NIGHTMARE 13 -- FREDDY MEETS JASON
by Lewis Abernathy
EXT. ELM STREET - DAY
MEAGAN is coming down the sidewalk in slow motion.
Her dress and long hair blow slightly in the breeze.
The SOUND of CHILDREN CHANTING increases.
One... two... Freddy's coming for
On "you" there is a RUMBLE and a flash -- like quick
lightning only evil. (Choice flashes from Nightmare on
Elm Street 1 & 2).
Meagan turns at 1665. A beautiful white, two-story
house, thick with lush green foliage. Several beautiful
children, all dressed in bright white, play hopscotch
and jumprope on the front walk.
Three... four... better lock your
Close on a little girl's foot coming down on the number
"4" drawn on concrete.
Another RUMBLE and flash -- longer, LOUDER. (Flashes
from Nightmare 3 & 4).
Meagan continues up the walk, the wind is blowing a
little harder now. The trees are brown, the leaves
Moving up the walk, closer to the house... only now
it's a little darker, needs some paint. On the front
porch, a LITTLE GIRL rides a tricycle.
RUMBLE. Flash. (Nightmare 5 and Freddy's Dead).
...grab your crucifix.. ix.. ix..
The "ix" echoes away, becoming the faint "Ka ka ka"
we all recognize as Jason's theme. Meagan turns to
find that the children in the yard have vanished. It's
The trees are dead, the grass is gone, and the horizon
stretches off into utter nothingness. Meagan turns
back to the little girl.
But the little girl has gone. Only the tricycle
remains. It circles once, the front door CREAKS open,
and the empty tricycle peddles inside. Meagan follows
it into the...
INT. HOUSE ON ELM STREET - CONTINUOUS ACTION
Meagan enters the house slowly, watching as the tri-
cycle rides off down a creepy hallway and disappears.
Then the front door blows shut behind Meagan. She
tries to open it -- locked.
Then faint VOICES cause Meagan to pause. She listens,
trying to make out the low murmur. Then a little girl's
GIGGLE. Meagan recognizes it as her sister's.
Meagan moves up the stairs, going down the hall...
following the voices (we recognize the other voice as
belonging to Freddy). Meagan enters a door at the
end of the hallway, moving into...
INT. LIZZY'S ROOM (NIGHTMARE) - CONTINOUS ACTION
On the floor, near her bed, is Meagan's thirteen year
old sister -- LIZZY. Slow for her age, Lizzy sits and
draws with crayons.
Lizzy. What are you doing here?
Playing with my friend.
Meagan looks at the drawings -- childlike renderings
He lives under the bed.
Meagan slowly gets to her knees and takes a peek under
Suddenly, a doll-sized Freddy scurries out from under
the bed, flashing past Meagan's face and running out
the door. Meagan yelps and touches her face -- five
tiny slash marks on her cheek. Lizzy clucks.
You scared him...
Meagan looks out the door, incredulous.
I scared him?
But when Meagan looks back, Lizzy is gone.
Lizzy echoes away as Meagan finds herself standing
INT. NIGHTMARE CHAPEL - CONTINUOUS ACTION
The tiny Freddy dashes from the pews and jumps into
a casket at the altar, slamming the lid shut. Meagan
goes to the casket and carefully opens the lid. Inside
-- a rotting corpse with worms and maggots crawling
all over it. Meagan screams and slams the lid back
The casket starts to move -- THUMP! THUMP! THUMP!
Then it stops. Tentatively, Meagan opens the lid again.
Inside -- FREDDY KRUEGER. He grabs her arm.
Where ya been all my death, baby?
Meagan screams. Freddy leaps out of the casket in a
I've been waitin' at the altar for
a long, long time!
Meagan looks down -- she's wearing a wedding dress,
spattered with blood. Behind her, the chapel has
filled with dozens of DEAD PEOPLE in various stages
of decay. A SATANIC PRIEST appears in the pulpit and
Are the bridesmaids in attendance?
Meagan looks to her left -- four girls hold bouquets,
dressed in body bags.
And the groomsmen...?
Freddy opens his tuxedo jacket to reveal several
trapped souls struggling to get out of his chest.
If anyone here believes that these
two should not be joined in unholy
matrimony, let him speak now or
forever rot in hell...
>From the back of the chapel, a voice:
Meagan turns. It's her boyfriend -- JESSE. He stands
in the chapel doorway, backlit by bright light, arms
Meagan runs to Jesse and grabs him, their arms
encircling one another. She looks up into Jesse's
eyes... only it isn't Jesse.
Meagan screams as Jason raises his machete, bringing
it down between her eyes...
TRANSITION CUT TO:
INT. MEAGAN'S ROOM - MORNING
Meagan opens an eye as her alarm clock BUZZES... she
was dreaming. She gets up quickly and crosses to her
dresser. She looks into the mirror, at the tiny cuts
on her cheek, and clucks. Then she exits, going into...
INT. LIZZY'S ROOM - CONTINUOUS ACTION
Meagan opens the door to her sister's room, breathing
a sigh of relief when she sees Lizzy curled up in bed
with a doll. Meagan smiles and starts to exit when
she notices something not quite right about the doll.
She moves closer and pulls Lizzy's arm away to reveal
a hideous little Freddy doll. Meagan gasps.
Suddenly, the doll opens it's eyes and sneers:
Well it ain't Raggedy Ann, bitch!
The Freddy doll flashes it's tiny glove of knives,
thrusting them deep into Meagan's chest.
HARD CUT TO:
INT. MEAGAN'S ROOM - MORNING (for real)
Meagan sits up suddenly in bed, clutching her chest.
She looks down and sees that there is nothing there.
Meagan sighs and falls back in her bed -- just a bad
ZZZZZZT! -- her alarm clock BUZZES. Meagan sits up
with a start again. Her fright turns to rage as she
pounds the alarm clock into submission. Meagan climbs
out of bed...
INT. LIZZY'S ROOM - MORNING
Meagan enters and finds Lizzy still asleep, clutching
her Raggedy Ann doll. She gently pries the doll away,
tossing it disdainfully away. Meagan picks up a small
glass unicorn and playfully prances it around on Lizzy's
Wake up, sleepy head. Time to wake
Lizzy's eyes flutter open. She smiles at her sister,
I had a bad dream.
I was scared.
Don't worry... they can't hurt you.
Lizzy hugs Meagan.
I'll never let anyone hurt you.
INT. KITCHEN - MORNING
CLOSE ON a small television set on the kitchen table.
A flashy graphic flashes across the screen: AM NEWS
SPECIAL REPORT -- COPS V.S. THE CULT -- DAY 13. A
NEWS REPORTER stands in front a police blockade. In
the background, dozens of POLICE and S.W.A.T. MEN
surround a small run-down, two-story house... Freddy's
As the sun rises on yet another
morning, still no end in sight for
the standoff between police and the
mysterious group known only as the
"Freddy" cult who seized the abandoned
house behind me just thirteen days
ago. These cultists -- mostly run-
away teenagers -- have managed to
keep police at bay for almost two
weeks while inside they take mind-
altering narcotics in order to
communicate with their god --
The reporter babbles on as Meagan enters the kitchen
where MEAGAN'S MOM is sitting watching the TV, gulping
down orange juice. Across from mom is MEAGAN'S DAD,
who is having coffee, reading the paper. Meagan pours
herself a cup and sits.
Meagan's mom grunts, transfixed on the news. Dad
looks over his paper long enough to smile and say,
just a little too cheerfully:
Meagan looks over at her mother, then back at her
father, mouthing the words "How's mom?", when suddenly
Meagan's mom bellows:
Lizzy! Get down here! Breakfast
is almost ready!
Meagan turns back to her dad but he has ducked back
into his paper. Meagan sighs and sips her coffee.
ANGLE ON TV -- a police booking photo of FRED KRUEGER.
Alleged child murderer Fred Krueger
was released on a legal technicality
but later burned to death at the
hands of a vigilante mob of grieving
parents. Some years later, a rash
of bizarre and unexplainable teen-
age deaths began leaving many in
the area to wonder... is Freddy
Meagan's younger sister -- LIZZY -- comes down to
breakfast. The microwave DINGS and Meagan's mom
pulls out three Pop Tarts, dealing them out to her
family like playing cards. Lizzy picks up her Pop
Hurry up and eat. You don't want
to be late for special school.
Mom! Don't call it that!
I hate that school. The other kids
are mean... and they're all re-
We don't use that word. They're
"special" children just like you're
Dad looks over at mom, who shoots him an angry look.
Dad takes a bite of his Pop Tart, sinking back behind
ANGLE ON TV --
The cult members have declined to
an on-camera interview but did send
out a note with a message. The note
-- which, by the way, appears to
have been written in blood -- reads...
(reads the note)
To the parents of Springwood --
Freddy lives! Soon he will come and
take one of your children as his
virgin bride. Then Freddy will -BEEP-
and his -BEEP- upon her -BEEP- and
-BEEP- and behold, a soulless child
shall be born. The vessel for Freddy
to rise and rule the darkness forever
A horn TOOTS outside.
That's Jesse. Let's go, Lizzy.
Meagan collects her books and her sister. This is
dad's cue to look at his watch and say:
Oh, look at the time! I've got to
be going... anyone need me to bring
anything home tonight?
I need an alarm clock.
What's wrong with your old one?
Meagan kisses her dad as she and Lizzy hurry out the
door. Meagan's dad looks over at his wife, who says:
We're almost out of vodka.
EXT. MEAGAN'S HOUSE - MORNING - CONTINUOUS ACTION
Meagan and Lizzy climb into JESSE's car.
Good morning! Hey, what's the matter?
I had another dream last night...
Was I naked?
No. You were Jason.
Jason? Oh, yeech...
Was I any good?
Meagan playfully smacks him as Jesse's car ROARS off.
INT. KITCHEN - SAME TIME
Meagan's dad hesitates at the front door, clutching
his keys and briefcase as he musters the courage to
Do you have to watch that crap all
the time? Months and months of the
O.J. Simpson trial, and now this...
Mom reaches over and switches off the TV. Dad smiles
slightly and exits. Mom waits until the door closes,
then takes a bottle of vodka and pours a goodly bit
into her orange juice. She takes a deep drink and
switches the set back on.
CLOSE ON TV as the news reporter interviews CAPTAIN
RENTON MURDOCH -- State Trooper.
I'm standing here with State Trooper
Captain Renton Murdoch, the man the
Governor has called in to deal with
the cultists because of his past
experience with occult-style
murderers. In fact, Trooper Murdoch
is the only law enforcement officer
ever to survive a one-on-one encounter
with notorious Camp Crystal Lake
killer -- Jason Voorhees.
You received some pretty nasty
injuries in your battle with Jason,
didn't you, Captain?
Nothing serious... just a few
What about these so called "Freddy"
cultists? They seem like pretty
tough customers. Think you'll have
any trouble getting them out of
No. Now that the Governor has given
me complete authority to deal with
these punks I should be putting an
end to their situation pretty quick.
Unless of course their attorney is
able to get them to come out peace-
fully... but I don't hold out much
hope for that.
Captain Renton Murdoch, ladies and
gentlemen. A tough cop... for tough
EXT. "FREDDY" CULT COMPOUND - MOMENTS LATER
Murdoch gets into the command car, sitting down next
to the S.W.A.T. COMMANDER sitting behind the wheel.
Damn media... oughtta be a law.
(gestures to house)
Is that shyster still in there
trying to talk them out?
Yeah... he's making them some kind
Damn lawyers... what a bunch of
assholes. Shakespeare was right --
kill all the lawyers. Then we could
kill all the punks with no hassles
and the world would be a safer place.
Ahhhhh... what did Shakespeare know?
Long-haired, English freak. He was
probably a punk.
INT. CULT COMPOUND - SAME TIME
Meanwhile, inside the house... the cult's sleazy LAWYER
is sitting on a crate in the middle of a dark room.
He is surrounded by CULTISTS -- heavily-armed teenage
punks in red and olive sweaters and Fedoras ala Freddy.
They stare out at him through sunglasses with red
flashing diodes that barely hide their burned and
The lawyer shifts uncomfortably on the crate as he
takes a deep snort from inside his briefcase held
neatly on his lap. Then he lifts his head, wiping
his nose nervously as he speaks:
So, as I explained to you before,
the revenues between the TV movie
deal and the book sale should be
adequate to fund your joint-defense.
And I think with my mass media
hypnosis argument I could get each
of you a reduced sentence on appeal
-- say... twenty years each. Out
in fifteen with good behavior?
HARD CUT TO:
EXT. CULT COMPOUND - MOMENTS LATER
The lawyer's disembodied head comes sailing out of
an upstairs window, smacking into the command car's
windshield with a loud SPLAT!
Murdoch curses and leaps out of the car, charging
the house as he BLASTS away with two nickel-plated
.45s. Suddenly GUNFIRE erupts from every window in
the house, BULLET HITS RIDDLING the cops cars,
SMASHING windows and emergency lights.
The S.W.A.T. TEAM follows Murdoch through the hail
of GUNFIRE as he kicks open the front door.
INT. CULT COMPOUND - NEXT INSTANT
WHACK! -- the door flies open and Murdoch and the
S.W.A.T. team move in. The windows have been covered
with foil, the walls have been painted black with
cult slogans written in red, making the whole house
black as pitch. The S.W.A.T. team puts on their
night vision goggles and starts moving through the
P.O.V. THROUGH NIGHT VISION GOGGLES as the S.W.A.T.
team goes through the house SHOOTING cultists (ala
the computer game DOOM). Then a blinding flash of
light and a S.W.A.T. guy goes down -- shot in the
Several of the cultists lead the attacking S.W.A.T.
team deeper into the house. As one of the S.W.A.T.
guys follows his foot trips a wire. A trap door
opens in the floor and the S.W.A.T. guy falls into
a pit, waist deep in water. Suddenly, the water
starts churning and the guy starts screaming -- it's
a tank of piranhas! Two other S.W.A.T. guys grab
his arms and pull him out. Too late -- his legs
have been shredded to the bone.
Another S.W.A.T. guy kicks in a door to a room and
steps in, FIRING his machine gun. A large scythe
swings down and severs both his arms at the elbows.
