Crimson Moon 2 Script (Part 2)|
EXT. HOUSE - JIMMY AND SMITH ARE STILL WAITING AT THE
SLIDING GLASS DOOR.
Jimmy is scratching the bandage on his arm.
I heard Brians shouting in there.
We’re going in!
All of a sudden, Jimmy just swings his fist over and
the glass on the sliding door shatters and falls to
the ground. Jimmy moves his hand back out and it doesn't
have a single scratch on it. Smith’s eyes are wide.
They walk into the house and see Hopper forcing the
handcuffed Snort outside, as Brians brings the
girlfriend, who isn’t struggling anymore, outside.
What’s the situation?
We’ve got two of them, and we know
for sure that there’s at least one
more. He ran off down that hall.
Bucky points down a hall and takes his gun back out.
Jimmy and Smith take their guns out as well.
The three of them rush off down the hall towards the
closed door at the end. When they get there, they
push their backs against the walls and notice that
the other doors in the hall are opened.
I guess this is the room.
Open up! This is the Police!
All of a sudden, a hole gets blown in the door and
part of the wall next to Smith gets chipped away.
We have shots fired! We’re being
As he’s talking, another hole gets blown in the door.
Fall back and wait for backup!
Bucky looks from Smith’s walkie-talkie to the door.
We can’t fall back and wait! He’ll
Shouting is heard coming from the other side of the
door, but they can’t tell what's being said.
They’ll. They’ll slip away.
He raises his gun and fires a couple shots at the door
and starts sliding along the hall, heading towards it.
Suddenly, another hole breaks in the door and Bucky
screams out as his blood splatters the wall and he
falls to the floor.
SMITH AND JIMMY
They both raise their guns and start firing. With his
free hand, Smith raises his walkie-talkie.
Man down! Repeat, Man down!
Another shot fires from the other side of the door
and just clips the walkie-talkie, causing it to fly
from Smith’s hand and smash on the floor.
Just then, both Smith and Jimmy’s guns click on empty.
Jimmy starts scratching his bandage again as another
shot fires out and just misses him by an inch. He
doesn’t even blink or jump.
Jimmy, what are you doing?! They
almost hit you!
A deep growl comes up from Jimmy’s throat and he runs,
picking up speed fast and jumping at the door, on all
fours, and knocking it off it’s hinges and falling
into the other room, still on his hands and feet.
Inside the room, Jimmy lifts his head and sees the
Boyfriend and Money, but Cokehead isn’t anywhere to
CAMERA PANS DOWN AND WE SEE A BIG BLOOD STAIN LEAKING
OUT FROM UNDER THE DOOR, A SHOTGUN JUST BESIDE THE
Jimmy growls again as he remains on all fours.
Before he can even finish, Jimmy leaps up and lands
on him, pushing him to the floor. Jimmy is still
standing on him, but he has the Boyfriend’s arm in
Ahhh! He’s biting me! The cop is
Money, who was in shock up until now, shakes his head
and pumps the shotgun. Jimmy’s ears perk back when
he hears that and he lets the Boyfriend’s arm fall
to the floor and whips his head to look at Money with
Money fires, and as quick as lighting, Jimmy jumps off
of The Boyfriend and the Boyfriend’s stomach explodes
when the shot hits him.
Jimmy jumps at Money, but Money moves out of the way
and Jimmy lands on the floor next to him. He kicks his
foot up, knocking the gun from Money’s hand, and then
swings his other foot out, tripping Money up, sending
him to the floor.
Jimmy blinks. He stands and seems like he’s returned to normal.
He puts a foot on Money’s neck, keeping him from moving.
You move, I'll kill ya.
Smith slowly walks in, eyes wide.
Where’d you learn to do that?!
Jimmy shrugs and Hopper and Brians run into the room,
guns drawn, ready to shoot. They slow to a stop as
they see that the only living person they can take
in is Money.
Holy shit! Who did this?
I did, sir.
Hopper looks around at the guns on the floor and looks
at all the guns in the closet, and sees all the cocaine
(still in shock)
Thank you, sir.
Jimmy looks around the room, breathing heavily, with
a look on his face that shows even he's amazed at what
he's done... and not sure how he did it.
