Innerspace (1987)
Synopsis: A scientifically miniaturized marine unexpectedly finds himself floating around the body of a hypochondriac, and trying to outwit saboteurs who want the device that shrank him. Attempts by his colleagues to retrieve the little man - protected inside a tiny submersible - are hampered by the would-be thieves.

THE INTRUDERS - walk to the access door. They are

armed, disciplined, well drilled. Movement is unhurried

but efficient. They carry submachine guns. A GUARD eyes them placidly.

Their LEADER speaks through a radio directly into the UST

intercom. He is assured and calm. The GUARD is bemused... drugged.

LEADER:

Hello.

GUARD:

Hello

LEADER:

We'd like to come in.

The guard is lethargic. The gas has sapped his will.

One part of his brain cannot accept what he is about to do. He

giggles softly at the thought of it, even as he is compelled to

obey.

GUARD:

(giggling)

You'd like...to come in...

LEADER:

Open the door please.

GUARD:

(still giggling)

Open the door?... Certainly.

The door pops open. They enter and pass the bemused

guard.

LEADER:

Thank you.

GUARD:

My pleasure.

INT. LAB AREA

Everyone is smiling...stoned. The

LEADER speaks to them like children, not to be funny, but because

low-key orders are the most efficient. They are completely

suggestible.

LEADER:

Hello.

TECH:

Hello.

LEADER:

We've come for the PEM114.

Where is it?

TECH 2

Right there.

LEADER:

Thank you.

The INTRUDERS step up to the lab equipment. Another

tech...steps forward...He is struggling against the effects of

the drug.

TECH 3

Wait.

LEADER:

Why?

TECH 3

You can't take that.

LEADER:

Why not?

TECH 3

The experiment. The danger...

THE VOICE is soothing, calming, hypnotic, but the

submachine guns are always in position.
