit
               Indian-style opposite each other as they sit and wait.

                         Well, what are we supposed to be

                         I don't know.  Look in the box and
                         see if there's any instructions.

               Mickey turns and grabs the box as the marker immediately
               flies under the bed.

                         Oh, my gosh.  Why don't you watch
                         what you're doing?

                         What are you talking about?  I
                         didn't hit anything.

                         Yes, you did.  You kicked the game
                         piece under the bed.

                         Well then, why don't I just get

               Mickey bends down beside the bed and starts to reach under
               it when a loud noise comes from the front door downstairs.
               Both boys jump as Mickey hits his head on the railing.  They
               both immediately stand to their feet, with Mickey rubbing
               his head, and dart out of the bedroom door.


               Both boys are running down the stairs.

                         Mom, we have to show you

                         Hey, Honey.  Whose your friend?

                         Oh, sorry.  This is Mickey.  He
                         walked home with me.  I hope
                         that's okay.

                         Yeah, certainly.  I'm glad to see
                         you're making friends.  What do
                         you have to show me?

                         Come on.  You have to follow us

               Billy and Mickey quickly head back upstairs with Devon not
               far behind them.

               As they approach the hallway, they head directly to the
               room.  Billy approaches the door and tries to open it.
               Unable to do so, he looks closer at the latch and notices
               that it has been locked.

                         Uh, Mickey.  Why did you lock it

                         I didn't lock it back.  You're the
                         one that had the lock.

                         Yeah, but I set it on the bed. You
                         didn't pick it back up?


                         What's going on here, boys?

                         Nothing.  When we got home from
                         school, we were heading to my
                         bedroom when we noticed that the
                         door had been unlocked.  We went
                         inside to look around and found
                         some weird stuff in a box.  I had
                         the lock in my hand and set it on
                         the bed.  We just can't figure out
                         who locked it back after we left
                         and came downstairs to meet you.

                         That's funny, guys.  Come on.
                         Let's go downstairs.  We'll get
                         something to eat.

                         Mom, we're being serious.

                         It's okay.  Let's go.

               Billy sighs as he heads back downstairs followed by Mickey
               and Devon.  As the boys head down in front of her, Devon
               stops and turns to catch a glimpse at the door in question
               and then turns to head down the stairs.

               INT. TURNER HOUSE - LATER - NIGHT

               Devon is sleeping soundly in her bed.  A thump is heard as a
               torso of a zombie-like man (only part of the figure viewable
               on screen) slowly enters the room.

               It stops right beside the bed and just stands there with the
               torso part still only being viewable on screen.

               After a couple of seconds, the zombie-like figure reaches
               down and grabs the blanket.  The figure gently pulls the
               blanket up to cover Devon as if to comfort her and then
               turns to leave.

               Billy then comes on screen as he lies sleeping in his bed.
               The shot of the bedroom door and Billy in his bed are all
               viewable on screen as a shadowy figure walks up to the door.
                The doorknob turns as the door slowly opens up.  The same
               figure stands there for a few seconds (with still only
               having the torso viewable on screen) and then turns to

               Billy starts to get a little restless as he begins to move
               in his bed as if to find a more comfortable position.

               EXT. TURNER HOUSE - NEXT - DAY

               Devon scurries down the stairs while putting on her

                         Come on, Billy.  We're going to be

                                     BILLY (O.S.)
                         I'm coming.

               Devon walks up to the front door and opens it as she drops
               an earring and bends down to pick it up.  When she stands
               upright, she finds herself face to face with the local
               Catholic Priest.

                               (jumping back)
                         Father Bishop?

               The priest bows his head.

                                     FATHER BISHOP
                         Devon, I am so sorry to startle
                         you.  I just wanted to come by and
                         pay my respects.  I can't even
                         imagine the loss of losing both
                         parents within months of each
                         other in such an unprecedented

                         Thank you, Father.  I really
                         appreciate that.

                                     FATHER BISHOP
                         And the news about your brother.
                         Well, I just hope that the mystery
                         of his disappearance will soon be
                         revealed and put to rest for your
                         family's sake.

                         Thank you.  Me too.

               Billy runs down the stairs and up to Devon as he pauses to
               look at the priest.


                                     FATHER BISHOP
                         Hello.  You must be Billy.

               The Father extends his hand as Billy accepts with pleasure
               and shakes it.

                                     FATHER BISHOP
                         Well, I know that you both are
                         leaving so I won't take up too
                         much more of your time.

               The Father extends his hand to Devon to give her a business

                                     FATHER BISHOP
                         Should you ever need anyone to
                         talk to or just need someone to
                         pray with, please do not hesitate
                         to give me a call.  You are always
                         in my prayers and I think of you
                         and your family often.  I'm just a
                         phonecall away.

               Devon takes the business card as the Father bids his
               farewell and turns to leave.  Both Devon and Billy stand in
               the doorway and watch him as he leaves.

                               (looking at Devon)
                         How did he know my name?

                         I don't know.  He may have heard
                         of it from other people in the


                         Anyway, we need to get going.

               Billy takes off towards the car as Devon locks up behind her
               and turns to leave.


               Mickey is walking alongside Donna (a classmate) after

                         You have to see this ghost room.
                         It is so weird.


                         Yeah.  It will freak you out.

               Mickey and Donna approach the house and walk up to the door
               as Mickey rings the doorbell.

               After a couple of seconds with no answer, he rings the
               doorbell again.

                         Maybe no one's here.

                         Maybe not.  I thought I saw him
                         head out on his way home after
                         school but maybe he was picked up.

                         Hm.  Let's just go.  Maybe we can
                         come back later.

                         Okay.  Let's go.

               Mickey and Donna turn to leave as the door slowly opens.
               They both turn towards the door simultaneously and then look
               at each other in question.

                               (slowly walking
                               towards the door)
                         Hello?  Billy?

               Mickey turns and looks at Donna.

                         Well, are you coming?

                         Are you crazy?  It doesn't look
                         like anybody's at home.

                         It's okay.  We'll just quickly go
                         upstairs and look at the room and
                         then we'll leave.

                         Uh yeah, okay, I guess.  Are you
                         sure we won't get in trouble?

                         Not if we hurry.  Come on.

               Mickey and Donna both slowly enter the house.  As they walk
               in, Mickey quickly observes his surroundings.


                         Come on.  Stay close behind me.
                         We'll go upstairs so you can see
                         it and then we'll leave.


               Donna follows closely behind Mickey as they walk up the
               stairs.  As they make it to the hallway upstairs, they
               slowly walk down the hall.  As they approach the bedroom
               door, Mickey comes to a stop.

                               (pointing to the
                         This is it.

                         I thought you said it was locked

               Mickey looks at the lock and notices that, once again, it
               has been unlocked.

                         It was locked up.  Maybe Billy's
                         mom found the key.

                         Well, do you want to go in real

                         I don't know.  It was pretty

                         Oh, come on, Chicken.  You said we
                         wouldn't be here that long.

                         Yeah, but what if they get home
                         during the meantime.

                         Well, we'll just say that the door
                         was open and we thought Billy
                         might be upstairs.

                         Yeah, right.

               Mickey takes the lock off of the latch and slowly pushes
               open the door.

               He begins to walk in as Donna follows closely behind.

                               (looking around)
                         Wow, this place is creepy.  Is
                         that a blood stain on the bed?

                         No.  I think somebody accidentally
                         spilt some red juice or something.
                          Don't worry about it.

                         Oh, okay.

                         Here, let me show you this before
                         we leave.

               Mickey walks over to the box containing the Ouija board and
               pulls it out.

                         Check this out.

               He takes out the Ouija board and lays it on the floor.  He
               takes the marker and sits it down on top.

               Both Mickey and Donna patiently watch.

                         So, what's supposed to happen?

                         It moved all by itself before.
                         Billy swears up and down it was me
                         that moved it but it wasn't.  It
                         was something else.

               As Donna and Mickey stand by, waiting for something to
               happen, the marker slowly begins to maneuver itself.

                         See?  Did you see that?

                         Yeah, I think I did.

               The marker slowly begins to pick up pace as it maneuvers
               itself from one letter to the next.

               Mickey begins to leave the room as Donna reaches out to stop

                         Wait.  It's trying to tell us
                         something.  Let me get some paper.

               Donna sits her backpack on the bed as she reaches in to grab
               a piece of paper.  Meanwhile, the marker becomes consistent
               in rotation.  Mickey just stands by frozen from fear.

                               (placing the paper
                               on the floor)
                         What was the first letter it went
                         to?  Do you remember?