EXT. THE HOUSE – DAY - SQUAD CARS WITH SIRENS SCREAMING
START PULLING UP.
INT. THE HOUSE - SMITH AND HOPPER ARE CHECKING ON BUCKY,
WHO IS LAYING IN THE HALLWAY, THE UPPER PART OF HIS
LEFT ARM BLEEDING, THE LEFT SIDE OF THE CHEST OF HIS
SHIRT ALL TORN UP.
How bad is it?
Looks like it got your vest mostly.
You should be alright.
You'll be fine, Buck.
EXT. THE HOUSE - AN AMBULANCE PULLS UP WITH THE POLICE
CARS, SIRENS GOING.
At the front porch, Jimmy and Brians are leading Money
down the steps. Money isn't struggling, just walking
along with them, his head hanging. As they start across
the lawn, the paramedics head for the house with a gurney.
A police officer is leading a German Shepherd on
A leash toward the house. The dog is sniffing the
air uneasily. When they're about 10 feet from Jimmy,
Money, and Brians, the dog stops.
The dog doesn't move.
What are you doing?
Jimmy, Money, and Brians reach them, going around
them, and the dog starts to growl.
As they pass, the dog turns around to watch them,
What's wrong with you, Snoop? Come
on, we've got work to do.
The officer tries to pull the dog toward the house,
but it resists.
Jimmy, Money, and Brians reach a squad car and Brians
opens a back door. Jimmy glances back at the growling dog
just for a second.
A train horn screams off-screen and the dog snaps. It
starts running toward Jimmy, pulling it's leash out
of the officer's hand.
Hey! Watch out!
As Brians starts to load Money into the car, he and
Jimmy look over just as the dog reaches them.
The dog jumps into the air, hitting Jimmy in the
chest with it's front paws and biting at his face.
The force of the dog knocks Jimmy back against Brians,
and sends Brians falling back against the car's trunk.
The dog is back on the ground and barking at Jimmy,
occasionally taking bites at his legs.
Money sees his chance and pushes himself off the
car, making a run for it.
Get this fucking dog away! Somebody stop
Brians goes around the back of the car and starts
running after Money.
The officer grabs the dog's leash and starts dragging
it away from Jimmy.
Jimmy turns and runs after Money and Brians. A few
other cops have seen what's going on and start
running after them, too.
Money has reached the railroad crossing at the end
of the block and is running as fast as he can. The
lights beside the crossing are flashing red and the
gates are down.
Off-screen, the train horn screams again.
Stop! You can't make it!
Money goes around the end of a gate, runs out onto
the crossing, and just as he does, the train horn
sounds again, deafeningly loud.
Money looks over, and just as he does a speeding
train slams right into him. The force of the hit
sends blood and some body parts flying. The "cow
catcher" on the front of the train throws most of
Money's body clear of the tracks.
Brians, who is at the gates, is hit by a wave of
blood as he turns away.
The other cops that were giving chase, including
Jimmy, stop running with shocked looks on their
Money's bloody and mangled body has landed in the
front yard of the house closest to the tracks.
We look at Jimmy, and slowly zoom into his shocked
face, as he breathes heavily from the run.
CLOSE-UP OF A TV SCREEN.
On the TV is an exterior shot of the yellow house
with the yard full of police officers. Paramedics
are wheeling Bucky out on a gurney.
The shot pulls back a bit and a reporter is now
standing in front of us, holding a microphone.
A drug bust gone bad. Local police
raided this house on the 7th Street
earlier today, and while they stopped
one of the biggest cocaine dealers
in the area, that achievement didn't
come without a price. One police
officer wounded, four drug dealers
We pull back from the TV and turn away from it, seeing
INT. A HOUSE - THE LIVINGROOM - A WOMAN, JIMMY'S
GIRLFRIEND, MONICA HALE, IS SITTING ON A COUCH,
WATCHING THE TV.
As she watches, the front door opens. She looks
over at it and Jimmy enters. He looks a little
depressed and very worn out.
Oh, honey, are you alright?
Monica stands up from the couch as Jimmy shuts the
I've had a hell of a day.
She reaches him and gives him a hug.
