1. INT. ROOM - NIGHT

A meeting is taking place. A small table sits in the middle of the room. The only one in the room at the moment is SETH REUBEN, a young man in his late teens. Near SETH is a small file.

There is a knock at the door.

SETH

Come in.

THOMAS and WILLIAM - two brothers - walk into the room, and stand at the door, side by side.

THOMAS

Evening, Seth.

SETH

Sit, sit.

THOMAS and WILLIAM sit. SETH gets out three scotch glasses then places a large bottle of blood on the table in front of them.

SETH

Blood, boys?

THOMAS

None for me, thanks. I've just drank.

SETH

Oh, please, I insist. The blood was imported from a good friend of mine in Johannesburg. Wonderful bouquet and the taste is just...out of this world.

WILLIAM

I'll have a bit then, if you don't mind. Thomas doesn't like foreign stuff.

SETH

A xenophobe?

THOMAS

No, I'm just not...the adventurous type.

SETH

I assure you, you will not regret it.

SETH laughs, then pours out a glass for WILLIAM, and hands it to him. He pours one for himself.

CU of WILLIAM taking a drink. He widens his eyes.

CU of SETH taking a sip. He sighs.

WILLIAM

Woah.

SETH

Got a kick, hasn't it? Now, gentlemen, I'd love to sit and chat about my blood imports, but...

(he sighs)

I have a problem...

THOMAS

What problem?

SETH

Ah, it involves your recruits.

WILLIAM

What's wrong with them?

SETH

They're not up to my standards...over the last few days, they've started to become increasingly difficult to control.

THOMAS

I find that hard to believe. There was that constable....

WILLIAM

And that head council lad.

SETH

I know that, but the fact that he is a police officer may damage our existence.

WILLIAM

Well, it's not as if he's some sort of mole. We would have dealt with that months ago.

SETH

Not at all. I dealt with that situation myself.

SETH gets up from his seat, and walks to a wardrobe. He opens the doors, and out comes the two men they have been talking about.

CU of MAN#1, staring into space. Dead.

SETH walks back to the seat and sits down.

SETH

Now, you understand the nature of my disappointment. Let me ask you, if you were to shoplift from, let's say, Sainburys, you wouldn't take all the food would you? No, you'd take the odd one or two things, small things. Do you understand what I am saying?

THOMAS

Not really.

SETH

I'm saying, you...idiots, I specifically recall myself telling you to recruit vagrants, people who won't be missed. Oh, wait, did you pay a visit to that human drug dealer before you went out. You should never do drug blood.

WILLIAM

What you trying to sa -

THOMAS holds him back.

THOMAS

Leave it, Will.

SETH

I'm sorry, am I speaking out of turn here? Am I to be punished because two stupid, headless boys didn't follow my orders? But anyway, you should listen to that brother of yours, he may have possibly just saved your life. Because if you so much as mutter an obscenity at your paying employer again, I'll make sure you get what's coming to you.

(he leans back)

Now, gentlemen, if it isn't too much of a fuss I'd like to brief you.

 

WILLIAM makes a low growl at the back of his throat, but takes another sip of his blood to calm him down.

WILLIAM

Fine, what is it?

SETH

What do you know of the Wade-Stone incident?

WILLIAM and THOMAS look at each other, blank. They shrug. SETH sighs, smiles, and then leans back, taking another sip.

SETH

I had a feeling you wouldn't. This incident occurred in various points throughout the Formby Area, which I'm sure you would be familiar with. Although, it was a poorly constructed plan. Trying to kidnap human children. I'm assuming they didn't think about the reactions of the parents. Then again, they were werewolves.

THOMAS

Yeah, werewolves are stupid.

WILLIAM

Stupid mutts.

SETH laughs.

SETH

I guess you will be able to relate to them admirably then. Now, I want you to find someone for me.

SETH pushes a file towards them. It has a passport sized picture of COLIN STONE - a young werewolf of 16 - attached to the top corner. THOMAS takes it and looks at it.

 

 

SETH

Although he is a werewolf, his actions during this were something to be admired. He currently lives with a human family, along with his brother, who also seems to have some wolf blood in him. I want you to find this boy. I may watch over your actions just so you aren't distracted. And hey, I don't want anybody bitten or -

SETH makes a cut throat gesture, smiling. THOMAS nods, takes the photograph, and pulls WILLIAM out of the room.

CUT TO:

2. INT. STREET - NIGHT

WILLIAM storms out of the door, followed by THOMAS. WILLIAM looks for something in anger, finds a bin, grabs it and launches it into the air -

- making a loud crash! -

WILLIAM

That no good little shit! Who does he think he is? Oh, my name is Seth! I have blood imported from all over the world. Isn't that bouquet nice? Have a drink and while you're at it, wipe my arse, will ya!

THOMAS

Will, come on -

WILLIAM

No, listen! Didn't you just want to jump at him and tear that little grin off his face?! Even just for a second?

THOMAS

Course, I did but -

WILLIAM

Well there you go! Why should we do anything for him anyway?

SETH O/S

Because -

SETH has pushed open a window to talk to them.

SETH

- if you don't, you will regret it. I’ll personally seek out new employment who

I’ll order to kill you.

WILLIAM growls, but THOMAS pulls him back.

SETH (CONTD)

Oh...are you looking for a death wish?

THOMAS

Come on, Will. We'll sort this out tomorrow.

SETH

Cheerio, boys.

CUT TO: THOMAS AND WILLIAM walking into the darkness.

FADE OUT:

                                                    FADE IN:

3. INT. ROOM - DAY

The atmosphere is lively, when we are introduced into the scene. There are plates of food all around the room. We PAN across the room to reveal JAKE, COLIN and KAREN with other friends. COLIN, KAREN and the other friends are sitting on sofas in front of JAKE They are playing a game of charades. No one seems to be getting JAKE's charade though. We can just hear their voices as the VOICE OVER speaks:

COLIN V/O

We have our good times -

4. INT. WOODS - NIGHT

COLIN is walking towards the woods, enlightened by the full moon. He has a large Nike bag hanging from his neck.

CUT TO:

COLIN walks towards the warehouse.

5. INT. WAREHOUSE - NIGHT

COLIN screams as he turns into a werewolf.

COLIN V/O

- and we have our bad times -

6. INT. STREET - DAY

COLIN is riding down a street, on his bike. He is happy, content.

COLIN V/O

- I guess this is what makes people human really -

DOUGLAS appears in front of him, his hands in his pockets, smiling.

COLIN

What the -

COLIN hits the brakes immediately, and falls off his bike. He is scratched a little over his eyebrow, with little bleeding. Nothing bad. He winces as he gets himself back onto his bike, then looks back:

- DOUGLAS was gone -

COLIN looks away, confused at this. FOLLOW COLIN up the street as the voiceover continues.

COLIN V/O

- but the day when I saw Doug. I feared my problems would come flooding back -

7. EXT. SCHOOL - DAY

COLIN gets off his bike, and pushes it into the old bike shed. He walks back out.

8. INT. SCHOOL - DAY

COLIN walks towards the camera, looking up and down. We CUT to the back of COLIN to reveal that he is looking at a bulletin board, with a poster saying: PROM COMING SOON! ALL BOYS HAVE TO BRING A GIRL!

COLIN V/O

- and Doug was just the least of my problems. Despite fighting werewolves, staring death in the face and having to spend one day of the month as a bloodthirsty monster, it was the Prom that seemed the most terrifying.

CAMERA pans from a CU of COLIN's face, to see HARRY TALL standing next to him.

HARRY

Y'alright, Col.

COLIN

Y'alright.

HARRY looks at the poster.

HARRY

You going?

COLIN

Dunno. Might do...it's...it's not a big deal for me -

HARRY

Yeah, it is -

COLIN

It completely is....are you planning to go?

HARRY

Yeah.

COLIN

Are...you haven't...got anyone have you?

HARRY

Oh, yeah, I have. Going with that Sandra.

COLIN

Oh...right.

HARRY

D'you know her?

COLIN

A little.

HARRY

So, have you got a date?

COLIN

(he laughs)

That's a bit,...just a bit personal. I don't - I don't want to tell you how I'm...going with.

HARRY

Who you going with?

COLIN

No one.

HARRY laughs. The bell rings. HARRY turns away and begins to walk up the corridor.

HARRY

You'll get one, eventually. I mean, you're not ugly, are ya? But you got to hurry up before all the good ones are taken.

COLIN watches HARRY go.

 

9. INT. CLASSROOM - DAY

COLIN walks into the classroom with Harry. COLIN stops at the door. Students sit lovingly with other students, some kissing each other, when the TEACHER wasn't looking.

COLIN sits at his seat. CAMERA pans to where COLIN is looking. HARRY and SANDRA are kissing each other. COLIN looks away awkwardly.

COLIN

Harry...

They ignore him. COLIN leans forward towards them, as they continue snogging.