                         I don't know.  I think it may have
                         been a 'W' or something.

               Donna closely watches the marker as it again starts over
               with the 'W'.  As she goes to each letter, Donna quickly
               writes it down.

               Just as sudden as the marker begins, it quickly comes to a

               Donna stands up with the paper and slowly looks at Mickey.

                         Well, did it spell out something?

                         Yeah.  It asks where Billy is.

               Donna shows Mickey the hyphenated code, also visible for a
               brief second to the viewers, as he immediately jumps back.

                               (grabbing Donna's
                         Come on.  We have to get out of

               Mickey and Donna quickly head out of the room, leaving the
               door wide open behind them.


               View of just inside the front door (inside of house) is

                                     BILLY (O.S.)
                         I told you I wouldn't get in
                         trouble.  I had absolutely no

                                     DEVON (O.S.)
                         Yeah, you just got lucky.

               The sound of keys jiggling are heard as the front door
               slowly begins to creak open.

               Devon pokes her head through the crack to take a look inside
               the house.


               She slowly pushes the door open and walks in, followed by

                               (turning to Billy)
                         Did you forget to lock the door
                         this morning?

                         No, it wasn't me.  You were the
                         last one to walk out and I saw you
                         lock it.

                         Yeah, I thought I did but maybe I
                         didn't.  You can't ever tell about
                         these old locks.

               Devon pushes the door to as Billy makes his way up the
               stairs.  He reaches the hallway and walks on down to his
               room.  As he passes his uncle's old room, he takes notice to
               the secure lock on the latch.

                         Mom, when are you going to start
                         cleaning out Uncle's old room?

                                     DEVON (O.S.)
                         I'm working my way to it, Billy.
                         It's just taking time to get

                               (looking at the
                         Hm.  Okay.

               He continues down to his room as he takes off his backpack
               and tosses it in his room.

               Back downstairs, Devon is interrupted by a knock on the
               door.  She approaches the door and slowly opens it as she
               peers outside.

                                     LIEUTENANT COX
                               (holding up his
                         Ma'am, my name is Lieutenant
                         Richard Cox and I was just
                         canvassing the area.  Is
                         everything okay?

               Devon opens the door.  As the police officer beholds Devon,
               he immediately removes his hat and places it over his chest.

                         Yes, everything is fine.  Is
                         something wrong or is there a
                         reason to be concerned?

                                     LIEUTENANT COX
                         No, not at the moment.  However,
                         you for one should know that
                         anything can quickly take a turn
                         for the worse.

               Devon just stands there with a questionable look on her

                                     LIEUTENANT COX
                         Ms. Turner, I am sincerely sorry
                         about what you have been dealing
                         with.  I can only imagine how
                         difficult this trying time must be
                         for you and your family.  I just
                         wanted you to know that the police
                         force, including myself, is trying
                         our best to get this thing solved.

                         Well, what exactly do you know?
                         Have there been any new
                         developments?  I know my brother
                         is still alive out there
                         somewhere.  He has to be.

                                     LIEUTENANT COX
                         Well, I'm not really at liberty to
                         discuss certain issues regarding
                         the case but let me just say that
                         we have had our run of suspects,
                         some that haven't quite yet panned
                         out,  so just watch yourself and
                         be careful. These days, it's hard
                         to trust anybody.  There were
                         three individuals that disappeared
                         that night, one of which was your
                         brother, and we have our
                         suspicions as to who may be
                         involved.  There just hasn't been
                         any witnesses come forward yet.
                         However, we're staying on top of
                         new developments and following
                         every lead.

                         Thank you.  I appreciate the

                                     LIEUTENANT COX
                               (placing his hat
                               back on his head)
                         Anyway, just remember to trust
                         your instinct and steer clear of
                         anyone you may be suspicious of.
                         Also let us know if you hear of

                         Yes, Sir.  I sure will.

                                     LIEUTENANT COX
                               (nodding his head)
                         Good day.

               Devon watches the police officer as he heads towards his
               vehicle and gets in.  As he starts the car, he waves one
               last time to Devon before backing out of the driveway.  She
               returns the wave and watches him as he leaves.

               As he pulls out, he passes Ronnie on the road who in turn
               puts off an evil stare.  Lieutenant Cox returns the favor as
               Devon observes the whole thing.  As Ronnie passes the house,
               his devilish look turns to a smile as he casually waves at
               Devon and slowly drives on by.

                         Hm.  What was that all about?

               Devon shakes her head and quickly closes the door to lock up
               for the night.


               Billy is asleep in his bed.  The view of him lying in his
               bed and his bedroom door, currently cracked open, are in
               view.  The door slowly begins to open wider as it makes a
               soft creaking noise.  As it opens a little wider, a key is
               tossed into the room and lands on the floor.

               Billy begins to slowly wake from his sleep.  As he wakes up,
               he glances towards the door and starts screaming.


               As Devon immediately comes on screen, showing to be sleeping
               soundly in her bed, she immediately sits up as Billy screams

                                     BILLY (O.S.)
                         Mom!  Mom!

               She immediately jumps out of her bed and runs down the hall
               towards Billy's room.  As she enters the room, she finds
               Billy holding the covers up to his chin with his back
               completely against the headboard as a look of fear
               completely covers his face.

                         Billy, what is the matter?  Are
                         you okay?

                         I saw something, Mom.  Somebody
                         was in my room.

               Devon walks over to Billy as she sits on the side of his bed
               and tries to console him.

                         What do you mean somebody was in
                         your room?

                         It was dark, but I saw a man that
                         looked like a ghost or something.

                         Billy, it's okay.  You were just
                         having a bad dream.  There is
                         nobody in here with us.  Okay?

                         But it seemed so real.

                         I'm sure it did, but it's all over
                         now.  You were just having a

                         Yeah, okay.  I guess I was just
                         imagining things.

                         Great.  Now why don't you try to
                         get some sleep.

               Devon stands to leave.  As she begins walking towards the
               door, she steps on something.

                               (bending down to
                               pick up the
                         What is this?

               As she looks at the object, she notices that it is a key.

                         Billy, this is how stuff gets
                         lost.  You need to keep up with
                         your things a little better. Here,
                         put this up.

               Devon hands Billy the key as he looks at it in question.


               Devon turns to Billy to find a very disgruntled look on his
               face as she lets out a long sigh.

                         Okay, fine, but just for tonight
                         and I mean it.

               Billy places the key in the drawer of his nightstand and
               gets up to follow Devon to her bed in her room.

               INT. TURNER HOUSE - NEXT - DAY

               Devon and Billy are both asleep in her bed.  The alarm
               sounds as Devon jumps and quickly turns to shut it off.

                               (lying back down)
                         Billy?  It's time to get up.

               Billy starts to move from the position of laying on his
               stomach to turning to his right side.

                               (rubbing his eyes)
                         What time is it?

                         It's 6:30.

               Devon sits back up and starts nudging Billy.

                         Come on.  We don't want to be

                         Okay, Mom.  Geez, I'm getting up.

               Billy slowly begins to climb his way out of bed and make his
               way to the bathroom.  Devon begins to stretch, while still
               sitting on the side of the bed, as her attention is directed
               towards a picture of her brother (originally hanging on the
               wall) sitting on her dresser upside down.

                               (slowly bringing
                               her arms down is
                               in awe)
                         Billy?  Did you bring your uncle's
                         picture in here and put it on my

                                     BILLY (O.S.)
                         No, why?

                         Uh, no reason.  Just get dressed.

               Devon stands up and approaches the dresser.  She takes the
               picture and exits her room.


                         I'm telling you, that is exactly
                         what it did.

                         Oh, whatever.  You need to quit
                         with the jokes, okay?

                               (stopping to take
                               Billy's arm)
                         I'm not joking with you.  The
                         thing spelled out your name as if
                         to ask a question.  It was wanting
                         to know where you were.  Ask
                         Donna, she'll tell you.

                               (throwing up his
                         So, let me get this straight.  You
                         literally break into my house,
                         force your way into my uncle's old
                         bedroom and then pretend that a
                         board game was speaking to you by
                         spelling out words that asked
                         where I was, by itself?

                         Yes, exactly and we didn't break
                         or force ourselves into your
                         house.  Both of the doors were

                               (starting to walk)
                         That room is padlocked and you
                         know it.

                         Not at that time it wasn't.
                         Someone had unlocked it as if to
                         invite us in.

                         Yeah, right.

                         Something is up, Man, I'm telling
                         you.  Maybe your house is haunted.

                         Yeah and do you really believe in
                         that stuff?

                         Nothing has ever happened to
                         convince me otherwise.

