Part 1

Condemnation

FADE IN:

INT. Dark Red Room – FLASHBACK

A young man named TERRENCE WILSON, with long brown hair, lies on the floor dead. His corpse is curled up, with his arms crisscrossed on his chest and knees bent.

Wearing all black, the young man’s mouth and hands are drenched in blood.

Standing beside him is BRONX. In Bronx’s right hand is a gun, with a small cloud of smoke at the tip. With his long sleeved white dress shirt untucked, Bronx has on black pants, which have blood stains on them.

Bronx

(voice-over)

This is how the story ends.

This was how it was shown to me.

INT. Gray Room – PRESENT DAY

Bronx, now older and with shorter hair, punches the typewriter keys rapidly with his fingers. A burnt white candle lights the large gray room with its small flame.

BRONX

(voice-over)

Now I have questions.

Who am I? Who was I?

And as I write this down…

How close am I to the monster I saw?

He leans back in his chair and stares at the ceiling.

CUT TO:

INT. War Room

LAURENCE, a tall black man wearing a black suit and matching tie, stands in front of a large white screen.

Laurence

You have a job to do, Bronx.

Wearing an untucked white dress shirt and black pants, Bronx smiles sarcastically as he sits leaning back against his chair.

Next to him is a clear glass table. On top of the clear glass table is a gun. 

BRONX

So what else is new?

Laurence points his finger at Bronx.

LAURENCE

This isn’t your usual type of mission.

This is a break-in.

Bronx holds his chin up with his right hand.

BRONX

I’m breaking into prison?

Laurence looks at Bronx steadily.

LAURENCE

No, not prison. You’re going to break into Hell.

A smirk widens across Bronx’s face.

BRONX

Yeah right.

Laurence stands with his arms spread across.

LAURENCE

Forget what you know from Dante…

BRONX

Don’t even know who she is.

EXT. Hell – DAY

Fire engulfs the desert as the sand forms towers and buildings that look like castles. The river of boiling lava leads straight to Hell.

LAURENCE

(voice-over)

Hell is a prison.

Imagine paying for your crimes for eternity.

Imagine the worst punishment…

so cruel…

Happening to you over and over again.

A demon with large bat-like wings whips the men and women chained together, as if they were his prisoners.

LAURENCE

(voice-over)

Time has no place here.

A day is a week.

A year could be a decade.

The demon raises a frightened woman over its head.

LAURENCE

(voice-over)

And the pain never ends here.

INT. War Room

A close-up on Bronx’s worried face.

BRONX

And you want me to go down there?

Laurence points his finger at the large white screen.

LAURENCE

Yes. For him.

On the screen is a snarling beast with yellow horns on his head. This is PETRACH.

LAURENCE

It’s a snatch and grab job.

Go to Hell, grab him, and get out.

Bronx smacks his head.

BRONX

That actually sounds easy.

Laurence places his arms behind him, shakes his head.

LAURENCE

But it’s not.

BRONX

It usually isn’t.

Close-up on the Petrach’s face.

BRONX

Mind telling me why he’s in Hell?

LAURENCE

Cannibalism.

Bronx scratches his head.

BRONX

Forget I asked.

I got another question though.

Just how am I going to get in and out of there?

Laurence places a yellow cube on the glass table.

LAURENCE

This is your map of Hell. Just follow the red line.

Bronx picks up the yellow cube and stares at its glowness.

BRONX

Cute. My own map. So when do I start?

Laurence looks at his watch.

LAURENCE

Sunrise.

Bronx stands in front of Laurence.

BRONX

When I finish this, you’ll give me another piece of my memory right?

LAURENCE

Yes. Another piece of the puzzle.

Just like in the deal.

You serve the Agency.

We give you a slice of memory back.

BRONX

Because I want to know who I am.

LAURENCE

We all would like to know who we are.

It’s part of our human nature.

INT. Strip Club – FLASHBACK

Bronx kicks down the front doors of the Strip Club.

Wide shot of the entire strip club. The STRIPPER in front of the pole looks shocked. The WAITRESS IN BLACK drops the drinks from her plate. A crowd of REGULARS are yelling at the intruder.

Bronx stands at the center of the bright red room as he looks around.

The BARTENDER starts to yell at Bronx as he appears in the reflection of the mirror behind him.

BARTENDER

Do I have to call the cops on you?

Bronx shoves the Bartender against the mirror and shatters the glass. As loud as he can over the blaring music, he yells into the Bartender’s ear while grabbing his collar.

BRONX

Terence Wilson! Where is he?

BARTENDER

Who?

Bronx punches the Bartender.

BRONX

Where is Terence Wilson?

Close-up on the Bartender’s broken nose and bloody lip.

BARTENDER

He’s my boss!

Bronx slams the Bartender against the bar. He then grabs a beer bottle and breaks it in half.

Close-up on the sharp edges of the broken bottle.

BRONX

I know he’s your boss! Where is he?

The Bartender points at the brown door in the corner.

BARTENDER

He’s in his booth! He’s in his private booth!

INT. Limousine – PRESENT DAY

Bronx has now become the deadly assassin and hired goon known as SIXKILLER.

LAURENCE

Still thinking about it, aren’t you?

Sitting in the back of the limousine with Laurence, SixKiller is wearing a black trenchcoat, matching pants, and an untucked white dress shirt.

Close-up of SixKiller’s gun in one hand and a chain in the other hand.

SIXKILLER

I’m coming back for that other piece of the puzzle.

Close-up of the chain hooking to the handle of the gun.

LAURENCE

And I’ll be here. I’m your handler.

EXT. Construction Site – NIGHT

Laurence opens the door to the limousine.

LAURENCE

But first, you have a job to do.

Laurence and SixKiller walk across the construction site and stop at the large crater.

Circled around the crater are SIX RED ROBED MEN.

SixKiller slides down the side of the crater.

SIXKILLER

Send me to Hell, guys.

The Six Red Robed Men begin to chant.

SixKiller closes his eyes. The floor begins to crack beneath him.

All of a sudden, blue fire engulfs SixKiller’s entire body.

