EXT. CHICAGO, IL., COUNTRY FIELD -- LATE AFTERNOON
SCREEN READS: 1930'S.
FIORI, FRANKIE, TOMMY, AND ROBERT are filthy-mouthed Italian mobsters
wearing suits and derby hats. They all stand around a dirt hole.
JOHNNY AND JOEY, are obesely fat, Italian mobsters in suits. They
stand in the dirt hole digging with shovels.
A bloody beaten man lies twitching on a tarp next to the hole. Joey
stops digging and wipes sweat off of his forehead. Fiori slaps him.
Who the fuck told'cha ta stop?
Isn't this deep enough?
No, ya fat fuck it ain't deep enough.
Geez relax Fiori.
Fiori gets angry and looks like he's going to kick Joey in his face,
but instead kicks a pile of dirt into his face.
Ahh! My eyes.
What'cha do that for Fiori?
Joey rubs the dirt from his eyes. The bloody man on the tarp is seen
moving his pulverized, crushed, pancake-looking hand towards Fiori's
(to Joey and Johnny)
You two hurry up. You're almost done.
Frankie, you sure this was a smart move?
I'm doing us a favor taking care of this
prick. He didn't wanna listen to me before,
well he's listenin' now ain't he.
Fiori bends down to the bloody man and spits in his face.
It's too late for him to listen now.
Fiori now notices the bloody man's pancake-looking hand touching
Mothafucka! You fucking ginny cocksucker!
Fiori stomps his foot on the bloody man's face several times.
C'mon, let'em suffer in peace will ya.
These fuckin' shoes cost fifty fuckin'
bucks- top of the line. This mothafucka's
still puttin' his hands where they don't
Fiori takes a large tenderizer mallet from Robert. He then starts
pulverizing the bloody man's already pulverized hand.
There! There! You like it? You fuckin' like
The bloody man goes to scream, but just gargles his own blood.
Frankie now points a gun to the bloody man's chest and shoots. Blood
splatters all over Joey and Johnny's faces who are still standing
in the hole.
What the fuck'cha kill'em for?
Fuckin' waste is all it is.
I'm hittin' somethin'.
Joey is now seen stabbing his shovel into something in the ground.
Johnny now stabs at it as well.
We see the shovels stabbing at black dirt uncovering a thick chain,
which is caked in dirt.
What is it?
Keep digging fatass!
What did you say to me?
I said hold on- geez.
Joey and Johnny continue digging at opposite ends of the hole. The
shovels are heard scraping against something. The others look in the
Probably just a rock, you fuckin' dumbass.
It ain't no rock.
Joey and Johnny stop digging. Johnny bends down and wipes dirt off of
a wood surface.
It's a box.
Maybe it's a treasure.
Pull it out.
Wouldn't that be some shit if it was. We'd
be gettin' lucky twice in one day- it's
like a blessin'.
Joey and Johnny lift the box out of the hole and set it down next to
the bloody man on the tarp. Everyone looks at it. Frankie grabs a
shovel and tries breaking the chain apart.
Look how old it is.
There's gotta be somethin' inside.
What if there ain't no treasure inside-
nothin'. Nothin' but a brittle piece of
I'd be fuckin' pissed.
I'd fuckin' whack this dumbass for findin'
the fuckin' thing and gettin' my hopes up.
Fiori slaps Joey on his head really hard. Frankie restrictively
laughs. Joey being twice the size of Fiori just cowers away from him.
Yeah, but what if it ain't just a piece of
paper, but a bond or a deed for like a
Are you fuckin' serious? This thing's older
than your mutha's bush. They didn't have
no fuckin' money bonds back then!
Oh, but what if it's a deed to someone's
You fuckin' dumbass. Deed to what? A fuckin'
cottage or teepee or some shit. Somethin'
that ain't even here no more!
So, if it's on paper, it's still good right?
Maybe we could still own the land. We could
go inside right now and tell that accountant
we own his land. It's like a patent, and we
Fiori slaps Johnny on the back of his head.
Quit talkin! You're fuckin' stupid. This
chest is probably so old it goes back to
the pilgrims. Whatever agreement they
had for this land- handshakes, trading
turkeys, whateva the fuck they did, times
have changed ya prick. We've had wars and
everything else since. Fuckin' stupid.
No, what I was meanin' is if the piece of
paper is like a map- a map TO a treasure
Fuck that. I ain't gonna go round digging
no more. The fuckers that buried this
should'a left the treasure here. I don't
play no hide and go seek.
But you didn't do no digging. Me and Joey
Fiori slaps Johnny on the back of his head, then walks over to Joey
and slaps him too just for the hell of it. A noise is heard of the
chain being broken by Frankie.
Frankie opens the chest. There is a skeleton of a man inside.
Fuck! It figures.
Hey, we found King Tut.
Fuck King Tut, throw him back in the hole.
You crazy? Mueseums pay big bucks for mummies.
The skeleton has missing chunks of bone in various areas including
the skull, and there are puncture holes everywhere as if something
took bites from this person.
Whoever did this, sure did a number on this
Look at all the holes in his bones.
They look like bite marks. Look at the skull.
Looks like a monster bit half of his skull
Frankie pulls something from one of the holes in the skeleton, and
hands it to Robert. It is a solid sharp piece of iron in the shape
of a tooth.
Here. Monsters don't have iron teeth.
Probably some wiseguy like us, did a number
on this guy. Really old wiseguys- our
Robert looks curiously at the piece of iron. Fiori grabs it from him
and looks at it.
This ain't right. Something's wrong.
Fuck you talkin' about?
Those are real bite marks from somethin'-
look at em'.
We ain't gotta look at the marks. Frankie
said they ain't bite marks...Frankie
knows about skeletons...Frankie knows
about bodies...So, what Frankie says...
FIORI (CONT'D, O.S.)
Frankie removes a cloth from the skeleton's hands and sees a golden,
square, puzzle box gripped tightly by the bodies bony fingers.
Frankie takes the box and looks at it in awe not paying attention
to anyone else.
Yeah...that's right...I know about bodies...
but I dunno about this.
Frankie stands and gazes closely at the puzzle box like he was in a
trance. The others crowd around him looking at it too.
Is it gold?
We're fuckin' rich. If it ain't gold, then
a mueseum will buy it right?
Johnny, Joey finish up.
Frankie and Robert walk away with the chest.
Hurry up flamers.
Johnny and Joey pick up the tarp with the bloody man's body and they
drop it into the hole.
INT. FARMHOUSE, KITCHEN -- NIGHT
A family sits quietly eating dinner. RODGE, is the father. MARIA, is
the mother, and ROGER, is an eight-year-old boy. Rodge finishes
chewing a mouthful of food and reaches to grab a plate of bread.
A noisy chewing sound is heard. Rodge looks over at Maria, but she
isn't making the noise. Rodge looks over at Roger, but he isn't
making the chewing noises either. Rodge still looks at Roger as if
he was responsible.
Rodge takes another bite of food. The chewing noise is heard again.
Rodge looks over at Roger again, but Roger is drinking his milk.
I thought I told you to stop that.
Roger puts down his milk and wipes his milk mustache.
Stop drinking milk?
Don't get wise.
Rodge continues eating. Maria's P.O.V. looks at Roger sneaking a
piece of bread onto his lap. The noisy, chewing sound is heard again.
P.O.V. shows cute, baby opossums chewing pieces of bread. They all
nestle on the boy's lap as if he were their mother.
RODGE (CONT'D, O.S.)
What's he supposed to do Rodge?
They're orphans and we got to feed them, but
not at the damn table. Those little chompin'
noises are really annoying.
Several of the opossums climb up Roger's shirt and look at his dad
as they sniff around at the rest of the food on the table.
But they think I'm their mommy.
A car is heard pulling up on a gravel driveway outside. Maria looks
at Rodge curiously.
Who could that be?
Maria looks out the window.
They were just here two weeks ago. Are they
here for the books?
They can't be.
You know Rodge, I don't want to be associated
with these people. They think they can come
and go when they please- order us around.
Just tell them to go someplace else.
It's not that easy Maria.
Maria grabs some plates of food and leaves the room angry.
Three years of this Rodge. I've had enough.
If you're too scared to say something then I
No you won't!
INT. FARMHOUSE, DEN -- NIGHT
Rodge sits at a desk. Robert walks over and places a stack of
notebooks next to him. Rodge looks up at Robert with a miserable look.
Big week huh?
Like you wouldn't believe. Just hurry and
get'em done. And tell that kid a'yers ta'
bring us some lemonade.
Rodge doesn't answer. Robert then gets close to Rodge's ear and
yells at him.
EXT. BARN -- NIGHT
Roger is carrying glasses of lemonade in a wooden crate out to the
Roger sets the crate of lemonade on a bale of hay by all the men.
Everyone grabs a glass exept for Frankie who is sitting on another
bale of hay caressing the puzzle box with his finger.
Roger begins to walk away, but Fiori trips him and he falls.
Have a nice trip kid?
What was that kid? You got some balls talkin'
to me like that.
I don't care who you are.
You don't care huh? I think you do. And if
you don't then I'm sure your parents care.
How would you like to wake up one mornin'
seein em' dead, huh?
Roger stays quiet and walks away.
FIORI (CONT'D, O.S.)
That's what I thought you little lardass.
Joey looks at Fiori confused since the boy is nothing but skin and
Fiori that kid ain't fat.
Ya'right Joey, I was thinking about you when
I said it- lardass.
INT. FARMHOUSE, KITCHEN -- NIGHT -- ELSEWHERE
Maria is talking on the phone.
If you could just get the message to Mr.
Stone I would be grateful.
Maria listens to the other person talk.
I just don't want to be involved any longer-
I have a child.
Maria listens to the other person talk again.
No, I don't care how much. Please, can you
just ask him if he could find another
accountant to do his books. We put in three
years, I think we have the right to stop.
EXT. BARN -- NIGHT -- LATER
Roger is walking back over by the barn kicking a rock from boredom.
There are men screaming in pain. Chains are heard thrown around, and
there are scary Werewolf-like growls and munching sounds.
Roger could go to the end of the barn where the entrance is shining
strange lights from but is too terrified of the sounds.
Roger sits with his back to the barn and just listens to all the men
moaning and screaming. He also is hearing an unfamiliar man's voice.
More chains are heard rattling. There is more screaming. There are
horrible flesh tearing sounds. Roger sits and waits looking more
confused than terrified.
All the screams, chains, and voices cease instantly. There aren't
anymore sounds coming from the barn.
Roger finally gets up and walks towards the barn entrance.
INT. BARN -- NIGHT
Roger slowly walks into the barn. Nobody is in the barn. There are
large pools of blood across the barn floor.
They're all gone. How could they just vanish?
Roger just walks around the barn curious to what happend. He notices
something shining over on a bale of hay. The puzzle box catches his
eye as it sits with a glare of moonlight, shining through a window,
reflecting off of it.
Roger walks over to the puzzle box, picks it up, and gazes at it.
INT. FARMHOUSE, BEDROOM -- NIGHT
Roger is sleeping in his bed. Maria walks into the dark room and sits
beside him tucking him in.
Were they mean to you?
Don't worry, I don't think they'll be around
Maria looks on a dresser by an opened window and sees the puzzle box
sitting in a ray of moonlight.
I found it.
Maria walks to the box, picks it up, and gazes at it, but then just
puts it back in the beam of light thinking it's just another toy.
Pretty wierd. Get some sleep. I have to see
what else they're gonna need before I turn in.
But they're gone.
They already left? Are you sure?
Yeah, they just disappeared.
Disappeared huh? What do you want for
I don't care.
Maria leaves the room. Roger looks under the covers and sees all the
baby opossums cuddling up next to him. Roger then rests his head in
the pillow and looks over at the puzzle box sitting in the ray of
INT. FARMHOUSE, BEDROOM -- DAY
Roger wakes up from hearing a bunch of arguing in the kitchen.
Roger's P.O.V. first notices the puzzle box over on his dresser
sitting in a ray of sunlight reflecting patterns all over his walls.
Roger gets out of bed not waking his baby opossums.
INT. FARMHOUSE, KITCHEN -- DAY
Roger walks into the kitchen and sees his mom and dad tied up in
PETE, is a middle-aged mobster in a suit, and has scars across his
face. Pete grabs Roger and throws him against the wall.
I thought you said he was at his Aunt's-
Pete goes and slaps Maria across her face really hard.
Roger they didn't leave last night- their
car is still outside. Tell us what happend.
GEORGY, is a tall, stocky mobster with a slight hunch. He wears an
eyepatch and has burns across his face. Georgy now slaps Maria across
REX, AND ROCCO are identical twins in suits with derby hats on, and
they are wearing leather gloves. They both kneel next to Roger on
So kid, you wanna tell us what happend to
the other guys that were here.
Before Roger speaks Rex punches him in the face leaving his nose
Georgy is heard beating Rodge.
By the way kid, that's to remind you to
tell us the truth, so...
I don't know what happend. I heard them
screaming. I was hearing strange noises,
like monsters or something. When they went
in the barn they were gone- they
Rex now punches Roger in his face.
Ain't good enough kid. You think this is
some kind of game? We ain't playin'.
I could do this all night kid. Actually,
I would prefer it.
You're gonna look like a completely
Roger looks away from Rex and Rocco angrily. Roger looks up at Pete
while wiping blood from his busted nose.
I told you what happend.
Rex punches Roger in his face again, then Rocco punches him from the
other side of his face. A trail of blood is now falling down a large