                         Yeah, I know what you mean.

               The two boys approach the outside of Billy's house.

                         Well, take it easy.  I guess I'll
                         see you tomorrow.

                         Yeah, see ya tomorrow.  Bye.

               As Billy stands and watches Mickey leave, he lets out a sigh
               and then turns towards his house to go home.


               As Billy lies asleep in his bed, he is awakened by a noise
               that sounds like a huge chain being pulled across the floor.
                He immediately sits up and looks out of his door as he
               pulls the covers up to his chin.

               He sees a shadow of a man walking towards his bedroom.  He
               immediately jumps out of bed and runs to his closet where he
               quietly, yet quickly, climbs up to his top shelf and
               discretely positions himself into a fetal position.

               The sound of the figure gets louder as he hears it enter his
               bedroom.  The noise immediately stops as if to pause for a
               brief second and then makes its way to the closet.

               Billy is quietly sobbing with his hand over his mouth as the
               noise begins to sound again.  The shadow slowly makes its
               way towards the closet as the zombie-looking figure comes
               into view.

               Billy immediately gasps as he looks at the creature and sees
               the resemblance between it and his uncle.

               The creature slowly walks into the closet, shuffles the
               clothes around, stands there briefly and then turns to

               Billy throws his head back as in an effort to quietly let
               out a contained sob.  He then remains still, as if to give
               the creature time to leave, and slowly yet fearfully drifts
               off to sleep.

               INT. TURNER HOUSE - NEXT - DAY

               Devon is sitting on the side of her bed rotating her head in
               a circular motion, with her hand on the back of her neck, as
               to release some pressure from a restless sleep.

                         Oh, what a night.

               She stands up and walks towards the bathroom.

                         Billy?  It's time to get up.  I
                         want to hear some movement.

               She walks into the bathroom where you can hear some rustling
               off-screen and then the flushing of the toilet.  A few
               seconds later, she walks out of the bathroom and towards the

                         Billy?  Don't make me come in

               Billy comes on screen as he remains asleep in his closet.

                                     DEVON (O.S.)

               Billy jumps as he immediately comes to and looks around as
               if to make sure the coast is clear.


               Devon immediately runs into his bedroom.

                                     DEVON (O.S.)
                         Billy?  Where are you?

                         I'm in here.

               Devon approaches the closet and looks in.


                         Up here.

                               (looking up)
                         What are you doing?

               Devon assists Billy as he climbs down from the top shelf and
               helps him to his bed.

                         What is going on with you?

                               (breathing heavily)
                         He's dead, Mom.


                         Your brother, my uncle, he's dead.

                         What are you talking about?

                         He was here last night in my room.
                          He looked like he had been dead
                         for years, walking around like a
                         zombie on a rampage.  It was him,
                         I know it was.  It was almost as
                         if he was trying to find something
                         or get a message to me but I
                         avoided him.  I had never been so
                         scared in my entire life.

                         Billy, this joking has got to
                         stop.  This is absolutely nothing
                         to kid about and I'm tired of
                         hearing all the foolishness.

                         But, Mom, you have to believe me.
                         I wish I was joking but I'm not.

               Billy gets up and walks over to his desk and takes hold of
               his web cam.

                         Look, I'll prove it to you.  If he
                         ever comes back, I'll be ready.
                         Maybe I can catch whatever it is
                         on video and then you'll believe

                         Alright, fine.  If you think
                         that's what needs to be done.
                         Anyway, we've got to get dressed.
                         Just let it go for now, okay?

                               (bowing his head)
                         Yes, Ma'am.

               Devon sighs as she shakes her head and leaves the room.

                               (talking to
                         I know I'm not crazy and I'll
                         prove it.

               Billy approaches his computer desk and turns on the
               computer.  As the video image of his bedroom pops up on the
               computer monitor via his web-cam, he slowly maneuvers the
               camera to angle it just right.

                         There.  How about I just leave it
                         running.  Maybe then I could
                         really catch something.

               INT. LOCAL PAWN (GUN) SHOP - SAME - DAY

               Devon is entering a pawn shop.  Upon entering, she slowly
               takes notice to the displays around her.  A clerk takes
               notice and walks over to her.

                                     GUN SHOP CLERK
                               (approaching Devon)
                         Can I help you Ma'am?

                               (looking up)
                         Yes Sir, I am in the market to buy
                         a gun.

                                     GUN SHOP CLERK
                               (leaning against
                               the display case
                               with arms crossed)
                         Tell me, what does a little
                         darling like you need a gun for?

                         You wouldn't believe me if I told

                                     GUN SHOP CLERK
                         Why don't you try me.  Trust me,
                         Lady, I have heard some wild
                         stories in my lifetime.

                         Something is terrorizing my house
                         and I need some form of protection
                         from it.

                                     GUN SHOP CLERK

                         Yes, something.  I haven't
                         actually seen what it is but I
                         have definitely felt the effects
                         of it.

                                     GUN SHOP CLERK
                         You're talking like you're not
                         sure what type of being this is.

                         Exactly.  I think my house may be

                                     GUN SHOP CLERK
                         Do what?  You think your house is
                         haunted and your looking for a gun
                         for protection?  Wait, if you hang
                         on a second I might have some
                         silver bullets in the back.

               The clerk as well as the other men standing around continue

                                     GUN SHOP CLERK
                               (holding his hands
                         Look, Ma'am, I'm not trying to
                         make light of the situation but
                         your not making any sense here.
                         You have to fight fire with proper
                         fire.  Catch my drift?

                         Yeah, thanks.  Haven't you ever
                         heard that if you really didn't
                         want to know the answer, don't
                         ask?  It is basically just to
                         pacify my son who thinks he is
                         seeing someone come into his
                         bedroom in the middle of the night
                         for a brief moment and then
                         leaving again.  I haven't found
                         any signs of someone breaking in
                         so I have no idea what to make of

                                     GUN SHOP CLERK
                         Look, I think what you probably
                         need is just a piece of mind. Take
                         this weapon for instance.

               The clerk walks over to a gun case.

                                     GUN SHOP CLERK
                               (taking out the
                         Here.  Why not try this Winchester
                         Model 12 Pump gun?

                         A pump gun?

                                     GUN SHOP CLERK
                         Well, yes, this gun is referred to
                         as the perfect repeater.  It fires
                         each time the trigger is depressed
                         and its 6-shot capacity makes it
                         effective for any close range
                         combat. As fast as one can pump
                         the action, another shot is fired.
                          It also, as you can see,  offers
                         you that much needed piece of

                         Um, well, I was kind of aiming
                         towards something more along the
                         lines of that.

               Devon points to a 9mm/38 Caliber hand gun (immediately shown
               on screen) in another display case.  The clerk turns in that
               direction and then back at Devon.

               The clerk is shown handing Devon a bag.

                                     GUN SHOP CLERK
                         Alright, if you have any trouble
                         or need to ask any questions,
                         please do not hesitate to call me,

                         Yeah, I appreciate it.

               Devon turns to walk towards the door and pushes it open as
               she leaves.

                                     GUN SHOP CLERK
                               (looking back at
                               men in shop)
                         Do any of you know her?

                                     MAN 1
                         Yeah, that's the Devon Turner.
                         She's come home and moved back
                         into the Old Turner Home out on
                         Crystal Lake where her missing
                         brother last lived.

                                     GUN SHOP CLERK

               The clerk looks back in her direction.

                                     GUN SHOP CLERK
                         Well, yeah, then she probably does
                         need some protection from only God
                         knows what.  God be with you.


               Billy enters the front door.

                         Hey, Mom, I'm home.

               As he takes off his backpack to place it by the front door,
               he hears laughter coming from the kitchen.


                                     DEVON (O.S.)
                         In here, Honey.

               Billy enters the kitchen as he notices Ronnie sitting at the

                               (talking to Devon)
                         Yeah, the whole thing is kind of
                         funny.  We've been giving each
                         other a hard time since

                         What's going on?

                         Well, we've got company tonight.
                         Say hello to Ronnie.

                         Hey, Billy.  I don't think we've
                         been formally introduced yet.  My
                         name is Ronnie.

               Ronnie extends his hand to Billy.

                               (taking Ronnie's

                         Well, Billy, it's nice to meet

                         Yeah, you too.

                         I understand you like to play
                         ball.  Maybe we can go play

                         Yeah, sure.

                         Billy, are you okay?

                         Yeah, I've just had a bad day.  I
                         think I'll just go up to my room.

                         Well, Honey, are you not going to

                         No, I'm not hungry right now.
                         Maybe later.