COLIN (CONTD)

I heard you got into the football team, Harry....ok, keep ignoring me and....kissing her..face off.

HARRY continues to ignore him.

COLIN looks away, and sighs. MR BELFORD tries to maintain order.

MR BELFORD

All right, you lot. We're going to be making smile today -

There is a wave of cheering throughout the class. MR BELFORD laughs at this. The teaching assistant then comes in with a stack of worksheets.

MR BELFORD (CONTD)

But, before we do any of that, we need to do some theory.

The teaching assistant walks in and out of tables, placing sheets on the table.

CU of COLIN'S FACE, bored with the lesson already.

MR BELFORD (CONTD)

Now, in order to make slime, we -

There is a knock at the door.

MR BELFORD (CONTD)

Come in

The HEADTEACHER, MR GREEN, walks into the room.

MR BELFORD (CONTD)

Oh, hello, sir. What can we do for you?

MR GREEN

I've come to bring in three new students, Seth, Tom and Will.

SETH, THOMAS and WILLIAM walk into the classroom.

SLOW MOTION:

CUT TO: COLIN turning to see them.

COLIN'S P.O.V: SETH walks through the classroom. THOMAS and WILLIAM walk behind, like followers, as they sit together on a table.

CU of COLIN's nose.

As he inhales the air. He takes a sharp lungful of breath.

BACK TO NORMAL PACE:

He coughs suddenly.

MR GREEN

Are you okay, Colin?

COLIN comes back from looking at SETH.

COLIN'S P.O.V: Everyone in the classroom is now looking at him.

COLIN

Oh...I'm..I'm fine, sir. Just a little cough -

(he coughs)

- I think I have a sore throat coming.

COLIN'S P.O.V: SETH is looking at COLIN sternly.

MR GREEN

Right...., well, these three have moved here from the Wirral, and they don't know anyone around here. I want you all to make them feel right at home. You got that?

STUDENTS

Yes, sir.

MR GREEN leaves the room.

MR BELFORD continues his lesson. His voices fades out as COLIN watches SETH, THOMAS and WILLIAM.

SERIES OF SHOTS:

1) MR BELFORD is explaining, no sound, to the class on he whiteboard on how to make slime.

2) COLIN'S P.O.V: COLIN looks curiously over at SETH's table, as they make no conversation to anyone or even each other.

3) CU of SETH'S pale skin as he writes in his book.

WITH SOUND: The bell rings.

The CLASS stampede out of the room, ignoring MR BELFORD's shouts for quiet. COLIN gets up to walk, watching SETH, THOMAS and WILLIAM walk out, following gingerly.

CUT TO:

10. INT. CORRIDOR - DAY

SETH is standing with THOMAS and WILLIAM, who are laughing and talking to each other. COLIN appears around a corner, watching them. He continues walking until - MR PREACHER approaches!

mr preacher

Colin! Are you going to tell me when you decide to hand in your maths homework? You can't stay in detention forever.

SETH is watching COLIN. THOMAS and WILLIAM are looking too. SETH turns back and says something to them.

COLIN

I was...actually, I mean you'll definitely get it...just...not now.

MR PREACHER

I can't wait forever, you know! Colin, you -

A piece of paper flies in between them, interrupting MR PREACHER. CAMERA widens to reveal SETH, looking at MR PREACHER with the piece of paper in his hand. SETH looks at COLIN.

SETH

Hey, Colin, you dropped this. I think it's...maths homework?

MR PREACHER snatches the piece of paper. He puts his glasses on and examines it.

MR PREACHER

This isn't your writing, Stone. Looks too formal for you. You didn't have any -

(he looks at SETH)

- help, did you?

COLIN

No, sir...I've been practicing.

SETH

And I've just moved here, sir. How could I do it?

MR PREACHER looks at SETH, then COLIN suspiciously, but then walks off. SETH, as if oblivious to COLIN's existence, walks away to join THOMAS and WILLIAM.

COLIN

Hey! How did you do it?

SETH

I have my sources. Now, bye.

COLIN

Hang on!

SETH turns. He looks annoyed.

SETH

What is it? I don't have all day, you know.

COLIN

It's Seth, right? I just wanted to say thanks.

SETH

Ok, you're welcome. Bye -

COLIN

Wait!

SETH

What?

COLIN

You just saved my arse from another detention, and now you don't want to know me?

SETH

Oh, look at you, Mr All-About-Me. Just cos I saved your 'arse' from detention, doesn't mean I have any desire to be your friend.

COLIN

Oh, well...well I just thought -

SETH

Do you smell that?

COLIN

N-no. Why are you talking about?

SETH

Yeah, I've been smelling it since I came here. It smells like...wet dog.

COLIN widens his eyes, but tries not to give this away.

COLIN

Well, I heard the caretaker...has a Schnauzer. He brings it in sometimes...dunno why.

THOMAS

I've seen him, Seth.

SETH

Who wanted your input?

(to COLIN)

Hang on, correct me if I'm wrong...but did he say your last name was Stone?

COLIN nods. SETH smiles, and then turns to THOMAS and WILLIAM, who are standing a small distance behind SETH, who nod.

COLIN

Why d'you ask?

SETH

Oh, we just like...earth names.

COLIN

Right.

SETH smiles at COLIN, finally looking more interested in him.

SETH

Oh, we're going to the woods after this. Want to come?

COLIN

Well, I dunno, I -

SETH

Why?

COLIN

It's n...I mean, I...just, I just I don't like going to the woods. Personal reasons....

SETH

Come on, I won't bite.

COLIN

Like I've never heard that before!

The bell rings.

SETH

Just think about it, yeah?

COLIN

Alright.

SETH turns and walks away, towards THOMAS and WILLIAM.

11. INT. CLASSROOM - DAY

COLIN is sitting at a desk, and staring into space.

COLIN V/O

I told myself I wasn't going to go back to that place, or the nightmares would come flooding back -

SETH is writing away in his exercise book while THOMAS and WILLIAM are throwing paper balls at other students. SETH only shakes his head.

COLIN V/O

- but when I first saw Seth. I saw something...different. Something new...something strange -

12. EXT. SCHOOL - DAY

COLIN is leaning against the wall, watching, as students flood out of the gates, into cars or up the road. He is waiting for SETH.

COLIN V/O

- but it was the...best feeling...to not feel like a total outcast in a world of humans.

male voice o/s

Col!

COLIN looks around hopefully, only to see HARRY and SANDRA, holding hands, smiling, and walking towards him.

COLIN

Oh, hey.

HARRY looks at COLIN, confused.

HARRY

Expecting someone else?

COLIN

Sort of, but -

HARRY

Listen, if you're all nervous about asking a girl to the prom yourself, then I'll hook you up.

COLIN

No, I don't want you to 'hook me up'. I'm fine on my own, but anyway, I don't think I can make it.

HARRY

Why?

COLIN

Oh, er...I saw it was going to be a full moon that night...on the internet, and I don't think I should go...

HARRY

Full moon? The moon can't hurt you, you know. How old are you? 8?

SANDRA

What are you, a werewolf?

They laugh, and then kiss.

COLIN

Yes, cos that's just silly, innit?

HARRY

You don't know what you're missing, Col -

SETH suddenly appears, stepping in front of HARRY. HARRY looks at SETH, annoyed.

SETH

Hey, Colin.

HARRY

Oi, mate. I was talking to him then.

SETH turns to HARRY.

SETH

Well, you've stopped talking.

SETH waves his hand, and suddenly HARRY's mouth snaps shut. HARRY falls to the ground, trying to open his mouth. We can hear his mumbled cries for SETH to stop. SETH just stands in front of HARRY casually, hands in pockets, and watches.

SANDRA

Harry!

COLIN pushes SETH out of the way, and looks at HARRY. People are beginning to crowd around him now. COLIN turns to SETH.

COLIN

Whatever you're doing, stop it!

THOMAS and WILLIAM suddenly run into the scene, and look at SETH. THOMAS, with a worried look, but WILLIAM with an annoyed one. SETH looks back at HARRY. His face is slowly turning blue. SETH sighs and waves his hands again. HARRY'S mouth open. He coughs loudly. SANDRA hugs HARRY.

MR PREACHER and MR BELFORD run up to the crowd.

MR BELFORD

What's going on here?

Kids begin to slip away.

SETH

He tried to compete with me on how long he could hold his breath. It seems to have been a little too competitive for him.

 

HARRY

What? What are you on about? You tried to choke me!

SETH

You can obviously see that he's suffering from some sort of mass delusion.

HARRY

I'll show you 'mass delusion'.

teachers

Hey!

HARRY goes for SETH, but then THOMAS and WILLIAM run in front of HARRY, crouching as if to attack him. The brothers stare at HARRY for a while, growling. HARRY backs away.

HARRY

I'll...see you tomorrow, Col...umm, come on...Sandy...

HARRY and SANDRA walk off, along with the other kids, who are looking at SETH, THOMAS and WILLIAM, as they walk away. MR PREACHER and MR BELFORD turn to COLIN.