open cut on Roger's face.
Ya gonna be like a boxin' champ- all busted
Roger just sits on the floor too weak to move. Rocco and Rex stand
up and leave him.
Let em' regain his strength before round
Please, he's telling the truth. We went to
bed thinking they had left. Maybe they went
someplace on foot.
Or maybe you two took em' someplace like out
in those woods, in a dirt hole let's say.
Got the up-n-up on em'.
You think we killed them? How would we be
able to do that?
Tell us? Where did those large pools of blood
come from in your barn?
Yeah, and no sign of Frankie or anyone else.
There's blood in the barn?
Pete just quietly looks at Maria then snaps his fingers. Georgy unties
her and pulls her by her hair.
INT. BARN -- DAY
MURDER SEQUENCE: 40 FRAMES OVER JERRY VALE'S "LOVE ME THE WAY I
Maria is thrown to the ground in a large pool of blood. She continues
whining and crying.
See this? Don't you play stupid bitch!
I don't know where this came from, I swear.
Georgy kicks Maria in the head. She falls face down on the soft,
bloody barn floor. Georgy now steps on her head pushing it into the
I swear I don't know.
Georgy continues pushing her head further into the floor with his
foot. There is so much blood on the floor it starts going into her
mouth. Georgy is drowning her in the blood on the barn floor.
Ya think we were born yesterday? Ya just
called us complainin' about these guys
bein' over here all the time. So, Mr.
Stone say's he'll do what he could
do. You couldn't wait could ya'? Ya' got
rid of em' yerself.
Maria raises her head long enough to shout a few words.
You fuckin' assholes, I'll fuckin' kill-
Georgy stomps her head into the blood.
Wrong thing to say bitch! You ain't gonna
do to us what you did to them.
Maybe she didn't do it? Maybe it was her
Then we'll send him a message.
Pete points a gun at her head.
INT. FARMHOUSE, KITCHEN -- DAY
The gunshot is heard in the kitchen. Rodge has duct tape across his
mouth. He puts his head down and cries knowing his wife was shot.
Roger sits on the floor too weak to cry.
Hear that Rodge? There goes the old bitch.
INT. FARMHOUSE, KITCHEN -- DAY -- LATER
A constant beating of fists to Rodge's face is seen. Roger just
cries not being able to help his father.
Roger's P.O.V. looks across the kitchen floor and sees a baby opossum
come out of his bedroom and scurry across the floor. The opossum
looks around confused not knowing where Roger, (its mommy), is. Roger
now musters up some energy to start talking, so the opossum can find
Leave my dad alone...please...please.
The opossum now moves towards Roger's voice. It runs past the large
men's feet without them noticing. The opossum comes to a halt looking
around and sniffing again.
Please...leave him alone...we told you-
Rocco walks over to Roger and punches him in his already bruised face.
Are you deaf or somethin'?
Roger sees the opossum run more, but then stop. Roger begins to
speak again even though he knows he'll get hit again.
We didn't do anything...they just disappeared.
The opossum runs all the way to Roger finally finding its way.
Roger quickly puts it safely in the back of his pants. Rocco comes
over and punches Roger again in the face.
Kid, I asked you if you were deaf?
They didn't just disappear kid, they ain't
What if he's right?
Roger sees another opossum come out of his room, then another, and
another. They walk into the kitchen sniffing around. They now all
split up different ways sniffing the mobsters' shoes. Quickly Roger
starts talking again fearing the opossums will be seen or get
Yeah...what if I'm right? You guys can't
stay here anymore anyways...you're stinkin'
up the place.
The opossums all run together towards Roger.
Rex grabs a pencil off the table, goes over to Roger and shoves it
into his ear.
There! Now you're deaf!
Roger pulls the pencil out of his bloody ear and cries. The opossums
come to him finally. Still in pain, Roger grabs all the opossums and
stashes them behind his back.
What if it was the Vragilli mob?
Yeah. You know what- I forgot about that. It
don't really matter though, we can still have
some fun with these two. We ain't gotta be in
town till next week- so, we'll just shack up
her until then.
With the nerve this kid's got we should
He just needs his fuckin' ass kicked.
Ain't that the truth.
Roger is holding his ear in pain.
Beat me all you want you pansies just leave
my dad alone.
Why? You wanna take his beatin's for him?
What does it matter? How much worse can
You shouldnt'a said that kid, cause Georgy
really loves a challenge.
Georgy smiles at Roger.
You hear that Rodgey? The kid's gonna take
the old man's beatin's- how proud you must
INT. BEDROOM -- NIGHT
Roger is laying in his bed.
Hey kid, time ta' eat!
Roger sits up and quickly checks on his opossums, who are hidden in
a pillowcase that's next to his other pillows.
Do I gotta come in there?
INT. KITCHEN -- NIGHT
Roger is sitting at the table with all the mobsters. Rodge is sitting
bound and beaten in between Rex and Rocco. Rodge is barely concious.
Rex and Rocco are taking turns feeding him like a child.
Come on eat up. You need your energy.
Here comes the airplane.
Pete is sitting and eating a steak dinner while amusingly watching
Rex and Rocco. Georgy walks by and drops a plate with a steak on it
in front of Roger.
Roger takes a bite out of his steak slowly from the painful bruises
across his cheek. Roger looks over at Pete who watches Rex and Rocco
Rocco puts a spoon to Rodge's mouth, but Rodge doesn't open. Rocco
then forces the spoon in Rodge's mouth. The food just pours out his
mouth and down his chin.
Rocco punches Rodge in the face knocking him unconcious.
Dammit Rocco. He's gonna be out for two
hours now, at least.
So- we still got the kid.
Why's this kid so cooperative anyways?
Ya almost done eatin' kid? You still got a
few more bites of steak left- eat up.
He even already ate all his bread.
Finish up those vegetables too- lotta
vitamin C in those fuckin' things- they
Roger just looks down at his plate and eats slowly.
INT. KITCHEN -- NIGHT -- LATER
Roger has finished eating and has built up his strength again. He sits
in a chair while Rex and Rocco take turns punching him in the arm as
hard as they can. Roger is in pain, but keeps taking the beating.
While Roger is distracted by the pain in his bruised arm, Rex and
Rocco move out of the way while Georgy sneaks from behind carrying
a large iron pan.
GEORGY SWINGS THE IRON POT LIKE A BASEBALL BAT INTO ROGER'S BRUISED
ARM WITHOUT WARNING.
Roger falls from his chair screaming. As he tries to move his arm we
hear the crunching sound of bone grinding together. Rocco now holds
his foot on top of Roger's head holding him still.
Boiling water is now poured all over Roger's neck and into his bloody
Here's a bath kid...you're the one stinkin'
up the place.
INT. BEDROOM -- NIGHT
The mobsters are seen playing cards through the doorway. Rodge is
still tied up in one of the chairs.
Roger stumbles slowly to his bed afraid to touch the pussing sores
and burns covering his swollen neck.
Roger lies on his pillow in pain. He forces himself to grab hidden
bread pieces and put them into the pillowcase with the opossums.
INT. KITCHEN -- NIGHT -- LATER
Roger is standing in the quiet kitchen with his pillowcase. He walks
towards his father keeping his neck stiff not wanting to disturb the
blistered, bleeding burns on his neck. He nudges his dad.
One of the mobsters' snores is heard suddenly from another room.
Dad...come on dad...let's go.
Rodge musters up the energy to raise his good arm and wave it as
if he was motioning for his son to leave without him.
No dad...I'm not leaving without you-
Roger tries helping his father up, but Rodge just moans in pain
Shut the hell up!
Roger sneaks back into his room.
INT. KITCHEN -- FOLLOWING NIGHT
Roger is sitting at the table eating with all the mobsters as they
wait to beat him more.
Look at this!
Roger notices Rex has just picked up one of his opossums up by its
tail. Another opossum is seen leaving Roger's room. Rocco picks that
one up by its tail.
Roger gets up, but is shoved back in his chair and punched by
These must be his pets.
Rex observes the hanging opossum.
What are they- rats?
They're opossums dumbass.
Ugly fuckin' things.
Let's go have some fun with'em.
Leave them alone- beat me instead.
Rex and Rocco leave outside with the opossums. Georgy grabs Roger by
his neck firmly, busting open postules. Georgy throws Roger in his
room on the floor.
You can't come.
Georgy leaves. Roger looks out his window and sees Rex and Rocco
laughing going towards the barn.
Roger lies on his bed crying helplessly. He looks over on his dresser
and sees the puzzle box catching his eye with a ray of moonlight
shining from it.
EXT. BARN -- NIGHT
Roger's P.O.V. walks into the barn and sees the mobsters scaring
the opossums by making them run back and forth between their stomping
feet. The mobsters notice Roger. Rex picks up the opossums by their
tails as they growl and hiss. Rex walks over to Roger and kneels
Ohhh..I'm so sorry...are these your wittle
bitty babies I got here-
Roger swings the puzzle box out from behind his back and smashes it
into Rex's head. Rex falls over bleeding. Rocco knocks Roger to the
ground. Roger's P.O.V. watches the scared opossums run towards the
forest. Roger smiles joyously.
INT. ROGER'S ROOM -- NIGHT
Roger is thrown in his room again.
Just wait till I get my hands on you
Georgy leaves. Roger lies in his bed massaging the blood across the
Roger thinks of the little opossums running for their lives towards
BACK TO SCENE:
Roger smiles while still massaging the puzzle box.
INT. KITCHEN -- FOLLOWING NIGHT
Roger sits at the table with his neck looking infected. Georgy stands
over Roger. Pete now walks into the room.
His head ain't lookin' too good.
Here that kid? You gave ole' Rexy a whopper.
I'm gonna tell you what. If you can beat me
in 3 card monte, we'll let you slide this one
time. You ever play that before?
Tell you what- I'll teach you. It's easy.
You're name is Monte, alright?
Pete leaves. Georgy grabs Roger's hand and busts three of his fingers
one at a time very quickly.
See, 3 card Monte. Now let's play blind man's
Georgy walks over to Rodge who sits quiet and beaten. Georgy wraps
duct tape over Rodge's eyes.
There, he's blindfolded. Now let's see if
he can answer my question.
Georgy grabs Rodge's hair and tilts his head back.
Rodgey- how many states are in the U.S.?
Rodge can't talk. Georgy nods his head up and down as if Rodge had
Mmm. Na, I think he's bluffin'.
Georgy now stabs a kitchen knife through Rodge's throat.
Rodge gargles his own blood and dies.
Look what I fuckin' found.
Rocco is holding a pillow case that has something alive inside.
More of em'. The kid had it stashed.
Leave them alone!
Rocco swings the pillowcase at the wall like a baseball bat over
and over again smashing and killing the opossums inside. Roger is
You...you..you're gonna pay..I swear..you-
Kid, what could you possibly do to us?
Rocco now starts beating Roger with the bloody pillowcase.
Hey, stop fuckin' around.
Pete walks in holding up Rex who looks really dizzy.
We'll finish that later. Go call the doc,
tell'em get here quick- we'll be waitin'
on the porch.
INT. ROGER'S ROOM -- NIGHT
Roger is still crying. He gets up, grabs the puzzle box, and walks
over to the door. Roger's P.O.V. sees the four mobsters waiting out
on the porch. Roger grips the puzzle box as if he wanted to go
behind them and bash them all in the head.
Roger just closes his door and goes and lies on his bed. He is
crying out of control. His finger is caressing the puzzle box
unknowingly activating it.
The window and the door seem to vanish. His room grows larger and
dark. There are cracks forming in the walls letting in slices of dim
lighting from the bowels of hell. Chains and hooks are heard swaying
loosely from the unseen ceiling. Growling is heard. Two werewolves
run out from the darkness towards Roger's bed, but they are suddenly
jerked back by the chains that hold them; very thick chains. Roger
jumps back against his wall horrified and silent.
The werewolves now stand normally on their hind legs; they stand
taller than grizzlies. They are hellish hounds that have been
through a life of torture. Fastened inside their mouths are moving
chains of sharp, metal teeth; almost the same as the moving chain
and teeth of a chainsaw. Their ears are held upward with a rod
pierced through the middle. Their eyes have been cauterized.
The werewolves walk back into the darkness.
Appearing now from the darkness are cenobites. Each of them is
horribly mutilated by systems of hooks and pins. The garments they
wear are elaborated constructed leather to marry with their flesh,
laced through places, hooked into bone. The leader, Pinhead, has
pins driven into his head at inch intervals. Another cenobite,
Bobblehead, walks out of the dark. Its neck is shaven on all sides
leaving little muscle around the spine, which is the only thing
holding the head as it tilts back and forth. Leather covers its
head except for the mouth and eyes, which are empty sockets. From
the top of its head is a large rod pounded through its skull and
out its mouth. The pointy end of the rod hits against a metal
plate that's stitched into its chest every time the head tilts
Pinhead turns facing Roger curiously looking upon his wounds. Roger
looks shocked, but seems saddened and too beaten to be frightened.
Your name child.
Roger. You came from this box?
Indeed. You have summoned us.
Pinhead looks at Roger's wounds again.
It is pain you desire.
Someone did this to me.
There are torturers here? So, that is why
you do not fear us. Nevertheless, these
wounds of yours will be your only happy
rememberence compared to what you will
endure- your teeth will chatter in my
A chain now shoots from the darkness into Roger's cheek pulling it
