Bellflower

Synopsis: Bellflower follows two friends as they venture out into the world to begin their adult lives. Literally all their free time is spent building flame-throwers and weapons of mass destruction in hopes that a global apocalypse will occur and clear the runway for their imaginary gang "Mother Medusa". While waiting for the world to end, their call to excitement comes unexpectedly when one of them meets a charismatic young woman and falls hard in love. Quickly integrated into a new group of friends, they set off on a journey of betrayal, love, hate, infidelity and extreme violence more devastating and fiery than any of their apocalyptic fantasies. Often life's simplest and most obvious truths are the hardest to see, but once you've burned everything to the ground it may be the only thing left standing.

Okay.

Imagine...

the apocalypse

is just starting, right?

Okay,

I'm imagining it. Okay.

And nobody's ready, right?

'Cause it just happened,

and its all chaos,

and everybody is like,

"What do we do?

Like, the f*cking world is ending."

And we roll up

in the most evil-looking,

rumbling, badass,

flame-throwing muscle car.

And one of us gets out...

with a hundred pounds ofbrass

and steel strapped to our back...

and just starts torching everything,

completely surrounded by fire.

Okay?

Who do you think

is going to be in charge?

Mother Medusa?

Motherf*cking Medusa.

Dude, I'm really not feeling

like going out again tonight.

That was the worst thing

that could have happened.

I don't know if that's the worst thing

that could've happened.

She could have spit on me

or kicked me in the balls.

That would've been awesome.

We could've got beat up.

Okay, listen.

We're going out again tonight.

I, for real, am starting to feel like girls

don't even like me anymore.

Do you know what I was thinking earlier

when I was looking into your eyes...

when you were holding

that big gun by me?

What?

Dude, you harsh reminded me

of Lord Humungous.

No, I'm serious.

It was awesome.

And I was the Birdman.

It was sweet.

Okay, listen.

We're going out tonight,

and if I even catch you

looking at someone...

I don't care if it's a f*cking guy...

you're gonna hit on them.

You're gonna pick them up,

you're gonna take them home,

and I am gonna be right

by your side the whole time.

Like, the whole time.

Okay.

Until the finishing act.

All right.

So we're sure

we don't need that tank?

Yeah.

All right.

You worried about ricochet?

Dude, you're holding a 12-gauge,

double-barrel, sawed-off shotgun.

We're gonna be fine.

All right. Okay.

Wait.

That's settled then.

We're switching to diesel.

Propane is for pussies.

Propane is for pussies.

Come on. It's time to get ready, dude.

Ladies and gentlemen,

if I could have your attention

for a couple moments.

My name is John Huck,

and it is time for the main event.

Oh, yeah!

Whoo!

Take a look

at these nice little...

crickets!

All right. Hey...

Where's my spotlight?

Hello. All right. Thank you.

Now what I need are two dumb-asses

to come up here...

and compete

in a cricket-eating contest...

for this $50 gift certificate

to some shitty restaurant.

Hey, Johnny! What's up?

Is that f*cking Milly?

I'll eat some bugs.

What's the big deal?

Okay. Anybody here have what it takes...

to, uh, beat this innocent little girl?

What's up? What is up?

I'll take on that little daddy's girl.

Okay.

Oh, damn. That sounds

like a threat to me, right?

All right, everybody. We

got a match! Yeah!

You're gonna get your ass kicked.

Dude, I think that was the sweetest thing

I've ever seen you do.

I think that was the

stupidest thing I've ever done.

Dude, did you get her

phone number? F*ck you.

Hey, guys.

Oh, my God,

if it isn't the criminal bitch...

who stole all the glory

from my main man.

- Hey, it's what I do.

- What's up? Have a seat.

All right.

Oh. Hey.

Hey.

That was quite the show

you put on up there.

Aw, thank you.

Yeah, it's been, like, 12 hours...

since I've seen a girl put that

much gross shit in her mouth.

Oh, wow.

Quite the charmer.

I'm sorry. Um, I'm Aiden.

Milly.

Just to let you guys know,

that's probably the dumbest f*cking thing

I've seen anybody do for $50 in my life.

Oh, you think that's dumb?

You guys should've been here last week.

What? We were here
