  1. 1. Darkness by Brandon Wood
  2. 2. FADE IN: EXT. MAIN HOUSE. NIGHT We start with a wide shot of the house a bright light in the corner of the screen as the camera slowly moves closer and closer to the house the street is silent. INT. MAIN HOUSE. NIGHT The camera slowly moves through the door way a close up of Dave (eighteen) shaking and sweating a shadow towering over his bed. EXT. DREAM WORLD HOUSE. NIGHT A third person view of Dave staring at his house everything is pitch black except from his house and a lamp post shining bright out side of the house. Dave looks around confused wondering what was going on. Dave slowly walk towards the front door and steps inside. INT. DEATH SCENE. NIGHT Dave turns into the living room he sees a black silhouette hanging from the roof. 360 view of Dave confused and scared. DAVE Hello are you alright. Hello. INT. DEATH SCENE. NIGHT Dave runs over and places the dark figure on the ground he realises that its his next door neighbour. He runs to the front door scared. (Bang) Dave hears a nock on the door behind him he turns around he sees a shadow. The shadow looked like a reaper holding a sharp scythe with rugged cloak after seeing the shadow he awoke sweating in his bed.
  3. 3. .2 EXT. COLLEGE STREET. 3 A.M. This is a wide shot of Dave with some of his friends we see Dave split up from his friend to walk home. DAVE Bye guys As he says bye he hears a scream from down the street and he sees smoke pouring from the house windows he runs over and enters the house. EXT. BURNING HOUSE. 3 A.M. Dave runs into the house and covers his face with his t- shirt he sees someone lying on the floor (you hear a heart beat in the background) he runs to see if the person is ok as he touches the person to see if they are ok. Camera cuts to view of Dave’s shadow as he touches the person the shadow swings the scythe at the person (The heartbeat in the background stops). Dave checks for a pulse but feels nothing he carry’s the person out of the house and calls 911. INT. PSYCHOLOGIST OFFICE. 3:30 P.M. Dave goes to see a Psychologist to talk about the visions and dream he has been having he also tells the psychologist what happened with the person he touched in the burning house about the sound of the heartbeat. Dave knocks on the door. (Knock Knock) DAVE Hello
  4. 4. .3 PSYCHOLOGIST Come in. DAVE I have been having these visions and dreams of people dying these people I have seen in my dreams are people that I have tried to help them and when I help things go wrong and they die I didn't know who to talk to about this. The people that I helps hearts stop beating when I touch them I also keep seeing a dark figure where ever I go but the first time I had seen it was in my nightmare. I feel as if something dark and evil has latched on to me. I think that Im the reason people are dying. PSYCHOLOGIST How long have these dreams been going on. How many people have you seen die? DAVE I have been having them for a while but it wasn't until today that someone I touched died. I have seen articles of people in my dreams having unexpected deaths but I thought nothing of it until now. PSYCHOLOGIST I don't think that you have anything to do with the deaths I think your just depressed. Depression causes people to see and think things.
  5. 5. .4 Dave paces back and forth DAVE I’m telling you the truth I'm not lying know its my fault. It scares me and makes me feel guilty as I blame myself for their deaths as it has to be my fault my dreams and visions have come true and innocent people are dying. I also se a dark figure it looks like a grim reaper I have only seen it two times but one was in my dreams. PSYCHOLOGIST A shadow? Thats eccentric I have never heard about it before. It must just be a side effect of depression. I can give you some medication but you need to stop thinking this way the deaths of those people aren't your fault you where just in the wrong place at the wrong time. DAVE But what about my dreams the visions I have been having the dark shadow. The Psychologist comforts Dave. PSYCHOLOGIST I think that your depression is causing you to create memories that where never there that never happened. I can get you some medication and hopefully that will help. Your not harming your self are you. Dave sees the reapers shadow behind the Psychologist. Dave hears a voice. VOICE Kill Her Dave shivers DAVE I have to go I don't want to hurt you.
  6. 6. .5 PSYCHOLOGIST DAVE WAIT The door slams shut as Dave runs off EXT. OUTSIDE HOUSE. 4:50 P.M. As Dave walks to his front door he notices yellow tape around his neighbours house and police cars he sees a body being carried out of the house in a body bag. INT. HOUSE/HOME. 5:00 P.M. Dave runs into his house DAVE Mom? Mom? Dave shouts 
 MOTHER Im in here what do you want? DAVE Nothing. Well actually I have been having these visions I keep seeing a dark figure and I think I am the reason for people dying. Like are neighbour He was in my dream last night and he died and now he is dead their has to be a connection. MOTHER Don't be silly its not your fault thats impossible. DAVE I dreamt about his death I know it sounds weird but I did. I must be the reason
  7. 7. .6 he’s dead. And I cant live with my self knowing I have done this to people. MOTHER Dave stop it this will effect your life you have done nothing wrong. DAVE Why wont anyone listen to me? I cant live with this guilt. MOTHER Dave come here I'm sorry. DAVE. Dave runs upstairs DAVE Leave me alone INT. HOUSE. 5:20 P.M. Dave Run up stairs and entered his room he started having visions of people dying His mom was one of them he didn't want anyone else to get hurt Dave swallows all of the pills he was given by the PSYCHOLOGIST he passes out. Dave's mom finds him on the floor with the empty bottle of pill next to him she calls the Hospital as she touches Dave she starts having a heart attack. When the medics arrive they find the front door wide open and they see Dave’s mom lying on the floor dead. later that day the medic receive a call about someone being unconscious in an ally next to Dave’s house.