               Billy turns to leave as both Devon and Ronnie watch him walk

                               (looking at Devon)
                         Is he okay?

                         Yeah, he's fine.  We've just had a
                         rough start here, that's all.
                         Things will get better though, I

                               (looking back
                               towards direction
                               of Billy)
                         Oh, sure they will.  He's a cute
                         kid.  I hope maybe we can become
                         close friends.

                         Yeah, I'm sure he would like that.

                               (looking back
                               towards Devon)
                         Great.  That would make two of us.

               Ronnie and Devon both engage in laughter.

               Billy is seen walking up the stairs.  He reaches the hallway
               and heads to his room.  Upon entering his room, he crashes
               down upon his bed.

                               (sighing as he
                               looks up at the
                         Wow, I hope that's not Mom's new
                         boyfriend.  What a skeez-bucket.

               He starts laughing to himself as he rolls off the bed and
               heads to his computer desk.  He pulls the chair back and
               sits down as he starts going through papers lying on the

               After a short while of scuffling through papers, he hits a
               key on the keyboard of the computer as the monitor comes to
               life.  It reflects the image of his room, the angle
               reflected by the position of the web-cam.

                         Aw, yes, I forgot about letting
                         this play all day.  Let's see if
                         we caught anything.

               As Billy starts searching for a file on his computer, Devon
               walks into his room.

                               (poking her head
                               around the door)

                               (quickly turning
                         Geez, why don't you give somebody
                         a heart attack.  Don't you know
                         how to knock?

                         I'm sorry.  I just wanted to check
                         with you and make sure you were
                         alright.  You seem to be acting a
                         little strange.  Did anything
                         happen at school today?

                         No, Mom, I'm okay.  I'll come down
                         later and eat.  I just have a lot
                         of homework, that's all.

                         Okay, then, I'll leave you to it.

               Devon turns to leave as she quickly leans back in.

                         I love you.

                               (with back turned)
                         I love you too, Mom.

               Devon leaves to head back down stairs as Billy smiles and
               shakes his head.  As he quickly turns back around towards
               his bedroom door to make sure the coast is clear, he again
               pulls up a file on his computer and starts to play it.

                               (watching the
                         Hm.  Nothing for now but I'll just
                         keep it rolling.  Maybe something
                         will show up.

               Billy grabs a pencil, opens the textbook lying on his desk
               and presumes to work.  After a brief moment, the picture
               dissolves into the same scene.


               Billy is now asleep with his head resting on the desk.  The
               monitor comes to life as Ronnie is seen walking past the
               bedroom door (not in real time-just on monitor) and stops to
               take a look in the bedroom. He walks over to Billy's closet
               and opens the door, looks around inside and then swiftly
               closes the door, making a loud sound on the monitor that
               wakes Billy up.

               As Billy is awakened, he raises his head and takes notice to
               the monitor.  He quickly turns around to find Ronnie as he
               realizes that the video is not in real time.  He then pays
               closer attention to the monitor as he sees Ronnie walk over
               to his computer desk at which he currently sits and opens
               the drawer.

                               (looking at
                         What is he doing?

               As Billy continues watching the monitor, he observes Ronnie
               frantically searching for something as he goes from the
               computer desk to Billy's bed, all the while mumbling
               something to himself.

               Devon is then heard via the audio of the monitor addressing
               Ronnie from downstairs.

                                     DEVON (O.S.)
                         Ronnie, are you okay up there?

               Ronnie responds to Devon.

                         Yes, I'm sorry.  I'll be right

               Ronnie throws his hands up and sighs.

                               (to himself)
                         Where the hell is that damn key?

               He then turns and exits the room.  Billy sits back in his
               chair with a disgruntled look on his face.

                         Key?  What key is he looking for
                         and why would it be in my room?

               Billy turns around to visually scan his room.  As he slowly
               glances behind him, he does a double take towards his

                         Wait a minute.

               He immediately stands up and walks over to the nightstand.
               He opens the drawer, reaches in and pulls out the key that
               Devon had just recently found on his floor.

                               (looking at the
                         Is this what he's looking for?

               Devon peeks in the room.

                         Hey, I thought you were working on
                         homework.  What are you doing?

                         Oh, sorry.  I drifted off to
                         sleep.  Where's your friend?

                         He just went home.  Why?

               Devon walks over and sits on the side of Billy's bed as he
               stands in front of her.

                         Mom, I think we have to talk.

                         What do you mean?  What's going

               Billy holds up the key to show it to Devon.

                         It's a key.  What does that have
                         to do with anything?

                         Remember I told you that I was
                         going to leave my web-cam on
                         record in hopes of catching


                         Well, watch this.

               Billy heads back to his computer desk and replays the scene
               for Devon, as she remains seated on his bed, of Ronnie
               searching in his room and then mumbling the question of
               where the key is just prior to leaving.

                               (looking at Billy
                               in question)
                         So, what business would he have
                         with a key that would be in your

                         I don't know, but you found this
                         key on my floor, remember?  I
                         don't know what it's to.  You
                         think this might be what he's
                         looking for?

                               (taking the key
                               from Billy)
                         I don't know.  What could it
                         possibly go to?  It looks like a
                         padlock key.

               At that moment, Billy and Devon both look at each other as
               if to say they had just mentally figured it out and turn to
               leave the room with Billy leading the way as Devon follows
               closely behind him.

               They exit the room as Billy heads down the hall towards his
               uncle's old room.  Devon stands still in the hallway right
               outside of Billy's bedroom door.

                         What are you doing?

                         Just watch.

               Billy walks up to the locked door, inserts the key into the
               padlock and turns the key as it unlocks the door.  He then
               immediately turns to look at Devon.

                         What is going on here?

                         I don't know but there is
                         obviously something he wants out
                         of this room.

               Devon walks up to the door as she pulls the lock from the
               latch and pushes the door open.  As the door slowly creaks
               open, Devon reaches in and turns on the light as both she
               and Billy just stand in the doorway.

                               (looking inside
                               the room)
                         Oh, my gosh.

                         Mom, something terrible happened
                         in here.  Can't you feel it?

               Devon slowly walks in, places the lock on the table just
               inside the bedroom door and approaches the boxes.  She opens
               the lid of the box and reaches in to pull out the Ouija
               board.  After observing the box containing the Ouija board,
               she tosses it on the bed and continues going through the
               rest of the stuff contained in that one box.

                         What is this?  This stuff doesn't
                         belong to my brother.

                               (looking around
                               the room)
                         Mom, I think we need to get out of

               A soft, yet very distinct, creaking sound of someone slowly
               walking up the stairs is heard.  Devon immediately stops and
               takes notice to the noise that appears to be getting louder
               right outside of the bedroom door.

               Billy immediately runs to Devon as he nervously stands
               beside her, never removing his eyes from the opened door.
               Devon takes a deep breath as the sound reaches its max.
               Ronnie then slowly steps in front of the doorway as Billy
               jumps about a foot back behind Devon.

                         Oh, there you are.  I tried
                         knocking but no one came to the

                         Ronnie, what are you still doing
                         here?  What makes you think you
                         can just walk right on in?

                         Oh, I'm sorry.  The door was
                         pushed open.  I just thought you
                         were right inside the door but
                         when I stepped in, I heard the two
                         of you talking so I let myself in.
                          I left my car key on your counter
                         so I came back in to grab it.
                         Can't go far without these guys.

               Ronnie waves his keys in the air as Devon looks at Billy in

                               (putting his hands
                         Look, I'm sorry I startled you.
                         I'll make sure to ring the
                         doorbell next time.

               Ronnie looks around the room.

                         Wow, it seems weird to be in your
                         brother's old room again without
                         him here.  What is that on the
                         wall over there?

               As Devon and Billy turn towards that direction, Ronnie steps
               in and discretely takes the padlock off of the table.

                         I don't know.  I'm not sure what
                         half of this stuff is.

               Ronnie walks over to the bed and picks up the Ouija board as
               he observes the box.

                               (shaking his head
                               with a smirk)
                         Wow, pretty outgoing guy.

                         This is not his stuff.  I have no
                         idea where it came from.

                         Don't fret, it's okay.  I'm sure
                         there's a lot of things you didn't
                         know about your brother.  Trust

               Ronnie puts off a devilish laugh.

                         Look, I'm sorry but I think you
                         need to leave.  We were just
                         heading to bed.

               Ronnie smiles sheepishly as he places the box back on the

                         Yeah, you're right.  It is a
                         little late.  Can I call you

                         Yeah, that's fine.

                         Great.  I guess I'll call you

               Ronnie starts to exit the room as he turns around to address
               Devon one last time.

