5. Scene 5
INT. JOHN’S KITCHEN – DAY
“SUSPICIOUS MINDS” from Elvis Presley plays. JOHN is shown sharpening a knife in his kitchen. From over his shoulder his smiling reflection is shown in the knife before he walks into the living room.
JANE is shown on his floor, her arms and legs bound and her mouth muted by duct tape. She is clad in a light pink slip-like garment made of silk. Her eyes wide, she tries to scream but it's muffled. Tears stream down her cheeks. JOHN kneels by her and brushes some hair behind her ear, shushing her softly. He runs the blade down her cheek and she strains and squirms as she tries to yell out once more.
The big living room window and its view are the only things seen. The curtains are draped over the window, but they're cracked just slightly to see a nice clear day and there are two children playing with a dog across the street. JANE’S groans and wines can be heard as the camera is on the children. The quick sound of the knife plunging into JANE’S stomach can be heard before another quieted yelp. There is another shush from JOHN before the plunging knife’s sound is heard again… And again… And again until there's no more sound from JANE.
