Watch it now
EXT. LONELY COUNTRY ROAD. DAY.
An empty ribbon of asphalt. Winding through an endless
stretch of meadows and farmlands. For a long moment, silence.
Then, a distant speck. A car moving toward us.
A SOUND APPROACHING WITH IT NOW. A RADIO BLARING AND TWO
RAISED VOICES SINGING WITH IT.
TRISHA JAMES is a beautiful girl of twenty. Hair blowing in
the breeze of the open passenger window. She sings out,
banging the side of the car with her hand. Keeping the beat
of the boisterous rock song.
She sings with younger brother DARRY. Nineteen. Attractive
like his sister. Lighter hair. Softer looking. Striking eyes.
Voice raised as they speed along. Trying to swallow up the
road as quickly as possible.
The backseat has a couple of suitcases and a large basket
wrapped in a garbage bag. The song comes to an end as Darry
flies through an abandoned intersection.
That was a stop sign.
You're kidding, right?
In your car I'd be kidding.
You think we're actually gonna
run into anyone else on this
(turns the radio louder,
shouts over it)
Enjoy the countryside!
The ANGRY MUSIC WAILING and the car blasting down the
tranquil road. We watch as it heads for what seems like
EXT. LONELY COUNTRY ROAD. DAY. SOME TIME LATER.

camper/trailer. Brother and sister stare at the license

'Cause it says "Sexy Forever",
stupid, that's mine. That's
five to four.
Since when did you start aceing
me at this game?
Since you were ten. It
involves English and reading.
Darry guns the engine. Goes into the oncoming lane to pass
Come on, Darry.
They pass the cab of the truck. An OLD MAN of sixty behind
the wheel. His WIFE next to him. He glares down at Trish and
Darry as they pass him.
Sexy forever huh?
You know that is you in forty

WOOOONNNNKKKKKK!!!!! A DARK VAN HAS SUDDENLY LURCHED BEHIND
THEM BLARING ITS HORN.
(swerves a little)
The van is tailgating them at an alarming velocity. Rattling
and shimmying it is so old and distressed.
What's this guy trying to do?!
He tries to find the driver in the rearview. The Van's
windshield is heavily tinted.
