A scream rises to an ominous crescendo as we SHOCK CUT INTO -
MONTAGE of fast moving clips. Death, destruction, fear. All images
taken from the previous ten Friday The 13ths.
The year is 2455. The place is Old Earth. Barren, void of life, a
hazardous and violent planet. The sky is blood red with spiked clouds of
dark gray. It is beautiful, but frighteningly foreign.
BLUE LIGHTNING CRACKLES as several figures rush through a DUST STORM
Small groups of people, wearing thick dusters, goggles and masks, work
nearby. Some dig in the cracked earth, others take assorted readings
with strange devices.
This is an archeological expedition.
INT. DARK PLACE
The dust storm rages outside. Two figures are looking closely at a small
object buried in the dirt. One of them pulls a device out of their pouch
and slowly, gently picks up the object. The other uses a magnetic tool
to remove the dirt.
Careful . . .
They take off their masks and goggles. They are both young. ADRIENNE
female (17) watches as STONEY male (18) studies the object closely.
Not guaranteed, if used After 2198.
CLOSE UP of the object. It's an unopened condom.
You thinking what I'm thinking?
Stoney tosses the high tech equipment over his shoulder and rips open
the condom as Adrienne rips her clothes off.
PULL BACK TO REVEAL
They are in a half buried mini-van. It rocks violently from the raging
storm outside and from the raging lust inside.
BACK INSIDE THE VAN.
What about Kkinsa?
STONEY is desperately trying to take off her bra.
It's over between us. You're the
only one for me!
METAL SCREECHES! THE FLOOR COLLAPSES!
They fall some ten feet, RUBBLE RAINING down on top of them.
INT. DARK CORRIDOR
A rusty metal ladder. Debris everywhere. Half inch layers of dust cover
everything. Dead. Lifeless.
Adrienne sits up, shines her light down the long metal corridor. She
turns her light on STONEY then sees something over his shoulder.
SHE SCREAMS A BLOOD CURDLING SCREAM.
We PULL BACK, out of the tunnel, through the van as the sounds of the
storm drown out ADRIENNE'S SCREAM.
EXT. BASE CAMP
The digging and readings have stopped. A group approaches a time scarred
shuttle and begin loading their packs into the cargo belly.
FAT LOU (40), rail thin, possible female, pilot, appears at the top of
the shuttle ramp.
(yelling over the wind)
Let's go! Time to load up!
YLLO(33), a professor of archaeology lowers his veil.
I'm missing two!
Shit! Temp's dropping! We should have
left this rock an hour ago!
(eyes a device)
North three clicks.
EXT. MINI-VAN - DAY
YLLO and the rest of the group run into view. BOEMAN (18), husky,
physical; holds out a device and checks the reading.
He points to the rusted out mini-van sitting on its belly.
KICKER(30), bulky, short on temper, rushes up wearing futuristic
military garb -
Yo, Teach, what the fuck?
We're missing two of the kids!
Get your ass back to the shuttle.
I'll check it out.
KICKER moves past the group and into the Van.
Not without me!
The rest of the gang look at each other and climb into the Van.
INT. ANCIENT CORRIDOR
YLLO and the others climb down a rusted ladder. Metallic walls,
graffiti, cluttered floors. No Stoney or Adrienne. A sign from the
ceiling states -
CRYSTAL LAKE RESEARCH FACILITY.
They all take off the goggles and masks. The rest of the group consists
of DELONGPRE(18) good looking, smart ass; JANESSA(17) sexual, scheming
AZRAEL(17) SMALL, COCKY; KKINSA(16), insecure, problematic;
THORGAN(17), a nerd but doesn't know it.
