Boys in the Trees

Synopsis: It's Halloween 1997 - the last night of high school for Corey, Jango and their skater gang, The Gromits. Childhood is over and adult life beckons. But for Corey, his past has some unfinished business. When he encounters Jonah, a former childhood friend but now victimized by Jango's cruel streak, Corey takes pity on him and agrees to walk him home for old time's sake. What starts off as a normal walk through empty suburban streets descends into something darker and magical as they tell each other ghost stories, drawing upon their fears of the world around them. As they walk through their memories and ghosts of the past, Corey is surprised to discover how much he still has in common with his abandoned friend. But on the night of the grave's delight, even the most buried truths will find a way of coming to life.

you gotta kill a few lambs.

So which one you gonna be?

- Fine. Go nuts.

- Yeah, that's what I'm talking about!

Now, can you stop being a buzzkill?

Please? It's Halloween.


Care to do the honors?

- Law of the jungle, huh?

- We all live by it, mate.

What are you meant to be?

A sheep in wolves' clothing?


Halloween's just an American

invention to sell lollies.


Oh, yeah? Enlighten me.

'Tis the night,

the night of the grave's delight.

And the warlocks are at their play.

Ye think that without,

the wild winds shout...

...but no, it is they, it is they.

Nice pic. But not your finest hour.

The boys think it is.

'Cause I know they're the first ones

I'd turn to for an art critique.

- What's the problem?

- Who said there was a problem?

You only fry your brain

when there's something on it.

My brain's fine.

At least nangs don't give you cancer.

It's worth it.

Hey, why don't you come down from there?

I hate heights. My bedroom's on the

first floor, and even that freaks me out.

There are way more scary things than falling.

Sort of closing,

circling around her, and then...

You know, you're a much nicer guy

when you're not around them.

We all do shit to fit in.

Is it worth it?

Just 'cause they're good with

a sodastream, doesn't make them...

...amigos para siempre.

- How about you back off my mates?

- These guys don't get you.

We're teenagers.

Nobody gets us. That's half the fun.


Everyone has somebody who understands them.

You're not the only one who wants

out of this town, you know.

Who said I want out?

Got everything I need right here.

Weed to smoke, fags to bash, bitches to...


Spliff's up.



What about you, coz?

Another toke?

I'm good.

Corey! Where are you going?