away from his gums.
Waiting is a game your mind forces you to
play. Hoping for one day that your pain
will cease. It will never.
The ones who beat me- I want revenge.
I can give them to you...please...I can
take you to them....then you can do what
you want with me...I swear.
I do not deal.
Please, take my soul, whatever you want.
All I ask is for revenge. To kill the evil
men that are in this house. They're so close
to you, can't you feel it?
Evil men. The ones that did this?
Yes. They've taken everything from me.
I wouldn't say that. You still have
Please, they think they can't be touched.
When I wish them dead, they laugh.
I will make this deal to have these others,
and to have you- an agreement for all of time.
The hook is pulled out ripping through Roger's cheek. Roger holds his
cheek in pain.
The cenobties walk back into the darkness.
PINHEAD (CONT'D, O.S.)
Bring them to me.
Roger's bedroom is back to normal.
INT. BARN -- NIGHT -- LATER
Roger sits on the barn floor crying with a pitchfork sticking out
of his leg. Georgy, Pete, Rocco, and Rex sit on bales of hay laughing
at Roger. Rex has a bandage on his head.
How are you gonna kill us? Both your parents
are dead. There's noone here to help you.
And you're just a runt- a runt in really bad
Roger gives Rex a dirty look then pulls the pitchfork out of his leg.
Ahhhh. How does it feel to know I'm going to
rip you all to shreds very slowly?
Roger pulls the puzzle box out from behind his back and starts
moving his finger across it.
Laugh all you want. You're all fucking dead.
Kid thinks he's gonna whack me again with
Playin' with your toys ain't gonna do you any
good kid- you're still gonna die.
Not by you.
The puzzle box is in its final mechanism. It closes. The barn starts
What the hell.
This box is what killed your friends. And now
you're going to see what hell looks like.
The darkness is now all around them. The barn entrance has vanished.
They all look around dumbfounded. The sounds of chains and hooks are
How'd it get so dark in here?
I don't know.
Growling sounds of werewolves are heard hidden in the darkness.
Something's in here.
What is that? A grizzly?
Pinhead now walks out from the dark revealing himself. They all are
startled in fear.
What did you do kid? What the fuck did you
Roger sits smiling. Pinhead looks over to Roger then back at the
Here are the scavengers of our methods. A
lesson needs taught. Lessons of knowing
how to sear flesh- to make blood boil- to
make white powder from the grinding of
Shoot it! Shoot it!
Rex points his gun at Pinhead and fires. Pinhead is shot in his
shoulder. Pinhead is in no pain, but realizes he has been harmed.
Pinhead looks at Rex angry then sends dozens of hooks into his skin.
Ahhhh...Georgy help me.
Georgy dashes towards Roger to grab the box. Roger shoves the
pitchfork into Georgy's belly before Pinhead throws his hooks.
Ahh..you fuck...you fuckin' little-
Roger shoves the pitchfork deeper into Georgy's stomach. Pinhead
looks at Roger and smirks sensing Roger's enjoyment.
I told you I was going to kill you.
Hooks now shoot and bury into Pete and Rocco's flesh holding them
in place. Pinhead pulls the bullet from his shoulder with a long,
sharp tool. He holds the bullet in his fingertips.
What is this? A means to injure me-
Please...please...don't kill me.
Not me. It is Roger here- who will
watch your tears.
The chains pull Rex closer to the growling beasts in the dark.
What...what are you doing...please.
The werewolves are heard galloping towards Rex.
Two werewolves lift Rex up and begin biting him. Rex's one arm is
caught in the moving teeth of one werewolf. The other is clawing
away Rex's skin from his bone.
Lumps of Rex's skin are tossed into a bloody pile. Rex is skinned,
but kept alive.
Roger is now shot with hooks and pulled towards the pile of skin.
It's time to fear me. Time to accept.
Time to enjoy.
Roger simply cries. A large machine comes out from behind Roger
grabbing him. It levitates Roger then begins to place bolts and
screws along his arms and legs. Now wires are attached to the
bolts and pulled taught. Roger's bones are beings stretched. His
eyes are put out and his ears sliced off. Roger is so horrified,
he chatters his teeth rather than scream.
The machine continues stretching Roger. Roger is becoming taller
now like the size of an average man.
Roger is now six feet tall, but very thin as if his leg bones were
merely stilts. The machine now pulls Roger into some molding tray.
Now lumps of skin from the pile are grabbed and put into the tray.
The tray closes around Roger's body pressing new skin on his bones.
Now the machine uses wire to stretch Roger's mouth into a rectangle
exposing his frightened, chattering teeth. Skin is brought to the
head mold. The head mold closes around Roger's head blowing out
steam and blood from the intense pressure. Leather is now attached
to his body.
Roger walks out from the machine as the cenobite, THE CHATTERER.
He is now the size of a man. He has no eyes or nose only his
revealed chattering teeth, which have been untouched.
The Chatterer walks over to Pete and Rocco, and begins slicing them
apart slowly with his long blade.
INT. BARN -- DAY
TEXT READS: DAYS LATER
A group of mafiosos walk out of the barn. One man, JAKEY, is a young
man. He and the others walk towards a man who is lighting a cigar.
BLACKIE STONE; his real name Cirabino, was nicknamed Blackie from his
appearance. Under his black derby hat is his strange black hair and
a patch over his left eye.
Blackie, I ain't never seen so much blood
before. There ain't no sign of anyone...
except for the lady and her husband.
Jakey is now closer to Blackie. Jakey's P.O.V. shows Blackie's strange
appearance. Blackie removes his derby hat to itch his head. It wasn't
Blackie's black hair under his hat it was black tar leaking down from
his head onto his face. And he didn't have an eye patch, it was black
tar that melted out his left eye and formed in the socket. He also has
tar spilt down the right side of his face, which had melted away his
Maybe it was their kid.
I don't know Blackie...kid can't do somethin'
like this. Fiori's crew....Pete's- it had to
Maybe. Did you look in the car?
EXT. BARN -- DAY
Blackie, Jakey, and the others are on the opposite side of the barn.
One of the men opens the trunk revealing the chest that was dug up.
Fuck is that?
Jake opens the chest, but nothing is inside.
What do you want me to do with it?
The car goes to Johnny's. Take the chest over
to my place.
Blackie rubs his hand across the old carvings of the chest.
It's an antique.
Another young man, RANDY, runs over to Blackie holding the gold puzzle
Look what I found Blackie.
Rusty hands Blackie the puzzle box.
What is it?
Dunno. It was in the blood.
Blackie hands Jakey the box then takes a rag out and wipes his hands
Can I have it?
I don't care.
INT. CHICAGO, TAVERN -- EVENING
Many people are mingling and drinking. Some guys look like wiseguys,
but most look like city officials or rich business men.
Jakey sits at the bar amazed at the puzzle box while he plays with it.
Blackie walks over to him.
Stop playin' with that thing. When the mayor
gets here I wanna introduce you. But for now
lay back for an hour or so.
But why Blackie? I wanna stay here.
A few of Wayne's guys are coming to show their
What! They're comin' here?
Yeah, I don't need no rough housing tonight.
Now go back with the others.
INT. FOOD STORAGE ROOM -- EVENING
Blackie's crew are playing cards and relaxing in the back room of the
Tavern. Jakey walks in.
INT. TAVERN -- EVENING -- LATER -- CONTINUOUS
Blackie puts his hand on the back of the Mayor stopping him from
Hold on Mr. Mayor there's one more person I
want you to meet...my Brother-In-Law.
Blackie leaves the bar area through the kitchen.
INT. KITCHEN -- CONTINUOUS
Blackie walks through the kitchen that was busy not long ago. Now the
Chefs are all cleaning up. Blackie grabs an appetizer from a table
and keeps walking towards a hallway.
INT. HALLWAY -- CONTINUOUS
Blackie walks down a long hallway. The music from the Tavern becomes
Blackie gets closer to a door at the end of the hallway.
I told you I want you to meet the mayor.
What's wrong with you?
INT. FOOD STORAGE ROOM -- CONTINOUS
Blackie opens the door and sees only spilled playing cards and blood
on the floor.
Jakey! No. Fuck!
Blackie walks around the room confused.
No...no damnit...no. Right from under my own
Blackie picks up the puzzle box that sits in blood. He holds it next
to his chest and cries.
Jakey...Jakey...I'm sorry...I should have
have had them taken out long ago.
INT. JAKEY'S HOUSE -- FOLLOWING DAY
Blackie hugs his sister BETTY. Betty is crying.
I know...don't you worry I'm gonna get'em-
every last one.
He's dead. If they can get to him in a public
place with all you there then how are we
going to be safe- we're next.
Blackie hugs Betty again. JENNY is an eight-year-old girl. She walks
up to them.
Mommy what's wrong?
Nothing honey. I'll tell you later.
Blackie kneels down in front of his niece. He holds his hands behind
Guess which hand.
Jenny points. Blackie pulls out the puzzle box and hands it to her.
Here. Your Daddy wants you to have this.
Jenny happily runs away with the box. Blackie stands up.
Most the crew is gone. It's only me, Jori,
and Paulie- I've got alot of planning to do.
But for now I hired an outsider to protect
Blackie walks to the front door and whistles outside.
Don't get freaked out by him. If anyone
planned any more hits, they'll change their
minds now. Not many people have ever seen
him and lived except for me..and now you.
A six foot hitman in a suit walks in. The man's left hand is held
at his side stiff as a board. His fingers are curled up held frozen
in a strangling grasp. His other arm is held inside his suit resting.
The man wears sunglasses.
Oh my God!
Betty cups her hand over her mouth from fright.
His hand...that's...that's...the Strangler.
I don't want him here! He's killed dozens
of women. He's a mass murderer...and he's
wanted by the cops.
Cops ain't lookin' for him cause he don't
exist- he's a myth. And dozens of women?
That's quite a small number compared to over
four hundred men.
The strangler smiles softly at Betty. Betty stares at him in awe.
It's true...he's strangled so many people his
nerves has stiffened his hand.
Ya make an ugly face, it may stay that way.
That's hardly funny. I can't believe...the
Strangler is in my house.
You're safe. I'll be back tomorrow.
Betty goes into the kitchen.
Blackie, Jakey, and a few others are in some abandoned warehouse.
Above them on another level are two men about ready to drop a vat
of something over them. The men seem to be arguing quietly. They
shake the vat while arguing and a glob of hot tar falls onto
Blackie's head scalding him and disfiguring his face.
Jakey pulls Blackie away.
Blackie's other men shoot the men above. The vat pours onto Blackie's
men melting them, and scalding them to death.
INT. BLACKIE'S HOUSE -- NIGHT
Blackie awakes in sweat. He immediately touches the top of his head
carefully to see if the nightmare was true.
INT. JAKEY'S HOUSE -- DAY -- CONTINUOUS
Blackie walks in through the front door and sees blood on the stairs.
Blackie looks over in the living room and sees another pile of bood.
Oh God, not my niece!
Blackie runs up the stairs.
INT. JENNY'S UPSTAIRS BEDROOM -- CONTINUOUS
Blackie walks into the room and sees blood everywhere.
Blackie looks down on the floor at the puzzle box. He now realizes
what it is.
It can't be.
Blackie remembers the pools of blood in the empty barn. He remembers
Jakey wanting the box.
He remembers Jakey playing with the box in the bar. And how there
was no trace of anyone left in the food storage room; only blood.
He remembers how he knelt down and happily handed his niece the
puzzle box thinking it was a toy.
BACK TO SCENE:
Blackie picks the box up. He quickly forgets about his niece. He
caresses the box in a wonderous greed.
The box becomes activated. Blackie drops it and backs away scared. He
just looks at it.
The box now closes the way it was not being activated any further.
Blackie now goes and picks up the box carefully.
Blackie and his crew have a young man tied to a chair in some
What do you guys want from me?
Blackie removes his hat and leans over showing the young man the top
of his head. The young man's P.O.V. sees Blackie's skull is very
thin almost translucent, which slightly reveals his brain.
See this. My skull is almost completely melted
away. Doctors say I should be dead. If
anything hits the top of my head I'll die-
that's why I wear this derby hat with an
Jesus. That's horrible man...wait...you're
Cirabino Stone...Blackie. Is this about my
Uncle or something?
You got it. I'm the one that made him
disappear. You're the only living relative he
has left. I have to wipe your family tree
clean, so there aren't any problems down the
What? I'm not in the mob. I was always against
all that...please...I have a girlfriend...I
don't care about your business.
The mafiosos put a metal helmet on the young man's head. It is hooked
up to some generator. It's turned on.
The young man bleeds from his eyes, ears, and mouth as he is
electrocuted. Blackie smiles unmercifully.
INT. BLACKIE'S BEDROOM -- NIGHT
Blackie lays in his bed. Instead of jumping awake like his last
dream he just opens his eyes and thinks as if he was given an idea.
INT. TAVERN -- DAY
Blackie sits at a circular booth looking at the box. Three men sit
with him. JUAN, an overweight hispanic man. JORI, Blackie's thin,
compulsive smoking cousin. And VERNE, a serious black man.
So, we gotta deal?
If I help you- it's fifteen percent?
Sounds too good.
You guys have never stepped in my way in the
past. That's one reason I'm letting you in on
this, but the other reason is I need you. When
this all comes through- we'll be like family.