They were talking about the drug
bust on the news.
It didn't go well.
Who was wounded?
He'll be alright. Got shot in the
shoulder. He'll get time off, and
then he's gonna take his vacation
Jimmy crosses through the livingroom, followed by
Monica, and goes into the kitchen.
You don't really want to talk about
it, do you?
Not really. It was just... crazy.
Monica goes over and hugs Jimmy again.
You want me to run you a bath?
Sure. Start running it and get in.
I’ll be along shortly.
Monica leaves the room and her footsteps can be heard
going upstairs. Jimmy sighs and turns, looking out
the window. It’s early evening, and the sun is just
starting to go down. Jimmy looks over at a clock and
it reads ‘6:30’. He sighs again as he turns and walks
out of the room.
INT. HALLWAY - THE DOOR TO THE BATHROOM IS CLOSED, BUT
WE CAN HEAR TWO SETS OF MOANING COMING FROM INSIDE.
INT. HALLWAY - MINUTES LATER - THE DOOR OPENS AND MONICA
WALKS OUT WITH A TOWEL WRAPPED AROUND HER, GIGGLING.
SHE TURNS AND WALKS DOWN THE HALL.
INT. BATHROOM - JIMMY IS LAYING IN THE TUB FULL OF WATER
AND BUBBLES. HE IS LEANING BACK, A SMILE ON HIS FACE,
AND HIS EYES CLOSED.
That was good.
He starts to feel weird and his eyes shoot open as
he looks down at his arm, frantically. Nothing. He
sighs and closes his eyes again.
CLOSE-UP OF ARM: TINY LITTLE HAIRS ARE STARTING TO
INT. LIVINGROOM - LATER - MONICA IS SITTING DOWN IN THE
QUIET LIVINGROOM ALONE, READING "THE TALE OF THE BODY
THIEF" BY ANNE RICE. IT HAS GOTTEN DARK OUT AND THE
ONLY SOURCE OF LIGHT IS FROM A LAMP NEXT TO THE COUCH.
A loud thump comes from the kitchen, followed by the
sounds of pots and pans falling over.
(looking up from her book)
Jimmy? What are you doing?
Again, no answer. She sighs and lays her book on the
coffee table and stands up. She is now in a nightgown
and she straightens it before starting to walk slowly,
slowly approaching the kitchen.
Ok, stop messing around.
She gets closer to the kitchen and sees that there’s
no light on in there. She finally reaches it and slowly
INT. THE KITCHEN - MONICA ENTERS AND LOOKS AROUND.
The pots and pans rack that hangs from the ceiling is
swinging back and forth, and about half of the pots
and pans have fallen to the floor.
Suddenly, something jumps out at Monica and she screams
as it wraps it's arms around her. She manages to pull away
from it and as she turns around to face it, she hears laughing.
The light turns on and Jimmy is standing in front of
You scared me to death! What the
hell were you doing?
Jimmy is laughing too hard to answer.
Monica hits Jimmy on the arm and turns, storming out.
Clean up the pots you knocked over!
Jimmy stayed back in the kitchen, watching her walk
away. His eyes look different somehow, but we don't
linger on him long enough to see.
INT. THE LIVINGROOM - MONICA IS WALKING BACK TO THE
COUCH, SHAKING HER HEAD.
Monica picks her book back up, and as she does, she
sees the kitchen light turn off out of the corner of
I hope the pans are all picked up!
She sits back down, opening the book to the page she
was on, then suddenly the lamp next to her goes out.
What the hell?
She tries turning it back on, but it won’t come on.
She stands up and walks over to the light switch on
the wall and flicks it a couple times, but nothing
Jimmy! I think the fuse is blown!
Can you check it out?
No answer. Monica sighs, looking toward the kitchen.
You're really starting to piss me
From behind her comes a loud squeaking noise, and
Monica turns around to see that the basement door
is slowly swinging open.
What's wrong with you tonight?
Monica starts walking towards the basement door.
INT. THE BASEMENT STAIRWAY - MONICA STEPS THROUGH THE
DOORWAY AND ONTO THE TOP STEP.
She reaches over to the wall and takes a flashlight
off the hook.
How do you expect to check the fuse
without a light?