                               (flashing a single
                         I'll just let myself out.  Thanks
                         again for dinner.

               Ronnie looks at Billy and gives off a devilish wink as he
               turns to leave.

                         What is up with that guy?

                               (looking at Billy)
                         Make sure to get all this stuff
                         put back up.  I'm going to see him
                         out and make sure everything gets
                         locked up.

                         Yes, Ma'am.

               Devon exits the room as Billy takes the Ouija board and
               places it back into the box.  He then walks over to the
               table to grab the lock and notices that it is not there.

                         What?  I know I saw that lock
                         sitting here.

               He looks under the table and on the floor.

                         Great.  I'll just fasten the
                         latch.  That lock is bound to turn
                         up some time.

               Billy stands up and walks out the door after turning off the
               light and shutting the door behind him.  As the inside view
               of the door is on screen, a noise of the door being latched
               from just outside is heard.

               The view of the camera slowly rotates towards the closet in
               the back of the room as it shows four skinny fingers (the
               same fingers as portrayed earlier in the script) reach
               around the wall from inside the closet.  A growling sound is
               then heard as the picture fades out.

               INT. TURNER HOUSE - NEXT - NIGHT

               Devon is walking around the house with a lighter, lighting
               candles in case of a power outage, as it storms outside.

               She is interrupted by a knock on the door and quickly
               approaches it.

                         Who is it?

                                     FATHER BISHOP (O.S.)
                         Devon, it's Father Bishop.

               Devon immediately opens the door.

                         Father, I'm so glad you're here.

               Father Bishop walks in, as the rain continues pouring
               outside, and Devon closes the door behind him.

                                     FATHER BISHOP
                         Yes, I was wondering how long it
                         was going to take before you
                         called me.  We have to talk.

               Devon assists Father Bishop in taking off his raincoat.

                               (hanging up his
                         Yes, I know.  I've got Billy
                         staying over at a friend's house
                         so he's not going to be here
                         tonight. When you have things
                         happening in your own home that
                         you can't logically explain, the
                         next thing to do would be to
                         contact someone who caters to a
                         higher power who might can find
                         some answers or at least make
                         whatever it is scaring us go away.

                                     FATHER BISHOP
                               (looking around)
                         Oh, yes, I do greatly feel its
                         presence and I can honestly tell
                         you that it does not want me here.

                         Well, what do you think we need to

                                     FATHER BISHOP
                         Devon, your brother's spirit is in
                         danger.  He is here and is calling
                         out for help.  He is also trying
                         to warn you and send you a


                                     FATHER BISHOP
                               (leading the way)
                         Come, let's sit down.

               Father Bishop and Devon make their way into the great room
               and take a seat on the couch.

                                     FATHER BISHOP
                               (looking at Devon)
                         Your brother came to me last night
                         in a vision.  You and Billy are in
                         grave danger and you have to get
                         out of this house immediately.


                                     FATHER BISHOP
                         Your brother has been murdered and
                         is now trying to avenge his own

                               (taken aback)
                         Father, I'm sorry but I don't

                                     FATHER BISHOP
                               (sighing as he
                               takes Devon's
                         In life, your brother had become
                         involved in some type of a satanic
                         cult. Right before his
                         disappearance, he contacted me to
                         discuss what he referred to as a
                         much needed deliverance on

                         What?  What are you talking about
                         and what exactly is a deliverance?

                                     FATHER BISHOP
                         The purpose of a deliverance is to
                         eject any and all demonic
                         possessions and rid yourself of
                         the evil that may encompass you.

                         So, what are you saying?  That my
                         brother was possessed?

                                     FATHER BISHOP
                               (looking at Devon)
                         Well, if he's contacting a priest
                         to inquire of such matters, either
                         the true possession is in place
                         and he is out to secretly mock the
                         church or he has delved into
                         something he knows no escape from.
                          Either way, I knew he needed
                         immediate help.

                         So you think that all of this had
                         something to do with his

                                     FATHER BISHOP
                               (shaking his head)
                         No, no, I don't think so.  I know
                         so.  I think he and his friends
                         opened up a door that had no
                         business being opened.

                         And what does that mean?

                                     FATHER BISHOP
                         The door to the other side.  Or,
                         in so many words, the portal of
                         literal hell.  It's the gateway to
                         the spirit world.  It's a place
                         that allows the other side access
                         to us in a much evil physical form
                         that tries to take hold of its
                         prey and recruit them, so to
                         speak.  It's obtained through
                         satanic rituals, sacrificial
                         procedures on animals and
                         sometimes even humans.  The
                         sacrifices are used as gifts to
                         these demonic entities.

                         So you believe that my brother
                         worshipped Satan?  You think that
                         is what brought all of this about?

                                     FATHER BISHOP
                         I believe that what happened was
                         that your brother was pulled into
                         a world that he knew nothing
                         about.  He thought these people
                         were his friends and they weren't.
                          They tried to teach him these
                         rituals and he began to refrain. I
                         also think that your parents were
                         haunted by the demons that may
                         have resulted in their deaths.

                               (beginning to
                               breathe heavily)
                         What?  So, what do you think
                         really happened the night my
                         brother disappeared?

                                     FATHER BISHOP
                         Things that no human should ever
                         have to witness in his lifetime.

               Father Bishop begins telling the story as the actions of
               what had happened begin to visually unfold on screen.

               Four boys, including Devon's brother and a younger looking
               Ronnie, are seen forcefully escorting a young girl up to the
               house in the pouring rain.

                                     FATHER BISHOP (V.O.)
                         They thought that this house would
                         be better because of its close
                         proximity to a cemetery.  Your
                         parents had left for the weekend,
                         so there was no better time than
                         then to perform the ritual.

               The boys engage in laughter as they push the front door open
               and push her into the house.  She falls on her back onto the

                                     DEVON'S BROTHER
                         Is all of this really necessary?

                                     BOY 1
                         Shut it, Turner, or you'll be

               Devon's brother peers down at the girl who is crying
               uncontrollably from fear and shuts the door behind him.

                                     DEVON'S BROTHER
                         How do you know that she's even a

                                     BOY 1
                         Look at her.  Would you have sex
                         with something that looked like

               The remaining boys shout out with laughter as they lift the
               girl to her feet and start carrying her upstairs.

                                     DEVON'S BROTHER
                         Look, there has to be another way
                         around this.

                                     BOY 1
                               (looking at
                               Devon's brother)
                         Are you coming or are you going to
                         bow out like a little chump?

               Devon's brother sighs and follows them up the stairs as the
               girl continues crying uncontrollably.

                                     FATHER BISHOP (V.O.)
                         Your brother truly wanted no part
                         of it, but at this point, he knew
                         he was in too deep to turn back.
                         He knew his own life was in danger
                         if he didn't follow suit.

               The boys get up the stairs and walk down the hall to Devon's
               brother's room.  They open the door and literally throw the
               crying girl into the room.

                                     BOY 1
                               (bending down to
                               confront the girl)
                         If you don't stop your hideous
                         sobbing, this is going to be
                         worse.  Do you understand me?

                                     YOUNG GIRL
                         Why?  Why are you doing this?

                                     BOY 1
                         Why?  Why are we doing this?

               The boy stands up and nudges Devon's brother.

                                     BOY 1
                         Go on, Turner, tell the girl why
                         we are doing this.  Maybe she at
                         least deserves that much.

               The other boys laugh as Devon's brother just stands there.

                                     BOY 1
                               (raising his voice)
                         Go on, Turner, tell her.

               He, again, just stands there with no ability to speak.

                                     BOY 1
                         Oh, I see, our friend is going to
                         play shy now.

               The boy reaches over and places his arm around Devon's
               brother's neck.

                                     BOY 1
                               (looking at girl)
                         What my friend is trying to say is
                         that we need your little virgin
                         body to offer as our sacrifice to
                         the gods.

               He then bends down beside the girl to address her one last

                                     BOY 1
                         Because if we don't, all that
                         we've done up to this point is in
                         vain.  We wouldn't want that,
                         would we?

               The boy stands back up as the girl continues crying

                                     BOY 1
                         Alright, boys, let's get this over
                         with.  This bitch is about to give
                         me a headache.

               Two of the boys pick the girl up and place her on the bed.
               They then tie each arm to the headrest as the first boy
               walks over to hold her feet down.

                                     BOY 1
                         Alright, that's good.  Now each of
                         you get over here and hold her
                         legs down.

               Devon's brother is seen standing to the side as he literally
               watches in horror.