MR BELFORD

What happened, Colin?

COLIN turns to SETH nervously. SETH nods to him. In the background, THOMAS and WILLIAM are talking to each other. COLIN looks back to the teachers.

CUT TO: SETH, THOMAS and WILLIAM. In the background, COLIN is talking to the teachers.

SETH

Let me make this...quite simple. Are you two completely out of your minds?

WILLIAM

What did we do?

SETH

What did you do? I'll tell you what you did! You two nearly ballsed this whole thing up!

THOMAS

What are you saying? He was going to attack you.

SETH

Did you see that boy's face when you growled at them? You really acted like humans there, didn't you? And in front of those teachers too! At least, we've accomplished something...that kid is the werewolf.

THOMAS

That's the werewolf?

SETH

I know one when I see one.

WILLIAM

Well, I was expecting something with a little meat on their bones, or at least someone impressive.

SETH

Have you ever heard the term 'looks can be deceiving'?

WILLIAM

Look at them, though. He's having a conversation with teachers. He's a geek!

SETH

Geek or not, he's still a werewolf. Haven’t you seen

Teen Wolf?

WILLIAM

There could be loads of Colin Stones around here. How do we know this is the one we're looking for?

SETH

Because, you idiot, I've never smelt a stronger smell of dog in my three hundred years. He's our man.

THOMAS

And why do we need him again?

SETH

If we kill someone, we can use him as a scapegoat or something. And I've never fought a werewolf before. But then again, I'll just check if he is what I think he is, just in case I have it wrong, which I doubt -

(pulls out his phone)

 

THOMAS

What are you doing?

SETH

Calling someone.

13. INT. BEAUTICIANS - DAY

BETH REUBEN is sitting as the BEAUTICIAN puts a fresh coat of varnish over her nails.

 

BEAUTICIAN

Going anywhere special tonight?

BETH

Oh, you know. Shopping with the girls. Have a bite to eat. Same old.

BEAUTICIAN

Great, this stuff will really make you look fab, especially when shopping.

BETH

Great, I'll -

A phone rings. BETH looks from side to side to find her bag. BETH tries to put her bag on her lap.

BEAUTICIAN

Here, let me.

The BEAUTICIAN pulls the phone out. BETH gently takes it and looks at the screen. She sighs.

BETH

I missed it....oh it's my brother.

BEAUTICIAN

Don't get me started on them, love.

BETH

I mean, it's like every time I'm in my comfort zone, he seems to know and then spoils my day by telling me to go on one of his stupid errands.

BEAUTICIAN

Well, I'm not supposed to do this, but do you want to break in to some of the flashy stuff?

14. EXT. SCHOOL - DAY

SETH growls in annoyance.

WILLIAM

What?

SETH

Gone straight to voicemail. She never answers her phone when I need her. Wait, here he comes. So, Colin, made a decision yet?

COLIN

Decision?

WILLIAM

To hang round with us for a bit in the woods.

COLIN

Well, my brother is a little sick, and my auntie will wonder where I am. She's a bit of a hypo -

SETH interrupts.

SETH

We'll protect you.

15. INT. WOODS - DAY

SETH and COLIN are walking together through the woods. THOMAS and WILLIAM are sitting in trees, talking to each other.

SETH

So, why don't you like the woods?

COLIN

Just bad memories really.

SETH

I see.

COLIN

So what do you do for fun? Shoot animals?

WILLIAM

To eat!

SETH laughs, but then shoots a cold look to WILLIAM.

SETH

No, we just like to come here. It makes us feel...safe for us to do what we want.

COLIN

Like?

SETH

Just things we wouldn't do in front of normal people. We're different, y'see.

COLIN

In what way?

SETH

We just are.

COLIN

Well, I know how you feel, but we're human, and that's that. You can't change that.

SETH

Of course. Can I ask you something?

COLIN

Ok.

SETH

What do you know about werewolves?

COLIN turns to SETH, confused.

COLIN

Well, completely fictional...big hairy. Comes out on a full moon.

SETH

What about vampires?

COLIN

Also fictional. Coffins? Garlic? Translyvania? Dracula?

SETH

Oh, dear. Hollywood's got to you before we could.

COLIN

Why? What do you know?

SETH

More than you probably.

COLIN

What do you mean by that?

SETH

So many questions.

COLIN

You started them.

SETH

True.

COLIN

What are we doing here anyway?

COLIN looks around as he follows SETH. He looks around. THOMAS and WILLIAM beckon him to go in.

16. INT. ABANDONED WAREHOUSE – DAY

SETH, COLIN, THOMAS and WILLIAM walk into the room.

COLIN looks around.

COLIN

What's this place?

 

SETH

A hangout.

COLIN

A dump, more like...no offense.

SETH

None taken, but this dump has a history, believe it or not -

17. FLASHBACK - EXT. ABANDONED WAREHOUSE - NIGHT

SUPERIMPOSE TITLE: 1934.

TWO YOUNG MEN are running towards the WAREHOUSE, in panic.

SETH v/o

Legend of this old shack goes back almost seventy years. Says there was a murder here, by vampires!

MAN#1

Run! They're catching up!

MAN#2

I'm going! I'm going!

18. INT. ABANDONED WAREHOUSE - DAY

COLIN looks at SETH in disbelief, smiling a little.

COLIN

Vampires?

SETH smiles, as does THOMAS and WILLIAM, but COLIN catches onto this.

COLIN

What are you smiling at?

SETH

Nothing. They like to tell jokes. Ignore them.

19. FLASHBACK - EXT. WAREHOUSE - NIGHT

MAN#1 and MAN#2 running in, both slamming the door shut. We can hear punching against the door outside. The MEN hold the door -

- then the punching stops -

- MAN#1 looks at this curiously -

- but then they laugh nervously, sighing with relief.

The MEN walk further inside the warehouse, then see something off-screen. They gasp.

CUT TO REVEAL SETH, sitting in a chair with an empty glass on a table next to him. His chest and feet are bare, with the only clothing being his trousers. He is smiling maliciously at the MEN.

SETH

Evening, boys.

The MEN begin to step back, towards the door. They both turn, to see the entrance blocked by BETH, who is dressed in normal 1930s style clothing. She is smiling maliciously. The MEN step back fearfully. We can see SETH standing up behind them.

CU of SETH. He is still smiling, and then he grins.

CU of SETH'S vampire teeth.

CU of MAN#1's eyes as they widen with fear.

MAN#1 pulls out a vial from his pocket, and throws the water inside at SETH.

MAN#1

The power of Christ compels you!

He screams, turning away -

- he staggers away -

- but then starts to laugh -

- as he wipes the water away -

SETH

Don't try and defend yourself from something you can't understand. How do you kill a vampire? Now, anyway, back to business.

BETH

We've finally caught up with you.

SETH

Yes, we've been looking for you for a while.

BETH

Uh-huh.

COLIN V/O

And did they put up a fight?

SETH v/o

Not exactly.

The MEN run towards the door, but BETH grabs them both, with agility, by their necks.

CU of the men choking as BETH squeezes their necks.

BETH pushes them to the floor, and then she lowers down to her knees, and stabs her sharp nails into their legs.

They scream in pain!

MAN#1'S P.O.V: BETH stands up slowly, as her brother SETH approaches her. He smiles at the MAN.

COLIN V/O

Why didn't they fight?

SETH V/O

Must have been the fear.

SETH

I always like my meat pummelled before I eat. Good job, sister.

BETH

Pleasure's all mine, brother.

BETH lowers down towards MAN#2.

MAN#2

No! Please! No!

We hear screaming. SETH is laughing as he looks off screen at BETH. A splatter of blood splatters across SETH's chest and his face. He laughs, and smiles. He tilts his head to the side as he watches. MAN#1 turns to MAN#2, and -

- sees BETH biting his neck. MAN#2 is muttering warily. His face is pale. We can hear MAN#1 breath increasing. BETH breaks off, showing a large vampire bite on MAN#2.

JUST THEN -

MAN#1 face is dragged back by SETH. BETH steps back and wipes the remaining blood from her lips and licks her fingers. SETH smiles, baring his fangs. 

MAN#1

Please! Don't kill me! NO!

CUT TO:

A ZOOM OUT TOWARDS THE DOOR: As this happens, we can see BETH standing over MAN#2 and continuing her feast, and then SETH launching himself at MAN#1. We can see MAN#1's feet struggling for a few seconds, but they stop.

20. INT. WAREHOUSE - DAY

SETH and COLIN are standing next to each other. They are looking at something on the floor. SETH points at it.

COLIN can see marks on the floor.

SETH

They tried to break free, but humans aren't strong enough.

COLIN

What do you mean 'Humans aren't strong enough'?. You're talking as if you are not one.

SETH looks at COLIN, annoyed.

SETH

Well...everyone knows vampires are stronger than humans, right?

COLIN nods, and then begins to walk around the room.

COLIN

Did anyone ever find the bodies?