EXT. Hell – NIGHT

SixKiller opens his eyes and meets a surprise visitor.

DEATH

Welcome.

DEATH is a black robed figure with a scythe in one hand.

Death raises his skeletal hands and points at the sailboat floating in the dark waters.

DEATH

It is time to go.

INT. Boat – NIGHT

The boat shoots across the water.

SixKiller sits in the boat staring at the back of Death.

SIXKILLER

Are you the Devil? Are you God? Are you both?

Death does not respond.

SixKiller looks at the murky water where no animal, no fish appears to live.

SIXKILLER

So what was it like meeting Elvis?

I mean, was he really that fat when you saw him?

Death turns his head around.

DEATH

We are here.

EXT. Fortress – NIGHT

The orange sky is filled with gray smoke. There are small, thin shapes of buildings up ahead.

SIXKILLER

That’s a lot of sulfur I smell.

SixKiller stood high atop the mountain looking down on humans carrying stones on their back, the demons whipping them, and the winged beasts flying around the towers.

Close-up of SixKiller’s red eyes.

As his eyes become a magnifying glass, SixKiller spots male and female PRISONERS inside a cage on top of a wagon. The wagon rides across a drawbridge into the castle.

TWO WARRIOR DEMONS stand guard inside the castle. They carry spears and wear helmets on their heads.

SIXKILLER

I know how I can get in.

INT. Strip Club – FLASHBACK

Close-up of the Red-Haired STRIPPER’s face.

The Red Haired Stripper dances in front of the two way mirror.

Alone in the long red hallway, Terrence Wilson, a young man with long blonde hair, sits in a green chair. Beside him are other empty chairs, other mirrors in the red room.

Close-up of Terrence’s face.

TERRENCE

You cannot see me.

You cannot know how much I want you.

I want you for myself.

Close-up of the Red-Haired Stripper’s face.

TERRENCE

You don’t want me.

You don’t want anything to do with me.

That’s what makes this so exciting.

Terrence slowly takes out the switchblade from his pocket.

TERRENCE

I get to force myself on you.

Terrence touches the mirror with his hands. After Bronx rams through the brown door with his elbow, Terrence turns around shocked.

TERRENCE

Who the hell are you?

Bronx raises the gun high.

Terence drops the knife and raises his hands.

TERRENCE

What do you want?

Close-up on the barrel of Bronx’s gun.

EXT. Hell – NIGHT – PRESENT DAY

Using his super-speed, SixKiller takes the WARRIOR’s sword, slices him across the chest, and chops off the head of the next WARRIOR.

From afar, SixKiller aims and fires a shot at the lock on the wagon.

A trail of fire follows behind SixKiller as he dashes towards the castle.

EXT. Castle – NIGHT

In front of SixKiller is a doorway.

INT. First Level of Hell

Behind this doorway are bodies frozen in ice. Snow falls from the blue sky.

INT. Second Level of Hell

There are CHILDREN, around the age of 7, with blonde hair and blue eyes. They are eating the flesh of human bones.

INT. Third Level of Hell

WHITE FACED VAMPIRES are biting the body parts of a NAKED WOMAN. Her arms and legs are tied to a long table.

INT. Fourth Level of Hell

BLEEDING MEN AND WOMEN are hung upside down from hooks as if they were stacks of meat. GIANT MONSTROUS HOGS are eating their hands. The eyes of the hogs are glowing yellow. The number 4 is painted on the wall.

INT. Fifth Level of Hell

A gigantic spider web covers the entire area. HUMANS are wrapped inside the ball of a spider web. The webbing burns their bodies as if it were acid. The victims howl in pain as colossal black SPIDERS crawl around the web.

INT. Sixth Level of Hell

MEN AND WOMEN force their hands, faces through a wall of clay. Their screams are muffled.

INT. Stairway

SixKiller runs up the steps of a circular stairway.

SIXKILLER

Poor bastards need help but they deserved this.

Nothing I can do for them.

INT. Seventh Level of Hell

There are torches on the walls of the long hallway. Bars of fire keeps the prisoners inside cells. Howling like wolves, demons pace back and forth inside their the prison cells.

SixKiller holds the yellow cube in front of his face and notices the red dot bleeping inside.

Dressed in all black, Petrach sits behind the bars of fire. His arms and legs are locked in chains.

PETRACH

I’ve been waiting.

SixKiller stands behind the bars of fire.

SIXKILLER

I’m only going to say this once.

I don’t care why you’re wanted back on earth.

Let the others deal with you.

I’m here to break you out but if you decide to eat me,

I don’t have a problem killing you.

PETRACH

Just do your job.

SixKiller cracks his knuckles

SIXKILLER

No problem.

SixKiller grabs the bars of fire with his bare hands and tears the wall apart. He then looks at his hands covered in smoke.

SIXKILLER

Damn that hurt.

SixKiller pulls on the chains of the demon.

SIXKILLER

Come on lil doggie, let’s get out of here.

EXT. Times Square – Nighttime – FLASHBACK 

We’re back at a decadent time when sex shops ran freely in New York City. The letters XXX are glowing red in the dark sky. 

Bronx walks in-between cars locked in the traffic jam. He holds a gun in his hand.

Close-up on Bronx’s face. A line of blood flows crookedly down his forehead.

Bronx passes the red stoplight.

Close-up on Bronx’s face yelling.

Bronx hurries up and rushes across the traffic jam.

EXT. Strip Club – NIGHT

Bronx hits his shoulder against a red fire hydrant as he comes crashing down. In front of him is a glowing green strip club.

THE BOUNCER sees Bronx crawling on his hands and knees. The Bouncer is a muscle man with a purple top and black jeans.

BOUNCER

Hey man, are you okay?

Bronx wipes the blood off his forehead.

BOUNCER

Do you want me to call the hospital for you?

Bronx stands up drunkenly.

The Bouncer puts his hands in front of Bronx, pushing him aside.

BOUNCER

You think I’m going to let you in here like that?

Bronx punches The Bouncer’s face with his right fist.

EXT. Hell – DAWN – PRESENT DAY

SixKiller punches a GUARD with his right fist, rolls across the floor, and picks up a sword. He then stabs the side of another Guard with the sword and grabs his axe.

