Dark City script
Dark City (1998)
Synopsis: John Murdoch (Rufus Sewell) awakens alone in a strange hotel to find that he is wanted for a series of brutal murders. The problem is that he can't remember whether he committed the murders or not. For one brief moment, he is convinced that he has gone completely mad. Murdoch seeks to unravel the twisted riddle of his identity. As he edges closer to solving the mystery, he stumbles upon a fiendish underworld controlled by a group of ominous beings collectively known as the Strangers.

MANAGER O.S.

(Cont.)

When you gonna pay up? That's three

weeks y-owe me!

Totally confused now, Walker sees something.

WALKER:

I...

WALKER'S P.O.V. - a painting on a wall (cheap print variety) -

waves on a beach. A breeze rustles the pages of a calender, pinned

beside the picture.

TIGHT ON WALKER - MOVE IN on his ear. O.S. surf crashes on

shore. A WOMAN'S VOICE WHISPERS:

VOICE O.S.

What's your name... What's your

name...

He backs away from the painting, looks around in panic - sees a

sign:
TOILETS. An outlined hand points the way.

A PHONE on the front desk starts ringing.

The MANAGER, a squat man with glasses, steps through the bead

curtain just in time to see Walker run from the lobby.

MANAGER:

(calls after him)

Hey!

He grabs the receiver aggressively and barks into it.

MANAGER:

(Cont.)

Yeah. What?

INT. HOTEL CORRIDOR - NIGHT

ANGLE FOLLOWS Walker as he pushes shakily through a red door, runs

down a corridor.

Pipes on the walls steam and drip water.

Walker rounds a corner, slips, nearly falls.

INT. MENS' ROOM - NIGHT

Puddles on the floor, stains on the walls.

Walker bursts through the door and into a cubicle. He bends over a

toilet bowl and VOMITS.