SETH

No, I heard they were completely devoured. There's that smell again! Do you smell that?

COLIN turns to SETH, smelling the air.

COLIN

No.

SETH

Can't you? It smells like wet dog. Maybe there was a werewolf murder in here! What's wrong? Werewolf got your tongue? It's weird cos werewolves can't smell their own scent. You're not one, are you?

COLIN

No....I just...I'm, um, allergic to dogs.

COLIN runs out of the door.

SETH

We'll see you tomorrow, Colin!

SETH, THOMAS and WILLIAM turn to each other, smiling.

SETH

Looks like we've definitely got our man, boys.

21. INT. STREET - DAY

COLIN is running down the street, and then stops to have a breather. Just then -

MALE VOICE O/S

Col?

COLIN turns around sharply. We cut to reveal his brother JAKE.

JAKE

You okay?

COLIN

I'm fine. I'm-I'm fine.

JAKE

You're not...changing, are you?

COLIN

Nope.

JAKE

Then why were you running like that?

COLIN

What do you mean? I always run like that. I always -

JAKE

Col, just tell me!

COLIN

It's nothing.

JAKE looks at COLIN suspiciously, but then walks into his house.

22. DREAM - INT. WOODS - NIGHT

COLIN is running through the pinewoods. Something is chasing him.

Suddenly, we see a human-like figure running after COLIN, growling loudly.

CUT BACK TO: COLIN, running through the woods. He stops, and looks around frantically.

Just then -

- a MAN drops from above -

- COLIN screams -

COLIN

You!

THE MAN approaches COLIN, and grabs him by the neck -

- the MAN forces COLIN against a tree, and -

- bites COLIN on the neck -

- COLIN screams in pain -

23. INT. COLIN'S BEDROOM - NIGHT

COLIN's screaming echoes, jarring him out of his sleep. He gasps loudly. He looks to the clock: the time is 3:46am. He sighs, and then lies back.

24. EXT. SCHOOL GATE - MORNING

It's a rare sunny morning. Some students are walking into the school gate.

25. INT. CLASSROOM - MORNING

Students are walking into the room, and taking their seats. COLIN walks in, deep in thought, as he walks to his seat. MR BELFORD walks to COLIN's desk, placing a test paper in front of him.

MR BELFORD

Are you prepped, Colin?

COLIN

Oh...what is it again?

MR BELFORD looks at COLIN, concerned, and then points to the paper.

MR BELFORD

Physics. You're late, Seth.

He turns to see SETH walking into the classroom. THOMAS and WILLIAM aren't with him.

SETH

Sorry, sir. Family problems I had to deal with.

MR BELFORD

Alright then, here's your test paper and sit at the end of Colin's table.

SETH does so. COLIN automatically moves away a little. SETH notices COLIN'S reluctance.

SETH

You okay?

COLIN

Where are your friends?

SETH

Oh, they didn't feel very well. I think there's a bug going around -

26. INT. WOODS - DAY

SERIES OF SHOTS:

1) THOMAS throws a MAN against the tree

2) WILLIAM bites him.

27. INT. CLASSROOM - DAY

SETH

- they can barely move. But I just wanted to say sorry about yesterday. We didn't exactly come across as normal, did we? Hope we didn't scare you.

COLIN

It's okay. Don't worry about it -

MR BELFORD

Come on, you lot. These are important for your GCSES. Remember to answer all the questions and check your work when you've finished it for extra marks. And you must use a black pen, no blues ones.

We can hear a series of groans in the background, and people begin to ask for black pens.

MR BELFORD

For God's sake.

SETH

I bet I gave you a bad nightmare.

COLIN

What?

SETH

Just asking...did you?

COLIN pauses, then:

COLIN

I suppose...I did...have a little nightmare.

SETH smiles, and moves in towards COLIN, interested. They continue to whisper.

SETH

Really? Tell me about it.

COLIN

I was in this forest, getting chased by these vampires. I was close to getting out of there, then one got to me and -

SETH

Killed you?

COLIN

Yeah -

MR BELFORD

Seth! Colin! This isn't break!

COLIN AND SETH

Sorry, sir.

28. INT. WOODS - DAY

COLIN is cycling home through the woods.

FLASH SHOT OF a shadowed figure running past. COLIN is cycling through the woods, in the background. 

Something falls out of COLIN's bag. He stops, and goes to pick it up.

UNKNOWN P.O.V: The UNKNOWN PERSON is looking at COLIN as he picks up his book and puts it back in his bag.

Just then -

- we hear a stick crack -

- COLIN turns around quickly -

UNKNOWN P.O.V: COLIN turns around, and looks around. We can hear hoarse breathing -

COLIN

Who's there? Hello?

COLIN'S P.O.V: We can see a bush rustling.

COLIN walks closer to the bush.

Just then -

- a MAN jumps out of the bush -

- and grabs COLIN -

The man is covered in blood, his eyes are wild with fear and his clothes are torn. A sharp knife is held tightly in his hand.

MAN

You're...you're...not one of them, are you?

COLIN

What are you talking about?!

The MAN pulls him in front of him, his knife at the ready against his back.

MAN

Walk! WALK!

ANOTHER CREATURE'S P.O.V: COLIN is walking nervously as the MAN points his knife at him, looking around the woods nervously. The CREATURE runs then leaps onto the MAN, pulling him into the bushes off screen. He screams loudly.

COLIN ducks, covering his head, then looks around when the screaming stops and runs off!

29. INT. DEEP WOODS - DAY

COLIN runs into the DEEP WOODS. He looks back, and stops for a minute. He walks further until he falls down a steep hill. COLIN falls and rolls down the hill.

CU of COLIN's face against the ground. He gets up.

He looks from left to right. Eternal silence except for COLIN's breathing and typical forest sounds.

He walks forwards when -

he notices a dark liquid on the floor. He kneels down and touches it.

CU of his finger. It is stained red. It's blood!

COLIN raises his eyebrows, and looks around. COLIN looks up, noticing a long trail of blood, which eventually becomes pools of blood.

COLIN

What the -

And then -

- we see THOMAS and WILLIAM feeding off the MAN, who is now dead. THOMAS is feeding from the MAN'S wrist while WILLIAM is feeding from his neck.

COLIN turns away, and wretches.

CLOSER on COLIN, like this is hitting him - rapid, silent flashback shots of -

SERIES OF FLASHBACK SHOTS:

1) SETH, THOMAS and WILLIAM walk into the classroom.

2) THOMAS and WILLIAM run in front of HARRY, crouching as if to attack.

3) The MAN forces COLIN against a tree, bites COLIN on the neck and COLIN screams in pain -

Silence.

COLIN looks back at the vampires. Frozen with fear.

Hold, and then -

THOMAS

What's that smell?

WILLIAM

Look, it's the dog!

THOMAS

GET HIM!

COLIN steps back, realizing, gasps and runs away.

CUT TO: WILLIAM and THOMAS running after COLIN, growling -

30. EXT. WOODS - DAY

COLIN runs out of the forest onto a long road. He is running -

- running for his life! -

- COLIN running towards a car. The driver is sleeping, but COLIN knocks on the door hard, making the driver wake up. He winds the window down.

driver

What are you doing?

COLIN

You got to help me! Please!

DRIVER

I suppose you wanna make off with me money and all! Get lost, lad!

COLIN

Please!

COLIN turns to the road he had just come from -

- we then can see WILLIAM and THOMAS jump from the trees behind him, still chasing him! -

COLIN groans, then runs off!

The DRIVER shakes his head and leans back. SUDDENLY -

-SLAM!-

- WILLIAM jumps onto the hood of the car and runs over it -

- the DRIVER screams -

- THOMAS does the same and runs over it -

In the back mirror, we can see THOMAS and WILLIAM running away after COLIN. The DRIVER sighs with relief.

31. EXT. COLIN'S HOUSE - DAY

COLIN stops at the door of his house. He pulls out his keys.

CUT TO: THOMAS and WILLIAM running down the road.

CUT TO:

COLIN who tries to push the key in the keyhole, but keeps missing it -

- then the key finally goes in -

- he opens the door -

COLIN gasps, and then darts into his room.

WILLIAM

You're dead!

36. INT. COLIN’S BEDROOM - DAY

COLIN runs into the room and slams the door shut, leaning against it. WILLIAM and THOMAS run towards the door, and try to open the door.

SPLIT SCREEN: We can see THOMAS and WILLIAM equally pushing themselves against the door, trying to get in, as COLIN tries to push it back.

The door bursts open. COLIN is thrown onto his bed. WILLIAM and THOMAS walk in, smiling.

COLIN looks for somewhere to go, as WILLIAM and THOMAS approach him.

COLIN

Please...please...

THOMAS smiles, and grabs COLIN by the neck. In the background, we can see WILLIAM throwing books from the shelves and other objects to the floor.

THOMAS

I'm going to enjoy this!

WILLIAM

Save some for me, Tom.