He drives the axe straight through the Warrior’s chest and stabs his side with the sword. He pulls both weapons out of the Warrior’s body, slicing him in half.

SixKiller poses triumphantly with both bloody weapons in his his hands. He stands on top of a bloody pile of demon parts.

The DEMON DOG stares at SixKiller with its bright red eyes. The Demon Dog has two sets of fangs, four claws, and a deformed body. Human faces squirm through the deformed body.

SixKiller fires both guns as he runs straight across, while Death sits inside the sailboat.

SIXKILLER

Get to the boat!

Another DEMON WARRIOR tackles SixKiller from behind.

Close-up on SixKilller’s wrist as a knife pops out. He pierces the Warrior’s eye with the knife when his eyes spot the Demon Dog running towards him.

Close-up on the gun hooked to the chain lying on the ground.

SixKiller shoves the dead Warrior aside, yanks the chain towards him, and raises the gun high as the Demon Dog jumps right at him.

The gun is pointed at the Demon Dog’s mouth when the beast swallows half of SixKiller’s arm.

Point of view inside the dog’s mouth. The sets of fangs pierce through the arm.

SixKiller screams in pain.

SIXKILLER

Aaah!

A bullet blasts through the Demon Dog’s head, splattering brain bits all over the ground.

The Demon Dog lies dead next to SixKiller.

SIXKILLER

No!

SixKiller is just staring at half of his bloody right arm when Petrach picks him up. With whatever strength he has left, Sixkiller shoves the sailboat with his elbow.

PETRACH

Move it! Move it!

SixKiller crashes onto the murky waters.

Shot from the murky waters. SixKiller floats on the water as if he’s dead.

EXT. Construction Site – NIGHT

Laurence stands in front of the limousine’s bright headlights.

LAURENCE

It’s been a week. He should have been here already.

Blue flames suddenly burst out of the crater.

SixKiller and Petrach lie inside the circle of blue fire.

Laurence slides down with a group of SOLDIERS beside him.

SixKiller just sees a blurred image of Laurence before he passes out.

LAURENCE

Bronx!

INT. Pawn Shop – FLASHBACK

Bronx enters the small Pawn Shop violently. The room is filled with heads of animals, a deer and a moose, the antiques are on the side, and rifles hang from the wall behind THE MANAGER.

Bronx angrily grabs the Manager by his collar.

BRONX

I want a gun!

MANAGER

They cost money!

Bronx slams his fist on the Manager’s desk.

BRONX

How much can I get with this?

Close-up of the diamond ring.

EXT. Pawn Shop/Street – NIGHT 

Bronx leaves the Pawn Shop, where a blue car is parked on the street.

INT. Blue Car

Bronx places the gun on top of the passenger seat as he starts the engine. He stares across angrily after placing his hands on the steering wheel.

EXT. Streets – NIGHT

The blue car hits a parked vehicle on the driver’s side. A burst of sparks fly off the driver’s door.

Just when the blue car passes a red stoplight, a yellow taxi crashes into the engine.

The blue car starts to spin, causing the emergency airbag to pop out of the steering wheel.

The bashed-in blue car lies parked in the middle of the street.

EXT. Construction Site – NIGHT – PRESENT DAY

Close-up of SixKiller’s ripped bloody arm.

Laurence gets hold of a SOLDIER.

LAURENCE

Get a medic now! And get that freak out of here!

Close-up of SixKiller’s bruised face.

SIXKILLER

Bastards! They took my hand!

EXT. Streets – NIGHT – FLASHBACK

Bronx’s head lies on top of the emergency airbag. A bloody line drips down from his forehead.

Part 2

Don’t Fear The Reaper

EXT. Streets – NIGHT – FLASHBACK

Bronx lies his head on top of the emergency airbag from the steering wheel. There is a bloody line flowing down from his forehead.

BRONX

(voice-over)

How many times have I faced death and cheated? How many times has my soul asked for a quick and painless death?

INT. HOSPITAL – PRESENT DAY

Lying on a hospital stretcher, Bronx has blood all over his face and shirt. A black leather belt is used as a tourniquet for his half ripped arm. 

BRONX

(voice-over)

Here I am back again at Death’s door.

I can hear my heartbeat fading.

From the point of view of Bronx, DOCTORS and NURSES wearing mouth masks and white clothing are looking down on him. A Doctor is shining a bright white flashlight at Bronx’s eyes.

DOCTOR

Get him to the OR!

NURSE

We’re losing him!

Still from Bronx’s point of view, Laurence’s head barges in between the doctors and nurses.

LAURENCE

You’re going to make it, Bronx! Just hang in there!

Bronx grabs hold of Laurence’s wrist with his left hand.

Close-up of Bronx’s bruised and bloody face. He is breathing air from his mouth mask.

BRONX

Don’t let him kill me.

The Nurse brushes Laurence aside.

LAURENCE

What?

The Doctors and Nurses take Bronx through the rooms of the OR. Bronx lifts his head up from the stretcher.

BRONX

It’s here!

EXT. Streets – DUSK – FLSHBACK

The Audience sees a black and white photo of Terence Wilson.

BRONX

Do you know who this is?

THE MAN WITH A LONG WHITE BEARD shakes his head.

Bronx puts the photo inside his black trenchcoat. He doesn’t care about the drops of rain dripping onto his sleeve.

INT. Streets – NIGHT

Bronx pulls up his collar as he looks up at the sky while the rain is pouring. Lightning strikes behind him.

He walks alone across the empty streets of Manhattan.

INT. Pool Hall

Close-up of THE THUG’s mouth with a black beard and a cigarette.

THUG

Yeah. I’ve seen that guy before.

Bronx is inside a dark and seedy pool hall with red walls. The Thug is wearing a black vest and white shirt with brown pants.

The Thug hits the white ball with his cue stick.

THUG

Question is: What do you want with him?

I mean, I don’t like him.

He owes me money but I’ll get it from him one way or another.

Medium shot of Bronx standing all wet.

THUG

You don’t look like a cop. What’s your story?

Bronx leans in closer to The Thug.