His arms fall to the floor, still FIRING the machine
The cultists race into a room, grabbing handrailing
bolted over head. They swing like monkeys across
the ceiling just as a S.W.A.T. guy charges into the
room behind them.
CLOSE ON S.W.A.T. GUY'S BOOTS as he steps onto a floor
covered with upturned nails. Several nails puncture
both boots, the points coming up through the laces.
The S.W.A.T. guy screams and another S.W.A.T. guy
barrels into the room to see what is wrong. He knocks
the first guy face-first into the floor o' nails.
Meanwhile, Murdoch is having a blast -- literally.
He kicks open the door to a room and guns down three
cultists as they try to escape out a window. As
the last body pitches to the floor, Murdoch yells:
Murdoch exits, laughing to himself.
The running GUNBATTLE continues as the cultists
retreat to the back of the house, throwing molotov
cocktails. Soon the first floor is ablaze. A S.W.A.T.
guy screams as he is consumed by FIRE. The cultists
thunder down a back staircase to the...
INT. THE BASEMENT - CONTINUOUS ACTION
The cultists uncover a secret passageway under the
house and most escape through the underground tunnel
just before the S.W.A.T. team comes BLASTING into
the basement. As the last of the remaining cultists
is capped off, a faint voice cries for help. The
S.W.A.T. commander raises up his hand.
Hold your fire!
He pulls off his night vision goggles and shines his
flashlight into the basement. Through the dense
smoke he sees a little girl in a white dress is tied
to a chair sitting on a crate. Underneath the chair
-- several sticks of dynamite wired to a timer. CLOSE
ON THE TIMER: 30... 29... 28...
LITTLE GIRL HOSTAGE
Help me, mister... please.
The S.W.A.T. commander rushes to the girl, kneeling
down to look at the bomb. Then he takes a Leatherman
tool from his vest and starts to work on the bomb's
Hang on, honey... I'll have you
out of there in a second.
Murdoch comes down the stairs. He goes to the secret
passageway and says:
Looks like we'll have to hunt the
rest of them down. Let's go before
they get too far.
We can't leave! Can't you see
we've got a situation here?
Murdoch looks at the little girl and shrugs.
You're crazy! I can't just leave
Forget it. I've seen this before.
There's nothing you can do.
I've got to try...
The S.W.A.T. commander wipes his brow and leans in
to work on the bomb again. CLOSE ON TIMER: 24...
The basement ceiling is now fully ABLAZE and chunks
of BURNING DEBRIS fall around the skittish S.W.A.T.
team. Murdoch looks at his watch in a bored fashion.
You're wasting your time.
The S.W.A.T. commander studies the wires for another
second, then glances back at the timer... 15... 14...
The S.W.A.T. commander whips out his Spyderco knife
and cuts the little girl loose. He carries her out
in his arms as he shouts to his men:
CLEAR OUT! SHE'S GOIN' BLOW!!!
The S.W.A.T. team exits the basement with Murdoch
bringing up the rear.
EXT. CULT COMPOUND - NEXT INSTANT
The S.W.A.T. commander staggers out with the little
girl, followed closely with the remainder of his men
and finally Murdoch. The commander throws himself to
the ground, covering the little girl with his body as
-- BA-BOOM!!! -- the Elm Street house EXPLODES!
Murdoch stands as debris rains down around him. He
As the dust settles, the S.W.A.T. commander rolls off
the little girl and starts checking her for injury.
Are you okay, honey?
Suddenly, the little girl jumps onto the S.W.A.T.
commander, flashing a glove of knives. She hisses:
LITTLE GIRL HOSTAGE
With a quick swing, the little girl slashes the
commander's face. She dives back for a plunge to
his throat when Murdoch walks up and kicks her off.
He puts his boot on her, holding her down as he
takes aim on her head with his pistol -- execution
The S.W.A.T. commander grabs Murdoch's arm just in
time. Several cops rush in and grab the girl,
dragging her off, kicking and screaming.
Jesus... you were going to kill
that kid, weren't you?
I told you you were wasting your
time. Once these kids go rabid,
best thing to do is put 'em down.
You can't be serious...
Dead serious. See... the world is
made up of rules. Kids don't like
rules. They rebel for a while, but
ultimately they start to fall in
line and become ordinary Joe's like
you and me. But some kids... dope
smokers mainly, watching their MTV...
Satanic lyrics melting what's left
of their brains... these kids grow
up to be punks. And when these punks
step as far over the line as these
"Freddy" punks have -- then we as
peace officers have no choice but
to kill them.
I didn't become a peace officer to
Punks. There's a difference...
(under his breath)
INT. HIGH SCHOOL - DAY
CLOSE ON GRAFFITI written across lockers -- FREDDY
We move from this to a small classroom window. Through
it we see Meagan sitting in economics class. The
instructor -- MISS KREPPS -- is lecturing.
It's hot. Several of the kids fan themselves,
struggling to stay awake while others have already
passed out on their desks. Meagan's eyes are heavy.
She looks over at Jesse, pretending to follow along
in his book, fast asleep. The antique oscillating
fan on Miss Krepps' desk CLICKS loudly as she drones
Meagan starts to drift off, when...
I asked if you were ready to give
your oral report?
Yes... I'm ready.
Please come up here to the podium.
Meagan gets up and goes to the podium amidst the
snickers of some of her classmates. Miss Krepps
snaps her fingers for quiet.
You won't think it's funny when
you haven't learned the fundamentals
of a free market economy... oh,
why do I waste my breath? You're
all going to grow up to be gas
station attendants and waitresses
anyway. Go ahead, Meagan.
My report is on Global Economic
Try and think of a world where there
is no poverty... no sickness... no
crime. A world where everyone is
happy to be alive and everyone lives
together in peace. This is my dream.
The fan on Miss Krepps' desk starts to CLICK louder,
BLOWING harder. Meagan raises an eyebrow but continues
with her report.
This dream is becoming a reality
with ever-growing international
CLOSE ON THE FAN as it changes... getting creepier...
turning into a Freddy-fan. BLOWING harder... CLICKING
Louder, Meagan. We can't hear you.
Meagan repeats the last few sentences, raising her
voice to be heard over the fan. Then pages of her
report start to blow away. She grabs at them as the
A bottle of glue stowed in the podium overturns and
spills to the floor at Meagan's feet. She bends over
to pick it up, when her skirt blows up. She presses
it down but the WIND is too great and the skirt
billows up, revealing her underwear. The class roars
Louder, Meagan... we still can't
But Meagan isn't reading her report anymore, she's
busy trying to push down her skirt when -- RIP! --
the WIND blows her skirt off. Her classmates fall
over themselves, laughing. RIP! -- Meagan's blouse
blows away. She tries to hide behind the podium when
that too is swept off.
Meagan clutches at her bra and panties as they start
to drift away -- thread by thread. She is almost
naked. Meagan looks up at her classmates, red in the
Her classmates point and laugh -- only now they are
all a bunch of old rotten skeletons. And up front,
in the center where Miss Krepps sat... is Freddy! He
wears a beanie with a propeller, points and laughs:
Aww... all dressed up and nowhere
Meagan screams, clutching at the last few tiny strands
of cloth that cover her body. She calls to Jesse,
Jesse... please, help me.
But Jesse just sits at his desk -- dead. He reaches
up and slowly lowers a hockey mask over his pale,
Looks like a photo opportunity to
Freddy pulls out an over-sized camera with a gargantuan
flashgun attached. The flash bulb is the size of a
beach ball and has a nuclear warning etched in the
front. Freddy sizes Meagan up in the viewfinder and
PHOOMPH!!! -- the flash bulb goes off with an atomic
light. Meagan screams as her skeleton is blown back
against the blackboard -- vaporized!
HARD CUT TO:
Meagan waking up in her seat suddenly. The classroom
as normal. Miss Krepps is standing over her, asking:
Meagan looks around, bewildered and confused.
I asked if you were ready to give
Meagan realizes that she was dreaming and pulls
Meagan stands up and faints.
INT. SCHOOL NURSE'S OFFICE - MINUTES LATER
MEAGAN'S P.O.V as the SCHOOL NURSE comes into FOCUS,
standing over her.
Meagan? Can you hear me? Do you
know where you are?
Meagan is laying on a couch, a cloth over her head.
I was day dreaming and then I woke
up but then it was like I was still
dreaming and then I woke up and
then I guess I fainted and now I'm
Are you sure?
Meagan stares at the nurse for a moment.
I'm waiting to see if you're going
to turn into Freddy.
Freddy... I see. You've been watching
too much CNN. That crazy "Freddy"
cult thing -- it's all over the TV
day and night -- you can't get away
from it. No wonder you kids are all
But this one was different... it
But that's just it, Meagan... dreams
aren't real. They're just broken
fragments of the subconscious mind.
Fear is real though, isn't it? And
if nightmares are fear, then doesn't
that make them real?!
And if the nightmares are real then
is reality like a dream?!
(cutting her off)
Meagan! You've got heat prostration...
The nurse slaps a wet towel over her face.
INT. SCHOOL HALLWAY - MOMENTS LATER
Jesse is waiting for Meagan as she emerges from the
nurse's office, muttering under her breath:
Old witch... what does she know?
She isn't even qualified to give a
shot and she's telling me that my
dreams aren't anything to worry
So she said you were okay?
Oh, sure... Madame Curie in there
says it's just a case of heat pro-
stration and an overdose of TV news.
Ruined my makeup, too.
So you're going back to class?
No. She gave me last period off.
Well, what are you bitching about?
I could have a compound fracture of
the skull and she wouldn't excuse me
Jesse! I've been having nightmares
for almost two weeks now and they
keep getting worse! Now I'm having
daymares! I want to know why!
Okay... well, didn't the nurse say
it was heat probation?
Meagan rolls her eyes in frustration.
You don't understand... I want to
know more about dreams. What they
mean... why we have them.
Okay, Meg, go look it up. You've
got the rest of the day off, that's
all I'm saying.
That's a good idea. Why don't you
cut last period and come with me?
Sure. Where are we going?
You want me to cut school so we can
go to the library?
INT. LIBRARY - AFTERNOON
Meagan pours through a big psychology book. Across
the table, Jesse peers into another psychology book.
Jesse looks up suddenly.
What? Oh, no... nothing yet.
Over Jesse's shoulder we see he has a copy of ROAD &
TRACK tucked inside his psychology book.
Did you know that our sub-conscious
retains everything that ever happened
to us? Everything. From the time
we're born until we die.
That's how Freddy gets at us...
by using our sub-conscious fears.
Fears our conscious minds have
repressed or forgotten.
I've got a news flash for you...
I'm not so sure... if Freddy exists
in our sub-conscious then he can
never be fully erased. Like a bad
memory... you may blot it out of
your mind but it will alway be
hiding someplace in your dreams.
Weren't you scared as a child by
something so stupid that you're
ashamed to admit it?
Well, what? What is it?
Well... when I was kid, my brother
took me to the carnival. And in the
penny arcade there was this robot
You know about Black Bart?
Duh. You put your quarter in and he
says, "Go ahead and draw, tenderfoot."
And then you pull your gun out and
That's just it -- I never could!
I'd point the gun right at him and
shoot, and I could never hit the guy.
So I always got killed.
No one can hit him -- it's a gyp.
Scared the shit out of me.
Meagan tries to hide her smile.
Isn't that scary? I mean... for a
Meagan laughs. Somebody shushes her.
Okay, smartass... what about you?
What scared you the most as a kid?
A dark mood falls over Meagan as her mind winds back.
I remember... Lizzy wandered off
one day and we couldn't find her.
The police came and everything. I
wasn't really worried until I saw
her picture on TV... then I got
Jesse, I can't explain it... but I
think something bad's going to
EXT. SPECIAL SCHOOL - AFTERNOON
Lizzy sits on the steps of her school, clutching
her books and Raggedy Ann doll... waiting. Behind
her, wearing a protective helmet, another learning
disabled kid - LEONARD - taunts her.
No, you are!
They forgot you again!
No, they didn't!
Yes, they forgot and you're goin'
to wait out here until it's dark
and then the monsters are goin'
come and get you!
No they won't, because I'm walkin'
Lizzy gets to her feet and starts walking. Leonard
calls after her:
Come back, Lizzy! You can wait with
me! I got forgot too, you know!
Lizzy keeps going, marching across the deserted school
yard. Leonard turns to go inside the school when he
bumps into a passing CULTIST. The cultist pushes him
down as he follows after Lizzy.
Okay... I'm going to have to report
Lizzy walks briskly along when she gets the feeling
she's being followed. She turns and sees a cultist
standing behind a tree several dozen yards behind her.
Lizzy turns away and quickens her pace but when she
glances back, the figure is still standing... but
Scared, Lizzy turns and runs, dropping her books as
she flees down the sidewalk. As she comes to the
street, a big black hearse suddenly pulls up in front
of her, the door swinging open wide. Burned arms
reach out to grab Lizzy. She screams.
The cultists grab Lizzy, pulling her into the car as
it roars off down the street.
CLOSE ON RAGGEDY ANN -- laying in the gutter.
EXT. MEAGAN'S HOUSE - AFTERNOON
Jesse's car pulls up to a sea of police cars parked
in front of Meagan's house. Meagan gets out of the
car and rushes inside.
INT. MEAGAN'S HOUSE - CONTINUOUS ACTION
COPS are everywhere as Meagan bursts into the house,
calling for her family. Jesse enters behind her when
Meagan's dad comes up, asking:
