Chain Reaction

Synopsis: A prison bus with over a dozen criminals on board has an accident and rams another car, in which Dr. Douglas Madsen was on his way home. Most of the prisoners die. Four of them survive, one of them severely injured. After having killed all the guards, they head for the woods. They take Dr. Douglas Madsen hostage. Suddenly a huge house appears in the middle of the woods. The leader of the group, Arthur, emphasizes that he will kill Douglas and every single member of the "family" if his wounded brother would die. Meanwhile some members of the family show strange behavior, and very soon mayhem breaks loose.

Come on.

I will always

take care of you,

my poor child.

Yeah, we got delayed.

71, clear.

There was a...

tree on the interstate.

8- 8-14, clear.

No. We can handle it.

You don't need to send anybody.

3- 2, you can return to Western.

Uh, I think about...

two or three hours.

71, clear.


Excuse me,

but I think you're making

a terrible mistake.

You are not supposed

to fucking think.

If he doesn't make it,

you won't make it. That's it.

Well, l... I tried to tell you before.

I can't do very much for him

here in the woods.

The painkillers'll keep the pain

at a minimum for a few hours,

but what he really needs

is professional care.

What are you trying to tell me,

you're not a fucking professional?

Wait. What I want...

I'm trying to say is

he needs to go to a hospital.

Well, I think that the only hospital

that will take him

is the maximum-security hospital

of the Seattle state penitentiary.

But hey, why don't

we ask the patient?

What up, little brother?

You wanna go back to Seattle?

I think we'll take that as a negative.

Now you had better

come up with a better solution,

or I will blow your ass away.

And, Doctor, that is a promise.

I don't know too much about this,

but maybe we should

think about it, huh?

I mean, it's pretty insane

to head up to the mountains

in November.

- It's fucking dangerous.

- You think I don't fucking know that?

I also know that that is

the way to the Canadian border.

Now, we head north, and that's that.

What is it good for

if we freeze to death

- or starve before we get anywhere?

- We will make it!

And then the good doctor here

is gonna help out Spence.

Right, Doc?

All right.

We got about two fucking hours,

so stop your arguing, and let's go.

What do you mean

we got two fucking hours?

The cops think that a tree fell down

in front of the interstate.

Our driver was cooperative

about relaying that message

before I blew

his fucking head off.

They're probably on their way

over here now, so let's go.

Good. The time.

What time is it?

Dr. Bates, Dr. Madsen speaking.

Uh, unfortunately not.

No, they refused to give us a better price

on the tomography scanner.

No. I think I'm gonna

put a bid in on a leasing model.

That way, we won't

go way over budget.

Good. OK. I'll be back

in about an hour.

Of course. We can discuss that

when I'm back in the office.

Right. I'll see you at 1:00. Bye.

Quite frankly, I don't agree

with your diagnosis, Dr. Mengele.

If you even try to remove

anything from my brother's body,

I will fucking tear your limbs off.

Arthur, nobody wants

to amputate his arm.

Basically that's what

we all want to avoid,

but certainly you can see we've got

some serious problems here.

It'll take us a few days

before we get to the border.

Do you think he's gonna make it?

'Cause I don't.

Way I see it...

your brother's a dead man walking,

and you just gotta accept that.

All right, you and Vince

are gonna go it alone.

That is, if you think

you can make it,

but remember, I'm gonna

come looking for you both,

and one day, you're

gonna pay your dues.

If Spence and I hadn't

covered your asses in Seattle,

why, you'd be fucking dead now.

It wasn't like that, and you know it.

Oh, f*ck that.

We are all staying together

right up to the end

like we promised.

And you might want

to stop shooting, eh?

Oh, yeah?

Yeah. Because

somebody might hear you!


All right, seems I've stopped

the external bleeding,

and that's really

all I can do right now.

But the artery is still

leaking internally.

Bones in his lower arm are fractured,