Giving me fifteen percent of 5 million
dollars- every year. The only way you'd be
able ta do dat is if you completely took ova
Chicago. It all sounds good, but you still
didn't tell us how you gonna do it.
Don't worry about that. It's a suprise even
I don't know Blackie. The plans you made in
the past are legendary, but this- you're
takin' on everyone at once.
My man's right. Even if you had my crew, and
Juan's out there watchin' the streets and
and takin' out the strays. How we gonna know
your idea worked? We'd be dead if it didn't.
And what about Vragilli's? They on top- they
can't be touched.
PAULIE, is Blackie's huge, fat cousin. Paulie walks over to the table
with two young men. TOMMY, is the cocky one, and TOBY is his follower.
Blackie, I got a couple'a guys here for ya.
For what? We don't need the toilets cleaned.
C'mon now that ain't necessary.
They say they wanna be made.
They do huh?
Tommy goes to shake hands with Blackie.
Blackie- um, Mr. Stone, it's an honor to meet
you. I just wanted to say that I'll do anything
to work for you sir. I'm the best there is.
Sorry kid, we don't need any help.
I ain't no kid! I can do anything- anything
that your guys can do- I can do even better.
We just thought you needed guys- everyone
bein' wiped out n'all.
Tommy nudges Toby hushing him.
What? Who'd you hear that from?
He's stupid Blackie. He don't know what he's
I asked him! So, where did you hear this
It's all over the streets. Rumours of someone
wiping out your whole crew.
Blackie looks at Jori, Verne, and Juan concerned.
Word's already out.
I guess you do need us.
They say you're done with- I don't believe it.
Even if it's true- I wanna help you Blackie.
I wanna help the best there ever was. I can
do hits- as many as you need. I'm crazy,
but I'm also smart, and loyal. I've even
done things like-
A TALL, FAT, WHITE MAN interupts the men. The tall, fat, white man
points his finger at Verne.
TALL FAT WHITE MAN
What the fuck is this Nigger doing in here?
Verne is about to stand up, but Blackie puts his hand on Verne's
hand restraining him.
This gentlemen is with me. I suggest you
leave while you still have a chance.
The tall, fat, white man looks over at Juan.
TALL FAT WHITE MAN
You got spicks here too? This ain't no
place for either of them- this ain't the
Do you know who I am?
TALL FAT WHITE MAN
Yeah, a Nigger lover and a Spick lover.
The tall, fat, white man looks at Blackie's hand on top of Verne's
And a fuckin' queer.
Jori now attempts to stand up.
No! Let me handle this. That's all we need
is for the cops to show and see that
moonshine ya got?
TALL FAT WHITE MAN
Bootleggers too? Let me tell you something
pal, this is a public place and I don't
wanna see no Niggers while I'm trying to
eat, and I don't wanna see any moonshine
Obviously you're hear on vacation.
TALL, FAT, WHITE MAN
How the fuck did you know that?
Because no one in their right fuckin'
mind would talk to Blackie Stone like
TALL FAT WHITE MAN
Blackie...Blackie Stone...you're Blackie
Stone...oh Jesus...I didn't know...please
forgive me sir...I had no idea..I'll be
The tall, fat, white man runs back to his table, grabs his coat,
and pulls his friend up out of a seat.
WHITE MAN'S FRIEND (O.S.)
What's wrong? Did you tell them guys or
TALL FAT WHITE MAN (O.S.)
Let's go now! We're in the wrong place,
I made a mistake. That's Blackie Stone
WHITE MAN'S FRIEND (O.S.)
Tommy watches the men leave then turns back to Blackie.
See Blackie if you woulda' given me
the go ahead I woulda gutted that fat ass
along with his friend right here and now.
I thought you said you were smart kid?
Well, not here- I mean someplace else.
I'm not sure. I'm gonna have to see what
kind of job you can do.
Holy shit! You mean you're gonna let me-
let us in?
Tommy punches Toby overly excited.
Let's go Toby. We got some provin' to do.
It's cake. Don't worry Mr. Stone...we won't
let you down. No traces, but I'll take a
picture...the most disgusting one you've
Tommy and Toby leave.
Blackie, you really lettin' in those
No. Just a little freelancing- I need
all you here so we can finish our talk.
Like I said before, we can take care of
the loose ends, but the meat of it is on
your part. You betta' got somethin' magical,
man- I'm trusting you with my life.
Are you gonna use bombs or something?
You could say that.
Okay, I didn't even think bout that. You
probably got insidas'- I see. So, when
do it begin?
EXT. GUSPACHO MOB HOME -- NIGHT
GUSPACHO, is a fit, tanned Italian man. He sits in his golden chair
at the end of a long dining table. Twenty of Guspacho's men are in
the room, and some are seen out in the hallway.
Blackie and Jori are standing about ready to leave. Blackie shakes
hands with Guspacho.
So you're out for good? I thought I would
never hear the day that Cirabino Stone
would be quittin' the life. God bless you.
My street profits will now soar.
Blackie pulls out a black cloth and places it before Guspacho.
Blackie uncovers the gold puzzle box.
You shouldn't have.
I don't need it anymore.
Yeah, I guess. But what it really is is like
a genie's lamp.
Will it give me three wishes? (laughing)
Maybe, it's brought me luck throughout the
years just by having it. But the man who
gave it to me said if I ever figured out
how to open it- then I would get three
wishes. I never figured it out though- all
these years and I was unsuccessful. Maybe
you'll have better luck.
Guspacho stands and hugs Blackie joyously.
Really you shouldn't have Blackie. Thank
GUSPAHCO (CONT'D, V.O.)
You shouldn't have told me you're quittin'
the life, Stone- now you're dead. Stupid
INT. PAULIE'S CAR -- NIGHT
Paulie is driving in downtown Chicago.
I don't see what good that did. You
practically told'em you're givin' up.
Nobody quits the life unless they're
scared- they're gonna come after us.
They already knew. I'm just playin' a game
What kind of game? Talk to me Blackie.
You told'em we ain't got no more crew?
Let them think we're scared- it don't
matter either way.
Paulie stops the car and gets out.
What are we gonna do Blackie?
How can you tell me not to worry?
Cirabino Anthony Stone what the hell is
wrong with you? They're gonna kill us
knowin' we ain't got no protection.
Especially now since you practically
tried buyin'em off with gold.
Paulie comes back in the car with a dozen hot dogs.
Let's go back now Paulie.
Yeah. Park across the street.
Why are we goin' back? So they can do
away with us now?
Did you bring the binocualars like I
Yeah. Why? You wanna see it comin'?
Jori hands Blackie the binoculars.
If I DIDN'T have a plan they still wouldn't
do anything. They'd watch us for at least a
week- see if we got any cards up our sleeves.
And I DO have a card up mine; an ace.
You know, I thought you were just lyin' to
Verne and Juan. I thought maybe you were gonna
take them down with the ship, but you're
serious aren't you? What can the three of us
do? Maybe we should leave the city Blackie?
I like Verne and Juan.
(mouth stuffed with hotdog)
And I really am forming an alliance when
this is over. And I am giving them fifteen
percent just like I said.
I don't know what ideas you got in that
head'a yours Blackie. Sometimes I think some
of that tar got in your brain.
Blackie gives Jori an angry look.
Alright, fine I'll relax, but the minute I
think I'm gettin' capped, I'm leaving to
Dakota or someplace.
Paulie pulls the car over across from the Guspacho mob home. Blackie
grabs the binoculars and looks out the window towards the house.
Paulie grabs one of the hotdogs and looks back at Jori.
Want a dog?
Jori just lays back and sighs.
INT. PAULIE'S CAR -- NIGHT -- LATER
Jori is sleeping. Paulie is still eating. Blackie is still looking
out of the binoculars.
There it is!
Jori wakes up suddenly. Paulie is startled and is coughing up his
What? What's up?
Blackie has his eyes glued to the binoculars. Blackie is smiling.
Jori looks towards the house and sees flashes of light coming from
the windows of the house.
What the hell is that? They lightin'
Blackie's P.O.V. through the binoculars sees the closeup of one of
the windows having blood splashed up against it. Now a man is slammed
against the window. He screams in horrific pain. A hairy, clawed
werewolf's hand scratches his face and pulls him away from the window.
Blackie drops the binoculars.
INT. GUSPACHO MOB HOME -- NIGHT -- LATER
Blackie is standing in the dining room smiling. Jori and Paulie are
now seen walking in. They are disgusted and confused looking at all
the blood stained chairs and carpeting.
Where are they?
Blackie picks up the puzzle box slightly hesitant at first. He gazes
at it then hands it to Jori.
It's this. Watch you don't touch any of these
Hey, I remember now- that's that toy Jakey
was playin' with. You told Guspacho it was
made outta gold.
This is how we get back on top.
What? This is your big plan?
What else? Nobody came in or outta this
place- we were in front the whole time. This
thing killed Jakey, the crew, my sister,
my niece, even the Strangler.
You're sick. You mean to tell me that-
No, this was before I understood what it
was. I thought it was a toy too at first.
Back up a sec- did you say the Strangler?
C'mon Blackie. Strangler don't exist.
Yeah he does- he did. Remember when we went
to take out Sammy's boys and they were
already dead? Remember the red marks on their
You guys went through the back, but I went
down the alley. I saw someone leaving down
the alley, I knew it was him. I yelled out
his name and he stopped. I went to him
carefully and talked to him- asking how he
could be reached if I ever needed him.
I don't believe it.
Wow, so you mean I come ta find out in one
day there really is a Strangler, and now we
got Pandora's box.
That thing ain't Pandora's box.
What is it? A bomb?
Its just like a bomb. Wherever I leave it,
it destroys whatever is around. It's some
kind of magic- an evil magic. It's like a
doorway to another place. What I saw in
C'mon, there ain't no fuckin' werewolves.
And there ain't no Strangler either?
Paulie wipes his fingers across settled blood on the table.
With that box, all we gotta do is leave it
with whoever we want done? Then what are
we waiting for?
I'll go check the safe.
Paulie, make sure it looks like we were
INT. CIRONE MOB HOME -- DAY
MEL CIRONE, is walking down a polished marble hallway of his home.
A maid walks up behind him.
He turns around. The maid hands him a package.
A man came. He gives this to you.
The maid walks away. Mel Cirone reads a note attached to the package.
This is a gift of gold. It has brought luck
and riches to me. Now that I'm out of the
life, I pass it down to you. I hope I can
stay in your good graces....Blackie Stone.
Yeah, you're in my good graces- I'll get
you the best casket money can buy...heh,
INT. CIRONE MOB HOME -- EVENING
Blackie, Jori, and Paulie are walking around Mel Cirone's now empty
home. Blackie sees the puzzle box, picks it up, and holds it in
front of his face smiling.
MONTAGE BEGINS: 60 FRAMES OVER DEAN MARTIN'S "ON AND ON (STRONGER)"
The puzzle box is either left at, or taken to various mob families.
A mob guy answers the door. Paulie hands the guy a box of doughnuts
then reaches behind his back. The mob guy gets tense as if Paulie
was reaching for a gun, but Paulie calms him down then hands him
the gold puzzle box.
The mob guys are seen elsewhere jokingly rubbing the puzzle box
like a genie's lamp. Others laugh.
Later, the room becomes dark. Pinhead is now seen screaming as he
has just been let out of the box again to claim more souls.
At another time the puzzle box is placed on a porch by Jori, and
the doorbell is rang. A man answers the door and picks up the box
then reads the note that's on it.
The man is seen standing in darkness scared now. The Chatterer
walks up from behind him out of the shadows. The man is now in pain.
Several mafiosos are shooting their tommy-guns wildy all around
in the dark.
Pinhead looks in various directions making chains shoot from out
of nowhere piercing into the mafiosos' skin with hooks.
How quaint...believing in hope. Spare
yourself time. Spare yourself additional
agony. Believe in your fears.
The mafiosos are held still. The werewolves are heard behind them.
The werewolves pull them back into the darkness. The mafiosos are
heard screaming. The Chatterer chatters his teeth and watches as
the men are pulled away into the darkness.
Pinhead laughs over the mafiosos' screams.
Elsewhere, Blackie is seen happily giving another mob boss the box.
Later, the mob boss is now surrounded by blackness with several of
A large fat man sees Chatterer coming for him with a knife. The
fat man reaches for a gun, but from behind him a bony, skinned hand
grabs his arm and squeezes. The man screams. The bony hand is
squeezing the fat man's arm so hard that his bone is heard cracking,
and his flesh squeezes out from in between the bony hand's fingers.
The fat man crawls towards the Chatterer now more afraid of
what was behind him. Out of the blackness walks the STRANGLER
CENOBITE. His enitre body is covered in black leather except
for its arm, which is held at is side skinned and stiffened, and
reinforced with braces.
The Strangler now slowly lifts its arm up as it now walks towards
the fat man. The fat man's neck is grabbed and squeezed so hard by
the Strangler's hand that the fat man's head pops off.
The Chatterer is holding a different man. Pinhead approaches.
Pinhead makes a hook fly and pierce the man's ear pulling it
taught. Pinhead slices off his ear slowly.
Oh- your tears...hardly genuine. Your pores
bleed your sins. It is torturing you enjoy-
as do I. Even without your hearing devices,
you will still hear all of your own screams.
Pinhead steps aside. A machine slides from the darkness. The
Chatterer pushes the man down on a chair in the machine. The
man's arms and legs are strapped down and spread apart. Thin