                                     BOY 1
                               (talking to
                               Devon's brother)
                         God, what is this?  I can't
                         believe you, Man.  What was that
                         about pleasing Satan and wanting
                         to do his will.  Think about all
                         of the freedoms you can obtain.
                         This means living your life
                         without any restraints and giving
                         yourself to any and all
                         temptations this world can offer.
                         Doesn't that sound better than
                         following ridiculous rules and
                         having to answer to a higher

                                     DEVON'S BROTHER
                               (looking straight
                               at the boy)
                         It doesn't matter what you do. You
                         will always have to answer to a
                         higher power, good or evil. Maybe
                         the rules exist to protect people.
                          Did you ever think of that?

                                     BOY 1
                         Look, I am not going to stand here
                         and debate this.  We have already
                         established the ground rules and
                         the basis for our lives.  We have
                         to have 100% dedication to make
                         this work.  Now, are you in or are
                         you out?

               The crying girl looks up at Devon's brother with a
               tremendous look of fear.

                                     YOUNG GIRL
                               (through tears)
                         Please, help me.

                                     DEVON'S BROTHER
                               (looking away as
                               he gulps)
                         Yeah, fine.  Just remember that
                         this wasn't my idea.

                                     BOY 1
                               (nodding his head)
                         Alright, now that's what I'm
                         talking about.  Don't worry.  Your
                         mommy, daddy and big sissy would
                         all be so proud.

               The boy pulls a knife from his coat as the girl screams

                                     BOY 1
                         Is everyone in place?

               All the boys gather around the bed with two standing at the
               end of the bed (including Devon's brother alongside Ronnie)
               and the other boy standing opposite of the first boy with
               the knife.

               The boy with the knife takes out a small pamphlet from his
               back pocket and lays it on the bed.  The girl consistently
               sobs as she steadily screams out in fear.

                                     BOY 1
                         Will somebody please go find some
                         duct tape?

               The boys all turn to Devon's brother.

                                     BOY 1
                               (shrugging his
                         Turner, that would be your call.
                         You're the only one who knows
                         where stuff is around here.

                                     DEVON'S BROTHER
                         Yeah, right.

               He turns and exits the room.

                                     BOY 2
                         Are you sure this is going to

                                     BOY 1
                         Yeah, Dude, we have Satan backing
                         us up.  It will work.

               The boy looks down at the girl as her screams seem to be
               getting louder.

                                     BOY 1
                         Speed it up, Turner!

               Devon's brother is heard running back up the stairs as he
               then re-enters the room.

                                     DEVON'S BROTHER
                               (approaching the
                         Here.  Just for you.

               He shoves the boy's chest, tape in hand, as the boy abruptly
               takes it from him.

                                     BOY 1
                         Yeah, I appreciate your

               Devon's brother cautiously returns to his original spot as
               he quickly glances back down at the girl.  The boy starts
               peeling the tape away.

                                     FATHER BISHOP (V.O.)
                         Your brother knows that there is
                         nothing remotely okay about this,
                         no matter what kind of worship he
                         has already offered to the dark
                         side.  Before, it was only him and
                         the confusion of his beliefs but
                         now, he has become responsible for
                         a living human being.  This only
                         goes to show that he had not fully
                         committed himself to what his
                         friends have involved him in or
                         what was about to take place.

               The boy tears a piece of tape off and quickly places it over
               the girl's mouth.  He then tosses the roll onto the floor.

                                     BOY 1
                         Finally, peace and quite.  Now,
                         let's get this party started.

               The boy positions the pamphlet on the corner of the bed
               where he can read it during the ritual.

                                     BOY 1
                               (looking up as he
                               raises the knife
                               above the girl)
                         Satan, we come to you with an
                         offering of pureness that we will
                         slay in your name only!

               Devon's brother is beginning to shake as he quickly becomes
               very restless and immediately takes flight.  He screams in
               rage as he jumps across the corner of the bed, knocking the
               pamphlet off the bed and into the closet under a pile of
               clothes, and tackles the boy with the knife to the ground.

                                     FATHER BISHOP (V.O.)
                         Your brother immediately disturbs
                         the ritual as he tackles the boy
                         to the ground.

               A ringing of thunder, as lightning flashes outside the
               window, is heard throughout the house as the lights
               immediately go out.

               Devon and Father Bishop immediately come back on screen.  A
               loud sound of thunder rings throughout the house as the
               lights begin to flicker and then completely go out.  Father
               Bishop immediately stands to his feet.

                               (sitting Father
                               Bishop back down)
                         It's okay.  I've got candles lit.
                         You have to finish telling me what
                         happens to my brother.

               Father Bishop sighs as he continues.

                                     FATHER BISHOP (V.O.)
                         The lights had went out and the
                         only thing you could hear was the
                         rustling of boys in conflict.

               The lights then come back on as Devon's brother is seen
               holding the boy with the knife against the wall as the other
               boys stand around.

                                     DEVON'S BROTHER
                         I can not allow this.  You've gone
                         far enough.

                                     BOY 1
                         Oh, really?  I think you're
                         forgetting who has the weapon.

                                     FATHER BISHOP (V.O.)
                         Your brother is immediately
                         stabbed in his side as he falls to
                         the ground in agony.

               The boy stands to his feet and looks at the girl, whose eyes
               have almost swollen shut from crying, and raises the
               blood-stricken knife in the air.

                                     BOY 1
                               (in a deep,
                               possessed voice
                               with eyes of red)
                         Now, let's finish this!

                                     FATHER BISHOP (V.O.)
                         While in pain, your brother jumps
                         up behind the boy and grabs both
                         of his arms from behind.  In a
                         swift motion, he forcefully brings
                         the knife down towards the boy's
                         chest as it pierces his heart. The
                         boy then immediately falls to the

                                     BOY 1
                               (rolling from side
                               to side in pain)
                         Veritas diaboli manet in aeternum!

                                     FATHER BISHOP (V.O.)
                         Devil's truth remain eternally, he
                         shouts in a demonic voice.

                               (looking at
                               Devon's brother)
                         What have you done?

                                     FATHER BISHOP (V.O.)
                         Your brother falls to his knees
                         from the wound in his side and
                         slowly drifts off to sleep, never
                         to awaken again.  His spirit just
                         seems to be caught somewhere
                         between here and there for he has
                         great need to complete one more

               The 2nd boy yells at Ronnie.

                                     BOY 2
                         What are we going to do?

                               (looking at the
                         We are going to complete the

               Devon and Father Bishop come back on screen as Devon bows
               her head with Father Bishop looking on in sorrow.

                         So they killed the little girl
                         anyway, in this house.

                                     FATHER BISHOP
                         Oh, yes.  You see, they had to
                         complete the ritualistic ceremony
                         at hand but it was tainted and not
                         carried out properly.  Once the
                         ritual is disturbed, it doesn't
                         fulfill its main purpose.  It
                         leaves too many loose ends that
                         must be tied up for Satan to fully
                         be satisfied with the gift he is
                         being offered.  So, although the
                         task was carried through, there
                         has to be proper and just
                         replacements made quickly to
                         complete the original circle.
                         However, in this case, only
                         certain individuals could
                         righfully complete it.

                               (looking up at
                               Father Bishop)

                                     FATHER BISHOP
                         Yes, your brother's blood kin. The
                         next best thing to his offspring
                         would be his nephew.  When he took
                         an oath to the dark side, it not
                         only affected him but his entire
                         family.  They thought that if they
                         could convert Billy's young mind
                         early, they could recruit him,
                         complete the circle and perform
                         another offering to alter the area
                         and maintain complete passage to
                         the dark side.

               Father Bishop continues with the story as Ronnie comes back
               on screen, standing in a dark, desolate and wet location.

                                     FATHER BISHOP (V.O.)
                         After Ronnie disposes of the
                         bodies, he walks out of the wooded
                         area but turns to claim his stake.

                         We will avenge your death.  The
                         circle will be completed and the
                         offering made to our god will be

                                     FATHER BISHOP (V.O.)
                         One of the first things he must do
                         now is find the script that was
                         misplaced among the scuffle.  Only
                         then can he complete the long
                         awaited offering to the evil
                         entity he refers to as God.

               Father Bishop and Devon come back on screen as the lights
               begin to flicker and then come back on.

                                     FATHER BISHOP
                         Stay away from Ronnie, Devon.  He
                         is only trying to deter you.  He
                         has to maintain access to this
                         house in order to carry out what
                         his brothers failed to properly
                         carry out before.

                         So, what are you saying?  That
                         this house has become their

                                     FATHER BISHOP
                         Yes, that's exactly right.  It's
                         like an omen, if you will, of
                         where their negative orb of energy
                         has created the archway to Satan.

