They (2002)
Synopsis: They (also known as Wes Craven Presents: They) is a 2002 American supernatural horror film directed by Robert Harmon. The plot centers on a group of four adults named Julia Lund, Sam Burnside, Terry Alba, and Billy Parks and their experience with the phenomenon of night terrors and the impact they had on their lives as children and how they come back to haunt them as adults. The film was produced by Ted Field, Tom Engleman, and Wes Craven who served as executive producer. The film stars Laura Regan, Ethan Embry, Dagmara Dominczyk, Jay Brazeau, and Marc Blucas. The title is a reference to the fact that the creatures are only referred to as "They" as their origins are ambiguous. The film was a box office bomb and had lukewarm reviews from critics.

Paul looks away. Julia knows how painful this is and won't insult him

by trying to diminish it.

Julia smiles and runs her finger across his tie knot.

JULIA:

I like your tie. UCLA colors.

PAUL:

School spirit. I am a Bruin.

The lines start moving towards the stadium. Hundreds of CHEERS rise up from the

graduating students.

As she walks, a sound draws Julia's attention. Standing on the lawn is a SMALL

BOY, no more than four years-old, SOBBING and clinging to his mother's legs.

Julia stops walking as she gazes at the child. The line comes to a halt behind her.

PAUL:

(cont'd)

Julia.

We can't graduate unless you move.

JULIA:

Sorry.

She stalks walking again. Paul puts his arms around her.

EXT. SAM'S HOUSE - GARDEN - DAY

A big, traditional house nestled in the hills. PARENTS and graduating STUDENTS

exchange polite conversation in the yard.

EXT. SAM'S HOUSE - BACK PORCH - DAY

Sitting between a pair of open french doors is "the gang" consisting of Julia

and Paul and Terry and Sam. They throw around conversation, ignoring the party.

TERRY:

It's secluded?

Nobody said anything to me about the cabin being secluded.

JULIA:

I said it was a cabin in the woods.

I thought seclusion was a given.

TERRY:

I'm no good out in the woods. You know what lives in the woods?

Animals that sting. Animals that bite.

PAUL:

So avoid the animals.

JULIA:

I really appreciate you guys helping me.

I couldn't move everything alone.

SAM:

Hey, it's our last chance to be together. Terry and I are excited.

(turns)

Aren't we, Ter?

She's not excited.

TERRY:

Can I bring my cotton bedsheets to the cabin? If I try to sleep

in anything but cotton, I get hives.

JULIA:

Whatever makes you happy.

I always wanted to be a screenwriter ever since I was a kid. I can still remember seeing Poltergeist (1982) in the theater when I was really young, and hearing the audience screaming their lungs out when JoBeth Williams is trapped in the swimming pool with all of the decomposing skeletons. And I just thought, "I want to get an audience to do that." Interview, 2002. more…
