4. A wolf at the Door

HUE VO:

It’s been a whole day since our attack on the auditorium, or as I like to call it: My farewell to arms. Is this my punishment for being a traitor to Derek and Ghost back at their place? I can still feel my fingers wiggling. But they’re not there anymore. If I could turn back time, things would be so much more different. I wouldn’t have run for the exit, I wouldn’t have betrayed Ghost, I wouldn’t have done any of this. I would have just kept running. Maybe that’s what I’m best at.

 

EXT – ROOF

(WALLACE stands guard as GHOST appears. He takes out a radio)

WALLACE:

What are you doing with that?

GHOST:

Communication. I figured why not bring it along and try to make more contact?

WALLACE:

You really think that pesky little thing will break the audio waves?

GHOST:

It should. This is how we found Derek and Freeman.

WALLACE:

So you’re gonna send an SOS out to anyone out there who may be still alive and tell them to come to the private school?

GHOST:

Exactly. This place is the best thing we’ve had in days. Plus Joel and Mr. Wormer are the nicest survivors we’ve met yet.

WALLACE:

You mean they’re the only the survivors we’ve met.

GHOST;

You know what I mean. You can help me with this if you want, Wallace.

WALLACE:

No, thanks. I’m still surveying the area.

GHOST:

Fine.

(GHOST clears his throat)

GHOST:

Attention, attention. Can anybody hear me? If you are out there, you are not alone. There are other survivors.

 

INT – COURT YARD

(JOEL and IRVING drag out the dead corpses into the court yard)

JOEL:

That should be the last of them.

IRVING:

Good. We’re running out of gasoline.

JOEL:

We’ll have to make a run. I know where there’s a general store around here.

IRVING:

Burning the dead can take a lot out of you.

JOEL:

What needs to be done needs to be done.

IRVING:

Make sure to cover your mouth this time. We don’t need you getting sick from all the fumes.

JOEL:

Fine, fine.

 

INT – NURSES OFFICE

KENNETH:

Okay, let’s look at that hand.

HUE:

This is no time to be funny.

KENNETH:

Sorry. Let’s look at that wound.

(HUE holds up his arm)

KENNETH:

Looks like the bandages did their trick. That’s good.

HUE:

Good.

KENNETH:

Mr. Wormer gave me some medicine from the first aid kit that should help you with the pain.

HUE:

Great.

KENNETH:

Here you go.

 

INT – WORMERS OFFICE

LUKE:

Does the PA system still work?

WORMER:

It does. But I never use it because it could attract the jelly brains.

LUKE:

Ah. I see.

WORMER:

I have a question, young man.

LUKE:

Go ahead and ask.

WORMER:

I can’t help but notice your injury. Where did you get it?

LUKE:

It’s kind of a long and depressing story.

WORMER:

I have time.

LUKE:

I was shot by a former member of our group.

WORMER:

I’m sorry.

LUKE:

It’s okay. She’s gone now.

WORMER:

You deserve a smoke.

(WORMER offers LUKE a cigar)

WORMER:

Cigar?

LUKE:

No thanks but I don’t smoke. And you really shouldn’t either.

WORMER:

Oh come on. It’ll put hair on your chest.

LUKE:

I’m not sure if I should.

WORMER:

Fine. I’ll just smoke this in the hallway then.

 

INT – ENGLISH HALL

YOLANDA:

What’s your favorite thing about me?

FREEMAN:

Your smile.

YOLANDA:

Awe, how sweet. I love your eyes. They’re just so beautiful.

FREEMAN:

Have I told you how perfect you are?

YOLANDA:

Not recently.

FREEMAN:

Well you are.

YOLANDA:

I think you and I should go into this room right and create a little raw footage of our own.

FREEMAN:

Again?

YOLANDA:

Why not?

FREEMAN:

After you, Miss.

(The two smile and head into the room)

 

INT – CAFETERIA

DESIREE:

Before the incident, I used to be a big Nirvana fan.

DEREK:

Well call me crazy but I prefer the Foo Fighters.

DESIREE:

Well you’re crazy!

 DEREK:

Hey, I’m not denying that Kurt Cobain was a talented individual. I just think that Dave Grohl has that bigger chops.

DESIREE:

Kurt inspired a generation. Dave regurgitates rock music.

DEREK:

Um, no you didn’t just say that. Dave Grohl is amazing.

DESIREE:

He’s a talented drummer, yes-

DEREK (playfully):

Oh shut up.

(The two start to laugh)

DEREK:

You have a really pretty laugh.

DESIREE:

Thank you. Your laugh is quite manly.

DEREK:

Well I would hope so.

 

EXT – ROOF

GHOST:

If anyone can hear me!