Didn't you get my message?
I called the school after lunch...
I had to stay late after work...
Meagan's mother bellows from the living room where
she is talking to a policeman taking notes. She is
drunk and has been crying.
Don't you dare blame this on her,
you sorry bastard! It's all your
Where have you been anyway?
A likely Goddamn story!
Meagan's mom breaks down sobbing.
Dad... what's wrong? What's happened?
She didn't come home from school
today. The police got a report that
a girl fitting Lizzy's description
was forced into a car by some
crazies. They're pretty sure it was
this "Freddy" cult.
Oh, my God...
Meagan's dad puts his arm around Meagan and tries to
Now don't worry. The police are
doing everything they can.
Meagan looks over and sees Murdoch talking to his
men when a voice from upstairs calls down:
Hey, Cap'n... better have a look
INT. LIZZY'S ROOM - NEXT SECOND
As Murdoch enters, he spots Lizzy's night table and
the small glass menagerie there. Murdoch picks up
the unicorn and admires it when a TROOPER draws his
attention to the floor next to the bed.
Laying there are several childlike drawings of Freddy,
including one that has "Freddy Lives" scrawled across
Meagan enters and sees the drawings. She gasps.
Looks like she was in the cult all
No... no, she wouldn't do that!
Lizzy wouldn't join Freddy's cult!
I know it's hard to believe, miss.
But a lot of good kids get caught
up in this kind of trouble.
Murdoch stares at the drawings, his jaw muscles
tightening. He clenches his fist, pulverizing the
Murdoch drops the broken pieces of the unicorn on
the table as he exits the room, brushing past Meagan.
INT. MEAGAN'S HOUSE - MOMENTS LATER
Meagan's dad follows Murdoch to the door, asking:
Captain Murdoch... is there any-
thing we can do?
You can pray, sir. Pray we find your
daughter before... well, before it's
too late. But rest assured, if I
can't persuade her to come back to
her loving home, then I'll do what's
best for her. I know you and your
wife wouldn't want her to suffer.
(to his men)
Come on... I want to go talk to
Murdoch and his men say "good-bye" and quickly exit.
EXT. MEAGAN'S HOUSE - MOMENTS LATER
As the last of the cops drive away, Meagan pulls
Jesse out of the house.
Where are we going?
Over to Stormie's.
Stormie? I thought you and her weren't
friends anymore since she stole that
twenty dollars from you.
That was her "klepto" phase... when
she was dating that gang member.
She dumped him a long time ago.
I still don't understand. What has
she got to do with Lizzy missing?
She used to be in the Freddy cult.
Maybe she knows where they took
They exit to Jesse's car.
INT. STORMIE'S ROOM - AFTERNOON
Meagan's high-strung best friend -- STORMIE -- is
blurting out at a mile-a-minute:
If I did know I would call the
police, you know that. I love Lizzy.
No telling what those freaks will
do to her. Those Freddy cult guys
are hard core.
I thought you were in the cult?
I was in the cult for a week cause
my boyfriend at the time... Slasher,
he was. But I just liked the music
and the clothes... when they were
clean, but not like the violence
and stuff. But that was just my
"cult" phase... but I got past that.
You know, just like my "gang" phase
when I was dating Ramon and then
before that was my "death rock"
phase when I was dating Stuart...
Uh, excuse me... but what phase
are we in now?
Militant feminist, man-hating phase,
what's it fuckin' to ya?!
Why don't you just let the cops find
her? That guy Renton Murdoch -- he
knows how to deal with these cultist
psychos. He was the man who got Jason
That guy in my dreams...
Jason kicked his ass.
QUICK CUT TO:
EXT. CAMP CRYSTAL LAKE - SOME YEARS AGO - NIGHT
Jesse narrates a short, fuzzy, silent flashback as
younger-looking Renton Murdoch is BLASTING away at
Jason in panic.
Well... yeah. But Murdoch put
thirteen bullets in Jason before
he hacked his head open.
Jason cleaves Murdoch's head with a machete. Murdoch
staggers back, raising his pistol.
But even with his head hacked open
and his brains leaking out, Murdoch
still managed to put his last bullet
in Jason's eye.
Murdoch FIRES, the bullet SMACKING Jason in the eye.
Thick blood runs down the hockey mask as Murdoch's
body hits the ground.
INT. HOSPITAL ROOM-
Murdoch lays in a bed, his head covered in bandages.
Tubes and hoses running everywhere to all sorts of
Well, one of my mom's boyfriends
worked at the hospital where they
took him. He said that Murdoch lost
more than half his brain and what
little that was left was all twisted
up inside. And they had to replace
his skull with a metal plate to
keep that from leaking out.
In a series of quick cuts we move in close on Murdoch's
eyes -- dark and menacing -- staring out at us.
They say he hasn't been the same
CUT BACK TO:
INT. STORMIE'S ROOM - CONTINUOUS ACTION
So what's different about him?
One thing... he used to be a
Democrat. Now he votes straight
I think he thinks Lizzy joined the
cult or something.
Oh, my God... he'll kill her.
I've got to find Lizzy myself. I've
got to find her and save her from
Freddy before that crazy cop kills
Just where are you going to look?
I mean, these cult guys could be
holding her anywhere.
Murdoch said something about going
to talk to somebody named Erwin.
Erwin Kelper! He used to be in the
Freddy cult! I bet he knows where
they took Lizzy!
Not Squirmin' Erwin -- that freak
that used to eat bugs?
(to Meagan; bright)
Erwin is scary smart -- always brought
home "A"s -- but he was kinda fucked
up, too... I mean, who isn't really?
Anyway, he quit the cult a few months
back and the cops put him away for
his own safety. They say Freddy's
put a death hex on Erwin.
A death hex?
Yes, a death hex. You know... where
someone wants you dead!
Where is he?
EXT. SPRINGWOOD MENTAL CENTER - AFTERNOON
Jesse, Meagan, and Stormie pull past the large sign
and into the parking lot. As Jesse puts the car in
park, Meagan turns to him and says:
I want you to stay here.
Don't be mad... it's just that you
might scare him.
What she's subtly trying to tell
you is that this needs a woman's
gentle touch... butthead.
Just stay here... okay?
Jesse grudgingly agrees. Meagan kisses Jesse on the
cheek. Stormie sticks her tongue out at him, then
turns as she and Meagan walk toward the main entrance.
INT. SPRINGWOOD MENTAL CENTER - MOMENTS LATER
The CRIES of the insane echo through the building as
the SECURITY GUARD escorts Meagan and Stormie down a
row of cell doors. He stops at one, tapping lightly
on the glass.
Yo, Erwin... you've got a couple
of visitors. Now be a good boy...
(to Meagan & Stormie)
You've got five minutes. I'll be
right down the hall if you need me.
The guard exits. Meagan and Stormie peer through the
thick window -- Erwin's padded cell appears vacant.
They exchange anxious looks, then Meagan presses a
little closer to the glass.
SPLAT! -- ERWIN suddenly presses his horribly burned
face to the glass as he screams:
SHOW ME YOUR ARMS! YOUR ARMS!
Meagan and Stormie jump back, startled. Then they
quickly bare their arms, turning them over for Erwin's
Where do you shoot?
He's talking about dream dope --
the stuff the cultists shoot up
with so they can talk to Freddy.
I don't do drugs.
You're not in the cult?
Didn't Freddy send you to kill me?
I don't trust you... better take off
your clothes so I can check you for
Chill, Erwin. We're here for some
hard data -- not a floppy disk.
Erwin flops the arms of his straight jacket, gesturing
to the inside of his cell -- empty except for a small
Well, what do you want? Can't you
see I'm busy?
Freddy's cult kidnapped my sister.
I told her you might know where
they took her.
I already told the cops everything
Tell me... please.
Look... I'm sorry about your sister,
but I've got my own problems with
Freddy. I'm a marked man, you know.
Then tell me why they took her...
To bear his child. Freddy wants to
be human again. In order to do that
he has to be "reborn".
How can he do that?
He has to marry a virgin on holy
ground. Then the cult consumate
the marriage by impregnating her.
The whole cult? Yeech!
Freddy's the son of a hundred maniacs.
It's sort of a tradition with him.
So the cult gets Lizzy pregnant?
And Freddy enters the soul of the
fetus through a dream state. Voila!
There is a moment as the girls take this in, then:
That's the stupidest shit I ever
Hey, they're not my rules... some-
body else wrote 'em.
Erwin... you've got to help me find
Lizzy. You're my only hope.
Erwin thinks about this for a second, then:
I'll help you find your sister, but
you've got to help me.
Anything. Just name it.
You have to help me kill Freddy.
Meagan and Stormie exchange looks.
But Freddy's dead.
(looks at Meagan)
If only in our dreams.
Stormie grabs Meagan by the arm and starts to pull
Come on, Meagan... our five minutes
is up. He's giving me the creeps.
But Meagan stays put and asks Erwin:
How can you kill a dream?
When it's not a dream.
Do we have a deal?
Erwin presses his palm against the glass. Meagan
thinks a moment, then puts her hand against the glass
EXT. STREET CORNER - AFTERNOON - A SHORT TIME LATER
Meagan, Jesse, and Stormie are standing in front of
a pay phone, arguing.
No! I won't do it!
Come on, Jesse! Please...?
It's illegal! I could go to jail!
How will they ever know? Don't be
such a pussy!
Oh, yeah? Why don't you call then?
Okay, I will!
No! They'll never believe her!
I can disguise my voice...
Hello, how do you do? My name is
Jesse. I think I'm a man but I'm
actually a wimp.
They'll never believe that. Come
on, Jesse... for me?
Okay... okay... I'll do it.
And I'm not a wimp!
Jesse sighs and steps into the phone booth. After a
moment's hesitation, Jesse steps out and immediately
both girls blurt out ten reasons why he should make
the call. Jesse calls for quiet and as soon as both
girls shut up, he says:
I need a quarter for the phone.
Meagan fishes out a quarter and hands it to him. Jesse
re-enters the booth.
ANGLE IN PHONE BOOTH as Jesse dials a number.
INT. SPRINGWOOD MENTAL CENTER - NEXT INSTANT
The security guard picks up his phone as it RINGS.
Springwood Mental Center... how
can I help you?
There's a bomb planted in your
Who is this?
If I were you -- I'd get my ass
out of there.
In the background, we hear Meagan and Stormie whisper
something to Jesse.
Oh, yeah... Freddy Lives.
CLICK! -- The guard's eyes grow wide.
EXT. SPRINGWOOD MENTAL CENTER - AFTERNOON -SECONDS LATER
The peaceful quiet of the asylum is shattered by a
fire ALARM. Soon all the INMATES start filing out
into the yard, loosely herded by the GUARDS. Erwin
files out with the others, still wearing his straight
Erwin looks over at the parking lot -- Jesse's car
flashes it's lights. Erwin starts to casually wander
off towards the fence between himself and freedom
when the SECURITY GUARD spots him and says:
Hey, Erwin... where do you think
Erwin ignores him, still moving towards the fence.
I'm talking to you, asshole!
Erwin breaks into a run. The guard takes off after
In the car, Jesse, Meagan, and Stormie watch as the
guard closes the distance.
He's not going to make it.
We've got to do something!
With grim determination, Jesse starts his car.
Jesse's car tears out of the parking lot, racing for
the fence. With a loud, metallic CHING, Jesse's car
drives into the fence, knocking that section down.
Erwin dances over the downed chain-link, diving into
an open window. Then, with a SQUEAL of tires and the
RENDING of metal, Jesse's car backs out of the fence,
does a 180, and PEELS off.
ANGLE INSIDE CAR as Stormie and Meagan help Erwin out
of his straight jacket. Once freed, Erwin extends his
hand to Jesse.
Hi, my name's Erwin. Thanks for
busting me out of there!
Jesse looks at Erwin's outstretched hand -- the
fingertips are all heavily bandaged.
Yeah, right... Look, Erwin, just do
me one favor -- don't eat nothing
disgusting. My stomach is tight
enough as it is.
The security guard runs up to the fence, huffing and
puffing, watching as Jesse's car disappears down the
street. Then he spots something in the fence and
plucks it out...
Jesse's front license plate.
INT. ABANDONED BOILER ROOM - DUSK
CLOSE ON LIZZY, screaming and crying as the cultists
close in around her. They rip her sleeve off and
inject her with a syringe. After a moment, Lizzy
starts to settle down... falling asleep...
The cultists lift Lizzy up over their heads and carry
her towards the big boiler. Inside -- a raging INFERNO.
LIZZY'S DREAM STATE P.O.V. -- as the cultists reach
the boiler, it splits open in the middle like a giant
gate. The two halves swing open wide to reveal...
INT. HELL - NIGHT - CONTINUOUS ACTION
A narrow rocky ledge extends out to a mausoleum atop
a tall, narrow mountain. On either side of the ledge
is a sheer drop to the bleak landscape below -- rivers
of hot molten lava stretching out for miles, filled
with LOST SOULS DROWNING and BURNING. Hundreds upon
hundreds of voices are SCREAMING and MOANING -- a
terrible chorus of the damned.
The cultists carry Lizzy across the rocky ledge to
the mausoleum. The outside of this ancient structure
is engraved with weird murals depicting the evils of
mankind. In the center -- a large iron gate that
swings open as the cultists near.
The cultists roll Lizzy over in their arms, holding
her tight as they push her face forward into the
mirror. The glass gives way like mercury, Lizzy's
face disappearing into the mirror.
ANGLE ON THE OTHER SIDE (UNDERWATER) -- Lizzy's
face stares out into utter blackness. Then, some-
thing large and evil looking swims up out of the
darkness. Clawed hands reach out and grab Lizzy by
the sides of the face as the huge, monstrous head
moves forward -- evil lips parting -- tongue slithering
The evil thing gives Lizzy a big, wet French kiss,
locking it's lips over hers. Several slippery some-
things slither into her mouth. Lizzy struggles, but
the big evil thing is way too strong. Finally, it
releases her and the cultists pull her back out.
