Heavy Metal script
Heavy Metal (1981)
Synopsis: Adventures from deep space to futuristic New York, and beyond. Each world and story is dominated by the presence of the Loch'nar -- the sum of all evils manifest as a glowing green sphere whose power infects all times, all galaxies, all dimensions. To some, it appears as treasure, a green jewel they must possess. Others worship it as a god. Few escape it. Even in death and through death its powers continue. From war to war and world to world it seems invincible.

CUT TO:

THE GIRL'S BEDROOM

The girl yawns and gets into bed as the camera pans over to

her basket in the corner. Through its side, the green ball

begins to glow brightly.

Getting closer, we see a slimy silk-like webbing ooze out of

the ball and move towards the sleeping girl, pulling the green

ball behind it.

The ball starts to glow and pulse as the webbing begins to

surround the girl, like a cocoon. Slowly the camera pans

up the wall, and moves out through the window, and beyond

the city gates, rising higher and higher.

CUT TO:

THE OUTLANDS:

Flying quickly overtop futuristic villages, the camera

heads further and further out into the less civilized sectors,

where the rusting pipelines and crumbling utility stations of

a past civilization have been overgrown by scrub-bush and weeds.

The camera zooms across this strange landscape toward the distant

mountains where the huge planetoid fell. Finally, from high

above the foothills, we begin to come down.

In the hills below us, hundreds of blue humanoid barbarians are

moving along, mesmerized, toward a pulsing green glow high in

the mountaintops. Suddenly the mountains begin to rumble.

CUT TO:

THE LINE OF BARBARIANS

At the front of the line, the largest barbarian - obviously

their leader - stops and points.

CUT TO:

THE MOUNTAINS:

A strange, green, foamy liquid comes pouring down the mountains

toward the barbarians.

CUT TO:

THE LINE OF BARBARIANS

The barbarians stand frozen as the foam washes over them and keeps

on going. One by one, their eyes turn green and they start to

change, becoming hairier, uglier, and stronger.