She turns the flashlight on and shines it on the stairs,
just as she hears a running sound, heading away from
the stairs, at the bottom. By the time the light beam gets
to the spot, nothing’s there, but she catches a glimpse of fur.
What the hell?
She heads down the stairs, shining the light around
the area of the bottom step.
She reaches the basement floor and shines the light
around the dark room, but it doesn’t fall on any
Jimmy, are you down h...
Suddenly, faster than you could blink an eye, the beam
falls on the face of a wolf, only it's up as high as
Monica. The beast is standing on two legs and it’s
arms were up. It growls and jumps, knocking Monica
to the floor, landing on top of her
EXT. STREET – NIGHT - MONICA’S SCREAM IS HEARD CUTTING
THROUGH THE AIR. SUDDENLY IT STOPS.
INT. LIVINGROOM - MONICA’S BODY IS LAYING ON THE FLOOR,
ALL BLOODY AND MANGLED, AND HER HEAD IS MISSING. THE
WEREWOLF IS STANDING ABOVE THE BODY, ITS TEETH SUNK
INTO THE HEAD WHICH IS IN ITS HANDS. SUDDENLY, IT BRINGS
IT’S SNOUT OUT AND THE WEREWOLF STARTS CHANGING. THE FUR
SLOWLY SHRINKS AND THE SNOUT STARTS TO GO BACK INTO THE HEAD
AS THE EARS ALSO SHRINK. BEFORE LONG, THE WEREWOLF IS
BACK TO BEING JIMMY, NAKED. JIMMY LOOKS AT THE HEAD AND
QUICKLY DROPS IT, BACKING UP.
No. No. Nooooooo!
INT. THE BATHROOM - JIMMY QUICKLY SITS UP IN THE TUB,
He looks around quickly, breathing heavily.
The door opens and Monica steps into the doorway, now
wearing her nightgown.
What was that?
You just decided to scream for no
I guess I fell asleep. Had a hell
of a dream.
Ok... I think it's time for you to
get out of there.
I think so, too.
Jimmy stands up out of the tub.
INT. THE BEDROOM - JIMMY IS STANDING AT A WINDOW, LOOKING
Behind Jimmy, Monica is walking into the bedroom. She
shuts the door behind her.
Are you alright?
Jimmy turns away from the window.
Yeah. Just really tired.
Monica and Jimmy walk over to the bed. During the
following conversation they pull the covers back on
the bed, get in, and cover up.
What was your bathtub nightmare
You don't want to know.
Yes, I do. Especially now that
you've said I don't.
It wasn't about much, really. I
just turned into a werewolf and
ripped your head off.
Another werewolf dream?
Yeah, but this is the first time
I've actually been the werewolf. I'm
getting sick of these damn dreams.
Ever since I got bit... The guys
give me shit about it every day.
Maybe that'll stop after today.
It's just been a hectic time. Things
will settle down, and then the werewolves
will be out of your head.
They kiss for a few seconds, then when they pull apart-
I hope so.
We move away from the bed, going back over to the
window that Jimmy was standing at. Once we reach the
window we look through it.
The moon is shining in the sky. It's a half moon,
We cut to a Close-Up of the moon and "Moon Dawg" by The
Beach Boys kicks in.
We watch the moon as it quickly goes through it's cycles.
When the moon has disappeared into the new moon phase, we
see a series of quick flashes that show a werewolf tearing
something apart, flesh and blood dripping from it's mouth.
When the flashes end, we're back in the dark bedroom
and Jimmy is quickly sitting up in bed.
He looks around the room, which he's now alone in.
I can't take much more of this.
It's dawn, and sunlight is starting to shine in
through the window.
Jimmy sighs and climbs out of bed.
INT. THE BATHROOM - JIMMY IS STANDING AT THE SINK,
PUTTING HIS TOOTHBRUSH BACK INTO ITS HOLDER.
After this he looks down at his arm. The bandage is
off, and all that remains of the bite is a large scar.
INT. THE KITCHEN - JIMMY IS STANDING BESIDE THE SINK,
IN UNIFORM. MONICA IS STANDING ACROSS FROM HIM,
LEANING ON THE COUNTER AS THEY TALK.