The cultists carry Lizzy out of Hell and back into
INT. ABANDONED BOILER ROOM - CONTINUOUS ACTION
Horribly burned hands slap Lizzy back from her semi-
conscious state. Her eyes grow wide with fear again
as she opens her mouth to scream. Suddenly, she
doubles over and vomits up into a tupperware a
cultist thrusts under her.
Three evil-looking eels slither forth from Lizzy's
mouth -- the Dream Demons.
EXT. OLD POWER PLANT - DUSK
Several shadows flee into the night as Jesse's car
pulls up next to a run-down building.
INT. ABANDONED BOILER ROOM - MOMENTS LATER
Erwin leads Meagan, Jesse and Stormie down into the
old, burnt out boiler room. They work their way
towards the back, to a large table and a collection
of sofas and easy chair scattered about. Erwin
starts sniffing around, pointing out several used
syringes laying scattered about the floor.
Damn! We must have just missed them!
Meagan spots Lizzy's shirt sleeve on the floor.
Oh, my God -- she was here! This
is part of Lizzy's shirt! It's all
Erwin... we've got to find her!
We're too late! There's no way...
We could go after Freddy.
Erwin goes to a boiler, bends down and reaches way
up underneath. After fishing around for a moment,
he draws out a well-worn Mutant Ninja Turtles lunch
box. Inside -- a vile of liquid, several syringes,
and several pairs of cult shades.
We'll inject ourselves with Dream
Dope. It's a mild narcotic that
brings on a dreamlike state.
Meagan thinks about this for a moment, then nods her
Okay... let's do it!
Meagan... we don't do drugs! I mean,
what if one of us gets hooked or
We could turn out like him!
Jesse jerks a thumb toward Erwin.
Don't worry about it. We need you
wide awake anyway.
We're going to go under and try to
find Freddy. When we do, we'll grab
him and bring him here. Then you
kill him with this...
Erwin hands Jesse an old rusty revolver.
This rusty chunk of shit? What
good is this?
It's not the gun, it's what's in
it -- silver bullets blessed by a
Will that work?
Should. But then...
(finishes for him)
You don't make the rules... yeah,
What should we do?
Have a seat over there and make
yourselves comfortable. Roll up
your sleeves and put these on...
Erwin hands Meagan and Stormie each a pair of the
sunglasses with flashing red diodes in each lens.
Stormie puts hers on immediately and says:
What are they for?
It's how the cult keeps in constant
contact with Freddy. The little
lights flashing are a sustained
occular input that causes your brain
to resonate at approximately the
same frequency at which the dream
state is most likely to occur.
All of this went over Meagan's head. Stormie shrugs:
(to Meagan; excited)
Put 'em on -- they're really cool!
Meagan and Stormie sit down in easy chairs, rolling
up their sleeves. Erwin comes over and reclines the
chairs, giving each girl an injection. Then Erwin
takes a seat next to Meagan and injects himself. He
lets the syringe drop to the floor as he lowers his
It helps to hold hands if you want
to go together...
Meagan clasps hands with Erwin and Stormie. Jesse
watches with skepticism and concern. Erwin ushers
a final warning:
And remember... Freddy knows what
Then all three FALL THROUGH their chairs into...
INT. DREAMSPACE - CONTINUOUS ACTION
Meagan, Stormie, and Erwin falling through dreamspace
(fantastic digital effect tunnel), still holding hands.
The girls scream as Erwin smiles and yells:
WHAT A RUSH, HUH?!!
INT. ABANDONED BOILER ROOM - SAME TIME
Jesse watches over Meagan, Stormie, and Erwin -- all
asleep in their chairs.
INT. NIGHTMARE BOILER ROOM - NEXT MOMENT
Meagan, Stormie, and Erwin fall into a crazy night-
mare boiler room (visually reminiscent of the Freddy
pictures) with rusty catwalks, huge out-of-proportion
fixtures above and a sea of boiling water below. As
they get to their feet, Meagan hears Lizzy's voice:
Meagan... help me... please...
Meagan enters a shaft, following the sound when
suddenly, the shaft closes up behind her. Stormie
and Erwin try to find the opening again but can't.
Freddy's trying to split us up...
INT. ABANDONED BOILER ROOM - SAME TIME
Jesse is standing in front of an old, full length
mirror, practicing drawing the pistol. He pulls it
and pretends to fire, blowing imaginary smoke from
the muzzle as he says:
Okay, Freddy... there's a new sheriff
in Dreamland now.
INT. NIGHTMARE BOILER ROOM - NEXT MOMENT
Stormie and Erwin make their way through the creepy
boiler room, calling for Meagan. A strange shadow
stalks them -- it's Freddy. He drops down in front
of Erwin and Stormie.
Looking for some-body?
Freddy opens up his shirt to reveal a chest full of
lost souls. In the center -- Meagan. Stormie charges
Freddy, throwing her arms around him as she screams
I've got him! Wake us up! Wake
But Erwin is paralyzed with fear.
Don't just stand there! Wake us up!
Hmmmmm... I feel like seafood tonight.
Suddenly, Stormie's arms have become huge lobster
claws. She jerks away from Freddy, but too late --
Stormie starts to change into a giant lobster-woman!
Freddy smiles -- now he's wearing a chef's hat and
Stew on this, bitch!
Freddy knocks the lobster-woman over the side. She
falls into the boiling water far below -- KER-SPLASH!
HARD CUT TO:
INT. ABANDONED BOILER ROOM - NEXT INSTANT
Stormie wakes with a start, yelling:
Shoot him! Shoot him!
Jesse spins, aiming the pistol. But nothing is there.
INT. NIGHTMARE BOILER ROOM - SAME TIME
Freddy turns toward Erwin.
Well, well, well... if it isn't
my ol' pal, Erwin.
Erwin stares wide-eyed, frozen to the spot.
I've got something special in mind
Suddenly, Erwin reaches into his sleeve and pulls
out a pin. Freddy gawks -- surprised. Erwin pricks
HARD CUT TO:
INT. ABANDONED BOILER ROOM - NEXT INSTANT
Erwin wakes with a start. Stormie smacks him.
You didn't help me, you pussy!
I could've had him!
(smacks him some more)
You gutless... spinless... jelly
Jesse looks over to where Meagan is still sleeping.
INT. ELM STREET - DAY (DREAM)
Meagan comes down the sidewalk, still following
Meagan... help me... Meagan...
It leads her to her house. Meagan enters the front
INT. MEAGAN'S HOUSE - CONTINUOUS ACTION
Meagan sees her father is sitting at the kitchen
table, reading his paper. The headline reads:
He looks up and quietly shushes her.
Shuuuuu! I'm trying to be invisible...
And with that, Meagan's dad disappears. Only the
newspaper remains. Then Meagan hears Lizzy's VOICE
As she comes down the upstairs hallway, Meagan passes
her mother's room. The door is open a crack. Meagan
looks in and sees her mother putting an empty bottle
to her lips. The bottle sucks the life out of Meagan's
mom, who shrivels up into an ugly ol' prune face.
Meagan starts to help her mother when Lizzy's cry
for help draws her to...
INT. LIZZY'S ROOM - CONTINUOUS ACTION
Meagan enters. She sees Lizzy on her bed, under the
Meagan pulls back the covers to reveal that Lizzy is
pregnant, her naked, swollen stomach protruding from
her night gown. Something inside is trying to push
it's way out.
Lizzy screams. Meagan moves to help her sister when
Freddy's glove BURSTS OUT of Lizzy's stomach, stabbing
Meagan in the chest.
HARD CUT TO:
INT. ABANDONED BOILER ROOM - CONTINUOUS ACTION
Meagan wakes up suddenly. She looks up at Stormie,
Erwin, and Jesse standing over her.
Are you okay?
They help Meagan to her feet.
He got away... I had him and he
got away. Oh, God... Lizzy... I
Well, atleast you're not dead.
No... I'm not dead...
No... I'm not. But Freddy killed me!
He killed me, too. But look...
Stormie raises her shirt up to show Meagan she is
unharmed. Erwin sneaks a look and Stormie smacks him.
Meagan gets to her feet, asking:
Now that I think about it -- he's
killed me in all my nightmares. But
I'm not dead... what does it mean?
It means we've still got some time
left. Until his remains are host to
the Dream Demons -- Freddy can't
Hello. The Dream Demons...?
Freddy made a pact with Satan when
he died... so Satan bestowed upon
him the Dream Demons. They're the
source of Freddy's power to manipulate
our physical reality. Without them...
he's powerless -- nothing more than
a bad dream.
(off Jesse's cynical
Hey, like I said... I don't make
But we've still got a chance, right?
A chance to kill Freddy before he
gets back his power?
We already tried that. There's no
way for us to kill Freddy. He's too
clever. He knows how to get to us.
Then let's get somebody else. Some-
Yeah! We could hire somebody to
kill Freddy -- like a hit man!
You would have to hire a thousand
of them... or one really big guy
who isn't afraid of anything. No
fear. Nada. Then you got a shot.
Where are you going to find a hit
man? The yellow pages? In your
Jesse's last three words strike Meagan like a thunder-
bolt and she stammers out a name:
Jason Voorhees... that's brilliant!
The perfect dream warrior... no fear.
Sounds like our man!
Uh... excuse me, Einstein... but
isn't Jason Voorhees dead?
Seriously dead. Buried up by Crystal
Lake somewhere. But don't worry, I
know how to bring him back to life.
Somehow I just knew you would.
But that's not the problem. The
problem is control. Once we bring
Jason back from the dead... I'm not
one hundred percent sure he'll do
what we tell him.
Well, that's okay... as long as he
doesn't chop us all up.
Erwin rolls his eyes around -- uncertain.
Erwin... I'm trusting you on this,
so tell me the truth. Do you think
if we do this -- if we go and get
Jason and bring him back to life,
that he could kill Freddy?
No doubt about. Jason could wreck
Freddy on this side of the Dreamline.
But if Freddy has home court advan-
tage... I don't know. Too close to
call. The trick would be to get Jason
to enter a dream state, grab Freddy,
and drag him out to our reality.
I haven't got a choice. I've got to
(turns to Stormie &
I can't ask either of you to help
me do this... it's illegal, immoral,
Hey, we sisters have to stand
together, right? Where you lead --
I'll follow. Count me in.
Meagan embraces Stormie, then all three turn to Jesse.
He looks them over and sighs:
Let me get this straight... we're
going to go dig one dead maniac up
to fight another dead maniac?
That's about the size of it... and
I'd be doing you a disservice if I
said there weren't a modicum of risk
Meagan... I don't want to do this...
You don't have to, Jesse... it's not
your fight. I understand.
But I damn sure don't want you to
do it without me. Count me in.
Meagan hugs Jesse. Erwin tries to hug Stormie but
she pushes him away.
Look out Freddy... here we come.
EXT. SPRINGWOOD AUTO YARD - NIGHT
In his shack, listening to a small portable radio,
is the NIGHT WATCHMAN. His small DOG suddenly perks
up her ears and GROWLS low. The watchman turns down
What's matter, girl... you hear
Then the old man hears it, too... A low RUMBLE. Moving
The night watchman steps out of his shack and squints
into the darkness when a line of several hearses
approaches. The lead hearse pulls up to the shack and
the driver's window rolls down.
What's this? A funeral procession?
A Freddy cultist sticks his face out of the window
That's exactly what it is.
BANG! -- the cultist SHOOTS the old man right through
the head. The night watchman falls to the ground with
a lifeless THUD. The little dog starts BARKING
ferociously when another SHOT silences her as well.
Another cultist leaps out of the hearse and runs to
the gate, cutting the chain with a pair of bolt
cutters. He swings the gate open and the funeral
procession proceeds inside.
INT. SPRINGWOOD AUTO YARD - A SHORT TIME LATER
The cultists are standing around a small pit that two
cultists are carefully excavating in the center of the
wrecking yard. Inside the pit, the uncovered remains
of Freddy Krueger -- nothing more than a pile of
Lizzy is brought forward, held by a couple cultists,
and injected with dream dope as the needle is passed
around. She no longer struggles, accepting her fate
with droopy eyes.
LIZZY'S DREAM DOPE P.O.V. -- as she watches one of
the cultists reach down and put a rusty funnel into
Freddy's broken jawbone. Her vision gets blurry...
more surreal as another cult member steps forward
with the tupperware. He pours the dream demons into
CLOSE ON FREDDY'S REMAINS as the dream demons swim
around inside his skull. His bones start to bleed...
blood becoming arteries and veins... vessels becoming
muscle... muscle growing scarred flesh...
There is a FLASH from the pit. Then suddenly, Freddy
Krueger -- as you've known him, as you've loved him --
leaps out of the pit and cries:
Lizzy rolls her eyes up and faints. The cultists
FIRE their weapons into the air and cheer as the
building-high stacks of wrecked cars surrounding
them HONK their HORNS and FLASH their LIGHTS.
EXT. HIGHWAY - NIGHT
Headlights as Jesse's car zooms past a sign that
reads: CRYSTAL LAKE - 13 MILES.
We're almost there...
We should pull over and ask
If it doesn't offend the men...
ooops, sorry! There aren't any.
EXT. GAS STATION - NIGHT
Jesse pulls the car into an ol' run-down service
I don't think they're open.
It says, open all night.
Jesse HONKS the horn and yells:
Hey! Can we get some service out
I don't think there's anybody
Suddenly, a CRAZY OL' COOT appears on the opposite
side with a shotgun. Everyone in the car jumps.
CRAZY OL' COOT
What do you kids want?
We're looking for the old cemetery
that's supposed to be around here...
CRAZY OL' COOT
What do you want to know for?
We want to see it.
CRAZY OL' COOT
Ain't nothin' to see, girly...
'cept a bunch of ol' graves.
Look, mister... can you give us
directions or not?
The old man gives the occupants of the car a going
over with his one good eye, hesitating a moment over
Erwin, who scrunches down in the back seat, hiding
under a baseball cap.
CRAZY OL' COOT
You're not goin' up there to do
somethin' stupid, are you?
Stupid? Like what?
CRAZY OL' COOT
Like dig up Jason Voorhees --
Everyone in the car takes a sharp breath -- cold
busted! Then they start saying "No! No!" and shaking
their heads innocently in a big performance that
wouldn't fool a stick.