THOMAS smiles, and then leans forward to bite COLIN, but then -

- we can hear laughter from outside...

37. EXT. COLIN'S HOUSE - DAY

KAREN and a young MAN walk into the driveway.

karen

Oh, my God! What happened to the door?!

38. INT. COLIN'S BEDROOM - DAY

THOMAS jumps back. WILLIAM runs to the window.

WILLIAM

Shit! Tom!

THOMAS growls to himself, and then turns to COLIN. He points at him.

THOMAS

Not a word!

WILLIAM and THOMAS disappear into thin air. COLIN gets up slowly, and looks in awe at where they disappeared.

39. INT. CORRIDOR - DAY

KAREN - their cousin - runs into the corridor, with the young man, around her age.

KAREN

Colin! Colin! What-what happened to your door? Colin!

COLIN walks out of his room.

COLIN

It's okay, Karen.

KAREN

Colin, the door's burst open! It's not okay!

COLIN

That was....me. I was doing karate in P.E and I-I got cocky.

KAREN

Cocky? Oh-oh, Colin you idiot! Mum's going to kill you!

COLIN

Who's this?

KAREN

Oh, this is Damien...my new boyfriend.

COLIN

Y'alright?

Damien

Yeah....sorry if I'm staring, it's just...you have an interesting aura.

 

 

KAREN

Damien's a psychic. He can tell a person by just looking at their auras! Amazing!

DAMIEN

Well, you don't have to put like that -

KAREN

No, you're the best psychic in the world. Now, Damien, why don't you look around for a bit. Come on, Colin, put the kettle on.

COLIN

But -

KAREN

Colin, I'll tell mum. Get Damien some tea.

DAMIEN

Oh, please. You don't have to do that. I'll do with water.

KAREN smiles, and then beckons COLIN to follow with her hand. COLIN walks out of the room, with KAREN, leaving DAMIEN alone. DAMIEN walks into the room, closing the door behind him, and picks up a picture of COLIN with KAREN and JAKE, then puts it into an inside pocket. He chuckles quietly, and then he looks around.

DAMIEN

You can come out now, you two.

No one comes out.

DAMIEN

Come on, I know Seth.

THOMAS and WILLIAM appear.

THOMAS

Why are you here?

DAMIEN

Seth called. He's my younger brother. Told me to come just in case you two screw up.

THOMAS

Seth asked for help?

WILLIAM

So he decided to call his big brother to come and help him.

DAMIEN lunges at WILLIAM, grabs his neck and throws him against the wall.

CU of WILLIAM and DAMIEN. WILLIAM growls with pain. THOMAS watches anxiously.

DAMIEN

Maybe you should watch who you are talking to. I'm not like Seth. I do not give second chances when someone fails me. Just remember that.

DAMIEN lets go of WILLIAM. We hear a knock on the door.

KAREN O/S

Damien, are you all right in there? I thought I heard something.

DAMIEN

I'm fine. I'll be down in a minute.

(to the boys)

I want you two to leave now.

THOMAS

What?

DAMIEN

Now!

THOMAS cowers, and then walks to the window.

40. EXT. COLIN'S HOUSE - DAY

THOMAS jumps out of the window.

41. INT. COLIN’S ROOM - DAY

42. EXT. COLIN'S HOUSE - DAY

WILLIAM jumps out of the window.

43. INT. COLIN'S ROOM - DAY

44. INT. HALLWAY - DAY

DAMIEN walks down the stairs when he is greeted by KAREN.

DAMIEN

Karen, I'm sorry. I need to dash. Urgent call at work.

 

COLIN

What, has someone's future drastically changed?

DAMIEN looks at COLIN for a second, but then he looks at KAREN, smiling.

KAREN

Are we still going to Pizza Hut tonight.

DAMIEN

Wouldn't miss it.

DAMIEN and KAREN kiss. COLIN averts his eyes. DAMIEN leaves.

KAREN

Well, you couldn't have been more welcoming.

COLIN

I'm sorry, he...he just makes me all suspicious, and I don't want you going out with some weirdo.

KAREN

I know enough about him to say he's not a weirdo. He's not you!

COLIN

Ha-ha! Is this serious?

KAREN

Of course, it is! Don't you say anything!

COLIN

Why? What do you - oh! Do you mean when you were with that girl and -

KAREN

Nothing!

45. INT. SCHOOL - DAY

A nice morning. COLIN pushes his crappy looking bike into the bike shed, then walks back out. He notices THOMAS and WILLIAM watching him from a good distance.

COLIN walks up to the main door  until he sees SETH leaning against a wall.

SETH

Morning, Col. What's up?

COLIN

We need to talk.

SETH looks at COLIN, confused.

SETH

All right.

COLIN looks around to see if anyone is looking or listening in.

COLIN

It's about...

COLIN looks over to THOMAS and WILLIAM. SETH looks at COLIN, wide eyed, almost angry. 

SETH

What....Thomas and William? What have they done?

COLIN

Okay, I was cycling home through the woods...then...I saw them sucking blood from a dead man. They were drinking blood. I think...I think they're...vampires.

SETH looks at COLIN, emotionless for a few seconds, and then begins to laugh. 

SETH

Vampires?

COLIN

Yeah, and I thought, since you know about them and that, you could just...check. Just, you know, talk to them...

SETH sighs, and then smiles.

SETH

Ok...I'll have a little chat with the 'Vampire boys'.

46. INT. WAREHOUSE - DAY

WILLIAM is launched at the wall by SETH, and slides down to the floor, groaning. SETH's white school shirt is covered in blood, as are WILLIAM's and THOMAS'S.

SETH

I gave you chances -

SETH grabs WILLIAM from the floor, and throws him across the room.

SETH

- and you blew them!

THOMAS runs at SETH. SETH but, with ease, grabs THOMAS and throws him on top of WILLIAM.

SETH

I GAVE YOU WARNINGS -

SETH grabs THOMAS, and throws him across the other side of the room.

SETH

- AND YOU BLEW THEM!

SETH stands over WILLIAM. He is bleeding terribly. WILLIAM spits blood out of his mouth. SETH kneels down and stabs his nails into WILLIAM'S back.

WILLIAM

AHHH!!! SETH! PLEASE! GIVE US ANOTHER CHANCE!

SETH

NO! NO MORE CHANCES! WHY DID THE WOLF TELL ME HE SAW YOU FEEDING! WHY, EH?

WILLIAM

We didn't know he was there!

SETH

NO! THIS IS THE LAST TIME!

SETH grabs WILLIAM by the neck and twists it to an impossible angle. WILLIAM gasps and lies dead. THOMAS stands up, almost at crying point. His face is heavily bruised. THOMAS falls to his knees.

THOMAS

WILL!

SETH walks towards THOMAS, and punches him! SETH stands above THOMAS and -

- pulls his arm back! -

- breaking it! -

THOMAS

AHHHH!!!!

SETH stands up, and kick THOMAS's side hard! THOMAS gets up and cradles his arm.

TEACHERS

I - I can't feel my arm!

SETH

Just count yourself lucky I didn't kill you! God, I hate being merciful. That should build a statue in my name.

(he looks down to THOMAS)

Hey!

SETH pulls THOMAS up and slaps THOMAS on the cheek to get his attention.

 

SETH

Hey! Now, dumbshit, why did you feed in daylight! Hey, you listening?

THOMAS

We, we were hungry.

SETH

Awww! You were hungry? You were hungry, were ya?

THOMAS

We didn't think anyone would go that far in the woods! It wasn't a public footpath!

SETH

It may not be a public footpath, but that doesn't stop the bloody public from walking through the woods, does it sunshine?

SETH throws THOMAS to the floor. THOMAS curls up, watching SETH fearfully.

THOMAS

You...you're not going to kill me?

SETH

No, not yet, but it's more fun to watch you mourn your stupid brother, but it's a good suggestion.

SETH walks to the window.

SETH

It's time to take matters into the family’s' hands.

47. EXT. SHOP - NIGHT

JAKE locks up the door of the shop, and then turns around. It is a silent night.

He looks around. The roads of bare, except for a lone car. JAKE nervously walks up the road, away from the car, constantly looking over his shoulder.

48. INT. CAR - NIGHT

SETH, BETH, DAMIEN and THOMAS, who is now wearing a sling and his bruises are now yellowing, are quietly sitting in the car.

DAMIEN

That him?

SETH

Yeah, that's the wolf's brother.

 

DAMIEN

Dosen't look like a hard target. He'll be easy.

BETH

What do you want with this freak?

SETH

Nothing at all. But we need a decoy, and Colin will come running to save him. He'll come to us.

DAMIEN

I could snatch him easy. With that cousin of his, I could nab him in a flash.

SETH

Yeah, but thanks to Thomas and his brother, it's going to be hard. He may be expecting an attack, so he'll be on guard. Now, we need to lure him in.

DAMIEN and SETH turn to BETH. BETH looks at both of them. Her eyes narrow.