BRONX

I’m going to kill him.

The Thug smiles.

THUG

His name is Terry Wilson.

BRONX

I know his name.

THUG

But you don’t know where he works.

You’ll find him at the strip club he owns.

BRONX

Where is it?

INT. Operating Room – PRESENT DAY

Bronx grabs the neck of The Doctor in front of him.

BRONX

Where is it?

DOCTOR

Nurse!

Two Nurses attempt to sedate Bronx.

DOCTOR

We have to operate now!

The Nurse opens up the valve more as Bronx starts to slowly close his eyes.

BRONX

I want my arm back. Give me my arm back.

INT. Waiting Room

Laurence is watching all of this from above behind the glass.

A SOLDIER enters the room from the back.

LAURENCE

Yes.

SOLDIER

Area’s secure.

LAURENCE

Check again.

SOLDIER

Are you sure sir?

LAURENCE

Yes. Something’s out there and we have to be ready.

SOLDIER

But sir we don’t know what it looks like.

EXT. Hospital – NIGHT

A hearse enters the parking lot of the hospital. The door to the hearse opens and two shiny black shoes come out.

SKULL wears a black blazer, a white shirt, and a thin red tie. He is well-built, tall, and bald. His face has been carved into the shape of a skull.

Skull sees TWO NURSES waiting at the green bench next to the bus stop. He puts his black-gloved hand into his blazer’s pocket, walks towards them, and takes out a shiny scalpel.

One of the Nurses turns around.

Skull slashes across swiftly.

The Nurse’s face is cut. She screams as her face is drenched in blood.

NURSE

Aaah!

Skull punches the other Nurse in the face and slashes again swiftly.

A look of shock appears the Nurses’s face just before her head falls off her neck.

The bus arrives.

INT. Bus

From the point of view of the BUS DRIVER, he sees Skull standing in front of the open bus doors with blood all over his gloves, scalpel, and bald forehead.

The doors close in on Skull’s chest as he jumps inside.

EXT. Streets – NIGHT

Wide shot of the bus speeding across the street with half of Skull hanging from the doors.

Skull keeps his feet running as the wheels are spinning.

INT. Bus

Skull slashes the air back and forth trying to get the Bus Driver.

The PASSENGERS are running to the back of the bus.

Skull throws the scalpel, like an arrow, and hits the Bus Driver’s neck.

EXT. Streets – NIGHT

The bus suddenly stops at a red light.

INT. Bus

Skull takes out the scalpel and smiles as blood erupts from the Driver’s neck.

All of the Passengers are standing in the back.

The lights turn off inside the bus.

EXT. Streets – NIGHT

The bus shakes as the Passengers scream for their lives.

PASSENGERS

Nooo!

INT. Operating Room

Bronx’s heartbeat goes flat on the screen.

The Doctor grabs the defibrillator.

DOCTOR

We’re losing him!

The Doctor puts the defibrillator on Bronx’s chest.

NURSE

Clear!

Bronx’s body jumps a bit from the table. Blue streams of electricity ripple across his chest.

INT. Interrogation room – FLASHBACK

The Audience SEES a large black and white photo of Terence Wilson.

Detective

Have you seen his man before?

Bronx sits underneath a bright white light.

BRONX

No I haven’t.

Medium shot of THE DETECTIVE. He is wearing a gray suit with a red tie. His hair is combed back with gel. The gun hangs from the shoulder holster.

DETECTIVE

Are you sure?

BRONX

Yes.

DETECTIVE

Does the name, Terrence Wilson, ring a bell?

Bronx shakes his head.

BRONX

Am I a suspect?

DETECTIVE

Just checking all the possibilities. I talked to the doctors before.

Bronx looks at The Detective.

BRONX

So you know.

DETECTIVE

It’s sad news.

I know that this type of news tears a person apart.

A person can’t control what he is thinking.

I know you’re losing your mind.

You’re grabbing the arm of that chair really tightly.

Bronx loosens his grip on the arm chair as he pulls his hair back with both of his hands.

DETECTIVE

Here’s the truth.

I got this photo from the camera of the ATM machine.

The Detective puts in the videotape into the VHS machine beneath the television set.

The screen of the television set is black and white. A WOMAN WITH BROWN HAIR is waiting for the ATM machine to make its transaction.

Suddenly the Woman is attacked by Terrence Wilson.

Bronx turns his head as he bites his lip.

The Detective turns off the television set.

DETECTIVE

She means something to you, doesn’t she.

EXT. Cemetery – NIGHT – FLASH FORWARD

Bronx imagines he is howling at the dark blue night sky in front of a tombstone. The wind is blowing his black trenchcoat harshly.

INT. Interrogation Room – FLASHBACK CONTINUES 

The Detective stands at the corner.

DETECTIVE

Terence Wilson got out based on a technicality.

He was able to pay for his bail today.

BRONX

But what about…?

DETECTIVE

It won’t be able to hold him in court.

Court takes too long.

You don’t have time and that’s what we need.

Bronx bows his head.

BRONX

Then there’s nothing…

DETECTIVE

Just because I can’t get to Terrence Wilson, doesn’t mean you can’t. Someone like Terrence Wilson always has too many enemies. A detective like me would have a lot of people to investigate. Each lead would turn into a dead end. Now I don’t have to remind you that this conversation never happened.

INT. Operating Room – PRESENT DAY

Bronx’s heart begins to beat again on the screen.

Close-up of the Doctor.

DOCTOR

He’s not out of the woods yet, people! Where’s that arm?

TWO SOLDIERS enter the OR with a large white box. Laurence stands at the open doorway.

LAURENCE

Will this work doctor?

DOCTOR

I want to believe so.

LAURENCE

What do you mean?

DOCTOR

 Theoretically, it’s supposed to. I still don’t know how his body will react to the new arm.

LAURENCE

How long will it take?

DOCTOR

Six hours.

LAURENCE

Well then make it happen, doctor.

DISSOLVE TO:

Time has passed. The Doctor’s white gloves are drenched in blood.

It is now 8:00 on the digital clock.

INT. Waiting Room

Laurence paces around the room. His collar is open, his sleeves are rolled up, and his blazer is on the the couch.