BOBBY V, is Robert Vragilli, the top mafia boss in Chicago. He
wears sunglasses, and also, only a towel, which reveals his hairy
body. He takes a sip of lemonade.
The fat men are fighting over the last piece of food. Finally, one
of them grabs it, but then looks over at Bobby V.
You don't mind I eat this last piece, do
Fuck no, the fatter you fucks get, the

Maybe an informer- or a traior or somethin'.
Lance is suddenly stabbed in the back of his head with a large axe.
PAUL, another fat Italian man, stands behind him. VINNY VRAGILLI, an
eighteen-year-old kid, is seen in the pool noticing what happend.
Vinny is getting out of the pool.
And you might be that traitor.
Geez, why the fuck'dcha do that for?
Quit yer whinin'.
Man, I was eatin'.
Joey throws his food down disgusted.
There weren't some things he was tellin'
me. If there was a traitor he woulda' been
it. This is merely a precaution. I don't
want any way for Blackie to get in this
I pocketed five bills from last weeks

She asks you for anything, I wanna know.
Bobby V. looks over at Paul nodding his head. Paul walks over to
Joey and slaps him really hard on the back of his head.
Ow! I said I was sorry.
Stupid. Fucking stupid.
That little whore...I'm gonna straighten
her out real good. And I ain't done with