BETH

No...no! You don't know where it's been!

SETH

Just do it. We're not asking you to have sex with him.

BETH

You're not the boss of me, Seth.

DAMIEN

No, but I am! And I say, go!

BETH gives him a long state, then opens the door and gets out.

DAMIEN

Nice one.

CUT TO:

49. INT. STREET - DAY

JAKE walks up the road. BETH is following him. JAKE turns around and sees her.

JAKE

I haven't got any money.

BETH

I'm not after your money. I'm after you.

JAKE

What?

BETH walks towards JAKE, smiling, until she is an arm's length away from him.

BETH

My name's Beth. You?

JAKE

J...Jake. Now, I-I need to be somewhere.

JAKE walks away. BETHANY makes an annoyed face, rolling her eyes, and then falls to the ground.

BETH

Ow! Oh god, ow!

JAKE runs back to her.

JAKE

Are you okay?

BETH

No, it's my ankle. I slipped. But it doesn't matter. I'll manage by myself.

JAKE

No, no! I'll help! What was your name again?

BETH

Beth.

JAKE

Do you need me to call anybody?

BETH

No, I -

DAMIEN's car comes around the corner, and stops next to BETH and JAKE. DAMIEN and SETH step out. SETH and DAMIEN run to BETH and JAKE.

DAMIEN

Beth! My God! We've been looking everywhere for you!

SETH

I'll get her a blanket!

SETH runs back to the car.

BETH

I was walking home when I saw Jake. I sprained my ankle and Jake helped.

DAMIEN turn to JAKE, smiling.

 

DAMIEN

Really?

DAMIEN just then does a vulcan death grip. JAKE is knocked out and falls into DAMIEN's arms.

DAMIEN

There, there. Nice and steady. Good work, Beth.

BETH is sorting out her hair and begins applying make up. She winks at DAMIEN.

THOMAS, sitting in the car, looking at what is happening fearfully.

DAMIEN places JAKE into the boot of their car, his hands and legs tied together with rope and his mouth covered with tape. DAMIEN slams the boot shut.

50. INT. COLIN'S BEDROOM - MORNING

COLIN wakes up, yawning. COLIN sits upright in his bed. COLIN sighs, and gets out of bed.

51. INT. HALLWAY - MORNING

COLIN, dressed in a dressing gown, walks down the stairs.

COLIN'S P.O.V: We can see a POLICEMAN, talking to KAREN, who is crying, in the kitchen.

The POLICEMAN walks out of the kitchen. COLIN watches the POLICEMAN go. He looks in confusion.

COLIN

What's going on?

KAREN O/S

Colin, can you come in the kitchen please?

COLIN walks into the kitchen.

52. INT. KITCHEN - MORNING

COLIN sits down at the kitchen table. KAREN is wiping tears. A box of tissues sits next to  her.

COLIN

Where's Damien?

KAREN

Jake didn't come home last night.

COLIN

What?

KAREN

I called his friends to check if he was at theirs but they said no.

COLIN

They didn't...

KAREN

What?

COLIN

Nothing...

53. INT. ROOM - MORNING

JAKE'S P.O.V: JAKE'S vision is blurred. He is bleeding heavily. He blinks to gain better vision.

It is still blurred. He can see figures moving. He breathes louder.

beth

Oh, I like watching humans sleep. It's interesting.

SETH

I can't wait to taste a werewolf's blood.

BETH

Better than your imported blood then?

THOMAS

I don't think we should do this.

We hear a slap.

SETH

Shut up! Or do you want to end up like your brother? Damien, are we going to drain him or what?

DAMIEN

I'd like to turn him into one of us. Just think of it, you two. Half vampire, half werewolf. Just think of the killings we can make.

We can see DAMIEN's blurred body walking towards JAKE. JAKE'S VISION begins to improve.

DAMIEN

He's awake. Hello, Jake.

JAKE

What do you want from me?

DAMIEN

Well, we want your werewolf side, not you, but unfortunately, we can't seem to split you apart. Beth...

BETHANY bares her fangs, as she walks towards him. JAKE tries to get away, but DAMIEN grabs him and holds him against the wall, holding his arm.

DAMIEN

Seth, grab his other arm!

SETH grabs his other arm as BETH bares JAKE'S NECK. JAKE tries to struggle.

DAMIEN

Thomas! Fool! Hold his legs!

BETH bites JAKE's neck. We can see JAKE'S legs scrambling, but THOMAS nervously walks to his legs and holds them down.

JAKE screams in pain, as BETH feeds on him. After a few seconds, DAMIEN pulls her back.

CU OF JAKE. All sound is cut off, except for JAKE'S HEARTBEAT and SLOW BREATHING. CAMERA follows JAKE as he lowers down to the floor.

CU of the vampire bite on his neck.

CU of JAKE's face. He is drowsy. Pale.

JAKE looks at his hands, amazed. He looks at himself all over.

DAMIEN

Jake? Can you hear me, Jake?

JAKE

Who are you?

DAMIEN

I'm your brother, remember? Damien? And this is Seth, and your sister Bethany.

JAKE

Of course, how could I forget?

SETH

You fell over and hit your head.

JAKE

Oh....well, thanks. It's great to have such a caring family.

DAMIEN

Good, now can you go on a errand on me?

JAKE

An errand? Yes.

DAMIEN pulls out the picture of COLIN and KAREN, with the image of JAKE scratched out. JAKE takes the photograph and examines it closely.

JAKE

Who's this?

DAMIEN

This boy we want you to find.

JAKE

Do you want me to kill him?

DAMIEN

No, I just want you to find him, and bring him back to this location.

DAMIEN hands him a paper.

DAMIEN (CONTD)

Got it? Now I want you to find him and bring him to this place. We'll be waiting for you there, okay?

JAKE nods.

54. INT. COLIN'S ROOM - MORNING

 

CU of a calendar telling us that it is June. Every day has a cross in it, except for the next few days, ending with the word 'Prom'. COLIN's hand moves into view, with a pen. He crosses off today's date.

CU of COLIN’s face.

CUT TO: COLIN, opening a wardrobe, now dressed in his school uniform.

A suit hangs in the wardrobe with polished shoes at the bottom. COLIN sighs.

There is a knock on the door.

JAKE

Hello? Anyone in there?

COLIN

Jake! Jake! Everyone's looking for you!

JAKE comes in. His face is pale, and there are obvious marks on his neck.

COLIN

Are you okay? You don't look very well. Are-are they bite marks -

 

JAKE

Yeah, they're, uh, lovebites. I had a wild night. I crashed at a friends'. It doesn't matter. Listen, I have a day off. Want me to drop you off at your school?

COLIN

Really? Er...thanks, Jake. I think I should probably call -

JAKE

No need for that. Come on.

COLIN

Oh, okay.

COLIN walks out of the room. JAKE smiles as he watches COLIN walk out.

55. EXT. HOUSE - DAY

COLIN walks towards the car, with JAKE walking behind.

COLIN

(turning to JAKE)

Are you sure you're okay?

JAKE

COLIN gets into the car.

56. INT. CAR - DAY

JAKE is driving. He quickly looks at COLIN. COLIN is talking away about something.

CU of JAKE'S EYES

CU of JAKE's hands as they tighten the wheel.

COLIN turns to JAKE.

COLIN

...Jake...Jake? Did you hear me?

JAKE

Oh, yeah, yeah.

COLIN

Then what was I talking about?

JAKE

Err...school?

COLIN

I was talking about Karen.

 

JAKE

About who?

COLIN

Karen, our cousin? Are you sure you're okay?

JAKE

Guess I'm just really hungover.

COLIN

Don't think you should be driving then.

JAKE

Colin, I said I'm fine.

JAKE turns a corner. He looks around, looking back.

COLIN

Jake, you've-you've gone the wrong way. Hey, Jake. Wrong way. It's over there –

 

COLIN only now looking around -

- to see JAKE's mouth, baring small fangs.

JAKE doesn't reply.

COLIN panics and rushes to unlock his seat belt. Just then -

SETH jumps out from behind COLIN's seat, and wraps his arm around his neck, and covers his mouth with his hand. COLIN cries for help.

57. INT. STREET - DAY

COLIN is dragged in by SETH and BETH.

BETH

Grab a chair!

BETH grabs a chair. COLIN is thrown into the chair and tied up.

COLIN

Jake! Jake!

DAMIEN enters the room, walking in with a cricket bat in his hand.

DAMIEN

We don't need this one anymore.

DAMIEN, again, does a Vulcan death grip, and JAKE falls to the floor. Knocked out.

COLIN

Jake!

BETH and SETH run over to JAKE's body, and turns his head, baring his neck. DAMIEN hisses them away, pointing the cricket bat at them threateningly.

DAMIEN

We're not going to kill him!

SETH

Why?!

THOMAS

People will find out!

SETH

They'll also find out about us if we let him go! And if you don't shut up, I'll stitch your lips together.