The Nurse barges out of the OR.

NURSE

I think I’m going to throw up!

INT. Operating Room

It is now 4:00 on the digital clock.

The Doctor holds the scalpel steady in his hand. Sweat pours down his face.

INT. Hospital Room

Bronx wakes up from his hospital bed. There is a television set on in the background.

From Bronx’s point a view, Laurence is smiling as he stands next to the hospital bed.

LAURENCE

Welcome back to the living.

BRONX

I hate it when you say that to me.

Bronx rubs his eyes with his left hand as he yawns.

BRONX

I feel strange.

LAURENCE

That’s because of your new arm. You’ll get used to it.

Half of Bronx’s new arm is made of metal. The right arm looks like it used to be part of a robot. Five fingers like a human hand but there are large round bolts for the knuckles.

Bronx makes a tight fist with his new arm.

BRONX

Okay. First I want my pants.

Then you’re going to tell me what the hell this is.

Laurence throws Bronx his black pants.

LAURENCE

State of the art military X15.

You now have the strength of a new man.

Plus some other 100 advantages men would like to have.

Bronx opens his right hand wide in front of his face.

BRONX

So picking my nose will be an adventure then.

Bronx stretches both of his arms. Laurence stands in front of the window looking at the night sky.

LAURENCE

Laugh it up. We’ll start some tests after you’re done here.

BRONX

Did you catch the guy I was talking to you about?

Close-up of Laurence’s face as he turns his head slightly.

LAURENCE

What exactly did you see?

Bronx flexes his new arm.

BRONX

I didn’t see him.

I sensed him around.

I felt something coming towards the hospital.

Laurence and Bronx stand face to face.

BRONX

You didn’t catch the guy yet, have you?

LAURENCE

No.

BRONX

Then we have to find him.

He’s inside the hospital right now.

Laurence and Bronx run out the room together.

INT. Hospital – FLASHBACK

The doors to the OR open.

The Woman With Brown Hair is lying in the stretcher. Doctors and Nurses surround her as she’s brought into the emergency room.

Bronx is there by her side holding her lifeless hand.

Close-up on Bronx’s hand holding hers.

THE NURSE holds back Bronx with her hands on his shoulders.

NURSE

You have to stay here. No one is allowed in the OR.

BRONX

But she’s my…

From Bronx’s point of view, a close-up of the Nurse’s face. Behind her, The Woman With Brown Hair is rushed past the doors.

NURSE

You’re going to have to wait just like the others. Please sir, let us take care of her.

INT. Waiting Room

Bronx sits alone in the Waiting Room with his hands covering his face. A large brown crucifix hangs on the wall above his head.

INT. Hospital Room

In the same position, Bronx sits beside the woman with his hands covering his face. The walls are white, matching the hospital bed covers, as the sun shines through the window brilliantly.

The Woman breathes through the help of the machines. There are bandages around her hands and forehead. She has a black eye, a bruised red cheek, and a cut on her lip.

Close-up of Bronx touching her hand.

Bronx has both of his hands on top of hers.

BRONX

I should have been there for you.

Bronx leans against his chair with his head back.

DOCTOR

Excuse me…

After standing up, Bronx and THE DOCTOR look at each other.

DOCTOR

Are you…

BRONX

I am.

DOCTOR

Could we talk outside a bit?

INT. Chapel

Bronx faces the large brown crucifix  as the Doctor sits in the pew.

BRONX

Tell me what’s the prognosis.

Doctor

It doesn’t look good. If she was brought in sooner, maybe we could have done a lot more.

I’m afraid she doesn’t have a lot of time left.

Bronx bows his head,as he were praying to the crucifix.

BRONX

How much?

DOCTOR

A week.

INT. Elevator – PRESENT DAY

SixKiller and Laurence are standing inside a large gray elevator.

LAURENCE

What floor?

SIXKILLER

The seventh.

LAURENCE

And you know this because?

SIXKILLER

Senses. You trained me! You know this more than me!

Blood suddenly seeps through the elevator doors.

INT. Seventh Floor

The elevator door opens. The entire floor is covered with blood. A PATIENT is lying on the floor caked in blood. She has no skin on her face and hands.

Another PATIENT is sitting on the floor dead leaning against the wall. He has no head.

Laurence takes out his gun out from his shoulder holster as SixKiller marches forward.

SIXKILLER

I wish I put my shoes back on.

Skull approaches them with the bloody scalpel in hand. His feet are floating above ground.

SIXKILLER

What the hell is that?

Laurence fires three shots.

Three holes appear in Skull’s chest.

Skull bows his head, looks at the bullet holes, and lifts up his head smiling.

SixKiller punches Skull with his left hand. Skull swings back with a right, throwing his opponent through three rooms.

At point-blank range, Laurence fires three more shots into Skull’s face.

Skull’s cheek has now been chipped and his forehead is cracked.

Laurence’s eyes widen when he pulls the trigger of an empty gun twice.

Skull throws Laurence against the wall and stabs his shoulder with the scalpel.

SIXKILLER

Larry!

Laurence lies on the floor as SixKiller shoves Skull through the wall.

INT. Hospital Room

The room is covered in blood. There is a television set locked to the wall. Blood is on the covers of the hospital bed.

Skull rises from the floor as SixKiller lies motionless.

Like a slasher in a horror movie, Skull raises the scalpel upside down.

SixKiller covers his head with his new metallic arm as Skull takes a stab at it. He then reaches out and drives his metallic fingers into Skull’s face.

SixKiller lifts Skull up to the ceiling with his right metallic arm.

Using his super-speed, SixKiller rams Skull up against the wall and drives Skull’s head straight into the television set.

Blue electricity flows from Skull’s screaming face through SixKiller’s metallic arm. Flames cover Skull’s cheeks and eyes.

SKULL

Skreee!

All of a sudden, Skull’s head explodes.

With half of his metallic arm on fire, SixKiller drops the rest of Skull’s body onto the floor.

INT. Hospital Cafeteria – PRESENT DAY

SixKiller is watching Laurence eat as they sit at a table in an empty cafeteria. Since the attack, Laurence’s arm is now in a cast.