Jesus... why would anyone do that?
CRAZY OL' COOT
I dunno... but people do.

More times than I care to remember.
Well, we're just doing an article

Jesse is already standing on the gas, leaving the
ol' coot standing in a cloud of smoke and dust.
EXT. ETERNAL PEACE CEMETERY - NIGHT
Headlights skew across a rusty iron gateway -- ETERNAL
PEACE CEMETERY -- illuminating a sign: TRESPASSERS
WILL BE SHOT!
Meagan, Jesse, Stormie, and Erwin enter the shadowy
cemetery carrying lamps with shovels over their
shoulders. As they search through the cemetery,
What's the story on Jason Voorhees
Where have you been? Jason was that
guy who ran around in a hockey mask,
chopping up camp counselors, duh?
I knew that. What I mean was why?
It started a long time ago, back in
the fifties, when Jason drown at
Camp Crystal Lake. His mother went
berserk and started killing the
She got her head chopped off by one
of the girls she was trying to kill!
Right. And then Jason came back from
his watery grave to get revenge.
He came back from the grave?
Yeah. Chopped up a number of people
before they finally caught up to him.
What happened to him then?
They killed him.
How can you kill somebody who's
back from the grave?
Not very well apparently. Jason
keeps coming back to life and
chopping people up. It's a never
ending cycle of terror up here at
Crystal Lake -- a real problem.
Why does he keep coming back to
life and killing people?
They say he's looking for revenge
on the camp counselor who murdered
him as a child. Jason just happens
to go about it in the socially
unacceptable way of hacking through
every teenager he finds until he
gets the right one.
Here it is...
Erwin shines his light on Jason's grave.
ANGLE ON TOMBSTONE -- JASON VOORHEES. Born:1945.
Beneath the death date, crudely scratched into the
stone: 1981, 1982, 1984, 1985, 1986, 1988, etc.
Jesse and Erwin start digging.
ELLIPSIS -- cemetery statues watching them dig.
Stormie and Meagan take their turn. Then... Jesse
hits something solid.
Hands brush away the remaining dirt, exposing the
coffin below. Jesse takes a sharp breath and then
jams a crowbar under the lid -- forcing it open.
The casket lid cracks open a bit when -- SSSSSS! --
noxious gas escapes. Everyone covers their mouth
and nose, suppressing the urge to hurl.
Then roaches... hundreds of roaches.
Meagan and Stormie run off, screaming, batting at
their hair and clothing. Jesse rolls around on
the ground. Erwin sighs, plucks a roach off his
shirt, and calmly eats it.
EXT. ETERNAL PEACE CEMETERY - A SHORT TIME LATER
Meagan and Stormie stand just outside the grave,
holding the light and a can of bug spray. Their
hair is up, covered in plastic shower caps. Duct
tape around the cuffs of their pants. They aren't
taking anymore chances with bugs.
Jesse and Erwin open the casket. Everyone recoils
at the stench. Then they shine their lights inside
-- nothing but rotting chunks and a broken hockey
The kids putting several plastic trash bags full of
Jason into the trunk of Jesse's car and slamming
the lid closed.
Everyone piles into the car, exhausted.
In the back, Erwin picks his nose, unaware that
Stormie is watching him, her mouth gaping in horror.
Erwin becomes aware of Stormie's sickened scrutiny
and pulls out his finger, presenting it to Stormie.
Look... the boogerman!
Stormie slaps his hand away.
Get back, you nasty-ass bastard!
Ug! I thought I had seen the last
of those when my brother graduated
We just dug up a rotting corpse and
you're worried about a little snot.
Jesse looks over at Meagan, curled up in a ball
beside him. She purrs:
I'm exhausted... wake me when we
get back home.
Uhhh... better not fall asleep --
we've still got a lot of work to
do and Freddy's out there... waiting.
This news sobers everyone up immediately.
Well, that means we've all got to
I know! We'll sing a song!
Row! Row! Row your boat, gently down
the stream. Merrily, merrily, merrily,
merrily... life is but a dream. Come
Meagan leads the none-too-enthusiastic group in another
chorus of "Row Your Boat" as Jesse's car roars off into
EXT. LONELY ROAD - NIGHT
Meagan is leaning up against the door, murmuring softly
to herself as she drifts off to sleep:
...merrily, merrily, merrily,
merrily... life is but a dream.
In the back seat, Erwin is nuzzled between Stormie's
breasts, sucking his thumb. Both are fast asleep.
Jesse stares at the road ahead, his own eyelids
drooping. The car starts to weave.
ANGLE OUT WINDSHIELD -- we flash past Freddy holding
a cardboard sign by the side of the road: WILL KILL
Jesse shakes his head -- nah! He tries to concentrate
on the road, his eyelids falling once more.
Jesse's car zooms past a billboard. Behind the bill-
board -- a highway patrol car, a radar gun sticking
out of the driver's window.
CLOSE ON RADAR GUN as Jesse's car passes in the back-
ground, the red digits cascading up.
Freddy, now dressed as a highway patrolman, sits behind
the wheel. The radar gun's display is reflected in
his mirrored shades. It reads: KILL THEM.
Shouldn't dream and drive.
Freddy starts the car and pulls out, but what comes
out from behind the billboard isn't a patrol car --
it's Freddy's NIGHTMAREMOBILE -- big chrome pipes
ANGLE IN JESSE'S REARVIEW MIRROR as Jesse's eyelids
close and his head nods forward, revealing the night-
maremobile closing from behind fast.
The nightmaremobile runs up to the back of Jesse's
car just an inch from the bumper. Freddy moves one
of the dozen of levers on the dash.
CLOSE ON FREDDY'S HOOD ORNAMENT -- a small version
of Freddy's glove. It extends out towards the back
of Jesse's car, one of the tiny knives inserting into
the trunk lock and turning with a slight CLICK. The
trunk lid opens.
ANGLE INSIDE TRUNK -- the plastic bags with Jason's
remains are moving! Freddy works another level and
the tiny glove slits each bag. The various pieces
of Jason (hands, boots, intestines, etc.) crawl out
of the bag.
Looks like the cat's out of the
Freddy laughs as the tiny hand closes the trunk.
The nightmaremobile pulls out from behind Jesse's
car, BANGING into the rear quarter panel. WHAM! --
all four occupants of the car are jolted awake,
startled. Meagan looks out her window and sees the
nightmaremobile as it closes in again.
WHAM! SPARKS fly. Everyone screams. Freddy laughs
as he falls back for another shot. Meagan sees the
dozens of lost souls trapped in the back of the night-
maremobile, staring out at her through the back window.
A small yellow sign reads: LOST SOULS ON BOARD.
Jesse fights to keep the car on the road when suddenly,
the pieces of Jason ATTACK, BURSTING from behind the
back seat. One hand crawls up the back of the front
seat, leaping onto Jesse's throat. Jason's intestines
EXPLODE out of the backseat, SLITHERING and SNAKING
their way around Stormie and Erwin. One of Jason's
boots wiggles under the seat, making it's way towards
the gas peddle. The other boot is content to lay
under the back window and kick Erwin in the head.
As Meagan fights to pull Jason's hand of Jesse's face,
she looks down and sees Jason's other hand between
her legs. Meagan screams.
Jason's boot stomps on the gas and Jesse's car lurches
forward with the acceleration. The nightmaremobile
SLAMS into the side of Jesse's car again, causing it
to swerve violently from side to side.
Inside the nightmaremobile, Freddy pulls another lever.
CLOSE ON THE NIGHTMAREMOBILE FENDER as a panel opens
up and a circular sawblade arm extends out, CUTTING
into Jesse's car with a flurry of SPARKS. Inside,
Meagan screams as the saw blade just misses her leg,
CUTTING forward towards...
CLOSE ON JESSE'S FRONT TIRE as the saw blade CUTS into
it. The tire BLOWS and Jesse's car lurches off the
road, veering into a tree line.
CRASH! -- Jesse's car plows fender-first into a tree,
the HORN stuck on, BLARING.
Freddy laughs and kicks the nightmaremobile into
overdrive, ROARING OFF and disappearing with an
EXPLOSION of FIRE that wisps away in an instant.
In the distance -- an old farmhouse. The lights go
The passenger door opens and Meagan falls out onto the
ground, bleeding from a slight scalp wound. A rear
door opens and Stormie and Erwin spill out, locked in
embrace and not seriously hurt. Meagan staggers
around to the driver's side and opens the door. Jesse
is laying unconscious against the steering wheel.
Meagan pulls him off the wheel and the HORN stops.
Jesse is splattered with blood and his leg is a mess.
Jesse's hurt real bad... we've got
to get him to a doctor.
Through the farmhouse window, Erwin and Stormie see
the farmer on the phone.
Don't worry... an ambulance is on
Meagan cradles Jesse's head in her hands, crying:
Oh, God... Jesse...
Erwin goes to the trunk and opens it. Inside -- the
garbage bags with Jason's remains still inside --
untouched. Erwin goes to Meagan and says:
Meagan... listen to me... The cops
are on their way. If they find me
and Jason Voorhees in the trunk
there, we're finished.
Go... get out of here. Take Jason
and Stormie with you.
I'm staying with you.
Erwin grabs the trash bags out of the trunk and says:
I'll call you at the hospital.
Erwin takes off, disappearing with Jason's remains
into the night as SIRENS WAIL in the distance --
INT. HOSPITAL - JESSE'S ROOM - NIGHT
Jesse is laying in a hospital bed, his leg in a
special tent. Meagan and Stormie watch from the
doorway as a DOCTOR checks Jesse's vitals. As he
finishes, Meagan asks:
Is he going to be okay?
Yes. But he needs a lot of rest.
His leg is broken in four places
and he has four broken ribs and a
Meagan sits down next to Jesse, taking his hand.
Stormie turns to the doctor.
Hey doc, is there someplace I
could get us something to eat?
I'm afraid the cafeteria is closed.
There are some vending machines in
I'll be back to check on him in a
couple of hours.
The doctor exits.
I'll be right back... I'm goin' go
score us some munchies.
Meagan nods weakly. Stormie exits. Meagan lays her
head on Jesse's hand.
INT. HOSPITAL LOBBY - MOMENTS LATER
Stormie is getting several bags of munchies out of
the vending machine when she turns and sees Murdoch
at the information booth, flashing photos of Jesse
Stormie dashes for the staircase.
INT. HOSPITAL - JESSE'S ROOM - SAME TIME
Jesse and Meagan have fallen asleep. Jesse's heart
On the wall, an x-ray viewer flickers to life. Freddy
peeks out from behind the other side. He snickers and
ducks back down.
Suddenly, Freddy's hand reaches up from inside the bed
and grabs Jesse, pulling him down into the mattress.
Meagan wakes and sees this, screaming as Jesse grabs
onto the curtain.
CLOSE ON CURTAIN ROD as the curtain pulls free of
Jesse disappears into the bed, his screams echoing
Meagan looks under the bed -- nothing. She rises up
again, watching as Jesse's iv and electrode wires
are pulled down after him. Meagan grabs a handful
of tubes and wire and tries to pull Jesse back. But
the pull is too strong and Meagan goes into the
INT. OLD WEST SALOON (NIGHTMARE) - CONTINUOUS ACTION
Meagan falls to the floor of a dusty ol' saloon. As
she gets to her feet she sees Jesse's iv tubes running
along the floor and out the door. Meagan follows
them to the saloon door, where she stops and looks
EXT. OLD WEST STREET (NIGHTMARE) - CONTINUOUS ACTION
Standing in the middle of the street is Jesse, dressed
in a cowboy sheriff's outfit complete with hat, badge,
Meagan calls to him from the saloon door.
But Jesse can't hear her. He's too busy shaking with
fear... staring at something coming down the street.
It's Freddy. Dressed in a Black Bart cowboy outfit.
(ala John Wayne)
Okay, Sheriff... This nightmare
ain't big enough for the two of
Trembling with fear, Jesse fumbles for his pistol.
He pulls it out and FIRES. Freddy laughs. Jesse
FIRES again. Freddy just laughs. Jesse FIRES again
and again and again and Freddy just laughs and laughs
and laughs. From the saloon, Meagan screams:
Jesse! Wake up! Wake up!!
Freddy looks over at her, annoyed.
Three's a crowd, bitch! Why don't
you just go get [BEEP]
INT. HOSPITAL - JESSE'S ROOM - CONTINUOUS ACTION
The SOUND of Jesse's heart monitor BEEPING erratically
wakes Meagan with a start. She tries to wake Jesse.
Jesse, wake up! WAKE UP!!
INT. OLD WEST STREET (NIGHTMARE) - SAME TIME
Jesse keeps FIRING at Freddy... until his gun CLICKS
empty. Freddy smiles and pulls out the biggest Goddamn
gun you ever saw and says:
Go ahead... make my dream!
HARD CUT TO:
INT. HOSPITAL - JESSE'S ROOM - NEXT INSTANT
Jesse's stomach EXPLODES with BLOOD -- splattering
Meagan. Jesse's heart monitor BEEPS continuously --
flat line. Jesse is dead.
A NURSE shows up to answer the alarm. She sees
Meagan standing over Jesse's body, covered in blood,
Stormie enters the room a half-second later and
Freddy killed Jesse...
Stormie reaches in and grabs Meagan, pulling her out
of the room.
INT. HOSPITAL - HALLWAY - CONTINUOUS ACTION
Stormie drags a shell-shocked Meagan down the hall,
the screams of the nurse fading into the distance.
Jesus... get a grip, lady. You'd
think a nurse in a hospital would
have seen a dead body before.
Just then, Stormie spots Murdoch and his men getting
off the elevator. They hear the nurse's screams and
come running towards Jesse's room. Stormie pulls
Meagan behind the nurse's station just as Murdoch
and company go thundering past.
Then a VOICE on the P.A. says:
Attention. Would Meagan or Stormie
please pick up the white paging
phone for a message?
Stormie and Meagan exchange worrisome looks. The
announcement repeats itself again. Then again.
Stormie can't stand it anymore -- she stands up
and picks up the white paging phone.
This is Stormie...
Murdoch and his men come running past the nurse's
station again. Stormie turns her back to them but
Murdoch goes back to the nurse's station, asking:
Did you see a couple of girls go
by here a moment ago?
Stormie gestures to the elevators.
Just missed 'em.
Murdoch nods a quick thanks and takes off with his
men right behind. Stormie exhales a giant sigh of
relief as the HOSPITAL OPERATOR says:
The message is from Erwin... he
says to meet him at the side
entrance in two minutes.
Stormie hangs up and grabs Meagan, running for the
EXT. HOSPITAL - NIGHT - MOMENTS LATER
Stormie drags Meagan out of the hospital just as
Erwin pulls up in an old battered pick-up truck.
He throws open the door and Stormie pushes Meagan
inside, climbing in after her and asking:
Where'd you get the truck?
Same place I've got Jason hid.
And where's that?
A place where no one ever goes.
Stormie closes the door and the pick-up truck ROARS
out of the parking lot.
EXT. CAMP CRYSTAL LAKE - NIGHT
The pick-up truck's headlights skew across a weather-
worn sign, peppered with bullet holes: CAMP CRYSTAL LAKE
Erwin drives the truck through the deserted camp,
past the cabins, down towards the lake. He stops a
short distance away from the pier and the three of
them climb out.
Meagan is still in shock, letting Stormie guide her
as Erwin leads them down the pier to a small diving
platform tied up to the end.
What'd you do -- take him for a
Erwin jumps down on the diving platform. In the center,
a large form is covered by a tarp. Erwin helps Stormie
down onto the platform, leaving Meagan standing on the
pier. She looks out over the lake -- eyes vacant.
Erwin moves close to Stormie and, gesturing to Meagan,
Is she going to be alright?
I don't know. She's pretty fucked
up. God, I don't know why I'm not...
You're a strong woman.
What's that supposed to mean?
Uhhh... nothing. I didn't mean
Stormie gestures to the tarp.
Is this him?
(whips back tarp)
Meet the new and improved Jason.
ANGLE ON JASON laying spread eagle on the diving
platform, cocooned in chicken wire with dozens of
coiled leads trailing off into the water. Erwin has
done a good job of sewing Jason back together with
barbed wire and fishing line. His arms and legs have
been reinforced with steel braces and even Jason's
mask has been repaired, stitched down the middle with
bailing wire. Jason looks nineties... and butch.
Why'd you put that stupid mask
Take a look...
Stormie bends down and takes a peek under the mask
and quickly replaces it.
Not exactly a beauty queen entry,
So what do we do now -- sing an Ozzy
Osbourne song backwards or something?
I'm afraid it's not that simple...
I thought you said you knew how to
bring him back to life?
I do! But when I was putting him
back together, I noticed something
Stormie thinks about this for a second, then:
Awwww, he won't be needing that...
I mean, what girl would let him
put his rotten ol'...
(cuts her off)
No-no! Not that! It's his heart...
Well... does it really matter?
Can't you use an aquarium pump or
No... he has to have a heart. A
human heart. A good one.
Meagan speaks for the first time:
I know where we can get a heart...
A good one.
EXT. MORGUE - PARKING LOT - NIGHT
A sign reads: CITY MORGUE. Through the front window
a GUARD can be seen sitting at the reception desk.
Erwin, Stormie, and Meagan watch him from the pick-up,
parked a safe distance away.
That guard in there might pose a
Do you think you and Stormie could
keep him occupied for a few minutes?
Erwin and Stormie exchange looks, then shrug -- why
Okay... let's do it.
A few moments later, the guard looks up as the pick-
up swerves wildly into the parking lot. He gets up
and goes to the glass door, peering out.
ANGLE THROUGH GLASS DOOR as Stormie and Erwin start
making out -- hot and heavy.
INT. MORGUE - NIGHT
Meagan BREAKS a small window near the ceiling. She
crawls onto the top of the cabinet and then drops
to the floor. She shines her flashlight around the
dark laboratory, illuminating anatomy charts, jars
full of organs, etc.
Crossing to the lockers, Meagan tentatively opens
one of the drawers and shines her light inside --
ug! Wrong guy. She opens the next drawer -- ick!
Meagan opens a third drawer -- Jesse. Her lip starts
to quiver as she caresses his face.
EXT. MORGUE - PARKING LOT - SAME TIME
At the glass door, the guard is watching the action
in the parking lot, his breath fogging the window.
He wipes the glass clean with his sleeve to get a
Inside the truck, Stormie and Erwin wrestle around.
Hey! Watch that!
I'm just trying to make it look real.
Just keep your hands above the bra,
The windows are starting to steam up.
INT. MORGUE - SAME TIME
Meagan pulls on a labcoat and puts on a pair of rubber
gloves. Then she opens a drawer full of shiny instru-
ments (saws, rib cutters, etc.) and selects a large

sheet, exposing his chest. Meagan raises the knife
far above her head.
Forgive me, Jesse...
Meagan plunges the knife into Jesse's chest with a
EXT. MORGUE - PARKING LOT - SAME TIME
The windows of the pick-up are now badly fogged,
obscuring the guard's view. He licks his lips,
deciding to investigate closer. The guard unlocks
the front door and starts toward Stormie and Erwin.
They spot him coming and break their embrace. In
another moment, the pick-up is PEELING out of the
parking lot. The guard watches the truck go, shakes
his head, and goes back inside to start his rounds.
Up the street, parked with the lights off in the night
shade of a large tree, Stormie and Erwin watch as the
guard starts down the glass enclosed hallway towards
He's head right for her! Do some-
Erwin panics for a moment, then HONKS the HORN.
INT. MORGUE - NEXT MOMENT
Meagan is trying to pull Jesse's heart out of his
chest but it just won't come, some vein or muscle
fiber keeps pulling it back. She jumps at the HORN,
then starts pulling harder.
In the hallway just outside, the guard hears the HORN
and stops. He starts back for the front, when suddenly
the HORN stops.
Meagan hacks at the last bits of stringy goo that cling
to Jesse's heart. As the last strand goes, Meagan
tumbles backwards to the floor with a loud THUD.
The guard hears that and turns back towards the morgue,
drawing his gun. He tip-toes to the door and carefully
unlocks it, leaving his keys in the lock. Taking a
two-handed Weaver stance, the guard raises his foot
and kicks the door.
WHACK! -- the door flies open and the guard leaps
inside like Marshall Dillon, snapping on the lights.
He gasps, eyes going wide as he scans the room. One
of the drawers is open... the stiff's chest has got
a huge hole in it... blood spattered everywhere...

Meagan rolls out of the window just as the guard FIRES.
The unbroken section of the window SHATTERS. The guard
curses and races for the...
EXT. MORGUE - SECONDS LATER
The guard comes running out just in time to see Meagan
close the passenger door and the truck ROAR away. He
shrinks, dejected -- no way to catch them now. The
guard heads back inside to report this mess and finds
that the door has closed and locked behind him.