DAMIEN

I'll erase his memory, nice and easy, and we can leave him on a road somewhere. Make it look like an accident.

BETH is stroking COLIN's face, and leans her head against COLIN's shoulder.

BETH

What do we do with this one then?

DAMIEN smiles, and prepares to hit him with the cricket. COLIN looks at him fearfully. The end of the bat is bloody.

DAMIEN

Have fun!

61. INT. STREET - DAY

JAKE's body is lying against the curb, as if he had just fallen over onto his back and hit his head. There is a small gash on his head. He wakes up. A WOMAN runs over to him.

WOMAN

Are you alright?

JAKE

You...you what?

WOMAN

You've hit your head.

JAKE

No, I'm fine...just need to...be somewhere.

JAKE gets up, and runs off. The WOMAN watches.

62. INT. COLIN'S HOUSE - KITCHEN - DAY

KAREN is sitting at the table, sobbing. The doorbell rings. KAREN sighs, and walks out of the kitchen.

63. INT. DOOR - DAY

KAREN opens the door to reveal JAKE. KAREN gasps.

KAREN

Jake! Jake! Oh my God! I've been so worried about you! My mum had the police round and everything looking for you! Come into the living room.

JAKE is pushed into the living room.

64. INT. LIVING ROOM - DAY

JAKE sits down on the couch. KAREN sits in an armchair.

KAREN

What happened?

JAKE

I can't remember, Karen. But it's like...I know something bad is happening....and I can help to stop it. But I can't remember what it is.

KAREN

Well, I hope it hasn't got anything to do with Colin.

JAKE turns to KAREN, wide eyed.

JAKE

What did you say?

KAREN

Colin - what? Nothing bad has happened to him?

JAKE gets up from the couch immediately.

SERIES OF FLASHBACK SHOTS:

1) DAMIEN is standing over him, with the photo of COLIN.

DAMIEN

Right, Jake. I want you to go and get this kid.

2) DAMIEN pulls out of the picture of COLIN, with the image of JAKE and KAREN scratched out.

3) SETH jumps out from behind COLIN's seat, and wraps his arm around his neck, and covers his mouth with his hand. COLIN cries for help.

4) COLIN is thrown into a chair and tied up.

- JAKE comes back to reality!

JAKE

Colin's in danger!

65. INT. WAREHOUSE - DAY

COLIN is tied to the chair, his face covered in blood. DAMIEN, SETH and BETH walk around him, playfully, with THOMAS watching over.

SETH

Come on, doggy! Turn!

SETH digs his nails into COLIN's back. He screams loudly.

DAMIEN

Don't you want to change? Release the wolf!

COLIN begins to make wolf-like sounds. The VAMPIRES laughs, and imitate his wolf sounds.

SETH

Woo! That's it!

DAMIEN

Here it comes!

COLIN begins to shake his head from side to side, growling loudly.

66. EXT. COLIN'S HOUSE - DAY

JAKE runs out of the house, rummaging through his keys as he runs towards his car. KAREN follows him.

KAREN

What are you doing?

JAKE

I'm going to save him!

KAREN

I'm coming with you!

JAKE

No -

KAREN grabs JAKE, turns JAKE around, grabs him by the collar and slaps him.

KAREN

Listen to me, I am not going to stay here when Colin could be dead! Now, give me the fuckin' keys, and get in the fuckin' car! Fuckin' now!

JAKE looks at KAREN, shocked, and gives her the keys.

JAKE

Ok! Ok!

JAKE gets into the car.

67. INT. WAREHOUSE - DAY

SMACK! COLIN screams as he is smacked with the cricket bat. He spits out blood. DAMIEN laughs.

DAMIEN

Come on! Change faster!

COLIN begins to growl louder and louder.

68. INT. CAR - DAY

JAKE hides a gun under his jacket. JAKE looks at it in fear.

69. INT. WAREHOUSE - DAY

COLIN shakes from side to side, trying to break free. His werewolf fangs are beginning to show. The VAMPIRES laugh!

70. EXT. WAREHOUSE - DAY

JAKE looks out, and begins loading the gun with bullets. KAREN looks at him in shock, as JAKE gets out.

KAREN

Jake? What are you - is..is that a gun? Where did you get -

JAKE

Just stay there!

71. INT. WAREHOUSE - DAY

COLIN shakes more then suddenly stops. He looks up, his fangs showing. DAMIEN raises his bat to hit COLIN.

JAKE

Colin!

DAMIEN, SETH and BETH only now looking around -

- to see JAKE standing at the doorway, holding a gun.

SETH only smiles.

 

SETH

Look what the wolf dragged in.

BETH and SETH laugh.

DAMIEN

I thought you had him taken care of!

SETH

I did!

JAKE raises his gun.

SETH

Oh! A gun, eh? Come on then! Hit me with your best shot.

JAKE hesitates, then fires. SETH slaps his hands together, and the bullet drops from his hands. SETH and the others laughs.

JAKE throws the gun away, and he darts at SETH. SETH, again, smiles. SETH dives, rugby tackling JAKE against the wall. JAKE growls with pain and slides down the wall.

SETH picks JAKE up from the floor by his neck, and slams him into the wall.

JAKE

I'll...I'll kill you!

SETH

I'm the one holding your neck!

CUT TO:

THOMAS looking down at the gun JAKE thrown away. He looks up at SETH.

CUT BACK TO:

SETH and JAKE. SETH growls, then presses against JAKE's neck. JAKE chokes.

BANG! SETH's eyes widen. BLOOD trickles from his mouth.

BETH screams!

BETH

SETH!

WE CUT TO REVEAL -

- THOMAS holding the gun.

THOMAS

That's for my brother!

DAMIEN turns to THOMAS -

 

DAMIEN

Why, you little -

THOMAS points the gun at DAMIEN, then BETH, as he backs away towards the entrance, and leaves. DAMIEN and BETH run up to SETH.

DAMIEN

Seth!

JAKE backs away, but stares at the three.

DAMIEN is holding SETH in his arms, with BETH weeping. DAMIEN shakes SETH, who only looks at DAMIEN, quivering and coughing on blood.

BETH

No! No!

DAMIEN

Seth! No!

SETH chokes for a few seconds more, but then goes silent and limp in DAMIEN's arms. DAMIEN presses SETH against his chest, and then kisses his forehead, rocking slightly. BETH turns to JAKE.

BETH

YOOU!! YOU KILLED-YOU KILLED MY BROTHER!

DAMIEN and BETH turn to JAKE. DAMIEN is fuming, his teeth baring, and his hands clench into balls of fists. BETH cradles SETH's body. 

DAMIEN

You! You're going to die!

COLIN screams in pain.

COLIN

JAKE! GET OUT!

KAREN suddenly runs into the room. She screams.

JAKE

NO!

COLIN

GET HER OUT OF HERE!

KAREN

DAMIEN! DAMIEN??

DAMIEN sees KAREN and they hug.

 

DAMIEN

Karen! Look at the destruction they have done. They don't want us to be together!

KAREN

What?

JAKE

Karen! Karen, don't listen to him! He's a vampire! Look at what he's doing to Col!

KAREN looks at COLIN, who is struggling in his bonds, covered in blood. She gasps.

DAMIEN

Look at what they have done to my brother....do you really want cousins that kill? Stay with me! We can be happy.

DAMIEN outstretches his arm. KAREN looks at it, and begins to raise her hand. Then she lowers it, and looks at DAMIEN lovingly. She pushes DAMIEN against a wall and kisses his cheek.

KAREN

I love you, Damien -

We hear a click.

KAREN

- but no one hurts my family! Remember when I said my dad was a police officer?

DAMIEN looks down, and sees he has been handcuffed. JAKE grabs KAREN as they back away to the door. We can see that KAREN is crying as she walks away.

72. EXT. WAREHOUSE - DAY

JAKE and KAREN run out and slam the door shut. We can hear banging from the other side.

KAREN

Oh God! What about Colin? We've left him!

Just then, the banging stops.

KAREN looks through a crack. She can see COLIN, on the floor. She gasps. She hears the sound of crunching and cracking followed by a loud howl. COLIN screams.

73. INT. WAREHOUSE - DAY

WEREWOLF is unseen, but we can see the WEREWOLF's shadow getting bigger and bigger. DAMIEN looks at the WEREWOLF fearfully, as he tries to pull out of the handcuffs. DAMIEN turns to BETH.

BETH

Damien!

DAMIEN

Beth! Just get out of here! Get out of here now!

BETH

I love you!

DAMIEN

GO!

BETH sobs, but she backs away and runs off. Feeling completely helpless. He tries to move but the WEREWOLF stops him. DAMIEN then pulls at his handcuffs, and they finally break, but he realizes he is trapped. He has no choice.

DAMIEN

Come on then! Let's have a look at ya, you ugly bastard!

The WEREWOLF walks towards DAMIEN, who looks up at it as it gets closer.

DAMIEN

Come on....come on! COME ON, YOU BLOODY FREAK!