BRONX

For once, I’d like to know why my enemies are after me.

LAURENCE

Forget about it. It’s all part of the job.

BRONX

Too many questions with little or no answers.

LAURENCE

Hey my wife thinks I’m a janitor.

BRONX

Wife?

LAURENCE

Yeah I’m married.

BRONX

I didn’t know that.

LAURENCE

Why would you? It’s not like I liked you before.

Hey if it makes you feel any better…now you do.

BRONX

Larry?

LAURENCE

Yeah.

BRONX

We’ve become friends haven’t we?

Laurence thinks about it for a moment.

LAURENCE

Yeah I guess we have.

BRONX

Then I guess I can tell you this.

LAURENCE

What is it?

BRONX

I think I used to be married.

EXT. Forest – Day – FLASHBACK

On a beautiful sunny day, with a clear blue sky, Bronx pushes The Woman With Brown Hair on a swing.

The Audience sees her smiling and swinging upside down.

INT. Cafeteria – PRESENT DAY

Laurence looks at Bronx shocked.

LAURENCE

But protocol says…

BRONX

It happened when I was being operated on.

I saw my past. I saw her.

Bronx opens his soda in front of Laurence.

BRONX

I know her name.

LAURENCE

Who?

BRONX

The Woman With Brown Hair.

Part 3

Blue In The Face

INT. Restaurant – FLASHBACK

Bronx sits alone in the large restaurant holding a small red box in his left hand. His table has a white cloth on top and the last couple is leaving behind him. Bronx sits in the center of the room surrounded by empty tables.

BRONX

(voice-over)

The name of the woman I loved was Rachel.

How did I find out her name? It was whispered to me when I was asleep.

It took a whisper to tell me how the story begins.

EXT. Open Road – NIGHT – PRESENT DAY

No stars in the sky. A crescent moon hovers behind a large red castle. At a far distance, a BLACK CAR drives across the muddy road rapidly.

The headlights are shining white rays on the ground when the tires blow out.

The black car swerves, hitting a nearby telephone pole. A large white spark blasts between the passenger side and the telephone pole. The trunk suddenly jerks open in the back.

The black car hurtles into a large pit with the trunk wide open.

Inside the trunk are the decapitated heads of men and women. Each of them have a different facial expression.

Close-up of the Male’s head. The man looks like he is screaming while bugs are roaming around inside his mouth.

Close-up of the Female’s head. The woman looks like she is laughing hysterically. She has no eyes in her empty sockets. 

Inside the black car, THE DRIVER sits in his seat with his head twisted backwards. The emergency airbag popped open during the crash. With his mouth covered in red blood, the Driver’s hair is pure white as if he was scared to death.

EXT. Same Open Road – Dawn

Time has passed and a new day has arrives. A large white VAN drives across the paved road towards the red castle.

INT. White van

Inside the white van are THE THREE GHOST TRACKERS and SixKiller. SixKiller sits on top of a brown crate with his trenchcoat buttoned up.

Sitting next to SixKiller is DRAKE, a well-built man carrying a machine-gun with a flashlight on top. His short hair is blonde and spiky. A dagger is strapped to his right boot.

Sitting in front of SixKiller is CHERI, a woman wearing a tight green shirt and her red hair is tied back.

Driving the van is GARY, a thin man with long brown hair wearing a white shirt and blue jeans.

EXT. Castle – DAWN

The large white van parks in front of the red castle.

SixKiller gets out of the van through the back doors. He covers his metallic hand with a black glove.

SIXKILLER

So what am I doing here exactly?

Gary closes the driver’s door as he looks at the red castle, seen in the reflection of his glasses.

Gary

Hunting ghosts. Didn’t your superiors tell you?

SixKiller stands in front of Cheri.

SIXKILLER

Larry just told me you three needed help.

CHERI

Larry?

SIXKILLER

Oh yeah. He’s Laurence to you people.

CHERI

Don’t you handle missions dealing with the paranormal?

SIXKILLER

If that’s what it says on my resume,

then that’s what I do.

Gary looks at the screen of the black box that is similar to a calculator but not.

GARY

Is everyone ready?

Gary moves the black box around as he stares the top of the red castle. Gargoyles sit at the edge, as if they’re the ones studying them.

GARY

Because it looks like we have a long day ahead of us.

The Three Ghost Trackers stand together. While the trio talks together like a team, SixKiller walks towards the red castle.

DRAKE

Should we knock first?

GARY

Well I don’t have a key.

CHERI

Why don’t we…

INT. Red Castle

SixKiller kicks the ancient doors open.

INT. Apartment Room – FLASHBACK

Wearing a pink blouse, RACHEL opens the white door as she carries letters in her right hand.

From Rachel’s point of view, she sees red roses scattered all over the floor.

She laughs as Bronx grabs her waist from behind.

Rachel and Bronx dance at the center of the small white apartment room. The white sofa, a television set, and a kitchen all fit tightly in one room.

Bronx circles Rachel with one hand as she reads each letter aloud.

BRONX

Anything?

Rachel

Just a second. Umm. Let’s see.

Bills, bills, junk, and…

Rachel’s jaw drops as she stares at the white envelope.

RACHEL

Oh my god.

Close-up of Bronx laying his forehead against hers.

BRONX

What happened?

RACHEL

They responded.

BRONX

And?

Rachel walks backwards away from Bronx.

RACHEL

I don’t want to. I can’t open it.

BRONX

Aww. Don’t tell me you’re afraid.

RACHEL

What if they said no to me?

Bronx lays his hands on Rachel’s shoulders.

BRONX

Then they said no. Open it!

RACHEL

No.

BRONX

Open it.

RACHEL

No.

Close-up of Bronx snatching the letter from Rachel.

BRONX

Well if you’re not going to open it, I will.

Rachel chases Bronx around the bedroom.

INT. Bedroom

RACHEL

Give that back!

BRONX

No.

RACHEL

Give that back!

Rachel slaps Bronx’s head with her hands as if it was a bongo.

BRONX

Okay! Okay! I give! I give!