Why'd you kill him?
It's nothing personal, I liked him, but

business. Go inside.
Fuck you it ain't my business! He was
supposed to take me somewhere tomorrow.
Fuck you too.
Don't you talk to your uncle that way.

Vinny starts to walk away upset.
BOBBY V. (CONT'D, O.S.)
He was gonna take me somewhere...you believe

can give him a ride...to the funeral home.
Fuck me? Fuck you!
Bobby V. gets up from his chair and pulls the axe out from
Lance's head and starts chopping away at his body more and
See your buddy...there...there...see'em...

binoculars as he watches Paulie's car.
OFFICER SMITI (O.S.)
Is it them?
It's Blackie alright.
OFFICER GEE is very fat and sits in the back seat.
I thought he was clean.
We haven't touched him all these years

little. Now he don't get no commission. Tell
him he don't run his store any longer, we do.
He just works there. And I want some salami,
roast beef, anything he's got- I want

An unseen man walks in the dark room and goes behind Blackie whispering
in his ear.
What about Vragilli? I say we send that box
The unseen man stands upright and listens.
No. He's too smart. You still know where those
two kids who wanted in are hanging out?
Good. I got an idea.

Tommy and Toby are walking down the sidewalk.
Jori is standing by an alley. The two boys walk over to him.

No problem. Where is it?
Here's Blackie's address.
Jori hands Toby a piece of paper.
On the porch behind the big flowerpot is a
bag. Do not look in it. Got it?
Take the bag to the address that's on the
other side of the paper.
Toby turns the paper over and looks at it.
Jori begins to walk away. Tommy nudges Toby.
Toby takes a picture out of his pocket and hands it to Jori.
Can you show this to Blackie for us?
Jori looks at the picture and looks disgusted.
Jesus! What the fuck is this?
It's those two guys you told us to take
care of. We did a good job huh?
I would think so. I'll show it to Blackie

