                 BLOODY MURDER 2: CLOSING CAMP
                 a screenplay by John R. Stevenson

                 - - -

                 FADE IN:



                 EXT. WOODS - DAY

                 WE SEE a girl standing in about a foot of snow.  She
                 faces the woods.  Her face is in awe.  She pans the woods
                 up and down with her eyes.  She steadily starts walking
                 further and further...and starts gaining a faster pace as
                 the epic-ness begins.

                 Once she's in the woods, it grows very dark.  She looks
                 back for a moment...then back around to be struck in the
                 face by a bright light.  It fades and she can see a man
                 standing on a small hill.  She walks to him.

                                         TRACY
                           Jason?

                                         JASON
                           You shouldn't be here.

                                         TRACY
                           Mom and Dad want you to come home
                           now.

                                         JASON
                           I can't.

                                         TRACY
                           Why?

                                         JASON
                           He won't let me.

                 The boy starts to quiver.  Tracy grows scared.

                 Blood begins to run from his mouth.  

                                         TRACY
                           No...no...no...

                 A chain saw rips through Jason's chest.

                 Tracy screams!

                 WE PAN BACK to reveal a masked man standing behind him,
                 holding the machine.  
                                                                    2.


                 Tracy still screams as her brother is being ripped up.

                                                                  CUT TO:



                 INT. CABIN - DAY

                 WE SEE Tracy lying in bed...eyes wide open.  She's
                 breathing heavy.  She looks around, and then sits up.

                 She sees her roommate staring at her.

                                         SOPHIE
                           Bad dream?

                                         TRACY
                           Yeah.

                                         SOPHIE
                           Same one?

                                         TRACY
                           Yeah, Soph, same one.

                 Sophie drops her head...so does Tracy.

                                                                  CUT TO:



                 EXT. CAMP - CONTINUOUS

                 WEE SEE  sign that reads MAIN LODGE AND DINING.

                 Tracy and Sophie run past it in a hurry.

                                         SOPHIE (V.O.)
                           We are going to be so late.

                                         TRACY (V.O.)
                           I know.

                 Tracy gets up on the porch and gives her boyfriend, MIKE,
                 a hug.

                 The head counselor walks out, followed by another guy.

                                         RICK
                           Alright everybody!  Listen up.  We
                           got a lot of work ahead of us over
                           the next few days so lock this
                           place down for the winter.    

                 Two of the counselors hug each other.
                                                                    3.


                                         RICK (CONT'D)
                           As I was saying.  We got a lot of
                           work over the next few days so we
                           can lock this place down.  So I
                           arranged for an extra set of
                           hands.

                 He puts his hand on a guy's shoulder.

                                         RICK (CONT'D)
                           So I want to you meet James.  He's
                           an old family friend.

                                         JAMES
                           Hey everybody.

                                         ELVIS
                           What's up, man?

                 Everyone says hey.

                                         RICK
                           James is hitching his way to USC. 
                           He's a got full scholarship no
                           less. 

                 Everyone awes.

                                         RICK (CONT'D)
                           I roped him into sticking around
                           for a couple days, helping us. 
                           Let's get to it.  Any volunteers
                           who want to pair up with James for
                           the day?

                                         SOPHIE
                           Me.  I will.

                                         RICK
                           Okay.  Nice to see your
                           enthusiasm, Sophie.  Oh, one more
                           thing.  We got some weather coming
                           in so if you want to grab some
                           extra blankets from the shed
                           tonight, go ahead.

                                         RYAN
                           Who needs blankets?

                                         RICK
                           Alright.  Let's go everyone. 
                           Let's go.
                                                                    4.


                 Everyone walks away except Ryan and Angela...they're
                 kissing.

                                         RICK (CONT'D)
                           Ryan!  Can I see you for a moment? 
                           Did you put the wood chipper back
                           in the shed like I asked you to
                           last night? 

                                         RYAN
                           Shit.

                                         RICK
                           I knew it.

                                         RYAN
                           I'll take care of it right now.

                                         RICK
                           No, it's too late.  The rain last
                           night ruined the motor.

                                         RYAN
                           I'm sorry.  It won't happen again.