Rachel continues to bop his head before she laughs and hits the bed on her back.

Bronx rips the envelope from the side.

BRONX

Okay. Okay. Let’s see.

Bronx raises the letter over his head.

BRONX

I’m reading. I’m reading.

RACHEL

Read it!

BRONX

Dear Rachel Blah Blah Blah.

After careful consideration and reviews over your application…

Rachel laughs as she throws the white pillow at Bronx.

BRONX

Congratulations! You got the job!

Rachel grabs the letter back from Bronx and leaves the room screaming in joy.

RACHEL

I got the job! I got the job!

Bronx lowers his head in sadness.

BRONX

Yeah. You got the job.

INT. Red Castle – PRESENT DAY

SixKiller walks across the floor that looks like a chessboard and steps onto the black square. There is an old chandelier hanging from the ceiling.

A portrait of a wealthy Englishman hangs on the wall. The circular staircase is covered in cobwebs. A few blocks of wood are inside the fireplace.

The Three Ghost Trackers and SixKiller look around the room. SixKiller scratches his head.

SIXKILLER

Hey, ghostbusters, where’s my proton pack and my electro-trap?

Gary looks at his black box, which has green lines zigzagging on the screen.

GARY

We don’t catch ghosts, we study them.

Judging by these readings,

we have a lot of studying to do.

SixKiller points his thumb at the portrait of the wealthy Englishman.

SIXKILLER

Who’s this clown?

Cheri is reading a passage from a red journal.

CHERI

Lord Stanton of the 1870s.

It was believed that he was possessed by a demon.

INT. Dining room – FLASHBACK

The year is 1870. Lord Stanton stands on top of a long brown table with an axe raised above his head. Stanton’s WIFE, wearing a large white dress, is terribly frightened by him. His own children, A BOY AND GIRL, are screaming at him. A large turkey has been placed at the center of the table.

TERI

(voice-over)

Lord Stanton killed his entire family with an axe.

They were eating their Thanksgiving dinner when he suddenly attacked them.

He collected their heads and hid them in the basement.

EXT. RED CASTLE – NIGHT – FLASHBACK

VILLAGERS stampede through the doors with pickaxes and torches in their hands.

CHERI

(voice-over)

When the local residents found out, they did what any mob would do.

EXT. Small Town – NIGHT – FLASHBACK

Lord Stanton screams as the red flames melt his flesh.

TERI

(voice-over)

They burned him alive.

EXT. Red Castle – NIGHT – PRESENT DAY

The red castle glows in the blue night sky with the full yellow moon hovering over it.

TERI

(voice-over)

The mob destroyed the man but not the thing that lived inside him.

INT. Red Castle – Present Day 

Same place but a different time. THE NEW RESIDENTS, looking like the Beavers TV family, stand at the front doors smiling.

CHERI

(voice-over)

A new family bought the castle and decided to live here.

INT. RED CASTLE

The HUSBAND cuts the WIFE’s head off with the axe at the circular staircase.

CHERI

(voice-over)

And the same thing happened. But this time though…

EXT. Small Town – Night

The Husband knocks twice at the red door of a white house.

When the door opens, the Husband drives the axe into the HOMEOWNER’s face.

CHERI

(voice-over)

He went after the townspeople.

INT. Red Castle

Behind SixKiller, the sun is about to set through the window.

SIXKILLER

I guess I’m here to help.

You want to catch the bogeyman.

No problem.

I get a new story to tell at the bar tomorrow.

SixKiller covers his face with his hand when he sees the flash of a camera.

SIXKILLER

So what do we do now?

Drake takes another polaroid of SixKiller.

DRAKE

Same thing we always do on each mission.

Drake hands SixKiller the picture he took.

DRAKE

We wait for the ghosts to make a move.

EXT. Red Castle – NIGHT

A large black cloud covers the full white moon hovering over the red castle.

INT. Bedroom

Unable to sleep, SixKiller lies on the luxurious bed staring at the picture Drake took of him. His trenchcoat sits at the edge of the luxurious bed.

SixKiller holds the picture that was taken of him with his metallic right hand. In the picture, a line of white light appears between SixKiller’s neck and face. It looks like his head was cut off.

SixKiller jumps up from his bed when he hears a VOICE.

Woman

Help me.

SixKiller looks left and right after he hears the voice again.

WOMAN

Help me.

SixKiller flips the rich covers off his bed.

He didn’t even realize he was lying on a waterbed. Inside the bed was a WOMAN WITH RED HAIR swimming in the water. She smiled at him as her yellow eyes sparkled.

All of a sudden, the Woman With Red Hair drags SixKiller inside the water bed. The clear blue water suddenly turns into blood.

INT. Hallway

The water bed explodes red blood like lava erupting from a volcano. SixKiller is thrown out of his room by a flood of red blood. His body crashes into the window.

EXT. Red Castle – NIGHT

As his body falls out the window, the pieces of glass float in the air around him. SixKiller turns his head slowly and reaches for the wall with his metallic arm.

His metallic hand suddenly turns into claws. He strikes the wall with his claws as his body slams into the wall.

SixKiller looks up and starts to climb up the wall.

INT. Corridor

Teri walks alone across the small corridor. Hanging on the wall is a portrait of a rich Englishwoman. Behind her, a portrait of the children hangs on the left and right walls.

Teri ducks as the ceiling bursts into flames. A YELLOW DEMON with claws is clawing through the portrait behind her. A large DEMON-DOG chews at the wall from the portrait on the left. A WHITE DEMON with yellow fangs and no eyes is crawling out of the portrait on the right.

INT. Circular Staircase

At the middle of the circular staircase, Drake looks up when he hears Cheri screaming.

CHERI

Aaah!

All of a sudden, the steps of the circular staircase turn straight.

Drake slides down the flat staircase.

DRAKE

Oh shi…

INT. Corridor

SixKiller wraps his black trenchcoat over Teri’s head. Pieces of the burning ceiling are falling onto the floor.

SixKiller aims his gun at the wall and fires three shots.

The wall moans and bleeds from the bullet holes.

SIXKILLER

The castle! It’s alive!