                               (looking straight
                               at Father Bishop)
                         The portal of hell?

                                     FATHER BISHOP
                               nodding his head)
                         Yes.  It is the portal of hell.

               A loud banging on the front door is heard coming from the
               outside of the house as both Devon and Father Bishop jump
               and turn towards the door.

                                     RONNIE (O.S.)
                         I know you're in there!  Open this

                         Oh, my gosh.  What are we gong to

                                     FATHER BISHOP
                               (hollering towards
                               the door)
                         You are not welcome here.  You
                         must leave at once.

                                     RONNIE (O.S.)
                         Do you honestly think that is
                         going to deter me?

               The doorknob starts jiggling as Devon and Father Bishop look

                         What do you want from us?

                                     RONNIE (O.S.)
                         Oh, come on, Devon.  You can't
                         possibly tell me that you don't
                         know that by now.

                         You killed my brother you stupid
                         bastard.  Get out of here before I
                         call the cops.

                         Oh, really?  Open this door right

               The door begins shaking dramatically as Devon stands to her

                               (taking Father
                               Bishop by the
                         Come on, we have to get out of

               As Father Bishop stands to his feet, the door is forcefully
               kicked open as they both stand there and watch Ronnie slowly
               make his way into the house.  Father Bishop quickly stands
               in front of Devon.

                         Well, what do we have here? Taking
                         a stroll on the dark side, Father?
                          You'll learn it can be very
                         contagious and fulfilling, to say
                         the least.

                                     FATHER BISHOP
                         You need to leave here at once,

                         Oh, really?  And what are you
                         going to do about it if I don't?

               Ronnie slowly begins to walk towards them.

                                     FATHER BISHOP
                               (pointing towards
                         Do not come a step closer.

               Ronnie begins to chuckle and shake his head.

               Devon slowly reaches behind her and opens the drawer to the
               end table she happens to be standing in front of.

                         Father, do you honestly think that
                         after all the things I have seen
                         in my short life that you are
                         going to startle me?

               As she slowly reaches into the drawer, she moves her hand
               around as if to search for something.  After a couple of
               seconds, she finally grabs something and immediately
               withdraws her hand and displays a gun as she points it
               towards Ronnie.

                               (putting his hands
                         Well, would you look at this? What
                         are you going to do?  Shoot me?
                         You don't have the guts.

               Father Bishop quickly turns around and takes the gun from

                                     FATHER BISHOP
                               (pointing the gun
                               towards Ronnie)
                         No, but I do.

               Loud thunder rings throughout the house as the lights again
               flicker and then completely go off.  A scuffle is heard as
               Devon begins to scream.  A gunshot rings out as the lights
               immediately come back on.

               Father Bishop is lying flat on his back as Ronnie sits on
               top of him, holding him down by his chest.

               As Devon stands back in shock, Father Bishop notices that
               the gun has landed right above his head and he begins to
               reach for it.  Devon immediately comes to his aid as she
               grabs the gun and points it at Ronnie.

                         Get off of him now!

               Ronnie slowly raises his hands and begins to stand to his

                         Come on, Devon, give me the gun so
                         we can put an end to all of this.

                                     FATHER BISHOP
                               (standing up)
                         Give me the gun, Devon.

                         I would think twice before I did

                               (hesitating as she
                               looks at Ronnie)
                         What?  What are you talking about?

                         You just don't get it, do you?  If
                         Satan wanted to manipulate
                         somebody and get in his head, the
                         best way to do that would be to
                         disguise himself as a man of God.
                         If you were Satan, where would be
                         the best place for you to hide
                         that no one would ever suspect you
                         of being?

                         Excuse me?

                               (shrugging his
                         Every ring has its master.  Don't
                         you see? The whole thing is a
                         fabrication on the part of Father
                         Bishop himself. In order to
                         discourage you from seeking the
                         facts, he has befriended you and
                         led you astray as to the actual
                         truth of the matter.

                                     FATHER BISHOP
                         Don't listen to him.  He's only
                         trying to lead you astray.  There
                         should be no doubt with you as to
                         what my beliefs are.

                         Really?  Even Satan believes in
                         God and can quote you any
                         scripture in the Bible.

               Devon flashes a disgruntled look.

                         Stop it!  This is ludicrous.  Both
                         of you just remain still while I
                         call the police.

                         Yeah, you do that.  That's a great
                         idea.  Don't you think that if
                         they really cared they would have
                         solved the case by now or at least
                         tried a little harder to solve it?
                          Two young men and a female
                         disappeared over a year ago and
                         they are no further along then
                         they were when the case first

               Devon nervously, while still aiming the gun towards both
               men, picks up the phone.  She tries turning the phone on and
               puts it to her ear.

                         Oh, I can not believe this.  The
                         phones are down.

               She places the phone back down on the receiver.

                                     FATHER BISHOP
                               (reaching out to
                         Come on, let me make this a lot
                         easier for you.  Just please give
                         me the gun.

               As lightning strikes outside, a figure appears in the corner
               of the room that immediately attracts Ronnie's attention.
               The figure disappears just as quickly as it appears.  The
               figure is that of Devon's brother, the same figure that
               Billy had previously seen.

                               (mouth dropping)
                         What in the world is that?

               Devon and Father Bishop both direct their attention in the
               direction of Ronnie's stare as Devon immediately looks back
               towards the men with gun in hand.

                               (pointing in that
                         Who was that?  Did you not see

               Lightning strikes again as the figure presents itself and
               Ronnie immediately gasps.  Devon and Father Bishop simply
               look around in question.

                         No, it's not possible.  What is
                         this, a joke?

               Lightning strikes for a third time as the figure appears
               right beside Ronnie, looking straight at him.  He
               immediately swings for it as the figure again disappears.
               Devon looks on in question.

                               (looking around)
                         What are you?  You are dead!

                         What is going on here?

                                     FATHER BISHOP
                         He's having visions of his victim.
                          Your brother is here with us.

                               (eyes tearing up)
                         What?  He is here?

                                     FATHER BISHOP
                               (looking around)
                         Yes, he is.

                         No, he's not.  Your brother is
                         dead.  There is no way he is here.

                                     FATHER BISHOP
                         Yes, he is here, Ronnie, and he
                         has come back to avenge his death.

                               (looking at Father
                         What the hell are you talking
                         about?  I had nothing to do with
                         his death.

                                     FATHER BISHOP
                               (looking at Ronnie)
                         Oh, but you did have something to
                         do with his death and yet you
                         choose to allow such ungodly acts
                         to remain free of justice.

               For one last time, lightning strikes as a vision of Devon's
               brother is seen once more standing right in front of Devon
               as Ronnie snaps and jumps towards her in an attempt to
               tackle the ghost.

               As Ronnie leaps towards her, the ghost quickly dissipates
               and Devon fires a shot as Ronnie goes down to the ground.

               As he falls to the floor, he quickly grabs his left shoulder
               and screams in agony.  Devon looses control and quickly
               drops the gun as Father Bishop dives for it.

               As he obtains the gun, he quickly jumps on top of Ronnie and
               places the gun to his temple.

                                     FATHER BISHOP
                         Now, listen to me and listen to me
                         good.  I have permission from a
                         higher power to put a bullet in
                         your head if you do not tell us
                         where you placed those helpless

               Devon stands there in shock as she helplessly looks on and
               places her hand in front of her mouth.

                         Yeah, right.

               Father Bishop quickly turns around and shoots Ronnie in his
               right knee at close range as Ronnie screams out in agony and
               then resumes position.

                                     FATHER BISHOP
                         I am not in a position to play
                         games here and we haven't much
                         time.  Now, I'm only asking you
                         this one last time.  Where are
                         those helpless souls?

                         The old Woodland Park Road.  The
                         wooded area right behind the
                         Chancellor's house.  The graves
                         are marked with huge stones.  You
                         can't miss it.

               Father Bishop stands up and motions for Devon to follow.  He
               directs her out of the house as he stops behind her and
               turns to address Ronnie one last time who remains on the
               floor in agony.

                                     FATHER BISHOP
                         No, I am not perfect for none of
                         us are.  I did fail and told a
                         lie.  A higher power did not give
                         me permission to put a bullet in
                         your head.  He only gave me
                         permission to put it in your

               Father Bishop fires one last shot into Ronnie's left knee
               and turns to leave.

                         Please don't leave me!

               As Ronnie lies flat on his back, while rolling from side to
               side in horrific pain, he glances up through eyes of tears
               and beholds Devon's brother's ghost looking down on him.

                               (looking up while
                         It's not my fault that you're

                         The little girl?

