Looks up. It HOWLS.

EXT. TARKER'S MILLS NIGHT - MOONLIGHT

We're looking at Main Street of a small country town - might

be New England, might be mid-South. Might be 1984, might be

1981. This is Tarker's Mills, and in places like this, time

moves more slowly. Cars - not too many - move back and

forth. No one is in a hurry.

We see the Methodist church (and the parsonage next door);

Andy's Sporting Goods; Owen's Pub, with its Narragansett

neon sign. We see a barber shop with a striped pole; we see

the Holy Family Catholic Church and the rectory next door.

We see the Gem Theater, which is showing a revival of Sophia

Loren in "Two Women."

It's Our Town, U.S.A.

JANE (voice-over)

This place is Tarker's Mills, where I

grew up... and this is how it was when I

was fourteen - a place where people cared

about each other as much as they cared

about themselves. This is how my town

looked as, all unknowing, it approached the

rim of the nightmare. The killing had begun.

SOUND:
The HOWL of the WEREWOLF - distant, a bit dreamy.

EXT./INT. TARKER'S MILLS MONTAGE NIGHT

a.) VIRGIL CUTTS, owner of Virgil's Texaco, is filling up a

car. We hear the HOWl... and VIRGIL looks up uneasily.

b.) In the barber shop, BILLY McCLAREN, the barber, is just

taking the apron off the Methodist minister, REV. O'BANION.

They both look around.

c.) Folks are coming out of the Gem Theater. They pause at

the sound of that HOWL and look toward the edge of town.

EXT. THE SETTING MOON, CU NIGHT

As JANE speaks, we see the moon sink below the horizon.

JANE (v-o)

The killing had begun, but at first no

one knew it. Arnie Westrum was a chronic

drunk, and what happened seemed like an

accident.

EXT. THE RAIL-RIDER AND ARNIE'S HEADLESS BODY NIGHT