The S.W.A.T. commander comes up to Murdoch.
Just got a call on the radio --
three juveniles just broke into the
morgue -- one male, two female. The
guard is pretty sure the male is in
the Freddy cult -- burnt face.
CRAZY OL' COOT
Sounds like the same kids I saw.
Did the guard say what they took?
Yeah... that murdered kid, Jesse --
they carved his heart out.
They got away in a pick-up -- the
guard didn't get the license. You
want me to put out an A.P.B.?
No... that won't be necessary. I
know just where they're going, and
just what they're up to. And this
time... I'll be ready.
EXT. CAMP CRYSTAL LAKE - NIGHT
Meagan sits on the end of the pier, watching silently
as Erwin sews Jesse's heart into Jason's chest using
dental floss. Stormie comes up behind her and puts
her jacket around Meagan's shoulders, sits down beside
her and says:
You've got to quit blaming your-
self for what happened to Jesse...
it wasn't your fault.
He didn't want to come with us...
but he did anyway. He did it for me.
I'm not sorry I came... I don't
think Jesse would be, either.
I just can't believe he's dead. I
keep thinking he'll show up any
Well, that just about does it...
Erwin finishes sewing up Jason and climbs back onto
the pier, cutting the diving platform free. He kicks
it off and it floats out into the lake, drifting free.
Then Erwin herds the girls down the shore, leading
them over to where a short trench has been dug leading
from the water's edge.
In the bottom of the trench -- an uncovered power
As you can see, I've excavated the
power cable that runs across the
bottom of Crystal Lake. I've cut
away the insulation, exposing a
patch of cable right near the water's
Erwin picks up a nearby bucket of water and sets it
at the head of the trench.
Now when I kick this over, the water
will wash down the trench and bridge
an eletrical gap between the cable
and the lake. There's plenty of
voltage, so it should work.
So you kick the bucket and Jason
Okay, keep your fingers crossed...
Erwin kicks the bucket over. The water washes down
the trench, over the cable, and -- POW! Z-Z-Z-ZAP!
A huge SPARK HITS EXPLODES. Then the lake begins to
glow and the water begins to churn. Erwin and the
girls jump back as ELECTRICITY ARCS from the lake,
engulfing the diving platform.
The ARCS of ELECTRICITY leap from the chicken wire
onto Jason's body, his massive frame convulsing.
CLOSE ON HOCKEY MASK as we PUSH IN -- the electricity
spirals down into the eye hole like water running
down a drain.
CLOSE ON JASON'S EYE as it opens! We dive into the
eye and take a fantastic dream/time travel to...
OPTICAL TRANSITION TO:
EXT. VOORHEES CABIN - 1953 - DAY
CLOSE ON MASK (1950's version of a hockey mask)
reflected in the water. A young hand reaches up and
pulls off the mask, revealing the disfigured boy
beneath. This is JASON -- AGE 9.
JASON'S FATHER comes to the doorway of their run-
down cabin in dirty longjohns, holding a bottle of
rye. He bellows:
Jason! Git your ass over here!
Jason jumps at his father's voice, hesitates only
slightly, then runs toward him, stopping abruptly
several paces away.
What did I teach you, boy? Don't
ever take your mask off out in
public. I don't want nobody to see
that ugly mug of yours.
Jason stands, looking at his bare feet. His father
smacks him upside the head, shoving him towards the
Go git in the woodshed.
Jason's pace slows as he enters the dark shed -- he
knows what's coming next.
Drop them overalls and lay over
Jason slowly complies as his father loosens his belt.
Suddenly, JASON'S MOTHER is just outside the doorway,
Jason! Come here!
Jason gives his father a sideways glance, then scurries
towards his mother.
What are you doing woman?
Jason's mother gives him a mason jar stuffed with
dollars and change.
I saved up some money... I want
you to take and go on up to that
summer camp just up the road. Tell
the man you want to stay there.
Just what the hell do you think
you're doing, bitch?!
I'm sending him away for a few weeks.
You ain't sending him nowhere.
Bring me that money, boy!
Jason holds his ground for a second, unsure whom to
obey, when his mother shoos him away.
Go on now... go!
Jason takes off up the road. His father sneers:
Goin' ag'in me? I'll take you to
the shed, woman!
Jason's mother pulls a knife from her apron.
You ain't ever taking anyone to
the shed ever again.
Jason's mother charges at her husband, shoving him
back into the shed with the knife. Jason looks back.
Through the open window he sees his mother's arm
coming down repeatedly with the knife, his father's
arms flailing helplessly. Then both disappear from
view. After a moment his mother appears in the door-
way, spattered with blood. She smiles and waves to
Go on, son... have a good time!
Mommy will come and git you some
Jason turns and runs to...
EXT. CAMP CRYSTAL LAKE - 1953 - DAY
Wearing his mask, Jason walks through the entrance
to the camp with his jar of money.
In the office, the HEAD COUNSELOR takes his money
and shakes his hand.
Welcome aboard, son! I'm sure
you'll have a great time!
The other KIDS dance around Jason, taunting him...
laughing at him... pointing and teasing... Jason
breaks away, running towards the pier.
Jason sits at the end of the pier, looking at his own
reflection. He removes the mask and watches as the
distortions in the water make his face look normal.
Someone comes up behind Jason slowly. Jason isn't
aware of their presence until a shadowy reflection
appears behind his own. Jason turns to see who when
he is suddenly pushed into the lake.
Jason splashes to the surface, sputtering, trying to
stay afloat. A hand pushes his head back under the
JASON'S UNDERWATER P.O.V. -- a distorted image of
whoever is holding him under.
Jason thrusts out his arms, fighting to get back to
the surface... fighting just to see who is killing
him before he dies.

EXT. CAMP CRYSTAL LAKE - NIGHT
Jason comes alive, thrashing around on the diving dock,
the electricity all over him like a spider web. On
shore, Erwin and the girls gasp.
Holy shit! It worked!
Meagan and Stormie bounce, excitedly. But something
is wrong. Jason thrashes around on the dock, unable
to break the crisscross of high voltage chicken wire.
It's kill him! Shut it off! Shut
Shut it off... it suddenly occurs
to me that I hadn't really planned
for that contingency.
Just don't stand there! Do something!
But all Erwin can do is scratch his head. Meagan
rushes to the shore line and screams out over the lake:
Jason! JASON! You've got to get up!
Do you hear me? Get up!
Jason clenches his meaty fists and SLAMS them down
against the diving dock. SMASHING it to bits. Water
rushes over him and -- ZZZZT! KA-POW!
A power transformer on shore EXPLODES, causing Meagan
and her friends to cringe. When they look back, the
electrical light show fades away, leaving nothing but
smoke and floating debris. Meagan and Stormie turn to
Erwin, who shrugs shyly and says:
Well... it's off now.
Meagan and Stormie begin a verbal barrage that would
shrink any man to pus... much less Erwin. He cowers
between them, offering quick excuses and humble
All three are so wrapped up in laying blame that they
never notice Jason's shadowy figure as it rises from
Then they do see him... scream and run. Jason charges
after the kids in his familiar "unstoppable killer"
Erwin ducks inside the tool shed as Meagan and Stormie
dash past. He closes the door behind him and squirms
out a tiny window just as Jason kicks open the door
and steps inside. Erwin races around to the front
and closes the door. He fastens the latch and padlock,
then calls to the girls:
Hey! Come back! I've got him locked
up in the tool shed!
Just then, the SOUND of a CHAINSAW as the blade RIPS
through the tool shed door. Erwin screams like a
girl and runs away.
INT. MAIN CABIN - CONTINUOUS ACTION
Meagan and Stormie run into the main room. Stormie
spots a phone and goes to it, dialing frantically.
Who are you calling?!
The cops! Who else?!
Are you kidding?! They'll lock us
up and throw away the key!
Fine by me!
(clicks the receiver)
Damnit! It's dead!
Just then, Erwin bursts into the cabin, slamming
the door shut behind him.
He's right behind me!
Stormie and Meagan look out the window -- sure enough,
Jason is storming towards them, holding the chainsaw.
You're the one who brought him
back to life!
Well, do something!
Erwin screams and runs for the closet, hiding inside.
Oh, some hero!
Just then, the chainsaw RIPS through the front door.
Meagan and Stormie scream and follow Erwin into the
closet, closing themselves inside.
They cower in the closet, listening... for a long
moment... nothing but the sound of their heavy
Then, with the RIPPING of WOOD, Jason chainsaws the
closet door -- knocking it to the floor. Erwin draws
out his pin and starts stabbing himself in the finger.
Jason charges forward, when Meagan suddenly stands
up in front of him and yells:
To everyone's shock... Jason does.
Now... just stop! We're the ones
that brought you back to life.
And you have no right to kill us
with that chainsaw! In fact... you
That's right! She gave you her
boyfriend's heart, you know!
Jason cocks his massive head like a perplexed pup.
Look! Here's his picture...
Meagan takes off the necklace that Jesse gave her and
opens the locket. She shows Jason the photo of Jesse
inside. Jason drops the chainsaw and takes the locket
in his humongous hands, gently touching the photo of
Jesse with a meaty finger.
Now, I know that you've been through
a lot. And I know that you're pissed
off about being murdered and all.
I know I would be!
But if you help us kill Freddy
Krueger... I promise to help you
find the little bastard that
killed you. What do you say? Have
we got a deal?
Meagan sticks out her hand to shake. Jason stares at
it, looks back at the locket, then to Meagan. Finally,
he reaches out his huge hand for Meagan's when...
Brilliant, blinding white light blazes through the
windows, freezing everyone to the spot. Anxious to
get out of the closet with Jason, Erwin crawls across
the floor and peeks out over the window sill.
ANGLE OUT WINDOW -- a dozen police cars shine their
lights towards the cabin, two dozen COPS aim their
weapons. In the middle of this impressive show of
force is Murdoch. He raises a bullhorn to his lips.
You in there! This is Captain Renton
Murdoch -- State Trooper! I am
ordering you to come out with your
hands up! I'll give you until the
count of three...
Meagan turns to Jason, shoving him back into the
Jason, you have to hide! Stay in
here and don't come out until we
tell you. Stormie... help me!
Stormie helps Meagan stuff Jason into the closet,
closing the door. Then they quickly smooth down
their hair and clothes, moving towards the door.
EXT. CAMP CRYSTAL LAKE - NEXT SECOND
Meagan, Stormie, and Erwin come out with their hands
raised high above their heads. As they walk towards
the police cars, several of the S.W.A.T. team moves
in and arrests them. As they are handcuffed and
searched, Murdoch goes on the bullhorn again:
Alright... anybody else left in
there had better say their prayers!
There's no one else inside.
Is that a fact?
Okay... you had your chance!
Suddenly, one of the cops points towards the cabin
All heads turn towards the cabin, where Jason's
massive frame is filling the doorway.
Holy Mary, mother of God... would
you look at the size of that guy?
I knew it!
All the cops level their weapons at Jason when Murdoch
suddenly steps forward, gesturing for everyone to get
Stand back! I'll handle this.
Murdoch takes a few steps towards the cabin and sneers:
Jason raises the chainsaw -- he remembers Murdoch too.
Murdoch goes for his gun, but instead of bringing out
a pistol, he holds a laser designator. Murdoch fires.
A big red dot appears on Jason's chest. Jason looks
down at it like it was a harmless bug. He looks back
up at Murdoch, who raises a radio to his lips and says:
Let her go.
EXT. 60,000 FEET ABOVE CRYSTAL LAKE - NEXT SECOND
A military jet flying above drops it's payload -- a
laser-guided napalm bomb.
EXT. CAMP CRYSTAL LAKE - SAME TIME
A slight WHISTLE sound grows in the skies above Camp
Crystal Lake. Jason looks up.
SMART BOMB P.O.V. as it drops down on Jason -- homing
in on the laser dot on his chest.
BA-BOOM! -- Camp Crystal Lake EXPLODES in flames.
All the cops take cover as FIRE RAINS DOWN on them.
Only Murdoch stands his ground, his arms outstretched
as he embraces the terrible sight.
That'll teach you to fuck with the
A cop behind him says:
Uhh, sir... your hat's on fire.
Murdoch looks up -- sure enough, his Smokey Bear hat
is burning above the brim.
Meagan watches as Camp Crystal Lake is consume in
flames, her last hope of saving Lizzy -- gone. Then
a cop shoves her into a police car with Stormie.
Erwin is put into another car and the three exchange
worrisome looks through the windows just before the
cars pull away.
As the cops start to pull out, one of them notices
something moving amidst the flames -- a large BURNING
form, walking towards the lake. As it stumbles out
onto the pier, the cop turns to his partner and says:
Hey... do you see that?
But just then, the form falls through the BURNING
pier, SPLASHING into the water below. The partner
looks, sees nothing, and shrugs.
I thought I saw something...
He shrugs it off and exits after his partner.
Murdoch, his hat still smoking a little, surveys the
sight one last time before climbing into his patrol
car and driving away.
INT. POLICE STATION - CELLBLOCK - NIGHT
A cell door SLAMS in front of Stormie's face. A cell
door SLAMS in front of Meagan's face. Both girls are
behind bars, separated by a cement wall. The hefty
female DEPUTY in charge of the cellblock goes back to
Both girls stand in their cells next to eachother,
watching as the deputy goes back to her desk and
begins to devour three combo-burritos.
We've got to try and stay awake.
Getting something to eat might help.
(calls to Deputy)
It's Deputy Miller.
Excuse me, Deputy Miller but could
we have something to eat?
I thought you psychos only ate
And I thought you pigs only ate
Don't make me come back there.
(low; to Meagan)
Cow! I hope she chokes on her three
Meagan leans up against the wall, sliding down to
the floor in defeat.
What am I going to do? I'll never
be able to find Lizzy now.
You should be worrying about your-
self... I know I am.
Stormie plops down on her cot.
I bet you're sorry you came with
Nah... what are best friends for?
Afterall, you stuck by me through
all my crazy phases, I figure I
owe you one big crazy phase, right?
That's for being my best friend,
Just then, Deputy Miller steps in front of Meagan's
cell, unlocking it.
Come on, Meagan.
Where are we going?
Your parents are here.
INT. POLICE STATION - NIGHT - MOMENTS LATER
Deputy Miller brings Meagan out of the cellblock,
where her mom and dad are waiting with Captain Murdoch.
Meagan's mom rushes up and hugs Meagan.
Oh, Meagan... are you alright?
Let me look at you...
I'm okay, mom.
Your mother's been worried sick,
Meagan. So have I.
Meagan stands handcuffed, her hair mussed, her clothes
bloody and soiled.
Sorry. Today has been a bitch.
INT. CELLBLOCK - SAME TIME
The deputy is so busy munching down on her burritos
that she doesn't notice the strange shadow that
passes behind her.
The shadow moves down the cellblock, accompanied by
a slight SCRAPING. Freddy's glove materializes,
raking the knives along the metal cross bars. Freddy
stops at Stormie's cell, looking inside.
Stormie is fast asleep.
Freddy walks into Stormie's cell, passing right through
the bars. Suddenly, Stormie wakes and, seeing Freddy,
jumps to her feet and screams.
Help! Help! Freddy's here! He's here!
But the deputy at the end of the cellblock doesn't
respond, finishing off the rest of the burrito and
licking her meaty fingers clean. Freddy puts his
forefinger knife to his lips and shushes Stormie,
pointing to her cot. Stormie looks over and sees her-
Oh, shit! I'm still asleep!
She looks up at Freddy, who smiles and says:
You know what they say... when you
sleep -- you die!
Freddy flashes the glove of knives.
INT. POLICE STATION - NEXT MOMENT
Meagan, Captain Murdoch here said
you helped one of those cultists
escape from a hospital?
A mental hospital.
And he said you desecrated a cemetery
and some other really terrible things.
Tell me you had nothing to do with
it. Tell me there's some mistake...?
There's no mistake.
What did you do with Erwin?
Your boyfriend is headed back to the
looney bin where he belongs. But
don't worry, you'll be seeing him
soon enough... at the arraignment.
INT. CELLBLOCK - SAME TIME
Freddy taunts Stormie as the circle around in the cell
by slicing off his fingers, squirting green slime.
Stormie winces a little but keeps her distance and cool.
You don't scare me, Freddy! Thanks
to my various phases and many hours
of watching violent televison, I
have become immune to violence. Seen
it all and done it all! Nothing you
do can gross me out -- so why don't
you give it your best shot, bitch!
Then maybe I'll just CUT to the chase!
Freddy swings the glove but Stormie ducks, keeping her
I'm warning you, Freddy... my father
is a drill sergeant in the Marine
Corps and he taught me just how to
defend myself against slimy bastards
Oh I'm so scared, honey. Come on!
Hit me! Punch me right in the nose!
I dare you!
Freddy juts out his chin, gesturing for Stormie to
take a punch. Stormie throws a right and pops Freddy
right in the nose.
Stormie smiles but that soon fades as she realizes her
fist is stuck in Freddy's nose. Freddy takes in a
breath and Stormie's arm is sucked up past the elbow.
Freddy takes a deep breath and snorts Stormie right
up his nose, her screams turning into a faint BUZZ.
Now that's what I call getting a
INT. FREDDY'S NOSTRIL CAVERN - NEXT SECOND
Now the size of a flea, Stormie is clinging to one
of hundreds of pointed tree trunks jutting out from
the circular walls -- Freddy's nose hairs. Stuck in
those humongous hairs are clumps of icky gunk --
Sitting next to Stormie, a particularly large and
rotund booger clump opens its eyes and says (in the
distorted voice of Harry Manfredini):
Hi there! I'm the Boogerman! Heh-
heh... get it?
Stormie screams, backing up into the "trees", trying
to put distance between herself and Boogerman.
Aww, don't go... we can play "Star
Wars". You can be Princess Leia and
I'll be Jabba the Hutt!
Boogerman licks his fat, nasty lips with a slimy green
tongue -- he does kinda look like Jabba. Stormie

