“A SCENE Of HORROR” by Bradley Alan (Rated “R”)

Alright, My Peeps.

This Is A Tinkered-With Version Of Something I’d Written About A Decade Ago.

In 2003, Actually.

The Tinkering Part Is An Expansion Of The Setting Of The Scene.

The Actual Parts Of The People In The Scene Haven’t Been Much Tinkered-With At All.

I’ll Warn You Now…

…My Dream Of Writing, Especially When Thinking About Potential Movie Scenes, Or Screenplays, Etc, Has NEVER Been Geared Toward The Goal Of One-Day Winning An Academy Award.

Actually…

…I Never Considered Winning Any Awards For It.

I Wanted To Write “B-MOVIES“…

…Ya Know…

…More Like A “SYFY CHANNEL ORIGINAL” Type Of Film.

I’m Not So Good When It Comes To Dramatic Writing…

…Nor Really Comedy Writing, Either.

BUT…

…Boy, Oh Boy, Can I Write Some Quality CHEESE!

This Piece…

A SCENE Of HORROR

by Bradley Alan

…Is Exactly That.

It Was Written To, Hopefully, One Day Be Expanded To The Point Of Having An Entire Screenplay.

A CHEESE LADEN SCREENPLAY!

πŸ˜€

It Really Is…

…(RATEDR“)…

…So If You’re Easily Offended By Harsh Language, I Doubt You’ll Like It So Much.

Fair Warning.

πŸ˜‰

Alright…

…Here We Go, Kiddies.

I’ve Left The Setting Rather Ambiguous, As I’m Sure This Scene Could Be Used In A Couple Different Types Of Horror Flick.

Most Notably, I Think It Could Be Used For Something Like A Zombie Apocalypse Type Flick, Or Simply A Flick Where There’s A Small Group Of Folks On The Run From Someone, Or Something.

That’s Actually The Least Important Part Of What I’m Presenting Here, As I Was More Concerned About The Characters, And What They’ve Got Going On.

Whatever, Or Whom Ever, They’re Running From Is Obviously Bad Enough That The Small Group Of Folks Is Very Noticeably Shaken To The Point Of Hysteria.

The Scene Is Of A Small Group Of About 5 Or 6 People, Though Only Three People Are Participating In The Speaking Portions Of The Scene.

And Now To Begin

It’s The Dead Of Night.

(((Pun Totally Intended, By The Way.)))

GIRL #1:

(Sobbing, Hysterical)

We’re Going To Die! We’re ALL Going To Die, I Just Know It!

GUY #1:

(Almost Frantic, But Calmer Than The Rest Of Them)

LOOK, Just Shut The Fuck Up And Let Me THINK!

GIRL #1:

(Sobbing Harder Than Before, Much More Hysterical)

“But We’re Going To Die! They’re Going To Find Us! We’re Going To Die! I Know We Are!”

GUY #1:

(More Forceful Than Before)

Look You Crazy Bitch, I’ve Seen Enough Scary Movies To Know Your Hysterical Ass is No Good To Us Right Now! If You Don’t Shut The Fuck Up NOW, I’ll Kill You Myself Just To Save Everyone Else!

GIRL #1:

(Still Pretty Hysterical, But The Sobbing Has Suddenly Stopped)

HEY, Who The Hell Do You Think You Are! You…

GUY #1:

(Gets Up In GIRL #1's Face, He's Much More Forceful This Time)

ONE MORE FUCKIN’ WORD! JUST ONE FUCKIN’ MORE, AND I’LL DECK YOU! JUST ONE FUCKIN’ MORE!

GUY #2:

(Frantically Comes-Over To The Aide Of GIRL #1)

HEY! YOU CAN’T TALK TO HER THAT WAY! Y…

--(GUY #1 Totally Decks GUY #2 With A Savage Uppercut To The Chin)--
--(GUY #2 Falls Hard To The Ground, Totally Laid Out)--
--(GUY #1 Turns Toward GIRL #1)--

GUY #1:

(As Forcefully As Possible)

AND THAT GOES FOR YOU AND EVERYONE ELSE! I AM NOT GOING TO DIE OUT HERE BECAUSE Of YOU! YOU WANNA BITCH, SCREAM, OR ANY OTHER FUCKIN’ THING, FINE! BUT NOT WITHIN A HUNDRED FUCKIN’ MILES OF ME! GOT IT!?!?!

--((DEAD SILENCE))--

GUY #1:

(Still Forceful, But Noticeably Calmer)

Good! Now, Let’s Keep Moving!

GIRL #1:

(A Bit More Whiny Than Frantic, And Holding Back Tears)

And THEN WHAT!?

--(GUY #1 Begins Helping Up GUY #2)--

GUY #1:

(The Calmest He's Been Thus Far)

Try To Survive The Night.

Like I Said, My Peeps…

…I Wanna Write A “B-Movie“…

…And That’s Exactly How This Was Thought-Out.

Not As Something To Be In Some Fancy-Ass Studio Drama….

…But As Something To Be On The “SYFY CHANNEL” On A Saturday Night!

A CHEESE-TASTIC CHEESE-FEST!!!

It Was Fun…

…Right?!?

?!?

Riiight?!?

?!?!?

  1. Nice send-up of the usual “Girl screaming We’re gonna die” trope! πŸ˜€ Guy #1 snapping at the girl, then helping up Guy #2 is a total subversion (180Β° turn) of what would normally be Guy #1’s clichΓ©d responses and actions.

    “Scream” was one of the first movies that was self-aware of its own ‘slasher movie’ tropes. πŸ˜‰

  2. The thing I like about B movies is that they’re fun. I judge a B movie less harshly than a crappy “A” movie. To illustrate, “Swamp Thing” will always be cooler than “Independence Day” (they didn’t HAVE to make that movie, you know).