                                         RICK
                           It's just like the leaf blower.

                                         RYAN
                           The leaf blower wasn't my fault.

                                         RICK
                           And the canoe paddles?

                                         RYAN
                           Look!  Why are you always on my
                           ass?

                                         RICK
                           Because you're a screw-up.

                                         RYAN
                           What'd you say?

                                         RICK
                           You heard me.  Look, I'm not
                           impressed by your macho bull shit
                           like your little girlfriend.  I'm
                           going to say this one: your screw
                           ups are costing me a lot money and
                           I don't like it.
                                                                    5.


                                         RYAN
                           So what are you going to do, Rick? 
                           Are you going to fire me, with
                           only three days left?

                 Ryan walks away.

                                                                  CUT TO:



                 EXT. TRAIL - CONTINUOUS

                 We see Mike and Tracy walking to us.  Tracy is carrying
                 blankets.

                                         TRACY
                           Ah.  The trees are turning early
                           this year.

                                         MIKE
                           Yeah.  So much for our Indian
                           summer, huh?

                                         TRACY
                           Yeah.  It's kind of lonely here
                           without all of the kids.

                                         MIKE
                           Do not tell me you miss them.

                                         TRACY
                           It's sad.  The end of summer and
                           everything.

                 The two help each other spread the blanket over a close
                 line.

                                         TRACY (CONT'D)
                           Don't you miss them?

                                         MIKE
                           Now that you bring it up.
                                (pointing)
                           Nah.

                 They laugh.

                                         TRACY
                           Come on, mister tough guy.  Now
                           you can't fool me.  Inside you're
                           just a geat big softy.

                                         MIKE
                           Actually, you know that kid with
                           the lazy eye?  He kind of got to
                           me a little bit.

                                         TRACY
                                (laughing)
                           See.  I knew it.

                 They smile at each other.

                                                                  CUT TO:

                           I'd like to propose a toast.

                 They all come into frame.

                                         RYAN (CONT'D)
                           To the end of camp.

                 They all toast.

                           May we not have to clean up

                           And now that the little bastards
                           have gone home to their mommies
                           and daddies, we can turn our
                           thought to more adult pursuits.

                 Angela looks up at him.

                           So what's tonight's mischief?

                           I'm sorry, Tracy, that was--that
                           was insensitive of me.

                           I just wasn't really thinking.

                                         TRACY
                           It's okay.  I didn't even mean to
                           make a thing out of it.

                                         MIKE
                           Why don't you and I hang here
                           while the others run around the
                           woods like idiots?

                 They kiss.

                           Even if you cried.

                           I'm sensing you're trying to tell
                           me no.

                                         TRACY
                           Trust your senses.

                           I've tried really hard to get
                           close to you this summer.

                           I'm just saying I've tried so hard
                           to be sensitive to your family
                           situation.

                           My family situation?  Is that
                           really what you think of this?

                                         MIKE
                           I didn't mean it to sound like
                           that.

                                         TRACY
                           What did you mean?

                                         MIKE
                           I can't get close to you.  You put
                           up this front.  

                                         TRACY
                           I'm tired of being treated like
                           I've got six heads.  

                                         MIKE
                           Then you shouldn't have told us
                           about your brother.  

                                         TRACY
                           What are you saying?

                                         MIKE
                           I'm just saying it's a little
                           confusing.  You know, you either
                           want the attention or you don't.  

                                         TRACY
                           I don't think I want to talk about
                           this anymore.  

                 She leaves and walks inside the cabin.

                           Fine.

                           camp director that Placid Pines
                           has ever seen.  He had this habit
                           of ratting on the counselors to
                           his old man.  Well, one
                           year...several of the counselors
                           got this half-assed plan to get
                           back at them.  But things got out
                           of control, and before they knew
                           it, Trevor was at the bottom of a
                           ravine half dead with his face
                           eaten by hungry birds.

                           mental.  His face was so badly

                           or he broke out of the mental
                           hospital.  Then it's said that he
                           returned to Camp Placid Pines to
                           forever seek out his revenge on
                           the place and the people...that
                           did this to him.  How'd I do?

