Burn – Part 17

INT. THE COTTAGE – KITCHEN – CONTINUOUS

Lilith throws Mickey a shotgun.

LILITH
Nothing magical can get in unless invited…or…Breaks a seal or…
MICKEY
Or what?
LILITH
It’s complicated.
MICKEY
I am totally regretting not playing Dungeons & Dragons.

Through the window Lilith sees Frank approaching he sees the girl and shoots the window next to her.

Kimmi ducks the shattering glass.

Mickey returns fire.

Frank shoots then reloads.

As he does so the Second Goon shoots at the cottage.

Lilith starts chanting as she pushes the table over and pulls out an arsenal of weapons.

MICKEY (CONT’D)
Thought you didn’t like guns.

There are a variety of old fashioned weapons including muskets.

MICKEY (CONT’D)
Really?
LILITH
I may have lied about my age

Mickey just looks at her.

LILITH
… a little.

A volley of shots shatter the window as Frank shoots his way closer to the cottage. Mickey returns fire and misses his target.

The second goon shoots at Mickey distracting him.

EXT. THE COTTAGE – GARDEN – CONTINUOUS

Frank disappears into the shed and comes out with a can of petrol.

He calmly walks towards the back of the cottage to the willow tree and starts to pour petrol all over the tree.

The second goon gets in closer to the cottage giving Mickey a chance to put a few rounds into him, finishing the creature.

But it’s too late.

Frank lights the petrol and the trees starts to burn.

Lilith runs out of the cottage to the big tree now burning furiously.

LILITH (CONT’D)
No!!!

Mickey tries to stop her but she pushing past allowing Frank a chance to shoot Lilith in the arm stopping her dead in her tracks.

Frank hesitates and turns to Mickey who takes the shot.

Frank goes down.

Mickey goes over to Lilith. Is she breathing?

MICKEY
Lilith.

No response.

MICKEY (CONT’D)
Damn you. Stupid bitch.
LILITH
Who you calling stupid?
MICKEY
Fuck off not funny.

Lilith grins for the first time in a while. Just a graze.

Tough lady.

Then she remembers…

LILITH
The Tree. Must save the tree.
MICKEY
Too late it’s fucked.

The tree burns hot and bright.

LILITH
No. No No.
MICKEY
Wait…

Mickey and Lilith get up just as Frankie jumps into frame and the two finally have a close quarters fight.

Two former friends fight in silence, save for the grunts and slamming of flesh against flesh. Their battle silhoutetted against the burning tree.

In the background Lilith and Kimi try to get the flames under control. They try to use the garden hose but it’s no use.

Finally Mickey gets the upper hand grabs Franks fallen gun and shoots Frank until the chamber is empty

Frank gurgles as Mickey props him up.

MICKEY (CONT’D)
Easy fella.

Mickey sits beside his old friend as the mortally wounded younger man struggles for breath.

FRANK
Funny how things turn out.
MICKEY
Shh you twat.

Frank pulls the Mickey’s Zippo out of his pocket and gives it back to Mickey.

FRANK
You’re right about Johnny though. He is a cunt…but he’s my brother.

Frank shuts down and he’s gone.

#businesscards #design #screenwriting #behindthescenes #makingof #sexybathrobe #nolife #mostpeoplewouldbematerbating #notme #sittingwriting #allalone DiaryofShortDisturbances.blog #screenwriting #DarkPathMovie "Every great magic trick consists of three parts or acts. The first part is called "The Pledge". The magician shows you something ordinary: a deck of cards, a bird or a man. He shows you this object. Perhaps he asks you to inspect it to see if it is indeed real, unaltered, normal. But of course... it probably isn't. The second act is called "The Turn". The magician takes the ordinary something and makes it do something extraordinary. Now you're looking for the secret... but you won't find it, because of course you're not really looking. You don't really want to know. You want to be fooled. But you wouldn't clap yet. Because making something disappear isn't enough; you have to bring it back. That's why every magic trick has a third act, the hardest part, the part we call "The Prestige". Christopher Priest, The Prestige #screenwriting too close to what I am writing right now! Motherfucker! Damn! Wait....it's a PG?!??? #DarkPathMovie. #MidnightRun #blackandwhitephoto #MidnightRun #WintersComing Time to loose a few kgs. 
#abstractphotography #artifical #colours The Frankenbeast gets power mad. Now it balances on my shoulder. #filmmaking #dslr #cameraoperator  #grip #canon #magiclantern This came today. 
Sooo exited. Sooo beautiful.  #loomis #howtodraw #backtothedrawingboard #screenwriting #DarkPathMovie part 10 releasing later tonight. Just wrote probably the most horrific scene today. This is the scene that breaks the movie to the audience and shows them how... Nope you'll have to read it to understand.
 After this script is done I'm writing a movie about pink bunnies  that live in a world without predators.  End of act two? Heading into the third and final act of the film. Heading into the home stretch now.  #moviemaking #script #horror #thriller #camerarig The Frankenbeast is taking shape. New secondhand #alphatron EVF and cage from @smallrigchina  took a gamble and very happy with the products. Cheap but not chearful. More to come... #moviemaking #DoP #cameraoperator #director