I start working nights tomorrow.
I don't know why you asked to do
that, now we'll hardly ever get to
see each other. You'll get off work
at seven and be going to bed just as I
get up. Then just when you wake up,
I'll be going to work.
I can wait to go to sleep after you
go to work.
So I get a tired zombie version of
You know I don't sleep that much
Anymore anyway. There's no problem here.
That's why I'm working nights. The
dreams. It's been over three weeks
now, and they just get worse. They're
scaring me. Much longer and I'm gonna
go to a psychiatrist or something.
I think you should have gone to a
psychiatrist before changing your
work schedule over them.
Yeah, but I hate things like that.
I'd rather suffer through the mental
It's your own fault then, and therefore
I'm still mad at you for switching
I did it for your protection!
How is it protecting me?
Well, according to the calendar, in
a little over a week it'll be a full
So if my dreams come true and I end
up turning into a werewolf, you don't
want me to be around you, do you?
You're not funny. At all.
EXT. THE NIGHT SKY - THE MOON IS ONCE AGAIN SHINING.
IT'S NOW A HALF MOON, WAXING.
EXT. THE POLICE STATION - NIGHT - JIMMY WALKS UP TO THE
FRONT DOOR, OPENS IT, AND ENTERS.
INT. THE STATION - JIMMY IS WALKING DOWN A HALL.
He passes Austin Baker going in the other direction
and they nod to each other.
Jimmy continues down the hall and a door opens in front
Another cop steps out without looking first, running
right into Jimmy.
Oh, I'm sorry.
It's alright. You're new, aren't
Yeah. Kevin Miller. But I'm getting
used to answering to "Rookie" and
You'll get that for a while. I'm
They shake hands.
Jimmy Bonham... I'm supposed to ride
with you tonight.
That's what Sheriff Hopper said.
He said your partner was off for
a while with some kind of an injury,
so I should ride with you.
EXT. A PATROL CAR – NIGHT - IT'S DRIVING DOWN A RESIDENTIAL
INT. THE CAR - JIMMY IS DRIVING AND MILLER IS RIDING
SHOTGUN. A SHOTGUN is ATTACHED TO THE MIDDLE OF THE
DASHBOARD WITH A LOCK.
So how long have you worked with
Too damn long.
They continue driving, looking out the windows.
Does anything ever happen here?
Well just the other week, we made a
drug bust that we’ve been on for a
Jimmy looks out the window and sees that the sky is
cloudy, but is starting to clear up. Some stars are
starting to shine.
He suddenly gets a strange feeling in the pit of his
stomach, and shifts around a bit.
Look, let’s say we start heading
back. We’ve been out here for a
while and nothing’s happened. I
don’t really feel well.
Sure. Ok. I’m only the Rookie. You
make the choices.
Jimmy looks out the window as he turns the steering
wheel, turning the car around.
They were talking about you down
at the station. They said that you
were getting married soon.
In two months. Yeah.
As he drives, Jimmy takes out a wallet and shows Miller
a picture of Monica.
Wow, she’s hot!
Jimmy looks at him.
As Jimmy puts his wallet away, Miller takes out his
and opens it.
That’s my wife and twin girls. They’re
in the terrible twos.
Jimmy looks at the wallet.
Nice family. We hope to have three
kids once we get married.
Suddenly a wolf runs out from an alley and in front
of the car.
Jimmy’s eyes go wide as he swerves the car and he
slams on the brakes just before it hit the side wall
of a building.
Jimmy and Miller breath heavily, catching their breath
as Jimmy watches the wolf run away.
Jeez, that was close.
He continued to watch the wolf, and after it got so
far away, it turned back and looked at them. Jimmy
could have sworn that he saw it looking directly at
We almost hit that kitty.
(snapping back to reality)
Good thing you swerved and missed
Jimmy looks back and sees a cat walking away from them,
across the street. He frantically looked around, but
the wolf was no where to be seen.
Did you see a wolf as well?
A wolf? Nope. Just the cat. Are you
(shaking his head)
Yeah, sure. Let’s just get back to
Jimmy starts the car back up and gets back on the road.
They continue driving back to the station.