Meagan is getting more and more agitated.
We're wasting time! We've got to

Meagan's parents stare at their daughter with confused,

Okay, I think we've heard enough of
this crap. Take her back to the
A couple of DEPUTIES grab Meagan. She throws them off
and they grab her again, roughly. Meagan's parents
watch in pain and horror as the deputies drag their
daughter back to her cell, kicking and screaming.
Dad! Mom! Don't let them lock me up!
I have to save Lizzy!
Oh, Meagan... you're sick. You don't
even realize what you've done.
I did what I had to do to try and
Yeah, including murdering your boy-
friend and cutting his heart out.
Liar! Freddy killed Jesse! He was
already dead when I cut his heart
Meagan's mom and dad gasp, recoiling with horror.
Goddamnit, you don't understand!
Freddy lives! FREDDY LIVES!!!
Meagan's raving grows faint as she disappears into
the cellblock. Murdoch pulls Meagan's dad aside.
I know how you must feel... I had
a dog once. I loved that dog. I
treated her like my own daughter.
We went camping, picnics in the
park... I even had a little stocking
for her nailed up on the mantle for
Christmas. Then one day, she bit
me... so I had to blow her brains
God, I loved that dog.
INT. STORMIE'S CELL & NOSTRIL CAVERN - SAME TIME
Freddy starts to dig in his nose with his forefinger
A giant knife blade comes charging up the nostril
cavern, sending Stormie into hysterics.
Uh-oh, Freddy's picking his nose
again -- gotta go!
Boogerman starts lumbering up into the back of the
nostril cavern. Stormie watches the massive knife
blade as it comes right for her, then at the last
possible second she starts climbing after Boogerman.
She pushes past the disgusting blob of goo, racing
Well, excuse me!
INSERT -- Freddy pushes the knife way far back into
The giant knife spears Boogerman in the back, running
him through and spilling his "Boogerman" guts out his
front. Stormie gives a little squeal as Boogerman is
pulled out, kicking and screaming.
Freddy withdraws the knife from his nose, peering
closely at the tiny Boogerman impaled on the end. He
twists his mouth in utter disdain and flicks Booger-
man across the cell.
Boogerman screams as he flies across vast space, smack-
ing into the far wall with a giant SPLAT! Boogerman
flattens outwards into a thin pancake of Boogerman goo,
his nasty head still alive in the center.
Freddy reaches through the bars of the cell, his arm
extending out in a grotesque fashion all the way to
the deputy's desk. He feels around on the table until
he touches the pepper shaker, drawing it back into
Freddy sprinkles a small amount of pepper into his
right palm and breathes it in deeply -- the specks
of pepper becoming rocks that pelt Stormie as she
clings to life deep inside the nostril.
Freddy's face begins to distort, his nose wrinkling
up -- the beginnings of a sneeze.
Ahhh... ahhh... ahhh--CHOO!
Micro-Stormie comes blasting out of Freddy's nose
with globules of snot. She flies across the massive
cell, headed directly for the splattered Boogerman,
screaming her head off.
Boogerman sees Stormie racing towards him and he
HARD CUT TO:
INT. POLICE STATION - CELLBLOCK - NEXT INSTANT
As the deputy brings Meagan back to her cell they
hear a loud SPLAT!
The deputy pushes Meagan back as she moves forward
cautiously, glancing around the wall into Stormie's
cell... then promptly puking combo burrito. Meagan
runs up and looks. The wall to Stormie's cell is
splattered with blood and bits.
Meagan falls to her knees, sobbing as more DEPUTIES
come running into the cellblock, answering the
deputy's puke-choked scream.
Oh, God... what have I done? What
have I done?!
We BOOM OUT of this chaos and go to...
EXT. LONELY ROAD - NIGHT
An ambulance races along the road with it's emergency
lights flashing. In back Erwin lays strapped to a
gurney. Up front sit a DRIVER and an ATTENDANT. They
chat disparagingly about the freak in the back, when
suddenly a large form appears in the road just ahead.
The driver slams on the brakes and the wheels lock up
with a terrible SQUEAL.
WHUMP! -- the ambulance plows into the form, knocking
it some fifty feet down the road. The driver and the
attendant stare out of the cracked windshield in shock.
Finally, the driver turns to the attendant and says:
I'll go check it out. You stay here.
The driver gets out and goes to the form laying in the
road. He bends down to examine the charred, mammoth
carcass when a fist flies up, smacking the driver in
the face. He falls to the ground, unconscious.
The corpse sits up in the glare from the headlights --
it's Jason! Burnt and blackened but ready for action!
He starts towards the ambulance.
The attendant gets out and pulls his service revolver,
emptying into Jason's chest. Jason recoils only
slightly as BULLET HITS BURST his coveralls, then he
grabs the attendant by the head as he snaps the empty
pistol in panic. Jason slams the attendant's face
into the side of the ambulance.
In the back of the ambulance, a terror-stricken Erwin
watches as a face shaped dent appears in the wall with
a sickening WRENCHING of METAL and FLESH. Then...
RIP! -- Jason pulls off the back door of the ambulance
and climbs inside, the shocks bottoming out under his
weight. He reaches out for Erwin, who closes his
eyes... waiting for the inevitable.
After a second, Erwin opens an eye. Jason is standing
over him, hand outstretched. In his big, burnt palm
-- Meagan's necklace. Erwin looks from the necklace
to Jason. Jason thrusts out his hand impatiently.
You... want me to tell you where
Again with the thrusting.
Well why didn't you say so?! Jesus,
for a minute there I thought you
were going to kill me.
You're not, are you?
Jason shakes his palm at Erwin yet a third time.
Okay... okay! I'll take you right
to her. Could you help me out of
Jason reaches over and yanks out the gurney straps.
Erwin exits out the back with Jason following close
behind. Erwin climbs in behind the wheel, saying:
Jason pushes Erwin aside so roughly that he slams into
the passenger side door.
Okay... you drive.
As Jason climbs into the driver's seat, a CHIME goes
off as a female COMPUTER VOICE in a pleasant tone says:
Fasten your safety belt, please.
Erwin fastens his. Jason watches him and pulls the
safety belt across his massive chest -- it won't reach.
Jason pulls harder, ripping the belt out of the bolts.
The CHIME goes crazy.
Fasten your safety belt, please...
Fasten your safety belt, please...
Jason SMASHES the dashboard with his fist, silencing
the voice and chime. He turns suddenly to Erwin as if
to say, "Yeah?! What about it?" Erwin shrugs nervously:
Fuck the bitch. Let's roll!
With tires SQUEALING, burning rubber and smoke, the
ambulance roars away into the early morning.
EXT. POLICE STATION - CELLBLOCK - DAWN
Meagan stares through the bars of her cell at the sun
as it peeks out over the horizon. The deputy gets up
to leave for the six a.m. shift change. As she goes,
she switches on the cellblock TV.
ANGLE ON TV -- An early morning religious program
This is Channel 12 -- Station W.G.O.D.
-- where the "W" stands for "Worship"
And now... "Daily Affirmation" with
Reverend Lawrence Lovejoy...
A shot of the REVEREND LOVEJOY at the podium in his
studio, giving kind words of encouragement.
Good morning, friends... the Good
Book says that each morning brings
a new light into our lives...
The good reverend goes on about it always being darkest
before the dawn, have faith and your prayers will be
answered, etc. Meagan turns and watches the sunrise
-- glorious. Tears stream down her cheeks. Then a
commercial comes on:
You can own a videotape of Reverend
Lovejoy's Daily Affirmation for only

In his booth at the main gate, the GATE GUARD watches

We're here to see the Reverend
Lovejoy. We need him to perform a

No. I have a Beretta.

The REVEREND LOVEJOY is at his podium, his WIFE at the
organ, waiting for the commercial break to be over.
The FLOOR MANAGER counts down -- three... two... one...
BAM! -- the cultists burst into the studio. The CAMERA
OPERATOR and FLOOR MANAGER are killed. The Reverend
Lovejoy and his WIFE, at the organ, are taken hostage.
INT. POLICE STATION - CELLBLOCK - SAME TIME
ANGLE ON TV as the cultists take the reverend and his
wife hostage. Meagan watches, suddenly perplexed.
INT. STUDIO - NEXT SECOND
The cultists break into the control room, killing the
DIRECTOR and STAFF. One slips into the sound booth,
garroting the RELIGIOUS ANNOUNCER with a piece of wire.
Another SMASHES the control board, killing the signal.
All the feed monitors go snowy.
INT. CELLBLOCK - SAME TIME
ANGLE ON TV as the picture goes to static. Just then,
the deputy appears in front of Meagan's cell.
Something just happened at the TV
Don't worry about it -- get undressed.
Time to get you cleaned up for court.
Meagan looks back at the TV as she slowly starts to
INT. POLICE STATION - SHOWERS - MOMENTS LATER
The deputy ushers Meagan into the showers. Inside,
a naked group of mean, nasty, ugly JAIL HOUSE BITCHES
are showering, washing hairy pits, flabby tattooed
skin, and greasy hair. They eye Meagan like the
dessert bar at Denny's as she crosses to the opposite
side, sneaking into a corner. Meagan turns on the
shower and drops the towel -- the bitches whistle and
Just then, the deputy gets called away, leaving Meagan
to the mercy of the bitches. The head bitch slides
over to Meagan and says:
What's the matter, honey... you
don't like our company?
I like you... sure. It's just that
I usually shower alone, that's all.
Oh! So you're shy? I like 'em when
The head bitch grabs at Meagan, who resists. But this
bitch is big and tough and holds Meagan by the wrists
as she tries to kiss her. The other bitches laugh.
Don't fight it, baby! You know you
Meagan scratches the head bitch's face. She backs
off screaming, wiping blood from her face. Then she
spits, reaches down (below the frame line) and
produces a shiv.
If you won't give me a piece then
I'll just cut one for myself...
The head bitch moves in. Meagan takes a cautious
step back, bumping into tile -- nowhere to go. She
holds up her hands.
Wait a second... I didn't mean to
do that... I'm sorry. It's just that
you come on a little strong, that's
all. Just give me a little time to
adjust to my new surroundings...
The head bitch stops, curious.
Are you saying you want me now?
Yes... I want you.
Meagan comes up to the woman, raising her arms. In a
flash, the head bitch has the shiv to Meagan's jugular
-- a warning. Meagan carefully puts her arm around
the bitch and kisses her full on the mouth. After a
long, uncomfortable moment, they break. The head
Now that's more like it!
(to the others)
Hey, this bitch is alright!
The other bitches smile as the head bitch slips her
arm around Meagan's waist and pulls her tight.
You're okay, honey... what's your
So... what're you in for, Meagan?
(sniffles a little)
Oh, my friend...
The bitch that died last night?
(starts to cry)
Yeah... they said she had some
disease that made her... explode!
Oh, God! Please hold me!
The head bitch holds Meagan tight as she sobs,
smoothing her hair. The other bitches share a look
of concern as one asks:
What's this bullshit about some
killer funk make you explode?
Easy... honey. It's goin' be
alright. But what I asked you is
why you're in here?
Oh... well... the cops? Well, they
think I gave it to her...
The head bitch suddenly springs back as if Meagan
were Satan himself. She runs for the other bitches
but they aren't having anything to do with her. All
the bitches race for the exit.
The deputy comes to the shower room doorway and
What the hell is all the screaming
WHAM! -- the bitches run her over, stripping the keys
from her belt. They unlock the cellblock door and go
running into the police station, screaming butt-naked.
After the bitches exit, Meagan's hand reaches out and
drags the unconscious deputy into the shower.
INT. POLICE STATION - NEXT SECOND
The bitches come running butt-naked and screaming
through the station. Several deputies chase after
them, tackle them and try to cuff them. A brawl
Murdoch sits on a desk, reading a report. He looks
up at the madness and mutters:
INT. POLICE STATION - SHOWERS - MOMENTS LATER
A DEPUTY enters the showers and sees a naked woman
on top of a deputy, their arms locked in a struggle.
The deputy cracks the naked woman in the back of the
head with her baton and she falls to the side,
revealing Meagan -- now dressed in the deputy's
uniform -- laying on the shower floor.
The deputy realizes her mistake too late -- Meagan
sprays her in the face with mace and she sinks to
her knees, screaming and clutching her face. Meagan
leaps to her feet, grabs a towel to hold over her
face (as if she had a broken nose) and starts to exit.
On her way out, Meagan is passed by several DEPUTIES
charging into the showers to restore order. She
gestures them on, then slips into an emergency exit
EXT. POLICE STATION - CONTINUOUS ACTION
Meagan exits the station just as a patrol car pulls
up. She reaches in and grabs the JUNIOR TROOPER,
pulling him out. Then she slips behind the wheel
and ROARS off. The junior trooper calls after her:
Hey, that's Captain Murdoch's car!
INT. STUDIO - SAME TIME
The cultists surround Reverend Lovejoy as he nervously
shakes his head, saying:
I won't do it! It's a sin!
One of the cultists puts a gun to Mrs. Lovejoy's head.
Wedding or funeral... your choice.
The reverend swallows and says:
And who would be the bride?
Lizzy is brought forth. The cultists take her arm
and inject her with the dream dope. Lizzy's head
lulls around as she chants softly:
One... two... Freddy's coming for
The rest of the cultists shoot up -- passing the
needle from one to another.
Three... four... Better lock your
The good reverend watches this with a lump in his
throat. He shudders and asks:
And the groom.
Lizzy is almost asleep.
Five... six... grab your crucifix...
The neon cross behind the podium begins to flicker.
Then with a sharp SNAP of electricity, the cross
falls over, turning upside down. It hangs there for
an instant then -- POW! -- the cross EXPLODES, catching
the curtains on FIRE.
As the FLAMES consume the curtains, a hole in reality
appears -- a Dreamgate. Freddy comes springing out,
leaping in front of the podium. He laughs and turns
to Lizzy, asleep on the bench.
That's for the lift sister!
(to the cultists)
Ready to get hitched?
Then let's do it!
Lizzy looks up and smiles.
I love you, Freddy...
INT. POLICE STATION - AFTERNOON
A DEPUTY comes up to Murdoch and says:
We found your patrol car, Captain.
It was abandoned near a local

casts out of that location.