BETH backs away, as she watches the WEREWOLF. It lunges at DAMIEN.

We hear DAMIEN's screams!

Then -

- We see a head being thrown away. DAMIEN's headless body falls to the floor. BETH gasps, close to tears.

74. EXT. WAREHOUSE - DAY

KAREN'S P.O.V: The WEREWOLF walks towards BETH, whimpering and fearful, until she is out of view. She screams! KAREN pulls open the door.

jake

Karen! What are you doing?!

75. INT. WAREHOUSE - DAY

KAREN stops at the door.

KAREN

Let me help you!

BETH looks at KAREN in fear. She doesn't know what to do. JAKE comes in.

jake

Karen, come on!

KAREN

let me help you!

WEREWOLF'S P.O.V: The WEREWOLF turns to KAREN. KAREN gasps, as the WEREWOLF approaches her.

KAREN (contd)

COME ON!

BETH still only looks. JAKE pushes KAREN back outside, and then slams the door shut. BETH gasps as the WEREWOLF turns to her off screen. She looks around fearfully, then -

- sees an open window! -

76. EXT. WAREHOUSE - DAY

KAREN storms out, while JAKE holds the door.

KAREN

Why couldn't we save her?

JAKE

If you stayed in there, you could have been killed!

KAREN

That was a person in there!

JAKE

Yes! Colin!

KAREN

That wasn't Colin! I've just witnessed a...thing tearing a person's head off! Colin wouldn't do that! Who are you to say who's a person or who's not?

JAKE

I'm not saying that -

KAREN

There was a family in there! Don't tell me you didn't see that too! It’s ironic! I say to him ‘no one hurts my family’ yet we just murdered his brother!

JAKE looks at her guiltily. JAKE takes a deep breath in, and walks into the warehouse again.

77. INT. WAREHOUSE - DAY

JAKE slowly opens the door and creeps around the room. We can see the WEREWOLF, his back to JAKE, in the corner feeding on what seems to be DAMIEN's decapitated body. JAKE picks up a metal pole to defend himself with.

JAKE looks around for BETH -

 

78. ROAD - DAY

BETH is running down the road, whimpering and crying.

79. INT. WAREHOUSE - DAY

JAKE sighs, then sees an open door. He looks at it for a moment with annoyance. JAKE then looks back to the WEREWOLF, who is still eating. JAKE walks but then -

JAKE drops the metal pole -

- THE WEREWOLF turns to JAKE! -

- JAKE backs up against the wall, breathing heavily -

- the WEREWOLF approaches JAKE -

- and smells him now -

- JAKE is wide-eyed with fear -

- the WEREWOLF growls but -

80. EXT. WAREHOUSE - DAY

JAKE is launched out of the warehouse, landing hard on the concrete. KAREN helps him!

KAREN

Jake! Jake! What happened?

JAKE

I don't know. It was...it was like he recognised me.

KAREN

What?

JAKE

The door!

JAKE gets up and shuts the door. JAKE sighs.

KAREN

Did you get her?

JAKE

No...she was gone.

KAREN

Oh...so...what is he?

JAKE

It's...hard to explain.

KAREN

Shut up with the hard to explain crap! Tell me!

 

JAKE

Colin didn't want me to tell you.

KAREN

Why? Just tell me.

A pause. JAKE sighs, but then:

JAKE

Ok...Colin...he's...he's a...were..wolf.

KAREN

A...werewolf?

JAKE nods.

KAREN

Oh, come on, this is insane.

JAKE

Say what you want. It's true.

KAREN

I just want to know why you didn't tell me.

JAKE

Colin wanted to keep it secret. He didn't want anyone in any danger.

KAREN

Oh, don't give me all that! What are we going with him?

JAKE

We just have to wait, I think. Don't think it'll take long.

KAREN

Ok.

FADE OUT:

FADE IN:

SUPERIMPOSE CAPTAIN: A DAY LATER...

81. INT. COLIN’S BEDROOM - DAY

COLIN's vision is blurred. A figure is sitting on the end of the bed. The vision begins to get better. It is KAREN.

KAREN

Hey, there.

COLIN sits upright on his bed.

JAKE is leaning against the doorframe, with a cup of tea in his hand. COLIN suddenly jumps up.

COLIN

Karen! What you saw -

JAKE

It's okay, Col. She knows.

COLIN looks at JAKE in worry.

COLIN

But Jake, I -

KAREN

Can you leave us alone for a bit, Jake?

JAKE

Sure.

JAKE leaves the room.

KAREN

So...werewolf, eh?

COLIN

Yeah...

KAREN

What's it like?

COLIN

It's...it's the worst pain you could ever feel.

KAREN

I feel like a terrible person, not knowing this sooner.

COLIN

No, don't feel like that.

KAREN

How long have you...been like this?

COLIN

Since I was born..., but the transformations started when I was twelve. It was scary. I didn't know what was going on. It didn't feel natural. But, you get used to it.

KAREN

I could never get used to that. What about Jake? Were those bites on his neck? What's he?

COLIN

He's complicated.

 

KAREN

I can keep up.

COLIN

Well, couple of years ago, a werewolf was kidnapping children. Me and Jake stopped them, but Jake was scratched, then...he was bitten by vampires.

KAREN

Woah, half, then eh? That must be a nightmare.

COLIN

Jake can handle anything. Oh...sorry about Damien. I know how much he meant to you.

KAREN looks away sadly, and then produces a smile.

KAREN

It's okay. He was never the adventurous type anyway.

COLIN

Yeah. Wait, what's the day today?

KAREN

Thursday.

COLIN jumps out of the bed.

COLIN

Oh, crap! The prom's tonight! I'm meant to have a date!

COLIN looks to the clock. It says its 15:50.

COLIN

The prom's at eight, and I haven't got a date and -

KAREN

Calm down, calm down. I'll get you with one of my friends. She owes me.

COLIN

Really?

82. EXT. GOLF CLUB - NIGHT

COLIN and SUMMER, a drop dead gorgeous girl in a lovely prom dress, both are looking nervous as they walk towards the entrance. COLIN looks completely out of place next to SUMMER.

83. INT. PROM – GOLF CLUB - NIGHT

Other students are dancing. Everyone's having a good time!

CUT TO:

The entrance of the GOLF CLUB.

COLIN and SUMMER walk into the club. COLIN is trying to avoid attention while SUMMER waves at friends off screen.

HARRY walks up to COLIN, smiling with SANDRA at his side.

HARRY

You see? I told you you'd find a date.

SANDRA

You look pretty, Summer.

SUMMER

Thank you, you too.

HARRY

So, how did you meet? Haven't you two together before.

A short pause. COLIN and SUMMER look at each other, in confusion.

COLIN

I am going to get a drink. Summer, would you like a drink?

SUMMER

Yes, yes!

COLIN walks away. SUMMER smiles at him.

84. INT. PROM - FOOD TABLE - NIGHT

COLIN walks over to the beverages. He leans against the table, sighing. This isn't going as he planned. He turns around -

- to see THOMAS, who still has a bruised face and sling, in a prom suit, looking at him in thought.

COLIN

Thomas?

THOMAS

I'm not going to kill you, wolf boy. You're not worth my effort.

COLIN

Oh, well, what are you doing here then?

THOMAS

Well...to thank you.

COLIN

Why? I didn't do anything.

THOMAS

You gave me the opportunity...to avenge my brother.

 

COLIN

Well, you're...you're welcome. Are you staying for the dance?

THOMAS

No. Got stuff to do.

THOMAS smiles, and turns away into the crowd. SUMMER comes out of the crowd, and pulls him into the crowd.

85. INT. PROM - DANCE FLOOR - NIGHT

COLIN is being dragged through the crowd by SUMMER, until she stops. They are in the middle of the dance floor.

COLIN and SUMMER dance. COLIN smiles nervously as they do this.

COLIN

I'm not good at dancing.

SUMMER

What?

COLIN

(louder)

I said I'm not good at dancing.

SUMMER

It's okay. I'll just have to teach you.

COLIN

You know what I expected.

SUMMER

What did you expect?

COLIN

Well, you know, someone -

SUMMER

- bitchy?

COLIN laughs nervously.

COLIN

Well, not bitchy, I was actually going to say err -

HARRY interrupts, dancing idiotically next to COLIN with SANDRA. COLIN laughs, baring a fake smile.

SANDRA

You seem like a nice guy.

COLIN

You should see me on a full moon.

SUMMER laughs.

SUMMER

So, are you going to kiss me?

COLIN

(surprised)

Well, I...

SUMMER smiles, and then closes in on COLIN, who leans in nervously. They kiss.

FADE OUT:

FADE IN:

86. EXT. GOLF CLUB - NIGHT

A lone student walk out of the club. The figure turns around, and appears to be BETH, who has tear marks down her cheeks.

87. INT. STREET - NIGHT

BETH is walking down the street, thinking and weeping quietly. BETH turns to the CAMERA, and smiles.