                         We just put her out of her misery.

               The eerie-zombie looking ghost of Devon's brother
               immediately transforms into the demonic figure seen
               previously as it raises its head and lets out a huge growl.
               The figure quickly drops to the floor above Ronnie as he
               lets out an ear-piercing scream followed by sounds of glass
               breaking and a fire igniting.  The screen immediately goes


               Father Bishop is driving down the road in the pouring rain
               as Devon sits in shock.

                         What's going to happen to Ronnie?

                         Well, he'll be eternally placed
                         with the demons he summoned.  Once
                         Satan is through with him, he'll
                         be placed in the fiery pit where
                         he will remain forever more.
                         Satan's use for him would have
                         been completed.  He won him over.

                         And you honestly believe that?

                               (looking at Devon)
                         You better believe it.  Ronnie
                         will go where he rightfully
                         belongs before he's able to drag
                         anyone else down with him.

                               (sobbing softly)
                         I just can't believe that my
                         brother had to lose his life this
                         way.  Why couldn't I have been

                                     FATHER BISHOP
                         This is not your fault by no
                         means.  There's no way anyone
                         could have ever predicted this. We
                         are going to lay everything to
                         rest tonight.  You just have to
                         stay strong for me.  Okay?

               Father Bishop reaches over and clutches Devon's hand.

                               (looking at Father
                               Bishop through
                               eyes of tears)

               The truck is seen pulling to the side of the road.  Father
               Bishop quickly exits the vehicle in the rain and runs around
               the side to assist Devon out of the vehicle.

                                     FATHER BISHOP
                               (taking Devon's
                         Come on, we haven't much time.

               Devon exists as Father Bishop closes the door behind her. He
               quickly runs to the back of the truck and reaches in the bed
               to grab a shovel.  They both then take off walking towards
               the wooded area off the side of the road.

                         What are we looking for?

                                     FATHER BISHOP
                         I'm not sure but I'll know when I
                         find it.

               Devon continues following Father Bishop as they walk deeper
               into the woods.

               As Devon begins to show signs of slowing down, Father Bishop
               turns to address her.

                                     FATHER BISHOP
                         Devon, you mustn't give up.  We're
                         almost there.

               He takes Devon by the hand and assists her in walking
               through the woods.

                               (starting to cry)
                         I can't.  This is too much.

                                     FATHER BISHOP
                               (approaching Devon)
                         Devon, listen to me.  Your brother
                         needs us.  He is calling out to us
                         to finish this for him.  You have
                         to be strong.  Believe in
                         yourself.  I know you can do this.

               As Father Bishop glances off in the near distance, he
               immediately takes notice to two specific areas of freshly
               disturbed ground that appears to be raised.

                                     FATHER BISHOP
                               (taking a deep
                         Oh, Father above, be with us.

               Devon looks off in that direction to behold the same sight.

                         What is that?

                                     FATHER BISHOP
                               (leading Devon)
                         Come on.  We'll find out.

               Both Devon and Father Bishop approach the area.  As Devon
               stands above the proposed graves in the rain, she falls to
               her knees.

                               (sobbing as she
                               looks to the sky)

               Father Bishop approaches her as he places his hands on her

                                     FATHER BISHOP
                         Devon, this is not God's work.
                         This is the work of Satan and none
                         other.  However, we are here to
                         lay this whole thing to rest. What
                         I need you to do now is help me
                         out and move to the side.

               Devon stands to her feet and steps to the side as Father
               Bishop begins to dig up the soft area.

               As the rain continues to fall, Father Bishop continues
               digging with Devon standing to the side, looking on.  After
               a short while, he immediately stops as he places the shovel
               on the ground and begins digging with his hands.

               With his hands dug firmly in the dirt, Father Bishop slowly
               withdraws, holding what looks like a piece of human skull in
               his hand.

                                     FATHER BISHOP
                               (looking up at
                         We found it, Devon.  We've found
                         your brother.

               Devon again falls to her knees as she bows her head and

                                     FATHER BISHOP
                               (Placing his hand
                               on her back)
                         It's okay.  We can put him to rest

               As Devon raises her head to once again behold her brother's
               deathly grave, something catches her attention as she slowly
               stands to her feet.

               Father Bishop takes notice to Devon, looks in the direction
               that she is, and slowly stands to his feet.  The rain
               immediately comes to a stop.

               As soft background music begins to play, both Devon and
               Father Bishop behold an angelic figure, not like that of a
               previous demonic or zombie type entity, but that of a godly
               angel  that is slowly approaching them. As the spirit gets
               closer, it becomes clear that it is Devon's brother who has
               now become that of a saved soul and is no longer a demon
               bound for hell.


                               (as in a tunneled
                         Yes, Devon, it is me.

                               (softly crying)
                         I, I don't understand.

                         I know and I don't expect you to.
                         I just had to see you one last
                         time before I was able to move on.
                          There's something you must know.


                         I'm not what you may think I am
                         after all of this.

                               (shaking her head)
                         No, Donnie, I know you all to well
                         to believe such a thing.

                         I was wrong on several accounts
                         but that is something I must now
                         face.  I never meant for it to end
                         like this.  We are all lead astray
                         at one point in our lives but I
                         was able to come back from it. Not
                         physically, but most importantly,

                               (crying as she
                               nods her head)

                         I must go now.  Please, don't ever
                         lose faith.  You must be strong.

               Donnie extends his hand and softly caresses Devon's face as
               if to have a beam of light shine directly on you.  She
               closes her eyes and puts her hand to her cheek as the
               angelic figure immediately refrains.

                               (looking at Father
                         Thank you.

                                     FATHER BISHOP
                         Don't thank me.  Thank the one who
                         truly deserves it.

               Devon places her hand over her mouth as she notices Donnie
               beginning to step back.

                         I must go now, but I will always
                         be with you.

               Devon slowly waves goodbye as she tries her best to keep
               from breaking down.

               Donnie smiles and turns, as in a floating manner, to leave.
               As he begins to leave, the spirit of the murdered girl walks
               up from within the wooded area and takes his hand.  They
               both turn once more towards Devon and Father Bishop and

               As they again turn to leave, a beam of light immediately
               shines down from the heavens and draws them in as they
               disappear into thin air.

               As Devon and Father Bishop remain standing, while looking in
               that same direction, the night becomes completely still with
               not even a single movement in the woods.

               Father Bishop reaches out and grabs Devon's hand as she
               turns to him.

                         Thank you.

                                     FATHER BISHOP
                         No, thanks to us both.

               Father Bishop smiles as he breaks the silence.

                                     FATHER BISHOP
                         Come on, let's get you out of
                         those wet clothes.


               As they both begin to leave, Devon turns around once more as
               if to give off her final bow of respect to her brother.  Her
               eyes begin to fill up with tears as Father Bishop firmly
               takes her by the hand.

                                     FATHER BISHOP
                         Come on, Devon, we have to let him

               Devon walks alongside Father Bishop as they head out to

               The screen, as well as the background noise, completely
               fades as the screen becomes black.

                                     NARRATOR (V.O.)
                         The old Turner house burned
                         completely to the ground and was
                         never rebuilt.  The lot, to this
                         day, remains vacant and Ronnie's
                         whereabouts remain unknown. Many
                         sightings have been reported of
                         ghosts and entities pacing through
                         the cemetery as if to be searching
                         for something. Others believe that
                         it is the spirit of those who have
                         yet to be given permission to
                         cross over and may forever be
                         caught in purgatory or earthly
                         hell. Whatever the case, or
                         whatever you may choose to
                         believe, one thing is for sure. If
                         you invite the demons over for
                         dinner, they will claim their
                         stay, never leave and end up
                         having you for dinner.

               In the dead of night in the cemetery, a tall, red-colored
               like figure with scaly skin (as that of a reptile) in the
               form of a man (with horns on his head and large pointy ears)
               comes on screen standing at a distance. With its back turned
               to the audience, it begins slowly walking through the
               cemetery.  It appears to be the same figure whose torso was
               viewable throughout the movie.

               As the creature begins to slowly move, the focus of the
               camera swiftly creates a close-up of the creature as it
               immediately jumps around with arms spread out, as if to take
               flight, with bent knees and stares straight out into the
               audience.  It has a long defined chin with long sharp teeth
               and bright yellowish, scanty eyes.

               As it pauses for just a couple of seconds, it points
               straight out into the audience as if to single out a certain
               individual and then jumps towards the camera as the picture
               immediately fades to a black screen.

               TITLE OVER:  THE END (or is it really?)

                                                                  FADE OUT.