WALLACE:

No one is listening, Ghost. Come on, I’m getting kinda hungry. Let’s go grab a quick bite to eat and continue this later. Sound good?

GHOST: (beat):

Fine.

(The two get up and exit)

 

INT – WORMERS OFFICE

(LUKE is flipping through WORMERS vinyl collection)

LUKE:

Hm. Wormer has a pretty decent vinyl collection. I wonder…

(LUKE takes out a record and takes it over to a record player next to the PA system)

LUKE:

Alright. How does this PA thingy work?

(He switches it on)

LUKE:

Testing, testing. Attention Rockville Private School survivors. This is your DJ for the afternoon, DJ Luke Warm and we’re going to play some classics for you today ala Mr. Noah Van Wormer. But first, a little piece to relax you with.

(LUKE loads the vinyl up and sets it in motion. A soft piano ballad starts to play throughout the school)

 

INT – CAFETERIA

(The ballad is heard playing over the PA system)

DESIREE:

Are we allowed to do that?

DEREK:

I don’t know. But this sure is nice. Care to dance?

DESIREE:

I was never much of a dancer.

DEREK:

Neither was I.

(DESIREE giggles and takes DEREKS hand)

DESIREE:

Lead the way, cowboy.

 

INT – HALLWAY

JOEL:

That’s one of Noah’s favorite songs playing.

IRVING:

Why is it playing over the PA system?

JOEL:

I don’t know.

IRVING:

I’ll go tell him to shut it off.

 

INT – WORMERS OFFICE

(WORMER runs into the room)

WORMER:

Are you mad!? Turn that off immediately.

LUKE:

Oh calm down, Noah. Have a little fun.

WORMER:

We’re going to attract those things if you play this any louder.

LUKE:

No I’m not. You need to relax and take a breather. Everything is going to be fine.

(Suddenly, the window explodes. Bullets fly in)

WORMER:

Ah! My shoulder!

(WORMER falls down)

LUKE:

Noah!

WORMER:

Get down Luke!

(LUKE gets down. The record player scratches. Bullets keep flying in)

LUKE:

What’s happening!?

WORMER:

I don’t know!

 

INT – HALLWAY

WALLACE:

Irving! I’m hearing gunshots!

IRVING:

Get up to the roof and find out what the hell is going on.

WALLACE:

Right. Make sure your walkie-talkie is turned on.

 

INT – ENGLISH LAB

YOLANDA:

What was that?

FREEMAN:

What?

YOLANDA:

I heard a loud bang.

FREEMAN:

It was probably just me baby.

YOLANDA:

No. It came from down the hallway-

(The windows explode)

YOLANDA:

Ahh!

FREEMAN:

Stay down!

YOLANDA:

What the hell is going on!?

FREEMAN:

Someone is shooting at us.

 

INT – NURSES OFFICE

HUE:

What the fuck, man!? What the fuck!?

KENNETH:

We’re safe in here, Hue. Whatever is going on out there, we’re safe in here.

HUE:

Is someone attacking us?

KENNETH:

I don’t know!

HUE:

Why would someone want to attack us!

KENNETH:

I said I don’t know! Hand me that bag!

(HUE hands him the bag. KENNETH pulls out a brand new bottle of wine)

HUE:

Where’d you get that bottle of wine?

KENNETH:

None of your business.

HUE:

Can I have some?

KENNETH:

If you keep your mouth shut about it. Sure.

 

EXT – ROOF

(WALLACE gets up on the roof and hurries to the edge)

WALLACE:

Come on Betsy. Tell me what you see.

(Pause)

Holy fucking shit.

(WALLACE takes out the walkie-talkie)

Hey Irving…we have a situation here.

 

INT – WORMERS OFFICE

(IRVING kicks open the door)

IRVING:

Wormer! Luke! Are you two alright?

LUKE:

Wormers been shot!

WORMER:

It’s just a graze. But still, I’m scared shitless.

IRVING:

Don’t worry, we all are. Come on, I’m getting you out of here and away from these windows.

 

INT – CAFETERIA

DEREK:

What are you doing?

DESIREE:

What does it look like I’m doing? I’m taking this shotgun and going outside to kill whoever is doing this.

DEREK:

That’s practically suicide! You don’t know how many people are out there.

DESIREE:

I’m not going to sit here and let them shoot up this school into Swiss cheese.

DEREK:

Fine. Then I’m going with you.

DESIREE:

Derek!

DESIREE:

You’re not going alone.

JOEL:

I’m going too.

(JOEL appears)

DESIREE:

Mr. Moffat! Where did you come from?

JOEL:

The courtyard. Wherever these bastards are, they’re doing damage to the entire school. I’m not having it.