...or forever hold their peace.
WHAM! -- Meagan bursts in.
Everyone turns and looks as Meagan comes to the pulpit.
Take me, Freddy. Take me instead.
You're a virgin?!
Oh, that's right -- tell everybody!
Freddy moves close to Meagan, running a blade over and
around Meagan's neck as she struggles to remain calm.
Mmmmmmm! Yes, you are a bit juicier
than your retard sister... okay,
you've got the job.
Get her ready.
EXT. RELIGIOUS TV STATION - NIGHT
Outside, the cultists surrounding the outside of the
station watch as dozens of police vehicles swarm to
the fence. Murdoch and the S.W.A.T. commander get
out of the lead car. Murdoch picks up his bullhorn
This is Captain Renton Murdoch --
State Trooper. I'm giving you until
the count of three to come out with
your hands up...
A CULTIST SNIPER FIRES a shot at Murdoch, the bullet
hit SMASHING the emergency lights atop his car. The
other cops duck down, but not Murdoch, he turns
calmly to the S.W.A.T. commander and says:
Hand me that flare pistol.
The commander gives the flare gun to Murdoch, adding:
Good idea. Throw a little light on
them -- see if we can spot their
As the commander speaks, Murdoch aims the pistol
carefully and FIRES. PHOOMPH! -- the flare streaks
to the roof of the TV station, SMACKING the sniper.
He BURSTS into FLAMES and tumbles to the ground,
screaming. Murdoch hands the flare gun back to the
commander, going back on the bullhorn and saying:
Alright, now I'm through playing
"nice guy" -- I want the rest of
you punks to come out right now
with your hands up.
The cultists respond by filling the air with hot lead
-- BULLET HITS RIDDLE the cop cars, SMASHING glass
and PIERCING metal. The cops FIRE back, BULLET HITS
EXPLODING all along the sides of the TV station.
INT. STUDIO - NEXT MOMENT
The cultists bare Meagan's arm and inject her with
dream dope. She takes her place at the threshold
EXT. RELIGIOUS TV STATION - SAME TIME
As the battle outside between the cultists and the
cops RAGES, Murdoch and the S.W.A.T. commander squat
down behind a fender to reload.
Well, it doesn't look like they're
going to surrender.
What we're going to need then is
somebody to charge their lines --
make a hole for us to slip in.
Where are you going to find anyone
Just then, an ambulance comes ROARING through the
police lines, causing the cops to scurry like mice.
Here comes one now...
GO GIT 'EM, SON!
Murdoch squints to see who's driving... it's Jason!
Erwin smiles and waves to Murdoch through the passenger
side window as the ambulance zooms past.
Murdoch curses, drawing his pistol and SHOOTING after
The other COPS join in a moment later, BULLET HITS
SPARKING off the back of the ambulance as it CRASHES
through the front gate.
Inside the ambulance, Erwin hazards a glance back at
the cops, then he turns to Jason and says:
That was easy enough...
Erwin looks ahead and screams.
ANGLE THROUGH WINDSHIELD as three cultists stand
directly in front of the speeding ambulance, FIRING
machine guns. The glass EXPLODES just as Erwin
Two cultists suddenly scatter as Jason rams the
ambulance into the middle one just before plowing
into the side of the station with a CRASH.
Erwin pushes down his airbag just in time to see a
cultist closing in with a gun. He reaches through the
smashed windshield and grabs the squashed cultist's
machine gun laying on the hood. Erwin turns, SHOOTS
the cultist just in time.
As Jason kicks open the driver's side door he is
greeted by two cultists SHOOTING at him. Jason RIPS
OFF the driver's side door and hurls it at the two
punks, knocking them down like bowling pins. Then
Jason reaches back into the ambulance, pulls out the
Jaws of Life and, with Erwin covering his back, starts
towards the front door.
INT. STUDIO - SAME TIME
The wedding proceeds...
Once again... if there be anyone
among you who does not want these
two people to be joined... let him
speak now or forever hold his peace.
Meagan looks around... no one says anything. The
reverend clears his throat to continue when...
WHAM! -- the studio door flies open and Jason appears
in the doorway holding the Jaws of Life.
The cultists attack Jason. Jason grabs the first
one with the Jaws of Life -- folds him in half like
a rag doll. Another attacks with a machete... bad
idea. One more cultist down and now Jason owns the
machete. Jason finishes off the last two cultists
as Erwin barricades the studio door. The cultists
on the other side start POUNDING.
Jason starts swinging at Freddy with the machete,
slicing through a camera cable. CLOSE ON CABLE as
it falls to the floor.
Freddy jumps back through the Dreamgate, closing it
Erwin runs over to Meagan and Lizzy. He tries to
wake them but can't. As Jason lumbers over, Erwin
looks up and says:
I can't wake them up. Freddy's
got them trapped!
Erwin thinks for a moment, then rushes over to a
couple of dead cultists. He takes their syringes.
Erwin jabs Jason in the neck with two syringes full
of dream dope.
Go get him, boy!
Jason staggers forward, falling into...
INT. NIGHTMARE ARENA - CONTINUOUS ACTION
Jason falls into a boxing arena. The ropes are
entrails and atop each corner post is mounted a human
head. The spectators are all DEMONS, MONSTERS, and
the LIVING DEAD.
Jason looks over at his opponent -- dressed in boxing
shorts, shoes, and gloves -- it's Freddy.
Jason raises his arms and finds he too is wearing
TED BUNDY steps into the ring.
Ladies and gentlemen... welcome
to the fight of the century! I'm
your ring announcer... Ted Bundy!
BANG! -- a bullet hole appears in Ted's forehead,
BLOWING his brains out the back. He falls over DEAD
and the crowd cheers. Ted sits up and pulls the wig
back over his shaved head and electric burns as he
calls into the balcony:
Verrrrrry funny, Oswald!
ANGLE IN BALCONY -- OSWALD stands, his rifle still
It wasn't me!
Ted Bundy gets to his feet and finishes the intro:
In my left corner, weighing in at
only ninety seven pounds... the
nightmare master himself! The one!
The only... Freddddddddy
Freddy holds up his arms and the crowd goes wild.
And on my right... weighing in at
a whopping four hundred and thir-
teen pounds... that killer of
countless teenagers... the big
(gestures to Jason)
CHEERS and BOOS.
And the prize tonight... not one but
TWO -- count 'em -- TWO virgins...
ripe for the picking.
Ted gestures to a large cage suspended over the arena.
Inside -- Meagan and Lizzy clutch eachother.
Hey, have one now and save the other
for the ride home. That's what I did.
LAUGHTER from the crowd.
Kick his ass, Jason!
DING! -- the bell sounds. The first round begins...
Freddy starts towards Jason, cocking his glove for a
blow when -- CH-CHING! -- knife blades jut out of the
glove. He punches Jason in the stomach and starts
RIPPING him open, rotten guts spilling out.
Jason spots a cocktail waitress walking past with an
axe in her head. This is BLOODY MARY. Jason reaches
over the side of the ring and pulls the axe out of
her head. Bloody Mary whips around, yelling:
Jason swings with the axe -- SH-WACK! -- Jason SLICES
OFF Freddy's arm. The crowd ROARS. Freddy looks
down at the open armpit, GUSHING with ROTTEN BLOOD,
Oh, well... I just axed for that!
Freddy GROWS a new arm, complete with glove of knives.
Jason throws the axe at Freddy, who ducks it. The
axe flies into the audience, SMACKING MUSSOLINI square
between the eyes. He falls back to the floor. HITLER
turns to EVA BRAUN and says disdainfully:
DING! The bell sounds. Freddy and Jason break, going
into their respective corners. As Jason sits down in
his corner, the HUMAN HEAD mounted on his corner post
That's it, kiddo! You're really
giving it to him out there! Use the
left more -- jab! Make him hurt!
That's the ticket to a knockout!
Up in her cage, Meagan clutches a terrifed Lizzy.
INT. STUDIO - SAME TIME
Erwin watches Jason sleep as the cultists BANG down
the studio door.
INT. NIGHTMARE ARENA - NEXT MOMENT
DING! The bell sounds again and round two begins.
Freddy and Jason get to their feet and close in on
each other. Jason swings wide. Freddy ducks under
Jason's massive fist just as the referee steps in for
a close look. WHUMP -- Jason knocks the ref's head
OFF, it goes flying up into the balcony. The crowd
Jason chases Freddy around the ring, looking for an
opening. Freddy backpeddles, tripping over the ref's
decapitated body as several HUNGRY ZOMBIES drag him out
of the ring, RIPPING his body apart and DEVOURING it.
Up in their cage, Meagan and Lizzy grimace with
Jason reaches down and grabs Freddy, hoisting him
high above his head. Then Jason body slams Freddy
to the mat. The crowd CHEERS.
Jason starts jumping up and down on Freddy's back.
Freddy reaches into his shirt and brings out a rusty
can of spinach. In a grotesque parody of Popeye he
opens the can -- full of nasty worms and maggots --
and gulps it down. Suddenly, Freddy throws Jason off
his back and stands, huge muscles ballooning on his
chest and arms. At the end of his right hand -- a
heavy metal boxing glove.
Jason gets to his feet in time to see Freddy cock the
massive glove for a blow.
CHING! -- dozens of spikes spring out of the metal
glove. Freddy swings, knocking Jason into the ropes.
He bounces off and falls to the mat. The fans go nuts.
As Jason tries to get up, Freddy swings his right arm
around and around -- the metal boxing glove turning
into a giant mallet. Jason looks up just in time to
see the mallet coming down. WHAM! -- Freddy drives
Jason into the mat. The crowd goes wild.
>From up in her cage, Meagan starts to scream:
Jason! Get up! Get up!
ANGLE UNDER THE MAT -- it's a dark, foreboding (under-
water) abyss. Jason's legs kick, trying to get back
up. Something slithers up from out of the deep...
wisps of empty blackness clutching at Jason's boots.
Freddy pushes down on Jason's mask, shoving him down.
Jason struggles but keeps slipping. This looks like
the end of Jason. Freddy laughs.
Jason! You've got to get up!
JASON'S P.O.V. of Freddy looking down at him, pushing
him down... drowning him...
FLASH CUT TO:
EXT. CAMP CRYSTAL LAKE - 1953 - DAY
YOUNG JASON P.O.V. as he is being drowned. He fights
to get to the surface... to see... who it is...
Young Jason breaks the surface for an instant and
his killer comes into sharp focus.
It's FREDDY (AGE 13). His Camp Crystal Lake nametag
reads: Hi! My name is Freddy! He pushes the young
Jason down again, laughing.
HARD CUT TO:
INT. NIGHTMARE ARENA - NEXT INSTANT
Freddy pushes Jason down into the abyss below the
mat... laughing, when Jason snaps. With a burst
of strength he kicks upward, coming up out of the
mat. Jason grabs Freddy by the throat and seizes
him up with him.
Jason's momentum carries both of them up to the
ceiling, where they CRASH through to...

Jason "wakes up", holding Freddy by the throat as
he bangs his head into the lighting gridwork above
the studio. A light EXPLODES and Freddy cries in
pain... then realizes, he's been brought into the
Jason throws Freddy to the ground, then raises up a
boot and stomps Freddy's head, SQUASHING it like a
tomato. The Dream Demons squirt out.
Just then, the cultists BREAK DOWN the studio door.
They raise their weapons to fire, when their heads
suddenly IMPLODE. They fall screaming to the floor
EXT. RELIGIOUS TV STATION - NIGHT - SAME INSTANT
The remaining cultists SHOOTING it out with the
police suddenly grab their heads, screaming. Their
heads IMPLODE and they fall to the ground. Murdoch
sees this and says to the S.W.A.T. commander:
Now's my chance... give me sixty
seconds to get in there then move
Before the commander can reply, Murdoch is off and
running into the station.
INT. STUDIO - SAME TIME
Meagan and Lizzy come out of their sleep-like trance
and embrace. Then Meagan looks up at Erwin.
What took you so long?!
Erwin gestures to Jason, trying to keep his voice low
so as to not hurt the big guy's feelings.
What ever you do... don't let this
Meagan smiles at Jason.
I knew you would come...
Jason and Meagan look over to where Freddy's body is
fast decaying... turning back into blackened bones,
scraps of cloth, and a rusting glove of knives.
The Dream Demons squirm around on the studio floor,
then swim into the open end of the camera cable and
In the control room, Freddy's face appears on every
Oh, no! Freddy's in the transmitter!
Erwin watches as an electrical Freddy-impulse races
from the control room via a long thick cable running
He's going for the satellite dish!
If he uplinks with a communications
satellite he can beam himself any-
where in the world! We'll never be
rid of him!
Meagan and Jason look up at the Freddy-impulse shoots
past them, going through the ceiling to the...
EXT. RELIGIOUS TV STATION - ROOF - CONTINUOUS ACTION
The satellite dish mounted on the roof. It begins
to pulsate with an olive and red glow -- getting
ready to beam Freddy.

Meagan reaches up and grabs the cable, pulling it
EXT. ROOF - CONTINUOUS ACTION
The roof gives way, tilting the big dish just as it
BLASTS the laughing Freddy-beam into the night sky.
EXT. EARTH'S UPPER ATMOSPHERE - NEXT INSTANT
The Freddy-beam just misses the satellite, ricocheting
off one of the solar panels and sending the satellite
tumbling into deep space.
The deflected Freddy-beam now zooms towards the sun.
Inside the beam -- Freddy sees the sun zooming up
and screams. His face burns away, leaving a screaming
skull. That too burns away, leaving the Dream Demons.
One by one they burn up as the beam reaches the sun.
ANGLE ON THE SUN as the beam EXPLODES, causing a
INT. TV STATION - STUDIO - SAME TIME
The ceiling collapses in on Jason, burying him under
a ton of rubble and the big antenna dish. A ton of
dust billows up.
Just then, Murdoch bursts in. He sees Lizzy and
Meagan and takes aim with the shotgun. Erwin sees
this and jumps in-between them, yelling:
Murdoch FIRES. The shotgun blast knocks Erwin across
the room, where he lands in a heap. Meagan and Lizzy
run to his side.
Erwin struggles to breathe -- a large hole in his
chest. With fading strength, Erwin pulls his pin
out and pricks himself. Erwin smiles and dies.
He's dead... and so are you if you
don't put your hands up right now!
Lizzy turns and attacks Murdoch. He knocks her to
the floor, taking aim on her head with the shotgun
as he says:
It's time I taught you girls some
respect for the law!
In a panic, Meagan snatches up a pistol from a fallen
cultist and FIRES it at Murdoch's head.
PTT-TWANG! -- Murdoch's hat goes flying off with a
SPARK HIT, revealing his bald, hideous head -- a
large open wound with a metal plate underneath. He
turns towards Meagan with an evil grin on his face.
So... you wanna be a punk?
Murdoch raises the shotgun, taking aim on Meagan.
Then die like a punk!
Murdoch starts to squeeze the trigger when Jason's
hand shoots out of the rubble pile behind him. Jason
jams his hand down the back of Murdoch's pants and
pulls up his briefs, lifting him a foot off the floor
with a Jason-wedgy as he rises from the rubble. We
see Murdoch's name written into his shorts.
As Murdoch screams, Jason jerks the shotgun from his
hand and jams it up his ass -- right through the seat
of his pants. Murdoch's cheeks bulge out as the
muzzle slams into the roof of his mouth. Jason cocks
the shotgun and...
BOOM! -- Murdoch's head and shoulders EXPLODE from
his torso, leaving his broken spine sticking up out
of shirt. Bits of Murdoch splatter the floor as his
metal plate comes PINGING down, rolling around and
spinning to a stop like a hubcap.
Jason drops Murdoch (what's left of him) to the
floor just as the S.W.A.T. commander and his men
come charging in. They see Jason and raise their
guns in panic.
Too late. The cops let loose with a BARRAGE of GUN-
FIRE. BULLET HITS EXPLODE on Jason's chest. Meagan
grabs Lizzy and covers her up as the bullets WHIZZ
More cops hear the SHOOTING and come running. They
start SHOOTING too. Soon the doorway to the studio
is crowded with muzzle flash.
More and more BULLET HITS SMACK Jason. A bullet
hole outline appears on the wall behind him.
The cops start running out of ammo and a cry goes
up, "More ammo! More ammo!".
VARIOUS INSERTS OF cops going for hideout pistols,
opening their trunks and taking out ammo cans,
passing the weapons and ammo up the staircase to the
cops in the studio.
Jason keeps getting SHOT. Pieces of his are flying
off. Fingers shot off of a hand. A knee shot away
to reveal the bone. Dozens of BULLET HITS going off
of his chest and head.
Finally, the cops start to run out of ammo. The
SHOOTING subsides and finally grinds to a stop, leaving
the cops knee-high in brass and a thick layer of
gunsmoke in the room.
As it clears, Jason still stands. He teeters a little,
then falls backwards with a mighty THUD.
Jason lays dying. Meagan rushes to his side. Jason
reaches into one of the giant holes in his chest and
pulls something out -- Jesse's heart.
Jason hands the heart to Meagan. Then Jason's head
rolls back -- he's dead.
Meagan begins weeping as we pull up out of the studio,
revealing her surrounded by Jason, Freddy, and Murdoch.
INT. LIZZY'S ROOM - NIGHT
Meagan tucks Lizzy into her bed. She gives her the
Raggedy Ann doll and kisses her goodnight. As Meagan
turns out the light, Lizzy asks:

No monsters here.
But what if they come back?

licks Meagan in the face. She yelps and slams the
Meagan puts the phone in a drawer and closes it. She
climbs into bed and pulls back the pillow to reveal

Ted Bundy and all the spectators are looking up at