INT. BLACKIE'S HOUSE -- NIGHT
The inside of the house is dark. The kitchen door is half opened and
bright. Everyone in the kitchen is heard talking.
There are two cops walking through the dark living room with their
guns drawn heading towards the kitchen.
One cop looks to the other one motioning for him to be quiet.
So just this week?
No. Last week was fourteen. This week is
seventeen, got it?
Listen. Three weeks ago it was ten, right?
The cop arrive outside the door. One of the cops, OFFICER MCGEE,
counts to three on his fingers.
Both cops crash through the door.
The bifocaled, clumsy accountant, FRITZI, practically throws his
hot coffee all over Blackie's lap scalding him and making him
scream like a girl from his past experiences.
Everyone in the room has put their hands up in the air. Blackie
storms over to Officer McGee and punches him in the face busting
Ow! My nose is busted....it was just a
So was that.
Everyone has put their hands back down.
What are you two shmucks doing here anyhow?
It's Priskeski, he knows. He has alot of
shit on you.
Paulie grabs a doughnut and attempts to leave the kitchen.
Where the fuck you going?
Didn't you just hear McGee?
You're fucking stupid. Just make sure you're
here tommorrow morning by six.
But boss, I was going fishin'.
You fatass. You leave those poor fish alone,
and get your fatass here- or I'll feed
you to them.
No, I'm goin' fishin' and that's that.
You had better cut their fuckin' heads off.
You fuckin' fatass, how would you like to
suffocate to death...besides, you need the
practice. Why you think I haven't sent you
on a hit in four years?
Paulie storms out of the room mad.
INT. BLACKIE'S HOUSE, BASEMENT -- DAY
Two men are carrying boxes full of papers up the stairs. Fritzi sits
next to Blackie going through papers.
Do you realize what you have here?
That's why we're doing this.
Are you always this disorganized?
I won't be now with you here.
You said I only have to help you for a year.
But what if you're busted. Anyone of these
papers links you to many operations. If the
cops came here right now and saw all this,
you would tell them I'm not involved right?
No. So you better hurry up.
Say boss, since we gotta do away with
all this, shoudn't we get some tools and
start busting up the concrete?
Why would you do that?
Because of the bodies.
There are bodies down here?
Fritzi becomes quiet and scared.
We just got to get rid of papers for now.
Fritzi, go start over there.
Fritzi walks over to the corner of the basement. He notices an old
wooden chest on the ground.
What's in here?
Fritzi opens the chest. It is filled with pickled glass jars.
Jori walks over looking at the jars. He picks out a jar looking at
it then hands it to Fritzi. Jori now takes out another jar and
holds it in the air.
Boss, can we have some peppers?
No. Those are eyes.
Fritzi looks into the jar as an eyeball looks back at him. He
No, from aliens. Boss likes collectin'em
Fritzi hands the jar back to Jori
I can't believe you people.
Say boss! Should we get rid of these things?
Blackie walks over to them.
No. We'll hide them at my cottage.
Jori starts taking jars of eyes out of the chest.
Dont' do it like that. They're mostly all
eyes. Take the whole chest.
Paulie and Jori lift the chest.
Paulie drops his end busting all the jars and cracking the chest in
Blackie punches Paulie in the gut.
Ah! It's just that chest from that stupid
Those are good peppers!
Blackie slaps Paulie in his face.
And I liked that chest shit for brains!
Get outta here.
Jori, Paulie and Fritzi go to another area of the basement.
I hate it when he's stressed.
You're a clutz. All you had to do is hold
something- it's simple. Would you just
drop a casket at a funeral, no.
Blackie gets down on the floor going through and saving the jars that
A panel underneath is cracked open. Blackie feels his way through
eyeballs and tomato sauce ridden peppers to look under the panel.
Hidden under the panel is a SILVER PUZZLE BOX. Blackie gazes at it
I wish Vragilli's would hurry up and die
already so maybe we could send that thing
to the cops.
Wipe out the cops, huh. That ain't a bad
Again with this box. What is this box you
both are always talking about?
None of your business four eyes.
Blackie holds the silver puzzle box close to him, and smiles.

They turn around and see water pouring into the room, but it is very
dark water, and there is constant lightning seen inside of it.
What the hell is that?
I don't know.
Officer #1 gets up on a desk. Before the other officer can get off
the ground the water moves to his feet. He is held and slowly starts
to sink as if the water had been as deep as an ocean.
What's happening to me?
Grab my hand!
The officer's hand is all that is seen as he sinks under the water.

Man you suck! Now they're winning.
Why don't you make me?
They approach each other ready to fight. Vinny stands between them.
Relax man, we're only winning by one point.
Butch, what about last inning? You missed
that fly ball.
The sun was in my eyes.
So, nobody got mad at you, just relax.
Alright, let's play.
Vinny sees MARCY, a girl his age sitting on a box, watching and
smiling at him. He smiles back at her.
INT. BLACKIE'S HOUSE -- DAY
There ain't nuthin' like a little pepperoni,
provolone, and Vienna.
Paulie takes a bite of his food. Blackie is seen cutting a piece off
a stick of pepperoni. Jori sits at the table reading a book.
They say a genie's lamp was originally a
device used for opening doorways to hell.
I don't know. Whoever wrote this fuckin'
Where'd you get it?
Since when do you go to the library?
Since we started doing hits with werewolves.
Fritzi is going over papers. He stops to look at Jori confused and
having no idea what they are talking about.
They jazzed up the real genie stories so it
wouldn't scare kids- like how they jazzed up
How much did Verne make last week?
I'm still working on it.
They say werewolves would only appear
randomly through the ages. All the stories
are based on very few peasant stories.
I say we go turn myself in.
Fritzi stops writing again. He now looks at Blackie confused.
Paulie gets up.
I'll go get the car.
Fritzi watches dumbfoundedly as Paulie walks away.

What is this? What happend here? We should
go get help.
Boss you didn't tell me you sent the box. I
thought Vragilli's still had it.
Then what's all this?
Blackie notices something. He walks over and grabs the silver puzzle
box handing it to Jori.
It's a different box...I found it in that
This is crazy. The other box didn't do
nothing like this.
Fritzi is seen finishing throwing up.
What kind of witchery is this?
Now the room is seen. Only a dozen cops remain, but they are all
dead and have been tortured in some way. All the bodies seem to
be frozen in time screaming out.
There are legs sticking up from the ground. There is a cop's head
screaming. His head is hovering in mid-air as if it was sucked in
through some invisible portal.
It's like they were sucked in some place.
Fritzi slips on some black goo residue. Paulie walks over to the
hovering head moving his face closer and closer to it. He touches
it. The head moves. It's eyes are closed shut.
The head now severes and falls to the floor.
That box must lead to another dimension.
Who cares? They're dead aren't they? Let's
Jori is looking at half a man sticking out from the floor with a
bunch of devices on his head and with his skull opened as if some
torturous brain surgery was performed.

Vinny opens the door and sees the Cenobites, and everyone including
his father being tortured.
Don't say it- it stings my nerves.
Dad! Where the hell did you come from? What
hell are you?
Hell is where I came. Hell is what I am.
Vinny attempts to leave, but a hook is sent into his shoulder.
Such innocence. A boy that just had his first
kiss. Lips are so strange- they offer such
a pleasant brush with the skin. They are a
channel with thought send directly from the
brain. I have another channel for you to
kiss. But this brain only has horrid thoughts.
The Chatterer brings out one of the tortured mafiosos who has no face,
and has sharp barbs grown from his lips.
Vinny breaks away from the hook leaving a chunk of his skin.
Pinhead looks shocked as the boy runs away.

What's the matter?
Everyone is dead. My whole family!
What are you talking about?
Devils, there are devils in my house.
Marcy looks at Vinny as if he was joking.
I'm serious. My whole house was dark. I
heard screaming upstairs, I ran up, when
I opened the door I couldn't believe what
I was seeing. There were chains everywhere.
These things were all cut up like they

faces. The dog barks and bites at Tuddy's feet. Tudy kicks the dog

You should always watch who you trust.
Now Tuddy is seen with sunglasses on, standing next to Blackie.
Sorry kid, it's just business.
Jori walks up to Blacki with two bums.
These gentlemen said they could use some
Good. We always need new help.
Blackie puts his arm around bum #1, and walks him to the center
of the room in front of Vinny, Marcy, and the dog.
What's going on with them?
Nevermind them. That's how we punish
family. We caught those two screwing
around with each other.
Blackie takes out the gold puzzle box and hands it to the bum.
This is all you have to do. As soon as we
leave, it's a race between you and your
buddy to see who can figure this puzzle
That's it? And you're gonna give me a