INT. Red Castle

Drake stumbles towards Gary, who is standing at the corner.

DRAKE

Gary! What the hell is going on?

Drake puts his hand on Gary’s shoulder.

DRAKE

Gary, are you listening to me?

Gary turns around and scares Drake. He is ripping his face off with his hands. His eyes and mouth are wide open. He bleeds profusely from the slashes on his face.

Gary’s head suddenly explodes.

INT. Apartment Room – FLASHBACK

Close-up of Rachel looking sad.

RACHEL

What do you mean I shouldn’t take the job?

Rachel stands next to the large window, where the sun’s yellow rays enter the room. Bronx sits at his chair, staring at the blank television screen. 

BRONX

Don’t take the job.

RACHEL

But this is my dream job.

I have to move to L.A.

Why don’t you come with me?

BRONX

I can’t.

RACHEL

This isn’t fair.

Rachel shakes her head at Bronx.

RACHEL

What are you so afraid of?

BRONX

I’m not afraid.

RACHEL

There’s nothing here for you in New York.

Aren’t you tired of getting by with that job?

Don’t you want more. We can…

BRONX

My life is here in New York.

I’m stuck here.

I’m not going to leave because you tell me.

RACHEL

Don’t you want to be with me?

Bronx does not respond as he stares at the blank screen.

Rachel walks towards the door.

RACHEL

You do this every time when something changes, you hide. I’m taking this job. Whether you want to stay with me, that’s your choice. I just hope you enjoy being alone.

Rachel slams the door as Bronx leans back in his chair.

Int. Red Castle – PRESENT DAY

SixKiller rolls up his sleeves, revealing his metallic arm. He has two guns crisscrossed at his belt.

SIXKILLER

I say we send this place back to Hell.

Drake puts on his red eye goggles while he carries the machine-gun with the flashlight on.

DRAKE

I second that notion.

Drake sprays a white mist from the machine gun all over the portrait of Lord Stanton.

SIXKILLER

What’s that?

DRAKE

Ghosts show up when it gets cold.

A giant skeleton wearing Sir Stanton’s clothing jumps out of the portrait with his bony hands reaching for Drake.

Drake opens fire, yelling at the top of his lungs.

The giant skeleton rips out Drake’s head with its mouth. The rest of Drake’s body continues firing.

CHERI

Drake!

The cables holding the chandelier begin to stretch as the ceiling cracks.

SixKiller dashes after Cheri as she screams at the chandelier swinging at her.

They both hit the floor as the chandelier crashes into the fireplace.

HOUSE

Release me!

Cheri pulls her hair as she screams.

CHERI

We have to get out of here!

HOUSE

Release me now!

SixKiller aims and blasts away at the ceiling. Behind him, Cheri speeds towards the fireplace.

SIXKILLER

Why don’t you shut up!

The chandelier explodes inside the fireplace. Fire spits out showering Cheri with the flames.

CHERI

Nooo!

Cheri collapses and dies on the chessboard floor as her body continues burning.

The chessboard floor shakes. SixKiller watches the walls compress around him.

While lying on the floor, SixKiller sees hands punching out of the chessboard floor.

ZOMBIES, with red eyes and torn clothing, are breaking through the chessboard floor.

HOUSE

Let me live! Let me out! Let me out now!

SixKiller punches three zombies out of his way with his metallic fist.

SixKiller throws a zombie over his head with one hand as the rest surround him. He runs firing both of his guns straight across.

SixKiller turns around and hides his metallic arm behind his back.

SIXKILLER

Let’s see what this baby can do!

A circular razor saw punches out of his right metallic hand.

SIXKILLER

Bitchin!

Surrounded by zombies, SixKiller splits one of them in half with his razor saw. Blood splashes everywhere.

SIXKILLER

Yeah! Now that’s what I’m talkin about!

SixKiller’s face is bathed in blood as he continues to slice and dice the zombies with his razor saw.

With his knees bent, half of his trenchcoat ripped apart, and his clothing drenched in blood, SixKiller wipes his bloody chin with his left hand.

Blood drips from his razor saw. SixKiller stands on a puddle of blood, with his feet surrounded by moving body parts.

HOUSE

Release me!

SixKiller puts his left hand inside what has remained of his trenchcoat.

HOUSE

Release me!

SixKiller takes out a small gray grenade.

HOUSE

Release me!

SixKiller bites the pin out of the grenade with his teeth.

HOUSE

Release me!

He throws the grenade into the hole the zombies came out of.

INT. Hole

More zombies are crawling out of the hold. The grenade bounces over their heads before finally exploding.

EXT. Red Castle – DAWN

Using his super-speed, SixKiller makes it far away from the red castle.

SixKiller stands alone at the paved road as the red castle behind him explodes. A giant fireball appears in the orange sky.

EXT. Streets – DAY – FLASHBACK

Rachel, wearing a white blouse and blue jeans, stands in front of her yellow car with the passenger’s door open. She looks up one last time at the window of their apartment building.

Once she gets inside, her yellow car starts driving away.

INT. Apartment Room

Bronx sits alone in the white bedroom staring at his wallet. Inside his wallet is a picture of Rachel. He closes his eyes tightly.

BRONX

Do you always want to be alone?

INT. First Floor

Bronx runs out of the white elevator, bumping into people.

EXT. Streets – Day

Bronx runs into traffic, dashing across in-between vehicles. He jumps from one hood of a parked car onto another. He leaps off the engine of another car and continues running.

From the point of view of the rearview mirror, Bronx grabs the handle of the door.

Rachel gets out of the car shocked. Bronx places his hand on his chest as if his heart wants to leap out.

BRONX

Rachel…wait…I’m sorry.

Bronx puts his arms around Rachel.

BRONX

I want to be with you.

I’ll go.

I’ll go with you.

I don’t want to lose you. I’m sorry.

I love you so much.

Bronx then plants his lips on Rachel’s.

BRONX

I love you. I will always be there for you.

INT. Gray Room

Bronx sits alone in his room staring at what he has written on the paper with the typewriter.

BRONX

(voice-over)

I will always be there for you. Words that will haunt me forever.

FADE TO BLACK
