Spare Me script
Spare Me (1994)
Synopsis: Spare Me is a 1992 "bowling noir" film that, as one film reviewer wrote, "twists conventions of the Western and thriller genres within its parallel universe of bowling monomania. Matthew Harrison's feature film directorial debut, the 16mm feature was made for less than $80,000 US and won awards at the Rome Film Festival, New Orleans Film Festival, Long Island Film Festival and others.

SID:

Evening Tina.

BREEZE:

Good luck tonight Tina.

Tina opens a door and goes down some stairs.

THEO:

You guys got something going on

downstairs?

SID:

We provide some extracurricular

activities for the senior citizens in the

community.

THEO:

Basement bingo?

Breeze sniggers into his hand

SID:

(smirks)

Yeah, basement bingo.

BREEZE:

Lemme see your ball.

Breeze grabs Theo's bag.

THEO:

Let go of my bag.

Sid sidles around behind Theo who tries to keep him in sight.

BREEZE:

Ah, come on, lemme see your ball.

SID:

You afraid we're gonna steal it?

Breeze unzips the bag and pulls the ball out. Theo's temper

is rising, he breathes deeply. He is obviously making a

Herculean effort to keep himself in check.

THEO:

I said, let go of my bag.

With lightning speed Theo's hand shoots out and grabs the

middle fingers on Sid's right hand. Sid howls in agony.

SID:

Aagh! Stop! Those are my bowling fingers!

THEO:

Tell your little pal to let go.

SID:

Breeze, give him his ball back!

Breeze, astonished, drops Theo's ball into the bag. Sid

cringes in front of Theo.

THEO:

Where can I find Buzz Fazeli?

BREEZE:

Whoa, cool your maples. Over the bridge,

past the Peter Pan, last house on the

dead end. Theo releases Sid's hand. Sid

drops to his knees and cradles his

damaged hand.

BREEZE:

Haven't seen a ball like that since '69.

THEO:

It belonged to my dad.

Theo turns and walks out.

10 EXT. WOODS - NIGHT 10

JUNIOR, a dumpy man in his late thirties with a rat tail, bad

skin and wearing a white straitjacket and fluorescent orange

pants, runs desperately through dark woods. Bloodhounds BARK

in the distance.

11 EXT. ROAD - NIGHT 11

Theo drives over the draw-bridge and past the Peter Pan Diner

with its huge neon sign.