It's just a game. Now, I have money bet on

Jori walks away with bum #2 towards a room with no door. Jori is
seen taking out a silver box and handing it to the guy while
explaining what he has to do with it.
Bum #1 sits and gets comfortable.
In the adjacent room bum #2 sits and gets comfortable, but Vinny
can only see the bum's hands holding the silver box.
Blackie, Jori, and Tuddy leave the warehouse.
Vinny strangely wonders as the men fidget with the boxes. Marcy
looks at Vinny dumbfounded as well.
Finally, bum #1 gets the gold puzzle box to activate. Vinny and
Marcy see darkness forming. They freak out and try to get free.
Vinny gets his gag free.
Stop! Don't mess with that thing, it's
some kind of trap!
Bum #1 completes the box's motions.
Shut up kid- I already won.
The room is all dark now. Vinny and Marcy watch in horror as
something walks behind bum #1.
Bum #1 turns around frightened and now in awe of Pinhead.
Jesus! What the hell are you?
You brought me here- I'm the reward you
seek. Am I not what you expected?
What about this?
Bum #1 senses something breathing next to him. He turns and a
werewolf's snout is right next to him.
The werewolf bites his head off. Vinny and Marcy cower in
shock. Pinhead's entire body turns towards Vinny sensing his
Hah! Our eyes meet again.
The Strangler cenobite comes from nowhere lifting Vinny up by
his throat. The Chatterer cenobite is holding Marcy. The
other werewolf stands over the frightened dog.
And who is this? A friend? No...a
lover. Well, speak to me...lover.
Chatterer slices her gag apart, also cutting her lip.
Oww! What do you want with us?
Your Casanova and I have unfinished
Pinhead looks into Vinny's eyes.
Nothing escapes us.
Vinny turns his head and sees the hands of bum #2 opening
the silver puzzle box. Vinny looks back at Pinhead who is
now face to face with him.
What is so distracting? Do I not fear
you any longer since you succeeded in
escape? Since you cannot keep attention,
I'll simply rip your eyes out and nail
them closer together.
Pinhead moves a knife up to Vinny's eye, but pulls away as
he senses something.
What is that?
The dark atmosphere changes. A neonish glow lightens up the
warehouse slightly. Pinhead sees a glowing neon green liquid
leak from a wall.
Coming from the room, bum #2's intense screams are heard.
BUM #2 (O.S.)
Ahhh! Ahhhhhhh! Ahhhhhhhhh!
How can such screams be so untouched?
Pinhead looks to his cenobites.
Something is here.
Chatterer, Strangler and the Werewolf leave the kids and dog.
They wander the center of the room curiously.
The Bobblehead cenobite is caught in a strange black puddle.
Pinhead watches as a red-leathered being rises behind Bobblehead,
hovering above him. This being is a sectobite. It is 'Organ'.
It is bound in red-leather with risen, glowing lines covering
it's body. It has light filled tubes coming from its eye sockets
leading to its boneless arms, keeping them from dangling any
lower. All the organs are kept in sewn, red-leather pouches
hanging outside it's body.
Organ hovers behind Bobblehead. A glowing fog from the black
puddle now rises metling Bobblehead's leather and skin, leaving
only a skeleton, which is then sucked down into the black puddle.
Pinhead throws chains at Organ, but they melt as they enter the
glowing fog before even touching Organ.
Another sectobite, 'Quiltface', is seen appearing and hovering
by an orange electricity. Quiltface has a dozen faces sewn
together as one. It has six arms sewn to its very long torso.
It speaks to Pinhead in an indistinguishable, alien, robotic
Who arrrrre you?
Quiltface just answers in his scary, ear wrenching noise, which
Pinhead doesn't understand.
This is my hell!
A puddle of blood now flows towards Pinhead making him step back.
Now another sectobite rises from the puddle covered in blood.
'Rod' sectobite has light filled rods coming from his eyes and
entering in through his back. Rods pierce its body and head
everywhere. It hovers towards Pinhead.
Come no further!
It raises its hands at Pinhead. It has long, needle-thin claws
several feet in length. Suddenly it stops.
The Strangler has taken hold of Rod's throat. Rod twists its body
completely around facing Strangler. Its claws now pierce into the
sides of the Strangler. Now the Strangler's chest busts open with
a bubbling liquid pouring out.
Another sectobite, 'Marrow', forms out of nowhere from dust. It
is a strange alien skeleton with all its skin and organs seen
living underneath its bony skin. Pinhead sees this new threat
then gives his werewolves an order.
The werewolves' chains bust open and they run at Marrow. They
bite off Marrow's legs, but they strangely grow right back.
Marrow grabs hold of each werewolf by their heads. The werewolves'
growls turn to yelps.
The werewolves' rib bones rise out piercing through their skin.
They are turned inside out and killed. Marrow now cuts his exposed
skin on his arm with his fingernail. He pours his neon blood onto
the werewolves bringing them back to life. Marrow keeps pulling
their bones out through their bodies. They die again, but are kept
being brought to life over and over again until the torturous
process is complete.
Pinhead attempts to go put his werewolves out of their misery, but
cannot move. He looks down and sees he is held in a liquid mirror.
Now a slimy, long, serpent's tongue runs across his face. A female
sectobite, 'Spitfire', walks around Pinhead caressing his body.
There are low burning flames coming from her eye sockets, her
shapely body is seen through her tight, red, glowing leather.
Her alien body has square, misplaced breasts. Her tongue licks the
back of Pinhead's head melting a spot of his flesh as if her
tongue was made of acid.
Vinny unties his ropes and runs into the room where the silver
Pinhead and Chatterer are now held into the air by Quiltface's
many hands. All Pinhead's attempts of throwing chains, or
raising fire, all fail.
Spitfire is now over my Marcy. She licks Marcy's shoulder burning
her skin, and making her shirt fall off her shoulder.
Marcy looks over and sees Vinny's hands finally getting the
silver box to function.
INT. WAREHOUSE, ROOM -- CONTINUOUS
A neon green liquid sneaks up behind Vinny while he messes with
the silver box. The liquid stays still.
INT. WAREHOUSE -- CONTINUOUS
Pinhead notices some spinning device underneath them. They are
being lowered towards it. The sectobites continue talking, but
its still in an alien dialect.
How can this happen? I am forever.
Pinhead closes his eyes accepting fear and defeat.
INT. WAREHOUSE, ROOM -- CONTINOUS
Vinny finishes the silver box.
A huge mass rises from the neon liquid behind Vinny about to
devour him, but the creature is heard screaming in pain.
Vinny turns around noticing it. He just holds the silver box
in front of him as the creature falls back into its neon puddle.
INT. WAREHOUSE -- CONTINUOUS
Pinhead opens his eyes hearing all the sectobites' screams.
Pinhead sees Vinny walking out from the room holding the
silver box. Now all the sectobites begin to vanish each by the
way they entered, by dust, orange electricty, puddles, and
Pinhead and Chatterer fall to the ground. The warehouse is
turned dark again.
Vinny runs and unties Marcy. Pinhead and Chatterer approach
Vinny. Before Pinhead can speak, Vinny does.
Listen, I helped you. Besides, we
aren't the ones who did this. Those
mobsters have been doing it as a game.
When you saw me, that's because you killed
my family. They didn't mess with that box.
That box was sent to them.
Vinny untiles Marcy's gag. She hugs him.
Thing is...you can get the ones who did
this. The ones responsible for getting all
your friends killed. They're all coming
Vinny walks to Pinhead and hands him the silver box.
This belongs hidden in hell.
Do we have a deal?
The dog walks limping next to Vinny. The dogs sees Pinhead
and growls at him. Pinhead tilts his head looking at the dog.
Only if I can have this broken creature
as my companion. To torture it as I please.
The dog whines.
No fucking way. The three of us stay
untouched, and I hope I never see you again.
We just want to go back to our lives.
Pinhead looks at the dog again, which is now hiding behind
Vinny's feet. Pinhead thinks for a moment.
So be it.
INT. WAREHOUSE -- NIGHT -- LATER
Blackie, Jori, Tuddy, Paulie, Fritzi, Juan, Verne, Officer McGee, and
a few other cops all walk in carrying food. Blackie sees Vinny
standing in the center of the room still alive.
What's he doin' alive?
I don't know. Everyone else is gone. I
thought this place would be alot messier
with both those things opened.
Maybe they only opened one.
The mobsters walk to Vinny.
How did you survive?
Vinny looks emotionless.
Your game did not work.
It worked enough. We can kill you
Tuddy grabs Vinny. The dog is heard barking from somewhere.
What was that?
INT. WAREHOUSE, ROOM -- CONTINUOUS
Marcy realizes they heard the dog bark. She puts her hand over the
INT. WAREHOUSE -- CONTINUOUS
Juan and Verne walk towards the room.
INT. WAREHOUSE, ROOM -- CONTINUOUS
Juan and Verne step into the doorway of the room. They see Marcy
holding the dog in a corner with Vinny next to her. Verne and
Juan notice Vinny.
What the hell?
The room now grows dark.
INT. WAREHOUSE -- CONTINUOUS
Blackie approaches the emotionless Vinny face to face.
What? You think you're tough now kid?
Vinny now grows into Pinhead so quickly that Tuddy's arms are
ripped off still held around Pinhead.
Blackie looks up at Pinhead in awe.
You're what comes from that box?
I am the ambassador from hell.
Everyone in the warehouse begins to run. Pinhead stretches his
arms out summoning one of his powers. Now pins rise from the
floor pierceing all the mobsters keeping them still.
What you have done to my legion is
unforgiveable and you will understand
every inch of your flesh, as eons pass.
INT. WAREHOUSE, ROOM -- CONTINUOUS
What's going on here?
Juan pulls out his gun and points it at Vinny.
Chatterer comes from behind Verne and Juan slicing them from
INT. WAREHOUSE -- CONTINUOUS
Pinhead stands waiting and lets Vinny, Marcy, and the dog
leave the warehouse before he begins.
Once outside, I would suggest covering
your ears. For the first time in all
eternity, I am mad, and you do not
want to hear screams like this.
Vinny, Marcy, and the dog leave the warehouse. Pinhead looks
at armless Tuddy, who is on the ground in pain.
Now I need recruits.
A machine rolls from the darkness towards Tuddy. Its hoses enter
Tuddy's fat body. The hoses push a thick black liquid into his body
making him fatter, making new rolls appear. A helmet goes on Tuddy's
head now, steaming off his hair, and leaving some blisters on his now
bald head. Tuddy's arms are sewn back on. The machine now removes his
sunglasses, sews his eyelids together, then places the sunglasses
back over his eyes. THIS IS THE ORIGIN OF BUTTERBALL.
All the other mobsters are watching and screaming in fear.
EXT. WARHOUSE -- NIGHT
END SEQUENCE: 40 FRAMES OVER AL MARTINO'S "SPEAK SOFTLY LOVE".
Vinny and Marcy turn and look back at the warehouse windows, which
light up occasionally by the hell that's inside.
Vinny and Marcy hug. Then kiss. The dog barks interupting their
kissing reminding them of the urgency of escape.
He's right, we should keep going.
Where will we go?
Well, three good things came from this.
One, I've seen hell and I'll continue to
be good so I don't ever see it again. Two,
with all those mobsters gone, the city
won't have as much crime.
Marcy sees Vinny stopped without telling her the third reason.
What's the third reason?
Vinny moves in and kisses her again.
I know where my dad hides his money.
Marcy smiles. Vinny picks up the injured dog and carries him.
First thing, we both need to see the
They walk away. Marcy has her hand around Vinny.