                           Smart ass.

                           Set up the new guy, huh?  Nice
                           try, boys.  Trevor Moorehouse is
                           just some fictitious local
                           psychopath to get campers into bed
                           at night.

                           Fictitious local psychopath?  

                                         JAMES
                           Did you really think I'd be stupid
                           enough to fall for that?  

                                         RYAN
                           You think I'm making it up?

                                         JAMES
                           I hope not.  I would think you'd
                           be able to come up with something
                           a little better than the old
                           "psychopath in the woods" story.  

                                         RYAN
                           Well then, tough guy.  Since
                           you've got nothing to fear you
                           won't mind being "It."  

                 They all laugh.

                 Angela jumps up to Ryan, hugging.

                 He hands her a blindfold.

                           Of course.

                 She walks over to James with it.

                                         JAMES
                           Wait a minute.  I didn't say
                           anything --

                           What's the matter, Jimbo?  Huh? 
                           You having a little change of

                           blindfold you.  Remember...there's
                           nothing to fear.

                           But fear itself.

                           Let the games begin.

                 EXT. WOODS - CONTINUOUS

                 The group walks to a big tree in the middle of the woods. 
                 James is blindfolded.

                                         RYAN
                           You've got to count to 20 before
                           you can remove the blindfold.

                                         JAMES
                           Okay.

                                         RYAN
                           Everybody ready?

                                         ANGELA
                           Yeah!

                                         RYAN
                           Go!

                 The group runs off to hide.

                                         JAMES
                           One-one thousand.  Two-one
                           thousand.  Three-one thousand. 
                           Four-one thousand.  Five-one
                           thousand...eighteen-one thousand. 
                           Nineteen-one thousand.  Twenty-one
                           thousand.

                 He turns around and removes the blindfold.  He looks
                 around.  Nothing.

                                         JAMES (CONT'D)
                           Oh, man.  Me and my big mouth.

                 James walks off to search for the rest of the group.

                 Each of the people are hiding in a different location.

                 James backs up into a tree and gasps.

                                         ELVIS
                                (peeking through
                                 trees)
                           You're not in Compton anymore.

                 James sees Mike gagging by a tree, back to him.

                 Mike turns around.  His neck is bloody as he holds it. 
                 He spits up blood.  James begins to back up.
                                                                   15.


                                         MIKE
                           Oh-oh-oh!

                 James turns around in horror.  There's a hockey-masked
                 figure with an axe coming up behind James.

                                         JAMES
                           Trevor -- Trevor Moorehouse!

                 He screams as the masked man yells with the axe in the
                 air.

                 The yelling turns into laughter.

                 Mike is okay, and the man removes his mask.  It is Ryan.

                                         RYAN
                                (laughing)
                           You were saying something about
                           fictitious local psychopaths?

                                         MIKE
                           We got him.

                                         RYAN
                           Amen, brother.

                           What's going on?

                                         RYAN
                           We're just having a little fun at
                           James' expense.

                                         ANGELA
                           Tell him about the psychopath,
                           then they come out dressed --
                           that's hot, baby.

                                         RYAN
                           That was beautiful with the blood.

                                         MIKE
                           Thank you.  Thank you very much.

                           Rick was right about you.

                 James begins to walk away.

                                         JAMES
                           You are an asshole.

                                         RYAN
                           What did you say?

                           I said you're an asshole.

                 Ryan tackles James to the ground.

                 Ryan falls first though.

                                         JAMES (CONT'D)
                           Come on, man.

                                         RYAN
                           Fuck.

                           Break it up, guys!

                 They restrain Ryan.

                                         RYAN
                           You're dead, you little fucker! 
                           Don't fuck with me!  Fuck you,
                           bitch.

                                (pointing)
                           Get your little friend out of here
                           before he gets hurt.

                           Easy!

                 They all runs back to the cabin except for James and
                 Sophie.

                                         SOPHIE

                           I've had to deal with.  He
                           certainly won't be the last.

                           I'm gonna head back up, but I'll

                                         SOPHIE
                           Don't let that loser get to you.

                                         JAMES
                           We'll see.

                                         SOPHIE
                           Good night.
