Thirteen Ghosts script
Synopsis: A state-of-the-art remake of the classic William Castle horror film about a family that inherits a spectacular old house from an eccentric uncle. There's just one problem: the house seems to have a dangerous agenda all its own. Trapped in their new home by strangely shifting walls, the family encounters powerful and vengeful entities that threaten to annihilate anyone in their path.

RAFKIN:

Come on, Cyrus, I gotta take theedge off.

CYRUS:

You know the routine. First

things first. Now where is he?

Cyrus holds it in the limo headlights; an aerial photoof the graveyard. Rafkin, closing his eyes, reachesout towards the photo with one hand, then touches the

earth with the other. A silent moment.

CYRUS:

Where?

Then a huge spark arcs between the psychic and theground. Rafkin jolts back, as if shocked.

RAFKIN:

Sweet Jesus, Cyrus, there's got tobe over forty victims here! I

thought you said this guy killedtwenty people.

CYRUS:

Twenty when he was alive. He's

added a few more since then.

Now where's the Breaker, Dennis?

Rafkin ignores the photo, and points at a spot deepinside the auto graveyard. Cyrus grabs a headset from

the Assistant.

CYRUS:

(into microphone)

All teams go to alpha. I

repeat!-

THIRTEEN GHOSTS -Rev. 10/27/00 4.

4 EXT. AUTO GRAVEYARD -NIGHT 4

Teams of men pile out of the vehicles. The back of the

semi is opened, revealing racks of remote-operatedamplifiers.

Others unload inch-thick, eight-foot-square sheets ofglass, rimmed with aluminum pipe, and inscribed withancient text.

The glass sheets are assembled to form a large cube.

Arrays of flood lamps illuminate the canyons of thewrecking yard in stark white.

One side of the cube remains open... allowing entryand --ready to come down in theory, and close theimprovised "mousetrap."

Rafkin walks up behind Cyrus, still massaging histemples.

RAFKIN:

Where'd he get a name like the Breaker

anyway? He a truck driver?

CYRUS:

It's simply folklore at work.

The local color exorcising its

demons...

Just then, a hideous HOWL ECHOES through the night -part

human, part God-knows-what. Everyone stops.

Nearly all his books are out of print; nevertheless, White has a devoted following among baby boomers, many of whom were introduced to him through inexpensive paperbacks available in American schools in the mid-20th century. more…