DEREK:

Then let’s do something about it.

JOEL:

Let’s go kill some hoe, hoe, hoes.

 

INT – MAIN ENTRANCE

GHOST:

Irving, what should we do?

IRVING:

Ghost, I want you to go make sure Kenneth and Hue are alright.

GHOST:

I can do that!

IRVING:

Good. Because Wormer needs some stitches too. I sent him and Luke down there as well.

GHOST:

Okay. I’ll go tend to them.

(GHOST exits)

IRVING:

That a boy.

DEREK:

Irving! We’re ready to attack.

IRVING:

I’m sorry?

DESIREE:

All three of us are ready to join you in finding out who’s out there. We’re not standing by and letting them destroy our safety net.

JOEL:

The kids got points, Irving.

IRVING:

This is serious business, everyone. Wallace phoned me in the details and you’re not going to like what’s out there.

(YOLANDA and FREEMAN enter)

FREEMAN:

We never liked what was out there in the first place, Irving.

YOLANDA:

Might as well let us see what evils lie before us next.

IRVING:

But everyone-

DEREK:

Irving, we’re all in this together.

IRVING:

Fine. I warned you.

(IRVING goes to the front door and opens it up)

 

EXT – ROCKVILLE PRIVATE SCHOOL

(The gang walk onto the front stoop of the school)

DEREK:

Holy shit…

(Before the school stands an army of men and trucks. The lead truck has a mini gun on top of it)

DESIREE:

How many men are out there?

IRVING:

Wallace predicted seventy.

FREEMAN:

Does that convoy have a mini gun attached to it?

IRVING:

Yep.

(The man convoy’s front door opens up and out steps OLC)

OLC:

And it isn’t even my birthday!

DEREK:

No fucking way.

OLC:

Look at these group of morose motherfuckers who stands before me. All bleary eyed and weak from their travels. Fighting the dead and thinking they’ll survive by hiding in a giant school.

IRVING:

How’d you find us, Olc?

OLC:

We were on the road and we came across a little radio signal. Apparently your friend Ghost sent out a transmission hoping to find other survivors. Guess what? Here we are! Surprise!

IRVING:

You’re not invited here, Olc.

OLC:

I’m sorry. I didn’t know we weren’t invite. I guess I didn’t get the invitation. I’ll just grab my army of men and take them back to my warehouse and we’ll fuck our imaginary girlfriends and pretend to have a good time while you sons of bitches survive off the fruits of your victor.

FREEMAN:

You’ve already done enough damage.

OLC:

Well hello there stubby! I remember you. Fun times, fun times. Let me tell you something, you people are tough to find sometimes. Even when you leave a group member behind to starve to death and she promises to help me find you…your tough to find.

IRVING:

Mary?

OLC:

Oh you remember her? Yep. Good ole’ Mary. It’s too bad she proved to be of no good help. So instead she helped me redesign my living room my painting the walls red with her blood.

IRVING:

You son of a-

OLC:

Don’t do it. Don’t even dare. Now the important thing is I found you all. And I even got a bonus!

DEREK:

Excuse me?

OLC:

Wes, please show these lucky contestants what’s waiting for them behind door number one!

WES:

Yes, Sir.

(WES opens up the shotgun door to the convoy and outsteps CHET)

CHET:

Why hello there you fuckwits. Guess whose back?

FREEMAN:

Chet!?

CHET:

You bet your fucking life on it!

OLC:

You see, I stumbled across this puny little simpleton in the woods. I was going to slaughter him but I’ve built up a liking to his moxie. And when we discovered the radio signal, he told me who it belonged to and we quickly followed it. He became a big help.

CHET:

That’s right.

OLC:

So you all are in big trouble now.

IRVING:

If you think we’re surrendering to you Olc, you’re wrong.

OLC:

Actually I was hoping you weren’t because this would be more fun. Pack it up men!

(Everyone starts to head out)

CHET:

Where we going?

OLC:

Step one, initiate the noise. Where there’s noise, they’ll come. We’ll be back if you’re still alive! Tootaloo!

(OLC and CHET drive away with their men)

DESIREE:

They’re just leaving?

IRVING:

Olc has something up his sleeve.

(The sound of moaning is heard)

JOEL:

Shit.

IRVING:

Everybody inside.

DEREK:

What’s going on?

IRVING:

All the gun play they made, it attracted roamers. They’ll be here in no time. Inside now!

(Everyone runs inside and closes the doors)

 

EXT – ROOF

(Thunder is heard)

WALLACE:

Shit that’s a large herd. I don’t know if the gate will be able to hold them.

(It starts to rain)

WALLACE:

And so it begins…
